Desktop Now Deceased

(Image from Schuyler House)

Last week, my desk top, a 10 year old HP, began locking up.  Since I was on duty, I didn't have the time to deal with it other than attempt to go through on-line tutorials to figure out what was wrong.

Then one morning when I turned it on, the screen displayed the Mircosoft icon and the words:  Preparing Automatic Repair.

And it remained in this state.

Once again, I attempted another on-line tutorial fix, but to no avail.

So I took it to a nearby computer repair shop.  A couple hours later, my desktop was declared DOA.

Two capacitors on the motherboard were fried, and since the system was originally designed for Windows Vista, it wasn't worth replacing.

I'm also having some issues with my laptop:  The media player won't play, and the power receptacle seems loose.

Meanwhile, I can't manage to get my iPad Pro to do what I've had my succession of laptops, and desktops to do.

So the long delays between blogposts will be longer I'm afraid, as I embark on a quest to replace my desktop.

San Franshithole

Last week, the San Francisco Politburo voted to allow non-citizens, even illegal aliens to vote in school board elections.

Three minutes into Dave Cullens' How Is This A Thing (21 July 2018), he points out that once again that leftists fail to understand that illegal immigration--is illegal.

But being a sanctuary city is just one problem the City By the Bay is experiencing.

Paul Joseph Watson went one step further than Dave Cullen, and declared San Francisco is a shithole.

City By the Cesspool?

San Franshitole?

Not the kind of names that will attract tourists, to be sure, but no amount of whitewashing can cover up what's now common knowledge--or the smell.

Trump Counter-Tweets Iranians

A couple days ago, Our Grand Nagus tweeted an all-cap warning to Iran for threatening America.

And of course, leftists claimed Trump was going to start a war--again.

I guess this shouldn't be surprising, since most Dimocrats consider Trump the Usurper a traitor.

Maxipad Waters called for protests in front of the White House if the Barechested Czar shows up for this fall's summit meeting.

I like what Brittany Hughes said near the end of her latest Reality Check video:  I would take a president who posts dumb tweets in favor of America over a president that actively conspires against it.

(Especially since I never heard about Barry O circumventing US financial laws to help Iranians get cash).

While Liz Wheeler simply thought the tweet was awesome, while expressing her disgust at Democrats for defending Iran.

Then again, they've been defending MS-13 gangbangers, so again, I'm not surprised.

Leftist Meltdowns Over 's Nomination to SCOTUS

(Image by Michael Ramirez)
There's a lot going on inside and outside the Ramparts of Civilization.

But the biggest freak show has been watching the batshit-crazy meltdowns of the Democrats, and their snowflake minions ever since Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court of the US (SCOTUS).

Leftists, like the Women's March group were prepared to hate anyone Our Grand Nagus nominated--no matter who they were.  They were so triggered to publish their condemnation when the nomination was announced on Monday--they forgot to remove the "XX" place-holder in their canned message.

In short, Derek Hunter observed leftists cranked-up the Outrage-O-Meter up to 12.

The Ministry of Truth's "bombshell" stories about Kavanaugh (a.k.a Whatshisname) consisted of things like having had credit card debt.

Brittany Hughes also noted that leftist hadn't freaked out this badly since--yesterday.

Kurt Schichter advised us to enjoy the meltdowns and egg them on for more (in order for them to lose in November's elections).

While this may seem amusing, I also find leftist behavior appalling as well.

And conservatives aren't the only ones.

There's now a #WalkAway movement among saner liberals that's going viral.

This doesn't these mean level-headed liberals will become card-carrying members of the GOP.

They don't have to be.

A simple return to civility, and the adult concept of agreeing-to-disagree, will be nice.
