Apparently evergreen trees are now symbols of systemic racism.


Someone please stop the world, I want to get off.

Off-Topic / OPEN REQUEST to Janesue
« on: March 08, 2021, 07:06:07 am »Message ID: 1352685
Hey Janesue,
Love your enthusiasm, but a little less enthusiastic with the volume of your posts! Is there any chance that you might tone down the frequency of your thread creation? You are literally burying dozens if not hundreds of worthwhile forum topics with each new nonsense post/poll that you create. Don't get me wrong, some of your topics have the potential to lead to meaningful discussion, but there is such a thing as overkill. Would you consider backing it down just a notch so that the rest of us have a chance to read and write as well? I'm not asking you to stop posting altogether.  :)

Debate & Discuss / Pledge of Allegiance
« on: March 01, 2021, 10:42:43 am »Message ID: 1352049
I just learned from my wife that out of maybe a dozen early and pre-teen girls in my daughter's dance class, that only our daughter and one other dancer (both of whom attend the local Catholic school) are able to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. None of the other girls (who all go to various public schools around the area) have any clue how it goes.


I'm not sure how or why this even came up - they obviously do not say the pledge at dance class, but you know how strange topics can arise among young kids...


Maybe I've been under a rock, but this revelation was shocking to me. I think it is absolutely horrible that these kids - born and raised in the United States - cannot recite the Pledge of Allegiance. And it is all due to the cancel culture and the mentality of keeping religion out of public schools - all because of the single phrase "One nation under God"...


Not surprising that just a few weeks ago the House Democrats also forbid reciting the Pledge before House Judiciary Committee meetings. This was in response to a Republican committee member's request that they show their collective bipartisan unity by reciting the Pledge before each meeting as a committee.  Nope! Sorry! Can't do it. Democrats in control would not allow it.  [[Joe Biden's pledge for unity sure was the biggest line of bullshit ever spouted by an incoming President]]

Off-Topic / Cracker Barrel's racist logo
« on: February 12, 2021, 08:06:29 am »Message ID: 1350697
Just one of the many "woke" revelations into the "systemic racism"  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)  rampant in our country.

Have you heard the latest effort to make something out of nothing by those who try their damndest to create racism where none exists (and in doing so, take away from the focus upon actual racism where it truly does exist).

There is now a claim circulating on Twitter that the company logo for Cracker Barrel where the K and the R loop around and connect to each other is meant to visually represent the shape of a whip as it is being lashed about just before striking its target with a brutal sting. A whip of course being a central image of the savagery of American slavery and therefore the Cracker Barrel logo is a literal sign of the "systemic racism" in America.

Going a step further, the name "Cracker Barrel" is allegedly a reference to a derogatory name for white people. One version (among many others which are very different explanations) of the origination of that slur comes from the name for the white slave owner cracking the whip.

So in the spirit of Uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima and Cream of Wheat, let's change the name of this "systemically racist" company to do our part in eliminating racism for all eternity - because changing names and logos is the only true way to change hearts.

Off-Topic / Superbowl Halftime Shows
« on: February 10, 2021, 05:12:14 am »Message ID: 1350536
Even before this most recent one, which left me wholly unimpressed... Am I the only one who wishes that the Superbowl would go back to its roots and bring back halftime performances from groups like the Grambling State University Marching Band? Or maybe bring in a dci drum corps champion.


Why do we need major (or in some cases minor) recording artists singing truncated versions of their overhyped songs in an effort to squeeze a full rock concert into a 20 minute window?
 ::)


Football halftime shows are made for marching bands, who IMO have much more talent, style, class, and entertainment value than almost any of these high profile acts that the Superbowl has been cranking out over the past few decades. It really is a shame that everything has to be commercialized and sensationalized.

Debate & Discuss / Joe Biden's Executive Orders
« on: February 01, 2021, 04:10:36 am »Message ID: 1349587
Joe Biden has been in office for nearly two weeks and has thus far signed 24 Executive Orders by my count. Among others, this includes one executive order which will provide US tax dollars to promote/provide abortions in other countries. Yes he still has refused to take any stance condemning the persecution of Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia.

Debate & Discuss / My thoughts on the Capitol violence
« on: January 11, 2021, 08:25:20 am »Message ID: 1348157
I've been debating back and forth since last Wednesday whether to comment on these issues and have started to write a response several times, only to change my mind and delete it. I am feeling motivation once again to type.

I have been a Trump supporter since day one, but I have also been critical of him when I thought it was warranted. This is one of those times. But my criticism is limited to the manner in which he reacted to the violence of last Wednesday in not immediately and harshly condemning it. He has since made different statements as has press secretary Kayleigh McEnany which were more appropriate to the situation.


I have to be critical of Trump here if I want to be 100% honest, objective, and fair - something that many of my Democrat countrymen still refuse to be themselves. On Wednesday, I lost a bit of respect for Trump due to the way that he first responded to the Capitol mob; I gained a huge amount of respect for the bulk of the Republican politicians who unconditionally condemned the Capitol mob; and I lost HUGE HUGE respect for Schumer, Pelosi, and they rest of those undeniable hypocrite D's for the way that they conditionally condemned some rioters and domestic terrorists while excusing others. (And just by the way, I did not realize prior to last Wednesday that I would be able to add more to my Republican respect jar, nor that it was possible to extract any more respect from my Democrat respect jar).


What happened on Wednesday was wrong and anyone who broke any laws should be put into prison. I don't even have a problem with some of those assholes getting a life sentence. What they did was 100% wrong and unwarranted.  Is Donald Trump to blame for their wrong actions? I personally don't believe so. He certainly got them riled up, but he did not command/control them. They had free will.  If Donald Trump is held responsible for their actions, then Bernie Sanders should be held responsible for the lunatic who shot up the Republican baseball practice nearly killing Steve Scalise. But I won't go there or open that can of worms...


No. Donald Trump's mistake in this series of events for which he absolutely deserves criticism and I am here to dish it out, is for not coming out more strongly against the anarchy.


But the exact same criticism should be leveled out against Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and all of the other lying self-righteous hypocrites who excused the Antifa and BLM rioters/anarchists/domestic terrorists in the Pacific Northwest (and throughout the country actually). There is no difference between the illegal acts of either mob. (Some will even argue that it was Antifa plants in the Capitol mob who actually initiated the breach with the mob mentality taking over others in the crowd. I am not going to address that conspiracy theory because it would not excuse the culpability of those who followed through with the anarchy).


In July, BLM and Antifa rioters/domestic terrorists, attacked and attempted to take over a Federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon. There were also violent riots and lootings throughout the country which resulted in death, destruction, and other mayhem. Take you pick of any Democratic political leader or mainstream media outlet and those rioters/anarchists/domestic terrorists were referred to as peaceful protestors (as media footage shows the arson), their violence was excused, and many celebrities donated millions of dollars for bail money of those who were arrested.


I respect Republican leaders who called out and condemned both groups as rioters/anarchists/domestic terrorists regardless of their political point of view or motivations. I have zero respect for Democratic leaders and mainstream media who excuse the violent acts of those who have the same political persuasion while vilifying the SAME violent acts committed by those who have an opposing viewpoint.


And - again - to be true to myself and to God and to my fellow countrymen, I do call out Donald Trump for failing to more harshly and immediately condemn those actions that the Capitol mob took on Wednesday. But I most certainly and definitely do not take back or negate any of my acknowledgement or praise of the MANY positive and good things that Donald Trump has accomplished over the past four years for the country that many people wrongfully refuse to give him any credit for.


ALL protests which cross over the line to the point of domestic terrorism/rioting/anarchy should be punished. The motivation or perceived political persuasion of the guilty parties or to whom they give their allegiance should have no bearing on how they are portrayed by the media or by [friend or foe] politicians.


In summary: Republicans (excluding Trump) acted highly honorably (as usual);
Democrats in general (and Pelosi, Schumer, and Biden in particular) acted despicably (as usual);
Trump (unfortunately, but admittedly) did not handle this situation well at all.

Off-Topic / Petition to Change the State Name of Indiana
« on: January 01, 2021, 05:20:42 pm »Message ID: 1347696
With the renaming of the Washington Redskins and the decision of the Cleveland Indians to change their team name AND the decision of Mississippi to change their racist state flag, I propose to the world that the State of Indiana is a racist, hateful and derogatory name. "Indiana" literally means "Land of the Indians" which is hateful and racist terminology that the woke world needs to focus their righteous indignation upon and impose change for the sake of change. Both the state and the state capital must be renamed in 2021 if we are really serious about the cancel culture mentality that we are moving toward at warp speed. Who would support an online petition to rename the racist state of Indiana to something more appropriate? And what would you call it?


Washington Football Team is already taken, so we will have to come up with something else. There is no time like the present, now that we are out of 2020 and turning over a new leaf - I propose that this should be out collective New Year's Resolution as a nation. Who's with me?

Offers / Non FC survey successes
« on: December 23, 2020, 11:55:17 am »Message ID: 1347233
I qualified for a survey through another app/site not related to Fusion Cash a few days ago. It was a typical survey, not a huge time commitment or special focus group - but it was limited to people who suffer from sleep apnea (which I do) and asked about daytime sleepiness and my own sleep apnea treatments. The survey took all of 10 minutes and paid $30. I took the survey on Saturday and had the payment credited to my email before Monday.

I sure wish FC still acted this way - even for the penny surveys.

Offers / Vehicle Goods Study
« on: December 22, 2020, 05:33:30 am »Message ID: 1347169
I have been having the most luck recently seeking out the surveys described as Vehicle Good Study - and generally listed as paying out 75 with an 8 minute estimated time.


First off, I have no idea who, how, or why they even list survey topics as the majority of the surveys have nothing to do with what the topic says, and don't even get me started on the time estimates (although to be honest - THESE listed surveys are typically pretty accurate when it comes to the time estimate). But I have never clicked this survey and taken a survey about vehicle goods.


No. This is the survey model where you watch about 8 or so TV commercials and use your mouse or keyboard to give real time positive or negative feedback as it plays, then you answer several questions about how much you would say you learned, if you think the company depicted is moving in a different direction, whether you would watch that commercial again if you saw it in the future, etc.


I like these because I know that they are not going to go on and on and on with the questions and I know that it is going to pay out if I get it started.

Off-Topic / Weather woes
« on: December 01, 2020, 08:20:10 am »Message ID: 1346089
We had the pleasure of spending Thanksgiving week with our daughter and son-in-law in their Florida coast location - we had several days lounging in the outdoor swimming pool at the house they rented for the week. I was going to post a photo or two of our last day there on Saturday when we visited the ocean beach with towering palm trees, but I don't have any pics without my wife or daughters' faces in them. But here is what we woke up to on Tuesday morning! Ugh... One extreme to the other in just a couple of days!

FusionCash / Donnamarg - not to beat a dead horse, but I think I was correct...
« on: October 20, 2020, 09:40:18 am »Message ID: 1342676
A few weeks banner not updated......Maybe.3 + months of $200?I dont think so.Im not pulling a CG with you to disagree.....thats just the way it looks to me...and with virus rampant in some of his earlier posts........If the banner goes back to  $ 2047 after 180 days he didnt claim it then.
I'm not trying to be difficult either, but I am telling you that my banner has consistently shown over the past several years that my earnings and receipt have been $86 off. It is not because I have earned $86 unclaimed - it is because the banner does not recalculate when surveys are initially awarded and then later rejected. It's not about the banner not being updated/caught up. From now until eternity (unless they make an adjustment to how the earning banners are coded), both mine and NRAJoe's banners are always going to have that discrepancy and neither of us have that much earned and unclaimed.If he hasn't been around since April, then we are already about 4 months in. Take a look again in October and even if he resurfaces in the meanwhile I guarantee that the amounts on his banner will still differ by $200 (or whatever NRAJoe's difference is).If I am wrong and his banner amounts reset due to six months of unclaimed earnings - I will eat crow and admit to all. But based on my own experience with my banner reports I know that is not the case. And I know this because I keep very accurate records of my earnings across all sites and it always bothered me that my public posted banner for Fusion Cash was not accurate and there was no way for me to force a reboot or reset or anything else to make it accurate.



So we wait till Oct to see if the lesser amount is ONLY amount.It would show he never received the $200.

I dont see how much of a hard-worker on this site just doesnt claim his money.

We are still about a week short of six months since we last heard from NRAJoe. It looks like his earnings banner still has the same discrepancy and doesn't reflect any forfeited earnings that have expired. So I think my previous reasoning and explanation were on point.

Debate & Discuss / Twitter and Facebook think that you don't deserve to hear this!!!
« on: October 15, 2020, 08:41:14 am »Message ID: 1342313

I posted a link yesterday in response to another thread about Joe Biden, but it was buried deep down in the thread and likely would not be seen by many since most people only read and respond to the initial post in any given thread...


That story yesterday involves Joe and Hunter Biden and their corruptive dealings with the Ukraine. The New York Post broke the story.


But the news has changed because Twitter and Facebook have been censoring and prohibiting the sharing of this news story on their platforms. The even blocked the New York Post from posting the story on its own social media feeds. Clearly a violation of free speech - trying to keep people from sharing this news in effort to suppress its dissemination.


Today, Twitter is also blocking a second story from the New York Post regarding Hunter Biden cashing in on a Chinese company. Both of these stories stem from Hunter Biden emails.


Because they cannot be shared on Twitter or Facebook, but still should be seen by the American voting public, I am sharing BOTH of those story links here. Feel free to read or ignore or dispute - I really don't care... but when big tech media is deciding for you whether you have access/exposure to the stories
that is a big problem!!!!!

Off-Topic / Sneezing etiquette
« on: September 24, 2020, 06:38:31 am »Message ID: 1340107
So the scenario is as follows: you're out in public, at the store or in an area with other people milling about and you have to sneeze. Are you supposed to pull your mask down and sneeze into you elbow/sleeve? Or are you supposed to sneeze into your face mask as it covers your mouse and nose?


I vote for uncovered into your elbow, but what with all the new rules and other people getting offended at mask removals, I wanted to see what others think.
