Nobody's Opinion

Nobody’s Perfect: Mozilla VS GM

 Nobody’s Perfect:

This week, we have two companies that are trying very hard to cover up past mistakes. Let’s see if we can pick the lesser of the two evilsFirefox

FIRST UP: Mozilla. Which runs a search engine called Firefox. It seems, the company’s owners found out too late, that it’s appointed CEO, Brendan Eich, had committed an unspeakable crime:

He helped set up an Al-Qaeda training camp in California—no wait. That was a California Senator.

No, Brenda did something evidently much worse…he donated money to outlaw same-sex marriage, which in California is a crime far exceeding setting up Al-Qaeda training camps.

Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich is stepping down as CEO following protests over his support of a gay marriage ban in California. At issue was Eich’s $1,000 donation in 2008 to the campaign to pass California’s Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that outlawed same-sex marriages.

HIS boss, who happens to be a woman, said this when she found out:

We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better,” Baker wrote.

She said that Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech and that “figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”

Yes, MS Baker just can’t seem to get the concept of free speech, which is why I’m immensely proud of the fact that I never downloaded Firefox, even though Kim Komando (I really like her) suggested it. I went with my gut: Google and Microsoft do enough damage to a computer, why add a third?

SECOND UP: GM. This now great Chinese company was in the hot seat this week, for cutting corners, and not replacing a small ignition switch that cost 57cents.GM

A safety watchdog group has released a study that shows General Motors (GM) airbag failures resulted in the death of some 300 people, eight times the number that GM stated.

GM said there had been 12 deaths in 34 cars; the study shows 303 in 1.6 million vehicles from the vehicles GM recalled last month. GM did not recall the cars until February, despite learning of problems with the ignition switch in 2001 and issuing related service bulletins to dealers with suggested remedies in 2005.

So what did GM do? They immediately promoted the smartest and most innocent looking woman they could find in their stack of employees and made her CEO to take the heat: Mary Barra. And Mary went before Congress to explain:

Barra, who has been CEO for less than three months, fielded questions from the House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee for two hours, avoiding any obvious gaffes and keeping her cool but also largely ducking specific answers, saying an internal investigation is underway into why it took GM so long to address ignition-switch problems first detected in 2001 this year.

She was battered for speaking “gobbledygook,” thumped for not firing an engineer who apparently concealed a change to the potentially deadly switches, and blasted because GM made an economic decision to keep the flawed component in production while knowing it didn’t meet GM standards.

So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?car smashed

Mozilla…basically hurt, not only one guy, who didn’t deserve to be ostracized for his own opinions about sex, but their bottom line. Many conservatives are going to stop using Firefox, and they will lose customers, and Mozilla might end up on the not very popular proverbial floor looking for CNN.

GM on the other hand, has killed 300 people with their negligence, and no one has been fired.(Proof that it’s been nationalized)

BUT…having said that…they are small peanuts compared to how many people will die due to the new Obamacare “less is more” healthcare law.

But, I know, I’m always doing this at the end of my Nobody’s Perfect opinions. So…

I pick GM.

If a bunch of gay people running Mozilla want to have only gay liberals working for their company, hey, doesn’t bother me. It’s a free country, and it’s a good thing now we know we don’t have to use your product.

But, GM…was bailed out by the American people…and murder is murder, no matter if it comes from a greedy bottom line, or a population-culling healthcare law.

So, to make ourselves forget both these companies…enjoy the SNL skit on what all scumbags do, whether they are big multinational companies or corrupt government officials…. when they are caught being…scumbags. They lie.

I could not for the life of me find it on Youtube, but you can see the SNL video HERE. It’s worth the watch!

Nobody Knows: Boeing 777, GM CEO, Clooney, Beyonce, NSA— Puppies!

Nobody Knows

It’s the Wednesday addition of Nobody Knows anything…good luck trying to find out!Malaysia plane

Nobody Knows: It’s been almost two weeks, and nobody knows where the Boeing 777 went, but what we DO know, is that the cable stations have MILKED this story for all it’s worth. Did the pilot kill the passengers by going up to 45,000 feet? (And do oxygen masks stop working at that altitude?)  Did he just kill the oxygen? Did he program the plane to turn left? Was it an electrical short? Was there another person on that plane that helped hide Obama’s birth certificate in Hawaii? Was this a radical Muslim working with Obama on a secret mission to hide out in an undisclosed bunker, until the day it would be released only to drop a nuke on Washington D.C. while Obama (and his buddies) were out-of-town? Hey…that’s at least as feasible as the Indian Triangle supernatural theory. Or aliens stealing it to study. And since two Iranians got on board illegally, will Israel be the target? Nobody Knows. Nobody knows what happened to Jimmy Hoffa, but then again, Nobody Cares.

Nobody Knows just when they are going to stop talking about it, but if you want to read ALL the theories, it’s all here.

Nobody Knows: Gee. When did GM get a woman CEO?  (just a few months ago) Was this done in order to ‘soften’ the blow that for 11 years GM knew about a hazard that killed people in their cars, but it was all about keeping your eye on that bailout money? You had more important things to do GM? Was that part made in China?  Anyway, the woman is now being hailed as great, (just watch this fantastic propaganda video below) because she came out and admitted it.  Mary looks like everybody’s sister…you wouldn’t want to hurt dear Mary by suing GM now would you? Evidently Mary just found out about this..so I suggest Obama make her his new Auto Czar. Being good at denying knowledge of ANYTHING, is the progressive metal of honor. And speaking of Metals of honor–

Nobody Knows why Obama gave veterans Metals at the White House today. Everybody knows he hates the military. I think I would have suggested they send it to me in the mail. I don’t care how much I deserved that metal, to receive it from Obama would have been…more than a letdown. I would have HAD to say something like “I don’t LIKE what you are doing to our veterans Obama, and …just hand it to me. I want my fellow soldier to do the honors.” And then, I would have been escorted out of the room, and you would have never seen me again.

I don’t think I could have done it. But that’s me.

Nobody Knows—that I watched the movie, THE AMERICAN staring George Clooney last night, and unless you like an hour of sex scenes, with what is SURE to be a photoshoped Clooney, skip this one. On a scale of one to ten, I’d give it a .0005. There was only one scene that was worth watching, the evil sinister woman assassin gets a bullet to the head,–very rewarding, looked real. She deserved it. George had ONE expression throughout the whole movie, no doubt, from eating too many goats in  Somalia.  The American

Nobody Knows if Russia is going to invade all its old territories, since it has announced that it could make nuclear toast out of America. And Nobody Knows, if those elite rich snobs in the European Union still think the United States is going to come to their rescue. Would they give up their countries for Putin’s assurances that they would be allowed to keep their own fortunes?

EVERYBODY knows that answer.

Nobody Knows–It’s now being revealed that the NSA has recorded every single phone conversation ever held in probably every country. So, Nobody Knows why they haven’t used that to find out where that plane went….probably because they were listening to Mitt Romney’s phone conversations.

He has a really big family. So does Sarah Palin. I, on the other hand, am VERY boring. Absolutely. I swear on Justin Bieber’s left foot.

Nobody Knows—how hard it was to date Mick Jagger. (His girlfriend committed suicide) and Nobody Knows how Justin Beiber really hurt his foot. And Nobody Knows how many girls are going to complain to their boyfriends that they want to make love in the back of a limo because Beyoncé does it. And Nobody Knows if those girls will have to PAY for that limo. (See Beyoncé’s last video because Bill O’Reilly can’t stop talking about it.) Beyonce in limo

Nobody wonders if this is going to boost limousine company profits? Anyone with a limo service out there?

Nobody Knows what we found out that Obama did this week:

“In a move that went little noticed in 2009, the White House quietly amended portions of the Freedom of Information Act, making it more difficult for Americans to request public documents for review.”

Yes…the powerful don’t want you to know.

So, you won’t. Hey, we STILL don’t know who killed JFK, so we might as well get used to being ignorant.

And finally, Nobody Knows, I have no idea how to fly a plane, and Nobody Knows, that I thought this video was cute.

Next week, I’ll be sure to tell you more stuff…I don’t know.

Enjoy!

Nobody’s Perfect: Toyota Prius VS Chevy Volt

Nobody’s Perfect: 

It’s not rocket science: When Obama and his green buddies decided to throw “stimulus” into GM to make electric cars, anybody who had any sense would have said—-Uh…Thomas Edison tried to make a battery driven car: Been there, done that. You remember Thomas Edison don’t you? The progressives want you to forget him because he was the quintessential entrepreneur…He only lit up the world as we know it, and because he invented the motion picture, we get to see Obama and Michelle this week on the View!

Lucky us!

If Thomas Edison thought it wasn’t worth the effort, what makes you think Obama could do it? After all, in my 50-year old house, I cannot turn on my computer if my printer is on. And god forbid someone decide to vacuum the rug on Christmas Eve…all the outside Christmas lights blow out.

A Chevy Volt plugged into my garage would blow out my whole neighborhood. I’d have to buy a new house to just plug the Volt into….and it’s been known to blow up a few houses.

Hey…didn’t that brilliant mind of Obama’s job Czar Jeffery Immelt–didn’t he realize we’d have to rewire millions of homes to use these worthless electric cars? NO…all he saw was big electric bills coming his way. That’s what’s your suppose to do when you’re CEO of General Electric. Build everything in China, and get our government to fund electric cars.

Obama insisted on making those electric cars..so he doled out the money….

 Washington agreed to provide $25Bn in cheap loans to the companies who make electric cars. So far, $8.4Bn has been committed. The rest of the money will be doled out before 2019. The money is being lent by the Federal Financing Bank (FFB). Because the loans are guaranteed by DOE, there is no risk of repayment to FFB. As a result, the loans are excluded from the calculation of the debt limit. The 25 ‘large’ is all “off balance sheet”. A very neat trick indeed!

People aren’t stupid—So, it came as no surprise this week when two companies who had been trying to force electric cars onto the market have decided to take their losses and call it quits. Guess what? Nobody is buying them. What are Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford and Tom Hanks going to do when they want to trade in their old Prius’?

Yes, after all the taxpayer’s good money…GM is dumping the Chevy Volt. Buy one now, and get a big discount…

GM’s discounts on the Volt are more than four times the industry’s per-vehicle average, according to TrueCar estimates. Edmunds.com and J.D. Power and Associates say they’re about three times the average. Discounts include low-interest financing, cash discounts to buyers, sales bonuses to dealers, and subsidized leases.

And Toyota is right behind. They are getting rid of their electric cars:

 “The current capabilities of electric vehicles do not meet society’s needs, whether it may be the distance the cars can run, or the costs, or how it takes a long time to charge,” said, Uchiyamada, who spearheaded Toyota’s development of the Prius hybrid in the 1990s.

How do you like that? It took those two companies THIS long to figure that nobody was going to buy a car that had to be charged every 50 miles, and plugged in?

What? The Japanese are just as stupid as GM?

I don’t know which company is more lame. Toyota didn’t need an electric car, and it doesn’t make me feel any better that these great minds running the world are such idiots.

Nevertheless…don’t think they’ve given up. Remember…they passed Obamacare, which now means that our government can force us to buy anything, according to the Supreme Court.

I expect that IF Obama is kept in office, we will see….

The OBAMACAR. Probably a variation of this Nissan.

Nissan aims to offer its electric cars globally by 2012, in its long-term plan.

Nobody  plans to put my mandated electric car on top of my house at Christmas time, with a Big Santa Claus sitting in the seat, decorated and lit up with my finest Christmas bulbs…

And then…I plan to vacuum.
