I just got my computer back from a guy who fixed

it. It is refurbished so the problems came with the computer.

Anyway I just looked and the "Teamviewer" was downloaded onto my desktop.

I didn't download it.

So I think he did. But why?

I am bisexual and I want to come out to my hating fundamentalist

Christian family. I can't stand their bullshit anymore. Both my brother and sister in law posted pro-those people who discriminated against making a cake and flowers for 2 lesbians and 2 gay men's weddings.

I've ranted about why they are so obsessed about homosexuals, why they follow THAT ONE RULE in the Old Testament and other things that I'm sure people are aware of.

They saying fucking nothing! Zero! I've had discussions with my brother over email though.

He is a Presbyterian minister and so is she.

I had a relationship with a woman for 8 years when I was in my 30's and she died. I was so devastated that night that I called my brother thinking that he might be of help, (dumb) My sister in law got on the phone and was nice to me but then after we got off the phone my brother called back and yelled at me for walking them up!!!!!!!!

But a few years after she died I started feeling myself going back the straight zone again which I actually found upsetting. But I have not had to deal with personal things with them since. And my brother and I have a better relationship now since out mom had a stroke and we had to start talking and we both have been trying to be nice to each other.

But I have fucking had it. Maybe my brother made a mistake by posting the first one about the cake fiasco but the sister in law should have known better because of the ranting I went on about the one my brother posted. Hers is from yesterday.

So how do I do this? I'm scared.

$@())(($&@. How do I get this thing on the left hand to go the fuck away? IPad

It's almost always there. First it comes up with bookmarks. Itry to hiy the littlt blue back button and no. I do other thigs and NO NO NO

I would like to share an amazing thing that happened to me

I have had horrible stomach pain on and off for years. I'been to many doctors and they haven't helped. It is something about the stomach not contracting

So i read something about saurkraut and started eating it. I am amazed at how well it works! I woke up tonight because of the pain and I ate about 3 big tablespoons

Just wanted to share in case anyone would like to try it

Forgive my gramatical and spelling mistake. Just got this I Pad and keyboard sucks for me


Does anyone know if this part is in the TPP?


Obama's Plan To Tax Overseas Earnings Draws Scrutiny

Remember he always plays a good game of chess.

"American companies have about $2 trillion in overseas accounts — money they could be using to hire workers and pay dividends in the United States. But they're reluctant to do so, in part because of the way the U.S. tax system works.
President Obama proposed some big changes in the tax code last month that would encourage U.S. companies to bring more money home. A lot of people in Washington agree with the goal, but there's sharp disagreement about how to accomplish it.

Last month, the European Union issued a report about Amazon and the taxes it pays. The online retailer does a lot of business in Europe but its corporate tax rate is in the single digits, says Crawford Spence of the University of Warwick in England. "They pay very little tax here, because most of their tax is paid in Luxembourg," he says.

And Amazon isn't alone. Big U.S. companies, including Starbucks and Apple, have pared down their tax bill by funneling revenue into tax havens like Luxembourg and Ireland. Spence says it's totally legal.

"Currently the rules are very complicated, very convoluted, which suits companies very well, 'cause there are always loopholes," he says.

This is probably the wrong thread but I would like to here from people who know the law

I talked to a friend of mine last night. She told me one of the most amazing stories I've ever heard.

First off I will say that I am not judging the woman's daughter as she has panic disorder and agoriphobia and many illnesses.

She has already lost 2 babies because she was high when she was pregnant when she was using opiates. Now my friend says that she is never allowed to keep a baby in the state of florida because of this. She is doing much better and only has "slips" with the drugs at times. Hopefully as time goes by she will finally be free of them completely.

So if she gets clean and sober in 10 years she will still not be able to have a child without the authorities taking it away? I find that ridiculous and I wonder if she has been mislead.

I'm cross posting this from GD. I see many fake news stories and when I want to check them out

I get page after page of the same shit from different right wing rags. And even if I add "hoax" or "politifact" or "snoops" I still get nothing. What can be done about this?


Lies from the right are not being debunked and you can go pages and pages in Google and it is

only a bunch of right winged sites that are stating the same thing. I was a victim of this several months ago and when I posted the fake article I got the shit beat out of me here.

I found this on someone's FB page.


"New York Assembly Passes Bill Allowing Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them"


"Today in a vote of 94-49 the New York State Assembly approved passage of AB 6221, the extreme stand-alone 10th point from the previously packaged 10-point Women’s Equality Act, which would expand third-trimester abortions and allow non-doctors to perform abortions. "

So I went through several pages on Google and all of the sites said the same thing. I had to put the bill number in to get the right information. I wish groups like Snoops and Politifact would cover these things


So apparently the cops have been changing Wikipedia pages to make themselves look better than shit


The New York Police Department has confirmed that a computer connected to its internal network was used to edit the Wikipedia page for Eric Garner, the unarmed Staten Island man who died in July 2014 after being held in a chokehold by NYPD officers.

After reports that several Wikipedia articles about alleged cases of police brutality were updated from NYPD network computers, a force representative confirmed over the weekend that officials have identified the person who edited the entry about Garner’s death.

On Sunday, Capital New York reported that a police spokesperson said that the person who made revisions to the article on Garner made them from an NYPD computer outside of headquarters.


The edits to the “Death of Eric Garner” Wikipedia page were made hours after grand jury’s decision in December 2014 not to charge the NYPD officer who put Garner in a chokehold. “Garner raised both his arms in the air” was changed to “Garner flailed his arms about as he spoke,” Capital reported, and “Use of the chokehold has been prohibited” was changed to “Use of the chokehold is legal, but has been prohibited.”

Fox news mad that students learn from class

I don't know if this was posted before but it is the first time I've seen it and I am really shocked. A
Fox "news" host interviews students from HARVARD about who is the biggest threat to world peace, ISIS or America.
