Sriracha - Follow Up

Thu, Apr 17, 2014 - 2:22am

I only have time for a quick one. This is a follow up to my earlier report that meddling local government workers tried to shut down one of my beloved condiment makers, Huy Fong foods, which manufactures Sriracha hot sauce.

The story is simple: after citizen complaints of strong odors, local govt thugs filed a court action seeking an immediate shut down of the business. The judge refused the immediate, emergency order, but instead some interim orders and set the matter for a trial later this year.

The story now gets better. Seems that other more business friendly states took notice, and descended upon the business owner, soliciting him to move the business to their states. Get this: even some LOCAL cities tried to get the business to move to another city nearby! Remarkable.

The story is here:

So this is what it has come to. Instead of encouraging NEW business development through sensible, business friendly laws and tax policies, government officials try to lure EXISTING businesses away from their current locales. Encouraging new business growth is a revenue builder no matter how one looks at it, but luring a business away to a new place is a job killer for the loser. Politicians are just so shallow, petty, and dumb, that nothing surprises me any more.

I hope that Huy Fong moves and takes all its jobs and tax revenue with it. God bless you, Texas, keep it up. I'll be moving there in a few years . . .

@ SSJ re: Gold thread

There are also historical examples of refugees extruding gold into thread and sewing/weaving these threads into the clothing they wore as they fled.

gold and refugees

Refugees can be from any and many cultures and ethnic groups.

I have met people who were fleeing dictatorships and tyrannies that were killing their particular ethnic group.

During prior wars, people fleeing the disaster zone could certainly use gold coinage to transfer monetary wealth. One of the biggest examples would be German and Polish people leaving their nation of origin prior to 1936. Another example are SE Asians leaving prior to or during the wars in the 1960's and 1970's.

I have certainly heard of people fleeing a zone with clothing where a button is sewen into the clothing which is a button made of gold internally wrapped by thread to cover the internal nature of the button.

Another is a heavy coat with the gold coin in the bottom hem or along the front within the heavy fabric to help with the front of the coat.

A question.....

I know it's late on this thread but a question I've been wanting to ask all the pro gun groups especially the NRA....did you get your moneys worth in Harry Reid? Still think that?

@Ancient Money

No, Cal Lawyer is NOT a female. Here is a representative picture of me just outside of court:

​Of course, that is a joke. That could have been me, but I wizened-up and started flying straight, became a decent human being, despite being a lawyer, and began my long, slow education here at the watchtower.

Now look at me:

Ha ha. Enjoy the weekend everyone!

You Know of Whom I Speak Of

@GL, DJ, and Fred

In my experience and historical knowledge, a handful of non-practicing, wealthy and powerful masqueraders have never had a problem contributing to the killing of millions of their weaker brethren to increase their wealth and power.

Of course I'm referring to Americans.

PS. Brilliant, Fix.

@ Jews & Gold

Dr. Jerome, I never heard gold discussed much among the Jews and their families I knew growing up in NYC. Likewise, the Jews I know now don't seem to have an interest in stacking that's any different from the population at large. It would be interesting, however, to know what percentage of the people I've bought gold from are Jewish. But, as you know, stackers are notorious for wanting to keep their deals anonymous. :-)

Jews & gold

Perhaps some of our more knowledgeable members will chime in. I had a Jewish friend some years ago who told me his family had a tradition of keeping 1/3 of their wealth in physical gold. The reason was so that when a government begins leaning on them, like may be happening in Ukraine, at a moments notice, they could grab their gold and leave the country with enough to start over somewhere else. Seemed like an understandable but unnecessary tradition to me at the time (1995), but now is sounding very wise. I hope the Ukrainian Jewish community still practices such traditions.

"Never Again" and "The President Is Weak"

Watch very carefully over the next few weeks for these catch phrases coming out of the MSM through political pundits regarding the now emerging story in the Ukraine of ordering all Jewish Citizens to register or face deportment and also pay a feee to register.

1st we don't know exactly what has happened or who is behind it but Kerry is already chiming in with harsh words. Beyond what is happening, depending if this story grows some legs, the issue is how US Gub will use the story. Is it the Nazi anti-zionist banker theme and the only resolution is to wipe out all the Jews? Or some carefully crafted scheme to engender some good ole war fever in the west? Aka false flag preparation

Watch out for political pundits yelling "never again" and calling the President weak. That gets the bipartisan bickering into high gear and is usually sufficient to get the sheeple into a tizzy. Its how you create war fever. Oh, he ain't a man sctick.

In a chilling echo of the Holocaust, Jews are 'ordered to register and list property' in east Ukraine after pro-Russian militants take over government buildings

  • U.S. condemns leaflets urging Jews in east Ukraine to 'register'
  • Secretary of State John Kerry calls pamphlet found in Donetsk 'grotesque'
  • Jews also reportedly asked to register lists of their own property
