Once Again… A MAN Invented It

Got a new iphone 4 from my boyfriend today.  I was giddy with excitement and I love him to death for it.  He got a really good deal when upgrading our phones.  He got the phones at no cost but the monthly bill went up a bit of course for the services.  I was really excited and ready to pick out some cool decal skins for it.

Until……

The little fucker arrived and I don’t like the touch screen at all.  I have nails.  At least on my Sprint Rumor Touch it let me tap the screen with my nails and it recognized or sensed the touch.  Plus I had a slide out key board thingy and could use the corner of my nails to type with both hands.  On this iphone 4 it does NOT sense my nails AT ALL.  So I have to turn my fingers to the side so that it will sense my fingers.  No more slide out keyboard so I’m typing like a drunk retard on it.  With one hand.  Many mistakes.  Having to re-type over and over and over.  Takes me forever just to get a damn sentence written.  Then… then…. THEN…. I’ll hit the “send” button like 800 god damned times and it still won’t send.  I’ve tried lightly touching, hard touching, tapping, sliding, holding, you name it.  The iphone says FUCK YOU Martingirl.

Yes I know there is a voice command thing on there somewhere but I really don’t want to have to do a voice command for every single text because sometimes it won’t be appropriate to talk out loud into my phone.

Hey high tech man nerds, do me a favor, when you invent cool shit like this why don’t you test it out on other people of all ages and sexes many, many, many times to see if others can use your invention.  Others besides people with fingers the size of a 5 year old.  Mmm k?  Thanks.

**UPDATE:  So I went into work and went on the hunt for women with an iphone or galaxy with long nails.  One girl showed me and now I’m texting much better.  I finally mastered that send button and how to touch it.  THANK GOD.  I’m still only typing with one hand so I’m still slower on this thing but everyone says I’ll get used to it and it will get easier.  Good.

Of course I love the bigger screen, the way the text conversations look and ease of getting to messages and other tools on the phone.  much easier than all the menus and hoop jumping on my other phone.  The internet actually looks like the internet on this thing compared to my other phone.  So yes, I do like the iphone.  I must have given my Rambo a headache at first when I was trying to text and my pissing and moaning.  heh.  I love you so much baby and I really am grateful.  Thank you for your patience with me.

From Helping People to Destroying People

Once upon a time unions had their place.  They have helped the lives of many and helped shaped better working environments for people.  Over the years this organization has turned into greedy, overpaid thugs who destroy everything.

Of course some people think unions are good to make things “fair” and consistently force pay raises for their members.  Businesses cannot operate that way.  They cannot pay everyone 70k a year with HUGE pensions and pay for everything to keep their business afloat.  Unions slow down profits, work productivity and progress.  They damage healthy communication between the employer and the employee.  They claim the employers are greedy (I’m not denying some are) when they are greedy themselves.  These union bosses make a shit load of money.  They make their money off the backs of the workers making them pay dues.  All the while speaking on behalf of the workers even against the workers will without a say in their own negotiations.

We are in a time where we no longer have sweat shops.  We have safety procedures, fire escapes, osha, child labor laws, work/lunch breaks, laws against discrimination, human resources departments, and on and on today.  There is NO NEED for unions.

So this whole thing with Hostess… damn shame.  The company is working in a shitty ass economy and in order to save jobs wanted to have workers take an 8% cut in pay.  They were not being greedy, they were trying to save their company and their employees jobs.  But of course the union goes crazy, has a strike and calls their bluff.  Hostess delivered by then announcing the shutdown of everything, filing for bankruptcy and liquidating everything.  18,000 people now out of work in the blink of an eye.  I would have gladly taken an 8% pay cut over being UNEMPLOYED IN THIS ECONOMY.  Guess who still has their jobs?  The union.  Nice work.

I saw this on Twitter, “Twinkies made it thought the Great Depression and World War II, but couldn’t withstand Obama.”  So true.  But then, I’m sure Michelle (tell us what to eat) Obama is very happy.

State Run Media and Priorities

Remember those members of the U.N. who were sent here to observe our voting process?  An article I read said they couldn’t understand why we are not required to show proof of ID to vote and that we allow mail in ballots and even some online voting.  They were surprised at quite a lot of things actually.

This time the USDA delayed its release nine days past the semi-official deadline, far past the election, and until Friday night to report August food stamp data. One glance at the number reveals why: at 47.1 million, this was not only a new all-time record, but the monthly increase of 420,947 from July was the biggest monthly increase in one year.

Sandy victims still without power and supplies.  Some reports I saw say that there is a lot of red tape going on.  Things like supplies just sitting in areas and not being distributed.

Then of course there is Benghazi.  Yes remember that?  Four Americans die in a seven hour dog fight after being told stand down while drones fed it all live to Washington D.C.  SEVEN HOURS.  Then the world told for weeks it was a video to be blamed.

These things are not being reported on our state run media I guess because well… it’s not news?  Not important?  Don’t want to hurt President Lady Parts reputation?  Yet an affair involving decorated military generals is on the front of every web page, newspaper and TV station for two straight days and I’m guessing many more to come.  So very pleased that America has its priorities straight.  ‘Cause well… I was confused as to what we should be focusing on to help our country and its citizens.

What’s Really Offensive Here?

I find it pretty rich that the democratic party finds the word “binders” is offensive to women when they put out ads that pander to women and sexualize the voting process.  Really dems?  What a great example for young girls, how proud you must be.

Yes, I get that the ad is meant to be hip and funny but seriously… you find the term “binders” offensive yet you put out ads like this?

I love that we are focusing on these oh so important topics critical to the country like paying for slutty women’s birth control with my tax dollars.

Meanwhile in unreported news for unimportant topics for the country…..

I’m Not the Average Girlfriend

A couple of months ago I had a texting conversation with my Rambo.  I kept meaning to post it but weeks of work travel took up my focus.

Rambo:  I registered to vote today.

Me:  You did?

Rambo:  Yeah I needed to get that done so I could vote in Texas now.

Me:  That’s hot.  You are turning me on.

The Crowds Getting Bigger

Capping a day of rallies in Florida, Mitt Romney attracted one of the biggest crowds of his campaign Saturday night in Land O’ Lakes, Fla., speaking before an estimated 15,000 people.  Nice.
