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.

Supply-side Which Creates Monopolies Like Microsoft

Capitalism is about supply and demand. With monopolies, promoted by freaking libertarians who don’t like regulation, we have supply-side economics, but we are coerced into thinking this is capitalism. This is no more capitalism than the feudal practices of the aristocracy and monarchy in Britain, before Adam Smith of Scotland wrote his treatise for capitalism as a means of getting rid of the feudal practices of supply-side economics before his day – before the days of Smith’s contemporaries in the North American colonies who were the Founding Fathers of America.

I just received this notice of a “service agreement” with Microsoft. Today, the only product I use from Microsoft is the Windows operating system products purchased with my computers. As a person on the DEMAND SIDE of this market, I see the computer purchase as being like purchasing a refrigerator with a condenser and evaporator to run the refrigerator. Today, there are possibilities for purchasing the computer hardware and software which run the refrigerator. We on the DEMAND SIDE OF A CAPITALIST MARKET purchase the refrigerator, not the software or computer hardware which comes with it. With that same idea for computers, what gives the SUPPLY SIDE of one piece of the computer the right to push and shove down my throat a “service agreement.”

Microsoft, you bastards and SOBs. I no longer use your Microsoft Office product which came with this computer. Go to hell.

And can I COMMUNICATE this with the SUPPLY SIDERS? Nope. I cannot. Why? Because to reply to this freaking lousy email message I received, I have no where to go. I am not allowed to reply to the message. Why? Because Microsoft supply siders are such freaking cowards and don’t want a reply from the DEMAND SIDE of the market. Go to hell those on the SUPPLY SIDE of the markets, encouraged by freaking lousy anarchists we call libertarians today. One of whom serves in the U.S. Senate as the second senator from Kentucky. Bet you didn’t know that, did you? Because you perhaps listen only to freaking FIXED News you call Fox News. Then, if you are reading this, you go to hell, too.

Lousy American Technology Run by Monopolies with People who have a Love of Money – plus more

As an information specialist and librarian, I began using the Internet and some of the original browsers and search engines. Google was not around. Google was introduced. It worked nicely, giving us results of a search which did not go beyond the words we put into it. We could do keyword searching or phrase searching. We could indicate what we did NOT want in the results.

Try doing this with Google today. It is nothing but bullshit. For a diabetic who needs to find recipes for pastry with nut flours like almond flour or hazelnut flour (etc.), we get results with sugar added, sweeteners added, and all-purpose wheat flour. It might have almond paste. I do not ask for a recipe with flour and almond paste. It might give results with almond extract flavoring which is added to wheat flour and sugar. I do not ask for such a recipe. It gives SOB Google gives it to me anyway.

On top of this, even with recipes it gives me freaking shit of products to purchase. Or it gives the results according to those who make money coming up first. I am after information, GD it. I don’t want the bullshit of products. If I did I would search with such keywords.

President Biden wants to regulate monopolized companies like Google or Microsoft. Yet, people yell and scream about it. Why? In the 1980s, Republicans put in place a tax on services. Dry cleaning. Auto mechanic services, etc. With the help of Democrats in Florida and those who were against that bullshit of a tax, the tax was defeated and eliminated. In spite of that, the GD Republicans of Florida moved on with gerrymandering to create a one-party state in Florida. A state with less power of Democrats.

In those years when Republicans were not in the majority, they began doing as Jebbie Bush wanted. Lottery and gambling. Most of the Democrats were opposed to lottery and gambling, so perhaps they remain on the shit list of the mob? The Republicans promised to use lottery money for public education. Never happened.

Republicans, particularly in Florida and Dixie. Liars, liars, pants on fire. As they dictate only what THEY wish to dictate on society.

Meanwhile we are stuck with monopolies in technology which care ONLY for their hardware and software. Those who don’t want to digital information in newspapers and such are damned to hell by the dictatorial means of lousy people with wealth and autocratic control. Oligarchs like Putin. We need to rid this nation of such bullshit. But then. If I complain about it, there is no reply to try to understand what consumers on the demand side of the market wish to have. They condemn and act in a vengeful vicious way. Perhaps to be like the mob when it has a death wish. Like the mob from Russia, too. We want to pursue happiness and find technology to be a lousy way to do it when Spectrum, Verizon, Google, Microsoft act like Trump in not wanting to listen and consider, but destroy.

One more thing. For prescriptions, companies like Walgreens adn CVS are constrained, due to privacy issues. So, when a prescription is not refilled by a doctor, we get one message. Prescription cannot be filled. Well. What is the damn prescription? We then have to make a phone call to find out. Then we find out that to send us the information about which prescription, it would “break privacy laws.” yet, with Spectrum and Verizon and other companies, the supply side cannot take responsibility for those who invade our privacy and snipe and hit us. Spectrum, for instance, says, “it’s not our job.” And then Spectrum goes and funds bitches like Claudia Tenney. So, we pay a high price of $145.00 per month for much crap that we have no interest in viewing. If we did not spend all that GD money for Spectrum and Verizon, we would have money in our family budget to purchase PAPER COPY subscriptions of newspapers and magazines. Instead, we pay crap for crap we don’t want and have no choice form the monopolies, as newspaper publishers also create monopolies focused on national news, destroying local news, information, and culture, and America is more polarized as a result, not knowing who our local politicians are in this democracy. The Republicans win by trashing Democrats. And the population is unable to learn about the local candidates. Don’t bless an America like this. Don’t damn it, either. Damn the fat pigs
