Police Brutality

Submitted by ub on Fri, 06/05/2020 - 08:59

There is a clear distinction between peaceful protesters and violent thugs. Also between peaceful cops and police brutality. According to studies recently released, police violence is a leading cause of death for young men in the United States. Sick and tired protesters continue to express frustration with the pace of policing reforms in USA cities.

Whenever anyone utilizes technology they must now the risks involved. No form of electronic communication can be considered 100 percent safe from any and all observers. Make sure you have a plan about what you'll do if the wrong person finds out you made contact as a whistleblower.

Do not contact anyone from your work computer or phone. Your bosses can track your use of these devices. The same goes for your personal mobile phone if you've ever installed apps from your employer even if you later uninstalled them.

A Folly of Failures

Submitted by ub on Tue, 05/26/2020 - 06:19

History will record a folly of failures that could have prevented the global pandemic which has killed so many innocent humans. The lack of leadership and sincerity for five dangerous days in PRC followed by five long and devastating weeks in the USA.

While I was working for the second wave of the late and great Reagan Bush Republican administration, there was a phrase that President Ronald Regan subscribed to, but Trump never did because he has trusted the Communists way too much.

Memorial Day 2020

Submitted by ub on Mon, 05/25/2020 - 09:10

It is no coincidence that I began my day this morning by wearing the USA flag on my chest to pay tribute to all members of our military who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Democracy and the many freedoms we enjoy today.

Did you know that Memorial Day goes as far back as the American Civil War in the 1860s? Formerly known as Decoration Day, it occurs every year on the last Monday of the month of May and is the day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Can We Get A Witness?

Those in the know say the signs are pointing to US Senators giving POTUS another pass and cutting him loose, so It appears that America’s goose is cooked by Russia.

Is the American dream, over and has it turned into a Russian nightmare? Is it time to stop looking back at what we were and start dealing with who we have become? When will US Taxpayers confront the painful truths that we've been conned with a neutered press, corrupt politicians, and captive electorate?

Social Security Fraud

Submitted by ub on Sat, 09/07/2019 - 23:13

If you are one of many Americans who like me, friends and neighbors have been receiving so-called Robocalls claiming to be from Social Security, do yourself a real favor and do not engage with these crooks, or call them back.

Public safety officials are warning the public’s that If you receive a call from someone claiming to represent the Social Security Administration, it's wise to be wary.

US Homeland Security?

What's up with a balance of powers and the oath? "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Will GOP Cut Social Security?

Submitted by ub on Wed, 10/17/2018 - 09:47

The Republicans partied too hard when they gave all those tax cuts to the rich, despite warning this would definitely happen to US.

Corporate welfare mastermind and Republican Senator Mitch McConnell rejects abolition of unpaid for subsidies, handouts, giveaways and bailouts to big businesses, including his Koch brother paymasters. He is calling for desperately needed Social Security and Medicare "entitlements" and the American public has to stop the GOP from doing this to you and me.

WH Security Clearance

Submitted by ub on Fri, 02/23/2018 - 05:37

Starting today, White House employees who have had access to classified information under temporary security clearances will have them revoked.

A security clearance is a US Government determination for access to classified information. The term “eligibility for access” means the same thing as security clearance and is used in record systems and by personnel security specialists.

This move s part of a security overhaul in the wake of the Rob Porter domestic abuse allegations, which applies to employees for whom background investigations have been pending since June.
