Buy Me A Coffee? Give The Kitties A Good Home.

If you've enjoyed my blog and found giggles, value, good information or it just helped you waste your time while you were supposed to be working please consider donating $5/$10 or whatever amount your heart and wallet can allow. THINK BIG! Think of it as buying your bloggy friend a cup of coffee over a nice chat. Simply leave me your email in the comments section and I'll email you the paypal information.

Why am I asking for your donations now? Well, after writing this blog for more than two years I've found myself in a position of needing more income to throw at a new landlord so that I can secure a new home for me and the kitties. The one thing we can always count on in life is change, often unexpected. That's where this blogger is at the moment.

With so many big and small businesses that have closed, and so many people who are out of work I'm finding it harder and harder to make ends meet. Now it looks as though this government take over of the student loan  system will put thousands more people out of work. Just another hit at the banking industry.

To some it sounds good in theory but those people never realize the domino effect of these decisions. With less and less people to buy my services it is less and less money in my pocket to pay my rent and bills.

So if your wallet will allow your heart to provide,  this is your favorite ranting blogger asking for your generous donations so that I can find the four of us a new home.

Here's a post with all the dirty details explaining why I have had to issue this plea for financial help.

Thank you to Jess from Thoughtful Reflections for making the first donation in the amount of $25.
Also thank you to @kocart on twitter for her donation of $30!!
Thank you Bette Jo and Janie Lynn for your donation of $100. Please send me another comment to let me know how I can
attribute this on the blog by way of a link so others can find you.

Thank you to the anon. donor who made a donation of $100.
Thank you to Cheri @somuchpain for her very kind donation of $30!!!

How Your Donation Will Help

On March 31, 2010 I posted a plea for donations to help me raise funds to afford to move.  For those of you who are interested in more details of this situation here goes.

When I moved into this apt. 2.5 yrs ago I never thought I'd be moving so soon again. I had no idea that when I signed the lease the landlord would not at least clean up the apt from the last tenant before I moved in. But when I came to see the apt after I was given the keys, to my dismay I had to hire someone to help me clean this filth. What I could never clean is the white paint on the hardwood floors that the landlord dropped when painting the apt walls and ceiling. There were holes in the walls inside the cabinets that I had to fix myself and the radiator (heat) was missing parts that enable you to turn off or on the heat. I had to pay for all those things myself.

Within a few months of moving into my apt. the light fixture in the bedroom stopped working. Experience had shown me that asking for anything that needs to be fixed in your apt gets you on the sh*t list with your landlord and so I just chose to ignore it. Then the light in my small hallways stopped working. I chose to ignore it. Then the bathroom light fixture stopped working. I had no choice but to contact the Super to fix the light. The bathroom light was fixed but the landlord called to ask me what happened. Ugh. I didn't even ask for the rest to be fixed at that time.

A few months ago I woke up and found that my television would not turn on and the cable box was off. I checked the rest of the apt and the cable box and television worked in the other room I have. I promptly called the Super. He opened the junction box and flipped the switch and the lights came back on. About 5 minutes after he left it shut off. I then tried to flip the switch myself and the same thing happened. After the Super came back to see what was happening we learned that there was severe damage to the wires in the wall and I had to push hard to get them to get me the proper electrical team to come and fix the wires.

About 6 weeks ago give or take there was another owner on the sixth floor that decided to do construction without proper permits and had tools that were so violent that it shook the building and caused the window casings in my apt to dislodge from the rest of the sheet-rocked wall. In order to get that to stop I had to call the city of NY and file a complaint with the Dept. of Bldgs. They issued a stop work order and thanked me for alerting them because they not only were doing who the heck knows that shook the building so hard but were making electrical changes without a licensed electrician and could have put all our lives in harms way causing a fire.  The building management was annoyed with me for making the complaint and marched into my apt telling me that nothing was wrong with the structure of the wall.

You can see the severe damage as well as the un-insultated wall of the apt. My apartment is on a corner and half the apt is an exterior wall.

About 1 week after a small portion of the wires were fixed allowing the lights to work in the bathroom, hallway, bedroom & part of the second room near the exterior wall to work again I noticed that the wall was brown. I mentioned this to the building's board president when he asked me how things were working. He looked baffled.

A few weeks ago we had a huge Noreaster with torrential rains and heavy winds that were classified as level one hurricane strong. During that time water began to come gushing through the ceiling and heavily seeping through the walls of my bathroom and closet. Although I called every contact person including the Super and the building management no one was returning my calls and when I finally got someone I was told I wasn't priority. I finally called my landlord after having to make complaints to the city of New York to let him know that the management was screaming at me and angry with me and told me that since I made complaints to the city and they were fined I would not get anyone to come fix it. Retribution.

The landlord asked me to keep records of everything and so I have. But only about 1 week after my initial call to him about the situation he informed me that the terms of our agreement about the following years lease to be offered were null and void.


I was given a very suspect story that he is having financial problems and will be moving his family into the apt next door which he also owns and that he is going to break part of the adjoining wall into the apt. where I reside and combine the apts and making my apt. a very small efficiency apt. If I want to pay the same amount of rent he told me I could stay.

I think it's obvious he knew what that answer would be. As do you my loyal readers.

I attempted to negotiate but he would not even make a counter offer. I do not believe his story. That is the bottom line.

I cannot let his financial problems and stories become my problems too. And so here I am asking for donations on my site so that we can move.

I believe in spirit and this must be their way of getting us to move on from this unhealthy apartment.  However I was not financially prepared to move at this time, especially with the economy being so bad and not having nearly the income I had even one year ago.

I found a great apt just around the corner from where I live right now. The rent is similar to what I have been paying but the size is 5 times larger with huge closets (something lacking in this apt.) That apt and most in NYC require a broker's fee plus first and last months rent.

So I've turned to you, my friends and blog readers for help. I need to raise about $2000 to be able to move. That is in addition to the first and last months rent I am scrounging to put together from my small income.

I have a paypal account and if you send me your email address and the amount you'd be able to donate to me for this purpose I will send you email through paypal for you to make the donation.

Leo, KC, Sadie and I are most grateful to any of you that can help. Every dollar adds up and hopefully together we can raise the $2k needed so we can get the heck out of this moldy electric fire trap.

Thank you.

Idiots on Idiomatic Expressions

I've been listening to the stories of "outrage" from liberals against Tea Partyers and Republicans. Our words are being attacked, we are called mean or accused of incitement. And this BEGS for a response.

But before I do that I must address what I feel is the real issue that is at the core of our confrontation that is at a desperate crossroads IMHO. Liberals and Democrats are completely married to the idea of their position of entitlement and we, Independents and Conservatives are married to the idea of logic and reason. The only result in this situation can be a power play.

I'm fully aware that I'm writing this post based on logic, so it will most likely fall on deaf ears to those it needs to reach and preaching to the choir to the ones who will be receptive. But I'm going for it anyway.

There was great uproar over Sarah Palin's twitter post about the usage of the word crosshairs. Joy Behar accused Palin on The View of "support for the increasingly violent behavior directed towards Democrats".

This is utter ignorance and nonsense. The English language is riddled with phrases that don't mean the exact words we use. These are called IDIOMATIC PHRASES. This is a staple of our language. And it's a part of our culture.  Take for example "I love you to death." If it were up to the liberals and Marxists in the Democratic party they'd have you believe that you really wanted the death of that person when in fact that phrase actually has the opposite meaning.

Palin used the word and image "crosshair" to mean target. Now ask yourself honestly if Palin had simply used the word "target" would there have been the same allegations.

OK now look at the definition of target:

Target: an object, usually marked with concentric circles, to be aimed at in shooting practice or contests.
and also can be used to mean:

a goal to be reached

Nuances are very important in the English language. To completely ignore this fact of the culture of our language is disingenuous at best. The English language culture is filled with Hyperbole and Idiomatic phrases. Each one of us use these phrases every day and never realize it. But if you've ever had a conversation with someone who is not a native English speaker you'll instantly realize just how much we rely on these phrases for normal everyday communications.

However it appears that to far too many liberals that simple words used with HYPERBOLE is just too hard a concept for them to decipher. This is most likely a direct result of social promotion rather than passing based on learning and skills set proficiency. 


obvious and intentional exaggeration.

an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as “to wait an eternity.”

an expression whose meanings cannot be inferred from the meanings of the words that make it up 

Can you just imagine the twisting of the following idiomatic expressions by these liberals if Palin or other Republican leaders used these phrases in any of their public statements or printed materials?

"takes the cake"
"I'll be a monkey's Uncle"
"kiss my ass"
"a lick and a promise"
"a little birdie told me"
"penny for your thoughts?"
"a pretty penny"
"a steal"
"a watched pot never boils"
"about face"
"above board"
"ace up your sleeve"
"acid test"
"Adam's apple"
"last straw"
"laugh a minute"
"lay down the law"
"lend an ear"
"tackle an issue"
"take a nose dive"
"takes guts"
"taken for a ride"
Now read this and imagine their heads exploding.

Don't Think For Yourself

I was going to write a debate-style post to an opinion article here but as I kept reading this article I hit the following sentence and as a former roommate of mine back in the 1990's once pointed out to me, let them keep talking and they will show the fools that they are all by themselves, here in their very own words explains who they are, [if you're new to my blog, they=marxist left] how they think, and just how they've taken over the minds of my own generation and younger.

Without further adieu:

"Cribbing from Horowitz, but adding his own very special embellishments, Simpson has penned an 18,000-word, six-part exposé of the "Cloward-Piven strategy," which can be found on the websites Americanthinker.com and Americandaughter.com. I have read it so you don't have to."

Anti-Semite in the White House

Pamela Geller has put into words what I have been feeling, screaming, ranting and begging people to understand. So I'm posting her very words here. LOUD AND CLEAR! For GOD'S sake, for the sake of the 6 Million that were brutally murdered, babies ripped from mother's arms, brains bashed against walls like animals because we are Jews and only because of that...would you wake the fuck up my fellow American Jews and stop worshiping Obama. Save my life if you refuse to save yours!

The Jewish people, both in Israel and the diaspora, seem to be suffering from the Stockholm Syndrome. There can be no logical reason why an American Jew could intellectually excuse Obama’s twenty-year friendship and closeness with the anti-Semitic Farrakhan acolyte Jeremiah Wright. There is no way an American Jew could explain away or rationalize Obama’s connections to Rashid Khalidi, Ali Abunimah, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and know about those connections without knowing what was coming. These Jews (and our history is plagued with them) love ideas, not people. They are so married to their dogma, their ideology, that they cannot, will not, see what is right in front of them. They worship at the church of human secularism. That is their religion. They have no G-d. They merely wearing a Jewish coat, but do not speak for Jews. It is the curse of the Jewish people historically to be betrayed by our own. This is the deepest cut of all.

Are we so broken a people that they shall have died in vain, for nothing? The six million looked like you, laughed like you, denied like you. The six million loved their country -- some were war heroes for Germany in World War I. They too thought the fringe would stay relegated to the margins of society. Fringe, meet White House.

There's a sign at the end of this video that once viewed will explain the need for this next statement.

The "latinos" raped the Native Americans and that is the reason for your brown skin.

Get rid of every last one of them. These people are the enemy within. No more PC garbage! You're here illegally, you do not value my country. You bring your murderous hate speech filled pamphlets denouncing freedom and I'm supposed to "be respectful and nice" about this.

Get every last one of them on a plane back to the country they were born in. Every man, woman and child. No more anchor babies.

American Friends of Likud Issue Press Release

Thursday, March 18, 2010


New York, (March 18, 2010) --- The announcement by the Israeli Interior Ministry of a plan to build additional housing units in Jerusalem some two years from now did not violate the commitment of the Netanyahu government to the Obama Administration not to initiate any new construction in Judea and Samaria for ten months. Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, was conspicuously not included in the moratorium. Even though Prime Minister Netanyahu was surprised by the announcement, he apologized both personally and publicly to Vice President Biden for the embarrassment caused by its timing.

In contrast, the disproportionate, scripted remarks from Secretary of State Clinton to Prime Minister Netanyahu were a pre-meditated exercise by the administration to embarrass and humiliate the democratically-elected leader of a staunch U.S. ally. It follows a pattern of deliberately embarrassing allies such as Britain, France, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic, as well as Israel in 2009, while appeasing bitter enemies such as North Korea and Iran. The failure of the administration to impose on Iran the biting sanctions overwhelmingly approved by both houses of Congress is appalling, yet revealing.

Most disturbingly, the accusation that Israel is placing the lives of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan at greater risk is nothing short of libelous and incendiary.

American Friends of Likud urge the Obama Administration to cease embarrassing the American people when it humiliates our democratic friends and displays weakness toward our autocratic foes.

About American Friends of Likud:

American Friends of Likud (AFL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about Israel and events taking place in the Middle East, and raising a general awareness of Zionism. AFL provides a solid partnership of public support for the State of Israel, its citizens, and its democratically elected officials. While American Friends of Likud maintains realtionships with Israel's Likud party, we remain an independent democratic movement. AFL takes an active role in the World Zionist Congress, joining the World Likud movement in representing the American voice of Likud in Israel.

A FOX is in the Hen House! Saudis Buy FOX

So much for fair and balanced! I've already seen the difference in the coverage and wording of any stories having to do with Israel since this story broke.

The video today is from Noah David Simon
I found him through a link from a FB friend. She's terrific with her sources. The issue regarding the Saudis buying Murdoch is listed in the story with link below the video.

Now I'm going to call out two things I do not agree with Noah on: his use of the word friend from JIDF, I won't go into the reasoning here but if Noah finds this blog and wants to talk to me he can leave me his email in the comments section and his short interlude into how he was leaning prolife and now strongly is prolife. UGH! Just plain wrong. But that topic can take much more time to get into and this post is about FOX news and their betrayal of our trust and their wunderlust for the almighty Saudi never-ended dollar and their betrayal of the American people and Jews worldwide in this "partnership".

From http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.5718/pub_detail.asp

Fox Becomes a Hen? ‘CAIR’ and Imbalance? News Corporation Falls Under Saudi Control
Paul Williams, PhD

Former prominent guests on Fox News, including Walid Shoebat, contend that the News Corporation has surrendered its “fair and balanced” coverage of Islam and events in the Middle East for a fistful of Saudi cash.

Their contention is based on a series of recent developments within the media giant.
The first development was the news that Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corporation, invested $70 million in the Rotana Group, an enterprise owned by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a nephew of Saudi King Abdullah. The Rotana Group operates a host of TV channels throughout the Middle East and is a leading producer of Arabic movies.
Next came Mr. Murdoch’s decision to make Abu Dhabi, the headquarters of the News Corporation’s global media operations in the Middle East.

On Monday, the Fox Business Network announced that it will dispatch a full-time correspondent to the Middle East in order to inform Americans of the unique business opportunities in such places as Syria, a country that provides shelter for Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah and support the insurgents in Iraq.

In the wake of this announcement, Fox news commentators – including Glenn Beck, Charles Krauthammer, A.B. Stoddard and Bill Kristol – condemned Geert Wilders, a well-respected Dutch dignitary and critic of radical Islam, as a “fascist” and a “demagogue.”

Mr. Krauthammer said that Mr. Wilders, who is the leading candidate for Prime Minister in The Netherlands, doesn’t know the difference between Islam and Islamism, a distinction known only to Mr. Krauthammer.

While Mr. Beck labeled Mr. Wilders as a “fascist,” Ms. Stoddard expressed her agreement with Krauthammer and added that “if people like this (Mr. Wilders) are elected to lead Holland it will suffer the consequences.

What caused this denunciation?

Mr. Wilders produced a short documentary on Islam in Holland called Fitna in which he argued that “there is no such thing as ‘moderate Islam’” and that the Prophet Muhammad would “. . . in these days be hunted down as a terrorist.”

In the past, the former member of the Dutch National Parliament was a frequent guest on Fox News. Last February, Bill O’Reilly welcomed Mr. Wilders to America, while condemning a scared Britain for banning him entrance to the country.

Other news about the parent company of Fox News began to surface, including reports that Kingdom Holding owns at least 7 percent of the News Corporation and has become the second largest shareholder in the Murdoch conglomerate. Some speculate that the actual shares controlled by Kingdom Holding through a hedge fund may exceed 25 percent.

Kingdom Holding is owned by Prince Talal, who is called “the Arabian Warren Buffet.”
Listed by Forbes as the world’s 22nd richest person, Prince Talal also owns substantial shares of Time Warner, Apple, eBay, Disney, and Citibank.

As for charity, he gives millions to Hamas and other pro-Palestinian organizations.
Critics say that Prince Talal’s sizeable investment in the News Corporation accounts for Fox News programs critical of Israel, including a series of special reports in which Carl Cameron and Brit Hume alleged that Israel gathered information about the attacks of 9/11 and failed to warn the American people.

Walid Shoebat, a former member of the Palestine Liberation Organization, who converted to Christianity, charges that Fox New now prohibits critics of Islam and Islamic terror from appearing on its broadcasts.

"He himself (Prince bin Talal) said, 'I just had to make a phone call to [tell them to] stop using the word Muslim' regarding the rioting in France," Mr. Shoebat notes. "Bill O'Reilly says to Ibrahim Hooper, the head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), that he is an upstanding citizen. Since when was the head of CAIR an upstanding citizen?"

Mr. Shoebat adds that viewers will no longer be seeing any so-called "Islamophobes" on Fox.

"Today, I'm not invited at Fox News. Neither is Robert Spencer or Brigitte Gabriel," he laments. "But Ibrahim Hooper is invited to speak at Fox News. It used to be that experts on terrorism who are critical of the Islamic views [were] able to get a voice on Fox News. Those days are gone."

Mr. Shoebat says that instead of airing those critical views of Islam, Fox News now legitimizes Hooper, the spokesman for CAIR, a group which he maintains is a front for Islamic terrorists.

Boy What I End Up With On Dates!

So those of you who have followed my blog for a while know that just about two years ago I went on a date with a guy from a speed dating event, had a little too much sangria and walked into a Petco and adopted Leo. I took Leo home and never saw that guy again.

Well on Monday I went into the eyeglass place where I bought my most recent pair of glasses to have them adjust the way they sit on my face, as they had been tilting a little and annoying the hell out of me, but I digress.

Well to my shock and surprise the gentleman who was "helping" me overheard me speaking with his colleague about telling an online local social group I belong to about their services, mentioning the town I live in, and blurts out "Are you on JDate?!?!"

Stunned! OK so I share this all with you on my blog but in my real life I do not advertise my doings and certainly not while I'm in the eyeglass store!

He goes on to blurt out, and boy if you could have seen his facial expressions and body language people, "Yes I know you. I know you from JDate. Once I told you I was divorced you cut me off." And he does the hand gesture over the throat as he says this, like slicing someone's neck.

Now everywhere I go someone thinks they know me, or that I remind them of their long lost sister's best friends aunt's cousins babysitter or something! Truly. Many years ago when I had short hair and before it went gray I almost made a token booth clerk hyperventilate thinking I was Wynona Ryder. Yes yes this was before she was outed for being a clepto!

So I'm telling this guy how it wasn't me. But boy is he insistent. There wasn't much I could do. And saved by the bell, the phone rang and someone was asking for him. I left.

But I was pissed. I was shouted at and called out in public for some rejection issue of his and this really annoyed me. And the more I thought about it the more angry I became.  So I issued a complaint when I arrived home.

Now I'm picking my brain the entire car ride to figure out who this idiot could have been from the, Um, let's see, 5 men that contacted me the entire time I had a subscription??!?! There was ONE guy who lied about his marital status listing he was divorced but then told me via email that he was not divorced but separated and I know that irked the shit out of me and I told him no thanks.

So Mr. Eyeglass guy. Let me tell you what I didn't in the store on Monday. You're a freak! You're a liar. And since Jdate has the check off box to tell people that you're separated and you chose not to check off that box, you're a scam artist. If it was you and we did communicate then you're an even bigger idiot than I originally thought you were. You should have cut your losses when I only thought you were a liar.  Now I think you're a freak and I'm even more proud of my good judgment to nix communication with you. You're pathetic to have held on to this anger over being rejected for all these months and might I suggest therapy before you go back out to the dating pool and behave this way to the rest of the single women out there. None of us deserve your bullshit wrath.

Oh dear loyal readers. I'm getting free glasses this week because of his outburst.

The goods that men bring me to keep adding up. Leo my wonderful yellow boy and awesome new free glasses.

I win!

Can You Tell Me How To Get To Sesame Street

Do you think Leo is singing with me or begging me to stop singing. LOL In my defense, I'm not trying to sing well. ;p

I don't think it matters the key. Listen below and you'll see for yourself.

I really do not think Leo likes when I sing!

Barbie Was Invented By Jews...It's a Conspiracy I Tell Ya! LOL

Israeli Humor From Circulating Email

Israeli Humor at UN

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the
United Nations Assembly and made the world Community smile.

A representative from Israel began: 'Before beginning my talk
I want to tell you something about Moses.
When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought,
'What a good opportunity to have a bath!'
He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water.
When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished.
A Palestinian had stolen them.'

The Palestinian representative jumped up furiously and shouted,
'What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then.'

The Israeli representative smiled and said,
'And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.
