Everybody knows that HP consistently makes one of the best computer printers.  We also know that they charge an arm and a leg for their refill cartridges.  Those of us who use our printers a lot cringe every time we have to purchase more cartridges, so we instinctively look for ways to cut those costs.  We get cartridges refilled or we purchase off-brands.  

When we install a refilled or off-brand cartridge, we usually get a warning.  Well, HP has decided that if you are going to use their printers, you're going to have to do it their way... or else.  From now on, instead of the warning message, your printer will just shut down and you'll be toast.  That's right: you may own the printer, but you don't own the right to use at as you wish.   Like it or not, if you want to print, you're going to have to pay the premium and purchase only their cartridges.  Of course, the logical next step is that when you update the software for "security" reasons in your existing printer, that'll produce the same result when you go to replace cartridges: unless it's a genuine, new HP cartridge, you're not going to be printing anything soon.

It'll be a cold day in hell before I ever do business with HP again.

Well, I surely don't think that Hillary won.  She made many statements that were soooo off the wall.  To have the unmitigated gall to suggest that the "deal" with Iran was the greatest thing since sliced bread is beyond ludicrous.  I honestly think she was so pumped up on uppers and other medications  that she was "spacey," as exemplified by her silly smile.  

On the other hand, I don't think Trump won it, either.  He had several chances to drive home the fact that she is not fit to be president and to dwell on her emails and foundation, but he didn't.  I also felt that she got under his skin more than once, not that she doesn't deserve it... but, not in a public forum.  

So, I guess there were no winners and, therefore, no losers.  Frankly, for some reason the whole debate left me kind of blah.

I need to let the evening soak in a bit, but my initial reaction is... Hillary is beyond delusional.

1. The Democrats were against the abolition of slavery and against the Civil Rights movement. 
2. Neither Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton give a rat's behind about anybody who is not in their circle of friends or on their level of "intellectual elitism."  They don't care about Native Americans, Hispanics, Whites or Blacks, except when it comes to election time.  

We have a problem in this country that has been festering for decades.  The unemployed, the impoverished, the disenfranchised... of any color... are justifiably angry.  They are striking out at authority figures in the elitist government of ours, and uniformed cops surely represent the authority they have come to despise. 

Change needs to start in the election booth.  I don't care if you're raising hell at Standing Rock or in the streets of Charlotte; right now, that seems to be the only way you are going to be heard.  And, if I were one of them and really wanted things to be better for me, I'd be damned if I'd vote for a Democrat.

I don't care what you say or think.  I say this country is in one helluva mess... from San Bernardino to Orlando to New York City to Dallas to Ferguson to Baltimore to Charlotte to Tulsa to Congress to the White House to unemployment to the Clinton Foundation to North Korea to the borders to Iran to the South China Sea to I.S.I.S... on and on the list grows. 

Somebody has to fix it, and it sure as hell isn't going to be Hillary Rodham Clinton, because she's right smack dab in the middle of all of it.

First came the story that the Obama administration has mistakenly granted 850 illegal aliens citizenship.  Then came word that as many as 1,000 more may have "mistakenly" been given citizenship in 2014.  And, now the real story finally comes out.  

The orders of the day are that immigration officials are to process and grant citizenship to as many aliens as possible before the November elections, even if they have to work overtime to do it.    Presumably, as soon as the new citizens are sworn in, they are marched over to a table where they register to vote as Democrats.  

You get the picture.
