Gun Control

February 16, 2018

As we all know another AWFUL mass shooting has taken place. Once again our legislators put the blame on the lack of gun control and want stronger background checks. I am a gun owner and I have no issue with stronger background checks, but that isn’t going to solve the problem. Background checks would not have revealed that this kid was out to kill people. I am willing to bet that most of these individuals that have committed these heinous crimes didn’t originally have any thing in there background that would have given any indication that they were going to go out and shoot people.

The problem is that these people had something happen in their life that triggered these violent crimes. There is no way to stop this with more gun control. We need people to step up when they suspect someone is going off the rails and alert the authorities. Let the authorities then figure out if the individual owns or has access to guns. They should then be allowed to confiscate the weapons, if they can prove just cause after having the individuals mental health evaluated.

Another thing that should occur is that school employees should be allowed to be trained and armed to protect the facility. There isn’t any way one security person can defend hundreds of students/teachers against an intruder.

I was told of a situation yesterday where an individual in another state was allowed into a school by the elderly, retire bus driver, security guard, just by saying he was going to see this child guidance counselor, without being verified. The individual was allowed to go though the school un-escorted. At the same time a couple was going to the school for other business and the students held the door open to let them in. Is that what is being called a secure facility!

Senators Richard #Blumenthal and Chris #Murphy always jump on the gun control band wagon while playing on everyone’s emotions. Why don’t they try to get more funds for these schools so they can install metal detectors and other security measure. Control in NOT going to solve this problem.

America it’s time we take our country back and stop the BS like this. People from other countries should not be dictating the rules. If they don’t like the way things are then they should get the hell out.

Walgreen Rite-Aid merger

January 31, 2018

My local Rite-Aid pharmacy became a Walgreen’s pharmacy late 2016. What a fiasco this is turning out to be. When I go into the Rite-Aid pharmacy website to refill a prescription it says all my prescriptions have been sold. When I go into the Walgreen’s web site the prescriptions aren’t there. So how do you refill a prescription? Well you have to call the pharmacy, which is a pain when websites exist that SHOULD accommodate this process.

So I called Walgreen’s customer service today. They told me they can’t see the prescriptions the Rite-Aid store (Walgreen’s pharmacy) has because they aren’t on the same system. Really! How do you take over a pharmacy and not put them on the same system! My next question to the rep was, when will this be fixed? I bet you already know the answer! Yup, they DON”T KNOW! Really!

As a retire IT professional, all I can say is this is one of the worse technical merger I have seen. Walgreen’s should be ashamed of the way they did this and the impact it has on their newly acquired Rite-Aid customers.

I am hoping my insurance company tells me that I can get better prices at CVS ( and that it is true) I’ll switch in a heart beat.

Illegal Immigrants! Enough is Enough!

August 8, 2017

This isn’t going to make me any friends but then who cares!

I don ‘t know about all the other Americans in this country but me for one has had enough of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT whining. You came into this country ILLEGALLY, in other words knowingly you broke our laws, made babies got caught an d because you started this all twenty years ago you want this country to have sympathy and let you stay. BULLSHIT, I say. This Reyes guy is taking refuge in New Haven CT (read the story here http://www.wfsb.com/story/36079202/meriden-man-facing-deportation-takes-sanctuary-at-new-haven-church) was ordered deported in 2009 under the Obama administration and nobody had the balls to make it happen. Here we are in 2017 and this government, Under Trump, is trying to make it happen as it should and all the goodie two shoes, like Richard Blumenthal (another ass), want to continue to let him break the law. and stay here. WTF Folks! Why do we have laws if nobody is allowed to enforce them.

This is the second ILLEGAL Immigrant in New Haven that pulled this sanctuary crap and is still here. I understand they don’t want to be separated from their families, and I feel sorry for them but they knew what they were doing when they created this situation.So as a good government we should throw the whole family out so they can stay together. Problem solved!

You know what else irks me! These people have been in this country fror over twenty years and they STILL DON”T speak English! WTF!

This crap has to stop now! Stop bashing Trump for trying to do what is right. He didn’t make the laws, he just trying to enforce them just like he said he would when he was voted in!

Enough is enough! Throw the Illegal Immigrants out! NOW!!!!!

 

Oh Here we go, RIOTING

November 10, 2016

So I guess rioting and protesting is the way people who are unhappy with the election results are going display their displeasure. The news say it is Hispanics, Muslims and other minority groups doing this. Well guess what folks! IT”S TOO LATE!!!!!! My guess is it’s those that are here illegally! Those that are afraid of being deported. OH well, now that we have a incoming president that has the balls to get you out,  I guess you are going to get what you have had coming for a long! Run you bastards RUN!!!

For the rest of you are are here legally and aren’t happy, I guess you could leave the country.

2016 Elections

November 9, 2016

Well Mr Trump, now that we got you elected I hope you understand that we expect you to follow through on your campaign promises to rid the country of illegal immigrants, build a wall and bring jobs back to the country along with everything else you said you were going to do. We know it’s not going to be easy but it is necessary! GOOD LUCK!

2016 Elections

July 29, 2016

Well now that the conventions are over and once again we have heard all the “Politicians” lie and feed us the same BS, election after election after election, and I do mean all the “Politicians” both Democrats and Republicans, it is time to decide who to vote for. For me it will be easy! I am sick of all the “Politicians”, local, state  and nation! None of them care about us. They only care about themselves and say whatever they think it will take to get elected, over and over and over again.  Why, because they are “Politicians”! Do you really think a “Politician”, which are pretty wealthy are going to do ANYTHING to take money away from the wealthy? Hell, no! We always hear how the middle class is going to be taken care of and the top 1% is going to pay more. Really! I don’t think so.

Well if you are sick of all the crap they feed us everyday, the we need to stop electing “POLITICIANS”!!!

I’m voting for Donald! He’s NOT, clearly NOT, a “POLITICIAN”!

and if you don’t like, guess what I don’t really care!!!

TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!

Connecticut Handicap permit renwal

June 27, 2016
I just received a letter with a form from the DMV that states I need to complete the form, have the doctor complete a portion of the form and submit it to have my already LIFETIME handicap permit renewed. Renew a permit that was issues as a LIFETIME permit. What the heck!
 
I contacted the DMV and they told me that the law was changed six years ago, now my LIFETIME permit will expire when my driver license expires and that I will need to renew the permit every 6 years. How can this government of ours arbitrarily cancel a permit that was issued for the lifetime of the permittee?
 
I understand there are people out there that are not the permittee of the permit they are using for one reason or another. This isn’t going to stop them.
Why should we senior citizens have to go through this hassle and possible expense because of a few dishonest people. There has to be a better way to eliminate these people. Maybe all we should be required to do is show our permit when we renew our license and then the name associated with the permit could be validated against the drivers license. If it doesn’t match then the permit could be confiscated right then and there. Also there would not be added expense incurred by the state, who can’t afford to be paying to mail these renewal notices out, and no expense would be incurred by the permittee, if their doctor charges to fill out forms like many do today.
 
Needless to say I am very annoyed!
 
Is anyone else?

The GOP and Donald Trump

March 18, 2016

I don’t know about everyone else but I am sick of hearing that the GOP leaders are looking for ways to stop Donald Trump. What the hell is wrong with them? Oh wait, they are politicians so they think the can do whatever they want! Well GOP, how about listing to all the people in America that WANT him, as the primary’s and caucuses are showing.

Aren’t the people suppose to decide who runs for President?
Not just a handful of old school thinkers!

So America, if you want Donald Trump for President, jump on the social media platforms and start voicing your opinions. Tell these GOP, know it all, leaders that you have had enough of their bullshit and that YOU WANT TRUMP!!

Without Trump running for President you get Hillary! GOD HELP US!!!

Burnside Ave Bike Lane-what a joke

October 18, 2015

The state of Connecticut, after spending God knows how much money making Burnside Ave into four lanes, has now spent some ridiculous amount of money to change it back to two lanes and put in “BIKE LANES”. Well they thought they were going to be used as bike lanes!

If you drive down Burnside Ave, from Manchester, you will not that solid white line have been painted to designate two lanes in each direction, with a diagonal white line at the beginning (at least in one spot, another joke) to supposedly tell people to move to the left and NOT drive in the right (bike) lane. Well that isn’t working, you see most people in this East Hartford, or anywhere, appear to not know what SOLID lines mean! They cross them any damn time the please. Even the buses ignore them. SO as you drive on Burnside Ave you will find vehicles driving in the so called “bike lane”. EVEN the POLICE!!!!

The problem is that the “BIKE LANE” is NOT clearly marked as such. There should be bicycles painted in the lane just like any normal bike lane would have. This “bike lane” is so confusing because people don’t know what it is. That coupled with the people that don’t know not to cross a solid line is just leading to accidents.

Then I ask myself, many people I know, and now you , how many bikes have you seen on Burnside Ave? I have seen only one all summer. So why did they put the stupid lanes in?

This needs to be fixed!!!! Its an accident waiting to happen!
