empty suits & skirts

Friday, July 28, 2006
now have to ask: what is there not to know about the morally-bankrupt, empty suits and dresses who supposedly 'represent' us in Washington, DC, and elsewhere around the world? Almost half are convicts, felons, criminals, wife beaters, check bouncers, cheats, thieves, pedophiles, drunks, DUI felons, forgerers, dope addicts; the other half are scumbags, lowlifes, dirtbags, traitors, seditionists, terrorist-supporting trash and subhuman garbage. I'm too rough on them, you say? What would you have me do to/suggest for those who would subvert and destroy America, from within? Ignore them? They are The Enemy Within™, and need to be duly-charged, tried, convicted, sentenced and executed for treason, in a time of war. They are treasonous, seditionist subhuman filth. Yet, America is still for sale, on a daily basis, as long as those Untermensch have a place at the table. The smarmy, effite, do-nothing worthwhile except to get re-elected, lying, underhanded scum of the US Congress, are worse than murderers in plain clothes. Their true agendas are concealed and hidden from view by the phony public personna they wear, the clothes which dress them and the lies they tell. Many hate-America, hate-US Military, liberal-demokkkRATs are being bankrolled by billionaire socialists and marxists, hell-bent on taking over the already cowardly and corrupt US Senate. And don't forget the various-and-sundry other socialist, liberal corporations and organizations who've bankrolled the liberal-demokkkRAT party, over the years. The GOPer-RINOs are merely the flip side of the same, corrupt coin. Okay, okay, I know. You're surprised to hear that from me? Neither are fit to govern anyone anywhere, yet we — the Dumbass American Electorate — keep electing and re-electing them to office, term after term. This is one of those “Things Which Make Your Head Explode™”, isn't it? None of the felons, scumbags, lowlifes and dirtbags in the US Congress is fit to sweep the floor of this American Hero's floor.

Around The Garden Center™.
While prepping some new employee files for payroll on Friday, Intuit® QuickBooks® 2006 software "shit the bed" (LOL!, Mark) on Thursday afternoon, and I was on the phone to Mark, of J&M Systems, for some quick help. He made it up to the GC&N Complex by 1pm, and soon fixed the network problem. Payroll was done on Dad's laptop earlier that morning, but it's nice to have the repairs done on my office unit, since that's de rigeur on a weekly basis. With all the "software changes" we'd wrought on that machine during the week, something was bound to get "stepped on", and it looked like it was the www.microsoft.net files which did get the worst of it. We also had some issues (I hate that word) *problems* with GardenWare® vs CounterPoint®, and once again, it was the crappy, amateurishly-written/produced GardenWare® software, which was at fault. That problem was "fixed", too.
Friday was hot (89°F/ heat-index 94°F) and humid, too, but not as bad as it was for the previous few days. My landscape crews struggled through the week's weather, and got their assigned projects done. They all looked weary and worn-out, as they picked-up their paychecks around 4pm. I sympathized, as I had 'been there, done that, got the t-shirt', not that many years ago, as I had done the client contact, design and estimating work, led the crews on jobs, and did all the retail work, myself. But that was 15-16 years ago, and I was wearing a lot of hats, due to paucity of funds and scarcity of overlapping personnel. Today, that's all changed. We have always had a 'deep bench' of talent, or at least we did, until I recently lost my two most experienced landscape crew chiefs. Now, we're temporarilly-crippled, and looking to re-group. I daily give *thanks* for both Alan (Landscape Foreman) and Seth (Master Mason & Crew Chief), who are keeping us in the game, at this point. And for James (Landscape Designer), who helps bring in the 'bacon'. And for GC&N Staff, Jennifer (Certified MD Horticulturalist), Ken (weekend salesman), Bob (her assistant), Justine (retail checkout) and Brad (handyman), who help keep the 'bacon' looking edible and saleable. And for Dad (My Hero), who daily goes *above and beyond the call* to get done the many, many things which need to be done. Over the past 16 years, I've hired/fired, trained, groomed and promoted hundreds of people to positions they would never have attained, and then (knowingly) prepared them for a career boost, on my nickel. I applaud and cheer them on for their lives' career choices and wish them all, well.
The whole damned week was hot and humid. My L-5 back pain returned on early Wednesday morning — after pretty much being AWOL for the past 5-6 weeks — as I got up to feed and water the two Condo Cats (Murphy & Mama Kitty). After using a heating pad — cold paks in the aftrernoon and evenings — and a hot shower on my back, I went back to sleep, and wet into work around 8:45am. I was good for the day, getting lots of billing, estimates, correspondence, calls, retail assistance, and personal errands done.
Late-season fertilizer for living plant material, in the Fall? Administered "willy-nilly" by simply reading the manufacturer's directions? The very same folks who want you to buy more product, even though it's the wrong time of year to dose any and all plants with fertilizer? What sense does that make? The days are shorter, the temps are cooler, and most all living things are preparing to *go to sleep for the coming Winter months*; aren't you and I? I know I am. Instead of following directions on the bags of Holly-Tone Fertilizer which, IMO, are simply trying to sell more fertilizer by advocating a Fall feeding, DON'T do as they say. Instead, cut any and all fertilizers off, around August 15th. Let your hardy plants — perennials, ornamental grasses etc — "ripen-off", go brown and then cut them back, as with all bulbs in the Spring, and with all perennials during the Spring, Summer and Fall growing seasons. Let your trees and shrubs drop leaves, go dormant and not push out any new growth, for the coming Winter months. Common sense, people; just a little common sense. I *feel a new ad* coming on, baby!
It's hard to believe that July's just about history, and that it's almost August already; the days are getting slightly shorter, the nights slightly longer and soon our once-a-year, 25% Off Sale will begin September 1st. Tempus fugit, baby. Funny how when you're young, time seems drag on; later, when you're older, it flies along and goes too fast. In either case, we're never in control; we're all just along for the 'ride'.
Somewhat off our 'weekly schedule', I called Dolly Wednesday evening, and she sounded very good, what with all the "Elder Care" she's gone through over the past 3-5 years. It does my heart good to hear her doing well, and that she's got some time for herself and her own projects. She is richly-deserving of decades of “good times” vs “times which try mens' souls”; heck, you know what I mean. Score: Dolly 1; Life 0. Bravo, kiddo!
Did I mention that I like my new Nokia/Cingular 6061 cellphone?

The New Condo Computer™.
It was finally ready for installation. Jeff had worked and re-worked it for over two weeks. Parts were exchanged for other parts, aside from the original specs, to get it to work correctly. Here's the hardware line-up, as installed on Sarurday evening: CASE: FULL TOWER... POWER SUPPLY: 500W... MOTHERBOARD: RAID & FIREWIRE... CPU: DUAL CORE AMD 64... CPU COOLER... HARD DRIVES: FOUR 250GB SATA II... MEMORY: 2GB... FLOPPY: BLACK... CD-DVD-RW: from the current unit, and the TV-Tuner Card, also from the current unit, as both are current, fast models. The 3 USB ports on the front are active and I am looking forward to using the two Lexar USB 1Gb Flash Drive units, instead of "lugging" DVDs or ZIPs home with work and Journal files on them.
Jeff stopped by my condo, last Saturday evening around 6:30pm, with all the newly-assembled hardware, and we dismantled the existing machine, moved the old 17.9GB (15,000 RPM Cheetah SCSI) HD into the new machine (4 - 250GB, 7,200 RPM HDs) copied apps and data files over to the new 500GB HD. We tested each upgraded, updated or new app for intergrity, made certain that the corresponding data files could be accessed by it, got new drivers if needed (almost all the apps did), transferred the Hauppague Win-TV CATV card over to the new unit, got new drivers and technical data, but no pic or sound. Darn. We checked the InterNet connection, and the Netscape v8.1 Browser and Email worked, just fine. Jeff left around 11:45pm. Just 2 hrs later, the Asante Router "shit the bed" (burned out) and I had zero connection with the outside world. Crap. Okay, I figured I could watch some of the many movies I'd recorded and stored on the Seagate external 200GB HD, but that wasn't responding, either. Damn. Neither were the many DVDs I'd recorded stuff on. All I could play were CDs, and I only had one (1) at the ready. One fricking CD. Shit Darn it. No weather, no news, no forums, no movies, no nothing. Dammit. By 3:15am, I'd had enough of all the problems, turned it off, and went to sleep. Son-of-a-gun. I had a 'hardware/software shopping list' of parts and files to cannabalize from the GC&N Complex spare parts bin, and would deal with it all on Sunday, my one day off. Frigging A! Actually, a day without Net acess was peaceful and serene, and I enjoyed it.
Jeff was back on Monday evening for a retry on getting Net access — to get my T-1 Cable Modem and 56k dial-up (for Winter back-up) — going, to get the Hauppauge® Win-TV® 250 Tuner Card working, and to get the DVD record/playback working, once again. It took less than 1½ hours to get it all fixed. Especially with all the 'cribb-card' products. I'm a very happy camper, once again.
This Jeff-built, 'super-fast computer' is the most amazing machine I've ever owned: 9-10secs to open Win-XP-Pro, and 3-4secs to shut it down, as compared to the other units I've owned, with much longer open/close times. 500GB is a boatload of Seagate HD, plus another 200GB of external Seagate storage, don't you think? 700GB of freaking HD storage? Woo-hoo!
Okay, back to reality. Carbonite, anyone? may so, but not me, chums.

Things Which make Your Head Explode™.
I continue to marvel at all the mindless morons who still blame Israel for the war in the ME, when it's *islam* who is to blame for all the death and destruction in today's world. It's not just Iran, Syria, Egypt, etc; it's *islam*, people!

GOPer® and RINO® Garbage™.
Hey, Condi Rice: take the job as NFL Commissioner, as you're an abject failure as SECSTATE, Condi. You were an 'okay' National Security Advisor, but you're way beyond your pay grade, now. And as far as your POTUS '08 Run: you've got a snowball's chance in hell, Condi. Understand? I think you do. Hells bells, with you as *NFL Commish*, I might even get re-intrerested in the so-called 'game'.
Dumbass, shit-for-brains House Republicans on Thursday were trying to move ahead with legislation to raise the federal minimum wage and to help small businesses lower the cost of health insurance for employees. More than two dozen moderate Republicans RINOs, many facing difficult re-election efforts in November, have also joined in the effort, forcing House Republican leaders to consider a minimum wage increase that they have opposed for nearly a decade. Bullshit. The minimum wage was never meant to be a 'living wage'.
Get cancer and die, Specter, you treasonous asshole. Where's Lee Harvey Oswald when the Nation really needs him?
Asswipe, coward, traitor, lowlife, piece-of-shit, John McCain is mentally-ill. He is unfit to hold any elected office, IMO. He's in need of serious institutionalization, for life.

Liberal-demokkkRAT Traitors™.
Fat, bloated, alcoholic, mentally-ill, dirtbag, scum-sucking criminal, Joe Sestak, liberal-demokkkRAT candidate in Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District, has repeatedly violated federal law and US Navy regulations as it relates to appropriate conduct for the wearing of military uniforms. Those violations include wearing his uniform while engaged in campaign activities and wearing a uniform that displays a rank above what the grade at which he retired from service. Sestak is a liar, fake, phony and a fraud.
Chicago, as controlled by the dumbass, empty-headed, racist, liberal-demokkkRAT Niggas®, is finished as a city. Good riddance.

islam Is A Criminal Organization™.
Awwwwwwwwwww, boo-fricking-hoo! Eat mucho pigshit and die, muslim-islamic-arab terrorist assholes!
islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government. islam's goal? To take over the world and establish an islamic caliphate, either converting or killing every Infidel, aka non-muslim. Any questions?
First, muslims, islamics and arabs are not a race; they're a murderous, political and social religion cult. Therefore, all their bullshit charges of "racism" are total garbage. Charge dismissed as ignorant crap. muslims, islamics and arab terrorists are ordinary subhuman filth, totally-owned and operated by a religion cult of mindless anger, opportunistic political-social infection, and hate-filled dogma, and by pigshit-gulping, islamo-fascist "leaders", who control every moment of their empty-headed, hate-filled adherents', pathetic lives. islam is the complete imprisonment of body, mind and soul, and the total control of everything — every breath, every word, every act. islam is not a religion. It is a political cult of fascism, murder, hate, terrorism and destruction. Have you seen the head-cutting videos? Or the impaling video? Or the latest American to be murdered? And how about all these beheadings and murders? Go ahead and have a look; I'll wait.
By its own definition, islam is incompatible with any real religions or civilizations. islam is an opportunistic infection in the world's body. islam is made-up, moonbat idol garbage, by a dirtbag, drug-addicted, subhuman, murderer, pigshit-gulping, mentally-ill, delusional, pedophile. Hence, islam must be destroyed. And its mindless, subhuman, garbage adherents, do want to "wipe-out" Infidels and Non-Believers. Their words, not mine. When are you going to realize and comprehend that reality, America? "Multiculturalism" and "diversity" are the worst kind of trash: engineered socialism-communism-liberalism-nazism.
"•Muslims fly commercial airliners into buildings in New York City; No Muslim outrage. •Muslim officials block the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their faces were exposed; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims cut off the heads of three teenaged girls on their way to school in Indonesia. A Christian school; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims murder teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims murder over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt; No Muslim outrage. •A Muslim attacks a missionary children's school in India. Kills six; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims slaughter hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, Russia. Muslims shoot children in the back. No Muslim outrage. •Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and busses. Over 700 are injured. No Muslim outrage. •Muslims massacre dozens of innocents at a Passover Seder. No Muslim outrage. •Muslims murder innocent vacationers in Bali. No Muslim outrage. •Muslim newspapers publish anti-Semitic cartoons; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims are involved, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars around the world; No Muslim outrage. •Muslims beat the charred bodies of Western civilians with their shoes, then hang them from a bridge; No Muslim outrage. •Newspapers in Denmark and Norway publish cartoons depicting Mohammed; Muslims are outraged."
"Dead children. Dead tourists. Dead teachers. Dead doctors and nurses. Death, destruction and mayhem around the world at the hands of Muslims... no Muslim outrage... but publish a cartoon depicting Mohammed with a bomb in his turban and all hell breaks loose. Come on, is this really about cartoons? They're rampaging and burning flags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're threatening innkeepers and generally raising (un)holy Muslim hell not because of any outrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is part of the Islamic jihadist culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason. You just need an excuse. Wandering around, destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult is to a jihadist what tailgating is to a Steeler's fan."

Convicted September 11th conspirator and subhuman piece-of-pigshit-gulping-muslim-faggot, Zacarias Moussaoui, says he lied on the witness stand about being involved in the plot and wants to withdraw his guilty plea because he now believes he can get a fair trial. Kill the sand-Nigga®, muslim-islamic-arab filth! KILL HIM!
Here's why there'll never be peace and stability in any piece of the 6th century hellhole, subhuman turd-world, muslim-islamist-arab world. They're lowlife garbage; all needing to be killed. So many wasted US Military lives, dammit. I said this in March 2003, as the Iraq War began.
Have you seen this video, which shows that illiterate, lowlife, stupid, dumbass, pigshit-sucking dirtbag, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, as an incompetent, bumbling, muslim-islamist-arab pig-f*cker? No wonder the muslim pig-shitscum trash are still mired in the 7th century. Zarqawi is a cowardly, fat pig's turd.
Everything you need to know about the horror which is islam, is right here.
Much, much more than revenge is needed, against all liberal-demokkkRAT, socialist, commie, fascist garbage. Wipe Iran off the face of the Earth, IMO. islam = terrorism? Go figure.
Nice going, Canada. Get the murderous, subhuman, pigshit-drinking muslim filth out of your country! Shoot the garbage who won't voluntarily leave. All muslims = terrorism, murder, atrocities. Any questions? Got it, yet?
So, the Canadian media whores didn't mention that all 17 arrested were MUSLIMS from the same mosque? How PC and convenient.
Get the pigfucking, subhuman filth, murderous, asswipe dirtbag, muslim-islamist-arab filth outta My Country's Military, Bush & Rumsfeld! They are muslims first, and want to kill America, and bloodily-replace it with an islamic caliphate, under murderous sharia law. Get those faggot bitches outta My Country's Military, dammit!
Awwwwwwwwwww, muslim-islamist-arab pigfucker Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead? Rot in piggy hell, subhuman.
Hmmmm, 'homegrown' black muslim filth from Miami, plotting to blow-up Chicago's Sears Tower and other buildings in the US? Torture, interrogate and then kill the sand-Niggas®! They're subhuman filth.
Yes, islam is pigshit, and here's why. Any questions?
No, I don't advocate or recommend the harming or killing of "innocent, moderate muslims"; but then, I've never met any such people. All muslims hate us Infidels (you and me) and truly wish us (you and me) dead. Remember: islamics want to kill us (you and me); muslims merely wish us (you and me) dead. I do heartily-advocate and recommend the outright targeting and killing of all muslim-islamic-arab terrorists, and their supporters, everywhere and anywhere you find them. Find the terrorists and KILL THEM!
The terrorist-supporting, pigshit-gulping cowards at CAiR (Council on American-islamic Relations) is now targeting InterNet Blogs, for hurtful, hate speech again islam (pigshit be upon it), muslims (pigshit be upon it), mentally-ill pedophile, mo-HAM-head (pigshit be upon him) and moonbat false idol, allah (pigshit be upon him). Hey, muzzie filth: fuck a dead pig!
The Finsbury Park Mosque, where the one-eyed, hook-handed, pigshit-drinking, boy-buggering, lowlife subhuman piece-of-shit, militant turd-boy cleric, Abu Hamza al-Masri once delivered his fiery sermons and helped turn a religious facility into the target for dozens of international terrorism investigations, is going through a makeover. Bullshit; it should be bulldozed, covered in pigshit, and all subhuman, murderous muslim-islamist-arab terrorists tried and summarily executed. They're muslim-islamist-arab terrorists and need killing.
Two more dead, subhuman, murderous, pigshit-drinking, muslim-islamist-arab filth: first, the homo-sodomite, fat, clumbsy, asswipe-pigfucker coward, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, is blown to bits? Rot in piggy hell, subhuman. Next, pig-humping coward, murderer, wimp, pumk, apostate faggot, Shamil Basayev, was also blown to bits. Good for our US Military! Damned good shooting, guys!
Murder, terrorism, death... it's subhuman muslims and their pigshit cult of islam killing more innocents in Mumbai (Bombay), India! Gee, there's a real shocker! muslim trash killing Infidels!
Shooting holes in the un-holy koran (pigshit be upon it) is now a hate crime? Maybe a littering misdemeanor, but certainly not a hate crime. Submerge a crucifix in urine and you'll get an NEA-NPR grant, and exhibitions in NYC and Paris? What if it were a US Flag or The Holy Bible? No big deal, according to the FBI. I piss and shit on, and wipe my ass with the un-holy koran. It's toilet paper.
The tertrorist-supporting, pigshit-drinking, turd-polishing dirtbag, treasonous & seditious filth from CAiR (Council of American-islamic Relations), readily advocate the liveral-demokkkRAT, cut-&-run non-tactic, tactics. Verbatim.
Go, get something better and more productive to do, FBI. muslim/islamist/arabs are the murderous terrorists here, FBI. Not Americans, dammit!
Thankfully for The Enemies Of America™, I'm only one man, with no/zero/zip/nada/zilch followers and absolutely no influence over anyone or anything. These are merely my opinions and thoughts; nothing more.
Looks like some black American religious leaders are finally realizing what the horror of islam (pigshit be upon it) is really all about: hatred, racism, poverty, hopelessness, torture, beheading, boy-buggering, female genital mutilation, murder, death and destruction. I sure wish the rest of the stupid world woulod wake-the-fuck-up, and see islam (pigshit be upon it) for what it is: EVIL!
Terrorist suspect Momin Khawaja, an Ottawa computer software programmer, needs to be tortured and killed; he's a subhuman muslim-isamic-arab terrorist filth. Kill him! Face down in a pit of liquid pigshit, asswiper! You're in hell, with 72 raisins. Gimme 90 secs alone with that subhuman; I'll kill him s-l-o-w-l-y and very, very painfully. YES! End of terrorist, in perpetuity.

Some People Just Need Killing™.
Reason #1 why I carry concealed, and why I answer the door with a 1911 Kimber "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP, in hand. Those subhuman, criminal, lowlife, dirtbag Niggas®, need killing and permanent removal from The Gene Pool, IMO.
The murderous, subhuman Yates bitch murdered her own 5 children, by drowning them, and she's once again declared "not guilty by reason of insanity"? If there is anyone who deserves, needs and begs to be kill, it's this piece of shit. Kill the fucked-up bitch!!

Pictures of Walls.
Once you get past the dire warning about cursing and the slightly confusing navigation (scroll down and click on the big white arrows), you'll find some spray-painted gems in this collection of city snapshots. Using tagged expanses of brick, cement, glass, metal, and plywood as subjects, the contributors to this photo "Gallery of Grime" have tracked down moments of beauty and desperation in the often hidden landscape of urban street expression. You won't see any portraits of those who left their messages — or the "spotters" who noticed their work — but it's just as compelling to watch the walls speak for themselves. In settings as diverse as Tel Aviv, Sydney, Reykjavik, London, and New York, the statements captured in these images range from political to literary — but always with a powerful undercurrent of the humanity standing just outside the frame.
