Ruffled feathers? Or Melting Snowflake?

If you're on Social Media, you're going to make your opinions known.
You'll step on toes, ruffle feathers, melt a snowflake or two.  It's Orwellian:  Tell the truth, get berated!

Today, in a group, someone wanted to know how to remove a Confederate Battle Flag from folks an app was showing  as ancestors when the pictures are not on your own tree.  Short answer:  You DON'T.

The conversation went like this.  (Edited to remove names)

On the app a few of my ancestors are listed with Confederate flag symbols. These are not on my tree. Does anyone know a way to remove them?
My Reply
If they aren't on your tree, I'd say it's NOYB if they are there or not

You cannot remove something from someone else's tree. If you think you can find them, and then ask them to remove it, you're certainly welcome to try, but I think you'd get blocked. (Just my opinion)
"Southern Pride" is a real thing. And so is history. History won't change, regardless of how one tries to "Sanitize" it.

And the person's reply:

 I was asking how I can change it on my side and nothing else. I never asked for your political viewpoint

Who to believe?

As most folks in the US are probably well aware, there is a confirmation battle going on in Congress, for the spot vacated by Anthony Kennedy-- on the Supreme Court.

Recently, "Christine Ford" accused Judge Bret Kavanaugh of sexual assault.  These kinds of accusations always seem to follow candidates -- IF they're Republican.  They don't seem to matter at all if you're a Democrat. 

I've tried to piece this together.  And I've reached the conclusion that Kavanaugh is telling the truth. 


First:  The Democrats were bitching about Gorsuch, but didn't really have time to do anything.  They did try to stop the confirmation, but since the GOP has the advantage in the Senate, even if one vote of theirs flips, the VP steps in and votes.  A brilliant idea from our Founders, if you ask me.
Then, Kennedy resigned.

Second:  The Democrats were coming out against the nominee even before he was announced.  That reeks of politics, jealousy.  These sore losers are all part of the #nevetrump movement which is really out of control.  Signs were made for those who'd protest, even BEFORE announced!  That strikes me as ODD.

Third:  Despite the Constitution and Rule of Law, everybody started ganging up on the Judge!

Fourth:  The hearings were over, when "All of a sudden" somebody accused him of sexual assault. 
Very convenient that it comes just a day or two before the vote.  And now, the Democrats are not only calling for him to withdraw from the nomination, but to resign.  Interesting.  Not a single shred of proof.  I thought we were supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.  Not for the DFL.  It's Presumed Guilty unless you're a democrat!

Fifth:  Ford had 4 people named as witnesses.  In an interesting development, not a single one has corroborated her story.  One did, but then recanted.  Nice.  No witnesses. 

Sixth:  Feinstein held the so-called "Letter of accusation" until just a couple of days before the vote.  WHY?  There can be only one reason:  To disrupt the courts, to fuel the opposition, to delay the vote until after the midterms.  What happens if the Democrats win?  It's not going to be a very big margin, if you ask me-  If they win at all.  If they lose, it's just going to be the same circus all over again.

7th:  Kavanaugh had to undergo several background checks before he was nominated as Judge.  A few of the Democrats (at that time) supported him.  2 or three, I think it was.  The FBI background checks came back clear.

8th:  When Kavanaugh was nominated to be judge, which was under Bush, he had to undergo hearings.  And guess what.  Ford was NOWHERE to be seen.  Why didn't she accuse him THEN?
Obviously, it's because Trump wasn't President. 

9th:  Now, a Creepy Porn-star lawyer who is delinquent in his taxes and under order to pay, claims there is "ANOTHER" person ...  Yeah, right.

10th:  The GOP offered to hear the testimony of Ford.  She puts it some very strange stipulations... Judge Kavanaugh cannot be in the room, for one thing.  No lawyers may question.  Blah, Blah, Blah.

11th:  She then demands a delay because "She's afraid to fly."  Next thing I hear, she's in Delaware, just a few hours after this statement.

WILL SHE EVEN SHOW UP?  I don't know.  But I'm guessing she won't.  She's scared, because she'll be under oath.  If caught in a lie, lying to Congress is perjury.  What's the penalty? One to Five years.  Plus fines.  Not showing up is Contempt, and that's a criminal offense, as well.  Up to 1 year in prison, and up to 1000 for a fine.  Nice.

Of course, the Democrats won't vote to hold her in contempt, if such does happen.  And they'll claim it's the "Anti-woman" agenda of the GOP.  What a crock.

After looking at all this, I have only one conclusion:  Ford's Lying and the Democrats are trying to delay the game.  If more than one Republican votes no, Game over. 

Time to end the bullshit.  Call the vote.  And when confirmation occurs, Have him in place by the start of the session.

FORD is a LIAR.  DEMOCRATS Delaying the game.  Nobody seems to have the balls enough to stand up and call for the vote. 

AS I SEE IT.....

Do you suppose they'll read this the way I intend?

I received an ad for a "Service contract" on an A/C unit.  But these folks (Who shall remain anonymous) know that we don't have a working unit.  They KNOW we were turned down for a chance at replacing it.  THEY KNOW.

I penned this very carefully worded letter.  I was very precise in my words. 

Thank you for offering your service maintenance contract to me.

However, do you not think that it would be more practical to offer such a service
to someone who actually has a working system?

Your agent was out here some time ago, and determined that our unit was irreparable.
We were declined for financial aid, and went on to a couple of other places for the loan, and had the same result each time. Therefore, we have been unable to replace our unit at all, and remain in a very uncomfortable situation until temps come down to a more tolerable level.

Therefore, for your financial well-being and a more tolerable misery level for us,
Please remove my name from your advertising until further notice. Unless we can get a working system, that could be quite some time.

IF, however, you care to see if you can actually fix this beast of a nonworking system, you are free to call to try to arrange a time and date. Be informed that I cannot continue to shell out $100.00 per service call which lasts only 1 or 2 minutes.

While I appreciate the offer, it is prodigal for both of us at this time, and even more so for me.

So, I once again request that you remove my name from your advertising ASAP, and until further notice.

Thank you.


This whole thing, if read aloud, is to be tinged with sarcasm.

Are you REALLY?

Twitter is a fun place for many.  Unfortunately, conservatives get shadow-banned, suspended for truth, while the leftists can spew hate all over and never get a warning.

Today, however, I saw a tweet which was supposedly sent by .
Honestly, I think the account is fake, even with the verified check mark.
WHY?  Take a look.

I do'nt care what Kids at School call me because they are all Disgusting Fake Losers and my Real Friends go to a diffrent Scool you haven't heard of and they think Im the Coolest and Smartest and we go to parties and I don't have to tell you there Names for this to be True. This has a list of grammatical errors that an author, especially one of Rowling's stature, simply would not make. 1) Second word. Do'nt (sic) 2) Fifth word. Incorrect capitalization. 3) Seventh word. Incorrect capitalization. 4) 14th, 15th, 16th words. Incorrect capitalization. 5) 19th and 20th words. Incorrect capitalization. 6) 24th word. Boy, that's "diffrent." (sic) 7) 25th word. Incorrect capitalization and I think this person needs "Scool." (sic) 8) 33rd word. Forgot the apostrophe. 9) 35th and 37th words. Incorrect capitalization. 10) 50th word. Wrong word. Unbelievable. An author should know the difference between there, they're, and their. 11) 51st word. Incorrect capitalization. 12) 56th word. Incorrect capitalization. That's a total of 18 errors, right there. (Remember, some of my points show more than one error, so 12 points show 18. Now, let's talk about run-on sentences. I have trouble with commas, and I suspect that most people do. But this "sentence" (Tweet) is totally incoherent. And it's mentioned that her "real friends go to a diffrent scool." She's in school? Elementary, maybe. This is one reason I suspect it's a fake account. The awkward construction of the sentence is also a tip-off. NOPE. I'm pretty sure you aren't who you say, .
Either that, or you've been hacked.

If you weren't hacked, you are truly an idiot... AS I SEE IT!
