good deal

This economy reminds me of a 40 year old Rambler.  No matter how many engine rebuilds you give it, no matter how many parts you replace, it's just a 40 year old Rambler going for 41.  A genuine POS that will give you 8 MPG if you're lucky.  You can still keep it running but do you really want to?

The first ten years it ran pretty good.  It passed cars on the highway, had a large trunk, a decent engine, fair gas mileage, and room for six. 

The second ten years it ran ok.  It kept up with traffic, had a trunk with a few spare tires, the engine leaked oil, crappy gas mileage, and the seats were worn. 

The third decade it started up after a little ether in the carb.  Even old people pass you on the highway, the trunk had a big hole in the quarter panel, it has a rebuilt engine made from machined parts from the old engine, you took out a loan for the gas, the seats have springs poking you in the ass. 

The fourth, and present decade you take out a loan to top it off with oil, fill the radiator, top off the power steering fluid, the tranny fluid, the brake fluid, fill the tires with air, and jump start it with your neighbor's Chinese car.  Call the tow truck and take out a loan to pay him to tow you everywhere you go.  The trunk rotted away along with the back seats and floorboards, you're half retarded from breathing exhaust fumes, and all six of you have to ride in the front seat.

It costs you $40,000 a day to keep this piece of crap going.  You can't get rid of the car because 40 years ago you signed a contract saying you'll lease this car for $200 a month at 1000% interest compounded daily til the end of time and you're afraid of messing up your credit rating.

It's not your fault.  You're business partner (Uncle Sam) made that deal.  He's just a silent partner but the ironclad contract he made you sign ensures the business gives him unlimited credit for his pet projects like 3 million bucks to study potholes in rural Poland, billions on H.A.A.R.P., vacations in Reo, and a war or two just to make a few billion for his buddies and kill some brown skinned people in the process.

All the while you're trying to make ends meet and it's a losing battle.  Sure, you have enough for yourself but you want more.  You're entitled to more.  On the surface it looks good.  You have a job, people working for you, benefits, a savings account, a beautiful wife, darling children, a wonderful home, and a piece of crap car that costs you 40,000 bucks a day.  It's ok because your Chinese neighbor said he'll loan you all the money you need to keep this car running, with interest, and all he asks is something for collateral...  Everything that you and your family will ever own until the end of time.

Not bad, since I won't be around when the end of time gets here.

Yup.  Americans sure know a good deal when they see one.

This Toxic Food is BANNED in Europe

This Toxic Food is BANNED in Europe – But They’re Treating us Like Boneheads
Posted By Dr. Mercola

Together we CAN get GMOs banned from the US. Europe was able to do it over a decade ago without any government assistance. All they did was educate the consumers, and that was enough pressure on the food industry to drop their ploys.

If we band together as an effective army we will be able to do this. Please understand that the VAST majority of people in the US do not want GM foods, so this is an EASY battle to win. All we have to do is a bit of organizational work.

So let me tell you how we are going to achieve the removal of GMOs in the US.

October is Non-GMO Month, and you’ve been receiving a lot of important information about genetically engineered foods this week.

Tomorrow, October 10th (10/10/10) is Non-GMO Day, so I’m pleased to bring back Jeffrey Smith, the real leader behind this movement to eliminate GM foods from the US market, for another interview.

This month, Jeffrey’s organization, Institute for Responsible Technology, is launching a plan to bring their message to the necessary numbers of people to create a tipping point that can effectively drive GM foods off the market. Nearly 400 retail stores selling natural products around the country are already actively promoting the information about choosing healthier non-GMO products.

I’m thrilled to be part of this movement, and I strongly urge you join us.

The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) has created a variety of tools that will make it easier for you to choose non-GM foods, and this is the way to eradicate GMO’s from your local store. If no one wants to buy them, stores can’t sell them, and will simply stop ordering them. Food manufacturers will have to adjust and quickly change their ingredients or risk losing their business.

It’s really that simple!

Remember, you as a consumer is still at the top of the food chain.

another pvc-cb modification

I love fall. That nip in the air, colorful leaves, and a perfect time for upgrading the cloudbuster.

I decided to include a programmable mp3 player instead of the frequency generator I installed last year. I found these orgonite devices work so much better using variable tones instead of a constant square wave frequency and programming an mp3 is as easy as turning on your TV. Besides, the internet is full of sites that have just what you need, as far as tones and tunes go. I chose eight Solfeggio based tunes that last approximately 10 minutes each. The mp3 will automatically repeat this selection as soon as it's finished and continue until it's turned off or runs out of charge. And that poses a little problem, especially if you want it to last more than a couple hours. The lithium battery won't hold a charge for very long and running an extension cord 50 yards is out of the question. The only way to do this is to make it self contained with a system that can constantly charge the mp3.

A quick inventory showed I had everything I needed to make this work, at least for now. All I needed was a large battery that could be recharged, a car lighter-USB adapter, some ear buds, speaker wire, and a solar panel. The solar panel will have to wait because I didn't feel like shelling out 30 bucks to Radio Shack.

The hardest part about this project was tapping into those tiny wires on the mp3 ear buds. Those wires are tiny and cutting off a section of the insulation required an exacto knife and a jewelers glass. Soldering a speaker wire to them without doing damage was a genuine pain in the ass but I managed to tap into the left and right negative wires that would eventually hook up to the orgone field generator at the base of the PVC pipe that houses the cone HHG. It's just old school tech. Hooking up the negative wires from a 2-speaker stereo to a third speaker will give you elements of both channels, and since this mp3 is stereo I felt it fitting to include both channels. Besides, the ear buds not only let me know if there's any sound but act as resistance. Less chance of damaging the mp3.

After that it was just putting the parts in place. I plugged a car phone charger with a USB port into a Delco jumpstart, plugged the mp3 into the USB slot, hooked up the modified ear buds, used an extension cable to hook the ear buds to the orgone field generator and hit the play button.

Moments before I did this I had the cb running with the frequency generator I made for it and, as I like to do, put my hands on it to feel the hum. When I did that with the mp3 attached, the feel was much more pronounced. It was softer, more pleasant, and had a distinctive rhythm to it, for lack of a better term. It's way more powerful and not nearly as industrial and one dimensional as a frequency generator putting out one frequency at a time.

I'm led to believe these things like and respond to music, at least as much as we do. After all, Mother Earth is a master musician and maybe she's a bit tired of the sounds of industry.

I wonder if she likes Beethoven?
