MINUTE MAID (the Coca-Cola Company) CAUGHT!!

Aren't you dammed sick and tired of companies reducing the size of their products and keeping the price the same? I sure am. Some time back I caught Wal-Greens doing it with their Jumbo Sunflower Seeds. 16 oz became 13 oz and the price stayed the same. Now it's Minute Maid's (the Coca-Cola Company) turn. A 128 fl oz jug of their Orange Juice (UPC 0 25000 05557 7) has become an 89 fl oz jug (UPC 0 25000 05186 9) and the price ... exactly the same. The liberals call me stupid (and a few other names) and my sister has said my heart is "...filled with hate..." BUT ...and I know my math skills are deficient (my ex-wife has said so) but ... nearly 30% less product for the exact same price. HELLOOOOOOOOOO .... I told them I didn't want a form letter. I am now waiting for 1) A form letter 2) Silence 3) A statement saying that this is what the Customers wanted. (ie - a form letter) Aren't you dammed sick and tired??? Contact them! 1 800 888 6488 or https://secure.thecoca-colacompany.com/ssldocs/mail/eQuery_other.shtml Bastards.

An Open Letter to the Joint Chiefs of Staff

An Open Letter to the Joint Chiefs of Staff; For reference, the article I refer to is located here: http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/soldier-told-not-to-read-levin-limbaugh-or-hannity-in-uniform.html The title itself is pretty damming of today’s “military.” Of course, we all know that the Fort Hood mass-murderer was looked at for radical Islamic sayings but it was determined that he was “not a threat.” How about now? There were others who did not report his conduct because they were afraid of being targeted for “discrimination,” or appearing anti-Islamic. That is a fact, one even you cannot dispute. The President, the one who swore to “…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution…” now calls it “work place violence.” And you people let him. We KNOW that he studied at the same radicalized Mosque as TWO of the 9/11 hijackers; that fact was known at the time. And you didn’t care. When Maj. Stephen Coughlin wrote “To Our Great Detriment,” you people fired him. What was his great crime? Why, he simply pointed out what the jihadists were saying … in their own words. Tell me; did you actually bother to … oh, I don’t know … READ that thesis? I did, and it was quite the eye-opener. I wrote to you about it at the time … never did get a reply. Too afraid to take your PC blinders off? And now we come to MSgt. Nathan Sommers who is facing retribution for what he reads. Not what he writes (you ignored the mass-murderers works,) not what he preaches (you ignored that too,) but what he reads. Of course, to be fair, I must point out that years back a Muslim Cleric was supposed to arrive at Sheppard AFB. He never did arrive, but his reading materials did. I read them. There were two books that were anti-American and preached jihad … openly. I informed the Director of TNEIN of it, he and his staff determined that the Cleric needed scrutiny. I attempted to tell the Col. about it, frankly, I thought the man’s head would explode. But this MSgt. is being punished for reading Rush Limbaugh?!? The last time I checked, he wasn’t preaching jihad or killing Americans. Same for Messrs Hannity and Levin. Tell me, if a soldier were noted reading “Heather has two Mommies,” what would happen? I’ll go out on a branch and tell you … nothing. Not one damn thing. And that is sad. You people, the Joint Chiefs also took an oath to “…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution…” Are you? Or is the rot of political correctness too firmly rooted there? Sirs, you shame me. I am ashamed that I once was in Basic Training at Fort Dix. I am now ashamed that I once wore my Countries Uniform. And I am ashamed by your actions … and inactions. You once stated that you had honour. Therefore, on the honour you purport to have I hereby legally order you to resign or commit seppuku. You have 30 days. The above was sent to the JCoS on this date immediately before being posted here. I am awaiting a reply that I doubt will ever come. And that too is sad.

An Open Letter to Speaker Boehner

Mr Speaker;

This letter to you is about the future of our Republic. There are various sources that state that you and/or others (at your behest) removed certain Conservative members from various committees. That scares the hell out of me, and you Mr Speaker, scare the hell out of me.

I want serious answers to the following questions, and a form letter won’t do it. But, even a lack of reply (and any reply you might make) will be posted on my blog which is located at http://gregb1967.blogspot.com

1) Every time “revenues (ie; taxes)” have increased, new programs have been created.

a. If you answer “no” or “unsure” then I know you’re a liar. History is your guide to this.

2) The “lockbox” of Social Security has been raided repeatedly, its monies used for other things.

a. If you answer “no” or “unsure” then I know you’re a liar. Again, history is your guide.

3) The long-term actuarial deficits for both Social Security and Medicare increased substantially in 2012 (*1), although for different reasons. Both of them can be tied, at least indirectly to Obama’s policies. Simply check the link for the facts.

4) 47% of Americans pay no Federal Income Tax. That leaves 53% to pick up the tab.(*2)

a. The vast majority of these people are either elderly or are paying payroll tax (28.3%.)

b. Federal Income Tax is just part of the picture. To get the complete picture, you need to factor in State and Local taxes (including sales taxes, ballot taxes, etc.) These taxes tend to be regressive and actually hit lower-income groups hardest. When these taxes are factored in, some people are now paying over 50% of their income in taxes. (*3)

Mr Speaker, those are the facts. Another fact is that the deficit increased more under Obama in not quite four years than it did in the eight years under Bush. If you remember, Obama slammed Bush, calling it “unpatriotic.”

Deficit spending does not work. We must get the deficit down and entitlements must be included in any discussions.

Mr Speaker; I’m going to be blunt. Conservatives were elected in 2010 to provide a real alternative to Mr Obama’s policies, which many people say are socialist. And Mr Speaker, it is neither RAAAAAACIST or hateful to say so … and frankly I’m damned tired of hearing that old, tired rhetoric.

You and others in the GOP must do more to reach out to the low-information voters(*4) who tend to vote Democratic and who mostly get their information from MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NPR, and the NYT. This means that you and others must go on their “shows” and tell the facts … and dispute their lies. You and others in the GOP must do more to dispute the Democrats and medias’ lies.

Frankly, Mr Speaker, your recent actions have led me to consider asking for your removal as Speaker … something that is not binding, but should be quite telling.

A final word about gun control. Those two firefighters killed in the recent Rochester, NY ambush were killed by an ex-felon(*4), somebody who had no legal right to possess any firearm. More gun control is not the answer, Mr Speaker. Guns do not kill people … people do (*5). If I wanted a person dead, I could pick up a metal fork and use it. I could pick up a paper clip and use that as well (if you think I’m joking, think again.) People kill people, Mr Speaker. You and others in the GOP need to slam these Democrats and their tools in the media for using firearms as scapegoats.

Aren't You Sick?

Aren’t you sick?

Aren’t you sick and tired of those on the liberal left who can’t debate the facts, but they can:
1)      Slander.  “They’re all RAAAAACIST!”  Don’t like Mr Obama’s policies?  “RAAAAAACIST!” 
2)      Demagogue.  Apparently, our hearts are “full of hate.”
3)      Call names & belittle.  “R U insane?  Methinks so.”
4)      Pull out the “emotional” card.  “Don’t you care?!?”  Or, “But what about me?”
I’ll be the first to admit that there are also those on the right who cannot or will not listen to other viewpoints.  We’re “wrong” if we disagree with them.  Point out the facts and you’re “looking for trouble.”  It is these people … on both sides of the aisle ... that are part of the problem.
If you wish to debate me, that’s great!  I welcome debate.  Notice please that I said “debate.”  The instant either one of us picks up any of those cards, we’ll have shown ourselves to be part of the problem.  And if you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I pride myself on being part of the solution.
It’s actually quite sad in that in only fifty short years we’ve gone from “Ask not what your Country can do for you; ask what you can do for your Country,” to ObamaPhone Woman.  And it’s not just her.  Several investigative reports by several local affiliates suggests that 10% (1 out of every 10) of people with these “free” phones have not just one such device.  And not just two … but three such devices.  One woman had six … in her purse. (*4)  The FCC found that as of the production of the article, it was 250,000 people who had more than one such phone.
Guess who’s paying for those “free” phones?  You ask those that have them and you’ll be told “the government” is paying for them or that Obama is.  But where do they get the money? (*4)  Take a look at your cell bill and you’ll find the “Universal Service Fund,” and/or the “Universal Access Fee.”  That’s right … you are.
A quick note here;  these monies were originally levied by President Clinton.  The idea was that the funds were to be used for landlines and for 911 systems.  President Bush (the younger … Shrub) expanded the program to cell phones and the amount of people receiving them increased.  But it has exploded under Obama.  Feel free to look it up … Google really is your friend.  (At least for this … please don’t get me started about some of their very public snafus.)
These, of course, are the same people who can’t be bothered to read any opposing viewpoint.  Try to tell them that the Federal government is considering taking all monies out of individual 401(k) and replacing them with annuities … and they’ll say that’s not true.  Tell them it is true and point them to the articles about it, and they don’t want to see it.  (*1)
Forgive me for being dense, but part of being informed means being willing to listen to both sides of the debate.  And this is where the utter hypocrisy of the left reeks.  Try to point out the numerous things we’ve said about the healthcare law and … boy, do they have lots to say about that!
Most of them are wrong, but they still have lots to say about it!  Remember when Ms Palin was excoriated for saying that there would be “death panels?”  Well … there’s a New York Times Op-Ed that says we need such panels! (*2)
Remember when some were saying that such panels could be coming for infants?  Well … (*3)  Those are the facts.  Care to dispute them?
I was part of the problem … and I freely admit it. (*5)   I’m not proud that I was once part of the problem.  But I have since worked to become part of the solution.

An Open Letter:

AN OPEN LETTER: To the Slackless Service (keep your Anthony Weiners inside and your hormones in park,) the Department of Hussein’s Sycophants (gotta love the job Ms Clownitano’s done. She couldn’t find her way out of an open outhouse,) and the Department of (Social) Justice (Black Panthers intimidating voters? NO PROBLEM!!) : As for the FBI? The Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have nothing but praise to sing for them. If they’d been allowed on the ground in Benghazi immediately after the attack; they’d have already gotten the people that murdered our Ambassador. Which is why Dear Leader kept ‘em out for so long. Perhaps you’re aware of the death threats made against Mr Romney if Dear Leader is voted out. Tell me, do you people care? Are you investigating? Or are you going to regurgitate the same tired bullshit that only Conservatives make threats? And that we’re “potential domestic extremists? Nothing to say? Do any of you sad people (excepting the FBI again, we KNOW they do) have any honour left? Anybody? I know I’m talking to the wind here, but please get off your sorry asses and start looking into the threats made against Mr Romney. In other words, DO YOUR JOBS. Here’s a website you might be interested in: http://www.infowars.com/threats-to-assassinate-romney-explode-after-debate/ -and- http://twitchy.com/2012/10/17/post-presidential-debate-obama-supporters-renew-vows-to-murder-mitt-romney/?utm_source=autotweet&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=twitter “Twitchy will continue to chronicle these vicious, violent assassination threats. In the meantime, we sincerely hope that the Secret Service will take swift action. “ “As Infowars has stressed, we are non-partisan and have encouraged people to vote for neither candidate. However, the hypocrisy of leftists in trying to either downplay or deny this issue altogether is jaw-dropping given how they routinely try to portray conservatives as violent and extremist by pointing to angry comments made online. “ Of course, with Dear Leader in office, Ms Clownitano, and the man who LIED about F&F, you’ll investigate me first. I’ll make it easy. I’m the Greg Birosh that lives in OHIO. The last four of my SSN is xxxx, and I was born on xx-ABC-xxxx. There: So easy even Dear Leader could do it … and without his TelePrompTer. YOU ARE ALL MADE AWARE THAT ANY AGENTS, OFFICER(S) YOU SEND HERE WILL BE SEARCHED AND ANY NON-DECLARED WEAPONS CONFISCATED. They will be returned after the interview, or after they are ordered to leave.
