Oh  my goodness. So we are really just having problems with the stupid cable provider.

Well, as you will recall in a previous post about my electric bill being stupid high because of my DVR box, now I have something new to complain about.  So last week I tried to get on the internet. The internet is hooked up through the cable company Comcast Xfinity.  Trent chatted it up with the lady on the phone and she said,” your box is not receiving the signal that I am trying to send to you.  You will need to take it to our of our convienent locations and switch it out for a new one.”

Ugh, okay, so after work the next day Trent and I head over to this super convient location that is conviently located 35 minutes away from the house.  This convient location is also located in a bad neighborhood.  So bad that the Comcast location actually has graffti on it, or as some people call it “local art”.  As we park the car and hope no one mugs us on the daylight, we walk in to a seccurity guard on duty. The place is lined with bullet proof glass for the ladies behind the counter.  Safety is obviously not only a concern for me, but also the employees at this convient location.  We put our little box into the bullet proof cage and close the door before she is able to open her door and recieve it. So we get a new box from the lady (who is actually very nice and helpful despite her living in a bullet proof cage).

We take our new box home, plug it in and it still refuses to work. We get on the online chat center and we are told that box needs to be registered and set up. We say okay, come and set it up. They say “No, problem Jenna.  There will be a $49.99 service fee for the set up.”  I respond, “It was your shotty equipment that made me have to get a new one in the first place. I did the work of driving to your convient location and living through it to get the new box.  You can come service your box for free.”  They responded that that was not how it worked. I responded with, I no longer want my internet service then.  They gave me an number to call which I got to wait on hold for 20 minutes for, than once I got a rep I was put on hold again throughout the phone call. UGH. NO THANK YOU!

So, then a few days later I decided to catch up on some TV that I have missed.  I go to TV on Demand only to find an Error 7.  I go to online chat (because I have a work computer and I am allowed to use for personal use) and chat it up with my online rep.  She tells me once again that “your box is not receiving my signal” I respond “You have got to be kidding me. I just risked my life to get a new internet box that I ended up canceling service on.  I am not going back to risk my life for TV on Demand”  She than explained that I could have a service tech come out for the convient price of …… (do you know what that price is?)  YES! $49.99.  Again I had to explain how I did not understand how I was being charged for their product that does not work.  It makes NO SENSE!!!! I am already paying to use their product, I did not break it, there are no wires missing, I did nothing to it.  They need to fix it because their prices to begin with are already to freaking high! Anyway, she explained that those were my options. I explained “I have lived without cable for 10+ years,  I am moving in 2 weeks and I do not think I will be getting cable again.  I never had this much problem with my rabbit ears and the programs were FREE” I told her “I would drive into the hood to drop off my boxes in the begining of August as long as I make it through the ghetto without being shot at or robbed of their shotty cable/internet boxes” She said she “understood” HAHAHA! Poor thing. 

Either way, I will not be paying for cable again.  It is stupid when I really watch ABC, NBC, and FOX anyhow.

These are NOT my words. They come from another website on in the message board section. I do not want to give the website name because people will think I am crazy and over the top. Hahaha.

The person who wrote this is MrAdamo: When he is talking about a video he is referring to the Kanye West video for the magazine 25 (apparently a fashion mag). In the video there is nudity and degigation of sex in the sickest ways.

After reading through the comments here; I can see there are some arguments over this one, so lets look at how and why it ties into the agenda. This type of stuff is the core of the culture war.

It’s all about the debasement of the youth. As you say, it’s not ‘new’ or ‘avant-garde’ or truly ‘shocking’ in any way at all – but it is definitely an agenda. The agenda being to reduce human identity down to that of a primitive animal, by taking sex – and mixing it up with violence, perversion, gore, and all forms of debasement – so that it ALL becomes one big mush.. One concept.

No limits, no boundaries, no privacy, no sentiment, no emotion, no tenderness, no discretion, no dignity, no restraint, no rules, no morality – just an animalistic free for all where anything goes. Every sexual possibility and every human impulse, from the sensual to the violent, from the tame to the horrific – is to become ONE. Having sex with an animal will be the same as doing it with a person. Pedophilia and BDSM will be as casual as eating a sandwich. Look at what all these fanatical academics are talking about – sex and morality are relative concepts. You can do whatever you want because it’s all just preferences and points of view. Monogamous relationships are a thing of the past, they’re just a social habit with no real meaning or purpose.

This is the new ‘norm’ that we’ve all to adopt.

Bertrand Russell started this whole train of thought up in the 1920′s, where his experimental schools aimed to get pre-pubescent children having intergenerational sex on a constant basis, as well as all other forms of sex. They theorized that if they could overload their minds with sex at a very young age; it would completely desensitize them to the point where it no longer had any emotional impact on them. They would train them to view the sexual act in the same way as going to the bathroom, so that it would not make them feel close to a sexual partner, and would have no emotional resonance for them at all. They would then be highly promiscuous throughout their adult lives, placing no value on the sexual act – leaving them unable to bond or maintain stable relationships. They were only capable of having brief sexual encounters, and thus had no loyalty to a partner, a family, or any particular social values.

This experiment was immensely successful, and so they decided that this was the way to break up the family unit and stop people from having children. They would use this same basic technique on the rest of society, by normalizing promiscuity and setting it up as the model for people to adopt. They started promoting sex to the young, and portrayed multiple partners and casual affairs as the standard lifestyle choice. With this came the promotion of pornography and deviant forms of sex, which are gradually infiltrating all areas of society, in order to break down the culture and degrade the male-female relationship.

Freudian psychology basically proved that if a person’s sexuality was dragged down to the most base level, their identity would go with it. If you took the meaning out of sex, then you took the meaning out of life. This is how our minds work. If you can take the most potent, intimate and meaningful act in life, and drag it down to the level of a crude interaction with no boundaries and no discretion – you are removing all the dignity within an individual, along with their ability to see the higher spiritual meanings in life. They begin to see themselves and others as animals with no value, and so they no longer see morality and discretion as having any value. Concepts like right and wrong no longer have any real meaning to them, and so they fall quickly into a lifestyle of hedonism and promiscuity.

Once you’ve acclimated an entire generation to an ‘anything goes’ culture of rampant sexual debasement and complete nihilism, a society can easily be conquered. Once people have become so degraded that they are no longer shocked or offended by anything, then they will have no reason to object to anything. Once all of their allegiances have been taken away, they will have nothing to stand up and fight for. Once all their dignity is gone, they will have no standards or personal boundaries to protect. When a society reaches this level of dysfunction, and all the previous social structures have been broken down – the government reigns supreme. Without the family unit or any form of guiding principals in society; there is nothing left to stop it from taking over completely and becoming the sole authority in people’s lives.

This is exactly what Huxley talked about in ‘Brave New World’. People wont mind having their lives micro-managed by a scientific government, because there will be so much sex, drugs and entertainment that they wont care about anything else. Anything that gave people a reason to be in charge of their own lives, and to live by their own morals and standards – will be gone. The generation growing up today have already been trained to accept this kind of existence, and will have no problem giving up their sovereignty to the state.

This is where it’s all going, and this is ultimately what this type of imagery is about. Despite the higher, esoteric connection between sex and religion – the target audience for this video is not supposed to interpret it that way. The video is just taking occult/religious imagery and mixing it up with deviant forms of sex, in an attempt to break down more moral and ethical boundaries in the audience. It’s promoting all kinds of weird, dark imagery and linking it with sexuality, so that people develop subconscious associations between sex and the ‘extreme’. This is what sex is ultimately to become; something without limits, without discretion, and without any real spiritual connotations. These images are designed to desensitize people to a new form of imagery which blurs the line between the sexual and the morbid, so that these two concepts ultimately become ONE.

If you can reduce human sexuality to the lowest possible level, people will put up no resistance to your agenda. That’s why they’re doing it.

Okay, so we have PSE&G for our electric and since we have started receiving bills, they have been a bit on the high side.  The first one was $200+  The second one was $400+ .  When I saw that is was $400 I almost died.  Like literally, I almost fainted. I called them up and they said “Whoa, that does seem a bit high, we will put your account on hold for the moment, and when your normal reader comes out we will get a new reading for next month.  I thought, Oh great!  Finally, I just need my regular reader. The third bill comes and It is almost $800 dollars.  Yes you are reading that correct.  $800 bucks for an apartment that I send 3 hours a night awake in and 9 hours sleeping in.  I am gone from 5:15am till roughly about 5:30 to 6:00pm.  We have a tv, computer, cable, box fan, lights.  That is about it.  My apartment is about 790sqft.  I mean how are two people who are barely home using that much?  We do not turn on the AC until we go to bed at night, even on the weekends when we are home.  We do not use it until we go to sleep, simple as that.

So I called up the company again and complained.  I explained all of the above and the guy on the phone said. Sorry, but you owe that.  *UGH*.  Are you freaking kidding me. I mean I must be on a game show right?  I HAVE TO BE ON A GAME SHOW.  Ugh,  Well, since we had to pay up I started turning off every light every time, no exceptions. I looked up how much my freaking box fan is costing me (at most $25 bucks).. that is do able.  I looked up how much my stupid Belkin power strip costs me…. it is not supposed to cost me anything. Then I have this idea to look up my cable box.  My stupid comcast cable box and I find out that my cable box uses 2.88KW per hour. I looked up how much a KW costs. .23cent an hour.. Oh ok not bad. Well that ends up being $400 bucks a month if you leave yours on 24/7 like we do.  We turn off the TV but Trent has hunting shows that he wants to DVR while we are sleeping and we just don’t turn it off (It is not his fault.. when he is not DVRing something we don’t turn it off either).   So this stupid Comcast box, that barely works as it is, is sucking my money out of my wallet faster than I can even stand it. I feel like puking…. This is my rant.

I am going to go cry now.

Oh my gosh, so while at home we were some busy bees!   We got there the day before July 4th.  We got up had our coffee on the porch in the back yard and the family started to arrive. 

Image

In case you were wondering. Grandma made it!  It was a bit hot out for her, so she did not hang outside long, but she still showed up and we had some laughs.  We tried to play a game, but no one was good at it… so we stopped and all went swimming instead.

Later in the day Trent said he wanted a fire for the smell.  Now I will tell you right now that it was already 97 degrees out. Image

Here is a pic of him creating that fire.  Notice no one is sitting under the canopy because the heat from the fire got a little out of control.  After dark dad and Trent lit off some wonderful fireworks and we had a good time just chillen in the backyard.  The next day, the power went out in the whole neighborhood.  It happened at 4:30am and this was the day that mom and I had to do some cooking for their party the next day.  I prayed that God just let us have power until the party was over.  We had power and no one else in the neighborhood did!  God does do miracles people!  It was simply amazing. 

So the next day we go to my cousins house for the party. Image

Here is a pic of everyone in my family waiting for people to show up.  We sat in the shade under the tree because believe it or not, it was cooler there than in the tent. Hahaha!  After a while I got bored and started a game of horse with Trent and a couple friends. 

Image

We got creative and started taking pics of us “dunking” .  Needless to say the lowered the hoop for me. Just look at that great form!!

Next day the power went out, for a full 24 hours. So we took to Bob Evans for some food. 

Image

Mom and Dad waitin for the food to come. YUMMM. Pancakes from Bob’s are delish! MMm MM MM.  Later in the day we visited my other grandma and went to my favorite place Ruggero’s. I go there for a chicken salad and the bread.  Image

Yumm that bread is delish!  After we ate, we went back to grandma’s. I finished my laundry and we went to Frankenmuth to go to a music fest that they have their every Sunday night at 7:00pm.  

Image

On the way there, mom and I took a little nap.  I am laying on a pillow and my mom has perfected sleeping in the sitting position. 

Image

We are now awake and enjoying a little Frankie Valley and the four seasons.  It was actually horrible. But we still had a good time.  Because there was no reason so go home and stare at one another in the dark, we decided to grab a beer and the Frankenmuth Brewery. 

Image

Dad is telling a story and Mom is laughing hysterically.  Kind of how the whole trip was.  Just a good time all around. 

We have reached our final day and I spent it in the pool, after I helped my mom clean out her closet and dad helped dad disassemble the furniture.  Here our the last pics of me at my home. 

Image

Just look at our faces.. filled with joy and love. HAHAHA. SO funny. 

ImageHere is the real pic. Much better. 

Image

Just hanging around……

ImageThe last pic of me with my mom and dad at the house I grew up in since I was 10 😦  It is just a house but it has helped make me…… (look to the next pic)

ImageHOW FUNNY RIGHT!!!!

That is the trip though.  Nothing to exciting but as you can see, a lot of memories were made once more. Now on to the Florida house… my parents move July 25th!!!

So, today I was doing a little reading and I found out that the USA uniforms for the Olympics are made in China!  Does this make any sense whatsoever?  Where is the pride in American workmenship? 

The Olympics is all about competing with other countries to see who has the strongest and the fastest.  Why would we not wear something our contry made to let our team know we support them from the headband in their hair to the socks on their feet?  What could be more American than that?!

If you are as upset about this as I am, please feel free to e-mail them media@usoc.org.  You can also go to thier webpage and go to the “contact us” link and you will find a list of phone numbers there as well.

 

Hope you all had a great 4th of July!
