sweet dreams

Friday, June 1, 2001

if one is unable to sleep soundly and honestly as most, if not all, liberal DemocRATs are apt to do try a "liberal" pill. Works for the lib-dem slimeballs. Hell, they sleep at night just fine after ruining the Nation with their perverted and twisted socialist-communist theory and obstructionist actions. Thwarting Justice and Law never bothered those subhuman scumbags. Lying to the Nation, cheating Americans out of The US Constitution's protection and Bill Of Rights guarrantees, stealing other peoples' hard-earned money and re-distributing it to the "poor", subjugating blacks to welfare for 50+ years to keep them under their control et al, has never bothered their souless political party: "the party of the people". What a crock. I'm just hoping that all the lib-dem scum overdose on their pills and abruptly fade from the social scene; probably definitely won't ever happen, but at least I can dream. And I sleep very well, thankyouverymuch, without any medication, whatsoever.

Around The Garden Center.
Memorial Day Weekend was busy and we were open the whole time, just like the "old days". Recently, I've closed on Holidays, but Spring and Fall are those two seasons when people want to actively garden when they have time off, so we were open on Sunday and Monday, Memorial Day (observed). Thunderstorms and heavy showers moved through Friday evening, again helping to return some ground moisture after last week's 2 day rain event. No complaints here. Traffic was heavy on the way into work at 7am hey, it's a Saturday and I don't have to be in at 5:30am to get the landscape crews started with people and gear packed into vehicles heading wherever they're going. Did I mention that gas prices are "leveling-off" at $1.73.9/ gal (89 oct) right now. Thunderstorms also rolled through on Sunday and Monday, causing more than a few of the customers and staff to scramble for cover. No complaints; we needed the rain. Gaaaaaawd, it was busy on Monday; we were open 8am-3pm.
Sunday evening, I went to Jeff & Denise's for two gourmet, made-from-scratch pizzas and plenty of vintage vino. Awesome. Did you and your family grill last weekend? Read this.
The Garden Center & Nursery's phones were dead on Tuesday and half of Wednesday; apparently the hard rains had penetrated a small roof leak in our rear utilities building, and soaked some of the phone lines, shorting them out. Verizon (used to be GTE) and NTE (our long distance carrier) responded and repaired the problems. We lost hundreds of calls; people began re-calling to see if we were okay or had closed for vacation. No such luck.
I took Thursday off and caught up on some much-needed sleep. After doing some garage cleaning and condo reorganization, I got into my cooking-for-the-week mode, making pastas and garlic assered Italian bread for the staff at work and for myself at home in the evenings. I prefer to cook one day a week unless I'm having guests in the evening for a multi-course dinner and make lots of things ahead for the next 5-6 days.

Health Tips That Make Sense.
I've been often asked what my philosophy is regarding health and exercise. Being a 2-pack a day Marlboro (Red) smoker and having gained 60lbs since my '95 divorce, I'm an "excellent" example of a healthy American male. Not. But here's my advice, anyway:
Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A:You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop.
Q: Is beer or wine bad for me?
A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits and vegetables. As we all know, scientists divide everything in the world into three categories: animal, mineral, and vegetable. We all know that beer and wine are not animal, and they are not on the periodic table of elements, so that only leaves one thing, right? My advice: Have a burger and a beer and enjoy your liquid vegetables.
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body, and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
Q: At the gym, a guy asked me to "spot" for him while he did the bench press. What did he mean?
A: "Spotting" for someone means you stand over him while he blows air up your shorts. It's an accepted practice at health clubs; though if you find that it becomes the ONLY reason why you're going in, you probably ought to reevaluate your exercise program.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain-No Pain.
Q: If I stop smoking, will I live longer?
A: Nope. Smoking is a sign of individual expression and peace of mind. If you stop, you'll probably stress yourself to death in record time.
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: You're not listening. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?
Q: What's the secret to healthy eating?
A: Thicker gravy.
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not. When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach. I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about trying to live a longer and healthier life.

GOP Travails.
Our own VRWC media are really turning up the heat on the lowlife weasel Jeffords scumbag from the fag-loving state of Vermont. Here's hoping he gets a whopping case of cancer and dies painfully.
With the US Senate controlled by the lowlife lib-dem slimeball criminals, W's going to have to use the bully pulpit against their obstructionist activity in getting anything done for the next 4-8 years.
This is rich: lowlife, scumbag Chi-Comm Zemin criticizing W; the yellowdog chink is quivering in his loafers now that a real man occupies The White House and the gutless, spinless traitorous Clintoon lowlifes are gone. Zemin and his red commie country are a pathetic joke.
Atta boy, Cheney: rip those left wing wacko greens in California a new one. Their "energy problems" are of their own conscious making; let 'em stew in their own juices. Forget federal government "aid"; let 'em build more powerplants to solve the problem. Although my sister lives in San Francisco, she knows I have no degree of sympathy for anyone out there.
Will $300 or $600 checks from W's Federal Tax Cut improve "everyman's living conditions?" Probably not noticeably. Sooooooo, what do we do? Where do we go from here? Your guess is as good as mine.
Atta boy, W, send that homo-lover lib-dem shithead Gov "Grey-Out" Davis idiot packing: no price caps on energy! The left coast wackos did the damage over the past 20 years; now let them stew in their own juices. I have no sympathy for any of them.
For any blacks who read this Journal, try reading this from a Black Conservative Republican.
For the second time in 2 months, W's daughter, Jenna, has been caught with alcohol; this time using a fake ID to purchase. The girl needs a sound whipping and severe punishment. Get to it, Laura. Straighten that kid out. She's an embarrassment.

Lib-DemocRAT Garbage.
The stinking, liberal, criminal, disgraced, current senator (D-NY) Hitlery Rotten Clintoon whore rears her thieving, ugly head: votes against a Bush nominee who stopped AlGoreBore's appeal after 8 awful terrible horrible years in The White House, which seriously crippled American morals and social and religious values. Here's hoping the Hitlery bitch dies from some form of inoperable cancer, as well-deserved Just Retribution.
One of the most corrupt pieces of shit in the US Congress, Sen. Robert Torricelli (D-NJ), is about to be indicted. Good riddance and goodbye.
Rep. J. Joseph Moakley, (D-Mass), a good-humored Capitol Hill fixture for the last 29 years, is dead from cancer. He was a good guy and will be missed, despite being a democRAT.

Lowlifes, Scumbags & Degenerates.
The fat, stupid lardass, pommade-slopping, race-baiting, misery-profiteer Irrev Al "interloper Jew scum" Sharp-scum got his pathetic ass arrested again, this time, using Dr King's name to justify his abject stupidity. Rot in jail, you lowlife piece of subhuman shit. Sharp-scum's the worst racist bigot in America, just barely surpassing race-baiting, misery-profiteer, who's you daddy? Irrev Jesse "Hymietown" Jack-scum. But not by much, fat Al.
Lowlife towelhead filth suing McDonald's for putting beef fat in their fries? Hey lowlifes, I like it the way it is. You're the foreigners. Go back to your stinking cesspool country and eat a cow's rectum, scumbags. You're not wanted here in the US, lowlife trash.
This lowlife filthy bitch no I don't mean disgraced sen Hitlery Rotten Clintoon should be executed, for what she did to 150+ cats. I'd gladly pull the trigger. Euthanasia would have been much kinder years ago.
This is sick, perverted and socially unacceptable, yet the stinking liberal courts let the homo filth do it and get away with it all the time.
So, the lowlife degenerates in the Peoples Republik of Seattle won't prosecute a black who attacked a white, on the basis of race, as a "hate crime". Guess only whites can be prosecuted for "hate crimes"? Looks that way. How screwed-up is Seattle? Very, to my way of thinking.
Gaaaaawd, hasn't this gold-digging, two-dollar whore had enough court time? Give the filthy slut $1 and kick her fat ass out on to the streets, where all tramps belong.
Gee whiz, New York shitty (City) is "warning" W, that there's going to be riots, looting and "social unrest" in New York City if steps are not taken to keep the lights on this summer? Hey Pataki, you lowlife moron scumbag so-called cowardly wimp dog governor: issue orders to shoot to whack all rioters and looters; that'll end it very, very quickly. The scumbags won't do a whole helluva lot of damage when they see their kind lying dead in the gutters with lots of blood running into the sewers. If you're the coward we know you are, NYC, call me and I'll issue the orders and take the flack, you wimp bastards.
More race riots, looting and burning? No, not in the shithole People's Republik of Seattle this time, where the cops are cowards and afraid to do the correct thing: shoot to whack all participants, regardless of color. This time it's in Northern England, where the cops aren't even armed. No wonder they can't control crime, vandals, rioters and looters. If I was the Chief of Police, I'd issue sidearms and order rioters shot to death. That would end this shit once and for all. Dead bodies in the streets are a very powerful deterrent.
I agree wholeheartedly with this Texas judge that perverts and degenerates should have lawn signs telling the world that a Registered Sex Offender Lives Here.
Well, it only took 3 years to find, try and convict these lowlife towelhead subhuman filth of the two US Embassy bombings in Africa. They should be executed immediately, without delay. But that probably definitely won't happen. Years and years of bullshit appeals will ensue and further clog the US Court System.
Lowlife scumbag drug addict Robert Downey Jr is getting another break from The Law; the piece of white trash cokehead was already on probation when he was caught with more drugs, another felony, but he's getting more probation. When is The Law going to realize he's a subhuman worthless piece of shit and simply lock him up and throw away the key, like they do with most everyone else?
Here's a first: a black charged in a black-on-white "hate crime", during the riots in Cincinnati. About damned time.

Destiny, Postponed Regrettably.
I hate TV liberal lowlife filth scumbag cretins. Don't you? Sure you do. Now that the execution of Timmy "OKC Bomber" McVeigh has been delayed, talk has turned to what effect the latest case of FBI tomfoolery will have on American's support of the death penalty. The ideological-fringe tag team of Phil Donahue and Pat Buchanan hit the airwaves a few weeks ago to stage a mock debate on the death penalty and whether state sanctioned executions should be televised. Not surprisingly, Phil Donahue opposes the death penalty but approves of televised executions, and Pat Buchanan supports the death penalty but opposes televising its logical conclusion. And I must admit that I'm with Phil on this one. After all, we use to hang people on courthouse squares all over this country, why not juice McVeigh on PBS? I hate agreeing with Phil Donahue, but even though I do on this one occasion, he still sucks.
If there were a lifetime achievement award for sucking, Phi Donahue would get my vote. As the father of the daytime talk show, Phil Donahue is the Christopher Columbus of trash TV and the reason that last Fall's presidential election popular vote was destined to be won by the candidate who caused the most autoerotic secretions by women watching Oprah. It was Phil Donahue who birthed a television format where one day his audience could watch an abortion and the next day stick a dollar in the crotch of a Chippendale dancer. In its 29-year-run (1967-1996), there were nearly 7,000 Phil Donahue shows. Shows that brought to the surface a subclass of human existence so vile and ignorant that it should have been left unnoticed, free to rot away in oblivion. But Phil Donahue needed ratings. Phil Donahue had an agenda. An agenda so radically leftwing that it made Thomas Eagleton look sane in comparison.
But since 1996, Donahue has mercifully been removed from the scene, overwhelmed by the spin-off monsters he created. Thanks to Phil Donahue, the likes of Geraldo Rivera (Jerry Rivers), Rosie O'Donnell (fat, stupid ), Jerry Springer (lowlife scumbag), and Oprah Winfrey (Aunt Jemimah Nigress) pollute our airwaves with their mindless dribble. It was Donahue's syndicate that gave us Springer, and it is Donahue's studio that produces Rosie.
So I am amused and repulsed at the re-emergence of Phil Donahue on the airwaves. He has been everywhere these past few weeks. From Larry King to Bill O'Reilly, Donahue has gone before the cameras to remove any doubt if some existed that he is an asinine, conceited, and obnoxious mass of human tissue. To the unaware or uninitiated Phil Donahue may come across as an earnest liberal who is confident in his beliefs. But there is a fine line between being confident and obnoxious, and Phil Donahue has been on the wrong side of that line for as long as I can remember.
How liberal is Donahue? He once said, "I don't know if there's an issue the ACLU takes I disagree with." Oh c'mon, Phil. Surely even you don't approve of the ACLU's defense of the National Man Boy Love association. What am I thinking? Of course he approves. Donahue is the guy who said just last year, "I want my kids to see their heroes Schwarzenegger and Cruise march down Fifth Avenue in the Gay Pride parade." I cannot begin to describe how profoundly screwed up that statement is.
Like all liberal shitheads, Donahue touts tolerance while parading his intolerance before the world. Complaining of Catholicism, Donahue charged, "The Church has always thrived on ignorance and oppression." Oh my! One would think he was applying for a position at Bob Jones University. I'm surprised he didn't accuse the Church of being a cult. Oh, that's right, he did accuse it of being a cult. Anyway, if any institution or ideology can be accused of thriving on ignorance and oppression it is the institutional ideology of Phil Donahue's style of liberalism.
Phil Donahue is a hypocrite's hypocrite, and it is only fitting that he married one as well. "That Girl" talentless slut (Marlo Thomas) Phil married said of the Clinton Impeachment, "I don't want to hear about it. I don't want to know about anybody's sex life. I don't want to hear about yours, I don't want to hear about President Clinton's. There is only one man in America that has to keep his pants up, and that's my husband. Other than that, I don't want to know about it. I really don't. I find it really unappetizing. It's nobody's business." Well, I guess it's safe to say Marlo didn't bother watching most of her husband's shows.
The reason for Donahue's re-emergence is his latest cause, the campaign of Ralph Nader. Personally, I have no problem with Donahue supporting Ralph Nader, and I can admire the fact that as insanely naive as Phil is, he does have enough sense not to support Al Gore, and anything he can to do to increase the number of Nader votes in the Midwest and Northwest is greatly appreciated. But his condescending, holier than thou attitude makes me want to crawl into my television set and pound his disproportionately large head so hard he'll have to unzip his pants to say hello.
What really fascinated me about Donahue's performance this week was his insistence that Conservatives should support Nader because Nader is opposed to the drug war, and more and more conservatives see the folly of a war on drugs. To prove his point, Donahue cited such notables as George Shultz, Milton Friedman, William F. Buckley and John Shelley. Ok, he didn't really cite me, but he should have, because I could tell Phil that while I may agree with Nader on one or two issues, I wouldn't support that two-legged lizard if he were running for chief septic tank inspector, let alone commander in chief.
What kind of glue is Donahue sniffing that makes him think any rational thinking Conservative would want as president a man who thinks the defense budget should be cut by 100 billion dollars, who thinks it is time to demobilize our military, who thinks the F-22 aircraft is unneeded and too dangerous to fly, and who thinks we are wasting our efforts defending against non-existent enemies. In what world are these two bozos living? Certainly not this one. These guys have their heads buried in the sand so deep their eyebrows have been spotted in Beijing.
Of the military, Phil opines, "Supporting the military ought to mean supporting our uniform personnel, improving their housing and their lifestyles, instead of buying all these things that go boom, that make profits for Fortune 500 companies."
Golly gee willikers, Phil. How do you plan on doing that with a 100 billion dollar cut in the military? Eliminate from it everything that goes boom? Isn't the purpose of the military to defend us? What better way to do that than by blowing up shit? In a Phil Donahue and Ralph Nader military, our bombers will drop flower petals and our missiles will be de-targeted from those non-existent threats of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iraq, and aimed at the real threat to America; the fortune 500 companies. And while you're at it, Phil, how about retargeting some of those big-boom missiles toward the homes of daytime talk show hosts.
The "things that go boom" phrase is classic Donahue. He has been using that line for decades and it exposes his outright hostility to all things military. In a 1988 exchange with Pat Buchanan, Phil said, "You and the Reagan ideologues have spent us into oblivion our children are going to have to pay this bill and you step forward, like some religious figure saying, "more bombs, more bullets."
Phil, I cannot believe that out of 100,000 sperm, you were the quickest. You're garbage, shit, filth, white trash. As is so often the case, you didn't have a clue then as to what you were talking about, and you don't have a clue now. You are living proof that if an imbecile is given a microphone and put in front of a camera, someone somewhere will take them seriously.
Need a clue as to how close to the insane asylum Phil Donahue is? Phil said of Ralph Nader, "I believe he is America's No. 1 private citizen of the 20th century." Okay, Phil, so real heroes like the Wright Brothers, Jonas Salk, Albert Einstein and Edwin Hubble all take a back seat to the guy who became a millionaire destroying the Corvair. These men were true geniuses who through their work changed the entire course of history for the betterment of mankind. And Ralph Nader? If Nader and Donahue had been spreading their special brand of socialism in the early twentieth century they would have attacked the Wright Brother's machine as too dangerous to fly, the polio vaccine as too risky to use, Hubble's research as a waste of money better spent on a single-payer health care system, and the many accomplishments of Albert Einstein would have been ignored as Donahue attacked him for being infatuated with things that go boom.
In 1996, Ralph Nader appeared on the Donahue show, and he and Phil made a big deal about how awful it was that states were given the right to raise speed limits over 55 mph. This is the kind of world Phil Donahue wants: one where a central bureaucracy mandates every decision. It's a one size fits all world in the twisted mind of Phil Donahue. If a 55 mph speed limit is good enough for the crowded corridors of the east coast, then is should be oka for the wide-open plains of the West. What these two want is a world without risk, and a in a world without risk nothing is accomplished.
There is an area, however, where Ralph and I agree but Phil doesn't. Ralph and I believe that some TV shows make childrearing more difficult and that we should support personal responsibility. Donahue is not too keen on personal responsibility, except for those with whom he disagrees.
When Jerry Springer was under attack for the content of his shows, Donahue leapt to his defense, saying that for mainstream media to condemn Springer is a "sad thing." But Phil did draw the line on certain behavior, complaining, "If these things [Springer show's] are rigged, you have a show that is scripted by clever young producers who know how to make excitement by demanding mayhem."
But when a mentally disturbed guest on the Jenny Jones Show whacked another after being misled and manipulated by the show's producers, Phil put the blame on neither the murderer nor the Jenny Jones Show. "This is a homophobic murder," he said. "This isn't about Jenny Jones. This is about homophobiA: we are responsible as Americans to stop the homophobia."
Wait a minute, Phil. Are you telling me that I am responsible for that Jenny Jones guest murdering the other? You mean it wasn't the fact that Jenny Jones' producers lied to the guy about why they were having him on the show? It wasn't the fact that the guy's mental health was marginal, the Jenny Jones Show knew it, and still proceeded to humiliate him on national television for ratings purposes. Do you honestly believe that had this guy not been ambushed on national television and had his sexuality questioned before millions of viewers, he would have still committed murder because of America's homophobia epidemic?
Now don't get me wrong, Phil. I believe in responsibility, and I believe the murderer is responsible for the murder. But I also believe that the Jenny Jones Show is responsible for inciting the situation. And I believe that you, Phil Donahue, bear a great deal of responsibility for the tawdriness of television talk shows, the sensationalism of the evening news, the coarsening of our culture, and the erosion of standards of decency in television programming. So in my book, that puts you damn near the bottom on the list of America's private citizens of the twentieth century. Down there with Ralph Nader, Leopold and Lobe, and the guy who decided the Brady Bunch Variety Show should see the light of day. You suck Phil Donahue, and I long for the day your head goes BOOM!

about lib-dem scum, or what?)

Execute Them All.
Texas used to be one of the very best states in enforcing the death penalty; now they're wimping out by not allowing "mentally retarded" murderers to be juiced. That's a shame and a crime. A quote from an idiot Texas legislator: "It is uncivilized to execute the mentally retarded who don't know right from wrong." Oh really? Executing them will insure that they learn and never do it again. Figures; W leaves and the state goes to hell with the lib-dem filth.
After weeks of "execution drought" in the US, Oklahoma executed a piece of shit on Tuesday who had been convicted of shooting to death a woman for $100,000 that her husband promised, but never paid.

In 1951, President Truman established the CONELRAD [CONtrol of ELectronic RADiation] broadcast system in case of an atomic emergency. These days, CONELRAD is something completely different a site "devoted to ATOMIC CULTURE past and present but without all the distracting and pedantic polemics." This fascinating look at a sobering subject includes dozens of Real Audio clips with advice on what to do when bombs fall; the CONELRAD 100, a list for the atomic-film connoisseurs that features titles like Atom Age Vampire and Day The Earth Stood Still; and Atomic Platters, a sampling of music that celebrates, satirizes, or laments the atomic age. It's an eerie and electrifying slice of postwar atomic culture.
