RANT ...

p.s.  If either one of these videos doesn't play, go to Youtube.  It is worth watching!

WELLS FARGO … these bastards did this to me!  They opened a checking account without my knowledge or permission!  I signed NOTHING and all of a sudden I began receiving monthly statements with a $10 service charge!  EVERY MONTH for a checking account I never opened.  I was able to get them to cancel it and refund me the service charges after about five or six months of writing letters and finally had to drop the name of the big fancy law firm I worked for and threaten litigation in order for them to take care of it.  

This asshole right here

NOW, John Stumpf, the CEO of Wells Fargo has been tarred and feathered by Elizabeth Warren for firing hundreds of lower level staff for opening these accounts when you all know goddam well it was the Big Shots who were telling the drones to do exactly that. Welcome to Corporate America.  This is how it works. Big shots screw their customers and when they get caught they fire their low level employees for doing exactly what they MADE their low life staff do FOR THEM in the first place, whether ethical or not.  ASSHOLES.  I swear I hate people.  MAN IF I WERE GOD THERE'D BE A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THEIR WAY TO HELL RIGHT NOW.  BUT I take comfort in this thought ... Wells Fargo is going to be on the receiving end of ONE GIGANTIC CLASS ACTION WRONGFUL TERMINATION LAW SUIT and I hope all those poor people who were fired receive seven figure settlements.  YES.  SEVEN FIGURES. 

NEXT ...

THE KAEPERNICK CONTROVERSY – Well, I basically started World War III on Facebook by posting video of the Oklahoma man getting shot by the police lady with the comment:  THIS is what Kaepernick is protesting" and all Hell broke loose. 

All my friends (who don't necessarily all know each other) started fighting!  I felt TERRIBLE.  But I have to say that in reading everyone's comments what became very clear was that NO ONE was really listening (or attempting to understand anyone's point of view)  which is pretty typical.  Everyone wants to be right.  That is human.  I get it.  But when you want to be right, you also do not take in the information in a thoughtful way.  You know ... really THINKING about the opposing viewpoint.  Like I really do wonder how ANYONE can vote for Donald Trump.  Know what I mean?  And I have friends who I LOVE and who are exceptional people who are voting for him and I am just dumbfounded and very curious as to how they came to the conclusion that he is a good presidential candidate.  And I'm fairly certain they think I'm crazy for voting for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders or Jill Stein, or whoever.  But I really believe (so corny I know) but I do believe that if people really TRIED to understand each other we would "GET" each other better.  

I can tell you one thing ... I sure miss Walter Cronkite.  No bias, JUST THE NEWS.  And he was the most trusted man in America.  Can you say that about any of today's newscasters? 

If you watch CNN, MSNBC, FOX, they are all slanted, it's true.  If Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trumps mouthpiece, is on MSNBC and Don Lemon is questioning her about some of Trump's incendiary comments or his lack of a plan she will immediately turn it around and start accusing Hillary of all her wrongs, and vice-versa.  You cannot get a straight answer to ANYTHING. 

SO, back to Kaepernick.  My feeling is this: 

Until you have lived in the skin of a black person you cannot EVER understand the reality of living with racial profiling, being afraid your son might be shot by the police, getting followed around a department store because some sales person thinks you’re going to rip them off.  If the flag represents America and America stands for LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL then it should be Liberty and Justice FOR ALL.

But, when you live in a dumbed-down society where people don't read, you will have groups like "the Deplorables" who are CERTAIN that Obama is going to take your guns away and that Trump really is going to make America great again based on what someone said on FOX.  *sigh*

NEXT ...

DONALD FUCKING TRUMP … Debate Monday.  CAN'T WAIT.  I think it is going to EPIC and go down in one of two ways.  (1) Hillary will hand Donald a new asshole; or (2) it will be a slugfest of personal insults and no substantive debate. 

If it in fact, turns into a slugfest, I can guarantee you it WILL be Donald's fault.  he will take the debate off the rails and then there is nowhere else to go but down.  For Hillary, it will be akin to trying to have a substantive conversation with a gnat. 


Thank you.


  1. Wells Fargo can go fuck themselves, and I hope this costs them billions BILLIONS!!!!

    I stand with Kaepernick, or kneel, to be precise. When every other day we hear of a black man being shot by police and yet there aren't stories of white men being shot--most often they are "taken" into custody--we have a problem.
    Think about the NYC/NJ bomber who shot two policemen, set and detonated bombs, and he was captured, injured but alive. But a black man with his hands up is shot to death.

    I hope Hillary mops the floor with that dead raccoon on The Rump's head.

  2. Deb, I could not agree with you more. I cannot believe how your banking system works. OMG. We in Canada only have 6 banks, and they are not privatized. OMG is all that I can say. I'm glad that you were persistent. As for Trump, I cannot add a thing. I don't understand how he has gotten this far, without being stoned to death. It's his supporters as much as him--who worry me. A nation of incredibly disenfranchised, misguided, ill-informed people, who think that what--he'll "make America great again?" He is a malignant narcissist who doesn't have a plan, and probably can't believe he's gotten this far--and is laughing at all of us.

  3. I couldn't agree with you more. I am enjoying your rants.
