Every so often, a case of raging idiocy overtakes the Nation. Last Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell 207 points. On Monday, it fell another 135 points. On Tuesday, the Fed cut interest rates a half-point, and the market fell 238 points. On Wednesday, the market fell yet another 233 points. And last Thursday, after diving toward an intraday low of nearly 300 points, the DJIA finished the day off merely 97 points. So what, you say? The US Congress, comprised of more criminals, lowlifes, scumbags and degenerates as a percentage than the US population as a whole, is playing games with meaningless Bills and Resolutions, while the economy and stock market both tank. (Of the 535 435 Reps, 100 Sens people who make up the US Congress, 29 have been accused of spousal abuse, 7 have been arrested for fraud, 19 have been accused of writing bad checks, 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses, 3 have done time for assault, 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit, 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges, 8 have been arrested for shoplifting, 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits, and 84 have been arrested for drunk driving last year.) And the shit-for-brains Fed Chief, Alan Greenspan, is playing with himself instead of minding the money market; considering the scuzzed-out, old liberal hag he's married to, that's not surprising. The people who could most directly affect the US Economy, are doing nothing worthwhile. Actually, none of it's surprising, considering the worthless miscreants involved in this laughable national scenario. It is also quite probable that no one in the current congressional generation actually knows what fiscal policy is. The doltish members of Congress, especially Republicans, will say that criticism such as this is unfair, that they are doing the best they can inside difficult political constraints. But we are nonetheless given to understand that if there is a political consensus about any economic matter now it is that the economy needs stimulus, a jolt from its evident doldrums. The plain fact is that nothing Congress is doing right now nothing is in the least bit stimulative. It is akin to being in a deep coma.

Around The Garden Center.
I can tell that Spring's just around the proverbial corner: emails from gardeners all over the World are increasing daily. During the "gardening season", I average 300-500/ week; during the Winter months, a mere 20-30/ week come in. I spend a lot of time researching their problem(s) and writing back. About 10% "bounce" back due to a faulty email address, and that's frustrating after doing the work for them.
Saturday evening, I cheffed a 6-course dinner for Jeff & Denise at my condo; Denise pitched-in with the extensive prep work I was late getting home from work due to many the walk-in customers and it turned out awesome. Jeff brought several bottles of Zinfandel along from his 500-bottle cellar reserve. I, of course, had plenty of Sebastiani Cab on hand.
On Sunday, even though we're "still closed" but starting Spring-Summer-Fall Hours next weekend, I had two landscape appointments in Maryland, so in addition to driving to the Garden Center Complex to feed Pickles and do some paperwork, I spent some serious time on the road visiting customer sites. I prepared the landscape estimates in MS-Excel and mailed them to the customers within 24hrs, as usual.
One of the editorial staff of Grower Talks Magazine, a trade publication, emailed me over the weekend, wanting to do an interview for Summer publication. She had read one of my ads,You Do Get What You Pay For, and wanted to "discuss what retailers and wholesaler-growers could do to make Fall a more profitable season" for all of the industry. I said sure, I'd once again be glad to help raise the bar. If they post it on their website, I'll put a link up in here and also on the Reviews page.
Although the York (PA) area is 3-4 weeks behind DC in Spring conditions, buds on many flowering trees are beginning to swell. I'm sooooo ready for Spring, after this brutally cold Winter.
I took Thursday off and slept-in until 10am. I haven't taken any days off in 5 or 6 weeks, so my "list of stuff" was burgeoning. Food shopping for Becky's belated she turned 50 on March 28th Sunday Birthday Dinner, clothes shopping, condo projects et al; I got them done. Now it's back to work as the Spring-Summer-Fall Hours kick-in with long days and weekends.

Our Government: Too Big, Too Much.
Insight Magazine published a recent report from the Institute for Policy Information showing that the U.S. government is now "the most expensive government in world history." According to the study's author, Stephen Moore, the federal government "will spend more money in just this single year than it spent combined from 1781 to 1900, even adjusting for inflation."
The report also reveals, "In 1800, federal government spending equaled $20 per person. This year the figure was $6,500" It also stated, "In 1999, the average family paid about $27,200 in taxes. Just since the 1950's the average household tax bill has increased fourfold in real terms."
Comparing percentage of income absconded by the federal government, the report states, "In the 1920's, the federal government took 5 percent of national income. Today, it takes between 20 and 25 percent."
Comparing percentage of income absconded by the federal government, the report states, "In the 1920's, the federal government took 5 percent of national income. Today, it takes between 20 and 25 percent."
While these figures may be hard to grasp, even harder to understand is the indifference and apathy to such tyranny by the American people! Have we forgotten the familiar truism that freedom vanishes to the proportion that government grows? It appears we have.
In our desire to have government become our benefactor and sustainer, we have allowed it to become our taskmaster and overlord. As a result, we have become little more than well-fed, well-entertained slaves to the state. Freedom, as envisioned by our forefathers, is gone.
Hundreds of alphabet bureaucracies track and control every aspect of our lives. They regulate our banking, our commerce, even our parenting and worship. There is no area of our lives that is not monitored and mastered by their ubiquitous tentacles. Everything from how many gallons of water our toilets flush to how much cash we are allowed to carry is held captive to their ever-encroaching oversight.
There are enough criminal statues on the federal registry to make felons out of every person in the United States. And much of this oppression is permitted under the guise of "fighting drugs." In truth, however, these draconian dictates have done little to curb the drug traffic, but they have smothered freedom in this country and made federal criminals out of thousands of honest citizens.
So, how much is too much; how big is too big? When will Americans tire of this mushrooming of government and decide to return this nation to the fundamental principles of limited government and personal liberty? Or, have we already passed the point of no return?
In this case, yes. Here's how the Government has interferred in and perverted our lives: read this abomination. I'd do the same thing as he's done. Challenge the corrupt and twisted system, and persevere to win. Whatever it takes to maintain our individual freedoms.

Lib-Dem Lowlife Filth.
Listen to the criminal bitch disgraced current senator from NY call W names. Hitlery Rotten Clintoon, the f*cked-up lowlife lib-democRAT dogf*cking scumbagette, has no room to talk about morals, what's right for others or what should be done for America. The f*cked-up liberal filth in NYC voted the degenerate bitch into office, and they'll have to endure the horror of that loud-mouthed socialist cretin, unless John Hinckley or Sirhan Sirhan were let loose. I'd vote for that.
Who the hell would believe a poll taken by two lib-democRAT organizations The Washington Post and ABCNews which says America is growing dissatisfied with W? Certainly not I, and certainly no one else with a functioning brain. These two organizations were disgraced ex-president Bubba Jeffy "The Liar" Clintoon's greatest apologists and defenders during those 8 horrible disastrous awful terrible sleazy years.
Like the proverbial turd floating in the toilet which won't flush away, disgraced ex-president Bubba Jeffy "The Liar" Clintoon's scandals keep rearing their ugly heads. Here's a new one: In the last days of the Clinton administration, two appointees in the Bureau of Indian Affairs breathed new life into petitions from American-Indian groups seeking the status of "federal recognition," a necessary step to earning the right to open lucrative gaming venues. Lawyers familiar with the case say that no one appears to have violated the "teeth" of the law, however Connecticut's Democratic attorney general is calling for an investigation and raising new questions. Same-o, same-o sleaze we've had for the past 8 years, isn't it?
Think I'm being too hard on the Clintoon moron? Read about how he sold out America to the stinking Red Chi-Comm filth. And about how W is gonna "fix" that soon.
Sens Boxer-slut-riddled-AIDS-whore, Biden-plagiaist-liar-coward, Leahy-lowlife-shithead-pervert? All moron scum who've been sucking at the American Bar association's (ABA) money teat for many years. And they're opposing W's decision to rid the civilized world of the lib-democRAT ABA filth. f*ck this human garbage, W.
Another deadbeat US Senator bitch: Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), the former dot-com executive who spent $10 million she didn't have to win her seat. Her personal $40mm fortune went bye-bye when the stock market tanked, and she's in default of all bills. Put the f*cking lowlife lib-dem bitch in prison, where the crimial slut belongs. No one should have any sympathy for her.

Degenerates, Lowlifes and Deviates.
The closest I ever want to come to the lowlife, slimy, subhuman liberal shitfilth from Hollywood, is to read about them getting crushed and whacked in an accident. I love it; unfortunately, these were worker-bees, and didn't deserve what happened to them. It should have maimed and whacked the Baldwin trash, Bassinger slut, O'Donnel moron, Madonna whore, Mahler moron, et al. None deserve to reproduce; abortion for their so-called progeny is mandatory. They are subhuman, degenerate, deviate slime.
The Bush White House Thursday formally ended the ABA's (American Bar association) role as an early arbiter of the qualifications for nominees to the federal bench and the Supreme Court. Good going, W. The lib-dem ABA is full of lowlife slimeball liberals, socialists and communists.
Don't think there's a liberal bias in the national newsrooms full of degenerate, deviate homos? Read this story. And this story. There, that should set the issue to reast, permanently.
Is this f*cked-up or what? A hospital worker who was fired from her job because her obsessive primping and dressing rituals made her repeatedly late has won another chance to make her case in court. The bitch is a psycho, not a disability case from disease. She belongs in a psych ward at her insurance company's expense, not the US Taxpayers' on heavy medication. She's a headcase! The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals the most f*cked-up cabal of liberal filth in America needs to be replaced ASAP.
Speaking of liberal filth, the Oscar Ceremony would be a great place to turn Timmy "OKC Bomber" McVeigh loose on. Think of all the subhuman trash which could be obliterated in one fell swoop. All the subhuman, lowlife, homo-dyke trash are wondering: Will "Gladiator" triumph? Or will that "Tiger" crouching nearby slay the box-office ruler? Will the sluttish Julia Roberts win her first Oscar? Will the idiot Tom Hanks be the first to win three lead actor Oscars? Will the talentless Russell Crowe bring his "best homo friend" to the ceremony? Who the f*ck cares? They're all dogshit lowlife subhuman liberal scumbags. Drop the bomb, TM. Whoosh-BAM!, ALL the filth is gone! Lights! Camera! (Lib-DemocRAT) morons!
It's amazing that blacks worship criminals like the disgraced ex-president Bubba Jeffy Clintoon and the lowlife race-baiting mirsery profiteer scumbag Irrev Jesse "Who's Your Daddy?" Jack-scum, without question. Are they really that f*cking stupid? Apparently so. I can't believe that all blacks do; perhaps it's only the lowlifess who do.
Read what an economic blackmailing racist Irrev Commie Jesse "Who's Your Daddy?" Jack-scum really is to corporate America, and how dumb that white trash has been to give the lowlife money. They deserve each other.
Like father, like son (of a bitch). Jesse "Are You My Daddy?" Jack-scum Jr is a lowlife piece of shit, hiding income from Jack-scum Sr's sham racist blackmailing businesses.
Think I'm being too hard on the racist shakedown bigot criminal Jack-scums? Read this about their shakedown history of stupid white trash businesses. Those two lowlifes should be in prison for felony blackmail and extortion.
Finally, a judge with a functioning brain: A non-liberal federal judge Tuesday declared admission standards unconstitutional at the University of Michigan law school because they use race as a factor in judging applicants.

Richly Deserving Execution.
Two subhuman homo filth, who raped and murdered a 13 year old boy, are probably only going to get "life in prison" for that heinous crime. The nice thing is that most of those lowlife white trash scum are themselves murdered in prison by other murderers.
This is a waste of US Taxpayer Dollars: lowlife, subhuman murderous filth living behind bars, to the tune of $60-70,000 per year per inmate scumbag, minimum. Far, far better to execute the convicted and condemned than spend additional monies on their murderous carcasses. I'd gladly shoot each in the skull with a .9mm or .357 Magnum round. And deeply enjoy it, and sleep like a baby at night. ZZZZZZZ. C'mon warden, gimme a shot at it...
Here's a piece of subhuman shit Bobby Lee Holmes, 29 who needs execution for the '89 rape and beating death of 86 year old Mary Stewart. I'd personally like to pull the switch.
Not executing the "mentally retarded" is absurd. They had the "mind" to murder or rape; they should get the death penalty applied equally under Law. Cruel and unusual punishment for the subhuman murderer? I don't f*cking think so! The victim is still dead. How "cruel and unusual" was the rape and murder? The US Supreme Court needs to end this liberal shyster lawyer dodge for murderers quickly. Johnny Penry and all such filth need to die. But the shithead US Supreme Court thinks otherwise; they're gonna review the '88 law and perhaps overturn it and let murderous filth live. Time to change the Court.
Child pornographers and molesters? Execute them too.
This piece of white trash shit deserved the death penalty rather than life in prison. I hate white supremacists of all stripes. Just another piece of subhuman garbage the US Taxpayers have to support indefinitely.
Of course the Hanssen FBI traitor should get the death penalty, and be executed promptly. Along with murder, rape and child molestation, I find treason most detestable and a worthy capital offense. A bullet in the head would suffice.

Interior Desecrators.
VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED: The following website contains graphic content. It features glaring, full-color stills from one of the most notorious publications in existence, 1975's "The Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book". This isn't pretty: mustard and orange throw rugs, white leather chaise lounges, putty beige bedroom schemes, gold foil wallpaper, and, well....this. As your brave host observes, "It was a breathtakingly ugly period, and the proof's here, over and over and over again."
