DAMN GAS STATIONS = WTF is with this charging me 6 cents more per gallon to use a credit card? It is against CT (and MA & NY) law to "add a surcharge for the use of a credit card over cash or check." BUT, per CT Statutes 42-133ff, it is not ILLEGAL to give discounts for cash by the buyer? WTF? So I get a discount at the STOP & SHOP for buying milk with cash?? Goddamn OIL PATCH.DAMN GAS STATIONS = WTF is with this charging me 6 cents more per gallon to use a credit card? www.carladdisonswanson.com

REUNIONS = My deceased brother's class just had their 50TH REUNION and once again, they continue with their phony baloney memorials to those dead. My CLASS publishes an ongoing list of those gone. I have nothing against memorials but when half the class didn't talk or even acknowledge many on the list WHILE they were IN high school, I find it fake and pretentious to hail them as brethren . . . a trait we despised in our own parents. WTF? www.carladdisonswanson.com

NATION'S PAST-TIME = The METS - BRAVES game tonight decided to CLOCK the amount of time spent with batters stepping out of the BATTER'S BOX. 23.8 MINUTES !!!! wasted as we watched players readjust their batting gloves, scratch their crotch and other unworthy wastes of our time. ENFORCE the MLB rule: 602B clearly states a batter may not, arbitrarily, remove himself from said box. PLAY BALL!!!!! www.carladdisonswanson.com

POLITICAL EMAILS = Lordy, lordy, gave some money to HILLARY and the Democratic Party sends me 50 emails a day telling me their woes. I am not sure how Speaker of the House BONER's lawsuit requires more of my money? WTF? I have worked every campaign since 1972, bug off! STOP IT already with the money grubbing spiels.www.carladdisonswanson.com

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL SYNDROME = WTF? Indeed, such symptoms include lack of energy, sore muscles, rapid heart beat, general tiredness and upset stomach. Sounds like post-coitus syndrome for a BOOMER? I knew of one fellow 3rd grader, back in the Stone AGE, who got so nervous she couldn't take tests. The teachers fell for it foot, line and sinker. Thought it was the best con going. If you think school is bad, wait until you have to work! www.carladdisonswanson.com

MEDICAL MALFEASANCE = If yesterday's debacle with my JAMMIE'S "NO OBAMACARE" DOCTOR wasn't enough, today was equally as bad as I went to my family doctor to have wax removed from my big ears, irritated by my daily swim. When I called, I told them "if I am going to need a Ear, Nose & Throat specialist, let me know now." Nope, we can do it. Well, they couldn't, giving me a OTC drug to loosen the wax! WTF? And who wants tort reform? www.carladdisonswanson.com

ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE = A great fundraising effort with close to 31 million$ going to the ALS ASSOCIATION. But some skeptics, like me, want to know where the BUCKS GO? There are 30,000 ALS victims in the USA and it is expected 19% of funds raised will go to them. The REST? Committees "will determine who receives the research funds." There is no cure for ALS and recent advances have failed. Many of these charities "farm out" all their administrative/fund raising functions while the executives make TOP DOLLAR. ME? I would rather find an ALS patient and help them individually than have a bucket of cold water on my head. WTF?www.carladdisonswanson.com

MONEY GRUBBING DOCTORS = If it is not bad enough the greedy doctors in the 80's caused much of the overbilling in today's health world, the doctor my Jammie saw today took the cake. Big signs all over the place refusing all ACA INSURANCE and AARP MEDICARE. Then we wait 20 minutes while he has a staff meeting. My first question: Why no Obamacare coverage? He walked out. Some professional. FUCK HIM.www.carladdisonswanson.com

ELLIS ISLAND = Purchased from the state of New York in 1808 and opening in 1892, the tiny island, next to our Statue of Liberty, became the first home to 12 million IMMIGRANTS from its opening to 1954. FOUR out of TEN of us can trace our ancestry to immigrants landing at Ellis. Average fare? 12 bucks for nearly a month of horrid conditions traveling across the Atlantic to find HOPE in the good ole USA. What happened?www.carladdisonswanson.com
