My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ 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.
I’m not sure how Kelly O’Donnell sees the world. perhaps it’s because she has flaming red hair and comes from a country where immigrants are no longer attacked. let’s take the wayback machine a hundred years and see how Irish immigrants were being treated at the time by the US. I think that she was protecting are turf at the White House Press room. But I don’t know why anyone would need to anymore since the only time you hear from the White House is one a fat, sweaty, screaming old man stands in front of a helicopter and just blurts out whatever is on the top of his head. most of it is lies, isn’t that strange, most of what we hear from the White House are lies. So Kelly O’Donnell you should apologize to Ayman Mohyeldin since the countries his people come from are continuously attacked by a lying White House.
In the first 90 seconds before his normal show John Oliver set everything that needed to be said about what’s happening right now.
When I said on Twitter. The current occupant of the White House has blood on his hands I was locked out of my Twitter account for 12 hours. They call it Twitter jail I call it completely unfair. when Trump rants and rails on his Twitter account spewing hatred and racist views no one puts them in Twitter jail.
Is John Oliver I posted what he said tonight I guess if he were not a celebrity he would also be put away in Twitter jail.
There’s a disease in this country and there is no two ways around it. Even senator Pat Toomey asked that Mitch McConnell bring back the Senate to vote on common Sense gun reform. Then Mitch McConnell broke or injured his shoulder. I would like to see those x-rays.
Wawa on hiatus from Twitter although I’m not on there all that much, I watched the latest episode of elementary on CBS. Their story line right now is about someone who owns the biggest search engine who uses his data to look for those who might kill and preemptively kills them before they get a chance to do so. When Sherlock tries stop himhe’s confronted with the fact that this man is so powerful because he controls how the people of the world think of their politicians. Sound like anyone you might have heard of maybe somebody like Mark Zuckerberg or the now very cozy with the oval Office CEO of Twitter Dorsey.
I’m famously no longer on Facebook, Instagram and I had all intentions of leaving Twitter. I still might but then who would read this blog other than myself and that I consider that mental masturbation.
Since this is a place I can say what I feel well I truly believe that Trump, the GOP and the NRA have the hundreds of people’s blood on their hands that have died in mass shootings, all 291 so far this year.
I have blocked Trump on Twitter. I don’t need to see his unhinged rantings. we have enough stress in our lives without having to deal with this man. If I need to send a message to him I use the @POTUS address which I hope he will lose on January 21st 2021.
Block clean up on Twitter is making everyone lose followers. They weren’t really people and it seems that this egotistical Maniac in the White House believes that he is light because Russian bots are following him. Twitter is removing these bots and slowly but surely his numbers are dwindling. plus I think that this quote from the article from quarts makes the point best:
Perhaps if this man wasn’t a raving lunatic he would keep his Twitter followers. But honestly if any other president had openly talked about the fact that he’s losing Twitter followers we were all laughing at him or her. I have yet to hear a single member of the democratic party running for president talk about their Twitter followers.
It feels like companies today are out to kill small business. I drive through the streets of Los Angeles and see it all the variety of stores that are open and I wonder how they stay alive. now companies like GrubHub who own a bunch of other delivery companies are now faking information regarding a restaurant so that you don’t go to the restaurant when you place your order but rather do it through one of grubhub’s subsidiaries and then not only are you paying more but the restaurant makes less. Click on the link below to find out how to order your food ethically.
Yes Amazon is a great resource but think I’m any stores have gone out of business because of it.
The word fake has certainly made quite a comeback in the era of trump. Those of us who hear the word fake news either are horrified or chuckle, I am always horrified and I’ve stopped using the word site even in my daily conversations as not to bring up the memory of fake news in someone else’s head.
We have fake videos also known as deepfake which can be used by anyone with a decent laptop to make videos of anyone saying anything. I know this is going to be prominent in the 2020 election cycle and beyond. As technology gets better it’s going to be harder and harder to see what is actually the truth. Putting words into an opponent’s mouth that he or she had never said will be commonplace. I remember when Photoshop first appeared on the scene. In the early 90s it was easy to see that something was photoshopped. It’s getting harder and harder to see that as the technology and the skills of those using it have improved.
And now we have fake science. Whether it’s these weird anti-vaccination people who’s ranks are growing day by day. I saw that Jessica Biel is not one of these anti-vaccination weirdos.I am 65 years old and in pretty good health for a man my age. I have had every vaccination that is cold for my medicine since I was born and I continued that practice today. I’ll be having my pneumonia vaccine done on the 17th of June. I schedule my flu shot vaccine in October and have my yearly physical at the same time. What’s a science is not just a sad story of people who are desperateI am 65 years old and in putting it is health for a man my age. I have had every vaccination that is cold for my medicine since I was born and I continue that practice today. Hope he having my pneumonia vaccine done on the 17th of June. I schedule my flu shot vaccine in October and have my yearly physical let the same time. But say science is not just a sad story of people who are desperate for a cure it’s also story about how Facebook in Twitter spread these ridiculous claims. Drinking bleach? Really? I know this mother was trying to make her infant better so I understand why the police did not pursue charges but even in Kansas I hope they are following up on the carrot she’s giving her kids.
I think we need to defend the first amendment a lot more than we need to defend the second one. That being said there are times when the first amendment needs to be breached. The famous case is the one where someone yells fire in a movie theater when there is no fire. Well I think that that same rationale should be used on social media for posts that claim things that are dangerous to do. Prime example giving bleach to your child to get rid of autism or telling people that vaccines are dangerous. enough is enough and it’s time for social media to take responsibility for what they are doing to our communities.
This is what state of Kansas is like for those who can’t take care of themselves:
Local police, the state’s division of adult protective services and a medical doctor treating Jeremy have all declined to intervene. A police spokesman said there wasn’t enough evidence that chlorine dioxide was dangerous; a caseworker with the Kansas Adult Protective Services told police that she didn’t see the situation as serious enough for the state to take action.
Shame on Kansas.
Yesterday I deleted my Twitter account. I was harassed for being gay by a trump supporter but Twitter said that he did not violate their guidelines because this person did not have a history of doing this. Does that mean that I can go out and shoot someone and not have any repercussions because I have never had a history of shooting someone. I won’t be unnecessarily upset because I’m on some social media platform. So unfortunately I think my blog will be coming to an end next month.yesterday I deleted my Twitter account.

Then a great run but after leaving Facebook my traffic was cut by 95 percent and Twitter and LinkedIn were my only ways to reach out to potential readers. I don’t have advertising on this blog but posting so that one or two people see it is what I think is akin to mental masturbation.
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.
In one of the best keynote speeches ever, former Texas Governor Ann Richards said some things which war ain’t at George HW Bush but still live the test of times today. Just replace poor George with poor Donny:
This was a turning point in his re-election and other than his gaffs at the grocery store where he had seen the laser check out readers for the first time he made himself look completely out of touch.
poor Donnie, worried that his Twitter account is going down. Yes his Twitter account is going down because there is a movement to unfollow him. I have actually blocked him and when I need to reach out to him via Twitter I use the @POTUS45 account.
I wonder if they’re Twitter CEO also spoke to him about the fact that he uses targeted harassment of individuals which violates the basic tenets of the community of Twitter. sure Dempsey doesn’t want him to stop tweeting because it’s a source of revenue and that makes me sick.
I have left Facebook, Instagram and now only have a presence on Twitter and linkedin. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be on Twitter. These places are becoming cesspools of hatred.
It must feel like they were just told there was no Santa Claus. PizzaGate, child slave trade markets, all the other idiotic things that they came up with in their cult-like beliefs are all going down the drain.
I hope the sting they are feeling today will last for the next 18 months and they don’t go out and vote for Trump. It’s quite clear now that the dust has settled and smart people have read them all a report or what we can see of it that’s Trump was not indicted or brought up on charges because of the Justice department’s weird regulation that a president cannot be indicted while in office. Robert Mueller made it quite clear and its final pages that when or if the Congress decides to impeach Trump then criminal prosecution can follow because statute of limitations would not be running out at that point.
I’m a little disappointed and not hearing from Nancy Pelosi today. I know she’s in Europe but I believe there is these newfangled things called telephones or Internet, television camerasshe is an effective leader of the democratic party until we have a nominee and we needed to hear from her. That being sent I think the Democrats have the wind in their backs now as I’ve said so many times before Republicans win by cheating did the Democrats know how to lose better than anybody else on the planet.
At least the night as I lay my head on the pillow I go to sleep knowing that there is a larger crook in the white house then even Richard Nixon was. Richard Nixon made the mistake of recording his crimes something that Trump did not do. I don’t think the shoes of all dropped. Mother farmed out so much of the work that did not involve Russia or collusion and the difference offices of the Department of Justice across the country will follow suit as well as the FBI. This is not over.
Purdue Pharma has literally hundreds of thousands of people’s blood on their hands. The sorrow that they have caused for the counselors people in our country who have become addicted and some of whom have died is unmeasurable.
Just in case you don’t know who they are they are the marketers and creators of Oxycodone. Oxy has even permeated my life. My best friend, or former best friend, was addicted to this drug and stole money from me while I was in the intensive Care Unit at Mount Sinai hospital in Miami Beach. This is a friend that I had known for 39 years. That’s what drugs do.
So I join John Oliver in the Manning that’s galleries and museums across the country remove the Sackler name from there positions of Honor and remind people that the Sackler name is covered in blood.
