• With the election just days away sometimes I wonder whether it is even worth taking the time to vote. It doesn't seem to me that either candidate is concerned with the issues that I consider to be important.

    They talk about the economy in general but offer very few specifics. They talk about Medicare, but neither seem to have solutions that I find acceptable. Cut, Cut, Cut. Do they not see that it should be Fix, Fix, Fix.
    Then it would be a workable solution to some of the immediate healthcare needs of the senior and disabled.

    They need to continue to focus on the abuse within the program but also they should concern themselves with hospital costs, the money they are reimbursing the supplemental plans. It seems to me that if someone is paying for both medicare and a supplemental and they still are having to pay unacceptable co-pays and the costs of some medications then there is a problem within both the choices.

    They need to take the money they are paying the supplemental hosts

  • Help a Telemarketer Out

    One of the many reasons to love the great, late TV show "Seinfeld" was the running gag about the clever ways Jerry Seinfeld handled telemarketing calls. One time, he told the guy pushing telephone services that he'd be happy to talk, but he'd need to call the guy back at home. The telemarketer, when asked for his home phone number, demurred. "Oh, I guess you don't want people calling you at home?" asked Jerry. "No," said the telemarketer. "Well, now you know how I feel," said Seinfeld and hung up the phone. The live studio audience went crazy.

    I used to do stuff like that to telemarketers, too. My husband got our kids into a fit of hysterical laughter one time when he took the phone out of my hand, seeing the exasperated expression on my face. i had just gotten my first word in edgewise, cutting off the telemarketer to say, "Now, Clarence - " when me husband grabbed the phone and took over. "Is this Clarence?" he asked, in an exuberant near-yell. "Clarence, is that you?" "Uh, yes,"

  • The individual, who vehemently expresses hate for a selected group of people based on their gender or race, while pretending they like them, is being dishonest with themselves.

    I met such an individual, the experience was not pleasant. We both were very uncomfortable. Upon meeting this lady, I greeted her with Hello, how are you?

    She said "Hi." Then after a long pause, while staring into space, she said " I hate white people." After a brief pause, she further stated, while continuing to stare into space, "I can't stand them."

    Who would make such a stupid statement to a stranger?

    Neither of us said anything else.

    When the "White People" arrived, this woman who had just said she hate the whole race, started talking friendly with them and calling them honey, and turned on such a charm, that appeared to be love.

    My thoughts were, don't ever trust this woman, and leave anything you are going to eat or drink in her presence.

  • These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

    a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

    Source of information: Proverbs 6:16-19 (K.J.V)

    Note: This information is a mirror for each of us to view or character daily, just as we do our physical features. Many of us use some kind of product to improve on our physical features to keep our appearance looking desirable, because it matters to us how others view us.

    Here we get the opportunity to check our inner features. For those of us who look like these images inside, the mirror shows some disgusting things that are very offensive to God because they hurt others.
