nation in distress
friday, august 14th, 2009
there are more times that I like to count, recently, when I feel like flying my businesses' flags — Old Glory and Gadsden — upside-down, in a display of distress. Most people wouldn't understand my display; they'd simply comment that I was drunk when I hoisted the flags. Go figure.
The corrupt, criminal, mentally-ill, liberal filth, shit and garbage are proliferating at a faster rate than Conservative American Citizens, who are the backbone and bedrock of this Republic. It will take a Civil War III to rid this Country of such lowlife, subhuman filth, on a scale that vets Patriots and destroys the fascist/commie/invaders, once and for all, IMO.
9.4% unemployment? Bullshit: it's more like 16.3%, and rapidly heading to 20%! Obama & Co lies!
What's far, far, far more insidious, Nazi-like and much worse, is the "end of life" and "euthanasia" program that so-called Death Care/Obama Care will foist upon all Americans. Murderous filth and garbage like convicted felon and lowlife, Van Jones, eugenicists Peter Singer, Ezekiel Emmanuel, Cass Sunstein, Wachter, John Holdren, and the mentally-ill Green "Communist" Movement, coupled with crippling nation debt, leads to ***healthcare allocation***, advising Obama in times of crisis, behind closed doors, out of public ear-reach and legal remedies. IMO, all of those lib-dem SOB's need summary trial and execution.
Freedom-loving and liberty-loving people don't need leaders; communists, fascists and socialists need "leaders" and "dictators". The Nation is compromised by the serial-lying Obama and his un-elected "Czars". It's long-past-time to "throw the bums out" — lib-dem trash and worthless pubbies alike — and return to our Constitutional Republic, instead of this dictatorship 62 million idiots, morons and scumbags, voted into office.
Around The Garden Center™.
My day-to-day-life is GroundHog Day x 100, right now, with few variations. I need some variation in my day-to-day activities, to afford me an altered routine, in order to survive and prosper. Minor alterations to the routine, would be most welcome.
I had my 'one variation' with the "Interview of The 40th Anniversary of Woodstock 1969", on Wednesday. Okay, let's see where it goes on the 14th or the 15th, in the "YDR". Meanwhile, I continue to plug along at LSCP Estimates and HICPA Contracts, just to get work to my HDSCP & LSCP people. I brought year-to-date sales numbers home with me on Friday, along with the MS-Excel Workbook with the monthly charts and graphs, and individual job profitability sheets, and it isn't looking good for us to make our "break-even point" for 2009, so far. I re-ran the numbers a different way, and came-up with the same results. Everyone's working their butts off to make the weekly and monthly numbers, but it just isn't happening. If we don't have a spectacular "September & October 25%+ Off Sale", we're finished. Everything's riding on those 8 weeks.
I went through the past 15-18 jobs using the individual "Job Profitability Sheets" and we're making money, but not at levels of 2005-2006; 2007 and 2008 showed a marked decline in volume, attributable to a maturing housing market, already declining economic depression and a looming depression.
Summer was beginning its return engagement on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with temps climbing from the low-80s up into the mid-90s, and the attendant, oppressive humidity returning, as well. We had a "safety electrical shutdown" of the main well on Thursday evening, but two of the eight back-up wells finished the watering of the nursery stock, I called-in R.E. Sanders Co, on a Friday morning emergency basis, and they checked the electrics, showed me the emergency reset switches, and checked Saturday after as we closed at 4pm, that all systems were operational. I also came down Sunday morning to make sure everything had been watered, as needed. 1-2 days of 95°F heat, without water for the plants, would mean absolute disaster for my business.
See, I have "no real life" anymore outside of my business; not since I got divorced back in 1996. Twelve frigging years and I can't find a woman in York County 'worth a shit', IMO. Phonies, 'gold-diggers', self-absorbed types, elitists, arrogants, posturers, losers et al. I see the same thing in several of my male friends' wives, too; they've "settled for whom/what they could get", instead of choosing the best partner for themselves and a family. I refuse to do that. But, I digress.
I slept-in until 10:45am Sunday, watered and fed the two condo cats at 5am, went back to sleep for a few hours (with bad dreams, so I cut-short my REM sleep) and went out food shopping around 12noon. Then I went down to the Complex around 1:30pm, to check the wells and water irrigating system. It hadn't worked, so I hit the *emergency restart buttons*, and the main well, back-fed by with others, kicked-in and ran the full 12-zone cycle. At 91°F, the plants were wilted and suffering, but the cool well water quickly revived them. I checked the 5 GHs, and they were okay. By then, I was drenched with sweat, and opted to come home, shave and shower and get into some dry clothes. I'll deal with it on Monday morning.
Holy shit! I inadvertently watch a hi-tech, Brit-produced werewolf-vampire movie on FX Networks, on Sunday evening, called "Underworld Evolution", by pure accident, and enjoyed the living/dead hell out of it! Then, the phony-baloney global warning crap move, "Day After Tomorrow" came on, and I turned it off. I retired around 11pm. I had some very *weird* dreams from that other movie, and was up 3x during the night for a glass of water and a smoke. Been a very long time since I'd seen anything as bizarre and graphic as that one! Brrrrr.
August may be midway over, but The Dog Days of Summer are just beginning. Tuesday wasn't as bad as Monday's oppressive heat, but with 88°F and 85% humidity, it was still unpleasant. My LSCP Crew left as soon as they'd finished their assigned job; around 2pm. Jennifer and Matt left at 3:30. Dad and I closed-up at 4pm. *Severe Storm Warnings* went up at 4:20 on the radio, and continued through 6:30. Most of the storms passed southwest of York, and I had only a few minutes of "lights out". About an hour later, more storms hit and we lost power for 20-30mins; I fired-up the candles and waited it out. *Flood Warnings* went-up for West York, and they weren't kidding.
Yes, all my Employees and I are working for the same pay, this season, and it looks like we'll do the same in 2010. No choice. Those who can't handle it, will be leaving; so be it. Good luck in finding a better job than you have here. Seriously.
I knocked-off 3 large LSCP Estimates on Wednesday, and have a small pile sitting on my desk to do over the next 2-3 days. I also made some job site visits, met some new customers and forwarded their data to James. Seth's hand-cut & stacked-stone wall, on the Manifold LSCP Job, was a "work of art", as usual. Dad and I closed down around 4:45pm, and I headed home to work with Windows 7 O/S RC, Build 7100.
I was supposed to take Thursday off, but found myuself with an 11am doctor's appointment and a walk-in lab work order at Apple Hill Medical Center. Not having anything to do around the condo, since I'd gotten all my chores done on Sunday, I went back into work around 1pm, and worked on some LSCP Estimates, loaded some mulch and did paperwork. (((sigh))) So much for my day off.
Obama's History of Radicalism.
Many tuned into the Hannity Show this past Sunday on the promise of an explosive expose' on Obama's past. We saw that the show was just another average Hannity Show.
It is now being alleged that the show was pulled hours before airing, and we can all guess why that would be, if it is true.
But here are six YouTube links alleged to be the six segments Hannity intended to show last Sunday, and some are circulating another email telling folks to tune in again this coming Sunday.
Here are the links. Take a look before they are removed from YouTube.
I do not have any direct information on this special, whether or not it was ever real, whether or not is was pulled hours before airing, or even whether or not these six segments are from that special.
But, there is a lot of important information in these six links. So, take a look and decide for yourself.
Things Which Make Your Head Explode™.
Unions are stinking, filthy criminal garbage, serve no useful purpose except to further corrupt politics, and should be declared criminal organizations, prosecuted under RICO.
Put the bitch in prison! Oooops, read about "her special legal deal". Do you think you or I would get that deal? Doubt it.
Things Which Make Your Eyes Squirt Blood™.
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 head shoot these murderous, lowlife dirtbags — their skin-color doesn't matter to me, at all — and rid American Society's innocents (especially our precious children and the 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"!
Avion Lawson, 16, the youngest of four teens charged in the 2007 gang rape of a South Florida woman and her 12-year-old son, needs killing, as do the other three lowlife subhuman filth. $100 says the woman and her son were White. No mention of a "hate crime", is there?
Whomever wantonly slaughtered these horses, deserves to die.
We've all been there. The co-worker who keeps swiping the Hot Pockets. The neighbors who get free-form with their garbage. The roommate that never does the dishes. So what do we do? We leave a note, of course! Sometimes, a simple Post-it does the trick, other times it's good to get a little more descriptive. Just one thing: Make darn sure it's polite-but-oh-so-scornful so you get the chance to see it posted on this site's Pick. Not every missive has to threaten physical violence. Maybe sometimes you can call on the WWJD brigade. And of course, everyone loves a cautionary warning with a sense of humor behind it, whether it be inventive or merely, uh, subtle? So if your grammar stinks or your mother tongue is German, no matter! Be respectful and leave a response. Just try not to go overboard, m'kay? Thanks!!!!!!
