A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands. The women
were asked, “How many of you love your husband?” All the women raised their hands. Then they were asked,
“When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?” Some women answered today, a few
yesterday, and some couldn’t remember.
The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband – “I love you, Sweetheart” Next
the women were instructed to exchange phones with one another and read aloud the text message they
received in response to their message.
Below are 11 hilarious replies. If you have been married for quite a while, you understand that these replies are
a sign of true love. Who else would reply in such a succinct and honest way?
1. Who the hell is this?
2. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick or what?
3. Yeah, and I love you too. What’s wrong?
4. What now? Did you wreck the car again?
5. I don’t understand what you mean.
6. What the hell did you do now?
7. Don’t beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need.
8. Am I dreaming?
9. If you don’t tell me who this message is actually for, someone will pass out.
10. I thought we agreed you wouldn’t drink during the day.
11. Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn’t she?
Bloomberg Businessweek) — For a little while earlier this year, it seemed as though 87-year-old Rosie Thomas and her neighbors in the small town of Gainesville, Va., had beaten Amazon. Virginia’s largest utility, Dominion Energy Inc., had planned to run an aboveground power line straight through a Civil War battlefield—and Thomas’s property—to reach a nearby data center run by an Amazon.com Inc. subsidiary. After three years of petitions and protests in front of the gated data center, skirmishes punctuated by barking dogs and shooing police, Dominion agreed to bury that part of the line along a nearby highway, at an estimated cost of $172 million.
Within a month, however, the utility and state legislators had passed on the cost to Thomas and her fellow Virginians. The state’s House of Delegates approved Dominion’s proposal to raise the money needed for the Amazon line with an as-yet-unannounced monthly fee. “Lord, have mercy,” Thomas said when a neighbor gave her the news this spring in the gravel driveway of her one-story clapboard home, where she was watching the metal disk spin inside the electricity meter on the side of the house. She was already struggling to pay her monthly $170. Leaning forgotten against Thomas’s mailbox was an old protest sign that read “UNPLUG Amazon Extension Cord.” It no longer felt like a trophy.
This sort of thing is becoming a pattern. Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud computing business, is its fastest-growing and most profitable division, but it comes with a lot of upfront infrastructure costs and ongoing expenses, the biggest of which is electricity. Over the past two years, Amazon has almost doubled the size of its physical footprint worldwide, to 254 million square feet, including dozens of new data centers with vast fields of servers running 24/7. In at least two states, it’s also negotiated with utilities and politicians to stick other people with the bills, piling untold millions of dollars on top of the estimated $1.2 billion in state and municipal tax incentives the company has received over the past decade.
Other companies, including Google and Tesla Inc., have taken advantage of the power industry’s hunger for growth and the relative secrecy that followed its 1990s deregulation in dozens of states. But Amazon stands out for its success in offloading its power costs and also because it dominates America’s cloud business, which has gone from nonexistent to using 2 percent of U.S. electricity in about a decade. “Amazon had a huge advantage, because there weren’t a lot of other sectors growing in the electricity market,” says Neal Elliott, senior director of research at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a green lobbying group. The company has also ratcheted up the secrecy around who’s paying for electricity, says environmental advocate Greenpeace, which calls Amazon the single biggest obstacle to industry transparency. Amazon declined to comment for this story.
Tech Giants Google and Facebook are purging conservative content from their platforms — They are hiding conservative stories on Google — They are shadow-banning conservative news on Facebook and Twitter.
In February Facebook launched a new algorithm to ensure that conservative news would not spread on the social media platform.
The algorithm change caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.
In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement.
Top conservative Facebook pages with daily traffic in the millions have seen 75% to 95% drop in traffic since the 2016 election.
Young Cons, Western Journalism, SarahPalin.com, Independent Journal Review, Right Wing News, and several others have seen dramatic loss in traffic.
The Gateway Pundit saw a significant drop in Facebook traffic in the last two years.
This is criminal behavior. They take your money for advertising then shadow-ban your site.
This is the definition of a scam.
Meanwhile, liberal sites are doing fine this year.
Google also deleted several top Conservative channels in 2018.
Conservative YouTube channels were deleted in a Google purgein March.
Google later said they “accidentally” deleted conservative channels.
During the election conservatives fled the corrupt mainstream media and went online to get their news from trusted websites.
Today far left tech giants want conservative sites eliminated.
The left is even targeting the advertising and income of conservative websites.
It’s time to regulate Google and Facebook!!!!

Here is a list of top conservative websites that have been blacklisted and targeted by Google, YouTube and Facebook.

Too late, they can’t put the genie back in the bottle.

Donald Trump is a divisive, unpopular president. Throughout 2018, his disapproval rating has remained above 50 percent, sometimes topping his approval rating by more than 16 points.
GOP voter enthusiasm is lagging, independents want to see a Democratic-run Congress by a margin of 20 points, and the D.C. press corps hammers the president relentlessly.
Given this unprecedented opportunity for the midterms, it seems like all the Democratic Party has to do is sit back, remain calm and not screw this up.
President Trump is known to charge up his supporters at his pro-wrestling-style rallies, but the fact that he even exists charges up his critics even more. Whether it’s a bizarre tweet, an offensive comment or just an abrupt change in White House personnel, many Democrats have come unglued.
To be fair, it’s hard to blame them.
Two years ago, they held the most powerful bully pulpit in the world and seemed headed for an easy return to the White House.
For many, the shock of the November 2016 election is yet to be processed; a strange bug in The Matrix that needs to be fixed so the country can get back to the presumed norm of Democratic ascendancy.
But in overreacting to this strange presidency, their prospects for the November 2018 elections could dim. Despite the predictions of a mammoth blue wave washing over Congress, there are troubling signs for Team Donkey.
A Gallup poll this week discovered that, for the first time, Democrats have a more positive image of socialism than they do of capitalism. Fifty-seven percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaners support the state-run economic system, while just 47 percent support free enterprise.
Did these people fall asleep in history class during the lectures about the Soviet Union and the Khmer Rouge? Miss the past few years of Venezuelans unable to find medicine, milk or toilet paper? Forget that just last month, Nicaraguan strongman Daniel Ortega shot up a bunch of university students in a church?
Socialism has never worked and never will, but the majority of Democrats want to give it another shot.
To show how far out of the mainstream this is, Americans as a whole support capitalism over socialism by nearly 20 points. The Democrats think the reverse by 10 points.[…]
Mainstream Democrats understand how loony this kind of talk sounds to most Americans. Yet by embracing DSA candidates like Ocasio-Cortez, they will tie their ailing party to theories that would be laughed off a university quad.
As Bernie Sanders proved, it isn’t just the young candidates donning the socialist label.
The GOP is hitting Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous with his recent quote, “go ahead, call me a socialist.”
In New York’s race for governor, candidate Cynthia Nixon said, “Republicans are going to call us socialists no matter what we do, so we might as well give them the real thing.”
One last data point from that Gallup poll: Only 39 percent of respondents said they had a positive view of the federal government.
Perhaps voters should mull that over before handing those wizards in Washington even more power over our economy.
On Sunday, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said John Brennan’s rhetoric is becoming an issue.
“John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” Clapper said in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
James Clapper was responding to a NYT op-ed former CIA Director John Brennan penned a few days ago wherein he claimed Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.
Brennan isn’t handling his security clearance being revoked by President Trump too well–he’s fuming!
Brennan’s op-ed drew a huge backlash even from people who aren’t supporters of President Trump.
Surprisingly, Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) released a statement slamming John Brennan’s claims in his NYT op-ed that President Trump’s campaign colluded with a foreign power.
Director Brennan’s recent statements purport to know as fact that the Trump campaign colluded with a foreign power. If Director Brennan’s statement is based on intelligence he received while still leading the CIA, why didn’t he include it in the Intelligence Community Assessment released in 2017?” Senator Burr said in a statement.
Senator Burr continued, “If his statement is based on intelligence he has seen since leaving office, it constitutes an intelligence breach. If he has some other personal knowledge of or evidence of collusion, it should be disclosed to the Special Counsel, not The New York Times.”
“If, however, Director Brennan’s statement is purely political and based on conjecture, the president has full authority to revoke his security clearance as head of the Executive Branch,” Mr. Burr concluded.
Brennan also routinely attacks President Trump from his Twitter account, at one point claiming President Trump’s Helsinki Summit with Putin was “treasonous.”
Brennan is completely unhinged and his nonstop attacks and anti-Trump bias further prove he weaponized the intel agencies to target Donald Trump.
Both Clapper and Brennan have perjured themselves; they both promoted Hillary’s phony dossier and are panicking as the truth slowly comes out.

Pro-abortion Portland residents can now enjoy a brand-new custom, abortion-themed flavor of ice cream, “Rocky Roe v. Wade” at a series of NARAL-sponsored ice cream socials designed to foment “resistance” to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon has partnered with What’s The Scoop, a Portland area ice-cream parlor, to create the custom abortion-flavored ice cream.
If you’re not based in Portland, don’t worry! You can still get your pint of Rocky Roe v. Wade shipped directly, according to Grayson Dempsey, NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon’s local leader. Sadly, though, if you order your ice cream online, you won’t have the honor of having your Rocky Roe v. Wade scooped by bona fide abortion superstars.
Order your pints online between August 13-26. Pick up your pints between September 13-21 at What’s the Scoop?, 3540 N Williams Ave. NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon staff and volunteers will be on hand on September 13th from 5:00-8:00 and we’d love to see you there.

A few years ago, my little brother replaced his old picture tube TV with one of them fancy new flat screen TVs. He took the old TV out to his front yard near the curb and hung a “Works! Free to good home” sign on it. That TV sat there for 3 days and he got tired of looking at it, so he took the free sign off and replaced it with a “For Sale, $50” sign.
It was ‘stolen’ within 15 minutes.
