Had it

Ok,
I suffer from "Aluminitis", generally known as the inability to stop anything/everything Airstream. I currently own a 1989 Airstream 345LE motorhome, yes, I typed that correctly, Airstream Motorhome.

Anyhow, I've had a great friend/co-hort who also owns same model motorhome who lives in California. "Sam" (not real name) is immigrant from UK, lives with girlfriend in SoCal, and is Pro-Trump all the way! Weird part, girlfriend is Jewish. Not half, or 1/4, but 100% Jewish. So, here's a man, who cannot get United States citizenship, living with his Jewish Girlfriend who is a complete and total Dump Supporter. Oh well, at least I can take solace that he's unable to vote for this train-wreck of a pResident.

This morning, I have a text-string of messages stating that he'd read on Facebook about Dump and Co. wanting to prevent Military Families the ability to automatically have any/all children become United States Citizens while on Military Bases anywhere in the World. Upon further investigation by "Sam", he's discovered that while 'true', this new rule only applies to 'adoption' of children by Military Families while on Military Bases.

So, here are our Military Families, on the other side of the World, sacrificing their time with extended families back home, possibly even watching their active duty Mom or Dad (or both) sent off to Deployment in a War Zone, who've decided to grow their family by adoption, are now being told by the United States government that this adopted child WILL NOT be a United States Citizen?

Where does the insanity stop?

Anyhow, I'd had enough of 'Sam' and his racism. I'd always looked past his text messages, his posts on FB, his emails about glorious 45, but this morning, I'd had enough. Maybe it was all of the same s**t that my immediate family had posted the night before, that was now being shared by basically a complete stranger. At some point, I'll be able to look at my Family in the eye and say "You were totally and completely WRONG about your FKN hero Dump, but doubt I'll ever be able to to with 'Sam'

This morning, I deleted 'Sam' from my email list, made certain that any/all emails will automatically go into trash folder, never to be seen by me. Cell number sent to "Blocked List" I can make allowances for Family Members, they are, after all, Family, but I'll never put up with this SHITE from essentially a stranger. How the Jewish Girlfriend of 'Sam' can even go along with any of "Sam's' b/s concerning his adoration of Dump is beyond me. Guess the extended period of time between Holocaust and today, has brushed aside the similarities to the point where she's forgotten that all that Dump is doing to Immigrants, is eerily similar to what Hitler did to too many minorities (Jews, Gays, Gypsies, handicapped, elderly, too many others to list).

My question is, over-reacting? Or did I let this continue much too long?

Spell 'Republican'

What am I doing wrong

Trying to save mp3 to SD card on PC laptop computer. I've downloaded mp3 direct to SD card, ejected card by way of File Explorer. I've tried copying files from Music Folder to SD card, and ejecting SD card as well. Only once was I successful in being able to play music from SD card on car stereo.

Suggestions?

Thoughts?

Anything would be greatly appreciated.

Last Night



My ‘old man’ Bentley (World’s best co-pilot, and just 2 weeks shy of his 14th Birthday) took his last breath next to me around 3am this morning. I kept him close all the way to the end. Rest In Peace my wonderful fella. You will be missed terribly.

Sometimes you just gotta vent

It's gotten to the point that I'm not able to speak to my elderly parents about anything except family any longer. My Dad is PARKED in front of the television, Fux News blaring their propaganda, which of course, he believes every utterance, no matter how ridiculous (Windmill Cancer anyone?)

My Mom is PARKED in front of her computer, posting some of the MOST HATEFUL stuff (to the point that one of her grandson's BLOCKED her) about practically anyone that is not a Republican. She even asked at one point "Why did Grandson #2 block me on FB?" My response was 'have you ever thought to look at your hateful FB posts?'. Of course, no response from either.

Since I'm the only of the 3 'kids' (we're all AARP eligible now) that lives in same State as parents, it's literally up to me to be certain that Mom and Dad have what's needed and required. Yes, they are mobile, yes, they are able to do for themselves, but at times, they do require an extra helping hand. I don't mind, they did same for me and my siblings throughout our lives.

Frustrating to see them get brainwashed by the hatred and stupidity in our Nation at this day and time. Dad has even gone so far to BUY A GUN! As kids, we were NEVER allowed even have a TOY GUN!

I just don't know what to do with these two. I keep my mouth shut, politics are completely off the discussion list. But at times, I almost feel like I just want to start stating FACTS and shut them down.

Anyone else in same situation? Some days it's just worse than others, and today I just had to vent.

Not certain if this belongs here

Can I start a Poll on DU

Or is that even allowed? I've tried to search, unable to determine.

Sealed Indictments

I can remember reading in the past few months, Mueller submitting several Sealed Indictments. The article even contained the Sealed Indictments numbers.

With all of the hoopla of the Barr Summary, seems that those Sealed Indictments are no longer in play?

Unsealed Indictments

If I remember correctly, there are still quite a few Unsealed Indictments that Mueller has pending. I'm guessing, if correct, there will still at least a few more Indictments?
