I’m not able to get a sewer hook-up so they are making me install a poop plant on my property. The only place I can place it is where the existing septic tank is. What will we do with our poop while they are installing the new plant? I’ll be damned if I’ll call the out of state people who are in charge of this because they don’t even know where the Keys are, never mind giving me a correct answer. The plant’s location is very important to us, but not to them.

[Don’t throw it — Grow it] It’s not only vegetables that you can’t grow seeds from. Have you noticed that you can’t grow pot form the seeds that come with it any more? I don’t know why, but it’s been this way for several years now.



[Crab Cake Review] I woke up this morning thinking about the Stone Crab Cakes I ate last night from Fanci Seafood. I’ve never had crab cakes with any discernible crab in them. They usually contain just Old Bay Seasoning and cracker mush. Fanci Seafood’s were different. They were almost all Stone Crab! Each cake cost $6, but must have contained at least ten dollars worth of stone crab meat, not any crab meat, but Stone Crab meat! I cooked mine on a griddle for five minutes on each side and they were perfect (cooking directions are right on the wrapper). You know something is good when you wake up craving them like I did. I hope they have more soon because I’m having company and this will surely impress them damn Yankees.

[IKC News] Iguanas have wiped out many Miami blue butterfly, a federally protected endangered species, colonies in the refuges and in Bahia Honda State Park. People who are angry at their neighbors for killing iguanas forget that we live in a refuge.

[Woman in Combat] To you chauvinist out there, woman have been in combat for many years. Look at the Israel Army and the Chinese Army and the North Korean Army for their successes.

I want one of those jobs where people ask, “Do you actually get paid for doing this?”




[Queen Bee] Netherlands Queen Beatrix announced Monday that she will abdicate on April 30 after 33 years as head of state, clearing the way for her eldest son, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, to become the nation’s first king in more than a century. The new king is presently a banker in London.

On the bright side, my coffee will never get cold in hell.

Cat predation accounted for 50 percent to 77 percent of the deaths of Lower Keys marsh rabbits and Key Largo woodrats — two endangered species, the groups said. According to a 1999 U.S. Fish and Wildlife report, feral cats have killed 53 percent of marsh rabbits in the Lower Keys. Keep your goddamned cats inside. Don’t you get it, we live in a wildlife refuge not a domestic cat refuge. 





[Landmarks] I never even had a compass on my boat for many years because I could always see the smoke stacks of City electric. When they tore them down I was lost! I had to finally buy a compass.

In 1891, Queen Liliuokalani inherited the throne from her brother, Kalakaua, becoming the last monarch of the Hawaiian Islands when the Americans deposed her and gained control of the islands by nefarious means.

Old age and trickery will overcome youth and ambition. 



[New App] Apple has allowed the release of Condom Size, a app for measuring your you know what. Since sales of their overpriced subsidized $649 iPhone have been leveling off (one can get a similar Android phone for $250 + $45 service) Apple has been pressured into being a bit more relaxed on their app approval process. Think twice about borrowing your friend’s smartphone you might not want to see his pictures. Link

[Divorce Lawyer Has Sex With Client, Bills Her for Services Rendered] Minnesota’s Supreme Court last week barred attorney Thomas P. Lowe from practicing law for at least the next 15 months after it was revealed that he was billing a client for sex.

Lowe, who runs a private practice in Burnsville, was approached in August 2011 by an acquaintance who asked him to represent her in a divorce. Their attorney-client relationship soon evolved into a sexual one, but, as the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility heard last summer, Lowe maintained his professionalism throughout the affair — going so far as to bill the woman for the time they spent having sex. In March of last year, Lowe, a married man, terminated both their legal and extralegal relationships within the span of two days. The woman, already vulnerable due to past abuse, attempted to commit suicide and was hospitalized.

It was then that she revealed the nature of her meetings with Lowe. After denying the allegations for several months, court records show Lowe eventually came clean.

Lowe was previously on probation for purchasing cocaine from a client. He can reapply for a law license in 15 months and continue his terrible ways.

[Why Men Prefer Guns Over Women]  10 – You can trade an old 44 for a new 22. 9 – You can keep one gun at home and have another for when you’re on the road. 8 – If you admire a friend’s gun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times. 7 – Your primary gun doesn’t mind if you keep another gun for a backup. 6 – Your gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo. 5 – A gun doesn’t take up a lot of closet space. 4 – Guns function normally every day of the month. 3 – A gun doesn’t ask , “Do these new grips make me look fat?” 2 – A gun doesn’t mind if you go to sleep after you use it. And the Number One reason Why Men Prefer Guns over women. 1 – You can buy a silencer for a gun.

[Captain Doom and Gloom] How the hell can people let politicians allow illegal invaders have free everything and get drivers licenses when they are committing a crime by being here? In Europe the same crap is ruining that continent and it looks like the invaders will kill off the locals without batting an eye. Somewhere there has to be a man with the balls to stop all this shit and get us back to sanity and America back to America! And that guy only speaks English!

There is a strange bird that can fly almost anywhere when someone needs to have politicos adjusted. It is called the South Philly / NYC Dock Street Redheaded Knee Knocker. (Brunis Kneebrakist). Its bill looks like a small ball peen hammer. Ugly, but a very effective way to fix things.

“Venture Out” How did they get a permit for that poop tank when I can not get a permit for a world wide legally recognized poo processing apparatus?

We have one of those damn neighbors who must be deaf or so stupid he doesn’t know his dumb dog barks his head off all day. I’ll have to teach the dog to be quiet, but I cannot find the 2×4 I had for that!


[Immigration] There will be no meaningful immigration reform as long as the Right only want punishment and vengeance and the Left only want to solve the problem. Vote Right and keep it White.

Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.  ~Mark Twai 


[Immigration] I am originally from Illinois and am continually amazed and embarrassed by the actions of this, the most poorly run state in the union (except for maybe California).

In any case, the Illinois governor just signed a bill granting illegal aliens the possibility of obtaining drivers licenses.  One of the reasons he cited was that by doing so (as pointed out in yesterday’s CT), it “allowed increased opportunities for illegal immigrants”.

This, in a state with an unemployment rate a full percentage point higher than the national average (8.7%).  Jeez, Governor Ryan, don’t you think in might be better to do things that allow increased opportunities by legal residents?

[Debt Ceiling] Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling: “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.”

Make it so. 


I have said quite often on here that if you sit back and let FTR continue speaking he will make your point for you.

Example. FTR tells us daily that the countrys woes are worsening and that its all because of Democratics. Then,  there it was on Monday.  He proved to us without a shadow of a doubt that its not because of the Democrats at all. Heres his exact words.

“I’ll bet that you didn’t know that 30 of our 50 States have Republican Governors. That’s the highest number since 2000. Republicans control 27 state legislatures but Democrats only control 20. The balance (5) is spit and one is officially nonpartisan. Four of the five governors who are identified as being minorities are Republican. There are twice as many female Rep governors than there are Dem’s.” 

He kindly pointed out that the more republicans are in charge the worse our country gets. Just wait a bit longer and he will always make your point better then you could. Watch the walk back coming up for those comments.

Thank you Sir. 



For those that don’t know about Liberal and Conservative history, here is a condensed version. Link

FROM THE RIGHTright only grey

Please, please, the video link here is genuinely worth your attention. It is the Senate testimony of Mark Mattioli, father of a 6 year old boy who was slaughtered at the Newton, Ct., school.  I urge you to watch it: Link

Part 1) Did you catch the news that a bi partisan group of legislators, including Rubio and McCain have come up with new plan to reform our Gordian immigration rules and laws.  I understand that Obama is a day late on this issue.

mayor29Part 1a) Gee whiz, AP has just reported that former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been released from a city lockup where he spent the weekend for violating parole in the 2008 criminal conviction that booted him from office. Kilpatrick left the Michigan Corrections Department facility in Detroit Monday morning. He had been locked up there since Friday afternoon. He’s expected to return Monday to federal court where he’s on trial in a separate matter. I guess that AP just forgot to mention that he’s was the Democrat Mayor of Detroit. I guess that the Huffington Post, CNN, etc. etc. also just forgot to mention that he’s a Democrat.  By the way, his first conviction was on corruption charges, and he is about to stand trial on additional corruption charges.  Detroit, Democrat controlled, corrupt governance, broke, huge homicide rate, scabrous slums.  It’s just more Democrat Ho Hum.

There’s one more little thingy on the mainstream media’s overwhelming bias in favor of Democrats. On Friday it was revealed that the FBI is investigating Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) for allegedly sleeping with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. Despite this, when Menendez was given a six-minute interview with Martha Raddatz on ABC’s This Week Sunday, he was not asked one question about the investigation or the allegations. Ho Hum (pun intended).

Well, maybe just one more little 50 Shades of Grey item about CBS’s  60 Minutes Kroft’s interview of Hillary and Barak.  It was cloyingly sweet.  While the Mideast is in flames, while we have 5 million more folks out of work than we did just a few years ago, while our landlord, China, and Russia are becoming more and more brazenly hostile to the US, Kroft filled nearly three fourths of his big interview with President Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with kissy face questions. He only asked 4 questions that might have been of some measure of import. Even there, he let Obama/Clinton skate. So much so that laughter was more commonplace that any challenging questions. He might have spent his time in a better fashion if he just asked Hillary for her macadamia nut brownies or Barak for his views on his favorite basset ball team.  Ho Hum (pun intended).

Part 2) Yesterday a confused poster wrote: “Didnt (sic) Republicans also just push thru the budget increase?’   The answer is NO,  NO  and Hell NO.  It’s understandable that the confused poster would be confused; the mainstream media has studiously avoided publishing the facts. The facts are that here hasn’t been a budget passed through the Senate since 2009.  During that time period the Republican House of Representatives has sent at least three budget proposals, each of which would have cut spending and pushed us toward debt/deficit reduction.  Harry Reid, Democrat, Majority leader of the Senate, has the power to kill such legislation. He did just that. He refused to even consider them.  The Senate even refused to pass a budget that Obama had put forward.

Currently the Republican controlled House of Reps is proposing a budget that balances the budget in 5 years.

Specifically, it cuts discretionary spending to $931 billion (slightly below the 2008 levels approved by Nancy Pelosi), and freezes it until the budget balances in 2017. Defense spending is the same as the House Budget Committee proposal. Non-defense shrinks from $377 billion in FY 2013 to $329 billion in FY 2022.  And that’s just the beginning read all about it at: Link
