I just got fired and I never felt better

It's the day after Christmas and I lost my job.  I'll admit, I spent a few minutes in a state of denial, but when the fog in my head cleared, I was good to go.  My head was reeling with thoughts but the most predominate was, I'M FREE.

Secondary and tertiary thoughts included the absolute cowardice of my manager, who I considered my friend, who had one of his assistants give me the bad news instead of delivering it himself.  And another assistant, who I worked with for a few years who I thought would at least give me a heads up on the situation, acted as a silent witness when the surprise axe fell.

If the situation was reversed, I would have stepped in and put in my two cents to defend my workmate.  I would have argued on behalf of the person chosen to be fired as an unsolicited litigator and fought for my workmate's job.  Ya see, it's always been my philosophy that you never mess with another man's job.  A bad habit I picked up as a union worker and union officer in past jobs.  But in retail, you're on your own because there is no union and the company has you by the short hairs and everyone is too afraid to lose their job.  So, my pseudo friends stood silent and idle as I got fired from a job of 14 years, by a guy who wasn't there a year.

And what was my crime, do you ask?  I gave a flashlight/stun-gun to a girl who worked there because she had to walk two miles home, after 11pm, through a bad neighborhood.  Nothing more than a Christmas present.  Well, Merry Christmas.  You're fired.

But I'm good.  For the first time in many years, I got not only the Christmas spirit but acknowledgement from the universe that all this was nothing but good.  Ya see, a few days ago I stood in the energy field of the Mofo field generator I built a few months ago, and made an intent for a better job that payed more and would give me more satisfaction.  I could never do that unless I was free from my present job, which I would never quit because of my work ethic.  It took an outside agency to force me out of that position to fulfill my desire and intent.

At this moment I'm in a total state of respect and awe of the power this field generator has.  It totally redirected my whole life from a simple intent.  And no one knows better than me...Ya call the tune, ya pay the piper.  I knew what I was getting into and I accept the fates.

My head is in a better place, now.  I can feel my IQ rising from the lack of stupidity I was accustomed to and the world is my oyster.  Anyone else in this position might be fostering revenge or ill will toward the participants who executed my economic demise but I refuse to foster such negative emotions.  Rather, I choose to wish that all involved get what they deserve and that everyone else get a better job.

Not to worry about me.  I have a backup plan to keep me in the monetary security to which I've been accustomed.  And quite honestly, this job was messin with my psyche and I'm glad to be done with it.  I'm free to work on other projects like making lick-her, field generators, orgonite and de-calcifying my third eye.

Send your condolences to my former employer and your good wishes to me.  I'm just getting warmed up.

got skin?

It was my local pharmacist who said if I can manage to come up with a real poison ivy cure, we could both make a fortune. I had the antidote for poison ivy. I just needed all the trappings that go along with merchandising such a thing, like packaging, labeling, manufacture, distribution, funding, lab work, business plans, FDA approval, and all the red tape that goes hand in hand with modern American business.

I may be a tinker and experimenter but an administrator, I am not. After a while, my poison ivy cure became little more than free relief for family and friends, usually in a state of half scabbing, oozing pustules, with an itch severe enough to bring them to the brink of madness.

My work with frequencies and field generators took up most of my free time and my cure sat on the back burner to be revitalized when the time was right. Little did I know the right time was pretty damn soon.

When Tammy casually mentioned she had what looked like the beginning of psoriasis, it got me thinking of possible cures, and my poison ivy cure immediately came to mind. As I listened to her tell me about the rash on her neck, my mind went off on skin cure tangents. The cure is simple. Jewel weed extract and water in a 3:1 ratio to allow it to produce an aerate spray from a pump bottle. If I substitute colloidal silver for the water it would include an anti-bacterial element to promote healing and reduce the chance for infection. A touch of glycerin would act like a patch to keep the solution on the treated area. Out of the three components, glycerin is the only one with FDA approval, allowing me to list it as the active ingredient with the truly active ingredients listed as inactive to satisfy FDA requirements. I mixed up a small batch and Tammy is now conducting personal research on whatever skin irritations she has with substantial documentation through her course of treatment.

Yeah, I know… The government has their games and FDA is no exception. FDA will NOT approve any natural cure for anything, ever. Unless it can be created in a lab by big pharma with billions in research and payoff funds, no cure will hit the pharmacy shelf. Doubly so for a natural cure. The addition of glycerin will allow me to produce my cure because many years ago, FDA granted approval for it, and because of this irreversible approval rating, I can do what every other poison ivy relief vendor out there can do… Add an FDA approved substance as the active ingredient, even if it's totally useless.

Talk about totally useless. Have you ever perused the drug stores for what is sold for poison ivy relief? Almost all of them focus on the symptoms of poison ivy instead of the cause. Active ingredients listed are usually crap like alcohol, which burns like hell and does nothing but dry up a few emerging pustules, and camphor, which reduces the itching so you don't scratch. Each manufacturer has their own proprietary blend of FDA approved crap that does little more than give the illusion of reducing the symptoms while letting the problem run its course.

I get my jewel weed extract in bulk from a company who does their own reactivity tests, freeing me from the burden and cost of lab work to see if one out of a million people might react negatively from a substance. I produce my own colloidal silver in small batches using only pure water using reverse osmosis with 3PPM Himalayan salt with a consistent 38PPM nano particle colloidal silver. The colloidal silver alone can cure Ebola, according to government studies. Topical application of this type of colloidal silver acts as an antibacterial and antibiotic to reduce inflammation and infection and promote rapid healing.

All three ingredients have a proven, historical track record for healing a plethora of ailments. Jewel weed will stop the progression of poison ivy rash and reverse it faster and more complete than anything big pharma or nature can provide. Colloidal silver is backed by independent and government studies that conclude nothing nasty can survive in a colloidal silver solution. Glycerin is totally non-reactive and is available everywhere and has FDA approval. According to the FDA, only an FDA approved drug can be listed as an active ingredient, and since all three ingredients are listed as non-reactive, I can bypass the reactivity lab tests. It looks like I got FDA approval through the back door and I'll be producing and selling this stuff without worry about government intervention. So, up yours FDA.

If you care to recreate this formula, I'll give you all the information you need to make your own. But if you just want a bottle to try out before you invest a ton of cash, let me know and I'll send you something. This is just part of my research and development budget, which might set me back a few hundred dollars, compared to the 300 million the FDA said I would have to spend before they denied approval. (and we wonder why medical costs are so high)

This 300 million dollar figure FDA considers a reasonable price to pay to research a simple formula is stunningly mind blowing. On top of that, their arrogance in telling me straight out they will NEVER approve it no matter how much I spend is designed to discourage anyone from trying. $300,000,000 is a lot of money. That kind of money can buy a distribution center full of cutting edge lab equipment tended by an army of lab coated technicians with enough left over cash to buy an island in the Caribbean. I wonder if this 300 mil was a subtle suggestion as to the amount FDA would accept to change their minds? I'll bet dollars to donuts if I suggested a meeting between our respective lawyers to work something out, and if I actually had 300 million to spare, we might have the first natural cure approval by the FDA since 1974. Of course, FDA would insist on approving a natural cure ONLY if it was able to be synthesized in a lab, which no longer makes it a natural cure.

That seems to be the unmentioned FDA mission statement.

Any drug can get FDA approval as long as it can be synthesized in a laboratory and comes with enough money to influence our decision.

More money means faster approval and my pockets aint that deep. 

I hope to get this stuff on the market before the springtime poison ivy season.

On a lighter note and deeper tangent...

I'm comin.  I'm comin, though my head is hangin low.

I hear the gentle voices callin

old, black, Joe.

frontier phone company sucks

My internet went down two weeks ago and it took that long for the phone company to send someone out to fix it.  Intolerable, for sure, but this is the world we created and we have to live with it.

For the record, my internet/phone company is Frontier.  Let me say that again.  FRONTIER, the worst phone company in North America.

A few decades ago, if your electric or phone or internet went out you could expect the service to be corrected within hours, a day at the most.  Today, in our Jetson future society, we can expect a service call anywhere between 8 am and the moment of our death, with a service charge added to the monthly bill... with an appointment two weeks into the future.

When the phone guy finally did show up, I noticed he awkwardly used his cell phone to get the codes for the new modem.  Now, this is a phone company technician that came to restore the DSL internet service the phone company provides.  It's a land line.  That's all this company deals with.  Land lines and DSL service that goes through the land lines.  He's using a competitive service to service his company's customers.  I mean, this is like Pepsi on a Coke truck. 

I asked him why he's not using a laptop, or at least a tablet for this kind of work, and he said the company took all their laptops away at the beginning of the month to cut costs and want all the phone techs to use phones instead.  He also said the last job he was on took 5 hours and he could have done it in half that time if he had his lap top instead of this crappy phone that takes forever to type into because of the tiny virtual keypad that his technician fingers can't cleanly hit.

I couldn't fire into this guy about the two week wait, after a pitiful story like that.  If he was armed with a laptop and attitude I'd blast that sonofabitch for depriving me of internet service for two weeks just because he had a vacation coming, or some such shit.  But this guy was just like me... Working for a cheap company, run by bean counters who never worked in the field, dictating how things should be.

And being without internet for two weeks had me hot enough to take a tire iron to the phone guy... just as soon as he fixed my internet problem.  But I couldn't.  He was just like the rest of us that are still working.  Doing three times the work for the same pay because our respective companies use our work ethics against us, for no other reason but increasing their bottom line.  We're slaves to our respective systems and slaves don't kill slaves.  They got us by our collective, ideological balls.

That's why I made arrangements to switch the internet to cable and save $65 a month. 

Let's hope I don't have to switch to satellite for the same reason.

trump is a racist

I received this from a friend of mine.  Something worth sharing.

The controlled press functions as the voice of the Establishment. The Establishment wants you to believe certain things, accept certain things as truth. They are against Donald Trump. Solidly against him. So they set the reporters and the talking heads to say bad things about him. They accuse him of various things. Often, he's accused of being a racist.
These Establishment mouthpieces assume a position on high moral ground and proceed to attack Donald Trump for being a racist. The evidence they present is pretty vague. It would not stand up in court. But, they control the narrative. They're the media. He's just one person. They can shout him down and trot out other paid clowns to say the same thing.
It's very hard, impossible really, to prove a negative. They can accuse him of being a racist or anything else and there's no defense for that. He can't prove he's not a racist. He can't prove he doesn't communicate with little green men from the planet Mopar. They haven't accused him of that so far.
The plan is to put him on the defensive and make him spend his time trying to convince people that he's not a racist. That way the Establishment controls the narrative and proving a negative is impossible. He's too smart for them, and that's a plus for our side. He may have been born at night, but it wasn't last night. So we have to ask the question:
Do these drifty delinquents from the Establishment have a valid claim to the moral high ground? Let's start by defining "racist". The nice folks over at Oxford, where dictionary is their middle name, give us this definition:
  • prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior: 
That seems pretty clear. Let's look around and see if we can find some of those dirty "racists". Notice when the Establishment uses that word, it sounds like a dirty word. The ultimate put-down.
Didn't have to look far. It's in the bible. Yep! That book those Steeple People use to condemn racists. They're the ones who'll tell you that the jews are "God's Chosen People". If that ain't racism, I'll kiss your butt on the courthouse steps and give you six weeks to draw a crowd.
On the world stage, look at how the Israelis treat the Palestinians. As less than people, really. Horrid folks, those Palestinians, is their attitude. They've built walls to keep them out of Israel. Sort of like the wall President Trump wants to build on the southern border, which is very similar to the one Mexico built on their southern border. But I digress. Israel burns and shoots Palestinians and steals their land. And if that's not a racist attitude, the offer on the courthouse steps is still open.
Oy vey! Let's not just talk about the jews. How about we talk about them black folks? Some of the descendants of cotton pickers behave like racists. BLM, for example. They spray paint "kill whitey" on whatever flat surface is available. They have a plan and they know what they want. They refuse to accept the outcome of the election and have promised to demonstrate - read, disrupt - the inauguration. Do they think they're better than white folks? That's how they behave, anyway.
It's not a long jump from racial predjudice to religious predjudice. And Holy Cow! That's what much of history is about. The history of the Catholic Church's action against heretics of their own race and genocide against other races is way too long to go into here. It is enough to say that Christianity in all its forms of manifestation did not achieve its powerful position on the strength of its arguments. Their power came by way of the sword. The Islamists do horrible things to people. The Christian Church may have been their teacher.
Ah, yes. The Islamists. They've been at war with each other for centuries. Centuries! The West inserted itself into that region with the first world war, and then again with the second world war. The oil companies had to have their cheap oil, and Israel - we're back to them again - had to have a homeland. So the jews inserted themselves into a region that was already full of religious strife and now the Middle East has to deal with a tribe who doesn't get along with any race. They don't have to. They're God's Chosen People. But it isn't that simple. Seems that there are at least two flavors of jews and, you guessed it, the majority discriminates against the minority. You don't hear much about that from the controlled media. Maybe it's because the media is either owned by or controlled by jews. Ya' think?
Racists. Start looking, and you'll find them everywhere. I remember reading years ago that the Japanese used to look down on Koreans and say that Koreans are proof that monkeys mated with humans.
If you stood a Saudi next to someone from Yemen, could you tell them apart? Maybe if they were dressed differently. But really, all them brown folks from the Middle East look alike, at least to me. Ah! But they know who they are! And so the Saudis are making war on tiny little Yemen. Is it based on race or religion? Or did the Saudis just feel boisterous one day and decide to bomb Yemen? They make war on Yemen and along comes Iran as an ally of Yemen. Saudi Arabia and Iran don't get along. If you were around in the Reagan years, you'll remember their war. Race war? Maybe. Iranians are not Arabs. They're Persians.
Have I made my point? You can denounce it from the highest mountain if you are moved to do so, but the fact is that racism is pretty much a human trait. So the next time some paid shill for the controlled media wags his finger at Donald Trump and calls him a racist, you can just look at that clod and nod in agreement. "Yep. He's a racist. Just like everybody else."
Except that in his case, he probably isn't!! Take a look at those closest to him and judge for yourself. And then you may wonder to yourself what other lies have they told about him?

who's in charge here?

The other day, I was sitting on a bench outside the mall when a woman approached me.  She addressed me by name and said we last saw each other at this very same place two years ago and we talked about parallel worlds.  She didn't have to jog my memory.  I remember the encounter very well.  We discussed how litter was increasing exponentially in the last ten years, proportional to the influx of South American immigrants and how quantum jumps may be part of the equation.  As we talked, she whipped out a notebook and jotted things down.  It just so happened she was researching a story for the local newspaper she worked for and was intrigued by the quantum theory angle and wanted to do a story on me.

Sure enough, when the paper came out she gave me full credit for my other worlds theory of litter accumulation.

Anyway, two years later, she tells me she wants to continue the discussion about parallel universes.  I smiled and said sure and asked what she was up to lately, as she inched her way closer to my bench.  You know, small talk before the heavy stuff. 

That's when she went off on how she and a few million people signed a petition to kick Trump out of office and they'll do it legally and swiftly and he'll be gone by January 1st and Hillary will become the president.  She went off on how Trump was a racist and bigot and hated women and grabbed women in the crotch and how he is a criminal who doesn't deserve to to hold any office, let alone the leader of the free world.

I just looked at her as she figuratively stomped to death our most recent president-elect with her high heels as she continued her non-critical thinking rant.
In my calmest demeaner, I said, "I don't know what you're talking about.  I thought Hillary was the criminal."

I wasn't expecting a rational discussion but what I got was a rather loud psychotic reaction that involved pacing, stomping, and lots of yelling about how horrible I was to vote for such an immoral bastard such as Trump.
As she turned and walked away I asked if she still wanted to talk about quantum theory.  She turned and said she will never talk to me about anything because of the horrible things I just said, and walked away in a huff.

She's not the only Trump hater I met without an inkling of rational thought as to why Clinton is good and Trump is bad.  I tend to think they don't know why, either.  They all seem to yell and hold signs and block traffic in cities during rush hour like a generation of inarticulate, verbal zombies.  Sounds like group mind control.  Now, how could anyone pull off a generational mind control program without detection?

I looked into American education 1980, as a good place to start, based on the age spread of the protesters.  It was May 1980 when the Department of Education took over the nation's school system with a new approach to educating our youth from the ground up, to become productive and obedient citizens.  Emphasis on obedience because the federal government remembers the chaos of the Vietnam era when revolution filled the air, Washington lost control, and America lost its first war.

The Jesuits had a saying... "Give me the child for the first seven years and I'll give you the man."

The question I have is, did a whole generation of obedient citizens suddenly decide to become disobedient and riot in the streets or did some authority order it?

I don't recall Obama or Hillary asking their minions to stop throwing hissy fits.

Who's controlling who?

millennial patriotism rush

this is so depressing...

In Hulda Clark's book, "The Cure For All Diseases", she goes into detail how bacteria can be killed with a 9V zapper set at 20Hz.  She also touched on the subject of clinical depression.

All persons I have seen with clinical depression had small
roundworms in the brain. Is it any wonder the brain can't make
enough neurotransmitters or gets them out of balance? The usual
worms are hookworms (Ancylostoma), Ascaris of cats and dogs,
Trichinellas and Strongyloides.
Although it is commonly believed that hookworms penetrate
the skin when walking barefoot on earth, this appears to be a
negligible route. The important routes are eating animal filth and
inhaling filthy dust. Our pets pick these worms up daily. We get
them and give them in constant exchange with our pets and family
members. Diapering babies is an especially hazardous, though
necessary, business. Letting little children clean up after their
own bowel movements is even more hazardous. Hands should be
sanitized with grain alcohol after dealing with bowel contents,
whether your own, your child's, or an animal's. If you clean up a
messy diaper and then wash your hands well with soap, then go to
make the chopped salad for dinner, you're sure to give each
family member a dose of whatever the baby has. It was hiding
under the fingernails. Animals clean up the easy way: they simply
lick the youngster's bottom. But, we humans are not strong enough
to take on a dose of bottom with each meal. We must sanitize
our hands.

Ok, just the thought of worms crawling through my brain puts me in an immediate state of denial with a touch of revoltion followed by an urgent need to rid my second favorite organ of parasites.  But, it got me thinking about a connection between clinical depression and household pets and the very distinct possibility that every member of a household with a family dog is completely unaware they suffer from clinical depression.

It's altogether possible someone could be clinically depressed for decades and not know it.  Depression is self-protecting.  One of the side effects of clinical depression is not recognizing you have it by setting up an involuntary state of denial for this specific disease.  For example, you might blame your lack of enthusiasm and energy on the weather or a tolerance to your morning coffee.  You might even think about depression but will quickly perish the thought and focus on symptoms, which has as much effect as blowing your nose to cure a cold.

When Hulda Clark said all persons she's seen with clinical depression had small roundworms in the brain, I wondered if ONLY the clinically depressed had roundworms or if the non-clinically depressed had them as well.  Do the worms cause depression or is the brain of a depressed person a better environment for worms to thrive?  How many peoples brains did Clark check out who weren't clinically depressed?  Is worms in the brain physical proof you're depressed?  How do you find out if you have roundworms in your brain?  Biopsy?  MRI?  Stool sample? 

At any rate, I'm assuming there's a possibility my brain might be harbouring a few unwanted parasites and decided to get pro-active on this, for my own peace of mind.

I picked up a Spooky2 rife machine a few months ago and I've been experimenting with it ever since.  Without going into too much detail, Spooky2 is a programmable frequency generator designed to target specific organisms with the exact frequency to destroy the unwanted organism.  Picture a wine glass shattering from a singer's voice.

Last night I loaded Spooky2 with about a dozen frequency programs designed to eliminate hookworms, ancylostoma, trichinellas, strongyloides, and any other pathogen associated with cranial parasites and fired it up using remote killing.

It's too soon to tell if this had any effect on me but last night I had the best night's sleep I've had in weeks.  I woke up early and fast with an appetite for eggs and a significant absence of morning stiffness.  In short, I feel pretty good.

I can't help thinking anyone who has a dog or a cat in the house has most likely managed to be infected by these parasites and there's no remedy, outside of specific frequency bombardment, to eliminate them.  Unless you spend your life in a bubble, you got em and you've had them for many years.  Long term clinical depression could be the root cause of the vast majority of societies physical and mental ailments.  Obesity, back pain, heart disease, insomnia, organ failure, stress, neurosis, psychosis, road rage, cancer, and tons of other ailments that manifest in middle age could quite possibly be the result of playing fetch with the family dog when you were a child.  Talk about prozac nation.  Is it any wonder the vast majority of Americans are on some kind of maintenance drug protocol?

It's common knowledge that dogs and, to a lesser degree, cats are beneficial to humans as confidants and stress relievers who lower blood pressure and reduce heart disease and make old people feel happy and loved.  I totally agree.  There's no better symbiotic relationship than a boy and his dog.  From the first starving wolf to approach pre-historic man's camp fire, to be fed a bit of meat as a peace offering, a bond was formed that evolved into the mutual domestication we have today.

An Australian study claims older Australians who own a pet are more likely to be depressed and in poorer physical health than people who don't own pets, according to a major new Australian study.
Flying in the face of claims from the pet food industry, and others, the study shows pet ownership confers no health benefits to older people.

The study shows older pet owners are more obese, had a higher risk of heart disease, were more depressed, and smoked more than their non-pet owner counterparts.

Is it possible our domestic animals are so sweet and cuddly by design, not only as a survival mechanism for themselves but part of a bigger plan to infect humanity with thought altering clinical depression, with denial of it's existence as a built in safeguard as our domestic dogs and cats act as gate keepers with the illusion of easing the depression they're responsible for?

To answer that question you'll have to find a culture that avoids contact with dogs and compare the data.  Anyone know of a country that fits that description? 

At any rate, I'll let you know of my findings in a few weeks.

gifting the grid

In earlier posts I pointed out how this five gallon thing I built kicks out some very extreme power and I mentioned more than once that I didn't have a clue what I was going to do with it.  Like a unit without a purpose.

Last night, as I sat on the back porch with my rum and spiced cider, it occurred to me that Halloween might be a good day to fire up the Mofo and patch it directly into the grid.

I set the frequency generator at a square wave 432Hz signal, ramped it up with a 12v amp, and added a tensor ring for a steroid effect.

Patching it to the grid was the easiest part.  I just took an extension cord, clipped off the female end, separated the leads, taped the ends, and wrapped the two wires around the top column, where all this energy is flowing, and plugged it into an outlet.

Alternating current, which is what comes out of your electrical outlets, reverses polarity 60 times a second.  This allows electricity to flow both ways.  If you had a method of generating more electricity than you use, such as windmills or solar panels, the surplus electricity would flow in the opposite direction and the electric company would be sending you a check.  There's more to it than that but that's the general principal.

Setting up the Mofo in this fashion allows me to imbue the electricity flowing through this residence, and by extension, the neighborhood, and theoretically, the whole power grid with the most awesome energy this unit kicks out.

Since this Mofo is basically a five gallon succor punch with 600' of mobius coil wire with an amped up frequency of 432Hz, it seems fitting to program it with an intention.  A big unit requires a big intention so I programmed it to wake up the rest of humanity that's still asleep and collectively usher in a new age of spiritual enhancement, free energy, and universal love.

Like water, AC electricity touches all shores and anointing the power grid in this way could have a profoundly positive influence on every residence, business, prison complex, government agency, and life form its power lines reach.

Let's see if there's any profound changes in the next two weeks.  At the risk of sounding overly optimistic, my guess it'll be nothing short of absolute awesome!

life is but a dream

it's all in the water

I ran a batch of scotch a few weeks ago and set it on light toasted French oak for about two weeks at 130 proof.  The result was less than expected.  It tasted like regular whiskey to me, not the unique iodine flavored ambrosia scotch drinkers are fond of.  I did everything the right way.  Peat malted barley simmered in water for an hour followed by soaking in 2 gallons of cool water for another hour.  Set to ferment for a couple weeks and ran through a pot still and thumper to a consistent 130 proof.  Adding well water to bring the proof to 86 produced a good whiskey but it wasn't scotch.

Three regions in Scotland produce whiskey in much the same way.  The pot stills used are pretty much interchangeable and the basic ferment procedure is identical, as well as casking, ageing, and everything else that goes into producing a fine scotch whiskey.   But all three regions produce a scotch that has a flavor profile unique to the area in which it was produced.  The only difference is the water.

The fact is, there IS a difference in water.  Not so much in the distilling, but in the water added after distilling to adjust the proof.  It's the lime water in Kentucky that makes the best bourbon and the best scotch is made from water flowing over red granite and peat bogs.  That's a good place to start.

I made a solution of well water and pickling lime and let it settle for a week and added 20cc of this lime water to three quarts of water.  I then made a tea of peat moss and water and added 20cc of this solution to the three quarts.  Adding this cloned water to proof the scotch made all the difference in the world.  The hint of smoke and tones of unripened fruit with that unique scotch signature was all there with the added benefit of a smooth, creamy, lingering finish.  This is some good shit here, if I do say so myself.

Much more than crafting a decent scotch, I proved to myself that water is as important to the equation as mash, temperature, or any other distilling parameter. 
I guess there was a reason I never got around to proofing that last batch of bourbon.  I was just waiting for some cloned Kentucky lime water.

and the winner is...

Anyone see the second debate?  If you happened to see it, you wouldn't be questioning what the second debate was.  It would be drilled into your grey matter like the shot heard round the world.
For those who haven't seen it, I'll give a brief summation. 

Trump kicked Hillary's ass.  He eviscerated her.  He gutted her like a pig.  He cut her off at the knees, disembowelled her, and dragged her dead corpse around the stage like Achilles dragged Hector around Troy.  To the Trump supporters, it was sweeter than Yoo Hoo.  To Hillary's people, it was like getting ass fucked by a gorilla.  To the mainstream media, Trump got a modest win, just enough to keep him in the race.

Modest win my ass!  Trump outed Bill Clinton as a serial rapist and Hillary as his enabler.  He invited five of Bill's rape victims to the debate with a front row seat.  Solid proof he's not a controlled opposition NWO puppet to give Hillary the win.  The look on Bill's face was priceless.  This was the look of fear, defeat, and humiliation.

So, what brought on this vicious attack from Trump?  It was a direct result of Hillary and the moderators taking turns attacking Trump based on a recorded, private conversation between Billy Bush and Trump eleven years ago.  Trump was talking, one on one, about how bimbos are so attracted to rich, successful, and powerful men that you can do almost anything without complaint, including kissing them and grabbing their pussies.
To most normal people this is just locker room talk between guys.  To the rich and famous, this is an occupational hazard.  Very few men are equipped to fight off the hoards of gold digging whores the rich and famous put up with on a daily basis.  A guy working at Home Depot wants to get laid just as much as a rock star but whores don't care about lumber.  But as soon as he wins the lottery, the whores come out of the woodwork, faces painted, skirts on, ready to jump on his dick right in front of his wife.  Ask Tiger Woods about his gold digging ex-wife who got a quarter of a billion dollars in settlements because Tiger succumbed to the temptation of another gold digging whore.  We're talking about whores, people.  Their everywhere and they can ruin your life in seven minutes or less.

When Trump was talking to Billy about grabbing women he wasn't talking about women in general but a sub-class of women who find this kind of behaviour not only acceptable but encouraged, as long as it's from a rich and famous male.
Trump is the epitome of an alpha male.  Rich, successful, famous, and self confident.  He spent his whole life navigating through mine fields of gold digging whores.  His conversation with Billy Bush was nothing more than a brief, matter of fact explanation of the epidemic of gold digging whores who are attracted to guys like Trump, using sex as a weapon to trap their prey.
To Trump, gold digging whores are just as much an occupational hazard as sugary sweets are to beauty queens and super models.  Ya think the most beautiful women on the planet are attracted to Henry Kissinger?  Bill Clinton had sex with thousands of bimbos with only a handful who took offence.  Even Arnold got chopped in half by his gold digging maid.  How can anyone judge what it's like to be tempted at that level?  The fact that Trump managed to avoid the constant onslaught of high level gold digging whores and avoid going to the cleaners, like so many other men who lost everything, tells me he's a better man than anyone I ever knew.  Now, this is something the MSN and high level pundits will never touch on.  By all accounts, Trump is the winner.

Ya hear that Anderson Cooper?

the undecided

Ok, so the dems and reps launched their debates to sway the undecided to their ranks. 

The undecided... Oh God.  If there was ever a more wishy washy group of true deplorables, it's the undecided.  This is that group of assholes who are determined to vote but can't decide who to vote for.  After a year of in-your-face campaigning from Trump and Hillary, this group of low information cretins still haven't made up their minds as to who would make the better president, despite their determination to vote for somebody, whoever that may be.

After the vice presidential debate I saw a video of a focus group discussion made up entirely of undecided voters.  Five minutes into this discussion I wanted to beat to death every undecided retard in this focus group with the heal of my shoe.  And I'll bet I could beat to death each and every low information voter, one at a time, as they docilly wait their turn and watch in horror as the person to their left gets their foreheads beaten to a pulp with a wingtip heel.  These are the people deciding our fate.  Half wits, accepting their fates as a crazed lunatic beats them to death with a shoe for the unforgivable crime of spending too much time choosing a side.

God help us all.

a secret reviled

I give full credit to Jayna Reynolds for the following paragraphs.

Democrats are essentially divided into two groups based on intelligence (I.Q.) The low I.Q. group is very gullible and easy to manipulate. They believe lies without question. They are government workers or unemployed or have jobs due to preferential hiring because of race. These groups are pandered to by Democrat politicians. They are given promises that are never kept and they don't care because they're not smart enough to remember the promises. The other and smaller group is the high I.Q. These people are well aware to the promises that are actually lies, but they don't care. They are usually in position to gain financially by how the government moves money. The word is 'skim'. They skim or take some of the tax dollars that are distributed to various government programs. In essence it's legalized stealing. It's legal because they make deals with the Democratic leadership/law makers that provide loopholes in the law specifically for them. The Clintons are the quintessential corrupt politicians that use laws to steal. There are very few true middle class Democrats. In other words there are very few Democrats who actually build anything or produce anything. The major reason why this corrupt system works is because the Democrats control the mainstream media. Broadcast TV, motion pictures, radio, etc. This media is all propaganda and filled with lies and omissions and distortion of fact. Trump is appealing to the true workers and middle class. And he is the first American politician to use the internet to bypass the mainstream media and talk directly to the people. His message has reached you and others outside of America thanks to the internet. You are witnessing a dynamic change in American politics due to a major change in communication technology that has finally grown large enough to make a meaningful difference.

The Republicans are 'mock opposition' to the Democrats. Their function is commiserate with the workers and producers of America who are getting screwed by the Democrat's fiscal policies. They act as a pressure release valve that makes the workers think they have a voice. They don't. We've had essentially a one party system for many decades. Only the media creates the illusion of a two party system. This is the similarity in the parties you perceive and exactly why so many so-called Republicans are so-called 'never Trump' believers. Our politicians have been 'appointed' and not truly elected. We've been able to see clearly behind the curtain of this election fraud with Bernie's ripoff. This whole charade is being unraveled by Trump. The Democrats and those who control the Democrats from behind the scenes aren't going to let their cash cow go easily. This is why so many fear for Trump's life. History is chronicled with periodic assassinations of men who would be president and who dared to do the right thing for the people.

 I couldn't have said it better myself, although I tried.

1966 was a pivotal point in history that's worth looking at for some root answers.

weekend at hillary's

Whether I like it or not, I talk to lots of people throughout the day.  It's usually the typical bullshit, meaningless banter about weather and the economy but sooner or later I ask if they are a Hillary supporter.  More often then not I get dirty looks and tirades about Trump and how he's going to win by a landslide.  But every now and then I get to talk to some real, honest to goodness, low information voters who can't wait til November is over so they can get back to life without Hillary or Trump as the main topic and won't make up their minds until they step into the voting booth.  That's when I realized we should have a third political party.  The Stupid party, for all the American voters too stupid to vote for one of the two presidential candidates that will win.  We already have that in Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, but the stupid people are too stupid to realize it.  Maybe it's their single digit numbers that bother the stupid people and make them think if they vote for any of these losers their vote won't count.  Well, maybe they're not as stupid as they think they are.

Let's look at Gary Johnson.  He's running on the Libertarian ticket, has single digits in the poles, wants TPP, a carbon tax, gun control, thinks Hillary is a fine lady, wants open borders, and gets pissed off when you call undocumented workers as illegals.  Gary Johnson is no libertarian but he's a fuckin idiot.

Jill Stein, Green party.  What's she for?  She likes gun control and vaccinations, thinks Obamacare is a step toward single payer, wants to bring home the troops and disarm N. Korea, thinks the PATRIOT Act and N.D.A.A should be repealed.  Most importantly, she's a woman.  Vagina number 2 for the oval office with single digit numbers in the poles.  

Everyone on the planet knows Gary and Jill don't stand a chance.  They were put there to draw votes from the Bernie crowd and the undecided, uninformed, low information, low intelligence, television programmed sheep to give the illusion of choice while the Hillary people stuff the ballet boxes with votes from dead people and illegal (undocumented) immigrants so their electronic ballet manipulation won't look so obvious.

Look at it this way... When making wine, the fruit flies come from nowhere to feed and contaminate the fruit juice as it ferments.  Setting a small jar of vinegar and a few other ingredients near the ferment barrel will attract and capture the fruit flies and keep them away from your ferment.  Gary and Jill are the vinegar solution in this presidential race and stand the same chance as a pair of fruit fly traps in a winery producing choice wine.

Which leaves Hillary and Trump as the heavyweights in this contest. This looks more like A Weekend at Bernie’s than a race to the White House.

it's a good thing copper is down

I finally managed to finish the new column and thumper.  I could've built this thing in a day if I didn't have to cobble it together piecemeal, but a lack of available time and inclination forced me to stretch this project out and complete it in a month.
Since I chose to build this free-form, unrestrained from conventional planning and blueprints, I had to take my time and conceptualize each step before making any cuts or permanent soldering.  The result is a multi-component unit that fits together perfectly and works better than I thought it could.  The downside is my planning.

The column is 2" by 38" long, packed with copper mesh for additional surface area.  3/4" copper pipe goes straight down to a 1/2" reducer to the thumper with an outlet to the liebig condenser.  This set-up produced a consistent 175 proof from start to finish.  The problem is running the main boiler as close to 174 F as I can and still keep it hot enough to run the thumper, which requires hot vapor to bring that vessel up to a minimum of 174 F to produce the vapor to pass through the liebig to condense to liquid.  Cranking up the heat on the boiler will only produce more water vapor, reducing the proof.

Sad to say, the design is overkill.  By that I mean a thumper on a full reflux system is like back up lights on a jet aircraft.  Ya see, a system running full reflux is already producing clean, high proof alcohol.  A thumper on a system like that can't make things better but can limit it's potential.

Conclusion... Thumpers are an excellent way to maintain a consistent proof and flavor throughout a run on a pot still but on a reflux still?   Fugetaboudit.  It's like driving a Formula 1 to work.   

Then again, if I didn't build and run this thing, I would never know for sure.  It's not a total loss by any means.   Thanks to SharkBite, the quick disconnect method I found, I can still use these components for other uses.  The use of steel washers to strengthen the base of my copper/stainless solder points was purely insightful and I cleared my garage of a lot of loose copper.

Looks like another trip to the hardware store.

what's with this keshe pain pen?

I heard about the Keshe pain pen a few months ago.  Ebay has them for upwards of 50 bucks but the construction seemed simple enough.  Rather than shell out 50 bucks for a total unknown, I decided to build one and take it from there. 

The object you see to the left is my first pain pen attempt.  I used what I had on hand.  A fairly long piece of twisted 14 gauge copper wire for making tensor rings. 

After twisting the cable around a steel rod and fitting the center cable, I nano coated it with a MAPP gas torch and slid it in a test tube.  The design calls for a substance called GANS, and since I didn't have any, I used ORMUS as a substitute.  GANS and ORMUS are completely different in every way but they look similar and it's what I had and I figured using ORMUS was better than nothing.  I figure it's like making a hot dog, substituting salsa for ketchup.  Not the same but good enough.

I was impressed enough with the energy output that I built two more to repeat the experiment.  The second one was identical to the first with only single wire instead of cable, and just as the first, twisted clock-wise.  The third was identical to the second with a counter clock-wise twist as the only difference.

As far as energy output, the first and second units were almost identical as the strongest, and the third one, with the counter clock-wise twist, produced next to nothing.  I gave the second one away but the prototype has been sitting on my computer desk, undisturbed, since I made it.

That was then and I didn't give the pain pen a second thought, even though I developed a severe pinched nerve that sent a numbing feeling of low current down my right arm.  A combination of work ethic and lack of available time kept me from a chiropractic adjustment, and I just put up with it, thinking I'll get around to seeing my chiropractor when I get the time, if it doesn't fix itself before that.  Yeah, typical procrastination.  The same thing I give everyone else hell for.  

Well, as I was sitting at my desk this morning with my first cup of joe, I looked at the pain pen prototype and figured, what the hell.  I held the business end about 2" from my right elbow and moved it in little circles around the area.  Within 30 seconds I could feel a distinctive magnetic field.  Not a lot but a just there feeling.  I tried the same thing on my shoulder and wrist for just a few seconds while reading an article.  It was the area around the thumb that I felt the tingle the strongest from the pen.  Not thinking much about it, I drank my coffee and went to get another when I realized that numbing feeling I had in my arm was gone.  That was four hours ago and I feel quite good, in a general sort of way.  Even that lower back pain is gone and I actually feel taller, as opposed to the troglodyte posture I assume before I become semi-vertical.  All this from using this pain pen for something like two minutes.

I believed the pain was a result of a pinched nerve followed by inflammation.  Reduce the inflammation, reduce the pain.  That's understandable, but what about this pen?  Does this pain pen reduce inflammation?  Does this pen fix the problem or only the symptom?  Pain has one function, to tell you something is wrong.  Am I cured or are my pain receptors turned off?  I don't know.  I'm just asking. 

I discounted the placebo effect since I never expected anything to happen.  But I then realized I never gave this pain pen any kind of real test because I didn't have any pain problems to try it on when I built it.  I felt a tingle, followed by low level amazement and moved on to other projects. 

Against all common sense, I have to admit there's something very dramatic about this Keshe pain pen.  If I could get such results from a device, sloppily thrown together from spare parts and substitute fluids, think what I could produce if I built one the proper way that Keshe suggests.

Looks like I'll be travelling this tangent for a while.

election of the living dead

There's a new president in town and his name is Trump.  That should be enough.  Post title, publish, and move on.

But Hillary keeps hanging on like the nightmare that won't go away.

In the past six months I met one person who said they were voting for Hillary and that was a woman who thought Marco Rubio was a viable candidate, until he dropped out.  And that's Hillary.  The candidate with a vagina and experience suitable to take us past the outer level of hell to socialistic political purity as she levels the playing field to an all inclusive, diversity nirvana... or somesuch bullshit.  Ya gotta be a braindead zombie to be a Hillary supporter, but there's still 10% of the population shambling the American avenues who still want that crazy bitch in the oval office.

Did I say crazy bitch?  I really meant to say crazy, fuckin, criminal bitch, cause that's exactly what this political whore of iniquity is, and that goes double for her cuckold, Bill, the serial rapist and ex-prez of these eunited states.

"But Bill Clinton was the president of the US and Hillary was his wife, the first lady.  You should have more respect, especially since Hillary had to endure Bill's constant and continual philandering."  Yeah, right... As Bill put it, "Hillary got more pussy than I ever had."

But I digress.

I'm not here to spread shit about the ex-first family, although it would be totally easy.  I'm here to tell it like I see it.

If I was a paranoid, self-deluded, sociopath with delusions of godhood who just landed in the White House for a four to eight year term, the first thing I'd do is go through the NSA and CIA files and get the goods on every politician in Washington to use as leverage.  I'd create a network of loyal followers and place them in the highest levels of government.  I'd set up a hit squad to deal with troublemakers who can't be bought or coerced.  I'd make trade deals and pass laws that would benefit those who bankrolled my campaign while enriching me and restructuring the economy as part of the long range plan.  I'd also sell off federal lands to the highest bidder, just because I can.  As a lawyer married to a lawyer I'd set up a charitable foundation to launder the billions of dollars from donations and various schemes on a world-wide basis, to avoid taxes and disclosure.

Not many people are aware that most of the U.S. parks and monuments don't belong to us anymore.  The United Nations (of which most member countries are now our enemies) controls most of our U.S. National Parks and Monuments including Yellowstone, the Everglades, the Washington Monument, the Statue of Liberty, Thomas Jefferson’s home at Monticello, the Brooklyn Bridge, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon – to name just a few.  We still pay for maintenance and upkeep but they don't belong to us.
How did this happen?  This was done while Bill and Hillary were in the White House and you can bet the farm the Clinton Foundation got a nice profit from it.

George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton have been business partners since Bill was the Arkansas AG.  If you ever did cocaine in the 80's there's a high probability it came from the airport in Mena, Arkansas under the protection of Bill Clinton, who had total control of that state, and the CIA under George Bush.  Tons of cocaine that came through Mena was distributed throughout N. America with CIA federal protection.  This kind of CIA involvement made Bill and Hillary Clinton invulnerable to any kind of arrest - for life.  I suspect the Mena operation alone provided CIA funding for decades, turned the Bush family into a dynasty, and gave the Clintons a clear path to the White House.

With George Bush as a partner and buddy, getting the dirt on anyone and everyone would be fairly simple.  As president, you have access to damn near anything you want.  George already had extensive files on key figures from their involvement in child prostitution rings and other nefarious activities, complete with photos, phone records, video tape, audio recordings, manufactured evidence, etc.  It wouldn't surprise me if daddy Bush had a film of the JFK assassination from a different angle, never before seen by the public.
Nixon had an enemy’s list.  The Clintons had full dossiers on all the players, listed as Friends of Bill and Enemies of Bill.

Armed with that kind of arsenal, Hillary is now running for president as the chosen one.  The deal was made eight years ago when she was told to step aside and let Obama have first turn at bat.  Why do you think she didn't run four years ago?  Simple.  It wasn't her turn.  Now it is.

It doesn't look good for Hillary, though, in 2016.  This theatre called the presidential race, was supposed to feature Jeb Bush as the Republican contender with Hillary as the winner on election day, and Jeb as the presidential hopeful eight years later.

What happened?  Trump happened, that's what.  He systematically eliminated all sixteen GOP hopefuls, in record time, and took the nomination unopposed.  The powers that be didn't know what hit them.  The GOP, Trumps own party, publicly stated they'd rather have Hillary, a democrat, as president instead of Trump.  The GOP boldly stated Trump would never win the nomination because only the party masters choose who to nominate and your vote doesn't count.  Obama came out and said Trump will NEVER be president.  Against all odds, Trump is on his way to the White House and even the Bush/Clinton combo can't slow down this runaway train.

In any other election year, I'd say it was just another reality theater show for the masses, with the illusion your vote counts and you actually have a say in choosing the president.  The outcome was pre-determined years ago and every actor in this play auditioned for the part and was handed a script.  Nothing is left to chance at this level of government.  So, when a giant fly, like Trump, lands in the ointment, the people involved in this production melt down.

He's a billionaire so he can't be bought.  He funds his own campaign.  He's not tied to any special interest groups.  He doesn't drink, smoke, or do drugs.  He has nothing in his past to be used for blackmail.  He's not a career politician so they can't threaten his career.  He's clean in every way, well protected, and fights back three times harder when attacked.  He talks the talk and walks the walk.  His fans love him, his enemies hate him, but they all play by HIS rules when he shows up.  Trump is a true patriot alpha male, armed with superior business acumen, the constitution, and street smarts as his weapons and he's gonna win YUUGE.

How do you fight a guy like that?  Even though Hillary is the chosen one, they still need popular opinion to justify her win.  Presidential elections may be sham theater to give the illusion of democracy, but if 80% of the population votes for the other guy and she still gets the win, the whole world will see the cards up the puppet master's sleeve.

A card was already past the cuff when Obama gave Hillary a lift to the next campaign stop on Air force One, moments before the FBI said she didn't intend to let classified documents get hacked while on her personal server.  She was just too stupid to know any better, according to the FBI, and suggested no indictment.  Yep, Obama's approval ratings dropped a few points when it was discovered the day before that Bill had a secret, private meeting with the Attorney General who was supposed to indict Hillary.  The fix was in from the top down and now everyone knows it.   

It's not easy to get public opinion on your side when the whole world knows you're a liar and a cheat and thousands of your party supporters leave the convention hall as soon as you accept your nomination.  If public opinion isn't on your side, pretend it is.  Get the media to crank out bad stuff about Trump.  Take every non-PC remark he says and put a spin on it.  Make Obama slam Trump whenever he's in front of a camera.  Hire more Cointelpro flunkies to troll the internet with comments about Trump's hair and his rabid racist, xenophobe, islamophobe, homophobic, misogynistic, bully behavior and how he's not fit for the job as president.  Make it look like Trump supporters are low-information rednecks and something's wrong with you if you don't hate him.  Exaggerate every mistake Trump makes and interpret everything in the worst possible light.  Skew the polling results in Hillary's favor.  Create the illusion you're more popular and steal the election through electronic voting hacking and multiple votes from dead people and illegals.
Typical 21st century American politics.

But this election is different than all others before it.  The mainstream media is no longer considered the neutral messenger of truth, informing the masses with unbiased research from Pulitzer prize winning journalists.  It's become abundantly clear the MSM has morphed into a propaganda tool for the people who own this country.   The Jack London journalists have been replaced by Winston Smith clerks, regurgitating controlled AP pabulum as a social engineering tool for Big Brother.  In case you haven't guessed, the people running this country REALLY want Hillary as the next prez and they won't take no for an answer.

The big question is, why is Hillary running and why do the powers that be want her to win?  The Clintons have billions in assets, a half dozen multi-million dollar estates they hardly get to see, all the friends money can buy, a free pass to do whatever they want.  These two should retire to a lavish lifestyle from the endless, generational fruits of their labor, instead of fighting for the most stressful job on the planet.  Hell, just the stress and pressure of campaigning is taking it's toll on both of them.  Bill looks like death warmed over and Hillary appears to be brain damaged.  On the other hand, Trump seems stronger and livelier than the day before.  He has the energy level of a man half his age with three times the endurance.  With Bill and Hill it's drugs, make-up, and a tightly controlled media providing the illusion of good health.  At this time, it's even money if she doesn't croak before the election.  So, what's so damned important about Hillary winning the White House?

Could be all those favors promised to the special interests who supported her campaign through the Clinton Foundation.  Maybe Obama needs Hillary to be prez to put him on the Supreme Court or heading up the U.N.  Quite possibly, winning the presidency is literally a matter of life or death to save her sorry ass from multiple indictments and prison.  Maybe the New World Order needs a puppet as world leader to continue their agenda of world control.

Or, this presidential race could very well be the fork in the road where one path leads to a never ending 1984 Orwellian nightmare of bleak prosperity, endless wars, endless austerity, and the end of human rights as we know it.  The other path is a course correction, taking us back to the main road leading to innovation, prosperity, self worth, independence, and spiritual fulfilment.

The popular attitude toward presidential elections is it's a rigged game.  The winners are chosen years before the event and your vote doesn't count.  It's bread and circuses for the masses to give the illusion they have a collective say in who the new boss is... same as the old boss.  The lessor of the two evils, the ultimate battle of the red and blue.  A four year event just about as interesting as TV bowling with a winner no one wants.  No wonder most Americans stay home on election day and masturbate.  At least they get a little something for their effort.
But I'm pretty sure this presidential race isn't going as originally intended by our overlords. 

In this corner you have the establishment contender, Hillary Hellhound Clinton, a brain damaged, old lady with a penchant for lying, a political track record of enriching herself while destabilizing the middle east, and some serious mental and physical issues.  Her only claim to fame is sleeping with the president, which entitles her to the highest office in the land.  She hates America and American culture and will do whatever her special interest owners want, providing she makes profit from it and they let her live.  Future plans for America include signing off on TPP, effectively eliminating 80,000 jobs when Boeing establishes plants anywhere but here, and disarming the American citizens.

And in this corner is the champion of the masses and establishment gate crasher, Donald The Real Deal Trump, a genius level businessman with a track record of success that spans generations who wrote the book on business strategy, high finance negotiation, and winning.  He has billions, is totally independent, avoids political correct bullshit, and goes for the jugular in every fight.  Future plans involve immigration suspension from terrorist infected countries until proper vetting is established, building the wall, lowering taxes, downsizing government, rebuilding manufacturing infrastructure to attract business, and reducing political corruption.

Let's get it on!

motor fuel

I've been meaning to build this column for a while, but other plans kept bumping it to the back burner.  I knew what I wanted to do but kept getting bogged down on which details to keep while maintaining basic design principles for whichever end product I'll have in mind at that moment.

Pot stills and a reflux stills function differently and require specific design considerations to achieve the best possible end result.  I want the best of both worlds, and this is the sticking point.

A taller column, with it's reflex action, will produce cleaner alcohol with a higher proof and less flavor.  A short column will produce more flavor with a lower proof.  It's a simple trade off... 190 proof alcohol with no flavor or 120 proof with a carry-over of whatever you used to produce the ferment.  For me, the best of both worlds would be an end product of 150 proof with lots of flavor or 190 proof using the same column with a few simple adjustments.
I think I'm almost there.

The column is 2" x 32" copper with a 3/4" reducer.  I chose an open top for the remote thermometer and ease of cleaning.  Packing the column with copper mesh and adding a secondary condenser to the top opening will produce excellent reflux by condensing the alcohol vapor and returning it to the boiler to be re-distilled.  The reflux action cleans and purifies the alcohol vapor with each cycle while the copper removes the sulphides, producing a flavorless, high proof alcohol.

That's all well and good if you're making motor fuel but what if you want some flavor with that?  If distilleries used this method, everything would taste like vodka.  Even moonshine has a corn flavor in the background.  This is where a slight modification comes in.

The lyne arm is the tube that goes from the column to the condenser.  The angle of the lyne arm is just as important as the column as to what comes out the pipe.  Horizontal will produce more proof and less flavor.  Vertical will produce more flavor and less proof.  45 degrees is preferred for the best of both worlds, reflux and pot stills alike.  But due to the length of the column I feel I need to compensate by running the lyne arm straight down to the thumper for a second distill, followed by a liebig condenser.  This will require a copper pipe assembly to join the thumper, if needed.

So, the whole unit past the boiler will consist of the 36" column, copper pipe and reducer assembly, a short stack thumper, and ending with a vertical liebig condenser.  The whole thing could be assembled and re-assembled with quick disconnects, making cleaning and storing as simple as possible.

This design is perfect for future modifications like extended lyne arms, multiple condensers, column gin basket, detachable parrot, carbon filter, etc. 

The best whisky stills on the market use this design, sans thumper, that produce superior spirits... with a price tag that starts in the thousands.  I'm not saying my design is better or even equal to some of the high tech units out there.  Just sayin it's way cheaper and more adaptable.

Then again, this is all theory.

dick lamm from 2014

Can you believe this guy was a Democratic Governor of Colorado.  He was never very impressive until now.  His comments are right on the mark.
We know Dick Lamm as Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, 'Mexifornia,' explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America.
The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, 'If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.''
'Here is how they do it,' Lamm said:

'First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country...  History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: 'The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.' Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.'
Lamm went on:
'Second, to destroy America, invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.
'Third, we could make the United States a 'Hispanic Quebec ' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentric and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.' Lamm said, 'I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.'
'Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.'
'My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology...' I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority.'
'My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precept. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. 'E. Pluribus Unum' -- From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will 'Balkanize' America as surely as Kosovo.' 
'Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-cultism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.'
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, 'Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book 'Mexifornia.' His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book.'
There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America Take note of California and other states. To date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book '1984. 'In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: 'War is peace,' 'Freedom is slavery,' and 'Ignorance is strength.' 

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.
