Legal Data Theft

We received a statement from our auto insurance company the other day. Getting ready to throw most of it in the trash can, we noticed on the last page, in small print, was a form to fill out and mail back to them if you do not want your information sold to third parties. Really!?

This is completely backwards and must be changed!

Companies make millions of dollars selling our data. It is OURS! Where is our compensation?

This highlights one thing Congress can do to help fight to protect our personal information. We should not have to fill out a form to tell any business not to sell our data. Vice – versa, they should have to ask us first if we will allow them to sell it.

Make it illegal to sell any personal data without explicit permission up front. The assumption, if any, should always be NO!

McFind A Different Job

“Committed to being America’s best first job”.

That’s what the latest McDonalds commercial claims. I laughed, because I knew it is but an empty lie, a marketing ploy.

I recently wrote (Save Ourselves from the Robots!) of McDonald’s installing kiosks in their stores so you, the customer, has to place your own order. I was trying to figure out how to pay for my order when a girl from behind the counter walked over to help me. I looked at her and said “you know, this is going to take your job!” She just kept on doing her job, and very well at that.

Now today I read in the news (surprise, surprise) that McDonald’s has announced their plan to lay off workers to make way for these kiosks! Read article here

I will NOT do business at any McDonald’s that operates these kiosks.

I support the need for businesses to be profitable, but not at the expense of employing humans. What McDonald’s is doing is out of corporate greed and stupidity.

Euthanize All Pit Bull Dogs

I have been studying this issue for years. I read practicly every week of another death in the U.S. attributed to a Pit Bull dog. There is simply no rational reason for these animals to be allowed to live among the population. Besides, like all other breeds, they are a man-made breed. This mistake must be corrected, and the Pit Bull breed should become extinct.

“Infant mauled to death” May 2018

A common defense of the dogs by their owners are that they are actually “so sweet”. Well, that is because they are a dog. Dogs by nature appear sweet to the ones they recognize as their dominant person. But Pit Bulls also have a nature in them that simply isn’t compatible with being a pet: they are extremely territorial and protective.

In addition to that nature they also have physical abilities no other breed has. This combination make all Pit Bulls a walking time bomb.

While these characteristics might make a perfect junk yard guard dog, unfortunately it doesn’t prevent people from stupidly choosing them as a pet.

How many little babies have to be mauled to death because they were seen as an intruder by these savage animals? How many people must die for doing nothing but going for a jog on a public road?

It seems absolutely insane to me that every city and county has not outlawed this breed yet.

Here are a few recent examples of this breed’s savagery:

Save Ourselves From the Robots

I am a robot hater. I have only recently realized this, but I am.

I read the comments by the spokesperson for a robot manufacturer saying that robots will not destroy jobs, but rather create jobs. That is a bold face lie, but of course that is exactly what they would say, isn’t it?

I just walked out of a McDonalds where I went to simply purchase a coke. I walked up to one of 3 empty cash registers and waited. Finally a girl walked up to one and instead of taking my order walked me across the store to a kiosk where she tapped the buttons to order me one large coke. She said “that is $1.07”, so I handed her two dollar bills. She then walked the bills back across the store to the empty cash registers and got my change, and handed me an empty cup.

Are you serious?

We now have driverless cars and trucks. Cashiers are quickly on their way out the door. Thank Walmart for all the self checkout lines that are eliminating thousands of jobs. Right now a large percentage of the work done at warehouse companies (Amazon) is done by robots. Cars are mostly built by robots. Some cities have trains with no drivers. Boeing Corp. recently began work on an airliner that has no pilots!

This is just scratching the surface of what this means for us. Elon Musk was quoted recently in an article on CNBC.com, saying “There certainly will be job disruption. Because what’s going to happen is robots will be able to do everything better than us. … I mean all of us. Yeah, I am not sure exactly what to do about this”.

If a company can operate using robots they will. The bottom line to corporations is profit for their shareholders, and they all hate employees.

Citi to Replace 10,000 Workers

McDonalds recently exhibited a model store that was entirely robot operated. No cashiers, no cooks, no managers! And this is supposed to be a good thing? This is also the plan at Wendy’s (Wendys to replace workers).

So I hate robots.

A robot operated world is a reality quickly coming to pass, unless we stop it. We can stop doing business with these corporations. From now on if I walk into any business that forces me to deal with a computer screen instead of a person, I will turn around and walk out. Yes, it will become more and more a hastle, but it’s still my money!

This is not a silly concern, this is about our future.
