The shooting at Vegas is so tragic, again peoples lives cut short while they were having and sharing happy moments.
My heart goes out to all those families that are affected.
The world is getting crazy.
It's going to take a long time to heal America.
I hope you make it a better place for the future generations, this can't go on.
Love will always find a way, and is always stronger.

U.S. opposes UN resolution against death penalty for same-sex relations

The U.S. on Sept. 29 voted against a U.N. Human Rights Council resolution that condemns the death penalty for those found guilty of committing consensual same-sex sexual acts.
The resolution — which Belgium, Benin, Costa Rica, France, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia and Switzerland introduced — passed by a 27-13 vote margin.
Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Rwanda, South Africa, Togo, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Albania, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Latvia, Slovenia, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, El Salvador, Panama, Paraguay, Venezuela, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland and the U.K. supported the resolution. Botswana, Burundi, Egypt, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, China, India, Iraq, Japan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates joined the U.S. in opposing it.

Kenya, Nigeria, Tunisia, Indonesia, the Philippines, South Korea and Cuba abstained.

The resolution specifically condemns “the imposition of the death penalty as a sanction for specific forms of conduct, such as apostasy, blasphemy, adultery and consensual same-sex relations” and expresses “serious concern that the application of the death penalty for adultery is disproportionately imposed on women.” It also notes “poor and economically vulnerable persons and foreign nationals are disproportionately subjected to the death penalty, that laws carrying the death penalty are used against persons exercising their rights to freedom of expression, thought, conscience, religion, and peaceful assembly and association, and that persons belonging to religious or ethnic minorities are disproportionately represented among those sentenced to the death penalty.”


I'm just going to be triggered forever i guess. Massacre on Monday, official endorsement of our executions on Tuesday, emboldened rapists and nazis prowling the streets all year, whole classes of people excluded from medical care, criminalization of body autonomy

this is a culture of death

I knew it would be bad in almost every facet of life if Trump became president but I never imagined lunatics and every day haters would be given carte blanche to fucking kill us, too, for "consensual same-sex relations" (among other things).

Some days I think I will just lose it.

At Least 25 People Shot in Texas Church Massacre.

From what has been reported, shooter was chased down and shot dead. Small town 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. I'm sure there will be more to report as investigation continues.

It's a very small community, approx 600 people there.


Why, why, why?

Muslims who kill are terrorists. White men who kill have "mental instability" but access to all the guns they want.

When will the time come to talk about all this so it doesn't keep happening? If not now, then when?

This was the deadliest killing in the United States....in 35 days.

Yes, dear leader grunted this morning about this latest massacre. He said it was a mental illness issue, not a guns issues. But here are the facts:

IF republicans had their way, mental health funding would be sharply reduced and drowned in a bathtub.


https://www.nbcnews.com/health/healt...verage-n733601

http://time.com/4829381/senate-healt...lth-insurance/

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ress/99432896/

I could link 30 more articles but you get the drift.

You know what I'm sick of? These politicians telling us all that their "thoughts and prayers" are with the victims. Thoughts and prayers are just fine indeed, but ACTIONS prove to make an immediate difference. Sane gun legislation will make a difference. Remember the bump-stock 'debate' (for 5 minutes?) It didn't go anywhere, still mass produced and still on the market.

The Texas states attorney general had the fucking nerve to say that we need more guns in church! Really? LEO at the Colorado Wal-Mart last week, yesterday? Hell, I can not keep track of this mayhem, are saying there were so many guns drawn at the store, they didn't know who was the bad guy.


More than half of yesterdays victims were children.

Sheriff Lupe Valdez resigned her position, effective next week, to run for governor of Texas. Valdez is in her fourth term and is the country’s only Hispanic lesbian sheriff. She’s one of just a few female sheriffs in Texas.

This is such great news for women, the LGBTQ community, Hispanics and more importantly, Texas. She'll be a fantastic Governor.

Is it possible that there is any chance Moore could get some extra votes from somewhere?

I have regained a tiny bit of faith in humankind.

Thank you Alabama!!!

The Republicans just defeated net neutrality.

Ends rules from 2015, that were put into place to keep the internet open and fair.

Off course they did.

Next, the legal fight.

'Intentional' event redirects cloud traffic from Apple, Google & others through Russia

By Roger Fingas

Thursday, December 14, 2017, 06:52 am PT (09:52 am ET)

Internet traffic coming into and out of Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and other companies was briefly redirected through a Russian provider on Wednesday, in what appears to have been a deliberate move.

The incident involved the Border Gateway Protocol, or BGP, which funnels high-level traffic through nodes like internet backbones, according to Ars Technica, citing reports by monitoring services BGPMon and Qrator Labs. BGPMon recorded two three-minute hijacks, affecting 80 address blocks in total. Qrator Labs said the incident spanned two hours, with the number of address blocks fluctuating between 40 and 80.

Some reasons for suspicion include the prominence of the impacted companies, and the fact that IP addresses were split into smaller blocks than those announced by the companies —something that doesn't normally happen with a BGP configuration error.

The autonomous Russian system that performed the hijack, known as AS39523, was previously inactive for years except for another BGP incident in August that involved Google.

It's unknown what might been done with data if the latest redirect was deliberate, since much or all of it would've been protected by encryption that has yet to be defeated, at least according to public knowledge.

An attacker could conceivably have figured out decryption, attempted to crack it, or may be storing the data for future attacks.

Default Did you know? (Late Breaking News from last year)

Sooo, last year, while working cross word puzzles, I noticed that the publisher of most crossword puzzle magazines featured conservative thinking processes akin to neo-republican political agenda. It's hard, if not non-existent, to find crossword puzzles that are politically non-partisan.

So, today I went looking for news on who owns TV programs, programming for TV stations, and other news media. It turns out that the reason I see news articles with an over arching desire to inculcate republican conservative agenda is that.....

An conservative media empire known as The Sinclair Broadcast group. This group is SO BIG (Think Gene Rayburn of TV Match Game shows of the 1970s), that they've bought up publishing interests (local newspapers) called The Tribune. This behemoth of an entity pander to the current administration and the current administration appointed someone from their own ranks to rewrite FCC policy so that the Sinclair interests will be able to control more TV and newspaper content.

Anyway.... here's an link to a well researched news article about how Trump has found a way to control a huge share of the news media market (ogliopoly) and why no one can get news worthy articles from any news agency that hadn't been gobbled up by .... you know who.

Btw, my research turned up other interesting items too, like the TV show Jeopardy host is republican and that major cable service providers are notoriously owned by those whose pockets are branded as republican party owners. ***boooo! ***
