A rare breed, a true Native Floridian, whose family has lived out in more rural parts of the state for many generations and continues to do so. Known to be very self-sufficient by growing or hunting their own food and building their own homes. Not at all like what most people nowadays picture as a Floridian. A Florida Cracker is a true Southerner.

28 Feb 09 Stimulus bill (aka Porkulas, aka Marxisulas)

An excellent explanation of what the Stimulus bill can’t do and a
warning of what it can do !

*What a profound short little paragraph that says it all!!!

*

*”You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the
wealthy out of freedom.
**What one person receives without working for, another person must
work for without receiving.
**The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government
does not first take from somebody else.
**When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work
because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the
other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody
else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about
the end of any nation.
**You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

** ~~~~~* *Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 – 2005 ~~~~

04 Feb 09 Lesson from Y2K

Did you learn anything from the “Y2K” scare? Seems like some people did?

Do you remember the governement and press telling you to “get supplies” and to “prepare”?

No doubt, you probably laughed it off and while you’d guessed there might be something interesting, it wasn’t going to be “life threatening” — you knew all the brightest minds in India had been working for YEARS changing all those XX to 19XX.

You knew nothing would happen. But do you remember 12:59:59 on dec 31 1999? Did you even THINK about it, or were you too drunk.. did you even just bearly slightly think about it and hold your breath? Maybe watch a good old fashioned Ediston light bulb to see if it might flicker?

I remember laughing it off for a long time before, yet still just watching the lights when it happened… I would not say I was tricked; we didnt have a “3 days supply of food and water” just in case. But.. I still watched the lights, even just to say “see I told you so” — I was a doubter… A disbeliever.. but I watched. Some small part of my brain was WASHED.

Well..someone learned… Al Gore learned.. he saw some of us in total fear.. and he saw that some of us if bashed about the head enough times *might* just start to believe.

Thus.. The global warming franchise was invented.

04 Feb 09 Maybe numbers just “confuse them”

"500 MILLION AMERICANS LOSE JOBS EVERY MONTH"

"I’ve been to all 57 states"

"I didnt know when I paid someone that I had to report TAXES"

"It was a small mistake.. I paid the 150,000 in extra taxes"

Maybe, just maybe.. they dont understand numbers?   Say it isn’t so.. Imagine finding out they thought "a trillion" was less than 100 bucks total..

They don’t seem that smart.. it could be possible… maybe they didn’t listen in math class… Boy are we going to feel stupid when when they are finally found responsibly for the damage to our country and the economy when their excuse is "We never studied math all that good" (nor English)
