From the Bunker
Welcome to the opening post of my syndicated columns.
Cliff Harrison: Syndicated Columns is the startup flagship General column. It incorporates a series of subcolumns which in themselves may one day be their own columns, or maybe not, or as an independent column, syndicated or maybe not.
I know it sounds silly and corny but let me explain it in the simple way Mike Royko might have. Or maybe his alter-ego, Slats. That’s Slats Grobnik for you newbies first discovering old-time goodness. And by the Joe, you gonna hear a lot about the olden days in these here columns and subcolumns.
I have an alter ego, too. A few of them. And I have a few imaginary friends, as well. But not this evening.
I think I just invented a new word, subcolumn(s).
So, what is it? WTF am I talking about?
Every time I think I invented something new for the world and then I do a little research, then I find hundreds of people already invented it hundreds of years ago.
Somewhere buried in my manuscript slush pile I mention that if one person conceives an idea, no matter how unique, sooner or later other people will conceive an identical or similar idea.
I will be talking about a lot of things in a lot of columns and wearing out the keys of my new keyboard until I can get a fancy one like James Rollins bought himself.
It is pretty fancy and pretty expensive, like almost $200, but I doubt the keys will wear out. Me? I’ve been typing for decades, probably long before some of you were born, maybe even before your mothers were born. But then out of memory, I didn’t need to see the letters on the keys of the keyboard because I knew them by heart.
Unlike cell phones, telephones, and calculators the pinkhair designers haven’t messed up the position of keyboard keys far as I know.
Anyway, I sidetracked myself, so to keep this under my 500-word goal, let me get to the point. For a while anyway, I will be using this “general column” to feature “subcolumns.”
The subcolumns are like columns on training wheels. They haven’t yet reached the status of being independent and free or otherwise on their own. They can’t fly solo because they have not yet earned their flying wings. And they certainly can’t soar like an eagle soaring because they haven’t yet earned the respect from their reading audience.
So, they temporarily or maybe permanently work under the general column of this one, Cliff Harrison Syndicated Columns.
From the Bunker will probably earn more haters than lovers. That is okay. Columnists do what columnists do and that is exposing stuff. Like people. When you expose stuff you get people dog gone mad at you, so they spit and threaten and sometimes carry through on their threats, especially if the columnist lives in Russia, or China, or say, the USA.
Columnists get more hate mail, more death threats than most politicians. Look it up.
More than a decade ago, I received a lot of death threats from sources claiming to be connected with a mafia punk I wrote about a lot in my then syndicated columns.
I deleted my friends and family lists, unfollowed all my friends and family on social media, and disconnected completely.
I wound up getting kicked between the legs by both sides. I did it, the disconnection, to protect them.
I take threads seriously. I take all threats seriously.
I will elaborate on those thoughts in another post, but for now, let us talk about the reason I decided to convert blog into columns and subcolumns.
The reason I decided, after long thinking, of restarting syndicated columns and adding subcolumns to that list is because as I told you a few months ago I was rebranding, reorganizing my network media.
I have over 200 legitimate blogs and websites. Some pen named. Some coverts. Some anonymous. Some private. Some collectively huge with what I have had with well over a million or many million follows, viewers or visitors. Some with almost none.
Monetizing each blog or website gets expensive. It collectively drains profit.
Having one or two or three or four flagship blogs or websites that act like the dashboard of one, controlling multiple blogs or the mother ship of blogging or as the aircraft carrier of the strike force or strike group can enhance exposure while streamlining energy and focus.
Instead of working 200-plus individual blogs in a network media without the labor force to help along and to independently supervise and produce, one individual can regroup them into a handful of blogs with the same number of columns as there were blogs, syndicated columns or not, even self-syndicated, as many of mine are or will be.
One individual, a handful of blogs, and multiple columns be like one war admiral commanding a powerful and elite super-class carrier strike force with thousands of warplanes, hundreds of battleships, and warships and well, you get the point.
Many ideas, many subjects can be presented without confusion or duress to the reading audience.
Also, that same principle is spread across many network medias and devices.
On social media with multiple outlets and accounts, columns may be posted daily. Even hourly as some do.
Blogs can be and often are posted weekly or more often, eBooks monthly, more or less.
When Jeff Bezos has a brain tantrum after reading about Mark Zuckerberg and his brain tantrum who is in bed with the Google boys while they scheme how to enslave their users and Jack Dorsey of Twitter fame decided to ban the most powerful man on the planet Earth, the U.S. President, and then all conspire to dominate and control the people. That is tyranny gone wild. It is tyranny out of control. it is the billionaires controlling the masses.
We are a government of the people, by the people, for the people. We the People govern ourselves. We are not a people of dictators who govern us. We are not slaves to billionaires or tyranny.
The columnist, in fact, nearly all writers or authors, protect us from eternal slavery by generating, ideas, thoughts and self-reflection which becomes movements to take down those tyrants, not by guns and violence and vicious criminal acts, but by the swords of the word. Un-huh! The War of Words!
Guess what? The columnists not only survives chaos and attacks of demonic proportion, but destroys the billionaire tyrants and causes their self-destruction, their downfall to accelerate and fast.
Columnists used to cause presidents to have nightmares and sleepless night.
Columnist used to be respectable and appreciated and followed and if I can use the word movement, created many.
They make changes in the world others are afraid to mention or tackle.
Okay, so I’m long-winded, that’s me. The column and the subcolumn will not replace the blogs but reduce their frequency.
Until each column becomes independent, and its training wheels are removed, they will be launched here, under Cliff Harrison Syndicated Columns. From there we will continue to expand. Stay tuned and learn more. And always remember that what you read is food for thought. And independent thought is what keeps you free so no man may make you his slave.
Until we meet again, have a good night, friend, and foe.
Oh, well, okay I overshot the 500-word limit, but I beat the 1,000-word limit. Or maybe I didn’t. I’ll still take it.
(Please allow 72-hours for Freedom editing and proofreading and self-editing to complete.)
Cliff Harrison Syndicated Columns
“I’ll break your jaw!” The unkempt and deranged HELP of Southern Nevada client screamed at me as I approached the door to my apartment.
The CITY of EVIL
He lives next door thanks to the generosity of the taxpayers and the donors. “I’ll break your f’ing jaw! I’ll break your jaw!” He repeated.
You CANNOT Help Someone Who Does Not Want to Help Themselves. PERIOD! So STOP using other people’s money to make yourself rich and the slumlord rich. It is violation of the RICO Act. It is Racketeering. It is unjust. It is fraud on the taxpayers. And, it needs to STOP!
The HELP of Southern Nevada client is a hardcore drug and alcohol abuser the nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization supports via YOUR taxpayer and donor dollars. He was taken into their support system by their programs for the homeless.
That was this afternoon as I returned from the Maverick Apartments laundry room where I had just been verbally attacked and threatened by another degenerate individual the the property owners and managers allow to infest the Ty-De Development property with.
The staggering high and drunk, overly obese woman was smoking in the tightly enclosed laundry room where I had gone to do my wash. The windows have been bolted shut by orders of the Health Department, so fresh air was not accessible.
I asked her if she could take her cigarette outside.
NRS Laws on Smoking
Ranting Violence Gone Wild!
Raving and raging with racist insults and hatred seeping from her pores, slime, and venom dripping from her mouth, she asked me what concern it was of mine. “I can’t breathe,” I stated. “Then you can take your cracker ass outside MFer!” and she went on and on and on.
Like drug addicts and drunks do.
I flat out told her I could not understand her unclear babbling and had no desires to.
As she stared at me with angry facial expressions, she held a gallon jug of bleach in such a manner she appeared ready to throw it at me if her temperament and broken mind decided to.
I was ready to use lethal force to neutralize her threats and end the problem if I needed to.
Raw bleach is a blinding and flesh-damaging chemical.
Should any vulnerable, elderly senior citizen be forced to endure such violent conduct? NO! Absolutely NOT!
EXTREME DANGER AND EXPOSURE TO RISKS
Not only was I subjected to the violence at will while Ty-De Development OWNERS, employees, and managers fail to provide ground security, they fail to enforce the law. I was the ONLY ONE with personal protection wearing both gloves and masks. Not a single person entering the laundry room was wearing a mask. Not one. And there were many.
The managers of Ty-De fail to wear masks although it is the law for them to do so. Not a single one. They are NOT exempt. But obeying the law does not seem to be their strong point or desire.
Fortunately, the clothes in the dryer were only minutes from being done and I could leave.
She never took her evil eyes off me, nor her fat hand off the bleach jug.
I did leave the smoke-filled room with the finished laundry and went back to my apartment.
And there before I reached my home another HELP of Southern Nevada client accosted me, “I’m going to break your f’ing jaw!”
We Need More Body Bags, Please!
He pressed too far and adding more threats to do bodily harm to me triggered my PTSD and I exploded. You do not threaten or get aggressive with people that have PTSD. Doing so could provoke a fatal situation. Society never seems to learn. It is an occurrence that happens around the country daily, if not hourly and the people never seem to suppress it.
I encountered two in less than five minutes’ time. Luckily the one in the apartment on the other side of me was doing something or maybe it would have been three.
Badges of Discourage
Calling “security” a remote and distant force or the police prove fruitless. The immigrant owner from Taiwan is a prestigious awarded-winning UCLA chemist who is a multimillionaire living in a multimillion-dollar Beverly Hills, California mansion. He collects millions off this slumlord neglected Las Vegas property while living the life of Riley, a double life, in Cali where he funnels his millions of dollars into self-serving projects and philanthropy.
He must hold some kind of influence over the Vegas Valley public officials because I have exhausted my efforts for law and order. There is none. Public officials in the Vegas Valley are inept and slow-acting. They act only when you embarrass them and call them out in public in cases like this one.
That is so disappointing and saddening.
Dereliction of Duty
Dereliction of duty is a very serious offense, especially if it falls on top of other charges such as neglect, gross negligence, criminal negligence, and a whole host of like civil and criminal charges. It can be very expensive defending yourself, and if it is a public official the taxpayers may not be footing the bill, but the accused would have to use their own resources to defend themselves.
The same holds true for nonprofit executives, and social workers, especially for felony charges.
If you are aware of illegal, dangerous, or wrong conditions and fail to act as a reasonable person would to correct the problem you could be charged with negligence in either or both civil and criminal offenses.
The owners, managers of Ty-De Development are negligent in providing security. They are negligent in keeping up their responsibility of maintaining their property according to law. Several of the factors go well beyond typical NRS landlord-tenant violations and enter into a realm of very serious civil and criminal litigation well outside those limited NRS pocket-change violations.
HELP of Southern Nevada is negligent in providing supervision of their clientele. They use OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY to dump their unfit and undesirables onto innocent, vulnerable, and elderly individuals. On people who are abused by their predatory criminals.
CAN SOCIETY, OR THE IRS ALLOW A PUBLIC INTEREST ORGANIZATION TO BRING HOMELESS PEOPLE OFF THE STREET HOUSING THEM NEXTDOOR TO ELDERLY AND VULNERABLE PERSONS, ONLY TO SUBJECT THOSE INNOCENT, VULNERABLE AND ELDERLY CITIZENS TO EXCESSIVE AND EXTREME ABUSE? NO HONEST COURT IN THE WORLD NOR A RESPONSIBLE PERSON WOULD ALLOW THAT. And the city, county, state, and federal officials are inept and lacking in the duties of their office with complete and utter failure from top to bottom.
All of this aforementioned material will be exposed in multiple media forms with plenty of supporting evidence to show the charges of repeated violations and concern for violations of law. We intend to PERMANENTLY revoke the IRS 501(c)(3) status of nonprofits operating outside the public interest and of the law or allowing their clients to.
Deport Those Who Subvert U.S. Law
Deportation of individuals in violation of their immigration agreements or lack thereof is inevitable, too. Due to the criminal connections which the subpoena of local first responder records will show. Showing the multi-million dollar cost to taxpayers for violent felon, criminal, and drug-related responses to the property will easily prove our stance. That will not exclude fire and paramedic, local hospital, and morgue records.
All such evidence will add proof of taxpayer costs in allowing this UCLA prize-winning chemist to live in multimillion-dollar luxury while We the People foot the bill for emergency response teams answering the violence and hardcore crime allowed to prosper on his and his daughter’s property.
The paper trails are there. The proof is within the public records that leave without a shadow of the doubt conclusive evidence of neglect and responsibility, which does NOT need to be proven to that degree in civil court.
He Was a Lucky One!
Fortunately, I did not euthanize the freeloading degenerate individual that HELP of Southern Nevada maintains next door to me. I have to wonder if others under the same circumstance would?
Apparently, HELP of Southern Nevada has some sort of long-term rental contract with Ty-De Development, Inc and its property owners and managers. I will be issuing requests for that contract.
As stated, I have to wonder, what other people would do in my situation. I’m sure body bags would become in short supply. I’ve warned them before. Ignorance is bliss. For eight years I have tried to stop the criminal activities HELP of Southern Nevada has housed next door to me with the full knowledge and cooperation of Ty-De Development owners and managers, and most public officials.
We will produce videos of hundreds of drug transactions, drug drops from California and Arizona mules, and pipeline players. We will show you active prostitutes working under the noses of Metro. We will show Metro patrols observing all of this illegal activity and doing nothing about it.
We will show multiple cells as many as seven or eight separate drug dealers living in and operating out of the apartment next door to me while the property manager play ignorance of what a drug dealer looks like. There is a reason why the building is the primarily used one for HELP of Southern Nevada drug dealers. And why Ty-De accommodates the use of this building and not one down in Hidden Village or one less attractive than this one. We will show you why as this series continues.
The drama only begins, as we will show you Metro’s failures. And yet, we will show and name convictions of drug dealers to prove HELP of Southern Nevada and Ty-Dy Development has FULL KNOWLEDGE OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY THEY WERE USING TAXPAYERS AND DONORS MONEY TO SUPPORT. And continue to support.
Put your seat belts on because you, my friends, are going for a ride.
The people renting the apartment on the opposite side of me has taken in a homeless person off the streets who threatens me often, too.
No Reasonable Person or Landlord Would Allow This Kind of Activity
These people were homeless for a reason and it was not because they were stable or had their lives together. Except for the very few that lost their homes due to elderly age or health factors, most of these “homeless” people are hardcore drug addicts or dealers, alcoholics, gamblers, prostitutes or into some other vice or electronic abuse. With them, they bring bedbugs, cockroaches and infest the other tenants with nightmares of bugs. They also bring unhealthy conditions such as spreading the virus.
Such exposures to repeated threats against my life by FREELOADERS and often unauthorized persons trespassing on property they do not have rental rights to could lead to a violent conclusion and that would leave ALL OF THE ABOVE NAMED DEFENDANTS as just that, defendants.
The property owners and property managers (bean counters) could care less who is living in the apartments freeloading rent free if the rent is paid.
Fugitives from justice, child abusers, and pedophiles with criminal records require to register their whereabouts. They don’t when they harbor unregistered persons with tenants that violate their lease and local laws. Many other criminals and wanted persons can skirt under the radar just as easily via homelessness and then hosted in Maverick-Hidden Village apartments. Dozens do.
Any wonder where the Ground Zero bedbug and cockroach infestations come from? Have a clue.
No security. Zero ground patrolling security officers. Zero supervision from the slumlord management team. Nobody of authority walks these grounds to even have a clue of what is going on.
NO MANAGEMENT THAT REAL PROPERTY MANAGERS WOULD CONDUCT. No concern or care of what goes on on the property as long as the rent is paid. Nothing else matters!
Fortunately my items in the dryer where just about complete so I could escape the taxpayer supported drug addicted abusing drunk and her conflict there in the laundry room only to minutes later be engaged by another one at my doorstep.
As we move into the New Year, we have more than enough on our plate. Especially for someone with the chronic illnesses that hold us back from peek performances. The constant abuses from HELP of Southern Nevada clients and other criminals do not help matters, either. They can cause Chronic Fatigue Syndrome stress that in turn causes days, sometimes weeks of total dysfunction and lack of energy and daily ability to function. TORTURE!
We will be covering more about PTSD, CFS, TBI, and other problems with hopes to explain to them so more people become aware of these issues, and can understand them, and learn how to cope with them. We will learn just how many millions of Americans are inflicted with these injures and more.
But we are determined to succeed as we never quit despite the number of demonic adversaries and negative conditions that surround us.
We are in the process of solving major, long-term social problems.
We will be exposing corruption, taking down fraudulent organizations, and assisting in the felony investigations and arrests of multiples people involved in illegal activities or felonies.
We will be pressuring federal, state, and local authorities to do their jobs and keep their sworn oaths or resign with charges of dereliction of duty, negligence, failure to uphold their oaths of office, and in some cases charges of gross and willful misconduct pending. We have already been in contact with many of them since at least 2014. It takes a long time to squeeze justice out of a broken system.
It will all be exposed across the media group’s many publishing outlets. Every bit of it. Eight plus years of it. Minute by minute detail by detail, hour by hour, and thousands of hours of video footage and still photography showing the actual events as they unfold, frame by frame.
It is essential we convey to the people the conduct of those we mention here that are involved in wrongful acts and unfit behavior for their positions. They are in anonymity at the moment, at least most of them, but they shall be named when the time comes. Some are linked herein and can be learned by fundamental self-research of the names mentioned.
I will tell my story across many mediums, including social media, blogs, websites, eBooks, and print books among other avenues. It is a story that needs to be told. And, will be told. There are problems that need to be fixed. Solutions that need to be addressed. Speaking out that needs to be heard. And they will be done.
The discussions will move over a wide area of issues and events all of which can be tagged and categorized as social problems. Some of those topics will include crime, homelessness, drugs and other vices, slumlords, immigration including illegal immigrants and those who came here legally but subverted U.S. laws and thus violate their terms and conditions with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services USCIS), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), among others.
We may even hook up a live feed of the video cams and let you monitor the conditions as they unfold in live time. Links will be provided to those live feeds so you could watch the cam recordings as the events unfold if we chose to go that route. You will have a greater understanding of what the subjects of this report are doing and what behavior and conduct they are leading. The disclosure is unquestionably evidence without a shadow of doubt of what this writer conveys. Live time. Right here. Right now.
Solutions to Problems Other People Create
I do not only offer criticism and reviews, or merely present problems. I offer solutions, too. And solutions to these social problems are not complicated, they just take the will of the people to accept them and demand a change.
Leave Me Alone!
All I wanted to do was be left alone. I wanted to live out my retirement in a peaceful and quite apartment which I could afford with the things I needed to survive within my means. I just wanted to be left alone to write my books and do what I wanted to do with my life. They would not let it be. They continue to refuse to let it be. So, I guess I will write my books ABOUT THEM and tell MY STORY…
The social problems that inflict us are many. Social problems that people create can be solved by other people. It is a management thing. We will solve these problems, or at least present the solutions. What society does with those suggestions is up to the people. The people can keep their broken system or they can fix it. Solving problems is not hard. It just takes will and determination with rational thinking and intelligent decision making. Sometimes it takes an entire new set of laws. We will present those suggestions in the mega series we will begin presenting across the media groups today, now, right here.
We Promised Change and Change is Here
We promised you change was coming across the network. The time has come and it is now. It is here. It has begun. Are you ready?
Across the media group there are many social media groups and pages, blogs and websites and eBooks and print books either in existing form, new startup or works-in-progress that will discuss the slumlord and the inner city and the problems they create. The problems and the solutions will be presented. Names will be named if they deserve to be. And most will. Social problems has a long list of categories and we aim to expose and discuss as many of them as possible.
Villains Are Not Heroes
The offenders owe me restitution and I aim to collect in full.
I will be posting daily for a few days covering the above subject. Then we will move into the diverse subjects of the publishing network bringing you the latest releases.
I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a safe, and happy season to enjoy the best that you can enjoy!
To Justina: 8 August 2019, five years FREE from tyranny oppression. The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave now belongs to you. Never take for granted the freedom and independence that is now yours. Never forget the sisters who perished trying to realize the same dreams you now hold….
The Eyes of the Eagle
Today (7 May 2019) is the last day you can shop at Albertsons and receive free Monopoly tickets for a chance to win prizes. Winners come from more than 1 billion game tickets in play. You could win free groceries, free grocery gift cards, vacations and trips, college tuitions, consumer products of various money-value ranges from a few hundred dollars to a million dollars and cash prizes ranging from $5 to 1 million dollars and much more!
Actually, the Albertsons store I shop at is already out of tickets, so you can’t receive any more free tickets at some of the stores. See “Complaint” below.
There is much mistruth being circulated by some of the Albertsons employees, at least at the store where I shop, so that prompts this article.
I have had several Albertsons employees, including some mid-level managers, state that 7 May 2019 was the last date to redeem Monopoly tickets. That simply just is not true. So don’t throw your unredeemed tickets away. THEY ARE STILL GOOD!
The 7 May 2019 date is the last day tickets are supposedly handed out. But as stated, Albertsons have already depleted their supply a few days ahead of this date.
The online game for entering the code for additional chances to win in a sweepstake ends 17 May 2019 online or must be received by 28 May 2019 for mailed-in tickets.
Winning tickets for the prizes including instant winners and in-store coupons are good and redeemable through Tuesday 28 May 2019. It says so right on the winning ticket. Some special promos have expiration dates as late as 30 June 2019. See the printed information on the tickets for all expiration dates.
Lesson learned: Don’t take people’s word for it, not even managers. DIY and study all aspects of any game you enter. It could be worth a lot of money, and if not, provide some nice little bonuses such as free items. Review all rules and regulations and all information pertaining to the games offered at a retail store or consumer outlets that you decide to participate in. Review them early and don’t wait until the last minute to act such as cashing in winning tickets since supplies could be depleted.
Can’t find your Monopoly board? No worries. You don’t need it. Besides, a website explaining the Albertsons Monopoly Game suggests collecting whole game board pieces is a waste of time and energy. All you need are the RARE GAME PIECES. RARE GAME PIECES NEEDED TO WIN BIG Links to the complete official rules and other information are also included at this site. RULES
According to this website these are the only tickets you need to save: 302BA, 308DB, 309AC, 315CD, 318BE, 321AF, 327CG, 332DH, 335CI, 336DI, 341CJ, 343EJ, 348DK, 351CL, 353AM, 358BN, 362BO, 365AP, 372DQ, 374BR, 379CS, 381AT, 388DU, 391CV, 394BW, 397EW, 398AX, 401DX, 403AY, 404BY, 408AZ, 411DZ, 416D$, 417E$, 419B#, 420C#.
These are rare or very rare tickets. They are worth big bucks.
It is suggested you review this website information since there is still time to win and cash in your winnings.
Don’t discount the opportunity for the second-chance drawings, either. In 2017 a woman won the 1 million dollar prize from entering the second-chance drawing at an Albertsons affiliate store: Million-dollar winner
Next year, start earlier and review the rules at the beginning of the game so you know exactly where you stand and what you need to do. Take full advantage of promos like these since they can total a tidy reward throughout the promotional season. That translates to a cash saving for your shopping budget.
Place all of your Monopoly tickets in one place, a basket, shoebox, whatever so you can find them when you need them and they are not scattered around in clutter presenting a lost opportunity. There is nothing worse than finding a winning ticket after the game is over and the turn-in date has expired.
Don’t waste winning tickets. If you can’t use them, give them to someone who can.
You’ve got to be in it to win. GOOD LUCK!
When the final day of free tickets approaches Albertsons has a habit of passing out extra tickets so they are not left with leftovers. This is a bad policy since I have a stack of tickets that are instant winners for two free tickets each. I am sure many other people have these now worthless tickets, too. Any of those tickets may (or could have) provide bigger winners. Because the Albertsons store where I shop has depleted its supply I am told I could go to another store. WRONG! Albertsons should send out to whatever source they have to and honor these winning tickets and redeem them as a customer deserves. Sure, they can change the rules or put disclaimers like “while supplies last,” but they devalue their own game and reputation when they do this nonsense because they displeased their loyal customer base. Lesson learned. Don’t wait until the last day to redeem your winning tickets. But then, what if those winning tickets for free tickets were among the last handed out? Now what?

Microsoft forces an update.
Adobe requests an update. Fifth one this week. They keep trying to shove that McAfee BS on me. I already have it. Can’t their pink hairs figure that out yet?
Chrome wants to update. No, Chrome forces an update.
Microsoft updates again. And again. And again.
Google updates. No, I got rid of the Google search engine, too much BS and tracking. Too many changes. So I replaced Google with Duck Duck Go, and they update, too.
I get stood up on my updates, every time.
Tech company after social media company after whatever WTF company updates and forces or requests an update. Oh, yeah, let’s not forget WordPress and Blogger and Flogger and YouTube and PooTube.
Update and Update and Update.
And more NOT RESPONDING. NOT RESPONDING. NOT RESPONDING AND THE LITTLE BLUE WHEEL SYNDROME. AGAIN!
Often those updates are not fixing bugs or just fixing bugs, they are completely and in my opinion, fraudulently changing your computer or the software you bought and paid for. Or software you use by being forced to watch ads thereby which is the same as paying for it.
Often they (the Demons in Silicone Valley and Seattle and Utopia) completely change things so they are entirely different than they were before the update and you have to learn how to use the program all over again. As if I have the time. Do you? I don’t.
Imaginary Friend: (I hear his voice.) “Me neither!”
Me: “Shut UP!”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”
Tons of legal garbage to hogtie you with and force fornicate you to comply or else. If you don’t read it you may later be sorry. Very sorry. If you do read it you will fall asleep and completely forget whatever you were doing before the delivery of megatons of legal notices that surrender your rights, nearly all of them.
Wonder why I often call these turds communists?
Because they force you to do things you really don’t want to do rather than giving you an extended time frame to comply and explicit choice to volunteer. Force. They FORCE YOU. Like Mao. Like Kim Jung. Like Castro. Like Stalin. Yeah, those kinds of communists. Well maybe they aren’t that bad, BUT!!!
Tired of the PC running so slow after one of these updates? Or boatloads of updates?
Imaginary Friend: (I hear his voice, again.) “Maybe you have a hacker intruding upon your computer.”
Me: “Nope, we already checked that. You should have known that. And you know, how we completely delete and erase the hacker’s database if they get caught hacking us. The hard drive is gone. Right? Ya saw that done, right?”
Imaginary Friend: (Chuckling) “Funnier than the Benny Hill Show!”
Me: “Yup, now, shhhhh!”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”
These updates are often NOT compatible with each other. One tech company messes up the masterminds of another tech company, (sometimes on purpose… well maybe more than sometimes,) but Silicone Valley is not in a chaos of local revolts and neighborhood wars. They dine together for Christ sakes. But they blame YOU and try to weasel out of blame of themselves as they try to convince you that your computer runs slow because you installed or downloaded another app, software or something else they could blame. Maybe you visited a bad website.
Nope, that sh#t doesn’t work anymore. Been there, done that. Old story. Broken BS.
Imaginary Friend: “Suckered once, fool you. Suckered twice fool me. Huh?”
Imaginary Friend: “Been farmin’ long?”
Me: “SHUT UP!”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”
NO, I DID NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING NEW ON MY COMPUTER! The only download was your freaking UPDATE. SCREAM!
Imaginary Friend: (Louder) SCREAM!
Imaginary Friend: “K.”
Sigh, and just when I was going to write that masterpiece that would earn me the Nobel Peace Prize and a bunch of other awards from the candy store, here comes the update notice reading; UPDATING, PLEASE WAIT. GO TAKE A LUNCH BREAK. HAVE A BEER. GET LOST. And then followed by, NOT RESPONDING followed by here comes that little pisser of a spinning blue wheel.
I have Little Blue Wheel Syndrome to add to my list of illnesses.
Me: Do they have a disability for that?
Imaginary Friend: “Nope. Does not qualify.”
Me: Sigh! SIGH!
Not Responding. Psst… pink hairs why are you still in your mama’s basement? Trump is herr according to Parlor. This is the 21st Century. Get on the ball. You should make things better, not worst. You should make things easier, not harder. Life 101.
When all these tech companies decide they will UPGRADE your computer (at the same time no less) rather you like it or not and force you–WITHOUT YOUR ATTORNEY PRESENT–into agreements that will take Elizabeth Warren and Perry Mason decades to learn about, to figure out and defend against, let’s look at why sh#t goes into NOT RESPONDING mode.
(Forget the hackers, the downloading of software or apps or viruses or malware, [which can sometimes or even frequently be the problem,] it’s all in the updates. Incompatible updates.)
All these tech pink hairs which certainly graduated in the bottom feeder half of their class decide because their bottom-feeding boss tells them to make a change… (often to spy or eavesdrop on the victim user) you know HOPE with red and blue and shades thereof. And poof, they update. And busloads of pink hairs from a busload of tech companies do the same. You know we all copy each other because nobody has a brain between their ears for anything other than dull space. There is little or no unique ability anymore.
Bingo, all these upgrades to all these apps and software, and even hardware are not compatible with each other. Not that the pink hairs care or even do their freeloading masters, but just the same you are stuck with that little pisser of a blue wheel spinning and spinning and spinning. YOU MUST pause to wonder if that little pisser of a spinning blue wheel is powered by the Energizer battery or related to the Energizer bunny. I mean, there is evidence of the color pink in the genetics of their DNA, is there not?
Imaginary Friend: “LMFAO!”
Imaginary Friend: “Why don’t they make that little spinning wheel pink?”
Me: “You finally said something intelligent.”
Imaginary Friend: “Can we call it Pink Hair Syndrome now?”
Me: “Hold that thought.”
Imaginary Friend: “K.”
(Imaginary Friend recites Congressional rehearsal:) “Whereas, WE THE PEOPLE, cast to the Dark Forest those individuals that ruin our day, or night.” (We can only HOPE.)
Me: “I think you are on to something.”
Imaginary Friend: “Me,too.”
Now, what was I going to write about in my Dark Forest novel that has been a work-in-progress for years and years?
I forgot. That little pisser of a blue wheel sucked up all my energy and frustration.
Imaginary Friend: “Maybe you should ask Ian Morgan, he knows everything.”

Jeff Bezos has surpassed Bill Gates as the world’s richest man and his company, Amazon, passes Gates’s Microsoft as the world’s most valuable public company.
It only took 25 years for Jeff Bezos to take a company now named Amazon.com from a private garage to one of the largest companies in the world. Founded in 1994 Bezos started in the used book business and sold his first book in 1995.
Bill Gates and his partner, Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, began their road to riches from the humble beginning started in a private garage, too.
Mark Zuckerberg and his co-founders started Facebook in a college dorm room. There are thousands of examples of how Americans started with nothing and built an empire. Why are they hated so much and attacked so often?
Three years ago college graduates could not find a job. Many lived in their mother’s basement and were in despair. Now many of them have their own companies and are are climbing the corporate ladder and are planning their own company. That’s what the Americans do, they dream the American Dream.
While socialists and socialism are rising like out-of-control weeds in a garden crowding out American Dreams and prosperity, they denounce the wealthy people and the big companies they own. They are calling for taxes as high as 70% on the very companies started by college dropouts and people just like themselves. America and Americans produce yet again world examples that one can, in the freest and most independent land in the world, go from rags to riches, broke to wealthy by following their dreams and working hard.
Now why would anybody want to destroy that?
A young, Saudi Arabian woman, Rahaf al-Qunun, is struggling for freedom and independence after escaping her patriarch family in the Middle East. In nations like Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally of significant importance, females, even adults do not have freedom or independence. If Ms. Mohammed a-Qunun is forced to return to her home country of Saudi Arabia it is certain she will be another victim of honor killing.
The bridge from slavery to freedom is a daring and risky thing to cross. So is the bridge from destitution to financial security. Those that dare to risk everything and take those challenges of crossing those bridges have the most to gain.
We have become a world that wants to punish those who have accomplished so much and reward those who have done little to help themselves or the world. That just doesn’t seem right.
