Bad Moves


Who Are You California?  You vote to raise taxes on yourself again?  Really?  It’s another easy way out for politicians on our backs.  How does the majority not see it?  I’m speechless and disappointed, and question what’s going on in my native state.

Why are non-citizen rights becoming more important than the rights of US citizens and protection of all?  I concede no argument for it.  Jerry Brown and Antonio Villaraigosa aren’t working for you and here’s another example — When caught at a DUI Checkpoint, unlicensed drivers may soon be allowed to telephone another to pick up his/her vehicle instead of having it impounded.  We, licensed drivers aren’t allowed that luxury.  How is that logical or fair?  Let’s get them driving again without a license (and possibly drunk) asap.  It just doesn’t make sense.  Please consider your votes Californians.  Why these two clowns (and others similarly situated) over and over?  And bravo to those who draw attention to bad political maneuvers like this.

Capitalism gave you a job!  Don’t you get it?  Wall Street certainly isn’t perfect, but it’s their Washington bedfellows that have created much of the economic problems we’re facing today.  Instead, Occupy Washington, DC to compel Politicians to fix the problems with Wall Street, etc.  Tell them to stop cozying up to the detriment of the American people.  I’m sure many Politician are relieved to see Occupy Wall Street’s misdirected anger.  From what I’ve seen and heard, much of the protesters don’t even know what they’re fighting for.  The movement takes the real focus off bad political decisions and “crony” capitalism.

Where is the incentive for legal immigration?  Can anyone answer that?  There’s plenty of incentive for illegal immigration.  Does that seem right?  It doesn’t.  And it’s not.

There is nothing to think or talk about, nothing to study or review, nothing to listen to or acknowledge — The answer should still be NO.  No new or extended taxes, fees or charges should be assigned to the American people.  We’re taxed enough and the money is being wasted.  Agreeing to pay more allows the waste to continue unchecked.  Tell the Politicians to stop asking for more and start doing their jobs right.  We employ them.

As an Affiliate of Amazon’s Associates Program, I received the following e-mail.  Once again Politicians are hard at work quashing our ability to earn a living, because it’s easier to assess fees, taxes, tolls and tariffs than it is to do their respective jobs — It’s a continued grab and waste game that needs to stop.  Though Amazon’s decision has a direct impact on me, I applaud them for immediately dropping out.  What other business is it going to kill?

Hello. Unfortunately Governor Brown has signed into law the bill that we emailed you about earlier today. As a result of this, contracts with all California residents participating in the Amazon Associates Program are terminated effective today, June 29, 2011. Those California residents will no longer receive advertising fees for sales referred to Amazon.com, Endless.com, MYHABIT.COM or SmallParts.com. Please be assured that all qualifying advertising fees earned before today will be processed and paid in full in accordance with the regular payment schedule.

You are receiving this email because our records indicate that you are a resident of California. If you are not currently a resident of California, or if you are relocating to another state in the near future, you can manage the details of your Associates account here. And if you relocate to another state in the near future please contact us for reinstatement into the Amazon Associates Program.

To avoid confusion, we would like to clarify that this development will only impact our ability to offer the Associates Program to California residents and will not affect your ability to purchase from Amazon.com, Endless.com, MYHABIT.COM or SmallParts.com.

We have enjoyed working with you and other California-based participants in the Amazon Associates Program and, if this situation is rectified, would very much welcome the opportunity to re-open our Associates Program to California residents. As mentioned before, we are continuing to work on alternative ways to help California residents monetize their websites and we will be sure to contact you when these become available.

Regards, The Amazon Associates Team

It’s great to see Representative Anthony Weiner exposed — I knew little of him before the sexting report, though did think he was a bit obnoxious.  And frankly when the sexting story broke, I didn’t pay much attention until he claimed to have been hacked.  What?  That’s a serious allegation and not true.  And now I see the TRUE IMPORTANCE of the story — It’s to show how easily and aggressively politicians lie to the public.  Mr. Weiner told lie after lie after lie, blamed others, down played the issue and mocked the inquisition, common moves in the political playbook.  Do you really think a big liar is going to do what’s best for you?  They promise to, but Mr. Weiner and numerous others are too busy looking out for themselves.  Re-establish integrity, dump them as spouses and politicians.  Nobody needs crap.
