t's been over six years since I interviewed "Mr John", at a (now defunct) local, gourmet eatery in Winterstown, PA, and for the most part, he was in charge of that exchange on November 5th, 1998. I was just along to ask a few questions, and pay the bill he stuck me with. (He's an helluva tipper, though.) A lot has transpired since that early Winter day in 1998, and I'm curious as to how Mr John views all the changes which have taken place in our ever-shrinking world. Still wary of Mr John's penchant for "putting interviewers on" (especially if they're yourself... think about it), I found him back at his GC&N pistol range (on the 20ac nursery), practicing with his ultra-high-end, much-liked, Kimber "Eclipse Target II" 1911 .45cal ACP, on Osama bin Laden targets. The interview is transcribed in its entirety, except for several brief periods where he was interrupted by "pesky retail customers", and he summoned one of his retail salesmen to help them with their purchases. This will also be the 2nd Self-Interview the original 1998 Interview being the 1st in an upcoming, multi-article series. Each will deal with a completely different topic, as mentioned, below. Here's Johnnnnnnnnnnny!
Q: Hi, John; do you remember me from 1998?
A: Yes I do, and I'm once again disappointed that I can't do better for an interviewer. How do I keep getting you? That said, I'll try to be more civil toward you and your inane and puerile questions. Okay? Please, continue standing. Nah, sit down; I'm just kidding.
Q: Thanks. Since we last talked, the world has changed in many ways. Gosh, that was almost 6 years ago. How do you feel about all that's happened?
A: Are you kidding? Where to begin? September 11th, 2001 changed our entire, collective world, forever. Do you remember that day? Do you remember where you were and what you were doing? Like the JFK assassination in 1963? I sure do.
Q: Yes, I do. I wept for the loss of humanity that day, and for the future of My Country and Our Way of Life.
A: So did I. My *anger, hate and rage quotient* spiked that day and has stayed at max-volume level, ever since. A so-called exotic religion I knew little about, turned out to be a murderous cult of torture, horror, poverty, oppression, terror, destruction and death, wherever it is found. I've awoken to the reality that islam has declared war on us all, and that we're in this war for the foreseeable future.
Q: What are your opinions about these topics: PC? Liberalism?
Gay Homo-sodomite marriage? Islamofascism? NOW? NAALCP? CAiR? NAMBLA? Jesse Jackson? Corruption? Al Sharpton? Clinton? Murtha? WOT? Corrupt politicians? Kiddie porn? Gun ownership? The Enemy Within? The Fourth Estate? The Fifth Column? WMDs? Sedition? Criminal, illegal aliens? Serial murderers? ACLU? Pedophilia? Jimmy Carter = islamofascism's grandfather? The China threat? Global warming? Taxes? Fat people in speedos? Treason? Abortion? Castro? America For Sale? Mahmoud Ahmedinejad/Iran's nukes? Heck, I could go on and on and on and on and on.
A: Kill all the murderous, muslim-islamic-arab terrorists and cleanse the world of the horror which is the death cult of islam. Read my Journal for the past 10 years, and you'll have my prescient and cogent answers to all those problems. Any questions?
Q: Wow, that's quite a tome, Mr John. Are you sure you mean everything you say in the Journal?
A: Huh? Why would I lie to you or anyone else? The muslim-islamic-arab terrorists are taking over the world, by incrementalism. They get angry when one of us Infidels figures that out and alerts other Infidels. The bloody, murderous, muslim-islamic-arab racists will do everything they can to conquer, convert or kill you and me. The ME is gone; Asia is all but gone; Europe will fall in 15-20 years; South America is being penetrated slowly; and there are millions of them here in North America and the USA, where terrorist cells are already probing further action, testing US Constitution limits, and using our own laws against us. No greater threat to Our Way of Life and Western Civilization has ever existed before. First, Israel; then, America. Is there something you and way too much of the rest of the world, doesn't understand about this obvious fact?
Q: We understand perfectly, since watching events unfold worldwide, after 9-11. Unfortunately, the MSM support the terrorists, aka 'insurgents', 'patriots', 'freedom fighters', 'rebels'... ummm whatever their name de jour is this moment.
A: Wait a minute; I like the 'old format' better. Can we go back to the 'old format', in John's Journal? I miss all the linked URLs, my incisive commentary on the many topics and sub-topics. This Q&A format sucks. Can we go back to the 'old format'?
Q: 'Fraid not; this format is what you stuck us both with, this week, and it looks like for a number of coming weeks, too, hot dog. Live with it.
A: Oh, crap.
Q: Well put, sir. Now, what is America's plan to deal with this impending invasion and probable slaughter and bloodbath?
A: Absolutely nothing; zero, zip, zilch. They're already here. And our feckless president, George W. Bush, can't even name the enemy islam for fear of alienating the 7th century filth and their fellow travellers in the treasonous, seditious and bootlicking media. If you can't *identify the enemy*, you can't win a war against it. The enemy isn't terror, or terrorism; those are merely the methods they use. The enemy is islam. Commie groups like the ACLU and Lawyer's Guild attack our Nation daily, have legally-hamstrung the DoJ, demanding Geneva Convention 'rights' for enemy combatants, who are non-signatories to that document, have no allegiance to a single nation-state, wear civilian clothes, hide behind and slaughter women and children. Yet, the liberals, demokkkRATs and defeatists, along with other socialists, commies and fascists, have de facto taken the islamofascists' side in every legal matter. Not only are we fighting an overt War On islamofascism, we have the covert Enemy Within to defeat in order to preserve Freedom and Liberty.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
Marcus Tullius Cicero,
Speech in the Roman Senate - 42 BC
Q: You're not painting a very rosy picture, Mr John. It sounds like we're about to get our collective heads handed to us?
A: Hey, I'm not in charge of 'rosy pictures'; that's somebody elses area. If things don't soon change radically, we are. Have you seen the muslim head-cutting videos? Or the muslim impaling video? Or the latest American to be murdered by muslims? And how about all these beheadings and murders by muslims? Go ahead and have a look; I'll wait.
Q: Oh, my God!
A: Well put. The terrorist-supporting media have taken the muslim-islamist-arab subhuman, who shot 6 women, killing 1, at the Jewish community center in Seattle, off the news cycle, and supplanted it with a meaningless, Mel Gibson hates Jews, 24x7. So Mel's a drunken bigot? So freaking what? That's his problem, not a national concern. But the murderous muslim filth gets a pass from the liberal, terrorist-supporting media? What's wrong with that picture?
Q: Why are you so negative?
A: I'm not negative; I'm realistic about what's happening and what's coming, even if 85% of America has no freaking clue and the government is covering for the murderous, subhuman islamofascist filth. Can you say WWIII? America's worldwide enemies are surrounding us, The Enemy Within is attacking us on every societal, religious and moral front, and our elected leaders are cowardly, weak, lying, afraid-to-do-the-right-thing, empty suits and hollow skirts. What's to be optimistic about?
Q: Let's change the topic, Mr John. How's your business doing, after 16 years? Your reputation for high-end work, honesty, reliability, forthrightness, bluntness, hard work, high-end quality, sales of the rare, unusual and hard-to-find plant material, is legion. Is it well-deserved, and why is that?
A: You pretty much said it all; thanks for stealing my thunder, chump. You looking for a corporate PR job or something? Keep looking; don't give-up your day job. Please write when you get work. BTW, this is a business year *unlike any other*, and I'll detail it in a later interview. Okay with you?
Q: Fair enough. Your arsenal of weapons is frightening, Mr John. Why do you need so many exotic, powerful, diverse and awesome firearms, with so much combined firepower? Are you expecting trouble that we don't know about?
A: On July 14th, 1974, I was robbed and shot, coming out of a famous prime rib house, in West Palm Beach, FL, had an out-of-body experience, and still carry the .32cal bullet near my spine. I refuse to be a victim, ever again. I have a Concealed Carry Permit, here in Pennsylvania (CCW), and daily carry my favorite Kimber "Eclipse Target II" 1911 .45cal ACP.
Q: Seems I touched a nerve here, eh?
A: Disarmed, deballed nations like 90% of Europe, all of Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand etc, are ripe for the plucking by the murderous cult, called islam. Haven't you arrived at that cogent conclusion, with all the available evidence, out there? What parallel universe are you living in, these days, Self? There; I've said it. You're my alter-ego, who just doesn't want to believe what's happening and coming, irrespective of reality.
Q: Aren't you afraid of being such an all-too powerful InterNet Entity, with an unfettered weekly voice and large following, such as the wildly-popular and widely-read, John's Journal?
A: Oh, please; you're way too optimistic in your appraisal of me and my Journal. Thankfully for The Enemies Of America, I'm only one man at super-fast computers, with no/zero/zip/nada/zilch followers and absolutely no influence over anyone or anything. These are merely my opinions and thoughts; nothing more. Got that, Self?<
Q: Aren't you advocating the murder and killing of innocents, every week in your Journal?
A: No, not at all; only those who deserve it. I don't advocate or recommend the harming or killing of any "innocent, moderate muslims"; but then, I've never met any such people. Every one I've encountered, wanted to kill me and mine, and take over America. All muslims hate us Infidels (you and me) and truly wish us (you and me) dead. Remember: islamics want to kill us (you and me); muslims merely wish us (you and me) dead. I do heartily-advocate and recommend the outright targeting and killing of all muslim-islamic-arab terrorists, and their supporters, everywhere and anywhere you find them. Find the terrorists, of all stripes, and KILL THEM! The Truth is not bigotry, and muslim-islamist-arabs have a real hard time with the Truth. I do recommend the prompt killing of all murderers, rapists, child molesters, child rapists, child murderers etc, every week. Society's innocents especially children and the elderly must be protected from subhuman, murderous filth.
Q: Please stop; you're scaring some of your readers, Mr John.
A: Awwwwwww, *scaring* them? When the 7th century subhuman pigshit-drinking muslim-islamist-arabs, who are already here, decide to actively overthrow America and Western Civilization, what will America do? Load-up their pants in fear? Fight back and re-take America from the throat-cutting, subhuman muslim-islamist-arab garbage? Perhaps. I'm locked and loaded, and very well-stocked on ammo. I know what I'm going to have to do, when TSHTF.
Q: Okay, back on topic. How's your *personal life* doing these days, Mr John? You married and divorced within a 3 year period, back in 1993-96, didn't you? Yet, your multi-million dollar business continued to flourish and expand, didn't it? Most businesses 'go south' during the owner's time of personal trials, tribulations and depressions. How do you explain that?
A: Yes, I did. And it did. That 3yr marriage-divorce period is merely unpleasant, ancient history, and not worth shining a light upon it. Next question?
Q: Where do you see your highly-successful, horticultural business going, in the next 5-10 years? Or are you contemplating taking one of the several lucrative buy-out offers you've received, over the past 18 months? Based upon what I know about you, you aren't about to readily-cede your active, controlling lifestyle for simple 'retirement'.
A: I so enjoy and love this business and industry, that I can't imagine doing anything else. What would I do? Go back to Madison Ave in NYC, where I had fun for 17 years? Besides, I'm not in the mood to start a new business I'm 56 years old now and won't ever again work for someone else, most of whom don't know what they're doing. No, retirement isn't for me, Self. But maybe YOU are better-suited to personal retirement and social obscurity?
Q: You've been smoking filtered Marlboroฎ cigarettes since 1960 at 12 years old fully 46+ years from your early days at Boy Scout Summer Camp. Have you given any thought to quitting and rescuing your health, even though you aren't married with children and grandchildren?
A: No, I haven't. Over the years, I've 'quit' several times colds, flu, tonsillectomy, strep throat etc but have re-started afterward. I actually enjoy smoking, and the so-called second-hand smoke peril, is simply a steaming load of BS. Heck, what else do you do after vigorous, hot and steamy sex? Sex, huh? What's that all about? LOL.
Q: I guess you heard about the 'incident' in Prudhoe Bay (AL), didn't you, causing gas prices to rise this week? 8% of America's daily oil production: interrupted for the foreseeable future.
A: Sure did. Gas prices are stable at the pump; this week it's still at $2.99/gal, for Unleaded Regular. Unleaded Plus is still at $3.19/gal and Unleaded Premium is at $3.39/gal. Both diesel and kerosene are hovering around $3.09/gal. Look for $3.50+/gal (Unleaded Regular) by early September, as "The Summer Driving Season" peaks. BP LLC is a profits-driven company. The pipeline physical infrastructure is maxed-out at just before 25 years, and BP's been running it for 29 years, without any major physical pipeline expenditure/replacements to teh infrastructure. Any wonder it crapped-out? Metal corrodes and fatigues. Fact. Reports of sabotage are greatly exaggerated.
Q: You didn't answer my earlier question, so, shall I repeat it, Mr John?
A: No need to, Self. As the years (16 so far) go by, I'm more and more amazed at the caliber of people I meet on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, who gravitate to me and my company for high quality work we consistently do. I am very humbled and flattered that that many people think in such terms. But that is *exactly* what I set out, in 1989, to create, in a horticulture-oriented company. Thanks, all.
Q: Well, we made it through the worst weather, so far, didn't we?
A: I think the past two weeks of crappy, hot, humid, hazy weather, was just "Summer", and had zero to to with the fake, phony 'Global Warming'. Don't you, based upon the available, credible evidence? And not that BS that AlGoreBore spouts. Bullshit; total f*cking BS!
Q: Settle down, Mr John. The thinking people know that so-called 'global warming' isn't a valid theory, even, and that the world has moved trough warming and cooling cycles, over the past hundreds of thousanmds of years. Mr Gore is indeed mentally-ill, as you have characterized him, over the past 6 years. Let's move on to the next topic. Shall we?
A: Okay. Your call; go for it.
Q: You know I will. How much longer can you do what you do, so well? It's been 16 years and your business and horticultural offerings are getting better and better, with each succeeding year.
A: If you mean that I should be 'in decline' right now, after so many years of growing my business, then you'd be very, very wrong, Self. Above all others, me excepted, you'd know that the Pioneer Spirit, the Yankee Resolve, the American Chutzpah is alive, and most well, here.
Q: Sooooooooooo, you took yesterday, Thursday, off? Shame on you! For what valid reason? You're supposed to be working, not emjoying yourself.
A: Just some simple time-off, after working 7 days a week, for 15½ years. Into my 16th year, I finally realized that I just can't mentally and physically do it anymore. I'm feeling burnt out. Our once-a-year, 25% Off Sale begins September 1st, and I'll be back to 7 days a week, all too soon enough. Truth be told, I slept-in until 1:30pm, went food shopping, roasted Butternut Squash and made several 10lb tubs of my oh-so-good, ready-to-consume, Bisque. A nice, relaxing day, all in all.
Q: Has Armageddon begun?
A: It began over 1,400 years ago, and Thursday's 'liquid bomb' plane plot was just another foiled step in islam's plan to murder all Infidels, and destroy the world. Are you ready for August 22nd? Better get ready, as it's coming and there's nothing we can do about it, other than be prepared and ready to react. At least President Bush is now using the phrase, "islamic fascists", but he still can't seem to use the word, "islam", to describe the sworn enemy of Mankind. And the terrorist-supporting scum from CAiR, are upset. Awwwwwwwwww, gee whiz, muslim-islamist-arab filth.
Q: A pretty chilling scenario, isn't it?
A: This has been coming for many years, and I've been warning you and many thousands of others, since 9-11-01. I'm ready; are you?
