Oh Joy

A weird looking 747 landed at Eglin AFB today and dumped an orange mess on the tarmac which was met by the current governor of Florida, Batboy. Then the sky was filled with various and sundry helicopters to make it seem like Trump and Scott gave a crap about the people from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Coast who got creamed by Michael. They congratulated themselves on what a great job they are doing while people are still waiting for food, water, or some one who gives a crap.

Meanwhile, the guy from the gas company who was turning on service at one of the apartments said he and some friends are taking the supplies they bought for Michael, along with some chain saws up to the smaller towns in the more rural counties inland. Like all locals, they know that the little places like Wing, Baker, Holt will get ignored like always.

In other news, Trump hung a new painting in the White House. I prefer the earlier versions of the genre.

Professor/Senator Warren had her DNA tested. It showed what I knew it probably would – she has one or more Native American ancestors. Anyone whose family has lived in Oklahoma for several generations is almost guaranteed to have a connection to one or more Native American tribes. Naturally the Toddler in Chief denies his million dollar bet regarding the DNA. He’s a schmuck and a welsher.

What fun Bryan! Too bad you didn’t have a…. Oh, never mind! 😉 😀

I tweeted about that painting & included a YT vid of “Who let the Dogs Out”. it’s going well! 😆

I’m surprised that Sen. Warren took the bait! I suspect she made a bad decision there.

Everything old is new again 😀

Senator Warren is considering a run for President in two years and she is clearing the decks. Al Gore and John Kerry ignored GOP lies and lost in close elections. She isn’t claiming membership in a tribe because each tribe has its own standards for membership and it is usually a full-blooded member of the tribe as a great grandparent or closer.

Indeed Bryan! Or, “Everything that goes around, comes around!” 😉 😆

I read your other post about Sen. Warren. Thanks! It did indeed clarify things.

I’m sure you already know this about your bastard Governor… But you may not have read this article in the Palm Beach Post, so just in case…

Medicaid paid drug-maker in Scott’s portfolio hundreds of millions

While governor he got a law passed to require everyone who received government benefits to take a drug test. The program cost the state millions, because the state had to reimburse the people who passed the tests, and poor people can’t afford to buy drugs, so fewer of them test positive for drugs than the general population.

The governor’s wife was the CEO of a company that performed drug tests. That company was the recipient of a major portion of the state money spent on drug testing. He was a crook before politics and will always be a crook.

OT: I thought you might find this useful. I came across this FREE Software site a year ago & forgot about it until I was looking through some archived bookmarks for something else. Good thing I found it as he has a new small W10 tool that’s useful for me. Anyway he had a lot of small tools that are useful for most versions of Win since XP or 7, as well as a few specific for Win10. Maybe you’ll find something useful.

Oh! Did you know that Windows Firewall Control (BiniSoft) was bought by Malwarebytes? The last version is 5.4.0.0 whilst they repackage it. I don’t know what will happen to licenses anyone paid for (it was Donationware). Doesn’t matter as I use WinPatrol Firewall & tools & you got them too. But just in case anyone else still uses it.

Also, Classic Start Menu (which became part of the Classic Shell suite) is now dead as of Dec. 2017. I bought the Stardock Object Desktop Suite on a special which includes Start10 that I use now & some other useful tools.

I should have added this above. A relatively new type of ransomware called GandCrab has been doing the rounds this year. Every time authorities think they have a fix for it, it *evolves*. there are currently 8 variants. Bitdefender released a free tool that effectively decrypts it. they also have free tools to decrypt LockCrypt, Annabelle & other tools.

Thanks for the heads up on the ransomware. The Norkoms need to make money somehow…

8 hipparchia { 10.27.18 at 7:32 pm }

she is clearing the decks. Al Gore and John Kerry ignored GOP lies and lost in close elections.

yep.

I don’t know whether she’s doing this in case of 2020, but I think trump’s refusal to donate the $1 million might increase democrat turnout some this year, which would be great.

I like Elizabeth warren a lot, but she’s probably only a smidgen to the left of Hillary. still, I would be insanely, idiotically happy to have either one of them (or president Pelosi) as MADAME PRESIDENT and I have sneakingly happy thoughts that trump is president right now because I think he’ll help make MADAME PRESIDENT more likely in 2020 than would otherwise have happened.

also, we have a woman running against matt gaetz. woo hoo! not that it’s likely to happen here in almost-Alabama, but it still makes me happy to conjure up visions of nov 7 2018 and “dr z goes to Washington.”

9 Bryan { 10.27.18 at 9:28 pm }

If a squirrel was running against Gaetz, I would vote for it. He and his father were both corrupt in the Florida legislature and they are still opportunistic carpetbaggers.

Elizabeth Warren is a conservative Democrat in line with her Oklahoma roots. The good news is that she wants to conserve the policies that pulled Oklahoma out of the Depression. She would level the economic playing field, which is vital to our prosperity.

There are a lot of women running against GOP #^)#@*!! Ahem! Including almost 1500 Teachers/Educators. I’m a member of a few large Twitter groups against Dotard/GOP. #GeeksResist & #TheResistance #Resistance. We support & help worthy Dem candidates get the word out. I don’t live in the USA, but most of the others in the groups do. Most help with fundraising etc. 😀 Here’s a few recent tweets of mine:

Nearly 1,500 Teachers Are Running For Office In November’s Elections

This is a good thread from a fellow Resistance member about Dr. Kim Schrier:
Meet @DrKimSchrier (D) who is running an exciting race that has turned a Republican stronghold district into a toss up

And I love things like this one, where a GOP Candidate get’s thrown under a bus by their own family! IT’s happened to a few now. 😀

Annnnd… yet another GOP candidates own family dump’s him!

Some days… I do loooove my *job*. 😉 😀

11 hipparchia { 10.28.18 at 8:05 pm }

1500 teachers running for office???? that’s great! thanks for that little bit of good news, kryten. 🙂

The good news is that she wants to conserve the policies that pulled Oklahoma out of the Depression.

that’s a good line, I’m going to have to borrow it from you. a lot. 😉

12 Bryan { 10.28.18 at 10:14 pm }

The teachers finally snapped over low pay and lousy working conditions. For an extended period McDonalds was paying more a day that the local school district paid substitute teachers.

Things need to change, and the only way of doing it is by replacing the whackoes that infest government at all levels.

Families really don’t want to be associated with the coming disaster caused by the Mango-colored Moron.

Dotard being Dotard in the Florida race:

Trump Launches Racist Attack On Andrew Gillum As Florida Democrats Surge

When you can’t win with honesty, actual facts or policy debate, attack the opponents race, gender, sexuality, etc. etc. That’s simply racist, misogynist, bigoted POTUS Dotard’s & the GOP’s normal style. *shrug*

14 Bryan { 10.29.18 at 8:26 pm }

The reaction to Michael has not been great, and it went through Republican counties. Taking nasty swipes at Andrew Gillum isn’t going to help DeSantis. People are paying attention to two shootings and the mail bombing. Trump doesn’t know how to take advantage of these disasters and rally the country behind him. He isn’t a very competent politician.

15 Badtux { 10.30.18 at 12:00 am }
16 Kryten42 { 10.30.18 at 10:22 am }

Yep! I did loooove that so-called debate! It had everything, except anything remotely related to a *debate* from DeSantis. Only to be expected from a GOP nominee/appointee of course! I am seriously hoping Floridians suddenly get struck with sanity, enlightened self-interest, a modicum of self respect & a touch of self preservation (a lot to hope for I know) and vote for Gillum. *shrug* At least trump is helping the GOP Candidates lose. Unsurprising… losing is all he knows!

See his latest threat to write an EO to revoke the 14th Amendment? Of course, his base love it & are far to stupid to understand an EO cannot revoke any Amendment! *shrug*

Plus the fact that he looooves the $$$ from Russians living in his buildings to have US babies! Wonder how many will be *sleepers*. 😉😏

17 Bryan { 10.30.18 at 9:51 pm }

Mr. Gillum has dealt with dreck like Trump and DeSantis his whole life. He won’t back down, and the Florida GOP are stuck with the worst candidate of their field. You have to wonder how many Republicans crushed by Hurricane Michael are going to bother to vote. Trump and Scott should have worked a lot harder on relief and recovery.

18 Kryten42 { 11.01.18 at 12:57 am }

Seems a few FL GOP, such as David Jolly, are voting for Gillum (they claim it’s anti-Trump vote). But I doubt that the real reason. 😉

Ex-GOP lawmaker: I voted for Gillum over DeSantis in Florida

19 Bryan { 11.01.18 at 9:19 pm }

Gillum’s GOP opponent, DeSantis has tied himself to Trump, that’s how he won the Republican primary. A vote for DeSantis is a vote for Trump. Jolly can’t stand Trump and what Trump has done to the GOP, so he won’t vote for DeSantis or Scott for Senate. The ‘moderate’ wing of the Republican Party may just sit out the midterms.

20 Kryten42 { 11.01.18 at 11:59 pm }

My friends & I on twitter are seriously PMSL 🤣🤣 over the most inept attempt I’ve seen to try to smear Mueller with sexual assault allegation by non-existent women!

I made a series of tweets the past few days about it. It started with a good bit of investigative reporting (how rare is that?) by Ed Krassenstein @ HillReporter (with updates)

Special Counsel Alerts FBI Of Scheme To Pay Women To Accuse Mueller Of Sexual Assault

Then, the Daily Beast did some reporting about it (with a heavy dose of incredulity over the ineptitude of the two morons involved, Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman):
Mueller Smear Pushed by Pro-Trump Activists Falls Apart at Press Conference

Finally, one MSM company, NBC, decided to also publish a piece:

Alleged victim is a no-show for news conference claiming Mueller ‘sex assaults’

The final question from a reporter nailed it: “Are you both prepared for federal prison?”

🤣🤣

We posted @ the same time! 😀 Yeah, that’s what I suspected from all I’ve read about Jolly.

21 Bryan { 11.02.18 at 10:35 am }

This another example of the “O’Keefe” wing of Republican ratfuckers. You can laugh, but some people actually believe and vote based on their stupid games. Attacking Mueller was really stupid because he isn’t a politician, and isn’t tied into the code of politicians not to pursue charges against ratfuckers. That reporter got it right – Federal prison is a real possibility.

It costs $10/year for an anonymous registration of a domain name. It costs not much more for a burner phone and throw-away phone number. There are any number of businesses that will rent you a business address and post office box for minimal money. These clowns didn’t even try. It is also considered better form if you zip up your fly before press conferences 👿

22 Badtux { 11.02.18 at 1:38 pm }

When asked about the fact that Mueller was in jury duty in another city on the day Mueller supposedly did what Wohl is accusing him of, Wohl says the media is not investigating whether Mueller was in two places at once.

To “prove” that the accuser exists, Wohl tweeted a picture of himself with the “accuser” with the “accuser’s” face painted out with Windows Paint. A Google Images lookup of the image looking for similar images found the identical image without the paint — and showed that it was actually his Los Angeles girlfriend in the photo.

This is beyond farce, and into the criminally inept. Are we sure that Wohl is not from Florida? 😉

23 Bryan { 11.02.18 at 5:48 pm }

“… when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth” which means in Wohl’s mind that Mueller has a working transporter. 😈

The basic problem of these clowns is they didn’t do the basic research necessary to make their story seem possible if not probable. They created one of the most easily disproven smears is ratfucking history.
