Here is an excerpt I found from a recently read article

"Americans are conditioned to be paranoid of others and live in fear. They have an aversion to other people and need extreme amounts of privacy. Thus they are inclined to being socially isolated and segregated from others, which is not natural or normal as humans are not meant to be solitary creatures. There is an ice wall between strangers in America (hence the term "breaking the ice"), and even neighbors do not know each other (which wasn't the case prior to the 1980's). Many social studies show that Americans have less friends today than they did decades ago (See the book "Bowling Alone" by Robert Putnam). But not all social cultures are like this fortunately. If you travel to more foreign countries you will see what I mean. Most likely this unnatural paranoia in the US is engineered by the elite to keep people divided so they don't unite against the ruling elite. It's the old divide and conquer strategy."

My goodness, the first presidential debate was tough to watch. Answers were typical generalizations with no clear specifics as is the norm. I did not feel there was any clear winner this evening. Just a restatement of current platforms by both candidates.

This should irritate people just a bit;

"Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would levy a 65% tax on the largest estates and make it harder for wealthy people to pass appreciated assets to their heirs without paying taxes, expanding the list of tax increases she would impose on the top sliver of America’s affluent."

Intrigued Intellect, Investor, Freelance Artist
Introduction
For the past 21 years, I have enjoyed the rare opportunity, of transcending from Mechanical Engineering to Computer Science. To look back both have required a high degree of discipline, of logic, of mathematical understanding, and pattern recognition. I smile because it has been an exciting and wonderful adventure. An adventure that has required a constant learning curve and has proven to be a consistent challenge. Something I thoroughly enjoy in my life. To have transcended from Computer Aided Drafting, to Legacy Systems, to Open Source Technologies, and bleeding edge technologies, one might wonder how I have not gone a little crazy. To that I can only say, the greater the complexity, the greater the smile is on my face. I truly agree in the old adage, that knowledge is power. The more we acquire, the greater our opportunity and resourcefulness to not only ourselves but others.

I find myself highly excited about the next 21 years. What will it bring I wonder. Will it be as adventurous as the previous 21 years. I hope so

Bathroom was not clean. Mold on the shower current. Long Black hair everywhere. Same with the bed. I could tell that the sheets had not been changed and there was long black hair throughout the sheets and in the pillow cases. Will not be staying there again.

Sadly I can find better Microwave dinners; however their Soup and Salad Combo is still a great meal there.

I enjoy Starbucks and occasionally treat myself either on the weekend or in the evening with a good book. Unfortunately I have not had much success with this particular store. There is an older woman that works the register who consistently short changes me. Today was the seventh time she has done this, over the course of two years. Now some might think oh, well 7 times out of two years; however I will divulge I probably have been in there a total of 7 times in those two years. I dont frequent the store as often as others. Needless to say, the third time it happened I brought it to her attention and she looked at my like I was clueless and initially stated that she did not; however I was rather insistent and showed her not only the change but the ticket as well. She reluctantly gave me the remaining change. The irritating thing is she has been doing this now for at least two years. I am certain I am not the only one who is experiencing this and it makes me wonder who else she has taken advantage of. This store needs to either speak to this woman or let her go. Stealing from customers is probably the poorest level of customer service possible. She is not doing the store any favors. Today is the last day I will visit. I wont be shortchanged again.

I find it unfortunate that I am having to write a poor review for Bethany Geyman. For the past 10 months the Bethany Geyman office could not find a way to work with my insurance company to process a claim. The fault lies both at the Insurance Company and at Bethany Geymans Office. The level of incompetence on both sides forced me to get involved and resolve the matter. When I finally knew what was going one I reacted immediately. Unfortunately it was not quick enough. I just received notice that the Bethany Geyman Office has returned the insurance check because they have already turned me into collections. All I have to say is, Ridiculous ladies and gentlemen. I will not be going back .
