Way too freaky

Ok this is kind of freaky I have to admit, so I am going around you tube looking for information on the 7.7 earthquake that hit in arkanas, so listening to that and looking at comments, the usual sky is falling crowd, one of them posts the government is planning a major earthquake in may and it is called the " Nation Level Excercise 2011" So I google and they are having an exercise planned, whatever freak show, so Another video claims the government has set the date for it previously as well, ok freak job I will bite, so I do another google. and come up with this
greywalker7: Now the really freaky part they predicted the exact size three years ago on here
The sumatra quake was 7.7 coincidently, now notice that arkansas recently had the dead birds falling from the sky? HAARP, the High frequency radio test unit the government has in ALaska, now I thought its kind of bullshit too, but consider that Tesla's Earthquake machine was based on frequencies causing the quakes, Mythbusters confirmed it (even though they claimed it was busted at the end of the show) More to think about, watching this town hall meeting and hearing people talk about the covert actions o the oil companies, now beyond that, the earthquakes are supposedly being caused by natural gas fissures caused from re introducing polluted water into the crust, why woud they even be doing that in a possilbe major earthquake area to begin with?
Notice what these people are talking about, this is crazy, from a townhall meeting and they are talking about things they are seeing that are not supposed to be there wtf?

The real problem with Oil and Natural Gas

Drilling for oil has always bothered me not because of oil itself, but because of the release of pressure beneath our crust. While oil is lighter than water it also carries a higher PSI, think of it like this, hydrolics needs pressure in order to operate, water while it creates some pressure lacks enough to say operate a hydraulics system on a piece of machinery. Now as this oil is released from the ground it of course creates a pressure loss even though water is being injected to force out the oil, This has to allow shifts within our earth crust. What will the consequences for this be in the future? Who knows for sure? While I love oil, I do not believe we can drill ourselves off the planet not because it may run out, but simply because of crust shifts which will of course create earthquakes and other problems down the road. Sounds radical? ya it is and IM not aware of anyone else coming up with this theory currently, I have always hoped someone of importance did or would think of this and push it forward.
Recently the earthquake in Arkansas was more than likely from another source, drilling for natural gas. Geologists are assuming that it could be caused from re injecting the ground with waste water from the natural gas removal process, this is creating fissures, are we completely insane? One why the hell are we pumping crap untreated water into the earth, and two, why would we even mess with foundation upon which we live on? People, we cannot go anywhere else, there is no other planet we can fly to in order to save the day, money is worthless if we cannot continue on living.

UFC 127

Well the  Penn vs Fitch fight was prtty good, not sure what Fitch was doing hugging penns legs so much, why you waste all your energy and ability to point by taking someone down who is legendary at takedown defense is beyond me. The decision was a bit disapointing, while it was a close fight, it certainly was no clear cut wins in the first two rounds.
A bit disapointed in the bisbing fight, that never should have been a matchup to begin with, Bisbing was obviously a superior fighter from the get go with Jorje only being a brawler, the Illegal knee was unfortuante,  I tend to think Jorje was just taking to long to get up and Bisbing was trying to time his knee to land at the exact moment Jorje's feet came under him an I do not believe the fight should have been allowed to continue but Jorje came back strong, Poor Matchup IMO and it is Time for a Bisbing Title fight.

Giving someone a better tomorrow

It is easy to lose sight of what really matters in life, Its no secret that over the past three years things have been pretty rough for me, with my father suffering a terminal Illness, my sisters husband suffering one, and me of course taking a huge hit in the pocket book via the Economy and having to sacrifice work for taking care of My father, something I surely do not regret, and I am damn proud of actually, but after I somehow became focused on my own woe’s, and not on those of others. It is easy in the rat race of America to focus on having the new and best of everything, and in reality, we already have it, at one time the American dream was ust having a stable job, a family, and a house. Now, it is the most expensive toys you can possibly fined coupled with as much fun as possible. Now don’t get me wrong, having nice things is good, and having fun and enjoying life paramount, but the toys takes us away from what really matters IMO, that is life experiences ,now for me that is not the newest shiniest of anything, but rather what I can do for others.
I like being an employer, although It has always been seasonal for me, I like knowing I give people something they really need, money to take care of their needs, as a landlord I like knowing that I am giving someone a home to live in, and not just a dump, but a nice home.
But still I want to take it farther, traveling to various countries the absolute most heartbreaking thing I have ever came upon were children starving. Adults I tend to be a bit harder with, but Children, man, what did they ever do to deserve being born in a position to just eat once a day? And hell, their meal is what an American would just consider a snack I remember my fist real reality to this was on a train going to Wisconsin and sitting next to me was a beautiful woman from Liberia, we struck up a conversation and of course I pried as much as possible aout her county, IM like what is your staple food, her reply “rice” ok so IM like rice and what? “well we make sauces for it” now this just dumbfounded me, no meat in it, “you don’t put monkey in it or something” no was her reply, just rice. Now up to that point most of my travels have been to western countries with the most poverty being in a Mexican border town, absolutely nothing of comparison, and then Russia, now Moscow is a big beautiful city that is one of the most expensive to live in in the world, and here and there you see someone holding a sign up for food, or some old lady trying to sell some dried fish I would not use for bate, but outside the city you start seeing collapsed apartment buildings, that’s strange I think, why don’t they just tear the damn things down? Then you see someone go walking in carrying their groceries, wtf?
So then I hit the Philippines and my first thoughts and sights walking around is simply amazement, there is a tall modern buiding, or a nice new home, and right in-between is a shack that in America would be something some kid would build for a playhouse, but there, people live in it, I kept walking and underneath a parking garage I see a man giving a bath to his two daughters with a five gallon bucket, that really still sticks in my mind. Later I traveled around to other parts of the Philippines and there huts will become more common, there will be houses, but many will not have a shower, only a bucket and a pale to wash with. And those are the fortunate ones, in the villages people seem to be happy and helping each other, but as you get back into other cities, you find the unfortunate Pilipino street children, those that are able beg, I like handing coins out to them, but you have to be careful giving them to much or the other children will attack them for it, and worse, adults will take it from them. Usually I make them dance or sing, something to earn the coin as I do not believe in simply giving. But that changes quickly the first time you step over a child who is just laying there starving, there is nothing, nothing more heart wrenching than first hand seeing a child who no longer has the energy to move, who’s skin hangs from their bones like rags.
SO I ask you, what is important in your life? What really matters? For me I have decided that I really want to get rich, one , so I can build a castle, that would be pretty damn cool, but my greatest dream is so I can go back to those poor countries, and give something back, maybe help a village put in a septic system, dig some wells, and most of all, help educate, as it is not even this generation that will benefit, its those down the road, I really hope that will be my legacy, giving someone a better tomorrow.

Pensions forgotten

With all the fury going on in Wisconson one major factor is overlooked and for the life of me I cannot understand why, that is pensions. For some strange unknown reason governments think they can tap into peoples pension funds, and for some reason, with all the arguing and bickering over losing “collective bargaining rights” the pension is again overlooked. Are we as a society so concerned with the know we forget about the future?
My Father had been a part of the Almagated Transit Union for over 20 years, he worked hard, attended his union meetings, and always despite being screwed over by the boiler makers union, always was a union man. But then the company he worked for started going downhill, and they took cuts, and took more cuts, and finally simply went on strike, the business folded and now nobody had a job, however the one thing that was absolute worse than losing a job, was the simple fact he lost his pension. As it turns out money had not been going where it was supposed to, and their union representative had not bothered doing his job and checking to see if that money was indeed going where it belonged. So there stood the workers, most nearly ready for retirement now wondering what they would do for an income, think about htat for a minute, when the music stops, will you have a chair?
SO I ask, why on earth are these thieves who take from your pension not prosecuted like the worthless rats they are? Why the hell is the one thing that you worked so hard for, ever in danger of being touched to begin with? To me touching peoples pensions is reason for a call to arms, goddamn it, let people retire, they earned it.

Capitalism vs Marxism

The current situation within Wisconson is a classic case of Capitalism vs Marxism, Unions are heavily Marxist in Nature and if one pays attention to the Leftist media today it openly portrays the exact same Ideals which pushed Communism to great heights merely a few decades ago, discouraging ingenuity and indpendence for the "good of the state"
Unions have caused most of the economic and job decline within America and Unions within our government have contributed to unprecedented financial shortfalls and unemployment.
Consider this, government employee's have over the past two years garnered higher wages and better benefits while private sectors have been taxed heavily and your subjects such as senior citizens have lost benefits and your average person has a higher retirement age in order to pay for the "state" and lower retirement ages for those within said selective group.
It is important for people to strongly analyze what they believe America is, and where it is headed

Sportbike Vs Crusier Price Mentality

For years Harley rider have spent close to 20 thousand dollars on bikes with older technology and very little modern Research and Development, With grins that cover their faces,  they ride, or talk about how they would ride on their expensive machines.
Yet sportbike Japanese Riders spend several thousand dollars less on the absolute latest technology in every sense, on a bike with Research and Development that is constantly competing at the highest level, but if you mention Spending the Harley Equivilent price on a Ducati, MvAgusta or Aprilia, most Immediatly Scoff in half grumpyness.
Are we really that spoiled that we are afraid to pay for quality? Isnt cutting edge technology worth every penny, especially when one compares it side by side to a bike with decades old technology?
While only a small percentage of us sportbike Riders actually ride on the racetrack, shouldnt those of us who do especially be willing to shell out more cash for that top of the line racing technology?
I for one feel blessed at this time to enjoy a japanese bike, it handles great, runs smooth, and does everything comparable to its italian Cousins, but I will not hesitate when both my skills, and pocket book allow me to pull the trigger on a more expensive bike. I for one hope to enjoy the race track to its fullest on the latest technology someday, and I sure as hell will not be grumbling.

No pricetag for time well spent

Today I was out in the shed cleaning up tools left over from an oil change on My fathers Four wheeler, one of his most prized possessions, I remember going with him to buy it, telling him to pick the one he wanted as it might be the last one he ever bought, never thinking that it really would be. I at the time owned a racing quad, ran good and enjoyed it. Dad and I would go out and take rides together, we had a great time, but for some reason I felt the need to purchase one like Dads, so I did, I picked out the Model just above his and sold the racing quad, not really knowing why I just did, well instead of being light years up the trail from him I would only be a short distance ahead of him, riding at a reasonable pace instead of tearing up the land like badger digging for a rodent. This gave me more time with dad, more time stopping to BS about how much fun we were having, how beautiful the scenery was we were looking at, and more time just to enjoy all the same things. For the next two years we rode every chance we could get, and after dads injury and sickness kicked in, that time shortened a bit more each time. Dad liked riding his four-wheeler from his house with his dog, Zack and going for walks on my sisters land a couple miles from his house, but as he became more and more Ill, and I worried as he was not always in cell distance, I forbade him from going, for the sake of safety, he was devastated but he did not argue, which let me know it was the right thing, but I still tried to go for short rides with him. Then he became so Ill he could no longer ride at all, and all he talked about was that damn four wheeler, and how when he got better he was going to go riding again, and how him and Zack were going to go enjoy the ride together. Well he only got one more ride on it, after his stroke he really couldn’t see very well at all, but I let him go for what should be a short ride in the alley behind my house thinking I could just run alongside him, hell no, he took off, my mind raced with visions of him ramming into a light pole, and soon he disappeared from site, he came back and got an earful from me, but its always easier to ask forgiveness than permission.
That would be his last ride, and no as I closed the door to the shed, taking what little light trickled upon the four wheeler, I realized that there was no price on earth that ever could compare with the experiences we had together, and that no matter how much money I spent on a four wheeler I really didn’t need, it was some of the best money I ever spent .

New vs Old Automobile

Recently I sold my 2005 Dodge Pickup I purchased Brand new in 05, damn nice truck with power everything, the paintjob was one of the coolest features as the dark blue changed color in the light to look black as well, the aluminum alloy wheels set it all off nicely. But I found it just sitting there, rarely used after business slowed, driving it was nice, hell like a car, better than any car 20 years ago even, but it was just sooo nice. Everytime I went into the woods I just worried about it getting scratched, on job sites I was constantly nagging the help to not scratch the paint as they leaned over the side to grab some tools. And then the deciding factor, out hunting this winter I started to slide off the road, there looming was a tree who's only future would be a toothpick as I slid within a hairs breath of it, cursing under my breath I thought of just how expensive this could be. Pondering I decided the dozen or so times a year I drove the truck no longer warrented owning it, so I put her up for sale and two weeks later She was gone.
Now I decided to get my Dads old 74 powerwagon going that he built from the ground up in the early 80s.
It fired right up, thats good, cept litterally, I forgot to tighten the fuel line when messing with the carburator and ended up with an engine fire as the fire licked at the firewall (how quant) I ran and grabbed an extinguisher and ended the fires destiny. So the past few days have been fixing burt wiring and tinkering to get her running good again, I grumbled, frustrated with the cramped positions and hurt knee's, but I found myself doing something I have not done in years, I came online and started looking at aftermarket parts, little things to add here and there to better the ride. My lost passion for modifying a vehicle had returned, suddenly owning a truck was fun again. So here I think that maybe while new certainly has its place, keeping an old rig around can keep that old flame going (pardon the pun) and lets face it, new cars or nice, but nothing compares to the style of old.

When you wake up and say WTF

I went to bed early tonight, and that is never a good Idea, I crawl out of bed at 1 am, sit down to check my "social networking" turn on the computer, the TV, and what sounds like QVC is on, great infomercial, and I think I hear the word "vibrator" wha? and sure as hell, there it is, Some womans future BOB on the screen for the low low price of 69.95, I rub my eyes as it continues through differnt models. Now I have only one major question about this, why no demonstrations :D

The Energy Within

Now I have always had strange energy flow, usually it effects clocks an watches, I have always had trouble wearing watches, especially any gold ones and they quickly stop when worn by me, digital have been hit and miss but usually they quit working as well, and clocks you say? well ya, clocks have been known to speed up and slow down around me, no IM not doing any Illegal or even Legal narcotics, its just how things have always been, I carry one hell of a Static charge, to date the coolest thing I have one was shut off A tv merely by my static charge, now this morning I took that to a whole new level when my VCR had fallen behind the TV and I am repositioning it, bam, TV comes on, now I dono if you believe in symbolism or not, but it turns on to the state schedual for senate and legislators. Since I have always had political ambitions maybe its telling me something.

The loss of Mubarak

So there are calls everywhere for the removal of Mubarak, horrible dictator, citizens not making much, on and on, and this is true, however what is not being reported upon is what he has done, He is a leader that has pushed for his national treasures to be just that, and even more, world treasures, Tourism has boomed and probably accounts for a good part of Egypts overall gross. And last, he has been a valuable US ally, yet the US government seems content with throwing him under the bus, letting Egypt degrade into the hell Hole which is Iraq and Afganistan, Willing to take the chance of an even worse dictator coming along, who is not friendly with the West.
It seems Apparent to me that one it would have been to America's best interest to stay out of the entire thing, and two, if it is going to step in, be for stabilization rather than a mob with no direction on any level. I shudder to see what happens in the middleast, but I suspect the relative calm will now be gone as history has shown what happens when we put our nose where it does not belong.

Silva Vs Belfort, The fight of the year, or not

So Silva Vs Belfort was widely touted as the fight of the year, and it certainly had all the potential to be with two legends stepping into the ring together, One a long lanky fighter seemingly unbeatable and with a look and fighting style o Dahalism from street fighter, And the other, a champion before the Spider even started fighting, with a nickname suggesting he himself was incredible but suffering from his own inner demons being his only limitation to his potential greatness.
The weigh in was classic all be it an Anorexic looking Belfort, dropped to much weight I thought, my hopes sank, but then the weigh in, the stare down and words exchanged were as intense as there can be, quickly Vitor's lack of Nutrition fled my mind and I beat my chest in anticipation for the spider squishing.
And it happened, they squared off, no touching of the gloves, the hatred fuming in both of them as two of the best circled each other in anticipation, feints feints and more feints as each stomped their foot like childhood bullies trying to intimidate the other into seemingly running out of the cage, And more Feinting, and standing around looking, then Andersons dance was all Belfort could stand as he lunged forward with Bruce Lee's Patonted straight blast, The Spider Stepped to the side and a couple lackluster low kicls later Vitor connects, to the ground, back up, My pulse races, the Spider is done now, its over, and it was, a single white belt kick straight to the face of the Phenom and his light dimmed as his legs lost communication to his brain.
Just like that the King Of Ego got to beat his chest some more, run off about training under one of the most Ridiculous Self important actors of All time Mr Seagal, and doubts running through all our minds as to who can possibly beat him, But calls of GSP echo through the web, I know better Mr Arachnid, white men fall to you like clothes off a stripper, I have one name Mr Arachnid, your Kryptonite from that island off china, Okami shall be your exterminator.

How lucky you are to not live under a Dictator

Very little receives the attention that it should in today’s media, We here all about problems in other countries, pointing out how good we have it without Media censorship, a couple minutes later they will talk about the Potus having censored the media or some Mayor calling for the seizure of a video showing Police stomping some teen burglars head into the ground. Next we hear about how fortunate we are to live in a country where you are free to to vote for either of two candidates for Potus, while pointing out other countries (third world) do not even get the chance to vote, or vote in rigged Elections, 2000 elections aside the little fact that other western countries seem to have multiple candidates to elect as their president, but that is not so significant, only two parties matter right? Next we are told about Some middle astern thug who gassed his own people, who is suppressing rights and building nuclear weapons, in a small paragraph somewhere in our own media will be a lightly mentioned almost nonchalant "and today the Pentagon confirmed that yes soldiers in the US military and Civilians in four states were exposed to chemical and biological weapons during the 60s in some obscure operation to test said effects of agents on humans, but rest assured the testing no longer goes on, I felt relieved, especially after the next press release confirmed that Nazi Scientists were smuggled into the United States under project paperclip, I guess I should count myself as being lucky that I was not alive during this time, and not been involved in a car accident and had plutonium shoved in my veins.
Feeling a bit better about myself I turn on the news and see the TSA promoting how great they are to work for, full benefits which cover your family as well, 20 year retirement guaranteed, three weeks paid vacation, 14 sick days, join the worlds largest employer, the US government, in small print somewhere the government debates on raising the retirement age from 65 to 68, some calling for it to be in the late 70s, in a small sentence somewhere I find the average life expectancy is 77 in America, fortunate am I that my family has good genes and I get to add another three years onto that, cant wait for those 9 glorious years of retirement after nearly 50 years of working.
But I am encouraged, I own my Home, as a matter of fact, I own several, nobody can take that away from me, and home ownership was up under the Bush administration, yea, I feel good, nobody can tell me anything, but shit, the neighbors are telling me they do not like my yard, screw them, the HOA filed a grievance against the Jones who had company parking in front of their garage in the driveway, good job I missed out on that, I saw on the news where some war Veteran was told to take down his Flag, how dare he flaunt that in front of his house, I still have some freedom on my property, I did not succumb to such Nazi tactics, I pay my lease in the form of Taxes for my home that I paid off from the banks that never can be paid off from the government, at least that’s one payment down right?Yes, to live free of such nonsense perpetuated by Tyranical Nutbags who suppress the civilians giving little and bolster only the government agenda and those within their own special group for at least I was allowed the privlage to vote for that nutbag, very fortunate indeed
Isnt Freedom Grand?

Unemployment numbers not what they seem

Official Unemployment numbers released by the United States Government consistently hover around the 9.5 percent mark with the Obama administration touting the recent supposed drop in applications. Problem is as with most things government, it is simply incorrect. The real number is easily doubled that, unemployment numbers are based upon the number of people actually receiving unemployment, this does not cover those denied, nor those cases which are pending, it seems that the state of Montana has its system figured out to the maximum to screw over its beneficiary. Montana like many states simply delays applications in order to have a "perceived lower unemployment rate" these delays can run three months or more while a decision is rendered, actually, while nobody does anything hoping you simply quit filing your claim and go away in the event you actually follow through with it you will receive a lump sum check after you have already lost everything not receiving benefits owed to you. Which to me is just another typical government program which people pay into and cannot receive when they truly need it, yet another reason why your money should stay in your pocket for YOUR spending or investing purposes.

Change in the Middleast

Why for so many years has America supported the Dictatorships all over the world, and now suddenly support those trying to overthrow those regimes, where is the loyalty? What happens when these people gaining more freedom, become concious of the simple fact the US armed these Dictatorships and aided in the oppression of its people?
