Iowa board votes to end ‘tele-med’ abortions used by rural women

Way to go, Iowa Board!

I completely agree. Yes, women in America have been given the legal right to kill and abort their unborn children if they don’t want to be pregnant. (No, it is not just a blob of flesh.  See?  AND, were you aware of the face that they actually kill the fetus first? If not, check out this and this, for the various methods used.)

Let me exercise my right to opine a moment.

Yes, Women have the right to have an abortion.

However!  An abortion

  • is not guaranteed to be easy to get.
  • it is not guaranteed to be as convenient as going to the neighborhood drug store.
  • It is not guaranteed to be paid for.

A woman in America is guaranteed the right to an abortion.

But, the way that I see it, if there is 1 (one) clinic/hospital in the entire country that performs abortions, every woman in America is having this right met.  IF she can get there, and IF she can afford it, she can have it done.

And if she can’t, she can’t.

Is life fair?  No.

Does everyone always get what they want?  No.

I am so blamed tired of having this smeared in my face.  And you have no idea how furious I am about having had to pay for them.  And when did choosing not to carry a child to term become a “reproductive health” issue?  I thought those were things like endometriosis and cervical cancer.

Here is the answer to most abortion cases:

Don’t have sex unless you are married.

Simple!  AND it works!!!!

And when did we, in this once so great country of ours, get to the point that murder is an o.k. form of birth control?

The right to not be killed supersedes the right to not be pregnant.

If only their rights counted.

Distasteful Commercial by RAC

August 8, 2013
Dear Lisa

Rent-A-Center has joined other companies in tasteless advertising. Its latest commercial begins with a man and woman walking into their store wearing nothing (their fronts and backs are pixellated) but obvious they are both n*ked. The commercial ends with a n*de man lying on a sofa with one leg propped up exposing a pixellated cr*tch.

This isn’t a first for Rent-A-Center. Rent-A-Center is following a trend in crude commercials. Their last offensive commercial had a male wearing a pair of women’s th*ng p*nties peeking out over his daisy dukes while wearing a cropped tank top.

This ad is airing as early as 6:00 pm ET/5:00 pm CT when children are likely watching. It is airing on numerous networks including family channels. This ad is vile and disgusting; Rent-A-Center should be ashamed of themselves.

TAKE ACTION
If you agree this commercial is inappropriate please send Rent-A-Center this email letter asking them to pull their pixellated ad immediately.
Let them hear from you even if you do not have a Rent-A-Center located near you to help put a stop to this trend that so many companies are following.

Take it one step further and give Rent-A-Center a call at 1-800-665-5510 for Customer Service or 1-800-422-8186 at their Headquarters.

I do not watch TV, so have not seen it, but find it is beyond my comprehension how any company could possibly, by any stretch of the imagination perceive this as acceptable.

We have a son, now grown, so I certainly understand parents of smaller children being upset about this.  I am an adult, and I don’t want to see it.

I can not believe the things that are being found acceptable today.  I remember a time when simply distasteful was wrong.  Am I “Old School”?  Yep.  Does that bother me?  Not in the least.  This means that I have a sense of morals, that I know right from wrong and stand on this; this means that I do not sit by and  watch injustices saying, “I don’t want to get involved” or “It’s none of my business!”  or “It is o.k.  Everybody is doing it” or even “Well, they deserve it.  They are so nerdy!” or “They are just having some fun” like a person is a toy to be used as you desire then thrown away.

I believe in decency, modesty, and love. Respect your elders, defend America and family, and G-d.  And don’t you dare talk about Mama.  (Yeah, I’m southern, too.)  I believe like this song.

“Old School”:  THAT is the American way.  And has been since 1776.  No real American  would want to change it.  Ever.

Yeah.

A Problem With Amazon, and How They Fixed It

http://www.amazon.com/ref=gno_logo

I have had problems with Amazon since I opened an account, and somehow they allowed me to inadvertently create a second account on the same e-mail address.

I wound up with two separate accounts attached to one e-mail.  I did not know this for a while.  I would go there and start going through my password list until I got one that worked.  I did not realize there were two until I started downloading books to my Kindle for PC and noticed that I was missing books I knew I had bought.

I called Amazon to find out where my books were and my customer service rep informed me they were in another account.  And he could not swap them over.  This was problematic in that I had the Kindle app in one account, and had joined Prime in the other.   The customer service rep informed me that I was unable to merge the two.  Oh, well.  I have books in both accounts, but at least I can read them.  As inconvenient as this in itself is, with Prime and Kindle separated the chance to borrow books is out the window, if the Kindle for PC app is eligible for borrowing.

And then today

I had had enough of it and called Amazon to ask for my Prime membership to be switched to the account my Kindle for PC is on.   The customer service rep told me that this was not possible because there had been no purchases made on the Kindle for PC account.  They had all been made on the other one.  UNLESS I canceled Prime with a prorated refund then rejoined on the other account for the full amount.  They could swap the Kindle for PC to the other account, but I would have to re-purchase all of my books.

After much explaining and making sure that anyone listening to the recorded conversation knew that I thought Amazon was doing me extremely dirty, was just out for my money and not trying to help me AT ALL, AND that they were the ones that allowed this to happen after all, the extremely nice man we were dealing with had me hold on while he made a call and got it straightened out.

The policy about this is a very bad one.  Everything I could find on this situation says that it is not supposed to be able to happen.  Only one account is allowed per e-mail.  I did not do this on purpose.  THEY allowed it.   They did, however, take a huge step toward remedying  their error tonight.

I am very grateful to their Customer Service rep as well as his Supervisor.  V E R Y grateful.  V E R Y, V E R Y, V E R Y grateful.

And I am again happy with Amazon.

The moral of this story is this:

I messed up by not keeping up with my account info.  THEY messed up by allowing me to create two accounts on one email address.  By my perseverance and making sure they were fully aware of my extreme displeasure with their company was my situation remedied to my satisfaction.

Amazon has its problems.  All companies do.  The important thing is that they were willing to admit it and try to remedy the issues caused by it.

Kudos to Amazon.  And to the Customer Service guys.  You are G R E A T!

Do you have a great customer service hero story like this?  How about a customer service horror story?   Leave a comment telling us about it.
