Final Saved Version of World TV's Acid Jazz Channel (No Longer Works)

This channel hasn't worked in two months. I've replaced it with ViLoud. I'm saving the remnants here. Maybe it will turn back on one day. I doubt it.

Over 4000  1000 new vids (explanation) in random play. More Update: Channel is working properly when you see a picture. Takes one minute to load. Channel not working as well when you don't see a picture.Update: If the embed above isn't working, then try here. This is the New Acid Jazz Channel. I'm not sure about the future of the company behind the old Acid Channel, which you can find here. You can also catch a widescreen version here.

Current Channel Playing: I have switched to the old Acid Jazz Channel which plays just the last 1000 vids I've added. (Can also be found here, here,  here and at WorldTV). You can find the oldies at "More Acid Jazz",with over 3500 videos in random play here, and at WorldTV.  You can find both channels at this page

Statement to EEOC about Zachary Reider and Fieldworks

I pointed out today that I was never insubordinate because I was actually never given any orders by Zachary Reider to disobey. But let's make this public. This is what I sent to the EEOC today:

I did actually have one more question about that statement: when exactly was I insubordinate? I never disobeyed any orders from Zach. And this is also important: I was never given any orders by Zach. I mentioned two things in the morning meeting of the day I was fired: One, that I canvassed someone from the county's voter registration office and she informed me that they were accepting voter registration cards without the social security number but not registrations with a number that we used to use in those situations. I also mentioned that we had to abide by the no quota rule for voter registrations, an aftermath of the ACORN scandals of some years back. I said that in order to protect Fieldworks and what I thought (my opinion) was a very immature, insecure and dim witted canvass director in Zachary Reider (A guy who punishes workers for daring to attend funerals. Yeah I hear that guy is suing too.) , who, from the emails he sent to me, indicated that he would probably ignore that law. But I should point out that in those emails, where he was provided with the statute, he said he would abide by it and understood it. Here is the statute yet again.

§ 1713. Solicitation of registration.
(a) Prohibition.--A person may not give, solicit or accept payment or financial incentive to obtain a voter registration if the payment or incentive is based upon the number of registrations or applications obtained.
(b) Penalty.--A person who violates subsection (a) commits a misdemeanor of the third degree and shall, upon conviction, be sentenced to pay a fine of not less than $500 nor more than $2,500 or to imprisonment for not less than one month nor more than one year, or both

Fieldworks lied, of course, and fired Maria and Heather (I'll keep their last names out if it.) for not meeting the quota. They also filed a complaint with the EEOC  and legitimately so. And Ruthann Alexander in Philly (she's a friend of mine) has stated this on the record for a newspaper that she was fired for not making quota. That's just three that I know of. Probably two dozen more. Really, both Zachary Reider and Laura Barkley, if she fired someone over quotas, should be in jail cells. I'm going to do everything in my power to make that happen. Even if I have to file a private criminal complaint. Or to put this in the context of the law Zachary Reider, and certainly the person who fired Ruthann Alexander, were clearly given incentives to fire people based upon the number of registrations workers' obtained.

But bottom line: I was never given any orders to disobey. And if I was so disobedient why let me work all day and get 15 registrations? Just awful dopey lies. I hope you don't mean that Zach wanted to break the law and enforce quotas and he minded me pointing out the law in front of the workforce. I hope you don't mean that. I believe I'm protected by the state's whistle blowing statute and the position of the Obama administration's position on speech in the workplace. Sure the Trump administration NLRB rules will be worse, such as summary execution for the insubordinate employee or something, but that wasn't in effect during the summer of 2016.

So, hey, I'll bite: what orders did I disobey? Anything in writing to prove that?

I also decided to publish this on my blog. You're welcome to comment. You won't be censored. But there will be a response.
