the .45cal acp debate
friday, june 24th, 2011
personally, I like a high-powered, .45cal ACP Cor-Bon® 160gr-260gr round such as the mega-destructive, "Black Widow" round and evil "fangs" (pictured above) built into the greatly-expanding tip, or even FMJ (full metal jackets), to instantly drop and kill an attacker, mugger, robber, murderous subhuman muslim terrorist/white trash/nigga/wetback criminal, or whatever subhuman "intentionally-comes my way" to do me, my Family and Friends any kind of physical (and emotional) harm. I'm "well-trained to deliver" a very fast 2 or 3-shots to the aorta/lungs/heart – in the "Thorasic Triangle Area" – and 1 final shot to the forehead, and have the EMTs *tag 'em & bag 'em*; very little paperwork for the LEO's to do, except write-it-up, and file it with the County DA's Grand Jury for a "determination of self-defense". If the Penna "Castle Doctrine" Bill (R-33) quickly-passes and Gov John Corbett (Conservative-PA) signs it, many "positive things" will change for us legitimate, law-abiding, Conservative, PA-CCW Permit Holders, in self-defense and overall self- and home-car-work protections. Go Assembly and Gov John!
(NOTE: On Friday, PA House Bill 40, the NRA-backed "Castle Doctrine" legislation, passed in the PA State Senate by a 45 to 5 vote. This bill will now go to Governor Tom Corbett for his consideration. Introduced by state Representative Scott Perry (R-92), HB 40 would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their home and any place outside of their home where they have a legal right to be. If enacted into law, it would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attackers family, when force or deadly force, is used. The companion bill to HB 40, PA Senate Bill 273, was sponsored by Richard Alloway II (R-33). YEAH, it's about time! Sign it into law, Gov Corbett, as you promised when you were elected by me and millions of other Conservatives and Tea Partiers, dammit! It's all about OUR AND OUR FAMILIES' PROTECTION.)
Although I personally carry a 5" Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP, in a Galco FED Holster for full-size 5" Kimber .45cal, with a Galco Dual 8-Round Mag Carrier for my Kimber .45cal, my bias isn't "on display too much", is it? I prefer it's absolute knock-down power over that of any other semi-automatic on the market, when my shots are "properly-placed".
At 930ft/sec, it's a "sub-sonic" round, but does more cavitation and internal damage to the human body than almost anyother caliber, except the .50cal BMG. But remember: "shot placement counts", first and foremost. My Glock Model 32 .357SIG is super-sonic at 3,200 ft/sec, but I consider it an "unsafe semi-automatic", compared to my Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP, which has a double external safety and is far more accurate, since it's a $1,350.00+ "match pistol".9mms, .32cals & .38cals are for sissies and women; a .45cal ACP is a real man's gun! Why do I carry a .45cal? Because they don't make a .46cal!
The debate about "centermass shots" rages here and here, as well as all over these following websites, as well as caliber and bullet preference debates. I've do own the Colt Trooper MK III .357 Magnum and Glock Model 32 .357 SIG, and can tell you personally, from ballistics tests which I've seen, that the .45cal will stop any man dead in his tracks with one well-placed upper Thoracic or "Sniperís Triangle" shot, except in the extremities (hands, arms, legs). There, it will be very painful, mangling and probably incapacitating for a few minutes; just enough time to get to the perp quickly and put a final round through his forehead, throat or spine and kill him instantly. End of problem.
The upper Thoracic or "Sniperís Triangle" is the area you should aim for because it has a greater concentration of arteries and major organs (heart & lungs) than any other part of the body. This area is generally located between the armpits (nipples) and the bottom of the neck. Mentally draw a line horizontally between both armpits and then – from each side – draw two more lines inwards at 45° angles towards the base of the throat. This is the vulnerable "Thoracic Triangle Area", where blood pressure usually drops the quickest and results in unconsciousness faster than lower center mass hits will.
Personally, I like the "Thorasic Triangle Area", between the armpits and the throat or the tough-to-hit, head shot; they're both "instantly fatal" and the perp has no 3-6secs to return fire. He's "dead man stumbling" and down immediately due to massive incapacitation, bleeding-out and dying very quickly. Just what a potential victim who defends himself wants to happen. A QUICK, DEAD ATTACKER!
I truly hope it never comes to this, in my case, but if it does, I'm well-prepared for it.
Around The Garden Center
After getting home at 3:30pm, I fed and watered Murphy, played with him for a while, and watched a *two-fer* from "Iron Chef America" (Iron Chef Flay v Chef Burke in "Battle Lamb" (meat which I don't eat, along with baby veal, as they are "cruel meats", IMO), on Food Network CATV from 7-8pm. (Iron Chefs are always listed first.) And from 8-9pm, "Iron Chef America" (Iron Chef Garza v husband & wife team –, a first for "ICA". – Chefs Yang & Circe), in "Battle Hawaiian Moi"). Moi is an semi-rare, exotic whitefish from Hawaii. There were some oils and sauces in both shows, which I carefully-noted and will use someday, in my cheffing efforts. I closed-down at 9pm, and was upstairs and asleep with Murphy by 9:15pm. Alarm set for 5am, but I'd probably be up long before then.
I slept through to 5am, took care of Murphy, made Cheese Grits & Sunny-Side-Up Eggs" for breakfast and French Roast drip coffee, and headed-out to work. The hot, humid weather would be returning over the weekend and next week, as we just had a most-welcomed "minor respite" from all that Summer weather in this area. I sat down with Alan to go over the day's work schedule, including the next 2 weeks, and with Jon, who'd be getting numerous trees ready for pick-up by customers, on Saturday. Rich had dropped-off 4 new lscp plans at my condo last evening, and I already had the plant lists which he'd emailed me on Thursday, s I had a full plate for the day just getting several of them done.
With my early "Summer Hours" beginning and closing on next Sunday, June 26th, I'll be able to leave work at 5pm on Saturday, and drive-up to "The Cabin" for some well-earned R&R for a day or so, after working 7-days-a-week, for the past 5-6 weeks, since Dad had his heart attack. I'll stay in close touch with him, even when I'm up there to make sure he & Mom are both doing okay. Wow, I just noticed that I also have TWO DAYS OFF at the end of the month – Sunday, June 26th and Monday, July 4th – and I have no idea of what I'm going to do, with all that "free time on my hands"! Sleep and shop? Chores around the condo? Come into work and work on lscp estimates; nah! I'll figure out something. Looks like an extended 2-3 day visit to "The Cabin" will once again be in my very near future.Retire? Are you kidding? On what?
I went to my 8pm Church Meeting in Red Lion (PA) and was home by 9:30. Not having to be at work until 8am, I stayed-up until almost 10pm. Since I still have to work on Sunday, but don't have to be in until 11am, I can sleep later, after feeding and water Murphy and making breakfast; I'll make coffee after I get up at 9:30, to get me going. It promised to be a warm and humid weekend and week, so I'm not looking forward to it. Murphy followed me upstairs at 10pm, to sleep. I left the alarm at 5am, and would get into the Complex to "get started" on a pile of estimates to be revised, as well as a pile Rich had already sent on Friday.
I was up at 3:30am, no thanks to Murphy wanting a drink of water from the bathroom sink, and went back to sleep until 5am, when the alarm went off. Then, I was up for good. I took care of his feeding and watering, made a big breakfast, and had 3hrs before I had to be into work at 8, instead of the usual 6:30am. So made some Eggs Benedict, 3 mugs of French Roast Coffee (Turkish Drip Grind from whole beans; try it!) and started a load of laundry. Temps were already at 65°F with 90°F humidity, and I knew it wasn't going to be a pleasant and Spring-like days, as the past 3-4 had been. I set out for work at 7am and the roads were nearly empty, except for the Red Lion idiots setting-up for their annual shitty "yard sales", which block traffic and cause pedestrian hazards and injuries. I sure hope the Southern Regional Police are on top of this crap before someone gets hurt or killed walking out from between cars!
I opened-up at 7:30am, and Dad, Steffi & Jon showed-up at 8am. One of our customers stopped by to pick-up his now "cloud-pruned" Alberta Spruce (Picea abies "Alberta"), which I'd spent 4-5hrs on pruning, and Dad gave the guy the special pot we'd bought-in for him, at under our cost! How the f•ck am I going to stay in business at a loss on a simple pottery sale? JFC!! What's wrong with these damned people, anyway? The customer was quite prepared to pay full price (with mark-up), and Dad gave it away for less than cost! How am I going to stay in business, at this rate. God knows what other crap he's pulled when I'm not there to supervise. It's soon time to "retire him" from the business. GDMFS! That shit ruined my damned day.
Officially, Summer started this Tuesday, the 20th, but as far as I'm concerned, it technically started right after Memorial Day (Monday, May 30th), with the heat and humidity. Ergo, we're on "Summer Hours" now: Mon–Sat, 8am–5pm; Closed on Sunday, beginning this week.
I've been saying for almost a year that this crap is going to be happening with more frequency, and now it is. Hundreds, if not thousands of times, already across the Nation. That's why, when the doorbell rings and I even know who's waiting, I "answer the door" with the Kimber .45cal hidden behind the door in my right hand, and open the know with my left hand. You can never tell who's behind your guests or hiding in the bushes, ready to burst-in and do unspeakable things to you and them. Arm yourselves and shoot them dead, IMO!
I did a complete/selected back-up of both data and apps, on my office machine, to update certain folders which I've added to over the past 5-6mos, onto an external Western Digital 1Tb HD. Some folders were small and transferred quickly; a few others were *HUGE* and took hours. I usually do this weekly, but have forgotten over the past few months due to so much activity. I'll have to set it to "auto back-up" and get it done at night, since there's so much to save and I'm not using the machine. I then unplug the external HD and take it home for safekeeping, in case a robbery occurs or the joint burns down. So far, even with 3 past burglaries, no computers or equipment have been taken or destroyed, fortunately.
Warm and very humid, we had a number of retail customers through on Saturday, loaded 4 CuYds of mulch, Jon and I loaded some pre-bought/ container and dug (B&B) trees, and I finished 2 of the 4 landscape estimates, for which Rich sent me customer plant lists, last week. I decided to close at 3pm, since traffic had slowed considerably. Sunday was another day, with short hours of 11am – 3pm. We'd be going on "Summer Hours", being closed on Sundays and I'd also have Monday, July 4th off; two days in a row! You can bet I'll be catching-up on my sleep, as well as getting some much overdue shopping done.
I ran a few errands along the way home, and finally relaxed in the condo's AC, watching Fox News and the Food Network channels for the evening, while deciding to get some early shut-eye around 9pm. I ordered DVDs of Seasons 1 & 2 of the now-discontinued – but perhaps one of the best CBS TV series ever, next to "24" and "Justified" – "Jericho", from Amazon. Here's a "preview" of Season 2: Episode 7, and another, Season 2 Episode 5; judge for yourself. I have watched both Seasons 1 & 2 numerous times, and still could watch them numerous, over and over again.
I went upstairs to sleep with Murphy right behind me, after watching news and 2 "Bobby Flay's Throwdowns" – "Fried Green Tomato BLTs" and "Philly Foot-Long Brisket Grinder/Sub/Hero etc Sandwiches" – both which made my mouth drool. I took an Rx-prescribed 1mg Lunesta and went to sleep, almost immediately, ready for some shopping at Weis Market, at 8:30am on Sunday, before work. I slept like a baby through the passing t-storms, to the south of us, near the Mason-Dixon Line, where my Complex is located. I set the alarm for 5am, but was sure I'd sleep through it.
I slept until 7am – a real treat for me instead of having to get-up at 4:40 – and unused to the extra 2hrs, groggily took care of Murphy's water and food needs, made 3 slow-fried, sunny-side-up eggs with (choice of) grits and Keller's® Butter and French Roast Coffee (Turkish Grind from whole beans, of course!), took a shower, grabbed some fresh clothes and left the condo for Weis Market around 7:30am. Since they don't really "open" until 8am with multiple cashiers, it doesn't do much good to do my shopping and then stand in a single check-out line with 15-20 other people, as no other lines are open, then.
At 61°F, it was cool and crisp, though already humid at 93%, but I didn't mind it yet. I hate humidity. That's what the AC is for in the Jeep. Instead of the roads and store "being empty" on a Sunday morning, traffic was beginning to stir. I stopped and gassed-up the Jeep for the week ahead, on the way. After arriving at Weis, I zipped through my list – most of it Fancy Feast– Cat Food for Murphy, and a few "incidentals" for me – and was out of there within 25mins. Forecast for 84°F and "warm", it promised to be a mildly-tolerable day, with the rest of the week about the same, except for Thursday in the 90s, and t-storms during the latter part of the week. We all know how that the "weather changes by the minute", so it was just their un-educated guess on WGAL-TV.
After getting back and unpacking, I swept-out the garage, front porch and walk, did some weed spraying with Round-Up® 10% Herbicide, and made a mental bet with myself that this was going to be a busy week: the sunroom porch glass would arrive, I'd have dismantle the one set of track and pull-down blinds/ re-hang them after the glass was installed, submit all kinds of paperwork to Penn Nation Ins Co, and go after the scumbags at CHCA for my $250 policy deductible. Between trips to the condo, burning-off tanks of gas and wasted time, I'd not get much done on the pending landscape estimates, but be able to keep the crew, Steffi & Kim focused on their tasks. At least we'd be closing on Sunday, and I would have Monday off for the July 4th Holiday. Yeah; I'd definitely being going to "The Cabin" right after work on Saturday, after closing early at 3pm.
I left for work on Sunday at 10:15, and the roads were beginning to fill-up, due to Church traffic, and people finally stirring out of their stupors and running errands. This shitty "yard sales" were everywhere, selling "OPJ" (other peoples' junk), and some people "live for this shit in the Spring and Summer months. Particularly that dump of an area called Rinely (PA), where 95% of the houses have priced garbage, and Rt 24 is so clogged with double-parking, it's impossible to get through a 2-mile stretch in less than an hour. That comes later this month, and I dread it every year. About 15-16 years ago, a young boy was killed when he ran out between parked cars, was hit and sent flying 30ft into the air. Since, the PA State Police have cracked-down on the double-parking and pedestrian traffic, thankfully. IMO, it should be outlawed on that Rt 24 and moved to a visible side road, where it's safer for all concerned.
Being Father's Day, I made a nice, custom card for him in MS-Publisher – as I've done for all of Mom & Dad's special, customized cards for the past 15 years – and I believe we sold only 1 CuYd of mulch, all day. I recorded a new answering machine outgoing message (OGM) for our new "Summer Hours", beginning next Sunday, June 26th, and lasting through July and August. It was *dead*, otherwise. So I closed-down at 2pm, and Dad, Steffi & I left at 2. Losing money is no way to run any kind of a business, small or otherwise, IMO.
Here's reason #3 why I carry concealed (PA-CCW 1990) a Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP with 230gr Cor-Bon® HPs, with a Galco Dual 8-Round Mag Carrier on my belt, and 2 more at the office desk's drawer, plus plenty at home, all ready-to-go. End of so-called "nigga/white trash/wetback flash mob violence" problems, as soon as 8-10 of the subhumans are dead.
It was only Sunday afternoon, and I've already gathering my gear for my upcoming Saturday afternoon through Monday evening's trip to "The Cabin" on July 4th Holiday Weekend. Everything at "The Cabin" was ultra-clean, as I had left it on my last visit. I packed my VietNam US Army Surplus Duffel Bag full of three complete changes of clothes, "Jack Bauer" Satchel Bag full of all kinds of "survival necessities", 16" English Wellington Boots (snake boots and deer/wood tick protection), Hoppe's Premium Field Gun Cleaning Kit, 16" Bowie Knife, 12" LLBean Maine Insulated Hunting Boots (more deer/wood protection) plus just good sense in that rocky terrain, Tactical Range Vest, PVC "techno-crates" to carry it all in the Jeep, my Deputy Sheriff Badge & ID, which I always carry with me daily, my AR-10 .308cal (7.62 x 51mm NATO), with Leupold Gold Dot CQ/T Scope, my .308cal (7.62 x 51mm NATO) ammo, my Remy 11-87 Semi-Automatic 12ga Shotgun with an EoTech Red Dot Scope, plenty of ammo, my Beowulf .50cal with an EoTech Red Dot Scope, and plenty of ammo, 300gr .50cal rounds Full-Auto, Class III Bushmaster AR-15 .223 cal (5.56 x.45mm NATO) with a Trijicon Acog 4 x 32 Scope, and of course, Eagle Carrying Bags with pockets and compartments for all rifles & shotguns. I have specific Hoppe's Cleaning Kits and 8,500+ rounds "stockpiled" at "The Cabin", for all various calibers; just about more than enough, I figure. I was "truly itching" to get away for 2½ days from this York area and my business and just have some quiet time, alone. I'd turn down the AC to 61-63°F, an build a small-to-medium-sized fire to read and relax, while curled-up with another of the many books I hadn't yet read, but had "collected", over the past year. Less than 1 day to go, and counting. I'm excited about 1½ days off until July 4th Holiday Weekend, when I get 2 days off!
I laid down on the LR sofa or a short "nap" and woke-up 3hrs later. Felling better, I worked on vacuuming, doing some touch-up spackling, sanding and painting and folding laundry. I cleaned-out some drawers, cabinets, checked the 'fridge and pantry for my shopping list, and got 15 cotton shirts ready for the cleaners on Monday. I also fed and watered Murphy for the 3rd tie today – he gets fed 2x Monday thru Friday, but 3x on the weekends – and tried-out some new catfood with him, or which he went wild and scarfed it down. I'd bought 130 cans of assorted Fancy Feast®, but he's still liking that very much. I moved him away from the large can of Friskies® after Momma Kitty died a few months ago, since so much was leftover and had to be put down the garbage disposal.
I decided to watch Food Network CATV's new "Food Network Star" show, and it was absolute dogshit. 15-20 absolute, idiotic amateurs – who was the Food Network TV moron who came-up with this junk and interviewed these idiots– who can't cook their way out of wet paper bags, were pitted against each other, by a real all-star Food Network Panel, giving them 60secs to "present their food and story", all of whom were pathetic and tongue-tied and made no coherent sense, whatsoever. No more; I crossed this garbage show off of my list, for good.
I've decided to stay out of 2012 politics in this "Journal" – except down below in the section called, "Things Which Make Your Head Explode" – unless there's a Palin-Bachmann Ticket for 2012. None of the current liberal-GOPers or RINOs even have a snowball's chance against the hate-filled, racist, half-breed, muslim-piece-of-pigshit, ∅bummer & Co, IMO.
For the past 2-3 weeks, I haven't been feeling well at all, due to a recurring head cold and on setting ragweed allergies (I developed allergies at 50-55; never had them in my life before), which I can't seem to shake. Chills and fever at night, sneezing/coughing/runny sinuses etc, tired during the day, make me a real pain to be around anyone. So until this subsides and is over, I'm staying away from socializing with friends, employees, customer and my Parents. None of them need to catch this malady, if its contagious. Docs don't know, even after all the tests. I go for more next week and the week after.
I finished-up my Corporate Website work around 8pm, shut-down the AC to 77°F, and Murphy followed me upstairs to bed. 4:30am would come quickly and a new week would open us up to all-new work possibilities, in addition to the ones I already had scheduled for the next 4-5 weeks. I had lots of things to review with Alan early, so I wanted to get to work. I'd laid them out on the conference room table on Sunday, in case he arrived first. Sleep felt good.
Even waking-up at 5am when the alarm went-off, I found I was running late, due to not feeling 100%, but I got Murphy and myself squared-away with breakfast, and left for work 15 minutes late. Alan was working on the Golf Cart, since the nearby GFI outlet had quit working to charge it, he had to run an extension cord to another across the Main GH. I worked on and finished one medium and one large-sized landscape estimate, and emailed them back to Rich, to present, with his design/plans. Dad was off today, the landscape crew was out on a 2-day, landscape mega-maintenance job, so it was just Steffi, Kim and I to "hold down the fort". I worked on updating GC&N Forms, which both employees and customers use, re-arranging product shelves, fixing 3 rails on the split-rail fence along my northern property boundary and decided that I'd do a "massive Sweet Basil harvest" in GH-1 (plus take home some Catnip for Murphy), on Friday-Saturday, to take home for processing into Sweet Basil Pesto Sauce on Sunday and Monday, since I had both days off. That would give me plenty of time to process it, put it in small/medium/large containers in the garage's 10.8 CuFt top-loading freezer, and do the messy Cuisinart® Food Processor clean-up, which is the worst part of it all.
It was a very, very quiet Monday morning, with only 2 phone calls and no walk-in retail customers in the morning, so it afforded me plenty of time to get caught-up on paperwork and make phone calls to prospective clients. A few people came in with "aphid gall" problems on their tree and shrub leaves, which is purely cosmetic and won't harm the plant. There were a few people in looking at trees, to be Fall-planted, since we're again in "The Unending Drought From Hell", and they're on wells. The city water people have no problems in watering, but many homes and farms with wells, no matter how deep, are very low and some are running dry from the lack of meaningful rainfall.
I downloaded www.johnshelleysjournal.com's contents to a special folder on my condo computer's HD, to preserve it, and to work on various pages' files, without overriding or interfering with www.gdnctr.com's files, some of which are named the same HTML (gdnctr) as the xHTML-CSSv4 (journal) files. It was a l-o-n-g download; about 8½ hours, even on this ultra-fast CM line.
Today, PA House Bill 40, the NRA-backed "Castle Doctrine" legislation, passed in the PA State Senate by a 45 to 5 vote. This bill will now go to Governor Tom Corbett for his consideration. Introduced by state Representative Scott Perry (R-92), HB 40 would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their home and any place outside of their home where they have a legal right to be. If enacted into law, it would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attackers family, when force or deadly force, is used. The companion bill to HB 40, PA Senate Bill 273, was sponsored by Richard Alloway II (R-33). YEAH, it's about time! Sign it into law, Gov Corbett, as you promised when you were elected by me and millions of other Conservatives and Tea Partiers, dammit! It's all about OUR AND OUR FAMILIES' PROTECTION.
Working on both numerous Corporate & Journal Website Pages, I missed the "Iron Chef America" chefs (Morimoto v Virant in "Battle Pheasant") on Monday evening; no loss. I closed-down at 8:30pm and headed upstairs, with Murphy already waiting on the bed. The crew was to finish-up Monday's landscape maintenance project in nearby New Freedom (PA), so I didn't need to meet with Alan; just be there when they left at 7:20am, until Dad, Steffi & Kim showed-up.
I had 3 homes to visit on Tuesday, so I took care of Murphy's needs, made breakfast and hurried to work. All 3 homeowners had complained of their last Fall-planted Crap Myrtles "being dead" – but when I gave them my "secret rejuvenation technique" to use to revive their rootballs – they "magically came back to life" and are 4-5ft tall and beautiful, now. I know "my shit", so to speak. I began putting a list together of "replacements" needed by customers, some or many of which wouldn't be covered because of "Winter Damage", which isn't covered under my unique 5-year Warranty. The rest, we'll replace in late September or early October, when air and ground temps drop, and the Fall rains come. Right now, it's too hot and dry to do any replacements.
It was dead still outside all day, and I had no choice except to use the AC in my office. I had the two 6ft overhead ceiling fans running in the Retail Showroom, and that helped some out there to move some air. The crew got finished with the 2-day lscp maintenance job in New Freedom, and I billed it out immediately. I finally closed-down at 3:15 after a sub-contractor ran Kim and I all over the place looking at pants for one of his so-called "freelance jobs". I doubt he'll buy what he indicated his client wanted, as he's looking for cheap, and although a US Military Vet with a 25% Discount, he didn't seem all that sure about what his overall "plan" was. Who really knows?
Temps hit 86°F and with 97% humidity, the so-called "heat index" was 98°, most uncomfortable for everyone and it's only Tuesday. It's supposed to get worse later in the week. Thankfully, I have Sundays off now, and next July 4th Weekend, I'll have 2 days off, back-to-back! Almost normal.
I watched "Iron Chef America" (Flay vs. Murphy in "Battle Breakfast") an there were some very good ideas, for a change, for my detailed notes and future cheffing efforts for "brunch", not specifically breakfast. I called it a night at 8:15pm, and Murphy was already upstairs, waiting for me.
4:30am came too early, but Alan and I had a busy day visiting potential landscape site to do design and estimates, as did the crew have another landscape maintenance job, and I had to get in early to brief him and them. I took care of Murphy's water and food, made my breakfast and left early for work. I was inundated with plant lists from Rich, site visits, estimates needing revisions into phases, billing of just-completed jobs, and files needing to be readied for the next 3 days' large maintenance job. Plus, Alan and I headed to a couple of site visits to do some design work, and I also had those estimates to complete. I had a 7" stack of folders on my desk needing quick attention. I got 4 of them completed and emailed back to Rich for presentation, and have "cut" whole yard designs down to "prioritize" 1 phase at-a-time. Too damned much highly-detailed design work for him and way too much of my money paying him for work that'll never be done, IMO. Dad and Kim were off today, so I chained the front gate when Alan and I were out on the site visits. I need a day or two off, dammit! I closed-down at 2pm; I'd had enough for the day and wasn't feeling well at all. A "nap" on the LR couch would help.
On Sunday afternoon, I bought through Amazon.com, the Complete DVD Series – Seasons 1 & 2 – of "Jericho", the idiot-CBS-canceled series, and it arrived Wednesday. Better than "24" and better than "Justified", IMO. The typical liberal-demokkkRAT CBS assholes canceled it after 1½ seasons, because it was too realistic, when they had a real *hit* on their hands! I managed to watch Discs 1 & 2, with the first 8 episodes, and will continue watching all 24 episodes of The First Season and the 6 episodes of The Second Season, without commercial crap interruption (mercifully), for the rest of the week's evenings, and even through the weekend. I might even watch it all again, it's so good, plus it came with 2 "bonus CDs" and "extras". If you ever get the chance, BUY IT!
By 9:30pm, I still wasn't feeling very well – can't seem to get rid of this "flu-like feeling" in my bones and muscles – and decided to get some sleep. You guessed it: Murphy was already waiting upstairs. 5am would come quickly.
Up at 4:30am, I took care of Murphy, made breakfast and coffee and left for work to meet with Alan, about the 3-day landscape/ landscape maintenance job in the nearby large mortuary's Stewartstown (PA) & New Freedom (PA) two facilities. We'd be there until next Monday, late in the day to finish-up. I have a h-u-g-e pile of landscape estimates and LSCP estimate revisions to do, "courtesy" of Rich, and spent all day Thursday and Friday doing them, and either mailing them to the clients or emailing them back to Rich for re-presentation. By 2:30, I was burnt-out from working since 8am on a very large and complicated landscape estimate, so I decided to put-off the rest of them until Friday, when I hopefully felt a little better. Whatever "this bug" is, it isn't doing me any good at all and I'm keeping my distance from others until it's run its course and is finally gone from my system.
I closed down at 3:30pm on Thursday, since there was no retail traffic, I was sick of doing estimates and the landscape crew had returned from that massive maintenance job in Stewartstown, which'll continue with one man finishing the mulching through the end of tomorrow, and possibly even into Monday morning for a few hours. The rest of the crew can get a start on the New Freedom mortuary, as it's only a half-days work of mostly pruning and minor mulching.
Mom & Dad bought me a Slimmer® Digital Glass Scale at Boscov's, in The Galleria, to replace the 30-year old analog one I'd been using, and it's wonderful! I also watched Discs 3 & 4 (of 8 episodes) of "Jericho: The First Season" and was asleep by 9:30, pretty late by my recent standards. Again, 4:30am would come way too early, and I had to get through Friday and Saturday, to get Sunday off, sleep late and get caught-up on a whole list of chores and shopping.
muslim "Heritage" In America?
Ol' pigshit-for-no-brains, Barack Hussein ∅bummer, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that islam has always been a part of America's story." Say what, ∅bummer?
First, let's get this straight: islam is NOT A RELIGION; IT IS A POLITICAL SYSTEM OF TOTAL AND ABSOLUTE CONTROL over its mindless adherents.
Really? Were those muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians. Were those muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving Day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
Can you show me one muslim signature on the United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn't think so, Mr. ∅bummer. There were 55 writers of the US Constitution and they consisted of: 26 Episcopalian Christians, 11 Presbyterian Christians, 7 Congregationalist Christians, 2 Lutheran Christians, 2 Dutch Reformed Christians, 2 Methodist Christians, 2 Quaker Christians, 2 Roman Catholics Christians and 1 Deist Christian.
Did muslims fight for this country's freedom from England? Nope; not a single one.
Did muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half brother, a devout muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though muslims of Arabic descent refer to "black muslims" as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. ∅bummer?
Where were muslims during the Civil Rights Era of this country? Not present. There are no pictures or media accounts of muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King Jr, or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
Where were muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or 'burka', or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they, ∅bummer?islam is a political system, with its own 6th century barbaric laws, controlling every aspect of a mindless muslim follower's pathetic life – from when to eat and drink, when to shit, what hand to use to wipe their asses, when to fart, when to rape, when to kill their own mindless adherents and Civilized Western Infidels, how to hate and murder, how to dress like a woman, how to fight like a girl, how many pre-teen boys to bugger, how many times to pray to the asshole moon-god allah and pigshit child molester mo-ham-head, – that all 1.2 billion of them richly-deserve *complete and total eradication from this earth*, IMO.
Where were muslims during World War II? They were aligned directly with Adolf Hitler, and the Nazis. The muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.
Finally, Mr. ∅bummer, where were muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East. No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the muslim world celebrating the 9-11 attacks on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day. Strangely, the very "moderate" muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th, were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.
And THAT, Mr. ∅bummer, is the "rich heritage" muslims have here in America.
And now we can add November 5th, 2009: the slaughter of 13 American dead and wounding of 29 other American Soldiers at Fort Hood by a muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist, and who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The "heritage" of any and all subhuman muslim slime, garbage and scum in America is that of wanton destruction, murder and death. From 9-11 to so-called "honor killings", to massacres on US Army Bases and the many plots to blow-up people, places and things, the subhuman muslim filth are indeed, "The Enemy Within Our Gates".
The real enemy is islam, not just "radicalized muslims", Rep Peter King (R-NY). Wake-up America and smell the islamic stench surrounding us all!
Slaughtering people for burning a piece-of-pigshit book, the koran – I wipe a dead pig's ass with it – is your "heritage", you racist, dumbfucking, hate-America, piece-of-pigshit, stinking ∅bummer asshole.
Riots, death, destruction, from the pigshit-eating muslim filth.I wipe a dead pig's asshole with the koran and all of the muslim garbage called islam.
Your subhuman muslim friends in Af-crap-istan sure love you, ∅bummer!
That finally, Mr. ∅bummer is the "muslim heritage" in America. All muslims and everything islamic should be totally-outlawed in America, and their very existence should be made punishable by summary execution, IMO.
Obama, your buddy Osama is DEAD, you cowardly, lying islamic muslim pigshit filth scumbag! Lonely now, are you muslim asshole garbage?
Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were and still are, all murderous muslim garbage, richly-deserving of summary death. ∅bummer, your "muslim heritage" is piracy and slavery, plain and simple, going back hundreds of years and continuing today. muslim trash are the biggest purveyors of slavery in the world today.
The goat turd mo-Ham-head + allah-the-pig = Satan! mohammed was an apostate of Hell.
Any questions, you half-breed, sambo, lowlife scumbag, stinking ∅bummer asshole? Thought not.
Things Which Make Your Head Explode
Don't the stupid, lowlife sambos and illegal wetbacks know that *abortion is genocide* in their communities, brought about by the degenerate murderers in the Roe v Wade, liberal-demokkkRATic party? Apparently, they're not smart enough to understand it and are swayed by lib-dem abortionists, who had the billboards taken down. Dumb, ignorant assholes, all of them.
Turd burgers, from human waste? NO THANKS, Japs! You eat 'em!
"Lemonade Stands" are now getting a $500 fine? Nice going, Montgomery (MD) official assholes! Stupid, money-grubbing, anti-small business, liberal-demokkkRAT douchebags! I made money at my lemonade stands in the mid-50s.
Ever what would happen during and after an EMP strike on the US, by another nation?
The chief law enforcement officers of several Texas counties along the southern US border warn that Arabic-speaking individuals are learning Spanish and integrating into Mexican culture before paying smugglers to sneak them into the United States. The Texas Sheriffs' Border Coalition believes those individuals are likely terrorists and that drug cartels and some members of the Mexican military are helping them get across the border.
Could Big Dyke-Dog, fat, bloated, piece-of-traitorous-shit Napolitano, really be this clueless? Even in Egypt they screen Muslims. Homeland Security Secretary Janet "Bull Dyke" Napolitano told reporters today that concentrating terrorist screening efforts on Muslim men under age 35 is "not good logic". Listen and weep for your country.
∅bummer's list of achievements and "historic firsts".
Loser, GOPer, RINO-liberals like Huntsman and Romney, have ZERO chance at The US Presidency. Don't waste our time or money, you two assholes! Neither does the flip-flop Gov Perry (RINO-TX) of Texas; he's a pathetic, lowlife loser, too, with absolutely NO CHANCE.
My ONLY Presidential Ticket for 2012 is Palin-Bachmann, both Conservative Women who KNOW what America NEEDS, and quickly!
We need to be killing criminal wetbacks by the tens-of-thousands, not just wounding one here and there, IMO.
"New claims for unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week, a government report showed on Thursday, suggesting little improvement in the labor market this month after employment stumbled in May." Note that everything the DC-asshole-scum release, contains "unexpected".
Some People Just Need Killing
This .45cal 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: murderous subhuman filth is still societal trash and garbage and needs to be "disposed of", promptly – 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".
Line-up all the New Black Panthers against a wall and kill them all. They're subhuman, nigga sambo, murderous, racist filth and need summary killing, IMO.
Just one more reason to summarily-execute violent offenders, rather than parole them. Fuck you, whining, pissing-in-your-pants, liberal-demokkkRAT ACLU commies! They CAN'T be rehabilitated; they need to die and rid society of their endless, murderous harm to innocents, particularly the helpless children and elderly. KILL THEM!
WRONG, disgraced, fired SECDEF BOBBY "ASSHOLE LIAR" GATES! American does NOT talk or negotiate with murderous subhuman muslim pigfilth: WE KILL THEM and rid the earth of every one, until they are all dead, all 1.2 billion of them, you dumb, ignorant asshole! Go fuck the muslim, islamic ∅bummer scumbag!
Stand this commie, hate-America, hate-Whitey, racist sambo nigga Van Jones against a wall, and execute him!
"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn died in a car crash in Pennsylvania early this morning. Good riddance and rot in hell, talentless asshole!
"Flash Mob Violence on the rise in America"? Mostly black youth scum? Bring 'em on! I'll kill every one of the subhuman white trash/nigga/wetback filth who enters my GC&N Complex Store to try to rob it! My Kimber .45cal and 3 extra mags, plus a loaded semi-auto shotgun (Remy 11-87) will make a very bloody mess, but I will kill each one I shoot. That'll end it quickly; tag 'em and bag 'em, Mr Coroner. End of problem.
