So, I'm at a local pub last night hanging out with some old mountaineering buddies and we get roped

into playing pub trivia.

One of the questions was: What was the name of Hilter's Nazi Party?

To which my friend shouts out, "The GOP."

Entire bar erupts in laughter.

Va. man charged with hate crime after using Muslim slurs, biting victims face, police say

Source: Washington Post

A McLean man is facing hate crime charges after police said he bit another man’s face in November after an altercation in which he used anti-Muslim slurs.

Robin McGreer, 35, approached a 31-year-old man in a Tysons Corner Center parking lot Nov. 27, started a conversation and then threatened him using anti-Muslim slurs, Fairfax County police said.

An altercation ensued and McGreer bit the man’s face, leaving him with a “significant face wound,” police said. McGreer left the scene before police arrived.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Fairfax police said it is the department’s policy not to release details about victims’ backgrounds, so they would not describe the victim’s race or religion.

PS. The attacker worked as a consultant for Republican Rep Barbara Comstock who is currently hiding from her constituents.

Anyone have a list of what Trump promised to do in his 1st 100 days?

I bought a lot of popcorn and am planning a 100 Day Loser Party.

What is SecureDrop?

The Washington Post’s SecureDrop is a discreet way for readers to share messages and materials with our journalists. It offers greater security and anonymity than conventional e-mail and Web forms.

How do I use it?

SecureDrop relies on Tor, an application designed to encrypt your communications and obscure your computer’s IP address.

In order to use SecureDrop:

Go to a place with a public Internet connection, one that you don't normally frequent.
Download and install the Tor browser bundle from https://www.torproject.org/.
Open the Tor browser and copy this url into the browser address bar: http://vbmwh445kf3fs2v4.onion.
From this url, you will be able to send messages and files to a secure dropbox that we will check periodically.
You will be provided with a codename that you will use it to log in to check for replies from The Post.

Keep the codename you are provided safe and secure. We will not know your codename, and you should never share it with anyone. If you forget your codename, we will have no other way to contact you.

What steps are taken to protect my privacy and anonymity?

Nearly all digital communications can leave a trail. The Washington Post's SecureDrop is designed to minimize these digital trails using best practices, such as:

limiting collection of information logged about your browser, computer or operating system;
using Tor to encrypt and anonymize your communications with us;
storing submissions in encrypted form on our systems;
physically isolating SecureDrop from the rest of our network.

However, no system is 100 percent secure, and even with these measures, there might be a risk of someone discovering who you are or what you are sending. In addition to using SecureDrop, we recommend that you:

use a secure computer to communicate with us - one that does not maintain enterprise software or malware that might be used to record your activities;
use an operating system that helps preserve your privacy and anonymity, such as Tails;
delete trails of communication that you store on your computer, such as copies of messages or your secure codename assigned when using the service;
run any files you sent to us through a metadata-scrubbing tool to minimize the risk of unintentionally sending us information embedded in the documents, such as an author's name.

Other fine print:

The Washington Post works diligently to protect the identities of our sources and keep the information they give us confidential. We do not make any warranties as to SecureDrop; use of the system is on an "as is" basis, at your own risk.

Do you have the next big story? Want to share it with The New York Times? We offer several ways to get in touch with and provide materials to our journalists. No communication system is completely secure, but these tools can help protect your anonymity. We’ve outlined each below, but please review any app’s terms and instructions as well. Please do not send feedback, story ideas, pitches or press releases through these channels. For more general correspondence visit our contact page.

Do the right thing for your country.

Thanks for the hearts . Thanks to DU and all the members of DU for helping me keep my

sanity in these trying times.

If we buy the Trump admin's insistence that Flynn was fired for lying, will all the liars resign?

Who will be left?
