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.
This could not have happened to a more deserving evil corporation. Facebook is digging its own grave. Zuckerberg and his minions think they are the Masters of the universe, the problem most asked is whenever someone thinks they’re the master of the universe the universe strikes back. Is this case Apple strikes back. shutting down all the internals apps that Facebook employees used to communicate with each other a move as masterful as something Nancy Pelosi with do to Trump.
Today has been a bad news Day for Facebook. First Banks set off alarms because too many people were asking for chargebacks. Turns out Facebook sneered teenagers into thinking they were playing a game just for the cost of all of their internet data in fact they started charging the teenagers parents cards without giving any notice to anyone. Parents saw it on their bills started calling the banks and credit card companies and the chargebacks started. When a company has more than 1% in chargebacks in a month, alarms go off. Facebook had 5%!
This Insidious company that has tried to become the new Ma Bell, is finding itself on the same receiving end that AT&T did at the turn of the century. AT&T was broken up into lots and lots of smaller entities and I think Facebook is going to be facing the same state. It’s why Facebook is trine too quickly merge as many of these companies into one so that when they split up it will seem like the government has done its job. merging Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger into one unit does not mean that they should not be divided even more. This company has gotten too big and it is not too big to fail.
what is it with Republican presidents and their choices for FEMA chief ? You remember Katrina and George Bush saying that Brownie did a great job. A great job that cost almost 2,000 people to lose their lives. Now we have Puerto Rico and Maria with eerily the same amount of people that died in 911, 2975. And by the way don’t believe the White House, they lie all the time, this was done by an independent organization that has no political affiliations.
why are they diverting funds from FEMA when we’re having terrible hurricane season to go to ice so that they can arrest more immigrants trying to save their families? This is Despicable and I am so tired of this continuous barage from this White House of Lies, they don’t know how to tell the truth anymore.
First and foremost I want to remember John McCain as the American hero he was. Captured in Vietnam and held for five years. He was offered a quick release by his captors because his father was an admiral but he said until his Conrad’s who had been captured were released as well he would not leave. He was tortured, beaten and brought to the edge of death more than once. I remember the day he came off the plane to a hero’s welcome. His body may have been broken but his Spirit was not.
To me John McCain has been fun enigma. His autobiography is called maverick and yet one here and against President Obama in 2008 he was anything but. He brought Sarah Palin to the four front and I believe that that has had a profound affect on our politics. He picked her the way Trump pics his nominees without knowing them. She was a long person for the job and she made a trump presidency more acceptable. So it’ll way I do blame cetera McCain for Trump.
Since Trump has been in office McCain has been a thorn in his side but an important votes like the tax plan he went along with the terrible ideals of this presidency. A tax plan that Republicans are walking back now because 1.5 trillion dollars would have easily paid for college for every single American who wants to go. And there would have been lots more left over from that. Instead we gave the rich a tax break and they are never going to spend the money. And the middle class has got a whopping $15 every two weeks in their paycheck!
In the end I wonder if Trump will be attending John McCain’s funeral. I hope not, he is a stain on our country and its institutions and should not be honored.
How many ways can we say that the douchebag does not fall far from the douchebag tree. Or should we use our illustrious president’s new world scumbag, or maybe just playing douche. In any case this does not in any way surprise me. Donald Trump jr. finds it exciting, and I think in the sexual way to kill endangered species. So what’s a little Affair here on the side
Oh, how I long for those days of the Bush twins getting drunk while they were in college.
First a little bit about what I know regarding Proton Mail. Proton Mail was designed by a group of physicists at the CERN reactor in Switzerland. The reactor was down for routine maintenance and they had a lot of time on their hands and they started thinking about creating a mail system which could not be intercepted by hackers. Unfortunately Proton Mail has one huge problem. You have to input a password in when you send it and the receiver has to put their own password when they want to read it. So what’s happened is that people like me signed up for Proton Mail never used it because they’re not enough people out there who want to do that much work to read an email. So those who use Proton Mail or in two categories. The first category are people who are paranoid about governmental intrusion in their email and the second category are criminals.
That all being said, you can understand why use of Proton Mail in governmental emails should be forbidden. It’s encryption was designed by physicists and if you watch The Big Bang Theory Sheldon has told you how smart physicists are. It’s basically impossible to open unless you’re the NSA and want to spend huge amount of time on trying to open a single email.
This brings me to the second point, when you hire the best people, well the best people in the mind of Donald Trump, this is what happens. This staffer was using proton mail something no staffer in the White House should be using because White House email is already very secure. Perhaps this staffer had his own personal reasons for using it or he was trying to hide something, I won’t speculate on that.
But really, if you’re hiring the best people would they leave their password on White House stationery ona bus bench? And whatis this staffer trying to hide?
Donald Trump has called himself the king of debt, perhaps you should have called himself the Emperor of debt. Ironically a huge amount of the debt is being held by Goldman Sachs. He does not like transparency. People who don’t like transparency are usually doing something wrong.
What is another broken contract to Donald Trump? Nothing even if it’s with a bunch of kids who came out in support of him. This man is so low that I don’t believe there has been another candidate for president that has stooped this low even Nixon.
Click on the link below to Reid the horrid details of this.
In his normal diplomatic way it seems that Donald Trump invited Mike Tyson then disinvited Mike Tyson in a bizarre, well this is Donald Trump, tweet.
The CNN reports that this aging if not plain old group of performers will be making appearances at the Republican National Convention. Some of the groups original members have all died. I can’t wait how this list stands up to who the Democrats will be having. Here is the list quoted from the CNN article:”And for entertainment at some of the ancillary events surrounding the official confab, look for Journey, the Beach Boys, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry and Poison frontman Bret Michaels, Bloomberg reports. Other bands slated to perform at events in Cleveland include Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd.” Since none of these groups are real favourite of mine it looks like I won’t be watching the RNC.
