God help America

If Donald Trump is elected President, then this country will no longer stand for anything worthwhile.

I have tried to be a Patriotic American for all of my life. I was a Republican at one time, then a democrat. Most recently my status has been as an Independent. Things change. People change. However, if the majority of the people in this country choose a vile, disgusting, pervert like Donald Trump to be their President, then I will no longer consider myself to be an American.

If the majority of the people in this country care so little about other people, care so little about equality for all, and are so full of hate that they can elect a non-man like Donald Trump, then I am not an American.

What is happening to this country is a damn shame. Cable news cares more about ratings than the United States of American. Republicans care more about kissing NRA butt than the United States of America. It seems too many people are so self-involved that the country doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is their pathetic pet peeves.

Electing Donald Trump will be the lowest thing that has ever happened to this country. Lower than the Civil War and lower than 9/11.

God help America. God help the human race.




Enterprise Rent A Car Epilogue

To Their credit, Enterprise Rent A Car responded quickly to my complaint. I was contacted within the hour on the Internet and then talked voice to a media representative.

So while there was no pin pointing why these events happened, Enterprise took immediate steps to correct the problem and offered to compensate me for my time and distraction.

I work in the technical support arena. I have for a very long time. I know that to a customer perception is reality. And I’ve handled a boat load of crisis, enough to know that it takes the people, the ones who come in contact with the customer, to prevent these kinds of things from bubbling up. These front line people need to be trained that “stuff happens”. (I’m being nice hear).  When stuff happens and they see it, they need to inject themselves into it and fix it, immediately. Otherwise it might rise to a boil.

It seems that Enterprise has matured to a point of having a team of people dedicated to stepping in and dealing with issues that boil over.

The fact that Enterprise has a twenty four hour a day billing cycle, you rent at 10 AM, you return at 10 AM or else you get billed extra hours, is a normal business practice. However they need to insure that the start time, on their billing, begins at the actual time the car is driven off the lot and not the reserved time that can be impacted by weather, standing in line, flight delays or and act of God.


Enterprise Renta-A-Car Fraud or Cheat!

Enterprise Rent a car is engaging in a fraudulent scheme to defraud renters out of money.
I made a car rental reservation for first thing in the morning. I had to drop my car off at an auto body shop down the road at 8AM. When I arrived just after 8 AM to pickup the rental, I was shocked to see the total price was substantially higher that the quote that was emailed to me. 
They told me that the reservation was for 10AM and I was being charged 2 additional hours for picking the car up early!!!!!!!
WHAT!!!!  Doesn’t the rental ‘begin’ when you get the car?
This is out and out fraud.
Renter Beware. Enterprise Rent-A-Car is a FRAUD.

Donald Trump is the real GOP

I hope that people will wake up in time to see that Donald Trump is and always has been the true voice of the GOP. The racism, anti-establishment and anti-woman persona of Donald Trump is exactly what the GOP has stood for, for the past three decades. Previously they just did it in a stealthy way.  Donald Trump simply tore the sheets of the Republican Establishment.

Racism: The Republican Party has always had racist views and racist ideals and leaders. Jim Crow laws (Ref: Wikipedia.org https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws) They mandated de jure racial segregation in all public facilities in states of the former Confederate States of America, starting in 1890 with a “separate but equal” status for African Americans.

Then there was the Republican great, Senator Strom Thurmond, (ref: Wikipredia.org) Thurmond switched parties because of his opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Sen. Thurmond, like Donald Trump was / is a bigots bigot. In opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1957, Sen. Thurmond conducted the longest filibuster ever by a lone senator, at 24 hours and 18 minutes in length, nonstop.

Donald Trump’s father was an aggressive bigot refusing to rent properties to black people and families until the government stepped in. The Trump real estate empire tried for years and years to maintain their white’s only property status until they faced serious federal litigation.

The point being is that Donald Trump is just one of the boys, a master of white supremacy, just like David Duke, but Donald has a lot more money to hide behind.

Anti-Establishment – Republicans say smaller government. What they mean is the government gets in the way of their greed. They want to pollute the air and water with impunity. They want to sell defective tires, tainted meat, poisoned vegetables and toys that kill children without being held responsible. They want to sell medicine in the US at a cost 10 times higher than in Canada. They want banks to be able to rip people off for billions while only getting fines for doing so in the millions.

They want to get rid of FEMA which brings aid to states after a hurricane or other disaster.

Anti-Women – Have you forgotten GOP Congressmen Todd Akian, Missouri (2012)? “Legitimately raped women cannot become pregnant.” Or  “US Senate nominee Richard Mourdock who said, “that life was “something that God intended”, even if the pregnancy was due to rape.” Both men claimed that this is what they were taught in school. The fact is, Red Neck Republicans view women as property just like the ISIS cult does. They want to be able to beat, rape and enslave “their” women.  And Trump’s misogyny, treating women like objects, is just an extension of his Republican upbringing.

Now, maybe, you understand why Paul Ryan cannot denounce Donald Trump. The fact is, that Trump is the true spirit of the Republican Party.
