This weekend I drank a lot of pop. I had got down to 24 oz a day during the week and even had no pop on Tuesday. I had 5 pops 60oz on Friday and 130 oz on Saturday at my friends kid's first birthday party. I was there for 11 hours even though the party was only from 1pm to 5pm. I had 3 pops 36 oz today. I had 330 oz of pop between last Monday and today. I want to get that under 150 oz this week. At work I was given my own area to clean everyday, but I wasn't really trained on what to do each day exactly. I was given a sheet with a list of stuff to do but it is not possible to do all of it everyday. I'm going to have to ask some questions tomorrow and throughout the week.

So I started the new job today, I worked 7am to 3:30pm. I spent the morning vacuuming the floors and using a machine to clean and mop the wood floors. I started to work with this other lady and we took out some trash but soon it is close to lunch so we went back to the break room. We take a 30 minute unpaid lunch but we get 2 paid breaks we take them with our lunch to make it an hour. After lunch we had a meeting on using new equipment but the meeting wasn't until 30 minutes after lunch was over but instead of going back to work for 30 minutes we just hung out in the break room. After the meeting I worked with the lady cleaning offices and checking to make sure the bathrooms were ok. At 3pm apparently everyone goes back to the break room and sits around until 3:30. It wasn't too bad of a day and I think I can do this job well. I only had 2 pops today if you count the Mountain Dew kick start drink pop a total of about 40 oz. although there is a pop machine in the break room that sells 20oz pops for only a dollar.

Also I was invited to a kids birthday party, my friends kid turns 1 in a week and the party is next Saturday. There will be mostly adults though but the kids 5 cousins will be there most likely. I need to get a gift though.

So I went to the orientation and filled out paperwork then watched some videos on safety stuff, I got a quick tour of the janitor employee area. I'm suppose to go in at 7am tomorrow and Friday but 7am probably won't be my regular time. She seemed to want me to work the 4:30am shift but originally she told me 9:30am. I will work either shift though, but prefer the 9:30am shift. She asked me about it and I was unsure because I thought it was settled that I would work the 9:30am shift. I think it will be settled after I'm done training. Should I ask for the 9:30 shift if she was kind of pushing me towards the 4:30am shift? I wonder if you can change shifts if someone quits or something.

I go in tomorrow for orientation at 8am. I'm only having a small pop today since I will have to wake up at 6:45 tomorrow morning. Hopefully I will work the rest of the week too.

Interesting, I don't know how things work out there but here in Michigan I believe both areas have to vote on it. But you are talking California and a unincorporated area so it is probably different. Do your neighbors also want to become part of the city of West Covina? Are you part of the unincorporated area of South San Jose Hills? You probably need to get all the residents in your neighborhood together and contact the city of West Covina that you are interested in being annexed. What city services are you looking for?

I want to meet some posters here so I can see how different they are from how I see them. Who want to meet? I will bring the pop.

No but it's still not popular and most Republicans oppose it strongly. Unfortunately the right has done a great job attacking it mostly with lies. The ad they have been running here about the lady with cancer who lost her insurance and doctor is a lie. The lady found a cheaper plan on the exchanges and kept her doctor but lots of people will believe the ad.

I have been hitting the pop pretty hard the last 2 weeks, once I start working next week I will have to cut back a lot. I guess I'm drinking a lot of pop while I still can which is bad. I expect a call monday about my start date, I may even go in Monday but I doubt it since I haven't heard from them about a start date. I went to the dentist Friday and they were going to just fill two cavities but the two teeth were so decayed that they decided that they needed crowns because if they just fill it the teeth could break, which happened to a tooth a few weeks ago and that will have to be pulled.

Pretending to care about "fraud" by the Republicans so they can gut food stamps and welfare is the worst it's sad so many people fall for it.

They should have spent all night talking about income inequality. A real problem people care about, that greatly affects their lives.

The democrats really need to do something about turnout in midterms. Hopefully they can win a big in 2016 and take the house back with a large enough majority to not lose it in 2018. Although 2018 needs to be at least a decent year for the Democrats they need to get at least partial control of state governments for redistricting purposes. Even forcing fair maps will help.

So I was not selected for a jury yesterday. At 2pm my group of 30 went in to a courtroom for selection. I even got called up and asked questions, I thought I might be on the jury but then the defense objected to me and I got to leave. It was 3pm so I got to go home. The case was a civil case, some lady was suing someone for future loss wages due to being seriously injured in a car accident.

My potential employer called the drug testing company and they found my test but it wasn't tested yet so we are waiting on that, if I pass that they will do the criminal background test then I can start. Hopefully I start Monday.

17  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Would you want to work 60 hours in one week? on: March 12, 2014, 12:31:48 am
No I don't think I could work more than 50 hours a week for more than a few weeks. I find work so stressful. I could never work 60 hours in a week. No one should have to work more than 40 a week to survive. I want to put in my 40 hours and go home it's sad that this is considered lazy to some people. Americans are overworked and underpaid. Everyone should get two weeks paid vacation too.

Democrats need to focus on turnout this November. Spend whatever you have to to get out the vote. Also defend obamacare get some people who the law has helped real stories not fake lying ones like the republicans.
20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Alex Sink running for Bill Young's old house seat on: March 11, 2014, 07:27:31 pm
So Sink was an awful candidate and only lost by 2%? With a decent candidate and better turnout could it go Democrat in Nov.
21  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Describe your county's political/demographic history on: March 11, 2014, 06:53:41 pm
Wayne county Michigan population 1.82 million. Largest county in Michigan and home to the largest city in Michigan, Detroit. A large and diverse county, very Democratic, Obama won almost 73% of the vote in 2012 although the Democratic vote is much higher in the city of Detroit, 97%, vs the suburbs which many are under 60% for Obama. Romney won several areas in the northwest area of Wayne county, including Livonia, Plymouth township, and Northville township also probably some of the Grosse Pointes but I don't feel like looking it up right now. Detroit is over 80% black the county as a whole is 52% white and 41.5% black, the black population is falling due to blacks leaving Detroit and moving to Oakland county. Obviously the city of Detroit has experienced massive population loss over the last 60 years. Historically here has been a very big racial divide with the suburbs being 90% plus white and the city 80%+ black. The last 10 years has seen a lot of black people moving to the suburbs of Wayne county, Westland, Wayne, Romulus, And Redford have from 15 to 35% black populations. A few others have around 10% including Canton, Michigan which also has a high Asian population, 18%. Dearborn Michigan is known for its Arab population about 40% of Dearborn's population.

Politically the northwest cities and townships are the most Republican areas. Mostly Livonia, Plymouth (my hometown), Plymouth township, Northville, and Northville township. These areas send Republicans to most offices and vote Republican for president. Thaddeus McCotter represented this area in congress along with a chunk of Oakland. The rest of the suburban Wayne county is more blue collar working class especially downriver area. The Grosse Pointes along the Detroit river in the northeast corner are a affluent group of small cities and known as a the well off part of town.

This is what I got for now, feel free to ask questions if you want.

The Republican Party doesn't care about poor people, attacking welfare, food stamps, unions and whatever remains of programs that help the poor. Worse is the "if your poor it's your fault" line of thinking in the Republican Party.

Ugh the company who did the drug test can't find the results. My work to be called and said they had not heard back with the results. I called the testing place and they said to call the testing company and they can't find my test. I hope I don't have to retake it. I really wanted to start this week. I have jury duty tomorrow so I can't do anything tomorrow probably.

Also Michigan holds it's state senate elections in midterm years only, and 2010 was the last year they were held and that was a republican landslide year. The republicans only held it by 20-18 after 2006 though. The democrats haven't held the Michigan state senate since 1983 when they lost 2 seats in special recall elections due to voting for then governor Blanchard's tax increase.
25  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Census data online on: March 06, 2014, 11:33:43 am
How much pre 1990 census data is online? Especially census tract maps and data. I'm currently visiting the state library and archives for election info. The library has all the census information in books but if it is available on the internet I don't need to scan it. I might just scan it to my flash drive since I'm here and the archives doesn't open until 1pm.
