This is the message I got three times after posting here. I am going to try again because I really need help.
I need advice on Windows 8. I am basically skeptical of new operating systems, but what is the alternative? I have read everything on this wall and somebody implied they had bought a MAC instead. Any information or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Balogreene Bettijo, I got a MacBook Pro for the following reasons: I hate PCs, I have an iPod, iPad, and iPhone, by switching to a MAC they all sync, photos, songs, text messages, etc. that doesn't happen if you have a PC, I saved enough to afford this more expensive computer, and, MS doesn't upgrade Mac versions quite so often.
Some PC type computers don't upgrade as quickly as Dell or HP. Look at Acer, they are good, inexpensive, and often a version behind (I have one ).
The other thing I have to say, because at work we pretty much keep up with technology, spend a day or so to get used to Windows 8. You'll like it soon enough. I may be a power user, but, last time we switched at work, I set things up (toolbars, sidebars, etc. ) so I work quite efficiently.
The first PC I worked on was pre-Windows. Windows was ok, cause I had also worked on the first Mac. But, Windows has never matched the Mac operating system. As we say at work, I hate Bill Gates, I hate Microsoft, I hate Apple! They all have their faults.

Balogreene Oops, and if we were all skeptical of new Operating Systems, we'd still be using DOS.

Bettijo posted on Main Page The Lobby Naked man arrested in Watertown. I have read, and watched video of a lot of conspiracy theories about this. I don't know what to believe.
Bluehouse Could the naked man have been the owner of the carjacked suv?

Bettijo I don't think so. Remember the hijacked victim escaped to a gas station across the street when the attendant called 911. Then the brothers escaped in the stolen suv.

Bettijo Question: Have police identified this guy yet? The one they arrested and made strip naked, and then paraded in front of the media cameras as they put him in a patrol car, and then let go because he wasn't involved?
It's not the carjack victim because he's Chinese and escaped at the gas station in Cambridge while Tamerlan was pumping gas and Dzhokhar was buying Red Bull before the brothers took the car to Watertown.
The families of the Newtown massacre are being used by the president in an effort to frame the issue this way: If you're with Obama, you're on the side of saving innocent children from mass killings -- and if you're against Obama, you have the blood of the children of Newtown on your hands. But it actually does matter if what Obama is proposing would have made any difference when it came to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. And the fact that it would not have is what makes Obama's gambit so shameful and disturbing. (I say that as someone who is somewhat sympathetic to the expanded background checks. )
Mr. Obama's effort at emotional blackmail has failed, and in bitterly lashing out at those who called him out on his demagoguery, he went some distance toward confirming that he is, in fact, a demagogue.
Three months into his second term, Mr. Obama is becoming an increasingly bitter and powerless figure. When a man who views himself as a world-historic figure and our Moral Superior commands things to happen and they don't, it isn't a pretty sight. See yesterday's Rose Garden statement for more.
Concerned about getting sick from a bad egg? Make sure that all your eggs pass the following tests:
1. Check the surface of the egg for any cracks. 2. Here's an easy test... you don't have to smell for any rotten smell. Fill a large container with cold water. Place the egg in the water. If the egg floats, toss it immediately. If the egg stands with its pointed end on the bottom, it would be better to cook this egg. If the egg sinks and stays on the bottom, it should be good to go. 3. To be on the safe side, you can smell and look at the egg white and yolk.

Bettijo posted on Politics While Americans Prepared For Easter Obama Secretly Signed Another Executive Order ‘Nationalizing Elections’
Following rampant allegations of voter fraud in last November’s Presidential election, President Barack Obama defied his harshest critics this past week, by quietly signing an executive order establishing a Presidential administration dedicated to, among other things, registering non-English speaking citizens to vote. Last Thursday, while the nation was busy preparing for their Easter holiday President Obama signed an Executive Order establishing the Presidential Commission on Election Administration, a wing of the federal government he has tasked with “election administration,” a move critics say is an attempt to nationalize the country’s elections for partisan advantage. The executive order, establishes a nine member board, appointed by the President, that “shall be drawn from among distinguished individuals with knowledge about or experience in the administration of State or local elections… and any other individuals with knowledge or experience determined by the President to be of value to the Commission.” Among one of the missions of the board will be to “ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots without undue delay, and to improve the experience of voters facing other obstacles in casting their ballots, such as… voters with limited English proficiency.” A voting bloc that leans Democratic by a margin of 70% in most elections. In a bold and unprecedented step, the executive order, which side steps any legislation or national debate, created a federal Commission that shall consider, ”the number, location, management, operation, and design of polling places; the training, recruitment, and number of poll workers; the efficient management of voter rolls and poll books; voter education; and voting accessibility for individuals with disabilities, limited English proficiency, and other special needs.” When confronted with the news, one Virginia local elections official called the move, “Frightening,” adding, “Because of my position, I’m non-partisan, which is precisely why I find this to be so troubling. The genius of American government is rooted in its separation of powers – not only between the branches of federal government, but also between the levels of government in general – state and Federal. When we have a commission comprised only of individuals appointed by one man, from one party, from only one branch of the government, that will be setting rules and making suggestions as to how local elections should be managed it’s beyond alarming – it’s just plain wrong.” http://beforeitsnews.com/obama/2013/04/obama-secretly-signed -another-executive-order-nationalizing-elections-2449254.

Bettijo posted on The Range 2nd Amendment Nearly Every Mass Shooting In The Last 20 Years Shares One Thing In Common, & It’s NOT Weapons By Dan Roberts Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com )- Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used. The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes. Multiple credible scientific studies going back more then a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior. One need only Google relevant key words or phrases to see for themselves. www.ssristories.com is one popular site that has documented over 4500 “ Mainstream Media “ reported cases from around the World of aberrant or violent behavior by those taking these powerful drugs. The following list of mass shooting perpetrators and the drugs they were taking or had been taking shortly before their horrific actions was compiled and published to Facebook by John Noveske, founder and owner of Noveske Rifleworks just days before he was mysteriously killed in a single car accident. Is there a link between Noveske’s death and his “outting” of information numerous disparate parties would prefer to suppress, for a variety of reasons ? I leave that to the individual readers to decide. But there is most certainly a documented history of people who “knew to much” or were considered a “threat” dying under extraordinarily suspicious circumstances.

Bettijo posted on Health & Diet Trader Joe's eliminated GMOs from its private-label products back in 2001 - what's taking Whole Foods so long? (NaturalNews ) In the wake of the recent announcement by Whole Foods Market that the retailer will require the labeling of all foods containing genetically-modified organisms (GMOs ) in its stores by 2018, many in the natural health community are now wondering, why the long wait? Whole Foods' reluctance to adopt truth-in-labeling standards in a more timely fashion illustrates that the company's priorities are somewhat muddled, especially since one of its major competitors, Trader Joe's, completely removed GMOs from its product line more than a decade ago without issue.
Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are similar in that both grocers are highly regarded by the natural health community for their extensive selection of "natural" and organic foods, but neither company currently labels the presence of GMOs in its products. But the primary reason why Trader Joe's does not label GMOs, according to an information page posted on the company's website, is that none of its private-label products, which represent the vast majority of products in the store, contain GMOs.
"Our approach to Genetically Modified Organisms is simple: we do not allow GMO ingredients in our private label products (anything with Trader Joe's, Trader Jose's, Trader Ming's, etc. on the label )," explains a Trader Joe's Customer Update from December 12, 2012. "Our efforts began in 2001, when we determined that, given a choice, our customers would prefer to eat foods and beverages made without the use of genetically engineered ingredients."
This is a far cry from how Whole Foods has handled the GMO issue, at least until very recently, despite more than likely having had similar input from its customers. For years, we here at Natural News have been calling on Whole Foods to take action and not only label GMOs in its stores, but also to remove them from its own product line. And while we are pleased that Whole Foods has taken the lead on the labeling issue by at least establishing a timeline for a complete phase-out, Trader Joe's has been much more judicious in actually getting the job done.
"While developing products containing ingredients likely to come from genetically modified sources, we have the supplier of the product perform the necessary research to provide documentation that the suspect ingredients are from non-GMO sources," says Trader Joe's. "This documentation is in the form of affidavits, identity-preserved certification of seed stock, and third-party lab results from the testing of the ingredients in question."
Trader Joe's double checks to make sure its products are actually GMO-free Beyond this, Trader Joe's explains that it routinely conducts random audits on products sold in its stores that contain "suspect ingredients" in order to ensure that customers are not being exposed to GMOs as a result of potentially unscrupulous suppliers using bad ingredients. This is commendable, as prior to the company's latest update on GMOs, there was no indication as to how Trader Joe's ensures that its products are actually GMO-free.
