our precious Constitutional Republic is nearly gone. In 1878, Benjamin Franklin said to an unknown woman who asked him, "Sir, what have you given us?" He replied, "We've given you a Constitution Republic, Madam, if you can keep it."
We've failed seriously and miserably, over the several centuries of our young existence to "keep it". It's morphed into a so-called "Democracy" — essentially "mob rule" — and the quickest road to socialism and then on to communism, which is where we are today.
Bent and twisted into something almost unrecognizeable today, our once-vaunted and admired Constitutional Republic is now well on its way to an exiled existence we don't recognize: income redistribution, higher and higher taxes, crooked politicians now everywhere,"cap & tax" bullshit, outrageous welfare checks for even those who can find jobs and work to earn their way, like the rest of us do.
Around The Garden Center
I arrived at work Monday morning by 9:45am, and already snow squalls were moving through the area, leaving a light dusting of flurries on the ground. It was 22°F with a Wind Chill of 17°F, and bitter cold. It took the Main Retail Building 15-20min to warm-up, even with all three Modine heaters running. Alan had already been in to pick-up the generator to "blow-out" a long-time customer's extensive underground Drip Irrigation lines, as he and Arthur had to do the Garden Center's vast array of underground lines and pipes, last week. Two other customers made final payments on their landscape jobs — the first time in 20 years I've ever offered that "service" — and it has helped many new and old customers spread payments out, though it hasn't done much for our "cash flow", it does bring-in the jobs when I offer them that "option".
After introducing Gabrielle to both Mom & Dad, I took her home to Adam's Junction, to review the many pages we'd hand-written, a few nights before, to write her own list of "questions & doubts" about our marriage, so we could discuss them, rationally. I had doctors' appointments coming-up, plus bills to pay, and plenty of paperwork to do. I wanted to give her time to air any her "problems".
Arthur did innumberable small projects, while Alan was down in Freeland, MD, doing the Drip Irrigation Line blow-out. I paid bills and did paperwork, and we closed around 1:45pm. Kim will be in Wednesday to check the GHs for dry plants and do some watering, if needed. The Winter Months are quite an "adjustment", as compared to Spring-Summer-Fall's routine and hectic pace, but we all get used to it. She and I are working on a long Perennnial List for one of our major suppliers, so we can have the 4 Retails GHs looking really good for the Sat, April 30th Open House. It's important to get the list in to them by March 1st, so that if they're sold out on certain items, we can go elsewhere to fill the order. Comsequently, we're juggling 2-3 lists, now, and plan to re-stock the GHs with lots of color and selections.
The next 10-15 days and nights are filled with temps in the low-20s and snow flurries & showers, as squalls move-in the The Great Lakes and Canada, with the greatest concentrations of 8-15" in Northwestern PA. We'll get-off "easy" down in the Central-Southeaster part of the state, as compared to up there around the Lakes. But the bitter cold won't spare us, as the snow will. I've taken lots of precautions again frozen and bursting pipes in the Pump House, with baseboard heaters, heat lamps, and running water in the Office bathroom.
All I could think about all week was Gabrielle, in between two doctor's appointments, and her "doubts" and "second thoughts" about us being together in York. I'd have to deal with all that when I got up to The Cabin on Friday afternoon. I called her to ask how she was doing, and got her voicemail, which I'd set-up for her last week. I didn't want to call Bev & Tony's, as they had enough problems of their own, with what had happened last week to their store. This was between Gabrielle and me.
Tuesday was a slow, boring day, with an 11:30am doctor's appointment, made even slower by a backlog of patients in his office, when I arrived at 11:20am, as he was running an hour behind, due to one of the other docs being called into surgery that morning, at The York Hospital. Dad had taken the day off, and I had shut-down the Center, so when I was finished, I left his office straight for home. 30°F/ Wind Chill 14°F and snow squalls moved through the area, dumping ¼" here and there, making it look almost like Winter in the southern end of York (PA) County. After my cleaning lady and her husband left, I laid down on the LR couch for a short nap, which lasted until 4pm; didn't miss The Glenn Beck Program. My CHCA "handyman", Dennis, was returning my call about doing some inside sheetrock repairs to the condo walls. I'd meet him around 2-3pm on Wednesday to get an estimate and just give him the go-ahead to getting them filled, sanded and re-painted, to make the condo "whole" again.
Wednesday was a little better. Dad was back in, and we had two princinpals from PNC Bank, York (PA) coming by at 11:00am to switch from Fulton-Drover's Bank, after 11 years, to their fledgling institution, due to so many "hidden charges ($400-$500/ month) on our checking and saving accounts with Fulton, plus a much lower rate on CC processing, that it sold itself to us. Personally, I liked Drover's Bank, when it was small, years ago, but after being swallowed-up by giant Fulton Corp, it became less and less personal. We signed the paperwork, and they took care of the rest, moving the accounts, issuing new color-coded checks for vendors, payroll etc. Lots of othere "benies", too: free checking, no transfer costs on existing CCs and more. Dad's been reserarching this move for months, and we decided to make the "move" over the Winter, when it would be less hectic. Sue Kemp & Mike Sharp are our new "go-to-team" now, in York, and are available at a moment's notice. They're "hungry for our business", as we put $1mm+ through the bank each season in deposits. I'm excited to be doing business with a new bank who'll give us a better deal and save us money along the way. I closed down at 1:15pm and went home, as my back was aching and needed some rest and a cold-pak on the couch.
In the past two weeks, gas prices have skyrocketed another 20¢ at the pumps. Unleaded Regular (87oct) is now at $3.05, Unleaded Premium (89oct) is now at $3.15/gal, and Unleaded Super Premium (92oct) is at $3.35/gal, with Diesel also rising way up to $3.59/gal. Is there $4.00/ gal to come for Premium, soon?
I called Gabrielle on Thursday, which I took-off work, since there was "nothing to do". Instead of her voicemail, I got her, and we had a 45min conversation about her "doubts" and "second thoughts". It was mostly about Bev & Tony, and how they'd do without her daily help at The Store and at their home, but also how she'd be accepted by my Family & Friends in York (PA). We'd get into it more on Friday, when I arrived at The Cabin, and picked her up, to spend the weekemd with me and hash-out all these "problems and doubts" of hers.
The Global Warming Money Pit
Have you seen this video: "BBC: The Great Global Warming Swindle"? It was outright-banned from leftist, hate-filled, dirtbag, lowlife scumbags, Google.com's and YouTube.com's websites, by the mentally-ill, left-wing, global warming idiot wackos, but I've preserved it, for posterity, aka you, me and *ours*. Watch, be informed and download it for others to see. It's on my corporate server, and will stay there, BTW.
Here's what the Global Warming Scam is all about. Sweet, huh? They're so transparent, aren't they?
Here's everything you need to know about the Global Warming Fraud, and why it's a good thing. It's a l-o-n-g article, so get a sandwich, iced tea and settle-in, for a very informative read. I'm right there with you, BTW.
The "Greenhouse Effect" is a natural and valuable phenomenon, without which, the planet would be uninhabitable. Global Warming, at least in recent times, is real. CO2 is not a significant greenhouse gas; 95% of the contribution is due to Water Vapor. Man's contribution to Greenhouse Gasses is relatively insignificant. We didn't cause the recent Global Warming and we cannot stop it. Solar Activity appears to be the principal driver for Climate Change. CO2 is a useful trace gas in the atmosphere, and the planet would actually benefit by having more, not less of it, because it is not a driver for Global Warming and would enrich our vegetation, yielding better crops to feed the expanding population. CO2 is not causing global warming, in fact, CO2 is lagging temperature change in all reliable datasets. The cart is not pulling the donkey. Wake-up, folks.
Here's a listing of The Best Global Warming Videos on the Internet.
Hey, fat, shit-for-brains, bloated, liar, huckster, fraud, criminal, charlatan, scumbag, loser, disgraced ex-VP AlGoreBore (LIAR-TN), is back using $300 million of OPM (Other Peoples' Money) to promote his Global Warming Bullshit, after the worst Winter in over 100 years. Welcome back, fatso huckster asswipe, AlGoreBore!
Roger Revelle of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Harvard University and University of California San Diego, spits on the lying scumbag, AlGoreBore. My, my, oh my. (((snicker))) No, there's no consensus on Glo-bullshit Warming, other than it's a LIE! Just ask Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT, Richard S. Lindzen; he's eminently-qualified to call AlGoreBoreAsshole, a LIAR! As I am.
There's another "ice age" coming, not the AlGoreBoreLiar 'Glo-bull warming' crap.
Larsen B Ice Shelf in Antarctica collapses in 2002 = Glo-bullshit Warming? Doubt it.
Read this Glo-bullshit Warming idiocy. Go ahead; I'll wait.
AlGoreBore's "hypocrisy"? See it right here!
You need to watch this 30 minute film; it's an eye-opener if you think that we're running out of crude oil, and that America has no reserves. We have more oil and natural gas in Alaska alone, than all the rest of the world's known reserves, COMBINED! Grab an adult beverage, and watch it.
Better get out your Winter coats, 'snuggies', wool socks and snow shovels, as it seems we've got an 80-year "Little Ice Age", on the way. Yawn; no biggie.
AlGoreBore's "Glo-bull Warming Bullshit" has spawned so-called 'cottage industries' around the world, worth hundreds of millions and probably billions of dollars, for green corporation validation, carbon credits, foundation & university climate studies, grants and a host of other BS-related crap to his lies and garbage. Global warming competes with cancer and competes with AIDS for a finite amount of money. This year's natural resurgence will surely see the global warmists, led by celebrity warmist, Gore, compete viscously for those US Taxpayers' hard-earned dollars. And I'm betting that the really important disease, cancer, loses to Glo-bullshit Warming and AIDS. Dammit.
F*ck all the "Glo-bullshit Warming Alarmists"! I say, FUCK-THEM-UP, and cleanse the planet, if they try to physically-intimidate and hurt anyone! I will; count on it! "Get in my face", assholes, and that'll be your last day on this Earth! If there are any "dissenting scientists" out there, who need protection, just get in-touch with me, and I'll guard you & yours. You can count upon that, folks!
Have you taken "The Global Warming Test"? If you have a sentient, functioning brain, and a simple knowledge of "the facts", you'll easily get a 10-of-10, as I did. Go ahead, and give it a try!
Read this article and pick-out "The WWF's Big Lie". If you chose this paragraph — "Summer sea ice is now forecasted to completely disappear in the summer months sometime between 2013 and 2040 — something which hasn't happened for over a million years." — you'd be right. There isn't, and never has been and ice on the earth dated at a million years old, and who the hell was around back then to begin recording it? The lying sacks-of-shit at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are typical lowlife, left-wing wacko scumbags, in-bed with the "Glo-Bull Warming" Crap, of asshole AlGoreBore and his phony, money-making scam. The oldest, and not reliably-dated ice cores are >160,000 years, and those are shaky in fact, at best. So where did the lying WWF pull the million year crap from? Their asses, of course!
Shit-for-brains, mentally-ill, fat, bloated liar, AlGoreBore's (LOWLIFE-TN) "ally", in NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by AlGoreBore's chief scientific ally/"asshole/butt-buddy"— Dr James "Moron-Cretin-Asshole" Hansen (DIRTBAG-NASA) — and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that "last month was the hottest October on record". Total, factual bullshit and lies. This was startling. Across the world there were reports of unseasonal snow and plummeting temperatures last month, from the American Great Plains to China, and from the Alps to New Zealand. China's official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its "worst snowstorm ever". In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years. So what explained the anomaly? GISS's computerized temperature maps seemed to show readings across a large part of Russia had been up to 10 degrees higher than normal. But when expert readers of the two leading warming-skeptic blogs, "Watts Up With That and Climate Audit", began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running. Read this article, and find out why both lying, corrupt, criminal, subhuman idiots, GoreBore & Hansen, should be stood against a wall, and shot, IMO. In fact, the pathetically-socialist, left-wing UK, has just begun to awaken to what the "Climate Change Bill" will do to destroy their nation, or what's left of it. IMO, it's probably too late now to save the UK, but at least some of the more Conservative people over there, will at least get the chance to flee to America (or elsewhere), before we also "go down the proverbial dumper", as they've done. Heh.
On Friday, January 2nd, I ran a fully-attributed story in my weekly "Journal", which had links to other stories and facts, thoroughly-debunking AlGoreBore's trillion dollar scam and fraud, Global Warming". The Daily Telegraph UK's columnist, Christopher Booker, was the erudite author, and here is the link to that story. Nice job, Mr Booker!
Now, lowlife shit-for-brains dirtbag, Arkansas Gov Mike "DumbAss Turd-Boy" Beebe (ASSHOLE-AR), said that global warming is serious problem, not a "hoax," and requires more than a state response. "I think it's a threat, and I think global warming is occurring," Beebe-The-Shithead said in response to a caller to his statewide radio program who said he believed the climate change crisis was a "hoax." Idiot. Stupid idiot. Global warming is bullshit, you two-bit asshole! Crawl back inside of AlGoreBore's rectum, dumbfuck!
And global cooling goes merrily along, without any help from us mere humans, as it has for millions and millions of years.
Another "lie/error" in the favor of Glo-BULL Warming's false bullshit and lies? Got duct tape?
Here's the truth: Lord Monckton of Brenchley's Science & Public Policy Institute.
The commie/fascist/socialist liberal-demokkkRAT filth in the US Congress, have refused to allow Lord Monckton to testify the truth, against con-man, liar, scumbag AlGoreBore's LIES! This is Commie Russia, NOT Free America!
We are in a mini-ice-age for the next 30 years; get used to it!
UN: Glaciers are melting in some part of the world, while increasing in other parts of the world. So frigging what, dumbass UN scumbag trash? It's been happening for millions of years, idiots!
Things Which Make Your Head Explode
Øbummer is so fricking stupid, that he doesn't even know our national motto. He thinks it's 'E Pluribus Unum' - "out of many, one". When in fact, it's "In God We Trust", in 1956. Dumb shithead Kenyan, Marxist sambo MF'er.
Singing Christmas Carols with you wife, after she bit off your tongue, as the police arrived? There's more to this story I don't want to know about.
99 weeks of unemloyment benefits is TOTAL F•CKING BULLSHIT! Get 1-2-3 jobs if you need to make ends meet, people!
I can see how extending the Bush Tax Cuts will help create more jobs, but how does extending unemployment benefits create any jobs? Total bullshit, once again!
Both the House and Senate passed the (Bad) DREAM ACT, allowing anywhere from 300,000 to 40,000,000 illageals become American Citizens, Immediately. That eaise unemployments rates, taxes, welfare and a host of other medical costs for every American Citizen. Nice job, "lamd-duck"" assholes! It has to be repealed, dammit!
Some People Just Need Killing
This will do it!.
"Time" Magazine will name WikiLeaks founder and leaker of CIA & State Dept documents, traitor and subhuman filth, Julian Assange, "2010 Person Of The Year". Assange needs immediate killing, IMO! Where is the CIA on this one? I'd kill him if I could get "the shot".a
Racism-instigator-liar-murderer Fat Al Sharp-Scum is going after Rush Limbaugh with the FCC, for "racism"? I hardly think so, Fat Al, you asshole sambo! You and "your kind" need summary killing, for the good of America IMO!
