Springtime

Posted in Current Events, Randomness on March 21, 2013 by vk08

It is supposedly spring.

You wouldn’t know it looking out the window, it’s cold, snow adorns the ground, it’s cold, did I say it’s COLD?  Sometimes we get late season storms and this year has been brutal for the amount of snow and ice we’ve gotten, but it reminds us all living up here in New England just how much we hate the extremes we’ve been getting the past few years.  Wintertime temps in the 10s and 20s and Summertime temps, in July, in the 98 to 105 range. Ever since the Freak October Snowstorm in 2011 it’s just been getting worse.

Is this Global Warming? Probably not, it’s probably the Earth going through one of it’s little temper tantrums, and saying… Woah Ice Age needs to happen, I sometimes wonder what New York City and Bahston would look like buried under a TON of Ice and snow….

Well hopefully April will be milder and a little nicer, can’t wait to dig out the lawnmower again 😉

Twas the day before Christmas.

Walmart........ same scene as everywhere today.

And all the crazy idiots were out trampling each other just to get that new Tickle Me Elmo or whatever it is that’s hot this year.  I swear even just going down to Price Chopper was a chore today, 43 people in each line to get out, asiles so crowded that you couldn’t even move and heaven help you if you had to try and maneuver a shopping cart.. Granted I only needed a few small things (Cool whip and carrots) but jeeeeez you would think that will the amount of time that people know Christmas is coming that they would have at least done the bulk of their stuff maybe just maybe over the past few weeks?

 

Talk about Mob mentality, I’m just glad noone was trampled…

Where be the snow??

Max Power – CL&P’s Art of Deception and Diversion

Posted in Bad Service List, Current Events, Expose and Investigative on November 7, 2011 by vk08

I just got off of seven, yes seven days in the dark and cold without electricity ( I was just informed that it was in actuality 8 days).  You may wonder why someone who lives in the state that pays the HIGHEST rates for power in the United States was without power for a full 7 days following a freak winter Nor’easter.  Well the answer is simple, and his name is Jeff Butler.  Mr Butler has a history of making up stories and well…. embellishing half truths to cover up for corporate stupidity.  Just look back 3 months during Hurricane Irene, and you’ll understand.

However, now that the power is coming back and stories from towns are coming out that crews were pulled from critical areas, that crews were sitting around doing nothing, that crews didn’t have a CLUE what they were supposed to be doing (and don’t get me wrong, the out of state people that came in are doing a superb job, they just haven’t been given good direction by CL&P) And reports form people that CL&P employees were laughing at the lack of power and telling people that they should be grateful that CL&P was even working on it, almost looking like they withheld power just to make a point that they were in charge and controlled it all.

What needs to happen now in very short order is simple.

1) We as a state need to get together and hold hearings and investigations into why CL&P was not on top of this from Day One, and took 3 days before they started restoration.

2) We as a state need to hold the Government responsible to follow through ont he promises to investigate, legislate and hold CL&P accountable.  Also to tell CL&P’s millions of dollars in funds to lobby for lenient sentences and regulations, that we will not be swayed by dollars in the pocket.

3) Make the shareholders and execs take a hit on this one, we ratepayers are sick and tired of having this burden placed upon us, just to have more shoddy service.

If we follow though and remember to NEVER FORGIVE AND NEVER FORGET, we may be able to effect change.

The Great Self Help Sham

Posted in Current Events, Philosophical, Randomness, Ranting and Raving on September 24, 2010 by vk08

It is always good when one finds that they have a character flaw, admits it, works on it and moves on.  It is NOT good when one finds they have a character flaw, starts going to every self help thing they can go to, reads all the self help books and starts finding imaginary flaws that may not really even been there.

I have an acquaintance, used to be a semi-friend (until I gave her some advice she asked for then pissed all over me for it by blasting me out publicly on her blog and not even stating it they way I did) and after she totally ditched someone I care about in a way that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, then claimed she was being stalked to save face to her one fan, herself (yes she has 6 separate accounts to make it look like she has readers) This person is now stuck on Breakthrough: The Movie, a complete and total sham of a film that claims to be all about self help and how you can do better and fix your life etc…

If you really need that kind of help see a licensed professional, not some self appointed know it all that’s just out for your money.

OMG.. Part 5 Billion and One

Porn Star Turned Pastor? Not in a LIfetime.

Ok so you have a 70 year old crackpot pastor, Dr Gene Scott, who used to grace our overnight television with hours upon hours of himself sitting in a chair smoking a stogie, and telling people in between the profanity, that they need to send him money.

Gene went the way of the dodo.  He croaked from Prostate cancer exacerbated by the herbs that his 30 year old wife, former X Rated, Vivid Video actress (if you can call her that) Barbie Bridges, was feeding him on a daily basis.  Then upon his death, she inherited the keys to his vast fortune, and his ministry, all of a sudden, she’s on Television as Pastor Melissa Scott.  More money, is the message, much much more money, and well a lot of horny late night guys are falling for it, she raked in a whopping amount of money every month to fund, well we simply don’t know, what we do know is, she was a porn actress.  She used to lay on her back for cash on film.  Now she’s some holier than thou money hungry know it all that is just as deluded as her late husband and gives any religion a really bad name.

At least with Jim Bakker we knew he was a closet gay, and his wife Tammy Faye was just a frustrated actress.  At least with Benny Hinn, we know he’s a huckster, and at least with Joel Osteen you just know deep down hes not believing anything he says..

C’mon Melissa, give it up, go shopping and watch some of your old movies.

Edit: Now I’m not saying that everyone can’t find religion and turn their lives around, just Melissa who seems to have gone from showing her body for money to brainwashing people for money, it’s all about the dollars to this one….
