Let’s Throw Some Gasoline on the Fire, Shall We?

“No one reached out to me and said, ‘as a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren?’” Patrick said. “And if that’s the exchange, I’m all in.”

Trump needs to address this ass (Texas Lt. Gov.) for creating more panic. Did this really need to be said? 69 years old is young by today’s modern medical standards and note, those are the ones most invested in the market.

Cash Out

I did it on instinct on Monday a.m. because the market had been insanely irrational the last three trading days. I saved my entire portfolio and my retirement account but after getting over the immense relief, I’m angry as hell at all the American POTUSs from the Bushes to Obama who ignored China and the enormous damage they are capable of inflicting on the global economy.

The market ended today (DJIA and NASDAQ) down 4.5 per cent. Pls take note and hope you have protected yourself.

Democrat Primary Debate 2/19/20

I don’t have much to say because I despise them all but Bloomberg did get in a good line. After listening to Warren and Sanders scream about income inequality and to quote Sanders “Nobody should be allowed to earn a billion dollars,” Bloomberg responded “This conversation alone is going to get Trump re-elected.”

Actually, the audience laughed and so did I.

You Go Girl

Kylie Cosmetics is an American cosmetics company founded and owned by Kylie Jenner. Formerly known as Kylie Lip Kits, the company was renamed Kylie Cosmetics in 2016 after the release of the liquid lipstick and lip liner set on November 30, 2015. In 2018, Forbes reported the company was valued at $800 million in a highly competitive industry.

This is one of my favorite American success stories; I know we all love to hate the Kardashians/Jenners, but this young lady had the intelligence to tap into the American Girl market and had the greatest Momager to help her along the way. She currently has 500 people working for her in So California alone producing lipstick.... [Read More]

Advice Needed

Well, it’s taken a mere six months but I already have a problem in my private preserve. Two miles south of our lanai, there is an outside NRA range that Governor Rick Scott allowed to build with absolutely no sound barriers or protective walls.

Today, I had a housewarming party on my lanai and the range was so noisy, my guests left because they “didn’t feel like drinking cocktails in the middle of Baghdad.” As many of you know, gunshot noise has an incredibly wide range; particularly AKs.... [Read More]

Made in the USA by Americans

One of the most glaring changes from moving from SoFL to NoFL (South Georgia) is the lovely surprise of the socio-demographics of the residents. This is not only about my neighbors who are both quiet and inclined to live among natural wildlife and mind their own business, the community also refuses to install sidewalks, street lamps, allow motorcycles or even golf carts. In other words, the key word is serenity.

As with every new home, nothing ever gets done specifically right so today we had to replace our front door entry hard wear because the head designer (“Mr. Dennis” – my husband) did not get what he wanted. Complaints? No. Profuse apologies? Yes.... [Read More]

Thoughts on Gun Control

Was watching Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson last night and was impressed with some of the ideas they expressed.

  1. 100 kids were shot in the south side of Chicago last weekend alone which falls within a ten block radius. Gang banger crime constitutes 70% of all gun shootings/murders in this country. They buy on the black market from drug cartels and due to the suspension of “stop and frisk” (a wildly  successful strategy in NYC in the 90s under the reign of the G-man), it has become far easier to buy and own an illegal weapon. Any hand-wringing on these types of purchases?
  2. Let’s own up to this: There is a mental illness issue going on in this country and many people pass through background checks because and -I DID NOT KNOW THIS- MDs are prevented from (due to doctor/patient privilege)  releasing mental records to the public. I believe in personal privacy but there are many instances when you deserve to lose those rights- applications for FBI/CIA/ NYPD/FDNY and the purchase of an AK-47 and AR-15 which are deadly military weapons.

What Tucker and Sean were trying to express is that we have good rules on the books but they are not being executed properly. Gun ownership is certainly an American right but without proper oversight, it will be taken away- mark my words.... [Read More]

Hurricane Dorian

Between weather.com and the local weather channel, this is what drives me insane:

  1. Recommendations on filling gas tanks, stocking up on canned goods and bottled water, taking patio furniture inside, filling up bath tubs ahead of time, re-filling propane tanks for generators. Um… Duh.
  2. Mandatory evacuations. Exactly where? The entire state of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas are apparently within “the cone.”
  3. Chats with locals who are boarding up their properties. Again, who cares?
  4. Not all that interested in the damage incurred in the Bahamas. My bad. All I care about is my state and country.

What I don’t see enough of are the spaghetti models of the hurricane’s path. Just give me the story and stop telling tired Floridians how to prepare for the 4th hurricane in 15 years. We know already; just give us the facts ma’am.
