FURB's Cut the Crap Blog, Episode 3

First the good news:. I was MVP in my office for the month of August. I received a 15% raise! I was promoted to district leader. So good things are happening for me in my business. This is great for me, as I badly need to bolster my finances.

However, I am still struggling.

FURB's Cut the Crap Blog, Volume 2

Fear of Mothra

Well Hi there!

Welcome to the second installment of my Cut the Crap series of blog posts.

On August 27. 2013 I took and passed my Life Insurance Lincense Exam, scoring 85 out of a possible 100 correct answers. Woo-hoo.  While that is a pretty terrific score and all, I'm afraid that the hard work has only just begun.  I am now set to start studying for my series 6 & 63 Securities Licensing Exam.

Really, the problem I'm having right now is fear.  

"Fear of what?" You ask?

Giant Catfish Faces Extinction: A Fish Story?

It is unknown how many Mekong Giant Catfish there are in existense according to my soon to be released audio production on this topic.  I make reference to this blog post a couple of times in that audio, so I'm posting it in advance.

The audio is derived from two videos that I encountered.

Cut the Crap, Episode 4

I could give you a load of excuses why things aren't going well for me right now, but that is not really why I am writing this series, is it? No! I'm here to cut the crap. So as valid as those excuses are, they do not belong here, in Cut the Crap, Episode 4.


John McCain and the War Pigs Descend on Syria


The other evening when I was traveling home from work, I heard a recording of Black Sabbath's War Pigs on the radio. I was literally moved to tears. You must be thinking that I'm mental to cry over something that kicks ass as much as that song.

Obama to Sign Int'l Gun Ctrl Treaty June 3rd

Un Logo dirty window

Two weeks ago Mr. Goldsmith and I discussed the possibility of the U.S. Government enforcing the United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances. Now it seems that the Prez will be signing a treaty restricting the right of American's to own and use firearms.  We briefly discussed Rand Paul's uppityness about the prospect of the Gov't of the U.S. enforcing such a treaty.  We'll dig into this a little more.  For more from my source, see this article from the Breitbart.

Will U.S. Force WA, CO To Comply With Convention on Psychotropic Substances?

I read an article posted by Cathy Smith (the wife of Sci-fi writer L. Neil Smith) which posited that Obama will force Colorado and Washington states to comply with U.N. treaty.

UK Libel Law Gets an Update, Hampers Privacy

I hope to discuss this with Gardner on Monday's Show, 2013-05-13.  I hope we get a chance to.


European Union Wants to Regulate Growing of All Fruits and Veggies?

Fruits and Veggie Cultivation to Be Regulated In the EU



Yeah I know this seems a bit far fetched, but I think this is something that warrants further discussion.  I'll be modifying this post as I prepare to discuss this with Gard.  

Should the Federal Reserve Be Abolished?

Book Review: L. Neil Smith's "Ceres"

Ceres is the most recent installment of the Ngu family saga.  The Ngu's were spawned by human Martian settlers, who clashed with United Nations forces sent from Earth to quash dissent.  The Ngu's went on to settle other worlds.  It helps a bit if you have a cursory knowledge of the solar system's geography, as Smith's creative universe extends from planet Earth, to the dwarf planets of Pallas and Ceres (in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter).

The Dalai Lama (L) and Steven Seagal (R)


I've had an illuminating evening.  I've gone all over town with my children by myself (three different stores with some amazingly great kids who handled the excursion amazingly well).  We all work together to get what we want.  We even offered gold as payment (see interactive map)
