it's worse than you think
friday, july 24th, 2009
they're hiding the sum of the pieces, behind all the myriad little and medium pieces flying around in so many bills, it makes one dizzy and disoriented. The corrupt White House and criminal US Congress are moving so fast on *millions/billions/trillions* in new, UNREAD-BY-CONGRESS legislation, that it's beyond merely "dizzying"; it's really a red pill vs blue pill choice. Truth or unending fantasy? Reality or continued lies?
Stay with me on this.
They own the banking industry (2008). They own the airline industry (after 9-11). They own the automobile industry (2009). They own the public schools (1960s onward). They own the investment banking industry (2009). They've owned much of the health care industry — Medicare and Medicaid —, and have screwed that up unbelievably. They will soon own all of the health care industry (2009). They've just passed a law that all student loans will be made through the US Government; not from any private sources. And that's coupled with 10 years 'servitude' in the corrupt, criminal ACORN-approved group, such as AmeriCorps, for debt forgiveness, instead of 10 years of market-based interest payments.
Not only will they own all of our childrens' presents and futures, they already own the re-written curricula and history that all of those innocent children have, are and will read, about America's History. What I learned in the 50s & 60s schools, ISN'T what's being taught as fact and truth, these days and decades. It's statist, socialist, communist, anti-America, anti-US Military and anti-everything you and I know to be The Truth.
I'm going to try to keep my head in-balance, while all those around me are losing theirs. Join me, please.
In the 50s & 60s, exposed as the lowlife, dirtbag, subversive, anti-America filth they were, when the US Communist Party 'dissipated' and went 'underground' to legitimately form "Green Peace", "Nature Conservancy", "Sierra Club", "Acorn", "Green Peace" and a hundred other "Eco-Friendly" groups, they gained stature and structure through millions and billions in funding. Thousands of slimy atty's came out from the festering-sewers they'd be relegated to through The Pro-American McCarthy Hearings, and legitimized themselves and those organizations. Now, they have stature and standing in the courts, and can influence US Society in many ways, to America's detriment and demise.
Personally, I'd stand all of them up against a stone wall, and summarily execute them all. Subhuman, anti-American, hate-US Military filth, deserve such summary treatment, IMO. I'd do it N/C to my Fellow US Taxpayers, BTW.
America is under attack from ***The Enemies Within***, which are far more dangerous than Russia, China, islam etc. To wit:
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor—he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation—he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared — Cicero, 42 B.C."
Obama, the US Congress, the lib-dems & RINOs are complicit TRAITORS and SEDITIONISTS, and must be completely and totally removed from power, if America is to survive, IMO.
They are mulcting America; make no mistake about it!
America needs to take the red pill, as in The Matrix. Instead, Obama wants us to take the poison pill of socialism and allow more US Gov't involvement in programs which are destined to fail, for exactly that reason.
Civil War III isn't far off the horizon, IMO. Red pill and blue pills won't matter, anymore.
Around The Garden Center™.
Housing starts surging 3.6% from May to June? That's potentially good news for me and my business, but I wonder if we'll see it sustained and if we'll see it around this area? I suspect both answers are "no".
Friday was both payday for my employees, and another stinker of a hot, humid day in the upper-80s. These are the Dog Days of Summer, afterall, and they'll continue into mid-August. Already, my employees are scheduling 3-5 day vacations for themselves. I got payroll done and began work on 2 remaining lscp estimates. I had to cancel the regular 3pm Key Staff Mtg, due to customers coming by to discuss a pending $35,000+ hardscape job. Rain moved through the area and soaked us while we were in the Nursery, and the ugly HICPA Law has reared its Medusa-like Head, once again, in interpretation of the "Law vs Intent". (sigh) We'll work it out, somehow. T-storms rumbled through the area late Friday afternoon and evening, dropping only about 2/10" of much-needed rainfall; just enough to wet the mulch, refresh the parched grass, and not much more.
Saturday was a very comfortable day, but retail traffic was sparse as usual, for July. It'll be the same way for August, as some of our customers take their usual July/August vacations — or in these economic time, "stay-cations at home" — and just do little or nothing, especially if their jobs are as tenuous as many seem to be. So be it.
I slept-in Sunday until almost 11am, made a 5-high stack of French Toast, gourmet 100% Kona ($85/lb) coffee (in turkish grind), fed the cats, checked my food shopping list, and headed-off to Weis Market in East York. I stopped by Mom & Dad's for around an hour, to visit, since I'd missed dinner with them the previous Sunday. The new BP Rx meds are kicking my butt, but I'll adjust to them in a short while.
Monday was another "Groundhog Day". I worked on one, 2-phase, LSCP Estimate & accompanying HICPA Contracts; normally, it would have only taken me >45mins for the LSCP Estimates, but with the added contracts, it took nearly 2½ hours. Sigh; I'll get better and faster at it, with some more practice. Probably.
Exactly 40 years ago on Monday evening — 7/20/69 — home from college for the summer, before heading off to Woodstock I was sitting in my parent's home, in Convent Station (NJ) watching Apollo 11 land on the moon. Next to JFK's assassination and funeral, it was the biggest TV event in world history. Some ignorant assholes still believe it was faked, on a set in Arizona. Un-fricking-believable, isn't it?.
On Tuesday, I worked on several new LSCP Estimates, in conjunction with the new, hated-by-me HICPA Contracts, and decided to have a meeting with both James & Seth, to review and clarify how we, as a company, do these contracts in concert with my usual Preliminary LSCP Estimates. Seth had already questioned the Law vs Intent, and James also needed some clarification, as he prepares all the data and specs I use to put together a customer's estimate. We set the meeting for Wednesday at 8am.
The Wednesday morning meeting was much-needed, aired-out a lot of questions about procedures etc, and gave all three of us a better idea of what the Landscape Estimates & Hardscape Contracts should contain. I worked on two new estimates, but deferred them until Friday, since I was going to take Thursday off. But the more I thought about it: Dad at 85, Jennifer & 15-yr old Matt both useless to load large plants/trees, mulch or soil; all of a sudden at 8pm Wednesday, I almost decided to come back in on Thursday, to "handle things", if need be. I asked reliable Seth to cover for me, and he did. (((sigh))) DAMMIT! Two damned days-off in a week just isn't possible. I'm never hiring a 15-yr old kid to help Jennifer again; either he can operate machinery and stay until 5pm to help Dad close-up the GC Complex, or I'll do without him. Memo to self for 2010.
I took Thursday off, slept-in until 11am, did some errands and shopping, and came home around 2pm, to get some chores done around the condo. It was 87°F with 77% humidity, after the heavy downpours, so I worked inside.
Here's some "lawn & garden secrets" for the Summer months.
Things Which Make Your Head Explode™.
I AGREE 100%: toss out the results of the last election, remove Barrack Obama from office, repeal the 16th and 17th amendments to the US Constitution (and Roe v. Wade, of course), abolish a host of government agencies, remove all 535 assholes from office, and give all governmental power to the individual states! Therefore, We the People of America choose to exercise our right to throw off and alter the abusive government by peacefully recalling and removing from office the President of the United States, the Vice President of the United States and all U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives effective immediately.
The History Channel's "Life After People", is a real eye-opener. Have you seen it? Yikes. Nature wins; we lose.
Blacks in Philly sue over White Message Board: Domelights.com? Fucking bullshit, IMO! Get over it subhuman porchmonkeys!
Things Which Make Your Eyes Squirt Blood™.
Walter Cronkite, the long-time CBS anchorman, died Friday, according to reports. Cronkite who anchored the “CBS Evening News” from 1962 to 1981, was 92 years old. Good riddance, commie asshole filth! He hated the Brave US Military, America, and was a card-carrying commie, fascist piece-of-shit. The real Wally Cronkite was a treasonous, seditious piece-of-shit. Rot in hell, you MFSOB!
Home Invasions On The Increase.
Three home invasions in one week, in York County? • Just after 1 a.m. Thursday in the first block of North Tremont Street in York, 42-year-old man Ronald Lee Simmons Jr. was shot and killed in a break-in; • Just after 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, three men forced their way into a home in the 1300 block of South Queen Street in Spring Garden Township as a woman, her daughter and two granddaughters slept inside. A 42-year-old man, who was not identified, was taken to York Hospital after being stabbed. A shot was fired, but no one was hit; • About 4:30 p.m. Monday, three men forced their way into a home in the 200 block of Church Street in Glen Rock and removed property as a mother and her 7-month-old baby were inside.
3 more home invasions, due to Obama's faltering economy. I'm ready to kill any and all invaders!
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. O2 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?
Fonts For You™.
Many Journal entries are best viewed in the Charrington Roughened and the Orlando typefaces.

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!
A jury has convicted an imprisoned sex offender of murder in the 1975 strangulation death of a Girl Scout in Tennessee. Nine-year-old Marcia Trimble disappeared while delivering Girl Scout cookies in her Nashville neighborhood, and her body was found near her home 33 days later. A jury on Saturday convicted 62-year-old Jerome Barrett of two counts of second-degree murder. He faces 44 years in prison on each count in this case. Barrett is currently serving a life sentence for the 1975 rape and murder of a Vanderbilt University student. Kill the filth!
Part exposé of the evils of factory farming, part food consciousness agitprop, and part spoof of "The Matrix" films, "The Meatrix", and its recently released sequel "The Meatrix II: Revolting," depict the adventures of a pig named Leo and a hunky, spiffily-dressed bull named Moopheus. When the two first meet, the wise, hyper-enunciating bull (speaking in a dead-on Laurence Fishburne imitation) offers the chubby little swine a chance to see the truth of his rural homeland ("Do you want to know What. It. Is?"). Leo obligingly swallows the red pill and embarks on a tour of corporate agriculture's dark side. If you choose not to take the pill, or even if you take it and disagree with what Moopheus has to say, the site is nonetheless worth checking out, if only as a lively, witty, and sharp example of the Web used well.
