It’s Sunday, Time For The IWA (Idiot of the Week Award}

Hey folks,

The IWA goes to,,,,The manager, CEO, or whatever, of Alarm One Inc. Why? Because of the stupidity that costed them $1.7 million dollars.

You know, in today’s society, if a male walks into a room where there is female co-works and says”Hey guys, what’s up?” he can be fined for sexual harassment. I’ll never forget being told by a lawyer friend, that the difference between flirting and sexual harassment, is if the person likes you, it’s flirting, if they don’t then it’s sexual harassment.

Well it seems that Alarm One Inc had a policy where if you were late for a meeting, you got SPANKED. Literally.

The employee Janet Orlando, 53, said she was embarrassed, permanently scarred and mentally anguished by the spanking for being late for a sales meeting. The jury agreed BIG time with her. The jury initially awarded her $500,000 in compensatory damages for lost wages, emotional distress and medical expenses. After further deliberation, the jury added another $1.2 million in punitive damages.

Lawyers are quoted as saying this will make it a safer work environment nationwide. Uh, when was the last time you were spanked at work? Apparently this was an on going practice for Alarm One Inc. Two other people sued as well but settled out of court. Bet they are kicking themselves.

Congratulations to the Fresno office, of Alarm One Inc. You are this weeks winner.

Truly Doing Something, or Appearances?

Hey folks,

Here is an interesting story. A slice of real life and sign of the times. But I have some MAJOR questions about this one. I’m currently attempting to get the gentleman to tell his story with us directly. If I get to contact him, and he agrees, I will post the interview with him here. But here is the story.

I was listening to the “Love Doctors” on WZZR 94.3 on Thursday. This guy calls in and tells his story. He says he is a General Contractor that was just raided and arrested. His house, cars, and work vehicles were seized, fined $300,000.00, and is facing five to ten years. His crime? He hire illegal immigrants.

He stated that he KNEW he was doing the wrong thing. He said, “I rolled the dice and lost.” He had six illegals working for him. He was fined $50,000.00 a head. Since he did not have the money readily available, they sized his property. Personal and business.

Now he was not complaining. He was warning other contractors out there that they should think twice. I have a hard time feeling sorry for this gentleman, and he is not looking for sympathy. I do feel the penalty is a little excessive. But as he said, he knew he was doing the wrong thing, he got caught, and now he is going to pay.

Here is one of MANY questions I have about this. What about the Orange Groves here is Florida? What about the other area’s where “Americans couldn’t or wouldn’t” do the jobs? Why the little guy? OH yeah, silly me, I forgot, it’s an election year. They have to APPEAR to being doing something. So they will nail this Contractor to the wall.

It’s this simple, what happens if this Contractor goes out of business or to jail? The person who’s house he was working on will have to find someone else to finish. A set back for the homeowner,,wait,,maybe not. You know now that I think about it, the homeowner may even get help from the government because of this. Hmmm..

Why not the Orange Groves? Because that would cost the state of Florida millions. Same thing anywhere else. Most average Joe Americans are fed up with this whole situation. Both sides have to appear to be doing something about it. So they go after someone, no dis-respect intended here, who really means nothing in the big picture. It is an appearance thing. That’s it.

If the Government was truly serious about this, they would do more about closing the boarders. They would NOT be passing proposals to REWARD the criminals.

Like I said, I would love for this gentleman to tell us his story, and answer some curiosity questions. He did not give out his number when he called in. I KNOW Jason has it on caller ID but with out him giving Clear Channel, “The Love Doctors”, or WZZR, permission, they cannot give it out to anyone. But it still maybe possible. I just TRULY find this story interesting. I’ll update with any NEW information.

Could We Have? Or Fuel For Bush?

Hey Folks,

More fuel for President Bush? This is not a good thing. Could we have the world community getting ready to back us? I doubt it. But this is not a good sign.

President Bush said, “It's very important for the Iranians to understand there is a common desire by a lot of nations in this world to convince them, peacefully convince them, that they ought to give up their weapons ambitions.”

He says he wanted a peaceful resolution to prevail but would, of course, not rule out a possible nuclear air strike. Interestingly enough even FRANCE is on board for this one. The United States is backed by Britain and France for limited sanctions if Iran refuses to shelve enrichment quickly.

What I warned you about before Russia is not. As a mater of fact, Russia and China, the Security Council's other two veto-holding permanent members who want to protect lucrative stakes in Iran's energy sector, have so far opposed such moves. As I pointed out Russia outright warned the US against it.

The report by Mohamed ElBaradei, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said, “The Agency is unable to make progress in its efforts to provide assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran,” and “The existing gaps in knowledge continue to be a matter of concern. Any progress in that regard requires full transparency and active cooperation by Iran.” They said that not only did Iran ignore the U.N. Security Council call to suspend uranium enrichment, but is speeding up its program instead.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran would disregard any U.N. measure to rein in its nuclear project and withstand its opponents. He actually said, ‘Those who want to prevent Iranians from obtaining their right, should know that we do not give a damn about such resolutions.”

So we have more and more countries lining up against Iran, the UN being ignored, now a dare to see what the lame duck UN will do. If the UN DOES take action, what will be Russia, and China’s response? What will President Bush do? If military action DOES take place, who will jump into the fray? Which side? We DO live in scary times.

Pro-criminals?

Hey folks,

If you live in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Tucson, Phoenix, or Fresno, I got good news for you. You can stay home May 1st. That’s right, no work or school. Why? Because they will be shut down. This according to Jorge Rodriguez, a union official who helped organize earlier rallies. Yes folks, stay home. No point in going. They will be shut down for the day.

OK, Back to reality. I’ll be going to work, just like you. The cities will be open. Things could however get difficult, but I assure you the cities will be open as usual. I haven’t really commented on this in detail. For one, I do not see the problem. If you come here through the proper channels, come here legally, and do the right thing, I say GREAT. Welcome. If you come here illegally, dis-respect and dis-regard our laws, then try to strong arm us into accepting you, you get deported. If you disrupt normal life for those who are trying to do the right thing, you go to jail. What’s the problem? OH!!!! I see, it’s an election year. Political Correctness raising it’s ugly head yet again. This is just completely stupid.

Mr. Rodriguez said, “There will be 2 to 3 million people hitting the streets in Los Angeles alone. We're going to close down Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Tucson, Phoenix, Fresno. We want full amnesty, full legalization for anybody who is here (illegally). That is the message that is going to be played out across the country on May 1.”

Then you have the state senate in California today, passing a resolution recognizing “The Great American Boycott of 2006,” 24-13 along party lines They say that this would educate the United States about the contributions made by immigrants. Are you completely out of your mind? Some in this country have completely lost it. I agree with the dissenting Republicans that argue it sanctioned lawbreaking and encouraged children to skip school. But breaking the laws and skipping school is not important. Awarding new voters,,,uh,,I mean criminals,,no wait,,I mean poor oppressed people. Wait, what are we calling them today?

This “Shut down” of cities will fail. Trying to strong arm the government to award criminals is moronic. To allow this to happen is even more so. Then, for some of our law makers, to not only encourage this type of idiocy, but to REWARD it? When did it become PC to break our laws?

What is interesting though, you may indeed have the day off. Cargill Inc., Tyson Foods Inc and Seaboard Corp are among some that said they WILL close. Is this because they are for this? I doubt it. I bet it’s because they feel it safer, and nothing will get done, so why bother.

This is the type of thing that just simply hurts my head to think about it. The rules are simple. But the Left and Liberals are doing what they normally do. Throw out the rules for their agenda. The Right tries to come up with a plan to fix it, but they are wrong also. They are trying the same thing. Throw out the rules. Too many people are just lost for an answer. The damage is done. Millions of illegal immigrants ARE here. I say fine. Let’s secure our borders, lets deal with those we come across. Perhaps with them paying a penalty through taxation. Let them EARN their “right” to be here. Let’s NOT encourage, sanction, or reward law breaking. Let’s ENFORCE the laws we already have.

Ever Increasing Gas Price


Hey folks,

You know as time goes on, the gas prices go up, my anger goes up as well. I’m not alone by any means. EVERYONE is upset. I have so many thought about this that I could hardly fit them into one article. So this will be an on going, as it has been, series of articles. I still hold very firm on some of my original beliefs, but the more I research this situation, the more some of my beliefs change.

First, FACT. AFVs (Alternative Fuel Vehicles) and Afs themselves, are continuing to be on the rise. More and more companies are working on these. More and more people are buying them. Along with an increase in Motorcycle sales. People are getting to that point where enough is enough. But is some of this anger mis-lead?

Now we have President Bush calling for an investigation. He announced today a series of short-term steps that he said might slightly ease energy prices, including a suspension of government purchases to refill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and investigations into possible price gouging and price fixing.

I got some bad news for my Republican friends. Them calling for this, is a PROBLEM for them. Here’s why. First, you HAVE to lay some of the blame on the Left. It is THEIR policies that have prevented us from gaining independence from foreign oil. It is THEIR fault, because of their insane environmental mumbo jumbo. That’s a whole other article. But NOW they are calling for the President to do something? Then you have the Republicans, who admit that their power to hold down or reduce gasoline prices was limited. One of the reason for this? How about the fact that the Federal Government makes almost 5 times as much as the oil companies in taxes per gallon. On average the tax across the country is .50 cents a gallon. Who is gouging who Mr. President?

Look folks. I hate the fact that the big oil companies make HUGH windfall profits. But THEY actually GIVE you something. The Federal Government doesn’t. They just take. Big Oil is in this for profit. They can and will cost themselves out of business. But for the Federal Government, me, or anyone else, to put ALL the blame on Big Oil is wrong. Big Oil doesn’t even set the price.

President Bush said today, “Our strategic reserve is sufficiently large enough to guard against any major supply disruption over the next few months,” he said, “So by deferring deposits until the fall we'll leave a little more oil on the market.”adding “Every little bit helps.” How about calling for a state of emergency and remove the Federal tax. Ask all Governors to do the same on the state level. Right there the price would come down .50 cents.

Both sides are playing politics on this one. The Democrats and Liberals have made us handicapped, and dependant on foreign oil, now they are saying, like everything else, this is Bush’s fault. According The Associated Press, Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland said, "What happened to Iraq oil, Mr. President? You said Iraqi oil would pay for the war,” she added. “Ain't seen no money. Ain't seen no oil.” Oh yeah, the War was about oil. Wait, no oil? Where’s the oil? Never WAS about the oil. Has nothing to do with the rising prices. Just politics.

What is the answer? My Liberal friends do not want to hear it. But it is true. We NEED to continue to produce and reduce the prices on AFs and AFVs . We NEED to start producing our own oil. Build some more refineries, drill HERE and off the coast. Get out from under the control of foreign oil.

The concept that vehicles are a luxury, and not a necessity, is both incorrect and un-just. When did it become a luxury to be able to drive to the store, beach, your JOB? When did it become a privilege for the rich? A liberal friend of mine says that it IS a luxury. If they cannot afford the increasing gas, let them take the transit. OK. $5.00 each way, 5 days a week for the bus. “Susy”, a single Mother of two, has to spend $50.00 a week, two hundred dollars a month for the bus. Just to go to work? Then you have to add in trips to the store, paying bills, whatever.

The point is, if we could change the classification of vehicles to be necessaries, then we could be talking a whole other issue. Fuel costs could then be regulated better. “Susy” would then be able to cope better with the ever raising costs.

Try as hard as some have, and I’m sure will, to convince me that having your own transportation is a luxury, I truly feel that you MUST see vehicle ownership as a necessity. It’s hard enough for some to make it paycheck to paycheck, not to add to it a never ending rise in cost to get to work and back. Just my honest opinion. With the gap growing between the classes, vehicle ownership should not be seen as one side or the other. It should be for all.

There is no quick solution to this problem. The fault does not lie totally on the door step of Big Oil, the Left, or President Bush. Only together can we solve this problem and make it better for America and ALL who find having a vehicle a necessity.

Democrats At It Again,

Hey folks,

Here we go again. Here is yet ANOTHER example of WHY most people in the middle and right, are getting sick of the left playing their games. Not to mention, the games NEVER win. They only bring to light the idiocies of the Far Left Fringes.

The poster child for the Left Looneys, Howard Dean, doing it again in shining example form. In stead of working with people, trying to build a base, trying to bring others on board, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean, is widening the gap. He told the Christian Science Monitor on Wednesday, that the religious community needs to "decide whether they want to be tax exempt or involved in politics."

Joseph Cella, president of Fidelis, a Catholic-based advocacy organization, said, "Howard Dean's statement makes it clear that he wants to muzzle America's churches and religious groups from professing what they believe on important issues facing our society" and, "When it comes to debates over public policy and issues, Dean should be welcoming the voice of America's churches, not attempting to silence them." He added, "Instead, Dean has shown utter disregard for people of faith by threatening the historical and treasured role of religious groups and churches in American public life."

Why is this important? Because of Dean’s OWN words. In 2004 Dean sold signs saying "Dean for America" They also said "perfect for church"

In February 2005, Dean said, "We are definitely going to do religious outreach. Even in my campaign, I was interested in reaching out to evangelicals," Dean reportedly told Christianity Today, adding that "our religious outreach will not solely be to evangelical Christians but to Americans of all faiths."

In July 2005, Dean told the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME), "Decency, lifting up our fellow man, bringing hope to those left out of the process and ensuring that our nation's prosperity is shared by all, these are things that the African Methodist Episcopal Church has stood for, and these are things that Democrats stand for." He commended them saying "Finally, I want to commend the AME on the creation of the AME V-Alert initiative. There is no democratic right more basic to our democracy than the power of the vote."

So what happened? Does the reaching out go against the "Hate Bush" agenda? Yep. You have to denounce those ignorant Christian folks, you know, the simpleton folks like President Bush.

Cella said, "Dean's blatant hostility toward any church or religious group calls into serious question his supposed outreach to values voters following the 2004 elections," continuing "In essence, Dean is saying that if religious groups want to continue to speak out, then the hand of government is going to exact a penalty. Comments such as these continue to place Howard Dean and the Democratic Party in jeopardy of further alienating religious voters"

Of corse the DNC couldn’t be reached for comment. Way to bring more votes to your party there Howie.

The Idiot Award of the Week,

Hey folks,


The Idiot Award of the week goes to,,actually two people.

Did you here about the 76 year old pervert who went door to door pretending to be a doctor? He was offering free breast exams. Only in Florida. But he is not the award winner. It is the two women who AGREED and ACCEPTED the exam.

I know, I know. You are going to say, if you haven’t seen this article, that I am mean for picking on these poor, older women. WRONG. HE is 76. They are in their 30s.

What gave him away? After the man asked her to remove all her clothes, which she DID, one of the women became suspicious when he began conducting a purported genital exam without donning rubber gloves. LOL.

Ok, lets analyze this for a second. A stranger comes to your door. Tells you he is a doctor. Offers you a free breast exam. Tells you to undress. You DO. Then, you find it odd that he did not put on rubber gloves? That was the Only thing that you found odd?

Congratulation you BOTH receive the Idiot of the Week Award.. Good Job.

Antepenultimate Power / Utter Destruction

Hey folks,

I have been told that I’m too hard on the Liberals and the Left. I’ve been called a hate monger, Republican Radical, "one of those" Christian "Looneys", etc It doesn’t matter how many times I say I’m an Independent, the Left just cannot stand the fact I tell the truth about the failures and idiocies of the fridge’s actions. Since I speak out against them, TRY to help them, do not blindly follow their lead and drink the cool aid, I must be a Conservative Christian Right Wing Radical. Wrong. But, they will believe as they do.

One of the reasons I TRY to help the Left is the fact, we live in dangerous times. They are getting worse. Please HEAR what I’m saying here. Forget what you may or may not think of my political affiliation. Just listen.

As we speak, we are moving ever so closer to Iran. Now even Sen. Joseph Lieberman says he would back a U.S. air strike on Iran's nuclear facilities if diplomatic options fail, becoming the first Democrat to announce his support for such a move. He said, "I think the only justifiable use of military power would be an attempt to deter the development of their nuclear program if we felt there was no other way to do it," He indicated that such an attack would be to "delay" Iran's nuclear program, saying that he was hoping that "by the time they catch up back to where they were, there's been a change in the government. That's the limited objective that I would see." This is in response to Iranian President Mamoud Ahmadinejad, threatened just last week to "annihilate" Israel. The movement is growing.

Meanwhile, in the rest of the world, we have Russia supplying Iran with materials, the North Korea situation, China and Taiwan situation, and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Wednesday again raised the specter of U.S. designs to oust him and promised that his government will blow up his country's oil fields if the United States should ever attack.. Couple this all together with a President with a Cowboy, renegade attitude, with a free pass to do whatever he wants, you have a VERY dangerous situation. Are we heading to WW3?

The only way to stop this, or at least slow it down, is to bring balance back to the government. With only 199 days left to the election, and two and halve years til 2008, the left is running out of time. They NEED to stop playing the stupid games. They NEED to forget Bush. Get in there and change the things you do not like. With the House, Senate, and even Supreme Court all controlled by one party, the party has antepenultimate power. I would feel this way no matter which party is in this situation. There must be a balance. In nearly every case, ultimate power leads to ultimate destruction. But the Left is NOT going to get there with "Hate Bush". They are not going to get there with "Impeach Bush". They are not going to get there without a plan.

If it seems I’m being too critical of the Left from time to time, it is because I AM. As an Independent, I am not bound by political parties. Nor am I a sheep that will jump aboard a bandwagon. You need to talk TO me and tell me what you can do to make this country better. So far, NOTHING. Time is ticking, in more ways than one.

Last Example. New stuff SOON.

Gays in History

Hey Folks,

Here’s one of those articles that will upset many of my friends. It will upset my gay friends, liberal friends, and will most definitely upset my friends on the far right. But this is really an interesting, pointless, and very dangerous situation. I am 100% against this proposal, but maybe not for the reasons you think.

The proposed bill in California, which the state Senate Judiciary Committee passed on Tuesday by a 3-1 vote with only Republican Senate leader Dick Ackerman opposed, if passed by the state Legislature, would require school textbooks to include lessons on how gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender persons have helped California develop. The proponents say that history books record contributions by gays but their sexual orientation is often ignored.

So what? Let’s say for a second that George Washington was gay. First, prove it. Second, let’s just say he was, does that in any way change ANYTHING that he did? No. So other than the shear political aspect, it would be pointless to add that to the history book. Here is and has ALWAYS been one of my biggest problems with the whole gay-rights advocate’s political agendas. Why do I have to know who you are sleeping with? Do you know who I am? Why is it wrong for me to "flaunt" my "straightness", but ok for you to "flaunt" your "gayness"?

Karen England of the conservative Capitol Resource Institute said, "This bill would also prohibit anything that reflects adversely on those people," she added, "They're after their lifestyle to be embraced and they want to force it on kids as young as kindergarten."

You can bet that MANY on the right will be fighting this til the end. Why? For one thing, California is the biggest U.S. market for school textbooks. Also this will open doors for some other states to follow suite.

For those who truly know me knows how I feel about the whole homosexual topic. I have and have had many homosexual friends. In NY I had friends who are a gay couple that had been together for 30 years. One a artist and one a lawyer. My best friend is a lesbian. Believe it or not, they have never tried to convert me, jump me, never have they passed on any diseases to me, nor do I fear them destroying my life by their mere existence. I am in NO way "homophobic". The way I look at it, it doesn’t effect me in anyway, nor do I care who they take behind closed doors. But just like many organized religions out there, I do not want you shoving it down my throat, telling me that I have to accept it, and creating laws forcing it to be accepted. I most definitely do not want you shoving it down my kids throat in school.

This is just another example of even MORE special interest groups trying to get into the schools. Like I’ve said before, he who controls the minds of the youth, controls the future. We cannot teach our kids what they need to know NOW, without shoving a political agenda into the curriculum. We need to get special interest OUT of the schools, and put the basics back in.

More Examples

The Lost Art of Customer Service

Hey folks,

As you know I just returned from Tallahassee. I do not know if this is a discussional (?) topic or not, I’ll get back to the news analysis and discussion soon, but I felt I had to share. For those of you who may own small businesses or those who want to get ahead, trust me on this one..

I’ve been a Mobile man for years. I ‘m very much against the BOCs oil practices, as we been discussing, however, I love the mini-mart part of business. I’ve been in quite a lot of them from Newport Road Island to Florida. Now I’ve tried others. Hess, 7-11, etc. But I always went back to Mobile "on the runs". Got to have my 3 pots of coffee a day you know.

It was the coffee, the wide range of products they offer, but most of all, it was and is because of customer service.

In Tallahassee, much to my disheartenment, I found there to be one Mobile. Not really much to offer. But wait,,,around the corner,,I found A mini-mart I never heard of,, Gate. I will be returning to Gate EVERY TIME I go to Tallahassee.

Look, it really is this simple folks, customer service. I pulled up to the pump. I was greeted warmly. I walked in the store, I was verbally embraced with warmth and even a little humor. I Looked around inside and found the vast array of products and services. GOOD coffee. The first day I was there I dropped about fifty dollars inside and forty dollars at the pumps. They even sold hard boiled eggs at the registers. Yes you heard correctly. Hard boiled eggs. .29 cents each. I had three. I know how it may sound, but it was really good.

There was a line of people coming and going. I commented how busy they were and the attendant that just instantly made me feel welcome, told me oh, this is actually slow. If that was slow I would hate to see it busy. Why??? Why are they so busy? CUSTOMER SERVICE. I do not believe I saw anything like a management symbol. Just someone who LIKES dealing with people. Someone who KNOWS what they are doing,. Likes what they are doing. Is just simply, a natural..Or has been in the business for a while. You really cannot teach the service she gave me. She knew how to read me. Knew how far she could go with the joking. It was NOT honey and baby. It was TRUE caring and service.

I made it a point a while ago, to NOT go somewhere twice if I have a bad experience. Drives my wife nuts sometimes. But If you provide me with good customer service, you have a loyal customer. From Hotels, restaurants, shopping establishments, whatever. Good customer service is what keeps me coming back. Great customer service will get me talking about you.

If you are ever in the Tallahassee area, or if you live anywhere near a Gate, I strongly encourage you to check them out. Gate has a customer in my for life...maybe even more so then Mobile.

Words of Wisdom Two is All You Need

Hey Folks, 218 days til judgement day. About 948 days till the big one. For my friends on the left, I got two words for you..

First, allow me to introduce myself. I am IT. I am the one with the power to make or break you. I am the one that you HAVE to communicate with ME. Me and the millions out there exactly like me. The Independent Thinkers. Being an IT, this means that we are independent voters. Not beholden to any one party or person. I have been saying this for years. For some reason, the left just do not get it. There is not enough Right Wing Radicals or Left Wing Looneys to win ANY election. You NEED us.

I said this 6 years ago, 2 years ago, all throughout the past 2 years, and will most likely say it many more times in the future. You need to have a clear, understandable and attainable plan. I’ve said "Hate Bush" doesn’t work. It never did. Tell me what you can and are going to do to make this country better? What are you going to do if you are given the opportunity? As of yet, til this very day, I have not received an answer.

On top of the "Plan", the left also needs a new face. Not leftover, rehashed, same old, same old, with all that baggage. Every time I see Hillary, or Gore on TV, I cringe. Oh and when did Hillary stop talking about "separation of church and state" and start quoting the Bible? Wrongly I might add. Oh yeah, it’s an election year. They need a new face. Who ever heard of Bill Clinton before he ran? Get the point?

Here are the only two words of wisdom that the left needs to win the next election, which would put them on the fast track to the White House in 2008. Two words will help them to bring back some sort balance to the government. Are you ready? Are you sure? Now listen very carefully. I know this may be hard for some to understand. "Forget Bush"...

President Bush is NOT going to be impeached, thrown out of office, or anything else. But I’ve got good news for my friends on the left. He cannot stay there either. He IS leaving in 2008. With his approval rating at the lowest it ever has been, and with 218 days to the next election, you need to forget Bush, and concentrate on getting in to make the changes you want to make. You do not like the way this government is working? Get in and change it. But you have to get in first. "Hate Bush" doesn’t work. Why not try "Forget Bush". Nothing lasts forever. Bush is out. Forget him. Work on getting YOU in. It really is that simple. Who do YOU want in? Why? Simple questions. To bad it’s so hard for some to answer..

Welcome to the OPN. The Our oPinion Network. Opntalk is currently one of the main home bases, if you will, for the OPN. My name is Peter Carlock. I have ALWAYS believed that everyone has an opinion, and EVERY opinion counts. It really is a simple philosophy. Unlike some of the other outlets out there, like Hannity, Rush, or "Washington Journal", even "The Factor", you have to get past call screeners. If you are lucky enough to do that, then you have to deal with the host, where in some cases, makes it seem as if you do not have a degree, kiss their ass, or just agree, then your opinion doesn’t matter. This is simply not true.
Look, the rich and famous may sit on top of the world, but in reality, it is you, the average Joe, that makes things work. It is the office worker, Firefighter, Police Officers, sanitation workers, etc. It is NOT the rich and famous that protect us, help us, make the world a safer place. Yes, the rich may sit on top of the world, but WE are what makes the world go around.
I will be writing articles commenting on the news and current events. I will be discussing personal observations. I will even share personal information from time to time. If you like what you read, leave a comment. Let me know you were here. If you dis-like something you read here, then leave a comment. I WANT some to dis-agree. Dis-agreement turns into discussions. Discussions and an intellectual exchange of thoughts is how we learn. Just want to bitch? Bring it on. Feel free to comment about ANYTHING. There is no censorship here. Just remember. An offense is only offensive if it is taken as such. Choose not to be, and you cannot be offended.
Look for new stuff to be posted soon.
Peter
