the redistribution of my hard-earned wealth, to useless lowlife, dirtbag, subhuman, pieces-of-shit, is pissing me off, no end. Global Warming Cap-and-Trade Scame, Ilegal Immigration Ammnesty, and now his shit. And this guy nails it perfectly:
"Plan To Disenfranchise Middle Class and Poor May Lead To Something Worse Than Socialism."
"Many have asserted there are those who wish to destroy America's economy and replace capitalism and the free enterprise system with European-style socialism or something even worse. I didn't want to believe this. It seemed like a wild conspiracy theory, but the actions of the so-called progressives who dominate our government tell me this is true.
There is a myth President Barack Obama's campaign promise to redistribute America's wealth was top-down, meaning wealth would be taken from the have's and given to the have-nots. However, in reality, Obama's agenda is targeting the middle class and poor as well.
Health care reform represents a perfect example of how Obama will achieve his radical agenda. The fact is, the wealth of the United States is going inside-out, not top-down. The current health care reform law illustrates my point perfectly. Besides the law destroying one of the best health care systems in the world, the United States will be plunged into a chasm of debt from which it might never recover.
Some say the Democratic Party desires to create a form of government akin to European-style socialism. However, one of the primary tenets of Communism is to disenfranchise the middle class and poor. Recent reports from large corporations indicate adherence to the guidelines within the health care reform law will negatively impact their bottom lines and, subsequently, these costs will be passed on to all Americans in the form of higher taxation and skyrocketing inflation. This will have a devastating impact on what is already a struggling economy. For example, AT&T, the nation's largest communications provider, released data reflecting the fact the health care bill will cost this corporation $1 billion in the first year alone of the implementation of this new law. Of course, AT&T will not be the only business which will see its profits greatly reduced. The fact of the matter is the losses suffered by huge corporations and companies are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
But the impact of overhauling America's health care delivery system will also lead to the loss of jobs because many large firms will not be able to offset their expenses by simply passing higher costs along to their customers. The first victims regarding the loss of revenue concerning giant corporations and companies will be their employees. More Americans will lose their jobs and the current unemployment rate of nearly 10% will soon soar. In actuality, the true numbers regarding unemployment are closer to 17%, due to the fact current unemployment statistics do not reflect those who have fallen off the unemployment rolls, taken part-time jobs or have stopped looking for work entirely due to the fact jobs just aren't there. Subsequently, the top-down myth regarding redistribution of wealth is just that...a myth. America's wealth is flowing from the inside-out to nations which own our debt, including China and Japan.
However, since the establishment media is complicit in the radical plan to reform America's form of government, those in the middle class and the poor will eventually blame capitalism for their problems. This was the case in the 1930's when Communist organizations flourished in the United States. Even though President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "New Deal" was in full flower, it took World War II to end the Depression and stifle the myth that Communism was the answer to our nation's woes.
Today, there is a common misperception that the poor are flourishing under Obama's administration. The truth is support for the first African-American President in U.S. history among blacks has decreased by 10% since his election. There has been little or no job creation for those who live in the inner cities and this has led to frustration from many minority leaders who believed Obama's election would be a windfall for the economically depressed. Therefore, the fear regarding whether the U.S. is turning towards socialism may actually be an understatement of what lies ahead for the country."
PS - We're headed for a needless, Constitutional Crisis and real bloody Civil War III, against the fascist, communist Federal Gov't; mark my words.
Around The Garden Center™.
Last Friday was a relatively busy retail day, since the weather was one of the most perfect days we've had this year. We loaded a lot of plant material sold during the 20th Open House and all deliveries and installations were completed, as scheduled. With rain coming over the next 4 days — and we need it badly — things will slow down somewhat, as compared to the wonderful weather we've been through for the past 2-3 weeks.
Saturday and Sunday were fairly busy, despite being cold and rainy, and we did very respectable retail sales numbers, with tree installation bookings already into late May/ early June. Much, much better than 2009. My new Staff Registered Landscape Architect is working on 41 landscape design leads, and is ready to start sending design drawings and numbers to me, to do the Preliminary Estimates for customers' jobs.
Monday was cold and rainy, so I sent everyone home early and closed around 1pm. Dad took Monday & Tuesday off; Jennifer took Tuesday off, and I now take Thursdays off. I had to re-schedule 5 landscape jobs because of Monday's rain, and everyone was very understanding. We'll get them done, but we need "dry-out days" so we aren't working in 3-4" of mud and destroying their lawn areas.
I bought a USDA Prime Bone-In Rib Roast, 9-10 lbs, and 8 USDA Prime Filet Mignon, 8oz, from Allen Bros Steaks last week, and they arrived Saturday, packed in dry ice. I put the Filets away in my 10 CuFt garage freezer, for later use, and will roast the Prime Rib on Thursday, my day off. The Prime Rib should be spectacular eating with plenty of au jus sauce.I've been searching around for "kitchen twine", which doesn't burn in a 500-325°F oven, to tie the Prime Rib ribs together, after rubbing with herbs and spices, and my employee Lee found it at Saubel's, in Stewartstown, and I will pick-up 10-15ft tomorrow, to tie-up the roast.
Wednesday evening, I made the "rub" for the Standing Prime Rib: Kosher Salt, fresh ground black perpper and olive oil. I slatered it all over the piece of meat, put it back in it bag into the 'fridge, to marinate. I also laid-out all the ingredients I'd need, plus made a lost of what I'd have to get the next morning.
On Thursday, my day off, I took the 9-10ib Rib Roast out of the 'fridge, let it come to room temperature for 2-3hrs, and went shopping for what I needed for the Roast, as well as many things I'd run out of, since my back was hurting last Thursday. I'd set the internal (roast) temp timer at 115°F, at approximately 2:15hrs, but I knew it wouldn't take that long, and that the meat would continue cooking another 10-15°F until I let it "rest" and deboned and sliced it. I was back within 1½hrs and it was already at 111°F, so I shut gown the oven, and removed the roast to let it "rest" and retain its juices, before carving.
This is no small feat, like grilling USDA Prime Filet Mignons. It's two solid days of work, but the results are awesome. After letting it cool and "rest", I carved-away the 4 rib bones, with plenty of meat on them for a friend's dog. I had a full platter of 1" cuts and 3 additional plates of ½" cuts, which I bagged-up for Mom &Dad, and for Lee and me for lunch at work. I made large roasting pan of Au Jus Sauce, as well as horseradish/ sour cream & mustard dipping sauces. With everything safely packed-away in airtight Ziploc® Freezer Bags for transport to the Garden Center tomorrow, I began the clean-up. As a Trained Professional Chef in the 80s, in between Advertising/ Marketing Jobs on Madison Ave in NYC, I've learned to clean-up as I go along, so it wasn't a big chore. I finished the whole project about 2:30pm, and laid down on the couch with a heating pad for my aching back.
The "Virtual Cabin"™: A Novella.
Since Monday was a cold, rainy day and I closed at 1pm, I decided to drive to The Cabin, to get Jenny from the Adam's Junction's Vet, Dr. Jayson Martin, pay the bill, and get her re-oriented to The Cabin. I arrived early, checked all the windows and doors, unarmed the alarm system, and went inside. Everything was as I left it last week. So I drove to the Vet's office, and brought Jenny back home. She was all over me "like white on rice" when they brought her out from the boarding kennel, and on the ride back to The Cabin.
I had cleaned-out, washed and refilled her litter boxes on the heavy tarp in the 2nd Bedroom, washed her dry/ wet food
If there were any, I'd have to accompany Jenny everytime I left her outside to run and play, which I planned to do anyway as SOP. I debated humane traps and moving the wild animals far away, knowing full well they'd find their way back to "their territory". The other less desireable options was to shoot and kill all of them, which I didn't want to do, especially the baby cubs. After 3 tours in Vietnam with 3rd Special Forces/ Green Berets, I'd had enough killing for one lifetime. I thought about poison, fencing-off 43 acres, but those wildlife had as much or more right to this land than I do. I felt bad about shooting that 300lb black bear in the head, with my Beowulf .50cal, when it was attacking Jenny, but I wasn't about to "do a Davey Crockett" on it, with just a knife. I called Lt Ron Thompson, PA State Game & Wildlife Control, for suggestions, and left a voicemail. I'd met him at one of the TownHall Meetings earlier in the year, and he'd call back.
By Now, I had the Remy 11-87 12ga outfitted with a 5-shot "sidesaddle" of sabots/ slugs, a bandoleir of 20 rounds of .00 buck, 7 rounds in the tube and 1 in the chamber (100yds). My Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" (75yds) carries 8 165gr HP or 230gr FMJ rounds in a Galco Fed holster, and I have 3 additional 8-round mags in a Galco Mag Belt Carrier. If I feel the need, the Beowulf .50cal 335gr HP is readily-at-hand (200yds), as is the AR-10 7.62 x 51mm (.308cal) NATO round in 20-round mags (900yds), of which I carry 10 loaded spares. So is the Henry Repeater Lever Action, chambered in .357magnum (250yds), with an accopanying (1974) Colt Trooper MK III chambered in .357 magnum (75yds). Plenty of firepower, if required.
But The Cabin is supposed to get me away from all that, and give me rest. If you've read the previous 6-8 entries about my "Virutal Cabin", it's been anything but restful.
I spent 2-3hrs, until dusk, tracking bear and mountain lion tracks, then went back to turn on The Cabin Floodlights, which are normally hooked-up to the Choice One alarm; though it has a manual switch. I found 3 dens, and flagged them with red tape for Lt Ron Thompsom to check out. I didn't spend much time at any of the three, since my scent could have brought the animals out quickly. I learned to stay *downwind* when tracking humans or animals, in The Nam. Less chance of a surprise for me. Now that I had three active dens located, I again called Lt Ron to let him know my progress. He called back on his cell with 5 minutes, and bet me $500 he could find 3-5 more. I declined, but was grateful he'd made an appointment to meet-up with me later in the week, to locate those. He said that 43 acres would probably contain up to 10 birthing dens, depending upon the wldlife, so it looks like a I have a frigging *zoo* here. I gave-up on the cyanide bombs, opting to try to trap them alive and move them elsewhere. As I said, I've had enough killing for one lifetime.
Things Which Make Your Head Explode™.
I watched a History Channel show on Friday evening, called Modern Marvels: Environmental Tech II, a show about "Green Technology" in homes, buildings and cars, and it was total bullshit! Questionable technology and ugly cars. What a waste of our taxpayer monies! BULLSHIT! "Green Technology"? "New Energy Solutions"? "Green Machines"? "Eco Restoration"? TOTAL BULLSHIT! Trying to change and re-manage the Earth's Natural Cycles, will be a disaster.
GIMME A ROLL OF DUCT TAPE! My head is exploding with *Carbon Cedits Crap*!
BRAVO, Gov Jan Brewer and Arizona! Get the stinking illegal filth out of my country!
Some People Just Need Killing.™
It's not my intention to be the judge here — that's God's "job" — but rather to "hasten the meeting" so that He can send the following subhuman filth to the "Fires of Hell", "River or Lake of Sulphur", or whatever He deems appropriate. I'd gladly/happily volunteer, at no cost to any of my Hard-Working, Fellow US Taxpayers, to gladly/gleefully/happily headshoot these murderous, lowlife dirtbags of all stripes — their skin-color doesn't matter to me, at all — and rid American Society's innocents (especially our precious children and the frail, defenseless elderly) of them, once-and-for-all. And yes, I'd rather see one innocent man convicted and executed, than 10 murderers/robbers/child rapists-murderers freed, to rob, rape and murder again. Hey; call me an "Old Fashioned Conservative"! Too harsh? Nah. Just RIGHT!
Yes, I agree with the premise of this article, that "the death penalty is a Noahic Covenant with God, in a post-flood world". Well said, Joe Farrah.
