I have been blogging since 1982. Over the years I have report on and discuss subjects that interest me at the time.

Now I can get access to a gun

  I want to thank the Republicans in the House.  They voted to allow people that are mentally impaired to have access to guns.  Yes the Republicans in the House want people like me with mental illnesses to have access to guns.
  God bless the Republicans.  They are real fucking Americans.
  They know that the Second Amendment  of the United States Constitution does not say that people that are crazy can not have a gun.  Hell we are the sort of people that want and need guns.
   We need protection from Communist,  Saintist, Zomies and space aliens.  Plus there are others that we need guns for and you know who they are ….

   A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

 

Doctor’s office visit and request for a breast reduction

  I took an Uber to the doctor’s office today.   It was for my check up.  I gave them my blood and urine.  The doctor’s office will put the results online.  If he sees a problem he will contact me. 
  I was going to have him take a growth off my shoulder.  I asked him about the place on top my head.  It has been there for a year.  It does not heal. I wanted to make sure if the he removed the growth on my shoulder that it would heal.

He looked at the place on top my head and said without a delay “CANCER!”  It said it so fast that I was thinking he was joking. Cancer is not funny but I attempted a bit of humor with him.  But he just went on telling me what would have to be done about the place on top my head.  I knew he was not joking.
  I made an appointment for a month from now to have him remove the thing on my shoulder and to do a biopsy of the place on top my head.  If the results are cancer he told me what would have to be done.  There is not much skin on top of my head.  So if they have to remove the place I may have to have a skin graft.

  Now … I know what you all are thinking from looking at the photo above. 
NO I did not ask to have a breast reduction!
   I paid a lot of money to get those breasts. 

President Trump fires acting Attorney General

We have real problems with “our” President.  I do not know how our nation is going to make it.  We have a  President that is emotional a 5 year old. 

Today President Trump is going to announce who he wants for the Supreme Court.

But he just fired Sally Yates who was the acting Attorney General!

“Sally Quillian Yates (born August 20, 1960) is an American lawyer. She served as a United States Attorney and later United States Deputy Attorney General, having been appointed to both positions by President Barack Obama. She served as Acting United States Attorney General from January 20, 2017 until her dismissal by President Donald Trump on January 30, 2017, following her order to the Justice Department not to defend Trump’s immigration-related executive order in court…”

    The United States Attorney General is the head of the United States Department of Justice. The AG is the chief law enforcement officer and chief lawyer of the United States. 
    We expect that person to follow the laws of the United States and protect all of us.  The AG is also takes an oath:

 

"I (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to
the same; that I take this obligation freely without any mental
reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully
discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So
help me God."



  Yes the President of the United States can fire the AG.
But we expect the AG to follow the oath they have taken and do the right thing for all of us.  We expect the AG to stand up for the Constitution and stand up to the President of the United States.  Of course you would expect the President of the United States to ask the AG about a law or Executive Order before he issued one or signed one.  You would expect the President to listen to the AG.
  But we have a stupid President now.  We have a man that has not read the Constitution of the United States and does not understand it. 

  Now the President of the United States has to get Congress to approve the new AG that he wants.  I feel sorry for Sen. Jeff Sessions.  He  is the man  that President Trump wants the Congress to confirm as AG. 
  Sen. Sessions is going to be asked, under oath, if the Executive Order from President Trump is legal.  He is going to be asked if he was AG would he enforce it. 
   It is not only Sen. Sessions that is going to be in the hot seat but also the person that President Trump wants to put on the United States Supreme Court.  We do not know yet who he will be but I feel sorry for him.  I expect he will say that he can not discuss a pending case that might come before the high court.  But he is still going to get asked about it.

  Today the Senate Judicial Committee  plans to vote on Sen. Sessions and then it would go to the full senate for a vote of confirmation.  I think the Judicial Committee should NOT vote today.  I think they should call Sen. Sessions back and ask him some questions.
   If I was Sen. Sessions I would tell President Trump that I did not want the job of AG now.  Just think about how it would feel to be approved and walk into the office of the AG now.
   
   President Trump is not off to a good start.  
  The Democrats do not have the votes.  It up to the Republicans in Congress and I do not see them doing anything to help.
   The Republicans should send him a message.  A strong message.
    

 


Big change for me in 2017

 

Pray For Me

If you been watching my YouTube videos you know that my grandson moved out a few months ago and I setup his room as a office.  I moved stuff into his old room.  Made a lot of changes.
  Yesterday my ex-wife and son, they live in an apartment next door, made a decision they are going to move into this apartment with me. 
  Yes Darlene is going to be living in this apartment with me.  James will also be living here.
 
  I will be telling the apartment office today.  I sign a new lease for the year today if the office has it ready.  Darlene will be telling the office that when their lease is up, two months, that she will be moving out of their apartment.

  The reason for this big change is financial reasons.  Darlene and I are both on Social Security.  The rent each month goes up on the apartment.  Our Social Security benefits do not go up. 
  Now with President Trump in office we are not sure what is going to happen.
  So by sharing this apartment we can cut our costs.  All of us should be better off, at least in a financial way, and have a little extra money each month.
  Darlene and Jimmy have a cat, DD, and DD will be coming over here.  That is the cat that bit Darlene and put her in the hospital.  I am going to have a cat litter box over here.  (Something to look forward too!)

  Right now I pay $715.00 a month for rent.  Not counting the extra charges the apartment has added.  We now pay for trash, water, gas and a pet fee.  We play for the electric bill also.
  Right now I pay about $737.00 a month.  That does not include the electric bill.  When I sign the new lease the rent will go up. 
  It is not because Darlene and Jimmy are moving in here. 
 
  It will be nice to have some extra money free each month.  But living with Darlene, Jimmy and DD for me will not be easy.
  But life is not easy.  I suspect this will be my Purgatorium

 
 

New taxes from the Republicans

It looks like President Donald Trump and the Republicans want new taxes! 
It looks like President Trump wants a 20% tax on imports from Mexico to pay for the $15 billion dollar wall that he wants to build!

Who do you think is going to pay that new tax on Mexico?  You and I will pay it.

If the tax causes problems for Mexico then who will need to bail them out?  You and I will have to do it.  We can not have Mexico fail. 
They are on our border.  If they have problems we will have major problems. 

President Trump had no idea what he is doing.  You have money in the stock market?  Better take it out and put it under your mattress.

ShowMe Video for 01/17/2017

  I am so far behind ..

I got two reviews that I need to do …  I forgot to take my meds last night and so busy that I just now took my morning meds at 1 PM.  I should have taken the AM meds about 9 AM.
I sold a HT on eBay and need to check it out before I send it.  I want to make sure the firmware is updated and need to check out that the DTML keys work on the radio.  Some older HTs had problems.  But the new firmware takes care of the problem.

I just got my monthly pill container filled. That takes half an hour to do.

My son just got his new laptop.  It is an Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop. It has a GTX1050 video card.  Yes he got a laptop.  I has 8 GB of ram and a 1 TB hard drive and a 8 GB SSD drive.  I wanted to do a unboxing of it.  But I was to busy.  He did show it to me.  It looks like a great laptop.  It even has a lighted keyboard.

 

I hate Skype

  I hate Skype.  I hate everything about Skype.
One reason I hate Skype is the way they bill.  You sign up with them and then different parts of the service call a different amount of money and last for a different amount of time.  I never know what I am signed up for .. Plus I have had problems logging in from time to time and have  got more than one number .. Just a fucking mess.
  Everything about Skype suck.
  Of course I just set it up again.  I think every time I try and set it up I get a different number and sometimes the old one is still setup.

  They have not heard of “Keep it Simple.” 
  They should have one price for everything.
 
   So I set them up again .. fuck …
The reason I setup Skype is that I think I am going to talk to people and interview people using Skype. Then if those videos are any good I will post them to YouTube.
   
    Think about if you want to be in a video chat using Skype with me … Give me a bit of time to test it.  Then let me know if you are interested and we will setup a time to talk and see if we can get an interesting video out of it.

   

My son wants to buy a laptop computer from Dell

Yesterday it was the painters working upstairs.  Not a problem.   It sounds like today it is the carpet people .. and that will mean pounding.
This apartment complex has two men that do most of the work around here.  Right now I think they are down to one man.  Lot of work for one man.
When someone moves out they have painters come from some company and paint the apartment.  Then they have a company comes in and put down the carpet.  I think that is it except for they have a couple of women come in and they clean the place.
  I mention this because … If you have some  skills you might look around where you live and see if you could make a deal with apartment complexes.  Not a bad job.  You have the skills, you have the tools and they just call you when they need your services.  It could be extra money.  You might also have family that could help you.  Get that teenage son out of the basement and get him to do some work and learn a skill.

  I am waiting for a headset to get here today.
  It is cold … I do not want to get out.  But I guess walking to the mailbox will not kill me.  But at 75 years of age you never know.
 

  My blood sugar  was only 96 this morning.  I am low on food here.. I found something to eat.  Then I had some candy.  I know… I have a good blood sugar level and then I eat candy.
  I am 231.4 pounds.  I need to make an appointment with my doctor.  He wants to see me about each six months.  It is time for me to see him.  I will make it for late this month or at the first of next month.
