Darn! Gosh! Golly Ge Whizz! Millennials are maligned?! No shit! Snowflake mal-adjusted brats!
From Seattle Times: Give it a rest, boomers and Xers. Millennials have heard plenty by now about how they’re just the worst generation ever. If their detractors are to be believed, they’re entitled, narcissistic, selfie-taking, self-absorbed, “everyone gets a trophy” brats, and they’re to blame for the demise of everything from cereal, paper napkins and […]

We need to hold these public servants responsible for their attitudes and their failures in their classrooms that we are paying for!
American Federation of Teachers (AFT) describes itself as: The American Federation of Teachers, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO, was founded in 1916 and today represents 1.6 million members in more than 3,000 local affiliates nationwide.

At around 9:58 pm on the night of June 3, 2017, just 12 days after the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, Britain experienced a third terrorist attack of the year when three men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge. Wielding knives, the men left the van and went […]

Why do I say that?
Picture this if you will
I worked for O’Reilly Auto Parts in the Oak Park, MI store #3345 for about 2 1/2 years as a parts pro. But due to a lack of cooperation on their behalf to provide a simple answer to a simple request at the district and regional level and after 48 hours with no response from either , I decided to terminate my employment with them.
This is where it gets odd
During your employment you are given what is called an employee account with which you can purchase your parts at a discount. It falls under the same database as commercial accounts. You can’t have a retail account during your employment. Pretty simple and straight forward right? You can access the account just like any other from any store in the country. Easy.
Well … I have an issue with a battery I purchased in January of 2016. And since it is under warranty, About 6PM I took it to the store at 9 Mile and Coolidge and since it tested bad I was expecting to simply invoke my warranty. They chant that you really don’t need a receipt because it is all doced in the system by name and phone number. Well …No can do.
Poof! It’s gone!
When they attempted to access my employee account by number, lo and behold, the account is gone! 2 1/2 years of parts for a wide variety of vehicles not available! Now let’s look up my phone number. Oops! Nothing there. Let’s try my name. Um …. nope! Oh! Wait! The manager told me he was setting up a commercial account for Bob’s Garage. Let’s try that. Uhhh … this is not good! Nothing!
Basically it appears that I have been wiped off the system! I then ask the manager on duty to contact the store manager, Mr. Rico Pridgeway, to find a solution. it was passed to me that his response was that I would have to wait till the morning because “corporate is closed and all the files are locked up.” Really? When did data files get put away and locked up? And since we are EST 6PM is 3PM LA time. They are still open. It all sounded sketchy to me. Kinda like “I don’t want to deal with this right now“.
I sure hope this is a clerical error! Because if this is the way it works then this is in a very treacherous area of consumer fraud. As a result me and my battery are going to be on Mr. Pridgeway’s doorstep bright and early at 7:30 AM when they open up. I am not in a very good mood right now and I will get a solution. What it is I am not sure. But since I am no longer an employee but a paying customer the texture of my approach can change. I don’t have to be politically correct. Right up my alley!
All I can say is stand by! Film at 11!
Detroit Free Press – June 11
You are now in the hands of ICE
A recent sweep by ICE here in the Detroit metropolitan area netted from reports between 40 to 90 individuals, mostly Chaldean Iraqi’s. But before everyone gets their pantyhose in a knot, keep in mind that despite the fact that they are Iraqi Christians they are [A] here illegally [B] convicted of crimes including homicide, rape, aggravated assault, kidnapping, burglary, drug trafficking, robbery, sex assault, weapons violations and other offenses.
Now they are being transported to Ohio for detention and processing. These are not people we want here. And they are here illegally! The fact that they are all Iraqi Chaldean’s is a technical sidebar but not relevant. And they will be deported as soon as they process them.
No new laws. Just enforcing the old ones!
A point that caught my ears when watching the news report was that the lawyer for some of the detainees made the comment that “they haven’t enforced the law in 50 years!’. And your point is what? Welcome to enforcement as it should be! Now! Not 50 years ago! Once again they play the victim card! The comment was made that some of the crimes were from years ago. True but homicide, rape, aggravated assault, kidnapping, burglary, drug trafficking, robbery, sex assault or weapons violations at any time are a problem! You can’t get here because of them. And they are going to claim that Iraq is “unfriendly” to Christians. True. But that is how they play the victim cards.
But reality sucks. And all this activity by ICE nationwide is a great thing in my book. And we don’t need any new laws, just enforcement of the ones we already have. The fact that Barry Soetoro chose to ignore those laws is now old news. There is a new POTUS and he is enforcing the laws as they stand now. Pretty straightforward really.
So, I have some sympathy but over all I am glad to see the long neglected laws getting enforced. In my own mind I believe that simply enforcing the laws on the books would be sufficient to ease the issues in this country and get us back on track.
Apparently the new twist is ” Will NOT work for food”! And that is just fine with me and the others that are funding these goombas! And the only thing I can add is that how about we toss in mandatory drug testing! Wanna see the roles drop even more?! Just one man’s opinion.

I guess I can now tell my wife I am going to therapy! Don’t think she will buy it but it’s worth a try!
It’s not uncommon for companies to try to finesse their way out of a hefty tax bill, but one Manhattan strip club tried a unique excuse when attempting to skirt $3.1 million in state taxes: Its dancers were providing therapy to customers, and not just entertainment. The New York Daily News reports that the owners of the…
