$2.22


$2.22

Well, today kind of blows.  A great weekend ( check out the Kindle review blog on one I read ) but coming back it all went down hill as Monday’s are wont to do.  After all last week a bit on the cold side ( 17/45 ) and mostly clouds, Sunday was nice and sunny.  Today, after an hour or so, the clouds rolled back in.  I get friggin depressed without sun and I can’t see why the powers that be don’t stage a mass dirty suicide bomb up in Seattle because if there is one place we can all understand wanting to kill ourselves it is in cloudy and rainy coastal northwest.  It sure would be more believable than two normal teenager suddenly going stupid with a bomb at a marathon.  I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to Boston ( because, hey, those Yankee whores can bite me ) but it did seem a little strange that the cops were THAT efficient.  Even without a giant conspiracy theory, it is real easy to believe that the cops just picked the first Muslim looking face they didn’t like, then shoot the first to silence him and kick the second’s head enough with their jack boots that he won’t be anything except vegetable puree.  Case closed, the sheeple cheer their Federal oppressors as the hero’s.  So, really nothing to talk about there.  Same old same old false flag.  I already covered the gold conspiracy when the Dutch bank refused to pay depositors the gold they were owed.  Same old same old financial manipulation.

*

So what to talk about today?  I don’t remember who I insulted last, females or geriatrics, but today I’ll go with old crusty bastards, just because I’m feeling mean and bored.  If you’ve been keeping up with these things, Nevada as a state is Number One!  Number one unemployment and foreclosures and underwater homes ( hard to believe Cali isn’t beating us on some of those- my theory is that they actually have beat us but the Feds are massaging the numbers because as California used to be something like the ninth largest economy in the world, to admit they are going down hill paints a bleak picture to the herd ).  Gambling revenues, with a few up and down swings, is generally down pretty much on a constant basis.  So the casinos are feeling the pain ( even as the state, immigrating idiot Californians who couldn’t even get elected over there where the only requirement is to promise free crap-look at Pelosi, continues to try to raise taxes on them ) and doing stupid crap to cope.  The last one I worked at kept taking away the locals comps one by one, becoming more and more stingy with prizes, until they were all gone.  The locals WERE the customers as tourists went other places.  At first I thought they were hopeless idiots but it just turned out they were leading the pack.  All casinos are getting tight fisted.

Locally, I’ve now lost my $7.77 dinner.  The steak was tough but with all the side dishes it was a filling meal for a growing boy.  Now they are $8.99 and I won’t buy it anymore.  And the casino floor is worse.  If you don’t bet a quarter at a time, on the penny slots, you don’t get a free drink.  The whole purpose of free drinks is to get you to spend more money, and the casino’s wouldn’t have done it for sixty years or so if it didn’t work.  The purpose of cheap meals was to drag you into the casino in the first place.  Now, I understand their very survival is at stake, and I understand more than likely more people than not were eating and then not gambling.  And I know the crackheads try to get free drinks betting a penny at a time ( we used to impose the quarter rule only at night to chase them back into the cold ).  I understand all this and I don’t know if I’d have any better solution.  But the one class of customers who ain’t being turned away are the Seniors.  They still qualify for a $2.22 breakfast and they get weekly free play to lure them in.  How old is a casino senior?  Fifty.  That’s it.  And I think I see their reasoning.  Old bitches get Social Security at 63.  That is, to the casino’s, guaranteed income.  Of course, I won’t burst their bubble by pointing out that seniors will soon be paying a lot more in medical as ObammyCare starts.  Let them think they’ve figured it out. 

*

I’m not sure why they start the obscene comps at age fifty, but perhaps demographically that age group has more disposable income.  But here is my main complaint.  Gott Damn old humps lap this crap up, deeming themselves oh so much more worthy that the rest of us and hence entitled to these extra benefits the casinos are throwing their way.  Do you know what the $2.22 breakfast contains?  Bacon, eggs, and friggin coffee!!!  Go to Denny’s, the coffee alone is $1.75.  The old bitches are sucking the last of the dwindling resources into their greedy maws and cackling all the way.  I sure can’t get enough animal protein in my labor intensive job and yet they are being bribed with enough pig fat to impact their colon which has failed twice before and has been replaced with a Chinese pig model ( all those floaters on the river must have been the illegal harvesting ).  Humping government stunted my growth as a teenager when we rationed animal protein due to cost and now they are doing the same thing by diverting corn to ethanol so the humping seniors can fill up their Cadillac’s to drive by their lawn watered by pumping from a municipal well five hundred feet down, on their way to gambling their Social Security check away ( as they cry about being on a fixed income ) as they stuff their wrinkled pie-holes with subsidized pig meat.  Bastards!

  1. I hear that per Obamacare persons older than
    65 will not be given care for certain conditions. That should thin out the geezers. Perhaps Obamagov can use that money to provide cradle to grave freebies for muslim refugees from Africa, and every illegal who comes across the open border.

    1. I've heard certain Muslim groups work and others don't. I'm sure the FedGov will pick the lazy ones.

  2. Aren't you 50 yet?
    It certainly must be so judging by the crankiness of your writing.

    Anyway, whenever you do become eligible for senior discounts ... it'll be interesting to see if you accept and acknowledge/rationalize them.

    1. I'm still a spry 48. Remember, I avoided being lumped in with the Boomers-those that bought into the Never Ending Bennies From Global Empire-by the grace of all the gods and with 25 days to spare. Not too worried about discounts, which brings us to 2015 earliest, 2020 more likely. And you think oil will still be imported by then ( outside a trickle from our two neighbors if we are lucky )? I think I'll be safe from temptation.

    HAH! That's the funniest shit I've ready all day and I've been in a bitter mood after perusing the doom and gloom of my favorite blogs. THANKS!

    1. We might as well laugh and have fun as the ship lists severely to one side and the bankers have taken all the lifeboats ( they only put one or two people in each boat, but that was just being vindictive ).

  5. Lord B, does that include any food beyond the bacon and eggs? Thinking of changing my retirement strategy if it does. General low cost of living does me no good in Texas if my Denny's happy meals are 5.99!
