It’s surprising the government hasn’t made power seats – and windows – illegal. Well, at least not yet. After all, they are arguably at least as “unsafe” as not wearing a seat belt.
Maybe it will occur to someone. Give it time.
The argument for requiring the use of seat belts is that you might be thrown about or even ejected from the vehicle in the event of a crash. But you might also drive off the road, into a pond. It’s certainly possible. And if your car has power windows, you will be trapped inside because power windows don’t work under water.
This is very unsafe – at least potentially. Just as potentially, arguably, as not wearing a seat belt, given what might happen.
Why are power windows allowed, given that fact?.. Read More
Amazon returns is now only authorizing a single pickup attempt, and they don’t even bother to notify the customer of this policy change. I am not in a rural area where they don’t even have to drive 10 feet out of their way to pickup a return. They come right past the house every day of the week. They even drop things off multiple times a week. Couldn’t I just hand the package to them then, rather than going to one of their pickup points? I spoke with 2 Amazon supervisors, and these people that do this for a living did not even have mental capacity to offer this as an option.
What ever happened to customer service? Their lips move, and they say they are customer centric, but when the rubber meets the road, they pee on your leg and tell you that it’s raining.
I Mentioned the fact that I was never notified of this change of policy no less than 4 times, yet their so called customer service, did not address that concern, but rather accused me of being “unprofessional” , while they peed on me. There is a psychological term for this called projection. Look it up.
Part of what precipitated this incident was that yesterday against my better judgement I went way out of my way to a UPS return box (because they gave me no other return choice for some reason) to deposit a small package. A Fire 8 tablet. Guess what? The UPS drop off box was too small! Being a fairly good student of geometry I quickly saw the solution.. Stomp the box flat and stuff into into their *&@&# box. 🙂
Don’t these people understand that peeing on the customer will come back and hurt them? I told the Amazon service rep on the phone, while they were recording it, (in the hopes that upper management will listen to it) That I would consider a policy of from now on of instead of placing an order of say 5 things in one order, to space them out. I won’t place the order for the second item until the first one ships. That way I can cost them 2 or 3 times more in shipping costs. Perhaps you should consider this “monkey warfare” tactic.
We are not powerless folks. We have social media to out this kind of BS. And we have our brains to design strategies like I just outlined. I can think of a few others that would cost them a lot more money, but that might spoil the fun.
In closing, this is another example of what happens when people don’t speak out. Just like the fact that we have the criminal government that we now have because people do not “speak truth to power“.
Anyhow that is my little rant for the day. I am tired of constantly being raped. How about you? The cliche “I am mad as hell and am not going to take it any more” comes to mind.
My next step is to email this post to the evil Globalist Jeff Bezos with a copy
Yes Jeff many of us are awake, and know your end game. We know about your collusion with NSA, and we are not afraid of you. You can kill individuals, but you can not kill an idea, and the idea of liberty and the free market are out and Amazon is going to fall.
The bigger they are the harder they fall and I hope that I live to see your downfall Jeff. But to tell you the truth I would rather kick you in the balls
Yes you read that right, and my standard retort to the question of “this is Amazon how may I help you?” is now “If you can find Jeff Bezos please kick him in the balls”. That usually sets them back a bit, and then I continue to explain:
I am a very computer literate person, and avoided “intellectual property rights” like Amazon’s Kindle books for almost 15 years, because I knew what I would be getting into, so against my better judgement I made the Kindle plunge…..
The very fist week, I could not get my bought, and paid for property to download into the Windows 7, Kindle reader, I spend 4 entire mornings with the incompetent Amazon support staff that took 2 days to tell me to turn off my VPN because their half baked app would not work with a VPN. I spent 2 more days with tech support, and in the end Amazon stole over 6 hours of my time with no compensation, in my effect to use my own bought and paid for property.
Fast forward to last night… I was reading a very important book necessary for my vocation, last night when I decided to see what the process of loaning out a Kindle book looked like. So for test purposes I “loaned” the book to my mother by sending her an email that she could either accept or refuse. ( I knew ahead of time she would NEVER accept this invitation and read this book.
What happened immediately was that I no longer had access to my book!
To give an analogy this would be like me calling you and agreeing to loan you my book if you wanted it. But before you could even answer, or accept, a thief by the name of Jeff Bezos sneaks into my house, and steals my personal property. I am not allowed to read my own book, and you have not even decided whether you want to read it or not. What boggles my mind is why the idiots at Amazon did not include a button that would take the loan back. If someone does not take you up on your loan that you are still denied the use of your property by Jeff Bezos. This is the very definition of theft.
Anyhow I spent an uncompensated hour on the phone last night with tech support who manged to get the book back on my laptop.
This morning I tried to open the book on my smartphone only to find it unavailable. I just spend 2 hours and 5 phone calls to get this issue resolved.
I find Amazon’s actions to be those of a thief, and I am in the process of filing a complaint with the Missouri Attorney generals office (for all of the help that that are.)
Stay tuned to updates….
11/15/17 12:30 am – Just got my new phone turned on yesterday as replacing the screen on the old one cost as much as phone does. I just tried to fire up the kindle app on the new phone, and read “MY” book, and guess what? Yup… that low life criminal SOB Jeff Bezos has stolen my book, and my time again (something that you and I would go to jail for). I can’t read my book now without spending a lot of time on the phone with Amazon tech support. This is how criminal these large corperations have become. I would bet that this story continues…..they are not done screwing me. This is what I foresaw and why I eschewed this technology for 15 years. and yes I still fantasize about kicking Jeff Bezos in the balls.
If you do your due diligence you are likely to come to the conclusion like many have that Jeff Bezos is a globalist and thus the mortal enemy of anyone that believes in the principles that this country was founded upon.
His dealing with the NSA borders on treason IMHO. A capital offense….
Lets not forget the criminal theft of both Animal Farm and Brave New World on readers tablets. This was not IMHO an accident, but a clear message about the nefarious nature of these ebooks, and that Amazon, as part of the New World Order’s infrastructure, was going to take full advantage of it.
Paid for a Kindle book. Twice in fact. It still has not shown up, so I can’t read it.
So in addition to the cost of the book, I am going to have to spend $20 of my time tied up with tech support to get access to my own property. Do you see a pattern here yet?
This time Amazon, that seems to own all of the books that i paid for, is now not letting me read one of my cook books, saying that it is registered on too many devices. Who knows how much time it is going to take to jump this latest hurtle put between me and my property?
FWIW I am still unable to read any of my books on my laptop using the Windows 7 application. and that is after spending 4 full mornings with their tech support and getting no where.
The ebook I purchased last night has still not shown up and in addition when I tried to open a book on my smartphone I found out that the obtuse, confusing, interface to administer the licenses that Amazon has in the Web interface, deleted all of the books on my smartphone. Then when I tried to open one of my books I was greeted again with a license issue, that could only be addressed on the obtuse web interface where you again guess at what devices you are deleting books on.
Two weeks into having a Fire 8, many of my books are still not even halfway downloaded. The device has been on a fast WiFi network for the entire time.
I should sent both of my devices back, but then I am stuck with a dozen books that I paid a pretty penny for with no way to comfortably read them, while on the go. Not that I can actually read them if they are not downloaded.
My desire to “kick Jeff Bezos in the balls” grows with each day of being urinated on by Amazon, and being told that “it’s raining”, that I am not being urinated on….
I hope the above, which is only a small portion of the issues that I have had with “Kindle:” books, gives you some insight at to why I think that Jeff Bezos needs kicked in the balls.
Here are 2 pictures that document the above few paragraphs:
Amazon defaulting ebook purchase to a gift purchase, even thought 99% of the purchase are likely for the person themselves. If I didn’t know any better, and didn’t know what an honest, integrity driven company that Amazon was, I might think that they did this on purpose to generate more income by being dishonest. Most people making this mistake would likley not get the refund as I did, because it is too much trouble.
On the web page where your devices are registered I have 13 devices registered , with no way to really tell what is what, and I think Amazon likes it that way. In addition it looks like Jeff Bezos limits you to reading your content on only 2 devices A fact they try hard to obfuscate. I happen to have 4 laptops, 2 of which I use regularly, 2 tablets, and an off the cell network smart phone that I use in the kitchen as a media server. Amazon has created a real nightmare for many of it’s users. I own the books BUT I can’t read them on my devices without getting to a PC and then deregistering them on devices that I often can not tell what they are, which then creates more down stream problems. Today I had to spend another 45 minutes on the phone to address the current issues. I also learned that Amazon is now not supporting their stand alone app on Windows 7. How can you read books when they stop support for the app that you want to use? Like I said at the beginning, Amazon looks like a criminal organization. It certainly does not treat it’s customers well at all, in respecting THEIR property rights. Much of their actions are guided by their intellectual property rights concerns, but you do not solve them by stomping all over your customers property rights. I have some very good ideas on how they could solve the issue but will keep them to myself, unless they are willing to pay me as a consultant. Amazon has stolen enough of my time already.
Read the comments below. This is still way too upsetting for me to be able to objectively write about for awhile. The attacker seemed to exhibit a psychotic break . It was a very unsettling sight to say the least. I have never seen a human being act anything like the attacker did right before he assaulted me.
I was in the store at the counter asking questions about a military helmet, having some civil banter about our military when Mr. Kelley exhibited bizarre behavior, similar to the descriptions of a psychotic break. He ranted on about the media figure Alex Jones and his “followers”, right before the attack. Ironically the Infowars News organization has been reporting attacks on people for their free speech by mentally unstable people, on the left.
If you know anything about PTSD type psychology, events like this can hang with you…. I will likely be dealing with both physical and emotional injury from this attack for some time to come.
It seems that 3 crimes were committed yesterday:
1.) I was assaulted in the store near the door as I was leaving. ( From past experience, I suspect the Seymour police department will not take this crime seriously, and won’t even look at the store video of this incident.)
2.) A very sentimental hat from a family trip to Jerusalem, was stolen, as it was knocked off during the assault.
3.) I was threatened (with implied violence after just being violently assaulted) to leave a public space as shown in the video.
4.) I also suspect a 4th crime. I suspect that the military helmet that I was looking at was stolen from the US military. I don’t think that the US government gives soldiers $600 helmets that the tax payer has paid for. I would be very curious as to how this store came upon this item. It was way too much current issue for me to think that it could a legitimate surplus item.
Pawn shops are known by police to have a high incidence of criminal activity. I tend to believe that assesment after my unfortunate experience in the K Trading post in Seymour.
UPDATE 12/3/17 As expected I have not been contacted in any manner by the Seymour Police Department. They are are a total waste of our tax dollars IMHO.
I still have not been contacted by the Seymour police department. Anyone that helps cover up a crime is in my opinion a criminal, and the Seymour Police department seems to be a criminal enterprise in this respect. Especially in light of what I view as irrefutable evidence from this shops security system that a crime was committed.
It appears that they not interested in real crimes, or are grossly incompetent, but woe to anyone that drives through their town and has not paid the king tribute by having a little sticker on their license plate, as I once did. I was both physically, and psychologically terrorized by one of their terrorists in a blue costume. It was beyond a doubt the most terrifying day of my life. Someday I will be able to write about it, as it was so upsetting that here months after it happened, I can not bring myself to go there.

I have had a poor experiences with business’s here in SW Missouri and I thought that I would write them up as I get time, and invite others to do the same. Send them to me ( at MFP at the above domain) and I will publish them under the “Consumer Business Reports” category:
I am currently thinking of writing articles on
The SAMS club south optical department and Missouri laws on this topic in general
Missouri contractors in general
A major large local blood donation center
Fordland medical clinic (single use vials etc – bad advice, standards of care)
The drivers bureau in Marshfield
The Webster County property tax office
The Seymour police department
The marshfield police and swat team
Dragon Dictate fiasco and the MO attorney general
Google mail and the MO attorney generals office.
11/7 Amazon kindle not working on my second smartphone, nor will kindle DL to either of my laptops. Support kept me going for 3 days on that one and never solved it. They trample your rights by attrition.
I would also like to direct the reader to RipOffReports, the only, as far as I can tell, real consumer protection site on the entire Internet that has survived the suing doctors and attorneys.
*NOTE: Don’t hold your breath for your local paper to do this, they are indebted,and thus controlled by their advertisers. Also remember that the best way to get a “bad” business to change is to shine the light of day on them.
Expose them to public scrutiny, ridicule, and scorn.

If you’ve gone to get new tires recently, you may have already dealt with the latest outcropping of technocratic busybodyism: The scanning of your car’s electronic ear tag, its Vehicle Identification Number or VIN.
The VIN is a bar code – literally – just like the one on the packages of stuff you buy at the supermarket or anywhere else that’s corporate. The VIN specifically identifies your car – including every last detail about it, such as the engine/transmission it came with, the color it was painted and the tires it came equipped with from the factory.
And now it is being used to identify you….. Read More
If they were at least consistent, you might be persuaded that Our Controllers were truly concerned about our safety. As opposed to using “safety” as the pretext for controlling us.
Not infrequently, to the detriment of our safety.
There are many examples to prove the point but the latest is the push for congressional approval of an exemption for automated cars from the federal safety requirements that apply to not-automated cars. Specifically, an exemption from the regs which forbid the sale of automated cars that lack back-up controls which a human driver can use to prevent the car from doing something manifestly unsafe because its automated systems have experienced a technical hiccup.
Having some way to intervene when an automated car runs amok doesn’t seem like a bad idea – assuming Our Safety is the criteria– especially given that automated cars haverun amok and given that the more of them there are in circulation, the more often this will happen – for the same reason you get more flat tires when there are 10 million cars out there driving around vs. 10 cars driving around.
Grown-ups used to appreciate being treated as grown-ups, especially by other grown-ups. How is it that today’s grown-ups demand that they be treated like not-too-bright children?
This manifests all over but one obvious area is new cars. The latest example being what Nissan just announced it will be installing in at least one of its 2018 models – the Pathfinder SUV – and probably, inevitably, the rest, too:
“Rear Door Alert.”
Its purpose? To remind Moo or Duh (or both of them, together) that Baby Finster is strapped into his seat back there and not to forget and leave him to roast like a pork loin while they go shopping for a new sail fawn……. READ MORE
