GOD BLESS THE CABLE COMPANY

Just kidding. May they burn in hell. I got a letter from them saying we had one or more set-top boxes that had to be replaced because they were going to some different kind of crap by Oct.6. The box on my set is only a couple months old so when I checked we only needed one for DWs TV. I have always insisted that one secret to a happy marriage is two TVs at opposite ends of the house.

I had to get a different box a few months ago when I finally broke down and replaced my old SDTV with a flat screen. Fortunately my stepson knows how to connect all this stuff. We both have (wait for it) a VHS/DVD player attatched to our sets. Her VHS recorder gave up the ghost years ago so I added DVR service to hers. Best ten bucks I ever invested.

When I took my old box to the Comcast office I had to take a number. There were 19 people ahead of me. There was a young Hispanic girl doing traffic control or something. There were plenty of illegals there so my guess is she was primarily an interpreter. I axed her about getting a new box for my other set. She had no clue. She guesed I had to disconnect the old box, drive 15 miles to the south end of town, and exchange it. I assured her that wasn’t gonna happen.

I ordered the new box through the mail and it arrived UPS a couple days ago. My beloved child bride insisted that I call and make sure this box had the DVR function, since it didn’t indicate so anywhere on the unit. I called and talked to some dude in Calcutta or New Delhi or someplace who was very difficult to understand. He told me to very much find the number on the back of the box thank you so much. After I gave it to him there was a long silence. Normally what they do when they can’t to get rid of you is put you on hold and walk away for an hour. When he came back he assured me it was a DVR unit. Was there anything else he could helping me with today?

Yeah,why did my bill jump $20 this month for no reason?

Have a pleasant day, sir, and thanking you for calling Comcast.

Son is coming over at some point today to hook it up. He loves his mama. I’m betting the dothead lied to me just to get rid of me. We’ll see soon enough.

    Shocking moment mother pulled a GUN on teens for threatening her son, 15, in the park… and later admits: ‘I would have used it’
    Tracy Leeser and husband Don showed up to the park after they said son Brett texted them saying he was going to be attacked and asking for help
    The mother is seen on a video of the incident screaming ‘Get the f*** away from my kid, you motherf*****’
    Leeser pulled the gun out from under her shorts after one of the teens said ‘Your son’s gonna get your a** beat right now’
    ‘You wanna beat my a**’ she said, pointing the gun at the teen, ‘Beat my a** motherf*****, I dare you’
    Leeser said she brought the gun to defend herself and that she had no intention of using it
    Video was uploaded to YouTube by Tyrelle Ware, 15, one of the teens she pointed the gun at
    Ware’s brother Terrence and another teen, both 18, were also present
    Police have yet to make any arrests regarding the incident
    OUR SOCIETY HAS DEGENERATED INTO KILL OR BE KILLED.THAT’S JUST HOW IT IS.

    Mosby to have fundraiser days after pretrial hearings in Freddie Gray case

    SHE’S GOING TO RUN FOR THE U.S. SENATE,WHERE SHE CAN STEAL SOME REAL MONEY
    Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby has a campaign fundraiser with tickets ranging from $250 to $1,000 scheduled for Sept. 16 — just days after key pretrial hearings in her case against the police officers charged in Freddie Gray’s arrest and death..

    The fundraiser’s timing has sparked criticism, coming as it does after a judge is asked to rule on major issues such as whether the closely watched case should be tried outside the city, or even dismissed. Circuit Judge Barry Glenn Williams will hear motions Wednesday and on Sept. 10, and city officials have been preparing for any protests or unrest that could erupt over his rulings.

    McConnell: Defunding Planned Parenthood must wait for new president

    IOW,WHY EVEN BOTHER MAKING AN EFFORT UNTIL YOU HAVE THE HOUSE,THE SENATE AND THE PRESIDENCY,WHICH HAPPENS EVERY 30-40 YEARS.
    The president’s made it very clear he’s not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood, so that’s another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood,” McConnell said Monday on the Kentucky station WYMT’s “Issues and Answers.”

    CBS News Reports Aide Refused Hillary Clinton Demand to Send Classified Info to Her Home Brew Server
    Included in the CBS report by Nancy Cordes was an email exchange via the home brew server between Clinton and her Deputy Chief of Staff Jacob Sullivan, a loyalist who now works for Clinton’s presidential campaign, in which Clinton demands Sullivan email a statement housed on the State Department’s classified email system with the apparent subject matter of then Secretary General of the Organization of American States Jose Miguel Insulza. Clinton’s email has a date stamp of 10:50 a.m. Wednesday, February 10, 2010.

    Here Are The Names Of The 34 Senators Who Pledge To Keep #IranDeal Alive In Congress UPDATE: J-Street Thanks The Traitors

    This is the list of the 34 U.S. Senators who have pledged to NOT override President Obama’s veto on a Republican plan to kill the #IranDeal. These 34 people are dirt.

    Op-Ed: Senators Who Took Money from Iran
    AIPAC PAID OFF EVERY ONE OF THESE STINKING WHORES

    Democrats in favor of a deal that will let a terrorist regime go nuclear have taken money from lobbies for that regime. And that includes Biden, Kerry and Gillibrand.
    Markey had topped the list of candidates supported by the Iran Lobby. And the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) had maxed out its contributions to his campaign.

    After more fake suspense, Al Franken, another IAPAC backed politician who also benefited from Iran Lobby money, came out for the nuke sellout.

    Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Iran Lobby’s third Dem senator, didn’t bother playing coy like her colleagues. She came out for the deal a while back even though she only got half the IAPAC cash that Franken and Markey received

    Analysis: Fiorina Gets Results as CNN Caves on Debate Rules

    All of this means, perversely, that there will probably be more polls from before the first debate included in the CNN formula than after the debate. So, in effect, Fiorina’s performance in the first debate is wiped out.
    Was wiped out, that is. This unjust formula has rightly been jettisoned for a more sensible one: Namely, the ten (and possibly more) strongest Republicans according to current, post-Cleveland polls will take the stage in Simi Valley on September 16. Kudos to CNN for doing the right thing and rectifying a glaring, correctable wrong. An even bigger tip of the cap is due to the Fiorina campaign, which effectively turned up the heat and forced the change.

    FOX News Contributor Lies on Air – Says TEA Party Linked to Mass Murderer
    Tonight on The Kelly File liberal FOX News contributor Richard Fowler defended the Black Lives Matter mob.

    But what he did next was even worse.
    Fowler claimed mass murderer Jared Loughner was linked to the Tea Party.

    “The shooting you were talking about in the video clip. There’s actually evidence that indicates that this person had Tea Party sentiments. He agreed with the Tea Party.”
    That is an absolute lie, as Katie Pavlich pointed out.

    SHOCK: As Americans Bought 170 Million Guns, Violent Crime Fell 51%

    This information squares with the findings of a Congressional Research Service (CRS) study covering the slightly shorter period of time from 1994 to 2009. For those years, CRS found that Americans purchased approximately 118 million firearms, and the 1993 “firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicide” rate of 6.6 per 100,000 fell to 3.6 per 100,000 by the year 2000. It eventually fell all the way to 3.2 per 100,000 in 2011.

    That is more than a 50 percent reduction in “firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicide.”

    “You’d have to be really, really stupid” to buy Hillary’s “ridiculous” denials
    Maybe betting on stupidity is the point. Joe Scarborough rightly declared this morning that it takes a high level of ignorance and/or obstinacy at this point to believe anything Hillary Clinton says about her e-mail server and the classified information that State has discovered on it – including in e-mails Hillary wrote herself. That has been true all along, however Come on, man. Even when Hillary made this declaration, we knew that at least 30,000 e-mails had been sent as work product through her home-brew system over four years

    O’KEEFE STRIKES AGAIN!
    James O’Keefe Drops Hillary Tape – National Marketing Director Illegally Accepts Foreign Contribution

    Investigative journalist James O’Keefe released their undercover report on the Hillary Clinton campaign today at the National Press Club.


    During Clinton’s kickoff campaign event at Roosevelt Island, a Canadian citizen with no affiliation to Project Veritas Action attempted to make a donation to the Clinton campaign by purchasing a Hillary shirt. Barker knew that this was illegal, a fact which was confirmed by Clinton’s national Compliance Manager Erin Tibe, yet proceeded to process the contribution…
