JUAN WILLIAMS IS RIGHT ON TARGET REGARDING TERRORISM & MUSLIMS!!!!

October 22, 2010

Juan Williams said what most everyone thinks. It’s just that Juan speaks his mind, and with restraint I may add, while others are so worried about Political Correctness, that they are doing a Disservice to the Public by trying to Water down the Issue of Muslim Terrorists. These PC assholes most likely tell their loved ones exactly what to look out for, as Juan Williams alluded to, but in Public, these PC Aholes are 2 Faced. I am sure these spineless bumpkins don’t tell their Loved ones to look out for Hasidic Jews running around with bombs strapped to their bodies, or the Dangerous French running around with Pastry Bombs!!!

NPR is as Spineless as they come, and has other Agendas, such as the relationship they have with Soros, in addition to wanting to get Williams out of there because of his association with Fox 5. The Spineless Asshole who made the call to Williams, and didn’t have enough nerve for a Face to Face, should be Fired. She is one of the Biggest Assholes ever to exist. Hopefully Juan has Legal recourse, not to just get money due him if NPR broke his contract illegally, but to bring NPR on the Carpet, in front of the Whole World to see,  so they can see what Assholes NPR is. And also to continue this story so it doesn’t just become a 1 Day News Blip.

In addition, ALL Public Funding to NPR should STOP Immediately.

NPR, YOU SUCK BIG TIME.

Juan Williams, Good for you. You did a Service to the American People, and you showed that Freedom of Speech is a 2 WAY STREET!!!!

The USA already knew what Juan meant when he said what he said, because the Polls show that 70% of Americans think the exact same thoughts. And it is not about hysteria, BUT about REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Btw, Obama forbidding anyone in his Administration, and restraining others from speaking the following terms >

Islamic Extremists, Jihad, War on Terror, etc. is not working. He wanted the American Public to not use these words, because it showed Islam in a bad light. And he thought the Public would be trained to also not use these words, or relate Terrorism with Muslims. Well, News Flash, The Master Plan Did NOT Work!!!!! Another Bumpkin. Hopefully, he will be a Paper Tiger after the Midterm Elections, and be back in ChiTown in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!! Both Dates can’t come Quick Enough!!! He’s about as Weak on Terrorism as Bill Clinton was……..After all, all the Muslim Terrorist plans that led up to 9/11, occurred on Clinton’s Watch, Not Bush’s……………..

FRANKE & JOEY’S PIZZERIA in FOREST HILLS, NY IS CLOSED….

October 16, 2010

Frankie & Joey’s pizzeria closed down a few months ago. It was a sudden thing. Had pizza on a Tuesday, went back the next week, and POOF!!, it was closed

I gotta say that the Pizza was one of the Best in Forest Hills. That is what I mostly ate. Had the veal a few times, but it was always kinda tough, maybe over cooked? I don’t know. The garlic Knots were great. Made with Real Garlic. The chicken parm was made with real Cutlets, not the Frozen, all the same size crap that many pizza places get from Jethro, and the other warehouse restaurant suppliers.

But the Pizza was just the way I liked it. Thin crust, just the right amount of mozzarella, and a real Tasty Tomato Sauce made with real plum tomatoes right on premise. It was the sauce that made the Pizza great! I know there are those that like thick crusted pizza, loads of mozzarella, etc. But notice the way I said “I” liked it.

I stopped going to A&J years ago, when their Prices became outrageous, and their hero portions became so tiny, like you were eating in a French restaurant or something!! As of a year or so ago, a Chinese guy bought the business, and No Fucking Way am I eating at a Pizza place owned by a Chinaman!!!

Anyway, Good Luck to Frankie & Joey. Thanks for the Good Times (cue music lol!,) the Great Pizza, and may you guys have Great Success in your future endeavors!!!!

SPRINT SUCKS!!!!!!!!

October 12, 2010

Sprint fool its customers?? Say it ain’t so!

Sprint has been fooling its customers for years. It’s getting to be a joke already.

When a customer has a legit complaint, there are the FanBoys and Girls, who are real Tools, that say,

“Sprints is not twisting your arm, if you don’t like it leave. But you’re not going to get a comparable plan that’s cheaper from any other carrier.”

This has been the mantra of the Sprintoholics and the Lemmings for years. Whatever legitimate criticisms & concerns the customer has of Sprint, falls on deaf ears. If you post on the Sprint Forums, the Assholes will come out of the woodwork that work for Sprint and post their Mantras, The FanBoys and Girls will also crawl out of their Caves just to tell you that your criticisms are not valid, and to defend Sprint who “Can do no Wrong, Not our Beloved Sprint.”

So I say keep complaining, and keep criticizing, and if Sprint doesn’t change their deceptive ways, then let there be a fleeing of customers, as that will be the only way Sprint will wake up and treat their customers fairly………….Oh, wait, the fleeing of customers has already began, for the last 3 years…….Sorry, I forgot………

Sprint has thought of all the angles to eventually get ALL their customers on the Newer & Better plans, for the benefit of the Customer. These plans should be called the Newer & More, Much More Expensive Plans, or The Rip Off Plans, or the Screw Plans, as many of us will have to incur Hundreds, and in some cases, Thousands of Dollars more over a 2 year contract period by switching to the more expensive plans, for the Same Exact Features, and in many cases, less features than we already have. Sprint and its Fan Base have never acknowledged this fact, and they never will. But the Customers already know this. The only way to keep your existing plans would be to use a paper cup and string, or rather purchase a clam shell device.

Hey, as long as Hesse gets paid his Million of Dollars in Salary and Commercial fees, everything is ok. Gotta keep that Yacht floating. Hey, NYC can use a guy like that to run the MTA in NYC, along with that other Schmuck running it now………..

NYC AND THE NYPD WASTES TIME & MONEY ON SMALL QUANTITY MARIJUANA ARRESTS

October 9, 2010

See Here >>

NYC Marijuana Possession Arrests Skyrocket, Illustrate NYPD Racial

And NYC continues to be more of a Police State (City), than ever before.

And crime continues to rise, because it has already been proven that these little pot arrests don’t do much at all to prevent crimes.

One of the major reasons the NYPD is making these nonsensical arrests is because they have to show something for their efforts regarding Stop & Frisks, that are occurring at an outrageous rate of over 500,000 per year.

NYC is Truly a Police State, and is getting worse with each passing hour…………

NYC, where the City Motto should be “Rights, what Rights? You have no Rights in NYC!”


BOYCOTT ARUBA, AND SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!!!

October 8, 2010

Don’t forget to continue to Boycott Aruba………………..

The Island where an American Citizen can be Slaughtered, but the Police will Protect the Monster they have in Custody, and release him, as in the Case of Joran van der snot…..errrr sloot. It was because of Aruban authorities that another Innocent girl was killed in Peru. The Aruban police are arguably one of the most corrupt police departments in Mexico, but aren’t they all? Van der snot was the rule, and not the exception. Always remember Natalee Holloway, and the Mis-Carriage of justice shown to her and her Family.

No one is safe on this Island, and Aruba is not the Paradise it used to be. The ocean waters may still be blue-green and the sands a pearly white, But the Island is laden with Criminals, just waiting to attack unsuspecting Visitors. The Island is laden with Corruption, and No Doubt, the Mexican Cartels are a Huge influence there, and if you think they don’t, you’d better think again.

Aruba is Extremely Dangerous, and you are not safe  there. The Police will NOT help you. You will be all alone if something should happen to you. You will be at the Mercy of the Predators that lurk around Aruba. Mexico in general, is a Crime ridden Country, and don’t think that Aruba is a Safe Haven. It used to be 20 years ago, but it no Longer is.

Stay as far away from Aruba, and Mexico in general, because your life and the lives of your loved ones may depend on it……………

OBAMA WILL USE BUSH AS A SCAPECOAT REGARDING THE RECORD UNEMPLOYMENT RATE!!!

October 8, 2010

Unemployment is at 9.6%. This is highest rate since the 1930’s!!!!!

No doubt that Obama and his Spinners will put the blame on Bush, and talk about some ‘car in a ditch’ again. I think Obama should get a pair of Hip Waiting boots and a shovel himself, so he can start digging himself out of the Pile of Bullshit he’s been accumulating…………

Obama will blame Bush when things go wrong, and take credit when, and if, things go right. This was spoken about when Obama took office, and is well documented in his boring speeches.

November can’t come quick enough, and neither can 2012……………….

PILA IBC CHARGER WARRANTY IS VOIDED IF PILA BATTTERIES ARE NOT USED!!!

October 6, 2010

Pila USA is the designated USA distributor for Pila IBC Li-ion chargers, which are made in China.  There are a few Li-ion chargers available, but this charger appears to be safer than the rest, and charges to a proper cc/cv algorithm. If you read around the web, the Pila is the recommended charger for a simple plug & play charger that is safe and works.

While I have not heard of any Pila IBC charging beyond 4.2V  +/- .5 volts, which is Excellent and makes this charger very safe, there are inconsistencies regarding the cut off voltage that can vary  between 4.02v – 4.20v. Some users get a consistent 4.18v-4.19v while others are getting 4.10-4.15v. And then there are some that charge to less than 4.1v

The issue is the following >>

If you Do Not Use Pila Batteries, and you use the Pila IBC charger with other Li-ion batteries, the Pila Warranty will be VOIDED!!!

You will NOT receive Support from Pila USA or any of its Distributors!! They will absolve themselves of ALL Liability, including, but not limited to malfunctions, injuries, damage to equipment, etc.

The problem with this is that :

Pila USA nor its Distributors post the above anywhere on their web sites. There is NO WARNING regarding the Hazards of using their chargers with non Pila batteries, and there is NO NOTICE regarding NO WARRANTY and NO SUPPORT if you use Non Pila batteries! The only sentence that is posted on their website, that is extremely remotely related, is the following >

‘The IBC 4-stage Charger is specially designed to work with Pila Li-ion batteries.’

This sentence ‘may’ absolve  Pila  of any liability issues (although I would like to see it tested in a court of law,) but I would say that this sentence is ambiguous at best, and deceptive.

Pila and its distributors are more than happy to sell their chargers to customers who do not use their Pila batteries, but they do not post the above Warnings or Notices anywhere on their websites, which you would think would be very important for potential customers to be aware of.

Pila is aware that they sell many more chargers as compared to their batteries, and are aware that many people are using their chargers to charge non Pila Li-ion Batteries. It is obviously great for sales, and there is nothing wrong with making Money $$$$.

So why doesn’t Pila USA take a more pro active stance regarding Warning people of the potential Hazards and Dangers in using their chargers with non Pila batteries, and why don’t they post on their website that the Warranty will be Voided if you use other than Pila batteries??? MONEY, that’s why. It’s all about the Dollar. If they were to post a simple WARNING,  and also post the fact that your newly purchased coveted Pila IBC charger will have NO WARRANTY and NO SUPPORT if you use other than Pila batteries, Sales would Plummet. And that is the only reason I can think of. Hell, it’s not even about taking a Pro Active stance, but about an Obligation to potential customers to warn them of the Dangers of using their charger with non pila batteries.

There are those that already know about the dangers and no warranty if used with other batteries, but many more people who do not. Pila USA and its Distributors have an obligation to post this information on their website, and cannot assume that customers are already aware of the Hazards, and that there  is No Warranty in effect if you do not use Pila batteries.

Pila makes a Big Issue on these points when you call in for support, or for a Warranty issue, and then they tell you, in a nice way, to go take a Hike! But when you want to make a purchase of their IBC charger, you don’t get any advanced warning when you order from their website because there is NONE!!

Pila USA, step up to the plate, and post these Warnings and Notices. Jeeeze, all you have to do is post 2 simple things >

– There is No Warranty if the Pila IBC charger is used with other than Pila batteries

– Using the Pila IBC charger with other than Pila batteries may cause great bodily harm, and or damage to surrounding property.

Or something to that effect. Yeah, I guess if you did post this information, your sales would take a slight tumble. So whats more important, the well-being of potential customers, or the Dollar???? Mmmmmmm…..food for thought. I’ll leave that for potential customers to decide. I think Pila USA already told us Their answer. Hey, their distributors are not absolved of any liability either, as they should also post these WARNINGS and NOTICES. But they too, wash their hands of all Liability, and tell you to call Pila USA, if you should have an issue.

While many IBC chargers operate properly, there are some that don’t. Just like other pieces of electronic equipment, sometimes there will be units that are faulty. BUT Pila distributors will make every excuse in the book regarding Voltages, Faulty Meters, Bad batteries, user error, etc. in order to not blame their chargers. The Great Wall in China will look like a Stair Step, compared to the Wall you will slam into when dealing with Pila distributors regarding Warranty issues. If you used Pila batteries, I wonder if they would throw their wall of blame on  the above excuses as I mentioned, or if an exchange would be an easier process, if you mentioned the charger was faulty. I would guess the ladder.

We cannot rely on Pila US to inform us of the pitfalls of owning their charger, and many on the web make excuses for Pila because they have a financial stake in selling Pila Equipment and/or collect Advertising revenue. Many people on the web, and in numerous forums will be asked by Pila IBC users why their chargers are charging at inconsistent cut-offs. They will get a lot of technical information as excuses as for the reason for the inconsistencies such as >

Faulty meters, Old batteries, New batteries, Ambient temperatures, Non calibrated meters, Wrong batteries, Pila IBC is the best charger, User error, and the list goes on and on. While it is true that in some instances, any of the above can be a reason or reasons for the inconsistent cut off voltages, I have another reason that is never mentioned as to why the Pila IBC charges inconsistently: Maybe because it is a sensitive piece of electronic equipment that is produced in the thousands, and manufactured in China, and maybe, just maybe, there may be an out of box failure now and then. How does that sound? Is it possible that there may be defects in some of the units that are sold? Yeah, I think there may be, but you will never here that as a reason from Anyone, including Pila and its distributors.

The issues with the Pila IBC have more to do with charging cut-off inconsistencies, than being dangerous. I have not heard of any instances where the Pila IBC created a dangerous circumstance when used with non Pila cells. But, as I mentioned before, Pila will not forget to verbally tell you that they are not responsible for anything, including dangerous occurrences, and or warranty issues if the charger is not used with Pila batteries, when you contact them.

We have to rely on users such as myself to put the word out, in order to possibly help potential customers make a more informed decision before they purchase the IBC charger, and find out that there is No Warranty, and more importantly, that the charger may be Dangerous to use if you do not use the proprietary batteries that Pila sells. In addition, you may save yourself around $50.00, the cost of the Pila IBC charger.

I would guesstimate that 1 person out of 20 will purchase Pila Batteries, and why is that? Because Pila cells can cost as much as $28.00, when AW cells, say an 18650 2900mAh cell will only cost you $18.00 each. Redilast sells cells for about the same cost as AW. Both cells are very high caliber, and respected by users. Pila wants you to think their cells are much better than the competition, but they are NOT. In fact, the 2900mAh 18650 cells are made from cells and pcb’s manufactured by Panasonic, and then assembled over seas. Pila batteries are also made overseas, in CHINA, just as their Pila IBC charger is. There are Li-ion cells which are not as safe as others, or are more problematic, such as Trustfire cells (cost much less than AW and Redilast) , etc. and Pila USA likes to say that ALL the other cells can be Dangerous, as compared to Pila batteries. This is TOTAL BULLSHIT, and they are trying to get you to purchase their Chinese batteries at over 50% of the cost of AW & Redilast, for example. Of course, stay away from Li-ion batteries where the name is like BonFire, LumaFire, Hotfire, SpitFire, etc. You get the idea. Their are many Chinese manufactures whose Li-ion batteries are very dangerous. But AW and Redilast are some of the finest batteries made.

As I said, few people use Pila Li-ion batteries, and if Pila USA had to depend on their Pila battery sales to pay their bills, they’d have a slight problem. It is their Pila IBC charger which is their bread & butter. And Pila USA knows this, and knows it well.

In fact, Pila representatives actually push their chargers to be used with other cells, and say their charger is the best on the market. This is what they tell you when you speak to the reps. But they don’t tell you about the Warranty & Dangers until after you call in for Support. And then even when you call for support, they will tell you that you gave up your rights to any warranty claims when you used other than Pila batteries, but you still have the best charger for the Job.

Nice racket, eeerrr…… business, Pila USA has, don’t they? So Be Informed, Be Aware, and make the Best Decision for yourself, and make sure you know what you are getting into, before you make a purchase. And don’t waste your money on Pila Li-ions when there are batteries available that are equal to or better then them.

As an alternative, you may want to take a look at the charger below. While not a plug & play charger, it will charge your Li-ion cells, as well as other types of chargeable batteries, has multiple user settings, has an on board digital display, in addition to many other user friendly features. I have not used the Turnigy myself, but have read only positive reviews from users who do.
