On the Facebook thing....

Years ago the wife had an account. We got like 2 notices about security issues and the things we needed to do to check if there were any breaches and how to avoid them in the future. Wife, being even more computer stupid than me, asked me to take a look at it. I did and then told the wife I have the perfect fix - delete your account. She commented how her rather large family was creating a network of people contacting my wife to be friends again after all these years. In other words, wife agreed to delete Facebook forever. :p:

If I haven't kept up being friends with people, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with ability. No need for a Facebook account. :thumb:

I have never had a facebook, twitter, Instagram, whatever, account. Could give a hoot less about the virtual life on a smart phone cuz I don't have one. I Have no use for technology. But that does not mean I don't know how to use it.

My Fellow Nevadans!
Guess I an a little more linked in than I thought. The petition to recall Nevada Gov. Sisloak (D) is out collecting sigs!
Where to sign is in link below. Must be signed in person! Not online! Must have voted in the last election. Spread the word. Sisolak only won by a very slim margin. Recalling Sisolak will be good for our state. Plus make the election year very interesting.:D

Oregon Republicans Disappear for Another Climate Vote


https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/oregon-republicans-disappear-for-another-climate-vote/ar-BB10lm0u?li=BBnb7Kz


So once again the Oregon R's have left the state to deny a quorum and deny the dems from shoving this awful cap and tax down our collective throats.


This is all because the Dems REFUSE to put this bill up for a vote by the citizens as they know it would go down in flames.


Notice the article does NOT give any details of what the bill does like intantly raise the gas tax 23cents a gallon, and instantly outlaw any commercial diesel powered vehicles (i.e. trucks/tractors/earth moving equip./etc.) built before 2007. I'd bet my lunch money the vast majority of Oregon farmers have tractors built before 2007 and don't have the money to upgrade.


Finally, to the best of my knowledge the $700,000,000 taxes raised each and every year does NOT have to be spent on anything related to the climate. Its simply a new source of revenue!!

Las Vegas has been buying one way Greyhound tickets for the homeless out of town since 2003. Coincidence Greyhound doesn't wish to have those purchases stop?

Btw, I only just heard about this program last night, but just read it's been going on here since 2003. Which REALLY begs the question, with the homeless population climbing and being such a problem today, is this program working at all for the community? :confuzeld

Doesn't look like it:

$20 million construction project will bring big changes to Las Vegas' Homeless Courtyard

https://news3lv.com/news/local/20-million-construction-project-will-bring-big-changes-to-las-vegas-homeless-courtyard

Now I'm no liberal genius, but I do know what happens when you feed a stray :confuzeld


"Homeless". And just like that, with a change of lingo, America rid themselves of their bums. :rolleyes:

Cops here used to do the same thing, until a new "woke" Police chief was appointed about 10 or 15 years ago, who stopped the practice. Now we are overrun with homeless bums. The chief? he has since retired and moved to another area.

So the mayor of San Francisco has declared a state of emergency because of the coronavirus. https://www.foxnews.com/health/san-francisco-declares-state-of-emergency-over-coronavirus


Well imagine that. The democrats on the left coast states have created conditions worse than a third world country due to their inability to handle the homeless population and now they want to be proactive? It's is just a matter of time before some homeless junkie gets infected and then the virus will spread like wildfire. What were you socialist free spirited idiots thinking? A state of emergency will not save your sorry a$$ because you didn't have the intestinal fortitude to manage the situation the right way the first time. What difference will this make? :wtf:

FBI requested interview with Prince Andrew on Jeffrey Epstein case, but received ‘zero cooperation’
https://www.rt.com/usa/479318-prince-andrew-fbi-epstein/

":wtf:", could be heard from Weinstein's jail cell. :D


Too bad Andrew isn't up for SCOTUS. You can bet there'd be several investigations, regardless who they may tick off.

And yes, I kid. But think about that for a second. Compare the evidence in the Kavanaugh case, which was ZERO.

Membership royalty has its privileges... and they tend to be 14-17.

NJ City moving toward allowing Muslim calls to Prayer via loudspeaker
https://nj1015.com/nj-city-moving-toward-allowing-muslim-calls-to-prayer-via-loudspeaker/
Okay, funny anecdote time...

Dad was a Detroit cop in the 60s. Which is next to Dearborn which is the largest collection of Muslims outside the Mid East. And they play those announcements over PAs. You can hear it and see them collecting on the streets. Dad said the cops driving by used to Censored with them by quickly turning off the ignition of the squad car and back on again to make those old carb cars backfire. ):h

Ah, good old fun days :hehe:

In all fairness, in the 80s, my childhood Muslim friends' parents used to call me the white devil. I thought it was funny. I was a kid and had no idea they actually meant it.

Edit: I was writing my post when yours went live torque.

Chris Matthews announces — on a Monday — he’s retiring and that today’s “Hardball” will be the last.

"After my conversation with NBC, I decided tonight will be my last Hardball. I’ll tell you why. The younger generations are ready to take the reigns."
@DonaldJTrumpJr
Not what I heard...
@NovoPublius
Replying to
@DonaldJTrumpJr
He asked a female of the younger generation to take the reigns... unfortunately he was naked on all fours and wearing a saddle at the time.

Romney could block Republican subpoena try aimed at the Bidens

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/romney-could-block-senate-committee-subpoena-aimed-at-the-bidens

"I would prefer that investigations are done by an independent, non-political body... There’s no question but that the appearance of looking into Burisma and Hunter Biden appears political. And I think people are tired of these kinds of political investigations," Romney told the Washington Post. [Except when it comes to Trump, then please let's support the dem witch-hunts]
What a POS. So glad he never got my vote.

Mitt, may you get to see your old pal McCain sooner than later.
