BOTTLED

July 29th, 2014

The very first brand of bottled waters (individual bottles of 10 or so ounce size) that I can find that does not have the water in their bottles right up to the tip top of the bottles, well, assuming it tastes reasonably good, that’ll be the brand I buy henceforth……………now mind ya, no one I’ve made this complaint to, either in or outside my family, has seemed to think it’s much of a problem………..and I suppose it ain’t to most folks, but by dang it, to me and my old hands it’s really a nuisance when opening a bottle of water and nearly every time some of it spills out the top simply because it was filled to the very top and in order to twist open the cap I apparently squeezed the flexible plastic bottle a bit too much, and the least little bit will force water out the top…………so then I have a few drops of water to either clean up off’n the floor or off’n my clothes, assuming I’m lucky enough it did not spill on my computer’s keyboard or some other electronic or water sensitive device.

My bottom line is this, please, some bottled water company give more consideration to old people, people who are likely to lack the motor dexterity to gently open a flexible plastic bottle without having to squeeze it a bit to prevent it from falling out of their hands……………and then too there’s one more thing that would especially show some consideration of us people no longer in our physical prime………which is that a bottling company……….and also the retail stores that sell the bottles………..please see that you have some for sale other than in groups or packs of 24 or more………….I mean really, so far, with only a little difficulty, I can handle your 24 packs, but then I go to wondering how a frail elderly woman still on her own is going to do so………OK, so you have someone in the retail store load them up for her, maybe even take them to her car for her, but then what does she do with’em when she gets home?  Ah, but I suppose you have the answer for that too………she simply hauls them one by one from her car into her house…………yep, that’ll work, never mind all that walking she’ll be doing on her arthritic knees, or perhaps artificial knee or even knees, or possibly even an artificial hip or two, not to even mention the work involved for her arthritic hands to pick up, hold onto, and carry each bottle into her house…………..and this is assuming that there is no snow or ice on the ground nor any rain falling nor sunshine so hot it’s likely to cause her to have a stroke.

LISTEN

July 29th, 2014

If only more people would listen to the calm and reasonable arguments of the author of this column………..or should I have said “read” his arguments?………but whether one listens or reads his arguments, surely they will find them very difficult to discount…………personally, I find his arguments relating to the subject of this column to be so obvious that even I was thinking the very same thing, although certainly not nearly so clearly as I do after having read the column…………….in fact, when I try to think of myself as being an Israeli in Israel, I know that my imagination comes up far short of what it must be like to be under constant threat of attack, yet feeling forced to restrain myself from fighting back……………and yet, it seems most of the world is in sympathy with those who continue to waste their resources on violent aggression rather than use those resources to build and maintain the structures and services needed to create a decent society for their people……………to me, those continuing their unprovoked aggression are simply stupid and those that condone it are simply too far away to really understand what is going on, just that that they want peace at any cost, that is so long as it cost themselves nothing at all………or so they’re thinking.

25

July 27th, 2014

Execution delayed for 25 years?  How absolutely horrible those years had to be for relatives of the two victims the man brutally murdered.  And any sympathy for such a man is so terribly misplaced as to certainly be far, far beyond my ability to even about to understand it………….and then too, why does anyone pay any attention anyhow to those who moan and groan about executing such a man……..I mean really, to me these moaners and groaners are not truly concerned all that much for anyone or any thing, it’s simply that they enjoy doing their “moaning and groaning”, and especially the media attention it gives them.  So first we see these ridiculously long execution delays, and then we hear the “moaners and groaners” using these long delays that they themselves asked for, as being so extremely expensive as to therefore be a reason not to do executions………….like a lifetime in prison would be cheaper?…………”cheaper” would be an almost immediate execution upon conviction…….and once “immediate execution” was performed with regularity, the media would soon loose interest in most of’em and so of course would most of the “moaners and groaners”.

EXPIRED

July 26th, 2014

Since this domain name “panfisher.com” is set to expire today with its current holder, I am a bit concerned that there might be a “hole” in the time of its availability to me before the new holder I am hoping to get for it,  officially has it………………therefore, this particular blog is really just a test to see if it’s still working as expected……………and I’ll do another similar test tomorrow morning.

REFRESHING

July 22nd, 2014

Columns such as this one, are very refreshing to me………..it really does refresh me to know that I am not alone in thinking the thoughts that I think…………and it especially refreshes me to know that my mind often runs along similar thoughts to those of such a brilliant person as is the author of this column……..and so for this columnist I am very, very thankful, especially since he says so clearly those things that I too think, but am unable to say clearly.

Again, this column so very refreshing since it clearly says what I too think about our “immigration” situation………..and I truly believe that most others in this country think the same or almost the same….sure wish there was a way I could know this for sure.

HOW

July 19th, 2014

Just how in the hell, or perhaps “why” is the better question, was Lynndie England included in a U.S. Congressman’s group about to visit Russia?  I mean really, as absolutely terrible as was the “shooting down” of a plane with nearly 300 civilians on it is…..and as justified as the whole world is in wanting some answers as to the “how or why” of it, it sure seems to me to be a diplomatic blunder of the first order to have such a person as Lynndie England included in a U.S. Congressman’s group recently trying to visit Russia.  I mean really, in the entire history of the United States, it has been extremely rare, not only for such a low position person, but also for one with such a low-life character, both personally proclaimed and personally demonstrated, to have contributed so much as she did toward a very bad image of the United States……..yet, here she is showing up again, and this time even with some supposedly very prominent people……and in my opinion, in a situation far too sensitive for such as her to even be seen or heard.

FATHERS

July 18th, 2014

This column, along with the comments at its end, says a big part of what I’ve been thinking, and saying, for a few years now……….and it also explains why I have been so bothered by this trend in the treatment of men in our mainstream media, our TV shows and our movies and even in much of today’s advertising……and then of course there’s many of today’s interactions (in my opinion, very detrimental to men) between men and women within our society that is due mostly to the previously mentioned media, TV shows, movies and advertisements…….. so, be a man a father now or a father to be or even if not intending to ever be a father, surely it is time for all men to say “no mas” and start acting accordingly………by “accordingly” I mean respectful, considerate and protective of our most precious persons”.

DEFENSE

July 16th, 2014

How anyone can not agree with this column is beyond me………with no effective “defense” of our individual selves and of our country, sooner or later, we will be overwhelmed by forces determined to be our rulers…….and by “defense” I do not mean just an armed and ready military force, but also a change of our social attitude to where as individuals we are not only allowed, but actually expected, to defend our selves, our family and our property from any and all who would harm us or take from us……and this includes the prevention of any and all those entering this country un-invited, because to enter anyone’s home un-invited is an open declaration of a desire to take what  they might want, regardless of our willingness to give it.

BEST

July 16th, 2014

Here are two of the best columns I’ve ever read by this man, who sometimes lets his conservatism go a bit overboard relative to my own conservatism, but with these two columns, I think he does a superb job of saying what he says without going overboard……certainly not overboard in my own opinion…….yep, I thoroughly enjoyed reading both columns, so much so that I am inclined to make a “donation” per his not so subtle suggestion, or else due to my own twinge of guilt, am not real sure which.

BAFFLED

July 13th, 2014

I am extremely baffled as to why, per the continuing reports I read, a majority of Jews still give Obama any approval rating higher than a zero………apparently I am completely ignorant of the Jewish mindset………but then too I am very baffled by the uproar going on in France over Israel’s defense of itself and/or its response to the aggression against it.  In fact, this apparent ignorance of mine is driving me to do some detail research into what is,  and or has been, going on with Israel and its neighbors over the past fifty plus years, in order than I might better understand these two points that are so dang baffling to me.
