No Fair Play for Poor and Un-famous Child Molesters!

Why is it that when the rich and famous are arrested and imprisoned for their acts of filth and debauchery they always seem to get terminal illnesses, or rare heart conditions, that require them to be released for 'special' medical care. Today, it's Roman Polanki's turn to get an 'illness' and have to leave jail in Switzerland and be taken to a Zurich hospital for 'tests'. Is he afraid that his detailed confession all those years ago might just hold up in a court of law? Preposterous! Are they checking for a possible low sperm count which may require the sacrificing of an underage virgin? Maybe so! He was after-all a guest of the French government, which obviously condones underage sexual encounters since they've been holding him at bay from the evil American justice seekers all these years. That's even more disturbing is that they accepted him with open arms and evidently NOBODY in France ever heard that he'd made a detailed confession of his lewd crimes against a child. The French government has changed control many times since then and still they protected him. Makes the French look like a bunch of deviants unfortunately. I know they're not that kind of people but you are judged by the company you keep and who you harbor. Now, look who's vocal about dropping chargers against him here, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese! We all know what's under Woody's bed, or should I say who's 'IN' his bed, but what might Martin be hiding? We may want to know what, or whom, before going to see his next movie. Good attracts good and trash, well, you know.

Maybe Polanski is having flashbacks of feeding booze and drugs to that 13 year old girl before he sodomized her. (Wikipedia definition: Sodomy (pronounced /ˈsɒdəmi/) is a term used today predominantly in law (derived from traditional Christian usage) to describe the act of anal intercourse, oral intercourse, or bestiality.) Nice Roman, real nice! Proud of your 'conquest' of a young, pre-nubile girl? Probably! Bet you felt you showed her a thing or two, huh? Who's your daddy now?

How proud his family must be with their "successful movie director in the family"! Oh, wait a second, didn't most of them perish in the Holocaust in Poland? That was terrible and unfortunate on many levels of humanity. What a way to carry on the name of a good family. What a disgrace.

This should leave a message to people who want to commit crimes and feel they can 'buy or influence' their way out. They need to get the same treatment that a someone from the inner city would get and go to the same institutions they get to go to. THAT would send a message, it would for me in their place.

It's just how I feel about those that commit crimes against the elderly and the underaged. It's as low as you can go! Also, as the title of this article say's about fair play for the poor and un-famous child molesters, there should be no fairness, only hostility, for any and all child and elder molesters! Live like a sick animal, end up like a sick animal.

Did I mention that he actually confessed in great detail to his crimes against this 13 year old girl and ran when the judge decided not to allow a plea bargain? He wanted his cake and he wanted to, never mind. Hmmm, I think I did to a good degree!

Chantix and Me

The recent articles on Chantix as a smoking cessation medication have reported negative side effects and may well be valid, for some individuals. I, for one, am an exception to that situation. I had to arm twist(figuratively) my doctor to write me a prescription for it because I had been smoking for over 20 years, was tired of coughing, tired of wheezing in bed trying to sleep, tired of the cost, and tired of stinking of tobacco all the time! I started the program (without using any of the support services they offer customers) on May 5th of 2007. I wanted a date to easily remember (Cinqo de mayo). I followed the instructions on the starter pack and by the end of the first week I no longer had a desire to smoke. I had no craving for a cigarette. I had no food cravings or other oral substitutions to replace the cigarette, and most importantly I had no indication of ANY withdrawal at all! None, Nada, Nicht, Nyet! Since that date my doctor still asks me how many cigarettes I'm down to because my blood pressure and blood chemistry look so much better. I give him the same answer I gave him when I went back for the second refill prescription - none! I took the Chantix for 8 weeks and stopped because I felt I was past the worst of it(missing the habit of lighting up) and had no desire for a smoke at all. This coming Cinqo de Mayo of 2010 will be my 3rd anniversary of being smoke free. Another benefit I realized from being on the Chantix was that I could stand in the middle of a group of smokers and feel NO compunction to light up, even just one.

There is one requirement to being on Chantix and being successful with it! This is a very important item now and you must pay close attention if your planning on opting for this route! I have seen a few friends fail the Chantix program because they didn't have this one requirement firmly in place. Ready for the answer? It's an easy one that has a higher failure rate if not seriously considered.

You deep down have to WANT to quit smoking. You need a reason that is important to you to keep in your mind that wants you to quit. Mine was coughing when trying to laugh, wheezing, shortness of breath doing simple physical tasks, high blood pressure and all of that while entering my 50's. I don't want to die! I want to live! The cigarettes were going to kill me before I was ready to go and I want to live as long as I can, without oxygen tanks or riding in scooters or having chemo tubes hanging out of me!

I want to point out to anyone who may feel apprehensive about taking Chantix after reading the Stephen King version of side effects. The government requires ALL reported effects to be listed, even if the product didn't cause it because the treatment was in place and it was considered relevant to be reported as raw data.

I did not have ANY side effect that was listed, or unlisted, during the time I took this medication. I'm not from the planet Krypton, I'm not bionic, and I don't attend Hogwarts School of Magic and Wizardry! I am an average Joe who achieved success in my desire to quit smoking everything. I felt GREAT while I took it and felt the benefits soon afterward while my system was weening the nicotine out of my brain and bloodstream and tissues. I've been able to lose weight and not feel a replacement habit to be in order and I'm able to list myself as smoke free for insurance purposes now, which also saves money!

If anyone has ANY questions about Chantix and would like my take on it just leave a comment and I'll be happy to help. To set the record straight, I don't work for Pfizer (makers of Chantix) and I'm not being compensated for this article. They are just my honest thoughts that I wanted to share with anyone who may be interested, especially since the negativity that surrounds Chantix may not be coming from health related sources entirely. There are some that will lose revenue if too many people stop smoking. You know who they are! Ride em' cowboy!

I will be repeating this article on all my blogs today for full exposure to me varied readers. Please excuse the redundancy for my writing. David.

Beware of Rogue Widgets and Gadgets

I have had a few run-ins with PayPopUps taking over my websites. I was going insane trying to lock down the cause to the point where I took ALL my widgets and gadgets off 3 of my sites just so my readers could actually get to the reading material without enduring the painful page sized PayPopUps. When I had my third go round with these I started to think outside the box. I knew that the templates were not the cause since I used 3-4 different ones per site without success. I knew there was something on these sites that was very wrong because my fourth site was pop-up free and had been clean since the beginning. I finally found the answer to my problem and was I 'pissed'!

All I can advise you to do before installing any widget or gadget to your website is to 1. who is the author of the widget, 2. what is it going to do, 3. does it have a relationship to the name on the widget, and 4. what are you agreeing to let it do to your site? I never checked 1-4 when I installed a Google Page Rank widget on my 3 sites. That's the one that I trusted to be a Google product and continuously returned to the sites. The 4th site didn't want widgets because it's a business site. I happened to be looking for a newer style of PR widget and went to where I found the last one when I couldn't find the widget on Google gadgets. Come to find out that the Google PR widget was a third party widget that, when you installed it for your rank to show, I agreed to allow a pop-up to take place when the page was opened and advertise a product or service of their choice. I was livid, not so much at them but at myself, for not reading further when I found the widget. I've found similar widgets on other sites that do the same thing this one did.

I have NO Google Page Rank widgets on any of my websites and have had no further incidents like these happen again. My advertisers were getting quite upset when they couldn't gain access to my site to see their adverts. The adverts help defray the costs of these sites but what do they care. Just beware when you grab that 'cool' widget or gadget. Read the whole page for conditions! Happy Motoring!

Do You Understand The Terms and Benefits?

When I got my first car I was elated. It was a very used(father to brother to me) 1964 Chevy, which I wish I still owned, but that's another dream in the box. We exchanged papers and I got the title for $1.00. My insurance for the car cost me about $150/year. Wow, I really wish I had that back! The current economic situation in the United States, not to mention the majority of the world, is somewhat restrictive right now. Every company out there is telling you on the tv and radio that they are the cheapest and the most responsive. You need to do your serious talking to companies that will provide you with an honest quote of costs to you for what you need. There are signs of improvement but it will take time. Buying a car for newly licensed teens will be harder and insuring them will be another hurdle.

How many jobs, part time while students, will it take to pay for the car and the required insurance necessary top put a car on the road legally. Lawyers are getting fat on litigation caused by under-insured motorists and teens are getting the biggest hit due to inexperience behind the wheel. I can't say I completely agree with the logic that all teens are reckless because living in Florida I have sen MANY elder drivers get caught up in as well as cause accidents due to poor judgement and/or slow response time to situations. One woman was stopped because she had someone caught on her car and drove about 2 miles before a deputy saw them holding on and stopped her. She said she never heard or felt anything on her car or heard the man screaming to her. I'm not saying all elder drivers are hazards, just some and I defy anyone to deny they haven't seem a few of their peers drive badly in their time.

The problems inherent with teens are speed and distractions. The normal teen, and I felt the same way then, feels invincible behind the wheel and nothing will happen to them. Sorry, too many news stories about teen deaths on the roads. The roads in Florida are full of crosses with names and ages on them of young drivers or passengers that were once immortal. Many youthful injuries are crippling for life as well. Unless you have the needed coverage, even if you are considered a risky driver due to tickets or whatever, you could financially cripple yourself and your family with just one collision. There are still many states that have what is called No Fault Insurance where drivers, unless criminally responsible, share the accident. I have provided some useful links in this post for newer and not so new drivers to use to get properly insured. They have many useful levels of information and definitions of things like what makes up the cost of insurance and why. They are not an insurance company but rather an auto insurance resource for finding a company that you would like to deal with for what you need, nationwide. I would not mention them if I didn't think they had anything useful to offer my readers. Let me know what you think. Dave

I Finally Got a Good Deal!

Here's the story, I'll keep it as brief as possible. A few months ago I went to the garage to get an alignment done and replace two Sumitomo HTR tires that were going smooth. Yeah, that's a good word, smooth. I told the garage owner he may as well replace the four tires and keep them balanced and he said it wasn't necessary right now because the two remaining tires were fine. That was my first mistake because I should have pushed the issue and forced my money on him. That was then and this is now!

Needless to say, those two 'fine' rear tires are now smooth and the Goodrich Radial T/A front tires are still beefy with nice deep tread. I like good tread depth because I travel the highway about 75 miles a day for work and I don't need rain issues. Okay, all well and good, just call him up and have him order me two more Goodrich Radial T/A P185/70 R14's. Right? If I splashed water on a live electrical circuit I'd have better luck! "Oh, I'm sorry," I'm told by the helpful girl at the garage, "those tires are discontinued and there isn't anything similar for your car available"! Now I'm really ticked off! I asked her what we could do since these tires are still in excellent shape and she said I could take time out from my workday and go there to look at tire 'pictures' and pick something close. In a pigs eye!! I said thanks and ended the call. I wasn't going to get mad at her since it wasn't her decision about the tires before.

Let's skip ahead! I went to Tire Kingdom and they had nothing appropriate but they could order me 'something close to my size' and I said thanks, I'll call you. I went to Topline and had the same results. My next step was to do a search on the Internet. I figured it was probably cheaper to go straight to the source. You can probably guess the result there as well, only worse. Way back when I had to decide on the Sumitomo HTR tires the other choice was the Pirelli P4 tire. The HTR's were on sale at Sears so they got the nod. These tires were not a good investment for all my highway driving.

Is there a silver lining? Let's find out. I figured the Pirelli's should still be available so let's see the price on them now. I saw listings on the regular search engines from $ 115 to $ 73 per tire and that was going to be the deal breaker again on the P4's. Too much money! One last tire web search I saw a recommendation from a happy person talking up this this search site that wasn't biased towards paying advertisers, so I checked it out. I never heard of ShopWiki but then again nobody ever heard of me before and now I have page rank on Google. I did a search for the Pirelli P4 P185/70 R14 and to my chagrin, the P4 price was $ 52 per tire. I almost had an accident in my chair when I saw that. I got out the Discover card with the lowest balance and placed the order. The screen said 2 were available immediately and the other 2 would ship when their order came in. I can deal with that since I needed 2 right away.

The bottom line is this, don't give up looking for a better deal because there's usually one out there, if your persistent. I don't care if you go to Goodrich, Firestone or if your really stupid, a shopping club that gets tires like the lower grade stuff that that big box store sells. Be the smart consumer and save when you can, after all, surfing the net is free, over paying for merchandise isn't.
