Rant from the Past

Remember a long time ago when we seen something bad happen to someone we would say, Hey, be careful it could happen to you. Well, the way things are going these days we say, its going to happen to you sooner or later even if you are careful. I say, try not to become collateral damage. I realize that human behavior has been questionable for thousand years and people have been wondering why people do what they do since the beginning of time. Things have escalated in the past few years here in America and its my opinion that most of what is going on in this country these days is because of suppressed anger, fear and rage. None of us is bullet proof to the craziness and insanity going on in the world today...We have come to the point here in the United States depending where you live that its too dangerous to venture outside. I realize it has always been somewhat like this, more or less but it seems like its much worse now. Ask yourself a few questions. Do you really know who your neighbors are? Do you trust them? Are you sure? Would you let them baby sit your 13 year old daughter or give them the key to your house to watch while you go on vacation? I'll bet you are thinking about that? Has your home ever been invaded or broken into. Watch out there country dwellers you are on the list now. You can spend a small fortune for that security system but you are not untouchable anymore. I have never heard of that happening till a few years ago. Even you out there in the country in your 5 Million dollar home. You are not safe. Try and buy a hand gun to protect yourself. They are even taking that away from you too. Remember when you could leave in the morning and not lock your door? I do....
Has there ever been a suicide in your family? No, but I'll bet you know someone who has? Has divorce hit your family? Your kids or nieces and nephews? Do you smoke cigarettes? Could you stop if you wanted to?... Right, try it.. How about Alcoholism or Drug Addiction? Do you really know what your son or daughter would do to get the drink or drug he or she needs when craving it? Do you have an Alcoholic or Drug addict in your family? Did you know that alcoholism is an inherited disease?... Maybe it would it would be a good idea to read about addiction and learn. Have you been touched by those diseases yet...Notice I said yet...Have you felt the misery of a death by car accident on the highways these days or by the horrendous weather we are having? Has a family member or even a friend ever been raped or murdered? How about losing your job or your home? Have you ever had your car repossessed? Have you ever been watched so much you are starting to get paranoid? Your cell phone is really a hand held computer that will tell everyone everything. Are you or your kids addicted to your phone. Do you go back and get it if you forget it at home? Could you go a day without it? I did...Try that. Those cards the Supermarket uses. The ones you scan to buy something. Right, even they know what you are doing all the time. Ever wonder why you need a plastic card to buy almost anything? Even the banks know if and when you pay your bills.
How about your kids. Have they left the family nest to go out in the world only to come back to live with you again? Are they saving for their future and retirement? Hell, are you saving for your future and retirement? The way things are going now you won't be able to retire until you are 70. That's only if Social Security has any money left. Will you be healthy enough to work until you are 70?..... 27% of Americans have no savings for that rainy day....All those wonderful politicians you voted for that are spending millions to get elected or reelected are robbing you blind. Ask them about their retirement and health care. Don't believe me? Just wait, you will see!
Remember when you knew the cop on the beat by his first name? The police today are more Military than anything else. They all look alike with their shaved heads, bullet proof vests and combat fatigues. They carry automatic weapons like in a the army. Police departments of today now have hazmat teams and bomb squads. You haven't lived until you have been evacuated from a building because of a bomb threat or a mysterious white powder scare. Kids are being shot in schools everyday somewhere in this country. And no its not just the ghettos. It can happen to you...(((Oh, can I still say ghettos?))) Think about that? Have your children been in a locked down school because of a white powder, gun or bomb scare? Its happening more and more. You are being scrutinized, searched, listened too and watched everywhere you go. From the highways and stores to Facebook and Google. Yes, you are...and there isn't a Blessed thing you or I can do about it.
You and your kids are being programmed by "Nintendo" games or while you are watching those horrible reality shows on TV, which are not real by the way. What about the the TV and movie violence? It is the worst I have ever seen. Because of the movies and TV, promiscuity is normal and modesty is nonexistent? There is nothing left to the imagination. Remember, young minds without supervision are the future copycats and you know what means. They actually need someone to tell them difference between right and wrong...As the years, months and days go by in this computer world the odds of something I just described happening to you is rapidly increasing. So if you think you were careful before, brother you haven't seen anything yet....All because of money...The Bastards out there will do anything to steal or sell you something. Nothing else matters....They don't care about anything else....

"The Walmart Generation" II

I wrote this in 2010 ... I was telling someone yesterday about this young woman. We were discussing how many ways the government and the advertising agency's watch us and keep track of us. Now or very soon there will be Drone aircraft along with the satellite cameras, security cameras and bar codes. In a past post I mentioned human clones. You could say they are part of the Walmart generation...I think I posted this here in the past. This is the edited version but its worth another read... At least I think it is...

I went to Walmart for some things and when I went to pay, I met “Cashier Amy“. I said, Hi cashier Amy, how are you? She replied with a cute smile, “I’m fine sir but I’m not a cashier. Its at this point I looked at her name tag again and wondered why it said, “Hi, my name is Amy” and right under that, the word cashier written in black letters on a yellow background and after all she was on the cash register. Honest, I couldn't resist here so I put on my best smile and asked her... I said, why does it say cashier on your name tag? She replied, “I don’t work in the front anymore I work in the back and I just haven’t taken it off the thing yet. I'm just filling in here right now”, she said looking and pointing at the badge. “Oh, then with a straight face I said, How are the bosses here going to know what you do?” “Are you going to have the tattoo bar code on your neck or on the inside of your arm? Wait a minute. Now, you probably realize I’m kidding, right? I am saying this to her and I look very serious and really trying not to smile…Meanwhile this kid is serious when she replies, “I not going to let them put any tattoos on me“, and in the next breath says, “Piercing I don’t mind but not tattoos“. I said, as serious as I could, “You do know that sooner or later that’s going to happen! Walmart always wants to know where its employees are and what they are doing”. Then at this point I said, “Sooner or later they will tell you to do that“. Its either that or you won’t have a job. She seriously agreed and I noticed the line was getting longer. It didn't matter because I had to leave before I started laughing. I was kidding with her but she actually thought I was serious.
I believe that in the direction the country is going now that this will happen in the future.…..I said the other day that there so many people in this country we don’t know who are enemies are. The only solution is a neat little bar code tattoo or a GPS implant somewhere on your body. They have them on your car, dogs and cats why not on humans? It just makes sense. Cashier Amy wasn’t shocked and she actually thought I was serious. To her the idea was just one of those things that will happen sooner or later and acceptable……How do you know there wasn't some kind tracking device implanted in your body like if you born, say after 1980? Do you really know if there is some kind of locator on your body right now? A microscopic pin point that can hear and find you. Wait, there is and do you know what its called?....... Its called a cell phone…..Wait again, the reason the Government doesn’t care how many people there are in this country is… What’s the first thing they buy when they get to this country? A cell phone…Wow…. I could be on to something……Hmmmm?

Answer for question 4590.

What's your favorite snack, and why do you love it so much? Do you have it all the time, or do you save it for special occasions? If you could magically bring one new snack item into existence that doesn't exist now, what would it be?
I like peanuts, rye chips and crunchy cheese curls all mixed together. I allow myself to have a little at night. Not too much because of the salt. I'm on a salt free diet except for that.. I just started to have some ice cream. Snacks run in cycles.. Change is in the future. I'm a vegetarian so I'm very careful with my diet. My numbers and blood pressure are good for my age.. I'm very careful..
