  • Man ticketed for jaywalking after getting hit by truck

    The same thing happened to my sister when she was in college. She was jay-walking, and got hit by a guy on a motorcycle who was drunk.

    When she came to in the hospital, the nurse informed her that she had been given a ticket.

  • Trump Announces Much Anticipated #FakeNews Awards — BREAKS THE INTERNET!

    The fact that Krugman is still employed by the Slimes speaks volumes.

    There's no surprise here. Remember, the Slimes has a long history of killing stories of genocide, so Krugman is nothing. Not compared to the stories not just hiding the forced, mass starvation in the Ukraine, but knowingly publishing lies written by Walter Duranty, for which he won a Pulitzer. Or the Slimes spiking stories in the 1930s and 1940s, reporting on the Holocaust.

    Krugman isn't even a blip on the screen compared to the collusion with genocidal leaders with which the Slimes has participated.

    I LOVE #1! Krugman. Nobel Prize winning economist. I think Miss Cleo has a better winning percentage when it comes to predictions that Krugman!

    He’s SO WRONG, SO OFTEN!!!


  • What the Media Really Wants

    01/17/2018 10:59:44 PM PST · 11 of 22
    MarkL to Louis Foxwell
    Not long ago, the media finally let slip who their masters really are. As soon as they began floating the idea that President Trump was unbalanced, unfit, or even "insane," the media began to use the same tactics used by the old Soviet Union, and it became immediately evident that the "mainstream media," which has been the propaganda arm of the DNC, is really the propaganda arm of CPUSA, the "Communist Party, USA." That slip, by advertising the old communist tactic, has revealed that the DNC is actually just a front for CPUSA.

    Comparing the MSM to Pravda and Isvestia from the old Soviet Union, at least the later were honest enough to admit they were propaganda instruments.

    I'm also amazed at the claim that it's "unamerican" to criticize the media. Not at all. The reason it's actually something that's important is that there is nearly NO free, independent media in the USA. The media wasn't just uninterested in investigating the weaponizing of federal agencies against political opponents of the left, it worked hand in hand WITH the corrupt Obama regime to do the work of the regime. And what is probably the greatest shame of the so called "media" during the Obama regime is the way they ignored and even buried the surprising attacks of the Obama regime against the press! Wire tapping the AP? Lying to a federal judge to get a warrant to tap the lines of James Rosen of Fox News, and, I believe, his parent's home as well! Not a frigging peep by the NY Slimes, CNN, WAPO, or any other major rags or broadcast networks.


  • How to Downgrade Windows 10 and Reinstall Windows 7

    I'm not tech savvy but I'm switching to Ubuntu or Linux clone this weekend. If I can get that to work I'll never buy another Window product.

    I'm not one that uses Linux desktops, but I have a handful of Ubuntu Linux servers I manage at work, and they're bulletproof. I've had an email relay server running for nearly 2 years with only 3 restarts: 2 for major OS patches, and the third when we moved our data center to a new facility.

    I really like Ubuntu, and I've heard really good things about Linux Mint, which is based on Ubuntu.

    If you download their bootable image, you'll be able to try it before installing it on your system, though it will be substantially slower than if it were running on the hard disk.

    Be advised though, there are some apps that will simply not run on Linux under any circumstances, like iTunes. But if you have enough RAM on your system, you should be able to load a virtual machine system, like VirtualBox - - to run applications that require Windows. It doesn't work in EVERY instance, but it does work well for the most part.


  • Facebook is a ‘living, breathing crime scene,’ says one former tech insider

    01/16/2018 6:51:00 PM PST · 31 of 35
    MarkL to Oldeconomybuyer
    "Facebook is a living, breathing crime scene for what happened in the 2016 election — and only they have full access to what happened,"

    Really? Since months before the election, I've avoided Facebook like the plague. I think I've logged on to Facebook no more than a dozen times in more than a year. I got tired of all the "Trump is dumb," "Trump is evil," "Trump is a 'doo-doo head,'" idiocy, and I wasn't a Trump supporter until he won the nomination, because he wasn't the criminal running as a woman demonRAT. It wasn't because of "social media" that I voted for President Trump.

    Much to my surprise, President Trumps has been keeping his promises, something I'd figured was gone forever. I've become a POTUS Trump supporter, only partly due to the media attacks. I LOVE what POTUS Trump is doing, both with his policies, AND with the way he has the propaganda wing of the Communist Party USA (AKA demonRATS) blowing gaskets on an almost hourly basis.


  • Bat Bomb

    The poor little bats...

    When I was little, a bat flew into my bedroom one night, and the next morning, my father insisted that I had a nightmare. I insisted, and we found the bat under the curtains.

    While bats can carry rabies, they’re among the most voracious predators of flying insects.

    It’s far more likely that Durbin lied.

    Just like Harry Reid. And Hillary. And Obama. And Holder.

    It’s what leftist scumbags do.

    Donald Trump is the left's Emmanuel Goldstein, and the people of the left, implemented Orwell's "Two Minutes Hate" without realizing it.

    It's not the weapon, it's the man wielding it. And many items can become weapons in the "right hands."

    I do recall seeing a show about different countries' special forces training, and I recall seeing a segment on the Spetznaz, and they chronicled how they actually train using entrenching tools, and they're incredibly brutal.


  • CNN’s Stelter Glorifies Media for Finally Drawing Attention Trump’s Mental Problems

    01/07/2018 6:23:59 PM PST · 50 of 59

    I love the classics! The leftists claiming someone who’s destroying their plans is mentally ill. That’s exactly what the most murderous leftist governments, i.e. communists, as well as the Nazis, did.

    It’s nice to see the media honoring their elders, and trying to live up to the wonderful standards of Stalin, Mao, and Castro.


  • Bernie Sanders Claims ‘No One Wants’ A Border Wall

    I've decided that anyone who's against the wall should immediately remove any fencing on their property, and remove all locks from door and windows, since they know those protections don't work.

    That’s Valeria in Conan the Barbarian, also portrayed Red Sonya in the spinoff.

    That's Sandahl Bergman, quite the hot babe.

    Pam Greer is also really good in "Jackie Brown," the Tarantino movie. It's actually a great movie, and she's really good, and really great looking, in it.

    And this includes Sanders. He was a hippie bum for most of his useless life.

    As I recall, for a short time he lived on a "hippie commune," where he was despised, because he didn't want to work. I believe he left before he was kicked out.
