Off-Topic / Re: Live surveys that pay more
« on: Today at 09:10:30 am »Message ID: 1327163
I have done several of those.  They usually pay between $35 and $50.  I done one once that lasted a month.  It was 15 minutes each week.  And at the end paid $100.  I was not sure it would pay but figured I would take a chance.  I got paid for it as soon as the last week was finished.

It's good to see something being done.  Their punishment will not be snuffed out with a knee on the neck until dead. Even if your record reaches around the USA there is no reason to suffocate a person.  Let a judge and jury decide.

It is not that simple. There are things being released that should not be but are going to be used in the trial.  I am curious if he is found not guilty of murder and even not guilty of man slaughter are you going to accept that.  Because a judge and jury decided? Even if he is found guilty of just manslaughter he is looking at 20 years but I don't think a lot of people will accept that. Something I read this morning was saying if he was found guilty of 2nd degree he would be looking at max of 40 years.  Which basically would be the rest of his life.

I rarely comment on any social media accoubts.  I signed up on FB years ago to keep in touch with my brother in Florida and my friend in Greece.  People have changed drastically over the years and sadly not for the better.  Because someone doesn't agree with you, or you don't like what they said,or just don't like the person you find ways to try to get them fired.  Seriously, is your life so fxxked that's what you do?  I have seen things on Facebook that people post and I can't believe it.  I want to shake them and say are you that stupid?, but I guess that's the way the world is now 😢

Apparently most people's are. That is what I was saying. I don't get it. I mean if you go in to that place of business and somebody said something insulting TO YOU then that is totally different. But what you do when you are not at work is none of your boss' business. Kind of like you wear a tee shirt that some may find offensive. Some idiot takes your picture and sends it to your boss asking that you are fired for wearing a shirt they did not like to Walmart on your day off.  And you end up losing your job because it is shared all over the internet and everybody jumps on board.  Kind of like that Bugs Bunny clip where all these dogs are jumping up and down on Bugs.  (bugs actually is on top of the pile but irrelevant to my point) He is jumping up and down singing "dog pile on the rabbit".  And that is basically what it is.  Everybody jumping in something that does not even concern them trying to cause someone to lose everything they have.

    I think the problem is individuals realize how much they have been inadvertently given and they are exercising it to get what they want. This reminds me a story a comedian, Bill Burr, said in one of his stand up specials. A woman walks into a restaurant/bar and sees a joke about a wife beater and tells the waitress/hostess to take it down. It wasn't so she proceeds to complain about it to the point where both manager and the waitress/hostess get fired. I guess it was financially better to fire and replace these people than risk a potential lawsuit by pathetic snowflake.

That is a big part of it I guess.  If I own a business no one is going to bully me in to bowing to their wishes. If you are offended you can either not look at it or not go in that business. I see a lot of things that I think are offensive.  I have never tried to get anyone fired.  And some do not stop at just trying to get the person fired but in the case of like the nurse trying to get her license pulled as well.  And legally they could not do that because she did not break any laws.  She got in to an argument with a random idiot online.  An idiot who was also slinging slurs.  But only HER comment was shared with the public. Maybe I am the only one who looks for all sides before making a decision.

There was a video on twitter of a car that stopped and the driver got out and went after protestors.  People were calling for his blood.  BUT if you see the whole video and not the edited "oh poor me" version.... the protestors started it.  They threw something and his his vehicle.  He was not bothering anyone.  Just driving down the road. Trying to get where he was going.

Off-Topic / Re: George Floyd a 'violent criminal'
« on: Today at 08:50:38 am »Message ID: 1327155
Regardless of his criminal record, He should not have been kill with a knee to his neck.  Police officers should be held responsible for their crimes like all other "Criminals". When he stopped "resisting" the knew should have come off. 

I admire officers jobs, and I know they get to arrest the worse of the worse, but 1 thing is to restrain other is to kill, premeditated or not.  Some of the officers already had history of violence and should not have stayed as officers.

So no the fact the George Floyd had a criminal does not give an excuse to kill him like they did.

I do not approve the violence and rioting that is going around but I do believe that the justice system needs to change, there is too much discrimination and racism in this country.  And even when I know many of you are not going to agree with me, it needs to stop at the top, with our President.

Were you okay with the racist comments that came from the last president? He is the one who started all this. When he left office this country was more divided than ever.  Maybe people need to start making their own mind up and stop listening to the media.

George Floyd a 'violent criminal' he's been involved in three police shootings



Hi! :D :)

Yes I believe what was done to George Floyd was very wrong. He should still be here and all the protest should have never been. However no one know for certain it was a race issue. When someone say they can't breath listen and get off their neck no matter there color. We all should move away from racism and take each other as is. :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:

When he said he could not breathe they should have listened to him. Depending on which source you listen to one autopsy said he had a heart attack.  Which would cause trouble breathing.  Even if they thought he was lying they should have listened. Call paramedics and then take him on to jail after he is checked out.  If he was already cuffed then why not just sit him in the back of the car or go on to the jail. I do not think his intention was murder. It is clear from previous incidents he was a bully.  I think that is what he was doing this time as well.  Things just went too far. But I do not think he set out to kill the man.  Esp not in front of a huge crowd and with multiple videoing.

Something I read said that cops in that city are trained to basically use excessive force.

Also the other 3 cops - none of them were white.  SO that kind of throws the whole racist thing out the window.

That's not true. One of them is Hmong, one is white, and I'm not sure about the third - he has an Asian last name, but he looks mixed race to me. Anyway, are you saying only white people can be racist against blacks? I'm not saying any of them are (or not), but racism goes in all directions.

It IS true.  OR the article on yahoo and msn is lying.  I am not saying anything.  Dang people twist everything. I have said multiple times racism goes in every direction and been attacked multiple times for that statement. Are you saying only blacks get discriminated against?  It goes in every direction. But if you listen to the protestors that is what they seem to be saying.  They are just as racist when they attack a random white person just because they are white.  And that has happened a lot over the past few days.   :(

And FYI I did not get my info from looking at the skin of the 3 men.  I actually READ the article where it told what the races were.  NONE of the 3 are listed as being white.  Only the one that was arrested first.

I didn't know that. I always knew they can add charges but I didn't know they can increase the severity of a charge.

I did not think they could.  Once formal charges are brought.  IT could be different by state.  That is why the local guy was charged with 1st and 2nd degree murder.  They wanted a 1st degree charge but did not think it would stick so they charge with 2nd also hoping at least he gets that. But if they could get a more serious charge they wanted that.

I believe that if the evidence supports an increased charge in the minds of the prosecution, they can increase the charge.  New evidence is often found and interpreted during the investigatory phase which goes on until the trial begins.  Even then, new evidence can be introduced if relevant.

I guess I was thinking after the trial starts. Just going by a trial here locally. The guy killed one woman. But was charged with both 1st and 2nd degree for one act. I don't think they can change the charges after the trial starts. Add charges but not change it. Idk. It could also depend on the state.  Different states have different laws.  Just like different states have different ages at which you are legally an adult. Some are 19 instead of 18. I did not know that until a few years ago.

Update: Charges upgraded to unintentional 2nd degree murder

Also the other three cops were charge with aiding and abetting. I really hope they know what they're doing and have enough evidence for this. I'm afraid of the consequences for all of us if this falls apart at trial.

The thing with this - a lot of people are commenting online on news stories saying it would have been better to leave it like it was because they had a better chance of getting a guilty verdict. Lot of people are thinking they won't be able to get a guilty on 2nd degree.  And if he is found not guilty he walks away.  Free and clear.  They can't come back and charge him again.

Also the other 3 cops - none of them were white.  SO that kind of throws the whole racist thing out the window.

I don't really think it matters how the trial turns out I think the things going on will continue.  And the trial will likely not be for several months.  Most times it is at least a year or so with any one else.

I currently don't even see TAP listed on my survey page. Is it just me? Fortunately, I managed to do another survey through a different provider to earn my daily 5 cents.

It is not on the survey page.  Look under "Earn Cash" if you do not see it there click on the "repeat daily" or how ever it words it.

I agree. A lot of investigations at my day time job are made so much easier by people that like to share their life on twitter, linked in, FaceBook, and google. Sometimes it is the attached friends that are able to provide direction on where people are going and what they are doing. Everyone involved in investigations at work has a second account set up with all of the large social media outlets so that they cannot be tracked when looking into the histories of alleged wrong doers.Even with all of the sophisticated software that our company has access to, due diligence is generally performed by searching people's social media accounts.I have a minimal 'real' social media presence because I am a very private person and never want my family to be exposed. Rowr to DonnaMarg?!?

I think you missed what I was saying. I am not talking about people who basically tell on themselves when they are breaking the law.  Like people who film themselves torturing animals.  That seems to be a big thing right now.  I am talking about as in the example I gave above a woman who is a nurse, and lives in a state that does not require masks, stated that she did not think people needed to wear a mask.  So some crybaby snowflake that is scared to death starts sending stuff to her place of employment trying to get her fired.  That is what I don't understand.  But seeing comments every where all over the internet it makes sense.  People are vile and vindictive. It just did not make sense to me. You don't agree with what somebody said so you try to get them fired from their job?

And just because you think you find something on social media does not mean it is the same person's account.  There can be more than one person with the same name.  Or even a fake account.  Somebody made a fake account on facebook with my aunt's name and profile pic.  Then started sending all the family friend requests.

Anyway, I just wondered if others are seeing this. I don't do Facebook and what social media I do participate in I don't put personal info out there. Twitter I just mostly follow stuff.  Comment every now and then.

Off-Topic / Re: My Sneaky Cat
« on: Yesterday at 11:15:51 am »Message ID: 1327043
Cats are so interesting. We do not have one though as I am allergic.

I am like you in respect to cats.  I am allergic, and to some, my experience is that I can be highly allergic.  Others, at times, not nearly so much.  For example, my youngest daughter and her husband acquired a Maine Coon about 2 years ago and I seem to be able to tolerate it pretty well.  However, the home environment might be helping.  They have no carpeting and their furniture is all leather. I don't think these surfaces "absorb" and hang onto the allergens.


My cousin's wife is so allergic she cannot even walk in to a house that has a cat in it.  I guess you could get one of them hairless cats if you really wanted a cat.  But I think they look a little scary.

Off-Topic / Re: New Washer/Dryer
« on: Yesterday at 11:13:27 am »Message ID: 1327042
I bought a new washer and dryer about 4 years ago.  I bought Maytag, and replace Maytag washer and dryer which were about 20 years old.  Mine does not have an agitator so I can wash big items in it.  The only thing I hate is you canít stop the washer easy once itís on.  My old one all I had to do was open the lid.  On this one it locks and you have to hit a button for 3 seconds and it will stop but it still takes about 5 minutes until you can open the lid.

lol Well I know someone who did not know that trick.  They kicked the breaker to get it to stop. I don't like the locking lids. Mine does not lock. You do know why they started doing that don't you? Some kid drowned in a washing machine. I am not sure how that is even possible as it was a pretty good sized kid.  IT was a few years ago.
