winter is still here
friday, january 21st, 2011
well, New Year 2011 came and went without a "hitch", as we all knew it would.
America needs to regain its manufacturing power in the world, or China will overtake us this year. Unfortunately, 90% of Americans are preoccupied with "American Idol", "Dancing Withe The Stars" and "Live To Dance", and we're falling way behind, no thanks in major part to the leftist and progressive filth, who are running and ruining the country. Leftist thinking is by nature, incoherent; a condition resulting from the chaos of relativism. Relativism, the bedrock of progressive ideology, asserts there is no ultimate truth, allowing leftists to engage in their common practice of asserting one thing today and then completely contradicting themselves tomorrow. Like schizophrenics do. Take it one step further and you have insanity, then chaos and destruction. Progressivism is founded on the absurd belief that certain people can be given the power to give and to take away the rights of other people.
Leftist and progressive garbage must be rooted-out, marginalized and put away where they can do no further damage to America. 2012 may be too late to stop it, and it will take a visionary to lead us out of this mess we're in, and decades to get it done. Do we have a visionary on the horizon? Yes, I'd vote for Sarah Palin in a heartbeat. Do we have decades of time? I don't think so. The world has a "food bubble" about to burst, and we'll also be impacted like few can imagine.
Of course, if the world ends on May 21st, as some nutjobs have predicted, we won't have to worry about any of those problems, will we? Nope.
Meanwhile, Winter is still here and January is getting colder and snowier than December ever was. We're expecting a rash of snow and ice storms - one to hit us tonite and on into Friday noon or so. Snow I can take; it's the ice that'll kill you.
Around The Garden Center
Last Sunday evening, one of my kitchen's recessed ceiling lights burned out, and I used a 3ft stool to change the bulb, instead of the 6ft ladder. The stool went out from under me, I slammed my back into the counter edge and ripped the skin off my right elbow. There was blood all over the kitchen floor, and my back was re-injured like I hadn't felt before. I had excruciating pain. I finally got the bleeding stopped and put a large dressing on the wound. I couldn't even lay down; I had to sleep in my Bentwood Rocking Chair all night, eating handfuls of 324mg aspirin and using an ice-pak. I cleaned-up all the blood the next morning. It's healing slowly now. I went to the hospital for physical therapy and stayed 4 days. I decided to take the week off from the "Journal", but am back on it, now.
Dad's 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo's diver's door would not open, so he had to crawl across the center console to get in and out the passenger door. Not good for an 86-year old man. We took it into S&D Automotive, Mercedes-Benz Specialists - relatives of ours own it - for repairs on Friday at 8:00am, also. We dropped it off at 8am and by 4:30pm, they had it repaired (door actuator broke) and tuned-up. We went back and picked it up at 4:30, just before they closed at 5:00pm. We passed several accidents and traffic was backed-up the opposite direction, for miles on Mt Rose Ave, so when we left S&D, we took the back roads and shortcuts home; me to the east and he to the west on Market Street.
On Friday, I ran errands all morning, after dropping Dad at home, to catch-up from this past week's "incapacitation", got a long-overdue haircut, picked-up an Rx for my BP, dropped a pile of shirts off at the cleaners for washing & starching, and went food shopping to partially restock the condo's garage 10 cuft, top-loading freezer.
The Weather Gadget (Win-7) on my home computer showed Friday night's temp at 12°F/ 3°F Wind Chill, to be one of the most bitter cold nights I can remember in recent history. I wonder how the wild animals survive those temps? Probably a lot of them don't.
I had the best night's sleep on Friday night, since my severe back injury last Sunday. No pain! The 324mg aspirin helped, I'm sure. I could sleep on both sides, my back and stomach without pain. Amazing, after 5 nights with hardly any sustained sleep. I felt great.
I spent Saturday resting my back in the condo, catching-up on some small, lightweight "chores" I'd neglected and my cleaning lady & her husband didn't get done, while I was in physical therapy. Lee stopped by with some of his famous homemade fruit salad, which is delicious. We spent 2hrs watching Pink Floyd videos, and reminiscing about the "old days" of rock concerts we'd been to, over the past years.
I watched the NFC Divisional Playoffs between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers; something I haven't done for years. Steelers won, 31-24. I gave-up on so-called Pro Football about 10 years ago, as well as all sports, even auto racing. I just didn't have the time to watch all that stuff and run my business, too. But since I was staying in the condo all weekend and resting-up, except for planning to go to Mom & Dad's for a crabcake sandwich lunch on Sunday, it was better than nothing.
I had a terrible night sleeping on Saturday night, and only got about 2hrs. I was dead-tired on Sunday morning, worrying about incomplete projects and other things at the Garden Center. Plus, my back started hurting again and it was difficult to sleep with the pain, no matter how much aspirin I took all night; I must have been up 10-15 times during the night. So I opted to stay inside the condo and rest-up on Sunday, rather than take a chance on driving to Mom & Dad's for lunch and nodding-off while driving. Lee stopped by for a few hours and we watched the first half of the AFC Divisional Playoffs between the New York Jets and New England Patriots. Jets won, 28-21.
Since we were going to get whammed by freezing rain, sleet and snow Monday evening and all day Tuesday, I called my cleaning lady and her husband to come in on Monday, instead of my regular day, Tuesday, since it'll be an ugly day of "wintry mess". If I felt better than I did on Sunday and the back pain subsided enough for me to get to quality sleep, I decided to go to the Garden Center for a couple of hours. If not, I'll just stay home and they can "work around me". I'll see in the morning. I called it a night at 9:00pm and went to bed.
I was at the Garden Center by 9:15am, and got 2 of the 3 overdue projects on my desk, done. I also answered 14 of the 31 messages left on my phone's tape. Then I called it a day by 11:30am and went home to rest. It started snowing around 8:30pm and continued to snow and sleet all night, leaving us with about 2-3-4" (various places) and an icy coating over everything. I stayed inside all day. I started watching the weather maps for the rest of the week, looking at another potentially-massive storm headed our way: a very large snowstorm for Wednesday through Friday.
On Wednesday, I opened-up the Garden Center gate chain at 9:00am, with Arthur floowing in 25 minutes, to begin plowing the 4-5" we had accumulated over the past few snowstorms. I warmed-up the Main Bldg and Office, and began work on the last 2-3 projects on my desk, and completed them by noon. Arthur reported to me that once again one of our dumptrucks had had all its gas siphoned-off by a thief, and we had to take it and some empty "jerry cans" to the Shell Station in Stewartstown, to refill both. This is about the 10th time it's happened over the past year, and each time I've reported it to the local township police, who are powerless to do anything about it without direct evidence, like pics or a dead body.
I tried buy "Justified: The First Complete Season" on the web, but all the sites were "phishing scams", wanting bank account numbes, routing numbers, passwords and PINs to my account. I immediately closed my Opera v11.0 browser, and will now try some local stores, like Target etc. What a hassle! Finally, I found it on FX-TVs site, yet it doesn't ship until Jan 25th. Damn.
On Thursday, I met Arthur and Kim at the Garden Center; Arthur to do some shovelling projects and Kim worked with me to "fill holes" in our Spring orders, by making a list of what's needed, by vendor. She and I will get back together next and call the broker reps to see what's available. Still plenty of time to get things done until Spring finally arrives.
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!
"Slime Magazine" can't even get it right. Read Bryan Walsh's crap and tripe about blizzards.
Things Which Make Your Head Explode
Because of "budget cuts and demotions", NYC City Union Thugs & Punks left the streets unplowed for days and now weeks, in protest. All need to be imprisoned or shot, IMO, and be replaced with hard-working, non-union people.
The National Debt Limit has topped $14 TRILLION for the first time, ever. Anyone have any duct tape? My head's ready to explode!
Once again, DEA Federal Stormtroopers raid the wrong house and rough-up an innocent family, with zero repercussions for them.
The U.S. Postal Service announced plans to hike postage rates on several different types of mail in April. The USPS should be defunded and mail delivery given to private companies to do. They're losers!
Some People Just Need Killing
This will do it!
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!
Jared Lee Loughner, the left-wing-progressive Tucson murderer of 6 and wounder of 14+, needs killing ASAP. KILL HIM! No trial or life imprisonment, at Taxpayers' expense, for the rest of his unnatural leftist-progressive life!
Don't deport this subhuman, murderous, drunken, piece-of-lowlife-shit, Mario Montalban-Ramirez, 61 (aka Oscar Yturria), KILL HIM!
