friday, january 11th, 2013
almost 11 years ago, I came home from work early, opened the front door, dropped my jacket and keys on the table, and heard some unusual "noise" in the bedroom.
Quietly, I drew my Kimber® 1911 "Eclipse Target™ II" .45cal ACP, chambered a round, clicked-off the safety, and lowered it by my side while carefully walking into the bedroom.
There was my wife of 9yrs and my best friend of 7yrs, "doing it, doggy-style" in our King-Sized bed. She turned around and gasped. He dismounted her and they both covered-up with the sheets, in shame and embarrassment.
"Get out, bitch; it's over. Just get out. NOW!" She grabbed her clothes and a few other things, and quickly left without a word. I yelled, "I'll throw all your stuff out on the road tonite, and you can pick-it-up tomorrow. But don't EVER come back here to my house."
I turned around to my now ex-best friend, and he looked at me with those big ol' sheep dog eyes, just begging me not to shoot him. I safetied my .45cal, and slid it back in the holster, secured it, picked-up the morning's newspaper and rolled it up.
I walked toward him and stopped 3ft away, and smacked him twice in the nose.
"Bad dog, bad dog!"
"Get out, scumbag!"
Never saw him again, either.
(I don't care who you are; that's funny! Adapted from a radio skit I heard a few months ago.)
A Day In The Life
I slept-in until 7:45 on Friday morning, got up to a bitter-cold 18°F, turned-up the heat, made Fresh-Squeezed OJ and coffee, and checked email, the news and weather sites. A 40°F "heat-wave" was on its way for the next several days. BFD. Where's the snow? With this "wet" cough I'd developed since last night, I skipped breakfast, got ready and left for Staples® to get a 10-pack of DVD-RWs and a few other things, and then went over to Dad's for a short visit. I didn't want him to get whatever this cough was, or might be. On the way home, I had a real hard time passing-up Chipolte® and Roburritos®, as I had a huge "mental craving" for Mexican food, and hadn't eaten since Thursday afternoon. I stopped at Boscov's at The Galleria Shopping Mall, to look at new LR couches, but so many people were coughing and sneezing, I decided to leave. I didn't see anything which interested me, anyway. I'll try the Bon-Ton store, maybe next week.
Somehow, I made it past the 2 Mexican food places, went home and made fresh Beef-Filled Ravioli in 4-Cheese Bertolli® Sauce w/ Sweet Peas, but just containerized it in the 'fridge, as I still wasn't hungry. Next, I got a large, 2 cooler-box delivery of Filet Mignons and Steakburgers from Allen Bros, stowed them in my garage's Frigidaire 14.8 cuft Chest Freezer, and put the Jeep away for the night. 28°F and a few flurries; another cold night ahead. I had a slight fever: 99.6°F with the cough. Having already gone thru a terrible 14-day bout with the early flu, back in November, and hoped this wasn't a reoccurrence, so I started a Bayer® 325mg Aspirin and water regimen again. The bronchitis cough is a "dry" cough, so I knew it wasn't that. I listened to the Mark Levin Show, until only 8pm or so, and closed down for the night. The "wet" cough and fever persisted.
Although I really wanted to just roll-over and go back to sleep on Saturday morning, I got-up at 6:30, made OJ and French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee (from whole, freshly-ground Dunkin' Donuts® beans) with my Chemex® Drip System, checked the news and weather sites for the day/week/month. The sun came-up at 7:10am. I still had the "wet" cough, but the fever had dropped back-to-normal. I decided to stay-in for the day, get some odd jobs around the Condo done, and called Dad around 10:30am. Better to stay away from other people for the next few days, until I'm sure this cough/fever isn't the flu redux. The slight fever came back in the early afternoon, so I skipped lunch, just having some Jell-O® and Ocean Spray® Diet Blueberry-Pomegranate Juice. While working, I listened to some selected Michael Berry Podcasts, and various Chris Plante Show Podcasts, which I'd missed over the past 2 holiday weeks. Although I'd prepared my usual Sunday morning food shopping trip list, I'd make the decision to go at 7am tomorrow, tomorrow, depending upon how I felt. By 8:30pm, the cough was getting worse, I'd had enough, took more aspirin and went to bed.
My Sunday morning alarm went-off at 5:45, I turned it off, and went back to sleep. The usual 7am food shopping trip would have to wait for later. I was up 3x during the night, with that "wet" cough, and was tired, so I decided to sleep-in today. 9:30am rolled-around, and I finally got-up. It'd snowed lightly overnight, and temps outside were down to 19°F. After turning-up the Condo furnace, grabbing my Turkish Bathrobe, I made coffee, OJ and 2 pieces of toast; I still wasn't very hungry. There was less "wet" in the cough, and it felt like my lungs were draining, so I could breathe better. (Sorry about all "wet cough" talk; I'll stop.) I drove to Dad's for a short visit and to drop-off some things for him, call Becky in SF, made my delayed food shopping trip to Weis Market, in East York, and came home around 12noon. My appetite was slowly returning and the Chicken Salad Sandwich on Croissant w/ Chips tasted good. After taking a 1-hr walk to get some fresh air into my lungs, and doing 1 of 3 loads of laundry, I listened to "Gun Talk" from 2-5pm and from 8-10pm. I shut-down at 10:15, for the night.
Monday's laundry day, so I slept-in until 7:30am, made coffee, OJ and Poached Eggs w/ Canadian Bacon, while scanning the news and weather sites. 22°F and cold. After changing bed linens, 3 loads of laundry, I started re-inventorying and re-organizing the ammo I have in the garage. I made a list of 3"x4" labels in MS-Word, by caliber, and by grain load. I'll be re-boxing a lot of it, re-labeling the boxes, and moving it all down to the basement's right-side, bottom shelves, where it's drier and dehumidified, with a Kenmore® 35-pt Dehumidifier. I wish I could move the entire gunsafe down there, too, but that's out of the question. Listening to WITF-FM Classical streaming from their site, I finally finished the re-inventory, around 1:30pm. Then, I had to enter the info into MS-Word, on to the label template I'd made for each caliber/grain load, and set-up the labels. I'll do the movement downstairs over the next few days, rebox and labels each, after moving all items from the bottom shelves. At 6pm, the Mark Levin Show came on, and I listened while working on the "ammo project", until 9pm. Tomorrow, I had a 8:15am breakfast meeting with a neighbor, at nearby Panera® in East York, the cleaning ladies were coming at 8:30, and I had a trip to make to Southern York County, so I decided to call it an early night at 9:30pm.
The alarm went-off at 5:45am on Tuesday, to an 18°F cold morning. Heavy frost. After coffee, Del Monte® Red Grapefruit Sections, and a bowl of Shredded Wheat w/ Fruit, I checked the weather and news sites. We're in for some warmer weather for a few days, and then back to Winter, next week. I left at 8am for the meeting, which was over by 9:30, and I headed into Southern York County to get some errands done. I found about 1/3 or the things on my "need-to-get list", and was back home by 12:15pm. I'd left Christmas/New Year Cards and cash for my 2 cleaning ladies, and the Condo was spic-'n-span, with a nice thank you note. I made an Allen Bros Steakburger w/ Chips for lunch, continued with my "ammo project", while listening to Rush and the morning's missed Chris Plante Show Podcast. At 6pm, the Mark Levin Show came on, and I listened while still working on the "ammo project", until 9pm. I have to get the Jeep into S&D Automotive at 9am tomorrow, so I can sleep-in a bit and miss the Mt Rose Ave "morning rush hour" traffic.
I was up at 6:15am on Wednesday, with another bitter cold 18°F and heavy frost outside, turned-up the heat, made coffee, OJ and Sunny-side-Up Eggs, Sausage, Fried Potatoes & Toast, and scanned the weather and news sites. Almost immediately, 15 huge Win-7 Pro Updates came roaring down the pipe from Microsoft, downloaded/installed/restarted and configured my computer. By 8:30, I needed to leave for my 9am routine service appointment at S&D Automotive, so I warmed-up the Jeep, and left. S&D had the Jeep's routine service done in an hour, I paid the bill and left for Hellam Twp to re-inventory the new building & property's recent landscape purchases, which I need to invoice them for. They're going to need another 6-10 trees in early March, so I'll hold the final invoice until those add'ls are chosen. I also stopped at a new auctioneer's, since we'll be taking the GC&N Complex to auction in May-June. I stopped at the Weis Gas 'n Go, in West York, to get fueled w/ my earned-to-date 30¢/gal discount – 19.7gals @ $3.25/gal, 259.7miles/19.7gals = 13.2mpg – and do some food shopping; that West York store is much larger than the one I usually go to in East York, and has a better selection of stuff. I stopped at Dad's house to visit for an hour, afterward, and was home by 12:30pm. For lunch, I made Lentil, Barley & Vegetable Soup and a Monte Cristo Sandwich. It was delicious on a cold Winter's day.
I had some bills to pay, paperwork to do and the monthly/quarterly Condo Budget to revise, while listening to WITF-FM Classical Music all afternoon; it was a nice change from the usual afternoon Talk Radio. I also needed to satart getting my 2012 Income Tax stuff organized from the catch-all file, so that I could answer my CPA's questionaire sheets, and get it to them to do, within 3-4 weeks, as soon as the IRS finalizes all the tax laws. Dad and I'll work on the 2012 GC&N Corporate Taxes, in a few weeks, as soon as the IRS finalizes all the tax laws. At 6pm, the Mark Levin Show came on, and I listened to his take on the pathetic lib-idiot creatures' "gun control" BS, until 9pm. My head was spinning, by then and needed a visit to "La-La Land", for some rest.
Awake at 6am on Thursday, I'd had a really lousy night's sleep. Not very well-rested, bleary eyes, "wet" cough back, and tired. I got up, turned-up the heat, made OJ and coffee, and checked the weather and news sites. 32°F outside. I made Scrambled Eggs, Sausage & Croissant, but barely finished it. By 8 or so, the "blahs" had worn-off, and I got some energy back. I continued on the "ammo project", determined to finish it up today, since it'd dragged-out now for 2+ days. I finally figured how to run thru some 3"x4" Avery 5543 Adhesive Labels for the ammo cartons, boxes, crates and cans. With all the stuff moved from the garage to 8 of the 10 R/S basement shelves' bottom shelfs, sorted and with labels affixed, I called it a completed project. There were a few boxes of oddball ammo which needed smaller cartons, but I shelved them loose, with labels, until the right empty boxes come my way. After a Reuben Sandwich & Fries for lunch, I listened to my usual Talk Radio shows until 9pm, and called it a week. Tomorrow starts a new week here in the "Journal", and right now, there's not much on-tap, but that'll cange quickly. Always does.

In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it becomes impossible to clean-up this mess that YOU voted for. Yes, moronic ∅bummer-asshole idiots: YOU!
Your TSHTF Survival
Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in late-2012 or in early-2013. Don't ask why; I just do.
First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,
Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.
I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?
Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of November 23rd, 1963 – youngest ever Eagle Scout in American History, at 12 years old – Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?
Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.
BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,
This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!
Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!
TSHTF this or next year, and members of the corrupt, criminal US Congress are helping racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "Fuck America!" Obama (SAMBO-IL), by either collaborating with him or cowering before him, on his You are going to see, in metro areas, the absolute worst in humanity, as the people that are most dependent upon a collectivist system, whether they're these Occupy Well Street people, or people who are loaded up with debt, they are totally unprepared for an economic reality where their paradigm does not function. As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. coming "Race War" plan.
We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.
I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?
Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!
