Zoom question...

Anybody staying abreast of the changes on the Zoom app? I can no longer get to the camera from settings. The icons are gone. It was such a streamlined and easy to use tool. But like most things on the internet, they screw with it til you pull all your hair out.

Anybody know with the new version - still basic - if you can get to the camera setting?

Just read QE2 to miss her own Jubilee.

I wanted to share that I went, by myself, to the Queen's Trooping of the Color when she road by on horseback. I was close enough to note her red cheek complexion. Possibly displaying what is referred to "an English Rose". This was 1973. How time flies!

She looked like this...

Stranger Things 4

Am up to episode 4. It's gruesome, scarry, often over the top, spiced with humor and thoroughly engrossing. And as it takes place in 1986, we're dealing with some nasty Russians.

On Nertflix.

Yikes! ActBlue alert

Just checked my Amex bill and was charged $500 by ActBlue rather than - I assume - a $5 submission.

This is the first time in its existence I had this happen. Anybody else?

Pointless to guilt Repubs on gun laws. Talk to Police...

Biden is signing exec order on police reforms. Police want gun laws. Especially BANNING ASSAULT WEAPONS. Partner up on this one issue - reinstate the ban!! Bring Back Sanity!!

It's election time. It will be the perfect way to prove we care and gain votes. The police care. Republicans care. Only the politicians don't care.

Make this a crusade to get assault weapons out of the hands of domestic terrorists.

George Carlin documentary on HBO.

Watched last night. It's an excellent, yet painful telling of his life's story.

His brother Patrick was featured in the doc. He died last month.

I saw Carlin in person just one time in 1999. He was an equal opportunity insulter. And he laid into the left for actually trying to do what he complained wasnt being done. Especially over the Environment. Too bad he didn't live to see Obama elected. In my mind had he died 1/21/09, he'd have been more at peace.

Democrats must tap into price gouging by the "GOP Oil Industry".

We know price gouging at the pump drives prices up everywhere. Not everyone else does though. That dirty energy resource has more money than God and uses much of it to lobby and support Republicans.

Dems need to focus on the fact that they can fix or hurt our economy at their whim and project that to voters. We need laws to hold gougers in check. And maybe this in tandem with personal choice could be a call to elect Dems to get progressives on the SCOTUS as well as lower courts.

IMHO Chuck Schumer should drive these issues into the mainstream. And Biden should bring serious attention to to these harmful entities - oil industry and SCOTUS.

Do it Dems!!

"The United States Supreme Court appears poised to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling and end abortion rights in many states, but one columnist argued the Senate isn't powerless to stop what amounts to a tyrannical move.

The 5-4 decision drafted by Justice Samuel Alito would allow many states to criminalize abortion and severely undermine privacy rights under the 14th Amendment, which would expand government power into Americans' personal lives and endanger a number of basic liberties -- and Congress should take immediate action, argued Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin."

"Let’s throw out the term ‘culture wars.’ This is religious tyranny."
