poverty of the soul

there's always an innocuous clue that something's about to happen; telltale signs, albeit slight, warn of impending change. In America, our clue was the misguided '92 election in which voters mistakenly elected a lowlife criminal from Arkansas, named Bubba Jeffy Clintoon, to a 4-year term, and then re-elected the same piece of detritus and his socialist-communist wife, Hitlery Rotten Clintoon, to another 4-year term. Decay of our Nation's moral and social fabric set-in during those eight terrible criminal years, and it is going to take more than a generation to recoup what we lost, both spiritually and nationally. But as Americans, we've been through worse, and we'll persevere and be better for it. Here's hoping that the next egg-throwing protestor uses something much more powerful than a mere egg, next time. A hand grenade large rock comes to mind almost immediately.

Around The Garden Center.
Drought Watch: last weekend was cooler and featured a few scattered showers and thunderstorms just to the south; much welcomed down there I'm sure, but not enough to alleviate the drought we're currently enduring up here. Customer traffic was heavy on both Saturday and Sunday, despite the weather 'tis the season, afterall and I upset a few people in refusing to allow them or myself to go outside during a brief lightening episode, holding metal-shaffed umbrellas. Somehow, they didn't think anything of the safety aspects; I flagged that situation immediately. Better safe and alive, than sorry and dead.
Gas prices in the York (PA) area have flattened, at least for the time being. I paid $1.79.9/ gal (89 octane) last week and it seems to be holding steady, for now. W & Co says prices will begin to drop after Memorial Day, but that remains to be seen. Send me an email and let me know what it's like in your area. I'm trying to compile a "misery index".
On Monday morning at 6:30am, I discovered that someone had illegally entered the 20-acre Garden Center Complex sometime after 6pm, Sunday when I closed up, had loaded 5 large Azaleas and 3 Specimen Cutleaf Japanese Maples into a pick-up truck, slashed the poly (plastic film) on the four 30' x 100' Retail Greenhouse doors, and left. The township police officer he and his wife are also water garden customers of mine did the initial investigation and follow-up reports. Combined plant material losses, with labor to repair the four doors, will be over $1000. Sure wish I'd have been here with my .357 Magnum and 9mm when it occurred; I'd have whacked them in a heartbeat.
It rained from Monday through Tuesday night. Rain, gloooooooorious rain, has temporarily ended over 4+ weeks of drought. We're still 8-10" low on ground moisture, but we'll take what we can get. The crews couldn't work in the mud and I had to re-schedule several large landscape jobs and many small-to-medium landscape maintenance jobs, but did so gladly.
I took Wednesday off, instead of my occasional Thursday; I wasn't feeling 100% and felt it'd be better to "re-group" on a off day and come back to work in a more rested state. My sec't re-scheduled my appointments, I slept in 'til 11am, went food shopping and did some small projects around the condo. Temps were in the upper 70s, clear blue sky and moderate humdidity. All in all, a nice day to be out of the Garden Center and rest-up.
Yeah sure, I remember days like this, but they're distant memories now. I use blood pressure medicine now to get and keep it under control.
For over a week, I've had a running email battle with a York Daily Record reporter named Michele, about the use of "Black Power" v "White Power" rants of the 60s and 70s, in a story she wrote. York (PA) had unfortunate race riots in '69 and many blacks used "Black Power" definitely a racist slogan as their mantra. It's as racist as "White Power", but the ydr.com reporter couldn't understand why. Methinks she really meant "Black Empowerment", but was duly embarrassed when I called her on it. We spent days arguing via email, to no avail. She's a brain-washed, "pc" lib-democRAT who'll never consider the reality of the historical facts; merely what she wants her article to amount to in a reader's eyes. The future of American journalism in York is in serious doubt, based upon my observations of her disgenuous style of reporting.
Another InterNet lie exposed. Good going, Feds.
Upon arriving at my office early Thursday morning, there was a huge pile of paperwork on my desk, more than usual. Over 30 phone calls to return, landscape jobs to reconcile and bill out, landscape maintenance jobs to bill out and plenty of miscellaneous problems which needed my attention. No wonder I hate taking any time off; there's always a "mess on my desk" when I return.
In a bleak week of otherwise awful lousy news, here's a bright spot that can make any grumpy individual smile.

Lib-democRAT Lowlife Scumbags.
Hey, guess what alcoholic sleazoid criminalis back in the news? Ol' shaky Janet "Waco" El Reno! And the criminal bitch is "thinking" about running for Florida's governorship. Imagine that. After the Cuban kid kidnapping last Easter at gunpoint, I don't think the lowlife criminal murderer can count on any Cuban American support, do you?
Old shit for brains, incompetent ex-president Jimmy Carter opined last week that W's energy plan was a fraud; actually Carter's so badly misinformed that he got few facts correct in his so-called editorial. Everyone's laughing at him, again.
No, I haven't changed my mind; I still have no sympathy for all those morons in California who claim they're having a "crisis". They aren't; they're just stupidly controlled by environmental wacko scumbags and the "problem" is of their own making.
Yale University, once considered an upper class Ivy League University, is now dogshit: disgraced, criminal current-sen and ex-first lady slut dyke, Hitlery Rotten Clintoon, spoke at its graduation event. The lowlife criminal bitch berated students for not becoming a commie-socialist-terrorist supporter, as she has. Clintoon's clearly deserving of a late term abortion, whatever her age, and ridding the US and World of her ignoble presence.
Perhaps the worst racist lowlife bigoted filth in America, fat stupid Irrev Al "interloper Jew scum" Sharp-scum, is thinking he has no functioning brain, so this is an oxymoron of running for president in 2004. Her's a fake, fraud and a criminal with a degree from the "Close Cover Before Striking School of Heavy Machinery and Divinity" School.
How obstructionist democRATs got away with holding-up the Tax Cut is beyond me. Their constituents should have tarred and feathered the scumbags lib-dems, or at least voted the filth outta office in 2002.
The second worst racist lowlife bigoted criminal filth in America, the Irrev Jesse "Hynietown" Jack-scum, is at it again: calling Toyota's ad campaign "racist". And they'll probably bend over, instead of telling that black to hit the road, scumbag.

The Screwed-Up US Government.
Unable to get any of the 500 senior appointments confirmed so far, W's GOP Government is in big trouble. The confirmation process is so flawed it needs a deep and fundamental change.
Israel should do whatever it wants to do: annihilate the lowlife filthy subhuman towelhead Palenstinian shitfilth. I'd give the "order" in a heartbeat, if I were Sharon.
Two lowlife scumbag lib-democRAT lawmakers introduced bills on Tuesday in the U.S. Congress to ban the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-New York and Sen. Jon Corzine, D-New Jersey, are trying to legislate our behavior. Next, banning coffee cups while driving. Then, banning drive-in take-out burgers and fries in cars. Then, banning smoking while driving. This is one more instance where the federal government is encouraged to meddle in individual citizen's lives; also called socialism and communism.

Lowlifes, Scumbags & Degenerates.
Only in a lowlife, filthy towelhead country like India could the "Monkey Man" get away with this kind of behavior; over here, we'd have long ago hunted the scumbag down and hung him or it, whichever.
Jeeeez, the lowlife lardass fat tramp is back: Monica Lewinsky wants her DNA-stained blue dress back so she can auction it off on E-Bay. Pathetic slut that she is, she can't make an honest living without a gimmick, and the sperm-stained GAP dress is her ticket to financial freedom.
How many extra chances does this white trash piece of garbage, Robert Downey Jr, get before he's locked away as he should be? There are thousands hundreds of thousands of people who were caught with less than him and never given 5 more chances to get it right, and they're doing hard time.

Execute The Subhuman Filth.
Hmmmmm, abortion cuts crime for future generations? Interesting hypothesis. Actually, I'd prefer the increased use of the death penalty and greatly increased executions.
I love this lady! This should happen to every criminal.
Though I abhor their political philosophy and military goals, the Chi-Comms are right on the money when it to capital punishment.

BMW Films.
Wow. Art and commerce give each other a hearty bear hug in this hybrid promotional effort from BMW. The German automobile company has enlisted the talents of big name directors John Frankenheimer, Ang Lee, Wong Kar-Wai, Guy Ritchie, and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Amores Perros), to make five short films that prominently feature their cars. Our hero is Clive Owen (from Croupier, and who has to be a strong contender for the next James Bond) who outwits gun-toting thugs in his trusty silver 540i. Five car chase scenes from five hip film directors. What more could you ask?
