"From 2011"

Lets face it. Its like we are in sort of a war… All of us go around gleefully ignoring what is happening around us pretending that we are in a bubble. We go out each day never really knowing if you are going to come home safe. 10 or 15 years ago you would leave in morning saying, “See you tonight Hun” and never really think about it because it felt like it was going to happen. Hey, it was a sure thing. Now, in 2011 the chances of coming home are less than were 10 years ago. The store you go into might be the last store you ever stop in. The cars that crash on the highway are going so fast they disintegrate into unrecognizable pieces. The office or shop you work in could be the last place you ever go. Do you trust the person in the next room, the customer that just walked in, the guy that sits next to you. Everywhere you go you see strangers speaking a foreign language. I don’t understand what they are saying. Today I feel suspicious of the people around me. That, it can’t happen to me attitude isn't there anymore. Are they talking about me or planning something? A Congress woman was shot in the head and a Federal judge killed, plus others were killed in the melee yesterday. I’ve been on Twitter for the past few weeks reading and reporting on the insanity in this country by way of links and I’ll tell you its really bad out there. Its just not safe anymore. The anger is a silent and deadly. Its contagious and dangerous. You can actually see it and feel it. Anywhere you go, you don’t know if someone has a gun or a bomb. Remember a few years ago when a post office worker shot and killed his fellow workers. The phrase, ‘Dude, don’t go postal on me” was born. Well, its not funny anymore and its happening everywhere now. It could be the person standing next to you on the bus or in a subway or in a plane. It could be in that coffee shop or Super Market you go to in the morning. It doesn’t matter what State you are in its happening everywhere. It could be your neighbor. Its just not safe anymore. If it happens to you, maybe you will never know and probably won’t hear the shots. Although its safe to say it will be recorded and shown on the news or U Tube at a later date… Keith Olbermann is right, its domestic terrorism and its got to stop. I think its too late. Some really tough changes have to be made….

"Land Lines are Old School"

From November 2, 2014

I no longer have a land line.. I have a cell phone with a call block...

The worst enemy of phone solicitation are phones with call block. The second worst enemy is people that know how to use it.
Stop phone solicitation. The people that do this job are trained to make you feel bad so you will send a donation or buy something. They focus on Seniors, young people and low income people. Remember the freedom of information act and the way they watch you. Your trusted phone servers sell your number to the scammers. They call them servers now not company’s… Did you know that every time you scan that store card you carry to get that so-called discount. That bar code on the back has all your information…They know who you are, where you live, where you go and what you do. If you give your credit number to someone on the phone will your credit card be safe? Never give them any numbers or buy anything over the phone. Never pay for anything on that auto payment plan.
Please Note! If you decide to get a new phone or just feel like replacing your old one because of those annoying calls. Go on the internet or get a friend to help you find the model number of one and make sure it has the call block feature. These days it will be on the box or in the feature section of the manual. Yes, it may cost a little more but its worth it not to have listen to these morons try to scam you out of your life savings. No matter what they say or how nice their voice sounds, they lie to you, they don’t care about you. When buying your phone from one of those workers in the electronic dept. at your local Wally Land most don’t have a clue about what their talking about so just don’t buy anything. Make them show you where it says, this phone has the “CALL BLOCK” feature. I’ve have one for years and when a unwanted call comes in, it rings once then shuts off. (Hangs up) The call has been blocked. Too block a call you save the number and it will say on the screen, delete or call block. Click on Call block and its done so when they call again and they will, it will block the call from that number. The sophisticated scammer will have two or three numbers. Block them all! They will do anything to catch at your weakest moment…Good Luck and I mean that.. The more we do to keep this scum at bay the better we will feel...

"Brad Pitt Line"

Line from the 1999 movie "Fight Club". "Today we have two belief systems. To deliberately believe in lies while knowing they are false. The examples of this in every day life…. How I need to be pretty to be happy. I need surgery to be pretty. I need to be thin, famous, fashionable. Our young men today are being told that woman are whores, bitches and they are things to be screwed. Beaten, shit on and shamed. This is a marketing holocaust. Twenty-four hours a day for the rest of our lives the powers that be are hard a work dumbing us to death. So to defend ourselves and fight against assimilating this dullness into our thought processes we must learn to read to stimulate our own imaginations to cultivate our own consciousness, our own belief system's. We all need these skills to defend, to preserve our own minds”.
