    Important to note that Banks was the lead recruiter for RB Camar Wheaton of Garland Lakeview Centennial, and he has not signed with Bama.

    Now you understand why there was never any action against the Clintons or Obama, how they destroyed emails and evidence and phones and servers, how they spied and wiretapped, how they lied to FISA, had conversations on the tarmac, sent emails to cover their asses after key meetings, how Comey and Brennan and Clapper never were brought to any justice, how the FBI and CIA lied, how the Steele Dossier was passed along, how phones got factory reset, how leak after leak to an accomplice media went unchecked, why George Soros is always in the shadows, why Romney and Paul and Bush and McCain were all involved, why they screamed Russia and pushed a sham impeachment, why no one ever goes to jail, why no one is ever charged, why nothing ever happens. Why there was no wrongdoing in the FISA warrants, why the Durham report was delayed. Why Hunter will walk scott free. Why the FBI sat on the laptop. Why the Biden’s connection to China was overlooked as was unleashed the perfect weapon, a virus that could be weaponized politically to bring down the greatest ever economy and usher in unverifiable mail in voting. Why the media is 24/7 propaganda and lies, why up is down and down is up, right is wrong and wrong is right. Why social media silences the First Amendment and speaks over the President of the United States. This has been the plan by the Deep State all along. They didn’t expect Trump to win in 2016. He messed up their plans. Delayed it a little. They weren’t about to let it happen again. Covid was weaponized, Governors helped shut down their states, the media helped shame and kill the economy, and the super lucky unverifiable mail in ballots were just the trick to make sure the career politician allegedly with hands in Chinese payrolls that couldn’t finish a sentence or collect a crowd, miraculously became the most popular vote recipient of all time. You have just witnessed a coup, the overthrow of the US free election system, the end of our constitutional republic, and the merge of capitalism into the slide toward socialism. What will happen next? Expect the borders to open up. Increased immigration. Expect agencies like CBP and INS and Homeland Security to be muzzled or even deleted. Law enforcement will see continued defunding. The electoral college will be gone. History erased. Two Supreme Court Justices might be removed. The Supreme Court will be packed. Your 2nd Amendment will be attacked. If you have a manufacturing job or oil industry job, get ready. If you run a business, brace for impact. Maybe you’ll be on the hook for slavery reparations, or have your suburbs turned into Section 8 housing. Your taxes are gonna go up, and businesses will pay more. I could go on and on. There is no real recovery from this. The elections from here on will be decided by New York City, Chicago, and California. The Republic will be dead. Mob rule and appeasement will run rampant. The candidate who offers the most from the Treasury will get the most votes. But the votes voted won’t matter, just the ones received and counted. That precedent has been set. “Benjamin Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when someone shouted out, ‘Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?’” Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Ladies and gentlemen, you will now lose your Republic. You turned from God. You turned from family. You turned from country. You embraced degeneracy culture. You celebrated and looked to fools. You worshipped yourselves selfishly as you took for granted what men died to give you. You disregarded history and all it teaches. On your watch, America just died a little. It’s likely she’ll never be the same again. Some of you have no idea what you’ve done. Sadly, some of you did.

    I tolerated 44 (Obama) for 8 years and kept quiet. Here is my issue with the whole, “let us all be a United States again” that we heard from Joe Biden. For the last 4+ years, the Democrats have gone scorched earth. You have salted the fields and now you want to grow crops. The problem is 72+ million of us have memories longer than a hamster. We remember the women’s march (vagina hats and all) the day after inauguration. We remember the 4 years of attacks and impeachments We remember “not our president” and the “Resistance…” We remember Maxie Walters telling followers to harass us in restaurants. We remember the Presidents spokesperson being kicked out a restaurant. We remember hundreds of Trump supporters physically attacked. We remember Trump supporters getting Doxed, and fired from jobs. We remember riots, and looting We remember “a comedian” holding up the President’s severed head We remember a play in Central park paid with public funding, showing the killing of President Trump We remember Robert de Niro yelling “F" Trump” at the Tony’s and getting a standing ovation. We remember Nancy Pelosi tearing up the State of the Union Address. We remember the total in the tank move on the mainstream media We remember the non-stop and live fact checking on our President and his supporters. We remember non-stop in your face lies and open cover-ups from the media. We remember the President and his staff being spied on. We remember five Senators shot on a ballfield. We remember every so-called comedy show turn into nothing but Trump hate fest. We remember 95% negative coverage in the news. We remember the state governors asking and getting everything they ask for and then blaming Trump for their problems. We remember a Trump top aid verbally assaulted in two DC restaurants. We remember people banging on the Supreme Court doors. We remember that we were called every name in the book for supporting President Trump. We remember that Hollywood said they would leave after Trump was elected but they stayed. This list is endless, but you get the idea. My friends will be my friends, but a party that has been on the attack for 4 long years does not get a free pass with me.

    605Longhorn reacted to Sirhornsalot in December Landscapes – The Beautiful Poinsettia   
    The Beautiful Poinsettia. How did it get here?
    From the Pacific cliffs of Mexico would come a staple for an American Christmas
    Where does the subject of landscaping merge with Christmas, you might ask?
    In many different ways I would reply. But by far the prettiest connection would be the official Christmas flower – the Poinsettia. It is the world’s most economically important potted plant. Each year in the US, some 70 million poinsettias are sold in a period of only six weeks and at a value of $250 million.
    Poinsettias are extremely popular as a Christmas decoration or accent throughout the home and even into the landscape itself. They have been popular for decades, since they were introduced to the United State by the flower’s namesake – Joel Roberts Poinsett in the 1820s. The first US minister to Mexico and also a botanist, Poinsett brought them here but at the time, they looked very different than what they do today.

    Poinsettias grow wild in western Mexico (along the Pacific coast) and down through Guatemala. They only grow on the Pacific side, at the coast, and inside Pacific-facing slopes at mid-elevations in the mountains. Down there, they are shrub-like and at times, tree-like. Their foliage is much more sparse than the Poinsettias we buy in the US.
    How can that be?
    The Poinsettia you see on the retail shelves in the US look the way they do because of a California man named Albert Ecke. You may remember him from appearances on the Tonight Show or Bob Hope’s Christmas Special.
    He is largely responsible for the look of the Poinsettia we’ve come to know. Instead of a gangly shrub/weed as you see in the wild, Ecke instroduced a new form of Poinsettia by “grafting” together two different types of Poinsettias. Eckes’ grafting technique made possible a bushier plant, with every seedling branching as a a result. By grafting, two separate branches (one from each of the two species) are joined together until they grow together, creating a new plant.
    Ecke’s method was a family secret up until the 1990s when a researcher discovered Ecke’s method. That researcher, John Dole, published his findings which allowed competitors to grow and become profitable. However, even today, the Ecke family business still serves 70 percent of the American market and 50 percent of the world market. Today they are grown commercially in green houses in many different locations, including Puerto Rico and Hawaii.
    Back in the early 1900s, a rumor began circulating that the Poinsettias were toxic poisonous. The rumor was false nevertheless, it took root in America anyway. For decades people believed the plant was poisonous but after many studies were done in academia, it was determined that the plant is not in fact poisonous at all. Even as recently at 1970, the US government issued pamphlets claiming the plant was poisonous and to be avoided. “One leaf can kill a child,” they said.

    The studies that showed the plant to be non-toxic, non-deadly did show that temporary stomach illness can occur in some cases when the plant leaves are ingested.
    The same holds true for our furry friends, the cats and dogs. In most cases, no symptoms of eating Poinsettia leaves will occur. In some cases, a mild temporary stomach ailment results in cats or dogs with ingestion.
    During all the studies, no human or canine/feline died as a result of eating the plant.
    So I encourage all to include the Poinsettias in the Christmas display and do so without fear. Put them in groupings or use the singularly, they look great either way.
    I am often asked if these plants can be “saved” after Christmas by planting them in our gardens and landscapes. Unfortunately, these flowers are not tolerant to freezing temperatures and since we normally only see them in winter, transplanting them often nets negative results. They can, however, be kept in green houses.
    What to do this month
    December is not the biggest landscaping month of the year, no doubt. But there are a few things to accomplish this month. Let’s go over them:

    1. The leaves. Yes, all those leaves that have fallen are now becoming a problem. Whether it be holding moisture against things that shouldn’t have moisture, or drying out and becoming a fire hazard. The leaves have got to be dealt with.
    I will suggest that you either use the leaves in your own composting bin, or find a neighbor nearby who does compost and offer your bagged leaves to them.
    Another great idea is to mulch all those leaves into a fine material and then rake it through your lawn. This is putting nutrients back into the soil. As I have said many, many times – the more organic content you can introduce into your soil/turf, the healthier and more beautiful your turf will be. Mulching the leaves is a great way to do that.
    2. Trim those shrubs. Now is a great time to fine tune the trimming of your shrubs without fear of negative impact. We intentionally don’t trim shrubs in the hottest months of summer due to the negative response after the trim with the heat we have. Thats no longer a worry and trimming away the excess actually helps the plant cope with any ice and snow.
    3. Mulching beds – If you haven’t already, make sure you get a really good layer of mulch down on the beds. Mulch helps bedding plants, particularly the dormant perennials, make it through the winter unscathed.
    Do not mulch up the trunk of a shrub or tree. The base of either should have almost no mulch at all around it. Mulch instead over the root zone.
    When mulch is placed around and up the trunk of a shrub or tree, it holds moisture so it begins to rot the tree/shrub at a point where all the pressure of movement (wind) the plant experiences is placed. It also chokes the tree/shrub. Look at it this way – the trunk is a highway of nutrients and moisture to send up into the canopy where the leaves are and where photosynthesis takes place. When you choke off the highway, fewer nutrients and less moisture make it to the top. This will produce a struggling specimen.
    Mulch over the root zone, not against the trunk.
