Here is a song with consistent rhyming. It gives a whole new meaning to the word alliteration. The lyrics would also appeal to people who have the sky is the limit dreams. Video below lyrics.
Big Time Operator by Keith Hampshire.
I started off a newsboy on a paper
For a time I worked in an elevator
But all the time I knew that later I would be a higher rater Finally, a big time operator
For a while I drove an excavator (yes I did)
Then I became a wine and brandy waiter
A builder, then a decorator
Later on, an estimator
I’m gonna be a big time operator
(Oh ya got to believe in me)
I took a job as an airline navigator
Then I became a crime investigator (yes I did)
For a time, a commentator
Then I was an administrator
I’m gonna be a big time operator (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Well dont you know I’m gonna be in the big time baby
A big time operator
I’ll have a whole lotta people workin’ for me
Gonna have a chauffeur
An upstairs maid
Racing sports car
50 foot yacht
I’m gonna give new meaning to the word ‘big’ A big time operator now now
During a family road trip in 1983 to his parents cottage in Ontario, Mitt Romney admitted he left his Scottish terrier dog Seamus in its carrier on the roof of the family station wagon for 12 straight hours. Dog must have been pissed.
It is a good thing for Mitt that dogs don’t have the vote.
Other strange aspects of Mitt’s reality
AT A CAMPAIGN STOP IN IOWA, MITT PROCLAIMS THAT “CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE, MY FRIEND.”
CHALLENGE DEBATE OPPONENT TO A $10,000 BET.
ATTEMPT TO WIN OVER OUT-OF-WORK VOTERS BY TELLING THEM “I’M ALSO UNEMPLOYED.”
WHILE ON THE STUMP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, BRAG THAT YOU “ENJOY FIRING PEOPLE!”
REVEAL THAT LAST YEAR YOU COLLECTED “NOT VERY MUCH” IN SPEAKING FEES: $374,000.
There are some people that just have too much time on their hands. They let their imaginations run wild and start contemplating the End Times. Then they communicate with other people of the same ilk who are also interested in the subject, and before long group reinforcement causes these paranoids to believe the end is coming, and coming fast.
They are not quite sure what is coming, but whatever it is, it’s going to be real badass. It could be an asteroid, a tsunami, nuclear war, anarchy and the breakdown of society, famine, the rapture or an invasion by malevolent space aliens. Whichever one of these calamities occurs, the paranoids are going underground.
In the United States there are many companies that have built underground survival shelters of all shapes and sizes. From single family bunkers to massive ones that can hold a thousand people and support them for up to a year. The single family private shelters cost millions of dollars. If you are a blue collar worker you will have to rely on the sewer system when the space aliens start zapping the cities with death beams. Getting a spot in the giant shelters is also going to put a hole in your wallet. Getting a reservation in a big shelter costs in the range of $250,000. But then there is high-definition big screen TV and tread mills provided. As well as all the clean air, food and water you will need for up to a year. But if the space aliens decide to occupy the earth, I wouldn’t want to come up anytime soon.
One of the bigger doomsday shelter companies is Vivos. Below are some diagrams of the company’s shelters.
People that are introverts and like to be alone and have space to themselves should maybe find a cave instead.
The promotional images on the Vivos site intend to make people think Armageddon is a real and present danger.
Not all doomsday paranoids look as eccentric as this apocalyptic hillbilly. But all of their belief systems must be as ridiculous and crazy as Mad Max pictured below.
Check out this video in full. It is almost Hollywood quality. Making the doomsday concept a visceral reality for the converted.
Politically correct paranoid bureaucrats lose their minds and run amok.
The Toronto Sun reported Saturday that Jesse Sansone was arrested and strip searched by authorities after his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a man with a gun in her Kitchener, Ontario, kindergarden class.
Sansone, a father of four, said the picture was supposed to be of him getting “bad guys and monsters.”
The school, however, had a different opinion, and contacted the Family and Children’s Services.
When Sansone arrived to pick up his daughter, Waterloo Police arrested him for possession of a firearm.
But the “firearm” turned out to be a plastic toy gun that shoots foam darts.
That, however, did not stop authorities from strip-searching Sansone. Meanwhile, the couple’s infant daughter was taken from them and handed to a social worker as Sansone’s pregnant wife waited for over two hours, wondering where her children were.
Jesse Sansone was arrested and strip-searched after his 4-year-old daughter drew a picture of a toy gun in school.
As it turns out, all of the couple’s four children had been at Family and Children’s Services, being interviewed by social workers, the Sun reported.
“So, my wife was really panicking at that point,” Sansone said. “So her and the detective drove down to children’s services. They questioned each of my children.”
“At that interview, I wasn’t there, my wife wasn’t there, but my boys, all they know right now is: ‘Daddy and guns, guns and Daddy’ – my kids knew all the police were at the school because of me. Now I have to explain to them how much of a mistake this is,” he added.
All this over a picture of a toy gun drawn in crayon by a four-year-old girl.
“So many people dealt with this situation in the wrong way,” Sansone said.
“I know the principal really well, how could he judge my character in this way? I drop off and pick the kids up every day, I always say hello, I sign every report card, I go to every parent teacher meeting, I am an active parent at that school,” he added.
“The family is trying to decide what to do next, and they are finding a new school for their children to attend,” the Sun reported.
The school and the authorities defend their actions, saying that when a child draws a picture of a gun, they have a responsibility to act. But in this case, their action ended up slandering an innocent person and damaging an entire family.
“From a public safety point of view, any child drawing a picture of guns and saying there’s guns in a home would warrant some further conversation with the parents and child,” said Family and Children’s Service executive director Alison Scott.
Now, the Sansone’s are left to pick up the pieces after educators have turned their lives upside down.
“The first thing my daughter said when I saw her was, ‘Daddy are you mad at me?’” Mr. Sansone said. “That sums it up to me.”
The rock posters below speak for themselves. Many of the artists were more than likely influenced by the omnipresent mind stimulants of the 1960′s and 70′s like acid and mescaline. The truth seekers (and just plain indulgent hedonists) of the period tried many psychedelics. It influenced the music and the art of the era. Undoubtedly the music and the poster art was greatly enhanced for the observers themselves when they were under the influence of the mind-blowing hallucinogens.
ABC News’ David Muir, Michael Falcone and Emily Friedman report:
DETROIT – Standing on the 30-yard line of Detroit’s Ford Field, Mitt Romney delivered what was billed as a major economic speech before a crowd of about 1,200 supporters on Friday.
In his crucial home state of Michigan, Romney reiterated his new tax plan to applause from an audience dwarfed by the scope of the stadium that seats up to 80,000 spectators.
The Romney campaign promised an economic policy speech on filled with major new policy initiatives, but as it turned out, the venue may have been too big for his message. The supporters, sitting in folding chairs on the field of the indoor football stadium that is home to the NFL’s Detroit Lions, were surrounded by tens of thousands of empty seats.
“I want to thank the folks at the Ford Field for making this space available for us,” Romney said. “I guess we had a hard time finding a large enough place to meet and this certainly is.”
Humanity can keep its space-junk problem under control by removing about five big pieces of orbital debris every year from the huge cloud surrounding Earth, experts say.
Such an active remediation effort, combined with more passive measures like draining fuel from defunct satellites, would likely keep space-junk levels relatively constant for the next 200 years or so. And there’s more good news: We probably have a decade or two to figure out how to do it, researchers say.
“Orbital debris is a serious issue, but at the same time, the sky is not falling,” J.-C. Liou, of NASA’s Orbital Debris Program Office in Houston, said during a presentation with the agency’s Future In-Space Operations working group Wednesday (Feb. 22).
“I think we can continue to manage the current environment for some time — maybe 10 years or 20 years — before we have to consider debris removal to better preserve the environment for future generations,” Liou added.
In the Republican debate held on Washington’s Birthday the candidates were asked to describe themselves in one word. Santorum chose the word courage. If fits after a week of dancing with the national news media over the issue of Satan. Does he exist? Santorum says yes. The media says no.
It all started Monday when Matt Drudge posted audio of Rick Santorum speaking at Ave Maria University in Florida four years ago. Matt Drudge often relies on tips, and campaign opposition research operations have worked overtime this year dishing him dirt for posting.
The nuggets revealed show a Rick Santorum who is concerned about what Christians call Spiritual Warfare. The concept is derived from Ephesians chapter 6: 11-13 where St Paul warns: “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].”
Belief in Satan is pretty standard theology amongst Christians. Only the liberal, secular media finds it surprising that professing Christians hold such a belief.
We are pleased that Santorum stood his ground, saying to CNN, “If somehow or another because you’re a person of faith and you believe in good and evil is a disqualifier for president, we’re going to have a very small pool of candidates who can run for president.”
In his speech, Santorum explains his beliefs this way: “This is not a political war at all. This is not a cultural war. This is a spiritual war. And the Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies would have his sights on: a good, decent, powerful, influential country – the United States of America. If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age. There is no one else to go after other than the United States and that has been the case now for almost two hundred years, once America’s preeminence was sown by our great Founding Fathers.”
We couldn’t agree more with Santorum, and he should challenge Obama, who claims to be a professing Christian, if he also believes in the Devil. This would not only put the controversy in perspective, but would shine light on whether Obama believes in Lucifer or if he is a Christian heretic, far outside the mainstream of Christian thought.
However, we won’t hold our breaths waiting for a reporter in the White House Press corps to ask Obama if he, like Santorum, believes that the devil exists.
Santorum expounded his belief on why America is declining, saying,” … Satan has done so by attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity, and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has so deeply rooted in the American tradition.”
