there's a radio program on the weekend, in which couples come on, tell the host how they struggled to become debt free, and then scream, "We're debt free!" to the listening audience. I usually listen when I'm out on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, in the car, doing whatever. Those are some happy people, I'm thinking, who have great and profitable futures ahead of them.
Not owing anyone anything, is a wonderful feeling. My business is solvent and so is my personal life. No mortgages, no loans, no credit card debt; and I mean to keep it that way.
It is tempting, sometimes, to go into debt in my business, to buy new equipment, trucks, buildings, greenhouses, but I refuse to do it. I run into many other small business owners who are in debt up to their eyeballs, and have to dance to a bank or credit card company's tune. They bust their butts everyday, to make massive debt service payments, with outrageous interest charges and have virtually nothing to show for it, at the end of the day.
Not me. I follow my own drummer; always have.
If you owe a bank or credit card company money, they will pull your strings with payments, due dates, interest, late penalties etc. If the US Government nationalizes those banks and their affiliated credit card companies, then the US Government will pull your strings, as will their banks and credit card companies. They can also call-in your loans and debts, and if you can't pay-off your debt, take everything you own in re-payment for it. The US Government will use the dreaded and ruthless IRS to completely destroy you, whereas mere banks will just file court liens against you, which you may appeal and work-out equitable payments, usually in your favor. Credit card companies can only damage your credit history; they can't legally hurt you with lawsuits and liens. But the US Government's IRS can and will take everything you have and put you into prison. There is no appeal with them. They are "the final authority" on all matters on their desks.
That's why back in November 2008, I paid-off the last remaining credit card debt, personally and for my business. I'm free-and-clear of everyone now. And it feels great. My mortgage? Never had one; I paid cash for all of my homes, since I first bought one back in 1976. Other loans or debts? Never had those, either. Mom & Dad never went into debt for such things as cars, appliances, furniture; they always paid cash, and I learned "their lesson": make do with what you have until you save-up enough to pay cash for it. Homes, college educations are the exceptions.
Over the years, without a mortgage and crippling credit card payments, I've been fortunate enough to invest in my IRA or bank the money I've made, and use it to pay for what things I do need. I've also lent my company money, when needed in tough times, and have neither charged interest nor repaid myself. Going into debt for almost anything — a home mortgage or college loan are the only exceptions — is downright stupid, IMO. It's especially a dumb move for vehicles. But 87% of all Americans look at it as a "Constitutionally-God-Given-Right", and that's just plain idiotic.
With the economy in such bad shape, I don't want to be owing anything to anyone, if when the dollar crashes. I want to be 100% solvent and be invested in "things of value". And I think you know to "what" I'm referring.
Around The Garden Center.®
With temps in the low-60s on Friday, it sure seemed like "faux-Spring" had arrived. Rather, it was just a "burp" in the month's weather. There's still some rough weather coming our way, and to be optimistic about a few days of sunshine and warmth, is just wishful thinking. Old Mother Nature's fooled us before with heavy snow and ice storms. We are, however in a drought with less than 10" of precipitation for this Winter, and the forecast is not good for more, at this point. Personally, I'd rather have the rainfall at this point, as I think we're going to be back in a drought cycle, for the Spring months. And that always means a lot of plant death during the most critical time when they break dormancy and push out new growth. I'm already seeing it on my 20-acre property, with visible mortality and several long term specimens beginning to "brown-off". For a lot of plants, it's already too late, even if the Spring rains do arrive.
It was a balmy 68°F driving to work on Saturday morning, and by 3:15 on the way home, it hit 75°F, tying an old record. I didn't have any paperwork to do, so i swept-out the showroom in the Main Building, hauled all the brush floor mats outside and flushed them well with a high-powered stream from a hose from inside the Main GH, and swept some more. I was dripping with sweat from the work and humidity. So after getting home, I turned-on the AC (in March!) and watched another 5-6 episodes of "Jericho" on Saturday late-afternoon/evening, until 12:30am, and called it a day. Losing an hour of sleep to DST didn't help either.
I slept-in late on Sunday, and headed-out to get some food shopping done — yes, I paid the young checkout-girl the 6¢ I borrowed last Sunday when their computers went down and everyone had to use cash or check, and I was 6¢ short, she loaned it to me — at Weis Markets, went back down to the GC&N to re-wash the floor mats, went to Home Depot to get some additional commercial brush mats, stopped at the DIY car wash, to clean-up the Jeep, and gassed-up for the week at Rutter's, where my company has its corporate fleet account. All-in-all, a lot of driving around. A *Wind Advisory* was posted on TWC around 4pm, for 45-50mph winds as a new cold front moves through, on Monday.
I hate driving to work in the dark. Right now, I'm leaving around 8:45am to get open by 10am, and it's light outside. In another week, I'll be leaving around 7am, and it'll still be dark, and not getting light until 7:20am. And a few weeks after that, I'll be leaving for work at 5:45am, and it won't get light until 6:20am, when my staff and crews report for work, around 7am. Hells bells, I've been doing this for 19yrs, and I should be used to it by now, but I'm not. Pretty soon, I'll be back to the 7-days-a-week routine, with zero time-off. (((sigh))) In this economy, I have zero choice in that decision to cater to my many, many thousands of customers' wishes, that I be open for their convenience and shopping. And I shall.
Monday was busy: I had 7+ couples/customers visit, 20+ phone calls, and 3 other "follow-ups" from last Friday and Saturday, to work on data for varying installation & landscape estimates. I also re-re-washed/hosed-off the Main Building's floor mats, sweeping and cleaning the Front Counter Retail area. Jennifer was in to work on inventory, Seth stopped-by to check-on Hardscape Jobs and our "start date" — Mon, March 16th — and upcoming Key Staff Mtgs, took some new customers on a "tour of the place" and gave one of them an American Elm (Ulmus Americana) for their 5-acre Ohio property, took delivery of the Carruth Studio's "Garden Smile" Garden Art, for installation at our entrance. I closed down and left at 4:15pm. I usually watch Glenn Beck on Fox News at 5pm, listen to Michael Savage at 6pm, and watch "24" on Fox-CATV at 8pm, on Mondays.
Wowzer! The DJIA was up almost 380pts (actually 379.44pts/5.8%) on Tuesday, and although it looked great, the brokers wet themselves, TV talking heads lauded the Porkulus Spending Bill, its "rally" actually means very little in the medium and long runs. But, hey: it sure looked good!
Storms blew through the area on Tuesday, delivering zero rain, the calls for mulch, plant material, LSCP maintenance, site visit evaluations, transplant work etc are coming-in faster and faster, every day. I keep reminding people that there's still frost in the ground, that it's only March 13th, and that "Mother Nature" isn't finished with us yet, and might "nail" us one more time, just to show us who's really in charge. Hey, it's happened many, many times before. I speak as a veteran who's been "nailed" too many times to count, over my 19 years in this business. Ummm, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota are getting theirs, right now. After work, I continued watching "Jericho" in the evening, finding a few new episodes from Season #1, and after searching for almost 2 weeks, I've finally found Season #2. IMO, it's one of the best TV shows ever developed, thus far. Seen it? Try it; you'll like it.
Because I'm going to have to start getting-up at 6am to be into work by 8am, starting next Monday when everyone reports for work, I did so on Thursday and will continue getting-up at "O-Dark-Thirty". Man, it sucks. Sleeping until 8am was soooooo nice, these past few months. I'll keep sleeping-in on Sundays, for the next few weeks, until *Open House Weekend*, when we'll again begin opening 7-days-a-week. Mt two condo cats get up with me, eat, and go right back to sleep; lucky dogs.
Locally, maples are beginning to "leaf-out" since their sap's been running for the past 2-3 weeks. Flowering cherries and pears are about ready to "break bud", due to the warm weather we've had. And customers are calling for mulch deliveries, and chomping-at-the-bit to get outside in the dirt. If we get hit with another cold period, frost or snowfall, there's going to be some serious plant damage. Buds are swelling on a lot of plants, now that the nighttime temps are pretty much above the freezing temps which we've had for the past few months. Looking at the 15-day forecast, I'm not seeing ant weather problems — snow, ice, blizzards — except light rainfall, which poses any problems. Maybe Winter is really "over"?
Things Which Make Your Head Explode.™
In many states, a private or public sector worker has to pass a *urine test*, to determine whether s/he's been drinking or doing drugs within a few days of that test. Their job often depends upon it. And a portion of that tested worker's paycheck goes to pay for "unearned benefits" for the millions of welfare scumbag filth, who sit at home, smoking crack, snorting coke, smoking pot and not bothering to even look for a job. My question is this: why doesn't that MF-ing welfare POS (piece-of-shit) have to undergo a *urine test*, to prove that they're not subhuman filth dopers, and worthy of my tax dollars being stolen out of my weekly paycheck, without my expressed permission? C'mon, you lying dirtbag pols: answer me that one question! Awwww, you can't? Or won't? Which is it, you stinking assholes! Never mind scu8mbags; we already know *why* you won't answer!
A "spending bill" with 1,122 pages of $410 billion of 7,991 pet projects ("earmarks") totaling $5.5 billion, just makes me want to grab a roll of duct tape before my head explodes. Ack! My eyes are squirting blood! 97% of the crap in that bill is a criminal waste of our hard-earned dollars! And it's never going to stop, unless all of those 435 assholes are voted out of office, and replaced by 1-term Citizen Legislators, NOT "professional politicians"! Dammit!
None of the MSM even mentioned that Chinese peanuts were infected with deadly salmonella bacteria back in the 1996 PCA (Peanut Corp of America) outbreak which killed dozens and sickened thousands across the country. And that hardly any Georgia peanuts were even used by that shit-hole company, PCA. It was almost all Chink-crap. Not one corrupt MSM mentioned it! What were they hiding? Some so-called blogs are now talking about it, but it was known back in 2006, and it was covered-up. WHY? Politics and money, that's why.
Watch this dumb-assed shithead Obama try to give a talk without his teleprompter; he's totally fucking inept and clueless without a script. Hey, sambo: you're vermin and you suck!
Lowlife, liberal-demokkkRAT Trash.®
YES, I want shit-for-brains, lowlife dirtbag, socialist, Marxist, racist, hate-America, hate-Whitey, liberal-demokkkRAT, "can't talk coherently without a teleprompter", Present Barry Hussein Obama-Osama-Lama-Rama-Ding-Dong (Nigga-IL)TO FAIL AND FAIL MISERABLY, dammit! We can fix any mess that Sambo & Co makes. And we will, in 2010 and 2012. Count on it, liberal-demokkkRAT assholes!
Corrupt, liar, bloated scumbag, tax-cheat, liar, racist, subhuman communist-sympathizer, fat, hate-Whitey, hate-America, hate-Israel, socialist, liar, bigot, US Rep Charlie "Mind Your Own God-dammed Business!" Rangel (Nigga-NY) tells America to shut-up and "fuck off"! Hey, Charlie: you need due-charging, summary public trial, conviction and execution, IMO! I'd volunteer for their firing squads, you pig-f•cking, pieces-of-commie-shit!
RIP, Michael Anthony Jones.
On March 18, 2007, loving son of Gary Jones and a good American man, Michael Anthony Jones, 24, was brutally-murdered in Grandview Missouri, by a subhuman, piece-of-shit, illegal alien filth, lowlife, dirtbag scum-sucking, piece-of-shit, from the stinking, turd-world hellhole of El Salvador. Gary Jones, Michael's grieving father, misses him terribly. On Thursday, February 21, 2008, the murderous, criminal illegal-alien filth Eli N. Sontay, pleaded guilty to 2nd degree murder, armed criminal action and was sentenced to 20 years in prison, after which he will be deported back to shithole El Salvador.
So US Taxpayers have had to foot-the-bill for this subhuman filth's imprisonment? One year costs roughly $40,000 of your and my hard-earned tax dollars, Fellow American Taxpayers. The Sontay garbage needs summary trial and a .45cal round in his murderous criminal head, dammit! Hopefully, the Sontay trash will be raped/beaten/tortured and murdered in prison, and then thrown into a filthy dumpster out back of the prison, where the subhuman garbage belongs. RIP, Michael Anthony Jones.
Michael, your father misses you terribly and grieves for you, everyday. May you find peace, rest and eternal life in God's Kingdom of Heaven, with Jesus as your Lord and Master.
†††RIP, Michael Anthony Jones.†††
islam Is A Criminal Organization™.
Soooo, muslim-islamist-arab bitches are spewing hate, violence and death threats, at a UK pig-f•cking mosque? Deport the stinking muzzie-bitches! No; better yet, KILL THEM ALL! End of problem, IMO.
The following 6 videos are "must sees", IMO, if you want to understand what the murderous, subhuman threat, called islam, is all about. The 6-video "Undercover Mosque" video series, reveals the subhuman, murderous, dirtbag Saudi Wahhabi influence overtaking the UK, and that is well on its way here in America, in our religious establishment and especially at our colleges and universities. This undercover documentary, produced by Britain's Channel 4, is excellent at showing the deception practiced. The MSA — muslim Student Association — is a terrorist group, and all of its members should be lined-up against a wall, and shot/killed, IMO. This is why DAFKA chapters will be calling for divestment from Saudi funding at American college campuses. Of particular note, is the quote from a lying scumbag, lowlife dirtbag Saudi pigfucker, that "the Saudi government does not fund terrorists", when in fact they are the biggest donors to pigshit-eaters, Hamas Filth Garbage. Kill all of the Hamas trash!
Watch this video series, in full:
This 6-part series should awaken you to "The Enemy Within"; murderous, subhuman muslim-islamist-arab filth, who are lobbying for "protected religious minority" status, with the liberal-demokkkRATs. Once that happens, as with Canada and the UK, any derogatory statement will mean serious jail/prison time for the speaker of that truth, even from the Bible. Our US Constitution's First Amendment is effective trashed, as a result. If B. Hussein Obama-Osama-Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong is elected POTUS, it will happen and he will gladly accommodate his fellow murderous, subhuman al Queerda muslim-islamic-arab filth; count on it!
This horror is ongoing in Europe and Canada. And it is also underway here in America, led by the lowlife, subhuman, terrorist-supporting filth at CAiR. Other than deporting the murderous al Queerda muslim-islamist-arabs, which merely shifts the burden of terror to others, the solution is to duly-charge, try, convict, sentence and execute all of them, IMO. I'd have zero problem in doing that. Zero problem. Just make me "King For A Day", and that problem would disappear, along with hundreds of other "problems", which plague America. That's guaranteed!
This is so wrong: thinking that subhuman, murderous, al Queerda filth, is "rehabilitated" and can being released back into Iraqi society! They need summary killing, IMO, and complete and total "removal" from all societies worldwide, IMO. Zero recidivism! They will "pop-up" and begin killing, once again; count on it, dammit! KILL THEM, KILL THEM, KILL THEM ALL! No damned exceptions! I will be proven right, within >2 years, after we leave, and the al Queerda subhuman murderers resurface, once again, and start the killing all over again! I'll bet $1,000,000 that it happens in >2 years! Any takers?
Soooo, a pig-fucking, boy-buggering, al Queerda lowlife, subhuman dirtbag, muslim-islamist dog-fucking senior Saudi "cleric", Saleh al-Luhaidan, chief justice of the supreme judicial council, the highest judicial authority in the ultra-conservative shithole, Saudi kingdom, has issued a religious decree, saying the owners of television networks broadcasting "depravation and debauchery" may be killed. I say, "Invade that stinking Saudi hellhole, kill all their leaders, and convert them to Christianity" (Ann Coulter's quote, BTW); if those scum won't convert, KILL THEM! I agree 101%, Ann baby! Subhuman muslim-islamist garbage need wholesale killing/slaughter, worldwide, IMO. They are the cause of horror, terror, destruction & death on a scale, worldwide, since the 7th Century, which has murdered more innocent people, than all of communism, nazism, socialism, Marxism, Stalinism, Leninism, Maoism, and all world wars, combined. Fact. The liberal-demokkkRAT assholes call that "population control", BTW. Funny stuff, huh?
The pig-fucking, cowardly, muslim-islamist , subhuman slimeball of al Queerda, did another slaughter of innocents, in Paki-land, at the Marriott Hotel. Track-down the al Queerda subhumans, and KILL THEM ALL!
Find and summarily-kill, pigfucker, double-agent, American traitor al Queerda "member" Adam Gadahn, as soon as possible. I'll personally-add $1,500 to the bounty for that subhuman white-trash filth/garbage! KILL HIM! Don't you al Queerda scum understand that he's a ***DOUBLE AGENT***, working for us and fucking you camel-humpers? Hahahahahaha! We're paying the little faggot! And he's giving-up your operatives, for killing? Think about it, morons. The only reason I say this is that I hate "double agents", and he's been screwing you turd-world lowlifes, for 3-4 months, ever since we "flipped-him", you idiots! Just ignore what I'm saying, and we'll keep discovering and killing your MF-ops! KEWL!
Almost a year after two teenage muslim girls were found dead and executed by their murderous, lowlife subhuman, muslim-islamist-arab pigfucker father and in the back seat of a taxicab in Texas, the FBI is saying for the first time that the case was have been an "(dis)honor killing", by subhuman garbage, lowlife, al Queerda dirtbag, pigf•cker muslim-islamist-arab-filth, who needs killing. Find him and kill him! He's subhuman pigshit! Find and kill all treasonous, subhuman, lowlife dirtbag, pigf•cking CAiR al Queerda garbage/shit/trash/scum/filth, IMO!
I have to laugh, shit and piss, when I read a pathetic article, like that PMS-NBC garbage, talking about muslim-islamists' "patriotism and heroism"! You make me PUKE, you subhuman filth and al Queerda garbage! The filth called islam, specifically muslims-islamists-arabs, are what is destroying the world, in a "pigshit al Queerda jihad", and all 1.2 billion of you, need killing, IMO! The earth needs cleansing of your lowlife forms! You're treasonous cowards, lowlife al Queerda dirtbags, liars, seditionists, scum, pigshit, garbage, trash, al Queerda junk and crap! Any f•cking questions, subhuman muslim-islamic-arab FILTHIES? Bring it, assholes!
Weddings between 5 & 6 year old boys and girls? Typical muslim-islamist garbage trash! F•CK iSLAM! Any questions?
A federal jury in Dallas has convicted a Richardson-based muslim charity and five former leaders on all 108 charges in a retrial of their terrorism financing case. The verdict came after eight days of deliberations in the retrial of the *un*-Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development — once the nation's largest Muslim charity and a banner government target of alleged terrorism fund raising on American soil. The shit-scum-filth, terrorist supporting al Queerda scumbags — *un*-Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development — was found guilty of giving more than $12 million to support the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which the US has designated as a terrorist organization in 1995 and made supporting the group illegal. Now, sentence and execute all of the subhuman muslim-islamist al Queerda garbage!
Oh gosh-oh-golly, just after the Indian Mumbai (Bombay) muslim-islamist-animal-Terrorist Attack Massacre of Thanksgiving 2008, the convicted muslim-islamist-terrorist supporters, subhuman, al Queerda lowlife, dirtbag filth from terrorist-supporting CAiR-animals, have finally "opined that all that islamofascist murdering & slaughtering, was a 'bad thing'; oh really, muslim-islamist-pigshit MF-ers?" Oh really? A truly "bad thing", you dumbassed, moronic asshole, muslim-animal al Queerda filth/garbage/shit/trash/crap/junk? ***Some People Just Need Killing™*** IMO!
Yes, 99.997% of all terrorists are subhuman al Queerda muslim-islamist-arabs, fronts and stooges for the lowlife dirtbags at CAiR, who need summary trial and execution, for their treason, sedition and conspiracy to overthrow the US Gov't, and to outright murder Christians and Jews, in the US and worldwide. fact. CAiR is a terrorist-supporting pile of al Queerda pigshit, and needs to be outright destroyed, IMO!
Not only do I HATE THE SUBHUMAN, PIGSHIT GARBAGE FILTH CALLED iSLAM, so do all Hindus, and for good reason.
No subhuman muslim filth/garbage/trash/scum/shit/junk should NOT be allowed near an airplane, US or otherwise, much less on one.
Awwwwww, the commie filth at the UN (Unnecessary Nations) don't want anyone criticizing the garbage, crap, junk, pigshit & piss that is *islam*? F•ck you, UN!
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), recently 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-Moronic-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. Stupid dumbassed idiot. Global warming is bullshit, you two-bit asshole! Crawl back inside of AlGoreBore's rectum, where you're warm-and-fuzzy-comfortable, dumbf•ck redneck asshole!
Cape Cod Gravestones.
Popular fiction has doomed the cemetery to a reputation as a creepy, dark place where evil things are bound to happen. But I suggest you leave the terrific tales to horror novelists and view graveyards with a different perspective. This site provides a fascinating place to start your peace-making journey with cemeteries. Attempting to document every pre-1860 gravestone in Cape Cod, Robert Paine Carlson has produced a site that brims with historical import. (Graphically, it's a train wreck, but that a whole other discussion) Begin your trip inside these rock-laden yards with the quick tour of gravestone styles from 1683 to 1799 and then wander over to look at styles from 1800 to 1900. After boning up on the basics, I recommend poking through his extensive catalogue of photos from a variety of Cape Cod's final resting places. Read the maudlin inscription on Rebekah Jenkins' headstone, marvel at the grandeur of Ebenezer Crocker's massive stone, or peep at the creepy skull adorning Job Avery's marker. In a time when anything over 25-years-old is considered to be of historical import, Carlson's dutiful work in documenting these true American relics should compel you to leave your fear at the cemetery gates.
