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...

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!!!

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.

Debate & Discuss / RBG

As if we needed any extra incentive to vote this year, the next 40+ days leading up to the election (and the few months afterward, depending upon whether Trump or Biden wins) has just gotten 1,000 times more interesting. With the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, God rest her soul, the tone and focus of the November election is going to take a significant change. Prior to her death, I knew there was a good chance that her seat on the court would become vacant during the next Presidential term - which greatly impacted my vote in November. Now that she has died before that next term, it solidifies the need to re-elect Donald Trump (or conversely - makes it that much more important for many others with different belief systems to make sure that Trump does not get re-elected).

But there is a strong likelihood that Trump makes a nomination to fill her seat and the Republican majority Senate moves forward with confirmation hearings. My personal prediction [hope] is that Amy Coney Barrett is nominated sometime in the next week or two by Trump and sworn in sometime before the next inauguration in January of 2021.

Regardless of how things progress, one thing is for certain. We are about to see new levels of hatred and venomous liberal attacks upon both Trump and his nominee. I pray for whomever her chooses that they have a thick skin and a strong family - neither of whom deserve the slander that is about to come their way.

Debate & Discuss / Vandalism - Pure and Simple
« on: September 15, 2020, 10:51:31 am »Message ID: 1339290
I was walking around my neighborhood this morning and along a main thoroughfare through town (overall a very liberal county in Ohio). I saw several Joe Biden yard signs and a few other local Democratic campaign signs. Some Biden sign locations had rainbow flags and some had references to Black Lives Matter or George Floyd. Others had no other political/social messages other than support for Biden.

Then I came across a yard that had two two-sided Trump/Pence campaign signs in the front yard. All four signs were vandalized with "BLM" spray painted over the sign:

I am far from undecided with my vote - which should be no secret here - so this in and of itself is not going to sway my decision. But stuff like this just makes me shake my head and if I was undecided, this kind of crap would definitely sway my decision in the direction of Trump. It is something so insignificant, yet speaks volumes. The mantra of the liberal left = "Free speech, opinions, and respect for others' property only matter if we are in agreement. If I oppose them, then I can disregard and vandalize to my heart's content." This is a microcosm of the BLM riots and vandalism.

Last fall we had a local "politician" (I use that term very loosely as he was also a convicted rapist of an under age girl and a deadbeat who has been dodging many monetary civil legal judgments pending against him) who had somehow been previously elected as a city commissioner. He was running for re-election and had many blind supporters, but also several detractors (including the editor of the local newspaper). I had a personal/professional beef with this guy and so I very much wanted to see him lose. Every time I saw one of his campaign signs, it made me sick to my stomach that he was trying to impose his will on local politics, but I refrained from taking any unlawful action against his lying campaign signs.

It turns out that this jerk filed police complaints against several people that he suspected (no proof - just his suspicions) had stolen or vandalized his campaign signs.

Knowing what I know of this guy, he would have been fully on board with the vandalism I photographed above, but was a whiny crybaby when he felt people were disposing his own signs. I thank God that he was not re-elected to serve on our city commission. I hope Joe and Kamala falter as well.

I also hope that the fella who placed the signs above has a Ring doorbell or some kind of security cameras at his house. Most likely the vandal cowards did this deed under the cover of darkness and will not be found or prosecuted. But here's hoping for some karma.

(Preface this post to let you know in advance it is just a joke and meant to be lighthearted fun - NOT SERIOUS).
 ;) :angel11: ;) :angel11: ;)
We've had our disagreements on various topics, but we usually try to be civil and friendly and even funny at times.

I happened to notice that TODAY is your one year anniversary of signing up to FusionCash. Congrats on that!
But also when I looked - you have 666 total posts at this moment, which is an ironic ominous number of posts to have ON your one year anniversary to say the least.

Please please respond to this with something to get you past that horrible post number!

FusionCash / Today in History
« on: August 17, 2020, 04:21:33 am »Message ID: 1336289
I very rarely click on them, but today while doing my daily PTC on FusionCash I clicked on a link in the "Today in History" section where they list notable/celebrity births and deaths, etc. Basketball player Eddie Griffin died on this date in 2007. However, the link on the FC Today in History page links to the wrong Eddie Griffin.
 ::) ::) ::)
I seem to recall one of the handful of other times I clicked on a link here a few years ago - the same thing happened - they linked to the wrong wikipedia page of a person who shared the same name.
 ::) ::) ::)
It's not a big deal, but how difficult is it to cite check your links? I know it's not necessarily Fusion Cash but more likely an outside source that provides the content details and links. Just shoddy half-assed research in my opinion. Thankfully, I am not relying on this source for my own important research, but simply as a curiosity/time-wasting task as my daily 15 rolls in.

Off-Topic / "Kamala" Harris dead
« on: August 15, 2020, 07:22:19 pm »Message ID: 1336165
Ironic that a day or two before Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris as his V.P. running mate, the former professional wrestler known by his wrestling persona "Kamala" (whose real name was James Harris) died.

I've heard a conspiracy theory or two out there (long before he even announced Kamala as his running mate) that Joe Biden died several months ago and that the Joe Biden we have seen in the press hiding out over that time frame was a stand-in/clone/actor/hologram, meant to just hold in place until election day and get elected - then in January, after a 'fake' inauguration, the fake Joe would fall ill and die paving the way for his V.P. to take over.

Mind you, I have zero belief in this conspiracy myself, but it just seemed ironic to me that James "Kamala" Harris dies right before Senator Kamala Harris was named VP running mate - which could signal in some obscure ironic way (to a crazy lunatic) that the conspiracy is somehow real...
