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.

"It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people."
This quote is from Pravda - I added the color to sheeple

"The current quagmire we face with Social Security came about when the New Deal politicians created a Ponzi scheme Bernard Madoff would be proud of. They created the illusion of an entitlement so people would give their hard-earned money to the government with the promise of a well-deserved payback in old age. But like any good Ponzi scheme the government schemers spent all the money they got and now all that is left is a pile of IOUs called treasury bonds only payable with future workers putting in money so the earlier investors can be paid off to keep the scheme going. Unlike people who never had health insurance, 401K accounts or pensions, many people had them all while working and now with Social Security have a government-subsidized retirement far better than they deserve
The only way we can save Social Security is a means test so only the deserving poor get Social Security. But a means test usually means wasting money on administrative costs. Fortunately, the descendents of the New Deal politicians have shown us the way out of the mess with the recent stimulus package. That package first made it legal to pay bonus money to people at AIG and then the politicians turned around and wanted to tax 100% of the bonus money.
The same solution can save Social Security. People file income tax returns and for little administrative cost income taxes can be used to recoup Social Security payments to people who don't truly deserve or need them. Currently some Social Security money is taxed but the rates are way too low. Wealthy people like retired AIG executives should be required to pay all of their Social Security money back with their income tax return. This 'shared sacrifice' surtax on Social Security payments would have to be progressive so truly needy people pay no taxes but those better off would pay proportionately more back. This Fair Deal approach is about the only way we can save Social Security for people who really need it."

There are a bunch of people out there who think President BO was born in Kenya instead of Hawaii or somehow is not a US citizen. They are trying to get him to show the world his birth certificate. After all you need to show the government your birth certificate to become a Social security recipient so why not president?

We think the BANANAs are sleeping with the top of the toilet tank but we were afraid to ask why.
And of course the BANANAs are going green with the new house

If you want another (and perhaps better) point of view on global warming see the link above to get a lecture (six ten minute YouTube entries) by Roy Spencer who works with data from NASA satellites that measure the temperatures on our sacred planet. He is living proof you cannot trust the major media on giving you the whole story of global warming. Spencer is a global warming denier who believes the planet has warmed up in the last 100 years. The question is why.
Our guess is he is so busy he does not have time to sequester carbon using a wood lathe.

Use the link above to learn nobody with that name is a registered sex offender in WI.
WASHBURN COUNTY – A Minong woman was convicted of sexual assault of a child Wednesday, May 13, at the Washburn County Courthouse.
Dawn M. Thomas, 29, pled no contest in March to second-degree sexual assault of a child and to child enticement with sexual contact, and was found guilty. According to the report, Thomas had forced a 14-year-old boy into intercourse and other sex acts multiple times on May 12, 2008, and offered him alcohol, while he was baby-sitting her child overnight. Later that week, his mother intercepted text messages from Thomas indicating the acts and telling him to keep them secret, the report said. She testified later in court that she had had suspicions upon his return, and that Thomas had said some inappropriate things in front of her son before that." source (as of today): http://www.wcregister.net/

Baby rhubard seems to have survived the killer frost.
Cannot tell if these horny apple trees froze or not.
In this hole yesterday TWW saw his precious tree all bent over to the side and a bunch of orange/brown junk in the hole. When he went over to save the tree the orange/brown junk raised its head and started bleating with fright. Today the hole in the ground was empty and the tree OK.

Taken from AP: Rutgers University political scientist Ross Baker says Obama uses such pointed language to create an us-against-them dynamic in which he aligns himself with average Americans and depicts his opponents as selfish powers working just for themselves. Obama's targets, Baker says, usually are unsympathetic and faceless corporations or hedge funds.
"If you use inflammatory, populist language," Baker said in an interview, "it's best to use it on organizations or interests that aren't terribly popular."
When does he get you or your group in his sites?

Last Saturday TWW got to visit the site of some of these tales. There was once a bridge atop a canyon with a rushing river where people dived falling at least 50 feet before plunging into the raging current. There were also tales of sheriff's visits complete with lights and sirens. But nature has taken its toll on the gorge and it is now flat. And the bridge shrunk as you can see below and the stream is a mere trickle now. And the Wild Turkey bottle is empty.
