TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

You don't need no love in
You don't need no bed pan
You don't need a horoscope or a microscope
The see the mess that you're in
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We've been polluted so long
Now here's a way for you to get clean
By chanting the names of the lord and you'll be free
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
Chanting the names of the lord and you'll be free
The lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
The Obama Meditation
In the past many people have wanted to learn how to meditate to ease the stresses of modern life but have had to pay for expensive lessons. But now millions of people are learning to meditate and many are even doing it during political speeches. It’s easy if you merely follow the directions below.
1. Find a quite place or wear room-quieting earphones
2. Wear loose comfortable clothes.
3. Sit quietly and try to only pay attention to your breathing.
4. Now start saying "OBAMA" out loud.
5. Then say "OBAMa". Then "OBAma", "Obama". "obama". Say the mantra over and over while lowering the volume until you are only chanting "obama" silently. Chant this mantra over and over again. If a stray thought like "McCain" or "Hillary" comes into your thoughts, no need to be alarmed. Ignore it and shift your attention back to "obama, obama, obama, obama".
6. After a few minutes of doing this waves of relaxation will begin to pass throughout your body as cares and body fat melt away.
7. Continue this for about 15 to 20 minutes.
8. This practice is best done in the morning when you first wake up and in the afternoon after work.
9. Doing this meditation will heal all of the damage you have done to your body during the last 7 years of frustration and turmoil. Health benefits will begin to appear within days of beginning this practice.
Peace, love and Obama 08.

There is a bright side to the current housing crisis you seldom hear about. A conservative president in the 1980s had the chance to reform Social Security but fortunately did try to do so. When Reagan signed a Social Security reform in the 80s he missed the chance to privatize social security. Instead of the stock market option in the failed Bush approach, Reagan could have changed Social Security so the money held in trust had gone into home loans. Just think if he had done so. Today the losses in home loans would be losses in the investment portfolio of the Social Security program. The media would be bonkers about the losses. Fortunately, the extra money from the raised social taxes at the time was put into Treasury bonds. The government spent the money instead of losing any of it from current crisis in the housing market.

The Bowlbama hopes to be become a leader in sustainable living and giving hope to people. The Bowlbama is both art and function. It comes unfinished since TWW believes it is not possible to decide how customers will want their Bowlbamas to look. (Finishing kits will be available at additional cost to customers and profit for TWW).
Based on a recent focus group session held at TWW Enterprises headquarters we can safely say people see whatever they are hoping for in a Bowlbama. Well-educated seekers of serenity can take two Bowlbamas and hold them over their ears and cares will fade away. Working class people like construction workers and loggers can attach straps to Bowlbamas and have a hardhat with a low carbon footprint (OSHA approval is expected soon). Psychotherapists and salespeople can merely place a Bowlbama on their desk and their clients will start seeing all of their unconscious thoughts in the Bowlbamas. A nursing home worker in the focus group said the Bowlbamas would make good earth-friendly bedpans. A store owner in the focus group thought you could turn a Bowlbama upside down, put a hole in the top and use it for a Christmas trees stand. Whatever you hope for you can find in a Bowlbama.
You may be able to soon see Bowlbamas in action. We have learned someone is going to remake the Peter Sellers movie Being There. When you see the new movie be sure to look at what is sitting on the table.
Unlike other TWW Enterprise products which have guarantees the nature of the Bowlbamas means a warranty is not possible and all sales are final. The only way you will find out if you got what you think you paid for is to buy one and try it.

Recently, Wolf Blitzer was interviewing George Bush and Bush told him "Well, you are the pundit and I am only a simple president".
Einstein was putting down the reporter and so was Bush. The real question is how people cannot understand what a simple person like Bush is actually saying. So, did you understand what Bush really said?
Now how did Bush lie? The story about Einstein is made up.

" The Maunder Minimum is the name given to the period roughly from 1645 to 1715, when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time. It is named after the solar astronomer Edward W. Maunder (1851–1928) who discovered the dearth of sunspots during that period by studying records from those years. During one 30-year period within the Maunder Minimum, for example, astronomers observed only about 50 sunspots, as opposed to a more typical 40,000–50,000 spots..... The Maunder Minimum coincided with the middle — and coldest part — of the so-called Little Ice Age, during which Europe and North America, and perhaps much of the rest of the world, were subjected to bitterly cold winters. Whether there is a causal connection between low sunspot activity and cold winters is the subject of ongoing debate (e.g. see Global Warming). " The source of this information is:
With the end of the oil age in sight people will need a way to stay warm during the coming Maunder Minimum so let's hope global warming comes to the rescue.

TWW is joining the ranks of insignificant people who make news by endorsing a candidate. The endorsement is conditional. If Rush Limbaugh ever starts saying anything nice about Mc Cain this endorsement is immediately withdrawn as a way of making news a second time.

The TV Converter Box Program solves the problem of poor retirees in the country not being able to get free TV after February 2009 when all TV goes digital. (Poor people in the city have cable so don’t need this program and younger people in the country have satellite TV)). The program lets people apply for free coupons that will cover much of cost of the magic converter box to keep their old analog TVs getting free programs.
The program saves money by ingeniously putting a three month life on the coupons. The program is underfunded (also saving money) so consumers are advised to sign up early before the supply of coupons runs out. Next, the second ingenious part of this program. The stores do not yet sell the converter boxes so if you get your coupon no store can sell you a converter box before your coupon expires. There is a household limit so you cannot get more coupons even if the stores start carrying the converter boxes later. So if lots of people sign up early for the coupons the coupons will expire before they can buy their converter boxes.
Finally, the program has someone to blame. The big corporations knew about the coupon program but failed to build the converter boxes fast enough to meet the demand so they could raise prices and add to their obscene profits. If your coupon is no good it their fault and not the politicians .
This new program is a response to the public clamoring for change so watch for it to become part of the debates in the coming election. The real genius of this new model is it may also become part of the way the federal government solves the social security problem handed down by the New Deal Democrats to the Democrat politicians in the 70s and 80s who made things worse by putting a COLA into Social Security. The program was also made worse when Reagan and the Democrats raised the payroll taxes for Social Security and then spent all the extra money (the federal government bought treasury bonds taxpayers have to eventually pay back). The politicians are still working out who to blame for Social Security recipients getting benefits cut but we think politicians will blame the rich people for not paying their fair share of Social Security taxes in the past without mentioning the fact the government would have spent all that extra money anyway.
