"If you like your insurance, you'll be able to keep your insurance. If you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor". Remember those words? YOUR president said those words in five, count them FIVE SEPARATE SPEECHES. And each time HE LIED! HE KNEW HE WAS LYING! HE LIED WITH A STRAIGHT FACE!

One year ago on October 30, 2012, I moved into my new store at 8219 La Mesa Boulevard. La Mesa Van and Storage brought the entire contents of my previous location and unloaded it all into this cherished space on the day before Halloween. One year has passed! It’s impossible to believe.

Now, I know many of you will have no idea of what I speak when I refer to George Orwell's tome, "1984". A few perhaps but I would submit that many or most just do not. The terms, "Owellian", "1984", or reference to, "Winston Smith", no, I suspect it just flies right over your heads. A few, however, will understand the references and images will instantly form in minds relating events of today with those so vividly…Continue

Almost daily we are faced with and forced to deal with the destruction of a nation, its economics, its medical care, its unemployment, its upward spiraling taxation, its upward spiraling prices, its conspiratorial coverups and concealment, its bald faced lies to Congress and as well as the public. The Administration, not just the president but the entire administration, from all apparent evidence and appearance, seems to be in a death spiral of vast destruction. Not…Continue

Many definitions exist for a bully. Each person may actually have their own. We are currently being shocked and inundated daily with constant and never ending reports of bullying about the country as though it is a relatively recent phenomenon. People wail and wring their hands when their child is bullied and when, as it seems to be more frequent these days, a recipient, generally a young teenager, actually kills…Continue
