ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

Somehow the racial injustice we all witnessed when the policemen in Minneapolis slowly took the breath away from a Black man named George Floyd sparked a worldwide reaction. But after several weeks the, at first, peaceful days of protest quickly turned into weeks of rioting and rampant destruction of public property.

Here is a link to my article that discusses how thee riots are actually harming the cause of the Blacks. my thought is that once a point has been made to the existing government, the next step should be negotiations for improvements, and not continual day-after-day destruction and chaos.Chaos breeds over-reaction, at some point, and not understanding and growth.

Health Supplements and Insurance Companies

DON’s WORLDThe question here is why can’t we Seniors get our Insurance companies to pay something on the many Health Supplements we end up using to save money?

Many of the Health Supplements that are sold over the counter today are actually formally produced copies of “old Home Remedies? And, these supplemental medications work very well.

Click on the link below and read my article on this problem that could save not only the patient , but also the insurance company a lot of money.

Passing on the Left! A common courtesy that too many riders ignore.

 

Lately, my wife and I have been walking a number of Nature trails and other public trails to get our exercise.

We try to get in at least 5-miles a day and the great places for us to walk are the Nature or “Natural” trails that many cities are now providing for their citizen and visitors.

These trails are usually wide enough for walkers, joggers, and bike riders to all enjoy at the same time.

But, we are finding that too many of the bike riders are not aware of the common courtesies they should follow when they are sharing the trails with others.

Yin and Yang, Health and Oriental Diagnosis

Frog_01-1Someone ( a close friend from long ago, actually) called me a sponge; an ugly one but still a sponge.

He went on to say that I kept picking up bits of information about so many different things that he never knew what I was going to say or talk about next.

And, if I am going to be honest, he was and still is right. I love to learn about new things (to me) and old things (that still work) and I consider what I learn as my own personal “Pearls of Wisdom”.

Many years ago (too many to count, honestly) I was into studying different Oriental and Asian ways of life, religions and what seemed to me to be, idiosyncrasies.

Long story short. I got into the whole Yin and Yang thing and this ancient philosophy of maintaining a healthy body and even healing an unhealthy one for a while.

That was a long time ago, and I have kept this kind of information in my mind always. But, just the other day, I read an article written by a fellow HubPage writer, on this subject, that I think should be shared.

So, click on the link below to open page to read this very good article, if you are interested.

I was Just Thinkin’ – Flying by Weight?

Pic by Don Bobbitt

I was Just Thinkin’

Really people? I just saw that one or another of the Airlines are considering a plan to charge people who fly by their personal weight.

Jeez! There were people tweeting messages on whether this should be done or not with all kinds of rediculous comments.

I, personally, was too busy laughing at this probe by an industry into the American psyche on a profit idea someone had..

Business’ release these little “rumors” in an effort to gauge whether they can find a way to make more money, not to save anyone money.

All of you Skinny people.
Do you really think that you are going to get a break on your airline ticket because you skipped a few meals, or are a practicing bolemic, or whatever it is that makes you small and/or skinny?

No, my skeletal friend. You will save nothing, I am afraid.

What I, or anyone else would do if we ran such a business, would be to keep regular (now to be called skinny tickets) at the regular price and charge the people who are over some arbitrary weight limit, an extra fee, for their “fat tickets“, just like they did with the baggage hustle they implemented not long ago.

Listen carefully!  They are in the business of making money, not giving money away!

Nuff Said!

Medicare for Illegal Immigrants

Today, the Senate approved an extension of Medicare Benefits for Disabled ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.
So, it’s becoming more clear to me why my country, that I served in the Viet Nam Era, can’t afford to pay for my Medicare!

Just who sets these priorities in our country where the citizens are a lower class than the non-citizens?
