I gotta admit, while I’m not missing the daily mess I am missing the cat.

A body of an unknown individual was discovered this afternoon on Maverick Street in Fitchburg Massachusetts.

Multiple Fitchburg detectives are currently on the scene examining the Red Truck with commercial plates with a car carrier in tow (and a new red Mercedes on it) and have removed items from said vehicle. The body wearing white sneakers is currently lying covered perpendicular to the truck in question.

Police are keeping the curious away from the Maverick Street school where the body is currently laying but have not closed the street at this time. Police have spoken to at least two people in the area who have cooperated with police but declined to comment at this time to this reporter.

The street has not been closed to residents at this time but police have described this as an active scene.

More to come…

Update: Spoke to a witness who claims to have seen the driver of the truck with the trailer park in front of a white multi-family home at 100 Maverick and enter the premisses. The witness identified the driver of the truck as the deceased and said he was alone.

Update 2: In the process of uploading several videos I shot at the time I’ve talked to several neighbors and one eye-witness.

Between 3-4 PM the Red Ford Truck with a car carrier turned onto Fulton Street nearly striking another vehicle that had to swerve toward Romano’s to avoid it. The truck parked in front of 100 Maverick street. A witness who earlier spoke to police said a person in a black t-shirt got out of the cars and was speaking to someone on a cell phone. The odd thing was the person (the deceased) was standing in the middle of the street rather than on the sidewalk while making the call.

Witnesses who saw the truck assumed they might be delivering the Red Mercedes.

A different witness claimed the man entered the multi family at 100 Maverick.

At the same time a block away a large accident took place that drew police fire and ambulance and a large crowd from the area.

I arrived on the scene just after 6 PM

police had covered the body and were searching the van keeping people at least 5 yards away from the body.

Detectives examined the contents of the truck and removed several items from truck.

I don’t know if the car was incidental or not at this point but police didn’t shut down the street. At lease one car arrived at the house at 100 at that time, the people seemed strangely (at least to me) unconcerned about the body.

I then left, got my laptop and returned to the scene and talked to two witnesses that gave me the basis for the following report

I also noticed that several people arrived at the multi family during this time

A person living at 100 did not take kindly to my report claiming it was inaccurate but they declined to speak to me or elaborate.

After the body was removed a tow truck arrived but tow the pair but a second larger truck was needed to tow both the truck and the car carrier together. During this time I spoke to other neighbors and eyewitnesses who provided me with the information above and was the basis for this final video:

None of this information establishes a cause of death, suicide, heart attack, drugs, accident, but I was told that any further question would be handled by the Massachusetts State Police which has implication of its own

That is currently what I know

Henry Gondorff: If they put you on the spot, we got to fold the con.

The Sting 1973

Word is out that Harry Reid is trying to push the so-called “immigration” bill faster.

“I’m just telling everybody that we’re going to either file cloture on this on Friday or Saturday or Sunday or Monday,” Reid said as the Senate opened its morning session. Filing for cloture means that a final vote would be held three days later. So if Reid filed for cloture on Monday, June 24, a final vote on the bill would be held on Thursday, June 27. The Senate’s July Fourth break starts the week after.

The reason for this is plain, the longer this process goes on and the more attention this bill gets the less popular it becomes to the general public.  Reid need to pass this bill before the public gets wise to the  border security con where even the “breakthrough” simply doesn’t solve:

even though it sets a trigger before immigrants can move to permanent legal status, it does not require security enhancements to be in place when most of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States are granted an initial, six-year legal status. Under the Gang scenario, that would happen within months of the bill becoming law, long before the new security measures are required to be completed.

Only a fool would anyone actually think that legal status, once granted, will not be made permanent no matter what is said or promised before the bill is passed. That however is only one of the two cons being played, the second one is the concept is the idea that they need 70 votes to provide cover for the GOP in the house.

In fact Reid is looking for the GOP votes to provide cover in the senate for his OWN caucus.

Before the 2010 election the House and Senate without any GOP help passed Obamacare over the strong objections of the American people.  Promises that the bill would become more popular did not pan out and Democrats suffered horribly when election day came around.

In 2014 21 seats currently held by democrats are up for election and a full dozen of them from Alaska to West Virginia are seats that could go for the GOP.,

With Tea Party protesters again descending on the Capital and scandal shaking their foundation the last thing people like Al Franken in Minnesota who won only by the slimmest of margins, Mark Begich in Alaska whose vote for Obamacare has not been forgotten and Kay Hagan of North Carolina need is another unpopular bill to be used against them in a tough re-election campaign.

And if the bill remains in limbo or even worse wait till next year after the primary and election season begins, Democrat candidates for open seats might have to take a position on this bill, something Reid desperately wants to avoid.

Harry Reid doesn’t need those extra votes for the sake of the GOP, he needs them for the sake of a Democrat Senate in 2014.

Reid is playing two cons here, the Tea Party has recognized one, the GOP and the RSCC has no clue on the other…

…we hope.

Unlike Harry Reid there is no con here. The weekly paycheck goes toward the monthly mortgage and your dollars that you pay me with specifically go to that goal.

11 of you kicking in $20 means this week’s paycheck is achieved and the chances of making the monthly goal increases tremendously.

Of the delights of this world, man cares most for sexual intercourse. He will go to any length for it-risk fortune, character, reputation, life itself

Mark Twain

It’s been a tough 50+ years but the penultimate battle of the Sexual Revolution is finally over and one of the last barriers to empowerment has happened.

The Obama administration on Monday abandoned its fight to keep age restrictions on sales of a widely used morning-after contraceptive pill

The sexual revolution was a tough fight consider where we once were:

In days past a man who wanted a women was expected to be a good provider, to be able to support not only a wife but an entire family through the sweat of his brow.  He was expected to call on a woman, likely with a chaperone to keep an eye on him to offer self-control and to slowly but surely win approval of both the woman and the family to some degree before advancing to the next step.

And if he advanced prematurely or attempted to attain a conquest otherwise he was subject to the disapproval of culture or a shotgun to the back to make sure he did the right thing.  The right thing being marriage, and if you finally secured a wife after meeting all these requirements divorce was not considered proper or acceptable culturally.

As a young man it was just as hard if not harder if you wanted a girl your age, since a girl might get a “reputation” if she gave into your advances.  You found yourself constantly watched.  The lack of effective or easily available birth control and social stigma meant there was a powerful incentive for women to say no.  Abortion almost universally was considered a moral wrong, in fact the Hippocratic Oath taken by every single doctor specifically forbade it so taking that risk meant an unwanted child likely put up for adoption.  STD being less common meant both you or a young lady would be easily marked so it became very tough to actually bed a girl or even manage what might be considered 3rd base.

And don’t even think about using stimulants such as drugs or booze to get a women or if you were a teen, a girl to a state of willingness.

And if you crossed lines concerning age, or consent if you might find yourself beaten within an edge of your life…if you were lucky.

And for those unable to get what they wanted, pornography was something hidden behind a counter or under a bed, decency standards set strict limits on what was acceptable and what was not, both in film and on TV.

Ah how times have changed.

Now men are free, the idea that a man must support a family is a quaint anachronism.  A person who expects such a thing is “paternalistic”.   The idea of sex restricted to marriage still taught by the catholic church is considered a laugh and when a celebrity like Tim Tebow comes out for such a thing he is considered puritanical and attacked mercilessly in the press.  The Hook up culture means that the very idea of marriage (which we are now redefining for the convenience and ego of others) is obsolete.  A man doesn’t have to make a commitment in fact powerful incentives exist in the other direction.

Parents once the cornerstone of protection and moderation are now told that there is no chance to prevent sex so we must make sure it is “safe” as if large quantities of sex at an immature age or even at a mature age have no psychological impact.  We encourage and teach our young, in fact we make it part of the curriculum all that might be known about different types of sex and paint it as normal and natural even to the point where those parents that don’t go along with these changes are not informed or able to object.

We make multiple forms of contraception available to those least able to go through the decision process and make laws that facilitate the hiding of these activities to their parents practically a civil right.

And we even re-define sex to exclude activities that were once considered rare, in fact a president of the United States does so on camera to defend a relationship with an intern and a party not only defends him but continues to celebrate him in the same breath as they attack opponents who might object to abortion.

And pornography has been decriminalized and mainstream to the point where no male over the age of 10 has not seen acts that would have gotten a person jailed 60 years ago and because of this young girls find themselves held to such a standard and expectations from a culture and media that celebrates sex above all things and if you aren’t providing such services to a man there is something wrong with you.

And most amazing of all, we define and celebrate and accommodate promiscuity as “liberating” to women and “empowering” and suggest that any other such decision is sexists and holding women back.

And even now there are people donating thousands to defend the right of an adult to have sex with a person underage, we have academics and celebrities defending such things.  It’s only a matter of time until that last barrier falls.

In short men.  It’s been a long fight but the sexual revolution is over…

….We WON!

Update: Dr. Helen elaborates:

Single men were once looked on with suspicion, passed over for promotion for important jobs, which usually valued “stable family men,” and often subjected to social opprobrium. It was hard to have a love life that wasn’t aimed at marriage, and premarital sex was risky and frowned upon. Now, no one looks askance at the single lifestyle, dating is easy, and employers probably prefer employees with no conflicting family responsibilities. Plus, video games, cable TV, and the Internet provide entertainment that didn’t used to be available. Is this good for society? Probably not, as falling birth rates and increasing single-motherhood demonstrate. But people respond to incentives. If you want more men to marry, it needs to be a more attractive proposition.

For the first time in a while we had some movement on the paycheck front yet I still find myself at less that 30% of the way to the weekly paycheck.

Given that most of the week was spent under 10% (in fact under 1%) that’s a nice change but I still need your help to ensure that I don’t face three consecative weeks without a full paycheck.

If 11 of my readers kick in $20 I’ll make my paycheck for the first time this month and be at least half way toward my mortgage payment.
