the America i miss
friday, october 29th, 2010
when American values and taditions really meant something to the Nation, as a whole. God, Country, Family, Liberty & Freedom, prosperity, manufacturing, imports on a scale never seen before and low unemployment; that was America of the 50s, 60s & 80s. Socialism/ fascism/ communisn/ One World Order weren't in our vocbulary. Boy & Girl Scouts organizations flourished without subhuman faggot and dyke filth, trying to infiltrate their organizations. Liberal pols getting away with crimes unheard of, and who should be receiving prison or execution for doing such crimes against America. The Country is awash in corruption, thievery and "earmarks", aka bribes. Small business corporations are going out of business left and right; the economy sucks. The US Constitution is being decimated, unravelled and trampled to a degree unparralled in the past 310 years. Rights guaranteed under The US Constitution are being challenged in US-liberal-dominated, activist courts and squashed. We were a Constitutional Republic; soon we'll become a chaotic, unruly democracy. There is a "difference".
For 60+ years, the communists/fasists/socialists have "patiently-waited for their "time" to take over ans destroy America from within, the "Shining Beacon On The Hill", and it is NOW! And they're doing it it through Øbummer & Co. Make no mistake about it, Fellow Real Americans! It's happening right in front of us. But fully 60-65% of the sub-moronic assholes are too preoccupied with "Dancing With The Stars" or "American Idol", to even notice that our Nation is being detroyed from within, by a foreign-born, Øbummer half-breed mulatto and other communinists!
When the f•ck are you going to wake-up, America? Do the Tea Partiers and 9-12'ers have to carry all your weight, too?
I. Just. Can't. Wait. For. It. To. All. Be. Over. On. November 3rd.
Around The Garden Center
My re-injured back and butt is slowly repairing itself from my Wedneday morning fall down the stairs, carrying an armload of shirts to go to the cleaners, and not holding on to the bannister railing. Silly me. The fall cost me two days out of work and a lot of pain. I went to the local Wellspan Wound Clinic, and the attending physicial patched me up. Nothing broken, but I'm in "recuperative mode", right now.
Friday was a slow day, as peoples' thoughts begin to turn to Winter, increased taxes on January 1st, rate caps coming-off all utilities after 10 years, and whatever else Harrisburg & Washington is going to pull on us. My company's (Sub-S Corp) taxes go from 36% to 52%, I get an 8% payroll tax increase, workmen's comp and unemployment insurance payments also rise, and my other insurance policies on the business will go up at least 10-12%, to pay for Øbummer & Co's unnecessary spending spree. If "Cap & Tax" goes into effect, that could finish me and tens-of-thousands of other small businesses off, as our overhead will far exceed our income. Can't do business in the "red ink". Already, I'm seeing a few dozen local businesses close-down. It's saddening.
Winter is fast approaching, and we're expecting frost any night, now. We have 2 landscape jobs and a 15-20 tree installations between now and November 3rd, but when I see snow in Denver, heading to Chicago, all nursery stock will quickly get put away in GHs 2-4, and we'll "work out of the GHs" as we need to pull and install nursery stock and or trees from the fields, until the ground freezes and we have to "call it a season".
Speaking of frost, we had 30°F tempature and a frost on Friday night/ Saturday morning. I'm now warning customers not to plant any more perennials because they won't "root-in"/ establish themselves so late in the year, and their Spring losses could be big. Shrubs and trees aren't a problem; it's the smaller things which will struggle through the Winter.
Saturday was a busy day, with a lot of plant material going out of the doors, and several new tree installations to get done before the snow and cold, aka Winter, arrive. We're emptying the retail area very quickly, but numerous customers have asked us to "Winter over" their Jap Maples and other special trees and shrubs, until Spring, in out GHs. The Burning Bushes (Euonymus alata compacta) have colored-up and we've sold every last one of them. I emailed Tim, one of my nursery stock brokers, about getting some 24-30" bare-root plants in to pot-up, so they'd be ready for sale in mid-Summer, and especially the Fall, when they turn "fire engine red". I'm waiting on his availability list.
Although my back and butt were hurting from the Wednesday morning fall on the condo stairs, I handled 8-9 customers, and then had to rest between each transaction and tree installation scheduling. I tried a cold-pak for almost 2hrs, but that didn't help, and neither did 324mg aspirin, my old painkiller standby, but neither of those helped very much. Leaning back in my plush leather chair in my office did, however.
I watched several horror movies on Saturday evening — "Jason Goes To Hell; The Final Friday" and "Constantine" — neither of which worth worth a flying shit, IMO. But nothing else on. So I switched back to my extensive library of DBR'd movie on my 1-Tb HD and watched "Sniper". It is Haloweem's "Fear Fest Week" on AMC, and I'm just not into that crap anymore.
Sunday was another high traffic day, in a short burst from 11am-2pm, but not many sales, since we're out of stock on so many items. Two weeks ago, I ordered-in 300 3" Clematis plugs and trellises, 300 bareroot daylilies of 3 varieties, and they're potted-up and growing nicely in GH1, and will be ready for Spring sales. It's 74°F today and feels like Summer, once again, but it won't last long. I laid-out the schedule for the next two weeks, prepared tomorrow's work order for Alan, my LSCP Foreman and his crew, and began putting a "Open House 2011 Marketing Plan" together. Since Easter comes on April 24th in 2011, and traditionally have our Open House on the Saturday after Easter, the 21st Open House will now be Saturday, April 30th. I closed down at 3:30pm and went home.
On Monday, I added new and various shrubs to several growers' list for Spring 2011, after noticing we had "gaping hole" in the current Retail Inventory, due to the Fall Sale. Kim cut back all perennials in GHs 2-3-4 and consolidated them way in the back of the massive 30ft wide x 100ft long x 14ft high, large Quonset-style Houses, to make room for the incoming nursery stock, which we hope to Winter-over in those 3 GHs, rather than use the 5 GHs, as we have in previous years. I worked on several landscape revisions, as people changed their minds and plant material, and adjusted the week's schedule to accomodate for the incoming rains.
Tuesday morning was dead, as far as retail traffic went. The guys did tree installations and deliveries, and I napped for an hour or so in my office's plush leather chair. Boring. So I made a couple of site visits, did some estimates and mailed them to those prospective customers who'd asked for them. With only 1 customer through for the entire day, I sent everyone home at 3:30om, and closed down. Wasting money on electricity and hourly labor rates was unthinkable. I decided to drive up to The Cabin for a while and relax, if it rained on Wednesday, and on my day off, Thursday.
It rained all Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, so I sent everyone home. We can't do tree installations with a 3½-ton JD SkidLoader and 1,000lb+ trees on peoples' lawns, or we'd destroy the grass, make deep ruts in the lawn, and have to come back and make repairs at our expense, besides making them angry. So at 8:30am, I called the two ladies with scheduled tree installs, and they were appreciative of my postponing it one to two days, until the ground dries-out. Our small landscape job on Friday postponed itself until next Spring, since she has old, dead trees leaning towards her house, and needs to get them taken down first. We'll Winter-over her large block of plant material until early April, in one of the GHs, and get it done in 2011. Things are rapidly coming to an end, with the exception of 2 landscape jobs next week, weather permitting, and a few minor tree installations.
I came home at 9:30am Wednesday, took a shower, fed Murphy, my remaining condo cat, and drove up to The Cabin for the next day and a half to get some real rest and "get away from it all around here". The Town Hall Mtg would be another story.
The “Virtual Cabin” – A Novella
I drove up to The Cabin after work on Friday to check on the Elms which Tim and I had planted on Wednesday & Thursday. I drove the Jeep around the meadow and re-checked the 3 at the front deck which the "Bigfoots" had uprooted. All were doing fine, had lost their butter-yellow Fall leaves and were nicely budded-up for Spring. Sgt Atler came up the driveway in a patcjed-up patrol car, and asked me how I was doing after shooting the "Bigfoots". He said that the sightings had stopped for now, but that many of the citizens of Adam's Junction were now either carrying concealed handguns or high-powered rifles in the cars and pick-ups, for fear of retribution from those creatures. He said that I had no legal problems from the incident, and that one of the wounded Deputies was already back at work, having been shot in the shoulder; a superficial flesh wound from the 3 guys I shot in the now-gone trailer. I was relieved.
On Tuesday, I closed-down early, drove-up to The Cabin, disarmed the building, and Jenny was happy to see me. I refilled her 3 bowls, and after eating, she waited for me to light a fire. I lit a small fire with split logs and she curled-up on her bearskin, near the hearth. Soon, she was snoring.
I poured a ¼ snifter of 50-year old Brandy, which I picked-up in Red Lion (PA) on my way up. I'd be coming back on Wednesday afternoon, since Thursday was my day off, and there was a Town Hall Meeting scheduld for 7:00pm, which I wanted to attend. I saw the signs posted on the telephone poles as I drove through Adam's Junction. I probably had some "explaining" to do to the residents about all the shootings at my 43-acre property, if the Sheriff or Deputies hadn't already done so. I lit my penultimate Cuban Cigar (don't ask) — I had 2 more boxes of 24 each on the way UPS to my business — and sat back in the overstuffed leather chair, to contemplate tomorrow's meeting with a realtor in York, who wants an exclusive listing to see my 20-acre Garden Center & Nursery Complex. I've known Terry for many years and he's a trustworthy soul and an honest businesman, with a solid reputation in the York area. I closed my eyes and relaxed. I dreamt of retiring, buyiong a 1-floor condo with a 2 car garage and full basement, a 2006 Ford GT and decompressing for a year, before starting a new "venture". I had enough money, so I wouldn't need any bank financing; I'd pay cash from my take of the gold ore and 365lbs of golf-ball sized nuggests I'd stashed, before the Mining Company and IRS got involved.
The, I wokeup with a jolt; someone was at the front door. I grabbed my Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP, chambered a round, clocked-off the safety and went to the heavy oak door, with my .45 in my right hand pointed right at the unknown's "center mass", and opened the door with my left. It was Sgt Atler and a Deputy who was wounded during the shoot-out several weeks ago, and I invited them both inide inside. I dropped the mag, unchambered the round, reloaded the mag, put it back into the .45, and clicked-on the ptimary safety.
The Deputy had come to thank me for saving he and his partmer's lives by taking out Tristan, Charlie & Seth Holtzapples in the trailer, or they'd both be dead, now. That'd be a real shame because each was young, had served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and had young wives and babies. I nodded my thank you. Sgt Clay had some more serious things to talk about. The Town Hall Mtg on Thursday had a petition circulating by the Holtzapples and Groves, to forcibly remove me from my property, or by it at rock-bottom price, if neessary. I was being termed a "community menace"? Me? Both Sgt Clay and his Deputy laughed, too. Everyone knew who the troublemakers were, but the "Bigfoot Incidents" seemed to have "stirred-up the pot", a bit. Some of the other residents had another petition to ask me to leave town, and let them return to their "peaceful ways", before I arrived. Hmmmmmm. It was a no brainer: a local district judge would summarily-dismiss the Holtzapple-Grove petition, but might consider the other petition, if enough evidence were presented. (9 dead "Bogfoots" was a lot of evidence). I needed to be forewarned and prepared, they said. The FBI and scientific community had all the carcasses we'd shot, but I was sure there were more in that labryinth of caves, just off my property. That was the problem: I'd shot one of them off of my property; the others I killed on my property, so "justified" was called for. It was just that one on Ed Dawson's farm, where the caves were, that was becoming a "problem" for me.
Sgt Clay handed me a thick manilla envelope of the CSI photos, for my lawyer, in case I needed to bring one along. The entire Dawson Family, who'd live 5 generations in Adam's Junction, had left town last week and were staying with relatives in the Scranton area, until the caves were thoroughly-searched and nop more creatores found. Neighbors, heavily-armed, were attending the Dawson's livestock, and already two cows had been killed and mutilated, which told me that there were more creatures inside. We'd deal with this at The Town Hall Mtg, on Thursday.
The fire died down, I refilled Jemmy's 3 bowls, armed the building and left for York, to confer with my personal & corporate attorney, Marc Robinson, ESQ, on Wednesday, after the day's meeting with Terry, the realtor. Instantly, I knew my priorities, and wished I hadn't set-up the realtor's meeting. Oh well. I was back in York quickly and called Marc at home and laid it out for him. I had a 1:00pm appointment.
I cancelled the realtor's appointment on Wedneday morning, due to heavy rain, sent everyone home, closed-down the GC&N Complex and went to my attorney's meeting at 1:00pm, then back home for some sleep. I woke-up at 4pm, grabbed my duffel bag and AR-10, and headed for The Cabin for 1½ days of R&R, get some good sleep to get "away from it all", and to attend the Town Hall Mtg on Thursday at 7pm. I disarmed the building, refilled Jenny's 3 bowls, and unpacked. I turned on the police scanner to hear what was happening. I'd turned-up the heat to 75°F, so in a few minutes it was warm inside and the chill was gone. I'd also closed the chimney flu damper to keep the warm air inside, and re-armed the building. I crawled into my queen-sized bed with fresh linens and down conforter, as the rain began to come down really hard. Jenny junped-up at the foot of the bed and curled-up to sleep.
I woke-up at 2:30pm on Thursday, opened the flu damper and lit a roaring fire with split logs, stored on the back porch. It was only 47°F and the rain continued, though not as hard. I was getting low on split wood and logs, and as soon as the rain lets-up, I'd have to lug more wood — both split wood and 3ft logs — from the shed on to the porch and tarp it for the coming Winter months. I made Eggs Benedict, oatmeal, OJ and coffee, since I hadn't eaten breakfast or lunch today. Jenny's 3 bowls were half-filled and she was okay, for now. I fed her a strip of Canadian Bacon, which she just inhaled. I settled-in in front of the massive fireplace in my chair, while Jenny curled-up on her bearskin rug. I began reading Glenn Beck's "Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth and Treasure", which I'd just bought at Border's Bookstore, last week.
Sgt Atler drove-up the 1,000ft crushed stone driveway, and knocked on ny door. He wanted to tell me what I was "in for" at the Adams' Junction Town Hall Mtg, tomorrow night. The Holtzapples and their relatives wanted me gone, no questions; so did the Grove, since I'd killed so many of them in self-defense. A Grand Jury and the DA's hearing would rule on that matter, but Sheriff Bunce, the CSI and FBI had no problem with what I did. It was "justified", as far as they were concerned.
95% of the Citizens of Adam's Junction were on my side: I'd cleaned-out the murderous Holtzapples amd Groves, cleared the area of "Bigfoots", so as far as we could ascertain without combing the vast cave complex thrououghly with hundreds of armed men, and brought peace and tranquility to Adam's Junction, once more. I left the meeting to cheers and applause, and went back to The Cabin, refilled Jenny's 3 bowls, started bringing-in armloads of wood to stack and tarp on the back porch, and plopped-down in my leather chair, exhausted. All I wanted was a "getaway" from my business and civilization, for a day or two a week. Instead, I got Vietnam+ all over again.
I packed-up my gear and the AR-10, which I thankfully didn't have to use on this trip, armed the building and headed back to York. I had some food shopping to do and wanted to get to sleep early, so I could be into work early on Friday to catch-up on Thursday's messages and projects. I was exhausted and it seemed like a longer drive than usual. I got the food shopping done, and made some notes to have the LSCP Crew "clean-up" my condo for the Winter, as they've done for the past 20+ years, so it'd look nice & tiday until Spring.
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. CO2 is a useful trace gas in the atmosphere, and the planet would actually benefit by having more, not less of it, because it is not a driver for Global Warming and would enrich our vegetation, yielding better crops to feed the expanding population. CO2 is not causing global warming, in fact, CO2 is lagging temperature change in all reliable datasets. The cart is not pulling the donkey. Wake-up, folks.
Here's a listing of The Best Global Warming Videos on the Internet.
Hey, fat, shit-for-brains, bloated, liar, huckster, fraud, criminal, charlatan, scumbag, loser, disgraced ex-VP AlGoreBore (LIAR-TN), is back using $300 million of OPM (Other Peoples' Money) to promote his Global Warming Bullshit, after the worst Winter in over 100 years. Welcome back, fatso huckster asswipe, AlGoreBore!
Roger Revelle of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Harvard University and University of California San Diego, spits on the lying scumbag, AlGoreBore. My, my, oh my. (((snicker))) No, there's no consensus on Glo-bullshit Warming, other than it's a LIE! Just ask Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT, Richard S. Lindzen; he's eminently-qualified to call AlGoreBoreAsshole, a LIAR! As I am.
There's another "ice age" coming, not the AlGoreBoreLiar 'Glo-bull warming' crap.
Larsen B Ice Shelf in Antarctica collapses in 2002 = Glo-bullshit Warming? Doubt it.
Read this Glo-bullshit Warming idiocy. Go ahead; I'll wait.
AlGoreBore's "hypocrisy"? See it right here!
You need to watch this 30 minute film; it's an eye-opener if you think that we're running out of crude oil, and that America has no reserves. We have more oil and natural gas in Alaska alone, than all the rest of the world's known reserves, COMBINED! Grab an adult beverage, and watch it.
Better get out your Winter coats, 'snuggies', wool socks and snow shovels, as it seems we've got an 80-year "Little Ice Age", on the way. Yawn; no biggie.
AlGoreBore's "Glo-bull Warming Bullshit" has spawned so-called 'cottage industries' around the world, worth hundreds of millions and probably billions of dollars, for green corporation validation, carbon credits, foundation & university climate studies, grants and a host of other BS-related crap to his lies and garbage. Global warming competes with cancer and competes with AIDS for a finite amount of money. This year's natural resurgence will surely see the global warmists, led by celebrity warmist, Gore, compete viscously for those US Taxpayers' hard-earned dollars. And I'm betting that the really important disease, cancer, loses to Glo-bullshit Warming and AIDS. Dammit.
F*ck all the "Glo-bullshit Warming Alarmists"! I say, FUCK-THEM-UP, and cleanse the planet, if they try to physically-intimidate and hurt anyone! I will; count on it! "Get in my face", assholes, and that'll be your last day on this Earth! If there are any "dissenting scientists" out there, who need protection, just get in-touch with me, and I'll guard you & yours. You can count upon that, folks!
Have you taken "The Global Warming Test"? If you have a sentient, functioning brain, and a simple knowledge of "the facts", you'll easily get a 10-of-10, as I did. Go ahead, and give it a try!
Read this article and pick-out "The WWF's Big Lie". If you chose this paragraph — "Summer sea ice is now forecasted to completely disappear in the summer months sometime between 2013 and 2040 — something which hasn't happened for over a million years." — you'd be right. There isn't, and never has been and ice on the earth dated at a million years old, and who the hell was around back then to begin recording it? The lying sacks-of-shit at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are typical lowlife, left-wing wacko scumbags, in-bed with the "Glo-Bull Warming" Crap, of asshole AlGoreBore and his phony, money-making scam. The oldest, and not reliably-dated ice cores are >160,000 years, and those are shaky in fact, at best. So where did the lying WWF pull the million year crap from? Their asses, of course!
Shit-for-brains, mentally-ill, fat, bloated liar, AlGoreBore's (LOWLIFE-TN) "ally", in NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by AlGoreBore's chief scientific ally/"asshole/butt-buddy"— Dr James "Moron-Cretin-Asshole" Hansen (DIRTBAG-NASA) — and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that "last month was the hottest October on record". Total, factual bullshit and lies. This was startling. Across the world there were reports of unseasonal snow and plummeting temperatures last month, from the American Great Plains to China, and from the Alps to New Zealand. China's official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its "worst snowstorm ever". In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years. So what explained the anomaly? GISS's computerized temperature maps seemed to show readings across a large part of Russia had been up to 10 degrees higher than normal. But when expert readers of the two leading warming-skeptic blogs, "Watts Up With That and Climate Audit", began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running. Read this article, and find out why both lying, corrupt, criminal, subhuman idiots, GoreBore & Hansen, should be stood against a wall, and shot, IMO. In fact, the pathetically-socialist, left-wing UK, has just begun to awaken to what the "Climate Change Bill" will do to destroy their nation, or what's left of it. IMO, it's probably too late now to save the UK, but at least some of the more Conservative people over there, will at least get the chance to flee to America (or elsewhere), before we also "go down the proverbial dumper", as they've done. Heh.
On Friday, January 2nd, I ran a fully-attributed story in my weekly "Journal", which had links to other stories and facts, thoroughly-debunking AlGoreBore's trillion dollar scam and fraud, Global Warming". The Daily Telegraph UK's columnist, Christopher Booker, was the erudite author, and here is the link to that story. Nice job, Mr Booker!
Now, lowlife shit-for-brains dirtbag, Arkansas Gov Mike "DumbAss Turd-Boy" Beebe (ASSHOLE-AR), said that global warming is serious problem, not a "hoax," and requires more than a state response. "I think it's a threat, and I think global warming is occurring," Beebe-The-Shithead said in response to a caller to his statewide radio program who said he believed the climate change crisis was a "hoax." Idiot. Stupid idiot. Global warming is bullshit, you two-bit asshole! Crawl back inside of AlGoreBore's rectum, dumbfuck!
And global cooling goes merrily along, without any help from us mere humans, as it has for millions and millions of years.
Another "lie/error" in the favor of Glo-BULL Warming's false bullshit and lies? Got duct tape?
Here's the truth: Lord Monckton of Brenchley's Science & Public Policy Institute.
The commie/fascist/socialist liberal-demokkkRAT filth in the US Congress, have refused to allow Lord Monckton to testify the truth, against con-man, liar, scumbag AlGoreBore's LIES! This is Commie Russia, NOT Free America!
Things Which Make Your Head Explode
I still find it hard to believe that shit-for-brains Al Franken is a US Senator. There are some real fucking stupid people in Minnesota.
The threat to our Nation's water supply is very, very real from the subhuman muslim extremists, and there's no way we can protect it from them. Be prepared to be scared when you watch the link at Fox News.
Why is it that you have to show an ID to buy cigarettes, buy or drink alcohol or see an x-rated movie, but over ½ of the states don't require a picture ID to vote?
By "Executive Order", Hussein Øbummer is allowing 80,000 more muslims to resettle in the US, next year. Good God, we should be deporting the subhuman filth here now!
Portland, Maine, weighs letting noncitizens vote?
Some People Just Need Killing
This will do it!.
Exactly why I carry concealed, a Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP and two extra magazines. Ever since shit-for-brain Bloomberg took over as mayor, crimes has rise almost 45% (FBI stats). Bloomberg is dogshit.
Put this subhuman, piece-of-pigshit muslim to death, for killing 13 US Soldiers at Ft Hood, dammit! There are dozens of witnesses and it was caught on film; use both as evidence. He deserves no "special treatment". He's a murderous jihadi! Get all subhuman muslim filth out of the US Military!
Thank you, Arizona, for making my week: Jeffrey Landrigan for a 1989 murder! Better late than never.
