I posted this on my facebook page today.
AAA So I had to like your page in order to convey the message of how disappointed I am with your service. Unfortunately I can’t dislike your page and tag you in posts that debase you and your poor level of service. So my liking your page is a lie I used just to be able to tag you.
AAA I can deal with being left in as parking lot for 3 plus hours if it was just myself. It was however also my wife and 3 year old daughter. This information was conveyed in the first call and all the other calls I made after to try and figure out what was going on. This could have been fixed very readily with a locksmith. However you failed to be able get one who would service the vehicle that evening. Most likely because as I am learning companies no longer want to do business with you. So after several failed attempts to get a locksmith. I said can you at least get us towed home. You failed on the first attempt and when I called back to find out what was going on your operator put me on hold for fifteen minutes. I was upset when she finally got back because I literally felt she had forgotten about us. She said I had to place you on a brief hold and that I should nor be so upset. Newsflash 15 minutes in cold weather is a long time. I reminded her that I have a 3 year old here. She said that was not in the information. I have been on the phone 6-8 times with AAA by then and mentioned it each time. I finally called my brother in law who came and got my wife and child because basically your operator said they had no way to help us and AAA would reimburse us. When I finally do guilt an operator to get us a truck. I mention I am in a parking lot with 50,000 other cars as I did when we agreed to get a tow truck after your failed attempts to get a locksmith. You remember the locksmith that is what started this whole thing. So what arrives. A flatbed big enough to haul a train on. Fortunately the driver was skilled and I made sure no parked on either side of the car. Thankfully my brother in law took my wife and daughter home so I could deal with the tow truck. My brother in law showed up when he said he was going to. The tow driver and I managed to get the car loaded while blocking most of the exit route for other cars in that route but it was the only way we could got the tow truck. 4 hours later after this started I signed the paperwork indicating my car was home. Now today instead of doing the work I had scheduled I will be finding a locksmith. Remember that was the original issue. AAA you need to become familiar with the word contrition. There are dictionaries all over the internet to help you with that.
Mike Roselle is a very cool guy who has done some amazing things. Not the least of which is creating Earth First. We all are entitled to be disappointed by our heroes. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate Mike, I am just disappointed.
Mike basically goes off on Bill Mahrer a comedian who has some very strong anti religious points of view. Yesterday 2 muslims shot dead 12 people at a satire news publication in France. Mike decided to trash Bill and his anti religious views. Unfortunately the exchange makes Mike look bad and most of his commenters look like uniformed idiots that are the stereotype of the treehugger movement.
No the atheists are not responsible for the greatest mass murders out there. Yes religion has lead to some of the greatest atrocities in history.
No I do not support religion.
Once again an anti government wing nut on facebook doesn’t get it. The government doesn’t do anything for him. He receives no benefits from government at all, he claims. It is this level of cluelessness that makes me glad that they are revamping the school system. He apparently removed the comment before my reply could be posted.
Except for the time he killed the fig tree for not blooming for him out of season Mark 11:12-14
And that peacemaker stuff, not so much.
Or the time he stole a donkey
Luke 19: 28-34
Or a bit of bigotry against Canaanites
Matthew 15: 22-26
So the right wing news has put forth another falsehood. This time I took the screen shot after posting my reply
What my reply was.
Wow! Let’s look at this misleading picture. Now lets get some facts.
1) According to 2014 Census Data there are 206,072,000 registered voters in the US.
2) Cost to get a voter registration in the US $0.00
3) States that won’t allow you to vote with your voters registration? 20.
4) India requires you to fill out a form 6 in order to get a voter ID. You can see one here.
5) Cost for filling out a Form 6? $0
6) Number of provinces in India that require Real ID or something other than a voter ID? 0.
7) In the US the Real ID laws are now being stuck down by judges as suppressive. The federal judge in the Wisconsin case said the following in her ruling.
“But no matter how imprecise my estimate may be, it is absolutely clear that Act 23 will prevent more legitimate votes from being cast than fraudulent votes.”
The facts are quite simple the republican party doesn’t want the poor, elderly, or non whites to vote. They have shown that time and time again with things like the Real ID laws the limiting of early voting, and the restrictions on registering to vote. If they could find a way to strike down the 19th amendment they would
The simple fact is that the right wing does not want to raise the minimum wage because it would get people off of government programs like Snap, and welfare. If the right wing complains about those programs they can cut those programs without having to cut wages.
The right wing has no interest in helping others, especially others who are not rich.
So this was another of those ridiculous facebook posts that was put up where it seems no one actually knows what the bible says. Once again it is my job to correct them. This was my response.
Ah yes, the hypocrisy of the moderate christian and the new testament. Let’s look at what comes from the new testament.
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.“
That does not sound like a renouncing of old laws it sounds like a confirmation of them.
It is very nice to see that many Christians are coming around on the gay marriage issue. Much like they did on interracial marriage and slavery. Here in Florida and many other states the law that was passed that recognized marriage as one man and one woman was done because of popular vote. The difference between the westboro baptist church and the “moderate christian” who voted for the one man one woman amendment, a lack of a God Hates Fags sign. The one thing that has made me strive for hope is that the check and balance of the government actually seems to be working in that the courts recognize the stupidity and repression by large groups of people and are choosing to reject it. Hopefully Scalia will be the only dissenting voice when it does finally come before SCOTUS.
I am sorry if this is not the positive reinforcement you came here looking for but the ugly side of this hasn’t gone away. They are still sending kids to reeducation camps and gay therapy programs. In lieu of that they are kicking them out of the house and on the street. The wonderful example of Christian love and forgiveness. Ah yes but that is not you. You are different. Excuse me if I look at the actions and not the words.
