All of you silly bleeding hearts protested and screamed for weeks when they took away the bench the bum used to sit on at CVS.  Well guess what? He didn’t really give a damn about you or CVS because now he is planted outside Winn Dixie which should be a lesson to all of you.  Let sleeping dogs and bums lie, or take their bench away, it doesn’t matter, cause a bum is a bum is a bum, and an eyesore for the community. Give him a bench outside the Salvation Army and let him count cars or something.

[The Movies] Si-Fi movies set in the distant future still have the same, crappy public address systems in the space terminals that we have today at airports.

[Vote No Again] An independent voter’s quest to make sense of the 12 constitutional amendments. Amendment 5
So this whole thing is about changing the State Supreme Court. Who has the time to think about these things? The legislature seems to think that this is important, why’s that ? Payback. Payback? Yes, payback. Remember the last election when we approved amendments to stop the legislature from drawing ridiculous districts to guarantee their reelections ? The legislature tried all kinds of legal tricks to have it thrown out, but the State Supreme Court stopped them. So this gets back at them. That’s harsh. Yes but there’s more to it. I’ll bet they are going to try again. Reps or Dems ? Both. Remember, they’re legislators first and Reps and Dems second. They’ll do whatever they can to get reelected. 
So you think that this amendment is to cut the balls off the Supreme Court so that the legislature can work around the redistricting amendment that we approved last year and rig the districts to their advantage. That’s it! 
What about the legislative, judicial, and administrative branches of government with separate and equal powers, etc that you learned about in social studies class? This is politics. There are people who think that politics is more important.
Another NO (I hope we get a yes pretty soon).

If you happen to own a black cat (or any black animal) be sure to keep them safe from harm and keep them in the house this Halloween. Unfortunately, there are some very demented people in this world, who would cause harm to them — all in the name of some twisted form of “fun”.

Deer Ed,  The links in the body of CT work fine it goes to the email format and “Coconut_Telegraph” in the Subject line. Anyway if you get this the links are working fine for some of us.  The different banner is neat. Forge ahead!

One can bloviate all he or she wishes about alternative energy, which presently supplies Approx 1% of our total energy needs. There is one coal mine in Appalachia with 400 employees which supplies as much as 75% of all the alternative energy produced in the U.S. It is easy to adapt a righteous mode when the wheels are turning, and their A/C’s are humming, but people will sing another tune when they begin to creak to a stop.  Also one must have their head in the ground when complaining about Capitalism and environmental issues. Do a little research on most all Socialistic or Communistic countries around the world. In Denmarkthe total energy consumed using alternative types is forcing their Gov to consume more energy than if they used 100% fossil fuels. Wind does not blow all the time, forcing the Gov to build fossil fuel backup systems.  With a little research it is surprising what one can learn.

I haven’t heard the new music at WD what’s it like? I go there to shop for groceries not dance. What is this world coming to?
PS Love the new format.

[Grilled asparagus] I wonder if asparagus makes the smell of the fish’s pee bad?  That might explain why our canals don’t always smell good.

Deer Ed, Shame on you! You should never have mentioned “Cloud” and no one would have been the wiser. As if your storage & server made a difference on them reading a blog. Need to respond to each and every one to go to the computer classes on Saturday mornings. (Ed: You are right on. You should read some of the emails I got about the Cloud. They don’t seem to know that it’s just the same site stored on the internet instead of on my computer.) 

The authorities say the winner of a roach-eating contest died shortly after downing dozens of bugs and worms. Officials at the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said on Monday that they were waiting for an autopsy to determine the cause of death. The contestant, Edward Archbold, 32, collapsed at a reptile store in Deerfield Beach soon after winning. Officials said no other contestants fell ill.

Good luck with the change over. The Telegraph is the one thing that keeps me connected to the Key’s where I lived most of my life.

Hogfish Bar & Grill named as one of the best seafood restaurants in theU.S.  By whom? Where is the detailed information, or is this another cheep advertising shot?

I don’t have a problem with idiots… I have a problem with the fact they have an internet connection.

Marathon’s Crane Point Hammock. Zip line. Mark these words: It will never ever make a profit, ever. Just another bad idea that will lose money. Losers with bad ideas losing money. That’sMarathon. Why do they pay these people to waste their tax money.


It is October.  I know because it’s 40º here in the great state of Michigan today. ha ha 

I loved the bee grabbing the girl animation from yesterday. Well done. The banners are beautiful eye candy for me.

CJ Geotis for Marathon city council? Did you ever hear that guy on the radio? I don’t think that clown could pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were on the bottom of the heel.

I ate at the Hogfish Bar & Grill twice… It sucked both times.

[Hackers] Not to scare people, but all the virus and spam protection is next to useless if they want your information. Your computer does not even have to be turned on for them to get into the Hard Drive and your files.  It is all about 1s and 0s!

[Patrol Car Use] It may not be a bad idea to allow the Police to take their cars home because a Policeman is always on duty in reality. The only thing that needs addressing is the use of it for family business. If the wife is out shopping with it, then the Policeman is useless as a stand-by! Also it greatly depends on where the Policeman lives.

Romney‘s foreign policy speech: All War All The Time. Link
Neo con Nazis rejoice. Your candidate is more embarrassing abroad than your point man Dubya. Thanks guys. Maybe a good old fashioned book burning is in order. Link

[State Sovereignty] Wow, are you in the wrong country!  States’ rights are a big part of the constitution.  Self-determination was the whole reason for the civil war, slavery was just one of many issues under that label.

Its about time someone said it. The Right‘s fantasy that someone wanting to work will ever quit looking for work is B.S. If you want to work you can find it. If you want to work you don’t quit looking for work. That just means you are too damn lazy to  put out the effort. The economy’s coming along and the good news for most Americans is always doom and gloom to the Right. As for the people using the “Underemployed” B.S. that’s as bad as saying the economic numbers are cooked. That’s a made-for-politics bit of rhetoric that has no merit. We are all underemployed and can use better jobs. Its always been that way and always will. It’s as if all Republicans have turned into Jane Fonda and hate America doing better after the 2nd worst Republican financial disaster in American history in ’08 before our President was elected. I’m not buying the B.S. and if you are an honest thinking American you are seeing our return to the days before Republican destruction. Obama 2012. I don’t want an Iranian Oil baron sitting behind the Presidents desk. It would be a slap in the face of every veteran returning from Iraq.

American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper” The irony of this article appearing in the English edition of Pravda (Russian online newspaper) defies description. Why can a Russian newspaper print the following yet the American media can’t/won’t see it? Link 

[Rocky Mountain High] I’m not trying to think about that debate last week. I just can’t stop thinking about it. And the more I think about Barack Obama’s performance, or lack thereof, the more I think Rush Limbaugh’s analysis is right on target. “Al Gore said the problem with Obama is he was too high. Others said nope, he was too mellow. (Well, the attitude, too high.) I had people telling me he was on Valium. I had people telling me Obama was on Valium because he’s suffering anxiety and they rolled the dice; they gave him some Valium. A headline by a guy in the New York Times, Charles Blow, called him “President Xanax.” Xanax is in the same family as Valium, I guess. It’s a sedative or whatever. There are actually people who believe Obama was on Valium because he’s so, so wired and so anxious. They had to tamp that down, and they just gave him too much.” I admit it. I was thinking about that as I watched that so-called debate. It seemed to me Obama was on something – or maybe off something he is usually on. Which raises a very old, lingering question: Why has Obama refused to release – among many other things like a non-fraudulent birth certificate, student transcripts, college and university records, law school writings, passport and travel records, a legit Social Security number, etc.. – his health records? What is he hiding there?
 What deep, dark secrets could one ofAmerica’s youngest and most physically active occupants of the White House in history be so concerned about?

In 1973, Spiro Agnew (R) resigned the vice presidency after being charged with tax evasion.


Obama has mentioned Big Bird And Elmo combined 13 times,Libya and economy zero times. Sad day when the supposed leader of the free world resorts to 5th-grade taunts.

[Romney wins debate] It’s hard to argue with someone who says anything in the world true or not and doesn’t let anyone else get a word in. Obama said in the debate that the tax code Romney stands behind rewards companies for sending jobs overseas( like he did at Bain) Romney said that was not true. It has been confirmed as true by independent fact checkers. So can you say he actually won when he lied? Is a man who is 1. A liar or 2. Not familiar with the tax plan he represents fit the president? And what does that say about his ” jobs plan” when so many very lucrative companies like his bain capital take advantage of the American tax code as elitists and blame 47% of the population for being freeloaders

kill big bird10The Big Bird thing is a euphemism for all that is wrong with Romney’s platform of slash and burn anything that doesn’t benefit the rich.

The whole damn thing is about to come crumbling down around us and people are still trying to blame one side or the other. The founders warned us about the party system along with many important things that would take pages to go into. Wake up folks, its not Obama, its not Romney, its the system! How do we fix it? We bring back the Republic, we get rid of special interest influence, we live by the true free market, we do away with collectivism, we do away with foreign entangling alliances, we trust in our fellow man, unless he truly threatens us, we declare war when it needs to be fought, we believe in the individual, we quit preaching to losers and enabling laziness. Again, wake up!


Republicans create business and defend the country – Democrats tax and redistribute the wealth created by Republicans. Republicans can get along fine without Democrats – the reverse is not true. Look only at the health of Republican Governor states.

With apologies to Abe Lincoln, You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time unless they are Obama voters.


When the rich don’t want to pay a tax increase, which is why they are holding up religious cultist and wall street jobs exporter Mitt Romney as their candidate, is because they don’t want to pitch in a little more to pay for the bush wars. Bush was their guy. The wars made him famous. I think it is Unpatriotic to not chip in a little more of the greed money he saved them to pay down the deficit they helped create. It sounds damn unpatriotic. 

Obama Executive Orders since 2009 (these are only some of them!) What do they tell you? Honestly, does this make you comfortable?  I can tell these scare the hell out of me. The Office of the President has always had emergency powers in place in case of national emergency, why do you think he has gone to this extreme with these EOs?

* Executive Order 10990 allows the Government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
* Executive Order 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
* Executive Order 10997 allows the government to tak

e over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels, and minerals.
* Executive Order 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
* Executive Order 11001 allows the government to take over all health education and welfare functions.
* Executive Order 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
* Executive Order 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

* Executive Order 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issues over a fifteen-year period.
* Executive Order 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
* Executive Order 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute Industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
* Executive Order 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit, and the flow of money inU.S. financial institutions in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when the president declares a state of emergency, Congress cannot review the action for six months.

I am in search of the full list he has written into law with merely his signature.  These 13 pretty much set up a Totalitarian government.  I think he’s even got the Socialists that back him fooled.
