Darn You Rogers and your lying ways.

August 23, 2009

About four and a half weeks ago I ordered an iPhone from Rogers.  The guy I ordered from assured me that it would be two weeks before I had it, at the most four.  I called them a week and a half ago and was told that the customer service guy who assured me it wouldn’t be that long before I got mine, apparently there were rumors of a shipment coming soon, didn’t really know… that it will actually be closer to six weeks.  I was waiting until this weekend to see if it would actually show up but it still has not.  I’m very annoyed for multiple reasons.  First, I’m annoyed that I have to stay with rogers because they extended my contract a year ago without telling my Dad they were doing that, and secondly, that they blatantly lied to me about how long it would take to get a new iPhone.  Only once I’d given them the money did they tell me it would take this long.  I’m now stuck with this lying company for three years.  Great.

How could this happen?

March 5, 2009

I’m looking for more information on this, but apparently a couple of Jewish students were attacked threatened and intimidated at a lecture at U of T.  The reason?  They asked the typical question that anyone listening to discussions about Israel and Palestine should ask regarding the anti-semetic, anti-israeli nature of the Hamas charter. In typical fashion, the Hamas apologist ducked the question, and when students demanded a straight answer they were bullied and kicked out.

This week is apparently Israeli Apartheid Week, which is becoming not only a vehicle for anti-semitism but also a catalyst for goon tactics similar to what Christopher Hitchens dealt with in Syria.  I’m appalled that this could happen first in a city as multicultural as Toronto, and second in Canada.  We cannot allow this sort of behaviour to go unacknowledged.

Businessmen from another planet.

February 2, 2009

How does it not occur to some of these people that spending ten million dollars on a sporting event might tick off the taxpayers who just supported a billion dollar bailout of your bank.

Despite a near collapse that required $45 billion in federal taxpayer bailout funds, Bank of America sponsored a five day carnival-like affair just outside the Super Bowl stadium this past week as President Obama decried wasteful spending on Wall St.

(…)

The bank refused to tell ABC News how much it is spending as an NFL corporate sponsor, but insiders have put the figure at close to $10 million.

Disgusting.
