every two weeks i visited my mother’s only cousin in her late 80’s. my mother made me promise to take good care of her. the time had come for me to keep that promise. every week i’d drive 90 minutes there and 90 minutes back. we’d have lunch with her and her friends. i was the youngest once again in some of the company i kept. after lunch, i sorted her mail, took care of her bills, vacuumed, sometimes i’d take her for a drive, we talked and i’d leave. it felt great because it made her feel good.

  • her mail was 99% cons, scams, wordplay, and sweepstakes trying to get at her money. her mail arrived for the most part in official looking envelopes. she was always the lucky winner of at least $20 million. the bigger the envelope, the bigger the lie. and all because she had always been a generous giver and her info has been bought and sold a million times.

An Eye for an Eye – Chronicles of an Obsession – A.Venger (pseudonym)

This true, super-paced short story takes place some forty years after World War II and the Holocaust, when the author (A. Venger, an alias) comes eye to eye with the person responsible for his parents’ death in concentration camp Sobibor. In this autobiographical drama a score is settled.  Is justice meted out privately, preferable over no justice at all? You be the judge.

In the early 2000’s, a memoir with the title An Eye for an Eye was found in a safe in Tel Aviv, Israel. The safe belonged to A.Venger, a pseudonym. Not long before his death A. Venger told one of his sons that he wrote the memoir. In it, he confessed to having committed a murder. He assured his son that everything in the book was true. The story goes back to some thirty years after World War II, when Avenger was living in Israel and returned to his native Germany on business. There he serendipitously crossed paths with the policeman responsible for deporting his parents to their death. The writer’s troubled past turned into an obsession that lead him on a path of revenge. He took justice into his own hands by meticulously planning the police man’s murder. This story is an admission to committing the perfect murder. Today, three generations later, the impact and aftermath of World War II are still very much alive. A. Venger’s family members are divided over the truth of his memoir.This super-paced short story takes place after World War II and the Holocaust, when the author comes eye to eye with the man responsible for his parents’ death. In this autobiographical drama a score is settled. What’s better, revenge or no justice at all? You be the judge!Holocaust/WWII memoirs by

We multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed

Agent Smith in the Matrix: …I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.

Happy New Year?

Paper bags are against everything green. Fireworks too and so are people needing rescuing from the Antartic. Any idea how much pollution people leave behind. Parts of the Antarctic already look like a junkyard. We have no business being there. Who’s paying for all this.

So it’s Easter again

It’s Easter,
Today so many years ago, three Jewish men were crucified. One was a rebelrouser and the two others were thieves.

All three were Jewish. How did we go from there to the Holocaust and to 9/11?

Without war we would know no peace.

China cracks down

China cracks down on children who neglect their elderly parents. The national legislature in China is now requiring for adult children to  visit their parents. Elderly parents who feel ignored can now sue their kids. The law is partly a reflection of a cultural change in parts of the developing country. The traditional extended family in China is fading, according to the Associated Press. Historically in many Asian cultures, aging parents and grandparents live with a child or other family member. Sending a parent to a nursing home was just not acceptable — nor was it affordable for many families.

But that’s changing, particularly as China’s elderly population rapidly expands. Lately, the Chinese government has seen a growing number of reports of elder abuse. State media carried the story of one son in the well-to-do province of Jiangsu who reportedly forced his elderly mother to live in a pig pen for two years, according to the AP.
Elder-abuse cases in Hong Kong have risen 15% in the last two years, the South China Morning Post reported earlier this year. “Because of Chinese culture, elderly people are reluctant to reveal the disgraceful affairs of their families,” the director of one advocacy group, Against Elderly Abuse, told the newspaper. The new law doesn’t say how often children must visit their parents — and there may not be enough grounds here for any resulting lawsuit. But China now has nearly 167 million people over age 60, the BBC reports. While the law is partially intended to sustain the family unity that may be starting to fray in China, it’s also an attempt to ensure that the oldest and weakest members of society are cared for.

China orders children to visit their elderly parents

China has passed a law requiring adult children to visit their elderly parents regularly or risk being sued. The law does not specify how frequently such visits should occur, but warns that neglect could risk court action. Reports suggest a growing number of elderly Chinese have been abandoned or neglected by their offspring. Chinese state media reported earlier this month that a woman in her nineties had been forced by her son to live in a pigsty for two years. Newspapers are full of such stories, or of tales of children trying to seize their parents’ assets, or of old people dying unnoticed in their homes. The rapid pace of development in China has damaged the traditional extended family in China. An eighth of the population of China is over the age of 60, and more than half of them live alone.

Their children often leave home to work in the major industrial centers. The dislocation of families has been exacerbated by China’s one-child policy and a dramatic advance in life expectancy. China has nearly 167 million people aged over 60, and one million above 80. There are fewer working offspring to support more elderly relatives. There are few affordable alternatives, such as retirement or care homes, for the elderly or others unable to live on their own.

A Christian Senator full of love like Christ would have wanted him to be?

A senator in the United States senate remarked that women who are raped shouldn’t worry about needing an abortion, because the body has a way of shutting down? A senator in the United States senate! 2012? Is this what he tells himself when she says NO? Do you want a guy like that representing you?

Realize that he represents a whole lot of people, men and women, thinking just like him. He’s a SENATOR! He apologized for using the wrong words? Really? It’s not his words that worry me. It’s his thoughts and feelings that do. Loving father, good husband, squeaky clean I’m sure. The United States is treading  a slippery slope with people like the honorable senator at the helm.

Well, it’s 2021 now and we know how that story went…

Hey Senator! No abortion? No Viagra!

Hateful clowns

By Patrick McGreevy, Los Angeles TimesAugust 7, 2012, 4:09 a.m.

SACRAMENTO — The campaign committee for Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage in California, faces $49,000 in fines for failing to properly report and handle political contributions it received.

The fines are proposed by the enforcement staff of the state Fair Political Practices Commission against the campaign committee—Yes on 8. The staff found that the group had failed to properly file public reports disclosing late contributions and contributions of more than $5,000, as well as for not properly disclosing an anonymous $10,000 contribution.

In all, the campaign committee faces 18 counts of violating state political laws. The group has agreed to the violations and the fines, but the commission will still consider its staff’s recommendation at an Aug. 16 meeting.

Proposition 8, which limited marriage to a man and a woman, was approved by voters but struck down by a federal appeals court. Andy Pugno, an attorney who has represented the campaign committee, was not immediately available for comment.

Data sharing

By David Lazarus August 7, 2012

It’s bad enough that businesses make us opt out from having our personal information shared with others. But even more insulting, they often make the opt-out process as inconvenient as possible in hopes that we’ll just give up and let them do as they please.

That can mean hiding opt-out links in out-of-the-way places on websites. Or it can mean just confusing you about where you stand, privacy-wise.

Zuzu Spadaccini was left wondering after he received a recent letter from Chase Bank — an experience that millions of Californians possibly share every year in their dealings with financial institutions.

First came a bulk-mail letter to Spadaccini’s Fairfax District home. It didn’t look like anything out of the ordinary. “It basically looked like junk mail,” Spadaccini, 59, told me.

It wasn’t. Opening the envelope, he discovered it was a notice informing him of “important privacy choices.”

“If we do not hear from you,” it warned, “we may share some of your information with affiliated companies and other companies with whom we have contracts to provide products and services.”

Wait a minute, Spadaccini thought. Didn’t I already opt out from data sharing years ago?

“It seemed like they were telling me I had to do it all over again,” he said.

The California Financial Information Privacy Act requires banks to send out notices every year informing customers about their privacy choices. It also specifies that if a consumer opts out from having his or her data shared, “that direction is in effect until otherwise stated by the consumer.”

Seems clear enough. Opt out once and you’re opted out forever.

Or are you?

“Unless you say ‘No,’ we may share personal and financial information about you with our affiliated companies,” Chase’s notice said. “Unless you say ‘No,’ we may share personal and financial information about you with outside companies we contract with to provide financial products and services.”

Erik Syverson, a Los Angeles privacy lawyer, said the notice could easily confuse people about the status of their privacy preferences.

“If you’ve already opted out, you may be wondering if you have to do it again,” he said.

Logging in to his Chase account online, Spadaccini found a blank slate. He was instructed to check a series of boxes if he wanted to opt out from having his information shared. “It was like my earlier preferences hadn’t even been recorded,” he said.

That got me thinking, so I checked the websites of the various financial institutions I do business with. Not one had a prominent link to setting my privacy preferences.

More important, not one allowed me to confirm my existing preferences. Like Spadaccini, I too encountered a blank slate each time, with each company inviting me to register my preferences from scratch, even though I’d already opted out with all of them.

This is obviously nuts.

Last week, I wrote about a new privacy-enforcement division being set up by California Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris. Its job is to crack down on security leaks and computer breaches that endanger people’s privacy.

But things are so messed up, businesses are required by law to scare you annually with notices that your information could be shared unless you act, yet they provide no way to check the status of any previously registered privacy preferences.

“There’s probably a reason for this,” said Christopher Blanchard, a Burbank privacy lawyer. “It wouldn’t be in the best interest of the financial institution to allow you to easily change your mind.”

Gary Kishner, a Chase spokesman, acknowledged that the company’s website doesn’t allow customers to confirm their existing privacy preferences. All you can do is start from the beginning and set them again if you’re unsure.

But Kishner said that “those settings are set until the customer chooses to change them.”

So why send out potentially misleading notices that make it look as if you’re no longer opted out?

Chase does it, Kishner replied, because the state of California requires that notices be sent every year. Apparently, it would be too complicated (read: costly) for the bank to personalize notices to reflect each customer’s privacy settings.

At my request, the state attorney general’s office reviewed the California Financial Information Privacy Act and concluded that there’s no provision requiring banks to inform customers of their established preferences. It’s apparently an aspect of things that lawmakers overlooked when drafting the legislation.

This is a loophole that needs filling. Otherwise consumers will be needlessly confused every time they receive an obligatory annual notice informing them that their personal info could be shared. Their only recourse, as a spokeswoman for the attorney general put it, is to “opt out again every year.”

That’s not what the law requires, and it’s not how consumers should be treated. Someone in Sacramento should step up and fix this.

Enjoying your genetically modified corn?

Enjoy your modified corn

Kevlar finds a new use: Protecting tractors from cornstalks…Farmers ride a tractor through their cornfield on July 20, 2012 near Whiteland, Ind. Stalks of genetically modified corn are tough, so tough that they’re puncturing tractor tires. Farmers are fighting back.

Genetically modified crops are engineered to be tough. It helps them fight off pests, withstand drought.  And it’s a beefed-up-mess, you can see. Their stalks are stiffer and tougher. So when you cut them off to harvest them, it’s like having a field of little spears. Little spears that are stabbing, and bumping and chewing up tractor tires — poor tires.

The Good News Blog – Breaking Hip while killing elephants…

Honorary president of WWF goes ELEPHANT hunting.

His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain: Hunting Innocent Animals for “Fun” and Breaks His Hip While Doing So.
Posted on April 14, 2012


On Friday, April 13, 2012, His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain was on a “private hunting trip” in Botswana, Africa where he, along with his not exactly animal loving friends, where happily shooting and killing innocent elephants for “fun”.

Apparently, during his fun-filled day of watching innocent elephants suffer after being shot then slowly dying His Majesty had an “accidental fall” thus fracturing his “… right hip in three places.”

Well, I suppose you are expecting me to feel bad for the old king, right?  Frankly, I don’t… that is what he gets for killing such beautiful creatures for “fun”.

Any way, King Juan Carlos I “…underwent surgery on Saturday morning at the San José Hospital in Madrid…” according to the BBC news.

The accident prone king has undergone four operations within the past two years according to AFP news.  In June 2011, His Majesty was:

… given an artificial right knee-joint. In September 2011 he had a torn Achilles tendon repaired. In November 2011 the king wore sunglasses at an official ceremony to hide a black eye that a palace spokesman said he sustained when he was ‘hit by a doorknob.’  May 2010, he had a benign tumour removed from a lung.
