No.  The GOP's floor in NJ tends to be higher than most other Democratic states, especially for Senate races.  However, the ceiling is only slightly above the floor.

Can't link the article, but according to the Charlotte Observer, the GOP Assembly and State Senate are going in full tilt to fight the ban.  Tillis and Berger have hired N.O.M Chairman John Eastman....

Does Quicken Loans exist in OK? I know people who've gotten careers there without a college degree and in a field they've never studied.

I work for a Mortgage Company (not Quicken).  A Mortgage Company would be a terrible fit for Bushie

Well, never mind.  I was declined.  So, time for the next gig...

Bushie, I typically feel bad when you get declined, but this time I don't.  This is the best outcome possible for you.

King, I don't have to convince myself.  I'm a pretty smart cookie and I'm positive I can do this.  If I fail, I fail, but if I succeed that's all the better.

FFS what makes you think you can do another Customer Service job, which has worked out oh so well for you in the past, in something far more technical than you have ever experienced??  It isn't always a bad thing to try something else, but this is just a cluster****

Here is why I rarely listen to the forum.  Most of the forum thinks I can't do anything, or can't do anything significant.  Friends don't think their friends can't do anything.  That's where most of the forum utterly fail.  They never give me a chance and try to discourage me from EVERY friggin job I come across.  Shut up, will ya.

Bushie, you need to know your limitations, what you can do and what you can't do.  I wouldn't become a Carpenter or anything like that because well I suck at that type of stuff, and I'm not cut out for it.  No offense, but you aren't cut out for a Customer Service type of job.

My old man told me this evening not to ever go back to customer service!!

He obviously doesn't know what he's talking about. What a negative he is!


Part of me understands exactly why Bushie is doing this over and over again, he needs something.  I was hit by layoffs during the heart of the recession and it was near impossible for me to find a job for awhile, so I know how frustrating it can be.  I was out for awhile and ultimately took something that I didn't envision myself taking and wouldn't have taken at the time if I wasn't out of work for as long as I was.  I was pratically starting over.  Still in the financial field, but completely different sector, had to go through licensing exams, etc.  

While I was never even remotely close to Bushie's financial situation, I was struggling and took it because well I needed it.   I think that is what Bushie keeps doing, but the difference is knowing what you are getting yourself into.  I knew exactly what I was getting into, Bushie over and over again simply doesn't.  He gets something in his head and jumps in full tilt without taking a step back, realize his own skills, where he is strong, where he isn't (customer service).

He his obviously desperate, his current financial situation is a complete disaster, and needs something asap, but seems to be going about it completely the wrong way.

Well, guys, I need to go to bed. I've got a phone interview in 12 hours...

I'm not sure how to even respond to this....

Hooray for leaving the ridiculously stretched page behind!


Yeah, sorry about that whole thing. My brain just sort of stroked off and I couldn't stop typing. I'll happily accept whatever the hell an "infraction point" is.

---

As for the job -- I have posed a number of questions to Jeff and find it completely unnecessary to accept a position which is essentially customer service wherein he'll have to learn entirely new skills when he possesses the beginnings of CADD knowledge and enough other basic skills to land a position that won't require yet another "challenge."

If it's the type of organization that I suspect it is, they likely would hire him, because they look for bodies, not talent and capabilities. Having a pulse gets you hired ... not retained.

Hell, I couldn't even get into the whole new skills part, the whole customer service aspect of it made me want to throw my computer across the room.

I can vouch that it is a reputable company, the specific job need to find out more, but from what it sounds .....

Nah, BRTD, the reason that BlackBerry is still in business is that businesses and government use them.

Yup, it's been standard issue blackberrys for a while now.  Their security was always touted.  However, this maybe final death knell for bb because iphones are being issued to many now.

Android for personal.  I prefer bb to iphone for work.


I'm surprised so many business's still prefer to use bb's.  Iphone's and Android's can pretty much do anything a BB can do anyway.

Andriod.  Galaxy S4, have had it since it first came out (which was basically timed perfectly with my upgrade)

Jeff, you don't even need to PM JMann and Smash with info on this one. I know they will tell this is an awful job for you and you will fail HARD at it. It's clear as day from the little info you've already provided. Even if you aren't on the phone, this is a customer service job where you will have to answer difficult questions by the customer and your Tourette's will may it difficult for you.

Please get a job at WalMart, Target, or anywhere else for the holiday season. You will be unemployed on Christmas Day if you take a "HelpDesk" job.




I would say that is the reason J-Mann and myself haven't been PM'd this one.  Bushie knows exactly what we will say.  Bushie if you want actual imput send something over (I hope I'm wrong), but I have a feeling your head is planted in the sand on this one

I think we found what Our Dear Friend should pursue (I think it was eluded to earlier on this page): he must run for, and win, elected office. And unless Oklahoma has recall provisions, he wouldn't be terminated from his position within like two months.

Any attempt by him to run for office would result in Mondale leaking Update to the media.

That would actually make for one of the weirdest political scandals of all time.


Would it be a plus in Oklahoma??  Bushie being  seen as "common folk" down there??

Have a laptop, usually just close the lid and it goes into sleep mode, once a week or so I will shut it down completely.

Bushie, Good luck.  Been a bit busy the couple days so only got a chance to look over things briefly.  Company seems legit, and the job seems like it has potential, I'm not sure if it will provide the training you seem to need, but its certainly worth a shot if you get the call.
48  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Has Pat Roberts Already Lost? on: October 02, 2014, 12:09:07 pm
If a Democrat was down by this much, people would be insisting that it was already lost. For instance, Braley and Grimes are actually winning in today's polls, but people insist they've lost already.

Because they're Democrats in Purple and (atlas) blue states, and this is a Republican in Kansas where you have to account for a potential mega coming home effect. I do think Roberts still loses though.


You can account for that to a point, and would be a valid argument in other circumstances.  However, the Kansas Republican Party is having a brutal year all around, this isn't just isolated to Roberts.
