[Free Money] Instead of our county commissioners trying to decide on new ways to spend whatever money the county will be getting from BP, why not use that money to help the taxpayers pay down the costs of putting sewers in the county?

[Affordable Care Website] When Google comes out with a new product they beta test the website for, sometimes, a year. was tested for only two days. $400,000,000 wasted, probably the largest amount ever spent on a website–that doesn’t work. Heads should roll! 



Either the folks in Eden Pines are getting ready for Halloween or the feral cat problem is worse than we feared. 

[Crooks] For some, sewer construction costs are going up. Cudjoe Regional wastewater system jumped more than 10 million dollars.  Now it begins! Link

There is a new grinder pump petition online to put all grinder pumps on public property and powered from an FKAA meter instead of your home. No individual should have to subsidize public construction costs or provide the land. This petition originated from Ramrod but applies to all. By grouping isolated clusters of homes on a short gravity system that is pumped by a single pump station, the construction costs are less and the long term maintenance costs are far less. With a greatly reduced number of pump stations, maybe pumping them down during a power outage is actually achievable! In 2005, Cudjoe was without power for 53 days. That’s a lot of “camp buckets” to empty!(somewhere) Help yourself and your friends & neighbors by declaring your support at this link.

Another oarfish washed up Friday on the beach near Oceanside, Calif. This rare, snakelike oarfish measured nearly 14 feet long. Maybe this will cal;m Captain Doom from accusing everyone of everything.

Yes, most of Little Torch Key is getting grinder pumps, unless we can change their minds by signing petitions and fighting it. 3 or 4 homes can go in the road in something similar to a wet well with the FKAA supplying the electric to run their own equipment. No need for them to make people give them an easement to their property. Call your County Commissioners and let them know what you think.


[Affordable Care Website] I have, on three different days tried several time each day to get on the ObamaCare web site. A total of 9 times. Most often it will freeze or go blank. The few time I was able to fill out the very long request just to see the plans and cost. They have lost or redirected my input to the wrong place. My personal Insurance has gone for $650 to over $1,000 dollars per month,that’s with a $10,000 deductible. I would like to see if a savings is available for me and my wife. We are both in good health. I do know one person with preexisting conditions that was able to get through. They were able to stick with it for several hours,they feel that they may have gotten coverage. They are really not sure. Has anyone been able to do any better.

The10th was the charm. I was able to get some info. My wife and I must have & pay for maternity and newborn care. We are 63 years of age. I just don’t need that kind of coverage.

crock-of-shit[Crock of Shit] More politely known as “a pile of poo”, the term “a crock of shit” derives from an ancient Roman custom that coincidentally took place in Roman times. It referred literally to a pot into which people would excrete if they were particularly bored by whichever freelance philosopher happened to be talking rubbish at the time. The Roman empire employed crock-monitors who were each assigned to a philosopher, and it was their job to monitor the pot (or crock). Should the crock become full, it would be presented to the philosopher, who was obliged, by law, to announce that it bore a remarkable resemblance to himself, thus proclaiming he was full of crap and was, in fact, talking a crock of shit.

[Insurance] If you have a major heart attack and make it to the hospital, that $2K deductible will seem like a bargain.  Of course, if your philosophy of life boils down to, “Why fix the roof, it’s not raining?”  then none of this applies to you.

[?]One hundred dollars to deliver stone crab claws?  Really?  How’s the gouging business going?  What a swindler.  


I see many of the real rich are selling their mansions and holdings and I wonder why. Seems the junk people like politicos, middlemen, brokers, entertainers and sports idiots are cashing in their ill produced gain for greener fields elsewhere. Is it that bad in America that they are moving somewhere else on the rock?

[Captain Doom and Gloom] “FTR: Team Obama is fully convinced that even more Americans should be on the government dole” Deer FTR guy, and why should not BO build up his army of freeloaders and useless eaters to protect himself and drive out all the productive in America so the bad guys can take over and conquer us? This is the logic most Democraps use! Scary huh?



religion politics zone

an_vote_now[Vote] Every Day – except Saturday – you post about how Republicans are messed up and we post how Democrats are ignorant, and we can keep this up until we are dead and buried. Our Country is going down the shitter. I for one am angry as hell that it is. Both Parties in our government are butting heads while our boys are dying and Muslim extremists are saying, “I told you so”.

Isn’t it about time we all start acting as Americans and start rooting for our team – America. I don’t care if you are left, right, black or white – it is time to stick your head up above the fray and stop pecking with the chickens.

Vote American, not based on party but based on getting us out of the shitter. Stop paying our enemies to fight us and stop fighting each other. We must rise above it all and quit the childish nonsense that Washington wants us to bathe in. Stop believing that Fox hates Obama and that CNN hates Rush and start believing in the fact that we are being played.

We are being played so bad that our kid’s kids won’t be able to pay for it all. You will have half of America living off the other half while a few connected players make off with the Monopoly money. Stop fighting each other and unite against the power in Washington. Wipe it all out with the next election. Vote for the guy next door who will not play the game (if that guy exists and if he or she will run for the office).Throw them all out: County, State,Federal, anyone who gets up and starts piping up about what we don’t want to hear. Don’t vote for them. Vote for the one that is dragged kicking and screaming into the office and make him work for us. Vote for the one who says, “I don’t want to but I will do it.” The average American that is mad as hell — vote for him. I will.

Obamacare just killed my insurance. I have an individual health plan by Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC. I’ve been paying $167 per/month, but I just received a letter telling me that my medical plan will no longer exist because of the Affordable Care Act, and my new premium will now be $433 per month effective Jan. 2014. The deductible went from $2,000 to $5,500, and guess what — I do not qualify for any of the so-called subsidies. Obama just tells you he wants you to think, but fails to tell you about the 85% who are now very angry about this so call “Affordable Health Care.” It is not, nor has it ever been, about your health insurance or care — it is about spreading around the wealth and controlling people.


Gotta love it. FTR on Monday whined about what Obama was going to be doing instead of what he, FTR, wants him to be doing next. The Right is all the way down to bitching about things before they happen. Classic. Got ego?

To get rid of GOP/RWNJ[?] without leaving evidence behind, just tell ’em Michelle Obama thinks breathing is good.

The Tea Party is not going anywhere. They are growing stronger by the day. Don’t think for a minute that’s it’s a bunch of old white men…Not even close..the only thing the Republicans did wrong was give in.

GOP Sen. Cruz gets Texas-size welcome | TribLIVE PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW15 hours ago

SAN ANTONIO — Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement, returned home to a rousing welcome in Texas on Saturday.

Deer Friends, not too much to write tonight, had to make and up and back to Ft Lauderdale today, and this Olde Fart is tired.  While on the ride I did have great joy to listen to our fearless leader speech-a-fying about his signature healthcare plan.


He sounded very much like that famous TV pitchman, Billy Mays … “But wait there’s more!” Obama aka Billy assured us that that his product was great even though the means to deliver it sucks. In fact it sucks so bad that even Consumer Reports urges its reader to stay away from the web site,, until they get it fixed. Please remember that the web site cost us about 10 times as much as it was supposed to, and still it doesn’t work. If Amazon, Facebookook, and Twitter, can do it, why can’t team Obama at about 10 times the cost? Is it possible that anyone can be so gullible so as to believe that Team Obama really doesn’t know how many people have actually been able to purchase ACA health insurance? I hope not.
