We did not know till last night that Saad Hindal, who is amazingly talented and a very nice guy to boot, had painted that amazing, very evocative mural in Concord — at the gas station (now closed) right opposite Concord High School (where all of his kids attended).

If you want a mural painted by Saad for your home or business let me know. My contact is over here >>> You will not regret it. You will have a treasure on your hand.

Given that I, on principle, abhor human suffering, of any sort, I was always in favor of the Government workers getting back pay — as was the case with the last shutdown 17 years ago.

I can’t imagine what it would be like not to get the back pay. It would devastate families. So, I am relieved and happy about the back pay, though as a political junkie I am well aware that neither the Senate or soon-to-be-impeached Obama has approved it. But, it will happen.

So, I yet again ask the most fundamental of question.

Given that they will receive BACK pay, why aren’t they BACK at work?

No work, no pay. I understand that too.

Back Pay, Back to work. That is the American way.

So what is the deal here?

This is such a farce. Plus, to my esteemed friends in the Tea Party — what are you saving now, other than your face and privates?

Back pay coupled with all the loss in productivity will cost the country more than if the Government was kept open.

The ONLY thing that deserved to be closed and it did that all on its own because of the fraud perpetrated by Obama brown noser Bryan Sivak was Healthcare.gov. That isn’t a joke. That system is a billion dollar FRAUD on the U.S. taxpayers.

Cracks, As Was Inevitable, Start To Appear In The Cordiality Between Current Pope, Francis, & Ex-Pope, Ratzinger Over Latin Mass.

This is why I was always so against papal resignations. Having two ‘popes’ around is always a sure fire recipe for potential schism and definitely disagreements. That is why we hadn’t had a papal resignation, prior to that of February 2013, in 598 years.

I always screamed, possible SCHISM.

Well, it isn’t a schism as such, YET, but it sure could be given that the issue in point is the always divisive, ever controversial Latin Mass,

So when I saw this post all I could say was: ‘Here we GO! I knew this would happen’.

Ratzinger, as we came to know, is a extremely vain, egomaniac — even by papal standards. That he waited a whole 6 months before butting in amazes me. I expected him to do so sooner. This is but the start — unless the Vatican, as I had always advocated, resorts to their ‘Plan B’.

This is SO Lake Winnipesaukee — the playground of the ultra-rich, President Mittens Romney, Wolfeboro, NH.

Of course, I would love one but my house is cheaper than this beaut. But, of course, there are plenty around who could buy one of these on their AmEx and not even notice it.

To see these puppies over Alton Bay would be something.

We could have flying hovercraft racing up and down the Bay. Might be as good as the 2013 Americas Cup — those boats just looked like they were flying. These puppies really fly.

I will try and see IF Steve Parker, of Parker Marine, will sign-up with Hammacher-Schlemmer to be a sub-distributor and get a few of these into his marina. For those who know that marina, you have to navigate under a bridge to get to the main lake per se. Not so with these. There is plenty of taxiway on ‘the river’ prior to the bridge. You can pickup speed and then FLY over the bridge. WOW.

These could rejuvenate this aging Lake. We really need new genres of toys for the rich. Some of my other suggestions for this Lake given that I know it well and know what people like …
