Today we have the first of many Norther’s of the season bringing cold air to us from up in America. The temperature is supposed to go down to 78° today!


The paragraph below is quoted from an FKAA reply to a letter of inquiry from an Eden Pines resident. Note the last line! Do not think you are off the grinder pump hook just because they said so! It sounds as if it may all be a con job to keep you quiet until they stick it to you.

“The Eden Pines subdivision is one of the areas the County Commission decided to include in the change from lower pressure sewer to gravity. However, I caution that these areas identified by the County still need to be redesigned and priced by the contractor. This pricing will still need to come in favorable for the change to materialize.”

Keep it simple for them by demanding the elimination of all unwelcome grinder pumps on private property. They do not need to be individual pumps (one pump can handle several homes), and they certainly do not need to be on your lot. Calling your representatives is great. Here is an online petition to put it in writing, too. Petition

The last statue in a series of sculptures titled “The Miraculous Journey” by British artist Damien Hirst that was installed earlier in the week at the entrance to the Sidra Medical and Research Center in Doha, following the unveiling of his latest work in the Qatari capital. Commissioned by Qatar’s royal family – a long standing collector – for a reported 20 million dollars, the installation of artworks depicting the human form, which is banned under some interpretation of Islam, has caused controversy amongst conservative Muslims.

[Do you want a new sewer Mister?] No one, at any time came to my home and asked me if I wanted a new sewer system for my home. No one sent me a letter asking me if I wanted a new sewer system for my home. All I know is that this sewer scam is being shoved down my throat. Who’s idea was it to begin with this sewer concept? Was there ever a town hall meeting in which we had a vote to go ahead with this sewer plan? If there was, did the residents of Monroe County vote in favor of this sewer plan?

Because, if this didn’t take place, then who the hell are they to make this decision for us, and then force us to have to pay good money, that most of us don’t have? What if we all decide not to pay for the sewer hookups to our homes? What are they going to do? Are they going to fine us? What if we all refuse to pay the fines? Are they going to take our homes away, or take us all to jail? I say, enough is enough!

We need to really think about this. It’s time to clean house on all politicians. Even our local ones. It seems that they come up with the most inconsiderate ideas, and then we’re the ones who have to pay for it. Just like this $24 billion hole we’re in because of their government shutdown. Who do you think is going to end up getting stuck with paying for that tab? Yet it was their decision, right? If it was the decision of the County or State to go ahead with the sewer system, then they should pay for it.

Isn’t this sewer scam also going to raise all of our monthly water rates too? What about the road repairs after the sewer-lines are buried? It seems that we will be spending money we don’t have, and in return, we really don’t benefit from anything. The only ones benefiting from this (stuffing their pockets) are the people in charge, the contractors and the water dept. Just like always. Why don’t we hire a private attorney to fight this scam on our behalf? We can all contribute some out of pocket cash and hire this attorney. If we continue to let them mandate to us, what will be next? They are supposed to work for us. Does anyone agree with me? 


If you can’t fix it with a hammer, you’ve got an electrical problem!

[Circumcision] A long time ago Jews didn’t know about cleanliness so males didn’t wash under their foreskins. Their thingys got infected so the head Jews decreed that all males would be circumcised. That ended the infections. That’s why Jews snip the end off of boy’s thingy even though they know about cleanliness now. It’s a stupid and ignorant custom to mutilate anyone for superstitious or traditional reasons. There is no point to the practice except superstition. You don’t get any spiritual benefit by being  mutilated.

I had a beehive on the side of my house and I called the bee guy who used to advertise here, but he wouldn’t come look at it (even though it’s right near his house) and he wouldn’t give me a price to remove it either. He wanted me to buy a pig in a poke. I called the Miami bee people and they said they just kill the bees. So that’s what I did. I went to Winn Dixie and bought a $5 can of hornet spray and the hive was gone in 10 minutes.

I didn’t want to kill them, but I didn’t want to be at the mercy of someone who wouldn’t give me a price or come look at the hive. It’s too bad we now have one less hive in the Keys.

If all of us old farts have all of the money, then let us try to elect someone who might be near honest and not be after feathering their own nests.

an_to-goWe’ve been doing business with China Garden for over 12 years through dine in, delivery, or take out. Our recent experiences (last 6/8 mos.) have been less than desirable. Last evening on our way back to town from a trip, I called for pick up. It seems taking the order is an issue. The food was ready as promised. The food was the worst I have ever had. Chicken was certainly left over, reheated, bland (when I asked for spicy) and some bites tasted spoiled. We threw it all out. Worst is that if I called to complain, it seems no one would care. Bad experience. Not again.

Grinder Pump Petition, Thanks to the Editor for letting us put the petition online. Please sign. We still have a lot of work to do. Petition

[Alians] I recently had, what I consider to be a very upsetting conversation with an immigration attorney I know.  He indicated that the 11 million figure being bandied about as the number of illegal aliens in the U.S. isn’t even close to being correct.  According to him, 11 million is the number of illegal aliens who have filed IRS I-10 forms to get a taxpayer identification number, i.e. that portion of the total number who are working above board, declaring their income, and paying taxes.  He estimates the real number of illegals to be closer to 25 million which would include the dependents of the above as well as those working for cash in the underground economy who don’t pay any taxes. Frightening! 


[Honey and Cinnamon to Cure Colds] Did you know that a teaspoon of honey (local – raw is best) and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon will usually knock out a cold within a day or two? Take twice a day for 3 days for best results. Both honey and cinnamon are antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. Also knocks bladder/kidney infections, reduces sugar levels, blood pressure and acts as a pain reliever for arthritis.

Capt. Doom & Gloom went to the foot doctor. How much is he charging you to remove it from your mouth? What kind of “meet” was that indeed!

[Mistrust Abounds] The Cudjoe Wastewater area is the last to be serviced because we do not have enough business in this area to line the pockets of our county Commissioners. Mr. Nugent has be on the commission for at least 15 of the past 20 years sewers have been on the table. He and all the other commissioners already have sewers. There is no sympathy there. He is coming out smelling like a rose as he folded, over the Cudjoe Key grinder pump issue. Must be an election in the near future.

I called my old hometown, that was putting in sewers almost 30 years ago, as I wanted some data on grinder pumps. I told them that I grew up there and was wondering how it worked with them. They told me that they have no grinder pumps in the whole district which is quite large, but condensed. He asked me where I was calling from and I said FL. He said, “You must be in the Keys.”

They know about our fiasco 1500 miles away. He did say that one reason they do not have grinder pumps is that they have some pipes 40 feet deep in the ground, which helps the gravity system.

Has Ms. Murphy informed us on how many grinder pumps are used in her district?

[I Told You so] I see many of the democrats are joining the republicans that wanted Obamacare postponed for a year.I see over 60% of Americans feel Obamacare is a joke. I see the most unqualified, inept,incompetent administration is working day and night to spin this as a glitch. Americans are becoming very aware that government is not capable of running our health care. I also understand the that the Supreme Court of the U.S. of A. will be hearing several cases on the constitutionality of Obama care. I also see the Tea Party worked very hard to warn America that is would happen.

Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job. Link

Thanks for the information concerning “foresight”. I don’t think its only a Liberals issue however does the term “There will be parades in Iraq for our President” sound familiar? That foresight was brought forth well before the war even took shape.

The right is every bit as myopic as any Liberal on the planet. They just don’t have the ability to admit it.

[“Zealous about telling us how the Tea Party”] Nothing zealous about it. Don’t count the Tea Party out is all that was shared. Less Government, smaller Government, less taxes, cut spending & balance the budget. That’s what the Tea Party stands for. Not bad stuff at all. Unless you’re a socialist.

The-Left-FieldOur left fielders really should pay more attention to the truth than to the leftist propaganda of MSNBC. On Wednesday a poster echoed MSNBC’s suggestion that only a few vets had showed up for the “Million Vet” march on 10/13.  It’s true that that there were not millions of vets attending, but thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of vets did. There is an interesting article concerning the march to be found at Link 

Wednesday’s poster also stated that the Million Vet march was the handiwork of the Tea Party. The poster was either purposefully lying or was simply too dull to check the facts. The organizers of the march, spoke out against Cruz, et al, for interfering with the message of the vets. Link

The 10/13 Million Vet march was not a Tea Party event, it was an event by and for vets.  It was well attended.

The media and the left have done all in their considerable power to vilify and denigrate the Tea Party thinkers. I consider myself a Republican, a Republican with deeper conservative values than some.  What follows is a compilation of what this Olde Fart believes to be the principles of the Tea Party. Our government has grown too big and too intrusive, it must be reined in and downsized. Congress must not pass any law that exempts themselves from its provisions.
1.   Our government is the servant of those who are governed. There should be no career politicians, each and every elected government official should be term limited.
2.    We must curtail our spending, we must find a path back to a balanced budget.
3.    The Second Amendment is as sacrosanct as any of the other 10 Amendments to our Constitution that make up our Bill of Rights.
4.    The government’s first and most important role is to guarantee our national security.
5.    In order to return to prosperity, we must cut business and personal income taxes. We must redistribute not wealth but the knowledge, skills, and ambition that it takes to produce wealth. History is full of examples of regimes attempting to redistribute wealth, but resulted in only redistributing poverty.
6.    We must secure our borders. English should be our national language.
7.    We must promote the personal and family values that enabled us to become a great nation. Personal responsibility must be promoted.  We must facilitate and promote free enterprise.
8.    We must hew to our founders beliefs that while no one is guaranteed “success”, everyone is guaranteed the right to strive to succeed to the limits of their ability and their ambition.
9.   We must provide a societal safety net for those few Americans who are unable to properly care for themselves.

October 22, 2013: “Florida Blue is terminating about 300k policies in Florida alone. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent termination notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state.  Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent.” Link

The easiest way to tell if Obama is lying is to watch his lips, if their moving, he’s lying. Many Democrats/Progressives/Liberals are operating with pure motives, but the seeds that they sow are evil.

The CT left fielders should really be as pissed about the Obamacare roll out as are many of the Congressional Democrats. Link
