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>
Date: Apr 29, 2016 5:17 AM
Subject: Google AdSense: Action required to comply with AdSense program policies.
To: <adsense-noreply@google.com>

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.

Affected website:thoughtsandrantings.com

Example page where violation occurred:http://thoughtsandrantings.com/2012/11/13/digging-up-atwaters-corpse/

Action required:Please make changes immediately to your site to follow AdSense program policies.

Current account status:Active

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.

Ha! Lena Dunham Says, “If Trump Wins, I will flee to Canada!” Trump says, “Americans will thank me if she does!”

I have to confess, I laughed out loud, when I read this:

Via the Hill:

Lena Dunham is the latest celebrity to say she’ll hightail it out of the country if Donald Trump is elected president.

“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” Dunham told Andy Cohen at the Matrix Awards on Monday.

“I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”

Well, Donald Trump had an awesome response to that:

Not only would Donald Trump not mind if certain celebrities flee the United States upon his election, the Republican front-runner said Tuesday that their opposition to his candidacy only increases his will to win.

During a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked about a tweet from Lena Dunham on Monday in which she vowed to leave the U.S. for Vancouver if he is elected president.

Trump’s response: “Well, she’s a B-actor. You know, she has no — you know, no mojo.”

“I heard Whoopi Goldberg too. That would be a great thing for our country,” Trump said, as the show flashed a graphic of celebrities who it said would leave the U.S. for Canada, including Dunham, Jon Stewart, and Rosie O’Donnell, with whom the Manhattan real-estate mogul has feuded for years.

When co-host Steve Doocy pointed out that O’Donnell’s name on the list, Trump remarked, “Now I have to get elected.”

“Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country,” he said. “Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now.”

As you all know, I am not a fan boy of Donald Trump, and for some very good reasons. But, this…..this was awesomeness at it’s best. I really hope Trump does win; so that these liberal idiot twats really do leave our Country and take their European socialist horse manure ideals with them.

This, my dear friends, cannot happen fast enough.


Joe Walsh can go to hell

Yeah, I really, really liked Joe Walsh, until I saw this here.

Via CNN:

(CNN)For the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, the show must not go on.

The musician pulled out of a concert scheduled for July 18 in Cleveland, Ohio, after he said he learned of the show’s ties to the Republican National Convention.

“It was my understanding that I was playing a concert which was a nonpartisan event to benefit the families of American veterans on Monday, July 18 in Cleveland,” Walsh said in a statement he released Wednesday. “Today it was announced that this event is, in fact, a launch for the Republican National Convention.”

Walsh said he also discovered that his name would be used “to raise sponsorship dollars for convention-related purposes” and therefore he felt forced to withdraw from the event.

“I am very concerned about the rampant vitriol, fear-mongering and bullying coming from the current Republican campaigns,” Walsh said. “It is both isolationist and spiteful. I cannot in good conscience endorse the Republican party in any way.”

I thought Joe loved America. I guess not, needless to say, I’m done with him and his music. See ya Joe, thanks for the fish.

So Sad: Matt Mullenweg loses his Dad

Man, will the bad news please stop? So sad:

Matt with his Dad, Chuck

My father, Chuck Mullenweg, passed one week ago today. After over a month in ICU he had just been transferred to long-term acute care in a different hospital and we were looking forward to a tough but steady road to being back home when he took an unexpected and sudden turn. I’ve started and stopped writing this dozens of times since then and words continue to fail me.

Matt has also done a special page for his Dad too here.
