I’ve been listening and subscribing to this show for years and I’m going to start plugging it more with my own clips here since I don’t use bookface.
Well, here we go folks. The ignorant powers that be, think the Landover Maryland Redskins need yet ANOTHER FOOTBALL STADIUM. That’s right. Now MD, VA, and DC are all fighting to get this stadium put in their region….
This whole idea is so stupid it makes my head explode. Is this the freakin twilight zone?
I could not take it. I left a comment:
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?! REALLY?! This area and the NFL (the rape artistes of ignorant fans) need another stadium?? OF ALL THE THINGS THIS AREA NEEDS… we’re going to have ANOTHER STADIUM? This just reinforces the fact that this is the STUPIDEST area in which I have ever lived.
The traffic is so bad here, the taxes are too high, the team sucks (and yes, poorly named, just admit it already), the metro is crumbling and poorly managed, AND WE NEED ANOTHER FOOTBALL STADIUM? Are you people high or is there some secret Kool-Aid you are all drinking that makes this seem charming or even acceptable? (Head in hands). This is truly the absolute STUPIDEST thing I’ve ever heard of for the DC metro region.
Watch. Knowing how ignorant the priorities and planning seem to be here in the DMV, they will put this atrocity (whatever it looks like, another football stadium is an ugly idea) in an area that cant support the traffic and there will be no reasonable public transit near it. And what do we do with fedex field and RFK? How many more useless stadiums need to dot the already messed up landscape of nightmarish sprawl around here?
Folks, this whole idea of ANOTHER football stadium in this area PROVES that this is the dumbest place in the freaking developed world. What next? A public shooting range on the national mall?!? Ahh the DMV… land of entitled and rewarded INCOMPETENCE AND IGNORANCE!!!!
And even worse, look how delusional this architect views the weather in DC for football. Imagine laying on a fake “moat beach” while a tsunami comes in. Imagine all the drunk football fans rappelling down the side of the stadium during football games, while drunk fans in roller blades wearing booty shorts and tank tops skate around the stadium in December! All they need now are aqua-unicorns dancing in the moat. Was this done by a 5 year old with photo shop? Clearly SOMEBODY is high on SOMETHING!!!
They should show the above ground metro rail behind it (like down at RFK stadium) whizzing by in flames with people screaming out the windows in agony! That would be more appropriate! Too late, I did it myself! HA!
My GOD this town is a freaking joke! I can’t believe these images were seriously posted to the Washington Post and CBS. It’s like an alternate reality of stupidity!
I know we’ve been saying this for years. We have been validated by the source now. That scares me.
Ah… Washington DC Metro area (you too, Maryland and Virginia)… This is such a land of victims. Apparently, if you run a red light, it’s the light’s fault. If you open doors (by pressing the wrong button) on the wrong side of the metro train, it’s the button’s fault. This is so disgusting, it makes my head explode.
Today there was this article:
I was so disgusted when I read this article I almost punched my computer monitor!! I, of course, left a comment!
This is the biggest bunch of bull I have ever heard in my entire freakin life!
“big rush-rush culture” of metro? ARE YOU SERIOUS? I NEVER SEE ANY METRO OPERATOR OR EMPLOYEE RUSH FOR A N Y T H I N G! Where is this coming from? Is this some alternate reality? This is completely insane!!!!!
Why they run red lights? Cause they can! Why do they open doors on wrong side of the train? Because they can!
TURN THEM OVER! They run a red light! FIRE THEM! They open doors on the wrong side? FIRE THEM! The culture of laziness, and constantly crying victim IS THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE PART OF WMATA. There are thousands of people who want those jobs and can do them better. Ya run a red light? You press the wrong button and open doors on wrong side. YOU ARE FIRED! PERIOD! It’s not the button’s fault, it’s not the red light’s fault, it’s not this mysterious “rush rush culture”… its NEGLIGENCE, LAZINESS, UNACCOUNTABILITY AND COMPLETE LACK OF CONCERN AND WORK ETHIC. FIRED! FIRED! FIRED! (idiots)
Fuck you Washington Metro Area Transit Authority. Fuck you DC! Fuck you Maryland! Fuck you Virginia! Fuck every single ounce of you!
Man up, admit you suck and it’s your own fault, then start the building process and quit blaming everything but yourself. You gutless pussies!
Once again, the racists, bigots, drunks and pill popping unemployed of Philadelphia get a free pass to trash the city in a mummers parade. Here we go again. I saw the Caitlyn Jenner bit on TV at the Liberty Bell diner that morning. As soon as I saw it, I could hear other people in the diner gasping and saying, “oh, thats a problem” and “can they do that?”
Ahh Philly. Land of the bigot. Hate to post this again, but here’s the passyunk ave fountain in south philly. Almost looks like a troop of “wenches” or “fancies” or whatever they call drunk racists who get off on dressing like women (rather than confess they aren’t man enough to admit they are gay).
It’s time for Philadelphia to do the right thing and end this parade, or open it to the general public (minimizing the affect of the racists “mummers” spectacle). Besides, no one cares or even knows what a “mummer” means (even the idiots that do it don’t know and cant explain it).
Here’s an article in the Washington Post that does what every media outlet does with class warfare, TURNS IT INTO A RACE ISSUE.
I left a comment. This is what I wrote:
This is what I have learned about Maryland as a state. It isn’t about race folks. The media constantly raises the race issue to hide the real issue. Maryland is extremely talented at propping up their rich constituents. They tax the crap out of the poor and middle class and pump up the rich in this state so much, it is visibly disgusting. Look at the heliports behind the mansions in Howard county.
Maryland is a state that relies on people driving cars EVERYWHERE. If you ever wondered why, just re-license your car in another state, then come back to license your car in Maryland and notice how much it costs. This is probably the most expensive state to transfer a drivers license. The govt makes too much money on this. They WANT us to sit in our cars. It’s too much of a cash cow for the state. It’s all about roads and parking and driving and people complaining about their commutes. You see the license plate honoring our farm land, but really it’s just a ruse for another Maryland “fake city”/”town centre” and sprawl with no reasonable means of accessibility. Look at Montgomery County with its little pockets of fake plastic urban existence (fake cities), with NOTHING in between. Maryland is a model of poor planning, excess, and waste. Nothing here is done efficiently with growth in mind. Its a mess. And anytime you hear a Maryland politician talking about “quality of life”, its just the rich pandering to the ignorant media absorbed middle/low class so they can rape us for another dime and another heliport behind a mansion. (Note: I’m a democrat, and Maryland makes me ashamed of my party).
Below is an exchange between one of the 6-10 job recruitment emails I receive DAILY. (Don’t be fooled folks, the job market out there is really good).
However, this demonstrates what is inherently wrong with labor and the “job creators”* in our country.
(*Remember, the term “job creator” is total bullshit because the people who have the ability to create jobs really dont give a damn if they are creating jobs or not. They just want to see if they can get their overhead and hire people for as little wage as humanly possible. Essentially, these companies would hire neuro physicists for $5 an hour if they could get away with it). Below is the exchange.)

Everything listed is well within the scope of my experience. Currently, I am working on a contract that seems to have no end for HRSA.
I am making $xx/hour on a 1099 with absolutely no benefits including no sick leave.
If you can do better than this, I will consider.
——– Jolly’s response ———-
I can do $xx + $5/hr on 1099.
Please send me your updated resume.
——– My second response ———–
Considering I just re-signed a year lease living in North Bethesda, MD…. I don’t think this rate is reasonable enough for me to break my lease and move my life to Martinsburg, WV. The commute from my current residence is 50+ miles one way through some of the worst traffic the east coast has to offer.
Can we reconsider with this in mind?
A friend of mine said, “There are many job opportunities out there right now. The problem is that everyone wants help, but nobody wants to pay for it.” Can you show ME that you really want my help and make it worth my while to uproot my life for this? The way I see this, we are all responsible for our own health care at this point. I dont understand why companies have very little to pay for labor these days. It’s bad enough that we now cover our own health care, then companies don’t want to pay for any sick or vacation leave. How much more cheaper can we make labor for the “job creators”? I don’t understand why BEFORE the ACA(“obamacare”), companies covered health care AND leave. Now they want to cover NOTHING? I dont see how this is reasonable or even fair.
Merely $5 extra dollars an hours doesn’t seem really reasonable enough for this.
Apparently, when we want something we pay for it. When the “job creators” or the people who HAVE MONEY want something, we are supposed to give it to them for free.
This is why I do not rise for the national anthem.
UPDATE: this person didn’t even read the response and just sent me a form to sign for “exclusivity” so nobody else can PIMP me for this contract. Essentially, they just made the assumption that I accepted their offer. Once again, proof that nobody in America reads ANYTHING. I responded saying:
We are still negotiating! If you actually read my last post you will know that I did not accept your offer and was questioning the reasons why the consideration is so low. I will not sign any agreement until the terms are reasonable. Your suggested terms are not reasonable as mentioned in my last post.
On the news this morning (on the radio) I heard that there are more jobs available then workers in America. I can very easily explain to the “job creators” (which is a bullshit term that has no validity in real life) that the reason for this is what JohnnyD said years ago: “Everyone wants the help and nobody wants to pay for it”. If the “job creators” actually paid a sensible wage in correlation to the cost of living in the geographical area in which they are hiring, this wouldn’t be a problem. BUT when you pay McDonald’s wages for a job that requires 24/7 availability and a masters degree, this is what happens. Like the band Rush says, “You can’t have something for nothing…”
Also there seems to be a reoccurring theme here. I have been a contractor for the majority of my working life (20+ years). In this time, I have seen my employer names become more and more harder to pronounce. I have also found that the companies I’ve been working for are all based overseas. This means, when you call your HR office, you are using a country code to call internationally.
I JUST WANT TO WORK FOR AN AMERICAN COMPANY BASED IN AMERICA RUN BY PEOPLE WHO SPEAK MY LANGUAGE.
Everyday, I get emails from recruiters that have crazy foreign names. Some are hilarious. (My favorite was a few years ago when I got an email from a recruiter named “Bibbit Babu”). Since I no longer have the patience to answer their phone calls because I dont understand them when they call me (reference this posting), I have decided to list the funny names. So, if you want to work in america, these are the people you must beg and plead for a job in this stupid ignorant nation of greed and sell outs. To be honest, I think these people are driving our wages down. They work for nothing, so that means america is going to turn into the next New Delhi. I wonder how the clean white rich “job creators” will feel when their neighborhood turns into something that looks like a slum in India, because that’s where we are heading.
This has become so bad, that I may have to make a posting everyday with these. It definitely is a laugh trying to pronounce them. It is also funny when they call me and say, “Hello Shad Glaybeel…”:
Today’s job recruiter names:
1. Joshi Ganesh
2. Vinit Rathi
3. Krishna Chaitanya Vempati
4. Faiz Ali Raza
5. Wei Wang
1. Preethi Vadagule
2. Mohd Faiz
3. Rahul Dhawan
4. Prashant Patel
5. Bala Rudravarapu
6. Bala Peddinti
8. Simran Kaur
This is NOT an exaggeration. And I have received ZERO listings from a name that sounds English.
The good part is, I am a technical writer that speaks/writes English as a native language. These people will always need someone like me. The sad part is, when interviewing with these people, when you can actually UNDERSTAND them on the phone, they have no concept of geography. They think Pittsburgh is a 5 minute walk up the road from Philadelphia. Sure, they think its no problem for you to uproot your entire existence to work 500 miles away on a 3 month long contract with no benefits and a wage that makes the janitor laugh.
Folks, this stuff makes me hate america SO MUCH its disgusting.
