I Am Aghast & Distressed That A ‘Jaguar’ Was Involved In Harming These Innocent Protestors.

I heard that a Jaguar was involved & I honestly thought I had misheard that. I had to go look it up.

A Jaguar. More to the point a Jaguar driver — a Jaguar owner. I am HOPING that it was stolen.

Jaguar owners are supposed to be classy. We have taste. We have acumen. We are NOT stupid. That is why we buy & drive a Jaguar.

I have tried to find out who this idiot was. I have not succeeded. Appears very little is known about him. But, I am keeping tabs on him. We can’t have any riff raff driving Jaguars. Riff raff is expected to drive German cars.

Archbishop Viganò’s Praise For Trump Does Not Have The Backing Of Church, Pope Or Even Most Bishops!

by Anura Guruge


Click to access this article. Google for more.


Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò (79) has been in RETIREMENT since January 2016. He is NOT a cardinal & he is no longer a part of the Vatican bureaucracy.

Actually he is an OUTCAST as far as the Pope & the mainline Church is concerned. A pariah. A gadfly.

He has no standing or say in what the Vatican says, thinks or does. I know that I have more standing at the Vatican than does he — & I am a confirmed, born-again HEATHEN!

So, an endorsement from Viganò is pretty meaningless. It could even be a negative. An impediment.

Trump, obviously, has no clue about the Catholic Church, its workings & its sacrosanct politics. If he did he would have ignored anything that Viganò said.

LoL.

The Gross Incompetence Of The ‘Alton Central School’ (ACS) Administration Is Again ‘Up In Lights’.

by Anura Guruge



By all means go check the original at Vimeo.


Yes, this is the latest incident of BULLYING by ACS — by ACS Administration (not the kids).

Making fun of Teischan YET AGAIN!

Bullying — like racism — comes in many shades.

Well, let them have their petty satisfaction.

A shameless crew. All of them, led by their shameless Superintendent & grossly shameless Principal — a man very short on principle.

C’est la vie.

We were NOT at the graduation. As far as we are concerned she did NOT graduate from ACS. She was homeschooled.

Teischan hates that place.

There has been a ‘Guruge’ at that school for 13-years & the buggers still PRETEND that they don’t know what our name is.

They CANNOT — they CANNOT — hide by saying this is a NEW one off issue.

Let me share this e-mail from 3-years ago.

Amazon Prime Video REWIND/FF On The Roku APP Just Got Worse!

by Anura Guruge



If you use the Roku Prime Video APP to watch movies you will know exactly what I am talking about.

Do a Google on “prime video rewind on Roku“.

Basically it is IMPOSSIBLE to control REWIND or FF. It just goes haywire. You can’t just skip a few seconds back or forward.

Well, Amazon did something today.

It made it EVEN worse! Yep, no granularity whatsoever. Just all the way back, 10 minutes at a time or forward 20-minutes.

So, STUPID.

COVID-19: Did You Know That Walmart Has Closed Its Auto Centers?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


I had NO idea that Walmart had done this.

Went to the Rochester (N.H.) Walmart Auto Center yesterday to try & get the a/c on our Nissan Quest topped up. It was CLOSED. Bunch of associates lounging around taking great glee in telling me they are closed.

How does that make sense?

Car repair was deemed ‘essential’ from the start. Other places are open.

I did some thinking. Yes, to be on the safe side they would need to disinfect the insides of the cars before they get in them. I can see that. But, other places do, & Walmart, more so than others, should be capable of taking that step in their stride.

I am disappointed — but Walmart disappoints I often.

I know that a lot of people rely on Walmart for their car care because they tend to be affordable.

Not right.

No big deal for us. I will take it to another local shop.

Just wanted to make sure you knew about this.

Roku Has To Be Held Complicit In This ‘CaliGeeks’ Activation Scam.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access this article. Google for more.


I have had a Roku for 5-years. I use it everyday. I am BIG Roku fan — and I am also a very happy Roku shareholder. SMILE.

But, this scam, which has been going on for 2-years or more, does not sit well with I.

Roku has to be complicit. Plain & simple as that.

Roku could take steps to fix it.

Roku could put a BIG banner on the activation screen saying “NO ACTIVATION FEES”.

Roku could provide a hotline for those that are asked to pay.

Roku should be held responsible.

This is beneath Roku.

I am disappointed. I hope Roku fixes this ASAP.

‘Jardiance’ TV Commercials For Type II Diabetes Featuring An OBESE Guy Is Criminal!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Link to video below.


Click image to access the TV commercial video.


Over the last few days I have not been able to avoid this Jardiance ad — and it INFURIATES I.

Why?

Isn’t it obvious?

This ad is bloody criminal.

This FAT guy, ‘Dimitri’, needs to LOSE weight — not take a drug.

Plain & simple as that.

If he lost 80 pounds he wouldn’t need Jardiance.

No mention at all that he needs to stop pigging out, exercise more & lose 80 pounds.

Annoys me intensely. It is criminal.

We should NOT be encouraging bad behavior & saying it is OK to be obese … we have a magic, EXPENSIVE pill for YOU.


Yes, there was a Trulicity commercial too — and I objected.

Click to access my post.


Diabetes is something I live with every day. The reason I exercise and watch my diet (though not that successfully of late) is for my diabetes.

Then I see these bloody ads.

Every SINGLE man shown is very overweight if not obese. Of course they are going to be diabetic. Obeseness is a leading cause for diabetes.

Lose 80 pounds. It can be done.

How Will Donald Trump Exact His Anger On POOR Personal Valet That Caught The Chinese Virus?

by Anura Guruge



You know he is MAD. Hopping mad.

The audacity of the bloody valet. Catching the Chinese virus.

You know that there will be NO EMPATHY; certainly NO SYMPATHY.

Trump will just want his pound of flesh.

You know that the poor valet will NEVER set foot in the White House again. You know that … right?

I am willing to bet that Trump will have him Court Martialed! I kid you not.

I feel so bad for the POOR valet. His life is TOAST.

Sri Lanka’s Draconian COVID-19 Lockdown & Curfew — Justifiable Or Overkill?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE


Click to ENLARGE. Headline from today — PLUS two of MY posts re. Sri Lanka & China. Just search for them on the block. Shouldn’t be hard to find.


Yes, of course, absolutely bloody brilliant. WOW. Who would have thought.

Just 7 deaths — though, of course, even ONE death is too much.

They, especially the government & health professionals deserve much kudos & applause for this superhuman achievement.

Left the developed countries in the dust by quite a FEW orders of magnitude.

Yes, the numbers may not be fully accurate. But, I doubt whether, worst case, it is off by much more than say 1/100th. So, maybe 64,900 cases & 700 deaths. That is still absurdly low.


Until last night, when a cousin living in Sri Lanka, who happens to be a doctor, told me the details, I was NOT aware of the draconian lockdown & curfew.

They shut down all ‘ports’ — inbound & outbound. Not just passengers, goods as well.

It has been FORTRESS SRI LANKA for over a month.

They sure managed to keep the virus in check. BRAVO.


But, but, but … was it worth it?

At WHAT a huge cost?

I am sure that they will study this at Harvard, in years to come, as a Case Study. Was it the right thing to do?

Yes, when they started the lockdown, they, obviously, did not know what the infection & death rates were going to be.


But, the unintended consequences! WOW.

It, of course, has decimated the economy and the economy was already in BAD SHAPE following the tourist slump post the Easter 2019 ‘incident’.

People will DIE because of poverty!

This is sad. This is BAD.

Yes, of course, this being Sri Lanka there is dirty politics involved!

And China.

China will gain even more control.

All in all, I do not think this is good.

But, I am NOT an expert and I have no skin in the game.
