in every real sense of the word, the American Public is hugely-deserving of the name, and has richly-earned every letter of it. Idiots, morons, cretins, dumbasses et al. We have deserved what we've gotten saddled with, after voting-in the same, criminal, corrupt US CongressCritters, over and over and over and over and over, again. The same sons-and-daughters-of-bitches, who've f•cked us 16-ways-to-Sunday, and we still bend-over and grab our ankles, with a smile. We have a *oligarchy* in-place and doing-just-fine-and-dandy, thankyouverymuch.
Welcome to The United Soviet States of America — The USSRA (United Socialist State Republic of America) — merely a semantic difference, but the end-result is the same. The US Congressional Oligarchy of America, succinctly-controls 100% of America, and this transformation of the US into a country where there is socialism for the rich, the well-connected and Wall Street (ie, where profits are privatized and losses are socialized) continues today with the nationalization of AIG.
As of today, September 19th, 2008, 56 of 100 criminal/corrupt US Senators, and an undisclosed number of the criminal/corrupt 435 US Representatives, have Goldman-Sachs stock in both Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac stocks. Unchecked liberal-demokkkRAT and unbridled, hypocrisy aka Sen Barney Frank, Sen Barack Obama, Sen Chris Dodd, and scores of other lowlife, subhuman dirtbags, have been "skimming millions/billions/trillions, from the top", while we, The American Taxpayer", have been getting f•cked, bigtime. No; it's time for payback!
Yes, this is the now time to try and catch a falling knife! Okay, here's what we do:
• Cut off all medical, educational, legal and housing benefits to illegal aliens immediately.
• Deport all illegal immigrants now in jail. $40,000/yr/prisoner is way too much to spend on "three hots & a cot", for those criminal filth, IMO. Either deport them or kill them, IMO.
• Arrest, indict and try (all) the CEOs and CFOs of (all) Wall Street firms (merely) suspected of financial misdeeds.
• Seize the assets of CEOs and CFOs when their chicanery is proven. They're all "guilty until proven innocent". Turn their billions of ill-gotten-gains, over to the American people, to lower our taxes.
• Fire Chris Cox, the do-nothing, lowlife dirtbag, head of the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission), for his gross criminal negligence in allowing Wall Street to rape and pillage the American Economy.
• Give Eliot "Sheriff of Wall St" Spitzer a full pardon/amnesty, for any and all the made-up, bullshit crimes he may have committed. This guy, sums it up, neatly.
• Replace Cox with Eliot "Sheriff of Wall St" Spitzer, who, before he was taken-down by the criminal Wall Street money changer cabal, was the only one going after the subhuman filth and rampant criminals on Wall Street.
• Stop the Federal Reserve from bailing-out multi-billion dollar companies, at the taxpayers' expense.
• Fire Ben "Shit-For-Brains" Bernanke, strip him of all assets, and make him work in fast-food joint, cleaning grease-traps with a Q-Tip®.
• Fire Hank "Hanky-Pank" Paulson, strip him of all assets, and make him work in Penn Station, cleaning toilets/urinals with a toothbrush.
• Arrest, try, convict & execute Alan "Senile Scumbag" Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve, for his role in ensuring that the era of cheap interest rates created a speculative "froth"; nay bubble, in the Financial Industry. He was very, very wrong. Greenspan & Greed are to blame "almost 100%" for this whole mess. Almost.
• Charge, try, convict & execute all guilty parties, for treason/sedition/sabotage against the USA, and bury their stinking carcasses in an unnamed field. Let the maggots "feast"! Hey, maggots gotta eat, too.
• Charge, arrest, try, convict & execute 85% of the corrupt, criminal US Congress, for abrogating their responsibilities to America, for "adjourning on vacation", until after the General Election, Nov 4th. WTF are they leaving all this mess to 'someone else", to solve? They don't want to deal with an "economic plan"? This is complete and total insanity, on that Pelosi-D'Aleandro bitch's part! Stand that filthy, stinking, corrupt, liberal-demokkkRAT bitch, against a wall!
Big headline: "Government plans bold financial rescue". Tiny sub-headline: "Bail-out price tag likely to reach a half-trillion dollars". (That's $500 Billion, BTW) Ooooops; now it's $700 Billion. Do you get it, now? It's ***our money***! They don't have any money; but, those criminals have full-control of *all our monies*, dammit! With no oversight, on our part! Who allowed this shit stuff that to happen, anyway? Here's a clue: liberal-demokkkRAT filth, such as Franklin Raines, Jim Johnson, Jamie Gorelick, Penny Pritzker, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank etc, are looting & robbing the taxed-to-death, American Taxpayer, and various corrupt, criminal, RINO-Republican-GOPers in the House and Senate, had been "tapped to drive the getaway car". And they did, bigtime. If you want me to "name GOP names", I can.
Did you know that we were a mere "500 trades away from Armageddon"? I blame Greenspan for it, 80%; Bernanke 5%; and "Plain Old Greed" 15%.
The Federal Reserve said Sunday it had granted a request by the country's last two major investment banks — Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley — to change their status to bank holding companies. The corrupt & criminal Wall Street Oligarchy of the Soviet States of America, marches on! Don't get in their way, or they'll stomp you. If you own a small business, they'll destroy you. Play along, and they'll merely tolerate you and you annoying, honest little business. You have no choice: do it their way, or die.
Just ask yourself: Why are there no US Congressional Hearings into this whole sub-prime-investment house/banks collapse? Think about it for a few minutes; I'll wait. Got it? It started in the early 90s, when the BJ Klintoons ran The White House, and the GOP controlled Congress, by the slimmest of margins. BJ & Hitlery Klintoon told the Congress to "end redlining" (Community Reinvestment Act) — a perfectly-sane practice of deciding who could/ who couldn't pay back mortgages. Hence, anyone and everyone was given outlandish mortgages, to significantly-increase home ownership, regardless of future problems, which would be years away after Klintoon was out of office, but made his crooked and corrupt administration's "mortgage numbers for minorities", look great back then. The next administration would take that hit; not him. If the US Congress began to hold hearings into this mess, it would bring the filthy, stinking corrupt Klintoons, and liberal-demokkkRATs, who had regulatory oversight on US Senate Committees, into the spotlight — like shining a flashlight on to cockroaches (they rapidly chirp & scatter!) — and trash muslim-islamist, left-wing Marxist, socialist US Sen Hussein Obama-Osama-Lama-Ding-Dong's US Presidential candidacy, once and forever. If the GOP had been behind the "anti-redlining" initiative, the hearings would have been rounded/widely-demanded and started 2-3 weeks ago. Gallows would already be erected on Capitol Hill, for the public executions. Think about it...
Sure, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Congress needs to act swiftly to preserve the health of the US economy and stem a widening crisis that started with housing and has spread to other areas. What else would they do? Once again, government intervention, aka "Community Reinvestment Act", is at the heart of the problem, as it was under the BJ Klintoons, in the 90s.
This is "Financial Terrorism", plain and simple.
US Rep Mike Pence (CONSERVATIVE-IN) is 100% right: take a deep breath and think about what this $700 Billion Bailout means for the US Taxpayers' future: it means disaster! DON'T DO IT! Let the crippled banks fail, and simply *re-organize them*.
The Federal Reserve said Sunday, that it had granted a request by the country's last two major investment banks — Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley — to change their status to bank holding companies. The Fed announced that it had approved the request of the two investment banks. The change in status will allow them to create commercial banks that will be able to take deposits, bolstering the resources of both institutions.
This is NOT a failure of the free markets of capitalism when, in fact, this is a failure because government injected itself into the free market, created this easy credit, these guaranteed loans, and these loans are what have turned into the bad paper that are bringing all these financial institutions down.
You're damned right the FBI should be investigating mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, insurer American International Group Inc., and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.! My guess is they'll be told to "find nothing".
The real economy is deteriorating quickly and this is not due to the "credit crunch" which just went "critical" in the last two weeks (beyond the survey period); the fact of the matter is that this plan will not and cannot work, because it fails to address the root of the issue, which once again is:
• There is no way to value any financially-related firm in the United States as their balance sheets are nearly 100% opaque; until you force Level 3 assets and "off balance sheet" exposures out in the open (this does not require "mark to market", but it DOES require that you force firms to expose both the claimed assets and their valuation models) investors cannot have an informed opinion of a firm's true value, or even whether that firm is solvent.
• Without caging the derivatives monster you cannot stop a disorderly unwind, thereby making it impossible to know whether you will suddenly get hit with a Cat 5 hurricane of cross-defaults.
• Without taking down irresponsible leverage, which the firms have refused to do voluntarily, you cannot prevent failures that result from very small losses in these firm's portfolios.
This bail-out bill scam addresses NONE of these matters, but all must be addressed in order to restore credit flow in Corporate America.
Once again, I maintain that this is "Financial Terrorism", pure and simple. And "they" think we're the "retards", don't they? They have a very rude awakening coming; trust me on that point.
Around The Garden Center™.
Friday was a typical ho-hum day, until around 10am, when James called, and alerted me that we'd have a slew of potential LSCP customers in on Saturday (he was [planning to be at the GC&N Complex, to guide them thru the maze of LSCP Complexities, and that they'd be ready to plunk-down their requisite funds for their LSCP Plant/Hardscape Materials.) Great! I'd already done their Revised LSCP Estimates, so all was in-order, for their respective arrival. Alan, Arthur & Charlie had prepped the Workshops Class' raised veggie garden beds ("Victory Gardens") framework, with another for this weekend's class (the previous class was canceled due to heavy rains), and we prepped the Ali-Baba Jar Water Feature, for another potential LSCP customer to see, as she wanted one installed in her LSCP Job. Whatever it takes!
I did the week's payroll in the (upgraded tax tables etc) QuickBooks Pro 2008, and then moved on to other, more important things. LSCP Billing, LSCP Estimates, and a few 'interviews', from local TV, radio and newspapers. I also had an interview with Olivia's House, as I'm now a "Heart Partner" who has donated $5,000-plus to that very, very-worthy cause, to deal with, so I called Zack, their 'interim intern', and scheduled the interview, for next week. "Interim intern"? Huh? Funny phrase, BTW.
I had several minor, on-site meetings to go to, in lieu of James being able to get to them — I don't mind 'covering his tracks', these days — since he's 'somewhat spread-thin", and I want him to get to the potentially-important meetings, and I'll cover the others, whatever their outcome. I can always relay the other meetings' outcome to him; if they're *crap*, I'll let him know and won't bother him with such unimportant stuff. Gosh, I just wish I'd had a "filter", such as me, in all the years prior to my hiring him, to select/define/cull-out all the tens-of-thousands of lscp meetings I had to "blindly" attend & evaluate, over the 18+yrs. Heh. There were so many, it boggles the functioning mind. He's a very lucky man; I had no such 'filter', and I went to all of them. Can you say, 60,000+ miles/year, in PA-MD? Can you? I went though 2 Jeep Grand Cherokee LTDs (1988, 1994), each with ~275,000+ miles on them.
Okay, back to "daily reality': gas prices, at the pump, are now up, again. Unleaded Regular (87oct) is now at $3.55/gal, Unleaded Premium (89oct) is now at $3.65/gal, and Unleaded Super Premium (92oct) is now at $3.85/gal, and Diesel is $3.99/gal. Wowser, bigtime!
Saturday was busy. We had a "Victory Garden" Workshop planned, with three teaching it, and 5 attending. Retail traffic was moderate, as the once-a-year 25% Off Sale progresses. I'll be extending it into October. And yes, we're already thinking about putting all the nursery stock away for Winter, as Fall arrived Monday, and it feels more and more like October-November, each day. Our Friday "Tree Installation Schedule is completely-booked through Friday, November 7th, and our Landscaping Scheduled is booked through the same date. My Landscape Designer, James, did a great job in bringing-in several medium-sized LSCP Jobs, which will keep my remaining "LSCP A-Team" and Seth, my Hardscape Foreman/Mason, working into late October/ early November.
We had a "Victory Garden" Workshop on Saturday, where Jennifer, Bob & Alan presented a comprehensive method of raised gardening, building raised garden beds and how to garden in special, raised beds. They actually built one 4'x8' bed, alongside another in my little gardening area, let the attendees help screw-together the 2" x 12" x 8'/4' boards, to build the framework, and fill the beds with a 50-50 mixture of rich, unscreened bottom-land topsoil & rough-screened compost. Sweet! The 4-5 Attendees were mesmerized and enthralled with Alan's/Jennifer's/Bob's presentation. I helped sell some tree installations and LSCP plant materials, and enjoyed myself, BTW. I also made "lunch" for myself, around 2:30pm — York County baked chicken pot pie — and also made one for James, as he looked "peaked, tired and very hungry", from all that "customer contact", since mid-morning. It "hit the spot", for both of us. I could have slept for 4-5hrs, after that carb-loaded meal. Heh. The day's receipts were pretty good, although not as good as last Saturday's 'great one", but every weekend is quite different.
James & I plugged-in the several new LSCP Projects into the company's LSCP Schedule, and we've now filled-the-schedule-out until late October. And it'll be good to get Seth, my Hardscape Foreman/Mason, back to work, as he's been "on vacation" since last Friday, doing various private/personal hardscape projects for both family and friends. To get those jobs completed, we have a large, 16-pallet/tractor-trailer "stone-delivery order", to be placed on Tues/Wed, so that we can get it here, before the new jobs begin. I'm happy to have those LSCP Jobs, on-the-books, at this time of year.
I spent Saturday evening semi-recuperating from back pain, from the days' busy activities, laying on my King-sized couch, with the AC cranked-down to 70°F, and with the two condo cats — Murphy & Mama Kitty — splayed-out and curled-up with me, I lit-up the gas fireplace and enjoyed the 85-minute Pink Floyd Concert, at near full-volume. Screw my neighbors, anyway. I'd also just gotten an Allen Bros shipment of 8-8oz Filet Mignons & Stuffed Chicken Breast Sampler, today at work, so I divided them-up amongst-up my home's kitchen 'fridge and garage's 10.8 CuFt top-loading freezer. Plenty to go 'round, BTW.
On Saturday evening, I took 3 - 300mg Gabapentin, instead of my usual 2 - 300mg, for the Sciatica pain in my r/foot-calf, and on Sunday morning I wasn't fit to drive or even go to work. I was so woozy and disoriented — absolutely no pain, though! — I made a 3-high stack of French Toast, and went back to sleep for the rest of the morning and part of the afternoon, until 2:30pm. I'll have to call my OSS Dr, and get some kind of adjustment on the meds. Needless to say, I missed Sunday at the GC&N, altogether. But I was ***pain-free***, all day! I felt like I could run with a cross-country team, but I sure wasn't fit to drive or even go to work.
My favorite Talk Radio Show, "The Savage Nation", now has a PodCast page, on KNEW-910AM Radio. I listen Monday - Saturday, on KFMB 760AM Radio, from 6-9pm. But on Sunday, the only "game-in-town" for me, is Savage's PodCast of recent shows.
As a Small Business Owner, I'm helping to bail-out the stinking, filthy, lowlife criminal scumbags on Wall Street, thanks to the corrupt, criminal US Congress. I've "noticed" — thanks to "inside sources" — that so many of my competitors are on-the-edge of actually going under, and are quickly-applying for loans and personal lines of credit, just to stay afloat. Scores of companies, hundreds of employees, thousands of their family members are involved, as are their collective daily lives and long-term futures. No one is even talking about it, these days. But I am, dammit! I could go right-down-the-row, and list them, but I won't. The US Gov't shouldn't be involved in this $700 Billion Bail-Out Mess; it should be taken care of *solely*, by the Financial Sector. They should clean-up their own stinking financial messes, dammit! Okay; enough. It is what it is, and what it shall be, from here-on-in.
My once-a-year, 25%-Off-Fall-Sale (Fall Workshops Ad, but with "25%-Off Sale Burst", top-right corner), is happily-bringing-in many more customers, than it did, last year; even during this past Spring, which is our busiest period. We're booked-up for Friday Tree Installations, through early-November, and... wait; didn't I already say this, earlier? Okay, enough of it. Nothing significant's changed since Sunday. If it does, I'll mention it.
I've had/ now have, numerous Key Staff & A-Team Employees "off on vacation", during the past 2 weeks, until numerous Landscape Projects "kick-in", beginning the wo/ September 29th, and continuing through November 14th. I have some other "financial responsibilities" from 2007, mainly Rev Tom Shelley's Zion Shaffer Lutheran Church, which needs a long-overdue "Picnic Tree Grove" installed, and we'll get it done, this Fall, BTW. There are several other projects, which will also be brought to fruition, this Fall, as well, though not as important. I need to get them all "cleaned-up", this year, so I can sleep much better, at night. No, I don't need the "tax write-offs" this year — this year sucks, financially — but getting all the "loose-ends" cleaned-up, is just what I need to close-out the 2008 Fiscal Year. I can take those other write-offs, over the next 3-5 years, BTW.
Jennifer & I have some meetings this week, with my long-term nursery stock reps, and I have "bad news" for them: no Spring 2009 orders, fellas. I have way too much leftover nursery stock, with a few exceptions, to even bother with additional Spring 2009 orders. Iseli Nursery is the only one I've placed anything of substance with, to date. I might have some late-Spring or Summer orders, but nothing right now. I have more stock to store for Winter, than I actually have room for, right now. I'm hoping that my "25%-Off Fall Sale", will delete some of all that wonderful nursery stock, from my burgeoning inventory. So far, it hasn't'; I'm overloaded! I refuse to "prostitute myself & my company", by offering 50% or 60% or 75% Off, as all my competitors have done/are now doing. I'd rather carry-it-over, into the Spring 2009 Season, darnit. Oil prices are beginning to climb, and I foresee ***much higher home/corporate bldg-heating prices***, over the next 7-8 months, both in heating oil (no, not me) and natural gas (yes, me).
On Monday, as I went home from work, I noticed that gas prices, at the pump, had *dropped 10¢*, despite what the news reports were reporting, as an increase in crude oil prices: Unleaded Regular (87oct) is now at $3.45/gal, Unleaded Premium (89oct) is now at $3.55/gal, and Unleaded Super Premium (92oct) is now at $3.75/gal. I feel sorry for the folks in the South, who have no gas, at all: they're trying to cope with the problem. We've got an abundance, up here. Come and get some! If I could ship you hundreds-of-thousands-of-gallons of the "nasty fluid", I surely would. Count on it, folks.
I have one of my "Key Staff on vacation", this week, and 2+ "LSCP/HSCP Staff on vacation", over the coming next few weeks. We also have some nice LSCP/HSCP Projects/Jobs coming-up, and I will recall the "vacationing Landscape (LSCP)/Hardscape (HSCP) Managers & Crew Members", for "immediate service" on those specific LSCP Jobs. They're readily-available, and I will do so. Seth, my Hardscape (HSCP) Foreman was in today, to review one of the upcoming hardscape jobs, with James, my landscape (LSCP) Designer, and they both visited the new job site. Seth & I quickly-placed a stone order with our main supplier, for a requested-arrival next Wednesday, for that and another HSCP job. Earlier in the morning, Jennifer, my Staff Horticulturalist, & I spent almost 2hrs, with one of our 3 main nursery stock reps, for his 4+ nurseries, placing orders for Spring 2009. They were "meager orders", as compared to other prior-year Spring orders, for his group of growers/suppliers. The reality is this: "it is what it is". (((sigh))).
I'm finished with all of James' prepared LSCP-Design Plans, with my detailed LSCP Estimates, as of Tuesday, and literally have close-to-a-hundred, sitting "unanswered" in a file box, just behind my desk. If just 25% of them had responded with 50% of the work that James had spec'd, and I had estimated, we'd be "booked" thru late-Summer 2009, I'm guessing. Heh.
Seth has another Hardscape Workshop Class, next Saturday, October 4th, with 13 Participants, signed-up, to date. So far, Seth's the ***Leader*** in the Hardscape Workshop Class, in that he's gotten the most Participants to sign-up, for his two Hardscape Workshop Classes. I'm truly impressed. Everyone who's signed-up and who has participated in his first Workshop — Saturday, August 30: Cut, Faced & Stacked-Stone Walls — were very pleased/happy with his initial class, and wanted to participate in his 2nd class, and have signed-up to do so. Bravo, Seth. He's now taking 2 days to prep for his 2nd class, and it'll be as good or better than his first class, I'm betting. I just wish I had ***more Seths***, on my GC&N Team, BTW. More James, too.
Wednesday was a relative-calm day: I did some target shooting with a friend, installed Adaware2008 malware-detector software on the 2 front counter computers, and removed hundreds of infected files, and tended Jennifer's pruner-nipped, bloody finger, and just as I was ready to close-down for the day, 3 customers showed-up and I had to load 2 large Dogwoods into a pick-up truck with a topper. The other 2 bought some small shrubs, and I finally got out of there, around 5pm. This week, Thursday (tomorrow) is my day-off, and I was ready to get started, on Wednesday evening, by getting to sleep early. One of the "interns" from Olivia's House, called me to schedule an interview for their "Heart Partners Program" — those of us who've donated at least $5,000 to them — on their website. Just as I was closing-down the Complex, customers started coming-in, and I had no one to help-out. One guy needed 2 medium-sized Dogwoods loaded into a pick-up, with a topper on it. I fired-up the JD 675B Skidloader, and got it done. The other two bought medium-sized shrubs, and I carried them down to their sub-mini-compacts, and jammed the plants into their so-called cargo spaces, which are the size of a postage stamp. (sigh)
I spent Wednesday evening cleaning-out the garage's 8.4 CuFt Top-Loading Freezer (it was the largest unit available, at the time, in 2006, at $115), re-sorting all the "stuff" in there, and getting some of the three 20-25lb tubs of Fall-2007-oven-roasted Butternut Squash 'Meat', ready for "deployment", down into my small GC&N's Office Kitchenette's freezer, to prepare & serve to my Key Staff & LSCP Crews, in the coming days/weeks. Actually, at my well-equipped home kitchen, I'll mildly-re-roast the BS flesh, pureé it, and add Half & Half, and pureé the entire mixture, and serve it, in a large, comfy-looking soup bowl, with a 'dollop' of sour cream, and garnished with minced chives, if available, at this time of year. There are "other options:, if chives aren't available. The truly-nice thing about gardening, is that "substitutions" can be made for 10 of the 11 other herbs, or whatever you're using, or you can simply *omit* (gosh, yes I like that word!). Heh.
Thursday was my "day off", so I slept-in until 11:30am, went food shopping, stopped at Sears to look at a "plain vanilla" replacement refrigerator, dropped-off a beautiful photo which a client had done of me sitting at their water garden, at a local framing shop, to get matter & framed, had an interview done about me for Olivia's House "Heart Partners" Program, which we're a $5,000 Contributor-Member (which will be posted online around mid-October), picked-up laundry & drycleaning, etc. Some day-off, huh?
My GC&N's Future.
After 18, and going on 19 years, I've been spending some serious time pondering just "what's next", for me and it. At 58 years old, and in relatively-good health — niggling Sciatica L-5 vertebrae problems, notwithstanding — I've taken some stock in what I want to do with the rest of my life's effort.
I provide employment, jobs and a decent living wage, for anywhere from up to 10-18 employees, during every so-called "season". I have untold, "hidden expenses" — all kinds of insurance, taxes, marketing, utilities, payroll, out-of-pocket, shipping, fuel surcharges, etc — which 99% of my employees and customers know nothing about. The budgeting process, which I have to go through, is massively-burdensome for a small entity such as myself, but necessary for any entity to survive and prosper. Other "Sub-Chapter S" Corporations, with multi-layers of management, fortunately have multitudes of personnel, who can perform their respective managerial tasks of doing such tasks, and adding-them-into the "the corporate operating budget mix". I don't have "those specialized departments" do that; I/Dad have to that, ourselves. (((sigh))) Those of you, who "help me make this Nation run-profitably", as 90% of all Small Businesses do, know exactly what I mean. Get it? Yep.
I have a 18-year old, 20-acre Garden Center & Nursery Complex, which is very, very well-known in both the Horticultural Industry and regional community, and has a reputation second-to-none, anywhere in North America, for Jap maples & Conifers. And a very nice selection of a couple hundred varieties of perennials. No bedding plants & annuals; they're junk, IMO.
What do I want to do *next*, I ask myself?
Yes, after almost 19yrs in this horticulture business/industry, I'd like to "retire", and start another "venture": a retail-oriented, high-end, gourmet foods business. My training as a chef is a major factor in my love of food, of all kinds (except tofu and soy-based products), so I'd like to move-over into that field. The "prepared foods" area does present another whole set of "challenges", BTW. But I think I can deal with them, even in today's marketplace of heavy, governmental interference and intervention. Absolutely nothing from China, Asia or the Mideast, in any of my proposed, culinary-repertoires. Absolutely none from those world "shitholes". NONE!
I've got a lot to "think" about, in the coming Winter months. I want to arrive at a "decision", by Spring, 2009. And I shall be "thinking about it", during that time period.
Things Which Make Your Head Explode™.
All of a sudden, the US Rep Nancy Pelosi bitch/skank/commie-socialist, wants us "retards, morons, idiots & cretins" to think that she's "changed her (empty-headed) mind about offshore drilling", but she's an blatant, transparent liar. A 50-100 mile barrier for the oil exploration, states sharing revenues, having yes/no decisions? WTF? The bulk of the oil/gas reserves are inside the 50 mile limit, you Pelosi-D'Alesandro-filth whore! The bullshit bill that the filthy, stinking, criminal, corrupt Baltimore (MD) D'Alesandro-scum-family, whorebag-bitch proposes, is totally, anti-American crap! She's a liar. traitor, seditionist & saboteur. Go ahead and read that bullshit; I'll wait. Where's Lee Harvey Oswald/John Hinckley/Mark David Chapman, when the country really needs them? Too darned bad none of those three shooters, have any cousins with a .357 Magnum or .45cal ACP, at the ready-willing-able, to "remove" the left-wing, mentally-ill, Pelosi-D'Alesandro-filth whore. Sure would "make my day".
Does naturally-occurring, climate temperature change, affect Fall leaf colors? Well, sure it does. And the morons at Biologists at the University of Vermont's Proctor Maple Research Center, got $45,000 of our hard-earned taxes, for a "study to study it". Hells-bells; I can do all that for ***FREE***! (((sigh))) What absolute, frigging stupidity! Such is the US Government's waste, fraud & abuse of you and my monies.
The fat, unfunny, bloated little turdbag, asshole blowhard, Al Franken-scum, is running for the liberal-demokkkRAT US Senate seat from Minnesota? Where's Lee Harvey Oswald/John Hinckley/Mark David Chapman, when the country really needs them? Too darned bad none of those three shooters, have any cousins with a .357 Magnum or .45cal ACP, at the ready-willing-able, to "remove" the left-wing, mentally-ill Franken-pig. Sure would "make my day".
Did you know that muslim-islamist lowlife, Hussein Obama-Osama-Lama-Ding-Dong's national finance chair of Barack Obama's presidential campaign, Penny Pritzker, is the owner of the Hyatt, the hotel hosting the genocidal Hitler wannabee, Ahmadinejad Ahm-A-Dinner-Jacket? He needs killing, IMO! Kill that subhuman filth as he steps on US Territory.
Nigger, rat bastard, hard-left Marxist, subhuman muslim-islamist filth, Hussein Obama-Osama-Lama-Ding-Dong (Nigga-IL), can't even pass the FBI or Secret Service test, to become his own bodyguard. HTF did treasonous/seditious/saboteur, Bubba Jeffy Klintoon (TRAITOR-AR) get into The White House? Why is the subhuman Nigga filth/garbage/trash/shit/crap/sambo/boy/scumbag allowed to even run for The White House? Hussein Obama is dogshit!
Yes, many White dems are almost right: niggers, aka Niggas?, and not all blacks, are "lazy," "violent" and completely-responsible for their own troubles. And they need to defect to the GOP on Nov 4th, to keep that subhuman nigger filth, Hussein-Obama-Osama-Lama-Ding-Dong OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE! Actually, the DNC is responsible for most niggers' troubles, in that they've kept them "down on the DNC Plantation" for the past 60 years, on welfare, destroyed the Nuclear Black Family through unlimited welfare checks/payments and abortion-on-demand. Get it, yet?
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 everything you need to know about Global Warming, and why it's a good thing.
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)))
There's another "ice age" coming, not the AlGoreBoreLiar 'glob-bull warming' crap. Fuck you, AlGoreBoreAsshole!
Larsen B Ice Shelf in Antarctica collapses in 2002 = Glo-bullshit Warming? Fuck you, AlGoreBoreAsshole!
Read this 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.
Lowlife, Subhuman Filth™.
Thanks to three treasonous/sedition/saboteur, liberal-demokkkRAT American senator filth, China will be pumping Iraqi oil: liberal-demokkkRAT US Senators Chuckie Schumer, Claire McCaskill and Johnnie Kerry, all lowlife traitors/seditionists/saboteurs, have managed to get America f•cked. One would have thought that leading liberal-demokkkRAT senators who claim to be interested in finding other sources of funding to replace American dollars in Iraq, in helping Iraq spend its own money on its own people, and in lowering the price of gasoline for American citizens, would have been all for it. Instead, liberal-demokkkRAT Senators Chuckie Schumer, Johnnie Kerry, and Claire McCaskill wrote a letter to Secretary of State Rice asking her "to persuade the GOI [Government of Iraq] to refrain from signing contracts with multinational oil companies until a hydrocarbon law is in effect in Iraq." The Bush administration wisely refused to do so, but the resulting media hubris in Iraq led to the cancellation of the contracts, and helps to explain why Iraq is doing oil deals instead with China.
"Senators Schumer, McCaskill, and Kerry claimed to be acting from the purest of motives: "It is our fear that this action by the Iraqi government could further deepen political tensions in Iraq and put our service members in even great danger." For that reason, presumably, Schumer went so far as to ask the senior vice president of Exxon "if his company would agree to wait until the GOI produced a fair, equitable, and transparent hydrocarbon revenue sharing law before it signed any long-term agreement with the GOI." Exxon naturally refused, but Schumer managed to get the deal killed anyway. But the ostensible premise of the senators' objections was false — Iraq may not have a hydrocarbons law, but the central government has been sharing oil revenues equitably and there is no reason at all to imagine that signing the deals would have generated increased violence (and this was certainly not the view of American civilian and military officials on the ground in Iraq at the time). It is certain that killing the deals has delayed the maturation of Iraq's oil industry without producing the desired hydrocarbons legislation.
"Nor is it entirely clear what the senators' motivations were. Their release (available along with their letter to Secretary Rice at the New York Observer quoted Senator McCaskill as follows: "'It's bad enough that we have no-bid contracts being awarded for work in Iraq. It's bad enough that the big oil companies continue to receive government handouts while they post record breaking profits. But now the most profitable companies in the universe — America's biggest oil companies — stand to reap the rewards of this no-bid contract on top of it all,' McCaskill said. 'It doesn't take a rocket scientist to connect these dots — big oil is running Washington and now they're running Baghdad. There is no reason under the sun not to halt these agreements until we get revenue sharing in place,' McCaskill said." So was this about what's best for Iraq and American interests there or about nailing "big oil" in an election year?
"Either way, like Barack Obama's asking the Iraqi foreign minister to hold-off on a strategic framework agreement until after the American election, it was nothing but harmful to American interests and our prospects in Iraq. © 2008 Atlas Shrugged.
The stinking, subhuman, dink, gook, slope, jap-crap, slime-filth, are "protesting" the nuclear USS George Washington Carrier? Fuck you gooks and murderous, treacherous jap garbage! You started the fucking WWII, dumbass slimeball, dink, gook trash. And we finished it; you lost. Dirtbags crap-assed slopes.
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.
These videos are must sees & reads, IMO. The "Undercover Mosque" video series, reveals the subhuman, murderous, dirtbag Saudi Wahhabi influence overtaking the UK that is well on its way here in America, in our religious establishment and at our colleges. 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 representative, 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 Hussein Obama-Osama-Lama-Ding-Dong is elected POTUS, it will happen and he will gladly accommodate his fellow murderous, subhuman 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 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-f•cking, boy-buggering, lowlife, subhuman dirtbag, muslim-islamist dog-f•cking 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?
Iran's "alternative to Barbie & Ken dolls"?
A US muslim advocacy group terrorist-supporting organization, Council for American-islamic Relations (CAiR), Tuesday asked the Federal Election Commission to investigate whether a nonprofit group that distributed a controversial truthful DVD about the murderous filth called islam, in newspapers nationwide, is a "front" for an Israel-based group with a stealth goal of helping Republican presidential candidate John McCain. What's the matter CAiR: does the truth hurt? The promoters of "Obsession: Radical islam's War Against the West", denied trying to promote any presidential campaign. They said it's also incorrect to tie the DVD campaign to Jerusalem-based educational group Aish HaTorah International, although current and former employees are involved with the project. The Council for American-islamic Relations (CAiR) asked the FEC to investigate the DVD distribution, which targeted about 28 million households mostly in battleground election states.
Why Is "Ahm-A-Dinner-Jacket", Still Breathing?
I call for the immediate assassination/ killing/ murder, of Iran's subhuman filth, murderous, Jew-hating dictator, Adolph "Ahm-A-Dinner-Jacket" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was in New York on Thursday, for a speech before the worthless, useless UN, an event organized by several "religious groups", to honor the Iranian president murderous dictator, who wants to "wipe the Jews from the face of the earth". KILL HIM! KILL HIM! KILL HIM! KILL HIM! Please do it, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley or James Earl Ray! Oooops, I forgot; they're all dead, now. Any cousins, nephews or friends of those three shooters, out there, who'll do it, for the benefit of the world? I'll donate $100, to "the cause".
The subhuman, piece-of-muslim-islamic-pigshit should, IMO, have been either been arrested or shot-dead, upon setting foot on American Soil. Yes, I know that it would have reflected badly upon both the FBI and Secret Service etc, and I revere those US Gov't Agencies, but how else to rid the world of a murderous, mentally-ill Hitler-clone dictator, who wants to nuke Israel, and go to war with the West, to spread the filthy disease called *islam*, all over the world, and kill all of us Christians, Jews, Hindus etc? If you can give me a 'coherent alternative' to outright assassinating him, please do so. I'm listening.
Some People Just Need Killing™.
It's not my intention to be judge, jury & executioner here — that 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. I'd volunteer, at no cost to any Hard-Working Taxpayer, to headshoot these murderous, lowlife dirtbags and rid American Society's innocents (children, the elderly) of them, once and for all. And yes, I'd rather see one innocent man convicted and executed, than 10 guilty freed, to rob, rape and murder again.
Fat, bloated, murderous, subhuman, piece-of-lowlife-shit, Richard Cooey, a double murderer scheduled to be executed next month in Ohio, said Tuesday he has not deliberately gained weight to rule out his death by lethal injection. Huh? Bullshit! Kill the white trash garbage; use a .45cal if necessary! Kill the subhuman, murderous Cooey filth! KILL HIM!
Burn that murderous, subhuman NIGGER! KILL HIM! Fuck the SCOTUS! Troy Anthony Davis, 39, was scheduled to be executed tonight for the 1989 murder of a Savannah police officer, though several key witnesses have recanted their incriminating testimony. If that's true, KILL THE WITNESNESSES for perjury in a capital murder case, dammit! KILL THEM. Otherwise, KILL THE MURDERER! Burn the sambo.
Charles Dead Hood, another subhuman piece-of-lowlife-NIGGER- shitfilth, scumbag-lowlife, truly needs killing, IMO. Burn the murderous, subhuman garbage-filth! KILL HIM. The allegation "that the judge and the prosecutor who oversaw the inmate's death penalty trial had an affair", is TOTAL BULLSHIT. KILL HIM. KILL HIM. KILL HIM. KILL HIM. KILL HIM. Any fucking questions?
The father of John Walker Lindh — Frank Lindh of Marin County — who has spent nearly seven years in federal prison for serving in an Afghan army, told a room full of law students at University of San Francisco on Wednesday, his son has been used as a scapegoat for the faults of the US Government. Fuck you, Lindh: your piece-of-shit, traitorous kid, should have been hung from the nearest tree!! If I could do it, I would! Traitors are hanged; deserters are shot.
According to legend, Lionel C. Sternberger invented the first-ever (US) cheeseburger back in the 1920s. Whether or not the story is true, there's no denying that the humble "hamburger plus" has become a lip-smacking favorite the world over, and this site happily snacks on that fact every day. Prepare to witness the world's biggest, and naturally, the world's smallest cheese-coated, bun-encased, ground-beef patties. How about some dirty, greasy, and wholly inoffensive burger porn? But the real meat of the site (sorry!) is the extensive recipes section covering everything from cheeseburger pie to cheeseburger pizza. If you're getting a little peckish, heed the warning that is the Luther Burger wherein a donut, usually of the Krispy Kreme variety, replaces the regular bun... Yeah, I gathered you weren't feeling that hungry just yet.
