Amanda Carpenter sounds like a spiteful b*tch

You know, I supported this woman, when all that nonsense came out a while back and now that her candidate has lost, she puts out this below:

If there is one beautiful thing about Trump nearly securing the GOP nomination, it’s that no one owes him anything. Not a handshake. Not a congratulatory press release. Nada. Consider yourselves liberated. There’s no normal obligation to support Trump as the nominee. He has both policy and personality issues that make him unfit for the highest office in the land. – Source: Liberated by Trump

My response to this is: No one is obligated to believe that you were not screwing Ted Cruz either; but I do. Just sayin’ 😡

Ted Cruz supporters are such sore losers, kind of like Ted himself. :roll:

Good Article on Vaping

Before I cash in my chips and go to bed, I give you this to read:

If a new delivery-room procedure reduced deaths of mothers during labor by 95%, CNN and “60 Minutes” would do special hour-long tributes and the new technique would quickly become mandatory.

If a new safety gadget inside automobiles were demonstrated to reduced fatalities by 95%, it would be talked up as a miracle of the age and be installed in every car.And yet, years ago along came a device that reduces harm from smoking by 95%. The reaction has been silence at times, outright suppression at others. There have been plenty of lies to accompany this bizarre smear campaign.

If smokers switched to e-cigarettes, it would “prevent almost all of the harm from smoking,” Britain’s Royal College of Physicians stated this week, highlighting growing evidence in favor of e-cigarette use, or vaping. The RCP says it is “unlikely” that vaping is even 5% as dangerous as smoking — and may be substantially safer than that.

As someone who vapes and has had to listen to countless mindless morons say vaping is dangerous, this is a welcome article. Go read it, please. 🙂

A very good read….

This is something that I have been sort of saying myself, for a very long time. Glad someone finally wrote it:

Ronald Reagan swept to two landslide victories on the strength of his famous three-legged stool—economic conservatism, social conservatism and an internationalist, hawkish foreign policy. But the elements of the Reagan coalition have been drifting apart for some time, and the alliance now appears to be irretrievably fractured. – Source: The Reagan Coalition Is Dead.

Word to the wise to those using Google Adsense

I thought I would let everybody know that anybody that’s running Google AdSense and you’re a conservative, you should be really aware of your content.

I received this, this early morning from Google AdSense:

—— Forwarded message ———-
From: <adsense-noreply@google.com>

Subject: Google AdSense: Action required to comply with AdSense program policies.

Hello,This is awarning messageto alert you that there is action required to bring your AdSense account into compliance with our AdSense program policies. We’ve provided additional details below, along with the actions to be taken on your part.

Violation explanationn

HATE/ANTI: While Google believes strongly in the freedom of expression, we also recognize the need to protect the quality of the AdSense network for users, advertisers, and publishers.  As such, Google does not allow the monetization of hate speech or any other content that is intended to insult, offend or intimidate an individual or group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status.  This includes, but is not limited to content that:

  • uses derogatory racial or ethnic slurs to refer to an individual or group
  • encourages violence against women or men
  • contains racist or homophobic drawings or cartoons.

I guess Google AdSense is now cracking down on content. For the record, the content that was brought into question  was a quotation from an old Lee Atwater interview that I blogged about that a liberal publication quoted and apparently the n-word was contained in that interview and their robots saw it and sent me a warning.

I really hate to be forced into deleting content from my blog. but, I could really use the extra money that AdSense brings in. It’s not a lot, but, still it’s some sort of income. so I deleted the posting.

I really hope this doesn’t become an issue with them, because I would hate to have to drop Google AdSense it does generate an income and revenue for this blog and more importantly, me.

I guess Free Speech ain’t what it used to be in this country.
