I did not vote for Hillary and do not support her. You however continue to support Trump and his campaign. thats the difference.

Did you check out this video of the CEO of Cambridge talking about their techniques? this is the company That the Trump campaign paid 5 million dollars for their services. How you can support this is beyond my comprehension.

check out the link

PaulE 927am - I have already explained beyond patience our totally different systems of logic and world views (ontologies). What does paying $5M, or any sum, for legitimate services have to do with anything???

And anyone just arrived from Mars (or any other objective examiner) looking at the years of your comments would definitely conclude that you have been and are one of Hillary's most constant supporters, and one who continues, out of hand, to dun anything that is inimical to her reputation.

Paul Emery, nothing illegal took place. In fact here is a copy/paste from George Boardman's blog on the very issue. Read it then go back to your cave.

"Facebook executives spent much of Saturday arguing what happened didn’t constitute a data breach, even as they acknowledge Cambridge and others used data that was provided openly to third parties.

That would include the 2012 reelection campaign of President Barack Obama, which created a voter-outreach app that plugged into the Facebook platform to find potential supporters among a user’s friends."

Being opposed to Trump does not mean I am a Hillary supporter. I have often condemned the "pay to play " scheme she ran with her punk husband.

Show me ONE time I said something good about Hillary. Just one.

Disappointed that you didn't look further in Cambridge. More later.

,,,paul,,,georger is assuming that trumpski's organization paid for '''legitimate services'''. trumpski's organization wouldn't care if they were legitimate as long as they could claim ignorance,,,

'''It was Bannon’s interest in culture as war that ignited Wylie’s intellectual concept. But it was Robert Mercer’s millions that created a firestorm. Kogan was able to throw money at the hard problem of acquiring personal data: he advertised for people who were willing to be paid to take a personality quiz on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk and Qualtrics. At the end of which Kogan’s app, called thisismydigitallife, gave him permission to access their Facebook profiles. And not just theirs, but their friends’ too. On average, each “seeder” – the people who had taken the personality test, around 320,000 in total – unwittingly gave access to at least 160 other people’s profiles, none of whom would have known or had reason to suspect.

What the email correspondence between Cambridge Analytica employees and Kogan shows is that Kogan had collected millions of profiles in a matter of weeks. But neither Wylie nor anyone else at Cambridge Analytica had checked that it was legal. It certainly wasn’t authorised. Kogan did have permission to pull Facebook data, but for academic purposes only. What’s more, under British data protection laws, it’s illegal for personal data to be sold to a third party without consent.

“Facebook could see it was happening,” says Wylie. “Their security protocols were triggered because Kogan’s apps were pulling this enormous amount of data, but apparently Kogan told them it was for academic use. So they were like, ‘Fine’.”'''

Paul Emery, we figured out your hypocrisy long ago. You can stop with the explanations.

Fake news strikes again. When the Austin bombings first started, CNN said two of the three victims were black and the third person was Hispanic. CNN went so far as to say that it's a hate crime and if the bombings happened in a white affluent area of Austin, the place would be crawling with cops to solve this hate crime. For the record, the first two victims were not black but white

Walt

LOL!! Dung,, I guess you didn't read the FB disclaimer and "rules of use" before you clicked "agree". (GOD what an idiot)...

Walt

Looks like Zuck,, is about to get Zucked.
"The three social media companies testified in Washington last fall, following the revelation that their platforms had been used by foreign agents seeking to illegally influence the US presidential election. All three companies sent their general counsels, a move that was criticized at the time. It is unlikely that Zuckerberg will be able to avoid congressional questioning a second time.

Experts have long criticized Facebook’s privacy practices, but their warnings have done little to dissuade users – now numbering more than 2 billion around the world – from signing up for the platform."

See that Dougy?? "Questionable privacy practices"
Facebook exists only to HARVEST PRIVATE INFO,, so they can SELL IT.

Have a newer car or truck? You DO realize there is a "black box" in it? Get in a wreck, it can be used against you.
Every time I got a newer buggy, that thing was/is the first to get ripped out by the wires.

,,,going back to what georger said in the latest '''full''' sandbox,,,let's say the '''not cons''' admit to agreeing with every accusation '''not libs''' keep tossing out there about what they hate about and supposed crimes committed by obama,,,hillary,,,pelosi,,,and whatever else the think notcons should be held accountable for,,,

allrightythen,,,all that obama stuff is in the past,,,done

so,,,now,,,present day,,,not living in the past anymore,,, what are the notlibs going to to about the exact same '''crimes and injustices''' they have been complaining about now that their ilk are doing even more of the same things???!!!

notcons have been pointing out,,,hey WTF about this,,,that and the other thing pubbers are doing that you were so upset about when barryfrostyos,,,or whatever scapegoat you trot out did in the past??? i thought you guys were supposed to be better than the notcons!!!

but when confronted with that truth all the notlibs do is point out something lame like '''obama did it first'''

notlibs have control of much of the government yet they bumble around like keystone cops!!!

why don't notlibs start by impeaching trumpski to show they are better than the notcons!!!

not going to happen,,,

pennsylvania pubbers are whining to scotus to keep their lame gerrymandered districts intact until after the election,,,

gop pubbers won't get in the way of firing mueller,,,

trumpski is hiring economic advisors and lawyers off of TV shows,,,

and all the torrets tilapia can say is '''still president''' and make a potty joke,,,

obeehave 1047am - You really have to take off those blinders. Covering the transgressions of past administrations and Congresses is a long-established American pastime and substantive foundations of debate. RR has existed during the entire Obama administrations, and the defenders of his many transgressions did nothing save citing their interpretations of what happened during the Reagan, Bush1, and Bush2 administrations - it is all here. And now you want to change the rules??!

Ignorance of history or cynicism, your pick.

"The 20 points up for Hillary was from Silvers odds based on if the election were held today. It's compared to last week. Follow the link and you'll agree with me."
So your saying Clinton would win... Right?

PRO Hillary if you ask me...
"Should have read will know next week what kind of bounce Hillary will be getting from trumps terrible debate performance Waste recognition has lots of flaws and it's hard to edit this stuff Nice chatting with you Russ"

Humm.. How bout this from Paul.
Johnson was a Repub when he ran for Governor of New Mexico but saw the light and quit in 2011 because the Repubs did not in any way support Libertarian values.

Trump is an entertainer who is acting the role of a politician. Hillary is a hard core professional politician.

And many more.
Be careful of what you wish for Paul.

The ONLY reason you claim to have voted Johnson was he was pro DOPE.

Bill Tozer

Bad ICE, bad. No wonder Gaven called the head of ICE a prick. Such language. My virgin ears have been defiled....again.

“In each instance, the Border Patrol Agent determined it was not appropriate, consistent with his or her federal responsibilities to ensure the enforcement of immigration law, to release a criminal alien to the state and local law enforcement,” Scott said in a court declaration. “This was because, although the alien was subject to removal, if released to California law enforcement, the alien would ultimately be released into the public.”

Trump needs to implement the Insurrection Act
The Insurrection Act of 1807 is a United States federal law (10 U.S.C. §§ 251–255) that governs the ability of the President of the United States to deploy military troops within the United States to put down lawlessness, insurrection, and rebellion.

That should get Calif. attention.
Jail Brown and most of those under the dome in Sac.

Bill Tozer

Walt, Punchy never supported Hillary. He just trashed relentlessly her opponent. Big difference in his mind.

First we were treated to a bad case of Bush Derangement Syndrome. During the long destructive eight years of the Omaha Presidency, all we heard was nothing but BDS. Ok, Punchy once got hot under the collar about Nevada County regulating big house parties with live music. Besides that and some minisule yawners in the grand scheme of things, it was eight straight years of BDS.
“I can assume George that you agree with me that Bush lied and people died! Good to have reached agreement here......blah, blah, blah.”

Now we have a fine example of TDS to enjoy daily. I rather enjoy reading the daily slobbering of those with TDS, an affliction like COPD. It’s progressive and irreversible. It’s just keeps getting better and better. Like that funny DC councilmen who just said Jews control the weather, ROFLMAO. Don’t tell me, he supports the Women’s March as well.
Enjoy the senile old Uncle Paulie rambling on at the Thanksgiving Dinner, drooling on the food and bits of tasty morsels spewing out over everything when he speaks. It’s rather amusing and intriguing to watch. Just stand back and enjoy. It’s quite the phenomena unfolding before our eyes.

Paul Emery

I profoundly dislike Trump Bill, didn't vote for Hillary or Obama 2nd time around, Thought Bush was a disaster, Clinton was a sleazy punk and should have resigned, (didn't vote for him) Bush the first was a CIA gangster. How far back do I have to go. Out so called two party system is a total disaster as I have claimed for years. Reagan was an actor, Carter was incompetant, Nixon was a crook......

Bill Tozer

Collusion:

Bryon York and Andrew McCarthy have been writing good articles lately, York daily.

“Both Gates and Manafort were charged with something called "conspiracy against the United States." As the former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy points out, "there is no such offense in federal law as 'conspiracy against the United States.'" But Mueller's office described their alleged crimes that way, and some media commentators liked the treason-ish sound of the phrase.

But in the Mueller investigation, it is precisely the people who would most be expected to be part of a collusion scheme who have not been charged with taking part in any such activity.”

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/byron-york-if-mueller-didnt-charge-flynn-and-manafort-with-collusion-then-who-was-colluding

Paul Emery

Right Bill AndNixon was never charged with Breaking into the Watergate as well.

George Rebane

BillT 212pm - Good intro to ByronY's recent commentaries and appearances on FN Mr Tozer. The question remains for Mueller to answer, '... then who was colluding??' You can bet the farm that our leftwing friends here will be silent on the matter, as are their lamestream thought leaders. The witch hunt will continue until one is caught and burned.

Paul Emery

Too late for such a simple answer George. There are so many other suspected crimes that have been discovered and Grand Juries are going full steam. there are several guilty pleas so those are real and confessed crimes. Too late to save the Trumpster and things are on a downward spiral from here on out with a disaster predicted for the fall elections. The dems will likely win back the house and we all know where that leads. Even Republicans are predicting impeachment if Trump tries to out Mueller.

Gregory

Paul 207pm

Come off it, Paul... you were giddy with joy in the runup to the Nov '16 election... looking forward to Hillary's win demolishing conservatives in general and the GOP in particular. How did you put it... that the problem the community would have the next days and weeks after the inevitable crushing loss would be reintegrating conservatives/GOP into life after their dream was buried by the inevitability of a permanent loss of power.

Being a "green libertarian", a party of one, meant you could have your cake and eat it, too.

Walt

Paul forgets(again) that Nixon was hung by his OWN party.
"O" on the other hand was PROTECTED by his own party.
Nixon had nothing on "O's indiscretions.
Nixon is owed a HUGE apology.
Be careful of dissing Nixon Paul, he has close relatives here.
Their influence in the county still lives.

You claim to not back the LIBS,, yet you make every excuse for them..

Walt

LOL!! Listen to Paul. "Trump going down"
There is more dirt on "O"&Co. and all the broken laws by that admin than can ever be found on Trump.

Funny thing Paul,, you have YET to say just what laws have been broken by Trump.

Here is what collusion looks like for the oh so confused po' ol' fakenewmen-

But behind the scenes, the petro was in fact a collaboration—a half-hidden joint venture between Venezuelan and Russian officials and businessmen, whose aim was to erode the power of U.S. sanctions, sources familiar with the effort told TIME.

Give it a rest Archie. "O" and Co. did it for 8 years and Proggys said nothing. Forget it was "O''s admin that was out to unmask Americans all through out the election? How do you think they finally got caught? It sure wasn't Holder or Lynch giving dropping a dime on the op.

The REAL undue influence in our election was done by the LIBS.
The DOJ and FBI became political tools and the FICA court as well.... BY the LEFT.

Archie

“Is this what some are accusing Brennan of doing - spying on Americans? If that is such a big deal why did the House and Senate renew this a couple of months ago?”

Simple answer Mr. Bunker. The FISA court is deemed a necessary tool by those in the know. What the recent consternation over FISA is about is the ABUSE of FISA courts by unseemly corrupt shady characters.

I fought the law and the law won....despite great roadblocks.

So, more proof that the Democrat Party of CA supports robbers, gun crimes, wife beaters, drunk drivers like Ms. Hall, parole violators, drug dealers, hostage takers, and repent offenders.

“One was a Mexican national arrested for robbery and gun crimes, who was released back into the community for a prior offense despite an ICE detainer request in November.

Another Mexican national was arrested for a DUI, despite having been deported three times and prior convictions for false imprisonment, DUI and battery of a spouse.

The third was a Mexican national who was arrested for corporal injury of a spouse, despite being deported twice and criminal convictions including drug possession, hit-and-run, DUIs, possessions of narcotics equipment and a parole violation.”

Bribery one step removed and collusion to steal US secret tech -

Schweizer discussed national security implications related to modern corruption, highlighting the acquisition of Henniges Automotive — a formerly America-based company developing “dual-use” technologies with military applications — by Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), a Chinese state-run military contractor. AVIC acquired Henniges in 2017 with a 51 percent stake purchase. The remaining 49 percent was purchased by the Biden- and-Kerry-linked BHR.
“So [Hunter Biden and Devon Archer] get this $1.5 billion to invest, and what they are supposed to do is basically invest in companies that benefit the Chinese government,” stated Schweizer. “So just think about this for a second. This is the vice president of the United States whose father is supposed to be commanding American presence and power in the Pacific to deal with the rising challenge from China, and his son is investing $1.5 billion of Chinese government money. So what do they do? They invest in an American high-precision tools company called Henniges, which used to be owned by Rocket Company, but they produce anti-vibration technologies which have a dual-use application, so this transaction actually requires the approval of the federal government, as it has national security implications. So again, the vice president’s son is helping the Chinese government take over a dual-use military technology-related company called Henniges.”
BHR also invested in a Chinese state-run atomic energy company indicted by the Department of Justice in crimes related to stealing nuclear secrets, Schweizer said.
“But it gets even worse because another investment that they make is in something called CGN — China General Nuclear — which is an atomic power company,” recalled Schweizer. “They invest in this company in 2014. A year later, what happens? The FBI arrests and charges senior officials in this company with stealing nuclear secrets in the United States. Specifically, they’re trying to get access to something called the AP-1000 nuclear reactor that is very similar to the ones that we put on U.S. submarines. So again, you have the son of the vice president, a close aide to the secretary of state who are investing in a company that is trying to steal nuclear secrets in the United States. It’s a stunning story, and here’s the thing: none of this is required to be disclosed because they’ve figured out a way to get around these disclosure laws.”

Funny that after all the stalling and political posturing, Chucky the Clown ends up voting for them. “Armageddon, the end is nigh” with their words while voting for the nominee with their actions.

“Today, the Senate has had 79 cloture votes in the first 14 months of our administration. Seventeen, over the last four administrations, versus 79 in the first 14 months of our administration. That is roughly five times the number of the last four administrations combined,” Short said.

He accused Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) of “weaponizing a Senate procedure and demanding cloture votes on our nominees that he even eventually supports.”

You were celebrating Hillary's upcoming election. All over but the shouting.

You could taste the tears of tea partiers.

Instead, the Clintonista brigade cried in bed, for days, having woken up to discover that not only didn't get victory, it was finally reported to them that the Obama presidency saw a decimation of Democratic Party elected officials from coast to coast. All those dogcatchers are the lowest rung of political careers, and DEMs weren't winning like they used to.

Walt

Hummmmmm.. This sure doesn't sound like a definition of a Paul.
"Libertarianism (from Latin: libertas, meaning "freedom") is a collection of political philosophies and movements that uphold liberty as a core principle.[1] Libertarians seek to maximize political freedom and autonomy, emphasizing freedom of choice, voluntary association, and individual judgment.[2][3][4] Libertarians share a skepticism of authority and state power, but they diverge on the scope of their opposition to existing political and economic systems. Various schools of libertarian thought offer a range of views regarding the legitimate functions of state and private power, often calling for the restriction or dissolution of coercive social institutions.[5]

Left-libertarians, seek to abolish capitalism and private ownership of the means of production in favor of their common or cooperative ownership and management, viewing private property as a barrier to freedom and liberty.[6][7][8][9] In contrast, modern right-libertarian ideologies, such as minarchism and anarcho-capitalism, instead advocate laissez-faire capitalism and strong private property rights,[10] such as in land, infrastructure and natural resources."

In a May 2015 email thread, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta offered his condolences for the sudden death of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s husband, Dave Goldberg. Sandberg thanked Podesta for his kind words, then affirmed her desire to “help” Clinton win the 2016 election. She mentioned a home visit where Clinton interacted with her children. “I still want HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton] to win badly,” she wrote. “I am still here to help as I can. She came over and was magical with my kids.”

Tozer at 5 - Fake news, dude! The shooter was 17, so he couldn't have possessed a gun!
Some politician has already used the news of the latest bang bang to push for 'gun registration'. Well, duh. How else could we possibly know who the shooter is?
Oh, wait... oh, that's right, cause he's dead. Gun still in his hand.
But those smarties that know better than us deplorables know that if he had to register the gun he wouldn't have it because that would be against the law!

Topic: My Gal Friday. If you think she should just go away, you don’t know My Gal. They had to roll her up in the carpet and carry her out when the Clinton’s left the White House. You can still see the claw marks on the hardwood floors. She will never give up, which makes me smile all the more watching her unravel. “I’m melting, I’m melting......”

The Naysayers:

“I don’t think that’s the way you should talk about any voter, especially ones in my state.” —Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) on Hillary Clinton’s attack on women voters

“[Hillary] should go away. … She is not helping the Democratic Party.” —former Obama State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf

“Look, this was bad. I can’t sugarcoat it.” —Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle

“I have all the respect in the world for her, but … [the] rest of us are gonna focus on the future.” —Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager Robby Mook

And last… “In 1992, when Bill Clinton was running for president, he went on ‘60 Minutes’ to answer allegations of extramarital wrongdoing. His wife appeared with him and backed him up. ‘I’m not sitting here some little woman standing by my man like Tammy Wynette,’ Hillary Clinton said that day. ‘I’m sitting here because I love him and I respect him.’ She resented the insinuation that she lacked the agency to make a political decision in her own best interest. Women who voted for Trump resent it when Clinton makes the same insinuation about them.” —Jeff Jacoby

In the "nope, the pee tapes aren't real" or "Putin ain't got nuttin on me" dept. Despite explicit instructions in all caps in the President' daily briefing stating DO NOT CONGRATULATE Putin on his "re-election," Donald the Dealmaker called up Putin and congratulated him anyhow insulting millions of people worldwide. The purpose of the call was to discuss the Korean situation and trump was supposed to bring up both Russian meddling in the 2016 elections and the poisoning of the ex-Rusian spy via a nerve agent last month. Trumpski did neither but instead talked with Putin about "the state of bilateral relations and resolved to continue dialogue about mutual national security priorities and challenges.”

Oh no, Trump did not follow the rules! What are we ever to do?

Hey Bobbie, maybe Trump should call up lit-o-rocketman and start trashing the FUK (Fat Ugly Kid) about his human rights abuses and his release of our citizen as a walking corpse with his mind gone. Then Trump should lay into the Saudis and save the best for Putin. How dare he. Unless Putin behaves and throws down all his toys, we will never ever talk to Russia again.

Right. Human right abuses, LGBTQQ, and setting up democracies in totalarain countries with dictators for life are not the top priorities in geo-political stuff. Shame on Trump. Hey, he is so crazy he might fire Meuller tonight.

This is so weird. All my life the left loved Russia. From Russia with Love. Bernie honeymooning back, back, back in the USSR and all the good exciting stuff.

Once the Wall came done, it changed everything. Guess the Left (especially those elitist university professors here and abroad) never forgave Russia for dumping communism. After that fiasco, the Left had to switch gears and go with the Anti-Colonial song and dance...which explains the Politics of Identity.

Besides, Trump owes Vladdy one. A big nice thankyou is in order. As much as I really hate to admit it, it was Russia that gets more credit than us for putting the hurts on ISIS, be they be hiding in mosques or hospitals. Russian fighters have no problem with that.

One year ago Breitbart had 250 sponsors. Today, following boycotts of Breitbart advertisers, there are only 17 left.

George Boardman

Congratulation, boys. A Nazi is the Republican candidate in an Illinois congressional district.

Meanwhile, I wonder how Fox is going to spin this one:

Good morning jon. If boycotts don’t work, keep trying.

“The newest figures from Amazon-owned website ranking system Alexa have shown that Breitbart News has beaten competitors the Washington Post and the Huffington Post in popularity in the U.S. According to Alexa, Breitbart News is now the 54th most popular website in the United States. The Washington Post, by comparison, sits as the 61st most popular website, while the Huffington Post is the 78th most popular.” 03/02/2018.

Breitbart is dropping like a rock. According to recent Alexa data (11/08/17) Breitbart News has beaten the Washington Post in the U.S. traffic rankings. Breitbart News is now the 48th most visited website in the entire United States, while the Washington Post is now the 50th most visited website.

Hmm, fell from 48 to 54 in US ranking. Sinking like a rock in conjuction with the Wa Compost and the lowly Huff-n-Puff Farting Post. Separated at birth?

Walt

Mzzz."jon" And how is your own web site ranked? Yours doing better?

The Lefty Scooper went boobs up. The day it went Lefty fake news was the beginning of the end.
( It's "pro" Klan piece didn't help one bit)

jon smith

According to Alexa?? Must have been some old browser history you failed to purge. As of today Alexa shows Breitbart down to 274. What matters is advertising dollars not clicks and that is what my boycott post was about.

George Boardman

Hey Walt, I'm going to quit bugging you about hey/hay. If Trump doesn't know the difference between council/counsel, why should I get on your case?

Walt

As usual, CNN gives an anti gun kid all the airtime it can,,,
BUT
The Pro gun kid from the same school. "Forget about it".
http://dailycaller.com/2018/03/21/cnn-kyle-kashuv-interview/
"Kashuv has separated himself from the rest of the Parkland student advocates in his strong support for the Second Amendment and alternative safety proposals beside gun control or the banning of specific types of weapons.

In a tweet Wednesday morning, Kashuv accused CNN of canceling his appearance because he linked an article that was critical of Baldwin, along with saying that he was excited to appear on her show."

CNN lives up to,, "the least trusted name in news".

Todd Juvinall

Jom/Linda uses a Politico story to bash Breitbart. What a hoot! And of course how is it that a proprietary thing like advertisers is known by Jon/linda. Where is that link?

The left tried to boycott Rush Limbaugh a few years ago when he accurately described that babe that wanted us to pay for her condoms. It failed as the supporters doubled down and protected him. And he signed a 400 million dollar contract extension as well.

Boardman, are you supporting th NAZI in Illinois? I know we aren't so why bring it up? I have yet to see you joyously dissing Barbara Lee the ony Communist in Congress.

George Rebane

And here all along we thought a website's influence was linked to its viewing eyeballs that vote, instead of its advertising dollars, not one of which can enter the voting booth.

George Boardman

Hey Walt, the nannies in the Trump administration want to take so much nicotine out of your cigarettes they won't be addictive anymore. I hope your guns are locked up when you go through withdrawal.

Todd Juvinall

Walt, I think GB is hitting the liquor cabinet hard again. LOL!

George Boardman

Todd, why would 20,000 Republicans vote for this guy?
https://thinkprogress.org/20000-illinois-republicans-voted-for-nazi-7bbeeb7631fd/

Walt

Yup, I gave it up a year ago The smell of gun power replaced it.
The cost of a pack of cigs was more than a box of .22 shells.
I could reload 100 rounds of .308 for the cost of a carton of cigs.
(powder, primers, .165 grain boat tails)
Trigger time is a fun addiction.

Walt

George. How many millions voted for the Muslim? ( You know,, "O"!)
Even Paul voted for him..(at least once) You?

George Boardman

Walt, only people untethered from reality believe Obama was a Muslim.

Meanwhile, my favorite congressman is at it again:

....., why would 20,000 Republicans vote for this guy?


Wonder if it’s for similar reasons that the Congressional Black Caucus falls all over itself to kiss Farrakhans ring?

Really George this is bitchier than we’ve come to expect from you.

March Madness bets go south?

Bill Tozer

To quote (from memory) Mark Twain, “I have quit.....hundreds of times”. Best have jon fact check that for us.

They (whoever they are) say kicking the nicotine habit is harder than kicking heroin.
Get this: I read a study of the harmful effects of 2nd hand smoke....from pot, lol. To be fair, the study was too small with no visible control group in the findings so I did not post it here. With that said, you just got a peek into the future. As more people quit smoking tobacco, they (whoever they are) will be gunning for wacky tobaccy to replace the tax revenue lost to the quitters. They do say a quitter never wins......

Antidotal story, about 12 years ago:

Was in Santa Cruz visiting an old buddy. We went to a park. He pointed to the bar-b-que pits, similar to the ones in Memorial or Condon parks. Told me they banned smoking cigs, bar-b-ques, and even the Boy Scout campouts with the ole sitting around the campfire because of smoke pollution. No mas. While in Santa Cruz, the local paper’s front page article was about the upcoming huge crowd expected at the same park for the Great All America Pot Smokeout.

The city council wrote up a quick exception for dope smokers cause nobody wanted to deprive the lame, disabled, and granny from their medicine, The ban on the upcoming 4th of July fireworks was to remain in effect, due to smoke pollution and scaring the sea lions. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em.....as long as “‘em” is the wacky tobaccy plant.

Walt

You don't know when to quit... Do you Boardman?
Cesar Chavez? You were around when he was thumping illegals for taking farm jobs from LEGAL immigrants. Even I remember that.

Protect "O" all you like. ( and just who's funeral did "O" avoid like the plague? )
Romney's dog was only on a car roof. "O" ate fido.
"O" praised the Muslim Bro hood. "O" is the Father of ISIS

Did you miss the sale of "O"'s prayer rug on Ebay?

George Boardman

Walt, if a conservative ever lands a late night TV gig, I'm going to nominate you for head comedy writer.

Todd Juvinall

It is my experience that voters sometimes never pay attention to who or what they are voting for. I would suggest you go interview some of those who voted for that scumbag and then get back to the thread. Otherwise, FISH is right and the CBC loves Farrakhan an avowed racist and anti-semitic holocaust denier. Let's see you write about that GeorgeB.

I suspect there is not one person nere that would ever support a NAZI. But you can find many on other blogs, even you and tours that support a Barbara Lee.

Walt

Yaa yaaa,,, Ya......

In the "we only like the rule of law when it rules in our favor" dept. Pennsylvania Republicans are tying to impeach four democratic state Supreme Court judges after they ruled (5-2) that the Republican controlled legislature gerrymandered the states districts in their favor and the districts had to be redrawn by the next election. After a legislative stalemate, the state Supreme Court redrew the districts and the Republicans sought to have the new map nullified. After two Republican appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court and a federal lawsuit were unsuccessful in blocking the new map, the Republicans decided to get rid of those darn judges.

Re Todd's 11:44:

So Republicans are just mindless automatons who will vote for anybody who has an "R" after his name? No wonder you guys nominate people like Roy Moore.

In other news, Trump has set a fine example for Junior, who apparently is dumping his wife for a rock singer. He was probably inspired by his father dumping Ivana for Marla.

Like father like son.

Bill Tozer

Them Trumps get all the hotties. Some guys have all the luck. Others are stuck with Hillary.

Gerrymandering is so crude.....far better to just import the third world to vote democrat.

Walt

Hey Bob.. It's fine when Leftys redraw things to maintain power... Right? Guess you forgot how it went here in Ca.

Then there is the protectionism from the bench. LIB judges, protecting LIB interests. Nothing new.

Districts CAN be redrawn... Just by Proggys... Right?

Walt

OH.... One more thing about judges...I bet there are a few that would side with illegals having the right to vote.

When Obama Used Facebook, it was OK, Not When Trump Used Facebook.

The problem with Facebook and Cambridge Analitica is that the Democrats are upset that Facebook, which the Democrats considered their exclusive tool, was allowed to be used by Trump. The press was not shocked when Obama had an office in his campaign organization filled with former Facebookers and Facebooker's on leave from Facebook in the Chicago office with access to all accounts.

For a campaign dependent on a big youth turnout, this could have been a crisis. But the Obama team had a solution in place: a Facebook application that will transform the way campaigns are conducted in the future. For supporters, the app appeared to be just another way to digitally connect to the campaign. But to the Windy City number crunchers, it was a game changer. “I think this will wind up being the most groundbreaking piece of technology developed for this campaign,” says Teddy Goff, the Obama campaign’s digital director.

That’s because the more than 1 million Obama backers who signed up for the app gave the campaign permission to look at their Facebook friend lists. In an instant, the campaign had a way to see the hidden young voters. Roughly 85% of those without a listed phone number could be found in the uploaded friend lists. What’s more, Facebook offered an ideal way to reach them. “People don’t trust campaigns. They don’t even trust media organizations,” says Goff. “Who do they trust? Their friends.”

http://swampland.time.com/2012/11/20/friended-how-the-obama-campaign-connected-with-young-voters/

Cambridge Analitica had less access than Obama's team, but no one is upset about the Democrats access to Facebook accounts, it was deemed brilliant at the time. After the election, Obama Campaign Manager was crowing about how they used big data to win. Facebook's big data. The press and Democrats only got upset when Trump gained access to the Facebook data which they considered the property of Democrats since Facebook "was on our side."

Here is the information you need to delete your Facebook account:

Well, I knew the Austin Bomber was an amateur. Ain’t no Teddy Kazenski for sure. So far all we know about him was a blog he did at the City College as a term paper in some Gov’t class 6 years ago. Didn’t see anything outlandish there in terms of the foaming at the mouth ranting and raving like libs do.
24 years old. From Gobberville, Tex. Oh my. The press is falling all over themselves to out tabloid the British tabloids. Too funny. Never too early to do feed the Christians to the lions, eh jon? Boy, he is one conservative, no doubt.

“While attending ACC in 2012, he maintained a blog called "Defining My Stance" for a government class. In his bio, he said he viewed himself as a conservative, but didn't think he had "enough information to defend my stance as well as it should be defended."

"The reasons I am taking this class is because I want to understand the US government, and I hope that it will help me clarify my stance, and then defend it," the bio read.
In a series of posts between February and May of 2012, Conditt criticized homosexuality as "not natural" and expounded on efforts to lessen internet piracy. He advocated for the death penalty and against sex-offender registries. In his second blog, dated Feb. 24, 2012, he mused on whether to release a captured al-Qaeda terrorist.
"I think that it is just plain dumb to release a terrorist," Conditt wrote, "much less a senior one — no matter what."

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2018/03/21/mark-conditt-know-austin-bombing-suspect

Funny, I don’t remember the press foaming at the mouth ranting and raving over that AR-15 that was used to shoot up the Christmas Party in San Bernardino. Did they ever find the shooters’ motives? Last I heard it was bullying at work that caused the workplace violence......

Wonder if Ted Kazenski’s motive was in his manuscript. Ah, yes it is. Social media and fake news.

Sure whatever. And you and your lk relect Brbara Lee nd actually make her your Congresswoman year after year. A communist! So are you and yours brainless too?

George Boardman

Barbara Lee was never my representative in congress. Who besides you thinks she's a communist?

Todd Juvinall

She is a self-described communist. Where have you been for twenty-five years? And the guy in Indiana has never been my rep so your premise is crap.
