Turkeys in Maricopa, AZ, Black Friday, Century Link fails to perform and our nation is asleep at the wheel on the hairpin turn into the abyss
On Tuesday, November 26, 2013: From sun up, until they started passing out the turkeys (about 1:00 pm), the "Soup Nazi" and his friends served up chow at the annual tailgate event in downtown Maricopa at the F.O.R./park and ride lot. Coffee, Polish sausage, hot beans, potato salad, cookies and chips were served. This was a "pot luck" thing and my jalapeno beans were to kill for. If you missed this, it will be "No soup for you! Come back 1 year!"
We can't seem to go a year without somebody acting up. A would be line jumper eventually backed down and returned to her proper place in line, but only after being confronted by those in line, before her. I'm still wondering how "#150 something" thinks they are entitled to go before "#1". Certainly, one of the world's unsolved mysteries. So much for being thankful.
I guess getting what I pay for is just way too much to ask for. My home internet keeps cutting out. This happens every time it rains or the wind blows. In southern Arizona, we see little rain, but when it does, forget about using the internet. All it will do is make your blood boil, if you try.
I reluctantly called for assistance and got some foreigner that can't even speak comprehensible English, let alone speak up loud enough for a hearing impaired person (me) to hear and understand. I knew this was coming and that's why I really didn't want to call. I knew this would happen. It always does. I honestly believe this is part of their "brick wall" strategy. The customer is supposed to take their lumps and walk away.
Then, the incompetent agent, having absolutely no clue what to do himself, wants to send (passing the buck) another more than likely incompetent agent to my home and charge me for the visit. Hello!!! The problem is not in my home. Again, we have a clueless person in charge of helping the customer. My neighbor, three doors down the street, didn't have service, either. Obviously, the problem was with the phone jack, inside my home and not the jackass at Century Link.
By the looks of the other Facebook comments, nothing has improved, since my last problem (last January). I see words like "horrendous", "unacceptable" and "worst" used with such frequency as to convince me that no matter what the agents do, it will be far below any minimal expectations I may have. Sadly, cable is not available in the rural area I reside in or Century Link would have been kicked to the curb, long ago. After all, everybody hates the phone company. They are a greedy and soulless institution that knows it can walk all over everybody and get away with it.
If phone companies did have a soul or any sense of decency, they would not have freely given up our phone records to the NSA, without a search warrant. In fact, I think phone companies are about as anti-American as one could possibly get. I'm sure that their executives will be dangling from light standards following our nation's inevitable collapse. They deserve it.
At what point can we finally classify the NSA as nothing more than a criminal organization? Sadly, people are too distracted by their favorite sports team to care. They are obsessed with depraved celebrities, acting like royalty. They are engrossed in materialism, gossip, and mindless distractions. They are glued to the plague known as "Reality TV." They could not care less about politics, the direction of the country, or the injustices that go on every day. They are totally asleep to reality.
NSA pledges to expand powers in document released by Edward Snowden
The document also lays out other sweeping ambitions, including the ability to acquire the data the agency needs from “anyone, anytime, anywhere.” and to try to decrypt or bypass codes that keep communications secret by influencing “the global commercial encryption market through commercial relationships,” human spies and intelligence partners in other countries. It also vowed to “revolutionize” analysis of its vast data collection programs to “radically increase operational impact.” Full Article
At the time of our nation's founding, we were a population of overwhelming European descent. Identity was not a problem. Subsequent waves of immigration destabilized the "American Identity". Following World War Two, White solidarity was demonized and in 1965 massive non-White immigration began.
Today, the conditions for the emergence of a "White American Identity" are good. We are attacked as a race and Whites are aware that they are tied together by blood (Although, for the time being this is perceived as a bad thing). Before we Americans can fight back, we must identify as a community with a common identity.
Black Friday is the mass retailer's attempt to totally obliterate Thanksgiving and they are being very successful. They have destroyed Christmas by making it a consumer driven event instead of the holy day it is. By destroying Thanksgiving, a truly American holiday and a religious holiday first started by the Pilgrims, they will further destroy the culture that is unique to this nation. And the media is helping them see that through.
"I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables - slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war... Our great depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won't. We're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off." --Tyler Durden
