MY EMAIL RECEIVED FROM SAN DIEGO GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY AND MY EXQUISITE REPLY, IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF!

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

Today, I received another aggravating email from San Diego Gas and Electric about how much more energy I use than my neighbors, they send these periodically; but today, I finally sent a reply. For your reading pleasure here is their email and my reply.

SDG&E 3 OFFICE BDG

FROM SDG&E:
Acct # ******5950 You used 7% more energy than your neighbors.
Efficient Neighbors 185 kWh
All Neighbors 347 kWh
You 370 kWh
Mar 19, 2016 – Apr 19, 2016 This comparison is based on approx. 60 nearby homes that are most similar to yours. Efficient homes include the most efficient 20 percent from the “All Neighbors” group. Learn more. Ways to Save: Turn off lights when not needed; Use and switch off power strips; Replace your old refrigerator.

ME BACK AT THEM: To the President of SDG&E: Take all this bull____ you emailed me and stick it up you’re a__; yes, I burn more energy than my neighbors you jackasses, I’m 86 years old, spend all day at home in my lousy cheap apartment with a cheap refrigerator, while my neighbors are at work burning their employers energy, and I am home alone at night, when they are out burning up energy of the bar, where they are drinking.

So yes, I’m burning more energy than my neighbors, and I am paying a premium because I use more than the average energy burned in my neighborhood based on the fact I live alone.

I also leave the bathroom light on all night and the thermostat turned up at night because I get up to pee ever damn hour during the night because of my 86 year-old prostate.

And the only help I get from you, my energy provider, are higher rates, and idiotic letters about how I use more f___ing energy than my neighbors.

Please leave me the f___ alone, quit sending me stupid emails about how much energy I AM PAYING FOR and count your blessing that I do not have a government owned energy provider that understands my problem as a citizen and a customer and provides for my needs without your damn profits, your crooked lobbyists, and your waste of money writing me stupid emails.

DOCTORS, MY HEALTH AND VITALITY, AND LONGEVITY

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Today I received a nice email from a good friend, citing things doctors say that keep people healthy and let them live longer.

SURGERY ROBOT 1

This was my reply:
It seems to me that most of the doctors that I know who have plans to keep people alive, have died and I am 86 and still living.

Every time I go to see a doctor, they take my blood pressure. At 86 years of age, my blood pressure has always been “normal”, except when my appointment required that I drive to the doctor’s office in the morning commute; then it will be high, but it always goes back to
“normal” when the morning commute resides.

I never really needed medication for high blood pressure control, instead I just needed a later appointment.

I have always wondered if the nurses are really taking my blood Pressure or giving a report on the morning commute traffic.

It seems to me that doctors have a pill for everything and they always prescribe it for me, no matter what; I read what the effects of the pill are, then wonder if the cure is going to kill me, and I ultimately decide that I wasn’t really sick in the first place.

To remain healthy, I have decided that it is often necessary to change doctors.

It is extremely difficult to remain healthy in this world of wonder drugs and technical advancement!

I choose my doctors very carefully, based on their biography; the last wonderful genius of a doctor I chose, I chose him because of the first sentence of his biography, which read, “I was born on a farm in Iowa, and when I was little, I liked to read books about science,” and ended with, “I just want to help people.” Immediately after reading his biography, I made an appointment and he has medically improved my life and longevity ever since then.

God is good; what the hell, God is sane!

WITHER AMERICA GOETH IN 2016; FOR MORE AMERICAN WARS OF AGGRESSION FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PNAC AND CORPORATE AMERICA’S FOREIGN INVESTMENTS AND BENEFIT, MORE PROFITS, AND LOWER WAGES. IT IS APPARENTLY IN THE POLITICAL STARS!

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Today, I am doing too much thinking!

And, my analysis is that there has been too much lying, cheating, and corruption in today’s elections.

The real problem with today’s election, is that the cheating, lying, and corruption have been by Debbie’s DNC, the Centrist Democratic DC Establishment, Hillary’s corporate America super PACs, and the corporate America main stream news media.

The Democratic Party Establishment is determined to eliminate any liberal progressive candidate from getting the nomination, they are determined to have no more 2008 and Obama, and want to go back to 2000 and 2004 elections.

Personally, I don’t support a Party but only a candidate, and I am a registered Democrat only to support a Bernie Sanders type candidate; and I am a liberal progressive.

BERNIE IRAQ WAR HILL FOR IT

Hillary is “moderate” Republican-Lite, not liberal progressive, and if she loses the General Election, the Democratic Establishment are already blaming liberal progressive Democratic voters for voting against Hillary; this election is so unreal and insane that I have come to believe there is no hope for America at all, because liberal progressive is what American democracy and U.S. Constitution is supposed to be all about, and with Hillary, neither party will have a liberal progressive candidate . . . . again!

This election will be like 2000 and 2004 all over again. In the 2008 General Election, the independent liberal progressive working Middle Class and Poor voters, not the Democrats alone, elected Obama; in 2016 with Hillary, liberal progressives have no candidate again and many will stay home, vote third Party, or write in a candidate to salve their conscience.

IRAQ WAR CEMETARY

When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?

It is a fact that I am, of course, only one insignificant vote. However, independent and Democrat liberal progressives are millions of votes.

The DNC and Hillary think because Bernie beat both Democrat and Republican candidates to get elected Senator as an independent, he is not legitimate Democrat enough to be the Democratic candidate. So what are other liberal progressive Democrats and independents to think when Hillary and the DNC want them to vote for Hillary in the General election?

Unfortunately, Hillary and the DNC want their cake and eat it too at the expense of liberal progressives; then they blame liberal progressives for not voting in 2000, 2004, and perhaps 2016, and costing the Democratic Party those elections. Do they think Trump is not enough like W. Bush to win an election in 2016; in 2014, 2/3 of the voters didn’t vote, because those voters didn’t have a suitable candidate to elect.

There is definitely something rotten in Denmark?

Where have all the flowers (and brains) gone?

BERNIE SANDERS TRIES TO EXPLAIN, “WHO IS ON FIRST?” THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DOESN’T HAVE A CLUE; READ IT AND WEEP!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Today I am reading, Sanders reflects on Dem race, says poor people ‘don’t vote’”: http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/sanders-reflects-dem-race-says-poor-people-dont-vote?cid=sm_fb_maddow

When Bernie Sanders was asked why he lost elections in States with the highest degree of income inequality, he answered saying, “Well, because poor people don’t vote. I mean, that’s just a fact. That’s a sad reality of American society. And that’s what we have to transform. We have one – as you know, one of the lowest voter turnouts of any major country on Earth. We have done a good job bringing young people in. I think we have done – had some success with lower income people. But in America today – the last election in 2014, 80% percent of poor people did not vote.”

Personally, I have had the experience of living in another country where that never happens, they have equality in real terms of actual legal equality, and I am aware of why America does not provide equal opportunity for poor people to vote, and it should shame Americans, but it doesn’t because Americans don’t know squat about their own country! No offence and pardon my frankness.

First of all, the United States of America does not know, who its citizens are or where they live; this should be a terrible revelation to Americans and it is absolutely true!

Our American forefathers provided in the Constitution for America to establish records of their people, requiring a census every ten years; in 1787, that was about the best America could do. Unfortunately too many Americans today, actually avoid the Federal census entirely.

CONSTITUTION CONVENION W 1787

But with today’s electronic technology, the United States of America could have electronic records of every citizen and non-citizen living in America, where they live, who they are married to and who their children are; this would be done by an impartial independent government agency, a National Identification Agency. This kind of information is essential to provide information absolutely necessary to a democratic government, but it hasn’t happened because too many Americans claim this is, a “violation of their privacy”.

Note; the U.S. Constitution does not provide governmental privacy for Americans, and particularly no prohibition on the Federal Government knowing who is residing in America, who are citizens, who are legal residents, who are authorized to be employed in America, who is eligible to vote, and who are visitors?

Every person living in American should be required to have their National Identification System information registered in the county where they are living. Today, that is electronically possible.

Other civilized democratic nations have National Identification Systems; in those countries it is illegal to employ anyone not authorized to work and they must be authorized by the National Identification System before they can be paid. If an employer hires a person not qualified to be employed, they are severely punished. These countries have no severe immigration problems or illegal employment problems like those of America.

When there is an election, the National Identification System mails a notice to all citizens eligible to vote, advising them when and where they should vote, and what the issues are they are voting on; it is not possible for a political party to enact voter suppression legislation!

With a voting system implemented by a National Identification System, it would be possible for America to have direct elections for all political candidates and it would be possible for American to have a national referendum on important issues, which would put an end to political infighting within and between the Legislative, Judicial, and Executive branches of American government; the People would not be totally dependent upon “representative” governance; more power would be with the People.

Please Americans, rally the American government to establish a National Identification System that will eliminate Illegal Immigration, voter fraud and voter suppression, illuminate the need for a further census every ten years, and provide our Federal Government with adequate information about our population. The truth and electronic technology would set the People free, and all people, rich and poor, would be able to vote!

Our Constitutional forefathers created the best democracy possible for the times and technology; but they also had the foresight to provide for changes and amendments to the Constitution, based on the culture and technology of the future. Today America desperately needs to change our Constitution for the Twenty-First Century society and technology.

God bless America!

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HILLARY CLINTON GETS YET ANOTHER ENDORSEMENT, THIS TIME FROM CHARLES KOCH!

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Today, I’m reading that John Birch Society billionaire Charles Koch, endorsing Hillary Clinton for President among other things: “Charles Koch: Clinton Might Make Better President Than Republican Candidates”: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/koch-clinton-president-republicans_us_571c35c5e4b0d912d5fee371

In case voters of both party’s missed the interview with the John Birch Society Charles Koch, they might find this interesting:

“Asked if he could support Clinton over the Republicans, Koch responded, “We would have to believe her actions would be quite different than her rhetoric. Let me put it that way.”

KOCK CHARLES WIN BIO AND WORTH 25 BIL

In fact, Hillary is a self-professed “moderate”, meaning she is NOT a liberal progressive and she is NOT a conservative, Hillary is in fact a “Neither-Nor” or a Democrat Republican-Lite!

So as President, anything Hillary actually does, or decision she makes, will depend upon whether or not she finds it personally rewarding, like when Mrs. Clinton was a Senator and was voting for the W. Bush Iraq Invasion Resolution in 2002, with other Republican Senators.

HILLARY AND BERNIE

“Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch, in an interview to air on Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” program, said that in some respects Bill Clinton had been a better president than George W. Bush, who Koch said had increased government spending. Then when asked if Hillary Clinton would be a better president than the Republicans currently running, he said, “It’s possible, it’s possible.”

Of course, President Bill Clinton signed into law the NAFTA Trade Treaty sending jobs to Mexico and cheap labor, and being Bill’s wife is Hillary’s basic asset.

So, all those Republicans, have been bad-mouthing Hillary for naught! Pity.

QUESTION, IS BERNIE SANDERS READY TO CONCEDE TO HILLARY AND THE CENTRIST DEMOCRATIC PARTY DC ESTABLISHMENT?

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

Today, I’m reading, “Bernie Sanders Talks Conceding, Uniting Democratic Party”: http://realtimepolitics.com/2016/04/22/bernie-sanders-talks-conceding-uniting-democratic-party-video/

This is what Bernie said, “Well, first of all, I’ve got to find out what her platform is, what the views are that she is going to be bringing forth, to what degree she will adopt many of the ideas that I think are extremely popular and I think very sensible. I want to see the Democratic party have the courage to stand up to big money interests in a way that they have not in the past, take on the drug companies, take on Wall Street, take on the fossil-fuel industry, and I want to see them come up with ideas that really do excite working families and young people in this country.”

Hillary cannot and will not meet those demands, she and the Democratic Party “owe” Wall Street; so, Bernie isn’t actually conceding!

HILLARY CROWNED BY DEBBI WASSERMAN SCHULTZ

Bernie just gave his demands; he doesn’t want to be Secretary of State or Vice President; he wants justice and equal opportunity for the American working Middle Class and Poor People and Hillary and the Democratic Party are obligated to Wall Street!

No other candidate of the Democratic Party could have done what Bernie has done; that’s why Bernie had to defeat both Democrat and Republican candidates for Senate to win his seat in the Senate as an “Independent”. The two American political parties are corrupted!

It appears to me, that if Hillary wins the nomination and loses the election for President, there will be a total realignment of political parties in America, and both Democratic and Republican parties will be history, like the Whigs. For example, I refer you to the birth of the GOP and election of Abe Lincoln, the first Republican President, and he was from my home town in Decatur Illinois where he was first nominated for President.

REPUBLICAN CLOWN CAR 2

Meanwhile, 2016 to 2020 is going to be devastating for America! Prepare for the worst!

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA APPEARS DOOMED TO DISAPPEAR AS A COMPASSIONATE DEMOCRATIC LIGHTHOUSE DEDICATED TO WORLD PEACE; THE U.S.A. IS EVOLVING INTO A FASCIST STATE AND DANGEROUS TO THE WORLD AT LARGE.

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

Today American voters are totally ignorant of American and world history and the advancement of oligarchy (fascism) in the United States of America. As a retired public school American history teacher, I accept the blame, except it wasn’t me, I really tried to do my part. Where incompetent American history teachers left off, the corporate controlled main-stream censored news media took over, and now control American minds.

Unfortunately, too many of my history teacher colleagues were either ignorant of issues, afraid of the anti-Communism social movement, or intrigued by White Supremacist President Andrew Jackson, responsible for the “Trail of Tears” of Native Americans, and believed the only good Indian was a dead Indian; I apologize for my colleagues.

JOE MCCARTHY 1 GRAPHIC GOOD

My teacher colleagues were constantly warning me that I would be “fired” for teaching actual history, like the Labor Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, and the John Birch Society!

In the 1950’s and 1960’s, Communism was the only issue, and the result was: “The Communist Control Act (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) is a piece of United States federal legislation, signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower on 24 August 1954, which outlawed the Communist Party of the United States and criminalized membership in, or support for the Party or “Communist-action” organizations and defined evidence to be considered by a jury in determining participation in the activities, planning, actions, objectives, or purposes of such organizations.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Control_Act_of_1954.

KOCH BROTHERS 1

And thus it was that Communism, which was never a real threat in America; became illegal and American John Birch Society fascism won a toe-hold in America that has blossomed in 21st Century American plutocratic oligarchy. It never entered the mind of Congress, to make fascism illegal in America.

Today we have the W. Bush Wars of Aggression for the PNAC and Corporate America, the Citizens United decision by the Scalia Neocon Republican majority of the Supreme Court, Court approved voter suppression, elimination of civil rights legislation, a fascist takeover of the State of Wisconsin by the John Birch Society Koch brother’s lackey Gov. Walker, and today’s herd of fascist Republican war monger Right Wing gun-toting candidates for President.

Presently, America’s herd of war mongering Corporate American super PAC Republican Presidential candidates and a Republican-Lite super PAC “moderate” Democratic Hillary Clinton is running for president, and liberal progressive democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders being thrown under the bus by the Democratic Party, the DNC, and centrist DC Establishment Democrats. America is damned!

The American People appear to be lemurs, leaping from the cliffs of American Constitutional democracy into the abyss of American White Supremacist Fascism. Pity.

“Where have all the flowers gone?”

HILLARY, LOGROLLING, POLITICAL DECISIONS, TRAGIC REPERCUSSIONS, PRESIDENTS, CONSCIENCE, REASONING, HOW, AND WHY?

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Today, a good friend wrote and wondered why I would not vote for Sec. Hillary Clinton, to keep a worse Republican candidate from becoming President. And, it’s complicated and I felt obligated to explain my reasoning; so I wrote him and said, no offence, but I see things differently.

When it comes to analyzing candidates, I look at their record and individual decisions. We all make good and bad decisions, all humans do. But the important thing is, why and how were those decisions made.

There is a political term called “logrolling”; it is defined: “U.S. Politics. the exchange of support or favors, especially by legislators for mutual political gain as by voting for each other’s bills.”

As I see the candidates’ records, Hillary is all about ‘logrolling’ and Bernie her Democratic primary opponent is not. That means a lot to me, because serving in government is all about making decisions, who benefits from them, and WHY THE PERSON MADE THAT DECESION.

Why did Hillary vote for the W. Bush Iraq Invasion Resolution in 2002, voting with Republican Senators in the Senate; her vote didn’t make a difference, so she had to have a valid reason for voting for it. Can you see that?

IRAQ WAR CEMETARY

And to me, any vote permitting the Iraq Invasion was wrong; I knew it was wrong in 2002, and so did a lot of Congressmen who voted against it, like Bernie Sanders. There is no excuse; the vote smells of ‘logrolling’ to me, and I can never forgive Hillary for her vote. And, I have good valid reasons!

For me, I have concluded that I cannot trust Hillary for making decisions for the right reasons; I see Hillary making decision in exchange for something else, I see Hillary making decisions for the purpose of furthering her ambitions, but what I don’t see Hillary doing is making decisions for the benefit of the majority, the working Middle Class and Poor who expects their government to work for their benefit and that is why voters vote for them. Bernie has made a lifetime career of working for workers, he has an impeccable record; for me he is the perfect candidate.

Labor unions are the only voice of the working Middle Class and Poor. And Corporate America and their main stream news media have unfortunately, convinced many working Americans that labor unions are bad!

Also, Corporate America taught secretaries that they were not secretaries, instead they were “administrative assistants”, therefore not labor. Corporate America taught computer programmers that they were not computer programmers, they were “Engineers” and not labor.

LABOR UNIONS  IF UNIONS ARE NEEDED WHYY CORP SPEND BILLIONS TO DESTROY

Have you noticed Bernie talking to his supporters calling them “brothers” and “sisters”, and when he tells them good-bye he says, “in solidarity”! Those are labor union terms and I have discovered that most working people that I know, are not even aware of it. The anthem of the labor movement and unions is entitled, “Solidarity forever”.

It sound frivolous to kids and adults today, but it is serious business to devout and dedicated union members; the history of the labor movement is about union members who fought and died for such things as an 8 hour work day, instead of 10, and a 40 hour work week instead of a 60 hour work week. Workers take there hours for granted today; but it wasn’t in my father’s day.

Today, Republicans and Corporate America want to make labor unions and collective bargaining illegal; they actually want to eliminate labor unions.

Gov. Walker of Wisconsin is a prime example; he and the Koch brothers supporting him have made teachers unions and collective bargaining illegal in Wisconsin and they tried adapt the anti-labor Taft Hartley Act in Wisconsin but it was unconstitutional, based on the Wisconsin Constitution.

Personally, I’ve never heard Hillary Clinton mention Labor Unions except when they endorsed her for reasons unknown, but those unions who endorsed Hillary, were primarily women labor leaders, and women who had never ever, “fought the fight”.

So, I ask myself what has Hillary ever done for the benefit of labor unions and labor; what has Hillary ever done as Senator or Secretary of State to have World Peace? Some say she is better than the Republican alternative, but I’m not convinced, based on her decisions of the past.

I need a valid reason to vote for Hillary, and I presently I have none!

ABOUT AMERICA’S FIRST PRESIDENT WITH A VAGINA? WHAT’S IT GONNA BE LIKE?

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Today, I’m reading, “An All-Female Ticket? ‘No Question’ It Could Happen, Clinton’s Campaign Says”: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-female-running-mate-vp_us_5718a973e4b024dae4f11494

Hillary Clinton is now thinking about her presidency and considering an all-female ticket!

HILLAREY BEST SHOUTING WITH FISTS

So, I thought of several women that Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton could choose as a Vice Presidential candidate for an all-female Democratic ticket.

Hillary wants to work closely with Republicans, and Sarah Palin might make a good female Vice President; the Vice President doesn’t have to do anything except preside over the Senate and Sarah would like that and could handle it, if she could “open-carry”.

PALIN BIKINI GUN
GOV. SARAH PALIN APPEARS DEFINITELY TO BE A FEMALE CANDIDATE

Another female Vice Presidential candidate to meet Hillary’s need, might be a surprise candidate of reconciliation; say Monica Lewinski?

If Hillary is the candidate, this is certainly going to be an interesting election year. So much has been made of having a first female President; it seem the only qualification a candidate needed was a vagina. And, I don’t have one!

Personally, I have always wanted a female President, and admire female leadership like Golda Meier, for example; she was a highly respected American but became Israel’s President; yea, think about it, an American female President of Israel.

And I have always thought the first female President of the United States should be an outstanding female with outstanding attributes and not just have a vagina; my choice would have been my own mother. Mom was exceedingly intelligent, made excellent decisions, was accepted and loved by everyone, hated war, and she had compassion for all humankind. Mom was nothing like Hillary.

Then there is this thing about having the first Jewish President?

TODAY’S CIVIL RIGHTS HERESY, WHITE SUPREMACY, AND NATIVE AMERICANS!

Monday, April 18th, 2016

Today, I was reading, “Anti-Slavery Hamilton May Get To Stay On $10 Bill While Genocidal Slaver Jackson Gets Pushed Off The $20”: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/anthony-hamilton-andrew-jackson-10-20-bills_us_5713b059e4b0060ccda384a6

The Treasury Department is considering removing President Andrew Jackson’s picture from the twenty-dollar bill and replacing it with a picture of a female, and White Supremacists are opposed to removing Jackson picture.

Personally, I would suggest that President Jackson’s image be replaced by the image of a native-American female heroine, like Nanyehi, which means, “she who walks among the spirit people”; her English name is Nancy Ward: http://www.nanyehi.com/about-nanyehi.html

American twenty dollar, Andrew Jackson

American twenty dollar, Andrew Jackson

President Andrew Jackson is the President who took the Cherokee Native American’s land in Tennesee and North Carolina from them and had law passed requiring all Native Americans move east of the Mississippi River.

That was when my great, great Grandfather Elias Walker, who fought for America in the War of 1812 and was a Cherokee half breed, had to move out of Tennessee, and he moved our family to Illinois, to avoid President Jackson’s persecution and “Trail of Tears”.

TRAIL OF TEARS W STORY ON IT

My great, great Grandfather Walker was later assassinated in Tennessee when he returned a few years later to Tennessee to take care of some unfinished business about his property there; his murderer was never known.

And my great, great Grandfather Elias Walker’s father, Elias Senior, fought in the Revolutionary War (on the Right Side of course).

Certainly, I am no fan of and I have no respect for the White Supremacist U.S. President, and also War of 1812 hero, Andrew Jackson; but it is the Southern White Supremacist Republicans in Congress who want to retain Jackson’s photo on American currency, today.

“Where have all the flowers gone?”
