October 2003 Rants and Raves
Be sure you go back and view my
“Current Rants and Raves” page and read all about my travails regarding our moving agents and experiences. For the time being, it is a continuing saga.
I went to a town meeting last night. (Sometime in August 2003) Why? Because Wal-Mart wants to build a HUGE megaplex store near a residential area in my hometown. It was interesting to watch government “of, by and for the people” in action—NOT!!! Wal-Mart hasn’t factored a POWERFUL and PISSED OFF WITCH into the equation. I will (with the help of my “otherworldly” helpers) bring that company to its knees. It begins now. So, no matter what the end result is, it will suffer and suffer and suffer. It had better not move to Morton, IL. No one wants them here, anyway. Therefore, they must go or suffer. So Be It!!!
Raven pipes in with an UPDATE *****
Just incase those of you who are reading this didn’t ‘catch’ what I said on my
”Current Rants and Raves Page”, I will add it here:
UPDATE***October 25, 2003***Look what happened to Wal-Mart!!!
On Thursday, October 23, 2003, federal agents raided Wal-Mart’s headquarters and 60 of its stores across the country. It arrested more than 300 ILLEGAL workers in an immigration crackdown at the world’s biggest retailer. The law enforcement sources said the investigations grew out of earlier probes of Wal-Mart. All of the arrested workers were IN THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY.
Illegal aliens (people in USA without proper papers) were seized (“nabbed”) at Wal-Mart. “Officials say chain KNEW of contractors’ violations of the law!”
Wal-Mart is in really big trouble, now.
Hey! If any of you Wal-Mart execs just happen across my website remember that “it is not nice to fool with Mother Nature”. i.e., don’t piss off a Witch!!! Stay away from Morton, Illinois. The people DO NOT want you here. You have stirred the ire of a REAL honest to goodness Witch that can make things happen!!! This is just the beginning. My “otherworldly helpers” will keep assisting me in my protest against you. If you do, indeed, continue with your plans to build in Morton, then you can rest assured that there will be even more legal annoyances troubling your company. GET OUT OF TOWN!!! Most of the citizens don’t want you here. Why would you build where you are NOT wanted and WHY would you build in a controversial location after not being wanted here in the first place? GO AWAY!!! BE GONE!!! SCAT!!
SO MOTE IT BE!!!
I wonder if American citizens realize that illegals take away jobs from others in this country. Oh don’t give me that “they do things legal citizens don’t want to be bothered doing as a job.” Nonsense! Poppycock! That is a cop-out. If we don’t have rules for illegals how are we going to have citizens of this country understand the rule of law? And, yes it DOES make a difference to the citizens of our country. I was just thinking the other day about what made America great! Maybe some of you don’t enjoy history or your history classes BUT, you should start paying closer attention in class. America was the place where immigrants came to get a new start—no argument there. And yes, it was a great opportunity for them, but they came LEGALLY!!! Now, you will need to grasp that concept before we go on. Okay, so they came and worked very hard to build a country and to make a nice living for their loved ones. They did it with a spirit of thanksgiving and hope. They did it with the ‘rule of law’, and with a belief in a power greater than themselves that many would call deity which they gave thanks to and hoped for help from at all times. By the way, this nation was founded on principals among which is the FREEDOM OF RELIGION! Christians live here as do many other religions. The religious far right creepies are NOT helping this country! They are only serving their own intentions to bring everyone under the banner of their particular form of Christianity! Be careful Roman Catholics, they don’t like you, either. Remember, this is a nation that celebrates freedom of or from religion! It wasn’t just Christians that built this country. GET OVER IT!!!
America had jobs. Jobs were IN THIS COUNTRY---NOT SENT ABROAD SO THAT CORPORATIONS COULD MAKE MORE MONEY TO LINE THE POCKETS OF A SELECT FEW!!! Note: In the last three years under Dubya’s administration, America has lost THREE (3) MILLION JOBS!!! ****Just quoting the facts…***
What made this country so great is that people were generally honest, hard working and honorable. They paid their taxes and worked hard to help build a better community and country that would insure a better future for their children and their children’s children. Then came WWI (but that’s another story for later…)
I would like to interject at this point that many USA companies not only send jobs overseas for
the bankrolls of foreigners, they ALSO DON’T PAY ANY TAXES TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT!!! They are reaping the joys of our country without putting anything back into it!!! If you don’t believe me, then go to
Google.com> and look it up for yourself. Start with putting
‘USA companies who seek tax shelters in Belize’ in the box and see what you discover.
What we seem to have today is a country of nincompoops who want the government to do everything for them, give everything to them----while others turn a blind eye to the lawlessness and apathy that permeates our society. Wake up people!!!
Okay, I’m done preaching now, but every now and then, we need to be reminded that if we don’t take care of our precious freedoms and live up to our responsibilities, they just might be taken away from us. There are no more “Americas” to flee to. Think about THAT!!!
Thanks for letting me vent. Blessings, Raven
End of ‘Update”***
Women and Wal-Mart by Ellen Rosen to see just one of the reasons why I can’t stand that store. Actually, my reasons are legion. All I am saying here is that if they go ahead and build their store where they plan to build it, I will curse them over and over and over again—them and the people who sold them the land. They have absolutely NO idea what I can do to them. If they did, they would no doubt move that blasted store somewhere else. Oh, and if you have any stock in that company, I suggest you sell it soon. Meanwhile, go to
Google.com and see what YOU can discover about that company. Isn’t this interesting that---In the last six years, judges have slapped the company with at least 75 sanctions for destroying, altering, and hiding evidence, according to documents filed in numerous suits against Wal-Mart across the country. It has racked up millions in court fines for destroying photos of accident scenes, denying it performed safety studies, and concealing company records.” “At first blush, 75 violations amid thousands of cases seems an irrelevant percentage -- except that the number appears to represent more sanctions than those of all other Fortune 500 companies combined.''? Here’s the link from which this bit of information was gleaned.
I am going to see if they are in anyway, shape, or form connected to The Caryle Group. Blessed Be! Raven
I discovered this website
whilst surfing. I think it is an interesting one so I am putting a link here. I was going to give you some information on the election fraud, but this will have to suffice for the time being. I think this will send you running to the search engines and that is the point of this exercise. Enjoy.
Listened to General Wesley Clark on the new Bill Maher show the other night, and I think he would make an excellent President. So does Michael Moore, and of course, Bill Maher does, too. At least Clark would be intelligent—a word Bush probably can’t even spell!
Let’s give a big “HURRAH” to the inhabitants of NYC (New York City) for showing how humane and compassionate they are under a crisis. This time it was “lights out”—inconvenient, but no catastrophe though the skeptic in me thinks it may have been more than just a ‘fire’. Anyway, raves to NYC for rising to the occasion!!!
THE CARLYLE GROUP IS BEHIND EVERYTHING!!!
Trust me on this one…
Now all we have to do is find out who/what is behind them!!! Use the Search Engines on the Internet.
See where it leads you then report back to me.
Word to the wise—watch your back.
"Pentagon: Saddam sons likely killed
Official: 'Reasonably certain' Uday and Qusay killed in raid"
Doesn't it just piss you off to know that they no doubt could have gotten these two at anytime and were holding out for need? In other words, I'm sure Abo (our name for Bush---short for Abomination) and his tribe were just waiting to "play this Ace" when they needed to cover up some wrong doing such as the 9-11 investigations, congressional hearings about why he lied about the intelligence reports, and more that are currently taking place, and the latest unrest at home over the war in Iraq. I'm quite certain that they know, as we speak, EXACTLY were Saddam is and are going to "get" him right before the 2004 Election. Meanwhile, Americans’ blood once again flows and they die in a foreign land. Remember, Bush did this “on his own” so Americans are the only ones picking up the tab. It is costing American taxpayers over a BILLION DOLLARS A WEEK to finance his war in Iraq. Don’t forget, he also has wars going on against Afghanistan and Terrorism, and he will probably get us involved in Liberia as well as North Korea (by adding more troops to South Korea). Personally, I believe we should just pull out of Asia and let Japan “fix” it. We can do everything we need to do there covertly. IMHOP, the Bushes (the whole lot of them) are the biggest terrorists of all! I just think the whole lot of them (Abo and tribe) ought to be impeached and imprisoned! Oh, and speaking of terrorist, why don’t we hear much about “what’s his name” oh yeah, Osama bin Laden anymore?…Is it because President Bush is friends with Osama’s family and is afraid the truth will out if we take him “dead or alive”? What the hell is wrong with the American people? To quote Tommy Lee Jones in Men In Black I, "God, we are a gullible breed." (referring to humans) Okay, not all of them. Some are obviously asking pertinent questions or Abo and tribe would not have "played this Ace", but it appears that most folks don't seem to give a damn. I'll do my part and play with my potions after I get through with these damnable shipping boxes.
Back to my shipping boxes...
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen should change her name to "Woman with Head In Sand Like Ostrich"!!! (Her own is too difficult to remember. I had to look it up.) What the heck is wrong with her? Rep. Wexler and you tried to explain to her that President Bush has basically broken the law, but she just doesn't get it. People such as herself are in total denial. Well, what goes around comes around. Bush and his tribe will get theirs no matter how much people like Ros-Lehtinen try to argue their nonsense. Thank goodness for people like you, Rep. Wexler, Carville, et al. In the end, we Witches are the ones who have to 'fix' everything. We have done it many times before. God(s) willing, we will do it yet again.
A friend sent me the following this morning. I thought it was something that needed to be shared with my guests. I have to say that I can’t help but agree with it because it is all true. As most of you know, we have been overseas for the last four years. I cannot believe the number of bankruptcies listed in the newspapers. It staggers the imagination!

Let’s have a great big “Hurray” for David Letterman!!! He is championing Martha Stewart. Maybe she wasn’t too nice sometimes and annoyed a few people, but who hasn’t? [Martha, darling…You should have franchised yourself all over the country! Women everywhere would be in revolt! And those dunderheads wouldn’t be getting away with their abominable behavior towards you.]
I think the Attorney General of NY is on a Witch hunt, and guess what? He’s acting like Cardinal Richelieu! Someone should investigate his religious affiliations because maybe he really IS on a Witch hunt. I have always felt that Martha is a closet Witch, or at the very least “Earth Mother”, or the hearth Goddess. She’s like a domestic Goddess for the hearth and home for gods’ sakes. What irks me the most is that I don’t think the “authorities” would have bothered if she had been young and non-threatening. No kidding!!! I’m quite serious! Let’s face it; nothing has changed in all these centuries. We still have our persecutors and our knights in shining armor. I always knew David Letterman was a knight in shining armor, and now he’s proved it!!! You go guy!!! It’s a ‘Good thing’ for Martha that he is.
Read the book, Crone by Barbara Walker. It will explain everything about Martha’s case and why those in ‘power’ want to ‘get’ her.
Well, I have about had it with our moving company. After they nearly crippled me through their own negligence, now they are threatening me with a VERY limited time in which to prepare my claim for missing and damaged items in THREE shipments that have been delivered (air, sea, storage). I need at the very least six months. They want to give me 90 days!!! And don’t you love it?---They want you to present receipts that are decades old for items that went “missing” or are broken. Many items failed to appear in our move from South Africa. One of the items was a Sentry safe which contained a lot our important receipts. I don’t think that is fair to ask people to present ancient receipts for items that are on the packing lists. They have either arrived or not arrived. If they haven’t arrived, or have arrived damaged, then the moving company should be liable, especially when the client has provided insurance. Oh, and forget it if the item happened to be a wedding gift or gift given to you by a friend or relative decades ago. If you don’t have a receipt, they won’t pony up. All told, I have probably had somewhere in the neighborhood of 1200 boxes to check and they ALL need to be checked because so many were mis-marked by the moving company!!! ---yet ANOTHER reason why I should be given more time to prepare my claim. At one point, we were even threatened.
Did anyone notice the announcement by the federal government that new rules are going to be implemented against moving companies? Oh, yes… and that’s JUST the beginning. I wonder if they have any idea of what “Rue the day” actually means? What were they thinking???
Stay tuned for this continuing saga. You’ll be glad you did. Wait until I tell you about the hole in the container that they KNEW was there before they shipped it overseas. Yep, lots of cookbooks, etc. were damaged. Trust me, you will surely want to tune in later for my woeful story. I'll have pictures, too. There’s a story here to tell. I hope it will save you from a similar experience!!! Forewarned is forearmed…
I LOVE the Osbournes!!! What hilarity!!! They really ARE endearing people. This show gives me great laughs. I highly recommend it to one and all. I can’t wait to see Sharon Osbourne’s show premiering on 15 August, 2003.
