My Experience With A Group Home in Arizona

No one would check into a group home just to write an article but since I was there and saw it all, why not?
I don't know anyone who says the words "group home" without shuddering a little bit inside. None of them are how a person should want to live. Most clients are people who have NOWHERE else to go and no one to help them, some because heartless family members don't realize the severity of the loneliness and neglect experienced in there by human beings struggling to feel control over their lives after an illness or accident. There is one in Phoenix where the owners bought it from some well meaning people and stripped anything good from it and replaced it with furniture that is painful and incompetent/unskilled help. I was unfortunately tricked into going to one of those instead of being able to go home by a "case manager" at Life Center of Paradise Valley physical rehabilitation center. A man who used to be the owner of the place now refers clients there. The staff is great at providing tiny meals and getting people in bed on time. Only one person who works there as a "care giver" speaks English and the other ONE care giver is there as a friend of the owner. Neither has a car and can drive to go get food, supplies, and incidentals like smoke alarm batteries. The beds have no mattresses, only box springs. Making old, broken, crippled bodies lie on the coil springs reinjures these clients every night. This is designed to make their recovery time last longer and therefore bring the owners more money in insurance and self pay. But it isn't good for the clients. The owners (the owner and his wife) are idiots who have no idea how to run a group home. They bought it as a business investment and so run it on a shoestring budget without any thought towards the comfort of clients. 
The owner walked into my room while I was naked and trying to get dressed and wouldn't leave while babbling and asking my about my "paperwork" as if I worked there and handled that. One of the care givers asked me later why I didn't call the police. 
The owner and his wife walked into the living room of the house one day, turned on what I can only think of as 'the African version of MTV',(so loud that two of the clients were practically crying while holding their hands over their ears) and started doing a somewhat sexually provocative dance, in the middle of the room, with no regard for the clients. This isn't good business practice or patient care. 
I was one of eight people there. My room was next to the washer and drier which sometimes were run at day or night, and had a smoke alarm with a burned out battery, chirping 24/7 and they expected me to sleep like that. 
I have tried to call there to get some of my property back and still haven't managed to get anyone to answer the phone. You tell me, does anyone deserve to have to live like that, especiall seniors, and at least one of them a veteran who should be at the V.A.?
They call themselves Sunnyside Assisted Living Home LLC,at 2615 E. Vista Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85032. 
Assisted living implies that nurses, competent care givers, and other staff are there to provide Long Term Care facility management instead of this bunch of crap. If you call the main number for contact at 480 264 6870, you get the previous owner, ROMAN (pronounced RO-MAUN) , and he is obviously still in place to give the place an semblance of respect that they don't deserve.
I was told (by Anne Marie at the "Living Center of Paradise Valley")that this place had physical therapy and should have known when I asked, that when I asked about that and Roman kept repeating the same mantra, "Sir, this is $800 a month and you won't find anything cheaper." and he wouldn't answer my question that I should have gone directly to home from the rehabilitation center. Anne Marie kept insisting that I needed something in the way of this group home, since my condo had stairs. This was stupid, as I climbed the stair with supervision 2 weeks later with minimal supervision. 
When I asked Roman how to contact the house directly he gave me the number (602)626-8257. and when I called there, I got an error recorded message that said, "The customer you are trying to call is not in service at this time."
I would like to add that Life Care Center of Paradise Valley and John C. Lincoln Hospital gave me the best of care considering my injury.

FACEBOOK CLICKBAIT ADS!

Clickbait advertising.
It isn't advertising, it is a jack on your serenity, and an OBSTRUCTION in your web experience. Pop up advertising on layers that open AFTER you have started reading the content of a page that you clicked on the link to read to begin with, are annoying;
A) because they distract you from the article that may or may not actually be there (the pages that had a link to a story that doesn't really exist are bait and switch type advertising and those kind of advertisers should be drawn and quartered) and really piss you off because B) the link that promised an intriguing story about a popular topic is NOT EVEN THERE, but after you read the first two words, a whole LAYER or advertising graphic pops up right in your line of sight and makes you mad. THEN, on top of that insult, as aggravating as someone who hits you over the head with a picket sign, and then says, "Made you look! Ha ha!" they have an insult at the bottom of the ad graphic that gives you two choices.
One says, "Yes, show me these wonderful offers" and the other says, "NO I want to be stupid and pass up all this amazing stuff."
Notice: That means if you don't browse their advertising that they consider you FUCKING STUPID!
YEAH! THAT'S THE GUY I WANT TO HONOR BY GIVING HIM MONEY OUT OF MY POCKET FOR SOME CLICKBAIT SHIT NO ONE REALLY NEEDS AND THAT I ESPECIALLY DON'T WANT.
And then the thing that will really piss you off is that if you click on the wrong part of that layer, and sometimes ANY PART OF THAT LAYER, it takes you to the advertising page for the layer graphic that your intentionally tried to TURN THE FUCK OFF!
Do advertising people think, that because in the fifties someone in advertising decided (never proven theory for many items except for a few) that ANNOYING JINGLES (not popup advertising that was made illegal and software made to prevent it) made you remember the name of a product (ON TV ADS, not the internet), that being annoying is a great way to sell things?
I guess so, and if you buy shit based on clickbait, then, I guess you are as gullible as the advertising people think you are.
Have a nice day.

The Difference Between Flawed and Wrong



This morning I am not in a good mood. This inspires me to write and I am trying for this not be just a rant but an informed decision on my part not to listen to bullshit. First, someone I considered a friend lied to me and tried to make up some scenario that was something that I knew was complete bullshit because they over reacted to something that happened earlier. So, then they tried to throw the MY RELIGION into it, as if Buddhists are supposed to be door mats for the rest of the world to walk on. Guess what - NOT.
Then, as I realized that I had misjudged someone on their intentions and relationship to me, I backed away from a relationship with someone that I thought was a friend for over a year. Weird because they seemed so normal previously. I refuse to allow myself to be dragged down mentally and emotionally by people who seem unstable.
THEN, someone who actually IS a dear friend of mine, had a meme posted that said we can't judge Hillary Clinton because like all of us she is 'flawed', as if we are talking about a work of art.
Let me explain the difference. A flaw is something that happens FROM OUTSIDE OF AN OBJECT to make them a certain way and is irreversible, as in a flaw on a gemstone. It is incapable of being repaired. 
Flawed? We are talking about a human being, not a gem stone. Please let me explain the difference in definition.
flaw: noun - a defect impairing legal soundness or validity.
You are picturing flawed as less than perfect but being WRONG means: not correct in action, judgment, opinion, method, etc., as a person; in error: 
When, as a person, you CHOOSE wrong policies over the public good and choose mentors who are war mongers and hedge fund managers who helped wreck us in the past. you aren't imperfect, you are WRONG and if you continue to choose to be wrong, you are willfully ignorant about the right things to do.
When a gemstone is flawed it can't be corrected but when a PERSON continues to CHOOSE TO be WRONG  "...not correct in action, judgment, opinion, method, etc., as a person; in error:", then they have the ability and the right to CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY and correct and change that "...action, judgement, opinion, method, etc.", and when someone doesn't choose to correct bad policy decisions made by her husband and instead CHOOSES to defend them, then they aren't flawed, THEY ARE WRONG. 
An opinion or decision, being objects, can be flawed but when a person chooses one of those things as a way to dictate the future and the future of their decisions, then, they are WRONG.

Feeding the Trolls

Normally, I am one of the people who says, "Don't Feed The Trolls", which means, don't bother to argue with people who only come online to piss you off. This is a different situation because this is a political troll.  If not corrected, some people might be influenced by their lies.
They are part of the 'legion' of trolls that work for David Brock and other political operatives that come on social media, open a fake profile to hide behind, and then post things to, as the term 'Political Troll' states, "...Their purpose is to distract from the real important issues that they are supposed to be dealing with and distracting voters and the news media away from primary scandals and real issues that are going on. Their stories are intended to anger or cause fear to sway voters, if nothing more than for short term public opinion and votes."
I will give you some of his Wiki profile:
"...David Brock (born November 2, 1962) is an American political operative, author, and commentator who founded the liberal blog Media Matters for America.[1] He has been described by Time magazine as “one of the most influential operatives in the Democratic Party.”
Later it says, "...The Nation has described Brock as a “conservative journalistic assassin turned progressive empire-builder”;[6] National Review has called him a “right-wing assassin turned left-wing assassin”;[7] and Politico has profiled him as a “former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader.”
So, here goes:
This is the post that I read about in a meme form on Facebook, when I looked up Amy Ninetto at https://www.facebook.com/people/Amy-Ninetto/100004910105000 ,  what I found was an empty page, no pictures, no details, no comments including this one. as I can see readily it is one of David Brock's fake profiles he started to be able to troll our pages and make excuses for his right wing queen, Hillary Clinton.


To the Clintonistas who think they can a) switch candidates on us, as if we don't have a choice or enough brains to know that doesn't mean we're getting a good deal, b) force us out of an election process, c) purposely influence the media and trolls like this to ignore the issues and tell us to vote for them anyway because they threaten us with Donald J. Trump - I have some things to say.
1) WE are the people who vote by issues and your stance on issues will have to change if you expect us to vote for you, PERIOD.
2) This isn't about us not voting for you because of revenge for spitting in our faces and cheating us out of a fair election.
3) You may have scared the uniformed wusses in our party to vote for you despite your candidate being a war mongering liar who is an opportunist and an undercover Republican. Let me list for you a few things others have said about your meme, that sum up how I feel.

"...I was a little upset until I noticed this message was for "dems." The problem here is that most of us Bernie supporters weren't Democrats to start with and won't be switching over now. The DNC has screwed it's chances of picking up the independent voters who switched over for Bernie. #demexit is about to begin."   (I will mention here, as this commenter stated, the word "Dems" is a Republican slang term like "Libs or Libturds" which is what gave this troll away to begin with. The fake meme poster outed themselves as a troll right there.)

And another comment stated, "...rigged primaries, skewed debates, suppressed voters, turned a blind eye to fraud, and rewards dws (Debbie Wasserman Schultz who resigned because of corruption evidence and the impending scandal.) with a job well done. Sure, I'll throw my hands up and vote for her....NO. If this is what she's capable of without presidential power, what will happen with it?"

I will explain about your empty threat scare tactics, supposedly Trump and his agenda.
A)What good does it do to vote for a person who is more capable and ready of keeping us in a never ending war for profit, who we know is connected to the Military Industrial Complex through the most evil people in the world, the Carlyle Group and the Saudi and Israeli war machines?
B) What guarantees do you have that Clinton will follow through on the foreign relations with Mexico when she didn't bother to do anything about immigration reform in the entire almost eight years she has been Secretary of State and in charge of foreign relations?
C) How did Trump make you think he can change the nation and the Supreme Court on abortion or anything else that he rouses stupid people by talking about, when, NO ONE HAS in over fifty years? Hillary Clinton doesn't guarantee any better when she is cozied up to all the worst right wing monsters in American and foreign societies through her "foundation".
D) What does it matter that Trump might endorse more Scalia type right wing to the Supreme Court when Clinton actually picked a right wing Democrat, like herself, to be her Vice President? How do we know she won't she wants one to be, as was said about Sarah Palin, "A heartbeat away from being in charge of the entire American military."?

Now, the rest is pure hogwash. The fact that I have proven to myself already is that you are a David Brock/Hillary Campaign troll and this is what you said next, "I am not a real fan of Hillary, either, (Then why would you make a fake Facebook profile to influence us independent issue voters into voting for Hillary, TROLL?) but Trump is a national emergency."  The first half is laughable but the part about Trump - most of us have figured out that he is only on the stage, like you, to scare us into voting for Clinton, the fascist.

ALSO,  THIS IS SUCH AN INSULT TO MY INTELLIGENCE:
"...Sometimes you don't get to choose who you get into the lifeboat with. You just want someone who can row."
Let me please enlighten you;
A) this isn't a lifeboat in which I have no choice in getting in, and even then I can choose to drown rather than to die with a fool,
B) I want someone who can row, true that, but I want someone who rows in the CORRECT direction away from the disaster, not towards it. So take that shit and shove it back up your ass.

Let me give you a lesson in informed voters, we vote based on the issues and you seem to want US to ignore your candidate's stances on issues and vote for her because of A) she is our only hope against Trump and B) because of  Trump being a disaster.
You called everything we cherish unimportant and our voting for Independents a "protest" vote.
PLEASE! Let me correct you.

WE DO NOT VOTE FOR INDEPENDENTS LIKE JILL STEIN BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU AND YOUR PARTY DID TO US, WE VOTE FOR THEM BECAUSE THEY CARE AND WANT TO PUT INTO LEGISLATION THE ISSUES WE CARE ABOUT. THEIR STANCES ON THESE ISSUES ARE LIKE OURS. THAT IS WHY WE VOTE FOR THEM. CHANGE YOUR STANCE ON THE ISSUES (Which Secretary Clinton can't because she is beholding to investors, in both, her campaign and the Clinton Foundation, and because her voting record already shows that she doesn't care about our issues, and so won't do anything about them, no matter what she lies about and says from the podium.) OR EXPECT TO BE IGNORED.

(There I said it, even if it was to a fake meme from a fake profile written by a fake person who will champion any position for the right price.)

Moral Compass - Left, Right, and Centrist

This morning I see some blogger trying to be kind by calling the right wing Democrat pick by Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine, a centrist. Let me explain to those who don't know. It is really easy to see who is centrist or not, real centrists believe in reality and facts, nothing more. Atheists are centrists, also. When one religion over another tries to tell a centrist that their religion (based on mythology) is the "only" or "right" one because of nonsense on top of nonsense comments about mythical people or fables, they politely let them know that they don't believe in any of them, including Satanism that is merely a branch of Middle Eastern religious mythology (Jewish, Christian, and Islamic), constructed mostly on selfish desires.
For instance, Tim Kaine, who has always been noted for taking on a corporatist/fascist (I will mention here that corporatism and fascism are the same thing for anyone who didn't know) Republican style - calling for deregulation of safety concerns and most ethics, all the time in his career, IS NOT centrist.
Calling a war hawk, corporatatist/fascist who is trying to get elected based on being female, having political policy experience, and having lots of experience being on the wrong side of history, repeatedly, who is also married to the biggest undercover Republican that we ever had in the White House. ... A CENTRIST (!!!) is like saying the boat tour at Niagara Falls is 'kind of misty' because of the humidity. There is a reason everyone on the boat wears rain gear and some people need oxygen  masks.


You see there is a reason for a two party system. ONE party is supposed to be liberal/progressive, to use both descriptions. The other is supposed to be conservative/regressive.
Just because someone runs for office under the liberal/progressive ticket doesn't make them voting for conservative/regressive stances on all issues, a "centrist" that makes them conservative/regressive. The same is true of someone who runs under the conservative party banner and adopts mostly progressive ideas. They jumped ship, not compromised. For instance, abortion was decided long ago but some bring up arguments everyday as if somehow they will find some new excuse to over rule the majority. Some politicians say that they are for some issues and policies to get elected and then don't vote the way they said during elections, which is not  misleading, it is LYING, and they all need to be confronted on that corruption.
Believing the idea that we all should believe that tree hugging, sunshine, lollipops, cotton candy, and rainbow colored unicorns are things that we all need to champion in our own lives - is LEFT of center. (I am all for animal rights for your pets but animals we raise for food aren't in that category, so, grow up past a 5 year old mentality and get over it.) Extreme left/liberal people who are like I just described are as disgusting, if not more so - to true centrists - as are Fascist/Right Wing/Conservative types. (We don't need to save the planet, we need to save ourselves. Everything is connected and when we destroy any of it, human beings will eventually suffer.)
Centrists are not concerned with any of most issues demanded by either side.
THE MOST SIMPLE way of defining it is this, "If it works in your life and experience and makes perfect sense with your critical thinking research of the issue, then it is good. If not, it isn't really an issue and so it isn't worth discussing except to point out where they are wrong, periodically. Those periodic times happen when something stupid "this way comes" into the centrist's life, effecting him/her negatively.
Believing that nothing matters except for businesses and your own circle of family and friends, that corporations are people, that the fascist government dictators are supposed be respected and saluted while doing something completely wrong, and that biblical fantasy mythology is real, is conservative/regressive. (It didn't used to be. I grew up around people like Ike Eisenhower and Barry Goldwater, who was ignorant on racial issues but compassionate on many others.)
Seeing facts, as in scientific facts, and everything that you can prove and know to be good, including passion and equality for all human beings is CENTRIST so, don't calls fascism and it's supporters CENTRIST because that would be a big compliment to them and an honor that they don't deserve, along with being a extreme lie and an EXTREME insult to actual Centrists.
And, in summation, believing in conflicting right and left ideologies because of the notion that you have to respect both sides of any beliefs is politically correct, isn't centrist, that is just delusionally confused and ignorant. Black isn't white and white isn't black and trying to call them both shades of grey isn't being cooperative, it is just f**king stupid! Being wrong based on lack of information coupled with wishful thinking and cultural conditioning is just wrong, not your opinion.

Is Anyone Really Surprised?

When I read things like this, there is a mixture of feelings, from disgust and resentment, to confusion and having to realize that I just don't want to believe that my vote doesn't count when certain people decide to take over our country. They did the same in 2000 and 2004 and it is the same crooked players at work.
To those of you who said to me and everyone who realized this, "Oh, you are being unrealistic, you just lost." I have two words. You know what they are.
To anyone who is surprised or even confused at learning that the DNC and especially DWS, cheated and rigged the election, despite the fact that the majority of voters have been saying exactly that for about 9 months, this is what being in denial gets you.
This is the only way a flip flopping, lying, corporate stooge, undercover Republican. who considers a war criminal like Henry Kissinger and a hedge fund manager, Madeleine Albright, her mentors - can possibly win against a peace loving, consistent on all issues, caring about all people type, real American.
I have always seen the cut of her cloth. She is still trying to say that; a) the repeal of Glass/Steagall that caused our economic crisis later on, b) the enactment of free trade agreements, especially like NAFTA that sent our factory jobs over seas and to Mexico and destroyed our factory base (in order to lose our economic superiority and especially hurt the minority community, causing many to enlist in our volunteer army, which was the purpose all along.), and c) the sentencing reform act, that unfairly sentenced one time drug abusers and especially black males, into prison for decades, which also led to our mass incarceration problems (in order to support "for profit prisons) were NOT massively bad ideas caused by her husband, Bill Clinton, and her not admitting that any of this was wrong, especially since she doesn't even understand or find any wrong in, Citizens United, then, Hillary Clinton is a big part of what is wrong in this country and definitely isn't someone who should be in ANY form of government , let alone an extremely influential power situation.
To those of you who are still in denial and trying to blame this on the media, I say, "Please wake the fuck up and smell the coffee!"
This morning a friend of mine said he had given up on Bernie and was going to vote for Hillary, because like Benghazi was months ago, TRUMP. Those of you who haven't been aware, he is a clown who has been put into place, not to win, but the crash the Republican Party into their coffin with a resounding thud, just like he has, and was never going to win.
Listing his future advisers to explain your wishy-washy-ness (like the majority of the Bush administration's cronies), is like saying, "Well if unicorns start flying around, then we will have to worry that horny horse shit is going to start falling on us!"
It isn't going to happen, it never was, he was put in place to scare people into voting for Hillary and many of you fell for it. When even the Bush family, the biggest corporate whore, war mongering group of psychopaths, are endorsing her, then you really should know that fix was in LONG AGO, only this time we were watching for it and they got caught.
The fact that the party named after democracy, undermined democracy, makes me sick.
