(HISPANIC ART ABSTRACT IN EUGENE, OREGON)
Caroline was chatting at me, while I was desperately trying to make my plumbing in my toilet and bathroom work. My house was a very old house, and I had just a few months ago spent $2000 on a new shower installed (which I hated) and also new carpentry and plumbing for the underneath part in front of my toilet.
The toilet floor was always falling in, costing me lots of money in plumbing bills, carpentry, and everything else that tradesmen can hit you with, when your toilet and bathroom fails. The PLUMBING, that is.
“I don’t know what to do,” I said desperately. I had talked to the Roto-Rooter man, who had cleaned out my whole plumbing line, all the way to the city water hookup. – Which always cost a lot of money, and we did not own our own sewers; people in Eugene and Lane county had to pay taxes forever, on their own sewers. And we had to pay for wastewater, water water, you name it water. We had to pay and pay and pay and pay for sewer lines!
“the Roto-Rooter man said, if my own sewer line, which is hooked up to the city sewer line, is destroyed, it might cost me as much as $10,000 to put in a new one, just to get a shower, and a toilet, and water in a basin in the bathroom” I groaned.my bathroom was SO OLD, back then they all made the drain plug right into the cement foundation. The plumber and the carpenter had never seen anything like it, but back then that’s what they all did. But now! – – I think the whole thing was going to fail.
“Caroline, what the hell am I going to do? This could cost me thousands and thousands of dollars that I don’t have!” She was off on another tangent ignoring me; “I just found out a fantastic secret about Mayor Kitty; you know what it is?” I looked at her sourly; “I could care less about what’s wrong with Mayor Kitty, meow me ow!what’s the matter, she’s got a hairball??”
There was one other thing, if my bathroom was completely unfixable; a plumber could build a sideline, directly to the sewer line, new pipe right to the toilet, shower, and they said directly bypassing the whole underneath defunct drain system. But you would have to get a GOOD PLUMBER, and nothing like that existed, that I knew of the Eugene.
ACTUAL GOOD PLUMBERs in Eugene Oregon? That was like trying to find a snowball, in HELL
Eugene and this County had “tradesmen, anonymous” the worst tradesmen that you could ever find. I shuddered to think trying to find a real plumber that understood what I meant, about building an outside plumbing line, directly to my toilet and bypassing the old drain.
I commiserated with my sister, in another state over the phone; she was having the same problem, a failing bathroom in her old house! EVERY OLD HOUSE bathroom goes defunct! No more plumbing!what were we going to do? If we didn’t get GOOD plumbers, we were screwed!
And all the trades men in the United States now, were all bad. Everybody who did a job in the United States now, did a lousy mess of it ! There was no such thing as an efficient,Smart, and competent tradesmen or otherwise human in the United states who knew what they were doing at their work!and all the old, old fashion good workers, were all retiring or dying off.
“they must all be employees of Microsoft and Windows,” I mumbled bitterly, but Carolyn was not paying any attention. I paid no attention to HER. What was she saying about Mayor Kitty? Who cared about Mayor Kitty and her ailments; She had already done so much damage to the city, physically and literally,it was unfixable, just like my plumbing and bathroom. But I was so tired and exhausted, I started to listen to her and sit down. “I had analyzed and examined all the behavior all the time, of Mayor Kitty, and I got somebody to hack into her medical records. Guess what? Guess what about Mayor Kitty?”
“okay I give up, what about it?what’s up with her?” I asked. Carolyn started to gasp and giggle; “according to the mayor’s medical records and her doctor, all that wild, hyper, fantastic building behavior, of tearing out huge avenues, spending millions on green dragon buses, and taking all the cars off the road, all that manic behavior adds up to one thing; she’s bipolar.”
I paused to listen; “Hmmm… Well that would explain a lot, wouldn’t it?” I replied. “And,” Carolyn continued gasping with amazement; “according to her records, she is not in control on medication very well; she keeps having manic episodes tremendously, all the time anyway! And nobody knew about it.the whole town just thought she was very enthusiastic, full of energy, and knew what she was doing.” “NOBODY thought she knew what she was doing,” I commented. “We all knew she was crazy, we just didn’t know it was official!”
It sounded horrible.it sounded like Ronald Reagan all over again!”you’re not making this up just to entertain me away from my plumbing, are you?” I asked her. “Absolutely NO, this is the God awful truth, I saw all the records the hacker showed me, myself. She has been MANIC, out-of-control, with very disturbing behavior officially as a bipolar person. Plus, she also has Alzheimer’s coming on badly!” I whistled. “WOW! Double and triple– Ronald Reagan! Say, does anybody else know about this? Just you and the hacker?”
“this is the first time I have told anyone about it,”whispered Carolyn to me conspiratorially. “And this time it is NOT A FAKE STORY, just to enliven your blog episode! I wish it were! She’s still fucking around with the whole town, on a manic,crazy bent, and nobody’s going to stop her! “” Eugene, Oregon, the mental sanatorium!” I chuckled. “But now yes, it is official.””this also is to blame for all those huge campaigns to make Eugene “Art Center of Oregon” and “art center of the United States”, make us all famous and rich by using art!” Said Carolyn finally.”wow, that really makes a lot of sense!” I finished up with.
“what are you going to do with this news?”I asked, finally. “Can you give it to any newspapers?” “None of the newspapers in Oregon will accept news like that, they always shelve any inside dope about any of their leaders, until it gets so bad, they can’t hide it anymore. Nobody will publish this damn thing!” “Well, if you can officially leak it to newspapers and news, what are you going to do with it?” I asked her.
.Carolyn paused for effect, and then started; “I am going to LEAK IT EVERYWHERE, I’m going to LEAK all this information about Mayor Kitty, on comments all over the WEB! I’m going to send anonymous letters to every single anti-kitty faction, I’m going to go undercover, and just LEAK THE MEDICAL INFORMATION, and even if I can get it on “wiki leaks” (if they want it and if they still exist.)
“do you think that will really work?” I finally asked her. “After all, nobody ever reads my blog; where else are you going to put it and not get sued?” I further said “Carolyn, I don’t think anybody CARES that Mayor Kitty is bipolar, constantly manic, and out-of-control, that’s why the liberal idiots like her! They adore her for being that way!they love her grandiose, over-the-top, phantasmagorical, taxing, socialistic, insane , dictatorial, cutthroat criminal practices! That’s why they voted her in, they’re never going to 21 her out or even believe that! THEY DON’T CARE!”
I continued, relentlessly; “just like no plumber or tradesmen, gives a shit about any of my bathroom plumbing problems! They could care less, they just want to collect thousands of bucks for fucking it up further! I talked to my sister about it I think I know what I’m going to do if this all goes south and south very expensively.” Carolyn looked at me wonderingly.
“I might do what a lot of people around this area do;” I started. “Get somebody to dig me an OUT HOUSE, in the back, and use that.it never gets that freezing cold, during the winter that I can’t go out to an outhouse in the back. And I can make – temporary inside deposits, properly – while I can’t make it to the outside. I have to do that anyway, every single time my plumbing goes south and I am throwing money down the toilet! ALL THE TIME! I’m sick of it!”
I continued, “and that shower? I hate the stupid thing, it’s like a tomb! I’ll get a BATH TUB, and simply hose water into it, from the kitchen, and just let it drain out when I’m done. I only take a bath once a week, I don’t need it anymore than that! My skin is too dry to bathe more OFTEN!”I paused for effect. “Taking a shower in that horrible shower stall, is so bad, I hate it I hate it I hate it! Even filling up a bath tub once a week, and then letting it drain out would be better! It’s not that much of an inconvenience compared to that horrible SHOWER stall that I hate! That cost me $2000, and it is a piece of SHIT!” I once again paused for effect, watching Carolyn’s face.
“so you’re saying,” replied Carolyn calmly, “your bathroom is OVER WITH. It’s dead. You’re going to have a bathtub, hose water into it, once a week, and have your toilet in the back in an out -house.(and when you can’t get out to the back, you will have “temporary”, mmmm.. “Arrangement”) well, I can’t say you’re wrong; your toilet and your whole bathroom plumbing are breaking down, all the time, for years, constantly. If the whole DRAIN just doesn’t work anymore, and you can’t get any good plumbers to just do outside PIPES directly to the toilet, shower, basin, I might do the same thing.”
“– – give up on getting plumbers and tradesmen and carpenters, and shower – fitters to actually DO THEIR JOBS PROPERLY, and give up on THEM, also.I can understand that, actually after all this is Oregon, and that’s the whole way now,in the United States; nobody can do their jobs anymore.None of our MAJOR SOFTWARE WORKS!!(BILL GATES, YOU FUCKER!!).”
“The Pres. and the US Fed Govt. CAN’T DO THEIR JOBS ANYMORE. the rest of all professions,workers, dentists, tradesmen, CAN’T DO THEIR JOBS. Your bathroom plumbing is over?
“We have a bi-polar, manic Mayor in Eugene, tearing up the city, and NOBODY STOPS HER! She’s turning us into a jobless, business-less Detroit; a non-profit-socialist-Saint-Vincent-DePaul-work-slavery-for-minimum-wage-county and city!!
“God, China would love this; SLAVE-WORKERS, working for pennies!! Saint Vincent De Paul is the MAJOR EMPLOYER of all Eugene. HAH!! HAH!! WHY complain about work-slaves in China? Saint Vincent De Paul has done that here!!”Move to colorful, hippie, cool Eugene, Oregon, and work for slave-wages the rest of your life!” St. Vinnie makes Wal-Mart look like the REAL saint. ” I had to stop poor Caroline, she saw all the poor in Eugene, and Lane, all working for Saint Vinnies for nothing, pushing out all the real business-jobs, so the Fat, Sainted Non-Profit could exploit the Hell out of them. I knew she tried to help them, but what could she do, against Saint Vinnie’s? What could she do about bi=polar Mayor Kitty? NOTHING.
You get the true picture of Eugene, OR; a crazy,out-of-control mayor; every working-person on slave-wages to Saint Vinnies; no real business, no real jobs. Americans who can’t do their jobs correctly anymore. Lousy tradesmen.it made my plumbing fiasco, look like heaven. At least I could DO SOMETHING, finally about my bathroom plumbing. But who the hell was going to fix Eugene Oregon?
