Securus Saved Our Thanksgiving With Video Visitation

Securus Technologies really brought my family together this Thanksgiving. My brother was thrown into federal prison because of marijuana charges a couple of years ago. And it’s totally crazy because marijuana is now becoming legal in many states across the country. We are hoping to get his conviction vacated in light of all of this.

 

That’s all beside the point. The point is that my children miss my brother and so do I. It is always hard around the holidays because we know that he is locked behind bars. He is housed all the way across the state and it makes it very difficult for us to visit him. That’s when Securus saved the day for us.

 

This benevolent company runs this incredibly genius technology. All I do is log into their website, request a video visitation time, and then log back in when it’s time. My brother pops up on the other side with his face filling the screen.

 

We video chatting with him on a tablet this year. It’s about as close is he will get to a family gathering for quite some time, and I am grateful for this technology.

 

I just want to start to spread the word. Securus has been nothing but good to us. They are always interested in whether we are happy with our services or not. And if there are any technical issues, calling into their customer service center is lightning quick. I’ve read bad reviews of other prison telecommunications companies. I’m hoping Securus becomes the country’s leading provider very soon.

Glenn Beck: Really–Where Are Your Manners?

Many of us remember growing up in a family where manners were important. In an age, where individuals, such as our new U.S. President, Donald Trump, wishes to Make America Great Again–it seems relevant to ask individuals who make flip remarks, like Glenn Beck: Where are Your Manners? Especially when it comes to exceptional human-beings such as George Soros.

It seems reasonable to think: Why cannot persons make a living talking about informational material–material that does not take shots at another person’s reputation: Individuals, again, like George Soros.

Glenn Beck, may wish to consider the question: Where Are Your Manners Mr. Beck? One reporter, rightfully, concluded, that Mr. Beck’s campaign against George Soros lacks merit. He depicts Mr. Soros as an evil-doer of some sort. Hitler was very anti-Jewish, as we all know. In controlling the Jewish people, initially, he made outrageous claims about some very prosperous Jewish merchants. It was their activities that would be the undoing of the world population, if those activities were not addressed. What made this offering of slanderous material so pitiful, is that many of the areas where Hitler and the Nazis, suggested, the Jewish people posed the biggest threat, were areas where the Jewish population was very scarce. As everyone knows, Hitler, in and of himself became the threat. However, Hitler’s course of action, from the beginning, was to go about and con world leaders. He promised to agree upon the terms of treaties, and then completely disavowed those promises by doing as he pleased.

Mr. Beck, makes it a point that Mr. George Soros wants world domination. Historically, though, Mr. Soros has been a major force in assuring the elimination of Communism along with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. He is very pro-Democracy. He has a constitutional bent, second-to-none.

George Soros is very prosperous and is one of the richest persons the world over. He has made his fortune, fair and square, on the stock market and currency exchanges. Just because he possesses natural talent, in way of becoming rich, does not mean that he is aggressive or dominate. In fact, nothing in his history suggests he has ever been aggressive, in an unfavorable way. Did he practice deception with them? Of course he did.

Mr. Soros is on the favorable list, of many persons inspired by his courage and fortitude. George Soros remains and has been one of the most inspiring entrepreneurs, in the nation’s history. Hopefully, Mr. Beck will learn to mind his manners–however, not many of us are banking on it.
