Apropos of nothing.


That probably would or should have been the title of the blog, not just this post, but well, it will give me something to think on or change or mess with later. Now on my ‘other’ blog, which I won’t go in to much at this time, I have posted at the top of it the following, as ‘explanation’…notice I have not said as excuse, redemption, nor anything else. I am what I am, how I am; I like me just fine, regardless.

The Best-Looking One Always Wins: Presidents and Elections by Ryil Adamson

kindle unlimited, yes had a LOT of thoughts about this book, and it took ‘forever’ to finish it, because wasn’t going at my normal ‘how do you read/listen that fast’ speed

“”Not saying anything about the issues was by design.The {Whigs} were not on party, they were a conglomeration of many, and anything Harrison said would have said would have offended one of them.” “{Harrison will not} say one word about his principles or his creed. Let him say nothing. Promise nothing. Let no committee, no convention, no town hall meeting ever extract from him a single word about what he will do now or in the hereafter.” In the first modern campaign, the Whigs learned quickly that passion was more important that fact.” {double parenthesis for quotes mixed in with writer commetary in the writing} Reminds me of Trump’s ‘campaign, with the alternative facts, ommission of facts, and the lies based on not contradicting known false or opposite stances, except that Trump is addicted to publicity and shooting his mouth off, so he only changes what he ‘thinks’ based on ‘donations’ and other money making ways {NRA, etc}. Note that Harrison went to make long rambling about nothing speech, san coat or gloves, on Inauguration day, and died month later. Ah, the good old days…. {The same could be said of Clay, he was for and against everything, depending.}

Disagree a bit on the election of 1852, where the writer said {if you went back with time machine} “This is a election you might be able to win because never before (and some say since) have two bigger losers been nominated against each other.”. I think back to Sanders/Clinton then Cllinton/Trump and the associated mockery of democracy I saw and experienced while living and voting in Iowa during Caucus that year.

This was an interesting and would say ‘fun’ but, well, it’s about politics so…. Do see the ‘commie’ hunters etc thing from the ‘past’ showing up with McCarthy, Goldwater, and of course Trump who goes opposite extreme and luvs the commie countries he likes heads of, hates the ones he doesn’t, and adores the ones stupid enough to loan him money for anything. Was right about no other president so advanced voting for the Republican party, and with Trump no other has made it a Blue Tidal Wave to NOT vote that party. At least Nixon said the buck/blame lay on the Presidency no matter what, yet another difference with Trump when it’s Democrat presidents but not Republican nor heaven forbid, his own.

Artical V convention to fix issues {limited to what each state wants to address} with various issues {agreed upon beforehand, going in} will supposedly adress the issues if they get enough states to pass triggering the overhauld{s}. As for the Electoral College thrtr have been at least 700 proposed amendments to modify or abolish the Electoral College – more than any other subject of the Constitution. There have been far too many elections that were contested or should/could have been, and way far too many where the people’s votes/popular votes were won yet the Electoral College gave the presidency to someone else. As for the ending comments, it goes to show how bad the Electoral College way is {she won the poplualar vote by good margin}, but also that Party Over Principles is still a major problem. Then of course there was the issue for some that wanted and expected Bernie Sanders {and which caucus etc showed he won more than was given}, versus 2 end candidates where some only voted for one because couldn’t stand the other. I also disagree that Trump had/has the ‘it’ factor; more bullsh*t factor. I actually called it the ‘ist/ict/ic factor’ — for such things including racist, homophobic, misanthropic {and the list goes on and on, like the never-ending song}.

At caucus, Republicans cast secret ballots, so there is room for fraud, and Republican vote totals are forwarded to GOP state headquarters to determine delegates. The biggest difference between the parties’ caucuses is that, while Democrats do show hands, must have at least 15 percent of the caucus site’s voters to remain viable/otherwise presuaded to realign with another group {though they can stand off to side and be totally ‘uncountable’}. The size of each group determines {there is actual count} how many delegates it can send to county conventions, and those delegates will pick from among themselves to determine representatives for Democrats. Re Caucus coin flips due to tie in votes, LAW states whoever WINS the coin toss LOSES the delegate…Hillary won {various reports} 6 or 7 coin flips, which would mean she LOST those delegates NOT won them. Bernie Sanders trailed Hillary Clinton by just 290 delegates in the Democratic presidential nomination race May 2016 if superdelegates were NOT counted. Clinton 1705 Sanders 1414 Difference = 291 {note that supposedly superdelages have never made difference in who won, have no idea if that is true or not BUT the Electoral College is by far the most worrisome thing of all for true democracy.

Yes, we can always vote for ‘someone else’ next time, though in my case and for many others we already did; the Electoral College let us down, let the world down, and now America, and the rest of the planet are stuck waiting, seeing and planning on just what and how to pick up the pieces of what is left of our Constitution, our protections, our way of life, and our planet.

P.S. Would be a bit hard, but one issue is how recent some election is/knowledge of the candidates, but even with recent ones the runner-ups {competitor for the same party nomination} if compared…Bernie Sanders would have aced the Hot Scale…sort of smart geeky hot, but knows his stuff type of guy, and do think that television and especially social media play a huge part in those things these days, just looking at Sander’s base and type/s of support. P.S. Still think Sanders won, and Gore. And as for Trump, there’s something screwy there is he is considered the ‘better looking’, because while Hillary is no stunner, she’s still not a skin color only known to orange


Bryan’s “Cross of Gold” Speech: Mesmerizing the Masses

The most famous speech in American political history was delivered by William Jennings Bryan on July 9, 1896, at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The issue was whether to endorse the free coinage of silver at a ratio of silver to gold of 16 to 1. (This inflationary measure would have increased the amount of money in circulation and aided cash-poor and debt-burdened farmers.) After speeches on the subject by several U.S. Senators, Bryan rose to speak. The thirty-six-year-old former Congressman from Nebraska aspired to be the Democratic nominee for president, and he had been skillfully, but quietly, building support for himself among the delegates. His dramatic speaking style and rhetoric roused the crowd to a frenzy. The response, wrote one reporter, “came like one great burst of artillery.” Men and women screamed and waved their hats and canes. “Some,” wrote another reporter, “like demented things, divested themselves of their coats and flung them high in the air.” The next day the convention nominated Bryan for President on the fifth ballot. The full text of William Jenning Bryan’s famous “Cross of Gold” speech appears below. The audio portion is an excerpt. [Note on the recording: In 1896 recording technology was in its infancy, and recording a political convention would have been impossible. But in the early 20th century, the fame of Bryan’s “Cross of Gold” speech led him to repeat it numerous times on the Chautauqua lecture circuit where he was an enormously popular speaker. In 1921 (25 years after the original speech), he recorded portions of the speech for Gennett Records in Richmond, Indiana. Although the recording does not capture the power and drama of the original address, it does allow us to hear Bryan delivering this famous speech.]



He dismissed Carter’s critique of his views on Medicare with a mocking “There you go again.” In his final statement, Reagan delivered a knockout punch: “Are you better off than you were four years ago? Is there more or less unemployment…than there was four years ago?” Reagan’s rhetorical questions, carefully rehearsed but delivered with his characteristic power, pierced Carter’s presidency and helped cement Reagan’s legacy as the Great Communicator. “Certainly no one remembers what the hell Carter said that night,” says Rick Shenkman, a presidential historian at George Mason University. “It was Reagan’s debate.” A week later, it was Reagan’s election.

So for Trump, the unprecedented unpresidential @POTUS ask yourselves that: are you, your neighbors, your friends, your employer, your state, your country, your planet…better off today, tomorrow, not to be tarnished and sullied for generationS to come? It is NOT supposed to be Party Over Principles, it’s NOT.

{*which only use in case it goes to twitter, because the unreal @realDonaldTrump is NOT subect to presidential archive record law/s BUT the potus account IS so he can NOT {already ruled on my Supreme Court} erase/delete ANY of THOSE tweets, so I ALWAYS tag THAT account}


Bill Maher said, “Suppose that perhaps Donald Trump had been the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan, because, well, I didn’t just make this up. The color of his hair and the color of an orange orangutan is the only two things in nature of the same color. . . . I’m not saying it’s true, I hope it’s not true, but unless he comes up with proof, I’m willing to, I’m willing to offer five million dollars to Donald Trump that he can donate to a charity of his choice, Hair Club for Men, the Insitute for Incorrigible Douchebaggery, whatever charity . . .”

Wild at Heart….

Happy {should have been} Birthday? Is that the same as an Unbirthday…nah that’s Alice and Bilbo stuff. So…it’s been another year, total for you; guess it sorta sucked in different ways. Did for me, but different than you, of course. My vision in Jersey then in Iowa went from legal low vision to legally blind, then after months of waiting for Chicago SS to come back with ruling, they claimed they had, months before, but we both know that’s b.s. because it was set to be forwarded to Iowa and you checked the mail all the time. Now have to get a lawyer and get all those records pulled, especially all the appointments after appointments your cedar vally eye docs put me though.

Been following the unprecedented unpresidential doofus potus, having to remember to put @POTUS for twitter because otherwise his personal ‘real’ donald trump doesn’t auto go to the other, and of course as you know under the records act after Nixon they made it law that all such things as that couldn’t be erased etc and then, of course, they had to rule that yes, twitter twit snit fits count, at which time he, of course, started using his personal account more and only putting certain things over for the potus account.

Had to do real facts, again, the other day, versus faux newz alternative facts, which ended up with me having to take up for Obama, and could hear your ass laughing from there to here. Still say a junior senator was not READY to be president, although now of course we have ‘reality tv’ ‘star’ meaning big ball of hot gas, but the other part is of course bullshit and oxmoronic term, but then so is trumpedup’s presidency.

OH! Asked your sister if your account had been memorialized through facebook yet; it will just ‘static’ your page, keep it here, but can’t delete/change things that you’d posted etc, and if she needed help that I’d done it for Jeff Roberts’ page so just let me know. Also told her where to find your mom’s jacket I left in Iowa, and where the bread and pasta maker were, because you had a crapload of stuff in that house, including the modified Dr Who scarf I made your ‘short’ self & yes I remember we’re the same height but Joe ODonnell said 5/6″ was short even though charts say it’s average…with just that one being that, the under is short and over is tall, of course. Hope she remembered to get your almost new laptop and your external hard drive, there were a lot of family pictures on that.

Also getting to end of writing the book, dedicated to you, because it’s a fairy tale type one that has the adopted pompous prince {can’t remember the title, will look it up later, stupid chromebook is messing up}, and you can guess who the trumpedup so called prince is. I have mixed in the Apocalypse, the 4 Horsemen, and that foreign lady who had the visions, not ali baba but something like that, who said the black man would be the last American president. I’m trying to channel some of your rants and my rants politically in to the story of course, and going to make it permafree on amazon when I figure out enough to jump through their hoops for that. Not really different than me writing any of the blog posts I’ve done, just even longer, and without all the cuss words.

I miss you, and hope you’re allowed to have a nice pipe smoke now and then, and maybe shoot at a few targets; if you get the chance, mosey on over to John Mark’s section, he has unlimited weapons and ammo, or Daddy’s section, he has unlimited fishing equipment and bait. Tell them I miss them both, too.



Things that do NOT say ‘stable genius’

twitter version
racist liar Fred claim GERMAN was Swede ancestry,current debate ?s his/children’s certificates forged?Wife go Scotland mother have babies?Trumps donate $/wing?Donald NOT find baby dr?Noone recall Mary pregnant/USA 1945/1946?NO hosp attendants recall birth?Mayor sign bc crony Fred

Not so fun fact; Trumpedup’s father, known long time liar and racist, claimed Swedish ancestry {LIE} born in Germany. Question now if he had his/his children’s certificates forged meaning DJT NOT born THIS country. Fred Trump Sr thought lying about heritage financially beneficial/make successful in USA so questions become:1.Did Fred use money to Forge US Birth Certificates for himself/his children? 2.Did Donald’s mother as standard go home {Scotland} to her mother/to give birth? 3.Did Donald Trump’s father teach lying about heritage/birthplace? 4.How much would Trumps have given Jamaica Hospital for fake Birth Certificate for kids & that why donated wing & $$? 5/6/7. Why can’t Donald find doctor who allegedly helped him be born? How come no one remembers Mrs. Trump pregnant in USA 1945/1946? Why no at Jamaica Hospital attendants in 1946 come forward to say remember Donald Trump birth?

Because Fox is unable to view and touch the original in person, one can not tell if the official seal is raised. A credit card receipt included in the paperwork provided by Trump shows he ordered the copy of the birth certificate on April 27th, 1999. The birth certificate shows it was issued the next day on 4-28-99. If Trump had already obtained this official document, then why did he offer up his Hospital Birth Certificate first? The Birth Certificate Donald Trump gave ABC News also raises questions about what country Donald Trump was really born in as the one he submitted was signed in 1946 by New York City Mayor William O’Dwyer, who attended Fordham University as did Donald Trump and who knew Fred Trump. According to the Wyman Institute in 1938, when William O’Dwyer was a judge, he was willing to break US Laws and International Laws for people O’Dwyer was friends with. Was Fred so obsessed with lying about his own heritage that he asked Mayor O’Dwyer to Forge a US Birth Certificate for him and his kids? Was one of the many business tricks Donald Trump learned from his mentor and father, Fred Trump, was to lie about one’s place of birth and lie about one’s heritage?

Donald Trump put the wrong birth date on his New York absentee voter application form, leading Board of Elections officials to question whether his vote counted in the city’s most recent election. Both Mr Trump and his wife, Melania, applied for absentee ballots to vote in the 7 November mayoral election in New York City, where they lived before moving to Washington DC. Ms Trump’s application went off without a hitch, but Mr Trump listed his birthday incorrectly – by an entire month. The President was born on 14 June, 1946, but his application, obtained by the New York Daily News, lists him as being born in July. The Board of Elections did not notice the error until a Daily News reporter pointed it out. {Later BOTH votes were thrown out as ineligible.} Election officials also stated that ballots  for he, his wife, daughter, and son-in-law were not counted, Melania not following all instructions correctly, Ivanka Trump mailed in her ballot too late to be counted, and Jared Kushner never mailed his at all. In presidential election, Trump was seen and photographed looking over the partition at his wife’s ballot, although it is unknown whether he was checking if she voted for him or just didn’t know squat about any of the other voting agendas listed or both. New York state, closed primary state, meant that Eric and Ivanka did not vote because they were too stupid to know when cut off for registering was; New York state is a closed primary state, so anyone who wants to vote in a presidential primary would have needed to state their new party affiliation before Oct. 9 — a date that slipped by on the calendar for non-Republicans Eric and Ivanka Trump.It is unknown if Trump Jr voted for his father, though he is registered republican, but the ballot did not come with pictures of the candidates so anyone’s guess.

Moffat crap minus tastic loses PLOT

Still a “real Bill” out there traveling the universe with Heather, Nardole was last on the planet/ship so when was he supposed to have died, not explain how partially cybernetic Nardole would have actually been able to be replicated from his memories considering subjects had to actually be dead prior to the Testimony process, he had totally forgotten about Clara then boom totally remembered her yeah right NOT, Testimony shows up to Captain in TARDIS but then what…? 1 regenerates, Capaldi regenerates, so it did or didn’t have anything to do with Testimony, because those 2 and the Captain all live, and what does it matter if he does as he’d already had kids, and makes no sense being about Captain because they don’t even know who he is at first and for quite a while after.

On the planet/ship he ignited everything and killed everyone including himself, and last seen is Bill getting the Puddle immortality plus Doctor Her going to the TARDIS, on the ‘planet’ BUT in the xmas special he puts off regen and possibly because of that and 1 there is issue maybe now stupid ‘story’, then all sudden she hits one button on TARDIS and falls OUT the door, which makes no sense because that’s not what happens when TARDIS is  moving AND he’d closed the bloody door.

There were decent scenes, primarily Capaldi, the scenes with new, totally not make sense, at all. Moffat’s ‘story line’ for lack of a better more accurate word, was a contradictory mishmash of CRAP. It didn’t go out with a bang, it went out with a whining whimper of self-indulgent CRAP.

BTW, AGAIN this IS CANON … 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, War, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12
Hartnell,  Troughton, Pertwee, T Baker, Davison, C Baker, McCoy, McGann, Hurt, Eccleston, Tennant, Tennant, Smith NEW CYCLE REGEN Capaldi, Whittaker — Time Lords/Ladies have 12 regenerations/13 lives

Smith being on #13 so Capaldi is #14 Whittaker #15

Hopefully Chibnall won’t drop the ball…and kick it under the table to pick up crumbs, dust, and and other debris.

Congratulations Barnes and Noble, you suck worse than Amazon!

People purchasing books from B&N have started to use calibre to strip the DRM, because of actions by B&N as well as other ‘providers’. You ‘own’ the book, you paid for the book, or even on ‘freebied’ day that is STILL bought, because amazon and others consider that a ‘verified PURCHASE’. I have seen several forums where they strip the DRM just because of B&N and amazon and yes even Google Books because of this crap. One particular one said lost 10 customers between her, her mother, and everyone she knows that has a nook or any dealings with them.  Yes, Amazon has a nasty reputation for remote deleting the content off of your device and for rewriting the definition of the word “buy”.  But even if you do NOT have current cc info on your account, not even amazon gift card amount of any type at all, a FREE book WILL still go through. Now, what happens afterwards at any point is another matter. B&N will NOT do any of this AND they are also DRM locked. The writer can choose not to apply Digital Rights Management (DRM) software to the digital file download of Google books.{They have to choose that by going to the book catalog by selecting the title and settings under distribution and unchecking the box labeled DRM Enabled. And there’s template-level setting to disable DRM for any new books. {Google uses Adobe Content Server 4 using one time authentication per reading system, and those devices can then request ACS4-encrypted EPUB or PDF files via a Google-provided API. {Note that due to technical limitations, large DRM-enabled books (greater than approximately 128 MBs) will not be made available for download.}

FYI  Humble Bundle and Smashwords are both DRM free. Most authors on smashwords offer their books in all formats therefore kindle readers can buy them and nook owners and those without readers can get versions for computer reading. I heard that Baen Ebooks has lots of 100% DRM free and reasonably-priced e-books; I don’t recall personally have any dealings with them but if you are looking for DRM free just saying.

So, either get the books, preferable DRM free, but somewhere where they can be downloaded/accessed when you get around to it. As someone who has over 15000 ebooks JUST on amazon cloud, there is no way to know just what books get deleted without me knowing because well duh I’d know but I don’t because they don’t publicize it and I would’t have any idea with that many books.

Before, when I was on windows {and again when I get mine back up} had calibre and a couple or more ‘change format’ programs plus just on windows had Narrator and Speakonia for audio. My tablet has android so it has Talkback and @readaloud, and have newer chromebook {Acer Chromebook 15} which has ability to use more and more android apps, BUT have YET to be able to make it vocally read to me. It also has Chromevox Classic {mine is newer and simply called Chromevox} but have YET to be able to make it read to me, other than reading the screen re directions and page info, but as for a sentence or periodical or heaven forbid an actual book, NOPE. Pretty bad when you realize I used to be a computer tech, so just saying.

There are various ones that have text to speech but have only found ones that you have to highlight what you want read for it to do that; for a book, yeah NOT really feasible. Still working on NOT chromevox etc but Read Aloud: A Text to Speech Voice and/or Talkback, or both, to get to working for reading a book {epub for chromebook, it still won’t read on kindle cloud, no reader or system will}.
