Media needs to give Democrats a voice on what's happening in Georgia

People always complain about why aren’t more democratic house or senate numbers on the news talking about how bad the Republicans are for this or that issue, not realizing that it’s not up to them if they get to be on TV or news organizations. That they have to be invited on and most of them never are.

When, not if Kemp signs the law and they remove Fani Willis the rule of law is gone in the United States of America and there better be everyone talking about it.

I just googled it and the media is already calling the law “oversight” oh for fucks sake are we fucked.

Someone on the Fean Obedillah show just pointed out that more Trump criminals were indicted under the trump administration than the past two years.

You have to pay $20 a month to secure your Twitter account?

I just went on to my Twitter account and it said I could no longer have two factor authentication using text codes unless I pay for the blue check and my alternative was authentication app.

As I will never pay a dime to Twitter I chose the authentication app and I have an iPhone but I am confused how that will work if I sign out because it’s not using the Google authentication app that I have on my phone.

I could just change the password to some ridiculous long password that couldn’t be guessed I suppose.

What are others doing?

I get 403 forbidden on only one website (so far) State Farm, and I get it on ONLY

my home network via Comcast/Xfinity and Gateway XB7 modem/router. When I switch to cellular on the iphones, Verizon, get on right away no problem.

But now on Iphone 14 (wife) and Ipad using Safari we can get on, cant get on using Chrome on those.

On my Iphone 14+ cant get on using either browser, but if I turn wifi off I get on using Verizon cellular.
Have rebooted all devices and the Gateway. Also have laptop PC, cant get on using Chrome or Edge.

403 forbidden as I understand it is the site blocking me for whatever reason, suspicious activity or whatever. Called State Farm IT and he was not aware that they ever do that but would refer it up the chain.

The app also does not connect on wifi but will when I switch to cellular.

2 days ago my router modem got goofy and had to be restarted, the ROKU and TV kept disconnecting after that when I would turn them off but now it is better.

(got warning from State Farm that an IP address logged on, which I assume is me using all these devices, but the IP they say it is I cant find in my devices, if a device is disconnected from the network and reconnected does the IP change? Pretty sure nobody is trying to get into my account, it says IOS 16 and thats what we have. Deleted cache and cookies.

This may violate this group's rule about offering medical advice, but we need to know re COVID vax

if someone has had all primary vax and boosters including Omicron for a total of
FIVE vaccinations, and if the last one (Omicron/bivalent) was approx 6 mos ago, do we need another one?

I cant find that answer anywhere including CDC site. Pharmacist at Costco said no, but I am not ready to accept that as the final answer.

I have heard we would get one annually the way we do flu shots, but not sure.

Somehow I have managed to avoid getting Covid, and want to continue that if possible.

I get confused when using Windows 11 downloading a document off of an email on my laptop.

Truthfully I never really learned how to use a computer properly.

Let's say I get an email from an insurance company with a policy document in it and I wanna download it on to my laptop, when I download it I always next go "show in folder" to rename it so I'll be able to find it later, but if I then go into search and type in the name
that I just changed it to it does not come up.

(In fact when I tried to download it I was blocked by my Chrome settings, which I can change but the only change is to allow all auto-downloads from "always allow mail.google.com" ...i might now want to ALWAYS allow that, what option do I have to do this just one at a time?)

Is there a way no matter how unpopular it might be to prevent

The terrorist, traitor GOP party from refusing to raise the debt limit? ? ? ?

Just like there is a way to increase the size of supreme court, but we know the Democratic Party has no intention of doing that, sadly. (The party, including Prez Biden went on record that they would not EVEN if they had the votes, is my recollection...and that is frustrating as hell.*)

The Republicans will destroy the world economy if they can, so what can be done to avoid it?

Our 401(k)s, our economy, everything, they’re going to destroy it all, if they are allowed to.

*Now it is one thing to say that knowing you dont have the votes so you dont make matters worse with the traitor party, using it as an excuse to do even more damage, but I think they meant it.

Is there supposed to be a deeper meaning for "Fleishman is in trouble?"

To be honest, all I see are rich white people complaining their lives aren’t 100% perfect.

Oh, and I watched the movie “White noise“ on Netflix, I won’t say anything about it, because that might influence your decision about watching it.

I have a power bank/portable charger

With a USB-C input and two USB-A inputs.

I was going to add a picture here, but I don’t know how to do that from my phone.

I know how to charge a device with it, but I do not remember how to charge the power bank itself.

It has two USB A inputs (the larger end, not the smaller end) and one USB-C input.

Thanks for the answers, I figured it out, usb-c to usb-c like the one I have to charge my laptop.

The usb-a inputs on the power bank are the larger end of a usb a cord and there is no usb a smaller end input, if you know what I mean.
