    Jimmy Fishbob Geraghty The(y) need to pay a franchise fee to county and towns and cities...
    and if this is a transition to delivering historical cable data then they need to also change those rules...
    sneaky little bastards always trying to kill local public access, education and government channels.
     
    David Curtis If they ask, please tell them they can put a small one at my house because our service sucks ass, but yeah...
     
    David Curtis I will only charge them (    ) $5K per month.
     
    David Curtis I hope it rotates so I can "aim" it at my neighbors...
     
    Mimi Newton Fairfax has spent decades carefully regulating our quality of life - it's not perfect but allowing the corporate donors at the State level to basically buy their way out of our standards is soooo aggravating! How are we supposed to keep up with the full time, well paid lobbyists onslaught every freakin' day of the week! Effing David & Goliath battle of biblical proportions - argh!!!
    David Curtis By paying for their lap dances in Vegas, duh. Which are still somewhat of a bargain (in theory).
     
    Mimi Newton Ah, the Green Lapdancing Strategy! It's like our version of the nuclear option?
    David Curtis It's better because it typically involves liquor. (in theory)
    David Curtis (In theory) it's better if they come to you though, those clubs seem creepy and sad. When (redacted) interviewed me, the principal insisted I go to one (when in the interview he seemed shocked to learn I did not go to strip clubs)
     
    (My attorney wrote that last part)
    David Curtis The principal was nice but totally a perv.
    (Speaking w Legal) It's ok, he is ok with his perv...(So it isn't like I outed him just now...)
    Totally not like those (mostly) Catholic priests or whatevers...Similar to "Russian Agent"
     
    Footnote: Legal did some clean up there.

  • Single Payer Town Hall

    I posed 4 questions

    at the recent Single Payer Town Hall at Redwood HS. To my knowledge none of the questions were asked of the panel, but I did receive answers from persons on Facebook.

    I will post the edited relevant exchange. The best answers were given by a Facebook user who falsely assumes me to be homophobic and after briefly allowing me to post his answers he then demanded I delete them.

    Single Payer Town Hall Questions 1-4:

    What evidence exists that single payer might be better than market competition?:

    DC: If every other system jumps off a cliff that is still not my problem.
    DC: Here is a system I could support: I go to a doctor, I pay them. If you can't pay for your doctor then medicare pays. End of drama.
    (Facebook user: comment deleted by request)

    If access to care is a right, why do people charge money?

    (Facebook user: comment deleted by request)

    If single payer passes, will we pay doctors directly or through a middle man?

    (Facebook user: comment deleted by request)
    Why does "access insurance" need to be mandatory and why is that my problem?

    (iphone photo by M. Glickman)

    555 California, (Orange Devil owns 30%), is closed today for July 4th.

    We're at some mall in Corta Madera, CA, by the REI place. There are a bunch of sirens going off. I don't know if it is fire trucks or what. The iphone battery is (expletive) at this point, I forgot to charge it, and don't have the solar charger. M is shopping for (something) for Hawaii. 75% of the stores are closed for a parade.

    The parade seems to be random sirens going off. I can't see from where this is originating. The empty mall has that (vacant) Italian town painting quality.

    Is the 4th of July the most irritating holiday now? Can it possibly rival the Xmas month? Pack it all into one 3 day weekend?

    I attempt to locate a Starbucks (there is no local option)

    It shows up on the directory a color coded weak green. But the number assigned to it: 207, there is no 207 on the map.

    I settle for DavidsTea, the clerk asks "which one would you like?", I stare at the hundred or so steel canisters arrayed against the wall.

    I ask: "Which tea is best for random sirens going off?"

    She suggests: "I like Jasmine."

    (I realize the music is songs from the TV show the Love Boat.)

    I tell the clerk: "This is from the Love Boat...I'm so sorry".

    (She laughs.)

    I say: "I didn't say this but, when I worked in a department store during college, I used to lift up the ceiling tiles and cut the speaker wires."

    A strange tag team combo of sun, wind, and sirens is making it somewhat unlikely the writing will continue.

    Back suburbia, back...

    interruptions every five minutes.

    I don't even bother trying to draw when it gets like this.

    (Supposedly this is a holiday weekend.)

    Flesh bots roasting on an open fire.

    Shotguns nipping at ur nose.

    Wild hunt songs being sung by a choir.

    Punks dressed up like Navajos.

    Evrybdy knows.

    A turnkey and some missile silos.

    Help to make the city white.

    Tater tots with their edge all a glow. Will find it hard to sleep outside.

    We know that:

    Satan's on his way.

    He's loaded lots of boys in hoodies on his sleigh.

    & every mollified is gonna sigh.

    2 see if drone bombs really know how to fly.

    And so I offer up this simple phrase

    to whom it may concern still...

    (Is this a day off? Can this be a day off?)

    DC July 4

     

  • Letter to Bank of America

    6 30 2017
    Bank of America Card Services
    PO Box 981811
    El Paso, TX 79998-9986

    Reference number: 4051564550

    To whom it concerns,
    I applied for an Amtrak World Mastercard recently and received a notice from you that the request was denied due to my "not having sufficient number of credit references" and not having "sufficient established revolving credit accounts". I am a self-employed principal designer who makes in excess of (redacted) per year. I pay cash for things typically, but when my fiancee applied for a Virgin America Visa recently only to have the airline then be purchased by Alaska Air so Virgin can con people into doing space flights for kicks, I thought maybe I should just start taking Amtrak. Also I find the whole TSA bullshit hazing rituals at the airports to be too upsetting. So I am restricting my travel to Amtrak, cars and boats if at all possible. I also would not normally do business with BofA, or any bank for that matter. I am a long standing credit union member in San Rafael. This adverse decision by your bank (for no justifiable reason) is an example of why I don't work with banks. I will continue to use Amtrak but I have nothing good to say about BofA at this point. I hope Isis or somebody targets BofA soon. You folks would sure deserve it.

    Best regards,

    David Curtis
    San Rafael, CA
