The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

SCOTUS Today is Destroying Religious Freedom and NEEDS TO BE STOPPED from this DESTRUCTION

😁😁😁The SCOTUS just rubber-stamped its approval of violent rape. Those so-called politicized justices who voted this approval need to be removed. I mean. Remove the bastards and the bitch who voted in favor of this. Start playing hardball with these politically PAID people who force this upon the American people by means of enforcing THEIR OWN religious beliefs upon all of us. We have a freedom of religion and separation of church and state for a reason, so WE THE PEOPLE need to take action against those who destroy this.

What is on my Mind this morning? (Thurs., June 30, 2022) RE: Reproductive Rights and the Lousy SCOTUS we have put there by Politics, not for the purpose of Justice

😁What’s on my mind? Just reading about a Republican candidate for Congress who said “overturning Roe v. Wade is a victory.” A victory for whom? Who is the winner of this decision? Do these bastards, and I will call them BASTARDS and SOBs of all kind, think it is a victory for all fetus in the womb? Is it really? Will these bastards outlaw things like coat hangers and other devices which will still be used by many females and then take the lives of living and breathing out-of-the-womb females? Really. Some victory for fetus, huh?

Perhaps these bastards think it is a victory for men who harass women and leave their pubic hairs on soda cans, like Clarence Thomas? Or perhaps for men who rape women, like many others, including another person who calls himself a “Justice?”

Look. I don’t like abortions, either. I would try to talk any female contemplating such a thing out of it, should their own life not be threatened or they were raped by a vicious testosterone-laden aggressive freaking male. I would work very hard, as Planned Parenthood does, to TEACH, not PREACH, that young people be proactive with either self-control or considering and using PRE-CONCEPTION contraception. Such measures should be taken BEFORE penetration and conception. In the end, though, the decision remains with the two people involved in the conception, not with a court of law run by corrupt politicians who want favors done with money and a love of money. Hypocritical people who, with their freaking lousy ideas from their own religious beliefs which supersede, truly, any interest in any human life, whether in the womb or outside the womb.

This is a victory, too, for lousy puritanical Protestants, Jews, and Roman Catholics. This government is not based on a “Christian nation.” Anyone who proposes this is perverted and has no sense of what it means to have the democracy which our Founding Fathers, MOST OF THEM DEISTS, wanted for this nation so as to maintain a democracy. You people SUCK big time. If you don’t like what our Founding Fathers laid down here, then LEAVE THIS NATION AND DON’T COME BACK, you lousy imbeciles. Yes, I am being quite blunt here and sounding vicious. But we are dealing with vicious people who want to override many of our religious beliefs, perhaps even the beliefs of atheists, Deists, and agnostics. The freedom of religion and separation of church and state should have been recognized by such assholes as Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Coney-Barrett, Mitch McConnell, and various others. You are just that. Assholes for not recognizing the role of separation of church and state and WHY it was initially proposed by DEISTS. You are nothing but asshole and I will NOT be as kind as Joe Biden who thinks we are still dealing with people who want to work out compromise in a democracy. Joe Biden who was diplomatic with Republicans when he was Judiciary chair and put asshole Clarence Thomas in place on the SCOTUS. And he IS an asshole. Whether black or white asshole. Now the diplomacy of that time has come back to slap Americans in the face because the GODDAMN MAN FROM KENTUCKY, corrupt as he is, IS NOT DIPLOMATIC and WORK for compromise.

Trump and the Republicunt leadership have no sense of ANY human value and would likely perform genocide on those who don’t agree with them. In this way, they can say they “maintain the peace.” But they destroy justice and use the the SCOTUS for POLITICAL MEANS only. That is NOT what the SCOTUS was designed to be.

Justice Thurgood Marshall had definitions of what democracy and SCOTUS are all about. I do not have the exact definitions, but can paraphrase as best as I am able to do. Justice Marshall was one who defined a democracy by majority and minority. Majorities, whether huge majorities or simple majorities, are decide the guidelines (legislation) for life in America. However, Justice Marshall pointed out that the minority needs to be considered too.

OK. So a majority of Americans, in quite large numbers, were against the decimation of Roe v. Wade. So the “victory” goes to a minority of people when the SCOTUS justices are utilized in the perverted manner they have? Sure. A SIMPLE majority in the U.S. Senate, under the guidance of McConnell, weaved this court into place, even to go against precedent when President Obama appointed a justice and we get a political “conservative” court instead. It’s not conservative. I have many conservative ideals and I don’t agree with what the SCOTUS justices have done. This SCOTUS does the bidding of puritanical assholes in religion and I am conservative but NOT puritanical. So go to hell, those who should NOT be on the SCOTUS and prevailing over MY LIFE.

Repugnican leaders are now working, as always, to destroy, not reform. When there is a simple majority, especially, if one were to apply what SCOTUS Justice Marshall said, then there should be reform, not destruction, by means of compromise between majority and minority – NOT, you assholes, by means of liberal and conservatives or Repugnicans and Democrats.

Yes, I am going to continue calling them assholes because that is what they have and I give such assholes no honor or respect for attempting to destroy a great democracy defined by DEISTS and others in the Founding Fathers. You are no longer worthy of being called TRAITORS, but ASSHOLES worse than TRAITORS.

I am like Teddy Roosevelt, a man who refuses to deal with money-loving assholes with diplomacy. No more. Reform COULD have preserved Roe v. Wade and some of its problems. Any liberal unwilling to do this, too, is just as much of an asshole and brought this destruction of Roe v. Wade on, just as much as those who CALL themselves conservatives (when they are not). Theocratic-endorsing, autocratic-endorsing ones have all brought this on to America and disrupted good things we have in this nation, thinking you will bring peace by DICTATING YOUR BELIEFS UPON ALL OF US. I say go to hell because you people suck and I, for one, have had enough of you assholes.

If you don’t like the great democracy and the way it was set up with LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, stop pledging allegiance to the American flag and go live with Putin in Russia. Stop acting, doing, and sabotaging this nation in the name of the dictatorial czars, communists, and Putins of Russia. Go live with them and leave this nation – get the hell out because you ruin the peace and justice of those of us who respect other human beings, in spite of how we all think. We have a government which was better than most in helping us to work with each other as human beings.

Even the FREAKING NRA wants to have automatic weapons to kill human beings while most hunters and even members of the NRA have told me they would never use an automatic weapon on an animal when they hunt in the woods. It is all in the leadership in such groups and the money they have that WE THE PEOPLE have been denied with denial of OPPORTUNITIES to succeed in life. Just throw HANDOUTS to WE THE PEOPLE, just as fat pig John D. Rockefeller did as he threw dimes at people during the Robber Baron era of America. Go to hell and go live with Putin, you bastard SOB assholes.

And for quite certain, Rick the Prick in the Senate was put in place by a very tiny, tiny, tiny simple majority win in Florida because of gerrymandering, purchasing the election down there and not addressing ISSUES but throwing dirt at opponents – falsely tarnishing the image of his opponents. Rick the Prick Scott is also an asshole sitting in the U.S. Senate with asshole McConnell.

The governor down there in Florida, Ron DeSatan, won in the same way as the Republicans do. A simple majority over a black man, his purchasing the election, tarnishing and image and the results of gerrymandering in Florida. So, now a nation intent on “winning” likes this example? Perhaps those who put winning above integrity, dignity of WE THE PEOPLE, liberty and justice for all, just are mesmerized, like a bunch of lemmings being led to their destruction, likes the Machiavellian style of these corrupt Republicunt assholes – to WIN – and it does not matter what it takes to WIN because feeling like a winner is more important than providing for life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness FOR ALL… LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. If you repeat this in the Pledge of Allegiance, you are a “sleeping dog” of the tyrannical type with hypocritical actions in life. Jesus Christ condemned hypocrites, not abortionists or homosexuals. So you assholes ARE NOT TRUE CHRISTIANS. You are puritanical assholes. I don’t intend to let such “sleeping dogs lie” with hypocrisy, if I can help it at all. But then. I don’t have money and don’t have a “love of money,” do I? So I don’t fit the tyrannical cliques of America, do I?

If you think it’s because I feel bad that I don’t have the money and am begging for the money, like a stupid person asking for handouts. Think again. I am an American who follows the ways of good American ancestors who, over the centuries, fought for the FREEDOMS OF WE THE PEOPLE of AMERICA. This would include my father who was a soldier in the Pacific during World War II. This would include Grandpa Willet who volunteered for the Civil Defense missions of the U.S. Army Air Corps in the 1940s when we were threatened by Nazi planes. I can go further back to the American Revolution.

I don’t look for handouts. I repeat. I don’t look for handouts because I don’t have the money that the asshole puritanical oligarch (plutocrat, autocrat) bastards who call themselves Republicans but I call them Republicunts and Repugnicans. My heroes are not so many who are now still living, but those like Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Adam Smith of Scotland, and Ben Franklin, among others. They all had iron steel balls and played hardball. I probably should just say “played hardball,” rather than refer to the FIGURATIVE version of “balls.” But it is FIGURATIVE and thus could be applied to women, too. Women like Teddy Roosevelt’s niece, Eleanor Roosevelt. Or women like Gloria Steinem, Belva Lockwood, Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, and many other women. I have already mentioned someone who I consider a “hero,” Justice Thurgood Marshall. But there are others of that race, such as Frederick Douglass or Booker T. Washington, and so forth.

JFK was a hero of mine, too. Struck down and injured while involved with a true American “victory” (see the reference to “victory” earlier in my message) in the Pacific during World War II, was killed by what has been kept secret and a well-kept secret. His opposition to sending troops to Vietnam, which the Texas oilmen wanted VP LBJ to do in order to tighten their control over oil. Big Oil is still performing egregious acts against humanity around the world, even today, and in America as well. Of course, what I am saying can be challenged because it has been kept secret, so therefore I lie. If I lie here, then I guess I will be forced to eat crow. But at least I am a MAN enough to admit the guilt, unlike Trump, DeSatan, Rick the Prick (who, on trial, pleaded the fifth and got away with criminal acts), and McCuntface. Let’s just say these guys, figuratively, “get away with murder.” Perhaps the “prick” in the U.S. Senate goes with the “cuntface?”

Another person whom I find as a hero, but was fearful of the Reagan folks for saying so, is Franklin D. Roosevelt. Also President Harry S. Truman. However, the mob groupthink with perverted ideas, like that of the group of Reagan followers, makes people feel guilty if they should not go along with what they are saying. Same thing with the Trump groupthink today, even to the point of Republicunt Repugnicans who work to take money and jobs away from good people, should they not go along with what the Republicunt Repugnicans are saying with regard for hatred of Democrats, including Joe Biden. Is there any possibility small business people in upstate New York do the same things when considering customers? “OH! I want do business with that person because he likes Joe Biden and the Democrats!” But that just makes me paranoid to say this, right? The ones who are doing this are the paranoid ones, especially if they don’t pay taxes and/or refuse to do business with those like me who are Democrats.

And I just expressed a criticism of Joe Biden, in this message. At the same time, I praise Joe Biden for his package of the infrastructure in which Republicunt Repugnicans lie about to their constituents when they return to their home base to campaign for Congress. They voted against the infrastructure, but then go home and take credit for it. “Let sleeping dogs lie,” right? Asshole liars, tyrannical traitors to America and its democratic values, to which these assholes took an oath.

I will continue to stand up for America. I don’t like Big Oil, but that does not mean I am not a patriot. In fact, I am a better patriot than many of the asshole leaders of the Republicunt Repugnican Party.

I now have to hope and pray that I do not face adversity from a bunch of secretive fraternal snots who must have learned their secretive ways from Hitler and Putin.

Now, that is what is on my mind today.


Florida Governor DeSatan Can Go to Hell

Florida Governor DeSatan Can Go to Hell

Once again, after the SCOTUS pronouncement on Roe v. Wade, we have Republicunts and Repugnicans forcing upon us religious beliefs. There are many of us who were raised as those pre-K to 3rd grade in the late 1950s/early 1960s who were in need of instructions on sexual identity and our lives would have been made much easier. But vicious people like DeSatan, Trump, and Rick the Prick don’t give one damn about our entire society. GODDAMN all of these people. They don’t deserve a life, as they ruin the lives of many others.

Happiness in life is defined by ourselves, not by FREAKING lousy vicious people who dictate THEIR form of happiness upon the rest of us. I have done NOTHING to ruin the nasty form of “happiness” from the U.S. Roman Catholic bishops and evangelical shitty puritanical bastards. Why do these BASTARDS figure they need to tread on people like me? Go to hell, all of you. I am angry as hell and ain’t going to take it anymore. And I don’t use guns, either, you freaking bastard SOBs within the Republicunts and Repubnicans.

The Majority on the SCOTUS are Evil with a Belief in an Evil god

The Majority on the SCOTUS are Evil with a Belief in an Evil god

The SCOTUS has no right to invoke rules from the U.S. Roman Catholic bishops and others in religious groups. All such people have no right to put justices on the SCOTUS by means of corrupt practices of people like Mitch McConnell who delayed an appointment to the SCOTUS so as to put one from his crony unit of Republicans and religious leaders.

By the U.S. Constitution, we have freedom of religion. I have a right to my own religious and spiritual beliefs, but I have no right to force state or Federal governments to place rules upon society which follow their own beliefs.

This is a difficulty because it means that some puritanical groups can put a spin on some issue to favor that group only. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This statement is flagrantly abused by the U.S. Roman Catholic bishops. They spin it to include the fetus but not the woman raped and sometimes murdered or losing their own life due to unwanted pregnancy and a fetus. This is mean and vicious on the parts of puritanical assholes in the churches who force their beliefs upon the rest of us.

“Love your neighbor as yourself.” Freaking lousy puritanical Roman Catholics and others are lousy and vicious human beings to turn this towards a “neighbor” being a fetus and more important than living human beings. That is MY belief and the freaking SCOTUS, appointed by freaking lousy corrupt individuals, interfere with MY belief. No lawyers stood up and said this because those assholes are more involved with their GODDAMN personal injury lawsuits than to protect the freedoms of the rest of society.

Furthermore, these asshole religionists treading on the rest of us forget to protect the lives of those who are 18 and older who are sent off to war. That is the worse part of their hypocritical oath to their GODDAMN religion which is not of God, but of an evil god. Inconsistent bastards giving rules to run the lives of the rest of us and our own beliefs. A stupid SCOTUS was paid off to do what they have just done with Roe v. Wade. GODDAMN THEM and the U.S. Roman Catholic bishops, and other puritanical religious groups. They are lousy human beings.

Getting Away with Cyber Attacks and Tailgating

I’ll tell you what’s on my mind. Hacks who are like snipers on computers. I have enough knowledge to understand that mobile phones and computers do not change settings on their own.

Yesterday, we nearly had an accident because of the person who shut off our volume on our Verizon phone and we struggled to try to find the setting. Google Maps does not bother to put a mute or non-mute button on their map directions. We were traveling to a location and slowly attempting to look for an address. A bastard SOB in a pickup truck tailgating us was an asshole and almost hit us as we were attempting to find the location without the voice of Google Maps. We slowed and noticed the location on the left side of the road. This asshole in the pickup truck trying to get somewhere too GODDAMN FAST, almost hit us as we attempted to turn left. BASTARD SOB who should be taken off the road. BASTARD SOB. Fortunately, we avoided an accident.

Worse, though, is the person who turned off our “media volume” and it was taking us a long time to find where the GODDAMN setting was on the Verizon phone. Typically, the volume on and the voice would have said, “destination is on left,” as we were attempting to locate the number of the address, driving slowly to do so. BASTARDS who tailgate should be in prison.

Add to this the number of times driving on NYS 38B and having to have tailgating bastards there, as we go about 55 MPH – the speed limit – and those bastards wish to go about 75 to 85 and tailgate. Dangerous things where deer roam across the road. Should we have to stop suddenly for a deer, these bastard tailgaters would run into us from behind. BASTARDS.

That’s what’s on my mind today. GODDAMN THE TAILGATERS for threatening the lives of people driving. It’s a matter of life and death. You bastards. Goddamn the ones who change our digital settings and Verizon, Spectrum, or law enforcement doing NOTHING to stop such cyber attacks.

True Capitalism in prescriptions, health, other economics, NOT supply-side Reaganomics

Neither Ozempic nor insulin injections have brought my A1C below 7. This for some 15 years or more.

Big fat pigs at the head of Nova Nordisk advertise like snake-oil salesmen that Ozempic lowers A1C below 7. They then reap benefits caused by freaking lousy Republican politicians to protect big pharma, $1000 per month. While employed and paying part of my health insurance bill, paid little for Ozempic. Due to Republicans who protect big fat pigs of pharma and others, I have to pay some 25% of the Ozempic bill and never find any health insurance premium for me to INVEST like a CAPITALIST for long-term RETURNS ON INVESTMENTS.

I have written about this dozens and dozens of times and NOBODY WANTS TO DO ANYTHING except to treat me with viciousness and thinking I am trying to get a handout. THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR A HANDOUT but to bring to people’s attention that this is a CAPITALIST SOCIETY for which fat pigs endorsing supply-side Reaganomics, like TRUMP, have no idea what supply AND DEMAND means in CAPITALIST economics.

We all have or will have long-term CAPITALIST investments in Medicare and Social Security, yet the freaking lousy ones who follow the big fat pigs like lemmings being led over a cliff, vote for these GODDAMN REPUBLICANS, including Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania. GODDAMN fat pig Republican leadership which mesmerizes people by casting aspersions on what Medicare and Social Security are.

They also have turned the mortgage and housing market into freaking short-term instantaneous benefits and the only ones who benefit are the big fat pigs who create slum lords out of themselves.

And we apparently have no wealthy ones who will challenge this shit as Teddy Roosevelt did at one time. We also have no tough people in the Democratic Party to be tough and play hardball with this situation, thinking life in Congress is the same as it was some 20 plus years ago when people there were actually many statespeople, not a predominance of those lining their pockets due to PACs and Citizens United from a lousy politicized SCOTUS unwilling to consider HUMAN JUSTICE as the most important part of the justices ways.


Dealing with Amazon and Other Big Business Today

As was once said, “I am angry as hell and not going to take it anymore.” Who said that? I think I know.

American business, with the exception of a few like Disney, really sucks today. It is being run by greedy selfish money-grabbing money-lovers with no concern or sensitivity for human beings. They don’t know what it means to EARN money “the old-fashioned way,” but know how to take money. They may call themselves “capitalists,” but they are not. They are more like Castro and other communists who confiscated property and jammed broadcast signals from sources they did not want people to hear.

The government, as imperfect as any human institution can be, is not the problem. The fascist oligarchs, trying to grab control of this nation, are the problem. Companies like Disney stand up to the puritanical ones who side, like a bunch of lemmings being led off the cliff, with people like DeSatan of Florida and many others elsewhere, like Abbott of Texas and so forth.

For instance. Gannett and the local Pravda, in line with what is happening to eliminate local news and cultural interests (while sports remains tops), has eliminated a local channel listing in the newspaper. It’s bad enough that it is difficult here in this rural hilly area to have a tough job receiving FREE broadcasts and finding no one willing to be hired to install an antenna for local television. But to pay for local television on Spectrum and have no CAPITALIST COMPETITION at work, is simply bizarre and taking America down the wrong road for the sake of the oligarchs who wish to create a nation of haves and have nots. So, what does one do with the elimination of a local television grid which has always been a part of local newspapers as long as television has been with us? I see an ad that Amazon is selling 6-month TV Guide subscriptions at a low price. So I jump at the chance to have a local television grid which has been lacking since the hedge fund greedy owners of Gannett yanked it away from us several months ago.

Sounds like this should have been great, right? Long story short. Here we are after twice being billed by Amazon and receiving subscription notices from TV Guide, trying to get delivery of TV Guide. We ordered it in May. Still, in June, we don’t have it. We are told it will begin in July. American business once ran much better than this. I got angry at the people at Amazon, after being led around and around and around. It was not just one isolated event in which I felt helpless at getting something done. No. This event is added to a list of events from many different American companies.

The nice thing to report. Amazon offered a high-price for a hardcover book and almost half cost for a Kindle. We tried Kindle and we hated it. We tried Nook and we hated it. For cookbooks and reference books, the Kindle app for desktop comes in handy. But to sit and read a book on Kindle? Don’t be absurd. Besides being visually impaired, the complications we have with technology and the costs to keep it going is out of sight. I would rather pay $6.00 for a gallon of gasoline, then all the bullshit of costs surrounding broadband, cable, streaming, desktop and laptop computers, and other media. Sure. The cost to read this book on Kindle is half the cost of a hardcover book. But when I add all of this stuff up over a year’s time, the amount to pay for several hardcover books and/or borrow from a library, is much less over one years time. Even if we pay $6.00 for the Sunday New York Times (when it ever gets delivered, I don’t know), is far less than the technology shit. The subscriptions (if we could ever get them) are less than spending money on the gasoline to go to the store (not sold in my rural hometown) and the price of the newspaper. If we could ever get the newspaper delivered.

Go to hell big business for dropping this shit in the laps of consumers on the DEMAND SIDE OF CAPITALISM, especially for rural folks. We still don’t have the TV Guide delivered and Amazon customer service would rather be vindictive towards me because of my anger. These folks explain, insincerely, “they are concerned.” Concerned? Then do something and resolve the situation to my satisfaction. NOPE. Not done. Only the supply side of the market is supposed to be satisfied, not the DEMAND side. That is tantamount to fascism, Nazi-ism, and communism. Central control and we all just bow down or else get shot, whether figuratively or truly shot.

Such greedy Americans be damned. That is my hope. They be damned.



Headlines (6/21/2022): “Abortion foes have hope…”

I am an abortion foe and have hope, but not hope as indicated in the front page article this morning. I have hope for Democratic Party working to reform and that the Republican Party moves to destroy by using corrupt ways for McConnell and others to put a politically motivated Supreme Court in power.  Democrats want reform. Republican leaders want destruction. There are many other examples besides abortion which uphold this statement.

For me, I am against abortion for the purposes of contraception. There are many more proactive ways for contraception. Abortion is right-wing reactionary.  I am proactive for the purpose of helping our society progress, not go backwards. Reform is the answer, not putting a bunch of heathen justices on to do the bidding of SOME abortion foes. They don’t do what I want, as an abortion foe, so as to work to reform the laws.  I am sick and tired of this and only hope that we can put the Republican leadership on an isolated island with no communications, the way the British did to get rid of such people by putting them in penal colonies away from Britian. 

This issue is not about politics revolving around Roe v. Wade. It’s about justice, morality, and ethical actions. Sure. Argue that taking the life of a fetus is immoral and unethical. Go ahead. Shoot holes in what I am saying. This is about justice, morality, and ethics. This would include women who get raped. We still go back to the BS of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19) and Judges 19.  Violent rape is the issue and we have people who FORCE us to live by their age-old wrong bias which has attacked gay people and women who are raped.  The actual LITERAL Bible passages do not indicate such things, but people act as if this is a Holy message against a group of people and ignoring the protection of raped women. Even in cases of date rape this happens. We are scratching our heads whether one of the people on the SCOTUS, put there by political unethical crap from Trump and McConnell, committed but it has been kept covered over.

Then there is the black man on SCOTUS who is married to a white woman who is VERY unethical. Nothing wrong with inter-racial marriage. But this black man, Thomas, is a lousy man on SCOTUS and far from the great black man first appointed to SCOTUS: Thurgood Marshall.  Marshall had an idea of what justice was, even to the point that when he helped an African nation write a constitution, he advised that a constitution covers all people, both black and white. Therefore, Marshall was addressing the white people who lived in that nation.  In this case, it’s about humanity and the overall human race. If Thomas does what I know some black racists want, I find him to be just as despicable as those in the KKK and white supremacist groups.  Such black racists don’t want abortion because it “does not help advance the black race.” Excuse me? How about considering the human race, as Io once said to a black man who gave me this BS. 

I am not afraid to be blunt and put things out there as they should be. That, too, is my hope. But I also hope the SCOTUS, with regard to abortion AND reproductive rights of LIVING human beings, are taken into consideration.  I admire the late Justice Thurgood Marshall. I have no respect for SCOTUS justices Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, and several of the others who are there only to uphold the political ideals of Trump, McConnell, and the Roman Catholic bishops, who have absolutely no right to tread on our liberties. 

What IS on my mind? About healthcare, true patriots, true capitalism, Teddy Roosevelt, and imperfect human organizations, plus…

Here is what is on my mind today. I am as angry as my distant relative, Teddy Roosevelt was back in the early 20th Century when they allowed anger to be expressed without guns and did not give people like TR ritilin. During a time of common sense in America. If TR got reactions of vengeance and vindication like Trump followers do today when receiving criticism, it was likely from super billionaires who falsely called themselves “capitalists” but had no idea what capitalism was intended to be: supply AND demand economics to overturn aristocratic oligarchs and plutocrats. Who were those guys who challenged TR? Carnegie, Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan. Quite possibly the ones behind sending an anarchist to try to kill TR. Why? Because anarchists, like “libertarians” today, want an “anything goes” deregulated environment in order to expand their ruthless ways and call themselves capitalists when they line their pockets by way of monopolies. Monopolies. Feudal lords before Adam Smith defined supply AND demand capitalism ran monopolies and supply side economics only.

So, what do I have to say today? Big fat pharma. Puts out commercials of Ozempic with someone speaking and claiming it lowered A1C from 8.2 to 6.8. That never happened with me with 15 years of taking insulin. Went on Ozempic and finally my numbers did lower, but never below A1C of 7. NEVER. With Ozempic. Big fat monopolist supply-side big pharma charges $1000 for a pen which has helped me a bit, but not like their GODDAMN commercials say.

So. Last night. I took my last dose for the month of Ozempic. This morning, my glucose numbers, after diet, exercise all weekend, were 245. TWO FORTY FIVE. From a medicine Nova Nordisk helps keep glucose down. TWO FORTY FIVE. TWO FORTY FIVE.

So. With a complaint like that, how do people in healthcare react? Doctors and BIG FAT PHARMA? I think they are more prone to vicious vindictiveness about the problem the customer faces, not about SOLVING THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A PROBLEM HERE and I am disgusted at health officials who play the GODDAMN BLAME GAME AND BLAME THE PATIENT. WHY? SO THE DOCTORS CAN CONTINUE TO LINE THEIR POCKETS AND NOT FOLLOW THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH? As the character Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H said about conservative idiotic doctor Frank Burns (another character), “not enough bedside manner” – or Hawkeye would say this in some sarcastic way. We need doctors like Hawkeye Pierce who had concern for the guys being shot up in the war scenes of Korea. Not freaking lousy doctors who like the Trump way or the RICK THE PRICK (supposed founder of HCA) way of “privatized”
medicine, putting money first.

And for others to say, whether we get refused in healthcare or other “business” areas, “it’s not against the law to deny a patient service.” OK. So, you don’t have to tell me that information because I am quite aware of it. Tell me what you intend to do about it? Don’t fill me with the crap of information about “what’s going on.” DO SOMETHING. SHOW THAT YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT, whether you have money or not. Because I worked with college students in the 1970s to do something when Gov. Hugh Carey wanted to shut down several SUNY colleges, by way of the SUNY SGA and other sources. And we were poor and had no money. If we could do something then, what stops people today? DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS SHIT in which the lack of a mean and angry “trust buster” like Teddy Roosevelt DID SOMETHING to bring down the assholes of his day.

BTW. Teddy Roosevelt is related to me by my maternal line of Dutch people. His cousin, FDR, had a granddaughter who married into my Dutch family. But there are plenty of other examples from the past in which there was inter-marriage with my maternal family. And we had a captain who fought for the PATRIOTS who made sense back in the late 18th Century, in spite of his wealth. He also did not AVOID paying taxes, but put forth extra money to help this government get going. A human institution which gave us many good things, in spite of examples of human imperfections which are part of being HUMAN. I am proud of my Dutch ancestor who did this. But do I face vindication and those who have the name or stand up? So I don’t mention the Dutch name. Shameful as this is. But those PATRIOTS of the 18th Century were far better people than the SHIT thugs of Trump MAGA, Proud Boys, Qanon. They attack our Federal Capitol building.

The PATRIOTS of the 18th Century were AGAINST a dictatorial KING of England, not against Parliament. They did NOT go to Parliament in London to take over the Parliament building, but they sure did try to bring King George down. On the same token, there were many IN ENGLAND who disliked such a dictator. The Parliament DID NOT TREAD ON THE COLONISTS and made attempts to COUNTER the taxes King George insisted on pushing on the colonists. Parliament tried the best they could and succeeded on several fronts, but not all. Fact is. They did not all go along with King George. My ancestral AMERICAN PATRIOTS fought the king, not the Parliament, but were forced into a corner by the dictatorial king.

Ben Franklin knew about TRUE capitalism because he spent time in Scotland with the man who defined capitalism to challenge the crown: Adam Smith. Thomas Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers may not have spent time in Scotland, but did so in other European nations. George F. Johnson, a co-founder of Endicott-Johnson Shoes in the Binghamton area, spoke about being “sensitive” to the community and the people and used words like “industrial democracy.” Thomas J. Watson repented of his following the ways of Carnegie, Rockefeller, and J.P. Morgan and created IBM. Due to Teddy Roosevelts trust busting regulations, Watson, in working for NCR in a role to DESTROY competition (another part of capitalism which is NOT monopoly) came close to a jail sentence. I read where John D. Rockefeller was rejected by his own parents because he was such a greedy ass.

Teddy Roosevelt is one of my heroes. So, with anger, like TR, I use some vile language in what I write. I don’t have the money that TR had, but I am still proud, no matter how much I express anger at what is going on and the lack of people doing something about it. The people at the 1968 political convention were beaten by police there, as they attempted to speak out. BEATEN BY CHICAGO POLICE. I have seen the photos. BEATEN BY THE POLICE for the only means they had was to speak out in anger and NOT CARRY GUNS. I have yet to see the Proud Boys or others associated with Trump Republican’s lousy freaking MAGA get beaten. Not once. Gay people congregating together, and not always for sex, either, were BEATEN BY POLICE while attempting to live in peace with one another. You cannot have peace without justice, so they rose up in protest, WITHOUT GUNS, at the Stonewall Inn.

We are HUMANS, not animals. In fact, good and decent hunters who hunt animals have told me they would NEVER use an automatic weapon. But asses use them to kill human beings.

Many of us can live together in peace, while there are those who DISTURB THE PEACE and face no repercussions. Come on, Biden and the Democrats play hardball with such idiots in America today who call themselves patriots. I am a PATRIOT, but such asses like MAGA and so forth ARE NOT PATRIOTS, but traitors and terrorists.

Meanwhile, if I criticize healthcare, I get vindicated. Perhaps the doctor in Florida who put money first with me thinks I turned him in for not paying taxes? I had no idea. But there were many others who were disgusted at that and could have turned him in. I did not do it. But because I speak out against those who don’t pay taxes, as if they are BETTER THAN ME, makes me a bad guy, according to the idea of groupspeak and going along with the crowd? So, I get angry so therefore I go along with the Trust Buster Teddy Roosevelt and not the crowd with groupspeak being defined by FOX NOISE PROPAGANDA BROADCASTING?

Something is wrong with the meds being prescribed to me. For me, this is a matter of life and death. I get lovers of money throwing shit in my face, rather than assisting me. And if I complain, these younger doctors and healthcare providers just want to be vicious towards me, not accepting anger which develops when the criticism and looking for solutions does not work. We don’t have leaders like TR today because they are all taking ritilin. Instead, we have stupid idiots like Trump, DeSatan (DeSantis of Florida), Rick the Prick Scott (of Florida) and many others who don’t want us to live in peace and justice, but to control us like dictators and tell us how to live our lives. Shallow individuals who are corrupt and get away with far more than any others. And they don’t like criticism, either. They don’t even know what it meant when George F. Johnson described “industrial democracy” and was successful in doing it. Same thing with Thomas J. Watson. Those who took over for the two men were absurd in claiming that such means of operating companies don’t work. That is because they sabotaged such efforts so they would not work. Same thing with privatized healthcare today and the destructive forces from Trump MAGA who want to destroy Obamacare, Medicare, Social Security and public hospitals (among many other things on their lists), putting America into a have and have not situation. The wealthy afford the care and those without wealth who are not able to afford proper healthcare. Screw such false divinity people who act like money is god and those who have the most as gods..

Yes. I am here to complain. You can call it complaining. Or you can call me a critic who wants to make life better for all. I am like the local newspaper restaurant critic who has a desire to make life better for the customers going to restaurants. The best ones were the ones who wrote a good analysis and did not just bloviate the bias they have.

Two newspaper music critics I knew in Florida. One I considered to be an ass and a snot because of being an elitist high-brow SOB. The other one was very fair in judgment, even to be kind to the performers in opera. A specific circumstance was when, at the last minute, the maestro fired the orchestra and those on stage had to do the performance accompanied only by a piano. The pianist was great. An opera without an orchestra? This music critic was kind and concentrated on the good parts of what the singers did on stage. And they were very good. That newspaper music critic was a graduate of Eastman School of Music. The snot was from New York City and felt better than everyone else.

These are my experiences to share with the world. Sad to say, America has become a nation of too many snots with money. I recall a day in America when there was not such a predominance of such people. A complaint is no longer considered constructive criticism, but an attack. The reason this happens is because there are too many younger people taught not to get angry, usually on drugs which keep anger to a minimum, and then lack any confidence. They demonstrate the lack of confidence by being vengeful to those who put forth constructive criticism. Refusal to provide service of any kind? Go to hell with such a notion. Too many Americans need an attitude adjustment and that means Biden and the Democrats need to play hardball because the world is NOT the type of world of decent human beings in politics which may have been more predominant when Biden was in the U.S. Senate. It was not a perfect world then. But it sure has not become closer to perfect today. In fact, the imperfections are more a part of life than before. It’s time we accepted constructive criticism, when people feel helpless and go to anger, and other means for human communication, rather than laughing at someone who learned to promote communication because it was one of the skills required on job listings. Silly me for learning to be like that.


Liberty for the soul!

This quote is refreshing, given the predominance of such lousy attitudes today about what this nation is about and how it came about. From the origins of the colonial experience, persecuted people, such as my ancestors, came here only to find out that puritanical people who believed they knew what Christ was all about – many like them today in the evangelical catholic, Baptist and other Protestants, act the same way, chomping at the bit to destroy human rights which make people happy when they are able to live in liberty and justice for all. Human rights are important, whether it’s rights to identify who we are from a young age with regard to sexual identity, to reproductive rights of women, to rights due to indigenous folks and those of different colors of skin, whether from Asia, Latin America, or Africa. Instead of just looking for something to relate to younger people, how about recognizing the wisdom of age and listen to some of us. My parents, one white color and one blue color, were very intelligent people who encouraged me to THINK, as did Thomas J. Watson with his employees at IBM.

Become whole-brained, not lain-brained, left-brained (analytical), right-brained (creative) – striving for that. The human brain has so many brain cells that so many Americans don’t know how to utilize because they prefer to be lazy and let Fox News or some other idiotic people tell them what to believe and then go along with the crowd.

I must have gotten my intelligence from my parents. When I was going through a time of therapy, the therapists all said I should consider joining MENSA, due to my intelligence. Or that I was able to think outside the box for solutions.

Lilly Tomlin played a character in a movie and the character had a great deal of insight. I wish to share that insight with one line which came from that character. “I am not interested in attempting to determine the meaning of life; I am more determined to figure out the mysteries of life. Along this line, an author has said, “seek wisdom, not certainty.”

How about adapting such mantras? How about if the rest of America learns from these models and are able to provide liberty for the soul? 🧐😎😍
