    It’s Time to Give Up on Apps

    It really is. Part of the problem is that these days, so many people use mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. I know I do – I love my phones and my tablets. I use them every day, sometimes all day (when I’m unemployed, that is). So we’re all used to using apps. Social networks that don’t have apps sadly don’t get as many users as those that do. Gab is an exception because of their notoriety (which is totally undeserved, no thanks to the asshole liars in the mainstream media). It has a huge userbase and is only growing,…

    Brief Site Update

    So I switched to a different “link share” plug-in that would allow you to share my posts to Parler, and while I found one that supports Parler (and MeWe) I don’t like how they don’t even have the logos of…

    So War It Is

    If you think I’m going to condemn the patriots that stormed the Capitol yesterday, leave now, because it isn’t happening. I will say that I wish they had stayed there and “occupied” the Capitol or some other area of DC…

    The Fall of Fox News

    So, the election hasn’t been decided yet, and the President is fighting to hold on to what he rightfully won last week.  Meanwhile, the mainstream media, including Fox News, has crowned Sleepy Joe as President-Elect. A lot of people on…

  • Pop Culture Crap

    Self-cancelling? Not quite.

    I know – it’s the day after the 2020 Presidential election, and I promised a post about it, but nothing much has happened, other than the Dems and the MSM calling certain states for Biden, and steadfastly refusing to call…

    Well, it’s finally here – Election Day 2020, a general election year, one in which we can choose to re-elect Donald Trump, or the vegetable the Democrats have been bringing out every now and then. You know, Joe Biden, who…
