Trump the Pussy Goes After Teenager Cat Site


Fuck Donald Trump. His lawyers have given the cease and desist to a teenager who made a website where you can use cat paws to scratch donald’s face.

We’ve mentioned how he already owns most negative domains with his name.

This fake president has taken more vacations in 3 months than Obama took in 3 years. This fake president has stolen more money from the american taxpayers than any liberal has taken in 30 years.

This fake president is a psychopathic liar.

We’ve entered nickname land. The nickname masters have taken over america, it’s all republican childish name calling all the time now.

Gotta play along for a bit at least, until the President’s lawyers sue me, or John Miller gives me a stern talking to.

Trucker Hat with Business Suit -vs- Pants Suit. Winner: Trucker Hat with Business Suit!


This clown is trying to get into the White House. His sketchy wife has already said she and their son will be staying in New York without him so they boy can continue to attend his private school (in a business suit). What a joke.

He’s not going to liquidate any of his companies, and he’s not going to separate the country’s business from his personal addiction to wealth and bragging.

Don John looks shook! There’s a real president next to a fat old con man with too much makeup on. There’s real fingers vs tiny fingers in that creepy triangle pose again.

We are headed for a very ridiculous 4 years, if he even gets sworn in.

The man literally is surrounded by scandals of every type.

All Lives Matter, and White Cops Abusing Black Men Usually Get Away With It

Have fun with your phrases  — Black Lives Matter was started to address police brutality against black americans.

If you make it about more than that you are a racist.

If you won’t talk about the core issue of the group and instead use it to attack and hate, that’s what you are.

 

Tamir Rice, 12, was murdered by Cleveland Police while playing with a plastic gun. The neighbor who called 9-1-1 even reported it was "a kid with a toy". Police shot first - a fatal shot in the chest at point blank range - then determined it was indeed a kid with a plastic gun.

Tamir Rice, 12, was murdered by Cleveland Police while playing with a plastic gun. The neighbor who called 9-1-1 even reported it as “a kid playing with a toy, maybe scaring some people”. But Police arrived and shot first – a fatal shot in the chest at point blank range – then determined it was indeed a kid with a plastic gun. Neither cop has been charged to this point.

This is the kind of case that gave force to the BLM movement.

The nut that started shooting at a crowd of cops in Dallas is a murderer, but not a surprise. I don’t think people are going to take much more of the lawlessness from the cops before they fire back.  If a cop hurt a member of my family you might end up calling me a killer too.

Apple Is Fighting For Our Digital Future

The FBI is doing a criminal investigation on a mass murder committed by americans. Some call it a terrorist attack, some don’t. Either way it’s a high profile case for the Obama justice department.

The couple that committed the crimes worked for the county government in California. The investigation has requested and received all of their online records, cloud data, phone records, work data, SMS, banking, housing, and travel receipts.

The one thing the FBI hasn’t been able to get into is their work-assigned iPhones. The now deceased users had enabled full security with encryption on the most recent iOS and did not turn on cloud backup. They put in a 4-pin code like all of us and went about their business.

The FBI now wants to know what business those iPhones might have stored. Makes sense. Problem is they lost their chance to bypass the full lockdown mode, against Apple’s advice, and now they are locked out for at least a very long time, if not forever. It’s estimated it would take 20+ years to crack the iPhone using brute force, due to all of the layers of security iOS has in place in both hardware and software.

So the FBI is now attempting to force Apple to create an insecure version of iOS that could be installed on the phones that would then allow the FBI to crack the phones.

Apple is arguing that doing so would destroy the established security of every iPhone on the planet. They say it’s akin to building the master key to decrypt even the most heavily secured iPhone and they won’t do it. It’s software’s version of cancer, says Tim Cook, and he’ll fight the FBI all the way.

It’s important to note that had the FBI followed Apple’s instructions they could have forced those iPhones to do a cloud backup and then decrypted most of the data. But instead, someone at the FBI ordered the phone be reset with no backup, leaving it in a decrypted, locked, and defensive state, and they now regret that decision.

Apple losing this case could kill the iOS and it’s ability to safely store your financial, credit card, location, and health data. Apple could no longer promise you it’s your data to secure.

The ends do not justify the means.

That user could have nuclear plans encrypted on his iPhone. I support any brute force, seizure or other legal means available to the FBI to get the data.

But the FBI better not be able to compel Apple or any tech company to ship insecure products under the guise of security. The actions of one customer, no matter how heinous, cannot and should not destroy the security of millions of other innocent customers.

 

Re-Watch Cosby?

Fascinating article and comments by someone who recently re-watched the iconic 80’s sitcom and came away very conflicted.

I have yet to see a Cosby show post-allegations. I may try the experiment and see if I can still enjoy it. There are other reasons to watch, ya know.

I know I can still enjoy Ike Turner’s work, but images of a beaten Tina do pop up eventually and bother the happiness of the moment. I guess I don’t linger on Ike’s work, I’m usually there listening to Tina so it’s not exactly the same. I can’t think of other artists that have had their personal life get in the way.

OK maybe 1 – I don’t and wouldn’t listen to Charlie Manson’s music, and I thought it was distasteful that Guns ‘N Roses covered one of his songs.

Artists are complicated people and when you find out they are in some way criminal it doesn’t immediately invalidate their work. But it can, in the end, spoil their magic because you can’t un-know something .

 

Lots of Gadgets Are Spying On You

I covered it last week here. Samsung gets called out for their smart TV’s listening and transmitting everything we say to a third party. Very 1984. You might have thought ‘Samsung isn’t the only one doing it’ – and you would be right: Lots of other gadgets are spying on you.

Do you really need to talk to your devices, when a simple button press works just as well?

Hi-Def HardFunk aka 24bit or Bust!

Was browsing around the Ponomusic store the other night, and found some good funk at full 24bit:

There seems to be more 24bit material every time I search, but in some cases 16/44 is the best you are gonna get for some time. It still sounds a lot better than what’s the norm these days, and ponoplayer plays 16/44 FLAC as good as anything in the world.

Facebook Wants To Kill Your Apps (and the Free Internet)

Recently Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s first website was discovered in a cache somewhere. It was from the late 90’s and little Mark was in 9th grade and learned how to make a HTML page and post to some defunct blogging service. My first page went up about 1996 so I found this fascinating.

Little Zuck was advertising for his first version of a social network. Even back then he was pushing something that confused the market and relied on an air of inclusion. He actually called his idea “The Web” (no, not the real www-web, but hey who cares about confusing people). Continue reading

America Prevails

Supreme Court USA


The Supreme Court decided the ACA (Affordable Healthcare Act), or Obamacare as it’s been called (usually negatively), was in fact legal and constitutional, particularly the mandate that all citizens must be covered somewhere/somehow. To reach this ruling, the high court actually rejected the term mandate and labeled it a tax, maintaining the governments right to enact it.

Good news. The doomsday scenarios at Faux and Friends are getting more hilarious by the hour. This idea of doing the same thing as most other wealthy nations somehow terrifies them, and they are convinced that Michelle Obama will fine their overweight asses for not eating enough broccoli.

Even after admitting that many doctors can opt out, that the poor are immediately helped, and that the rich will still receive the best medical service on the planet, these republicans still believe this is the end of it all. Very funny and strange, they think this is more important than almost starting WW3 a few years back. Comedy these days is Fox news.? Continue reading

Better 3 Years Late Than Never?

sony-nw-99-02-500x500The music industry, ever pro-active and cutting edge, has finally decided to try and sell music in a digital file format.

I have heard some good and many bad things about this new scheme (mainly that it won’t do much to stop digital bootlegging, which has already won) that they are calling “Echo”.

What do you think, would you pay $18 for a couple hundred megs of a downloadable music with full copy-protection and other big-brother tactics? Read more at Rolling Stone.

I really must be an old fart because I can’t imagine paying for virtual music…
I have been raised on vinyl and buying something that is not real, meaning that if you will have to burn the CD yourself, is something that I just cannot even understand…!
I don’t even buy the CDR’s that are for sale by a lot of artists who do not have a recording contract so I won’t buy the stuff especially if it’s money to be given to the record industry which denies the funk so much…
By not signing any of the artists I love I cannot see myself giving them more money for them to put out more American Idol and stuff of the same ilk (note that I am being very polite on the subject, a thing that would totally change if we had this conversation live in the open! LOL)
NO sincerely I think that the record industry is trying to jump on the bandwagon which left years ago so their try to catch it up is just plain ridiculous I think.
Imagine how much more profit the industry could get from this way of selling???????? No CD’s to be made? no artwork to be printed? No jewel case to put everything in, and more than that, no costly distributors… Hell I think they still would have the better end of the stick!!!
