A Thank You to all our veterans who have fought in our wars, whether voluntarily or not. Happy Veteran’s Day! Have a nice work day, though you can’t bank or get mail. Am I the only one who sees something really wrong with that?

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
Does anyone out there besides me think that complaining and whining about your job, when three hundred people are waiting to apply for it, is a really stupid idea?
Some days I think if I hear one more Mayan prophecy, I’m going to scream. Everyone does know the only “prophecy” is the calendar ending and then it starts over at the beginning? It’s a wheel. Then I realize I have a migraine and screaming is not a good idea. The world didn’t end in 2000 and it isn’t going to end in 2012. That’s the last time I am writing the date because my two doesn’t work on this computer…I lost the key to a cat claw.
What this date is, is the end of the Mayan Astrological cycle. What we do have is some anecdotal evidence from the last end of a cycle. According to some tribes in the SW, this marked a rather weird day on which metal tools levitated and did strange things like spin. This can be caused by the earth’s magnetic field shifting. When they say pole shift, they may mean magnetic poles, not the physical ones. There is geological evidence of this happening several times in the history of earth. If this happens, the effects may be catastrophic for electronics that are not shielded. Communications will definitely go down. Air craft had better be on manual control and all compasses will go buggy and that includes navigational systems. Your electronic ignition in your car may fry and die. Hopefully those of us with Fords that have cruise control will not find them bursting into flames but just in case, I will make certain red Vanwitch is parked away from flammable materials. In fact, I may just disconnect from the electrical grid if I haven’t succeeded in going solar by then. By now, I am certain all of you know that all things electrical hate me and I am not taking any chances. As for anything else, there is no point in worrying about things I have no control over. If a 300 foot tidal wave is headed this way, the cats and I can kiss our tails goodbye because nothing is stopping it. End of story.
A lot of people are very dissatisfied with the way things are going in Washington. As some know, I have had the displeasure of being involved in the underbelly of Washington when I was young. No, I don’t mean the drug pushers and prostitutes, I mean Congress. I know Our President had high ideals when he arrived and I also know he hit a brick wall. Change doesn’t come fast to Washington. Actually, frozen molasses moves faster. Washington is ruled by special interest groups that finance politicians getting back into office and for that financial support, they trade their political support. Everything is for sale. Pretty Hallmark card envelopes stuffed with cash disguised as thank you notes are delivered to wives of congressmen (used to be my job) at social events by innocent young teenage girls…well, I looked innocent. If the bribe was really big, it sometimes needed to be stuffed in the bottom of a bouquet of roses…the type of flower was the give away not to toss them in the garbage where most of your offerings wind up. That is reality. There’s a preacher on every corner decrying the current political agenda as the end of Christianity as we know it, but his real religion is publicity and his god is money but thousands fall for it and send their kid’s lunch money to him while collecting a free school lunch from the very administration they think is ruled by Satan and turning us socialist. Am I cynical? I have seen all of this with my own eyes….I am realistic. Unfortunately, our Libra president is idealistic and naïve.
The banks came to Washington and sold the idiots we elected, most of whom don’t qualify for a job a McDonald’s…Bush sure didn’t…a bill of goods. Oh please Mr and Ms Congressperson, give us until February of next year to update out computer systems so we can follow the new credit cards laws otherwise, our computers won’t be able to follow the new rules and will crash and the whole financial system will go down the tubes. Funny, it took them less than 48 hours to print letters and program their computers with new higher interest rates, penalties and fees but it seems subtraction and lowering interest rates is a function computers can’t do. Why did our congress people believe them? Because most of them don’t qualify to work at McDonalds
So, let me give you a fair warning. Whatever you do, do not take one of the plentitude of credit card offerings arriving in your mail box. Throw them in the garbage. Do not open them. George just loves to read them and find the hook. Somewhere in that lovely bunch of legalese that requires a magnifying glass to read there is a statement that exempts them from the new laws if you agree by taking their card. It is cleverly phrased but it is there. One late payment and your interest rate hits around 30% on most of them. You will get a late payment even if you pay electronically. I got into a fight with Skank of America (credit to Jay Leno) when they tried to tell me my electronically delivered payment to MBNA was late and that it suddenly, after I had scheduled and programmed the payment on their computer system, took 5 days to deliver it. I sent them a letter because I have learned you never communicate via phone..they will deny everything they told you as I learned with American Express when I got hit with a late payment after the officer in charge and even a second person swore up and down it wouldn’t happen, don’t send another payment, we’ll straighten it out right now and you have 19 days grace anyway…LIES every one! And then they denied it to the letter that anyone ever said anything like that. In my letter I informed them (Skank) I knew they were the same company and if it took them 5 days to transfer money to themselves, they really needed a new computer programmer and I was available. Hey, I can only program a limited amount in DOS but I had to be better than what they claimed they had. They returned half..HALF..my late fee and once again, I sank my fangs in their leg. This time they apologized and returned the rest and admitted the payment was never late. I should point out I also gave them my lawyer’s name and phone number and threatened to sue them. They know some judges down here will find in your favor without hearing the case and yes, they can do that.
Napoleon is a lot like Congress, he hates change. Change anything and you have one upset puddy cat. The first night of the mattress topper and Napoleon refused to sleep on the bed. Now his family, Purdy von Sweets, Purrbie and Josephina were all on the bed in his place. Purdy is a strange hyper cat. If she were human, she would be a skinny little, coffee drinking, chain smoking woman with multiple tics. As it is, she just drives you nuts butting you, kneading you, purring and carrying on a constant commentary of the acts and I have yet to figure out what she wants. Purrbie is finding it hard to be two cats in one as my old Boopie inhabits his body. He must, MUST, lick each finger. This is not your dog lapping licking. This is carefully licking every millimeter of skin with special attention to the underside of your nails and then biting the finger, all ten fingers, and then repeat for good measure, licking. Josephina on the other hand has the curious ability to stretch out and then ooze over the entire bed like a huge, heavy glob of gelatinous fur. I think you can see why I prefer Napoleon who simple sleeps quietly at my side, putting up with me sliding him down and getting in and out of bed several times a night. He returned last night, though I first got the dirty look. YOU CHANGED MY BED! By next week he will be used to it or maybe by next month…..
