"Alcohol and Drug Addiction"

Re:   To Lindsey Lohan's continuing problem with Alcohol and Drugs....

It looks like Lindsey is one of those who think they can control their drinking and drug use. Some actually feel that they can cure themselves by not drinking or using drugs for short periods of time. Let me make one thing perfectly clear to all you naysayers. If you are a Drug addict or an Alcoholic. There is no CURE for Alcoholism or Drug addiction! Its how the word cure is used. To cure someone of something means that the disease will never reoccur. For example. There is no cure for Cancer. There is no cure for Diabetes. Well, there is no cure for Addiction! People like Chris Prentiss who claim to have a "Cure" are frauds. These criminals are liars of the lowest form and prey on the desperately sick and addicted who in a last resort will spend any amount of money to relieve themselves of the desire and compulsion to drink or use drugs. Alcoholism and Drug addiction is disease like no other. It is a deadly disease that tells you are not sick and that its OK to drink or use drugs again after you stop for a short period of time. The truth is, "Total abstinence" for the rest of your life is the only way to ease the craving and desire to drink or use drugs. There are a few programs that will help you. Alcoholics Anonymous being the most popular. Did you ever quit smoking only later to smoke one cigarette and find yourself smoking like before only more? If you have stopped drinking and using drugs only later to pick up a drink or use a drug the symptoms will be 100 times worse than they were before. Your chances are slim for recovery and only if you are very lucky you might recover after that first use... Usually people will start drinking because of peer pressure. After a while it becomes the thing to do to fit in and feel good about doing questionable things. That will be a false courage....The alcohol commercials are proving that. The goal for them is to get you hooked and make money. They are drug dealers! Alcohol is a drug just like Nicotine. They want to start you drinking. The younger the better. For woman, your inhibitions will disappear. A while ago before you started drinking you might have thought about what your parents taught you or what the consequences would be because of your behavior. When woman drink morals disappear and they lose that healthy caution and will do things they wouldn’t normally do. They will become prey. This will go on until someone suggests to try a joint or smoke some grass.
   Contrary to popular belief, to an addictive personally Marijuana is a stepping stone drug and will lead to the use of heavier drugs like prescription drugs, crack cocaine or heroin. At that point its only be a matter of time. You will think using drugs will be easier than drinking and it will make you feel high faster.. With woman its all about emotions, feelings and feeling good, so off you go. With a guy its all about being shy and lacking self-confidence. Alcohol and drugs will allow you do things that you see on TV and that usually leads to taking chances then pain or death.. For some, addiction is a slow process. If you just drink it could take years but when you add drugs to the mix it won’t take long. Some are lucky enough to hit bottom before they do too much damage to themselves, family and friends. For others it will take longer and the longer it takes the bigger the odds that the person will find jail or death. In any event if you drink and use drugs your life expectancy will be shortened...   If you have any doubts about drinking, listen because those doubts are your warning sign! Please don't start.

Love…  Sometimes I wonder what that emotion really is and what are “Mixed Emotions?“ I think I might have that. What is the difference between Love for family or Love for friends? Is that Love for a mate really Love or is it Lust? I realize today that I can say I love you to a person and mean it but not really like the person. Its hard to explain so I won’t even try. I will only say it has to do with humility, regret, resentment and sorrow. So far I’ve learned that there are many different kinds of love. How about the love for someone that hurt me in the past. Can I let the past go because of time and because I’ve grown and have learned a few life lessons? What I feel sometimes is the kind of love you feel when you “Half love” someone. If you can do such a thing? I describe it as a little stronger than like but not quite as much as really like. Its in between very few expectations and It doesn’t matter. As long as I don’t set myself up for a disaster. I realize I am treading in a very dangerous place. Why would I do that, you may ask? I guess its because I can and because you only live once. I always say I would never knowingly walk in a Mine field. Well, maybe if I’m really careful, just this once.

"The American Time Bomb"

They returned to Washington from all over the country in their Corporate Jets from a "Thanksgiving vacation". Talking about a "Fiscal Cliff" in Washington. I call it a "Ticking Time bomb"...Will it be the same "Backroom Deals" and excuses or just band-aid repairs? Is there anybody left in Washington that is honest with the guts enough to make some hard decisions?
       Take a look at the clock. They don't have much time. The United States is imploding as I write this.... How long will it take?

Comment.......I was right...Its the same BACKROOM POLITICS, DEALS and MORE LIES......The clock is STILL ticking....

" Is this Living?"

When morals decline and good men do nothing, evil flourishes. A society unwilling to learn from past is doomed. We must never forget our history.   J. Edgar Hoover

Do you remember a long time ago when we seen something bad happen to someone we would say, Hey, be careful it could happen to you. Well, the way things are going these days we say, its going to happen to you sooner or later even if you are careful. Try not to become collateral damage. I realize that human behavior has been questionable for a thousand years and people have been wondering why people do what they do since the beginning of time. Things have escalated in the past few years and its my opinion that what is going on in this country these days is because of anger and rage. None of us is bullet proof to the craziness and insanity going on in the world today...We have come to the point here in the United States depending where you live that its too dangerous to venture outside. I realize it has always been somewhat like this, more or less but it seems like its much worse now. Ask yourself a few questions. Do you know who your neighbors are? Do you trust them? Are you sure? Would you let them baby sit your 6 year old daughter or give them the key to your house to watch while you go on vacation? I'll bet you are thinking about that? Has your home ever been invaded or broken into. Watch out there country dwellers you are on the list now. You are not untouchable anymore. I have never heard of that happening till a few years ago. Even you out there in the country in your 2 Million dollar home is not safe. Has there ever been a suicide in your family? No, but I'll bet you know someone who has? Has divorce hit your family or your kids or nieces and nephews? Do you smoke cigarettes? Could you stop if you wanted to?...Right, try it.. How about Alcoholism or Drug Addiction? Do you really know what your son or daughter would do to get the drink or drug he or she needs when craving it? Do you have an Alcoholic or Drug addict in your family? Read about addiction and learn. Have you been touched by those deceases yet...Notice I said yet...Have you felt the misery of a death by car accident on the highways these days or by the horrendous weather we are having? Has a family member or you or even a friend ever been raped or murdered? How about losing your job or your home? Have you ever had your car repossessed? Have you ever been watched so much you are starting to get paranoid? Your cell phone is really a hand held computer that will tell everyone everything. Are you or your kids addicted to your cell phone. Do you go back and get it if you forget it at home? Could you go a day without it? Try that. Those cards the Supermarket uses. The ones you scan to buy something. Right, even they know what you are doing all the time. Did you ever wonder why you need a plastic card with a bar code to buy almost anything? How about your kids. Have they left the family home to go out in the world only to come back to live with you again? Are they saving for their future and retirement? Hell, are you saving for your future and retirement? The way things are going now you won't be able to retire until you are 70. That's only if Social Security exists or has any money left. Will you be healthy enough to work until you are 70? All those wonderful politicians you voted for that spend millions to get elected or reelected are robbing you blind. Ask them about their retirement and health care. Don't believe me? Just wait, you will see! Remember when you knew the cop on the beat by his first name? The police today are more Military than anything else. They all shave their heads and wear bullet proof vests and combat fatigues. They carry automatic weapons like in a the army. Police departments of today now have haz mat teams and a bomb squads. You haven't lived until you have been evacuated from a building because of a bomb threat or a mysterious white powder scare. Kids are being shot in schools everyday somewhere in this country. And no its not just the ghettos. Oh, can I still say that? Think about that? Have your children ever been in a locked down school because of a white powder scare?  In a High School in Enfield Connecticut last week some girls peed in some cup cake batter, baked them and gave them to their class mates...(Link below)  You are being scrutinized, searched and watched everywhere you go. From the highways and stores to Facebook and Google. Now they want to look at your E-mail with out a warrant and there isn't a Blessed thing you or I can do about it. From those horrible reality shows on TV, which are not reality by the way to the movie violence, it is the worst I have ever seen. Promiscuity is normal today and modesty is nonexistent. There is nothing left to the imagination.  As the years, months and days go by the odds of something I just described happening to you increase. So if you think you were careful before, brother you haven't seen anything yet....Its all because of greed and the constant desire to take your money...They will do anything to steal something from you or sell you something. Life today is only about the numbers.

"Americans Rush to Stores on 'Black Friday"

Americans Rush to Stores on 'Black Friday'

 The U.S. holiday shopping season has arrived.  Across the country, Americans are swarming retail stores in a yearly event known as "Black Friday."
Black Friday - the day after America's Thanksgiving holiday - is traditionally the year's busiest shopping day.

 Comment..........This isn't as true as it sounds... Its what they want you to believe..but in comparison to the amount to the people that live here, the number of people that went to the store was minimal. I live here and if If I wrote this story I would have said that the number of shoppers dropped and the retailers that stayed opened lost money this holiday...Black Friday did not work this year. Not everyone in America can afford to this kind of shopping. Contrary to popular belief around the world most of us are not crazy. Things are really bad here and it really looks like no one can afford much of anything...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone... I truly hope everyone has a wonderful day...

"Four More Years"

You knew I couldn't stay silent for long didn't you? I mean I have to say something..Still its like beating a dead horse but now its back to the same old stuff. No changes but more spending. Yesterday I heard Connecticut is 1.8 BILLION dollars in debt...Not Million but Billion..Did I just hear someone say, Where did all that money go"?...What is wrong with that picture?....Well, now in Washington its four more years of the same or worse. More than likely, the worse. Lets take a look at what you elected or in this case reelected. Not only America's first Black President but he is from Illinois, the most corrupt State in the Union with four of its Governors and various political figures all convicted of crimes against the people. (Can I still say that?) I always wonder about the ones who didn't get caught? He's elected yes but he still can't do anything worth while, not that he would. Why? I don't think he wants too and because the majority of Congress are Republicans. He's not well liked on the hill, to say the least. He is someone who thinks spending is the only solution. Just keep in mind all those Trillions of dollars have to be repaid. Its just like all your maxed out credit cards. You need to pay all that money back. Its the same as if you borrowed money from a bank only with a huge interest rate. You knew that didn't you? Sometimes I wonder about that? Your President has never heard the quote "Money cannot buy happiness" He is someone who the Arabs, big oil, and a host of, God only knows who, have in their pocket via campaign donations. I mean what else could it be? They made it legal for themselves to do that...Huh...You don't have to have a brain to see what is going on. Only now you have a lame duck President who now has nothing to lose. Its sort of open season on anything, what difference does it make? Can't you see that grin now. Obama is a friend (cohort) of Jessie Jackson Jr. (wow, are they really staying silent on that issue, I'll bet they are banned from talking about that in the oval office..) who for the past four years has been under investigation for trying to buy Obama's senate seat and stealing campaign funds, you know buying a $40,000 Rolex watch with your money. Hmmm I wonder who that was for. Wasn't that enough warning of what is going on? Jr. and his (team) of Lawyers is negotiating with the FBI if you can believe that. Jackson hasn't been to work, feigning some kind of illness for about about 6 months but was reelected to what ever he does. I mean this guy has homes in Washington and Illinois...Do you have two homes?  I will never understand why people can't see what is going on? I'll bet his father is really pissed...You know, disgracing the family and all that stuff. I don't know about that ether, these people have no conscience...

“Heuristically Artificial Intelligence” HAL 2001

Droan Aircraft 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 guy and 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.

"Parents and Kids"

© " My Life in a Nutshell "

 Written on November 7,2008

I know of people, family and so called friends who run and hide their heads in the sand because they fear getting old. They ignore their parents and relatives so they don’t have to take care of them. They give the obligatory Christmas plant because it puts a band-aid on the guilt and they don’t feel so bad themselves..........

"Platitudes and Political Nonsense"

© " My Life in a Nutshell "  

Written on September 1st, 2010 at 9:10 AM

In 2010 Willie bit my left leg. I was rushing around the house getting ready to go somewhere and out of a clear blue sky he got mad and bit my leg about 8 inches above the ankle...Well, its 2012 now and I've since forgiven him but time moves on..

    Now it looks like there will no changes or progress in this country for the next four years. Things will stay the same as they are. Greed is still alive and well and flourishing. He won the election and now we see what will happens when he has nothing to lose. I feel a strange sadness because the downhill spiral will continue, only faster and there is nothing we can do. No predictions here, its just same crap on a different day. You lost your chance to do something about it. Now remember, if you can't afford it, use that Master card to buy happiness and charge it. Max out that card because your country needs that..and don't forget to keep those Billions of dollars of aid flowing to all those strange country's.  Good luck out there you will need all the luck you can get....For now that's it. I almost can't wait to see what happens...

"A Before Thought"

© " My Life in a Nutshell "

Title, "A Before Thought"  Written the morning of June 11th, 2009....

They (our leaders if you can call them that) don't want you to believe this but things are even worse now than they were a few years ago. ...Its true we now we are being watched from every angle....Satellites, the roads and highways, stores and from what I understand, drones in the sky. Unless you never leave the house you are being watched and photographed from place's you wouldn't dream about... Rumor has it, the Drone has cameras that are so sophisticated they can see you naked. (just to make sure aren't carrying any bombs.)...I not kidding, its true...But I digress, if you are interested, click the link for "My Life in a Nutshell" and read what I was feeling in 2009....

"US Presidential Race Still Close"

US Presidential Race Still Close

​​​​At a morning rally in New Hampshire, Romney repeated his criticism of President Obama's record, telling supporters that the president has not been able to deliver on the promises he made.
"[Obama] said he was going to be the post-partisan president, but he's been the most partisan, dividing and demonizing," said Romney.  "He said he was going to cut the deficit in half. He's doubled it. He said he would focus on jobs. Instead he focused on Obamacare that kills jobs. He said he'd bring health insurance down $2,500 a year, the cost of it for the average family. Anybody here had their insurance go down $2,500? Matter of fact, the average is up $3,000 per family."

Comment.....I don't know but I have a funny feeling we are going to have a new President?

"Windsor Locks Will Object to Highest Bid for Old Factory"

Windsor Locks Will Object to Highest Bid for Montgomery Mills Building - Windsor Locks-East Windsor, CT Patch

Picture is of the Old High School. Its now the Town Hall .....

Windsor Locks officials have decided to object to the $15,000 bid for the Montgomery Mills complex, which was placed during an October 6 foreclosure sale. First Selectman Steven N. Wawruck Jr. said the board of selectmen has instructed Town Attorney Scott Storms to object to the sale in court. “Fifteen thousand dollars doesn’t even cover the court costs we’ve incurred so far,” Wawruck said. The highest bidder at $15,000 was Mohan Sachdev, a veterinarian from Windsor. He told officials he wants to restore the building for residential.

Comment...... Remember this story? I wrote about it a while ago. My old home town. Where I was raised and went to school. The old train station where I got the train to go to school in Hartford Connecticut. Although the station is not mentioned in the article, its still there, it still smells and it is still an eyesore... I wrote about how all the other towns in the area have solved their old train station and factory issues years ago... In Windsor Locks Its been at a stand still for years and as those years go by, it still goes on and on and on.. Now its another delay. The diesel trains are still going by with blaring horns, shaking the ground and vibrating windows. The eye sore smelly train station and old factory still stand there rotting away. Do not stand downwind to these places! I'm willing to bet that there is, among other things asbestos in that wind! It still comes down to money, greed and the decision making politicians and lawyers. I mean what else is new?  There is something really wrong here... Its never ever about the people.
