"Maybe Pain Will Teach You Millenials
Not To Vote For Your Own Serfdom"
feel the pain, idiots!
friday, november 15th, 2013
you Millenials voted for Obama by a margin of 28 percent, which will make it a lot easier for me to accept the benefits you will be paying for. We warned you that liberalism was a scam designed to take the fruits of your labor and transfer it to us, the older, established generation. Oh, and also to the couch-dwelling, Democrat-voting losers who live off of food stamps and order junk from QVC with their Obamaphones.
You didn't listen to us. Maybe you'll listen to pain.
I have been told that being hard on you Millennials will turn you against conservatism, that I should offer you a positive, hopeful message that avoids the touchy problem of your manifest stupidity.
No. There's no sugar-coating it – your votes for Democrats have ensured that you are the first generation in American history that will fail to exceed what their parents attained. Embracing liberalism was a stupid thing to do, done for the stupidest of reasons, and I will now let you subsidize my affluent lifestyle without a shred of guilt.Sadly, The United States of America has sold her national sovereignty for a nice landscape job.
I'm a 48 year old trial lawyer living on the coast in California – I should have “Hope and Change” tattooed on my glutes. Id have an excuse to be lib-curious, but you Millennials? Why do you support an ideology that pillages you to pay-off Democrat constituencies? Your time in the indoctrination factories of academia trained you in a form of “critical thinking” that is neither. Somehow, you came to embrace the bizarre notion that conservatives are psychotic Jesus freaks who want to Footloosisze America into a land of mandatory Sunday school and no dancing.
But liberals, in contrast, are nice. Obama is cool. You chose petty fascism with a smile. Not a lot of thought went into it. Facts, evidence – these were mere distractions from the feelings-based validation that came from rejecting us wicked conservatives.
What did you get? The chance to be forced to buy health insurance you don't want at inflated rates so my rates can be lower. You get to pay more out of your monthly barista take – liberalism ensured that the tanked job market foreclosed a real career – so that I get to pay less out of my lawyer checks. Thanks, suckers.
You fume that conservatives want to spy on you in your bedrooms. Leaving aside the fact that your tacky boudoir fumblings are the last thing conservatives care about, have you noticed how your precious Big Brother spies on your doings everywhere else? But who cares about that – Mumford & Sons totally digs Obama!
Don't even get me started on your crappy music.All liberals & most demokkkRATs think that life is just a sponge bath with a happy ending.
Enjoy your student loans, Millennials! We tried to tell you that it was a Democrat scam designed to subsidize liberal academia by allowing you to go into decades of crushing debt to pay for a bachelors in Ancient Guatemalan Gender Identity Issues.
Good plan. Now fetch my latte – I'm in a hurry to get to my corner office. And I'll leave you a tip – next time you decide to vote for a liberal, first be born in 1964.
Don't think that I'm happy about this. I came to Los Angeles after the Gulf War. I had a car and a few bucks I had saved in the desert which went right into paying for Loyola Law School. I had no contacts and no money, but I knew I had endless opportunity.
I worked hard. I could start a business. I could get credit. I could – and did – build my own future.
But can you? Liberalism, with its impoverishing redistribution, crippling regulations and the debt it suckered you into undertaking, has ensured that most of you can't.
You live with your parents, and Obamacare encourages sponging until you are 26 years old. At 26, I was leading Americans in a war, not begging mommy to pay my bills. The liberals want you to be eternal man-children, wearing cargo shorts and passively pumping money into their socialized medicine nightmare in return for “Brosurance” you don't want or need.If a lib-dem idiot fell into a pond, they'd be skimming stupid off the surface for a week.
It breaks my heart to see the young lawyers I hire hobbled by six figures of debt. But hey, your desperation works fine for us established folks. I got 297 applications for a junior associate position. Let me say that again – 297. Most of them weren't even practicing law – they were brewing coffee, not writing briefs. Now, I understand that most of you learned nothing but liberal clichés in college, but take a guess: As an employer, are the salaries I pay generally more or less when I have 297 people competing for each job?
So feel free to keep voting for the liberals who keep you in chains. I'll take my cheaper insurance, my future Social Security checks, and the other benefits that come from being established without guilt. The guys who you squander your votes upon certainly won't change that equation. You'll tread water in life, but hey, at least those evil Conservatives won't be in charge!
Thanks again, suckers. Now get off my lawn.

A Day In The Life
I slept-in until 5:30am on Friday, 33°F, splashed some cold water in my face to wake-up, still-groggy, I made French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee (from whole, freshly-ground Starbuck's® Dark French Roast Fresh Ground Beans) with my Chemex® Drip System, had some Del Monte® Mandarin Oranges, and an English Muffin with Raspberry Preserves. After checking the weather and news sites, scanning email, it looked like the next 4-5 days would be on the cold-side, with some snow possible in the middle/end of the week and even into the weekend. Swell. It was light by 6:15am, and up to 42°F, so I dressed in layers again, still wearing my Pendleton® Woolen Shirts, my Indiana Jones Fedora, and Fall Green Barn Coat, for now. The Winter garb – various multi-use Winter Coats and 2 ¾-length Winter Marlboro and USAF Parkas – are ready-to-go. I left at 9:15 for the East York Rite Aid Pharmacy, to pick-up a waiting Rx, and then over to Dad's, for a visit.
He was having some computer issues with the POS Mozilla "Firefox" (v25) – duplicate and triplicate porn sites installed – so I uninstalled all of them, ran a deep Windows Defender System
Saturday morning at 6am was the coldest yet, at 22°F outside, but with my Turkish Bathrobe and the heat cranked-up to 77°F, the Condo was toasty-warm in minutes. I made OJ, coffee, rye toast with Blueberry Preserves, checked the weather and news sites, scanned 88 emails (most of which went into the Junk Folder) – Dad's deep, full-system Windows Defender scan found zero – so that's a good sign. Firefox (Mozilla) used to be be very good, but it has become a lousy, bloated, error-laden browser, IMO,
That done, I headed over to Dad's and since his HP Laptop scan was negative, all was well. Penn State Football was on at 12, so he was planning on watching that all afternoon. I don't like any so-called "pro" or college sports; I enjoy F-1, Indy Cars or IMSA Endurance auto racing, when it's available. I wound-up helping Becky make a 2gal pot of PA Dutch Chicken Corn Soup; sautéed onions and chicken breasts, diced chicken, chopped celery, diced potatoes, sweet corn, chicken broth, quartered hard-boiled eggs, parsley, celery-heart tops, boil for 35mins and simmer for 2hrs, season to taste. I left for home at 11:45am, to On the morning's trip, I saw that gas/diesel prices at the pump, had dropped 6¢/gal, since Friday, November 1st: Unleaded Regular (87 oct) is now at $3.21/gal, Unleaded Premium (89oct) is at $3.31/gal, Premium (93 oct) is at $3.51/gal, with Diesel Fuel/Kerosene K-2 also falling to $3.81/gal, at most stations, in the York (PA) area. get some Condo projects done, and continue loading mags downstairs on my workbench. I listened to a streaming Vivaldi Concerto Festival all afternoon and evening, on WITF, until 9:30pm, edited my food shopping list for the 8:30am trip to Weis Market, and called it quits at 10pm.
Campared to yesterday, Sunday morning at 5am was a downright "balmy" 49°F outside. After turning-up the heat, donning my Turkish bathrobe, making OJ and coffee, I checked the weather and news sites, scanned email and had 2 English Muffins with Peach Preserves. I needed some food in my stomach since I was going food shopping this morning; if I shop on an empty stomach, I always wind-up
Becky gave me a ½-gal container of the PA Dutch Chicken Corn Soup;, and I had some with a grilled cheese sandwich, for lunch. Sherry's brother, Tim, called and stopped-by for over 2hrs, and we talked firearms and ammo all afternoon. Hopefully, before Winter sets-in, we'll get some shooting done at his farm. After Tim left, I went back to doing paperwork,
I slept-in until 6:30am on Monday, 33°F outside, and chilly inside at 68°F. It's soon time to ad-in the electric blanket to the 3 regulars already on the bed. Grabbing the bathrobe, I turned-up the heat to 77°F to take the chill off, made coffee and had some Del Monte® Red Grapefruit Sections. While scanning the weather and news sites, I checked email and remember that today was Veterans' Day: Happy Veterans' Day, aka Remberance Day; for the US, specifically. We no longer remember World War One, yet we still mourn the loss. Not much in the news about it; just a few badly-written stories about our Nation's Military Heroes, of which my Dad is one. I grabbed a shower, did laundry, changed the
On Tuesday morning at 2:45am, the violent stomach and abdomen pain woke me, and I had to get up. I couldn't lay down anymore because of the pressure in my adbomen. I was doubled-over in pain, taking a few aspirin, and working my way downstairs to turn-up the heat. I was fine when I went to sleep early last night, but don't ever remember this kind of pain before. I sipped some OJ, made some coffee,
I slept 10 hours straight thru, until 5am, and it felt like the fever and abdominal pains were finally gone. After a shower and fresh clothes, I decided to stay inside for the day, and rest. 14 MS-Updates/Patches came down the pipe, and installed/configured themselves. By 9am, it was only 31°F, and the Condo was warm and cozy, so I opted to stay-put. There really wasn't any reason to go out anywhere; any visits or errands could be done tomorrow or Friday. I'd rescheduled my plumber to next Tuesday, and my cleaning ladies will be in tomorrow morning at 8:30. I listened to the morning's Chris Plante Show on WMAL, from 9-12, Rush from 12-3, and worked on writing-out checks (yes, I still do that) for upcoming bills, doing paperwork and filing. Temps had dropped to 27°F by 5:30pm. I grabbed a short nap on the LR couch, and caught the usual Mark Levin Show, from 6-9pm. I was nodding-off before 9, but managed to finish-out the show. I was asleep by 9:15.
I had a good, solid 8 hours of sleep on Thursday, getting-up at 5am. It was a cold 24°F outside, so I cranked-up the Condo heat, grabbed my Turkish Bathrobe, made coffee, OJ, scanned the weather and news sites, checked the morning's few emails, but was still feeling groggy from the flu, or whatever it was on Tuesday & Wednesday. The cleaning ladies arrived at 8:45, and I left for Dad's. We put some very large, heavy pottery urns, pots and a Chiminea away in storeage, for the Winter, and I went with Becky to the West Manchester Mall to pick-up her new Gold iPhone 5s; she got it set-up and a thorough tutorial from Nichelle, the AT&T Corporate Store Manager. Nice unit; nice young lady. Highs hit 56°F today, and Becky and I stopped at Five Guys to get some dbl-cheeseburgers & Fries for lunch for her, Dad and me. I made it home about 2:30pm, went for a 2 hour walk around the neighborhood, and was back by dark, at 5pm. I spent 2½-hours looking thru the remaining HP Office Desktops with Win-7 Pro 64x, comparing specs and getting ready to order a "back-up unit". I listened to the Mark Levin Show, from 6-9pm, and called it a day at 10pm.
Tomorrow starts a new week here in the "Journal", and so far, my re-scheduled plumber is coming on Tuesday at 7am. I'm hoping Matt from Spartan Computers can come by and give me the 3-4 hours I need to get some serious computer work done, meet with my former realtor to sign the Letter of Intent Documents and perhaps meet with the prospective buyers at the GC&N Complex. I've decided to wait until late Spring to transplant the Azaleas etc shrubs at Sherry's, since we're so late into the year, right now, and the shrubs survival rate will be compromised, if we have a bad Winter. Who knows what else will pop-up during the week? It's always something.
You Own It, demokkkRATs!
Congratulations to the asswipe demokkkRATs, irrelevant "Free Shit!" minorities and stupid young people on the Truly-Shitty Economy you've created and inherited.

In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it becomes impossible to clean-up this mess that YOU voted for. Yes, moronic ∅bummer-asshole idiots: YOU!
Your TSHTF Survival
Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in 2014. Don't ask why; I just do.
First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,
Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.
I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?
Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of 1963, Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?
Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.
BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,
This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!
Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!
TSHTF this or next year, and members of the corrupt, criminal US Congress are helping racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "Fuck America!" Obama (SAMBO-IL), by either collaborating with him or cowering before him, on his You are going to see, in metro areas, the absolute worst in humanity, as the people that are most dependent upon a collectivist system, whether they're these Occupy Well Street people, or people who are loaded up with debt, they are totally unprepared for an economic reality where their paradigm does not function. As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. coming "Race War" plan.
We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.
I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?
Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!
Here's a very useful List of Barter Items, for when TSHTF. Get and stockpile those and more, if you know what's good for you and your family! Think I'm kidding? Better read this and think VERY carefully about it.

Don't let the possibility of DHS watching your every move deter you in preparing for TSHTF; do it regardless. Your and your Family's safety & survival always comes first. Beware of what your neighbors will do if you're prepared and they're not.
State and local resistance to the detention provisions contained in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) continues to grow, rapidly-emerging as a nationwide movement against the illegal and unconstitutional Federal Jack-Booted-Thugs' powers.
America is already being turned into a giant prison camp, and 90% of Americans either go along with it or don't see it happening. I do.
When prepping, always plan your survival purchases first on paper; buy them afterward.
Here's another good preparedness/precious metals website, 321 Gold. No, I don't believe in gold & silver, for what's coming. I believe in *lead & brass*/*food & water* for that situation; the other stuff comes much, much later.

"Last week, President Barack Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virginia. I'll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part:
"If you've got a business – you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012.
It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, "Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?" And to some extent, President Obama's statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response.
(Here's the video of that loony remark.)
However, he's not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he's talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business's success isn't purely that of its founder.
Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That's why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn't invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. "Somebody else" did indeed play a part in making that happen.
But what makes the president's remarks so inane is the totality of what he's saying. He's not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It's not a collaborative effort. It's all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president's mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me.
As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he's still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn't exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, "...you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," is just wrong. It's silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business.
Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don't), then they'll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It's a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs.
In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I'm over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn't a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn't really mean. He's a very smart man, and he meant what he said.
When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it's essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we learned that President Obama believes that entrepreneurs don't build businesses. Ultimately, they're irrelevant. Take that for what you will." ©Principles and Policy, July 14, 2012
Liberal Media BS
The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.
Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.
Think you can detect it? Take this test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out.
Some People Just Need Killing
It's not my intentions 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 one whit to me, at all — and rid American Society's innocents — especially our too-vulnerable, precious children and the frail, defenseless elderly — of the subhuman criminals who prey upon them, once-and-for-ever. 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. Someone needs to take out the trash! I volunteer.
Society's innocents — our precious, defenseless children and the frail, defenseless elderly — must be protected from predators, murderers, rapists, robbers and other subhuman filth, at all times and at any cost, IMO.
The 6th Commandment actually says: "Thou Shalt Not Murder". It does NOT say, "Thou Shalt Not Kill." I personally don't consider any summary-execution — except by subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic pigshit — as murder, in any way, shape or form. It's "Due-Justice-For-Crimes-On-This-Earth", IMO.
The Death Penalty is The Foundation of Government.
Yes, I agree with the premise of this article, that "the death penalty is a Noahic Covenant with God, in a post-flood world", and America should apply it every-damned-day, to those deserving death for their crimes against society and its innocents.
"100 years from now, I want the filthy, stinking subhuman islamic/muslim filth's childrens' childrens' childrens' children to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead because their legends tell of fire from the sky. I want them to hide in wet, dark caves and hellish-holes in the earth, shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters crawling over the earth, spitting-out death and destruction. I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with "If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you", and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obedience. I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea – the powerful Americans – destroyed their forefathers' wickedness."
Thanks for making my week, Texas, for executing Jamie Bruce McCoskey, 49!
KILL HIM! Ronald Phillips, 40, is due to be put to death Nov. 14 for the 1993 rape and beating death of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter, Sheila Marie Evans. KILL HIM!
Good riddance and rot in hell, Dennis "Cat Man" Avner!
Denver's illegal alien spic Juventino Hernandez-Vazquez, 36, needs summary-killing, after he crashed head-on into another vehicle, killing one person and critically injuring two others. KILL HIM!
Hopefully, someone in the prison GP will beat Weight-Loss Infomercial Pitch-Man Kevin Trudeau, 50, to death, in prison. He well deserves it.
