Quite possibily the nastiest phone call I’ve received in some time.
“This is the return call you requested regarding the back brace . . .” at which point I hung up and wondered if the telephone solicitors I hang up on without ceremony have found a way of making money from my phone bill when they are unable to speak with me on unsolicited blind calls.
Nast name thought.
Peru decrees warrantless geolocation tracking of cellphones goes along with the phone rant this morning; and just a slight digression is me giving a village councilor a bit of cheek over deliberately choosing an out of county contractor to roof the house so I wouldn’t have to pay the one percent on the dollar local tax. He wasn’t happy.
The Peru thing is like the NSA, yes? Yes, of course. And at least they were honest enough to make a law for everyone to see rather than do it, apologize for it, and find a “quiet” way to achieve the same thing. Like the US.
How greedy is government – ask Chicago. They are now taxing on-line entertainment nine percent for their movies and stuff.
I didn’t pay attention to the details (they haven’t affected me yet) to see if Google games and things like that are affected. Just think of it: Poker – taxed nine percent per hand . God in heaven, Chicago found a gold mine.
Even the biggies are hit – Amazon Prime, Netflex, etc..
How much more can the public support of this big government.
