“WHEN DID YOU REALIZE, HBO AND COMCAST XFINITY HAD GOTTEN SO BAD?–WHEN YOU WENT BACK TO READING ANCIENT FASHION MAGAZINES FROM 5 OR 10 YEARS AGO!!!—(AND THEY ARE NOT VOGUE OR HARPERS’ BAZAAR!!)–IN EUGENE OREGON”

(satire is our middle name!!)

(ANOTHER TERRIBLE ARTWORK OFF THE WEB–BUT FUN)

i was spending another fun-filled night at home,(much like the rest,)so unbored every channel of a HBO,showtime,and Xfinity Comcast looked black and white on a color-screen.It then occurred to me”every single program on this huge mass of XFinity Comcast, pay-TV HBO laden and Showtime( only free for three months, to get me hooked on it)was starting to look like 1960s reruns in the summertime?”.

it was because I was paying huge amounts of money every month, to get the same thing that I used to get every summer in the 1960s, for sure; lots and lots of reruns! Only this time, I was paying for every single thing that was being rerun, over and over again! What the hell was wrong with me?

it was true: in the 60s or 50s, all of your TV was basically new every single season – – and we were NOT paying to watch it..now, that we were paying for every single piece of pay TV, in 2017, it was not only worse, it was an additional amount of reruns that we had never had before – – and we kept Paying for Them More and More and More! I  taked to Carolyn over the phone.

“Yes, “she replied,”it’s true… There are no more new TV shows being made.! They’re just are not! Places like XFinity Comcast and HBO are only pretending to make new ones!they are all OLD! Every single one of them is OLD! As far back as the 50s or 60s or 70s, all TV on Comcast cable TV networks, is very ancient and they haven’t actually made or recorded any new TV since – – so long I can’t remember.maybe since the 40s!”.

“tthere wasn’t any TV at all in the 40s!” I said. “See what I mean? The TV on cable TV is so old you are all convinced that there actually was TV in the 40s! Maybe there was, maybe there wasn’t, but the truth is  – now – there is no new TV being made anywhere in the United States or other countries, that is actually NEW.”.

” than what is that new stuff we’re watching on the screen?”Carolyn asked.” there must be new TV! I’m sure of it!”

“The reason you’re convinced of it, that the Comcast repairman, come over once a month, to everybody’s house, and, with old needles inserted special “rerun – heroin” into every TV watchers veins!it’s been going on for so long, you’re paying for old reruns of old reruns of old reruns, and every single channel is filled with all kinds of unintentional non-invented actually nonexistent filler!there are no educational stations! It’s all filler,  and old filler before that,so far back, that nobody can remember even in XFinity Comcast research offices!”

“I don’t believe it!” Replied Carolyn, getting anxious.” I pay hundreds of dollars every month!” “don’t you notice that you never see anything new? All of these are old – – way back to the 40s and 50s and 60s – – and you never see anything on HBO that is made any good anymore,, because all of that stuff on HBO that’s new, is stuff they bought from film students’ classes assignments!” Carolyn’s mouth hung open in a big wide OH..

“then I guess that explains it,” I continued.”why I am going through all my old fashion magazines, as far back as 10 years ago, reading all the articles,(even the articles that I didn’t like in the first place,) and reading them instead of watching TV! There is no  NEW TV, and no NEW MOVIES! I have seen every single thing on  Comcast about five or 10 or 12 times  already!– – many years ago, when they still had some good TV and it was free!”but then, where Was anything new to watch? Where are all the new movies?

there aren’t any. Yes, there is no new TV, and there is no new movies; I mean there are no new movies!EVERYTHING IS RERUNS! Even the new movies coming out are New copies of very old movies that were already made! Over and over and over and over there are no new movies under the sun anywhere! They are all RERUNS! And I’m paying to watch old reruns made from old movies made from old reruns made from old Movies and reruns!no wonder I’m so bored!

that also explains why, all the new movies that I watch seem to remind me of old comic books from long ago, that I used to read; they are old comic books from long ago! Even the Transformers  are old Transformers, from so far back we can’t even remember!—it’s become a TIME WARP – – unlike regular time travel, all of the past, is filtered into the future, where everybody thinks it’s the present time,  And future,Is  actually been warped back from the past, into the present and in the future.!

“I don’t even understand that,” said Carolyn doubtfully.” you don’t have to understand it, but if you stop watching  Comcast TV and their movie channels, you will no longer be bored! You will be a normal healthy intelligent person once again!” I continued excitedly. “Okay,” sighed Carolyn,” just hand me an old movie magazine, or old-fashion magazine, and it’ll be like I never ever read it before. – – And, I won’t be paying hundreds of dollars every month for some  God damn cable TV, that is a huge  FAKE and a farce!”

“besides,I happen to know,” I continued, “that if any new movies are made, they’re going to be scattered all over the Internet, instead of ever getting onto your TV set!  They’re not going to wind up on TV! They’re going to be on THE NET! No matter what Google says, go on duck duck go, and start searching – – they’re out there And They are free!  Even all the old X-Files were out there on The web! YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAY FOR CABLE TV!!! GRAB A “duck duck go” and go!”

“and be sure to tell your XFinity Comcast salesman, to go to Hell!”

“THE PRACTICAL WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT(AGAIN) EVEN IF YOU ARE A SENIOR:–IN EUGENE OREGON”

weloveliveinusabutnogunsphonehome1487911657_538

“”HORRIBLE CARTOON WE FOUND ON NET,AND DON’T UNDERSTAND, ASIAN LADY CALLING HER MOM IN CHINA”(???)

We like to think that we can keep excess weight off, but that is unrealistic. All our lives, we have had to go back and lose weight,many of us,over again, in this society. I’m not dumping my responsibility for eating, but even experts have said, because of all the excess food that is very cheap and bad, advertised  24 hours a day, and outside wherever you drive, it is just very hard to keep off excess weight for almost everyone in the United States.

if you get a period in  your life when you are under too much stress, and you have a history of eating for comfort, or “spastic – eating” (you know what I mean!) Or you’re not moving around enough anymore, as we senior get, you can acquire very extra weight, very Suddenly. AND, Seniors tend to get some extra weight in old age, because, number one, your system is trying to protect you from any excess disease or infection by giving you a little extra weight. It also does that when you are a child.

When we women go through menopause, your body sees that as a BAD THING, “Eek, you’re losing all your estrogen! Hey, I’ll give you some extra weight to help keep it on!”you have noticed, when you stop being a child, and get to be a teenager and a young adult, that baby fat goes away.(consult a book on women’s hormones and estrogen and the other hormonal system in the human body, if you want some medical information) –

– Mainly because, your new hormones estrogen are helping to keep the baby fat off. Yes,  that makes a lot of sense and it’s why younger people have a higher metabolism, for the most part.. A lot of it is your new body as an adult. So, as we said above, the huge loss of estrogen in old age, can turn  your muscle into fat, or, at least a lot of it.

You’re not eating a whole lot more food (most of the time) but you are going through losing your hormones, being less physically active,, hurting more because  of age problems,, and  you are OLD.– – and getting old can be very very stressful. A lot of us, like MOI, just cannot handle the physical disabilities,, and the end of your (in my case, and in many peoples’) good looks. it’s amazing, that everyone thinks getting old, you’re afraid of bad health.

But a lot of us, still, look at ourselves in the mirror,  and can’t even recognize ourselves anymore. Were just not the same person! That is extremely depressing. We would give just about anything, including our good health (if we have it) to just look young, without actually being young anymore..WE WANT OUR LOOKS BACK!!– – so getting old and LOSING THINGS from your youth, or even just your 40s, is hellishly stressful. It can be VERY depressing!!!Plus, everyone we know, especially older family members are all dead or dying.–your FRIENDS are dead. Your life is GONE OR DIFFERENT.

iT IS SUCH A DISTURBING THING, that I have to stop writing this article for the moment, and come back to it later, to get a handle on my feelings about it. DAMN! (To be continued later, don’t worry I’m going to do it!) Sandraminadotty—in Eugene Oregon)

okay, we are back. We are just going to bite the bullet . Basically, you are never going to have exactly the same body you had in your youth or even your 40s. (My 40s were very hot, I did yoga all the time, I was hot stuff – – at least for being in my 40s,– – according to me anyway.) Stop thinking about how Sharon Stone still keeps most of it off, and looks devastatingly similar to how she looked in her youth. You are not Sharon Stone . Even Sharon Stone is not Sharon anymore.!!!

the poor girl went through a devastating major health problem for many years, and she probably even had to get her whole face stretched back to normal,  when her brain went back to its normal position.that woman was really beautiful! Please, see how hard it is to go from that, to being Sharon Stone now? I even feel sorry for her!– –( but not really)

So, the first thing on your new diet is this; you’re going to have to stick with this, probably the rest of your life  just like you did before. You’re going to have to stay HEALTHY as you can and not get  absurdly thin.it’s not healthy anymore(if it ever was).  Go to your doctor, tell him you want to lose weight, see what he says, and you will hear him predict to you “go back to Weight Watchers. They have the best diets.” And of course you get lots of support. And you’ll need it!you can’t really consider it a DIET, it is a “permanent way of eating for your health.”

but, here is what usually happens now. Now, everything is a lot more expensive to do or buy, that it used to be. If you can’t afford to go to Weight Watchers (I know people who can’t) then you’re going to have to get a buddy system going, among people you trust and know, and especially YOURSELF. Your friends, your family, and other women or men, who are having weight trouble and don’t want to do it all alone.this also includes your doctor..  (But not the losing weight part– – just for the support.)

.so here’s where you have to start thinking and planning yourself. Most success in diets, say the statistics, are diets that you have gerrymandered or manipulated  or screwed around with,, your self. They work for you. They should still be mostly  healthy, most of the time. However there are things you just cannot give up completely, and you shouldn’t have to.

For example, some people cannot give up a certain amount of SUGAR or  CANDY. But if you can’t handle it in the house with a tiny little bit once in a while, you’re going to have to get it OUT of the house, buy it somewhere, and that’s the only little piece you could take home or eat..for those who cannot give up the fat piece of chocolate, buy a little bit—once in a while.(and then drink a whole lot of WATER.).yes, lots of water!!!ONLY VERY INFREQUENTLY!!

I, myself,have a horrible time giving up dairy queen ice cream cones, the double flavor swirled ones.SO LUSCIOUS!!but if I take home a package of Dilly bars, I am in a lot of trouble. They usually go away, in one or two days. So I have to keep them out of the house. – – And I’ll only go outside, to have it, once in a long while.

DRINK lots of water – – tea, tomato juice, ice water, more water, hot chocolate very dilluteds, eat fruit for dessert; eat lots of watery SOUP.We are seniors, we often need METAMUCILL DAILY.–with lots of water.Make lots of very thin,good,lentil soup.If you are like me, and need to CRUNCH AND CHEW, POPCORN light or no fat,lotsa Kosher coarse salt,once a week.–Cucumbers, celery (carrots are hard on my teeth) lettuce with tomato salad with dinner. BUT make your diet have good things, you enjoy.A lot of healthy food is delicious.-

-MAKE YOUR DIET TASTE DELICIOUS.–

AND then, you’ll have more success staying on it.But, you don’t need sugar every day(I am addicted to Splenda, cause I have a major sugar-addiction(as do many alcoholics) and if you can keep ONE MEDIUM SIZE bottle OF HONEY, IN THE HOUSE, while only using mild amts, do so.–But if the honey consumption is too high, throw it out,no honey in the house(unless a nother person locks it away,you can’t see it.)Drinking alcohol is very weight-gaining.

OK, CALORIES COUNT–IF you want to lose weight, and keep it off, be realistic. Often we have to cut out a third of our daily calories, to lose weight. Get a “calories-guide” little book, that tells what everything has calories of.(???)

Yah, dhis is English!!!WALK MORE. not extreme exercise, just WALKING. STOP using the car for going one or two blocks.–even more housecleaning (mine is “clean cat box,give cat food, water cat, give cat grass from outside, clean up cat vomit,–wash all dishes–clean shower with bleach–wash some clothing by hand-soak-rinse, wash out, put on back fence in hot weather, to dry–some clothing does NOT  do well in wash machines–undies, WHITE CLOTHING–stains–)

You got it; don’t do extreme sports–housework will do it!!Back yard work–gardening? My sister gardens, she hauls heavy tools and pushes huge rocks, to make rock gardens–(ok, so i gotta macho-gardening sister!!She likes it, not me.Gardening to me is only, “kill more blackberry bushes!!cut grass!!!cut weeds!!–cut and kill ivy all over everything!!”go buy another small,sharp scythe, go out, chop tall weeds,)–then, you can go eat a swirly cone, at Dairy Queen!!

Do not buy a step-master, ect, ect, Get some cheap 5-lb. free weights, and just do daily mild lifting.–or start with less weight,START EXERCISE SLOWLY–very slowly–do not push it–you’ll be back at the chiropractor again, Look at the NICE CLOTHES, in your closet, think how great it will be, to wear them again!!Put a full length mirror somewhere near your kitchen—use it.–get several for the house–you can’t HIDE from them.—-and have other busy or relaxing activities (like writing a stupid blog) to get focused on. Wanta go back to sewing?

PLAN TO LOSE WEIGHT–but, do not be cruel to yourself,Take needed vitamins.–think of foods you like(fruit?grapes? apples?)–drink plenty of milk(we still need it.) Having taught cooking to many,thru my life, we had to make our food look good,and taste good.–otherwise, you cannot do even a healthy diet. You can’t force yourseldf to eat DULL FOOD, I love many Indian spices,and I use garlic(dried not salt) I love Paprika(try the Hungarian, its fantastic) and I love Chinese food too.(they use lots of vegetables).BABY YOURSELF in other ways–nice bathes–nice lotion–relax!!

“Extra Virgin olive oil and Kosher salt on that (whole-grain) bagel,” are a taste treat. (eat carbs sparingly.)and REST. SLEEP.–Rest and sleep are so needed for we seniors, we forget that!!Everyone needs them–but we might get tired more–we need real sleep.–plenty of it. A senior having to lose a little weight,(again?) is not a catastrophe.Ask for support from your nearest and dearest.–or friends.

Take good care of yourself.That is not always easy, in this world, but you need to do it. Ask for help when you need it(and yes, that means you GUYS ALSO!!)-IF YOU’RE A HEAVY DRINKER, try to stop or go easier on it. it really packs on the lb.s. I hope this has been some help–planning to lose weight, and slowly starting, not being “extreme” is the best way. Just cause we’re older, we’re not dead yet. –and I am not kidding about making your FOOD TASTE GOOD–LOOK ENTICING, and being food you like.(I have a weakness for yogurt, and ricotta-skim milk, so I keep it around.)

DON’T beat yerself up,say,”I look terrible!!I’m too old!!”OK, we’re old, so what?EVERYONE gets old.–you don’t have to become a huge,sluggish mass, not able to put on a shirt,or skirt, buy something in your “large size”.Plan to keep looking good.And, most of all, “Be gentle to yourself.”Yeah, be kind!!You might not be a young athlete again, or the Disco-Kid you used to be–but you are still YOU. Some people do feel better getting a little cosmetic surgery, but its not necessary–that’s up to you.

  Let this be a POSITIVE GOOD THING, you can also enjoy, eating better and enjoying good food.Maybe not as MUCH OF IT—we don’t always need as much,sometimes, as we age–even the French have to EAT SMALLER SERVINGS of fabulous food, but its still very tasty in smaller amts. Let me introduce a word to we Americans–=-MODERATION.

“MODERATION in all things”, say the Swiss.–and we’re talking about people who LOVE to eat,and LOVE CHOCOLATE.–Everyone in my American-Swiss-German family was a good cook, and loved to eat. BOY, do we love to eat!!!And bake!! So my sister and I have had to cut back on all the baking, a little, (a lot) cause that orgasmic-baking experience can lead to psychedelic, groovy, mind-blowing, LSD-DROPPING, – baked goods. mmm..!!!!Yes, you can go out, and buy one fat cookie AT YOUR FAVORITE BAKERY.–one cookie.–ok, you can’t handle the cookies?

-Try the apples in the fridge.No one ever said, losing weight is easy–its just “planned starvation”. Everyone gets old, everyone changes, and you still look good for your age. Don’t be hard on yerself. cause losing weight that way, is even harder.I am going to go make a cup of hot chocolate(using Splenda) And, after that, I might go for a walk. 🙂

 We were fooling around reading online read (1)newspapers, and we ran into this commentary news item,and we were especially astonished at what the writer dug up about Hilary Clinton and Russia; so although everyone knows the democrats are trying to oust Trump and frame him for collaborating with Russia, we found out THIS, from the commentary. It seems that HILLARY HERSELF had “ties” with Russia she could not deny or the Democrats deny. “I guess you have to hear it from both sides, to get the truth now,”I commented to Carolyn,as we read the article..

Charlie Daniels’ Open Letter to Chuck Schumer: You’ve Opened Pandora’s Box

Charlie Daniels

By Charlie Daniels | May 24, 2017 | 12:17 PM EDT

Senator Chuck Schumer (Wikimedia Commons Photo)

Sen. Schumer, I don’t live in your constituency, but in the larger picture, you live in mine and every other legal, taxpaying American citizen who is affected by the power you hold in your political party, your blind allegiance to it and the obstructionist posture to anything that doesn’t directly benefit it.[please excuse the emotes:icon_confused

There’s something sinister about seeing you bent over the lectern in the Senate Chamber, your countenance resembling what I would imagine Edgar Allen Poe’s would look like reciting one of his macabre tales of doom and gloom, as if there is not one drop of happiness in your life, forecasting a dismal future for America if anything President Trump proposes passes both houses, is signed and becomes law.yawn (1)

 

I know you’re disappointed. I know you had the balloons ready to fall and the corks halfway out of the champagne bottles on election night. And I know you just can’t face the truth that what happened in the election was exactly the same thing you continue to do: you forgot about the working people; you forgot about the empty factories of the rust belt; you took for granted the high crime, low employment inner cities you’ve made unkept promises to for decades.whine (1)

Instead of looking inward at the real cause for your party’s loss, you had to find a scapegoat, and if it hadn’t been Russia, it would have been something else.struklightnin1471

Sen. Schumer, will you do me and America a favor? Will you lay your hand on a Holy Bible and tell America that you believe in your heart that Donald Trump has actually colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russian government to the detriment of the United States of America?leatherface

You see, sir, everything you’ve come up with so far, and you’ve been at it since well before the election, has been superficial. And I believe that anything your special counsel will come up with will also be superficial, guilt by association, the fires of triviality fanned and proliferated by a tilted, hate-filled media and super partisan politicians._angry__by_CookiemagiK (1)

Sen. Schumer, what goes around truly does come around, and if, or should I say when, this pendulum starts swinging back the other way, do you realize that Mr. Mueller could actually find a lot more dirt on prominent Democrats than they do Trump and his staff?___fight____by_forestsofazarath

You have opened Pandora’s Box, sir, and basically thrown away the lid.Tug_o___War_by_the_ska_boss

Now it’s time to chop the log and let the chips fall where they will.When_Sputnik_Attacks_by_Phoenix_Pyre

If President Trump has actually colluded with the Russians or any other foreign government, or sold out my beloved nation in any way, I definitely want to know about it, and if he has, he should be impeached and thrown out of office in disgrace. But right now, you’re a hell of a long way from proving even one iota of your accusations.Emoticons_02___Sherlock_Holmes_by_Kopanitsak_C

-And many MODERATE people live here, cause they can’t sell their places for enough money to leave and go some place more peaceful.  But at least, the city of Eugene and Lane County (Put my link into google search, please, GOOGLE–I need the exposure!!–)-can;t stop me (yet) from going online and telling the biased, hypocritical Liberal democrat aristocracy here, what we moderates think about the traitorous conduct of Democrats and the “MEDIA” as they revile the voted -for President of the United States:week_2___scary_movie_by_blissfullysarcastic-d4lo8b0

“TECHNOLOGY, CELL-PHONES, HELP YOUR DOCTOR INSTANTLY GIVE YOUR PHARMACY, YOUR NEEDED PRESCRIPTION. WHAT A GREAT MODERN WORLD OF MEDICINE!!”—IN EUGENE, OREGON

roundneon127317-v1

“SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE-NAME!”

i would be remiss,if I did not be fair about it. The pharmacy  Gives me hell, but the pharmacies in other states do the same thing.but in Oregon, in a pharmacy, the only one who actually knows what they are doing (we hope) is the pharmacist. Chemist_emoticon

Otherwise, you have to go over your prescription order, with the people who put it in, and you have to call up and scream at the people who work there, because they had just told your friend, who’s picking up your prescription up, that they don’t have the prescription order at all.mailboxempty

So you call up a couple of doctors, because the pharmacy is saying they don’t have the prescription order from them, and then when you call back, in a few minutes, a different person is saying “yes the pharmacy did refill it’s right here.” But your friend has  just called you, and said,” pharmacy won’t give you your order, they did not phone it in at all, the Dr..”.so you have to check on that, and call your friend back, and say:bbbf2f4188545a559492ac531abaf3d7-d2xf6kf

“these pharmacy employees are some of the worst asshole I have ever met in my life! What am I supposed to do about them? The company hired them because they’re cheap, but they don’t seem to be able to do anything! They can’t even keep track of your prescription from the doctor! They don’t seem to be able to do anything except pick up their paycheck!”6d33536dc0ca47e246dbf51ee0bca783-d4l5qrl

Yes, the pharmacy is ready, and they gave you the wrong information when you went into pick it up! All the technology is so great and now all the people are so damn stupid!crying_in_the_rain___may_emtc_by_mirz123-d51fg88

(also, this software is going on the fritz, and often uses double lettering, instead of what I tell it to do.  It also gets put on “go to sleep” and then it comes back on, without me telling it to. In fact, it does this all the time also!)_tardpat__by_crakaemotes

there seems to be some kind of relation, between employees in the United States,California, Oregon, getting stupider and stupider,, and the software getting worse and worse. What is the connection?  Maybe it’s  because they get so reliant on computer machinery, and software, and all the stuff that’s going right into the toilet, because we have a international “collapse of technology”– – and all the employees in the United States have decided to go down with it!and copy it!crowbar_glomp_by_asmodiel-d369aq3

.so I call up the main office of bi-Mart, and I tell them about it, and I complain. It’s not going to do any good, except to get me into trouble with those same employees, because I complained about them to the main office.asdf_llama_by_sweetcreeper132pl-d72jg27

.it’s similar to, if you work in a rest home.in Oregon, and you call up the main organization that enforces the rules, and tell them that “one of the employees is abusing the old people he’s supposed to be taking care of, in this home!”– – and what happens is,  the rest home FIRES the complainer! (True story.)eekIMOattack horror04

So what you have in the United States is this: DON’T COMPLAIN, BECAUSE YOU, not the problem, WILL GET FIRED! You think that Trump was very bad about firing people? The problem is, Obama never fired incompetent people!-he just raised  their wages!-the FBI’s sitting on its FAT butt,and if you’re an inside employee and you blow the whistle, you, the whistleblower, will get in trouble and lose your damn job. (Another true story.)  zombie___emote_by_mdkofdoom

We remember the Boston Marathon Massacre, and we remember 9/11, neither of them should have been ABLE TO HAPPEN.  Our cute little FBI.embarrassed

I also remember, every time I had to call up, some type of tradesmen, like somebody who put in the new air-conditioner, years ago? –, and HE didn’t know how to do it; and bull-shitted me, and told me it was supposed to operate that way and it did not get very cold on purpose. And then one time,later,someone else from another company came in,  to do something else, and he said, “your air conditioner is what is wrong , your air conditioner was never installed properly! Whoever did it, screwed it up!” (this happened in California.)morehorrorrrhorror09

maybe you think that everybody is liable to make mistakes, once in a while; that is absolutely true. But, ALL THE TIME? And not just from one rare person, but from EVERYBODY? so that it is the NORM?– What is that about?_crazyshit__by_a_kid_at_heart-d75zpvv

what is it about, in Eugene, when your exterminator, tells you you have termites, and charges you at least $1000 to get rid of them – – and few years later, a different exterminator tells you, “what you are describing is not termites.

–Because you also find out, the old plumber you have been using, has been “rigging” your bathroom plumbing, so the toilet will go crazy, ever 6 months,and you have to call him for work—until you start literally watching him work, and he gets angry, and dumps you, –and the new plumber charges at least $300. to fix all the damage yer good old plumber ignored or did, and finally REALLY FIXED IT.—but in the former time your water bill went thru the roof. icon_confused

YOU ARE NOT PARANOID–YOU KEEP GETTING LIES AND BAD EMPLOYEES, AND CROOKED PLUMBERS!! Angies’ list did not help–you need a real human grapevine, friends, to find out WHO is a crooked-tradesman, AND who IS NOT!!–mwahaha

“you are getting a sinus infection every 90 days now!”Carolyn said to me, as we went to get ice cream after I had to go to the urgent care with another sinus infection. paranoid

“Well,” I said, in a lot of pain, “my doctors are worse than they used to be.  I used to be able to go to the ear nose and throat specialists, in San Francisco, many years ago and my insurance was better; my DR.S were better!.. Now it’s cutthroat, to make a pun. There’s no getting around it. There used to be better medication, nasal spray, for bad off sinuses I used to be able to get it through my insurance; not anymore! I don’t think they even make it anymore,, or, my Medicare refuses to pay for it.”faint

I was going to have to go back to the old ear nose and throat Dr., who I was actually lucky I could get at all, considering my stupid overly cut up Medicare. And I had had to find him myself,, as usual, my peace health Dr. could never find me any good specialists. I usually had to find them myself, through friends. That’s how I found my dentist, that’s how I found my ear nose and throat Dr. My Peace Health  Internest did not have a clue.Hang_in_there_by_TheKingArthurWonder

And most often, most of the good ones did not have any openings for Medicare patients. You had to take the dregs._crazyshit__by_a_kid_at_heart-d75zpvv

“I talked to disabled people who used to have Medicare years ago?” said Carolyn, as we went along “They said it was a really lot better then, and now it’s cat shit.all the doctors used to be fine with taking Medicare,, because it paid better. And now they run the other direction from senior citizens or disabled people, and they’re all leaving the state because they hate the socialized medicine so much here.so it’s not just the HMOs that are worse. It’s also that MEDICARE used to be a lot better and had more money in it, and now it’s a death threat.”I nodded my head; I had heard the same thing.mwahaha

“maybe that’s going to be the death knell for Medicare,” I said later.”that’s what they do in Canada, and in Britain;; in those countries, the socialized medicine is so bad, people are forced to go to private clinics and pay money. – – If they want to live. Sometimes they even came to the United States for surgery, they couldn’t get it in Britain!and they pay cash!Saber_Fight_by_BurgerBunny

“Maybe paying cash for medical care is the future. Otherwise, you won’t get a doctor.” It’s already impossible to find a doctor,to get an appt.,and you gotta resort to Drop-In Clinics(who’s businesses are booming) if you get sick._allmymoney__by_cmotes-d5l17kq

I knew one thing; if I got anything SERIOUS, like cancer, I would automatically DIE.There was no question about it; I would have to pick my favorite very poisonous plant,tree,bush,or flower, or Brush-Killer, and swallow it whole. –And those are everywhere; you just gotta look them up. _omgpineappleplz__by_5P_emotes

I could not get my Medicare to pay for real stuff,my doc said; so I just keep getting sick. When I go back to him, I’ll have to say,”Doc, you know that expensive medicine you buy,to keep off sinusitus? Could You give ME a prescription for it? I ‘ll settle for eating only every other day,and I need to lose weight anyhow–but dying from SINUSITUS? I would never be able to live that down–“suicide

“WHY COMCAST IS SUCH A FUCKING SHIT; MADE ME PAY LAST MONTH’S BILL TWICE!!—IN EUGENE OREGON”

963825

(WE WISH SATIRE WAS OUR MIDDLE NAME!!)

YES, I wish I did not have Comcast Internet and cable TV; I would give anything to have competition come to this LOUSY  Valley! Even a small provider and a very independent provider would help us get out of this rat race called COMCAST XFINITY!!  IT SUCKS TO HELL!!  they charged me TWICE ON MY BILL LAST MONTH!! BECAUSE I paid my bill online, and they told me it was paid. And then they called me up and were about ready to cut off my service.

It started last month, I could not call them up over the phone, to pay my bill. They would charge me a lot of money to do it. So they called me I could go online and pay my whole bill, and that’s exactly what I get  pay – and now they just called me up Sunday night, and told me they were going to cut off my service!

I have a really good idea; why don’t we get rid of all oil, that powers all the electricity, everywhere in the United States, and dump it all. No TV, no Internet, no phone no XFinity, , and no more bills from Comcast. I would really like to do this now. I think I’m going to call my bank, and stop that huge big Mac I just paid them, because they can’t keep track of their billing from last month..

that is the only way I think is going to get settled; let’s just creaturechallengesDUMP ALL ELECTRICITY and TECHNOLOGY, COMPUTERS, the Internet, let’s just dump it all.” Let’s go back to the 20th century! What we didn’t have all this crap and these huge corporations fucking us up all the time! I would really like that! You probably would too!_fuckthis__by_crakaemotes

if you’re a senior and _crazyshit__by_a_kid_at_heart-d75zpvvyou have to deal with all this bull shipped you probably feel like ripping out all your bill and not pay them anymore.. And that’s a very good idea. Go ahead and do it. Somebody has to stand up to these asshole sooner or later and stop paying money to them!really_really_baffled_by_cookiemagik-d48bhap

Now let’s see if I can stand do that without also getting a  crowbar, and smashing my TV,  and my standing computer, and my monitor! This new monitor is so much worse than the old one, yet had very restricted colors. And you know what they did to Java from Oracle? You can’t get it any longer, logically, and correctly, to run the applets of some of the major or websites to do artwork on. So there is no mechanism to run the appletzs! Some Japanese is going to have to invent some again!Fairy_Transformation_by_Zikes

who do think you  think does the really good technical stuff? Not white people. Not  Americans; Asians and Asia! JAPAN. I don’t care what anyone says about Japan the Japanese are geniuses! They know what they’re doing – even if they don’t breed very much! Since when is not breeding a lot, a bad thing? We wish it would really catch on over the whole planet.– _99bottles__by_synfull

– send all those poor single Japanese, over to America, we definitely will help them breed!.that’s one thing America has still got –  testosterone! And if I remember rightly the guys after World War II really liked Japanese women. I don’t blame them.sometimes I see an Asian  guy really looks good, and I feel the same way ._paradox__by_rnx

but back to my weird and nonfunctioning life in Eugene Oregon. I have to live here I don’t have any choice.  Often I feel very  “ethnically challenged.” Meaning, I no longer have a roommate who is half Japanese and half  Mexican.and I sure don’t fucking want Comcast as my Internet and TV provider!disco_fever_by_kath602-d3gsalr

So if this blog never gets read by anybody, I really don’t care; as long as it bugs Comcast out of their fucking PANTIES!betterdancerpictact21

“WHY YOU CAN’T FIND FREE MOVIES OR FREE TV ON GOOGLE AND SEARCH ENGINES—TSK TSK!!!–IN EUGENE OR”

neonnoodles127393-v1

(SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!)

YES, we wish that money was our middle name, but that’s not going to happen this late in life – – especially in America – now. But if you haven’t been able to find things on Google lately, especially when you try to find free TV and free movies online,, let us tell you why..

suicide

now, supposedly Google and other search engines like it, although there are not other search engines like Google,, are supposed to show you what is actually on the Internet – right? No, wrong.  If you get on Google, search, and you’re really looking for something like “websites with free TV shows,”  or “websites with free movies” you’re never going to see those websites. Google has decided that unless you pay for everything on the web, they won’t show you anything – – usually unless it’s one of their sponsors.free_shrugs____plz_by_sparklydest-d4qm3si

this is because Google is no longer impartial search engine.  And you may have to go out and find other search engines, if you want to find things that Google does not approve of. And they don’t approve of free movies or free TV, and websites that are not their sponsors. Does this sound nasty to you?

nerdygeekydweeb_gift_by_otohime0394-d4v3c35

Yes, it does. Soon Google will have you paying, eventually, literally to use their search engine don’t think they haven’t been thinking about it. But why should Google suddenly get really moral, moralistic, and decide they’re not going to help you find any free movies are any free TV online? Is it really because they don’t want to hurt their copyrights?there__s_something_behind_you_by_converse_kidd-d3eckxg

no, that isn’t true either.after all, didn’t they go over to the middle east, and encourage something called the  “Arab Spring”?that was their own moral decision.moneygif3c61d38d617e7e24f45c7ed92473b0da (1)

In fact most of the search engines like Google, will not show you exactly what you want you to see – – like cheaper objects to buy – – that’s because their corporation run.  And now you know what  and who owns the Internet – – CORPORATIONS. Yes, that’s right so if you’re looking for little independent, even maybe a little ill legal, websites that show you free TV or free movies, Google is going to pretend they don’t exist. I would suggest you go use another search engine like duck duck go – – or maybe Yahoo.. But I wouldn’t try that last one with great success.b278100686fa02f8c779e2626006b33e

For example, I will have you know now, that there are several free movie websites, and some of them are called “Primewire. ” however, if you try to Google Primewire you won’t really get prime wire.you will get a whole lot of websites who CLAIM to give you free movies or free TV, and once you get on there,  they are not free. OH, DEAR, what could be going on? It’s called consumerism. A powerful lot of the Internet is now being run by huge corporations. And one of the biggest ways they play you, is to pretend gave you free search engines that are not commercial. – –Most_of_my_DA_family__Part_Two_by_forestsofazarath

Which is absolutely bull shit. I can prove that. If you go on the business websites  of many commercial search engines, you will find out that those search engines are for the advertising people and the companies, not the consumer. They are there to make money for them – – and  increasingly we find, on the web,  more and more big companies and big corporations that are trying to make money off of you, not telling you what is really on the Internet anymore.free-davatars

this is not a lot of fun; not when it is very late Saturday night, and you are trying to refind the primewire website, that you used to watch free movies or free TV off of – – and it’s not functioning anymore  or it is not being listed on web searches anymore.like the fact that there are several  websites that are all called “primewire”and you’re trying to look through them. (Although you may be like MOI, who probably has downloaded very nasty little buggers lately, and still have  not gotten rid of them all – – on my computer itself.)beethoven_by_angelratdesigns

you must know by now that your hardware and your software is just not perfect. Not only is not perfect, it’s getting written worse and worse by stupider and stupider software designers.TRY to find exactly what you’re looking for on a Windows platform, and the only thing it will try to find is very limited stuff on your computer  – – if you’re lucky at all. Remember when Windows used to be able to search for files and for words in files? You remember the little dog who was animated, on the side who actually did find your words and files for you?.ichadoggi

not only can  Dragon NaturallySpeaking not understand you, when there is any other kind of noise or sound in the room with you, and their software has gotten much worse according to experts, but also Windows it self has gotten much worse – – and you can’t find a God damn thing on your Windows,if you don’t have some very accurate kind of filing system written down, for, that you know where everything is literally  by keeping a notebook on it.– – or else you’re trying some very tricky software, that claims it can keep accurate track of all the information ON WINDOWS.abandon_all_hope_sign_by_sanguineepitaph-d36w8mi

I actually have not heard of anything like that; don’t get hopeful.ROFL_T_SPAZZ_by_Czathero

in fact, if you feel badly about not having a free Internet anymore, how are you able  to avoid shopping with all those big corporations on the Internet? The answer is – – you can’t. And, you won’t be able to –  more and more. Music_vs_Reading_by_spring_sky

That’s because there is no such thing as a free lunch, and there is no such thing as a FREE INTERNET.somebody has to pay for all that machinery, and all that electricity and power. Are YOU going to pay for it all? Well you are going to do it indirectly. – – By getting charged by all those big companies and big corporations, because they are going to stick all of their commercials, all of their advertisements, and all of their products, constantly right in front of you no matter what you do.steaming..

let’s finish this quickly, and take it from me, who can’t even find the same website, using Google, on a Saturday night, that actually has the same exact name.—and should be there. Of course it might be down, but what about all the other websites full of “free TV  and free movies”? You won’t be able to find them either. Not that easily at all!that’s because, all these big commercial giants on the Internet don’t want you to find anything free.fire.gifcampfire

HEAVEN FORBID THAT!!!SOMETHING FOR NOTHING? You’re not a politician, after all! You’re not CONGRESS, with its own really nice health-care system!!  Google and those big giant money-grubbers are making a determined effort, never to let you,. the public, ever get a free lunch!! The truth is, now that all the BIG MONEY is on the Net, all the Big Guys everywhere, will OWN the Net!!(If they don’t already.)groucho

I’d like to end with one idea; you know about “free software” that little independents offer, to try to keep the Net somewhat free–like VPNS and “Tunnel-bear”. WHAT WE REALLY NEED, NOW, is some kind of “free search engine.” —for free stuff!!!–all the free or even CHEAP-FREE on the Net!! I’d buy stuff off there, as long as it also carried all the FREE STUFF OR FREE WEBSITES ONLINE!!   YES, I would!!expressionmehm_by_ledmaiden-d3jwdgq

It would be worth it; just to see that there’s finally a “liberated search engine,” that isn’t only after another billion in advertising bucks!!–And one that was really TRYING TO FIND what you really wanted!!–and not trying to HIDE IT!!   YEAH, the OPPOSITE OF GOOGLE!!!revenge_of_the_tard_by_meninasuitcase

are there any techies out there, responding to we consumers? “A FREE OR EVEN PARTIALLY-FREE SEARCH ENGINE!!”   EVEN PARTLY FREE!!  with the free stuff and sites, no one wants to show, and everyone wants to FIND!!?????robots_join_forces__d_by_heyitsjulie
