“satire is our middle name!!!:”

But, no satire of “conservatism” could possible be as “progressive Democrat” as the Pres. Trump tax changes, that put we elderly tax payers right back in the Democrat camp again! We were completely fooled! 

we thought we voted  in republicans who would stop taking all the money away from work class and semi-middle class old people, by fucking  them over, and giving all their tax deductions to the RICH AND HUGE CORPORATIONS!  

WHAT IS the definition of “conservative ” in the USA? IT IS ” the party who reduces taxes on the work and middle class American, and does not further increase badly the national debt.”

We no longer HAVE CONSERVATIVES IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY any more; we have “soak the middle class and work class tax payers, and give all their money to the rich, and raise the national debt, up,further, than even  the Democrats could imagine.” Obama is laughing up his sleeve, right now, and whispering,”You guys  who voted in Trump? Bet you did’t know he is my TWIN BROTHER!1  HAA HAA HEE!”,’ 

“TRUMP is makin poor Hillary,and her raping husband, look like choir boys!–yeah, that is true about poor Hillary–she’s still a Hell of a lot better than voting in “FAKE CONSERVATIVES” who raise up the national debt.(just like me) and then over tax the elderly,middle and work classes, and give all their money to the rich and corporations! (Also like me.)”

“Trump is sure makin those liberal democrats look good now! At least Democrats don’t pretend they are “conservative”!  –and we don’t pretend we’re gonna stop “taxation without representation” like Trump did!–as you suckered middle and work class,and elderly just found out–“

And I am sure Obama and Hillary are on the phone to each other, jokin and laughin about how California voters who are republican, will probably resign from  from the Republican party and become “swing voters” from now on–or just stop ANY party affiliation any more–and do what?–


There IS NO CONSERVATIVE PARTY ANY MORE.  NONE. NOT a real one! There’s just “Democrat party # 1,:” and “Democrat party # 2.” And if we taxpayers stop voting or joining either one, we’ll have more time to rally secret revolutionary groups, make a new agenda of GOING UNDERGROUND, forming gun-practice, military practice, and studying how to become underground future militant troops and deciding when and how, we will over throw the fed. govt.–

–planning to recruit ex-and present US Military -members to secretly join us–and plan the day we take over by force.have a  successful coup,and get rid of those nasty dictatorial politicos–who are only a bunch of rich Banana Republic  CROOKS IN HIGH OFFICE—NOT REPUBLICANS–NOT DEMOCRATS–AND NOT CONSERVATIVES at all.

They are all just South American  assholes, we tax payers need to exterminate. Stop pretending they are any more than billionaires’ shills.–stop pretending they are even different—just a bunch of crooks and servants of the rich and huge corporations–that is ALL THEY ARE. Europe is having the same problem,we read, big fat greedy dictators–not leaders.

THAT is probably the future, and we need to stop pretending we voters run the fed. govt.–and that we own it. Excuse us, big pig politicians, if several million of we PEONS can’t pay our fucking  tax money  any more–

–its because we have to buy bigger armaments and more of them,ammo, and lay in plans for when we decide to take Thomas Jefferson’s advice:-

“We should have a revolution every 40 years.”.

That’s probably going to happen eventually when people can’t buy food any more or put a roof over their kids’ heads.Don’t say it can’t happen here. –who knows, we old people won’t HAVE TAX MONEY to pay taxes with, at some point, cause Pres. Trump and the republicans don’t even KNOW the definition of “conservative”. –we all stop voting and stop paying  our fucking taxes.  THAT can happen when you can’t even pay the mortgage any more.–but —


(just Sandraminadotty, not voting for anyone any more.)






SO WHY IS THIS SUCH A BIG SURPRISE? WHAT I AM REALLY SURPRISED ABOUT, is that any actress ever gets in a picture or tv show,without sleeping with any guy who produces the whole thing!!

Alec Baldwin is no nice guy;he can hardly make noises about President Trump, when he also possesses some of Trump’s worst features himself
!!Carolyn and I were trying to look up the “Harvey Weinstein–Kevin Spacey harrassment story” online.

+It was hard to get ahold of it, caUSE, on Twitter, there is Alex Baldwin, standing up for a fellow predator. –and he wants to excuse every Liberal Democrat male,of ever being any kind of predator—(we are supposed to forget all those White House gems.).

Speaking of “White House Gems,” many of we woman will never excuse the Democrat party, for choosing a black man to run for prez, instead of a more experienced White Female.HEY, DEMOCRATS, HOW THE HELL CAN YOU TOUT BEING  PROGRESSIVE, AND KILL OFF ALL THE WOMEN IN YOUR OWN PARTY,. AND STICKING THEM IN THE KITCHEN, BAREFOOT AND PREGNANT? .

Most of we women never forgave the Democrats that,and a lot of moderate demos, and lots of independents, stopped staying in the Democratic party. We were sick of being”very progressive and very sexist at the same time.”–You are supposed to expect the Republicans to be sexist, but the democrats?the Demos have absolutely no excuse for being such rapist, assaulting, female-candidate-denying asshole sexists!!

So when we finally read about Weinstein and Spacey,.(I guess that means Kevin is not gay after all?)–we were just not surprised at all–we were  surprised that it was coming out at all..–NOT SURPRISED, JUST READY TO GIVE OLD BALDWIN HIS JUST DESSERTS!! Ask his ex-wife how Alec will say anything, to get himself close to a beautiful body. –even so far as matrimony. –say “I am a vegan also!!”and then go eat hamburgers on the sly.–very cute, Alec. HA HA.

BUT what you gotta wonder, is, did Rock Hudson do the same thing, in his day? exert a little pressure on some young actor males??–when they wanted to get into pictures?–and tell them”I can get you next to Doris Day, in the movies.”???–or did his co-star in “GIANT”, JAMES DEAN, try to molest or seduce a very young blond actress in the movie(we read that he did) by accosting her during a scene, right under the same table?

We even wonder if the wicked Witch of the West,. with the very long nose,had to audition for her part,and prove that she :”had the charms that it took” to really make some guy feel very magical?Enchanted?–and it required that audition to  be able to play very witchy?

DID PALTROW HAVE TO SIT ON THE CASTING COUCH, TOO?:  HOW did the guys in Hollywood possibly keep their hands off of that blonde bomb??--I don’t think I could even walk by, in those days, and keep my eyes off Paltrow,and I am not even gay!!--Everyone at least, took a look!.

We would be glad to see Baldwin retire from pictures and tv.,and stop acting like the BAD ACTOR AND BAD COMIC he really is.–masquerading as a satirist, when he is only making fun of HIMSELF, NOT THE PRESIDENT. –-“THERE BUT FOR CASTING, GO HE, INSTEAD OF TRUMP!!”  Hollywood is just one big stain on the planet.

*(Sandraminadotty, ignoring and avoiding the pictures i can avoid–do you  spose Emma Thompson would put up with being nuzzled by a producer or director? or would she just start dancing, and kick the guy in the groin with a fancy whirl? Or maybe Ryan Gosling would get hard,and =fast, and get the assialiant out of the picture=—and then do a male-type pirouette?  in Eugene Oregon, sexism never goes out of style here!!!  🙂  )..





“HOW ARE YOU going to manage that?”asked Carolyn,who was making lunch for both of us,in my kitchen. I pretended I did not hear her.”Are you making soup?”I replied,as I typed this blog episode.”Yes,chicken soup, you mind?” “No,I love it,why would I mind?” “Are you sure that we’ll have a toilet to use, after we eat our lunch?”she asked.

“Yes,”I replied, I think I finally found an honest plumber,”I said,happily.”Even though he charged me the usual $300. he said, the other guys never cleaned out the main line!!!so this one was HONEST!!!Maybe because he’s young?He hasn’t learned how to really exploit plumbing-owners yet?”

It was a big Eugene Oregon problem–maybe the whole USA—CORRUPTION AND FRAUD of all vital services–you pay plumbers and vital services,and they don’t do the job,and ripp you off–maybe FOREVER–UNTIL you get a service company who didn’t do it!!

And now plumbers and roofers do not take “credit accts,”,they all want CASH.–OFTEN in thousands of bucks,the whole amt.,to put a new roof on.Still, you can try a few things:

If you have the roto-rooter before,who never did the job.and its a new bill,race to your BANK,AND CLAIM YOU NEVER GOT THE SERVICE–PUT THAT CLAIM into your bank!!!fast!!! You are disputing that you ever got the service,you are not allowing your bank (thru check or card) to pay it. If you are fast enough, your bank can investigate, and stop payment somehow. Sometimes it works.

However, its usually too late,months later,when you find out your loyal old fashioned plumber,was ripping you off every 6 months,cause he was “jimmying” your toilet to fall apart.The NEW PLUMBER  will have to do it right,charge you twice as much, and it’ll be too late to put a claim into your bank.

But if you buy something online from a big website,and you never get the object for many weeks, you probably can tell your bank not to pay after all,and put in a claim. In that case, since they NEVER SENT IT, you don’t have to pay it(although they already are on your statement, as having taken the money.)

The WORSE CASES,and these happen a lot,in Eugene and Lane county,are those “plumber- ripps- you- off -for-months- or-years,-on-going”and you often lose THOUSANDS by the time you get wise.Your “bug guy” or old nice plumber, are often SO SWEET, SO NICE, “BEEN IN WORK FOR MANY MANY YEARS HERE”–(you know the ones i mean)–that you almost NEVER CATCH ON!!!!(If you are a senior,you might even get a discount)–

–Isn’t that NICE of them?  AWWWWW.

They are the “bug men-Inc.” who saw signs of TERMITES, and let you pay for the kill-off, in big chunks.–you only find out,termites never HAVE THOSE SYMPTOMS!!! –From a different bug-company, much much later!!!-Which means”Let the buyer beware”you better know all the real signs of real bugs,you cannot trust ANY BUG MEN to know that!!

One of the best ways to find decent, honest services, is to “know people”,thru personal associations, (beware, even of those)like you got ONE HONEST FRIEND,and THEIR FRIEND, can also be counted on as honest.–(but be careful any how;)personal associations” have even come under scrutiny.

Even those “good reviews” on a company site, were recently found to be tampered with,in Eugene, because the premise of “buy used hi-tech goodies cheap” with mostly “good online reviews”blew up in our faces. We figured out,”online reviews” even can be screwed with.Makes you really paranoid, doesn’t it?  

Kiddo, DON’T TRUST SHIT just cause you find it online!!!

“What do you think,we can trust this guy,now?” asked Carolyn,as we sipped our soup,and noshed our cheese-toast.”Yeah,”I replied.”Seems so; but I’ll never buy one of those “test-kitchen-magazine-results” in a cooking magazine, those really are for suckers.Two hours for a simple recipe? I don’t trust cooks who LIKE dirtying every bowl and pot in the kitchen—to make SIMPLE MUFFINS!!!” Carolyn nodded her head in agreement, with cheese toast in her   mouth.

So goes this era–let the buyer beware.–especially in Eugene Oregon, and doubly if you’re a senior.–we don’t have extra money to waste.Do you?

(Sandraminadotty, in Eugene Oregon, drop a line, I’ll still be here, dying of Valley SMOG,– COUGH COUGH)





I know that every senior,unless you’re rich, goes thru various annual rituals every season; in Spring, the ritual of buying or trying on the swim suit, seeing if you’ve gained weight and bargaining with Heaven as to HOW MUCH poundage you would allow to be gained, or not.–bargaining as to HOW MUCH FOOD you would cut out to lose said poundage..

Would your diet include a certain amt. of whole-grain bagels every two weeks,or a month? HOW MANY could you get away with–And still lose weight? Whole grain and whole wheat takes more calories to digest,an advantage.

Since most of life is a bunch of merely bargaining for what you will put up with,or you won’t, or bargaining how much you’ll pay for something, (we always lose any how,but its important to tell yourself, you won)or how much trouble,boredom, abuse or crazy co-workers you can get the least of,on a job(while still earning enough to live on) —

–and who you can mate, marry, date,.or live with (includes social ties with friends) that  is at LEAST SOMEWHAT sexually attractive, interesting (but not TOO WEIRD) makes enough money (especially a male) and is affiliated with similar GOOD TRAITS also borne by your family tree,( very mechanically brilliant, academic, upper-middle class–or NOT upper-middle class) and has SOME of those traits to match with yours–

-and ALSO has the same GOALS as you do (or close; number of kids or NO KIDS, VERY ambitious, or very laid back; uptight or very loose) or you’re talking once again, someone who is the LEAST OFFENSIVE, least uncomfortable in close quarters, and the least tyrannical or crazy) and you can still stand the person after ten years, and not run crying to divorce court or outside affairs.

In other words,we slowly learn that in life, its not the very best factors in life that we aspire to, but instead the MOST TOLERABLE factors we can stand, without jumping off the 20-story building. Our goal becomes the MOST TOLERABLE, and LEAST HORRIBLE life that we can manage.

The world is populated by billions who have given up on ANY bargaining, and succumbed to a numb, non-life, existing without the least control over ANY factors in their lives; even to the point of “OK, I had a horrible childhood, so I found out, that gives me a HORRIBLE adulthood, and no matter what I do,I cannot change it.”

Science and psychiatry find more of our lives that CANNOT BE CHANGED, because  we were born into particular types of circumstances, noticing how directly one predicts the other. Diabetic families inherit diabetes, and crazy abusive parents produce totally fucked up children, who have so fucked up lives as adults.So what has this got to do,with bargaining entertainment “packages” every year with Comcast?

You lose no matter WHAT PACKAGE you re-buy.Comcast employees repeatEdly LIE TO YOU, disconnect you, fend you off from promotions over the phone(and their website) and it takes 3 or 4 hours to finally haggle down to a package with LESS MOVIE CHANNELS, for more money, but at least you have the ILLUSION that you’ve won. You’re paying more money, for less services, there is really no choice.

But at least you finally got rid of worthless movie channels full of DULL DUDS, and HBO, that creature of misery and repetitive crap-junk that you are sick and tired of. You after all, watch mostly in the low numbers, with CARTOONS, FUNNY SHOWS of cartoons, cheap kung-fu, old tv show-channels, and the occasional black and white  old sci-fi movies you’ve seen forever,and loved. 

You DON’T WANT SPORTS–OR NEWS–OR DOCUMENTARIES forever, nor do you want “reality tv” or “sales-channels–;you can’t stand “prime-time tv”, cause the best stuff comes on very late at night, or during the day..

If you’re like me,you  want to escape modern, bad tv shows, which slide off your back like garbage off a bum, and you just want “Turner Classic Movies,”cartoons, Family Guy, The Simpsons, South Park (satire) and American Dad,, old tv shows, and escape from bad new films(“50 ShADES OF GRAY”?”HOW TO BE SINGLE” the female version of “Ghost Busters” not funny at all, and cops,violence,cops, action, cops, chases-of psychopaths, more cops, gore, blood, torture, perversion,  “science-teams of cops”, cops who analyze all data. computer cops, Miami cops,  and female cops.

It makes you feel so “retro”, when we seniors got very good tv, for NOTHIN’.–BETTER shows!! —-so why should we pay high prices for cable tv? We already HAD the best tv,and it was FREE. COMCAST, GO TO HELL!!!  YOU don’t even know what REAL T.V. IS!!   It sure is NOT CABLE TV!!  And if I knew how to “steal cable” I would do it if I could. You probably deserve it for being such a ROTTEN, BAD entertainment company. –and an illegal monopoly, I am sure.

But now it’s legal to CHEAT the public,and they have to put up with it. “1984”  is here, and you have  to pay for everything, even the stuff you hate. I’d rather watch LESS CRAP, its not worth it..Bring on the cartoons, cause the world’s gotten very un-funny..As a senior, you need to LAUGH at it all.HAH HAH.

(Sandraminadotty, in Eugene Oregon, watching the older shows from “Star Trek:the next generation.”  Isn’t Commander Riker cute?)  🙂  ….





Well, here we are, as usual, trying to write an article for my blog, (which is mostly for seniors)but others,too,in Eugene Oregon.

Anything to help out the weary,elbow-hurting typers who spend hours every day trying to make sense of the hopelessly over-messed up Internet now messing up all our lives.NOW, seniors, aren’t you happy you’re OLD, not young, with the internet-technology and hideously made computer JUNK by Bill Gates, screwING up YOUNG PEOPLES’ LIVES??And their WORK?

Microsoft? Oracle? Word Press? “PERMANENT -ELBOW,ARM, HAND PAIN and disabilities, caused by”CLONK-CLUNK-CLUNK–“WHAPPING a keyboard that ruins your joints.and screws up your orthopedic problems?” Your doctor says,”no more typing–get dictation-ware.” “Which one?” “The program that costs 1,000’s of bucks, of course, not the “HOME VERSION” that sucks!” DRAGON.

Can you imagine doing this for a living, probably MORE THAN 40 HRS. A WEEK?(YES, gentle reader, we’ve seen seniors type,click-click–clack-clack, type over-time, and do financial computer work, get treated like PUKE by  big companies, get carpal tunnel,and when they get diabetes, ect, from old age, get thrown to the curb without the insurance they’re paid all their lives on—Yeah, this happens all the time!!

Those few seniors who were not TERMINATED by big companies, try to hack (hee hee) the mechanical work-world of today, hopelessly competing with younger, cheaper employees. –And most of us have gotten either kicked up-stairs, or fired and retired. —

This is NOT the “Age of the Worker”, its “The Age of Techno-Tyrants and Tyrant-corporations.” I would NOT BE YOUNG AGAIN,. for anything!!!Caroline and I are here to remind you seniors, how lucky you are to be facing the Grim Reaper, and not the autistic “Microsoft – SHITTER” — and you know exactly who I mean.

all I was trying to do,was find a printing shop who could copy my computer art, the digital  painting, and make a few copies, some good ones, to donate to a local art sale (for really good causes.) However, I could not get onto Yelp and get any reactions of the reviews, or find out anything else.. Essentially, YELP seem to be at a standstill, not functioning.

So, I went on to Angie’s list.but it’s more fucked up than it used to be, even though it’s free, I supposedly had a membership there, and the computer could not find it, and their phone number had answering machines, and nothing but.

In other words, I can’t use either one of these business review websites. They were hopelessly clogged up, not working, and they were floating pieces of junk only, in the overly messed up and cluttered Internet mess we are in now.so, should I resort to the old way of life, get a phone book and go through it and call up printing companies? Because the Internet at least locally, is so screwed up and so clogged up, it doesn’t work anymore?yelp is not available; Angie’s list is not working.

and I have to start using my phone book instead of the Internet, because that WEB is being spun into fantastically nonfunctioning, spiderwebs, from which none of us are now able to escape. And we certainly can’t use them for business!

I’m using Comcast. It’s supposed to be the most superior.

But how about the WEB? There isn’t another substitute for the web. This is the only one we have and it is hopelessly clogged up  along with all the companies phone systems that you can’t get through anymore.– – HEY, CHINA! Are you using the same systems we are  to do business? Somehow I doubt it. Or, at least the wiser Chinese companies  are not  doing this. But, why the hell should modern Chinese be any smarter than modern Americans? Or modern Europeans?do you suppose the young Chinese are like Zuckerberg and Bill Gates?

Really really fucked up younger people,who own everything?

“Can you get a printing company?”Caroline asks.”I’ll have to use a phone book,and call some up directly,”I reply.”my elbow-joints are screaming at me, my fibromyalgia is bad,and frankly,all of me is wearing out on this fucking computer–clack-clack–SHIT.” “You need to take a nap,” replies Carolyn, who’s my age, but less computer-oriented.–lucky girl!! 

“I need to have my head examined, for trying to be an aging computer-user!!Going on weird sites, meeting weird people from England,France, ect!!–who REALLY ARE different than we Americans. They love socialism–they dote on it!!!”  “You forgot the hacker-trolls you are so lucky to meet.” “Oh, yeah, and having ALL MY ID INFORMATION hacked into,and thrown in my face!”(True story.) “I hear the web is outta control anyhow,” sighed Caroline.

“That, my dear, is an understatement.”

WHAT would that icon of wit, Oscar Wilde, have to say about this era?”Thank God, that YOU are in it,and not me!!”-he’d reply. And with further thought–“You Americans and other white people need to retire to another WORLD; obviously the present and future is YELLOW,BROWN, and all the WHITE is getting bleached out. So much for living in the era of  COLORFUL times.”(sneer.)  Was Wilde prejudiced? He was old-fashioned British; whattdya think?

“I’m not writing, i’m closing up the blog,”I say to Caroline,”I have to 800-number Amazon.com, their software on site doesn’t work.” I’ll have to find a printer OFF the web.Fucking tennis-elbow and arthritis–I’m gonna read a book,too. River Road stinks like a lumber mill today!!” “So does the rest of Eugene,” she informs me;”High pollen count mixed with gasoline-SMOG– we seem to be getting Brown air,too.”

It’s BLACK. EUGENE is modern American too; it really stinks.Ouch!!I need to go stretch!OWW OWW!” I seriously consider making old-fashioned art for the art sale.–ONE copy.We baby-boomers are so quaint!!
