The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Go to h-e-double-hockey-sticks WordPress for blocking my blog posts from being sent to my Google email. What do you bastards hope to accomplish?

I just tried sending a blog to my gmail at least two dozen times and never once did it send it. Instead, it gives me these stupid “captcha” images asking me to identify motorcycles or tractors in such tiny images that someone who is visually impaired and zooms the pictures to see them and it is difficult to view. Must be no one enforces the ADA, as we were supposed to do when I was doing websites, web pages, and wikis. Go to h-e-double-hockey-sticks, you younger generation who are the crux of this matter. OK. I apologize if I ever offended someone at a younger age who was visually impaired. Maybe you want to rub my fingers in broken glass.

Ameri3an tycoons with their autocracy, go to hell, pound salt, suck eggs, and eat shit. You are disgusting people.

I hope a dog pisses on your captcha fire hydrants and destroys them. You push me into a corner and take away my control over my own computer and blog that you make me angry. If I bury the anger than it leads to depression and you bet I won’t do that. Go to hell.

Frustration: I Want Control of my Own Technology

I feel as if someone else controls my computer and Internet access in the America I live in today. Why?

Best Buy wants me to put their virus-controlling software solely on my computer but is unable to remove the MalWareBytes which still controls my computer with reiterative popups and the slowing of my computer. I don’t want the GD MalWareBytes reports. I want them to end. So what do I do? How do I gain control of my own computer and “fatally execute” the MalwareBytes program?It’s a bummer to try this or that or this or that. It’s a bummer to realize Best Buy left the damn software on my computer the last time they did the technical support for which I pay an annual fee. What gives here?

Seems to me I am always in a war and having to be contentious. Most of the time it is with big corporate American companies, from Best Buy to Gannett to Verizon to Spectrum. Why should we, as Americans, always be pitting one against the other? I point out that, rather than getting extensive tort reform, we see lawyers as politicians and with businesses to advertise and encourage Americans against Americans, rather than push for something which would stop the extensive costs thrust upon all in the Middle Class by personal injury lawsuits and workman’s comp crap.

What are lawyers about? Being a bunch of cowards and chickens, afraid of challenging this lousy attitude to pit Americans against Americans? In the process, we now have Proud Boys and others who wish to pit against a government, as if the government “is the problem,” as Reagan once said. I am insulted that there are those who wish to act like “they” with whom they are opposed are the government, as imperfect as such an institution is. Yet, these damn Proud Boys never take on big corporate America which is ripping off the American people in the Middle Class. The Trumpicans rip off American Middle Class so that many of us in the Middle Class no longer have tax deductions or credits for charitable contributions, property tax payments, sales tax payments, mortgage interest or credit card interest. Yet, the corporate social welfare group at the top, with all the money, get tax credits by Trump and his goons. Go ahead, you GD Proud Boys and QAnon, stick with your bloody false conspiracies and all the rest, while lawyers continue with their push for pitting Americans against Americans with frivolous lawsuits, claiming they are doing the American Middle Class a favor, just as the Trumpicans figure they are doing the Middle Class a favor with tax credits for the wealthy. Bullshit on that idea.

There was a very good lawyer who died while ending his term as governor of Florida and never being able to run against George W. Bush for president in 2000. His name was Lawton Chiles. He worked with several other states to gain money back from big tobacco, not for individuals, in order to help pay the high healthcare costs for the state having to deal with lung cancer, as a result of cigarettes. He was hated by the crowd and cowards of Trumpicans of that day. Hated so much that the “south rising again,” moved big tobacco company production to another area where they wish “the white south will rise again.” Namely, South Africa.

As for this lousy technological business in America. Rather than write instructions for installation of a door knob, in layman’s terms, it uses words foreign to most people who don’t work in carpentry and construction. The “rose” around the handle, for instance. What the hell is that supposed to mean?

I have been through dozens of remote keyboards and mouse and found they all suck, whether from Microsoft or Logitech. Once again, I have those which I feel like picking up and, as a celebrity said about the lack of reliable smart phone service, throw it against the wall or out the window. American products have become just like what Americans thought were low quality Japanese products after World War II. American products were always superior. Love of money freaking fat cats with the largest amount of stock, the ones who have corporate welfare due to the tax breaks given by the Trumpicans, have ruined American business. Biden is trying to include this correction in an infrastructure bill which is being blocked by Republicans. I have to ask. Who does Trump, Giuliani, McConnell, Scott, DeSantis work for? The Communist Chinese or Putin of Russia or who exactly? The sabotage they impose, in the name of stifling the Congress. Shall I spend time going over the details for which I am outlining here? Probably not because most of my readers may not read all the details anyway, especially if they view everything from the low-life scum perspective of Trump and the Trumpicans.

Everything I type on these damn keyboards and I am sabotaged in my typing. The word “pro” becomes a “pr0o.” I am FORCED to make a correction. The word, “basic” is done like “bosic.” “A” and “O” are on opposite ends of the keyboard, so how does that happen? The shift key is rarely released in time for the second letter after a capital letter is typed. “Time” is “TIme.” And so forth. Perhaps I need to become angry and use all caps? I was hired to do typing in college while using a Smith Corona or IBM typewriter. I never had so many mistakes as I do on these GD computer keyboards we have today. Why? A “rose” on a door handle is a “rose” so by any other name it would be nonsense, right?

THis is terrible and scummmy in American products taday, along with the lousy instructions provided for equipment and supplies in this wonderful DIY world which is suposed to save us so damn much money. CSich a world of products and instructions, reated by who and where?

TECHNOLOGY: It’s Humans, Stupid, Not Technology

Technology is a blessing and curse. The Internet is a blessing and a curse. With Spectrum Internet, it is all so slow in loading many items that we are back in the 1950s when it took minutes for a television to begin because of the vacuum tubes in the televisions. Mattered not whether there was an antenna on the roof or “rabbit ear” antenna indoors. The vacuum tube was slow in warming up. Besides, in the 1950s, there was NO cable television. That did not come into the homes, particularly in hilly areas like Upstate New York and Pennsylvania, until the 1960s. The signal was more reliable and not subjected to those who do the hacking.

In the 1960s and later, Castro, with his centrally planned supply side economics, figured a way to “jam” the signals he did not wish for his people to view. It was usually Miami and South Florida signals he jammed, but perhaps there were Voice of America signals he jammed as well(?). IT was not the technology, stupid. It was humans, stupid, who were running Castro’s island and did not wish for the people to have happiness.

In America, we face such “jamming” and removal of our happiness. Many times. Just recently, a favored streaming radio station was “jammed.” Yep. Jelly all over the place (NOT). It was taken off a Favorites list on one streaming service within Roku. When checking another streaming service, it was claimed, earlier this week, that this station would not be available on this other service until Saturday, March 20, 2021. Here we are, today, Saturday, March 20, and where is our favorite station on this streaming service. Returning to the original streaming service to discover if, “we’re back!” The results were that it was not there, but to search it, the station was found once again.

Technology and computers do not take a favorite station away from a listener. It’s humans, stupid. It’s humans, stupid, to do such a thing as this which is comparable to Castro (maybe Hitler book burning, too?) removing happiness of the people and pushing American citizens into a corner of helplessness in the process.

People have more important things to do with their lives than to try to work through such obstacles. With warmer weather here, perhaps we would like to do some outdoor gardening or cleaning up lawns after the snow goes away. Removing our happiness so as to push us into a corner and spend more time trying to solve the problems resulting from hackers. Repeat. Computers don’t just do this kind of crap alone. It takes humans, stupid.

We hear about nations such from South Korea to Taiwan to New Zealand to those on continental Europe where the Internet is not like what is being described here. Do they spend time with Trumpicans fighting with good people. Same thing here. People being pushed into a corner with technological crap of hackers and not having time to work with the things which are best for our lives. Why does the states like New York or Florida or the Federal government providing as good an Internet service as the other democratic capitalist nations provide? WHY? Those nations also have political parties which iron out differences, too. But what the Trumpicans are doing to control the Republican Party and gain a foothold in pushing for a dictatorship is disgusting, as they marginalize voters so they won’t vote and suppress many other voters so they CANNOT vote.

These people are vicious barbarians who cannot win elections unless they carve out voting districts by way of GERRYMANDERING. Gerrymandering has been around for a long time. But at least many states, even with gerrymandering, had a two-party system. Right now, Florida has a one-party state of Republican and has never had a Democratic Party governor since before 1998. The gerrymandering has done that.

Go ahead and say, “well New York State is the same.” BULLSHIT. George Pataki was NOT a Democrat, so at least there were a number of years when it went back and forth between Democrat and Republican. There was a day when Senator Warren Anderson of Binghamton headed the MAJORITY of Republicans in the New York State Senate and TYPICALLY, the Assembly was Democrat. Two-party system with more compromise than what there is today.

(1) we rid this nation of gerrymandering
(2) we rid this nation of voter suppression
(3) we stop the marginalizing of voters by Trumpican dictatorial people
(4) stop the (please excuse the frustration and the resulting language) BULLSHIT of lies and coverups done by Trumpicans who hold people’s feet to the fire with retribution if they don’t follow the DICTATOR Trump (and Roger Stone and others)
(5) abolish the Electoral College and replace it with two voting times, one with all parties and the second one between the top two recipients of votes
(6) create capitalist competition through government regulation for the sake of SUPPLY AND DEMAND
(7) acknowledge the role which long term, not just egotistical short term, investments mean and encourage pooled lower-risk investments without a cap on percentage invested so wealthy bastards pay less into FICA (Social Security) and Medicare for all, due to LONG TERM investments in a CAPITALIST system; damn it all, don’t close your minds to what some of us are saying
(8) return to a two or more party system with STATES PEOPLE who are rational enough, on ALL sides, to know how to find common ground and lead this nation
(9) abolish PACs and lobbyists from Congress and government, and stop the trash of people with too much control over our legislators. The PEOPLE should speak, not the damn lobbyists and put Congress on the SAME THING the rest of the nation has for Social Security and Medicare (I said, FOR ALL)
(10) Reform the tax system so as to rid the paper shuffling number crunching business of tax accountants and lawyers, which TAKES AWAY from the productivity for REAL things for America, its economy and its people; sales tax and businesses have to hire people and it cuts into the overhead for the small self-employed business person; income taxes the same consideration as it is a regressive one penalizing Americans from making money or PROFIT (which is called “disposable income” – BULLSHIT ON THAT to those who mock those of us pointing this BULLSHIT out); there was a day when conservatives promoted the value added tax because it was a tax added as a value to every product and this did not mean small business has to account for it and cut into their profit margins; today, there is NO DAMN CONSERVATIVE who promotes this, so I say, you damn bastards are NOT conservatives, you are dictatorial neo-cons.

Wrapping this entire discussion together and we end up realizing that the FCC does a lousy job in regulating media and the Internet because they do it to favor their OWN industry, rather than have THIRD PARTY people who look on and regulate in line with CAPITALIST DEMAND AND SUPPLY. The consumer. As with Castro “jamming” signals for Castro’s benefit only, here we are with a return to the discussion about technology. It’s human hackers “jamming” demand-side access, stupid, not technology.
