From the Alcohol, to the Caffeine Economy.
Again, watch, listen, take to heart, and take an action! Whatch this video, and read this site.http://www.thepeoplescube.com/red/viewtopic.php?t=294
Simply the most important internet video on the net at this time. Please comment after veiwing if you please.
Well today is very well the day, where I switch from the Beer standard, to the coffee standard. After all I do actually plan to re-educate myself. But since lately beer has been cheap, and the summer hot it has been easy for me to form the habit of beer being my choice beverage. After all even Icehouse is less expensive than Coke. But it looks like due to state tax increases on beer, and the evil Bush administration the prices on beer are going to return to their Clinton administration prices. Three of the 5000 things I hate about the Clinton adminstion; (1) I made less Money, (2) Payed a higher tax rate, on the less money I made during the Clinton years, then I do now, (3) My cost till now for Icehouse beer is on average 37.5% less under Bush than Clinton. But new price increase is not actually Bush's fault, it's my Socialist-Democratic Governor whom is increasing the taxes. After all if the Democrat party government can't shove more taxes down your throat, then they will seek them up your butt. As is the tax increases for cigaretes, and beer, which is actually a tax on the poor. So for awhile I was not only being taxed less, but even payed less for the brews, if I were a liberal I guess I could blame President Bush for his links to big beer and now big weight loss clinic. But atlas, I'm still independent/neolibertarian.
As for the alcohol economy has been a symbol of waiting. I drank beer when I waited for my mother to die, I drank while I waited for the lawyer to settle the estate. And I drink now today while I wait to gain the nerve to proceed forward.
It is my hope today, that I start the caffeine economy and after I get off this post I will go to buy a good coffee maker, good coffee, and creame. Half/half is my one true weakness with coffee, I can use artificial sweetner but I have to have the half/half. I pledge today instead of making another beer run I will make a coffee run. I must admit, while he really was too much the internationalist, the former president Teddy Roosevelt was a man whom read boooks with desire, and drank a gallon of coffee a day. So I raise my 24oz icehouse to Teddy, and plan to switch my 'beer' drinking times into 'coffee' times. After all if I do indeed plan to re-educate myself so that I can both earn more money and move; then drinking a little less beer is a small price to pay.
Again if only more people would delay, childbirth, and the wild times till they are educated and contributing to the capitalistic way of life, then the disasters of our lives would not be so bad.
Going Personal (Part #1)
I hate to be a bore but this is still important in my eye.http://www.thepeoplescube.com/red/viewtopic.php?t=294
please look at the video, and think. thanks
Over the past recent months I've tried to wash out some of the personal from this site (I did try) and all it became was a reference point. So for the short time I'm going personal. I want to return to having pictures on my site, but by the time I research a topic I'm just too tired to complete it. I will have to return to the dreaded "meme's", and may even try to have an entery which is personal. For I want to be able to make enteries which hopefully make sense, to visit others whom I consider in my orbit, and to reach out to new sites. I just do not have the time to do both.
Over the past month's I have returned to school, I'm trying to repair my household, and seek out just what the hell I'm going to do for money when I have completed my term of service, with my current employer. Also I stayed in centeral North Carolina, to help with the elder care of my mother. As of this year 2005 that obligation has been served to completion. I have only four things which tie me to my present location; my job, my bills, my college education, and the grave of my brother which I've really haven't done a very good job of keeping up. But I do know that the spirit of my deceased brother would tell me "go west, young man, go west", freeing me from forever being a grave tender and foresaking a possible new future for myself. The great news is that I have no wife, girlfriend (of matter), or off spring to leave behind, should I leave. But yes one day barring a possible new love, I would like to prepare myself to move to a new locale before I'm too old. So as you can see I am either stagnant or at a crossroad. But it's up to me to dig my grave, or to shoulder the pack and move forward.
And to end this part, the choice is my own. If I complete my new college education it's up to me, and my time, and my wallet and no one else. After all I'm a single white male, with a job, and an actual taxpayer to boot so that there is hardly a grant for me. And that's how I like it, I just wish that others would do the same. I do not always like my job, nor the pay I earn. But I do not cry to the government for a "living wage", in fact I will live with less, to save the money which buys the education. This will allow me to seek an employer whom will pay a greater wage to which I am earning now, provided that I with my new education become a earning prospect to my new employer. I just wish that others felt the same way, and they could if they would only try. But that means they would have to put in an effort, but liberalism says that they do not have to, that it's the job of the rich taxpayer to keep up the poor. Because it's capitalism, which inslaves the poor in the first place. Only until that wonderful day when the democratic party creates the socialist United States will the poor get justice, and those whom achieved will see will see the efforts of their labor be ground into dust by the poor, as pearls before the swine.
End of Part #1, I got some 'work' to do, and I want to spend some time with tending my field. Besides my sister is comming to town only for the second time since I lived here, and this house is a mess. "Hey I'm a single guy, if you don't like it, to date me is to mop my floor.
Important Video Link
What follows is a link to a very interesting video stream of a Cindy Sheehan event. The surrounding article is also an interesting read. This is one of those things that should be read by all those whom pass here. In fact I will leave this up for a while to help it to circulate.http://www.thepeoplescube.com/red/viewtopic.php?t=294
Moonbats Over Washington
It goes with out saying. This is a must see. It says it all.http://www.thepeoplescube.com/images/Laika_Hillary_Smersh.gif
If I think the days are though now, just wait till later. This is the busiest week in my schedule, and I am doing both the good and the bad to keep it moving. thanks
The Sunday post starts below:
*Not only do I have a busy week, but my Subaru may have snapped it's timing belt, about 45 days earlier than I had the maintence schduled, but it still could be a electrical component. But since it's in the shop, it gets belts anyway. It's like an old AAmco joke I once heard. "only half the cars that come to AAmco need a new transmission." "BUT THEY GET ONE ANYWAY." HA! HA!
**And today is the birthdate of my deceased father; 09-17-1922 to 02-14-1980 "one of the good guys." I think you would have liked him if you would have met him. I know that I am lacking in certain social skills due to his early demise, but I try and learn everyday.**
***Since this is Sunday, and I am between shifts for the third time in two days this is my Sunday entery. Please go and read BlameBush(satire) it's funny, the last few entries have been top notch. They actually make 'sport' of all those whom like to blame our President for all the ills of the world. Go to http://blamebush.typepad.com
or link to the sidebar. I may try to post again, but I've got a letter to the editor of my own paper I want to write, and if I do I will share it here, but I got to research it also, before I write it thanks.
Two different opposing opinions, one is correct and the other not. Here they are.
"No fall of a sparrow on this planet is not attributed to sin and human perfidy. The three current favorites are: (1) global warming, (2) the war in Iraq and (3) taxcuts. Katrina hits and the unholy trinity is immediately invoked to damn sinner-in-chief Geogre W. Bush."-Charles Krauthammer
"Government is the 'solution': If there's an upside to Katrina it's the Republican agenda of taxcuts, Social Security privatization and slashing government programs is over. It maybe too much to predict an upsurge of progressive government, but the environment and issues of poverty, race and class are back on the nations radar screen."-Eleanor Cliff
Why is it that taxsheltered limosine liberals, who cry and moan about the "poor" will not give up a fair-share of their millions?
Old Chunk of Coal
One of the worst things that hit me this week, is that I heard a report on the news about Katrina and genocide. Since I still have limited internet skills, and I'm on a difficult week I could not confirm the information. So I tried to have a entry for Monday but things just did not happen.
Yes Jenny, even I whom have never smoked put the word "it" where the word "if" belonged. Maybe since I started school, have become more critical. I'm glad your blog is back in operation, for those whom do not know Jenny is "The Greek Goddess", and you can link to her blog through the side bar at "It's All Greek to Me".
There will be a new topic on the side bar. I think I'll name it "The Stolen B's" for even when I do not post, or comment I do come by to visit and read the entries of those whom make comments. So next time I see a link to a blog and I like their rebuttal I will bring their link to mine. It seems to me that according to the National Geograhic Channel there is this big Hornet or something that steals worker bees and makes them do their bidding back at their nest. But it could be ants, but anyway the side bar continues to grow with those whom agree, and disagree.
School has started, and my lack of available free time will only get worse should I decide to stay committed to the goal of improving my marketable skills. It will become a drag on my time, and rob me of my fun money. But should I take the challege I will become smarter in working my computer, and how the internet system works. It could lead me to a new career, one that is more pleasant, and enriching. All I have to do is date less, drink less, and commit the time, money and mental effort to change my life. It will be hard work, and difficult, but completing this endeavor might just turn this old lump a coal into a diamond on graduation day. It's up to me, and no one else. Now I'm going to read, hear and listen for a topic.
Reading is FUNdamental.
Sort of hate to stick you with more readings, but school starts today and I've got to get ready. So here are some interesting sites which if I had more time would read and offer comentrary on.http://www.dradams.org/review.htmlhttp://www.townhall.com/columnists/johnstossel/js20050907.shtmlhttp://opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110007219http://www.townhall.com/columnists/billmurchison/bm20050906.shtml
I do hope you will read and enjoy.
A Humorous read, and an Update
The triad region is still waiting for the evacuees, but some have arrived in Charlotte NC
The mayor of Winston-Salem, has made the announcement that 200 housing units will be availible rent free for up to six months, to help the evacuees.
read these information sites to see the democratic party in action;http://www.thepeoplescube.com/red/viewtopic.php?t=263http://federalistpatriot.us/news/depot.asp
Here's a great new site which I will be adding to my great blogs listhttp://nooilforpacifists.blogspot.com/2005/09/hateful-democrats.htmlhttp://nooilforpacifists.blogspot.com/2005/06/cooling-off-period.html
The evacuees are on their way. Even in central North Carolina the local coliseum will become the new temporary home 400+/- evacuees, of which will become new residents. For the lucky ones whom are to be deposited here in this state this is what they have to look forward to. First a decontamination shower, new clothes, an Identification badge with photo will be issued, and a brief detainment at our airport.
Next transport to the Greensboro, NC. coliseum where as I write these words the finishing touches are being made. The army cots are assembled, food tables are set up, and a news/intertainment area (which consists of simple chairs around a stage with a wide screen t.v.).
There will also be more clothes availible, mainly socks, towels, and soap with more on the way.
The other items are as follows, the proper agencies will be conducting interviews to determine the needs of the evacuees; to those whom have children there will be arrangements made for the children of the evacuees to enter our schools. And in time, for the process has allready begun and that is for short/long time housing arrangements. After all some of evauees will only be visiting for a short time, while others will need more time before they are ready to return home. And yes we know that some of the evacuees will want to become citizens of the state of North Carolina, after all we have a lottery now so if the state taxes don't get you the lottery will.
A little history lesson from the little green footballs site.Galveston, Sepember 1900
Looters found despoiling the dead were stood against the nearest wall or pile of debris and shot without hindrance of a trial. The grisly work of collecting the dead continued by torchlight. The workers were issued generous rations of bourbon and strong cigars. They breathed through handkerchiefs soaked in bourbon and smoked cigars to mask the smell.
In the sweltering heat that followed the storm, decomposition was rapid. The bodies soon lost the rigidity of rigor mortis and had to be shoveled into carts. At times the fixed bayonets of the militia were all that kept many of the men at their work. Superintendents of the work gangs were finally given permission to torch the wreckage wherever found rather than try to extricate pieces of flesh from the ruins and cart them away.
"It was like living in a battlefield. The fuel-oil smoke hung over the city, day and night, and the heavy air was never free of the smell of carbolic acid, of lime, of putrefaction."
-Death from the Sea: The Galveston Hurricane of 1900, Herbert Molloy Mason, Jr.
Looters found despoiling the dead were summarily executed by the militia - stood against the nearest wall or pile of debris and shot without the hindrance of a trial. The same brutal justice was delivered to amateur photographers. "Word received form Galveston today indicates that Kodak fiends are being shot down like thieves. Two, it is stated, were killed yesterday while taking pictures of nude female bodies."
-Dallas News, September 14, 1900.
While driving throughout my town on Saturday I took notice of something interesting. In the midst of complaining and crying about high gas prices ($2.99-3.39 per gal. reg). There are still plenty of people lined up with cars idling around the fast food drive throughs. It's apparently easy to complain about the "evil oil corporations", but difficult to park and go in to place your order. But that would require them to get off their butts to help themselves, say no more.
Do to recent events I've found it difficult to make entries. I am hopefully going to be making changes to improve my condition, the process will take time but when completed I will be the better for it.
With that being said, the gulf coast states need our prayers and our aid if we are able to give it. And at this time we should try to have understanding when our cost of living increase. And when I return to blogging I will try to practice what I've preached. I just hope we have all learned from this example, and not one of us is immune from making changes in our lives. thanks.
A little piece of Boortz
This was in nealz nuze on 8/29/05, it seemed good enough for me to bring it to you.
The media is fond of reminding us that no Weapons of Mass Destruction were ever found in Iraq. This hs been the clarion call of the Democrats for a couple of years now. However, did you know that WMD were found in Iraq? Not just a couple...but lots of them. A mother who lost her son in Iraq was interviewed on Fox News had this to say: "I have seen photos of entire fighter jets buried in the sand. I have seen picturess of entire caches of weapons that just my son's unit would uncover." I wonder why we never hear much about that one? Here's also a nice little list of what was found:
- 500 tons...that's right...TONS...make that 1 million pounds of yellow cake uranium. It was found as Saddam's nuclear weapons facility (yup...he had one of those too.)
- 1.8 tons of partially enriched uranium found at the same place. You know, the stuff you neeed to make nukes.
- Hidden centrifuge parts and blueprints.
- Two dozen artillery shells loaded with Sarin and mustard gas.
Sounds like WMD to me! You may want to print this off and impress your friends with your knowledge.
That I have done, again this comes from nealz nuze as of 8/29/05. I thank Neal Boortz for the information. Please link to the site from my side bar.
From a personal note, it seems lately that I am getting a chance to make some very important changes in my life. If I am successful they will be very positive changes. But the tasks I have to undertake will take years to complete, and as long as I do not loose my way this site and my readers will be along for the ride. thanks!
A little something from the Internet.
Found this on my control desk at work this morning.
Question: How do you tell the difference between Democrats, Republicans and Southern Independents?
The answer can be found by posing the following question:
You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock cal .40, and you are an expert shot; you have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
What do you do?
Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor! Or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
What does the law say about this situation?
Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does it sent to society and to my children?
Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?
We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day( I wonder myself is this huff the paint, and smoke the weed) and make this happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for few days and try to come to a consensus.
Southern Independent's Answer: ( likewise this independent/neolibertarian)
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click....(sounds of reloading)
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click
Daughter: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?"
Sums it up very well. The above is floating free on the internet, and the e-mail stream so perhaps you have read it, if not I am glad to bring it to you. Thanks.
CH, CH, Changes?
I want to thank everybody whom left nice comments while I was in my silence. I still maybe less prolific than I once was for awhile, but it's for a good cause.
In a couple weeks I will be returning to school. I going to start slow with night courses. First computer courses so that I can learn how to learn to work this beast. So for the next few months I will have my third-shift job, come home to sleep, wake up in the afternoon and prepare for class. M-Th, and a couple Saturdays too! If I find that I can still learn then I plan to enter the Photographic Technology Program, if I have a talent, it seems to be photography. I think that commercial/photojournalism interests me the most, but I may change based on employment.
The next item on my mind is over the past few years I've had been occupied with my mother's last years, and then the closing of her estate, which was completed this year. The result being is that my house has fallen into disorder, and now needs to be repaired. I have started this project along with my reeducation, while it will cause me great changes in my personal time I feel as though they go hand in hand.
Also it's just been a hard time over all. Transitions at work, and with three of the houses being for sale/rent next to me the day time traffic is cutting into my sleep time. Everything seems to change around me, just as soon as I begin to work on myself. This is enough for now even though it actually been even a odd time, some actual excitement. But I will leave you with this I have a new neighbor moving in, and she seems to be single and cute. hmm! the possibilities.
I've tried twice to make an entry, and I can't. Well actually tried over 20 times over the past couple weeks. I just can't turn news topics into a report with commentary from my perspective. I look forward to the day when I can return. The oringinal title for this entry was "returns." The next entry will more than likely be more personal, for I have something to say. Most of it will mainly be good, but it's time for me to return to "work." More later.
Between being ill last week, a more active personal business schedule I've found it hard to find the time to work the blog. I also registered for night classes starting in September which will cause me to change my sleeping/blogging times also.
Read the Boortz Book! It's a Fair tax!
Mr.V, check your E-mail I moved the color post to it. Today is the day! Neal Boortz & Congressman John Linder's book the "Fair Tax" book is ready for all of us to purchase.
More to Offer Sidebar

As I aquire new contacts frome 'BE' or othersources I will try to add them soon after I recieve them that way it won't take a day of time. There is something to be read in all of them, for they either picked me for Blogmarking, or I them so please visit them if you like.
