Admire my enormous cabbage, bitchez

Well. My goodness, that hurt. Didn’t it?

Now, if you’ll step inside, I’m just warming up the cocoon. Tea? Coffee? Artisan moonshine?

We’ve got tons of video games we haven’t finished. And have you looked the reading list lately? Oh, we’ll have a busy few weeks. Months. Very busy.

There will be a time for rage. There will be a time when we take all that anger and disappointment, wad it into a dense, burning, white-hot fist, and…

Well. Not today. Today, our anger only serves them. Today, I am rubber and 52% of the electorate is glue.

Feel free to vent. That serves a therapeutic purpose. Just stay off the newspapers and TV for a while, ‘K?

And remember — 48% of your fellow Americans feel just like you do today.

And tomorrow — hard pivot to chicken blogging!

Shoot, my favorite t-shirt has vanished off of Zazzle. It said, “I’m rubber, your gule, bitch!”

I won’t let them defeat me. I will not dine on the salad bar of despair at noon, but the AWK! AWK! of Defiance!

There is something not kosher about this. I admit Obama could have won, but it should have been much closer than this. I am also astounded that Tammy Baldwin won. She co sponsered bills that would require US Military personnel to buy their own health insurance, and their own body armor.

We are in so much trouble right now. I fear that we may be seeing the death of the United States. We must stop this death spiral. Taxes are going to go up an average of $2000.00 a year starting in February under the Obama tax plan. How fast will we start to lose civil liberties via executive order? During WWII, the Japanese Navy the Kempeitai, the Thought Police. How long until we have one here? Today I am a distraught Badger.

When I find myself in times of trouble,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom,
‘Fuck it, ain’t nuthin’

By the way cabbage is a very under-rated vegetable. Slice it thin, and lightly saute it in a frying pan with a little butter, garlic and salt. Don’t over cook. Excellent!

Isn’t cabbage just a brussel sprout on steroids?

I typically hole up in times like these. When Clinton was elected the first time I didn’t read the papers or watch the television news for three months (and I’m a news junkie). Besides, I need to finish the second draft of my book. And research another one. Who needs tv …

Is the sun going down on over there? I’d like a drink, please.

Bee you tee full cabbage, by the way. I bet it will be delicious.

Go Galt to the greatest extent you can. Decouple from the US economy. This will serve two purposes: you will give less of your money to the parasites, and make the eventual implosion arrive faster and harder.

I wonder how Obama will handle his first really huge crisis (say, losing a US city to a nuke.) Not well, I imagine.

I won’t handle it well if it happens on top of me!!

(Come to think of it, if it happens on top of me, I won’t have any handling to do at all. Forever.)

Atlas seriously needs to think about shrugging. I suspect there was a lot of voting for continuing food stamps, unemployment payments and student loan deferments going on.

Black and white doesn’t do it justice. It’s a deep purple red. After I peeled all the outer leaves off and got to the center, it still weighed three pounds.

And I have a half a dozen more just like it. Where shall I send yours, Mrs C?

We have video games we haven’t finished ourselves. And some TV on DVD we haven’t watched yet. I may take a break from politics for a while…right now, it’s just circular firing squads and increasingly desperate suggestions that get more attractive to me the more I think about my son, already burdened with $51k of debt when he isn’t even two.


Also, I’ve never understood vests or fingerless gloves. The part of me that gets cold is the extremities, and they stay cold regardless of how warm everything else is (I’ve got a blanket draped around me right now and my fingers are like ice). Wouldn’t it make more sense to wear palmless gloves and detached sleeves?

Ha! This morning I watched a doc on James Ravilious. He had taken a photo of a farmer harvesting cabbage. Later they interviewed the farmer who said that it was time consuming, cold, wet, hard work.

Of a sudden, rolling around in my brain box:

All is lost.
We are finished.
Thinking otherwise is delusional.

We will not become Europe, we will become Mexico.

I’m cancelling the cable, buying silver with the monthly savings. Adjusted all my contributions to my 401K to zero. Buying gold. Will leave what I have in it for a bit, pull it out when my employer goes tits-up next year.

Well, the stock marker voted today, albeit a bit late. It voted against Obama.

Wolfus, I am a federal employee working for the DoD. Not only am I afraid for our soldiers, our defense, but I’ve heard that they are going after our pensions to pay for SS, Medicare and now, Obama Care. There is no safe haven. My 401K is invested in the stock market and it just tanked. What next?

I’m done with politics.
So, to fill my otherwise idle hours, I dabble with digital photography. Strictly amateur. . and I hesitate to post a link here, as you all are much more talented than I.

If the settings are correct, you can download the image files to do with as you wish, just give me a little credit.

That’s a beautiful shot, and you’re welcome to link any time. Was that this Spring? I thought they lost their spots pretty young.

Mid summmer this year. The little deer was 25 feet away, but has grown more wary and I rarely see him now. They like cabbage.

I can’t garden well, and a garden probably wouldn’t survive anyway. The deer would get most of it.

Sorry about your election, Americans…I was rooting for yaz. Some people just have to learn the hard way, I guess.

I agree with EZnSF…buy gold and silver, they have nowhere to go but up up up 🙂

@Skandia Recluse…you got a picture of Bambi! 🙂

I love cabbage too. I cut up one piece of bacon in small pieces, brown it a bit and then cook shredded cabbage in the bacon grease. Along with a bit of onion if I am ambitious. A dash of soy soyce is good instead of salt. And I have a friend that makes excellent cabbage rolls.

I have quite a few friends who retired to Mexico and let me tell ya, life is pretty good there. Contrary to what you might think, health care is excellent and inexpensive. There are many really nice places to live and it’s a very polite society. Nobody bothers you with a bunch of taxes, rules & shit. You do the paperwork, pay the govt fees, mind your own bidness and they leave you the hell alone.

The funny thing is that many of the illegals who were forced to return after our crash are starting their own small businesses having learned how from us…so their middle class is growing while ours is shrinking.
