Best Buy Bye, Jessica says, Global Fraud, Thank God for Beer.

Why Best Buy is Going out of Business…Gradually

To discover the real reasons behind the company’s decline, just take this simple test. Walk into one of the company’s retail locations or shop online.  And try, really try, not to lose your temper.

Bingo! This guy gets it. At this point I’ve stopped going to Best Buy but for once in a blue moon, but back when I still shopped there I used to find myself rehearsing in my mind as I walked from the parking lot to their front door my responses to the inevitable barrage of pushy sales pitches and attempts to highjack my attention. The worst was at the cashiers register; get a Best Buy credit card, get the extended warranty on this printer cable, blah blah blah .    Hate it.

Inevitably this is their future.

Here’s to Filene’s Basement

Donie worked there for over ten years. Once, when she was in Credit Accounts, she called the number of a man with a delinquent account. The woman that answered the phone said, in response to Donie’s polite request to speak to the man, “You kan’t talk to him anymore, didn’t ya watch the TV last night? The police shot em.” And so they had.

Quest for Britain’s Holy Ale

The Perfect Pint. The aroma, the color, the head it forms when poured just right—it’s not just the smoky-sweet taste that makes Harveys Best Bitter some beer lovers’ ultimate drink

I took my first sip of ale at 22, a few weeks after graduating from college and deciding to sell my car and buy a one-way ticket to post-punk London. For a Midwesterner nursed on Anheuser-Busch, that maiden pint of Harveys Sussex Best Bitter was a revelation. Fresh-hopped and smoky sweet, the flavors splashed across my tongue in waves: first the gritty taste of grain, then a blast of clearing hops. Someone had put a whole lot of love into this beer, I thought. From that moment on, I was determined to love it right back.

I favor British Ales myself, unfortunately the nearest place (Biritish Beer Company) has the worst food, and they don’t have Hedi.

New laws toughen rules on abortions, immigrants, voters

A California law will add gays and lesbians and people with disabilities to the list of social and ethnic groups whose contributions must be taught in history lessons in public schools. The law also bans teaching materials that reflect poorly on gays or particular religions.

Opponents have filed five potential initiatives to repeal the requirement outright or let parents remove their children while gays’ contributions are being taught.

I have to ask, “Will this law be repealed, or will the contributions of Gays be taught to schoolkids  in the end?”

Progress: Canadian Senate Listens to Global Warming Skeptics

McKitrick explained how his research showed that much of the warming seen in the IPCC surface temperature record is almost certainly a result of urbanization, agriculture, and other land use changes, not greenhouse gases (GHG). He also found that the 50-year record of temperatures measured by balloons does not show the warming trend forecast by climate models.

On January 1st, the EU started collecting a Carbon Cap and Trade Tax on all aircraft entering and landing in EU airspace.
