My meanderings about politics, 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.
Poor Pinocchio, he’s getting a bad rap. He lied a couple of times but it’s so unfair that his name be dragged through the mud with the Tangerine nightmare’s.
I remember In a place far far away and a Time long ago when a President would speak and it was mostly the truth. Oh wait that was two years ago and here. It’s difficult to watch an institution that I have looked up to for all of my life being destroyed by this man for his own purposes.
It’s amazing the links that people will go through to make fools of themselves. You don’t invite the whole news media to an event and then not have the event as promised. These people are full of it and anyone who knows Robert Mueller knows that they are. What a lame October surprise.
Being merely a blogger I don’t have access to the news media’s journalism and reach. I do have my brain. It became evident to me last year when it was revealed that Facebook received rubles, the Russian currency, in payment for ads running on their platform against Hillary Clinton. My brain tells me that Mark Zuckerberg was trying an experiment. I truly believe that Mark Zuckerberg thinks the world is is giant petri dish. One only needs to think about the fact that they tried to manipulate the Facebook stream to your content and see whether or not they could change your mood. I refuse to be a guinea pig and left Facebook about a year ago.
Removing Mark Zuckerberg would be a first step in my feeling a little bit more confident about Facebook. It certainly will not be what makes me get back to the platform.
I must be one of those violent Democrats because I did not watch anything to do with Kavanaugh’s Vote or swearing-in. Hand the hypocrisy of having a second swearing-in just baffles me. But then everything that this White House does baffles me.
I rarely ask that you go to the link that I post regarding the stories. I do urge you to go and watch the video for yourself. It’s rather disturbing.
My divorce from Facebook is coming up on a year. I deactivated, deleted or however you want to say my Facebook account on November 11th 2017. I have not regretted it one minute. What I have seen his how ubiquitous Facebook has become. I cannot interact with the Stonewall Democratic party here in Los Angeles without Facebookas well as someone who does have Facebook. That being said the problems with Facebook are so ingrained that I truly believe it’s going to take a massive Exodus for them to start listening to us.
Oh and I did lose 55 pounds after getting rid of it and have not gained another pound. Kudos to me.
If you do a search on my blog for deleting or deactivating Facebook you will find step by step instructions. Our privacy is well worth a little inconvenience.
This is what happens when you have a white house and it’s an Administration that does not know what they’re doing. The head of the FCC who would be the point man for solving this issue is useless. He’s the same idiot that things that net neutrality is not a good thing. He’s the same idiot that is suing the state of California for their new net neutrality law.
The screenshot that I have attached to the to this post is just a slice of my day with the robo calls. They never stop. I am on the Do Not Call Registry. I have put my phone on permanent do not disturb so that only my friends can get through but that’s not a good answer because I missed calls from individuals that I don’t know but I need to talk to like repair people and doctors who blocked their numbers. This needs to be fixed but I don’t think it will be fixed until there’s an uproar and we get some action from the White House.
We are meant to have a government by the people, for the people and yet this President seems to think that it’s a government for his Base by his base. Let all others be damned. Brett Kavanaugh and his views go contrary to the vast majority of the American people. By the Numbers 72% believe that women should have the right to decide how to deal with their bodies. 75% of Americans believe that we need stricter gun control laws. And these numbers are the same if you talk about campaign reform, civil rights, and so many other issues that will come before The Supreme Court. So why did the Tangerine nightmare in the White House pick Brett Kavanaugh? Brett Kavanaugh believes in an imperial presidency. That word hasn’t cropped up since the Nixon era and here we are coming back. Okay. Let us not forget this is a lifetime appointment of a man who’s in his 50s which means we will be saddled with him for a generation. So when you think about whether or not you’re going to vote in November think about how important your vote is. Just to give you a little bit of perspective Hillary Clinton lost Michigan by only two votes per Precinct, just too.
It seems that the only way a member of the GOP in 2018 that serves in the senate or the house is willing to stand up to this President and his bad decisions is that they are not running for reelection. I applaud Jeff Flake for his courage but it may be a calculated decision as he is looking to run in 2020 against the Tangerine nightmare in the White House.
It’s is indicative of a terribly bad choice that was put up Ford Supreme Court merely to protect the person in the White House from being impeached. This nominee believes in an imperial presidency that basically has no control over its power. And yet I wonder if the presidents were Democrat if this nominee would feel the same way. Even Mitch McConnell was against the nomination because Mitch McConnell thought he was too far out into the far-right stratosphere. Let’s hope that this is the beginning of the end for this nominee’s path to the Supreme Court for a lifetime appointment.
Donald J Trump is volcanic in his anger about the op-ed in the New York Times. He has asked that the New York Times turnover this individual, under National Security concerns, to the government. Saddam Hussein must be laughing right now.
It’s funny how whoever this person may be the speculation of who it is runs the gamut from someone who’s a true patriot to the president himself writing it. Look, judge Cavanaugh, is having a really bad time in front of the Senate even though it is republican held. He has been shown to have been surprised by the allegation that he lied in front of Congress in 2006 when he was up for the judgeship he sits on. He is a fringe thinker at best the almighty Federalist Society did not have them on their short list but his weird ideas of how we have an imperial presidency put him at the top of Trump’s list.
So if it’s a patriot or the President and either case it’s going to be a bumpy road ahead.
Surprise, surprise surprise that Facebook doesn’t want us to see what they did during the 2016 presidential election.
Transparency means transparency and not transparency with an Asterix.
it’s time that Facebook and Martha fess up to what they fail to do or did during the 2016 election. They accepted advertising against Hillary Clinton paid for in Rubles. If that did not set off alarms What would?
