hot gay men in the sunshine…
hey, a little side note:
here’s a political message regarding fake taxes excised upon us as MODERN CORPORATE self-protection bully/savior complex fkery:
soda tax? GROCERY TAX?
fake TAX for a tiered price restructuring of all commodities?
can you say REFRIGERATION TAX is next, people!!!!
than gas and transit fees.
can you do the math?
fking soda taxes for insurance companies and "re-education" programs? bullsht.
go back to business school cuz that’s not how the world works.
and running IT AGAIN with a NEW name because it couldn’t pass before? the first one put the blame on the distributor, the new version blames the store. same technique of foisting blame off the user and the maker.
stupid old school grammar games.
protecting people who can’t protect themselves from… soda?
sickening, constant, scheming liars.
if you’re not on team BEVERAGE AND FOOD DISTRIBUTION and can’t see how these issues massively benefit price hikes to be levied against the basic citizenry, i’m sorry.
that makes most of what you think you think you know kind or irrelevant.
you should do some studies.
but if you are among those who just don’t want fat, unhealthy, pharmadrug-addicted sloths on your money ticket… be real.
address the real problem.
say that. and make that happen.
this isn’t about that. this isn’t what this fake tax will aid, help or abet.
this isn’t freedom to drink soda without paying more. or the loss of that freedom.
hly crap, as if the presidential shampaign isn’t enough of a
toilet tank of miscreants now we have the PRICE TIERED CORPORATE WORLD BULLIES LEVYING A FAKE TAX?!?!?
you do realize they are BOTH SIDES OF THIS BILL??!?
no matter how you vote they win, even if they have to run this shampaign AGAIN.
trust me, this is NOT just another sin tax sucrose scam scare tactic from the UPPER CORPORATE ELITE.
this is a really good little power wedge for RADICAL business revune hikes and increases across the board.
that’s the end goal as i’ll explain down below…
really>food wars are afoot.
have been afoot.
ALL your food is trying to be more expensive.
this means more middle people trying to skim fees and services from the overbuildup of stolen money from your pocketbook.
this isn’t a TAX, it’s a first lynch pin scheme designed to get ignorant people to side with something they are against — overweight and unhealthy people draining the social system’s wealth pool.
so be honest.
that’s what you’re really mad about.
you’re not mad at the corporations who sell drugs that make people fatter and sadder and less healthy.
so remember this.
if WALMART gets what it wants, you’ll keep letting this be put on the ballot under different names and games.
WALMART isn’t going to stop because you said no.
of all people, they benefit the most using TIERED-PRICING.
we have allowed stores to "have sales", "do discounts", "start clubs". it’s on us.
we PUT THE GAMING in our dinner table acquisitions.
it’s on us.
so remember, when WALMART is selling their SODA POP for 89 cents a liter and everywhere else is forced to sell the exact same luxury product for 6$, BUT BOTH STORES sell all the other commodities at EXACTLY the same price, you can do the math on why someone would choose to do ALL their shopping at WALMART.
and that, my friend, is not a SODA TAX.
it’s NOT a grocery tax.
IT’S BLATANT FKING HIJACKERY.
both sides of the SHAMPAGIN are the beverage industry and their walmart buddies.
either way you vote, they win.
stupid fking hijackery.
brilliant, though, too.
kudos to the beverage corps
they know they can jack their world wide prices if san francisco is as stupid as nyc was…
Home sweet home –

Copper Masonic lantern door with lodge room piercings.
Seven points of Indented Skirting at the bottom, each made using two long slits and one small punched hole, represent the first 100 years of the lodge. The seven points at the top represent the next 100 years. From the outside point there are five holes beside three holes and then three single holes.
On either side are columns which are joined at the top with a Keystone. The columns are separated into three sections. The bottom is made with three holes, the second is made with five holes and the third top section is made with seven holes.
Under the Keystone is the Eye of God with a large hole in the centre surrounded by eight smaller holes, which total nine holes. There are seven long slits over the eye and five underneath. Under the Keystone are three holes.
Inside the letter ‘G’ are three sets of seven small holes.
There are three vertical lines made with two long slits to represent three candles with a single punched hole to represent the flame of the candle.
To their right is a vertical line made from four long slits to represent a wand in its post hole. There are 7 small holes which connect th the top of the wand representing a ray of light.
Above that is a ray of light made with 5 holes. There are 5 mirrored holes on the other side representing another ray of light.
In the centre are tho slits with one small hole to represent a Masonic kneeling stool. Above that are three horizontal slits to represent the top of the Masonic Altar. Above that is one small hole between two horizontal slits to represent the Volume of the Sacred Law.
The entire image is created with repetitive punches of 3, 5, 7 and 9 which are significant in Masonry. The main image is comprised using 100 strikes, each one to represent one year of the lodge’s existence.
Barn lanterns were often hung in the four corners of a barn to allow farmers to work safely without fear of burning down a wooden building filled with straw and other combustibles. The cuts point outwards so no wind, even a very strong wind could not blow out the flame. If a lantern is dropped, the interior pressure created snuffs the candle flame. In Ontario in the 1800’s there was a law which only allowed these types of lanterns to be used. Lanterns with glass sides shattered relatively easily which meant a much greater fire hazard.
When walking on paths and across fields it was colon for farmers and their family members to carry one of these lanterns, not to guide their way because they didn’t produce sufficient illumination, but to allow other family and friends to watch their progress fron afar to ensure their safety.
The cone on the top of the lantern has another interesting set of piercings which I designed to honour Masonic tradition and to release the heat from the candle. Beeswax candles work best. Modern paraffin candles sag and melt quickly because if the interior build up of heat.
The copper used to make this and it’s twin lantern is of such good quality that it will oxidize but it will not turn green like the copper used on church roofs.
The only wood that the copper, tin or bronze can be used as as base when striking is hard maple. Piercing is a real art requiring much practice. It’s quite east to strike this copper too hard which would result in an unrepairable tear in the copper. The image to be cut and pierced must be etched in mirror image.
I was lucky enough that Master Tinsmith, John Maguire and his seven year apprentice were able to complete these projects before they left Black Creek Pioneer Village. John learned his trade as a young man in England. His work was top secret as he worked in production, under extreme time pressure, re skinning the bodies of the WW II bombers which had been shot up.
Inside the lantern was soldered a copper Canadian penny of the year that the lodge celebrated its 109th. Birthday as well as an American penny in which someone had impressed a Square and Compasses.
Ontario Fire Marshalls have approved these lanterns as safe, even in old Masonic Temples. This lantern was inspired by an old Masonic barn lantern at Heritage Lodge No. 730 which is above the Tinsmith Shop at Black Creek Poineer Village in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
A person could literally have this pattern branded using one of these hot lanterns if it were to be pressed on a person’s back. Of course it would be a mirror image. It would be interesting to see if the desifpgn could be impressed into a sheet of paper or even transferred using pastels. On the other side of the lantern is the logo of University Masonic Lodge No. 496 in Toronto. A tattoo would be painful enough.
