In the wake of "Frankenstorm" Sandy, residents of New Jersey turned away non-unionized electrical workers. The electrical workers traveled from way out-of-state, and the idiots of New Jersey sent the workers packing.

Don't those New Jersey idiots know that you don't look a gift horse in the mouth?  I'm wondering if those New Jersey union lovers buy their clothing, TV sets, appliances and other items of necessity are usually made by non-union workers in foreign countries. That J C Penney polo shirt was made by a non-union worker in Thailand.

New Jersey is a state loaded with morons; with Governor Chris Christy as the head moron.

Hey, guess what! A non-union worker would have gotten power restored faster than a union worker. A union worker gets paid whether he works or not; while a non-union gets paid by the job. The more jobs, the more the non-union worker makes.

It's simple folks, labor unions suck!

Union Thugs Are At It Again........

From Fox News..........

"The owner of several Connecticut nursing homes is calling for a criminal probe after union workers staged a mass walkout earlier this month, allegedly vandalizing and sabotaging the health care facilities in the process. Among the allegations is that the workers, supposedly disgruntled over protracted labor talks, switched around the IDs of Alzheimer's patients.
The alleged sabotage, which also purportedly included tampering with medication records and removing patient identification bands, occurred in three of the company’s five Connecticut facilities in the overnight hours before the July 3 strike, according to police reports and the complaint HealthBridge Management filed Thursday with the Chief State's Attorney office."
And we wonder why medical costs keep going up. Then the union thugs really care about patient care. NOPE! They only care about themselves.

Latest RadioShack Sucks News

It has come to my attention that RadioShack Corp. has not replied to my latest email concerning their trademark infringement case against myself. What makes this interesting is that RadioShack doesn't have a legal leg to stand on.

Since RadioShack knew that I have had the domain names for the past ten plus years, and they're now getting around to complain that I have owned the domains, it would appear that the statue of limitations has expired.

But, in my opinion, here's what the beef is about. The domains were up for renewal around the first of April. I tried to renew the domains, but my attempts were being rejected by the host computers. In the mean time, RadioShack had their name in the hat to obtain the domains once they had expired. Since my renewal finally went through, the domains reverted back to me; which made RadioShack angry.

RadioShack sent me a "nasty" email and registered letter (through snail mail), threatening me with all sorts of legal problems. They said that I was doing the company wrong because web surfers would confuse my domains with the company's website. That was an impossibility because my domains were not active. If you tried to enter my addresses into a browser's address bar, it would come back with an "Error 404" message (website not found).

Now, I have very little against RadioShack, even though I was once an employee. I retired from the company in 2003. I did, at one time, operate radioshacksucks dot com; however, I lost that after failing to renew the website following a traffic accident. I was hospitalized when the domain and website expired; however, I was able to renew the dot net and dot org domains in time.

And that brings us around to today. RadioShack is silent, since I have proved them wrong. I showed them the errors of their ways. If they want to press the issue further, I have documented about one thousand case laws where the Big Corporations lost their battles with the Little Guys; and I am prepared to forward those cases to the RadioShack lawyers.

One more item. It appears that RadioShack has spent more money on this case than if they bought the domains from me outright. I agree that my asking price for both domains ($10K) was too high; however, it gave me a starting point for further negotiations. I want to see what they have to offer, and go from there. I'm not going to give them the domains free of any charge; I'd be stupid to do so; however, I am willing to come down in price, as long as it's equitable. If RadioShack wants to reimburse me for the money I have spent keeping the domains (approximately $1K over the ten plus years), I'm willing to sell. I would still like to hear from them for the offer.

Enough for now.

Where's AMF?????

The company I used to work for is as intelligent as a box of rocks.

The city: Anaheim, California (almost across the street from Disneyland.) AMF spent upwards of $4 million fixing up a bowling center; turning virtually a dive into party central.

As the photos attest, it's a beautiful center.

Great looking center, right?

OK, so where is it?

AMF's website says it's located at 321 West Katella, in Anaheim.

OK, so where is it? Where are the signs that point the way to the center? There are none on Harbor Blvd., or on Katella.

You would think that AMF has a few million in the bank; so, why didn't they spend a few thousand to put up signs where people could see them.

Inquiring people want to know.

I'm being threatened with a lawsuit.

This is really stupid! I own two "sucks" domain names; and have had them for the past 10+ years. The corporation making threatening noises is RadioShack Corporation. Their claim is trademark infringement. Now, what makes this stupid is that RadioShack Corporation knew about this ten years ago; and they're just now getting around to threatening me with trademark infringement. It would appear that the statute of limitations (7 years) has passed. Therefore, they lost, and are pissed. Next in line is that there is a "fair use" law on the books. This allows journalists the use of company names in their reporting of stories. Then, there's the opinion side of the domain names. Since they are opinions, RadioShack doesn't have a leg to stand on. Opinions are just that, and can be taken with a grain of salt. (Personally, I would prefer having a lime wedge with my grain of salt.) Finally, I have, at least, a thousand case law decisions in my favor. I'm not an attorney; but, I am a retired broadcast radio journalist. It would appear that RadioShack is playing the bully-on-the-playground issue. I don't expect to get rich; but, I do expect to prevail.
