“Treasury Department” Its just a date…

I was listening to NPR this morning on the way to the bike trail. Someone that was being interviewed, I did not catch the name…I just turned up the radio in the Mustang and was too busy trying to stay alive on Route 95 here in Connecticut, said that this so-called deadline date was something the “Treasury Department” said just to have a date to get things done…He said there is plenty of money and not to worry. The country is not going to go bankrupt and everyone will be paid as usual…I wasn’t born yesterday and knowing our leaders are a bunch of liars I choose to believe this is what is going to happen…I hope the discussion, lies and fighting between our insensitive greedy leaders goes on beyond the date just to see what a bunch of fools we have in Washington…Including our, not really mine but your president…. I’m glad he is not my responsibility That’s for sure.. They are like a bunch of teenagers…Its embarrassing…..

                   This is a conglomeration of things that have been on my mind for a long time…. Like I said in the past, this stuff bothers me…. It must be all the negative changes and how greedy or just down right ignorant our leaders are…When it comes right down to it, the world today revolves around oil, drugs, both legal and illegal and surprisingly, something you don’t hear much about, water. Not necessarily in that order. I notice the price of gas going up again and not one person in Washington is saying anything about it…Here where I live, the State gas tax is almost a dollar a gallon, The price for regular gas is $4.15 plus a gallon. So not only is the State of Connecticut raping us of our savings they are doing it retroactively with the State income tax back to January first 2011. As far as water goes I’ll bet you have a filter on your faucet at home or you drink bottled water. In any event, you use some kind filter before you drink water. Its never straight out of the tap. I know people don’t like hearing this but sooner or later we will run out of fresh drinking water. It will take a while but we will run out. Amy just died of a drug overdose in London and I know personally of individuals who will die of alcoholism or drug addiction within the next 2 years…The disease of Addiction is on the rise more and more each day. Prescription drugs are being abused also. Not to mention the side effects of some of these drugs. Its all about money and greed and again not one person in Washington cares or will do anything about it. There are no discussions or even, “Those” deals in Washington on how to make oil companies reduce the price of gas so the U.S. economy will stabilize and survive. There are no deals whatsoever for anything out here! Everything is priced to the max! Everything is too expensive! He talks about the American people feeding their families…What planet is this guy on??? America can’t borrow enough money to fix anything. It doesn’t take a genius to know that if everyone has to buy gas to go to work there will be nothing left to buy anything else.… I can’t imagine how people do it. Think about it!… How much of your pay goes to the Arabs and the oil company’s? No one has even bothered to talk about winters in the Northeast. If you tried to run your home or business on credit or with all this borrowed money you know what’s going to happen. If you are living on credit, it will not work. The end for you is near…Borrowing money just never works…Why? Because sooner or later you have to PAY IT BACK! How much of this borrowed money is for foreign aid? Its disgusting! They NEVER pay it back and it just goes to all the corrupt leaders. This country is paying for everything around world including all the illegal’s in this country…Think about this…There wouldn’t be so many illegal’s here if they were happier in their homeland we pay for. Its absolute insanity… I have seen quite a few presidents in my life and I am guilty of laughing at Mr. Bush but this Obama guy tops the list of being the most incompetent. He has no idea of how to run things or manage anything. The spending must stop. Its like he is trying to provoke people into anarchy. Hey, lets face it, he is pissing off a lot of people. Washington is out of control and its getting worse each day. The Terrorist’s are winning……

“They All Took the Apple”

Can you tell by listening to the news that everyone is really angry at greedy Millionaires and Billionaires? Check out the shaving cream incident in England on Murdoch. Think about this…He said “he wasn’t responsible for what his trusted employees did“….. Huh…Was CA responsible for what happened to her daughter? Wait, stop right there, I would rather start with our corrupt politicians in Washington. These days people are even more angry with them. The interesting part is they know people are angry and now they just don’t care….It all started about 100 years ago when a cop walking his beat went into a market in a busy city and the owner gave him an apple. Technically, that fine officer should have said “I’m sorry sir but I can’t accept gifts?”. Then the officer should have walked out the door…..Why, you ask? Its only an apple……Its simple! …The moment he took that apple he owed the grocer a favor! …..That is WTF is going on now! …..All of your trusted leaders in Washington owe somebody something!….No one can do anything without making a deal. Its all about special interest groups. Sound familiar? It even sounds shady. Like I’ll do this if you give me that. It will never end..Its always about paying somebody off..No one has said the people need this. The people want that… Having said all that, Now I will say and I feel very confident that all the politicians in Washington and the 50 States are corrupt. Including our President. Surprised?…..Why? They don’t care! Its just business as usual….deal, deals and more deals… They all take graft in one form or another. They all smell of dirty money and gifts of ill gotten gains. Find one that doesn’t lie. I dare you to find one, just one that hasn't taken anything. Find just one that you can trust. You can’t, they don’t exist….Can you find one that you can actually understand what they are saying? Find just one that isn’t for himself. Find one that isn’t a Millionaire. Hey, try to find one that flies commercial…Find one that doesn’t have a limo and a driver. Find one that doesn’t have a life time pension and life time health care. These are the same bunch of thieves that are trying to screw up Social Security and Medicare. All around the world corruption has been made legal because of the manipulation of words and the laws that were made by these same corrupt men and woman. Cross the line over to Politics and its every man for himself. No wonder they run for office. C’mon, do you really think Linda will spend all those millions to be a Senator so she can help people? If you believe that I’ve got this great Corporate Jet to sell you…They would steal your soul if you don’t keep and eye on it…I dare you to find one of these fools that is for the people…I double dare you to find one that didn’t take that apple…..

“Cheney Mason’s Finest Moment”

     In this priceless photo is Cheney Mason from Orlando Florida in one of his most finest moments. He is one of Casey Anthony’s defense attorneys during the celebration a few hours after the trial. It seems like he is signaling the press and telling everyone outside that they came out number one at the trial. Ms. Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her daughter…Now it seems that Mr. Mason and his family have been getting death threats by phone at their home because of a Facebook post….I wonder why? He seems like such a nice guy…Below is the link to the threat story from in Orlando. All the information and more is on the page…I think Mr. Mason should get a humanitarian award for humility and kindness.

“I Have Seen the Good and the Bad”

Robert De Niro in the movie “15 Minutes” said, “Sometimes you gotta go away in order to come back“. Actually I’m not back, I never went anywhere and I’m not at a loss for words. It’s the words I have floating around in my mind that are always negative. I realize that I’m not alone but I don’t like the way I feel about what is happening and I can’t stand what I write. Its like, its worse when I see on the page. I start writing about good things and it always comes out bad. I don’t like the way I have been feeling and I am tired of writing about the craziness in this country and around the world. The thing is, I am old enough to have seen the good and the bad. I have lived it. Now, its mostly all bad and out of control and because I have been there I know what the future holds. I feel its gone too far and I don’t think it can be repaired. I don’t think anybody wants to repair it. I am not going to offer any solutions or even say what the problems are. I guess I’m just going to watch. Its all I can do…I have to stop feeling bad and let it go but its not easy….

“Nine Deadly Words Used By A Woman”

I’m still at a loss for words so I thought I’d submit some words of wisdom written by a wise man who probably learned the hard way…
1) Fine
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
2) Five Minutes
If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
3) Nothing
This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
4) Go Ahead
This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!
5) Loud Sigh
This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)
6) That’s Okay
This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
7) Thanks
A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re welcome’ . that will bring on a ‘whatever’).
8 ) Whatever
Is a woman’s way of saying F– YOU!
9) Don’t worry about it, I got it
Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ For the woman’s response refer to #3.

"Favorite News Shows"

I really don't watch local news except for the traffic and weather. I mute the rest because its all about finding the most shocking and disturbing things humans can do to each other for ratings. There are too many boring commercials of things I wouldn't even consider purchasing. I guess the CBS evening news, the CBS show "60 Minutes", CBS's Sunday morning and NPR are my favorites and I try not to miss them. For me they are the most informative, helpful and real. There is even some good news at times where people can actually smile. The network morning shows are really infomercials selling real celebs and want-a-be celebs. This type of Media has turned into people standing on the sidewalk watching glorified news anchors. The worst being GMA with that smug older lady who has that "I'm better than you attitude" and a weather man who just happens to like having a bunch of screaming teenage girls around him. What's up with that? The little lawyer guy with the long last name is OK. When I happen to have this on I see there are times when he seems uncomfortable being around that crew....

"Heuristically Artificial Intelligence" HAL

OK, are you ready for this? We all know we are being watched by security cameras in all the stores. Its just in case one of us decides to “steal” something. We know that we cannot wear sunglasses in a bank because of the security cameras. I guess sunglasses are like a disguise. The NSA (National Security Agency) is listening to random or what they call “suspicious” cell phone calls. Everything we do on the internet is spot checked by the police and the government. They check (Facebook and Twitter) for key words and pictures and who knows what else. I have purposely written about bombs in my blog just see what would happen? Nothing did. They must have said, “I’m harmless“. With a last name like Ferrari he ain’t bombing anything. Now if my name was Mohammed or Abdul I wouldn’t have tried it. Racial profiling by names? OK, OK that’s a story for another day. We are practically strip searched at the airports. The only ones who don’t have this done are the rich and our Politicians of coarse who fly private jets. Does “Corporate jet tax”, sound familiar?…Isn’t that the tax they want to cut? Seriously, at airports they are x-raying our private parts and touching us in places that if we were somewhere else we would be calling it sexual assault. Now, there is a new threat! Explosives implanted in breasts, stomachs or up the rectum. I can‘t wait to see them searching for that. Its worth a trip to the airport just to watch. The most sick by far is hand searching a 6 year old girl at the airport. You need to see that, click on the link. Well, guess what? Do you recall hearing about the “Drone” aircraft they are using. These are pilot less airplanes operated from the ground by a computer. They are using them to spy on or to bomb in all our wars and “Not wars” all over the world? You know, all those wars they say NATO but they really mean the U.S. in disguise…Like the in the wars they say when NATO troops are killed they really mean the U.S. military…Right, those wars. Soon, if not all already they will be using Drone aircraft to spy on us here in the United States. So when you see a sign on the road “Speed checked by aircraft” You had better believe it…They? And I don’t know who “they” are but they are thinking about building large Drone aircraft to fly air freight and this is opening the door for much more. Remember HAL, (Heuristically Artificial Intelligence) from the movie 2001? Well, kids its beginning to happen. Laugh all you want but first really, really think about it.

“Prisoner Of Her Mind”

Everyone is freaking out over the decision in the Casey Anthony trial… She’s not innocent but she’s not guilty of murdering her daughter. I have been watching this case live on the internet on and off for the past 3 weeks…I agree with the decision. I don’t agree that she didn’t do it. Something happened and her daughter died as a result. As a parent she was responsible for what happened her daughter, its plain and simple. Now she will be living in a fake celebrity bubble and become a millionaire because of this tragedy. That will be her downfall. Now she will live in the prison of public scrutiny for years. Can someone like her survive that? How long will it take for her new world to collapse? I believe it would have better for her to be in a real prison. Now she is the prisoner of her own mind knowing that at the cost of her daughters life she is where she is….As we all know or should know the fame she has now will be her downfall. We will wait and see

"Casey Anthony"

He was disorganized. He was grasping at straws but he had a point. He just doesn't sound smart saying it. His presentation isn't from Yale or Harvard. Its like too much information for him to handle. Maybe its just me but I doubt it. I kinda feel sorry for him. Like the little kid at bat with 2 outs, two strikes and the bases loaded against a great pitcher trying to hit a home run and win the game...I just described the lead defense attorney for Casey Anthony. Still, there are things missing like there is no father. It seems the victim, Calee had no father. No one ever mentioned a dad and no one came forward to claim responsibility. I’m surprised no one came forward. Not even to become famous. That leads me to believe he is dead. They implied Cindy, Casey’s mom did it by accident by leaving the pool ladder down and she drowned. After discovering the body, Casey’s dad hid the little girls body down the street in some woods. Interesting but they didn't say too much about Casey not saying her daughter was missing for 31 days…...The other Casey defense attorney said to the jury "Find her innocent because they, the prosecution didn't prove she did it". That doesn't mean she didn't do it. It just means they couldn't prove she did. These days unless you actually see someone kill someone, lawyers will manipulate and twist words to the point where you don’t know who to believe. Especially if you are rich or want to become famous…  In any event, a beautiful little girl, 3 years old is dead. She was found 15 houses down the street from the Anthony house in some woods by a meter man going to the bathroom while waiting for his boss to pick him up. The decision to convict or acquit supposedly goes to jury today…

Taking a few notes"

On taxes and predictions…Osama Now Deader said “we will hit the Americans where it hurts the most. In their pocket book, in their economy”. Then they commenced to destroy the World Trade Center. A glimpse at what we have these days? Outrageous gas prices, higher taxes, no jobs, lay-offs and crime. Not just ordinary crime if there is such a thing but the most sickening and offensive things one human can do to another human. The worst cases of child neglect and abuse since the middle ages. The killing of innocent bystanders in convenience store robberies where the take is sometimes less that $100 dollars. Politicians quitting because of sexual deviations and corruption is at an all time high and getting worse as I write this…

On Casey Anthony…This twit never thought of the consequences of her behavior. Just did what she did not caring about anything except herself. Her family is ruined. She's been in jail in solitary confinement for 3 years and now more than likely will be convicted of killing her daughter, Caylee. That beautiful little girl...They are now reading and introducing into evidence her father's suicide note. He didn’t commit suicide but wanted too. I could tell you what is going on in this trial but its something you have to see for yourself. “Tell the truth, So help you God”, is a joke. Its truly unbelievable...

On Facebook……Actually I put this disclaimer on my Facebook profile page… A while ago I had home page problems with Facebook. One day I opened my page to find 3 strange large pictures that I did not put there. They were across the top of the page. I tried everything to delete and get rid of them but to no avail. Each day the odd pictures would change. I could not understand why they were there. I would never put anything as asinine there. They were boring and ridiculous. I wrote to Facebook at least 10 times to help me clear this up. They did nothing. I received no response. I changed the settings, I tried everything, nothing worked. The days went on. I waited for a response. My thought was, they just don’t care. Trust me, they don’t care unless an FBI agent or a Lawyer calls on them with a Lawsuit because some poor kid was raped or murdered because they put to much information on their Facebook profile page. I tried everything so I did what I needed to. I opened a new page and I changed my name to the longer version. If you read this and are confused by my full name please call me Lar or LJ……… I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

On the Pledge…I remember the day when they added the words “Under God” to the pledge.” My teacher, a Nun, (Sisters of Mercy) stood us up and asked us to face the flag. The Stars and stripes, 48 stars at the time was hanging on a pole on the door casing about 10 feet up. I was really little so it could have been less. We said the Pledge every day without fail before class started...Here is a something you didn’t know…. We held our little arms straight out and up at an angle like the Hitler salute. I remember when they changed it to hand over your heart. We were told to pledge the flag “Under God” because so many men and woman through the years have died for our country and he flag represents the country. If we allow them to change “Under God” The next thing you know they will want to change the words of the National Anthem....The flag lessen from the Nuns must have left an impression because I was only 6 at the time…
