We’ve had the same services with this progressive, evil company for 2 years. Bill was $157 in August, and $215 for December, apparently due to “expiring promotions”. I have fought to keep them in our house due to better internet speeds, but I’ve been pushed over the edge. Canceled them on Friday, with U-Verse being installed on Wednesday.
I rather view it as jumping from the fire, back into the frying pan. The entire business model stinks to high heaven. There simply isn’t $215 in value for what we pay. We pay for 400+ channels, yet watch about 20 max. I hope that internet/TV will soon all be data and we’ll pay for what we use.
Can't say it enough. Dump them and watch Internet, Netflix, Hulu or Amazon. It may be a change to get used to but what could you do with an extra $120 per month after paying for Internet.

I imagine you’re a lot of fun at parties too.

I’m glad the vital organs weren’t harmed.

MY floor, yes!

I think we can all agree the $$ was well-spent.

I’m going to step out on a thin limb and guess that this guy’d drug-of-choice is Meth. Given that Meth addicts lose their desire for food, this is clearly NOT her problem however.

I lived in the city of Chicago for 18 years, and saw cops do this all the time. One of the other tricks: the station at Clark and Chicago Sts didn’t have much in the way of parking, so cops would park anywhere they damn well pleased, including on Clark St during morning rush despite the fact it was prohibited from 7-9 am. All they had to do was put an empty M&Ms bag on the dashboard, signaling to Meter-Maids (get it?) that they shouldn’t get tickets.
This was on local news, and one cop interviewed said “it’s a perk”. Sorry officer, a perk is something on your contract. THIS is corruption.
Folks, when people who make the laws (legislators) and people who enforce the laws (Police, et al), don’t have to obey these laws, civil society is doomed.

To paraphrase Reagan Labor Secretary Ray Donovan, to which office does PhiPsi go to, to get their reputation back? Is the president of the fraternity going to put THAT on his resume? I hope RS is sued and shut down.

I really like these guys. This was beautiful indeed. Yeah, I wish the dude had removed his hat, but I’m seeing the beauty of the forest, through the trees here.

There are things one cannot un-see, such as beheading videos, etc. I have to put this in that category. I simply cannot bring myself to watch.

Steve Harrigan is about 6’4″ as I recall. He’s up to the task!

That top pic is the new cast for “Dumb and Dumber” sequel? Type-casting

I spent a summer in Memphis in 2010. Whatta toilet. This event doesn’t surprise me in the least.

Obama actually lurched uncontrollably onto a truism after Kanye West’s incredible rudeness to Taylor Swift: “He’s a jack-wagon”, although he didn’t say wagon. Whaddya know? There IS one thing I can agree on with this loser of a president?!

Perhaps “bandwagon” was a poor choice of words. He gets something right on national security and the ******-threat once in a while. That’s all I was sayin’. He’s definitely establishment, and is not fit to shine Rand Paul’s shoes. Clearer?

OK, I’m officially off the Peter King bandwagon. He’s rather like Lindsay Grahamnesty. Like a stopped clock, they might be right twice per day, but the rest of the time they’re hopelessly wrong.
i was not aware of peter king bandwagon....Can you please explain what motivates this 'bandwagon' and what are the main issues they like?
Ah, but they are on a 24 hour clock and may be right only once per day if at all.

The only things to do for addicts is 1) get out of their way and 2) pray for them. Recovery starts when we experience the consequences for our addictions. I say this from experience. That’s tough love for ya, but it’s the only thing that works. We must hit absolute bottom to accept help.
