Big Oil to Congress: Don't Fuck With Us

That's right, while some people blame Democrats or Republicans, I blame the corporations that have had it too easy since Andrew Jackson. While I strive for clean healthy food, and energy independence, my taxes, and yours still have to deal with corporations that think they need free money when the CEO's make over, $20,000,000 a year.

Don't believe me? Fine, read it yourself.

Big Oil to Congress: Don't Fuck with Us

(Yes, you should be pissed off.)

Chooks have landed! Ahhhh!

Yesterday I was at Coos Grange with the Mrs and picked up some pullets. I have never owned living chickens before, but I am sure it won't be as hard as cranky Amazon Green Parrots or Macaws that I have met in the past.

We picked up 2 aracaunas (green or blue eggs), 1 buff orpington (brown eggs), 1 barred rock (brown eggs), & 1 golden laced polish, the kind with the big puffy hat (white eggs if a hen but this one could be a rooster as this type was unsexed). Eggshell color has nothing to do with what is inside, which tastes the same to 99.9999% of the population.

It's been nearly 24 hours, they are doing well in their new home. Later today I am going to be holding and petting them according to my wife, but for now, it is time for more coffee, and time to be a Perma-blitzer and get out on the land again & do some work!!!
