Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
("We hope for better things, it will rise from the ashes")
Friday, July 9th, 2010
you can listen to all the unadulterated BS coming from DC and The White House, but the fact is we're in for a depression, not just a moderate recession like we've been through. The "glory days" of America are over. And following the depression will come hyper-inflation.
There is no recovery. It's the US Federal Gov't doing all the hiring. It's all in their socialist minds that we're recovering from a recession, when federal, state and local taxes are going up, small businesses like mine lose customers, who've lost their jobs or are just plain scared of what will happen next week or next month. I can't blame them at all. I'm quite worried, myself, for what I see coming in January 2011, when all the regulations and taxes kick-into effect.
I see the Feds taking-over more and more of the private sector, strictly-controlling the Net, taxes going through the ceiling, more Gov't do-nothing employees being hired than private sector workers, the economy sagging even further into a morass, a depression unlike anything the world has ever been through, the stock market bubble collapsing, hyper-inflation, gangs of unemployed, starving people roaming the streets and breaking into homes to steal food just to survive, home invasions, robberies, civil unrest which makes the 70s & 80s look tame by comparison, American cities being "dirty nuked" by murderous, subhuman muslim filth, food stores emptying-out and not being refilled on time, looting and rampages, Conservative Citizen Militias shooting and killing looters/rapists/robbers/home invaders etc by the tens-of-thousands since the police and National Guard are overwhelmed with the numbers of rampaging looters and their violence, bread costing $150/ loaf and so much more I could fill the page. I see Law & Order broken down into its most carnal components: survival at any cost, to anyone who gets in their way. I see illegal alien filth and muslim garbage bombing hospitals, nursing homes, schools, day care centers, college campuses, shopping malls, sports gatherings, busses, carjackings and so much more. Murderous muslim terrorists need killing, IMO!
Yet, racist half-breed Øbummer says, "we're moving in the right direction", with 125,000 more jobs lost in June. 13,000 jobs were created in the private sector. Divided by 50 states, that's a whopping 260 jobs per state. Wowser, president sambo! Your trillion dollar stimulus package is really working, isn't it, asshole?. Now, What about the other 9,000,000 jobs YOU lost within the past 18 months?, Øbummer lowlife dirtbag? How's that "hopey & changey" thingy working for you, friends?
Around The Garden Center™
Friday was one of the nicest days we've had in many weeks. 73°F and only 34% humidity. It was nice not sweating or having to use the AC in my office. I finished-up two more Landscape Estimates and HICPA Contracts, and gave them to Rich, my Staff Registered Landscape Architect at the 3pm Key Staff Meeting, so he could present them with his designs directly to the prospective clients. It was also a good day for my 20-year, 43 year-old friend Jim's funeral and burial, in New Freedom (PA). I went to his viewing at 1pm on Thursday, and the place was packed.
I'm transferring hundreds of movies from my Seagate 360Mb External HD to the Western Digital 1-Tb HD, for storage and replay/ restore. I'll use the older Seagate260 to back-up the 2 front counter register computers, while using my two new 1-Tb WD HDs to store and back-up the office and home machines'' data. Working on the transfers, right now. It's going to run all night.
The septic pump quit on Friday afternoon, due to moisture in the wires and a short-circuit, so I had to get our septic pumper in to re-splice the 6 wires and reseal them. The 5hp pump ($6,500) is working fine, but the wiring is absorbing water. Shouldn't be happening, even after 21 years. Damn.
The 3 wells shut-down sometime Friday night and none of the 12 zones got watered. Sediment is clogging the system and shutting down the holding tanks. I cleaned the filter on Saturday morning, reset the tanks, and am waiting for the well to re-charge, so I can re-program the watering system to go through its actions on the zones. Otherwise, with 95°F-plus temps on Sunday and Monday, lots of nursery stock will be fried by Monday, without adequate watering. Shit; it's always "something", here.
The roads were all but deserted on the way into work on Saturday morning at 7:30am, but I expect them to fill-up as the day goes on and everyone else goes shopping for BBQ food for Sunday, July 4th festivities and get-together's. Our watering system didn't go off, since it was clogged with clay falling in from the walls of the 419ft well. I had to manually scrub the filter and reset the system, checking it every hour of so. Ditto, all day Sunday, while everyone else was celebrating our Nations 234th Birthday, I was scrubbing the filter and resetting the irrigation system in 100°F heat/ Heat Index 106°F. It was awful. I went to Mom & Dad's for an old fashioned 4th of July Picnic Lunch: hot dogs, potato salad, cole slaw, watermelon.
On Monday morning at 8am, Jennifer gave me her 2 week notice that she was quitting. She's leaving Monday, July 19th to go to work for another MD company who works for the State of Maryland as a landscape inspector, like her husband Dave, does, after leaving me 4-5 years ago. No, I'm not mad or angry; just very, very disappointed that she'd leave me in the middle of my season, as her husband did at the beginning of my season 5 years ago. I like them both personally, but resent what they've done to my company. I've hired a lady with 32yrs in the business as Nursery & Greenhouse Manager, but not horticuluralist, since she's not degreed and certified. This is quite a bad time for me, for her to be leaving, but she's been "fast tracked" into the position over 5 other candidates and can't turn it down. Too much money and benefits etc, which I can't match.
Exhibiting prudence, I cut short our work days to 8am - 12noon, normally from 8am - 5pm, due to the excessive heat, humidity and accompanying heat indexes. Although the LSCP Crew takes plenty of water along and frequent breaks, I see no reason for heat stroke or exhaustion, simply for a landscape job. We'll just extend the current and future jobs a few extra days, until temps get down in the more manageable mid-80s range, instead of the near-100°F. I've had heat stroke once in NYC at 115°F, and it wasn't fun waking-up at a Sloan-Kettering Hospital, packed-in-ice, in the ICU.
We're in a serious drought once again, with a mere 5" of rain in June, instead of the 13-15" we usually have. We've had none so far in July. Plants are withering-up and defoliating like I not seen in many years. No wonder people aren't planting or doing landscape jobs, even with the Drip Irrigation Systems which I spec-in for their gardens.
On Tuesday, I saw two banks' electronic signs reading 106°F. Same on Wednesday; 105°F. My Jeep's thermometer read 99°F. We quit at 12 noon and I called the LSCP Crew back in so none of them would get heat stroke or exhaustion. My first loyalty is to my employees, always.
All the electric power — household, CATV, NET etc — went-off at 4pm, and finally came back at 7pm. Over 45,000 customers were affected. Red Lion and Hanover still son't have power, as of 2pm Thursday. The currrent power grid is so outdated and fragile, and each year the demand upon it increases manifold, that we're going to have a "brownout/ blackout" like never seen before.
The “Virtual Cabin” – A Novella™
After leaving the GC& Complex around 12:15pm, due to excessive heat, humidity and heat indexes, I drove up to The Cabin just to get away from it all.
Jennifer's two-week notice resignation had me bummed-out, though I was expecting "something was amiss with her", and with 4-6 hours to kill, I wanted to get caught-up on some chores around The Cabin and property. I pulled into the circle drive, with it's front deck and massive picnic tables, disarmed the Choice One Security System, and Jenny was all over me like "white on rice", happy to see me. We rolled around on the bearskin rugs, and I gave her a good rubdown and back-scratching; something I hadn't done in several weeks. Her food and water dishes were refilled quickly, and she was appreciative.
Even though the property is heavily-wooded, it was hot up there, but a mildly-cool breeze blew through the trees. I unpacked my overnight bag, shaved, showered and got into some clean clothes. My mailbox runneth over with virtual mail. I brought my cellphone along on this trip. I needed to go into town and make a few important stops about the Dewey Holtzapple Shooting on June 4th, and where it legally stood. Plus, I needed some 4-5 furnace/ AC filters (1" x 16" x 25") to replace the one that'd been replaced once in the Winter.
I drove into Adam's Junction to see and chat with Sheriff Roy Bunce, but he kindly referred me to the County DA, who was handing the Dewey Holtzapple Shooting Case, with the Grand Jury. Roy looked at his latest reports and said "it was self-defense and no action would be taken against me by the County or State of PA". BUt he also advised me to call DA Stan Robbins, and speak to him directly, and if possible, have a face-to-face meeting about it all. He have my the DA's card, and I promised to get on it ASAP. "Good shooting", Sheriff Bunce said. "There only 29 of those assholes left, and we're hoping that you can neutralize them all. I don't think a Grand Jury in the County would have a problem with it". I wasn't so sure. 30 dead men, all by me? But meth labs and coke distribution points were another matter, for the Feds. Not for me.
I called DA Stan Robbins' office number and left my cellphone with his paralegal sec'y. She said she was familiar with the case and he'd call back before the end of the day to talk.
County DA Stan Robbins called back with 15 minutes, and said that the County Grand Jury wasn't going to prosecute me, for killing Dewewy, in self-defense. They wre glad he was dead, and wished I take-out all the Holtzapple scum. He also reminded me that if I killed the rest of the Holtzapple Clan, in self-defense, no charges would be filed, but I'd have to *prove that* scenario. Usually, the local police confiscate the killing weapon — Mu Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP — and Concealed Carry Permit, but they decided not to because of my 3-yr Special Forces service in 'Nam in the 70s.
Things Which Make Your Head Explode™
Spitting in the US Supreme court's collective eyes and on the US Constitution's 2nd Amendment, the Chicago City Council on Friday approved what city officials say is the strictest handgun ordinance in the United States. The 45-0 vote came four days after a Supreme Court ruling made it almost certain that Chicago's handgun ban would be overturned. The high court ruled Americans have a right to own a gun for self-defense anywhere they live. The new city ordinance bans gun shops in Chicago and prohibits gun owners from stepping outside their homes, even onto their porches or garages, with a handgun. It will take effect in 10 days. Daley and the corrupt city council need to be stood against a wall, IMO.
Where's the Duct Tape®?
Now, a federal judge in Connecticut has sided with a Machinists union in its legal fight to block jet engine maker Pratt & Whitney from moving 1,000 jobs out of the state. US District Judge Janet Hall issued a permanent injunction Friday, stopping the company's plans to shift the jobs to Columbus, Ga., Japan and Singapore. Think the judge is in the union's pocket? Yes, I do.
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.
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™
This will do it!.
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.
This worthless, piece-of-subhuman-shit sambo, Dontae Rashawn Morris, truly needs a .45cal ACP bullet to the head, and not just life in prison, with a hope of parole in 15-20 years, for murdering two Tampa police officers. So does the lowlife whore-bitch who was with him.
