Takin' Care of Cheapness


This steak still has marks

from where the jockey was hitting it!
— Rodney Dangerfield in "Caddyshack"

I tried to tell people before, but did they listen? Noooooooo!

What is it, really? morgueFile/MaxStraeten
So I'll say it again, and appeal to the wallet instead of ethics: This is not the kind of economy for businesses to be cheap! There are reports of horse meat in various products [1,2] ("contanimated" is such a strong word...it's just not what people paid for) and speculation that the merchants are cutting corners. "Generic" or "store brand" items thaqt were formerly comparable (and sometimes superior) to their name-brand counterparts are getting less desirable; the name-brand products are often reducing quality themselves. Customer service? In many cases, fuggedaboudit! Little to no help. You have to learn how to work that gadget yourself. Restaurants that water down the soup? How cheap can you get?

Then they raise prices to prove how wonderful they are, and how you should be happy dealing with lousy service and a chintzy product.

Don't get me started on companies that pay $11 USD an hour to employees who are essential to their multi-million dollar businesses.

Scimunito!

People want a good product at a fair price now more than ever. They You're going to drive them away to your competition. Sometimes customer service ranks higher in importance than the item itself.

Don't be a cafone, Mr. or Miss Merchant. Or your customers will find someone who will take care of them. You might wind up in the shipping department of your competitors — if you work at all, capice?

Terms of Service — Are They Enforced?

When Facebook allows Pages and groups whose names are unfit to mention in front of children and sensible ladies, when they allow atheopath hate speech, when they allow libel, when they allow threats of violence, when they allow all sorts of infractions that violate their "Terms of Service", and do not enforce them, what good are they? The message they send is the Satanic, "Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law".
This was reported, and they said it was not a violation!
I have reported several posts, pictures and so on that any sensible person would clearly see that the contents violate the ToS of Facebook. Big deal. Perhaps it's because of the atheistic leanings of Facebook, but obscene anti-Christian materials are left alone.


This lack of activity from FB gives me the go-ahead for some truth-telling pages about wicked atheopaths, then. They won't care about the screenshots, will they?

On the other hand, Wordpress may not be a company to trifle with.

An atheopath was caught using an image of mine. (Actually, my wife snapped it.) I told him to take it down. It's mine, not his. Pretty simple that even this simpleton could understand it. He refused. I reported it to Wordpress (Automattic). They made him take it down.

Then he put it up again. I filed another takedown notice with Wordpress. It came down.

I found up that he put the thing up again a third time. Pretty arrogant, "Nobody's gonna tell me what to do!" attitude, he felt that he was in the right, despite what the law and what the Wordpress Terms of Service said. Guess what? Looks like the third strike, he's out. Addendum: Nope, just suspended. He perjured himself and claimed "Fair Use" to Automattic, and I would have to pursue expensive international litigation, so it was restored. Yet, the hypocrite fills his diaper whenever someone posts a public screen shot of his nefarious activities. I have an idea of something to make for his birthday.

Bottom line: ToS apply occasionally. The unfortunate lesson is: See what you can get away with.

Video — Eukaryotic Cells Refute Evolution

Evolution cannot withstand scrutiny. But it is foundational to liberal Christianity, other irrational religions and especially the incoherence known as atheistm. That's why evolution is protected, and contrary evidence suppressed, by the Evo Sith in their efforts to protect their fundamentally flawed worldviews.

And yet, the truth is discovered. Oh, sure, the protectors are sent scrambling to find excuses to keep their failed "theory" intact. Here is another short video with more information to show that evolution is a fundamentally flawed belief system. That is, evolutionism keeps looking more and more far-fetched because the evidence shows the Creator. How good is that?
