The ads on the right hand side of my page are showing right now.

1. A severely deformed baby

2. A story about a lion that was caged up his whole life

Everything about this makes me heartsick and it happens all the time!

I have been all the fuck over FB looking to put in a complaint and there is no way you can talk to a human or even put a complaint in! And that shit about clicking the X on the ad doesn't work if the ad doesn't have an x anywhere on it.

I want to delete my account but I have too many relatives and friends on it.

I'd ask for answers but I don't think there are any. (I already did a Google search and followed 2 ways to do it and ended up at another question page. And when I read the directions and go back over there I am always missing the button you have to click!

Maybe if I just stay off for a while they would leave me the fuck alone!

So this dog rescues this cat. Or maybe he is stealing it. Or just messing with it.


So how is Gorsuch going to feel sitting next to 8 other jurors who got their jobs without

extra help?

I wouldn't want to be him.

Serious question re: Gorsuch. Why can't all or more Dem Senators run out the clock. Keep wasting

time until the president is arrested or kicked out or what have you? The damn Republicans wasted God knows how much time repealing Obama Care 60+ times why can't our senators waste time until this administration finalizes its almost 100% probably implosion?

I am really heart sick at the thought of this man getting a seat on the Supreme Court. Especially after listening to Sheldon Whitehouse talk about all the 5/4 decisions , including Citizens United, that has been so horribly destructive to our country and people. And then reading about his lack of empathy, which is just like Trump and might possibly put him under the Narcissism umbrella with him.

And didn't it just become clear that he may committed a crime by plagiarism?

He is another mean, capitalist who thinks people mean less than companies and he will be in this position FOR LIFE!

Our country cannot handle anymore of this.

If there was a time to pull out all the stops I think it is now.

So are the Democrats actually going to spend time hogging the floor during the Gorsuch debate?

Because I have some great reading material to start out with

The FBI and CIA are investigating Trump's ties to Putin I'd think they would obtain a warrent

for his tax returns.

I've heard it said plenty of times that everyone believes his tax returns hold the answer or really incriminating evidence and I would think they would want this information.

However is it possible that they have the information but won't let the information go public?

I know if they are investigating Russian collusion with Trump camp they would want to get a bunch of information about where the various players got their money

You gotta see this.

North Carolina repealed bathroom bill and replaced it with the same bill in different language

You may remember North Carolina’s infamous House Bill 2 (HB2), the bill that has cost the state over $3.75 billion dollars, cost its former Gov. Pat McCrory his election, and cost thousands of LGBTQ North Carolinians their piece of mind and safety. It has been a stain on the state compounding the disgrace of a General Assembly that had already systematically worked to disenfranchise Black voters and solidify power for those already seated in office.

Yesterday, as the legislature approached today’s deadline imposed by the NCAA to repeal HB2, newly elected Gov. Roy Cooper, Senate Leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore reached what they are calling a “compromise” repeal of HB2.

The bill does repeal HB2, but it just replaces it with prohibitions on local government entities (including cities, towns, schools) from extending legal protections to LGBT people until 2020 and bans on protections for transgender individuals in restrooms and other single-sex spaces forever.

The bill makes it illegal to protect people from discrimination. And worse still, it does so under a claimed interest in protecting “bathroom safety and privacy.”



It also states that so far in 2017 at least 8 trans women have been murdered. I hope the NCAA is not fooled by this bill and refuses to move their games until an actual repeal is enacted

EDIT TO ADD: The state has lost $600 million so far. These lawmakers hate trumps everything, including the welfare of all its people

Seattle is suing Trump for his threats to sanctuary cities. Says unconstitutional

Seattle announces lawsuit over Trump sanctuary cities threat

SEATTLE — Seattle filed a lawsuit Wednesday over President Donald Trump’s executive order that threatens to withhold federal funds from communities that refuse to cooperate with efforts to find and deport immigrants in the country illegally.

Mayor Ed Murray said the order issued in January punishing “sanctuary cities” is unconstitutional and creates uncertainty around the city’s budget.

“This administration has created an atmosphere of anxiety in cities across America and has created chaos in our politics,” Murray said. “It is time for cities to stand up and ask the courts to put an end to the anxiety in our communities and the chaos in our system.”


To the wonderful people here who have helped me so much....I have another question!

Seriously though this forum and the people who participate as helper are wonderful. Maybe no one tells you that enough so I want to. You guys rock!

So here is my problem du month. I like those tweets where people write more than on a regular tweet and it is like they are making a poster and posting it. So I found "Twitter cards" which may or may not allow you to do that. But in reading I came along something I had to deal with way back when I sold things on Etsy.com Here is what it says:

Sample Code
Adding a Summary Card to your Tweets is as simple as adding the below meta tags to your site:

<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@flickr" />
<meta name="twitter:title" content="Small Island Developing States Photo Submission" />
<meta name="twitter:description" content="View the album on Flickr." />
<meta name="twitter:image" content="" />

So like WHERE ON MY SITE?? I don't have a site! I have a Twitter frigging page. When I had an Etsy store I remember I stuck a code like this in my profile page somewhere and it worked. I have no idea why.

Then again maybe I don't want this as it might be for businesses. I want to be able to say more in a tweet. I have used TwitLonger.com but that just uses a link.

Help me......?
