Friday Worst Ex-President Ever (so far) Open Comments

James Earl Carter

He specifically asked the Presidential ballots in 1976 to read “Jimmy Carter”.

Those who voted for him (or planned to) should have known just from that alone how bad of a mistake they would be making. It is difficult to express the depth of the mistake American voters made that November day so long ago.

What is clear now is that virtually nobody is of the opinion that electing him was the best thing they could have done. He has so effectively marginalized and beclowned himself that virtually nobody takes him seriously. Not even the poofy-haired troll dictator in the DPRK.

What Peanuts is essentially saying is that we have the obligation to feed the North Koreans so that he can keep them in slavery. We should do whatever we can do to ensure that Mr. Trolldoll will just keep talking and not shut us out. Why this is important is left unsaid.

To be sure, this is not Peanuts’ only failing. While in office, he managed to relinquish control of the Panama Canal, enable lots on Marxist rebels in Central America, set in motion events that led to the crazies in Iran taking control and causing havoc 35 years later.

He also presided over an economic disaster on the domestic front. High unemployment and high interest rates that led to the creation of the “misery index”, plus the Department of Energy.

Department of Energy – created to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. When it was created, imported oil represented 30% of our usage. Its budget is currently about $24 billion per year. Let’s use a quarter of that for an average for its overall annual budget. $6 billion times 34 years is about $204 billion. What have we gotten for our $204 billion?

Imported oil represents 70% of our usage.

Way to go Peanuts.

  1. Here’s a question in principle as it relates to the debt ceiling increase. If you believe, as I do, that our borrow (and print) and spend practices have gotten out of control; and you believe that someone might accidentally believe that we are a nation of laws rather than a nation of men; and you further believe that by not increasing the debt ceiling you can force the country to evaluate its income stream and prioritize its spending; then there can be no mitigating “deals” or “promises” that would cause you to consider changing your vote. It’s that simple. My good Congressman Pete Olsen, for whom I held out great hope, has now voted twice to increase the debt limit with promises of some magic beans in return or something like that. The test will come, as Boehner has already shown himself to not be up to the task, but some will choose to follow his lead rather than that of their constituents.

  2. In defense of the good Mr. Olsen (and only marginally so as I have the same dissapointments as you, in a general sense), I think we find ourselves at a point where, because of the actions of others in both parties who preceded him in office, we’re having to go with the least worst of a number of bad outcomes.

    It sucks that we’re at this point. It sucks even more when one realizes that we are saddled with an attitude among Establishment Republicans that merely not being a Democrat is enough, and they feel that we should be grateful that they are not. The attitude is simultaneoulsy condescending and dismissive, and the vindictiveness being shown towards those of us who brought them thier recent victory and who can do the most to help them in the future shows that they are both ignorant and selfish. Its beginning to appear that the qualifications for becoming a force in Republican politics on the local and national level is being snotty and smug.

  3. Here’s a question in principle as it relates to the debt ceiling increase.

    Not sure I see where the question is in what you said, but I pretty well agree with it. I’d bet a paycheck on the debt ceiling being raised with, as you say, a nebulous promise of magic beans or some such. Jim DeMint has shown some backbone on this but I can’t really think of any other Repub that has. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    /thank you sir, may I have another!!!

  4. Wagonburner forgot to mention the Department of Education given to us also by Jimmah.

    In 1980, it began with a budget of $6.4 billion ($16.5 billion in 2008 dollars).

    Today, it is the 3rd largest cabinet level departmental budget behind DoD and the HHS at $68.6 billion, a more than four-fold increase in 28 years.

  5. We DO have a voice. Two years ago nobody in TX cared about the Speaker’s race, and redistricting had never been a statewide issue. We made people aware of both of those issues by just speaking out mind in blogs, on Facebook, and making comments on news articles. Now is the time to bring that to the Republican Primaries in races from School Board to POTUS.

  6. Jim DeMint has shown some backbone on this but I can’t really think of any other Repub that has. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    Marco Rubio and Rand Paul have been pretty insistent there be fundamental and quantifiable changes before they would agree to raising it. A balanced budget amendment is one of the things they’re demanding. The excuse I hear, mostly from Republicans, is that it would take too long to pass it. This country got the 26th Amendment passed in less than 100 days in a tumultuous period of our history. This excuse can only lead me to believe that these bozos don’t want a balanced budget amendment. I swear these guys are going to make me go apolitical.

  7. Something just occurred to me.

    Its possible that Establishment Republicans are so frikkin stupid that they think the last election meant that we were only pizztoff at Democrats.

  8. #5 Dooood

    Mike Lee, Utah (announced filibuster with DeMint)
    Tom Coburn, Oklahoma
    Rand Paul, Kentucky
    Marco Rubio, Florida
    Bob Corker, Tennessee

    …have all said they would not vote for raising the spending cap without genuine spending cuts.

    Also, Lieberman of Connecticut, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Joe Manchin of West Virginia have said the same thing. McCaskill is also co-sponsor with Corker of the balanced budget amendment.

  9. G’Morning all

    Daughter Reesa posted on Face Book that she wore a full skirt yesterday and the wind let her do an imitation of Marylin Monroe, difference being she was wearing thongs. Bet it was a real crowd pleaser.

  10. Something just occurred to me.

    Obama Administration punishes reporter for using multimedia.

    Wonder what would happen if a reporter accidentally tripped on the cable and unplugged the teleprompter?

  11. We are not a racist countrah! We are not a racist countrah! Black QB drafted #1 into the NFL!

    To bad nobody heard ’cause a couple of white people were getting married.

  12. Wonder what would happen if a to the reporter if he accidentally tripped on the cable and unplugged the teleprompter?

    More likely this.

  13. Tim, are you talking about the Royal Couple? See Google’s logo today. Who knew — that wedding is taking place in some quaint little mythical fairy-land style country…

  14. I wanted to watch news this morning, but instead all I got was a big wissin limey wedding – ON EVERY WISSIN CHANNEL!!

  15. #14 OletimerLin

    One of the nice things about this time of year up here is, after months of bleak and dreary weather, after months of everyone bundled in layers of heavy clothing, spring arrives like a giant flash grenade. Everything blooms at once, wildlife has a riot and all the girls and women who looked like furry caterpillars in their bulky coats hit the streets, like butterflies, in sun dresses, mini-skirts and bright colors.

    It was very windy here yesterday and I suspect quite a few skirts were blown sky-high along the Eastern seaboard.

  16. #22 Texpat

    She was at Grand Central Station (where her office is). She said from now on that skirt gets boxer shorts underneath

  17. Ona more serious note, son AAARGH had to lay his bike down on West Belt yesterday coming home from work. Nothing but a scraped knee and elbow on him, but his Vee Rod took a pretty hard hit. Typical bike wreck. The woman ahead of him hit her brakes for stalled traffic, he changed lanes to the left, then she swerved over into his front wheel.

  18. #28 Geezer: Kneemail that AAARGH has a full and complete recovery with no infections, also thanks that there was no serious injury.

  19. To the master plumber via TT: Kneemail that your knee gets a DIVINE HEALING and you can get yourself back to work.

  20. #26 Bonecrusher

    The reality is that he is the equivalent of BROKEN WIND IN OUR FACES.

    “It’s a foul wind that blows nobody good.” (Shakespeare; Henry VI)

  21. #s 9 & 13,

    Thanks for your responses. To be clear, the only thing that interests me is not raising the debt ceiling. Spending reform simultaneously would be great, but shouldn’t preclude a refusal to raise the debt ceiling. What doesn’t interest me is wimpish whinings about what’s politically possible to achieve or bipartisan compromise. I gave more money politically than I’ve ever given in my life in 2010 to candidates like Jim DeMint. I consider it money well spent, but if any part of that coalition goes soft on the refusal to raise the debt ceiling, I’m pretty well where Hamous is:

    I swear these guys are going to make me go apolitical.

    I will assume a defensive fiscal crouch and just let the chips fall where they may. And fall they will.

  22. Bleg

    What wireless company do y’all use and what is your level of happiness with them (cost, signal, etc.)? Anyone use one of the non-contract companies like Boost Mobile?

  23. #35 – Hammy all I’ve read so far indicates Boost has very sketchy coverage at BEST

    We use both Verizon & AT&T (almost no place in the country that at least 1 of them doesn’t work)

  24. #32 et al – You see what I am talking about. Even the so called conservative tea party types readily admit that they are willing to trade off a “no” vote on the debt ceiling increase for some nebulous promise of future good behavior. I’ve been around long enough to know that the good behavior is going to happen the next time around, but this time it’s just an emergency situation (always, and emergency, next time we will do what we promised). Anyone who votes for the debt ceiling increase needs to go on the “do not rehire” list.

  25. Verizon – happy enough with them. Both kids have phones now, and we set up unlimited texting, so that keeps any potential minute overages from happening. Dude Jr. talks to his girlfriend that way a lot, or alternately does the voice thing during free nights / weekends. Mine is the only phone (HTC Incredible Droid) with a data plan. I think the plan is sort of overpriced for that at $30 / month for 3G (in addition to the normal bill) but it pretty well always works. Coverage of Verizon seems pretty good to me. It does get spotty out in W Texas though, but I think that’s true of any carrier.

  26. Hammie: re mobile phone: We, at the pulverizer compound use Verizon with an old contract, 1500 minutes, unlimited text to verizon customers, no data/surfer-dude thingie 2 phone contract for about $110/month. We never go over our monthly allotment of minutes, rarely out of signal contact.

  27. #38 El Corpulent One: I agree, DRAMATICALLY CUT THE WISSIN SPENDING FIRST BEFORE ANY NEW “DEAL” GETS SIGNED
    When Ronaldus Magnus cut the deal with the D’s to cut spending for the tax decrease, they increased it instead, Boooosh The Elder Cut a deal to raise taxes in exchange for spending cuts, and the spending cuts never happened.
    MESSAGE TO THE R’S: Cut spending now or cut your own throat.

  28. As much as everyone complains about the royal wedding and how irrelevant it is, it is still nice to see such a beautiful couple so much in love. I wish them both a strong, happy marriage and the wisdom and strength to deal with all the crap they’ll have to handle as a royal couple.

    Oh, and some cute little ones to bounce on the knee, and they grow up beautiful, wise, and strong as well.

  29. Even the so called conservative tea party types readily admit that they are willing to trade off a “no” vote on the debt ceiling increase for some nebulous promise of future good behavior.

    Oh yeah. You’re right. They sell out then the “good behavior” never happens.

    Look for all kinds of histrionics about how we won’t get police and fire protection, clean water, or any number of things if we don’t raise the debt ceiling. Utter crap all of it but that’s how they sell it.

  30. I’m always baffled at how a hive of inbred leeches continues to exist in any “civilized” country. The fact that the U.S. media conglomerate is so fascinated when two of them decide to make their blood bluer is downright mind-boggling.

    I heard it described thusly:

    “The royal wedding is The Superbowl for cat ladies and gays”.

    Pretty well sums it up for me.

  32. #45 TT: I REALLY DIG THAT HOUSE!
    To the wildfire you simply close-up and say pbbbllltth! Ditto that for hurricane and, of course, intruders. I wonder how long it takes to “secure the premises”? If it is within the 5 minute window it pretty much says ‘go pound sand’ to most tornados as well.

    Well, when the world goes to heck, this family will be protected!

    The house, with its movable walls, has only one entrance, which is located on the second floor after crossing a drawbridge. Seems like the perfect opportunity to use a flamethrower and defend the life of your family, while stylishly nesting in a piece of architectural elitism.

    Somebody stole my idea, but the flamethrower is actually a no-go for Zombies. Everybody knows its head shots that take them out. Using a flamethrower only results in having your brains being eaten by a flaming zombie.

  34. #47 SC:

    I lovethe smell of CH3NO2 in the morning

    I’m figgerin’ that would be Nitro-Methane to we simpletons, correct?
    I prefer the smell of N2O2 when I am feeling a little depressed:>)

  35. # 47 SC I’ve not been there since Daughter beat me in the new VS old Z28 race. She went 13.47 @ 113 to beat me in the old girl 14.01 MPH @ 98 MPH. This, after my .223 reaction time pulled me 3 car links ahead at the start. Then ’bout 1/2 track she just went right by me. :grin:
    The opening year, I think, I went with a buddy that Ford VIP tickets and we had a blast. That was the year that Eddie Hill broke into he 4’s, 4.99 first time it was ever done. They also broke the 300 MPH thresh-hold the next day.

  36. Add to my #51 Baytown is one of the fastest tracks because its only a few feet above sea level.

  37. #49 Sarge:

    Everybody knows its head shots that take them out.

    I beg to differ with you there, Sarge, YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE HEAD FROM THE SHOULDERS. One of these should do the trick quite nicely, but you gotta get close and you might get some gooo on your clothing.

  38. I beg to differ with you there, Sarge, YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE HEAD FROM THE SHOULDERS. One of these should do the trick quite nicely, but you gotta get close and you might get some gooo on your clothing.

    Its that kind of misinformation that gets people killed, young man.

    Read and learn, grasshopper—and don;t come back until you can snatch a pebble from the hand of a Zombie.

  39. #55 Sarge: Headshots work great for your run-of-the-mill terd-nozzle; if we are speaking of GENUINE ZOMBIES YA GOTTA TAKE THE HEAD OFF! That is not to say that with the correct ammo (12 ga, within 20 yards, OO buckshot, full choke) you can’t remove the head with a good shot.

  40. It always amazes me, the twists and turns these threads take. I could post a picture of posies, and the next thing I know we’ll be discussing MMGW and the effect on gardening, and how’s the best way to melt the blubber off of ole’ Al?

  41. The doctor has prescribed some anti-inflammatory meds. It seems he just strained it badly, didn’t actually tear anything. Some kind of fasciitis, I believe. Whatever – that’s between Hubby and the doc.

  42. Because some people here consistently make fun of the great state of Florida, I thought I would post this video loaded to YouTube yesterday by the President of the Florida Senate, Mike Haridopolos.

  43. Some kind of fasciitis

    Kinda like Obama’s economic policy.

    Ooooops. Too many “i”s.

    Never mind.

  44. #59 TT: If it isn’t much better next week, perhaps it would be helped with some manual intervention. I have pretty good results with knees.

  45. A guy builds a company from scratch to eventually employ 600 Americans and export their products to 85 countries.

    A clinic in New York buys some of their equipment, but does not see that employees use it properly nor do they bolt the machines to the floor as the manufacturer recommended.

    An employee is witnessed improperly using an exercise machine which then tips over and she ends up quadriplegic. The witness is not allowed to testify at trial and the jury, last Thursday, April 21st, handed over a judgement of $66 million ($49.5 against the manufacturer) for damages in favor of the NY clinic employee.

    The company has only $5 million in liability insurance and faces bankruptcy while the 600 employees contemplate the unemployment line.

    The man who started this company took $10 million of his personal wealth to make a movie on a shoestring about a subject in which he believed passionately all the while embroiled in legal proceedings which could destroy him and his company.

    The man’s name is John Aglialoro and the movie he made is called Atlas Shrugged.

    If for no other reason, see the movie because this guy had the guts to make it in spite of everything.

    Hey—

    Zombie killin is serious bidness. All kidding aside, there’s a school of thought for disaster preparation that can be summarized thusly:

    “If you’re prepared for a zombie invasion, you’ll be prepared for anything.”

    So, prepare for a zombie invasion. Practice making headshots, and don’t listen to Bonecrusher. If faced with 6 zombies, you’ll never survive if you try to cut thier heads off. A .308 M1A with a proper stock and sighting system is your best bet.

    But no flamethrowers.

  48. #65 TP,

    Thanks. Excellent info, and I didn’t know the story behind the movie until reading that. I think I’ll go see it this weekend. I also think I’ll make it a point to take the kids. They’re young, but old enough to deserve to know what kind of world it is they’re about to inherit.

    #66 Sarge: That is a real purty weapon, I wonner how much is costs?

    First, you buy an M1A Scout Squad Throw away the bi-pod and the crappy red dot scope if it comes with it.

    Then, you buy a Troy Industries SOPMOD Stock

    Then you buy an EOTech 512

    Magazines cost around $20 each for quality.

    To save money, reload your own ammo.

    Tell your wife you can pay for it with all the deer meat your going to bring in. It ain’t true, but its the usual story.

  50. You will also need back up iron sights, a sling, and some nifty tactical gear to carry your extra mags and ammo in.

  51. 73 wagonburner says:
    April 29, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Nuke the site from orbit.

    It’s the only way to be sure.

    Does any cool gear come with that?

  52. I don’t worry about zombies. I think they’re easily fooled. I’ve been walking amongst them for years. Now Pod People, that’s another matter.

  53. I’ve come to the conclusion that Bernanke is either a complete idiot or completely intent on destroying America. Maybe it’s his birth certificate we ought to have a look at.

    Preparing for pod people is no fun. All you need is a reasonably large supply of No-Doz. No gear, nothing that goes bang. No fun at all.

  55. #77 DOOOOOOOOODE: From your linkie thingie:

    The recession officially ended two years ago. Bernanke said the national economy is growing at a moderate pace and that job creation is gradually improving, repeating comments he made earlier this week at a news conference after the Fed’s policy meeting.

    On what wissin planet did the recession end?? Just because he says it don’t make it so, a cat can have kittens in the oven. . . . . . . .?
    This is from the genius that thinks it is ok to pay your Visa Bill with your Master Card (monetizing the debt) in order to finance your monthly steamship cruises, 96″LED 3D TV, your 5th vacation house and your 10th car ( I mean you have to have at least 10 for a decent fleet, afterall), etc. all while you are currently unemployed.

  56. #82 bone
    Recessions are fairly clearly defined in theory. They are three consecutive quarters of negative economic growth. It is possible for an economy to grow while shedding jobs, as well as the inverse – shrinking without shedding jobs.

    The Visa/Mastercard analogy you’re using is kiting.

    Monetizing the debt is using raw inflation of the money supply.

  57. On what wissin planet did the recession end?? Just because he says it don’t make it so, a cat can have kittens in the oven. . . . . . . .?

    The same ones that said we had Recovery Summer! last year.

  58. Yup, Bendover Bernanke seems to have gone the way of the skilled politician:

    LOOP

    1. Create problem.

    2. Obtain job “fixing” the problem you originally created.

    3. Take action that makes it look like you’re doing something to fix the problem, but in all actuality does nothing of the sort.

    4. When step #3 fails to fix the problem (as it always does by design) you use that to justify the need for you to hold the job you obtained in step #2 for a little longer.

    5. After you’ve held the job from step #2 for a little longer and still haven’t fixed the problem, use that to justify why you need to hold an even more powerful office.

    DO WHILE BREATHING

  59. Yes, in technical terms we are not now in a recession. Recessions can only be determined by looking backwards at previous quarter’s numbers. That doesn’t mean we’re in a good place economically by any stretch of a sane person’s imagination.

  60. Un-bee-leev-a-bull !!!

    Walmart will make criminals of our children, argues Washington D.C. commissioner Brenda Speaks, because “kids are kids” so they’ll shoplift and then “security will grab them.”

    Ummm….there’s a solution for that problem, lady. TEACH YOUR KIDS NOT TO STEAL!

    So when’s Daughter’s graduation? Hard to believe that its been 4 years.

  64. Lovely is downstairs as we speak write blog. She has cleaned out the refrigerator to make room for all the food for tomorrow’s graduation/engagement party. She’s making cake and her famous cookies.

    The actual graduation is next Saturday. The wedding just over a year from now.

    And in the meantime, I have to make Handsome Son has needs taken care of as well.

    And the business paperwork, hopelessly behind always.

    And make a stab at housekeeping every now and then.

    Motherhood. The greatest circus juggling act evvvv-errrr.

    52 SD

    That was the year that Eddie Hill broke into he 4′s, 4.99

    I was there. I saw saw 4 of the first 5 sub 5 second runs

  66. I’m standing in line at HEB. Someone left a stickynote by the card swiper:
    “So how’s that hope & change working out for ya?”

  67. “So how’s that hope & change working out for ya?”
    Oh I’d say about $3.79 a gallon, $81.53 to fill up the Ole Pick-Um-Up. :sad:
    In the early seventies I had a car that held 10 gallons and I could fill it up for $2.50 and go 330 miles.

  68. Off to shower and change to look at poofy dresses and have dinner with in-laws-to-be.

    And ST – flush your own um, hmm, er, um, “drut”. You crazy lady! ;)

  69. Dave, I also remember when gas was $0.25 a gallon! Midland had several intersections where there were gas stations on every corner, so several times a year there would be price wars at the location. Don’t remember what kind of mileage I got back then.

    Oh, and 100…

    Or it was till I Modify and lost it…

  70. Wycliffe and Memorial Drive, a Gulf, Sinclair and Texaco station on 3 of the corners.

    Around 1960, they had a gas war that took the price down to 15 cents a gallon. People drove from all over to fill up there. I was 8 yrs old and remember riding my bike through there and wondering why the cars were all lined up.

  71. Hamous

    Wycliffe runs north and south right after Britt Moore Road where we lived. In 1960, it was the last outpost of civilization heading west on Memorial. There was no Wilcrest, Kirkwood, Dairy Ashford, etc.

    If you kept riding out Memorial, it was nothing but forest and pasture all the way to what is now called Highway 6. All 2 lane blacktop and no shoulder with wide shallow bar ditches.

  72. #13;

    Mike Lee, Utah (announced filibuster with DeMint)
    Tom Coburn, Oklahoma
    Rand Paul, Kentucky
    Marco Rubio, Florida
    Bob Corker, Tennessee

    I don’t know bob Cork but the rest is a very solid bunch. Thus far I’ve been very happy with them.

  73. I can remember Ma and Dad getting the fambly into the Nash Beachwagon on Sundays and heading out to Hampton Beach. We’d stop at the gas station at the traffic circle at Rte 101 and Massabesic Lake road, he’d toss a dollar at the attendant. We’d drive to Hampton and back and he’d still have gas enough to drive back and forth to work till Wednesday

  74. #88 TT: From your linkie thingie:

    Unions are crazy
    Walmart uses union truckers for shipping, union labor does the construction, David Koch pays union workers union wages to make union TP and paper towels under the Georgia pacific brands. Factories use unions to make food. Every product Walmart sells has union labor. Unions get paid to refine crude to run the trucks.

    My daughter is building these stores. The problem is the mafia. The mob gets kick backs from distributors to independents. The mafia keeps Walmart out of Chicago. There is no way a mafia can get money out of a Walmart cash register.
    Report

    I’m figgerin that this is referring to a Wally World in Neuva Yorke with the mafia thing. An interesting thing to say the least. I wonder if the anti WalMart terd-nozzle is being paid or threatened by the “bent nose” crowd?

    I just made an online donation to the Salvation Army for Southern states tornado relief. They take Paypal which speeds it up.

    I googled Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Huntsville Salvation Army today and sent 3 checks via snail mail, the only one that I saw that had Pay-Pal was Birmingham and I got half way through it and thought, Pay Pal is going to charge them 3% (I know, I sell on EBay) so I sent a check. The fee is only a couple of bucks, but it’s the principal of the Thang. :wink:
    That said, Great Minds think alike! :grin:

  78. Dave, when I say “speeds it up”, I mean speeds it up for me. It takes too long otherwise to provide all the info for an online transaction. Not that I want to put in credit card or bank info for a bunch of different sites anyway.

    Snail mail, how quaint. :) I still have some of the original “Forever” stamps we bought.

  79. some people here consistently make fun of the great state of Florida

    I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Snail mail, how quaint.

    FWIW; I send out less than 2 checks a month, ’bout 10 years ago I started paying all my bills online and using a debit card every place I shop, I LOVE it, soo much better/faster than a check. I even use the debit card at the 10 items or less check-out, because I can swipe the dayaam card and be gone before the checker can figger out how much change I get back if I pay with cash. Oh, and did I mention I save a Lot in postage, I used to buy a book of stamps a month now a book will last me almost a year. :wink:

    “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin’ to? You talkin’ to me? Well I’m the only one here. Who the f*** do you think you’re talking to?”

    Well, uh, yeah.

    Oy oy oy!

    I’m just curious, did you bounce my #100 and replace it with this moose call or whatever it is? :)

    Cause I did see my post was numbered 100 until I edited it. But could you have bounced it to 101 even if I had not hit Modify?

    If this is secret moderator lore that should not be divulged, well never mind.

    If you haven’t learned by now, moderators are like gods – they can do whatever they want to do in the entire universe.

    Superman and Batman shudder when faced with Blog Moderators.

  84. Tim, be careful so you don’t get both of us banned from the Couch!

    Me, I’m suiting up for yard work. Today is trim the shaggy bushes and hedges day.
