the winter of my discontent
friday, january 1st, 2010
ihad an amazing dream the other night. That all the financial damage done by Carter&Co in the 80s, Dodd-Frank&Co in the 90s, and Obama&Co in 2008-09 hadn't happened, and that the US Economy wasn't so badly-damaged and headed toward communism/socialism/Marxism/redistribution of wealth. That the backbone of America's industry — Small Businesses — hadn't been so massively-damaged and could still provide jobs to the 16 million+ unemployed. That unions — who've destroyed the manufacturing fabric of America since the 60s — had been disbanded, declared illegal and their leadership imprisoned for life. That America wasn't shedding between 300,000-550,000 jobs per month. That the DJIA hadn't risen 6,000pts for absolutely no reason, only ready to massively-crash, once again. (The S&P Index is the true indicator of America's economy and GDP). That so many idiots hadn't invested in ephemeral gold & silver. That hyperinflation wasn't just around the corner.
I awoke in a sweat around 2:15am, swung my legs over the side of the queen-sized bed, lit a Marlboro, and assured my two condo cats that we had 6-8mos of food, and plenty of cash, guns and ammo to survive what was ever coming. I went back to sleep at 2:30am, and "the dream" continued.
That Sambo Hussein Obama Soetero was found to be a *fraud*; born in Kenya, true documents and records impounded/hidden and rendered him ineligible to be US President, under the US Constitution. That shit-for-brains Joey "The Plagiarist Plug-Head" Biden, was declared mentally-incompetent to ascend to office; that Nancy "Botox" Pelosi was declared a *drug addict* and disqualified from any further office, and that Harry Reid was declared an *inveterate liar*, and also banned from office. That left some Conservative & RINOs next in ascension.
I petitioned and demanded that all the known RINOs be stood against a thick, stone wall, and shot, with all of the liberal-progressive demokkkRAT traitors. The gunfire lasted for months. The Conservatives were worth interviewing. We needed to bring America back to a *Representative Republic* from a chaotic *Democracy*. Democracy is one of the worst of all evils, right up there with Marxism, Stalinism, Socialism, Maoism, Nazism etc. Democracy is total anarchy. Inflation is coming, baby.
Yemen is al Queerda's new base; not Afghanistan. Nuke it, dammit. I pushed the button and 2 ICBM's took care of it. Afghanistan became a cinder and glass parking lot. I sent 2 ICBMs into Iran and obliterated their nuclear program. End of immediate problems. Obama's a worthless piece-of-muslim-pigshit!
"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction," said Obama. UPDATED AND CORRECTED. Huh, Obama, you filthy mutherfucking half-breed muslim-piece-of-pigshit! You need ASAP imprisonment, sambo IMO!
The alarm went-off at 8am, and my "dream" was concluded. Back to reality, such as it is.
Around The Garden Center™.
I went over to Mom & Dad's around 1pm, for Christmas Dinner: Kuntzler boneless ham, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, cornbread and rum-raisin ice cream with homemade oatmeal raisin cookies. Wowzer, was I full and ready to go home and take a nap by the fireplace, with my cats!
My "Christmas Jars" are working, both at the Salvation Army Stores and on random peoples' porches. I handed-out >37 Jars this year, all over York, Lancaster, Harford and Baltimore Counties. It was a lot of driving, but I did it during my daily travels, so I wouldn't have to go back at night, and perhaps be shot as a burglar. Heck, if I knew what caliber of weapon(s) the homeowner had, I'd drop-in a few rounds of ammo, too, just for "good measure". Heh. Next year, I hope to be able to do 50 "Christmas Jars"; I'm starting to save the coins right now in "bottle banks". And I'll cash-in some greenbacks to make-up the difference, if I need to.
I slept-in until 11:30 on Saturday, deciding to call it a "holiday weekend" and remain closed. It rained on-and-off, most of the day, washing away the bulk of the "Blizzard of 2009", of which we'll have several more before Spring finally arrives. Meanwhile, the Midwest was still getting hammered by blizzards, which messed-up a lot of peoples' Christmas plans.
When I had my eye exam several weeks ago, resulting in a new tri-focal Rx, frames and lenses ($530), and I told the Ophthalmologist about my watery right eye. She said both tear ducts were "blocked", but not inflamed, and now the right duct is running like a river. I sit with a box of Kleenex and wipe, wipe, wipe, constantly. The alternative is surgery. Sometimes, I can't even drive, as my eyes are too watery. Damn. I don't do surgery. This just started a few years ago. Okay, here's what I'm doing to manually unclog a tear duct, sans surgery. As I said, I don't do surgery.
The ***High Wind Warnings*** were posted at 4am on Tuesday, with gusts between 40-65mph, and I saw all kinds of branches down and trees uprooted in the soggy ground, on the way into work. With temps at 24°F, the wind chill was a -19°F. Brutal! Yes, I'm feeding the birds 20-30lbs of seed per week, but any water I put out for them freezes instantly. I can't imagine wild animals surviving in this weather, when they have to forage for food everyday, though I do what I can for them. The mortality rate must be high.
22°F and my indoor water garden is frozen-over, in the unheated Main GH. The auto-refill pipe is cracked, the garden hose is frozen solid, and I had to pull the plugs to both water pumps. I have the garden hose thawing inside the Main Building, so I can get water flowing into the pond again. I brought 2 portable heaters from the Landscape Foreman's Office inside to keep holes open in the ice, so the Koi don't suffocate. Until this brutal cold abates, I'll have to manually fill the inside water garden, when the level drops.
***WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY*** in effect for Thursday morning, with 3-4" of global warming expected! Shit; didn't need that crap. I had to go into work, since the Suburban Propane delivery truck was scheduled to fill my 3 x 1,000gal tanks. We're getting low on LPG; gauge reads only 20%.
No, I won't be going anywhere for New Year parties or celebrations; too many drunks on the road and too much carnage and death. I don't want to be a part of any of that. I received a dozen invitations from friends and relations, but politely turned them down, after explaining my reasons.
A Happy, Healthy & Prosperous 2010, to you and yours!

I need some duct tape! DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up the Amsterdam-Detroit flight this week demonstrated that "the system worked". Huh? Fire the fat-assed dyke bitch!
The 10 Most Corrupt Pols in DC? Here's the list of the scumbags. I agree; line them up and execute them, IMO.
2010? The artificial "housing bubble" will explode, TARP is an unfunded slush-fund, and GE's Jeffrey Imelt will benefit from nuclear power, which the hard-core Left-Dirtbags have denigrated for the past 25 years.
Fonts For You™.
Many Journal entries are best viewed in the Charrington Roughened and the Orlando typefaces. You may already have Century Gothic on your Windows-XP machine, and that's almost always used for the body copy or subheads, so grab it, if you don't already have it; you're reading it now. They're free from my website. Grab 'em! Save them to your HD, and install to C:/Windows/Fonts (folder), thru your WIN XP Control Panel > Fonts > File > Install New Font. Simple stuff; just takes a few minutes.
Here are a few others, which have been used in my Journal: Papyrus and Acoustic Bass, and Caesar Regular and Carleton and Charrington Strewn and Catherine. If you get and install them, you'll see how much nicer these pages are to view and read. Plus, they add to your repertoire of available fonts in MS-Word, as WIN-XP System Fonts, so you can use them for your daily documents.
Here's a new one, for your Windows/Fonts folder: Sketchy.
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!
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.
Esquire Drinks Database.
Rule #36 of the Esquire Drinks Database: "Never utter the words I and love and you if you've had more than three drinks." Rule #39: "Don't call the bartender Barkeep, Chief, Buddy, or Ace unless his actual name, in fact, is Barkeep, Chief, Buddy, or Ace." Belly up to this well-stocked catalog for a long sip of such drinking lore, select cocktail mixes, and a whopping 71 rules "a man should know about drinking." (Rule #72: Women know a thing or two about drinking, too.) Each entry—part recipe, part behind-the-bar secrets, and part cultural history—is deliciously fun and snarky, even if you don't plan on indulging in the real stuff. We love the associations Campari conjures up in the Negroni entry and the lineage of the "savage" Bloody Mary. From Absinthe Frappés to The Zombie ("the mother of all freak drinks"), the Drinks Database goes down smooth.
