Treat Your ‘Valentine’ To Rotten Dead Animals From KROGER!

As usual, I found myself screeching and wailing somewhere the other day and this particular screeching and wailing session was inside a Kroger grocery store on Wards Road in Lynchburg, Virginia.

But, let me first begin by saying that I was minding my business, when lo and behold, I came to the end of an aisle and someone said, “Miss! Miss! Could you please come here a minute?”

Now, I’m looking around because I’m wondering who the voice was calling for and she said, “Miss! Could you help me with something?” So, my eyes finally focus on a group standing by the ‘dead animal showcase’. Normally, I steer clear of that but since I was ‘invited’ over, I warily approach the ‘dead animal showcase’ and immediately got to shaking because it just makes me sick to my stomach. But as usual, I digress.

A lady was standing in front of the ‘dead animal showcase’ and she said, “I am trying to inform this man(the butcher, I presume)that this hamburger has gone bad. It is turning brown and he is trying to tell me that what I see is the ‘fat content’.”

Now, other people are standing around, but they have all, apparently, been struck dumb or were quiet zombies or comatose.

I looked at the ‘hamburger’ and there were two different types, side by side. The more expensive hamburger was red as red can be, while the hamburger next to it was turning brown. I stared down the butcher for a couple of seconds and then I let him have it. I said,

“You know goodness goddamn well that this ‘meat’ is bad. No ‘fat content is brown because if it were, then your white fat ass would have long since turned brown since it is your contention that ‘fat turns brown’. I have heard it all! Why are you lying to this woman who is about to spend her hard earned money on some damn shit that’s turned and you fucking know it??!!! I am reporting your ass, the meat department’s ass and this Kroger store to corporate, but since I know nothing is going to be done, I am posting the pictures of this shit on my blog because bad publicity is something that the Kroger Corporation doesn’t fucking need seeing as how this shit of a grocery chain has already been in the news for selling Hepatitis A in the form of frozen berry bags. Not to mention, I read an article about how Kroger sales are way down and Kroger Corporation had to capitulate to VISA and start accepting VISA credit cards again. Are you fucking serious? You’re still at it? Trying to make people sick by lying to them about what they are buying? You fucking think everyone is on some dumb ass time just because most don’t speak up for themselves? Well, you’ve more than met your match today! Get this woman some of your BEST ‘meat’ and stop standing there telling lies all day long. Miss, how many pounds of this mess do you want?” She said, “Three pounds.” I said, “Get her what she wants. Hop to it!”

I like you to know that bastard came back with two trays of the same type of hamburger that this lady was asking for and it did not look anything like what was sitting in the display case. He then weighed three pounds of the ‘fresh meat’ or as fresh as you’re going to get inside a Kroger store while the lady was thanking me profusely for coming to her aid.

When I was about to turn away, she said, “Can I ask you something?” I said, “Of course.” The lady then proceeded to tell me a bit about herself and she told me that she just could not get her landlord to fix her heat and despite numerous complaints to him about the heat and noise from other tenants, she was being driven crazy. I looked at her for a minute and this is what I said.

“Miss, the reason your landlord is treating you like shit is because people just complain and never follow through. People are either too scared to make waves, too brain dead to stand up for themselves or mostly, too damn much of a conformist. Look at what those others did who were standing around you at the ‘meat display case’. Not one of them had the balls to open their piehole and say a damn word and they were more than likely about to order the same shit for ‘meat’ as you did. That speaks volumes. That also tells corporations and governments that they can just continue to shove shit at us and we just simply nod and pick the shit up, eat it, get sick, puke and shit and repeat the cycle. I’ll be damned if I’ll include myself in that. You fucking tell your landlord that you are going to call the housing code office and report his ass and not only that, you are going to get a lawyer and sue his ass for not maintaining the property in a safe manner and not only that, you are entitled to ‘quiet, peaceful enjoyment of your home’ and that’s what the fuck you want.”

That lady thanked me, up one side and down the other and told me that she was so glad to have met me. Now, I don’t get that often, in fact, quite the opposite. Usually, someone is trying to run me out of town and that includes landlords, doctors, store owners, government offices; every damn entity that is in business to fuck us up and believe me, they are fucking us up while we take it with nary a whimper. Look at the damn pictures of the shit you’re paying good money for in these damn stores that are sending our asses to some quacks that only make the situation worse!

Take a look!

And no, it should not matter if the hamburger is ground sirloin or ground chuck, neither should be turning brown while still in the display case.

And yet another one.

And since I’d already gotten started, I took some pictures of some more shit that should not have been sitting somewhere waiting to be sold to the public because it was already rotting!

Look at this mess!

And again!

Look at what Kroger is trying to get away with selling! Just look at THAT shit!

Y’all meat eaters don’t really care about yourselves. That is quite obvious if you can eat that shit on display there!

No thank you! Kroger can keep that shit even if I was a ‘meat’ eater. USDA choice? Yeah! You’ve got a ‘choice’ alright. Choose NOT to eat SHIT! That’s the choice you should make.

I’m not fucking finished.

You think that shit looks appealing? Seriously??!!!

I don’t want to hear no shit about the ‘lighting’. I was there. I saw this shit up close and personal and believe me, the ‘lighting’ had nothing to do with this shit going bad. I have showcased meat on this blog before and you can find that here and here and so, that is more proof of the shit you’re actually paying good money for and dragging it out of the store, cooking it and eating it and then wondering why you’re fucked up. Keep eating this shit and you’ll soon be underground. Mass food production was the absolute worse goddamn thing that could have been put in to play. That shit is a great way to kill millions of people and believe me, it is.

So folks, enjoy your Valentine’s Day. Go out and get a huge T-bone steak that’s filled with chemicals; growth hormones and antibiotics and who the fuck knows what else. Enjoy some ‘seafood’ that’s  been ‘farm raised’ and get the dubious ‘benefits’ from that as you share it with someone you obviously DON’T love because if you did, you most definitely would NOT feed them that shit!

And another thing. Expect the shit that’s being served to you to continue because you don’t say shit about what you see when you are in these stores. You just stand there and stare at the shit as if it is going to tell you that it’s some damn good. The shit is dead. The shit is shit and yet, you don’t say shit. You just buy it and eat it and go back for more. You wonder why you are depressed. You are depressed because you are brain dead and comatose and terrified to make a sound. I am the ONLY one out there screeching and yelling and getting shit done. But goddamn it! I cannot do it alone. The majority of you just take this shit and as long as you are going to take it, they are going to dish it out! You mean, you can’t figure that out for yourselves? Seriously???!!! Your fucking life does not have to be lived this way but because you are not willing to step out of your comfort zone and make waves, this is why your life is fucked up and about to get worse. I see blog after blog of folks moaning and whining about Trump and fascism and about the stupidity of the Dems and the detestable, loathsome Repubs. They are fucking over us all! Maybe it hasn’t gotten around to you yet, but it will.

You don’t have a goddamn thing to celebrate today. Valentine’s Day don’t mean shit when everything is going to hell in a hand basket. But yet, they want your ass to go out and consume, consume and consume because ‘they’ say it’s Valentine’s Day and so buy some flowers, candy, lingerie and eat some surf n turf. Yeah! Go on out like the good little sheeple you are and do exactly as you are told. Go to the car wash and get the ride all nice and clean and then head for the nearest steakhouse or Kroger and purchase some dead shit or even some sea creature that’s still kicking and boil the poor sucker. It’s all for a good cause, ain’t it? To make your wife and your side piece happy so that you can get some carnal satisfaction? How long is that going to last? And for you ladies, I guess you want some more jewelry, another fur coat, an expensive purse, shoes and another credit card. You’re pathetic! Selling your wares for materialistic junk! No fucking thank you!

Yeah! Happy Valentine’s Day suckers!

 

Valentine The Homeless (A Re-post)

valentine the homeless

 

This would be as good a day as any to take that money that you intend to spend on your ‘valentine’ and spend it on helping out a homeless person and before you start in about how the homeless would just spend it on alcohol or drugs, take a minute and think about what you intend to spend it on. A nice bottle of wine, perchance? Or how about a little pick-me-up pill called Viagra or Cialis? Are they not drugs? You see, when we want to feel all self-righteous about what we do as opposed to what someone else does, then we fail to realize that we are doing exactly what we are castigating others for doing. Most of us have a vice and some of us have more than one. I freely admit to mine. It is champagne and I am going to practice what I preach and ‘valentine’ a homeless person. And it doesn’t matter if you have no ‘valentine’ to celebrate Valentine’s Day with.

The point is that there are people who are living on the mean streets of every shitty city in America and they will not get a box of chocolates, nor will they get a bouquet of hothouse flowers. They will not get skimpy, libido enhancing lingerie. Hell! What would they do with that anyway? If you cannot bring yourself to give the homeless, cash, then why not ‘valentine’ them a gift card? There are gift cards for Starbucks, Ruby Tuesdays, Applebee’s, AMC theaters and a host of other stores and restaurants. Or how about gifting the homeless with a brand new blanket or handing them a cup of coffee or some new socks. No, it will not solve the problem of homelessness, but it will most likely make a difference in their lives to know that someone thought about them for a change. And if you told your ‘valentine’ what you did with the money that you would have spent on him/her, chances are, you’ll both be on cloud nine on Valentines night.

So, this year, why not do things a little differently? ‘Valentine’ a homeless person, it will certainly help them and it wouldn’t hurt you.

Valentine the homeless and make this their day.
Who needs lingerie when you’ve seen it anyway?
Please use your heart and give your lust a rest.
Help the unfortunates; those who aren’t blessed.
That box of chocolates will just make her fat.
And if you give him boxers, he’ll really hate that.
Since you love one another, you don’t need a gift.
But those who are homeless, could sure use the lift.
In the spirit of the day, think of those out in the cold.
I said, “Love one another!” if I may be so bold!

Since you’re hell bent on making corporations happy, at least try and make it count for something.

This post is getting a lot of attention and I thought that since it was well-received when I originally posted it, this would be the perfect time to re-post it and hopefully shine an awareness on the serious issue of homelessness as we celebrate Valentine’s Day in one of the coldest months of the year. Please take time out of your busy schedule to notice those who are less fortunate and at least offer them a hot cup of cocoa on a cold winter’s day. It will be most appreciated. Believe me, I know. I have been homeless.
