If life gives you lemons, make lemonade, drink it, and move on!!!

There you go... so many people waste their lives complaining about problems, instead of doing something about them and moving on!! And what does that get you? Regret that you did not do anything and/or putting the blame on someone else for your problem!!

social security disability, self-inflicted,

And another thing... what is with all of the people that cause their own condition and then expect us to pay for them? I myself have ataxia, a fatal condition, which it is true, I am on social security disability. Now many other people have conditions, like MS, MD, CP, or numerous others that are something that they have had no control over? Other people have conditions THEY caused, i.e. bad knees ( yes I know someone who collects because he is to fat, which has caused his knees to go bad), emphysema, alcoholism, and other self-inflicted conditions. One lady a friend knows collects $800 a month because she is lazy,( nothing medically wrong) and yet she bitches when s.s. makes her do volunteer work for the money. Since when is laziness and drinking oneself stupid entitles you to collect money for causing your own problems!? Everyone I know including myself, with a disease that is fatal or very debilitating, would be all to happy to earn a living if they could!! Why then, should those that are to lazy or have caused their own condition, be allowed to collect under, what I consider to be a false pretense?

Do you believe it, at this age?

I was talking with someone the other day about something we both had witnessed. At one point she said "I seen it", when should have been "I saw it"! Now when you are talking with children that are below the age of, say, 12, one expects misuse of the English language once in a while. But this was an adult I was talking with!! And another thing.. what is with using the work ax instead of ask? Are you saying you want to chop me up? Were you not taught how to pronounce certain words or their meaning? It is amazing how some people do not bother to speak correctly when these same people get offended when they are not understood! Communication, which is the key to any successful relationship, be it business or personal has to start with basic skills!! There is nothing that makes one sound more stupid, at least in this persons view!! There you go!!

company theft

Ever wonder why things are so expensive? One reason is company theft! Most companies have employee theft, but none is more pervasive that I know of than the auto industry. For years I have heard from employees themselves that many take parts home. To the extreme that a whole car has been built using stolen parts! This would be bad enough, but what is more sad is the ease and lack of guilt that I have been told about these unlawful events. When was the last time that you were told - "the company owes me" or "they can afford it"? This kind of behavior makes me very upset in good time, but especially now, when people are losing jobs.

pass the cost on to customers?

to be cont...In Ann Arbor, for example, one popular food chain pays three hundred dollars a month for their managers to park!! Since the city charges this much, it is not to hard to believe that most if not all chains are charged this much! And do you think they pay this as a cost of business without passing it on to the consumer? One answer=NO!! All businesses, especially the ones selling food make such a big profit, that there is NO reason why this kind of expense should be passed on to us!.... And another thing... if healthy food is so good for us, why is it so damn expensive? It almost seems that the food industry in general wants to keep their profits high while keeping the quality of the food we eat low! And why not unhealthy and overweight people are great customers for medical businesses! Have you ever seen a fat person as a poster child for health foods?...but you have for a slew of medical conditions! Comments encouraged!!

With today being the day when allot of people go into la la sports mode, I feel this is very much needed! The super bowl and most pro sports are made out to be far more beneficial for society than they really are. Take, for example, the countless hours people waste in front of their TV listening to news people who have never even been involved in a sport that they are talking about. When was the last time you or your friends got together to talk about others that excel in education? A night watching Jeopardy or the national spelling bee? NO, people are caught up watching others makes millions by throwing, passing, dunking, for reasons that mostly benefit gamblers , players, and owners!! And who actually understands a player or coach when they are interviewed after the game or big play? Which in right to one of the points I am talking about, these guys need education more than basically hitting each other. When is the last time that a football, baseball, basketball, hockey or other sport enlightened your mental state or benefited the economic future for your family?

in a hurry? speed up to stop,

and still... Have you ever had this happen to you? A driver speeds up to pass you just to cut you off and get off at the next exit or stop at the next light? And then that car is in the ironic position of being laughed at by you for acting like such a moron!! These people seem to be in a hurry but do not really have a clear cut plan of the best way to get to their destination.

common sense, manners, rude, respect,educate

And another thought... when you see someone say or do something that you know is wrong, do you tell them? I think that ii is our duty to tell adults, much like kids, when the adults do or say something that is filthy or against doing what is decent. For example, how many of us say anything when an adult uses bad language in public? But the same word or action gets immediate rebuke for a child, because we are trying to teach the child how to act?! I, for one am sick of seeing adults who swear, are dirty, treat others bad, or just act without manners in public!

Insane prices for prescription drugs...

I would like feedback on this!! I went to get my medications today and one of the medications was one dollar, a generic, the other, Lipitor, not a generic was one hundred dollars!! And that was my copay! I was told by the pharmacist that since a generic is not available yet, the company is taking advantage of that fact. I know the drug industry is a business, but they, like, the insurance and medical fields, really have the public by the coconuts.
