jane26I am Vietnam vet. Jane Fonda sat on a gun used to shoot down Americans. Enough said on that subject, however during that time the military was not treated well. In fact we were blamed for the war and called baby killers, many of us still suffer from PTSD but since it happened long ago the VA sill is very slow to help us because of all the new vets.

I have suffered for 50 years but I have to wait. The US government took 3 years of my life. I did not choose to go. Now they want to put me at the end of line again. Jane Fonda sucked, but the US gov is treating me like I sat on that gun.

I feel that global warming is a massive pile of fecal matter. I am also wondering if the Long Key Bridge is really 100 years old. Maybe it is, I really don’t know.

WhiteWingedScoterMaleThis is for the all the bird-watching enthusiasts of the CT.  Yesterday I saw two White-Winged Scoters just off Howe Key north of Big Pine.  These Scoters aren’t supposed to be this far south, but neither were the Razorbills and Thick-Billed Murres that were spotted a couple of months ago.  I suspect Hurricane Sandy had a lot to do with various birds getting pushed into unusual places.  Makes for interesting bird sightings!

[Crime and Punishment] BP bears most of the blame for the disastrous 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico because it cut corners and put profits ahead of safety, a U.S. Justice Department attorney charged Monday at the opening of a high-stakes trial that could result in the oil company and its partners being forced to pay billions more in damages. 
7mile-runThe 32nd Annual Seven-Mile Bridge Run is set for April 13. It will close the bridge from 6:45 to 9 a.m. that day. Racers begin running at the east end of the span at 7:30 a.m. and have roughly 80 minutes to cross the bridge before shag buses pick up any stragglers. Finishers are bused back to the starting line at Knight’s Key. Registration is full for the popular event, which this year gave Florida Keys residents an advantage. Students in the Monroe County school system will be allowed to participate for free, but must have registered for the run.  Bulletin Board

[Bobcat] A mother bobcat found a secluded intersecting roof line area on the top of a house in Cave Creek, Arizona, where she gave birth to two kits. The house had a skylight, so the owners could watch the cats frolicking on the roof. When the owners noticed that one kit was missing, they originally assumed that it had been taken by a hawk or owl – until the owner remembered that there was an open column off of the roof. He determined the kit had fallen to the bottom of the column so he drilled the column open so the kit could crawl out. The kit came out and promptly walked over to the swimming pool and fell in.

[Fart] This is what happens when old people start using technology. I was in Starbucks up the Keys recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to pass gas. The place was packed but the music was really loud so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music. After a couple of songs I started to feel much better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me.I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod.

[Burglary Charges] This is directed to the article written by regarding the arrest of Mia on burglary charges last week. Too bad you cannot screen who sends in comments made by people, considering that Max was arrested last year for a violent attack on an elderly person and is awaiting trial. He has some nerve with his comments, I wouldn’t be talking Max, you have no room to talk trash. Look in the mirror, you should have the book thrown at you and hopefully you will when you go to trial. You’re the last person that should be judging anyone.

an_ostrich_headt[Climate Change] I do not know about your water line on the Long Key Bridge, but for the last 14 years it has my job to pay attention to tides; and they have gotten higher and crossed streets that use to stay dry. So just keep your head in the sand and keep listening to Rush Limbaugh. 
[Neighbor Troubles] When people move to the Keys they are quick to rat on neighbors who’ve lived here 15 years. Jason Wagner bought my best friend’s house here in Cudjoe Key and called Sheriff John Riggs on me for cleaning up after my friend who was forced out prematurely. This was much worse than the Canadians who call code enforcement on their neighbors during the lousy 2 months they’re here. What ever happened to Live and Let Live? People are so busy making a living in the Keys, that it’s hard to make friends. Jason Wagner is pushing for Grand Theft and Burglary in an unoccupied dwelling, extremely heavy-handed charges, considering the facts. He is an angry, unreasonable, pushy, lost man whose boat is called “Straight Git’n It”. I don’t think so!
My plan is to sunbathe topless to make my point. Ladies, Jason Wagner might be single, but you don’t want any part of him. He is a vengeful alcoholic, so it is my belief that nobody should hire him either. Not only did he give his son a beebee gun, but he let him trespass on my neighbor’s land while sniper shooting at my children for 2 days last Tuesday and Wednesday. I have witnesses, incriminating photos of the welts and his son holding a rifle-looking beebee gun. So I have to face the awful music of felonies I didn’t commit while Jason Wagner employs gang justice. This is outrageous, and he will lose at the March 14th court hearing. I know it’s difficult to find loyal friends among the drunks and druggies of the Keys, but I think it’s absolutely insane to make enemies deliberately. John Riggs is a questionable individual, too, and would make Jason Wagner a perfect bed mate. If anyone out there does call dispatch, make sure John Riggs is not the responding Sheriff or you will be sorry.
[BS Degree] The guy that lives across from me; the one on the left, cough, is a college graduate. He has a BS in BS. 
[Gun Ownership] Vermont already boasts a high rate of gun ownership along with the least restrictive laws of any state. it’s currently the only state that allows a citizen to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. This combination of plenty of guns and few laws regulating them has resulted in a crime rate that is the third lowest in the nation. 
(?) People with no lives of their own are bent on ruining other people’s lives. Please take down max’s slanderous paragraph,and don’t print this message. Max doesn’t know what he’s talking about with regards to the incident with my new neighbor with the permanent hard-on.

It just keeps on getting better all the time. The liberal doesn’t agree with the conservative, so of course that makes the conservative negative in the eyes of the liberal. The logic of some libs on these sites is really convolution at its finest.


A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.   ~Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779

hollywood26It’s no secret that the Hollywood and glitterati and The Obama have a serious, sweaty love affair going on. Some of the glitterati heavy hitters are now bragging that they are ready to pay even more in taxes, just to be “fair”.  It’s incredible, but Mrs. Obama was a surprise presenter at the Oscars, she out glittered the glitterati. There is no doubt about it; the Obama’s are the absolute masters of propaganda/PR. Goebbels is spinning in envy.
While you were cozied up in your Lazy-boy chomping popcorn and watching your favorite actors and directors receive this year’s Oscars, I’ll bet that you never even gave a thought to “welfare recipients.” You should of. The glitterati gush about social responsibility and the need for the most financially successful Americans, the evil one percenters, to pay their “fair share.” Deer Friends, those glitterati are receiving welfare.
Hollywood millionaires and moguls are bagging an estimated $1.51 billion in tax revenues annually through something called “film tax credits.”
Film tax credit supporters also say that if states don’t offer the Hollywood handouts, other states, or even other countries, will poach the film projects that would otherwise have been shot in their own backyards.
But tax and policy analysts who have studied film tax credit programs say industry claims of job creation are vastly overstated. Worse, say critics, they drain resources from things like education and healthcare.
Think about this: While you were watching your favorite Oscar-nominated movie stars and directors strut the red carpet wearing their stylish designer digs this year, to take a bow. Your tax dollars helped get them there. Source: Forbes.

Part 2) What will really happen on Friday, the dreaded “S” day? Not much of anything.
Regardless of what you think of the automatic reductions in the rate of growth of spending, the money that is causing all of the caterwauling in Washington won’t get slurped out in one deep draught. instead, the “sequester” will begin a small, slow steady reduction in funding. The sequester sips.

When Obama talks about hundreds of thousands of jobs lost and more than a trillion dollars in cuts he’s assuming that the automatic decrease remains in place, unchanged, until 2023. Every sentient reader know that a decade more of budget impasse is unlikely, given five election cycles. But it’s also true that the sequester is unlikely to remain as written for even the first year.

Plus, to make the reductions look as brutal as possible, the president and his agency heads are hyping up fictional horrors attendant to the kickoff. They are bound and determined to frighten voters into pressuring Republicans to nix the cuts. If Obama actually believed that the sequester would stand for a decade he wouldn’t be front-loading the drama. Obama knows this is a limited engagement, but he wants to make sure that he gets more of what he wants – higher taxes and higher spending – in the sequel.

Here’s an example of the Team Obama scare campaign of lies and misinformation: Team Obama is claiming that sequestration will result in the closure of the National Drug Intelligence Center, because it would supposedly lose $2 mill of its budget.  The fact is that the National Drug Intelligence Center has been closed since June 15th 2012.
The sequel to the sequester comes in the weeks ahead as Congress debates the soon to expire continuing resolution funding the government in the absence of a budget. The current measure, pushed forward in a pre-election punt – expires on March 27. That is going to be a real dust up.

How much, how and where the government spends your money will be the topic of conversation until then. And unlike the sequester or the so-called “fiscal cliff” at the beginning of the year, this really is a hard deadline.

Recall that for the entire panic attendant to the across-the-board tax increases set to begin on January 1, the real deadline won’t be until the end of this year since the taxes for 2013 aren’t owed until the spring of 2014. It was exciting to play the fiscal cliff stakes, but not as consequential as the president and the press made it out to be.

Emily Holubowich is a health care lobbyist who leads a coalition of 3,000 non profits that are fighting the sequestration cuts. She recently said: “The good news is, the world doesn’t end March 2. The bad news is, the world doesn’t end March 2.” She expanded her beliefs by saying: “The worst-case scenario for us is the sequester hits and nothing bad really happens. And then the Republicans say: “See, that wasn’t so bad.”

Obama is using these phony crises as a tool to ratchet up pressure on Republicans to again raise taxes.  Keep in mind that the last “deal” resulted in 13 new taxes being levied on American taxpayers effective January 1st 2013.

pay26Part 3) This next little tidbit should make your blood boil. While Obama preaches that he is the champion of the middle class, Obama is launching a scheme whereby whale donors ($500k+) would be guaranteed quarterly meeting with The Obama. It’s all a part of Obama’s ongoing propaganda/arm twisting nationwide group, Organizing For Action. Originally that organization was Obama’s campaign arm. Now he’s morphed it into a pressure group to push his agenda.  OFA is pushing a scheme whereby huge Obama donors would pay for special face time with Obama. Here’s what the New York Times said: “…..those contributions will also translate into access, according to donors courted by the president’s aides. Next month, Organizing for Action will hold a “founders summit” at a hotel near the White House, where donors paying $50,000 each will mingle with Mr. Obama’s former campaign manager, Jim Messina, and Mr. Carson, who previously led the White House Office of Public Engagement.  

Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House. Moreover, the new cash demands on Mr. Obama’s top donors and bundlers come as many of them are angling for appointments to administration jobs or ambassadorships.”  Deer Friends, that sucks, big time.
