CHANGES GOOD OR BAD December 1, 2010

  I often wonder if the changes that are being made in life are good or bad. I look back at a time when going to a library was a time when you could study or read in peace and quiet. It seems as if now a change has taken place and quiet is no longer being enforced.  Now I am being told that it is a community place where people, because they do so much for the community, are allowed to talk loud laugh and keep up all sort of noise. Decorate Christmas trees and hold just about any and every thing they want now in the library. As I now live in Palm Coast Florida I often wonder if all Libraries in all other states have sunk to this level. I remember when I lived in Ohio the library in Euclid as well as downtown Cleveland was a place of quiet even the computer section I can only hope that it is still the same.

 Now days here in Palm Coast, and Ormond beach they have the retired who evidently do not need money because they work for free and those who do need a job, that pays can not get one in a library, as long as the freebee are there . Their bills don’t get paid and they end up out on the street.  No wonder the economy is in such bad shape.  Every one is stuffing their own pockets, and other is suffering because the freebee takes the jobs that should go to those who need to work. It just like the government who when people donate to their campaign they in return give them bail out or government contract. The whole world seems to be crooked.

 They come in sick and spread their germs so that others end up sick. They are on Medicare so they don’t worry about paying medical bills. There are those who have no insurance and have to pay out of pocket, have no jobs so they cannot go to doctors for help, because they cannot afford to give an arm or leg for help. To me that is just wrong.

 That is just my opinion. What is your?


DOGS IN HOTEL October 15, 2010

How clean is it? Are people ignorant? Or is it that they just do not care about others?    I recently stayed at the La Quinta Inn in Port Orange, FL. The room in itself all in all was not bad. Once the air circulated the stuffiness was abated.  However there was something that made me itch all night, as it did not affect my daughter I can only assume that there was something in the hotel that I may have been very sensitive to.

The food being served for breakfast was not bad. What I consumed was fresh, and tasty. The problem, begin when a man walked into the food area with his dog. That is why I asked the questions above.  Common sense should have told the man that it was against the law to have his dog in the food area. If I had been from the board of health, or some other person there had been working for the board of health the hotel would have been fined.

I have to commend the front desk clerk who immediately stepped in and told the man that the dog could not be in the area. The man got mad but who cares. He may complain to the owner, but if the owners are in any way right they will give the clerk a commendation or a raise for doing his job.

People with animals should realize that just because they don’t mind eating dog hair and having animals around their food does not mean that every one wants the same thing. What you do in your own home is your business, but to bring it out in public is just wrong. If you like kissing your dogs in the mouth, have them eating off your plate’ that’s your business. Personally I think it is disgusting, and will not even eat in a person home that has dogs, or cats.

It seems as now day’s people can not take trips unless they take their pets with them. It was already bad enough that you can no longer sit on the grass, have picnics like we did years ago without ending up in dog mess, but even walking on the side walks has become dangerous as you may end up stepping in dog mess if you are not looking down where you are walking. They are sleeping in the hotel now and you end up sleeping in the rooms where they have slept and for those of you who maybe like me are very sensitive to the smells usually end up in one of those rooms.

Over the past year I have stayed in ten hotels, nine different ones. These hotel has been located in Georgia, Texas, Paris France, Washington State, Ohio, Main, and Florida. Out of all there are only three I would definitely recommend, and one I would semi recommend.

  1. The Quality Inn in Marysville, WA. That I almost missed out on because of staying in one in St. Augustine FL.
  2. The Hampton Inn in Beachwood Ohio
  3. The Fairfield Marriot in Palm Coast FL

The Simi recommendation would be the LaQuinta here in Port Orange FL. The one this article is about.

The bottom line is you people with your pets, try being respectful of other and the rules governing your pet in public. Don’t put them in baby carriage like so many that I see do in order to sneak them in to places that said no pets.

Laws and the people who make them March 23, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — barbierants @ 3:29 pm

In reading some of the comment concerning the Health care bill that was passed I could not help but see how enraged everybody is. Those for it and those against it. Those who want the states to intervene. I could not help but wonder if any of you know what your state is doing with other laws that are in effect in those states take for instance the real estate laws that they have written in the contract that you sign when you make a bid on a house. If you win that bid then you have to have the house inspected. Which is fine, it is the wording that is in the contract in statement 100 that causes a great deal of concern for me. If you decided that you do not want the house because there may be something seriously wrong with it then if the inspector has done any damage at all in his inspection then you have to pay for that damage. For example say the roof is rotten and the inspector falls through then you have to repair the part of the roof that he fell through. Hopefully he already has insurance to pay for any medical cost he may incur from his fall. If there is something wrong with the material that was used in the walls and he took a sample you have to pay to have that fixed. When I called them on that I was told that they would go after the inspector for any damage done but they refuse to put it in writing, or remove the wording in the contract that the buyer would be responsible for the damage.

So when you people stop and think about what your state want to do, try reading some of the laws they already have in effect. Everyone is out for themselves. Don’t think for one minutes those people who are fighting so hard to keep this health bill from become a law cares about you. they are looking out for themselves. and the other big business that sell these insurance polices. The big businesses that pays for them to be reelected. They want to keep their jobs and health insurance, These big business know that they will have to readjust their polices or lose some of their business the politician or the big business don’t care about you or your health. Wake up people this world as you know it is passing away. Your hatred, jealousy and bigotry will soon be a thing of the pass and so will all of you, and the big business, and politicians.


Honesty February 16, 2010

Honesty where has it gone to? I once believed you could trust almost everyone. Not just family, friends, and neighbors but businesses to. That may have come from being raised in a small town where people were honest and trust worthy. As I look at the world around me today I wonder where all that honesty went. Why insurance companies rip people off. It seems as if the things that you are required by law to have are the biggest rip off. Followed closely by the things that you really need. The prices go through the roof. No wonder crime and violence is on the rampage.

One would have to wonder why is it that the government is bailing out big business? All they are doing is hurting people. The Government would come out better giving a million dollars to each citizen and allowing them to spend and help the economy. We citizens would then be able to go to doctors who charge an arm and a leg just to spend five minutes to look at you. We would be able to buy proper food to feed our family. Food, by the way, that has sky rocketed in price. The cost is so high now that people have to make a choice between food or rent.

Where are all the honest folks? The ones who cared about the people not the dollar? Have they passed away and left their offspring who are greedy and money hungry? Who would kill their own for a dollar. Oh this sad sick world; when will it end?

What do you think about this world that we live in?

I heard once that there is no future without the past. Could this be true? Could this be why so many people are now searching for their past? Should we be satisfied with what we know? If we search and find out that our ancestors were murders, thieves, and haters, what effect will it have on us? In our search if we find that a lot of information has been destroyed would you wonder why? Could it be that the government wanted to shape the future of everyone? A future that would fit its mold of what people should really be like? What then are we leaving our children, our grandchildren, their grandchildren? Is it the government mold of what our past should be like, or what it really was like? Is the past of our forefathers a good one to have?

 Should someone else way of life be forced on others? In the past a way of life was forced on the Indians, so much so that their past was taken away from them, and they were given another nations of people ways of living. The Politician succeed in genocide their way of life.

 The Indians were no longer allowed to roam their land for food, to think for themselves, to believe in their God, to make or wear their own clothes, to live their lives the way they wanted to live. To learn in the way they had always learned. Instead the government molded them to be what they wanted them to be. They stripped them of their dignity, treated them lower than what they treated their livestock. All in the name of progress.

Progress at any cost seems to be okay for our government, they don’t mind stealing the land of peaceful people, murdering, or allowing the genocide of a nation of people, or their ways of life.


Obama Tired December 29, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — barbierants @ 6:25 pm

Julie Pace did a news article for the Associated Press. The article was entitle “BIG FIRST YEAR LEAVES OBAMA TIRED” While on-line I read it and then made a comment. In order for you to understand what I am posting you would have to go read the article and then some of the comment before you could ever began to answer my questions. I would not say read them all because there are so many of them and they are so full of hate that you may not wish to read them, as they come from ignorant people and you may not want to be associated with them. For the ones you do read answer the following question for me. 

 1.  Who do these people remind you of? 

They remind me of the person  History tried to make into a hero. But we all know that he was a BIGOTS, and a HATE MONGERS. 

 2.  Could these people who are posting these comments of hate be related to him? 

 Remember the General Custer, who set out to destroy a whole nation of people because they were different. He was a murder, of old men, women, children, and babies. He has been called a yellow-haired dog by many a name well deserved. It seem a shame that anyone would want to be related to such a man. In the end he received his just reward. He was killed at the little bighorn. 

 3. Could all these people be members of a long hate group who were called KKK? Whom I would say was also the offspring of the General, who ends up being the offspring of Satan the Devil. 

 Maybe they are all KKK that what they sound like anyway. If you read their comment, you would probably agree with me. 

 It is a sad day that there is still so much  hate in this world against people who are difference. Even sadder that the intelligent of people are worst than that of the stone ages. 


Holidays December 11, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — barbierants @ 12:53 pm

What are holiday’s? Who benefits from them? What they are is a time when people go crazy, with shopping, decorating, cooking, and visiting. Some visit people they have not seen in awhile taking gifts and receiving gifts. It is a time for wishing and hoping. Still for others it is a time for crying and sadness. Whereas for those with any sanity at all it is just another day in a long line of days of crime, hate, and remembrance of what is going to be and what has already passed.

There is nothing wrong with shopping, cooking, visiting; we all do those things at some point in our lives. Why then are holidays so crazy for some people? As for the ones who benefit they are the businesses. They advertise their merchandise way in advance of holidays. People stand in line even sleep in front of stores waiting to be first to grab certain products that are on sale and in limited amounts. They have been known to even kill people trying to get to these products.

Even your light company, gas company, transportation system reaps the benefit. Take a good look at your light bill look at how high it goes up with your decoration. Even those of us who do not put them up still suffer because our bills go up too.

When that one day is over and you are stuck with tons of bills don’t complain. Just know you were the crazy one, and the businesses that benefit from your craziness they were the smart ones.

Until next time Barbi Rants says think before you spend your hard earned money.
