Yesterday was a bad taco day. I went to this place called ‘One Taco’ that just had the worst service. I ordered two tacos and it took about 45 minutes to make. They were cold, and they weren’t even the correct tacos. Sigh.
I would have tried to get my order corrected, but I didn’t want to wait another 45 minutes…for a TO GO order. I could have made my own tacos, including making my own tortillas from scratch, in much less time than 45 minutes.
So I did that thing I don’t like to do, that other people do too often…I complained on twitter:
Strongly don't recommend going to @onetaco . Service is just way too slow. Been waiting 20 minutes for two tacos. Not good.
Nothing really got resolved though. The folks at the place were nice but it seemed like a poor managed business. There were long lines the whole time I was there, not because of demand, but because the line wasn’t moving. It took them over 5 minutes to place an order with each person. There wasn’t any seating cause there were a lot of people just sitting around waiting for their order.
Anyway, I don’t mean to sound so harsh, but a bad taco experience in Texas is unforgivable. So many folks have figured out how to build a successful taco business in Central/South Texas. I drove by the One Taco today, and saw much of the same thing….a long line, people sitting around waiting for their order, and looking really annoyed. No thanks One Taco, no thanks.
I saw this nice gentlemen interviewed on NBC News and he said a bunch of insane stuff. He was also wearing a George W. Bush pin. We all say crazy stuff. That happens, we’re all a little crazy, right? 🙂 I just wanted to list some things out though, based on shit he said:
1. You can “rip up” emails, they’re digital.
2. George W. Bush’s administration deleted over 60x the amount of emails, and destroyed (well..tried) memos sent to foreign leaders.
3. People in the Bush Admin actually went to jail over fraud, Hillary not so much (at least…yet).
4. There’s actual evidence of war criminality over the ramp up to the Iraq War, but there hasn’t been any congressional oversight about it. According to the latest numbers, which aren’t fully reported yet, we’ve lost over 3,800 brave men and women from our military. 100s of thousands of innocent life has been lost as well.
5. 4 brave individuals lost their lives in the Benghazi attack. Four is less than hundreds of thousands. Additionally the Iraq War had zero investigational hearings from Congress and Benghazi had 8 or 9, depending on your definition of a investigation.
6. Under the Bush Administration, there were over 13 attacks on state department offices/buildings, that lead to 60 deaths.
7. Every human life is precious. The people of the United States deserve to know the truth about how we end up in foreign conflicts, and why people have sacrificed their lives, but we have a tendency of over politicizing everything. The result is, people’s lives are sacrificed in vain. The true victims are the families of those who lost loved ones, while politicians shout over each other.
FYI I love this VOX video on Benghazi:
IN CONCLUSION…. 😛 Emotions lie to us. If you like Trump, that’s fine! If you like Hillary, that’s also fine! Just remember that numbers don’t lie. Facts are facts. What if I told you, if we used our ‘feelings’ a little less, and stuck with the facts….we would make better choices, especially in foreign policy. Maybe less of our fellow country men and women would die in vain.
Also take responsibility for your life choices. If you voted for Bush twice, I’d rather you not bitch about Benghazi. You should take a step back and reflect on HOW you make your choices. Being a hypocrite won’t do you any favors.
The song ‘Present Tense’ from Radiohead is one of my favorite songs on their latest album, but the song its actually a couple years old. Here is a version of Present Tense from 2009 at the Latitude Festival. Cool stuff!
