Harry Most Likely Was Born On The Wrong Side Of The Blanket, He Should Never Have Been ‘His Royal Highness’ (HRH).

Yes, yes, yes, I have heard all the denials BUT my eyes don’t deceive me. When I see Harry I see his mother’s (i.e., Princess Diana’s) acknowledged boyfriend, James Hewitt. Google it. I am not the only one who believes it. Look at the above pictures. Look at him next to William. Do they look ANYTHING like each other. Just the color of the hair. Exact same color as James Hewitt.

Yes, of course, it would be very awkward for the Royal Family to admit to this — i.e., that he is illegitimate. This would have been unthinkable when he was ‘The Spare’ — i.e., replacement if something happened to his older brother. Now it doesn’t matter anymore given that his brother, William, has children of his own. The line of succession goes through them. Hence, why Harry is no longer the spare. Instead he is number 6 inline. Hence why he was already a MINOR royal before all this uncalled for fuss in 2020.

So, that is my take. I have always, narry an exception, claimed he was not of royal blood. So, I for one am glad that he will no longer have a royal title. As we Brits say: GRBR.

Original e-mail from ASUS demanding $24.75.


Final $0.00 bill once they realized that the game was up.

They are now saying that charged FedEx for the damage.

The ASUS (US) PC Support scam seems very well planned, executed, shameless and corrupt.

When they can’t get money from the customer they are making a claim against FedEx,

  1. Why didn’t they make the FedEx claim earlier and just tell us that FedEx was paying?
    …..
  2. Are they making FedEx claims even when the customer pays?
    ….

In our case we are 100% sure that there was NO Damage.

The 6-week old laptop was sent in because it was dead. Dead. Would not power up. That is what we wanted fixed.

If the case was truly damaged they could still have fixed the Windows Power Up issue and send us the laptop back — with the damage.

This scam unraveled for ASUS when I called their bluff and said “OK, so if you have pictures of our laptop being unboxed — showing damage — send it to me“. Our laptop had a lot of unique stickers on it. You can’t miss it. They realized that they had been caught out. They had NO pictures.

Our laptop was not damaged.

SCAM.

They making false FedEx claims as to be a crime — I would think. I, alas, can’t pursue that. Only FedEx can.

I will do my best to get FedEx to look into this. I will happily give FedEx all the evidence we have.Th….

Kia Sinclair, Founder Of N.H. ‘Free The Female Nipple’ Comments On U.S. Supreme Court Indecision.

by Anura Guruge



Click image to read background,
if you are unfamiliar with the case.


Kia Sinclair’s comments (via ‘e-mail’) on January 13, 2020.

“I am disappointed as well. The good news is this is only the court declining to review our case, it isn’t a ruling on its merits. It sets no precedent. It’s rare for SCOTUS to grant cert. We have other legal avenues we can down. Currently there are several cases around the issue of female toplessness around the country, so the fight is far from over.”


Kia Sinclair’s original explanation of her
goals for this movement
from July 2015.

There are quite a few posts on this blog about
Kia Sinclair and her
“Free the Female Nipple” N.H. movement.
Use this blog’s search function to locate them.


I got to know Kia Sinclair, a dynamic, eloquent, cerebral & committed, young lady in 2015 when she courageously started this movement. We collaborated quite a bit that Summer. That is how I got to know Kia. She is an impressive lady and I know she will prevail. Of that there can be no doubt or debate.

Check her out. She is a BIG name for the future.

U.S. Supreme Court, Unfairly, SNUBS The New Hampshire ‘Free The Nipple’ (Kia Sinclair et. al.) Appeal.

The February 8, 2019,
New Hampshire Supreme Court
Opinion on Kia Sinclair et. al.

Click to read my post from last year.


New Hampshire Supreme Court
ruling was gobbledygook.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. From the ‘Union Leader’ @ unionleader.com


This NH Supreme Court ruling upset me GREATLY.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s, extremely unfair & arbitrary snub, has me seeing red.

This is wrong very wrong.

We should not have this discrimination — especially not enforced, unilaterally, by a city.

Not sure what happens now. I guess the lower court, i.e., N.H. Supreme Court, ruling prevails. That is just NOT right.

I am sure Kia et. al. are looking at other legal options.

Maybe the new mayor, the Admirable Andrew Hosmer might look into this. He is a lawyer and has a calm, level head.

I was a big supporter of Kia Sinclair when she started ‘Free The Nipple‘. Then we found out that there were NO State Laws in NH that forbid the display of nipples. I thought, obviously incorrectly, ‘CASE CLOSED’. Kia Sinclair was right. I was wrong. Case was not closed. We have to continue to fight.

And I am back on the case. This has to end. As the photo below clearly shows I try to go topless most days during the NH Summer. I consider it a right. If I can go topless then Kia Sinclair should also be allowed to go topless.

This is so inane. So, New Hampshire.

Fairly Decent Article On ‘PAIN’ In The January 2020 Issue Of ‘National Geographic’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. January 2020 issue.


Click to ENLARGE.

The 2 most salient points made in the article.


I have covered this same ground in my book.

Click for more details.


Click to ENLARGE.

Just two relevant pages from my book.


This article is worth it JUST for this one CRITICAL message — said twice:

“Pain — in such cases — becomes the disease.”

“Their pain is not a symptom; it is a disease — one caused by a malfunctioning nervous system”.


That malfunctioning of the nervous system is ‘Central Pain Syndrome‘ (CPS) — the topic of my book.

So, I am delighted that this article HIGHLIGHTS this very crucial aspect of chronic pain — where pain itself is the disease.


The other key message in this article is that pain is felt (i.e., perceived), tolerated and handled by each person in a different way.

Some folks deal with pain better than others. Some can modulate their pain.

This is another topic dear to I. I talk about this in my ‘Central Pain’ book as well as in my books about ‘Brain Meditation’. Yes, you can teach yourself to handle pain — and do so better than others.


As is inevitable with all ‘National Geographic‘ articles there is a lot of ‘fluff’, ‘futures’ & ‘gratuitous color’. But, the key messages make up for that.

The author, who appears Indian, pussyfoots, shamelessly, around the opioid issue. Touches upon it multiple times BUT avoids taking the issue to its conclusion. NatG does not want to offend anyone!

The article also is way too generous when it comes to doctors. Again it tries not to offend anyone. So many doctors have NO CLUE when it comes to pain. I really do mean that. They are completely clueless.

But, if you can SKIM through this article. If nothing else you should learn that ‘pain can be THE disease — not just a symptom’.

Happy Holidays.

I Was Blatantly Racially Profiled By ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock (Concord)’ Today!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


I could NOT believe it. At registration, at the front, the receptionist asked me, point-blank: “Are you a U.S. citizen?”

Ah?

I had presented her my valid N.H. driver’s license WITH REAL ID (which states that I have been fully vetted) & my Humana Advantage card that showed that I was on MediCare. Moreover, I had been a registered patient there of 12-years! I was just there to get a pneumonia shot — by appointment, after having got my flu shot a few weeks ago.

They have never previously asked whether I was a U.S. citizen.

What does citizenship have to do with Dartmouth ‘bloody’ Hitchcock?

I asked her that. She just shrugged her shoulder.

This is NOT right.

I am NOT going to let this one pass.

This was the final straw with the bunch of clowns at Dartmouth ‘bloody’ Hitchcock — Concord.


They have screwed me by overcharging $1,600 (out-of-pocket) for a colonoscopy.

They nearly KILLED me by not giving me the treatment I needed.

They treated my daughter since she was born BUT thought she was a BOY when her gender was never in question.

That is it. I am DONE.

I have already reported them to the ACLU and Senator Maggie Hassan. And I have just started.

They can’t be allowed to carry on.

Bloody Dartmouth Bloody Hitchcock.

And they are NOT even ASSOCIATED with Dartmouth Hitchcock in Hanover. They have JUST bought the rights to use the name. You didn’t know that did you?

ASUS (US) PC Support, Caught, Red-Handed, With Photographic Proof, Of Trying To Cheat Us!

by Anura Guruge


Pictures sent by ASUS PC support in November 2019 CLAIMING
‘Customer Induced Damage’ (CID) on our PC
and demanding $24.75 to honor the warranty and fix the PC.

Click to ENLARGE.


Actual pictures of our PC, an ASUS VivoBook F510UA,
after they returned it, a couple of days ago, FIXED
and at NO CHARGE.

Notice that even the color is different. Notice missing ‘foot pad’.

Click to ENLARGE.


Notice, NOT the same!


Original e-mail from ASUS demanding $24.75.


Final $0.00 bill once they realized that the game was up.
Now they are trying to play ‘nicey-nice’ HOPING that we will keep quiet.

NO CHANCE! 

Click to ENLARGE.


So, let me take you through the sequence of events — in pithy bullet form fashion.

  1. 2-month old, ASUS VivoBook FS10UA, bought for 19-year old daughter, for College, dies. She gets an RMA and sends it to ASUS (US) PC support.
  2. She gets an e-mail (above) with two pictures and a claim that it was ‘Customer Induced Damage’ (CID), that the warranty has been invalidated, and that we need to pay $24.75 to have it fixed.
    ….
  3. We are SURE that there was NO DAMAGE when we sent it in.
    ….
  4. I do the post below (November 21, 2019). I repost it on Facebook & Twitter and tag ASUS.
    ASUS, on Facebook, responds, gives me this phone number, 855-714-0471, and tells me to call them.
    That was on November 22, 2019.
    I call.They tell me that PC support will have pictures of our PC being unboxed and that these pictures will show the ‘Customer Induced Damage’ (CID).
    They say they can send me the pictures. I ask them to do so because by then we had worked out that we had stickers on our PC that would show us whether this was our PC or not.
    They said I should have the pictures by November 25, 2019.
    …….
  5. THEY NEVER SENT THE PICTURES.….

  6. They contacted my daughter and said that they are going to fix it and return it for FREE. SMILE.
    ….
  7. Last Friday, December 13, 2019, nearly a month since this all started, the PC arrived via FedEx. NO CHARGE.
    ….
  8. We checked the PC against the two CID pictures they had sent us.
    ….
  9. DID NOT MATCH. Their pictures were of some other PC.
    ……..
  10. This was a TOTAL SCAM on their part.….

  11. When they realized that their game was up they gave up and tried to play nice.
    ….
  12. That is NOT going to work.
    ….
  13. We did a LOT of research. This SCAM has been perpetrated on many others. We want to make sure that this does NOT happen again.
  14. I have already contacted ASUS FB — who appear to be decent and responsive.
    ….
  15. We will post this wherever and we will contact as many pertinent authorities as we can.
    ….
  16. This has to STOP...
    ……
  17. ASUS has to be held accountable.
    ….

  18. ASUS has to compensate ALL those it has scammed.
    ….
