The Ring Neighborhood

Posted in Uncategorized by idiotwebmaster on June 7, 2020

Do you have a Ring device? Do you subscribe or even care about the Neighborhood? You should. It is quite the entertainment. What should be used for information sharing and helping out your neighbors has become a joke to many users.

Look at the posts in your Neighborhood. I see many regarding helicopters. Someone will post there is a helicopter circling over such and such, what is happening? Then comes the flood of comments. Call you local PD non-emergency number and ask. Go outside and look. And, and occasional good reply stating they are looking for a missing person or a robbery suspect.

I see posts about warnings about cars being cased, or a vehicle was broken into. In many cases the vehicle in question was unlocked! A good reminder to lock your doors and keep valuables out of your vehicle or hidden. Common sense.

I love the posts of coyotes wandering through. Those are the best. Where I live we have coyotes. An educated person with common sense will know you do not leave your little fluff ball pooch outside alone at night knowing that coyotes are around. Missing cat posts. Same thing. Your cat is missing. Sad. Two things happen with cats: 1. they go out for a stroll and come back. That is what cats do. 2. they go out and do not come back. They are either struck by a vehicle or caught be a coyote.

I really do not know if there are any laws about posting comments, so I have not. I should. The comments are great fun. The best is when a bike is stolen and someone posts have you called the police. The response is not yet. Let’s see, even if the police have not time for you, the call is registered and they must at least log the situation. If more people call in do to a rash of thefts, guess what, they have a trend and will respond.

And one of my favorite is the video of a brazen “thief” who actually ripped the doorbell off the house. A great face shot. Ring will replace your device if you have this happen, but you must file a police report.

Don’t forget the porch pirates. It is amazing how many low life folk are out there to get free stuff. Probably the same people who join riots and loot. They feel entitled to anything in a box. Sad, but true.

Stay safe out there!

Protests: Good and Bad

Posted in Uncategorized by idiotwebmaster on June 5, 2020

We’ve have been hit by tragic situations. Such situations should promote, encourage, change. This change should be for the good of all. Should. What a weak word, but we live in a weak world.

The Good: People must come together and change for the good. What has happened should open ones eyes to the lopsided view of our society. It should open our eyes to the few bad that perpetuate and hinder our ability to change. Protests are good to get the word out. They must be peaceful.

The Bad: You have the other extreme which will attempt at all costs to undermine the word. Riots occur in the guise of a not so peaceful protest. It looks like the protesters going mad, but in reality it is others who what to undermine and take focus off the word.

I have an issue with the media. If they are trulyl reporting, they would follow the leads and inform the public where things have gone right and where things have gone wrong. They must not interject their opinions. State facts. If they state facts that turn out to be wrong, they must correct those statements as soon as possible. Their job is to inform, not sensationalize.

I agree that law enforcement must uphold the laws we have, without bias. So training is a must. Outreach would be good. My issue are the rich and famous, and all those who wish to defund law enforcement. Why? They need funds to properly train, get enough “good” people out there, and have enough to do the outreach. Without funds, pay will be low, and quality will result in what we have seen. Compare that to funding education. Same thing. Less funds, less resources, less qualified instructors, less interest in becoming a teacher.

Bottom line is common sense. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Doesn’t matter what race, religion, or planet you come from. Truly notice the evil and correct it. Elect leaders that are leaders. In our country, you must get off your ass and vote. Educate yourself. Do not just accept what you read in a headline or see on TV. Truly educate yourself. Don’t be an idiot.

The Virus

Posted in Uncategorized by idiotwebmaster on March 11, 2020

Where should I start?  PANIC!

Ah, the human reaction to something they do not understand.  Here are my thoughts:

  1. Don’t Panic
  2. Use Common Sense
  3. It will get worse before it gets better

Actions:

1. Do NOT buy ALL the hand sanitizer for yourself.  To be a very helpful race, please leave some for others.  If you are the only one who survives what will you do?  Who will feed you?  If you let others share in the protective magic gel, then more people will stay healthy longer.  Would that be more advantageous to the human race?

2. Wash your hands.  Oh, BTW, please leave some soap for others so we can ALL stay healthly longer.  Good hygiene goes a long way!

3. Don’t Panic.  If someone sneezes, they may have allergies, may have an itchy nose, maybe a bug flew up their nose, or even worse, someone was smoking week near them.

Stay safe and healthy!

Mask Use

So there is a virus going around.  I came across this post on Imgur.

If you do not know how to use the mask, don’t.  Healthcare workers need them more than you do.

 

Chinese children crush Americans in math thanks to a mindset Americans only display in one place: sports

Follow the Money

Posted in Uncategorized by idiotwebmaster on July 23, 2017

Notice I did not, and refused to, post on this last election.  It made my head hurt.  Hillary=Nut Case.  Trump = Nut Case.   There you have it.

I do find it interesting how both parties are so stupid and so greedy.  I also find it interesting how similar the two parties are.  If you think there is a two party system in the US of A, you are extremely naive.  Also, if you think the people have a say in the government, then you are extremely crazy.

All I can say is follow the money.  Who really elects these people?  Who really controls your representative?  Money, not you the stupid person.  Every elected official thinks that YOU cannot take care of yourself.  Your elected official believes they know what is right for YOU.  Your elected official thinks you are so stupid that YOU cannot elect or decide what or how to do anything.  Think about it.

 

As first debate looms, what to expect from Obama and Romney

Posted in Uncategorized by idiotwebmaster on September 23, 2012

As first debate looms, what to expect from Obama and Romney – http://pulse.me/s/dyCxM Let’s see. More BS? Lots of hot air? No real meat? The problem is not the candidates. It is the voter. The regular Joe blow that has fallen to non-thinking and propaganda. I’m sick of how we protect ourselves from our selves using government. Schools teaching students to sit and be told what to do. Unions screwing consumers by forcing employers to raise prices on goods. Greedy employers who screw consumers for that profit so they can convince others they need more. Just sick of it.

I Actually Had to Moderate a Comment Today

Posted in Uncategorized by idiotwebmaster on September 7, 2012

I will post this person’s response to the post Stop Being Babies, but I will not post the name or fake email address. If you do not use a god damned real email address or brave enough to leave an intelligent comment, don’t bother.

Here’s the comment:, and I quote: “U R A TOTAL DUCEBAG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

As you can tell this comes from a highly intelligent individual who did not use a name, but did misspell the word Will. WIIL is not the proper way to spell Will.

As for a Ducebag, I believe that is Douche Bag, two words.

My conclusion: God help us if this person is allowed to vote.
