My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
When Google started there mission statement said Do No Harm.
There are people who started off with Windows, like me, and have not been an Apple fan.there are people who have been in the Android ecosystem as opposed to the Apple One. I am firmly entrenched in the Android ecosystem.
Google has been criticized, and rightfully, that it’s algorithms will radicalized individuals. This is true because of how, especially YouTube, and it’s algorithm will start sending you what it thinks you would want to see again, to keep your eyes on the screen. I once looked up how to lubricate the seals in my Volkswagen convertible and I had nothing but those videos showing up in my suggestion list.so if someone looks up an Isis video for example, they will be fed Isis video after Isis video. Let me be clear that Google doesn’t have Isis videos on its site, or so it thinks, people are clever and they will hide their their intentions but the algorithm doesn’t see that. So if you see one hate video you will see thousands of them come up on your suggestion list.
What Google is doing here is requiring companies that are advertising abortion services to prove that they actually offer abortion Services. What has happened in the past is that so-called pro-life companies or individuals have said they are abortion providers and then when somebody clicks on their ad it takes you into that dark world trying to keep you from doing what you need to do to your own body.
I applaud Google for this and I hope other companies like Facebook and Amazon will start taking a more proactive approach when they accept advertising. I have gone on and on on my block about the fact that Facebook accepted Russian currency for ads against Hillary Clinton. Who did they think was buying these hats? That’s why I deleted Facebook over a year-and-a-half ago and I’ve never looked back.
Kris Kobach is the scum of the Earth. You know him because he’s the one who doesn’t want minorities voting. So of course the Trump Administration looking for the best people are asking him to be in Trump’s cabinet, and as the Earth would do he is demanding a list of perks to take the job.
Can you imagine, and I’ve said this before on this blog, if let’s say either President Obama or a president Hillary Clinton had had an idiot like this guy asking for these perks what the Republicans head’s would do in unison?
And this from the “fiscally responsible” conservative Republicans! A Private jet on call!
If you’re reading my blog you like politics and so you may know this already. But I have to make a huge Point here, don’t your bank is not a respectable banking institution. It has been found to fund terrorist and terrace backwards. This is basically a bank of last resort if you are a corporation. And this bag, that has seen so much, thinks that Jared Kushner and Donald J Trump were suspicious in their activities.
It’s time for Congress to do its job and start down the road to complete investigation of this president. The election being less than 16 months away impeachment may not be the remedy. But congressional oversight certainly should be. And I have to ask respectfully to the chairman that have been giving this President these incredibly generous time frames for complying with subpoenas they need to stop. He’s not going to comply with subpoenas and we need information about this man before he does even more damage to our country.
War in Iranis looked upon by the GOP as a good distraction and a way of making people more patriotic and voting within the country’s interest. I think people are smart and they understand what war is. We had war with Iraq and is anybody happy with the outcome? I heard Tom Cotton on Meet the Press completely distort what’s happening with a Iran. Yes of late they are ramping up the fences because of this president. If you have a bully in school and you start taking self-defense courses one should not think of that as being hostile and its intentions but rather self-defense. I am no fan of Iran ruling establishment but the people of Iran are wonderful people and they should not be thrust into war because of some bull headed male testosterone driven War.

I guess Trump should kiss Melanie or Melania depending on how he wants to misspelled her name goodbye because not only is she here because a family ties but when she originally came she overstayed her visa. I want to bother you agency in the 80s and I know what H1 visas are like. you overstay your Visa you don’t come back in this country again.
I guess Barron Trump is an anchor baby.
It’s ridiculous to think that this President truly believes in what his advisors are shoving down our throats. whether it’s the war on Iran that John Bolton or Michael Bolton depending on how Trump recalls his name has been jonesing for is not only going to cause us to fall into a deep economic depression but we are also going to lose lots of wonderful people in our military.
Wars cost money, lots of money. And the new acting Secretary of defense, a Boeing executive, loves the fact that his company and most likely all the stock that he never got rid of when he became acting whatever is going to be a gold mine for him. I used to tell people that George W bush went to war in Iraq and then Lords taxes. It’s basically like you buying an expensive car and then quitting your job. You need an income to pay for these wars and these lower revenue numbers that we are now seeing because of this silly tax cut for the rich it’s going to be a huge problem for our economy.
President Obama negotiated a great deal with Iran and warmongers like Bolton want to wipe it away and start the bloodshed.
I’m all for this new immigration plan if it means that Trump and all of his family move back to wherever they came from.
Do you think that a guy whose name is Miller might be an immigrant or at least from an immigrant family can his past? He does not sound native American in any way and the way I see it unless you are native American you should be proud of America’s immigration policies that have made our country great.
Stephen Miller will not make our country great again he will make our country fail. I don’t have any idea of what happened in his childhood which has made him into this nasty creature that lurks the White House. it must have been something traumatic because even his own Rabbi thinks that Stephen Miller is a bad seed.
Immigration is the lifeblood of our country. Look at Japan with its aging population and no immigration looking at Doom in the future. How long has it been since you bought a Panasonic television?
If we are to prosper we need to bring you and wonderful people into our country. My dad and mom were immigrants and they were amazing people that contributed to their communities in every way they possibly could. I am a proud US citizen born in Houston Texas but I am still considering myself of immigrant roots.
ICE should not be abolished but their powers need to be curtailed. Angry people have taken over ice, should I say angry Republicans or just angry trumper’s? I’ll let the readers figured that out.
And now I’m speaking to my state legislators. California cannot be complicit in this terrible scheme. I know that attorney general Xavier Becerra will do the right thing.
I have yelled at the TV more times than I’d like to think about when Allen West was on spewing his form of conservatism. The NRA must truly be in trouble if this guy comes out and says that both Wayne LaPierre and the new president who replaced Oliver North are lying about access that the board has to financial information. Financial information like the $200,000 in suits that Wayne LaPierre has purchased on the NRA account. What is it with all of these Republicans buying expensive suits, remember Paul Manafort’s?
The NRA started as a gun safety organization and now it’s a purveyor of violence across the country. They claim the second amendment is there right to unlimited arms and yet they seem to forget the first words of the 2nd amendment which say “A well regulated Militia” and yet they negate the word regulated and go for all-out armament of themselves. It’s absurd and it’s even more absurd that courts have upheld this. Look at Australia which had a mass murder in 1998 and also had a strong gun ownership history. They banned guns bought them back and there has been complete drop in gun violence unprecedented in our times. Look at how fast New Zealand acted upon the same issue. It’s funny I’m watching the show called Janet King which is an Australian show that reminds me of Law & order. And season 2 there have been 19 murders over the course of 15 months by gun violence and they have set up a commission to figure out how to stop gun crime. 19 murders! That’s not even an hour in the United States. And by the way the guns were all imported to Australia from the US, any surprises there? It’s making us a hated country.
The United States of America is the number one gun exporter in the world and that’s the legal ones.
When is enough is enough? Sandy Hook, Parkland, Pulse Nightclub, all church, synagogue and mosque shootings or those on army bases? We have become numb to this violence just like we have become numb to the hatred spewing out of this white house and it’s time for a change before we lose our America forever.
I’m a blogger, not an investigative reporter. But I’ve got a good sense for numbers. So let’s see 35 million dollars a year on lawyers, 42 million dollars a year to an advertising agency, 60 million dollars towards the campaign of Donald Trump. that’s a lot of money for one nonprofit organization!
The NRA went from a gun safety organization to an organization that protects mass murders and their perpetrators.
the NRA and gun rights organizations in the US love to say that their rights are inalienable under the second amendment. Have we ever looked at the wording of the second amendment? The first words are a “well regulated militia”, regulations are in the first few words of the amendment. It was never meant to be an all out flooding of the market with high capacity and armor piercing bullets. Military-style weapons should be in the hands of the military. their arguments make as much sense as saying that we all have the right to have our own private nuclear Arsenal.
And as far as these leaked documents, they’re coming from Oliver North, one of the sleaziest people that we have had to deal with since the Reagan Era. He was the guy who sold weapons 2 hide from Congress the funding of an illegal act. Wayne LaPierre you go to bed with dogs you’re going to wake up covered in fleas.
The NRA has become a merchant of death and a very corrupt one at that.
Republicans seem to be a lot like little children. Little children cling to Santa Claus until they figure out that it’s all a big scam. Unfortunately for the Republicans who keep clinging to the belief that the dossier that was originally paid for by Republicans who running against Trump but for some reason that story has morphed into it being a democratic dossier, in the end Christopher Steele has proved to be a very good source.
So here comes Rodger Stone saying that the Christopher Steele dossier was the basis of his being investigated. That’s such bull. He was investigated because he was communicating with Russian operatives in the United States. He was investigated because he does underhanded deals just like his mentors Roy Cohn and Richard Nixon. Unfortunately judge Birdman who is overseeing his case is the same judge that oversaw Paul manafort’s case and she doesn’t take bulshit lying down. I am so happy that he’s spending all of this GoFundMe money on attorneys who are not going to be of any help to him, his only hope is a pardon from the corrupt man in the White House.
Some advice on tattoos. Only tattoo the names of your mom and your kids on your body. I wonder what’s going to keep Roger Stone from being somebody’s bitch in jail? His face or Richard Nixon’s face on his back? Inquiring minds want to know.
You hear the word Patriot and you think of something old-fashioned. Or some people think of football, but I think about country over party. When I was a kid and I was against what the Democratic president was doing in Vietnam I protested. I have basically voted straight democratic but I have eyes and ears and if my party was doing the things that the Republican party is doing right now I would jump ship.
So we see people like George Conway and judge Napolitano spit starting to speak out.Republican senator Richard Burr sent out a full subpoena to Don Jr because the Mueller report says that Don Jr refuse to answer questions but that there were questions in their minds as to whether or not he had lied to Congress. He lied to Congress the Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. These little cracks in the Fox network will start making larger and larger fissures because this is not sustainable. watching a president dismantle our country, put the worst people into positions and attack his opponent is not America it’s the dictatorship that Trump wants to create.
