I just tried to move my mother’s phone from one side of her retirement community to the other.

Can do it online if you have Verizon internet. Have to call if you do not.

Once again, there appears to be a virtual media blackout on New Year’s Eve car torchings by Muslim youths in France, but according to the Sydney Morning Herald the Yellow Vests, though reduced in numbers, were out again in Paris causing damage: Yellow vest violence surges with attack on French government building

Paris: The first Yellow Vest demonstration of the new year reached a new level of violence Saturday as a government ministry building was attacked and the minister evacuated out the back door. What started two months ago as a protest over fuel taxes has turned into a more general attack on the French government.

I would hate to be on the Jury because this psycho is so personally repulsive looking to me she makes me feel like vomiting: Race-faker Rachel Dolezal to appear in court on welfare fraud charges after claiming she was living off 'a few hundred' dollars a month yet deposited $80,000 during same period

---Dolezal, who legally changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in 2016, was charged in May with welfare fraud for allegedly illegally receiving $8,747 in food assistance

---During that same time, it's said she deposited $80,000 while claiming she was surviving on 'a few hundred' dollars a month that was being donated by friends

---Prior to Dolezal's outing, she was the head of the NAACP in Spokane

The Trial will begin in Spokane on March 4

March Madness!

Don Surber on comedians.
Im unimpressed by Louis CK but this is sensible.
https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/01/who-stands-by-roseanne.html
Louis C.K.'s bit was about David Hogg and the Parkland shooting survivors. He said, "They testify in front of Congress, these kids? What are they doing? You’re young! You should be crazy! You should be unhinged! Not in a suit. You’re not interesting. Because you went to a high school where kids got shot? Why does that mean I have to listen to you? Why does that make you interesting? You didn’t get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way, and now I’ve got to listen to you talking?"

In Europe you must live in fear, apparently. You're not allowed to defend yourself.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2019/01/austrian-police-charge-woman-for-hitting-migrant-who-molested-her/

Austrian police have changed a young woman with inflicting bodily harm for defending herself against a sexual molester, local newspapers report. The incident took place during the New Year’s Eve celebrations in Vienna’s landmark City Hall square, where a 21-year-old Swiss woman pushed back an Afghan migrant who tried to assault her.

I really recommend watching the video linked in this Twitter post. Iran bothers me because I remember how it used to be.

This is Iran before 1979. Before Sharia law & the Islamic Revolution. Today women are oppressed, having their rights taken away, reduced to little more than property. This is the transformation you're seeing take place in Europe, right before your eyes. pic.twitter.com/hrRUQNtn1t

Property taxes are the Deep State's argument against freedom. They're an 18th century concept when only male property owners voted. They should've been shitcanned a long time ago.

Pin,

Investing in property liens is popular and viable, but you'll be up against very savvy buyers.

Find an auction. Go. See if you can figure out what's going on.

If not, you need to educate yourself.

Pinandpuller

Interesting, jim. My parents had this crazy neighbor. Lawyer and confirmed bachelor, like Lindsey Graham you might say. Before he got carted away to a rest home they found him in the basement in the very back room of the house. It got condemned and bulldozed and now it looks like a park.

Criminal gangs acting up in Fortaleza. Brazil sending in troops to knock it down.

I expect to see lots of this in the near future.

Brazil's army is the largest "gang" in the country.

Narciso79

Yes the strongest tribe, their police squads are also pretty impressive,

jim nj

Narciso,

Agreed, I think both Russia and the US are trying to keep Turkey out of Syria.

I suspect the Turkish military is also inclined that way. What Ankara thinks it can be able to accomplish may be at odds with what the military thinks is more likely to happen.

I read yesterday that Turkey wants significant US help to go after ISIS. I also read an article that suggests that the Turkish army is a mass force bludgeon without the sustained ability to fight a foreign insurgency.

jim nj

Narciso,

I think the urban gangs have been left alone because it's too dangerous for the police to do a ground attack.

Add in the army with their ability to do an aerial envelopment and the odds change biggly.

jim nj

Maybe we could just help them with urban combat training.

Well if this ain't the very definition of "progress" I don't know what is:

Saudi women to get divorce confirmation by text message

A new regulation in Saudi Arabia is set to stop Saudi women from not knowing about their own divorce.

Starting from Sunday, courts will be required to notify women by text on rulings confirming their divorces.

...the measure will end what are known as secret divorces - cases where men end a marriage without telling their wives.

"The new measure ensures women get their [alimony] rights when they're divorced," Saudi lawyer Nisreen al-Ghamdi told Bloomberg. "It also ensures that any powers of attorney issued before the divorce are not misused."

Whoa! Next thing you know they'll be able to open their own bank accounts, and even get elective surgery.

Jim in Sunnyvale,

Sorry, but I have no input on the History Channel or on that topic. Narciso?

"Europe is a continent in crisis – where lo-vis people now wear high-vis jackets.

Oh, BTW, thanks to whomever mentioned Malwarebytes. My PC was acting funny in wake up mode. It didn't follow the same procedure as usual. Random differences going through start-up.

Malwarebytes found 12 things it didn't like and I quarantined them, now it's back to normal.

And Firefox is adding new privacy options

https://download.cnet.com/news/firefox-review-heres-why-you-should-switch-to-this-free-secure-and-hecka-cool-web-browser/

I block third party trackers.

See here:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/features/private-browsing/

and here:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/features/adblocker/

I've been playing around with the new features and have been getting a better browsing experience.

The only problem I've found so far is that some sites want you to white-list them to see content. I right click on Adblocker and disable filtering on the site and re-load the page. I see content and then the blocking message re-appears. It's either a problem with me not following their exact white-listing process, or their cookies are too stupid to realize that Adblocker is now off.

At that point it's not worth further effort to see their content so I just close the page and move on.
