Bottle bill

No, this isn't about that old guy who used to live around here and sucked on a bottle, make that a flask, of kick-a-poo joy juice all day.

When I was a kid around here many thousands of days ago, about the only way to make a few cents for spending money was to go digging around in the local trash heaps of which there were quite a few, for discarded bottles! As I recall there were only a few that were redeemable at the Seaside Market. All of the large ones, about a quart and a half that said Coca Cola, Clicquot Club, Spur, an a couple others were worth 5 cents each! In todays money that would be like getting about three or four bucks back for a bottle. The small coke bottles were worth 2 cents each!

As tight as money was around here back then, you DID NOT see too many of these little gems lying around on the side of the road! And if you did, you just considered yourself one lucky SOB for that day!

So here is the chance for the State of RI to finally get it right. Someone has again introduced a bottle bill in the legislature. Does it have a chance of passing? Who knows. Who actually knows why all the previous ones were shot down in flames. It is probably because one or more of our, "elected officials" has friends or family in the plastic bottle fabrication business and they don't want any competition from already made containers.

But just think of the benefits of a bottle bill. All the poor, indigent, laborers could go out and get rich and live the American dream! The sides of the roads would be forever free of this type of trash! And after two or three years, the landfill at Johnston would be reduced to a tiny mole hill of inconspicuious height after they had picked it clean of those returnable bottles! No more worries about that,"plastic bottle that will be in the landfill for CENTURIES"!

So we give kudos too the person who introd'ed the bill, and can only hope that our fearless leaders will see fit to join with them in bringing our deficient state from the backwaters of time and place, into the reality of today! Besides being good for the visual aspect of it all, after Obama gets in, we are all going to need a little extra income to get those two elusive ends to meet! TIFN



There is a word you are going to be hearing a lot about in the next five months! I was, oh what the hell, AM going to go off on a rant about how some people can be so oblivious to his coming policies if he gets elected, just because he is a black man! I guess they think that if he gets elected we, whitey, will be absolved of all our past transgressions against the black people. Is not going to happen folks. If he gets elected the first thing he is going to do is shove his hands so deep in your pockets you won't get him out for four years or more! All you old folks depending on SS? Stand by for cuts there. Bush's tax cuts? They will be gone in '10. Foreign Aid? He says he IS GOING to DOUBLE it!! Bet most of it goes to NK in the form of "food"!

Just where the hell does he think he is going to 'get' all this free money from? Think the twelve owners of the FED will print him up some more unbacked $$$? Bet your ass seeing as they are the ones who put him where he is!
This guy is so far out in left field, he is outside the foul pole! He is not even playing on the same field as the rest of us! Take a real good deep, in depth look at where he came from as a politician, and how he came to be where he is now. He is the end product of the Illinois good old boy political network. Greased every palm and dealt with every sleazy person in the network to arrive at his present station. Look at some of the people he is using for adviser's! Most of the are from the Slick Willie era, and a few were involved with mighty shady too black dealings,(murder-Vince Foster-remember him?) back then. This guy is a wolf, dressed in sheep's clothing, made solely out of charisma, rhetoric, and "baffle 'em with bull shit" talk, and he is going to eat us alive while turning this country into a second rate shithole!

I know that McCain is an old man by some people's standards, and if he dies in office, hopefully his VP will be someone who can carry on in his general vein. If BO gets in and has Hillary for a VP, and he was to bite the bullet, then we'd have her, and after her, Nancy Pelosi! What a god awful frightening thought to contemplate!

So get your money out of the banks if you have any in there, close out your IRA's and take the tax beating now. It will be less than when BO is on board. Start hoarding whatever you think you will need in the next four years, 'cause it is only going to get more expensive. Don't even think of doing anything that would involve capital gains as the rate for that little endeavor will also double from 7 to 14%. He has already guaranteed that! This guy is one of those who will not learn from past mistakes and history. He is going to take us right back to all the failed policies of the 60's and 70's! Super high taxation and more and bigger government, and look where we are now! School systems suck, colleges and universities are infested with all the Left leaning, no, BENT OVER to the ground, socialist professors who infect our kids with their outdated and outmoded brand of politics. "And the beat goes on" so Cher would say.

I guess that's enough for this time. Okay all, time to 'debunk' all the myths I have put forward up there. TIFN
