MFP Commentary: This hits close to home. A few months back I experienced one of the most terrifying events in my life when a road pirate from the Seymour MO police department stopped me for an expired tag. (An offficer Mullins) Most of the physical injuries took a week to heal, but I will be dealing with the psychological damages for a long time to come. Rape victims often experience depression, and need counseling. Do not think for a moment that this was not a rape of my rights, my humanity, and my person. That was exactly what it was. Some day I will be able to write about it.
If you have been reading this paper then you also know that I was assaulted by a business owner in Seymour a month back and the predictably incompetent police department has not even contacted me concerning their so called investigation. IMHO if they can’t steal someone’s money, or get an illegitimate felony bust, they are not interested. Protecting your rights is the very last things that police departments are interested in. I have had conversations with the past 2 mayors of Seymour, and suggested that they either get rid of the police department or at the very least replace it with a contracted private police department. ( and here) As it stands all police departments stand behind the principle of “Sovereign Immunity” which is clearly a form of moral relativism, one of the major platforms of the Church of Satan. That is a fact, not a wild unsubstantiated claim. If we are to take the Declarations claim that “all men are created equal” , a cornerstone that this country was founded upon, we need to recognize that having a class of men with more rights than others is both immoral and evil on it’s face.
It was VERY telling that Mullins like a sexual predator that has just finished raping a victim, asked me with the leading question: “Why don’t you like cops?” Isn’t that almost the same thing that rapists ask their victims? i.e. “Did you enjoy it?”
It’s not that I don’t like cops like Rapist-Mullins. It’s that I don’t like criminals that violate my rights. Just like at Auschwitz, a Legislator putting words on paper do not excuse your committing crimes.
“Quit resisting.”—Cops yell at compliant young man who was thrown to the ground, beaten, arrested and hospitalized for severe injuries to his face and arm, allegedly in retaliation for “resisting arrest” by driving to a safe, well-lit area before submitting to a traffic stop for a broken tail light
We’ve all been there before.
You’re driving along and you see a pair of flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. Whether or not you’ve done anything wrong, you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.
You’ve read enough news stories, seen enough headlines, and lived in the American police state long enough to be anxious about any encounter with a cop that takes place on the side of the road.
For better or worse, from the moment you’re pulled over, you’re at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”
This is what I call “blank check policing,” in which the police get to call all of the shots.
So if you’re nervous about traffic stops, you have every reason to be. — Read More
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.
Having this martial arts target in my living room has brought unexpected results:
A few times when catching him in the corner of my vision, I have reflexively reached for my gun. (This is likley due to me living alone.)
I actually just told “him: that he better watch out or he was going to get shot.
The very greatest impediment to humanity throwing off the chains of illegitimate government, were expressed by Benjamin Franklin over 200 years ago, in his famous “Join or Die” political cartoon.
This is just as true today as in the Revolutionary era. The masses are dumbed down in government schools, and have fallen for the divide and conquer. Americans even though it may save their lives and liberties are too stupid to work together and remain largely divided. “Christians” are IMHO the biggest offenders here. Most of them do not even really support the concept of God given rights with anything other than lip service, much less be willing to work together to defeat the dark forces that are in power…… rather ironic if you think about it ~MFP
Pastor Chuck Baldwin hits the nail on the head about US “Christians” doing the exact same thing that the Christians in Nazi Germany did when faced with evil… They went along and said nothing! ~MFP
“…And as I have discussed many times in this column and in my messages, Romans 13 is one of the most egregiously misinterpreted passages of Scripture in America. Romans 13 is distorted to the point that Christians in this country have become little more than carbon copies of what a majority of Christians became in Nazi Germany: sheepish slaves of the state.
Yes, Romans 13 was Hitler’s favorite Bible passage. He had many of Germany’s pastors and preachers (“spiritual advisers”) constantly delivering sermons and Bible studies that taught (indoctrinated) churches to believe that, as Germany’s leader, Hitler had God’s approbation to do “anything,” including attacking foreign countries (which, of course, he did), and that it was the Christian’s duty to submit–and that any lack of submission to Hitler was a lack of submission to God. If this sounds eerily familiar to what you are hearing in the church you currently attend, you are in a Hitlerian church, my friend, and you need to GET OUT……” Read More
Americans could learn a heck of a lot from the Ants in this popular movie. The lesson is what the deep state does not want the sheep to know: “join or die”: ~MFP
