Posted on 01/18/2009 6:14:48 AM PST by PJ-Comix
Have you remembered to pay heed to Barack Obama worship services at his inauguration this Tuesday? If you are a Verizon customer you just might be getting an urgent reminder of this sacred duty in the form of a robocall as related by Brian Maloney of the Radio Equalizer:
Yesterday, I was all set to write a smug, self-congratulatory post regarding my tremendous wisdom in finally dumping Comcast a few weeks ago for the complete Verizon Fios package, including cable. With Comcrap now establishing an all-Obama channel, isnt it finally time to make the switch?
Sadly, however, Verizon did something yesterday that I think is far worse: it left a rambling, pre-recorded message on my home answering machine imploring me to watch his historic inaugural, using a tone that assumed we are all liberal Democrats and Obamists.

I got an email from dish network about it too. I have better things to do like clip my toenails.
I am referring to Charles Henrickson who is a pastor in Missouri as well as DUmmie FUnnies co-conspirator. Perhaps a parody song in addition to an idol worship sermon would be in order. For heretical skeptics, “Oh Come Let Us Ignore” him would be an interesting parody song theme. Just thinking out loud here.
The fall is in progress.
Note to self. Tomorrow is Monday. Today is Sunday. Must remember that.
"Can you hear me now?"
Your humble correspondent thinks tomorrow might be a good time for his DUmmie FUnnies co-conspirator and pastor to deliver a sermon on the dangers of idol worship.
I amazes me that 56 million people did not vote for “blank man” but they are quick to snub their existence.
Obamms doesn’t swear does he?
Yep. “Hey! Everybody! He’s going to do something! Watch, listen, and be amazed!”
I get it. I got it a long time ago. He’s Oz. OK. I understand.
Now show me who it is that is behind the curtain.
We here at FR feel that if you can't make your point without the DU-type potty talk, then don't post on that thread. Just a FRiendly message :)
At least now we can get some of those things done that we have been putting off, cleaning my Guns works for me.
I’m furious about this. I’ve gotten three messages about watching the inauguration on my tv set also, one when I pressed the guide button.
I’m nauseated by it all. We got a huge color pullout of Obama’s face and quote in our small local community paper this am.
I will NOT be assimilated.
Keep the kids home from propaganda school.....watch movies!
Given all the hype I expect Obama will be wearing a white robe and riding a donkey down Pennsylvania Ave. while his supporters wave palm branches, throw their coats on the street in front of him and shout hosannas to the new messiah.
Obamms doesnt swear does he?
I received the same e-mail from Dish Network too. I am still considering canceling their service. We were also about to turn off our Sprint service to chance over to Verizon. We are still pissed about Sprint stacking roaming charges on deployed military personnel and was waiting for my contract to expire. These asshats dont understand their fawning over the American Idol president will drive many of us to their competitors or in the spirit of economizing to pay our coming tax burden we will no longer be able to afford their over priced services.
The jackass will be riding a horse.
I sent a one word reply: "gag"
If verizon sends me a Robo-Call (or text messge) on this then I am switching my cell service to AT&T/Cingular.
I will not have my money (paid bills) to be used to promote a partisan cause (would they have done this if McCain had won), or at the Bush Innaguration if they’d had the network back then (technology wise to do this)?
My sisters are keeping their children home from school so they won’t be forced to watch the coronation.
Does DISH still have their Obama channel yet???
