It's about fucking time! Back when people still cared about school shootings, they held rallies in every city a shooting occurred using that as a way to promote their advocacy for putting a gun in the hand of every American citizen. How many deaths have occurred in this country because of these hate pedaling monsters in the name of selling some guns?
What has the NRA done that is hate pedaling?

The person may not have actually been a trump supporter, but I feel like everyone is acting out the way they are because of influences spearheaded by Trump himself. The general public are just so much more rude than they used to be. Yesterday, I was on the bus and some lady rudely told this guy to get out of her face when all he was doing was standing there like the rest of us who weren't sitting because there wasn't enough room. He wasn't even close to her but the guy was black and the girl was white. I'm not saying it was a race thing, but I remember a time when people wouldn't just deliberately try to start shit for no reason every chance they got. I mean people can say and think what they want, but that son-of-a-bitch has set off a chain reaction that's going to turn everyone against each other eventually.

I went to the dentist today. I already had a feeling I was going to be told my top teeth needed to be pulled and I needed dentures, but I didn't expect the dentist to only look at the x-rays rather than even examine me before coming to the sudden determination that every tooth in my head should be pulled all in one setting by an oral surgeon. He even ignored me telling him about some pain I was having. He tried to say that I needed two completely different sets of Dentures, one would cost me $900 and another would be a few thousand dollars. I caught on very quickly what kind of a bullshit tick and leech business this really was. I think my bottom teeth could be saved and fixed, but the guy was so quick to throw these assumptions at me it made me feel like they were just trying to do a necessary shit to me for money. He even went as far as to say to me, we will be seeing a lot of you. What a bunch of assholes.

I know I have gum disease and it's causing my teeth to degrade and even caused a few to fall out. I'm not sure what's causing it but I do want to get a second opinion before making any rash decisions. If anything, I'd like to get the top teeth done first and then wait for the bottom teeth. I just can't help but feel like these guys were so quick to come to that decision based on how much money they could get out of me. I mean it is still a business after all.

Well I'm thinking maybe he just knew right off the bat from the x-rays that you were in trouble. And any pain is probably from what he saw in the x-rays and he knew it without having to look in. But yeah, definitely get a second opinion. That does seem expensive but it is very expensive in Canada too, especially if you dont have dental coverage. Which I don't....

It certainly has been windy and stormy here lately. I'm sort of looking forward to the summer this year. Honestly tired of all this cold weather now. I need the heat and loved to be outside again. There's a few things I'd like to do this summer and I'm looking forward to it. Sort of wanting to possibly get a new bike or start yoga this summer. I'd love to become more active outside and do something, instead of just laying around, haha!

It's windy all the way over here on the opposite side of the country from Florida. Being here in the Vegas Valley it seems like we stay bombarded with high wind bouncing off of the surrounding mountains. Just like in big cities like New York where you can smell a wonderful blend of various Asian Foods and pizza and such, you can smell the same in Vegas in any given area at times when the wind is blowing. There were a few late nights in February that got downright miserable at how cold and strong the wind was. What part of Florida are you in?

Has anyone seen that newer commercial on television where the morbidly obese man is telling the story about a doctor who was running a marathon and came up on a man having a heart attack who is also running the marathon and she saved his life? The guy telling the story is the one who had the heart attack.

I know this makes me, "that guy", but what the hell did the guy expect? Coming from someone who used to be a morbidly obese man, you don't do that shit when you are morbidly obese!
