What A Sleeze Bag!!!

Ex-aide: John Edwards Promised To Marry Mistress After Wife Died

Posted: 8:03 am EDT September 20, 2009
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A man who once claimed to have fathered the child of John Edwards' mistress says in a book proposal the former presidential candidate is the real father and that Edwards and worked with his campaign finance chairman to hide that secret, according to a newspaper report published online Saturday.

The New York Times said the book proposal by former Edwards aide Andrew Young states he helped facilitate the affair between Edwards and Rielle Hunter. According to the newspaper, Young wrote that Edwards once told Hunter they would wed after Edwards' wife, who has cancer, died.

Edwards told Hunter that the ceremony would be held on a rooftop in New York and the Dave Matthews Bands would make an appearance, the newspaper said, citing its examination of the book proposal.

St. Martin's Press has said Young signed a book deal with the publisher in June and it involved a strict confidentiality agreement. A spokesman for the publisher did not immediately return a phone message and e-mail seeking comment Saturday.

Edwards has said the affair with Hunter ended in 2006. That year, Edwards' political action committee paid Hunter's video production firm $100,000 for work. Then the committee paid another $14,086 on April 1, 2007. The Edwards camp has said the latter payment from the PAC was exchanged for 100 hours of unused videotape Hunter shot.

The same day, the Edwards presidential campaign had injected $14,034.61 into the PAC for a "furniture purchase," according to federal election records.

Edwards, a U.S. senator representing North Carolina from 1998 until his vice presidential bid in 2004, acknowledged in May that federal investigators are looking into how he used campaign funds. Grand jury proceedings are secret, and the U.S. attorney's office in Raleigh has declined to confirm or deny an investigation.

Edwards adamantly denied during an interview with ABC News last summer that he had fathered a child with Hunter, and he welcomed a paternity test. His wife, Elizabeth, has said she doesn't know if her husband is the father.

Young said in 2007 he was the child's father. Hunter said around the same time that Young was the father and the birth certificate does not list a father's name.

Michael Critchley, Hunter's attorney, declined to comment Saturday. A lawyer for Young did not immediately return messages left at his office Saturday.

Joyce Fitzpatrick, a spokeswoman for Edwards and his attorney, Wade Smith, said that Edwards would not comment Saturday. Smith has said Edwards may make a statement at some point in the future about the paternity of Frances Quinn Hunter, who is 19-months old, but there was no timetable for that.

Young hasn't spoken publicly since saying he was the father in 2007 and has repeatedly ignored reporter requests for interviews.

Young got his last campaign paycheck in the middle of November, a month before he and Hunter publicly declared through attorneys that he was the father. Fred Baron, who was Edwards' national finance chairman and a wealthy Dallas-based trial attorney, said last year he quietly sent money to Hunter and to Young's family to resettle in California.

Baron, who died following complications from cancer just a few months after Edwards acknowledged the affair, said he provided the money on his own, to "help two friends and former colleagues rebuild their lives when harassment by supermarket tabloids made it impossible for them to move forward on their own."

The New York Times said the book proposal states Edwards knew from the start that he was the father of the child and expended considerable effort trying to conceal that. The proposal says Edwards pleaded with Young to claim paternity and asked Baron to check whether a doctor would fake the results of a paternity test.

Air Duct Cleaning

"Air duct cleaning" is such a hoax, and is therefore a completely unnecessary expense. It would probably take 20,000 years, before your air ducts are clogged enough to actually restrict air flow!!!

Hands & Feet

It has always amazed me the people of negroid descent have virtually "white" palms of hands and bottoms of feet, as if the rest of their color is just a stain.

I feel like if I had been born that way, it (the color mismatch) would bother me to the point of trying to stain/darken those areas in order to match the rest.

Hey, maybe that's why Michael Jackson lightened his skin, because he couldn't stand the mismatch?

"Gridiron" Is Such A Dumb Word

Exactly how the word "gridiron" got to be used for the game of football is beyond me. For one thing, the field has no grid; for it to be a grid, is has to have "X" and "Y" coordinates. It does not. Secondly, there is no iron on the field, either.

Somebody undoubtedly failed miserably at trying to make a wimpy sport sound "tough". I say it is wimpy, because each team plays a measly 16 game a year, a mere one game a week, and their so-called playoffs are a mere one game per round. Shoot, in hockey, sometimes they play 4 games in 5 nights! Now THAT is tough.

Der Struwwelpeter

Der Struwwelpeter (1845) is a popular German children's book by Heinrich Hoffmann. It comprises ten illustrated and rhymed stories, mostly about children. Each has a clear moral that demonstrates the disastrous consequences of misbehavior in an exaggerated way. The title of the first story provides the title of the whole book. Literally translated, Struwwel-Peter means Shaggy-Peter.

Hoffmann, a Frankfurt psychiatrist, wanted to buy a picture book for his son for Christmas in 1844. Not impressed by what the stores had to offer, he instead bought a notebook and wrote his own stories and pictures.[1] Hoffmann was persuaded by friends to publish the book anonymously as Lustige Geschichten und drollige Bilder mit 15 schön kolorierten Tafeln für Kinder von 3-6 Jahren (Funny Stories and Whimsical Pictures with 15 Beautifully Coloured Panels for Children Aged 3 to 6) in 1845. It was not until the third edition in 1858 that the book was published under the title Struwwelpeter. The book became very popular among children throughout Europe, and, writes author and researcher Penni Cotton, the pictures and characters showed a great deal of originality and directness.[1]

Struwwelpeter has been translated into several languages. The first English translation appeared in 1848. Mark Twain's English translation of the book is called "Slovenly Peter."

In 2006, Fantagraphics Books published the first completely digital version of Struwwelpeter, reinterpreted and illustrated by Bob Staake.

Best Church Sign Yet!

Whilst driving around all over the place during work activies, I spy many changeable church signs that try to be cutesy with their (believed to be) clever sayings.

But the other day, I came across the best one yet.

It simply said:

Don't Worry
Be Happy!

I can actually relate to that!

Eco-Friendly My Ass!!!

Had a load of "100% recycled" paper products the other day. Problem was, the load came all the way from New Jersey to Florida!!! The amount of fuel used to ship it, far outweighed any benefit of the recycling. It would have been much better (ecologically) to have a non-recycled product coming from a Florida paper plant. Yet, some buyers of the product are going to feel sooo good about paying MORE for a product to do their part to help the environment (I roll my eyes).

The Sanctity Of Life

What Is A "Sport"???

OK, a sport is a game, such as baseball, football, tiddlywinks, etc.

But the word itself is trying to mean too many things to too many people (i.e. has too many definitions), which befuddles me!!!

For instance: why are certain articles of clothing called "sport jacket" or "sport coat", when you NEVER see them worn during any actual sport??? Is it because they are CHEAP (compared to a "suit")???

This brings us to an apparent other definition: in the automotive industry, "sport" does indeed mean cheap (in most cases), such as having a painted plastic bumper instead of chrome, 2 doors instead of 4 and a shorter wheelbase (such as in the Explorer photo), vinyl seats or vinyl floor instead or cloth seats or a carpeted floor.

But in European vehicles, the opposite is true as far as what "sport" means. There, it is usually a more expensive vehicle (i.e. more luxurious), or has a more powerful engine, further confusing the definition.

Then there is me: I often "sport" while bantering about theism/super-naturalism. Further adding yet another definition!

El Yucateco Hot Sauce

Man, this hot sauce is HOT HOT HOT!!!

Tried some at a Mex restaurant in Orangeburg, SC. It doesn't hit you at first. Then all of a sudden you flame up!

In the mean time, found same exact same sauce at Wal Mart's Neighborhood Market in Oviedo, and got some (to use sparingly!!!).

Bear Creek "Darn Good Chili"

Found at Wal Mart (and perhaps other places), Bear Creek chili is pretty darn good. It is self-contained, except for the water, ground beef, and tomato paste. Give it the ole college try!

"MLK Blvd."

OK, so I travel around A LOT, often thru small towns. I find that practically every two-bit town has an "MLK Blvd." I simply cannot believe that they are there because of the town's own free will. There simply HAS to be coercion, such as threats to withhold Federal funds, if said Blvd. is not erected. There really needs to be a major investigation into possible illegal coercion!!!

What Is The Point?

What is the point of having ridiculously gaudy tire rims on a car, pickup, van or SUV (unless you are a pimp)??? I'll tell you - there is none. These true buffoons spend an ungodly amount of money on tires and rims, and the result is:

(a) tire tread life is greatly reduced from normal tires, and
(b) replacement tires cost WAY more than normal tires, and
(c) they end up with a way poorer ride than normal tires

Ideally, cars should have:

12" rims for a sub-compact car.
13" rims for a compact car.
14" rims for a mid-size car.
15" rims for the largest of cars/pickups (such as Lincoln Town Cars, and full size pickups).

Straying from these guidelines is quite foolish and just plain dumb!

Truth Truly Is Stranger Than Fiction!

The other morning whilst driving, I coughed, and a small bead of mucus flew and landed on the center of my steering wheel. Not knowing what to do, I just left it there for later removal. The bead resembled a small bead of hot glue, in color, opaqueness, and shape.

The day went by, and I was expecting the mucus to dry and shrivel in size. It didn't. At the end of the day, I went to remove mucus bead with my fingernail, expecting it to still be mushy, as it had not shrunk in size (at all). But much to my surprise, it popped off, was hard, and resembled VERY MUCH a bead of cooled hot glue, in texture, color, opaqueness, and pliability (i.e. was bendable with plasticity), and truly seemed exactly like a piece of plastic - weird, eh???

Jumping Jehosafats!

A couple questions!!!

(b) When they jump, typically how many are in the jumping group/flock/bunch???

I have so many questions in my head, and answering these two questions will help to diminish the list. Thanks!

Awesome Trucking Proposal

I propose that the D.O.T. equip each and every commercial vehicle on the road with an electronic satellite notification system, whereby a truck driver enters in the license plate and State of vehicles that drive as little as one (1) mile an hour UNDER the posted speed limit on two lane roads, which results in said vehicle being impounded for 30 days for said violation. In addition, a second violation results in a 90 day impound, with lastly, a permanent impound for a 3rd violation.

The purpose of this strict regulation, would be to curtail rude motorists from interfering with interstate commerce!!!

They Ought To Put All The Environmental Extremists In An Institution And Shoot Their Lawyers

It is just plain lunacy to put thousands out of work and increase food prices to boot:


I saw a church sign that said "If you don't like the way you were born, try being born again".

I have no opinion whatsoever on their curious statement, as I absolutely cannot remember being born in the least bit.

In fact, I doubt ANYBODY has actual memory of being born, so their sign is therefore completely useless.

The K.I.S.S. Principle In Action

I firmly believe in the K.I.S.S. Principle (Keep It Simple Stupid!).

Way back in the mid 80's and old guy name Walt at then Martin Marietta taught me the Principle, and I've used it ever since. The idea is to keep things as simple as possible, making them no more complicated than they absolutely have to be.


Around that same time (mid 80's) me and my friend Joe (a fellow engineer) had to go to the Ocala plant to fill in for another engineer (who could not go for some unrecalled reason) to get an ESS Station (Environmental Stress Screening) up and running. Well, it turns out that the station violated the K.I.S.S. BIG TIME. The idea was to vibration test 18 circuit boards at the same time. The buffoon designer of the vibration fixture had it where you mount the circuit boards to be tested onto backplates, and then slide the fixture slots, and then hydraulically clamp the backplates into place.

Trouble was, the vibration data showed that unclamping and reclamping the backplates got totally different vibration data from previous data, meaning the clusterf... of a vibration fixture was totally unusable. The sheot hit the fan when we reported the problem to Management.

So, Joe and I did some research, and found out that they needed to test nowhere near 18 cards at a time; that testing only 6 cards at a time was just fine. So we designed a simple, solid block, that held 3 card on front and 3 on the back. Worked perfectly!

Applying the K.I.S.S. Principle to other aspects of life, I find that it is best to believe in what is real, rather than in what "might" be real. Life is too short to chase your tail over stuff that might not even be real.

No Wonder Hispanics Have To Talk So Seemingly Fast

It takes an incredible amount of Spanish words to make a simple statement, so Hispanics must make up for it by talking incredibly fast, or else they'd never be able to say what they wanted to say.

Example: The warning on the wall of The Home Depot restroom was regarding shoplifting. It took five (5) words in Spanish to simply say "WE PROSECUTE". Weird, eh?

"The Truth Will Set You Free"

Billboard Display

Saw a buffoonish billboard, with a picture of a black child (what does that have to do with it?) that said "2 of 5 Blacks Are abortion!"

I seriously doubt that 2 out of 5 of our living negroidal citizens will be killed by abortion!!!

"IF" what they mean is: "2 of 5 Pre-Human/Potential Blacks Will Be Terminated by Abortion", then I say: It is because 4 out of 5 blacks conceptions are unwanted or inappropriate!!!

"My Boss Is A Jewish Carpenter"

I really feel like asking these buffoons who blindly display that bumper sticker: "Yeah? what did he recently build?"

I also feel like having a bumper sticker made up that reads "My Boss Is A Muslim Plumber". Hehe!

If You Buy Bottled Water, You Are A Doofus! - Plain & Simple

Water is heavy and it wastes a horrific amount of fuel to deliver it to stores in bottles, on top of the wasted petroleum to make the plastic bottles.

If you buy bottled water every week, you are probably spending hundreds of $$$ a year, when you can accomplish the EXACT same thing by spending around $10 a year on a charcoal filter for under the kitchen that takes 5 minutes max to change.

Wise up, people!

Being Against Abortion = Being FOR The Bastardization of the Population

If you are against zygotic or fetal abortion in all cases, it means you are undeniably FOR the bastardization of the population.

There are WAY too many births presented by unwed mothers in the USA.

The 1st line of defense is pregnancy prevention. If you are for pregnancy prevention for unwed females, then you are hypocritical, plain and simple, if you are against the 2nd line of defense: abortion.

In addition, unwed motherhood certainly leads to significantly increased poverty and crime. You are effectively for those too, if you are against all abortion.

It is time to be pragmatic, people!

The Letter "W"

What buffoon decided to name the letter "W" double-u??? It should be called "double-v". True, some lazy people handwriting the letter "W" make it look like a double-u, but this is incorrect; it should have distinct W points, top and bottom!!!

I Came Close To Eating Dog Treats Thinking It Was People Food!!!

At Big Lots we bought 2 packs of Cloud Star brand Pork Jerky Strips for $1.25 each. I fully thought it was human food, because there is no large print on the front (or back) labelling saying it was for dogs. In large print it says "Tender Jerky Strips" and "Pork" at the bottom (

Only after my son noticed it had "crude protein guaranteed analysis" on the back, did we get concerned about eating them. Then (before eating) we finally noticed in the fine print on the front of the bag it said "Treats for Dogs"!!!

Those buffoons at Cloud Star are lucky we actually have a dog, or I would have been doubly upset.

Outlaw Bad Urinal Designs NOW!

There should be a law against bad urinal designs. You know, the kind that it is impossible to pee without getting splashed back, no matter how low you try to restrict the flow to minimize splashback.

The Mystery of the Disappearing and Contaminating Soda

OK, so the other day I found part of a OLD 12-pack (maybe 6 cans) of "Sprite Re-mix" non-diet soda tucked away in a nook/cranny in our RV. All the totally sealed cans were low on soda, from 1/4 to up to 90% I'd say. I looked at the bottom of a can, and the expiration date was 2004. So I open the sodas to dump the remaining down the drain, to find some soda was perfectly clear while others were opaque and gelatinous, while still others had a bunch of black goo chunks!

One notable observation, was that there was a tremendous amount of palmetto bug/ cockroach poop in the cardboard carton. Is it POSSIBLE that such bugs have a way to actually penetrate the aluminum can with a minute hole to suck out the soda, and this is how the cans emptied and got contaminated??? This is a very big mystery to me. Any ideas???

Embryonic Stem Cell Research; The FAKE Controversy

There is no real controversy about embryonic stem cell research; because to say an embryo is a person or a human being is perfectly identical to saying an egg is a chicken or a chicken is an egg. No, a chicken is a chicken, and an egg is an egg. They are two totally separate entities. End of controversy!

Furthermore, one absolutely must distinguish between a human (i.e. a complete human being) and human tissue. Cancer in the human body is indeed human tissue, but you'd hardly consider such substance a person, right?

Lastly, A complete human being consists of body (i.e. the biomass part), mind (i.e. chemo-electrical contents of the brain), and soul (i.e. one's personality). An embryo has a greatly incomplete body, no mind, and no soul; therefore falls massively short of being considered a "person".

Idea To Bring Unemployment Rate Down To Zero

All the government needs to do is shut down every single traffic light in the country, and replace them with (hired) humans with whistles and big STOP signs to direct traffic.

I don't understand the word "hardware". It was first coined eons ago, long before computers and software were invented. Therefore, they should have simply called it "ware" instead of hardware, eh???

Trucking Update

So far, so good with my new trucking company, Carroll Fulmer Logistics out of Groveland, FL. I am much better off than my old company, Heartland Express, both in income potential and types of loads. I had incremental improvements switching from US Xpress to Landair Transport to Heartland Express, but the latest switch (about a month ago) is comparatively a quantum leap!

95% of my loads are for Home Depot; either from a distribution center (Lakeland, FL, Savannah, GA, or Groveland, FL) to a store, or from a plant somewhere in the southeast to one of the distribution centers.

Plus, I still can be home every weekend and sometimes during the week.
