Castro on Obama Superficiality

I think it interesting that various world leaders who have been around awhile, can see through all the media hype and sheer smoke of Obama accomplishing nothing but photo opps and yet so many US citizens still can't see it. Here are excerpts by Castro;

"Fidel Castro says Obama misinterpreted his brother's remarks - Fidel Castro says President Barack Obama "misinterpreted" his brother Raul's remarks regarding the United States and bristled at the suggestion that Cuba should free political prisoners or cut taxes on dollars people send to the island.

Raul Castro touched off a whirlwind of speculation last week that the U.S. and Cuba could be headed toward a thaw after nearly a half-century of chilly relations. The speculation began when the Cuban president said leaders would be willing to sit down with their U.S. counterparts and discuss "everything, everything, everything," including human rights, freedom of the press and expression, and political prisoners...

The ex-president has previously expressed admiration for Obama, but this time he blasted the new U.S. president for showing signs of "superficiality," and called on him to wait no longer before lifting the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba."

Now when someone says everything and repeats it 3 times, that's a pretty inclusive statement so I take issue with Fidel not being able to control his brother but the superficial comment resonated with me from watching so much of Obamas PR that we are forcefed in his incessant quest to make a name for himself by just blowing hot air without tangible results.

And Sarkozy calls Obamas Iran policies ‘Arrogant,’ and ‘Utterly Immature’.

Some great bumper stickers;

Protesters are Terrorists???

I am really pissed off that the government (and the media) are trying to spin the intent of the Tea Parties by implying that participants are nutjobs and terrorists. This is not how the USA works. Some of the protests were denied or disrupted for lack of 'permits'...what ever happened to free speech?

News items where the White House says they were 'unaware' of the Tea Parties or that they are 'amused' by these people...amused?

How patronizing to treat the citizens of the USA as if their opinions and concerns are of NO IMPORT to those we elected to government office TO SERVE US.

Then they go after Rick Santelli for stirring all this up, saying he had not read up on the subject and inviting him to the White House (to try to shut him up) to which he responds;

My main concern is those who try to use the Tea Party rallies for their own little distracts from the PURPOSE and INTENT as well as providing ammunition where critics will pick out a few idiotic signs and paint everyone with the nutcase brush. See the 10 most offensive photos at Huffington Post.

These paint Tea Parties as Racist


These paint Tea Parties as Confused

STFU Garofalo

I like Janeane Garofalo, but unless she was joking, she really showed her ass in this recent statement Liberal actress says tea parties were racist.

Maybe she was on drugs because it was the most idiotic thing I've read in months.

"Liberal actress and political activist Janeane Garofalo, in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent prime-time television appearance.

"Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all. It's about hating a black man in the White House," she said on MSNBC's "The Countdown" with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening. "This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."

It's all about taxes and how the government has not only helped to create the current financial crisis, but now is trying to bailout their mistakes at the expense of the people. It matters NOT who is in the White House or the color of their skin.

If anyone is dysfunctional and with misfiring synapses, it's this little girl using words apparently too big or complicated for her to comprehend.

My Solutions

These are subject to modification, change or deletion at my personal whim.

It seems to me there are very clear solutions to a number of issues the USA and other countries are dealing with;

Problem #1: The Drug War in Mexico and the USA
My Solution: Legalize drugs and the wars stop since you would then be able to buy them anywhere. Drug use is a personal thing which the government has no business meddling with. Follow the basic law of Huna...'Hurt No One' which I modified long ago to 'Hurt no one with Intent'. As long as you hurt no one and damage no one else's property, then you can do as you wish. If you choose to destroy your body and mind, it is your choice and the world will be a better place as the abusers die off. Prisons will be cleared out for all drug cases and keep in mind it costs approximately $40,000 per year to keep a person in jail. The money saved from prison costs in addition to the taxes paid on legal drug sales will bring in huge amounts of money as well as quench all drug dealing competition since anything can be bought legally and taxed.

Problem #2: The current 'Pirate' Problem
My Solution: All ships have radios. As one guy suggested on a radio talk show, send in one or two US aircraft carriers with F16 fighter planes. When a ship is under attack, a call is made to the carrier, an F16 is deployed to assess the situation. KeelyNetAs with the Universal Policeman robot Gort from 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', the attacking ships will simply be blown out of the water. No capture, no sympathy, just wipe them out as marauding attackers. In time, the pirates will be so decimated or too scared of fatal retribution to try anything, the problem will be resolved.

Problem #3: Bailouts by government
My Solution: LET ALL FAILED/FAILING BUSINESSES GO BANKRUPT, no matter the size. The beauty of capitalism is it is self-correcting, sometimes painful but it will correct. Failed companies will be bought out and restructured or others will take their place. The government does not have the right or the business to bailout anyone using our money.

Problem #4: The US in other countries
My Solution: Let them stand or fall on their own without our interference. Close the overseas bases, bring all our troops home and use the troops to reinforce our borders and help out in national disasters (weather induced) until we get a working immigration policy.

Problem #5: The continuing Immigration problem
My Solution: Tag all foreigners legally entering the USA as visitors with GPS or RFID implants or special bracelets/collars. Not only can we track their movements but we can find them when their time is up to insure they leave per the entry/exit permits. For illegal immigrants, punish the employers and require all employers to use E-Verify as protection for their business. When people are here illegally and can't get a job, they have no choice but to return to their own country until they can re-enter legally. Other countries do NOT TOLERATE illegals and import them instantly when found out, so why should the US.

Problem #6: What about Illegal immigrants who have lived many years in the US?
My Solution: If they have been here illegally over a year and have investments in the form of homes, US registered vehicles, long term employment, etc. give them one year to apply for citizenship, legal social security numbers and another year to gain them. If they choose NOT to follow our laws, then they must leave no matter their investment gained illegally. Those illegals without vested assets are to be deported asap. And for all immigrants, the USA is an English speaking nation, all government documents and correspondence are to be in English and never offered in other languages. Immigrants must be required to learn English and understand they are now Americans, loyal to their new country.

Problem #7: Nation Building and Interference in other countries
My Solution: It is not the purpose or function of the US government to build or rebuild any nation. Nor is it our business to invade any other country unless they directly attack our shores.

Problem #8: Adhere to the Constitution
My Solution: More like Ron Pauls' solution, return to the Constitution. All government employees and servants have sworn to follow the constitution and when they do not, they should be held liable and fired from their jobs. Stop the Terrorist propaganda, restore our lost or diminished rights STOLEN by the Homeland Security paranoia. Allow easy and gestapo-less travel for US citizens within and without our country. Note that more people are killed in car accidents, from cancer and other illnesses than were EVER killed by the terrorist paranoia. If such attacks happen on our soil and clear culprits identified, then we deal with it on a case by case basis. Not chastising all citizens and inducing an endless state of paranoia around every corner. Return the USA to pre-911 freedoms and terminate the new big business of Homeland Security with its associated evils and restrictions for personal rights and liberties.

Problem #9: Return to Personal Responsibility
My Solution: Due to idiotic liability laws, the country has turned into a nation of whiners and blamers. No one is accountable for their actions or failures. Instead they blame everyone else and try to sue to compensate for their failures. People think what can I get out of this when something happens to them, instead of how they can fix it for themselves. In most cases, we create our own hell and miseries. It is part of the life process to learn and grow from our failures, but not if we are encouraged and allowed to blame others and hold them responsible. That also goes for this weird sense of entitlement where people think they are OWED something by the government or by others. You are entitled to NOTHING. See the Bill of NO RIGHTS for further clarification.

Problem #10: Accountability
My Solution: Leaders, both political and in business should be held strictly responsible for their actions (as should we all) if those actions violate laws. Why should they get away with it just because they are high profile? The simple fact that politicians and government servants swear to uphold and follow the constitution, yet when in office, violate that oath, makes them criminals and they should be punished for intentionally violating a sworn oath.

these for starters...

Nicotine as a cure for various illnesses

Years ago, when I was a teenager working as a carhop, I burned my thumb and it hurt like hell. The wife of the boss didn't have any medicine handy but said she would use something her grandmother used on them.

She took a piece of regular paper, wadded it up and burned it in a coffee dish. When it was completely burned, she blew the ashes away and there remained an oily brown residue. She rubbed this on my thumb and the pain stopped a few minutes later and it healed up with no problems.

The lady said it is the paper in cigarettes which cause cancer and that is why people who smoke cigars don't get cancer, because the paper is made from tobacco leaves which also contain nicotine as in the tobacco being smoked. Now of course, that was probably some kind of creosote in the paper she burned but it worked and I experienced it myself.

So I was browsing for goodies and found this REALLY OLD article about the origins of tobacco smoking but it is written in very old I am going to snip out the useful parts and translate to modern english. Noli me tangere as used in the document is Latin and means 'don't touch me';

"Master John Nicot, Counselor to the King, being Ambassador for the King in Portugal, in the years of our lord 1559, 60 and 61, went one day to see the person of the King of Portugal, and a gentleman being the keeper of the said prisons presented him this herb, as a strange plant brought from Florida;...(more at the link)" - Source

Sick of Obamas endless Media Whoring

Are there so many blind people who can't see what a friggin media whore Obama is? He never misses a chance to get himself in the news or photos taken of him. He takes credit for uncompleted ideas that have NOT proven out, yet he acts as if its a done deal and everyone should bow down to him for his brilliance and command of the national scene.

It's revolting. At least the University in Colorado had the guts to state why they weren't giving him an honorary degree...because he hadn't yet earned it, nothing don't get honors until YOU HAVE PROVEN YOURSELF and have the life experience and ACCOMPLISHMENTS to show you made a difference.

I guess he figured if he spoke there, he would get an honorary degree to add to his other AIRHEAD accomplishments so hats off to the university for 'declining' to grant him some other vacuous thing to boast about that means NOTHING.

KeelyNetAnd yet, based on opinion polls, commentators, comedians, media pundits, editorials and emails I read across the net, it looks like a wide range of people are FINALLY WAKING THE FUCK UP to how shallow and self-serving this jerk is.

If he actually DOES something that sticks and COMPLETES...maybe I'll change my views of him (as if that means anything)...but I saw it from day one and never bought into his Hollywood presentation of himself or his deeds....he is, as we say in Texas, ALL HAT AND NO CATTLE....yippee ki-yay MF!!!

State Soverignty vs Admiralty Law

Gov. Rick Perry today joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

HCR 50 affirms that Texas claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment over all powers not otherwise granted to the federal government. It also designates that all compulsory federal legislation that requires states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties, or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed. - Source

Welcome to Hellboxer

I created this blog to serve as a catchall for all kinds of information. A hellbox is a container to collect used, damaged, spare or worn out items. When I worked as a technician we had several hellboxes which bailed us out of many emergencies. Some were circuits, other electronic parts, component, assemblies, odd screws/fasteners, you name it.

Hellboxes freak out those who are anal retentive and have to see everything always perfectly organized and in its place...SCREW'll go nuts trying to keep everything in your life in perfect order. I know people like that who miss so much in life worrying over all the small crap that sucks up your time.

I wanted to name the site Hellbox but it was taken but seeing I am a huge practitioner of hellboxing, I figured I must be a............Hellboxer....thus the name of the blog.

Feel free to comment or write me if you must...nos vemos (seeya!)
