      We have dozens of maples but our leaves turn sort of a putrid yellow, then brown and that’s about it. We miss the colors, I remember as a little kid picking up the maple and chestnut leaves…then again, ya gots what ya gots and we have a super green-up in spring.

    Hot rods for Kool April Nights, always seems to rain though,
    the Rodeo in May, which is actually a quite fun, small and intimate affair,
    and tonight, the lighting of the Sundial Bridge in pink. Amazingly huge attendance and the weather is cooperating once again.

      I had read a biography about Frederick the Great, which led me to read the things I could find that he read and wrote. The geopolitical makes more sense to me than before. Since there are more nations than just us involved in the global governance scheme, I could understand Russia and/or China doing a preventive action. I think the most dangerous time will be between the election and new president’s inauguration. Obama could do anything at anytime that will set things off.

        Russia and China, like the US, are all for songle-point global governance as long as they are (singularly) doing the governing. China sure as hell doesn’t want non-Chinese telling them what to do, ditto Russia.
        Obama’s part of that 3rd world ‘feed off of someone else’ crew, why bother being an individual when you can bet part of a managed herd. Russia abd China have been closely watching and studying US military doctrine since the first Gulf War and both countries have developed sone interesting weapons systems to counter our systems and strategies. With resources now being redirected to the total care for imported fifth columnists there will be fewer develop bew weons systems. Irony of it is we may well end up with either/both of them being guarantors of what ‘freedoms’ we have left. Wonder what they’ll want in return?

    Loojs like the Apple doesn’t fall far from the family tree…though it could all hust be a big coincidence.
    Apple uses the religious dymbol of the primary religion of a given country to designate hospitals on Apple Maps. Seems that interested parties have noticed that while Apple Maps still uses a cross to designate hospitals in predominantly Christian countries and a stat and crescent in Moslem countries they have recently removed thevStar of David from all hospitals in their Israeli maps, replacing it with a stethoscope, a symbol used elsewhere to designate clinics.
    Apple core supporters will remember that Steve Job’s biological father was Moslem who grew up in Syria. I’m not saying that there’s a strain of antisemitism in the corp, far from it for legal reasons. I’m just pointing out that coincidence and that had Apple Maps have replaced the star and crescent designation on hospitals in Moslem countries all hell would have broken out. Strange…….

        Question I have is where this ‘BDS’ influence at Apple’s coming from. Is it an internal cultural thang, a marketing ploy catering to Moslem users, a sop thrown to the UN who’s becoming more antisemitic by the day, something the younger and less culturally dedicated nerds? If we start seeing Apple slooooooowly wiping Christian symbols off of maps and ignoring Moslem ones we’ll have a better idea.

          It very well could be coming from a single individual and was missed by quality control as something they don’t look for. Yes, it could just as easily be a product team or a directive come from upper management. Personally, I’d put money on one or two people did it, but people above agree so they don’t care.

              Technically speaking, assigning stethoscope symbol vs. the star of David probably takes 30 seconds, but it will take quite a while to propagate out to all the devices accessing the map and refreshing image cache stored on each device. Could be days or weeks from the consumer point view to correct depending upon how its setup.

    I’m hoping this will make them use the brain and heart God gave them and realize any abortion is murder, but she may have went too far last night with anyone who isn’t pure evil.

    The DNC and in turn Hillary’s campaign are claiming the E-Mail released from WikiLeaks is hacked.
    It’s actually in the best interest of the various companies involved with the creation and sales of personal technologies for that to be a false statement.
    If it’s true, it calls into question every security measure to come to market in the last 16+ years. It implies E-Verify, E-Sign, etc. all could (can) be hacked and falsified.

            Of course it’s a smokescreen, but Microsoft, IBM, VMware, Google, etc. have invested very heavily in rent/lease remote access computers (“the cloud”) and security is a big BIG issue for customers. If there is no way for a high profile target like Hillary to keep from getting hacked and having her E-Mail falsified while using the same technologies, well I would hate to have invested millions of dollars moving all the data of some company to the cloud where it can be hacked and I could be sued for untold millions.

      β€œWhen you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.” ~Ayn Rand (PatriotDreamer — CTH)

    Some food for thought. Maybe one of the reasons the GOPe is scared sh*tless about saying anything about those wikileaks emails that were hacked by the “russian” spies, is that if DT wins, they fear their emails were hacked and all kinds of h*ll could break loose. Thereby causing some like The Turtle (among many, I believe) to mysteriously decide to retire after his shenanigans come to light. Another thought – could Dr. Evil be behind this as well to try and create more instability within the greater institution of our gubmint, thus creating an opportunity to make some mo money. But then again, I buy a lot of foil. Nothing much surprises me anymore though.

    Woman Backtracks on Assault Claim After O’Keefe Video

    A woman who accused a Donald Trump supporter of punching her outside a Trump rally in North Carolina is backtracking after James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released video showing Democrat operatives claiming she was a trained activist.

    69-year-old Sharon Teeter of Asheville now says it is possible that 73-year-old Richard L. Campbell merely touched her accidentally, as his attorney had claimed all along.

    Originally, Harris told local ABC News affiliate WLOS, β€œHe stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me.” She also added a pointed, rhetorical question β€” namely, whether β€œpeople find a Trump supporter punching her in the face deplorable.”

    Now, however, Teeter is changing her story rather dramatically. She told WLOS on Wednesday that β€œit’s possible that he could have struck her with his backhand.”

No word on the races of the shooters or shootees but all of the apartment complexes in that area are overwhelmingly black occupied. We’re getting more and more shootings and murders in that area since Katrina changed the demographics. Making it very hard to rent ourbhouse out…maybe if we retrofit armor plate into the walls we can get a premium.
