… Basically , the Shippers [Bleeped] Up …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 26th,2013

.. why did the packages that were sent via U.P.S. and FedEx end up being late ?

.. what do I think ? I think that FedEx and U.P.S. and the others got caught with their pants down . They misunderestimated both the amount of packages that would be ordered this Christmas season . As it turns out , I think that the total was up . Not waaaay up , but up a fair bit . It was not just that , however .

.. They goofed on the timing . Goofing on both elements means that they did not have the human capital [people] that they needed when they were needed . They also did not have the physical capital [planes , pipeline space] that was substantial enough . Because of it , they got caught with excess shipping in the pipeplines at the wrong time . Guess what the result was ?

.. Some stuff was late . It happens . It was a business mistake . People will have to answer for it , to be sure . It is not a legal action [a tort] which would leave them vulnernable to lawsuits .

.. Some idiots will file , though . They will be dismissed , evetually , but not after the companies incur some legal bills as a result . Oh , Well . That is why we need tort reform …

… Regrettably , Steven A. , It is What Happens [to Black Conservatives] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 19th,2013

.. these days liberals , especially Black liberals , are the height of intolerant . Why ?

.. [link] to Steven A. Smith ‘ s commentary …

.. to most folks , black conservatives help contribute to the intellectual fabric , by helping contribute to and feed the debate . With black liberals ,however , it is most definitely not the case . They feel threatened by black conservatives . They feel that black conservatives are a grievous threat to their power and their influence .

.. So , what happens ? They are mocked and ostracized , sent to the never – land of the black community , not to be dealt with . They are that afraid of them . While that happens , the black conservative community continues to grow in size and influence …

.. Sooner or later , the black community will have to take note of these folks . They cannot ignore them . These conservatives are among the most vigorous intellectuals , creative artists , athletes , and thinkers , no matter what the skin color . They cannot and will not be ignored , Steven A. Smith …

… What Could E.S.P.N. have found Wrong with This ?!?! [Charitable Christian Ad] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 15th,2013

.. there will be several links with this one . The place where I live has DirecTV , and it does not have ESPN (rats) …

.. I heard about this controversy , courtesy of being a fan of the O ‘ Reilly Factor on FoxNewsChannel . Bill caught this one , and hammered ESPN for it . I can understand these folks wanting to be non – controversial , but jeezus …

[h/t–theBlaze.com]

.. [link] to Bill ‘ s commentary on the controversy ..
.. [link] to the ad ..

[h/t — CNSnews.com]

.. [link] to the video and the article …

.. the ad is a charitable Christian – based ad for the Cardinal Glennon Children ‘ s Foundation . They are raising funds , as they often do , for their foundation , and for the Cardinal Glennon Children ‘ s Medical Center , a Catholic – based hospital in St. Louis , Missouri . They wanted to buy time on ESPN to promote their cause during the Christmas season . No biggie , there . Or , so you would think . ESPN rejected the ad . Why ?

.. I think that it was for its ” overly ” religious content . Also , the ad encouraged people to visit the foundation ‘ s website , and write sympathetic and empathetic messages for children , if possible , ones with a religious basis . These days , TV channels behave like a bunch of wussies . They run like hell away from anything that they think might or could be controversial . It seems that religion , amazingly enough , is a controversial subject . Why ? …

… the Impact of Janet Napolitano s Departure …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 14th,2013

.. Janet Napolitano is stepping down as Homeland Security secretary to take a plum job as president of the University of California. Her departure will have a large  impact on the immigration debate.

.. Napolitano became the bête noire of the right early in the administration. Certainly she bollixed up an early terrorist incident, the Christmas bomber, by proclaiming the “system worked.” She also raised the ire of conservatives by virtue of a footnote in a Homeland Security report. The Washington Times reported then:

.. A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of  Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.

.. “It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says.

.. Napolitano subsequently conceded the language was inappropriately broad and apologized to veterans (although not single-issue conservative groups).

Nevertheless, the image of a crusader out to get the right stuck.

.. The real fury however concerned her role in the Obama administration’s immigration policy, including the president’s unilateral action allowing children brought to the country by illegal immigrant parents to stay here. The legal case of Crane v Napolitano has challenged the finding , and a federal judge has made a ruling , but has not made an injunction , to find that the policy is inconsistent with the law . It means that , potentially , the policy is illegal , and will be overturned .

.. The inconsistent record of deportations also irked her critics, and her criticism of Arizona’s immigration law (later found to be unconstitutional in part) only made matters worse. Most recently, her department was immersed in a sexual harassment scandal.

.. In the ongoing immigration debate, conservatives have raised doubts that she and the president could be trusted to enforce border security measures. Her departure deprives immigration critics of a target. If her replacement commands respect from conservatives, immigration reform may be easier.

.. She has done a great deal of damage to the cause of homeland security . The department needs a steady hand at the helm . What they also need is a steady hand at the hel at the White House .

.. Any selection – interim or permanent – to replace Secretary Napolitano must disavow these aggressive non-enforcement directives or there is very little hope for successful immigration reform. Whoever replaces Secretary Napolitano must restore the rule of law, as well as the morale of ICE officers which has plummeted under her tenure.
