MM, I apologize for offending you. But I would have said what I said whether or not I had been aware of your absence. As I have been absent, too. And I thought my comment showed continued support for Trump, so it wasn’t about that.
When streetgang thugs have you surrounded and are pummeling you with brass knuckles and nunchuks and shivs, you don’t “put up your dukes” and hope the thugs will also obey the Queensbury rules. You use Krav Maga and kill and incapacitate as many of them as you can.
lyle, Maybe I am more of a Cellar person! Closer to a bomb shelter. LOL
“As I see this draining taking at least a decade, we will need an excellent candidate to follow Trump.“ Posted by: D | August 11, 2019 at 06:32 PM And I think the GOP maintaining control of POTUS and even one house of Congress is very unlikely at that point. Millennials, illegal immigrant voters, and social media will see to that. Whatever gains Trump perhaps makes in 2 terms will begin to be whittled away, and we quickly return to the status quo ante Trump.
Just because I am on the Ledge doesn’t mean that I don’t have “hope” or that everything is “hopeless”. And just because I don’t have TomR’s or RG’s or MissMarple’s “Trump is an effing 4D chess master and our Holy Saviour” hopes and dreams, doesn’t mean that I am hyper-critical of Trump’s performance or that I don’t support every effing thing he’s doing or has done. He was not my first choice, but I rallied around him when he won the primaries, and I think he’s done the best job anyone could have done, especially given the incessant shitstorm directed at him. I don’t think any other GOP member could have come close to doing what Trump has done. I support Trump and will vote for him in 2020. Au contraire, as others have stated, we must always have “hope”. But that hope, IMHO, is always based on “realistic” aspirations. I can hope to look just like The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, all I want ... I can work out everyday, starve myself, drinks lots of whey protein shakes, dye my hair or go bald, have cosmetic surgery to make myself look more Filipino, etc, etc. But, alas, I will never completely achieve my goal. I am too old, too short, too chubby now, too grey, too blue-eyed, and too Caucasian to ever really achieve that goal. By the same token, I think the Deep State and Establishment oligarchy are too vast, too corrupted, and too far past the point of salvaging to ever hope that Trump or the remaining American patriots who want to save America can do so WITHIN and USING the existing legal and electoral systems. Just my opinion. YMMV, and good for you if it does. My hope is that enough Americans finally reach that last straw and REVOLT, before we are all fully cooked in this heated pot and boiled to death, completely enslaved by this tyrannical Leviathan of 5he corrupt Deep State / Establishment UniParty / globalist / socialist New World Order. Just how long we delay this action will determine how bloody and violent things get ... unless we just keep simmering in the pot, holding on to our faith in these corrupted systems and institutions, hoping someone will save us. WE are our own Holy Saviours.
Dammit! Will finish that thought as soon as I can.

Joe drinks the Kool-Aid and says whatever Mika wants to hear so he can keep “enjoying” her “fruit” ..... IYKWIMAITTYD.
Ig, and now those witnesses have seen that even someone like Epstein can be killed in custody. They’ll be asking themselves, if that can happen, can it happen to them, too? Of course. This will have a stifling effect on their willingness to come forward, IMHO. The feds may gather important evidence from other sources, but their testimonies .... as the victims .... will be critical.
I take no joy in being a Ledge dweller, and I am certainly not gloating about recent events. I weep for the future of this country, and for my son. Epstein’s “suicide” is just the latest nail in the coffin. But what will be the final straw that breaks the camel’s back, and sparks the revolution? At some point, we frogs either decide to jump out of the heated pot or get boiled to death.
Mueller just looks like a doddering old fool to me. Just wondering what the fallout from this circus will be. I still think he's a Deep State Black Hat.

"I think it is completely unrealistic to believe von Braun and the other scientists had the option to defect back in 1943 timeframe. IMO they would have been branded as traitors and executed or imprisoned on the spot." They didn't "have" the option. They would have TAKEN the option. They would have MADE the effort, if necessary. That's the point I'm making. Of course, they would have been branded as traitors. They would only have been executed or imprisoned IF ... IF .... IF they'd been caught. A great risk, I know. I never said defecting was going to be easy or without risk. Far from it. I know, as you stated, that it would have ALWAYS been extremely difficult to do, especially prior to Normandy, when Germany controlled the continent. But if he'd wanted to defect, with his resources, even with the Gestapo closely monitoring his communications, I believe he could have somehow notified the Allies that he wanted to defect and that some resources (partisans, guerillas, OSS, British commandos, etc) would have been made to assist. Failing that, he could have taken the Rommel option. Extreme, but that's what people with real "morals" do ... they hurt themselves before hurting others. Would I have done the same? To be honest, I'm not sure. And I hope to never been in that situation.

"Good Lord. Do you really believe the Nazis/SS would have allowed someone like Von Braun to defect in 1943 on the grounds he disapproved of what they were doing to the Jews?" Good Lord! Do you really believe the Nazis/SS would allow anyone like Braun to just defect? If you think he could have just asked them, "Pretty please? Can I go now?" you're really not as smart as I thought you were. And to cite the self-serving US/NASA history as definitive proof of anything is really naive. I like the US government, and I trust it as much as any American can trust our government ... usually ... and I'm not convinced that there's a US gov't conspiracy to hide the existence of UFOsand aliens or that we've been secretly colluding with aliens in exchange for advanced technology (though who knows, really?), but come on!

Von Braun made several choices, 3 of which were these that point to self-interest over all else: 1) He had to decide to join the Nazi Party and the SS if he wanted to advance his research and rocketry. He chose the Nazis and the SS. 2) He had to choose, once he became aware of the crimes of the Nazis and the SS, whether or not to continue to be involved with the Nazis when he was appointed to control slave laborers at Peenemunde, Nordhausen, and other sites where component parts and materiel were manufactured. He could have chosen to defect then, but didn't. He stayed with the Nazis and the SS. 3) He chose to make sure he and others were captured by Americans, rather than the Russians. He chose America. Wouldn't you, as a former Nazi and SS member? He knew the horrors that awaited him and them as Soviet POWs. I think #2 is the most damaging, and hard to excuse. I agree with "amoral weasel", because he could have done as Rommel did, especially as Braun didn't have a wife or family himself during the war.

Friedman, who fantasizes about having a Chinese Communist government who can "get things done", having the gall to whine about "fascist" Trump. You just can't make this stuff up.

"... merger of Compaq and HP ... Personally, I liked Compaq before that debacle. HP took it down to their level.

Penalty! Over-use of word "frigging" in my last post.

Next time we just take a frigging BUS to the moon with EVERY frigging race, sex, nationality, religion, gender option, and subculture represented. Or an ark. But even THAT won't be enough, because the Left is constantly shifting the frigging goalposts.

"There is a fifth option ...." Oh, I'm sure there are plenty more. Those were MY 4 options. I'll try to be more specific in the future. ;)

Ilhan Omar should be in jail for fraud, incest and bigamy .... not in the halls of Congress. She has publicly aligned herself with AQ and radical Islamists, and is an enemy of the US. She may have already committed treason against the US. She does not like America and has a visceral hatred for Christians and Jews. She is working to destroy us from within. She does not belong here. There are 4 options in a case like this, not limited to just one: 1) Oust her from Congress. 2) Jail her. 3) Deport her. 4) Kill her. "Send her back so she can transform her own country" seems like a pretty good option. Those that have gotten the vapors over the chant at the Trump rally are part of the problem.

jim nj, Also, what were the nature of the suspect items? Usually, you'll get the higher risk items first, then followed by a lot of tracking cookies, unless another anti-virus program like Norton is already doing a good job of removing those.

jim jn, Any way to resize or move around the Malwarebytes screen to try to see the next command buttons? I can't remember if "Quarantine" or "OK" to quarantine, rather then "Cancel" is focused after the scan results appear. Might try just click "Enter" to see what happens, if you can't resize or move around in the screen to see the buttons.
