Gated Silliness

A couple of nights ago there was a very scary fire in our gated community. Don't start on me about living in a gated community. It seemed like a good idea at the time when we bought the place in Florida. We came from rural/suburban mid Hudson New York. We were tired of taking care of all that property. We were retiring. We wanted a place where somebody else took care of everything. The gates were just something that came along with the other stuff we actually wanted. The gates are a pain in the ass. Especially when there is a fire. Our "Association" hasn't figured that out yet.


car out
The comical part, before I tell you about the fire, is that although we have gates. We do not have walls. The pool guys used to drive around the gates if they are too early. There is a construction gate that is open all day too. The construction guys have been known to steal truck loads of major appliances before new homeowners can move in. In the evening, the pizza delivery guys all seem to have the codes to the gates. But the police and Fire and ambulance guys do not. There is a special key socket for them but they don't have the keys, apparently. And the gates work very erratically. Sometimes staying open when they should close and refusing to open when homeowners use their clickers or codes. It's a comic situation. Unless there's a fire or a heart attack. Or, I guess, a hostage situation.


car in
My friend J was tinkering on his truck in his garage and it caught fire. I didn't ask him how that happened. It just did. His wife called 911 and had to drive down to the gate to let the fire trucks in with her clicker. The gate closed behind the first trucks. And refused to open again for the police, the ambulance and the various backups. So they just went away.


In the meantime J pushed the truck, which was by now a fireball, out of the garage. It was quite spectacular. J flew choppers in Nam and his crew always called him Bulletproof. He never took a hit while those around him collected lead routinely. His luck has not run out, I'm happy to report. He once set a vintage Corvette on fire too. He's a hard drinking, chain-smoking guy who is probably going to defy death by all the things you would expect to catch up with him. Just that kind of guy.

But the rest of my neighbors are probably not as lucky. They think they bought themselves security in a gated (but not walled) community. So far, they've bought themselves protection against the protectors but not against actual criminals who wouldn't be stopped by a gate or a wall if they had a mind to breach either. Yup, I'm living in a comic book.



Gates Without Walls
Comic books are fun unless you live in one
Atomic crooks with guns, but your safe outside the page
All manner of bizarre stunts causing laughs and grunts
But when it's real, you're stuck inside your cage

Gates without walls keep the good guys out
And only your fear can keep you in
Gates without walls, you're just as wise without
With Gates without walls, you can't win

Current Price $0.036
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities?
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain?s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine?s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company?s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor?s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
GO IFLH!

Grrrrr I hate those spam commentors! They are bloodying up my site too!

Anyhow, comical but scary! Wow! There are many reasons I would never live in a gated community, but I think you just hit reason number one on the head there! LOL

Good thing the criminals can still get in though, wouldn't want to show any sort of favoritism there! LMAO

Better yet, good to know everyone is ok. I loved the lyrics too!
