Kitty Hill Resort Sucks in my opinion!

This is the review I wrote on Yelp of Kitty Hill Resort For Cats in Santa Cruz, California:

If I could give this place a negative ten I would. After spending a week at Kitty Hill our cats got sick, very sick. One of them may die. We have spent hundreds of dollars in vet bills, so far. Go ahead, visit the place walk around it. Ask yourselves; how can they possibly sanitize it? How can they keep diseases from spreading between the cats? I wish I had. Oh, they do animal rescue. A noble cause. But, where have those cats been? Our cats were indoor only cats. They make you sign a release before boarding your cats there releasing them of liability if your cats die. Good thing for them. Too bad I didn't take heed. I am full of regret and anger after boarding our cats at Kitty Hill. Our vet said diseases can spread like wild fire in places like this. They have cats walking all over the place. There is furniture & rugs & stray cats & no way to really clean it. Big mistake on our part! Two words of advice: stay away!

I would never, ever take my cats again to Kitty Hill Resort For Cats. For me it has been Kitty Hell!

I agree with Krugman

Paul Krugman, like me, is a liberal, but that's not the only reason I like him. I actually think he is right. The Government has to be the spender of last resort. You can't save your way out of a depression, you have to spend. Spending is the only way to create jobs. That is exactly what we did in World War 2. From an economics point of view, WW2 was a massive government jobs program. On his blog Krugman writes:

A spending freeze? That’s the brilliant response of the Obama team to their first serious political setback?

It’s appalling on every level.

It’s bad economics, depressing demand when the economy is still suffering from mass unemployment. [Read More]

In my opinion World War 2 may have ended the effects of the depression, but it was the New Deal programs of President Franklin D. Roosevelt that started the recovery. This recovery, I think, would have been much further along had not a new conservative coalition caused a rollback of the New Deal policies in early 1937, which caused a setback of the recovery. A setback that it took a war to set right. In my opinion Obama's spending freeze is another such setback. Hopefully it will not take another World War to set things right.

Nope, not handicapped

Click on photo to enlarge.

I had an argument with the driver of this car. He pulled right into the Starbucks Parking Lot in Saratoga Old Town, parked in a handicapped space, and went into the Starbucks to order a drink. No, he wasn't handicapped. He swore at me and called me a jerk for complaining about HIS parking in a handicapped space. Yes, there was vacant street spots 50 feet away. Then he sped off out of the parking lot. I guess if you are young, rude and have the California License Plate 4HPK997 (with expired tags) the world is your oyster.
