Why Are The Economic Terrorist Not Being Stopped?

If these workers are sent home because of these illegal protest, why are they not arrested? This is insane, and Barry and his mentors are loving every second of it.


The protest was part of a coordinated action targeting 11 West Coast ports. Some unions, including the one representing Oakland teachers, supported the attempted blockade. But the longshore workers union and other labor groups said shutting down the port would harm stevedores and truckers.

“It pisses me off,” said trucker Mark Hebert, 47, as he tried to get into the port this morning. “I am losing money. I don’t get paid when I am just sitting here. I’ve got a truck payment and insurance payment just like everyone else.”

Conservatives And Food: Is There A Connection?

I am starting to think there are some connections. They easiest place to start is fishing and hunting. The obvious rugged individualist in me believes it is my moral obligation to provide grub for myself. Thing is, bbqing the meat might get old after 50 years or so!

While it is easy to kill and grill, it does not work so well when it comes to veggies, sweets, and some other stuff I have no idea how to make. If my belief that our economy and nation will some day implode, then I better get started in my “learnin” how to make my own viddles. Over the past few weeks, I have become aware of how many excellent blogs are food-based here at Word Press. So to all my gueest and new blogging friends I say hello, welcome, and hope you visit this right-winged nut Hillbilly often. Though I tend to blog less on weekends, and during my 70 plus days off every summer from work. It is hard to type with a golf club, barbell, or a beer in my hand!

Merry Christmas to all.

Calamari Pomodoro

adapted from North End Italian Cookbook

1 ½ pounds cleaned calamari rings (I purchase cleaned, calamar rings frozen)

¼ c. olive oil

1/ bunch scallions, chopped

1 shallot, finely chopped

2-3 garlic cloves, finely minced

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Srirachi sauce

28 oz can San Marino whole tomatoes, crushed

Fresh basil, tarragon, mint and oregano

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

½ cup fresh parsley, chopped

Lemon wedges for garnish

Rinse and dry calamari rings, set aside.

In a large skillet on low heat, heat olive oil and sauté shallots, scallions, garlic, crushed red pepper for approximately 5 minutes. Raise heat to medium high and add in calamari. Toss lightly and quickly, adding in few dashes of Srirachi sauce. Saute for 2 minutes, remove calamari with a slotted spoon and set aside.

If necessary, add a few more drops of olive oil and add the tomatoes, crushing with a wooden spoon. Gently simmer the sauce adding in the mix of fresh basil, tarragon, mint and oregano. Add in additional crushed red pepper and season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue to simmer for about 15 – 20 minutes.

Return calamari to the skillet with the chopped fresh parsley. Simmer to heat through about 3-5 minutes. Allow to rest for 10 minutes to marry the flavors. Serve at once with some crusty ciabatta bread.

Some mornings we wake up with, or are woken up by a nasty surprise… an ailment of some sort or other (my friend Randy likes to call it “a Malady“). Alas, this was the case for me this past Saturday morning. The flu is definitely making the rounds in our neck of the woods. In some extreme circumstances, however, one may awaken with an acute case of… Lamonia (rhymes with pneumonia).

Lamonia is a serious affliction often visited upon those who either work too hard or play too hard. You know you have “Lamonia” when you just want to lay in bed all day.. and moan.
Given the relative “newness” of this affliction, here are some tips to keep in mind when caring for someone stricken with a dire case of ”Lamonia”:
