This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock, powered by energy generated solely by Southern California Edison and manufactured by the Sony Corporation.

I then took a shower in my house constructed by Centex Homes, sold to me by a Century 21 real estate agent, and mortgaged by Citibank.

After that, I turned on my Panasonic television which I purchased with a Washington Mutual credit card to a local NBC Corporation affiliate to see what their team of hired meteorologists forecast the weather to be using their weather radar system.

While watching this, I ate my breakfast of eggs and bacon, both produced by a local farm and sold to me by my local grocery store, and took my prescribed medication manufactured by Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Astra-Zeneca, and Novartis.

When my Motorola-manufactured Cable Set Top Box showed the appropriate time, I got into my Toyota-manufactured Prius vehicle and set out to my graphic design workplace and stopped to purchase some gasoline refined by the Royal Dutch Shell company, using my debit card issued to me by Bank of the West. On the way to my workplace, I dropped off a package at the local UPS store for delivery, and dropped my children off at a local private school.

Then, after spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the company-mandated standards enforced at my workplace, I drive back to my house which had not burned down in my absence because of the high manufacturing quality of the products inside and of the company which built my house, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the alarm services provided by Brinks Home Security. I was able to rest easy knowing that even had this happened, I would have an Allstate insurance policy which would cover any damage to my home and anything that was stolen.

I then logged onto the internet, financed and ran in part by various different private corporations such as Google, Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon, and posted on the Huffington Post and Daily Kos about how capitalism is the source of all evil in this country.

This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy.

I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the Municipal Water Utility.

After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. While watching this, I ate my breakfast of US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time as regulated by the US congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the US Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

Then, after spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the department of labor and the occupational safety and health administration, I drive back to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and the Fire Marshall's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.

I then log onto the Internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration and post on Prepper and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right.

I guess I'm confused, how do you get power from Southern California Edison to Springfield Illinois.

Moved out of politics ..

Possible spammers as the IP-address of the gunnut27 is not located where "he" says "he" is from .. and the same for flowergurl15. "She" might be from Indonesia and not from Florida ...

This thread (and the two "newbies") might just disappear ..

I woke up this morning by the sound of my alarm clock powered by my off-grid system.
Didn't shower with the water supplied from my own well, yet.
Turned on the TV powered again with my off-grid system, turned to Fox news to get the latest bad news and dirty political ads, turned it off to save power and anger.
Had some homemade biscuits and fresh squeezed juice from my orange trees, granted made coffee from some poor and under payed coffee picker and producer.
Went in and turned on the laptop and again powered by my off-grid system, and yes was forced to connect via a greedy and powerful corporate entity.
Felt secure in the concrete encased home I built a few years ago, started a fire in the wood stove fueled by a renewable wood source and decided to go back to bed and ponder what project I'm going to work on today around the house.
Ain't retirement great.:D

Flowergurl, history tells us socialism and government are like hemorroid surgery: it might be necessary, but it's best to have as little of it as possible.

I was just showin' the trusted ones some of the spam that shows up on PS - some is just a "weird" posting like this one and others are trying to sell shoes or purses or viagra or a penis enlargement system or just try to get people to visit their porn-sites ...

Some spam is easy to spot (shoes) and some spam is hard to distinguish - like this one.
