    I recently posted about my thoughts on relicating to Alaska. First off, thank you all that responded publicly, secondly thank you all that sent PM's 10 fold. It has given me a lot to think about, the pros and cons. Its made me think of a romance I have in my head about the final fronteer, and that romance was just that. It does not sound like AK would be good for me, 20 years ago absolutely, but not today. I recieved almost twice as many PM's from people in one state alone looking for skilled workers, plus with the...

    Counties overlapping Democrat-run cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York top the list of locales that have been losing population, while the biggest inflows of people have been to Arizona, Texas, and Florida, according to census data. A Press Release by the United States Census Bureau revealed that the top county in terms of population loss was Los Angeles County, which lost 90,704 people over a one-year period from 2021 to 2022. Elsewhere in California, Santa Clara County lost 15,650 people and Alameda County lost 14,840 residents.

    Thousands of Californians leaving the Golden State looking to escape the rampant homelessness and high cost of living are landing in neighboring Nevada, overrunning the state's few major cities. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Reno area has seen 25,000 new residents according to reports and is expected to be one of the fastest growing cities in the coming years. An article published by the Los Angeles Times on Thursday found that the droves of residents are moving to northern Nevada and causing issues with pre-settled residents who are seeing rising prices and traffic troubles. The former-Californians are...

    More people moved to Florida than any other state in the country in 2022, according to a new report from the National Association of Realtors. The Sunshine State saw the highest net domestic migration gains last year, with its population growing by 1.9 percent. It was followed by Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee, respectively, with regard to domestic net migration totals. Overall, twenty-six states had more people move into their regions than out. For the past six years, the moving rate in the United States has declined, with the rate reaching a historic low in 2021.
  • Why your church has to replace 32% of its attendance every year: Where have all the church attendees gone? Let’s look at four important components.

    Let’s start with a scenario that your church has an average worship attendance of 100. I use that number for simplicity. The median worship attendance is 65.Now, let’s ask a simple question. How many attendees do you have to add to your attendance in a year to stay even?The answer for a typical church is 32 with a worship attendance of 100. You can double the number to 64 if the church’s attendance is 200.Did you get that? A church has to increase the number of attendees by 32 percent each year just to stay even.In a church with 100...

    New RV shipment data from the RV Industry Association’s (RVIA) February 2022 survey of manufacturers revealed demand for this time of year is at some of the highest levels ever. RVIA said total RV shipments last month topped 53,722 units, an increase of 11.3% compared to the 48,286 units shipped during the same month last year. RV shipments jumped 13.6% through February versus the same point last year with 107,012 wholesale shipments. Red hot demand for RVs continues through 1Q22, well above a ten-year average. “Our latest shipment report shows the RV industry is continuing its strong start to 2022,”...
  • How hunting robber flies snatch victims from the air (employs same interception strategy as guided missiles)

    02/16/2022 12:24:28 AM PST · by LibWhacker ^ | 2/15/2022 | The Company of Biologists
    Robber flies snatch victims from the air using the same interception strategy as guided missiles and falcons, but how do they intercept airborne quarry when their view is obstructed by foliage and clutter? Researchers from the University of Cambridge, UK, and the University of Minnesota, U.S., report in Journal of Experimental Biology that Holcocephala fusca robber flies combine two strategies, one that allows them to swerve around obstructions, with their usual strategy to intercept prey. While many flies are content to land on pieces of fruit or carrion, robber flies (Asilidae) engage in mortal combat. Intercepting smaller insects on the...

  • Should You Move While You Can, Or When You Must?

    This gives an extreme advantage to those few who move first, long before they must. The financial advantage for first movers is equally extreme. Moving is a difficult decision, so we hesitate. But when the window to do so closes, it's too late. We always think we have all the time in the world to ponder, calculate and explore, and then things change and the options we once had are gone for good. Moving to a new locale is difficult for those of us who are well-established in the place we call home. Add in a house we love, jobs/work,...

    Blue states that have repeatedly imposed mask mandates, vaccine requirements, and lockdowns over the last year have lost population to red states that have done away with such policies. Newly released data from the United States Census Bureau reveals that while blue states like California and New York have increasingly lost population from July 2020 to July 2021, red states such as Texas and Florida have seen population increases.

    Are other Freepers looking at or considering leaving the US? No problem dying for my country, not sure if my country is willing to die with me. The older folks will stand, the younger? Be blessed! I can handle the flak, so bring it. We are apparently run by non voted in intelligence groups. They failed to do a cognitive test on Biden, not an accident. Oh ya, Trump lost the election, what a joke.

    An opinion piece at the far-left New York Times admits that the appeal of moving to the Red State of Texas is no mystery. “I’ve lived in California nearly all my life, and it’s still more likely than not that I will remain here; reports of a sudden ‘exodus’ from the state are frequently exaggerated,” writes Farhad Manjoo. “Still, there’s plenty going wrong — soaring housing costs, devastating poverty and inequality, and the cascading disasters brought about by a change in what was once our big selling point, the climate.”

    Fatigued from the punishing and arbitrary restrictions, we saw South Dakota like a man dying of thirst sees a glass of water.I shut the car door and sighed. “I don’t want to go back,” I said, stuffing my mask in the cupholder. We were about to get back on the interstate as we wound our way through Montana toward Washington state, our home. It wasn’t a decision, just how I felt. But saying it out loud set us on an unstoppable course. Just a few months later, we were traveling back across the I-90 to the Black Hills of South...

    NY Post ^ | 08/20/2021 | Bernadette Hogan and Emily Crane
    Andrew Cuomo appears to be all packed up — with no place to go. Moving trucks were spotted Friday outside New York’s Executive Mansion, three days before the disgraced governor has to be out. A U-Haul and at least two pickup trucks were parked outside the mansion in Albany first thing in the morning. At least six workers could be seen unloading dollies and carts from the truck before heading inside. After being unloaded, the U-Haul was then moved out of site from the road. It is not yet clear where Cuomo is headed when he leaves his lavish digs...

    A top scientist at the World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Monday that the world is shifting further away from the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, owing to factors like viral variants, social mixing, the flouting of public health measures and vaccine inequities. Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, epidemiologist and WHO COVID-19 technical lead, noted an 11.5 percent increase in global cases over the last week, with a 1 percent increase in deaths. Europe saw a 21 percent uptick in infections last week, while the Western Pacific experienced a nearly 30 percent increase, for instance. Though data reflects a slight dip...

    It’s not just high-profile movers like Elon Musk and Joe Rogan. They’re joined by about three-quarters of a million people a year.It is no secret that pro-growth policies — low taxes and a light regulatory burden — have propelled population growth in Texas and Florida while the opposite has occurred in California, Illinois, and New York. Elected officials’ response to COVID-19 likely accelerated this trend in 2020, with Florida and Texas netting more than half of the nation’s 1.15 million population increase from mid-2019 to mid-2020. Each state has its own migration patterns, and these shift constantly in response to...

    A string of moving trucks was spotted in Manhattan’s Upper West Side on Saturday, according to Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa. “The mass evacuation of Upper West Siders from NYC is in full effect,” he told the New York Post. Sliwa blamed the city’s decision to house hundreds of homeless people in the neighborhood’s hotels for the exodus. “The moment I walked out on my block, near Central Park West, there was a moving truck. I asked where you going, and they said, ‘Virginia.’ They told me, ‘Curtis, first the pandemic hit us and now the quality of life is...

    Everyone has a love/hate relationship with New York City. It has some of the worst qualities, but it's unlike ANY city elsewhere in the world. But now, the city that never sleeps may be gone forever. In a recent LinkedIn op-ed, New Yorker James Altucher wrote why he believes "New York City is Dead Forever." And Glenn agrees: not only is the city completely boarded up due to ongoing violence, but New Yorkers are leaving in a mass exodus. And they're not coming back. This time, New York may not be "bouncing back" like it's done so many times before.
