Thoughts on Auto Driven Cars

I must say, I have been excited about these ever since the concept was first being developed. Now, however, with the recent killing of an Arizona woman, it seems that the self-driving cars need to start back at the drawing board before being tested on the open road.

Uber has suspended their testing until the accident can be evaluated. My question, why was there even a road test in an environment where pedestrians were concerned? Shouldn’t these tests have been run and re-run on all different types of test tracks before being tested on the open road?

Have you ever noticed that companies tend to rush technology until AFTER something tragic happens? Oh, THEN, it’s: “Well, let’s change this or that now to make it safe.” Shouldn’t it have been made safe BEFORE someone is critically injured or dies?

Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the way it works with big industry. Look at all the airplane, or car deaths that could have been avoided if the machines and or parts were just made and tested as SAFE in the first place.

It seems as if we will never learn. Time and time again this happens, don’t believe it, when do you think we get the recalls from the auto industry, before or AFTER something tragic happens.

Come on Big industry, pay attention to past mistakes and actually LEARN something from them. Personally, I am tired of seeing innocent people being injured or worse because of a faulty product. Wake up…

 

 

 

 

The Government, Why Does it Act so Slow

 

  •  

    During the last year, there have been many senseless shootings. To me, this is an intolerable situation. Let me just say this, I am not against people carrying guns, I just believe the Government needs a better way to vet who they are selling them too.

    If we’re being honest, NOBODY except maybe law enforcement NEEDS to carry automatic weapons. Even then, I believe THAT is a stretch. I mean, HOW many bullets does it NEED to kill a man?

    The US Government waits, and waits, and waits, until there are several shootings BEFORE even considering changing the Laws about automatic weapons. This, to me, is absurd. The less automatic weapons out there the better.

    Just think, if the people who were buying guns were vetted properly, it may very well take the fear out of being involved in a major crime.

    Sure, will one get by now and then ; sure, but then again, MOST of those who will own guns will be law abiding citizens AND they would NOT be able to obtain automatic weapons.

    Most people who DO own firearms use them in responsible ways, such as target practice at the gun range, or for hunting. Congress is just afraid of the NRA to get in there and act, I say, to HELL with the NRA, change the laws before MORE innocent lives are lost.

    I say MAN up Congress, do the RIGHT thing for once, make America safe again. God Bless our people, and God Bless The United Stated of America.

     

     

     

     

 

Just Ask Sooz

Dear Sooz:

I need to vent in your column if it’s OK with you. I am disabled and need a scooter to get around. I have been disabled most of my life and am used to being so. What I want to say is this, “People, Don’t park in the handicapped section unless you are handicapped.”

The other day I was at the grocery store, and there were no handicapped parking spaces available. Now, that is OK if all of the handicapped spaces are filled with folks that need the space.

Usually, however, many times these spaces are taken by lazy ass people who don’t give a damn except for themselves, you know who you are.

Please give people who need to be closer to the store a chance. Believe me, if I could walk, I would be glad to walk farther away if I could.

Appreciate the fact that you are well bodied and able to walk. I would give my wisdom tooth to be able to be fully mobile.

Also, when I am in a crowd, please give me the courtesy not to stand in the middle of an aisle when someone needs to get through. If you want to carry on a conversation, move to the side so that others can pass.

Please be courteous and think of others, and not just of yourselves. If you do this, we will all feel a lot better about it. Thank you.

Dear Disabled Dorothy:

That you for writing in, this has always been a pet peeve of mine too. I appreciate your candor.

 

 

Sex, Masturbation and Master Slave

 

24804_1590_023_tb_123_192lo

Dear Internet

 I use you each and every day and I don’t understand why you give me prompts for writing that suggest- Sex, Master Slave, and Masturbation. Yes, while it is true that I occasionally talk about Sex and Masturbation, I hardly EVER discusses my Master Slave proclivities.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t MIND talking about Master slave situations, it’s just that I don’t write about it that often to have my writing suggestions use this subject. I would much rather have my suggestions include Just Ask Sooz, or perhaps Sooz’s Fractured Fairy Tales.

Hell, even those stories about getting drunk or having drunken sex would be better. Preferably, the best suggestions would be about-Rainbows, Unicorns, and World Peace. OK, look, I would probably sprinkle these subjects with Sex, Masturbation, and perhaps Master Slave proclivities, BUT, I would much rather see the above in print as suggestions.

 I am finished bitching now, I realize you are just doing your due diligence when it comes to offering suggestions for all your writers. I promise to play nice from now on and will just take your suggestions as written. I humbly apologize for being a sexy depraved woman, who loves engaging in continuous masturbation, and will write more about my sexual Master Slave occurrences to live up to my suggestive matter.

 

Regards,

Sooz

P.S. My hands are in my pants as we speak… FU!!!!

 

 

 

Rotten Tomatoes Score—WHAT??

Before I go off ranting and raving like a complete lunatic out of Jekyll and Hyde, let me just apologize for not writing on a regular basis. School is keeping me pretty busy and I have not been able to write as often as I would like.

Quick note though, so far, I have all A’s and am enjoying my “LATE” experience in academia very much. This was probably the best thing I have ever done, even though it remains very trying at times.

I absolutely LOVE the campus and the people here are all very friendly. The course material is hard, but peaks my interest in a way that I could never imagine possible.

Usually, one of the only things I can enjoy in my spare time is going to the movies on the weekend. I have always been a huge movie Nerd and today I come to you with a rant that indulges my Nerdiness.

Last weekend, I wanted to go and see a movie. Like most everyone, I looked at my phone to get the reviews on the movies that were out. Well, after reading the reviews, my spirits dropped, as most all of them were booed by the critics.

I checked The Rotten Tomato scores and again, most were very poor. Dejected, I turned to the fan reviews, here, I saw a completely different story. The fans LOVED most of the movies out that I wanted to see.

I did a little research and found that The Rotten Tomato scores are derived from the CRITICS reviews…WHY??? Shouldn’t they be judged on the PEOPLES reviews of the movies?

Armed with the fan reviews, I ventured out to see The Accountant starring Ben Affleck. Well, guess what??? I LOVED the movie. Let me say that from NOW on, I will NOT be reading the critics reviews but the FAN reviews.

Let’s change the Rotten Tomato scores so they fall under the FANS jurisdiction. If we’re being honest, in MY opinion, this is the ONLY opinion that really counts. Let’s face it, ANYONE can write a BAD review, let’s have someone who actually is ENTERTAINED by the movies give us the “CORRECT” scores.

Thanks for listening; this is just MY two cents worth.

 

 

Brad and Angelina—Back Off Press

Yes, it’s true that Angelina –Jolie filed for divorce against her husband of two years Brad Pitt. Here’s the thing though folks, divorce is a sad thing and shouldn’t be a media circus.

If we’re honest, marriage is supposed to be an everlasting union, NOT a media event for everyone ELSE to whoop and holler, and carry on like it’s the biggest thing since French Toast and Maple Syrup.

Personally, I feel sorry for both of them. After all, they actually have been together for 14 years now, and have 6 kids to love and tend to. How in the HELL is the media frenzy gonna make that any easier.

Let’s face it, Brad is being hounded, Angelina is being hunted down like a wounded animal for comment, JUST so the “PEOPLE” can get their noses filled with what really happened in their marriage.

I say, leave them the HELL alone, and let THEM figure it out. In MY opinion, there should NOT be any “THRILL” in having two people who have loved each other for 14 years be tortured and hunted for comments.

Just because they are Hollywood Legends, does NOT give the press, the right to Enhance their pain that they are both going through. Leave them alone and let them sort out their OWN problems.

This is MY two cents worth.

Until Later…

 

 

Why Do We HAVE the Olympics

Gladiator

I realize the Olympics have been around since 776 BC, but they were playing for a religious reason, to honor the gods of Olympus. Today, let’s be honest, we are playing for the almighty BUCK!!!

Seriously, think about it, the USA is DOMINATING the Olympics by almost 22+ goals…Hello, doesn’t this piss off the other countries who have been working just as hard if not harder than the USA to win those gold medals?

Is it REALLY for brotherhood and acceptance of other countries, cultures and ideologies…NO!!! Is it about the ALMIGHTY Buck…Yes!!! Should it BE about the ALMIGHTY Buck…NO!!!

Now, does that mean I don’t like the Olympics, no, I just believe that it should become a show-off game for the USA, and THAT my friends, pisses me off. Since everybody playing in the games are now professional athletes, they should get PAID accordingly, at least THEN, if they don’t medal, they still come away with a paycheck, something of recognition for their sacrifice.

Most all the BUCKS go to the networks, and sponsors for setting them up, the players get BUPKIS!!! I ask you, does THIS seem fair? Every other greedy finger is greased EXCEPT the players.

I’ll tell you what, if I was a pretty and skilled half naked volleyball gal or perhaps Bad mitten cutie, I would DEMAND to be paid. Hell, if there is a possibility I am NOT going to get the gold, I at least want a piece of the pie for playing. Hey, that’s fair.

Ever wonder why you have never seen ME showin’ my tits or ass, no bucks, no peaky. Oh yeah, PLUS, I have no skills for the Olympics. Oh well, I guess I’ll just shut up now and turn on the tube, boxing is on…

Have a good one everyone…

 

Once Upon a Time

2002_ferrari_enzo__gran_turismo_5__by_vertualissimo-d5cp9xo

Once upon a time a long, long time ago…

My Conscience:   Oh come ON Sooz, the story you are about to tell happened to you yesterday.

Me:    Well, OK, but I ALWAYS like to tell my stories THAT way.

My Conscience:    Get with the program girl, this is the REAL world NOT Fractured Fairy Tales…

Me:   Well, OK then, it was yesterday. THERE…Feel better now?????????

My Conscience:   Yes, now get on with the damn story, I’m busy here.

 

Anyway, so YESTERDAY, I was grocery shopping, and when I came out with my purchases, I noticed that someone had key scratched my car. Now that wasn’t bad ENOUGH, but there was a note on my car that read “This is what you get for being a Lesbo. This must mean that it was someone who knows me, right?

I was so mad I called the police, when they came; they said they couldn’t do anything about it as there were no witnesses. I could have spit glass I was so angry. Who would do something like this? Where is Humanity going anyway?

First of all the purps. screwed up because I am a bisexual being, assholes. It’s a good thing I didn’t see them do it or their lives would have been Hell from then on.

I called my insurance company and I will be out 500.00 for my deductible, but they will cover it. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes people just really piss me off. Sorry, I am STILL fuming.

 

 

Being Unemployed Sucks

From the above title, you can probably imagine what my topic is today, yup, that’s right, it’s about being unemployed. Interesting really, I haven’t been unemployed since I was a wee lass, what the Hell does one DO all day while being in this state? God, it’s like watching PAINT dry.

I have read pretty much ALL the newspapers I can find, cleaned my home so clean you can now literally EAT off of ANY surface you want, including the toilet.

I have fed the homeless till they can eat no more, I think the only thing I haven’t done is join Habitat for Humanity, remember the “Tool” thingy? I can NOT be trusted with hammers, sharp looking objects, or Nail gun thingies that go BANG in the night.

Thank God school will be starting soon. That I can handle, along with all the good looking professors that I’m sure that will come my way. At least I still have my Brazil project to check up on as often as I want. Man, WHO can STAND being unemployed?

This just feels really weird. I have sold my business, and got a place to live, so all I am waiting on is for the school to accept one high strung, red headed Irishman amongst their tight knitted little college.

Look out Stanford, Sooz is coming…

 

I Must Speak Out

 

I can stand it no more, Donald Trump must GO!!! Usually I don’t get involved in political rhetoric because, well, that’s what is is, “Dribbling at the mouth”.  However, when you say such things as, Things could have gone quite differently if the people at the club were armed, that in my opinion is just showing your stupidity.

Look, I believe in the Constitution, but is “The Donald” really saying that we should go back 100 years to the gun toting days of the old west? Come ON Trump.

Certainly everybody is entitled to his/her opinions, but, when it comes to turning our backs on civilization and strappin’ on our guns, where does it end? Should there have been armed guards at the door, or metal detectors, maybe, but to just strap on a gun is just plain ludicrous.

Terrorism CAN NOT be tolerated. We must make an example of ISIS and show them the Tiger’s teeth of a STRONG nation. NO MORE messing around, EVERY life is precious, senseless loss is just unforgivable. We must be strong in our resolve, vigilant in our everyday lives, and stop terrorism BEFORE it occurs.

Perhaps we need to learn different tactics in order to thwart these deadly attacks. I am NOT a candidate, otherwise I would give you MY views on how to stop these heinous acts, but I’ll leave THAT to our new Presidential candidates, God help them.

Just let me say that my prayers and thoughts go out to all the victims and their families. May these poor souls rest in peace, and May God’s light shine upon them…

God Bless America…
