One of the reasons why I have DirecTV….Can’t afford Time Warner!

An Ohio man says Time Warner Cable told him he owed the company $16.4 million. Daniel DeVirgilio, of Beavercreek, says his payment was rejected because it wouldn’t cover the total. His bill is usually $80.DeVirgilio wanted to watch the NCAA basketball tournament’s Sweet 16 but didn’t expect it to cost a million dollars per team. He jokes he should have added Showtime to his channels because the charge of a few extra dollars doesn’t seem big in comparison.Time Warner says human error is to blame for the payment problem. Officials say a worker typed the wrong amount owed, and a letter to DeVirgilio was automatically generated. They’re working to resolve the issue.

4) “What they’ll say is, ‘Well it costs too much money,’ but you know what? It would cost, about… It  it  it would cost about the same as what we would spend… It… Over the course of 10 years it would cost what it would costs us… (nervous laugh) All right. Okay. We’re going to… It… It would cost us about the same as it would cost for about  hold on one second. I can’t hear myself. But I’m glad you’re fired up, though. I’m glad.”

10) “I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future.”
A. Barack Obama   B. Sarah Palin   C. George W. Bush   D. Hillary Clinton



I have to admit that this is a trick quiz.  All of the correct answers are the same person.  Each of these quotes are from President Barack Obama.  Now you know why he brings his teleprompter with him everywhere he goes….. even on a visit to a 6th grade class!!!
By the way, how many of these quotes did you read or hear about in the mainstream media? Had former President George W. Bush or Governor Palin made any one of the above statements the media would have immediately covered it as a breaking news story.
I guess we’re lucky that the media in this country does not play favorites, right?  Yeah, right… I wish they had included some of Joe Biden’s… probably not enough room but the all time favorite is when he asked his friend in the audience to “Stand up”… and the man was in a wheelchair…

Public Employee Unions Playing Taxpayers For Suckers

One of numerous ways taxpayers are being ripped off by public employees is through phony “retirement” schemes that enable the employee to collect a fat pension in addition to continuing to work and receive salary and benefits. The “retirement” pay becomes, in effect, a huge pay increase, one usually linked to inflation.


This “double-dipping” is not uncommon when taxpayers are on the hook, but exceedingly rare in the private sector. Quite clearly, the politicians who sign such contracts are, in collusion with the employees (and their unions), playing the taxpayers for suckers.
The newest poster boy for the outrageous (but contractually legal) practice is Phoenix School Superintendant Carlos Bejarano.

AT&T agrees to buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion (update)

The immediate reaction to AT&T agreeing to buy T-Mobile USA was to ask, “so that means the iPhone’s coming to T-Mo, right?” Well, wrong. T-Mobile has delivered an FAQ on its site informing customers about the forthcoming transition, including the unequivocal notice regarding the iPhone:”T-Mobile USA remains an independent company. The acquisition is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months. We do not offer the iPhone. We offer cutting edge devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and coming soon our new Sidekick 4G.”


Wowzers! AT&T and Deutsche Telekom have entered into a definitive agreement for the sale of T-Mobile USA for $39 billion in cash and stocks. The combined customer base of this upcoming behemoth will be 130 million humans, though the agreed deal will have to pass the usual regulatory and closing hurdles before becoming complete. The two companies estimate it’ll take them 12 months to get through all the bureaucracy — if they get through, the proposed network merger will create a de facto GSM monopoly within the United States — but we don’t have to wait that long to start discussing life with only three major US carriers. AT&T envisions it as a rosy garden of “straightforward synergies” thanks to a set of “complementary network technologies, spectrum positions and operations.”

Dear Internal Revenue Service:

Enclosed you will find my 2010 tax return showing that I owe $3,407.00 in taxes. Please note the attached article from the USA Today newspaper, dated 12 November, wherein you will see the Pentagon (Department of Defense) is paying $171.50 per hammer and NASA has paid $600.00 per toilet seat.
I am enclosing four (4) toilet seats (valued @ $2,400) and six (6) hammers (valued @ $1,029), which I secured at Home Depot, bringing my total remittance to $3,429.00.
Please apply the overpayment of $22.00 to the “Presidential Election Fund,” as noted on my return. You can do this inexpensively by sending them one (1) 1.5 ” Phillips Head screw (see aforementioned article from USA Today newspaper detailing how H.U.D. Pays $22.00 each for 1.5″ Phillips Head Screws). One screw is enclosed for your convenience.
It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year.

A Satisfied Taxpayer
