Is KGBDeals the Same as the KGB of the Former USSR?

More later re “kgbdeals.”

UPDATE:

Be careful when it comes to “kgbdeals,” much less their “exclusive daily deals.

I didn’t sign on to “exclusive daily deals” — never knew a thing about kgbdeals ten days ago — but now I can’t shake’em.

Oh, and if they snare you and you want to stop getting their emails, you have to send a letter — yes, a letter — handwritten or typed with a 40+ cent postage stamp — to P. O. Box 3109, Ste 49, Houston, Texas.  3109, US.

Say that again?  The Zip Code is “3109?”

A four numeral Zip Code?

Gosh.  Could that be another hitch in my attempt to get this leech of a corporation off my back?  The letter I write (where’s the “Unsubscribe” button people!) is returned due to an “insufficient address” because of an incorrect Zip Code? (Every Zip Code I know of has five numbers.  The “expanded” ones have five + four.)

Then what?

I start all over?

Where does this end?

Educating Kids in Colorado is, Well, Not All That Important

The State of Colorado ranks 47th in the nation when it comes to funding education.

Bearing that in mind, Colorado’s new Democratic — yes, that would be D-e-m-o-c-r-a-t-i-c  — Governor, John Hickenlooper, proposed today that the state,

cut K-12 education by $375 million, which equates to approximately $500 per student. The plan further calls for cuts to higher education of $36 million.

I’ll say it again — listen-up Looper:   MOST AMERICANS SAY TAX THE RICH TO BALANCE BUDGET!

About Balancing the Budget

A reminder to politicians and the corporate media:  Most Americans Say Tax the Rich to Balance Budget.

They don’t care what “most Americans” have to say even though, in the case of politicians, they work for us.  We’re their bosses for God’s sake.

CBS Reporter Lara Logan Assaulted in Egypt

This is horrid:

On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a “60 Minutes” story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.

In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.

There will be no further comment from CBS News and Correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.

Wishing you all the best Lara.
