2014 Examples of Permaculture


I like these, but they need some pragmattic design work.
You can actually design the garden to hide things from pests like deer & birds... the trick is to figure that out.

The Nonsense People OPENLY say to Defend Torture 01

The Nonsense People OPENLY say to Defend Torture 

This will be my first recorded outlet of the kinds of emptiheaded nonsense people spew out in public without even thinking, nor understanding what they are talking about.


There are these persons whom have been "friends" with me on social media, such as "Facebook". they're not actually my real friends, but most likely people that I played video games with, or people whom knew me via others/networking, or groups. Or, perverts that just want to 'be my friend" because I had photos of myself with cleavage & makeup on.

Often, they DON'T show their actual faces, nor even use their real names. They also only regurgitate talking points, often propaganda, that they sling around reactionarily without even thinking about what they're talking about, and are quick to make everything about sides (your side vs. my side) because they can't think in anything other than a dualistic black & white, and can;t distinguish between complex nuances in the "shades of gray".

If you disagree with whatever they've been conditioned to think, they accuse you of it attacking them by attacking you first and you replying, and questioning them.

They also don't understand what words like "liberal" and "conservative" actually mean, and sling words around dismissively, thinking they know what they're talking about.

Here's one  such person, today (December 15th, 2014) going by the name  
Kevin Metier.

I made some posts, logically stating how people whom are tortured are victims, and that creating a victim means someone committed a crime. victims are the result of a crime. It's also morally wrong. It's not any kind of NEW argument, it's been around for centuries, and many laws, such as Common Law, Magna Carta, and the US Constitution Bill of Rights, and even the Nuremberg trials are also NOT NEW.

But, this guy comes at me with this:

Oh, was somehow the use of a person falling from the towers is supposed to do what? make me feel guilty, or shut up, or nullify what I said?

Funny thing is it doesn't. I resent the use of this person's tragedy to be used, LIKE DICK CHENEY DID, to justify invading Iraq FOR PROFIT, and using repeated torture to get a phony "lead" since Iraq HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH 9/11. 

Not only that, but Cheney & bush DENIED that there was ANY torture going on FOR YEARS!
WHY???? Because it's A WAR CRIME.

So, when I responded to his impulsive, and thoughtless attack, he wrote this: 

This is the same guy that is often self righteous with religious  anything whenever it suits his whims...
And, by the way, I'm also ANTI-Feudalism, so this little 'princess' quip is just more nonsense he thinks might hurt my feelings... but, I actually UNDERSTAND what I talk about, or write about.

And, then he doubles down, admits he condones torture and evil.

Well..... I wonder what his boss might think....

Dad's New Jersey Pig Roast Mid August 2014

Roasting A Pig

Here are some highlights from my Instagram:
(But scroll down for more in depth photos of the process)

We also had burgers, and many many other things, including 8 slow smoked racks of ribs.

Me waiting for my friends to show up.

Much of my hard work in setting up. The tables & chairs were all hand washed by me.

The Waters Slide:

The Process of Roasting a PIG:

Step One: GET A PIG. 
This pig was specially selected, free range, had a nice happy piggy life. My father knew the people, the company, and everything was arranged. The entire slaughter & butchering process was humanely done, clean, and above highest standard in NJ.

Step Two: 
Set the carcass somewhere wrapped up, and on ice so as to stop it from spoiling, attracting pests, bacteria, premature rot, prevent odor, maintain freshness.
Here's it's set in the bathtub, which was washed before hand, and also after it was removed.

Step THREE: Move the pig to the place to be roasted, and have it fit with a rotisserie shaft, and wrapped in chicken cage wire to keep the tender meat in place while roasting all night 7 all morning long. It will need to roast for about 12 hours or more.

This spray bottle has oils, and water, to help the pork skin, and meat maintain moisture, but also to crisp up and brown on the outside to help seal in the natural fluids & juices throughout the process.

Step FOUR: Roast the pig all night, slowly on low heat.

My father is an electrician/inventor, so he built & rigged all this equipment to specification all on his own.
(My mother says I take after my father... but, she learned to build stuff herself from him, and does similar things as well, but not at this scale necessarily, unless she is friends with welders... which could happen because she knows lots of blue-collars.)


After about 1-3 hours roasting:

By Morning and noon times the pig looks like this:

All that's left is to remove the roasted pig to cool down, guests arrive, and then finally start carving it up, then serve to guests.

Even after it's been set to cool down, it's several hundred degrees, and when I was served mine over an hour later it was steaming hot to the touch.

I was also drunk, which is why I have no move DSLR photos to show you...
