Videos Stored on Google Drive

GoogleDrive does not convert files for playing like youtube does so many video files may not play (or open) while on GoogleDrive.

GoogleDrive can be used for storing video files and sharing links to the files.

All files are downloadable (ignore the virus warning on my videos LOL).

To Download from the title screen, right click and scroll down to *download*.

To Download from the video screen, click on the download icon in the upper right corner.

Most of my file formats are mp4, avi, or wmv.
If you do not have a player for any of these,
download the free VLC media player for whichever device you are using.

Enjoy the Show

Seth Meyers explained why TheRUMP voters would vote for him again in spite of his fake news, mental disorders, tweets, stupidity, and incompetence:

They know he is all bluster and they like the status quo.
In other words, they do not want him to do anything but bluster.
The bluster is entertaining for many and comedians never run out of material.
What good is a soap opera or reality TV show or a *news* program without a villain?

The US economy is still steadily heading in the right direction thanks to the previous POTUS.
Why in the world do anything catastrophic to it??????

Enjoy the show or vote to change the channel.

A New Sub Recommendation

I just did a Lekfit ITS (In The Studio) which offered rebounding and TA-like upper body.
It had no cuing and decent music.
Visually easier to follow than streamed classes because just Lauren with a mirror.
There are other videos with cuing too.

There is a free trial but I may actually subscribe down the road after more videos are added, especially if the streaming runs smoothly.

RUMP vs RUMP

When it comes to The RUMP,  he is his own worse enemy.
The more he rants on Twitter, the more he demonstrates his ignorance and incompetence.

Ossoff received more votes than predicted in spite of and probably thanks to The RUMP's Tweets and robocalls even though The RUMP is spewing his alternate facts and giving himself the credit for Ossoff not getting over the 50% needed to avoid a run off.
Ossoff was predicted from polls to get 42% and perhaps, up to 46% from undecided but thanks to The RUMP got 48%.  Also the district had been recently gerrymandered by the GOP so some who expected to vote for Ossoff, could not.

http://www.salon.com/2017/04/18/jon-ossoff-has-been-gerrymandered-to-defeat-georgia-republican-admits-his-district-was-not-drawn-for-democrats-to-win/

Why demand more aircraft carriers if his administration cannot keep track of the ones the US already have?
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-usa-carrier-idUSKBN17L03J

Why demand we buy American and hire American when products sold by The RUMP brand, including his red hats, are made outside of the US and many of his properties need visas for workers?
http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/18/news/ivanka-trump-trademarks/

Why congratulate Turkey for weakening their position as a Democracy?
(because he has businesses there!)


His ignorance and incompetency are reflected by all of his efforts as are his Conflict of Interests:

Why allow the coal industry to pollute our country when the coal industry is dead and not going to be revived? (The RUMP earns $$ from the oil industry)

Why build an expensive wall when we have 2 huge coasts less protected by a reduced Coast Guard?

Why give tax credits to the wealthier for healthcare and remove the subsidies from the less wealthy? (coal miners have received many benefits through the ACA)

Why give lower taxes to the wealthier who already do not pay their fair share, especially when he has no transparency with his own tax returns?

Why have a Muslim ban only for countries where his businesses are not located?

This list is never-ending but The RUMP is an even bigger Ass than expected and has no clue what the US taxpayers want, especially those who voted for him.  For example, his war against Mexico will hurt Iowa's corn commodity.
The GOP has no clue what US taxpayers want and gerrymandering districts can go just so far.

Grassroots movements, Town Halls, and protests will not be ignored at the polls and all frustrated taxpayers will benefit from The RUMP's Conflict of Interests, lies, ignorance and incompetence.

and this is all about finances without even including all of the people being harmed by The RUMP hate rhetoric and GOP unfair social services reductions.

Nuisance Phone Calls

It is obvious *Do Not Call* does nothing for stopping nuisance phone calls.
I usually just let the answering machine screen our calls but when my husband is out shopping, I usually do answer.  Running to the phone to answer a nuisance call has really become annoying as well as inconvenient.  I have considered dropping our landline altogether but our son does not have a mobile phone anymore and really do not want to give out our mobile numbers or have them on all of the time.

I finally took some action and figured out how to block phone numbers with our Landline FIOS Digital phone service:

https://www.verizon.com/support/residential/phone/homephone/general+support/fios+voice+service/ad/129036.htm

I have blocked all of the  numbers from the incoming call list for the past week, some of which had called several times in spite of being reported to *Do Not Call*.

Our phone may not ring at all for days or even weeks! LOL

POTDS Bannon or POTUS Trump?

Now that rump has pivoted away from the alt-right by demoting the President of the Divided States Bannon and giving a damn about Syrian kids, the big question becomes .....

will President Bannon regain control as POTDS
or
will rump try to become the POTUS and listen to more reliable advisers

Only Time will tell.

Maybe he will care about the surviving Syrian refugees
Maybe not

Maybe he will care about the American born children who face losing a deported parent
Maybe not

Maybe he will care about pollution affecting unborn fetuses and children
Maybe not


RUMP is RUMP
and only cares about himself
The sudden caring about Syrian babies was just an excuse to order the air strike in an attempt to reverse his tailspin in polls.
His old Tweets suggesting Obama would do likewise are proof.

Why RUMP Lies

http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-ed-why-trump-lies/
is part 2 of the LA Times series

copied and pasted from the article:
In the months ahead, Trump will bring his embrace of alternative facts on the nation’s behalf into talks with China, North Korea or any number of powers with interests counter to ours and that constitute an existential threat. 

Most of his claims against Mexico are lies.
He demands an expensive Wall to separate us from Mexico buts cuts the Coast Guard budget which protects our coasts from drugs and illegal immigrants.  

His conflicts of interests are never-ending.
He cuts the budget on many social services like school meals and meal on wheels while the taxpayers pay to feed his family at his restaurants.

His tax plan will benefit the wealthy while his budget will cut benefits for the poor and middle class.

He lies about ObamaCare which makes medical insurance more affordable for the poor (expanded medicaid) and middle class (subsidies) and ignores how RyanCare will only make health insurance more affordable to those who earn the most money (tax credits).

The list goes on and on.
He is a domestic terrorist in spreading hate and lies and destroying our environment.

Our Dishonest President

Our Dishonest President
http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-ed-our-dishonest-president/
this article is the first of a series by LA Times


Copied and pasted excerpts:

Trump’s shocking lack of respect for those fundamental rules and institutions on which our government is based. Since Jan. 20, he has repeatedly disparaged and challenged those entities that have threatened his agenda, stoking public distrust of essential institutions in a way that undermines faith in American democracy. He has questioned the qualifications of judges and the integrity of their decisions, rather than acknowledging that even the president must submit to the rule of law. He has clashed with his own intelligence agencies, demeaned government workers and questioned the credibility of the electoral system and the Federal Reserve. He has lashed out at journalists, declaring them “enemies of the people,” rather than defending the importance of a critical, independent free press. His contempt for the rule of law and the norms of government are palpable.

His utter lack of regard for truth. Whether it is the easily disprovable boasts about the size of his inauguration crowd or his unsubstantiated assertion that Barack Obama bugged Trump Tower, the new president regularly muddies the waters of fact and fiction. It’s difficult to know whether he actually can’t distinguish the real from the unreal — or whether he intentionally conflates the two to befuddle voters, deflect criticism and undermine the very idea of objective truth. Whatever the explanation, he is encouraging Americans to reject facts, to disrespect science, documents, nonpartisanship and the mainstream media — and instead to simply take positions on the basis of ideology and preconceived notions. This is a recipe for a divided country in which differences grow deeper and rational compromise becomes impossible.

His scary willingness to repeat alt-right conspiracy theories, racist memes and crackpot, out-of-the-mainstream ideas. Again, it is not clear whether he believes them or merely uses them. But to cling to disproven “alternative” facts; to retweet racists; to make unverifiable or false statements about rigged elections and fraudulent voters; to buy into discredited conspiracy theories first floated on fringe websites and in supermarket tabloids — these are all of a piece with the Barack Obama birther claptrap that Trump was peddling years ago and which brought him to political prominence. It is deeply alarming that a president would lend the credibility of his office to ideas that have been rightly rejected by politicians from both major political parties.
for our country to survive:
those who oppose the new president’s reckless and heartless agenda must make their voices heard. Protesters must raise their banners. Voters must turn out for elections. Members of Congress — including and especially Republicans — must find the political courage to stand up to Trump. Courts must safeguard the Constitution. State legislators must pass laws to protect their citizens and their policies from federal meddling. All of us who are in the business of holding leaders accountable must redouble our efforts to defend the truth from his cynical assaults.
