Ignoring the Constitution is not the answer

So apparently, Congress does not think that the Constitution applies anymore. It also apparently thinks that everything that does not instantly make sense in two seconds must be punished with things that ONLY make sense if you think about them for two minutes.

Since when do we allow Ex Post Facto Law and Bills of Attainder in this country??

Yeah, the AIG employees in question make more in an hour than I do in several years. Some of them are probably jerks, criminals, incompetent, whatever. But I'm sure some of these employees are legit, and worked hard, and it's not ALL of their faults that the business failed. Please contact your congresscritters and explain this all to them.

Random Link of The Day

Read this link on the Icelandic bankruptcy. It's actually quite interesting, with some funny side notes, and surprisingly easy to read!

Why I absolutely can not stand Verizon!

OK, I can not believe this.
I was going to switch from Cavalier Telephone to Verizon about a month ago. I scheduled a switch date. I never got an email confirmation of the online order placed.
I then found out I could not be home on the scheduled date. I called them, and waited 28 minutes on hold. I finally spoke to someone and they told me, per my request, the switch date was postponed two weeks.
I asked for my confirmation number so I could make future changes online. She said she had to transfer me to a different group for that. I waited 20 more minutes on hold, and had to go, so I hung up.
I called back the next business day, and was told that they had never postponed my switch date. I was so fed up at this point I said cancel the whole thing and do not switch my service AT ALL. I never got a confirmation call of cancelling as promised on the phone number I asked, although I did get a phone call from Verizon on my home line, but no message was left. Since I work during the rest of the week, I could not call all week to follow up because I simply don't have an hour to wait on hold while at work and they are closed when I get home.
So today, I get home and I have a zero balance bill from Cavalier and when I call Cavalier it asks me if I want to re-establish service.
And of course they are closed til Monday. At this point I might as well stay with them, it is 15 dollars a month cheaper, but man am I ever livid.

A Quick Funny Video

See more Jack Black videos at Funny or Die

I really enjoyed this video. I think it's great to see celebrities showing some support for gay people, and the video is really funny too!

Important PSA

Everyone, look out for small (30 cents or less) charges from a company called Adele Services. My cards are OK, but I found this article that I wanted to pass on to everyone. Apparently some scammers have gotten ahold of a lot of credit card #s through either breach or random card number generation, and are first testing the waters, and then cleaning out accounts.
