Never Judge A Book By Its Meth Addict


Ok, so as I said earlier on Friday the wifey had to shop, had is the key word 🙄 ,  she is in one of those ridiculous shops for skinny people ( BananaRepublic) I can’t set foot in because I may rage–long story but I’m not a  man built like an anorexic teen age boy, I have shoulders and shit–so I waited outside while the wifey shopped.

I see a few people holding a dingy orange banner with the words People yada yada I couldn’t give a rats ass, did I mention I was shopping with the wife? 😛 but after a few minutes–aeons in shopping time– I took notice and my RAWR took over, why are these hippies and a meth addict out here talking about Climate change? Now you guys know I go all-spastic when people say CLIMATE CHANGE rather than GLOBAL WARMING.

So, I casually walk over and say to one of them, ‘you know they are ignoring you because you are using the passive voice.’ Here a nice lady very Badgeresque, by that I mean silver fox hair and glasses, asks what do I mean, I could tell the meth addict was annoyed. I said, ‘ you are using wording specifically designed by Frank Luntz W’s spin-doctor and global warming denier.

She and a nerdy type older guy tell me that scientist have embraced the term because is –I interrupt, ‘ because it’s politically correct, the language of right-wing corporatist’. At this point the meth addict gets all angry and starts on me that I’M the problem because I don’t understand the issue—I peek inside the store and the wife is not near the cash register so I let it rip.

I said, ‘the problem is not me it’s you man,’ yes I switched to broski mode, ‘People are walking by you guys and not giving you the time because you are using safe non-urgent language.’ It should never be anything other than GLOBAL WARMING, these are urgent words— by now we all cool down and we kinda hear each other, so I asked who backs you guys financially and they say they have a large coalition which I took with a grain of salt, hell I meant to look them up but forgot about them until badger mentioned them. The meth lab asks if I’m involved and I slip and say that I’m part of a small online community that is very AWARE and make it a point to keep the dialogue going. He asked if I would join and I said yes they then gave me the flyer which did not survive the trip home.

So I guess it’s the old never judge a book by it’s cover lesson revisited, as I just went to their website and it looks legit and very relevant. I swore they were just a few tree hugging loons no more relevant than the La Roche loons.

So the dick of the week award goes to me:

DOTW

Hell I may even go to this thing of theirs 😀

    If Scotland votes yes, my hope is they go with public-owned banking. Ellen Brown is my favorite financial author, BTW: http://www.scotsman.com/news/alf-young-cashing-in-on-state-owned-banking-1-2654306 ….8-)

      Hi 4E – Just a flyby for me, too, but I had to post one of my fave Bagpipe tunes in honor of Scotland’s historic vote today.

      Have a good one, catch you laterz!

    • classicalgastoo says:

      Co-signing that, 4E – anything else is an open invite for financial woes.

      How’s you today? Are you ready to come home? 😉

      • FOUR EYES says:

        Hiya Pretty Kitteh!..Got to wave at RF this AM..A little worn out today–yesterday was exhausting, but productive. Have to stay here thru TUES..Tired of mooshy food already, too..Two weeks is long enough away for a homebody….8-)

        • classicalgastoo says:

          What is this ‘retirement’ of which you speak? I do not think that word means what you think it means. 😉

          I hear you on the mooshy food – when you get home and get another adjustment I’m betting you find that your range of choices will expand. Baby steps for another week or two, maybe. your mouth heals faster than any other part of you, according to my dentist.
          Pasta might be a good option.

          Hurry home, those kittehs need you – not to mention Mrs. E!

    Canada’s Secretive Treaty With China Further Diminishes Aboriginal Rights

    As Sanderson said, the FIPA deal is: “Bad for First Nations, because it effectively puts another thumb on the scale of decision making in the regulatory process; one that does not favor respecting aboriginal rights.

    “Instead it favours the investments of foreigners. So, that’s bad… The fact that there’s not a carve-out in the agreement for aboriginal and treaty rights… is bad for all Canadians. Because it means the Crown is either going to respect aboriginal and treaty rights, and get sued. Or federal and provincial governments are not going to respect aboriginal and treaty rights, in which case the project will go ahead. And then the feds or the province will get sued by First Nations, and then the Crown will get sued [by Chinese investors] and Canadian taxpayers will be stuck with the bill.”

    USDA’s Greenlighting of ‘Agent Orange’ Crops Sparks Condemnation

    Following widespread outcry, Dow’s new genetically engineered corn and soybeans get approval.

    The crops are Dow AgroSciences’ Enlist corn and soybeans, engineered to be resistant to its Duo herbicide, which contains 2,4-D, a component of the notorious Agent Orange. 2,4-D has been linked to Parkinson’s, birth defects, reproductive problems, and endocrine disruption. Dow states that the new system will address the problem of weeds that have become resistant to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s widely-used Roundup.

    “Let us all contemplate the fact that Representative Mark Sanford of South Carolina is running for re-election unopposed.

    Sanford was, of course, the governor who snuck off to Argentina for an assignation while his befuddled aides claimed he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail.

    Now he’s the Facebook Congressman, who announced his breakup with his Argentine-squeeze-turned-fiancée in a 2,346-word posting that was mainly a whine about his ex-wife, the divorce settlement and visitation rules. “I think I owe you my thinking on this personal, but now public matter,” he told the world. Which most definitely had not asked for the information.”

    “LOS ALTOS, Calif. — Michele Raffin’s approach to life, love and especially birds has changed dramatically since the day nearly 15 years ago when she stopped to rescue an injured dove by the side of a road.

    It was a white dove, the sort often released at weddings as a symbol of love and faithfulness — for doves, like many birds, tend to mate for life. And Ms. Raffin, a former Silicon Valley executive who had no experience with birds, was smitten.

    Polling booths are busy up and down Scotland, in the one I cast my vote in, one of the folk who work there was saying most OAP’s come and vote in the morning and they were a raucous crowd by all accounts!

  12. 10 Reasons to vote YES for an Independent Scotland
    Below is a selection of the most heard reasons, comments and opinions from Yes-voters. If you agree with most of these reasons then make sure you vote YES at Scotland’s Referendum for Scottish Independence.

    1. Taking Responsibility by moving all Governing Powers to Scotland

    You would like to get the opportunity to move more responsibilities to a more local Scottish Democracy instead of accept the fate of Westminster’s plans? With all the powers moved to Scotland, we can make a fairer Scotland.

    2. Get the Government we choose

    The Tories are in power in the UK, although the majority of Scots have chosen the opposition. The Scots are outnumbered ten to one, so whatever government the Scots will vote for in a UK General Election, it’s highly unlikely that a Scottish Political Party will ever be part of a UK Government representing Scotland’s needs. With the rising votes for UKIP in England, our goals towards a fair and harmonious society will diminish even further.

    3. No more building Nuclear Weapons

    We should stop building Nuclear Weapons in Scotland, it is unethical and morally wrong. Under “The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons” the UK expects all other countries to sign this agreement to disarm Nuclear Weapons, but has excluded itself. Under the treaty it continues to build more Nuclear Weapons in Scotland. If you believe in peace instead of war, let’s stop building weapons of mass destruction and start caring for the people and the planet.

    4. Securing Oil Funds in North Sea

    Scotland’s Oil reserves are vast. Most of the revenue and tax made from Oil goes directly to Westminster. There are claims that Scotland will be one of the wealthiest nations in Europe if we become independent.

    5. Scotland has the resources and finances

    Scotland has the resources and finances to become independent. One of the early myths created by the No Campaign has been debunked and even the Unionists agree that Scotland has what it takes to become independent and the Scottish people will be better off financially.

    6. Believing in the creation of more jobs

    With an ever rising energy and electricity demand in Europe, Scotland could be one of the global leading suppliers. Scotland has many natural resources that allow sustainable energy for which more jobs are created. Furthermore when Scotland becomes Independent, many centralized services and offices, like Tax Offices, DVLA etc have to be set up in Scotland. This will create many jobs and jobs provide an income, which is good for the economy and beneficial for us all.

    7. Believing in the benefits for Scotland and yourself as individual

    Not only will there be more jobs, the future Government already has plans for creating better Healthcare and improve the situation for Pensioners and people with children. We’ll keep the minimum wages, scrap the bedroom tax, etc.
    Find out more: Scotland’s Future and Yes Scotland

    8. Believing in a more equal wages

    The difference in wage in London compared to Scotland for example is huge. This gap is growing and with the current UK Government the richest only seem to get richer and the poor becoming poorer. With a smaller gap between the highest and lowest incomes, there will be less jealousy, greed and more happiness.
    Find out more: Yes Scotland and Michael Meacher MP

    9. Believing that Scotland and England have opposite Political and Social views

    We love Scotland and we love England. Why should both countries suffer from having to compromise political decisions to please both sides? Let’s respect each other and go our own way. In doing so, we’ll become better friends and neighbours then we are ever going to be in a forced political marriage.
    Find out more: The Independent and Scotland Votes

    10. Understanding that NO may lead to changes for worse

    Change is going to happen, whether you vote Yes or No. By voting NO for independence, you will have less control over the changes that are going to change, because the government who makes these decisions is still in Westminster. A No vote will be seen as an act of ‘no confidence’ in the current Scottish Government. A No vote may also be used by the UK government to withdraw powers from the Scottish Government.
    So by voting NO, not only will things be changing, things might be changing for worse.
