Flying Cars From Carport to Airport and Back Again

From AeroMobile:

One of the Most Successful Men
in America Today

One of the most successful men
in DESTROYING America today, 
I meant to say; there's no denying it anymore.
Barack Obama is bent upon humbling our great nation, bring it to her knees, no longer the leading light of natural freedom and God-given rights.  
I read this morning from the Washington Times that the Zerobama administration intends to allow foreign Ebola patients, with full blown, deadly Ebola, to come to America for their care, and likely their deaths, and MOST likely their disease's spread into the heart of our country.

THIS IS INSANE.  THIS IS A PREMEDITATED DISASTER.  THIS IS EXTRA-CONSTITUTIONAL.  THIS COMES FROM ALREADY-DISEASED, LIBERAL MINDS.

WE ABSOLUTELY CANNOT ALLOW FOREIGN, EBOLA-INFECTED PERSONS INTO OUR COUNTRY, WHERE THEIR DISEASE COULD MORE LIKELY SPREAD THIS WINTER.  BECAUSE THERE ARE SEVERAL VIRAL DOCTORS WHO BELIEVE THAT EBOLA WILL BECOME AIRBOURNE IN COLD WEATHER, AS DO SIMILAR, INFLUENZA SYMPTOMS.(there is a summer flu, less widespread than in the cooler seasons)

THIS MAY BE THE FINAL NAIL IN THE DEMOCRATIC COFFIN IN THIS COUNTRY, WHEN ANY/EVERY AVERAGE AMERICAN BEGINS TO SEE THEIR TOWN BECOME HOMES FOR EBOLA INFECTIONS.
HOW?  BY SHOPPING MALLS.  SUPERMARKETS. SCHOOLS. HOSPITALS. SPORTS EVENTS. CASINOS**.

And by then, we will all be screaming for the government to do something for us.  Instead, the government, led by the successful imbecile Barack Zerobama, and all Democratic enemies within, will choose to please foreigners over the people of the United States of America.  Because of the cohort, mainline media's lack of reporting of the truth, more than 40% of Americans are unaware of the dangers their chosen leaders are bringing forth.

Rather than tell us the truth, the administration will lie to us again, reassuring that 40% that everything is OK, go back to Twitter, Facebook, or the NBA.  Just vote for them, and keep them silently killing us all.

** I have a contact at an Oklahoma Indian casino who told me this week!, that there had been a contagious infection scare at one of their larger casinos within the last 10 days.
While it was NOT EBOLA, it was a weeping, staph infection on a guest's uncovered legs.  That particular casino was forced to close down a small part of their operations to completely disinfect the games, chairs, doors where that man had sat playing, for six hours before becoming suspect and leaving.  One employee there has been quarantined and is under a doctor's care.

Rats on the Westside,
Bedbugs Uptown


Orkin, a pest control company, today released its first list of the top 20 cities for rodent treatments. Chicago topped the list, followed by Los Angeles, Washington and New York.

Midwest cities on the list included Detroit, Cleveland/Akron/Canton and Indianapolis.

The rattiest cities were ranked based on rodent treatments the Atlanta-based Orkin
performed in 2013. The top 10:

1. Chicago
2. Los Angeles
3. Washington/Hagerstown
4. New York
5. San Francisco/Oak/San Jose
6. Seattle/Tacoma
7. Detroit
8. Cleveland/Akron/Canton
9. Baltimore
10. Miami/Fort Lauderdale


Chicago has been on Orkin's pest radar before, snatching the top spot for most bedbug infestations two years in a row. The company compiled a list of cities with the most pest treatments (including ants, bedbugs, rodents and spiders) in 2012, and Chicago crawled to the top of that list as well.

Chicago placed No. 4 in a survey conducted by
cable channel Animal Planet of worst rat cities in the world.

And since 2006, large numbers of filthy rats from Chicago have been documented to have 
migrated from Chicago to Washington, D.C.  
Earlier migrations of deadly rodents went from Chicago to Washington via Little Rock, Arkansas (1970s), then to Chappaqua, N.Y.

Oklahoma's 10 Commandments Monument Demolished

My question is "Why was the monument placed on level ground, where something like this could happen?"  It is so sad, friends, that something so wholesome and reverent to our Creator, could be so easily wiped out by a dimwit with a car.


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP/CBS) - A man suspected of driving a car into a Ten Commandments monument outside the Oklahoma state Capitol is under mental evaluation, according to the Highway Patrol. 

"Investigators will continue to look into the case and coordinate with the Oklahoma County District Attorney on Monday, for any possible criminal charges," according to a news release from OHP Capt. George Brown.  CBS affiliate KWTV in Oklahoma City reports that officials identified the suspect as 29-year-old Michael Tate Reed Jr. from Roland, Ok.

The suspect was taken to a mental health facility in Oklahoma County, Brown said in the release.
The U.S. Secret Service said the suspect was detained Friday after showing up at a federal building in Oklahoma City, rambling, making derogatory statements about President Barack Obama, admitting to damaging the monument and saying Satan told him to do so.

"He claimed he got out of his car, urinated on the monument, and then ran over it and destroyed it," said Secret Service agent David Allison in Oklahoma City. "He said Satan told him to do it, and that he was a Satanist."  

Officials told KWTV the suspect admitted that he has been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and is off his medication. The suspect also told authorities that he was a Satanist.


Governor Mary Fallin released a statement condemning the act, 
and volunteered to help raise private funds to restore it.  
"This monument was built to memorialize the historical significance of the Ten Commandments in guiding our own laws and lives. It is absolutely appalling that someone would vandalize anything at the Oklahoma State Capitol - the People's Building - much less a monument of such significance," Fallin said in the statement attained by KWTV. "Our monument will be rebuilt and restored."

"ebola.com"

Body bags and money bags both.

Far be it from me, to suggest making money via the internet either through advertisement spots here, or by offering up some service or product ( Local Malcontent T-shirts now 25% off, @ $12.59, and LMC coffee mugs are an unbeatable value @ $5.99 ).

But being a conservative capitalist, I absolutely do not condemn the practice either.
It's just, well hell, it's the deadly ebola virus and the fear of, for cryin' out loud!

Lovingly lifted from CNBC.com, OCTOBER 9, 2014:
  • Searching for Ebola news? You may land on Ebola.com.
  • Turns out it's for sale and the guy who owns it is hoping a pharmaceutical co, to buy it off him.
  • It's not unusual for big pharmaceutical companies to hold domains for major diseases on the Internet. For example, the Cancer.com and Obesity.com domains are held by Johnson & Johnson, Diabetes.com is held by an affiliate of GlaxoSmithKline, and Arthritis.com by Pfizer.
  • But who would want to own the domain name Ebola.com?
  • We've had many inquiries on the domain over the years," according to Jon Schultz, president of Nevada-based Blue String Ventures and the owner of the Ebola.com domain. 
  • Schultz bought Ebola.com in 2008 for an undisclosed sum.
  • The current asking price for Ebola.com: $150,000. However, Schultz said the domain's price "is subject to change as the situation evolves."
  • He added: "$150,000 is not a tremendous amount for a premium domain.
  • It's conceivable, of course, that the life science companies are worried that buying the Ebola.com domain might give a perception of trying to profit from the deadly outbreak. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 3,800 people have died from the virus.
*******************************************************

... so very long ago, October 9th, 2014. 
Now, there's this sudden news about "ebola.com" 
from International Business Times dot com:

  • >$200,000 American.
  • Investors with close ties to a company run by a former New Mexico governor that promotes legalized marijuana have acquired the URL Ebola.com for more than $200,000, the International Business Times has learned. The group plans to launch a site dedicated to news and information about the dreaded virus in about two weeks.
  • “It’s going to be like a Drudge Report for Ebola,” Eric Miller, CEO of Weed Growth Fund Inc., said in an interview. “It will bring all the information about Ebola together in one place.”
  • The site will also carry advertising “at standard CPMs" (cost per mille, or 1000 impressions), said Miller, an investment broker and former vice president of Millionaire Magazine.
  • An SEC filing shows that Weed Growth Fund, of Scottsdale, Arizona, acquired the rights to Ebola.com from Blue String Ventures Inc. on Monday. The sale price was $50,000, plus 19,192 shares of Cannabis Sativa Inc., in which Weed Growth Fund is a majority investor.
  • That works out to roughly $214,000 in total, based on current share price of Cannabis Sativa (OTCBb:CBDS) of $8.55.
  • Miller said that’s a fair price to pay for the Ebola.com URL given the worldwide interest in the virus.
  • According to its website, Cannabis Sativa “has global ambitions. We believe cannabis is destined to become the next gold rush and we’re prepared to shape its future in a legal environment.”
  • Cannabis Sativa’s CEO is Gary Johnson, Republican governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003. He also was the Libertarian Party candidate for president in 2012.
  • Asked if the investment would still be worth it if the outbreak is eventually contained, Miller said, “That’s the best thing that could happen.”

Being Foreigners From Tulsa

I was made aware of a serious dilemma facing Oklahomans soon, late last night when the wife of a close friend told Leticia and me over coconut cake and coffee that starting in 2016, 
Oklahomans may need passports in order to fly anywhere
out of state.
Anywhere, like Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, or Los Angeles.


At first, we Malcontents had doubts about this:  We just flew into Toronto, Ontario in June, and while we had our passports on us, we were not asked for them when we landed at Pearson International,
nor when we arrived in Halifax, nor when we got back in the USA in Dallas.  
~ Leticia was asked to provide hers twice, to cash traveler's cheques while in Halifax, but she was
not asked for hers anywhere else either.

But it seems to be true.  Lovingly lifted this morning from Fox23, Tulsa (Sept. 18): 


TULSA, Ok. — You may need a passport flying out of Tulsa International Airport soon even if you aren’t going to another country
....



The Real ID Act which put federal requirements on states to make sure government issued IDs aren’t given to illegal immigrants and end up potentially in the hands of terrorists.



But in 2007, Oklahoma passed a law rejecting the Real ID Act and has not complied since. Because of that, Oklahoma driver’s licenses are not considered a valid form of federal ID.
The law takes effect in 2015 when Real ID will take effect at the federal courthouse downtown. The following year in 2016, Real ID will also take effect at the airport.  (you know that I didn't compose those two awful sentences. Some, well-paid journalist did.)
FOX23 was told the Department of Public Safety, a state agency, cannot make any changes to driver’s licenses to comply with the act, until the 2007 state law is changed or repealed.
A spokeswoman for Tulsa International Airport said the airport is currently studying the issue, and they will comment on the new requirements and what passengers can do once they look over their current policies.

For GOD'S Sake

The most beautiful voice in the world today, singing 'The Lord's Prayer':



Amen.


Zip Code 38336

Fruitvale  What a pleasant sounding name for a town.  By the way, it is in Tennessee.

Sometimes, the most important discoveries are made by following the most overgrown trails, and that is how I became aware of the treasure, Fruitvale, Tennessee.  Doesn't that sound like someplace you'd like to stop and buy a Coke with your wife, then discover a tiny restaurant which serves the best you ever ate, homemade chicken-n-dumplins (with carrots), with sourdough rolls with butter and honey?   
It would only be made more perfect, if the restaurant was nextdoor to a antique/junk store.  

Anyway, I discovered Fruitvale, TN this morning, because one of the 65 townspeople stopped by this bloggie, and left a trail for me to follow on SiteMeter: "Oklahoma City, Washington, D.C., St. Louis, Fruitvale, Tennessee, Sydney, New South Wales...."

An oddity, so I looked her up.  What an old, rich story behind Fruitvale.  I would love to come visit such a town.  Err, "village" is how Wikipedia.com describes her:

    The Fruitvale area was settled during the first half of the 19th century. At first it was known as Jackson Hollow. In the 1850s, the Memphis & Ohio (M&O) Railroad was built through the area.
The site of Fruitvale started to be known as "The Switch" because a railroad switch and siding had been constructed there. The switch enabled the community to become a location for shipments from and to the surrounding area. By the last decade of the 19th century, the community was an important center for trade in perishable produce grown on nearby farms. By the 1870s, the community had acquired the "Fruitvale" name, reflecting its role as a shipping point for a large quantity of fruits and vegetables. The Fruitvale post office was established in 1893.

    Ten years later, a directory of local businesses listed a blacksmith shop, a sawmill, and several stores. An ad in the "Alamo Sentinel" in 1900 says that T. P. Taylor has moved to Fruitvale and will deal in drygoods, notions, boots, shoes, a full line of staple groceries, and will take country produce in exchange for groceries. He must not have remained long for his name is missing from the businesses listed in the 1903 directory. This 1903 list included these businesses: Marlow Bros. Grocery; Nelson, Raines, & Scarborough Groc.; J. R. Jackson and Co. Dry Goods and Groceries; W. Z. Williams, blacksmith; R. N. Raines, express agent; R. W. Riggins & Co., Sawmill.

    Brothers J.O. "Ollie" and Oscar Boyd established a grocery business in Fruitvale in 1906 and expanded their commercial interests in the subsequent years, adding the J.O. Boyd General Merchandise Store in 1918. Oscar Boyd sold his interest to his brother in 1920. During the 1920s Ollie Boyd, who also served as Fruitvale's postmaster, started a barber shop and built a potato barn and a pea/fertilizer shed. In 1930 he converted the barber shop building to house an office for management of his business interests. He made extensive land purchases, eventually accumulating 1,200 acres of farmland on which he produced a variety of crops and raised hogs, sheep, and cattle.

The Boyd farming operations employed many seasonal migrant workers who were housed in bunkhouses that Boyd built in Fruitvale.

Later developments

    Some time in the early 20th century, a large wooden fruit shed was built adjacent to the railroad siding. Rail cars could be parked adjacent to the shed for loading of food boxes and crates. A wooden crop scale was installed in 1925.   In the late 1930s, electricity became available in Fruitvale, and Ollie Boyd built an electric-powered corn crusher to produce feed for beef cattle and hogs, as well as a tractor shed.

Dear friend(s) in Fruitvale, I am not belittling you.  I'm as serious as I can be.  We live in a wide spot in the road called Yanush, Oklahoma; barely 120 population. And we genuinely believe there's no finer place to live than in a tiny town:  To me, McAlester is huge, and a city the size of Dallas is agony.

As a kid, I heard of a Texas town called "Sweeny Switch" from my uncle, and I hunted and searched for Sweeny Switch, until I finally found it:  And I loved it for it's only remaining crossroad and single grocery/gas station store, built in the 1910s.  Likewise for me, there's no place like Wister, and Shady Point, or Adamson, or Langley, Oklahoma, just the sweetest places ever on this earth.

Don't even get me started on Mountainburg, Arkansas~ or I'll go on for hours here.
Or the diner there, or the cafe I visit so much down in Caddo.

I will get over to Fruitvale, Tennessee one of these days, for a visit.  Keep the ole fires burning.

Democrats On Suicide Watch


Desperate for any crumb of good political news, Democratic politicians nationwide are celebrating another Black teenager killer by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, wherein they can promote their only remaining, all-too-familiar political bait, Racism.

It is all too clear that everything which controversial, Democratic leader Barack Zerobama touches becomes poisonous to Americans and to our Nation, and Congressional Democrats are abandoning Zerobama in droves, en mass.


The new war in Iraq/Syria against ISIS;
The Ebola disaster invading our nation, and engulfing the world ;  The unprotected, open Southwest border;  Higher food prices;
Lower standard of living and wages/income; New, hidden taxes, fees and regulations.

It is the image and the very name of their thoroughly unpopular party leader, Obama, which the (D) candidates fear and avoid most. All the while, and still, the American political media worship
this imbecile.  Next up, the worship of the equally mentally unstable, imbecilic, Hillary Clinton.

The Democrats:  "Promote Unique Firsts", Since We are OUT of Governing Ideas:
First, maybe A Negro, then A Female, then A Hispanic, then An HIV+ Homosexual,
A Handicapped/Disabled Person, A Dolphin, A Transgendered, and eventually,
perhaps A Two-Headed, Vegan candidate

    But it is each individual, Democratic Congress critter,  who's the real enemy to the American nation. For it is from these liars and their staffers, the unpopular laws have come under which we suffer most.

NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM CAN REFLECT UPON THEIR RECORD, CONSIDERING OBAMACARE, AND THE UPCOMING HIT ON JANUARY 1, 2015 THAT EMPLOYEES WITH COMPANY-PROVIDED HEALTH INSURANCE WILL REALIZE.

What "good" are Democrats, then?

SF Giants' Pitcher Throws the Wong Pitch

In the top half of the ninth inning, of last night's game, the San Francisco Giants
tied the game at 4 all, off the St. Louis closing pitcher, Trevor Rosenthal.

In the bottom half of the ninth inning, of last night's game, the St. Louis Cardinals 
untied the gameoff the San Francisco closing pitcher, Sergio Romo.

Romo threw the Wong Pitch on the 0-1 count to the St. Louis 2nd baseman, Kolton Wong.
The catcher, Buster Posey, had set up for a low pitch on the outside corner of the plate,
but Romo's Nono came inside, directly over the middle of the plate, belt high, for Wong.


... who promptly sailed that baseball into the right field bleachers for a game winning,
walk off home run.  The Cardinals won last night, 5-4.

Wait until St. Louis batters have a chance to visit San Francisco's AT&T park, where that massive right field wall stands.... ~!

Cardinals in 6 games.
