Put up or shut up

I'm so glad that our capitalistic, free-market creates such corporate competition that customer service in the States is the best in the world... nay, best in the Universe.

Why, just yesterday I spent 5 hours (the record is 6 hours) on the phone with Sprint attempting to fix my internet card, because the problem had to be on my end, just HAD to be, only to be informed this morning that 3 towers are down in my location.

Fuck Sprint, those incompetent bastards.

What Ebert says:

Put up or shut up - Roger Ebert's Journal


Obama's continuing rehabilitate-the-NeoCons fetish continues its destructive force.

Weak and wrong. Weak and wrong.

Maddow blasts Obama for praising Bush, letting WMD liars ‘get off easy’ | Raw Story:
"'I think we shouldn't get past how remarkable it is how much the proponents of the Iraq war are getting off easy here,' Maddow said to MSNBC's Keith Olbermann immediately following the speech.

'And to to have in this speech, as combat operations are ending, to have, as you point out Keith, the president not only not addressing the circumstances in which he we went to war, but these kind words for President Bush, describing his commitment to our security, despite the recklessness with which President Bush discarded that national security in favor of this war of choice, which only diminished our security, and is responsible probably for the Afghanistan war still going on today, for the depths of people who have died in Afghanistan after the time, after which that war would have ended had we not gone to Iraq, not to mention all of the people who died in Iraq,' Maddow continued."

Obama's scared the GOP Daddies will be made at him if he doesn't include worthless tax cuts which will not do one goddamn thing to improve the economy. Spend and spend big or just shut the fuck up so we can elect someone with balls and sense in 2012.

Tax cuts do not grow the economy. Never have, never will.

Tax Cuts, Infrastructure Spending Weighed to Spur Economy -
"The Obama administration is considering a range of new measures to boost economic growth, including tax cuts and a new nationwide infrastructure program, according to people familiar with the discussions."

Shocking that the people who rule use aren't suffering. Remember when we had a viable middle class. Yeah, remember. Awww. Functioning democracies are cute. Like, baby seal cute... and Republicans and Blue Dog Dems are the club.

Wealthy lawmakers increased their riches as U.S. economy sputtered in '09 -
"The wealthiest members of Congress grew richer in 2009 even as the economy struggled to recover from a deep recession.

The 50 wealthiest lawmakers were worth almost $1.4 billion in 2009, about $85.1 million more than 12 months earlier, according to The Hill’s annual review of lawmakers’ financial disclosure forms."
