MIND BOGGLING INCOMPETENCE
In a moment of generosity, I recently took the time to put a border and name on multiple images for a friend of mine who runs a big place. Clearly, her Backpage ads were a complete fucking mess and she needed help. Without names on the photos, there was no convenient way for the customers to convey to the phone girls which girl interested them. Having completed the work, I zipped them up and sent them off…all ready to go.
Sounds simple enough, right? So today I check out one of their ads. Amazing! There are three names in the headline - and ten images on the sidebar. Only two of those ten images are labeled with the girl's name. And that girl is not one of the three the headline advertises! Unlabeled girl #2 is in fact not listed in the ad's header either…and only girl #3 matches up with the title though again…she is displayed completely unlabeled. Talk about a ball of confusion. Talk about mind-boggling incompetence! What are ya gonna do? Tell me why I took the time on my buddy's behalf in the first place! But really…who cares about all that? In the great scheme of things, could anything be less significant?
So I move on to a different subject: The 911 Commission Report and a book I've almost finished reading titled "The Commission - The Uncensored History of the 911 Investigation." Now this matters more than some incall fucking up their ads I'm sure we could all agree.
Anybody with half a brain is well aware that the US government totally fumbled the Al-qaeda attacks. And in my opinion, anybody who voted for George Bush has him or herself to blame. I won't bore you with details as this isn't the time or place for all that. But I can tell you that the sniping and in-fighting that took place among Bush's staff, the Commissoners and the Commissioners' staff was more reminiscent of a bunch of whores than it was of elected and appointed officials - all of whom are the intellectual elite of this country.
In fact, all but one individual passed the buck and pointed toward somebody else to assess blame. And the one guy who actually apologized to the 911 widows and widowers was the guy who knew it was gonna happen - and screamed it to the President and his token Security Adviser.
Yup! RICHARD CLARKE pleaded with CONDOLEEZA RICE to pay attention to his admonitions about the Al-qaeda threat for months leading up to 911! At his wits end, Clarke delivered the final salvo 7 days before the attacks beseeching her that if she didn't pay attention soon she'd be looking at dead bodies on American soil. Talk about mind-boggling incompetence! Bush and Condi are surely the poster people!
There are so many interesting tidbits in this book…like the fact that the PDB's (presidential daily briefs) delivered to the President by the CIA had to be boiled down to just a few paragraphs for Bush while those same briefs were pages and pages long for Clinton. Infer what you will…but one person close to the President was quoted..."Bush wasn't much of a reader!" Gee! Who woulda thunk? And America elected that guy! Oh, yeah! I forgot. The republican party - along with his brother - stole the election by systematically disenfranchising Florida voters who would have cast their ballots for Gore. My bad.
Going back to Backpage ads..I'll say one thing: When I posted them, they went up on time…with snappy headlines and text…an eye-catching display ad in the middle…and all the images on the sidebar labeled. I was not a mind-boggling incompetent at my job! And a lot of good it did me. Humbug!
And now for a final and contextual message in this rant: Law enforcement needs to concentrate on what matters: terrorist threats and violent criminals. And they need to devote as many men and man hours to the job as possible - and of course, make sure the people doing the job aren't mind-boggling incompetents. Where they shouldn't waste those resources? I'll bet you know how I feel about that! Enough said. I'm out!
