(PORTRAIT OF FORMER GOVERNOR OF OREGON)
“WELL,”said Carolyn,”that was a HUGE MEETING last night!!We must have had everyone living on River Road!!Do our attorneys know they’re representing so many people?” “I am negligent of my duties,” I answered,”they should have picked a better member for secretary.” “You are the only one with dictate – ware”,She replied.”You got it,no one else wants all this complex paper work,” “Sigh–ok, what about the attorneys now??” “We got good attorneys who specialize in class-action suits, from California,” she said,”But do you have the complete list of the membership?”
“a whole lot of extra people, on River Road, joined last night.. I have the list but it’s really long. It’ll take me a while to even get all the new members on the list I have on the computer. But if they decide to run the EMX bus line down River road, they certainly will have a lot of neighbors suing the hell out of them for millions of bucks.if this thing is successful it will bankrupt Eugene, because they’ll have to pay out the settlement money, and it will be really big.” “What about all the destruction of the sidewalks on both sides, removing all the trees, and even DESTROYING a lot of the houses and structures right next to the road? How much do they really think it’s worth?it’s got to be too big even for the County and LTD bus department, and Eugene combined.”
I thought about that a minute.”If the idiots in City Hall want 3 big-wig California attorneys specializing in class-action suits, to suck out all their dough,why is it our fault?They wanta run the fuckin EMX BUS down to junction city!!I have several hundred–no, a couple thousand–residents of the road,who are so angry,they want the city of Eugene dismantled!!–the govt, eliminated–by taking all their money,and sucking out funds of the county too!!Eugene and Lane county will be more broke than Douglass county is–no libraries-it’ll probably have to SELL THE EUGENE PUBLIC LIBRARY BUILDING.—
“THESE ATTORNEYS come very recommended–they clean out huge corporations, whole countys or city govts, when they win!!–We’re likely gonna bust their budget here.The cost alone, going to the attorneys will be big,but the members will get recompensed well.They could sell their homes,or just have enough dough to move away,.buy a new house.–some where else.–which will be necessary, cause the City will physically destroy many homes AND BUSINESSES on River Road.–with the EMX BUS LINE. ” i paused.”I don’t feel sorry for Eugene govt. at all. They knew what they were doing.”
I had been elected to be secretary of the”RIVER ROAD NEIGHBORS AGAINST THE EMX BUS”, because since Eugene and the planning dept. had decided to filch more money, in an effort to destroy what was left of River Road, by putting the EMX BUS LINE on,to Junction City, and there would be whole destroyed buildings, homes,properties, up and down the road.–for which they would maybe shell out a good ways towards one of the biggest class-action suits in Oregon.–up towards a billion. I was flabbergasted.–But it was necessary.
“Hey,” I told Carolyn, looking at my new list,”We have disabled neighbors living right on River Road–do you know the LAWS concerning destroying the living places of the disabled?” “No, Carolyn replied,”I don’t.” “It is a tricky set of laws–” I replied,looking it up,”It concerns eviction of the disabled to be a major violation of state law–maybe federal too.”
“How does that make a difference?” “They may be breaking fed. laws, by destroying homes on River Road, of the disabled–of which we have several new members–and that means, the feds. come to Oregon, and get involved.” “Is it like–uh–NAACP laws? ” “I need to ask the attorneys. UGH, WHAT A JOB!!I need a bigger salary!!” “The organization’s not paying you.” “That’s what I mean,” I explained.”I need one of our ladies to bake me a cake–I need cake!!–preferably chocolate!! God knows, I need chocolate for this job!” “You’re on a diet.”
“Maybe there’s a “cake-weight-loss diet out there somewhere.”–I hope.
“Does the transportation planning manager, Rob Inerfeld know he’s going to get sued separately,too?And probably the Lane County Board of Commissioners?” “No,” I said, pulling up that screen;”Exciting, isn’t it?” “WHERE does the City and County think they’ll get $83 million dollars,for their transportation plan?” “Maybe the extra money left after they fill all the potholes.” –“Oh, yeah, those last potholes got fixed so badly,you can’t driver over em now!!” “Mmmm” that’s not my real worry.”I said,frowning.
“What’s that,” asked Carolyn, rubbing her feet.”It’s those guys who wanted to join the organization,who showed up last night,”I replied,”They were kinda crazy and real vicious looking?The ones who want to blow up Beltline?–And blow up the old or new City Hall,and the planning dept.–those crazy guys–” “We didn’t let them become members.”
“I know, but they got real pissed,and said,”we’ll do it ourselves!”–and left.” “They also said,” replied Carolyn.”they were going to blow up the freeway,but its just talk. No one blows up freeways any more.That’s an urban legend.” “So they live some where on River Road?” “They live around here,further down; a bunch a guys who mostly got outta prison. I don’t know them–don’t take em seriously.”
“Why not?One of em was saying,he was in for a murder rap?” “Oregon lets em out on probation–” “That’s what I’m afraid of!!” “But those guys are all talk!!Hot air!!I used to know idiots like that,naah!!” “Even the guy who threatened to blow up the planning dept. himself? And “get that Rob Inerfeld?” “Sandramina, those hippie-idiots–” “Ex-convicts!!–not hippies!!” “–they’ll just move,go off campus( wasn’t one a UO student?”)–and the police can’t keep track of all the thieves here”.
“I need cake!!” I finished.”I’m exhausted! This whole huge transportation mess is terrible!!Didn’t they say,”auto-matic-driving-cars” will be operating on River Road,too?Is that even safe?’ Carolyn looked bad off; too.she was still moving into her new house–just about–almost–to go on a very strict weight loss diet–along with MOI. But with all this stress, could we do it?
DAIRY QUEEN BECKONED!!! OOOOOH!!! PHANTOMS OF BLIZZARD YUMMIES HORRIBLE TO BEHOLD!–And I had just eaten a delicious,.mostly sugar,protein bar,organic and sweet! I probably blew several 1000 calories!!Who says organic has to taste lousy?(especially since i got it free.)”THAT was my dinner,”I said,closing the computer up;”I won’t eat anything until tomarow!” “Especially since the freeway to Win-Co might be blown up before we go shopping again,” frowned Carolyn”How about we just get a quart of scotch?”
(Sandraminadotty, in Eugene,OR,looking forward to SPRING,WHOOPIE!!–and I’m sure no one’s gonna bomb the dumb freeway–it’ll just fall apart on it’s own!! 🙂 ) 🙂
(beautiful painting taken off web)
“”I am too heavy!!!” yelled Carolyn,in a tearful face;”Its the most I have ever been!!” “Whoa,” I said, as she came in my door, tearful and anxious.”I have to successfully go on a diet!!No more kidding around!!”.
This is truly a bad deal,Carolyn has had out of control eating,of all fast food,ever since her divorce,At last she’s very worried and concerned about her health.But it’s a good sign that she is finally motivated enough to change this.Most people will not admit to a dangerous habit,and do something, until it gets very bad.
Not the first time I have seen a person who just got divorced, go out of control with a new extreme bad habit.Some kids at the divorce, start going after drugs to handle it.But a lot of adults also do this; no more home-cooked meals.Avoid every kitchen necessity, and go out to fast food places all the time.STAY IN ONE SAFER AREA OF THE HOUSE, that has no memories of the Ex. What else?
But Carolyn has cleaned,repaired,fixed up her and her Ex’s old duplex,and Carolyn is moving into it–no more memories of the EX in this place!!–She bought out his part,and now it looks great,it’s HER HOME ONLY NOW!!aND WHAT DID i DO,TO HELP?l LOOKED UP ON THE NET,””HOW TO CHAnge your behavior and get rid of a bad habit!!”and it sounds very good; there are real scientific ways to change old bad habits.I’ve had to do it myself.
I copied down all of it,on my printer, printed it out.The good thing about it,is, its very practical.IF you want to do it,keep trying.It reminds me of AA, kind of.Anyone can do this, go from step one,take your time; don’t try to change everything at once.Start easy.From Day one, write all the parts of “Know your motivations,” and “just do one small thing,one habit,at a time.” Later on, it says, “Do not give up, cause of one or two mistakes. “One Day At A Time” I would add,”You don’t have to do it all alone.” –Because I know that is true.
(to be continued)–soon!!
(A LITTLE TEA PARTY PICT I PICKED UP ONLINE)
I looked up this little picture on a drawing site, and it was made quite a few years ago; the author kind of predicted this Trump-era revolution, didn’t they?Or did they? I never hear the Republicans talk about the Tea Party; maybe they’re afraid of it.They seem to be afraid of EVERYONE. BUT .it really did happen – – the United States voters voted in Trump. Somebody in the tea party would’ve probably liked that ! So there’s a coincidence for you!
but I don’t think it was really a coincidence;; the artist was probably a mind reader or a prognosticator. Or what ever you like – – and knew it was coming eventually. But they did not show the American people as particularly ANGRY, FURIOUS, AND DESPERATE – – the way they really turned out. There is no hint of illegal immigration, and boy,there is hope and optimism and happiness but no ANGER. So I would say they actually got it wrong.
speaking of getting it wrong, I still hadn’t put a hem is a new dress I had made for summer. And I was already planning another one.. But Carolyn said to me, as she was hanging around, while I was trying to get something done, and she said “is there any way I can contact the whole Congress or write them a letter?” “Why do you want to do that?” I answered, sipping coffee. “All I can get a hold of our my own Congressman and Senators, and I hate their guts ! Bunch of Liberal Democrat assholes!” So I said in return, “why don’t we go on the computer and try to write a letter or call or e-mail all the Congress at one time, and all the Senators at one time?” She nodded. OKAY!
so I went to one of the main contact federal government website, and I phoned up the 800 number for Washington DC; to my surprise, it was not busy.. It had an operator and it was only an information line and this is what I found out.
“I can tell you who your Sen. and Congressman are,” said the very unemotional operator; “but there is no way I can send a letter or an e-mail or anything of the kind, to all of the Congress, or all of the Senate. It does not work that way..” “What do I have to do,” I asked, “do I have to come to Washington DC and address the whole Congress in person?! And the whole Senate?” “no, that would be impossible,,” said the operator coldly. “You cannot do that.” So I finally just hung up. – – Frustrated!.
somebody should tell the guy who made”Mr. Smith goes to Washington,” written a long time ago, that he will never be able to get in front of the Senate or the congress, it is impossible for an American citizen now to address them in person – – or any other way either! They are UNTOUCHABLE! You can’t get to them! You can’t write them, you can’t call them, you can’t e-mail them!
they are off your contact list! And they don’t want to hear what you have to say!the only people you can contact are the assholes in your state, who are your Congressman and Sen. And they’re not listening to you either!
since I only have liberal Democrat assholes, I really don’t want to talk to them!I’d like to YELL, SCREAM, and THROW ROCKS, and most of all,.STOP PAYING MY FUCKING TAXES!!
–BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT i WOULD DO, and still they won’t listen to a damn thing I say!and technically, that’s exactly what they do, cut me off completely. The Senate doesn’t listen to me, the Congress does not receive e-mails from me or letters or phone calls, (neither one Congress or Senate) so how the hell am I ever going to get mad at those jerks?
They don’t care if I’m angry at them!they don’t even know I exist! – – Except to pay their taxes.
the only creature who is talking to me, at this second is my cat, who is meowing because she wants more treats.Carolyn is trying to read my message to the Congress and the Senate, which of course they will never read. “I thought of a way to get a hold of the Senate and the Congress,” I said, slowly. “How?” asked Carolyn,curiously. “Those guys are completely cut off from us and they don’t ever want to hear a damn thing !” “But,” I continued even slower, “you notice that my cat meowing at me for treats again.” “Yeah, so what?” “Suppose we stopped giving the Congress and the Senate their treats, they finally start noticing WHERE all those treats come from.–”
“– since they have to have their treats, when they stopped coming, there would be this big blank – –”oh no, what happened to our treats? Why have they stopped where are they?”””It would be be the IRS,” replied Carolyn, and you’d be in a lot of trouble.” “So what, I’m already in a lot of trouble! I don’t have any money! I have to pay money for Dr.’s bills,, because my Medicare isn’t accepted by any doctors anymore!why should I pay the government taxes? I don’t have the money! and, the Senate and the Congress won’t listen to me !” “well, they’d throw you in debtors prison anyway.!”replied Carolyn, grimley.
– – “but what if MILLIONS of we seniors, stopped paying our taxes? What if millions of voters stop paying their taxes? Do you think that would get to them? Do you think they would finally notice us?”
“The Republicans never noticeD us– – not until we voted in Trump. And the Democrats didn’t even know that we existed, either, until we voted in Trump too!they were flabbergasted! Those guys didn’t know we existed either! They didn’t know we had any brains! They thought we are a vast wasteland of sheep with no brains – – who kept on paying their taxes,No Matter What!!”
yes, gentle reader, we are just a vast wasteland of cute little sheepies, with no brains.–Sheepies who will always pay taxes, no matter what anyone does to us.– – bankrupt us,take our jobs away, and everything else you could do to a really dumb voter.–and sheep. –Destroy our Medicare, so its’ no good any more– and will probably get a lot worse. (I’ve been told, the future of Medicare is going to be a lot lot worse,by experts.)
Myself,I wonder if that artist is now making another predicting piece of artwork, that in the future might show, exactly what a lot of frustrated taxpayers may do,– AND A LOT of frustrated Medicare recipiants–. , in the future besides,voting in Trump. Got any ideas, gentle reader? Protesting doesn’t reach the fed. Congress or Senate–They don’t care if Occupy occupies, they got no power!!
DO WE GOT ANY POWER, WE SENIORS?think about it. Really, sit down, talk to all your friends, talk to all the seniors you can, and start thinking about it. I have.
(Sandraminadotty, THINKING, IN EUGENE, OREGON)
“SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!”
(artwork taken off of Internet)
in the interests of all those seniors, who refused to give up their REAL APPLIANCES, and not buy any new junk made in China( or other similar invading army country, was taken over all our work and manufacturing) I called up all the sewing machine repair places, in Eugene Oregon, because Sears no longer even sells or services, its own sewing machines. Mine is a very old one all metal parts, Kenmore, but Sears practically no longer HAS KENMORE, and is giving up the ghost. – –
– – which means of course that I have to find a real actual good sewing machine repair place, just to get it cleaned! Hundred dollars to get it cleaned!
Hey Democrats, you like your cost-of-living the way it is now?
Hundred bucks, just because there’s no other reputable sewing machine repair shop in Eugene and Springfield!and Sears has gone bye-bye! I found out I cannot get a manual that’s even similar to my old machine from any sewing repair place (I will have to call all of them up and I will get the same reply; “no, go on eBay and try to buy an old manual for your machine, we don’t have it and we can’t get you parts either!”)
– –and all of us seniors used to think that”planned obsolescence” only applied to cars, in our day? Is not just planned obsolescence now it’s, “eliminate all other older appliances of any kind and replace with new junk” thanks to our manufacturing changes in this country.
so forget technology!we don’t really have technology in this country anymore! All we have are CHEAP BAD MICROSOFT PC’s! And similarly “bad software to go with it”!,and that means Windows! Thank you so much,, Bill Gates! I’m not going to stop saying this in the future years (of any that I have left.)
The heyday of America is over, and that includes our good manufacturing– – that’s what we gave up! Was it really worth it just to make China and Asia rich and Bill Gates rich and powerful? No, it was not!,NOW you cannot buy any kind of decent sewing machine or other appliance, under $1000, and maybe way up to 2000, $5000 for a sewing machine that actually is good. (And do not forget the cameras that you have to pay $600 for, just to take a decent picture!)
not only that, I will have to get a manual from somewhere, that’s similar to my old Kenmore all metal sewing machine, and learn how to use it all over again! I will have to go to ridiculous heights of senior ingenuity, just to avoid buying a crappy new machine that doesn’t work for crappy new price, for manufacturing in other countries that is increasingly crappy!–
– yes, we have warfare against foreign manufacturing that is BAD BAD BAD!and boy, was that all metal Kenmore sewing machine really good! I think I bought it during the 80s or was it the 70s?no, it was the 80s I think!or was it the 90s? I have to get the model number..
And boy did I SEW!if I need a special part, for it, I’m in trouble I will have to learn very good HAND SEWING. I’m not joking about this and at my age with all my arthritis, it probably will not work out.– – or I will have to go to a private doctor, pay cash, and start taking NARCOTICS. I’m not joking about that either! If I can’t get parts in case I need them for this I will have to go and buy an OLD SEWING MACHINE, because the senior in me is a Boomer, and I refuse is to give up on it!– – and I refuse to BUY NEW CRAP!
To end this overly long episode, in the continuing struggle of the senior Boomer, to not give up,and buy lots of shit from China, I remain yours, sincerely, Sandraminadotty, in Eugene Oregon.
( I can’t help it if they buy the whole country, ours, and start coming over by the thousands and thousands! – – Which they are already doing..– thank you, Clintons! All I can say is, “don’t give up your firearms to anybody, you might need them someday for more than just burglars in Eugene!”have fun this weekend, it looks like spring is on its way,;
– –the rain is getting a little bit warmer.)..,,
(SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!)
“HEY,” said Caroline,”Is that the crisper from yer new fridge?Lying on the kitchen floor?” “Yes,” I said;”You notice it has the hardness of wet cardboard?” She looked at it, closely.”Yeah,” she replied,” more like wet tissue paper.And that;s your NEW FRIGIDAIRE FRIDGE?”.
.I was getting used to thinking of it as a “refrigerator”, rather than a “very expensive plastic box.” – – And I use the word PLASTIC, very quaintly, it was a lot more like wet or shredded cardboard,, I mean the crispers, than any old refrigerator I have ever had.
I mean, I have had old refrigerators where the freezer is didn’t work. Okay? But until now, when I have to buy a $700 new Frigidaire, the thing is not even high enough off the floor, for me to stoop down and open the door, without wrecking my back; and forget about cleaning it! If I try to clean it, it literally starts to Wilt. Yes, it wilts.
the fact that we were cleaning it, and it literally broke into 1 million pieces, the big plastic sheet, over the crisper, because we were using hot soapy water, was the last straw. Fortunately, even though it hit Carolyn in the face, it did not hurt her, because all the tiny pieces broke up like safety glass. So they were expecting the whole piece of plastic to come apart when you washed it in water that was hot? That’s why it was structured like safety glass?
So that is the new Frigidaire refrigerator, unsafe at any speed, especially when you wash it in hot water. What are you supposed to wash it in? Are you supposed to just throw it in the garbage instead of washing it and go get a new one? Hey China! I hate your God damn products!would you please shut down your filthy black AIR, and stop making that junk? Sooner or later we’re going to stop buying it, just because we can’t afford to buy plastic junk that falls apart – – as serious real products! – Not little plastic play toys for kiddies– – that you expect to be junk.
I know that I have reiterated this time and time again, but since all these Chinese from the Chinese mainland, thousands and thousands more, are all living here in the United States, buying or just keeping all our land, and moving into it, I feel I have a right to say something about the quality of your junk.
I HATE YOUR PRODUCTS! I cannot emphasize this enough.. If I could, I would actually pay Russia, or even Africa, to make better products instead – – but I know that’s not possible, in this lifetime, so I would just say it again –
– I HATE FUCKING CHINA!I don’t even care, that my dad was born there, and raised their and spoke Mandarin and English bilingualy; I don’t care that, I have a Chinese doctor, because, he’s the best when I can get right now.and I used to be very partial to Chinese food, Chinese home-cooked food, (my dad knew how to cook it)and I don’t even care that I sometimes try to repeat, in Mandarin, what he used to say; all that comes out is a bunch of high-pitched sounds, because he never taught his kids Mandarin Chinese. – – And that I really miss the sound of angrily spoken Mandarin in the house. I just don’t care about all that anymore.
it does not help me,to remember that, all of that, when all I can get of appliances, are the Cuisinart blenders made in China, that have such bad motors, that I can’t even use them to shred ice, and use strong processing, the way the Cuisinart is supposed to do. – – And I do not dare buy a new food processor by Cuisinart, to replace my very old ancient one, because it will be the same cheap junk the Cuisinart is now having made in China.
NONE of the above memories, of my Hon. parent, are important, because China has completely lost its mind and its head, and it’s killing itself and all the rest of us.It actually bought the federal government of the United States, literally and it owns it. And instead of doing right by it, sends us all these rotten junk products that break down and don’t even work! How is that for Chinese workmanship? No, it’s not even Chinese anymore. It’s some bad semblance of Chinese, that any real Chinese person would be very humiliated to make or have or sell.
So every time I have to consider buying any type of new appliance, especially for the kitchen, or TV, or computer, or any minor thing to cook with, I have to think that “there goes my father’s country, it is no longer proud, it is no longer good, it is no longer anything anymore! It is only run by a bunch of filthy rich PIGS who act like a bunch of drunken gambling warlords!”— and I would silently add, “and they do not care anything about their own country anymore they act like a bunch of WHITE ALIENS in a FOREIGN LAND, that is not theirs. – – And that they have only invaded and taken over. But care absolutely nothing about!”
“now that many thousands of mainland Chinese, had slipped silently into the United States, bought up thousands of acres of land of the United States, and also had sent many of their communities very quietly into America, to live, (without any fanfare or a single piece of type, in any media in the land) I can imagine what my father would say about the Chinese and China and this particular bunch of shit:”
“China has completely LOST FACE!!the country and its people! It has lost face, so badly, that it has become the enemy it wanted to destroy. The United States. However, the Chinese have become so much EXACTLY LIKE the United States, that it can no longer say that it is SUPERIOR to it.– –”
China and its government and its people have become a country with out ANY DECENT face–just like a bunch of early American hucksters, come here to make a lot of money, destroy our country, and end up destroying themselves along with it.if America has degraded itself into a worthless and useless horde, unemployed, low-paid, not manufacturing, and not doing anything, then China has become exactly like it.destroying its air, destroying its land, and enslaving its people into endless damned manufacturing, resulting in JUNK that it forces Americans to buy.
I know that I used to be proud that my father had been born in such a historical, proud, and cultural country, with such a past of great workmanship, art, and philosophy, that we saw all their ancient art in museums now. But I can no longer be proud of my father’s heritage and his birthplace.
If he were alive today I would have to show him my very bad Cuisinart blender,and tell him, “no, dad, this thing was not made in Japan, the way we used to make fun of stuff made in Japan all the time. It was made in China, and the label associated with “made in China” is now associated with “made like a piece of crappy junk”.”
I’m sure that my dad would roll over in his grave,, except that he was cremated.and he would probably tell me, as at least one piece of good advice, “do not buy any more new appliances if you could possibly help it, and go right now and see if you can price a very large mortar and pestle. – – Because I think you’re really going to need it. Ah, and, do not sell,or lose,any of your mother’s old kitchen things–even the beat up ones–if you can.”–AH-SO.
(SANDRAMINADOTTY, still keeping words from the Kitchen God.)
“SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!”
(SKETCH OF LARGE CHEAP TREE-HOUSES NEVER WERE MADE)
My friend Caroline has had to go into debt. again–to fix up her old duplex,which required all maintenance and re-=fixing everything; she has a $60, 000. loan,a new mortgage.She WAS RENTING, but the rent in Eugene and Springfield too, is so expensive it was slightly cheaper to fix up the old duplex,and have them all move in there. Caroline’s credit is only good cause her ex-husband, who dumped her, is a contractor, and backs her very personally bad credit.
SOMEONE SOMEWHERE has to be solid enough, to get someone credit backing.that is her Ex.She has lousy wages herself.She’s the typical dumped divorced woman, who has much less money to live on.
She is slightly better off with a mortgage; but, it’s the same damn thing.EXPENSIVE HOUSING OF THE USA. –And it is the high cost of living, if you want to avoid being on the streets. homeless, you have to; (1.) have a good enough job(it pays her lousy) and good enough CREDIT (CREDIT is that stuff that has replaced all money,all gold,all silver,and all banks’ actual real 3-dimentional VERY EXPENSIVE AND VALUABLE METAL.–OR GOLD,OR DIAMONDS, OR ANYTHING.)
(EXPLAINING CREDIT: IT IS DEBT. that is the money of the poor, who require massive credit to live,instead of real money.People in the USA do not use money anymore—they have to have CREDIT.–its the only way they get enough money to live—but they owe everything they have, as a DEBT. THAT IS CREDIT. credit used to mean”i have money I can pay you, and I am not flat broke–I can always get you the real money.”–and gives the person he owes, a I.O.U.—which eventually will be called in. Meaning, the debt. holder will not wait forever for you to pay them.–you have to eventually give them enough valuable SOMETHING to pay off your debt.
HOW THE FED. GOVT. HANDLES THE NATIONAL DEBT: (FUN!)
(The fed. govt. handles the national debt. this way; we owe trillions of dollars, and now more trillions directly to China, mainland China, their govt. They know we can never pay them off in money, gold, silver. precious metals or jewels.
(So, we have sold them our AMERICAN LAND. They are free to come here, buy up all our acres, real estate,.and even come over here. to live in large communities of their own.(Yes, they are doing that now.All research on this subject comes from real brokers, real Real Estate News Online, and all technically available infor. on the web,in news, real estate news, and very available information,.If I can get it, so can you. I cannot get “secrets of the govt.” I learned these things with FACTS AND RESEARCH. DON’T BELIEVE IT. if you don’t want to.)__________________
(–Thus, we get credit on out debt., and China owns the USA. literally.-legally.(want to see the contracts? someone has them, in the fed. govt.–I swear on the Bible.)–lock stock and barrel(which is why firearms have replaced teddy bears and dolls for Xmas.)
(BUT–any time a person or nation, only lives on credit, and not actual gold, ext. in a vault somewhere,. (there is no gold in Fort Knox; ask a broker, I did.)–he is living in very overly-expensive,and high-cost situation.If a country has high national debt. the cost of everything in that nation is expensive; that means the “cost of living” for EVERYONE, is very very HIGH.–FOOD, RENT, HOMES, CARS,DOCTORS,CLOTHING,SERVICES, EVERYTHING IS HIGH COST. –ALL APPLIANCES, ELECTRICITY, FUEL, ECT. ECT. –not the luxuries, the NECESSITIES OF LIFE.
(AND when a fed. govt. is HUGE, MASSIVE, doing everything for everyone in the nation, it takes billions just to keep the fed. govt. from going BUST—CRASHING. THUS, you all, all you people working, are supporting a huge mass of debt. in your fed. govt.(notice your taxes of income have gone up 3 or 4 times as much>?OBAMACARE increased the national debt. by several trillion dollars.)
(China has quietly been collecting on that debt. Many of them have MOVED OVER HERE, IN LARGE COMMUNITIES–and many thousands of acres of land (see: Real Estate News Online) are bought up by the very rich Chinese cauz they need their money in SOLID INVESTMENT. LAND is the back up of all solid investment; you need LAND for everyone to live on.–the more people there are, the more the price of land goes up.
(Also, they are being sold CHEAP LUMBER from Oregon, “below cost”,because of a “little arrangement with our fed.govt.”All our nice limber is cheaply sold to China.)Lumber is only expensive to Americans. WE do not have a “little arrangement with the fed. govt,”The fed. govt,. says,”We own Oregon, we can sell it.”and they do.)
Back to our personal problem; how the cheaply paid worker of the USA, can afford housing, when it is so expensive from “high cost of living.” DEBT. –WE ALL HAVE BIG DEBT. or, we don’t have much money,except for the very rich at the top. we do not get away without having debt. either. Caroline is badly paid,( she has to keep working, as a senior,many seniors have to work, not retire, if they can get a job.)So, naturally, she has a mortgage to pay every month, and taxes too.–and income taxes.She has to pay–gasp–about 300 or 400 dollars a month for her state medical insurance. (I still cannot figure out, how she has a weight problem; but she has to eat cheap fast food a lot.– $$$, remember?)
CAROLINE AND I DEBATE WHERE TO SEND ALL THESE HOMELESS:
The local newspaper says that Lane county and Eugene govt. loves the homeless so much( and not trees) they are making them tiny homes to live in,.:”Wow,. can I get that deal?” says Caroline, gasping.”NO,
I reply, “You work for a living, you have to pay for everything; no freebees. ” “Yeah,” she replies, salivating over the idea of free housing.
“Where are they putting the tiny homes?” “In someone’s back yard, of course,without asking or telling them; this is Lane county, remember!!”(snicker)
So Caroline and I plan to send millions of our homeless,and get them off our country, and onto someone else’s. WHY NOT? GERMANY welcomed thousands of “un-scanned”immigrants,and they honestly don’t mind the upwards crime.Some of the Neo-Nazi groups have an idea about that–and about their prime minister.(But we don’t publish bloody crime photos on this blog.)
Europe is so compassionate and kind!! Send them there! GERMANY-MARCH-ONE-TWO-THREE–Camp out in French cafes,and sip great coffee.–get into labor unions–join huge demonstrations right in Paris( get a beret, plez!–and, in Paris, don’t wash yer hair.) Find a lover, and kiss under the Eiffel Tower! Get thrown out of chic restaurants!–try to camp out in the Tulleries?.(spelling!) OK, they are still homeless, but now they are CHIC HOMELESS.–it rates better for FRENCH VOGUE MAGAZINE,” CEE-VOU -PLAY?”(I speak no French, obviously.)“BUT,” asks Caroline, licking a day-old french fry,”What about RUSSIA? People are leaving there, all the time! why not put them there?”
We need to do research if there is real LAND UNDER ALL THE FROZEN SNOW AND ICE.–people already live on it, right?______
(is any of the HOUSING IN RUSSIA CHEAPER?? can we send our homeless THERE? I am volunteering for a new group,an organization, “GET THE HOMELESS OUT OF THE USA, AND INTO OUTER SPACE!!” –or just Finland.–Or Russia–where-ever.
Why are there TOO MANY PEOPLE NOW, ON PLANET EARTH?It is called “too much testosterone.”Instead of properly using it for WAR ,RAPE. PILLAGING, MURDER,HEAVY LABOR, and playing the Stock Market ,it gets focused on “SEX WITH NO CONDOMS.”BAD IDEA.–“GOOD IDEA? GET yerself and yer mate sterilized.no more kids!“HOWEVER, most nations and people WANT MORE KIDS-It is a very bad addiction,and we need International “Breeders Anonymous.“–as a requirement for welfare and food stamps–and for homeless.
(WHAT AN IDEA WHO’S TIME HAS COME!-CONTRACEPTION!“)
(Basically,we advise, “stick it in the world’s water supply.–PLEASE!”WHY NOT? WHO’S gonna notice?—less screaming hungry kids?-No ads on tv, late at night.of cute starving kids, who want yer dough.-NO KIDS, PERIOD.–NO DIAPERS, NO BABY FOOD, MORE SLEEP AND MORE MONEY. WOW!”
–Cause the current situation is–“over-population of the world”= -solution is (1.) Soylent Green, the film. (2.) read old sci-fi novels, and create monster-slaveS out of homeless–or just ORCS. (3,) send them to Russia, to join the slaves Russia already has(seen it on documentary, tv, no kidding–)they filmed slaves owned by Russian govt,, working. this was NOT ON FOX NEWS–they were filming tjhe new Olympics in south America, building the set ups for it. the “normal media” of usa filmed this.
(4.) do you have a spare archaepeligo, Russia, or are you using them all? — we know Russia puts their “prize citizens” there, as a reward.

I have read contemporary Russian writers, they detailed it.
___F R O Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z Z E N_ __!!!!!_______________________________!!!–
–kind of like the Russian version of our “summer camps for kids.”” snicker. –but if there are fat kids in the camp, everyone does not tease them–they try to find out how the fat kid gets all the FOOD.
RIGHT NOW, I read a lot of Russians are planning big medical project, to REVIVE LENIN. –make him a cvborg.–or even Kruschev– anyone to replace PUTIN THE IDIOT–who puts billionaire oil owners, business and oil drillers– in prison to get on their GOOD SIDE. (I read that also. we got real news!! not just Fox news).
Amazing; all these years, we’ve been treating oil billionaires the wrong way!!! –we let them own the US, and run for president–the whole family. Putin is no dummy (hah hah) he’s planning to run Russia only on COAL. –and mass amts. of workers digging coal out, and replacing all energy with COAL–NOT OIL– HE SAYS, All that coal smog is good for yer complexion.
I forgot, it was also RUSSIA WHO INVENTED OIL DRILLING, AND RUNNING EVERYTHING ON OIL– true!!! –not American capitalist pigs!! –we should blame all this shoddy Microsoft on THEM. –AND all the decendants of all the dead dinosaurs (which made oil) can sue Russia for “abuse of remains of sentient beings’ families.” of course it’s a class-action suit.
But Caroline and I are both exhausted from the “necessity of credit”(i.e. “being in debt.”) If you know a family,male,member of that oil-family, the BUSHES? Even if he’s gay?--I wanta marry him! Just look at it,as ” The one percent adopts the Broke-percent” ! Sigh! 😦 )
(Sandraminadotty, eating cheap popcorn and stolen toilet paper, for dinner.–it’s a salad night.)
(PAINTING OF NUDE SNORING THRU BORING SAT. NITE T.V.)
If you are a senior,.maybe you prefer snuggling up to popcorn,a loved one (or a cat) and a good t.v.show or movie,rather than going out, on Sat. night.But if your t.v, has COMcAST CABLE, prepare to nod off thru the evening,CAUSE THIS BILLIONAIRE-MEDIA-MONOPOLY IS TRYING TO RUIN YOUR EVENING. —on purpose.WHY?.
BECAUSE Comcast is not content making billions on screwing up your channel selection, and over-charging you for “sports channels” you never watch,or ordered; they are also trying to FORCE YOU TO USE “ON DEMAND” and pay extra, cause their Sat, evening fare is nothing but old, boring RE-RUNS.–YEAH, they planned it that way!!It’s enough to make us DUMP COMCAST CABLE, and just hunt the Net for entertainment,(free) and get Netflix.
If you technically HAVE TO eschew satellite t.v., and you are forced onto cable, come Sat. nite, you might be pretty burned up.So WHY IS CABLE TV SUPERIOR TO bROADCAST T.V.?
aNSWER; CABLE AND SATELLITE TV drove free broadcast t.v. out of business!!–because it used to be SO FINANCIALLY FREE for the consumer!! OLD BROADCAST T.V, used to be fabulous!! Even during the hey-day of westerns, and “made-for-t.v.-movies” in the 60’s, t. v. programming was SO SUPERIOR to the junk you get on T.V. YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR, NOW!!.
Ask a bunch of we seniors,baby-boomers; free broadcast t.v. was great!!Even during the 50’s, it was better than what Comcast makes you pay for now!!This idea of “you get what you pay for,” is B.S. now, YOU GET junk tv., and YOU ARE forced to pay for all that junk!!!NO WONDER tv corporations, the “Corps”, are doing so well; they have us all by the short hairs, and charging us huge prices for the torture!!
WHAT can we do about it? Not much; we are jailed by monopolies in this era. Along with no good choices for Pres. of the U.S., we have NO CHOICES ,much, in home entertainment!! its “dish,”. cable, or buy a lot of very good books every month.–which is not such a bad idea. Too bad the Eugene Public Library was taken over by all the homeless living there.–)thank you, Lane Govt.!!) But there are a VERY FEW THINGS you can do, to show your anger and frustration.
Do not pay your cable t.v, bill on time—make them wait for it.
If they charge you a late fee, make the “late fee” late also!! Remember, you gotta FORCE THEM to pay attn. to your disgust.
DO NOT EVER ORDER “ON DEMAND” cable tv, EVER!–NOT for any event.—we can’t emphasize this enough!!! The MORE EXTRAS you order from Comcast, the more they will cheat you on regular programming. –Get Netflix, or do “pirate-programming” online, for anything free. or even cheap!! DON’T BUY INTO HUGE CORPORATIONS, if you can possibly avoid it!! Gol out Sat. night, and be with friends.—or be with friends online–PEOPLE are now infinitely better than the “boob-tube” any more.
Some of you do know how to “steal cable”, and I refuse to say anything against it.–its such a bunch of rotten monopolies, its not really a crime any more.–So I really do not see how its morally wrong or criminal.
There probably are other ways to hit back at Comcast cable monopolies, I have not thought of. Come up with some of your own.As a senior, who’s Medicare has been shredded to welfare level, after seniors have paid huge taxes, to the fed., all their lives, I do not think the laws of the fed.govt. are sacred any more. Obama got away with breaking them all and he never got jailed for it.Neither did leaders who took bribes from foreign nations, against us.—AND BANKS WHO MADE US BAIL THEM OUT!!
its hypocritical to decide that we consumers and tax payers have to obey every law, when the BIG GUYS get away with anything they want.–while they step all over us, and we have to put up with it.DITTO COMCAST CABLE TV AND CORPORATION—You just do not have to put up with all their crap, and pretend its ok– it is NOT. DON’T put up with it,if you can possibly avoid it.
(Sandraminadotty, on sat. nite, falling asleep to comast cable tv re-runs again—oops, did i pay my bill yet? )
