Another day in the Big O Paradise

Thanks to our Lord that Lilred’s test results came back negative….Yes, and as self employed people, we pay more than what we pay for our house a month for our required “Healthcare” insurance. So:

LilRed goes for well checks and they find a lump. We pay for part of more tests.. then almost all of an MRI (around another $1,000) out of pocket. On top of what we pay in taxes and not even making six-figures AGI (income ) combined. Now: Tell me what the welfare recip’s pay for their healthcare? What they pay for about anything. Do they work the hours we do in our little business? LilRed still clips coupons and shops for bargains… then waits in lines behind Lone Star Card users buying baskets full of name brands so she can buy our generic products.. then has to wait behind them in their ‘better-than-yours” cars to pull out of the parking lot. What is wrong with this picture? Should we be in the “Waitin’ Around For the Gov’t Check Bid’ness” instead of the “Construction Bid’ness”? And they say I need to pay more taxes to get our gov’t out of this mess? Belize is looking better every week… if I could only have enough money left to get us there.. lol.

My electrician came to get his check today and said “THOSE people all want the president to fail and won’t give him a chance!”

I said: “He has no plan, so how can his plan even fail? WHAT, exactly is his plan? He has to have a plan before anyone can give it a chance to fail or succeed… Meanwhile all I hear from “The One” is the same campaign rhetoric and demagoguery (class and race warfare).. and absolutely no leadership.” —- Oh well: Chuck is a great electrician so I hope I didn’t lose him.. but somehow I think he will continue to do business with this ‘capitalist’ who is good to him and pays him fairly.. and actually still has a lot of work in this admininistration’s failed economy.

By the way:  I was one who told several conservative friends to give him a chance and wait and see what they do..  his promises were so great maybe he knew something we all didn’t..  I hoped that he wasn’t just an empty suit..but like the rest of these politicians he is just that:  another power hungry politician.

If you’ve read this far I have to ask you:  Are you willing to look at anything objectively anymore?  I hope so because it will take people like you to make our country great again.  Please look past your own self-interests and agendas and don’t just listen to all these political hacks.   They don’t really care about anything but power.

Derek, I agree with you whole heartedly about the situation we are in. I, on ss is very low, and I have had to apply for medicaid as my major medical was slashed to pieces with the heart attacks, the meds I have to take just to have maintenence care. I do not take advantage of these benefits because I don’t believe I deserve the frills of of some things that I can benefit from, but I don’t have to have them. I am so proud and thankfull that I have the peace of knowing that with my heart problems and what goes along with it I am taken care of. I do not like the things I see being abused with like colas, moon pies, and even some deli letting prepared plates going out on fs. I would love to see the gov changing the law as to what you can purchase with fs, like food, as in potatos, rice beans, flour, corn meal, coffee, tea. All this other junk like gum, candy, soda pops, pot chips. In other words NO JUNK food. Do you see where i’m coming from Derek? I hope and pray that I live long enough to see someone in office that can, and will change things around. No, I do not believe that taxes should be raised on people that have worked hard to have their comfort. NO<NO<NO it is not right. I believe in helping others, but don’t force me to do it, right? I didn’t mean to hog the soap box but it was so nice reading your article as it is precisely my own thoughts and more too.

Derek Wauson Thanks Aunt Clare: Nothing wrong with the system being used as it is intended.. but through corruption and abuse we’ve created a monster that is beginning to starve. What happens to that monster when you can no longer feed it? It will eat YOU. We are headed toward that iceberg and the pilot says it isn’t there.. while there are a few on board screaming for us to change course. Meanwhile the regulars are sunbathing and rearranging deck chairs. And the band plays on to the tune of: “God help us all”

Anthony (Wiener)’s Song

Sung to the tune of:\

“Movin’ Out”  by Billy Joel (Anthony’s Song)  (the metering could be better, but you work it out…ha)

Anthony works in the legislature,

Savin’ his pennies for phone sex.

Mama Pelosi left a note on the door,

She said:

“Sonny, move out of the congress.”

Workin’ too hard can give you

A heart attackackackackackack

You oughta know by now

Who needs a Mistress on the internet?

Is that all you get for your money?

And it seems such a waste of time

If that’s what it’s all about

Mama, If that’s movin’ up then I’m movin’ out.

Mmm, I’m movin’ out. Ooh-hoo, uh-huh, mmmm

Congressman Wiener shows off his name sake,

At night he becomes a pre-dator

He’s a U.S. Representative down

In Wash’ton DC

Instead of a Federal Prison

And he’s tradin’ in his Woman for the CyberSex-ex-ex-ex-ex..

You oughta know by now

And he may never be Speaker.. of the House

At least he could chair the D..N-C

And It seems such a waste of time

If that’s what it’s all about

Mama, If that’s movin’ up then I’m movin’ out.

Mmm, I’m movin’ out. Ooh-hoo, uh-huh, mmmm

You should never argue with a  congresman-an-nan-nan-nan

You oughta know by now

You can pay Uncle Sam for their overtime

But It will never be- enough money.

Because we know what they have in mind

And we know what their all about.

Good luck movin’ up ’cause I’m movin’ out.

Mmm, I’m movin’ out. Ooh-hoo, uh-huh, mmmm

I’m movin’ out…

And if that’s what you have in mind..

If that’s what your all about,

Mamma if that’s moving up then I’m..

Movin’ Out

After the Global Caliphate Celebration

Anyone who really knows me has noted that I am appalled at the behavior of different characters who claim to be “Christian”. I am disappointed in the examples set and have spoken out against it. However I feel that too many people are using it as an excuse to demonstrate their hate for Christians and lash out with their nasty commentary.

Here is a thought I had:  Well I know that it isn’t something I would do because it would not be something that would please my Lord.. nor would I want to do it, but how about this? What if I started a group on Facebook called: “After Global Caliphate Party”? Imagine what a wonderful world that will be? There would be total domination and subjugation of women, and all who will not take on the status of “Dhimmi” would convert or be executed. Gays and Lesbians and all us infidels (sinners) would be executed if we do not submit. How ’bout that?

I guess that will be a wonderful party to go to.. not to mention a wonderful world to live in without all the Gays, Lesbians, feminists, infidels, etc., right?

I sure hope it doesn’t hurt the feelings of any reading this, but I am simply making a point. We all should think about what these kinds of movements mean: Hate, pure and simple. It doesn’t matter our beliefs, but what are we participating in? Because I am a Christian do you hate me that much to celebrate my absence? Isn’t it a form of prejudice to lump me in with a few idiots? As a Christian: do I hate you enough to celebrate your downfall, annihilation, defeat or humiliation because I don’t like what some in whatever group you belong to have done that maybe you wouldn’t have? My answer is “no, that is not what Jesus teaches any true disciple”. It makes me a hypocrite if I do the same thing that I am condemning and I may not really be a follower of Christ. Forgive me if I have ever given that impression to any of you. Please think about this…

With Much Love whether you like it or not and because that is what my God teaches me… Avatar Czar

Charlie’s War on Sanity

All abo-o-a-a-rd.. ah-hah-ha-ha-ha-ha haaaah... "I"..."I".. "Me".. "My".

“WINNING!”.. For all the loyal “Warlock” followers: I think I’ve seen Sheen’s brand of victory and it looks something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eMkth8FWno

Rooting on someone like this is likely to encourage him to continue on to a horrible end. If Charlie is my brother I don’t encourage this.. or jump aboard his crazy train.

“..For you have said in your heart:

‘ I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’..”

The “most high” part he got right.

Time For Spring Cleaning.. So you can start with me.

Here I am saying lot’s of BS I know nothing about. However I am surrounded by “doctor-looking-dudes”. You see this gives me credibility and people will believe anything I say. Kinda like “Simon Says”.

I felt it was time to update my Facebook profile.  I am not on it enough lately to keep up with all the drama, or to be a follower of my favorite Narcissist.  So to be fair I thought I would give more information about myself to save everyone from the wrong decision of unwittingly friending me.  It might save prospective FB friends some heartache and jolts of harsh reality… and maybe even me:

If you want to be friends on FB.. alright with me. If not.. that’s your choice too.. no hard feelings.

WARNING:

1. I live in Texas and I have guns (and so do a lot of my friends). Everything: from ones used in construction to other types.. mostly the kind one might use in hunting and fending off beasts of all kinds…

2. I think politicians suck (almost all of them).

3. I believe that Global Warming is caused by the Sun: (Ask its inhabitants and see what they think).  I also think that Global Cooling is caused by the lack thereof.

4. My wife is part Sicilian, part Irish (amongst other nationalities)… Her Irish temper can do damage, but then the Sicilian takes care of the witnesses.. But 99.99 percent of the time she’s the sweetest woman on the face of the earth.. (not stated under duress… but the other .01 percent of the time..  RUN.. Run like the wind!)

5. I am unashamedly Christian but not religious (if you can understand that). If you want me to be ashamed of that then look elsewhere. I’m sure someone will accommodate you. If you don’t think or believe the way I do I will not hate you or unfriend you unless you are unreasonable and nasty with me or my friends.

What else can I say? So what are you gonna do? You got a problem wi’dat? You gotta prowblum wid’me? What Are you lookin’ at?  Look at me!

But all in all: Doing the best I can.. and then some.

SUPERMOON

That old-feller-ouette looks like Bill standing there.

My Mom had posted pictures earlier today and Bill said that they’re calling it “Super Moon” because last time it got this close was around 20 years ago.

That got me to thinking about that ‘thing’ that is on a maybe-collision course with us.  Maybe you’ve seen this?:  http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=Elenin&orb=1

I wonder what that other moon’s gonna look like when it passes near us this coming October…. I wonder if we’re gonna get the giant hailstones, since they say it’s a comet. But some say it’s some kinda planet.. others say it’s the mother ship coming to beam up Reverend Gore and his followers.  Either way it’s interesting to watch..  and I can’t wait to see how climate change has caused it all…  just like the last big earthquake.  I think maybe the G-warming is also causing all the wars, rumors of wars.. nations against nations.. all that.. I know I get pretty agitated when I work out and it’s hot.  I know that birth-pangs are agitating also having been near the fallout thereof.

Just a thought..

AARP needs some new blood (and my responses to friends’ comments.. )

I guess what I saw and documented in Facebook manifested a week or so later in the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami  (look at the comment and then decide for yourself).

Remember that good comes with the bad.. no matter how bad it may be.  Take heart friends, because His Spirit will be poured out on all flesh:  “When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him”.

AARP needs some new blood.. and I think me and many of my HS friends are just what they need..

So…Regarding the AARP card received in the mail today like many of my old dear friends…When we got it I asked LilRed: “do we like.. get ‘old people discounts’? Stuff like that?”

“Yah..” she said.

“Let’s fill it out and send it in!” I replied.

…I think with the rate of inflation we are seeing we may actually need it.. being old people and all that. I think an AARP card may be worth a few Krugerrands before long.

Thinking of quitting.. shutting the company down and trying to get on Government assistance.. Lone Star Card.. all that… a lot of the people at the store using them drive better and more expensive cars than we do. It can’t be all bad, right? I’m tired of being what they call the “rich”.. and paying out the gazoo in taxes and working my a__ off… But then again.. what happens to all the jobs we created? Ah well they can get assistance too! NP. Someone else will pay for it all. :p

‎15% of our company volume ends up in our pockets..out of which we pay 15.3 percent into SS and Medicare, which we will NEVER see any of. We then pay federal taxes also..which they take somewhere and burn it in a giant hole in the Arizona desert.. Then we pay $426 a month for an insurance policy that only covers us when we reach a certain point (it just went up thanks to Obamacare after we had a price we thought we were locked in to).. (which means $12,000 out of pocket at least, for a larger medical event)…  LilRed clips coupons still and shops frugally.. We pay our bills on time.. We do not eat out.. have had no vacation for more than 3-1/2 years.. 70 plus percent of our company gross goes to subcontractors and other labor (we pay a very fair labor price.. ask them all. AND there are no Unions).. The other 15% or so goes to material and other expenses… and we are having to cut our markup to compete in a market that Business Week Magazine just last year rated as the best economy in a metropolitan area in the entire United States? What is wrong with this picture?

I think the Government is successfully leveling the playing field.. and we are soon to see what it brings… but I digress.

Long and short of it is we better all be ready to sacrifice (like many already are) and more than anything else pray for this country. Our grandchildren are going to wonder what kind of idiots we are for accumulating a debt like this and then making them pay for it all.. in essence selling them all out for a bowl of lintels. They will be slaves to the debt we are accumulating.

SOMEBODY TAKE THE CHECKBOOK OUT OF THESE IDIOTS’ HANDS!

(and that means all of them for you thin skinned ones.. liberal and conservative alike…heh heh) For all my thick skinned friends of both persuasions and the middle… let’s get to work and make the kind of “change” that will benefit everyone and not some corporation or power hungry political faction..

“Have you heard about the ‘vast Libertarian conspiracy’? WE WANT TO TAKE OVER THE GOVERNMENT AND THEN L-E-A-V-E Y-O-U A-L-O-N-E!!..”

Then there are personal comments with names named (like you Laura and Ashley), so then I said:   We do pray as led for many of you and it is time that we start looking for answers.  We love our friends and family whether you realize it or not.  We are here for you.. contact us if you wish to discuss.  I keep hearing: Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision”.  What does that mean to you?

I had a friend lament on that thread that we are shutting our business down.. so just for clarification here is my response.. and I will add to my comments above with this:

We aren’t shutting down the company because we don’t give up. I was mostly making a point.. that if everyone did just give up and shut down due to lack of incentive, the whole system will implode because the economy is at the tipping point. More people taking out of the system than are putting in. In addition to the mandatory amounts paid to Uncle Sam, we do our part by giving what we should to some very worthy charities and ministries.. which we won’t stop doing either. I hate that the gov’t thinks that I should contribute to what they consider worthwhile causes and want as much from us as they can get to do just that. This is really hurting a lot of small ministries and charitable organizations, not to mention the larger ones.

What happens in our business model is this: if work slows down we will make the same amount as we did before, just less hassle for us, because I strap on the tools and do the work myself. On the downside there are a lot of families that would suffer because they have to find work and contracts elsewhere. Where is the reward for small businesses that DO create jobs? There isn’t except for the fact that we know we are doing the right thing. The thought of playing “Lifeboat” with people’s livelihoods is not one I like to entertain. We are really busy now and in the “Bid ’til you die” mode.. lol. Lots of great leads.. we are doing some projects, but lots of people only looking for the cheapest way out. God will take care of all of us and He will bring the work. I keep seeing a tidal wave coming in the Spirit.. I hope that the fallout of this wave is an abundance (March 1st I saw it and vocalized it and March 5th I posted it,) .. that is our “hope”: that God with intervene in our nation and bring the miraculous “change”. I won’t settle for cheap imitations (the government as god for example.. “hope and change”)

It sounds like too many special interests influencing them.. interesting that all the unions pushed for it and now are getting waivers.. Good enough for everyone else but not them, huh?  When is everyone going to wake up and see that it’s about the power for these unions?  (Power) for most of these politicians?  If these unions’ leaders are “True Believers” why don’t they sacrifice and work for free?  Same goes for anyone who claims to believe in their cause?   The acid test?  Take the money away and see who the true believers are.  Sadly, I don’t think we will find many.  My own opinion.. but see if that ain’t the truth.   I challenge the Union leaders and rep’s to work for free and see if they are really for “the worker”.

To all my classmates:   you must join us in the AARP uprising.. we’re beating our wheelchairs and walkers into swords.. and fashioning them into crude firearms.. some of us are even setting booby traps using our false teeth. Limp on over and join our cause. To arms my dear colleagues!

Then a friend  (Greta) commented on how sorry she was that we may shut down out company.  So I clarified:

We aren’t shutting down the company because we don’t give up. I was mostly making a point.. that if everyone did just that, the whole system will implode because the economy is at the tipping point. More people taking out of the system than are putting in. In addition to the mandatory amounts paid to Uncle Sam, we do our part by giving what we should to some very worthy charities and ministries.. which we won’t stop doing either. I hate that the gov’t thinks that I should contribute to what they consider worthwhile causes and want as much from us as they can get to do just that. This is really hurting a lot of small ministries and charitable organizations, not to mention the larger ones.

I won’t settle for cheap imitations (the government as god for example.. “hope and change”)

Anyway, that’s kinda how I see it.. for what it’s worth to you.  Look at this objectively (if you can) and understand that we are not doing our children or grandchildren any favors if we don’t really change the course we’re on, paved with whatever intentions.

Pray for our nation if you believe in God. If you don’t, then (sincerely) ask Him this in a prayer anyway:  “God if you are real then reveal yourself to me.. speak to me… make yourself real”  Then see what happens, you may be awestruck.  I know I was.

If you try this and nothing happens then watch out for the Jackhammer or Dynamite, God help us.
