The Pope's Hypocrisy

The speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, went to visit the Pope... he proceded to lecture her on the morals of abortion and assisted suicide.
The Vatican says the pope lectured Pelosi about abortion and assisted suicide. Pelosi says they talked about poverty and global warming -- and she showed him pictures of her grandchildren.

"His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death," the Holy See said in a statement.

Benedict emphasized that "all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society" should work to create "a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development."
Before he preaches about "natural moral law" he should have thought twice about reinstating neo-Nazi Bishop Richard Williamson. I know of no higher "natural moral law" than the lesson we learned from the Holocaust.

Get me a plane to Idaho

I wanna go whack the kneecaps of a guy who is the real-life Roman Grant.


"Roman" is a large-scale investor and business-type whom owns a home alarm security company based in Idaho. 4 years ago, in a moment of stupidity, my wife and I signed a 3 year contract with this company in return for a free installation. After a long drawn out process, we thought we had finally terminated the contract and gotten them out of our hair for good. Roman's company was notorious for not answering their phones for tech support or billing issues, as well as never following up on providing documentation for charges.

Today we got a collection notice for $450 because we closed the bank account they were still continuing to steal $43 from a month direct withdrawal. They had not only continued to bill us, but they had also taken the lump sum we negotiated to buy out the contract and essentially never gave us the buy out. We filed a BBB complaint, which was never acknowledged or resolved, and later closed for inactivity by the company.

So I've been on a phone & computer for most of the morning trying to get a live human or other contact information. I'm considering small claims, but it's pretty intimidating. I'm waiting for the lawyer to call back, which if I'm lucky we'll be able to break even on if he can settle this nonsense.
