   Gram77  This should go to the movie site but I'm not sure how many still go there so.......Just finished watching Nebraska. I thought it was a great story, I thought Bruce Dern should have gotten the Academy Award and I thought it was extremely appropriate that it was done in black and white. My favorite part was when Woody drove through town in the new truck.

   FlatCityGirl  The answer is, they will never be off the Public Teat.

Not only will they get their "retirement" pay and lifelong Secret Service protection, transportation, housing, etc., they will make unheard of demands long after January, 2017.

That pair of grifters will suck this nation dry if given half a chance, and at this juncture, we have no reason to believe they won't be given more than half a chance --judging strictly by McConnell's and Ryan's penchant for bowing and scraping and saying, "Yes, Massa, yes," every time the Mulatto or Sasquatch demand something new.

As long as the likes of McConnell and Ryan and the rest of the Republican Bow-Boys are running things, the Mulatto will run them ragged.

I hope my grandchildren live long enough to see 0bama's grave turned into a public toilet.

   Fireball27  Heard something on the radio tonight I think is worth passing along. One of the young women who was shot in Orlando, was able to contact her mom on the phone. She told her mom to come and get her, and that she had been shot in the arm. The girl hid under some of the other victims, and it looked as if she would make it out alive.

Unfortunately she didn't. She bled to death. No one there did any first aid. How many of us "older" folks have been taught first aid? Most of us, I'd say. Now days I don't think they teach it. Common sense, stop the bleeding! Please discuss this situation with your loved ones. Ask the grandkids what they know about first aid. That poor mom didn't think her daughter would be in too bad of shape. If only someone would have tied off her arm, and stopped the bleeding. We have to be ready, so look for exits, think about what you would do if something goes down. Someone's life may depend on your actions.

   FlatCityGirl  I don't know whether first aid was even possible in this instance. The gunman was barricaded in the club, and as I understand it, he was keeping everyone "pinned down," and it's doubtful that anyone who had tried to aid the wounded would have survived. Anyone who got up or moved around would have been a sitting duck for the gunman.

The cops didn't even try to breach the building until three hours after they arrived.

In lots of photos I saw of the able-bodied escorting the wounded, I saw tourniquets and what looked like wadded up clothing covering wounds. One photo in particular, there were two men carrying a third who had a tourniquet on his upper thigh.

First aid training is always a good idea, I just don't know who effective it would have been in this case.

   Fireball27  Maybe it wasn't. However she was able to contact her mom. So maybe she could have stopped or slowed the bleeding herself if she knew how. That's my point. Make sure your loved ones know what to do. Even if they have to do it on themselves.

   Labrador Heaven  Discussing the Orlando shooter - and whether he was gay or not and how many Muslim men are, despite their "religion" - this piece came back to me. It was posted by another Ldotter long back who is gone now. But it is extremely relevant and insightful. Best piece I've read on the matter.

   Tulsa  On our way in a store this morning I told the Suit I needed tips on what to do if a shooter entered. He said hit the floor and if possible crawl into an empty display shelf. We both carry.

On our way out of the store we passed a woman exiting the restroom. I asked if there were any men in there. She laughed and shook her head.

For the time being, all is well here.

   Mildred  Tulsa, glad everything is good in your part of the world. We're doing fine here also. I made some new notes under Daisymay's thread and hope you were able to read them. I wish I knew how I did it but I am now using ABP and there are no ads on Lucianne for two days and my computer is running faster. Again, thanks for your help.

   Tulsa  I am just seeing this. I scrolled down and read your comments.

That's exactly how I felt when I read 'right click ON the ad'. I just started trying things. I remember clicking debugger too.

Mildred, this is wonderful news. Just wonderful. I'm so happy you are free of ads and to know it works in IE.

I had another bother. Sites wanted me to share my location. I surf in Firefox and in private. I believe it is safer than IE. I digress...after I found the help icon under the 'hamburger' lol...I'll never get over that name and the Suit had never heard it until 3 days ago...I found a whole nother world of site restrictions. So I went to every site I visit and restricted them severely.

The share window was dropping down upper left between the i in a circle and the shield and was happening during searchers for anyone one using Firefox. Just search 'share location' and follow the directions.

Good job, Mildred. Good job.

   Mildred  Tulsa: I just get one computer problem solved and now we have to watch the updates. More Win10 updates that we have already hidden. Be careful. They will not give up. I did some research and decided to install only the security updates. I think I'm okay.

Thanks for all your good work with the 'sharing your location'. I've seen that before and always say NO.

   Daisymay  Tulsa, okay, I give...what's a "hamburger"?

   Tulsa  Us too, Mildred. We installed the update for IE 11 tho we seldom use it. We think Firefox has far more security. We installed a MS security essential update, that's our virus protection and it's free and excellent(MSSE ). And we installed the Win. Malicious software removal tool and hid the other eight (8 ) updates. I don't trust MS. The pcs may stop working. We'll see.

Daisymay. In Firefox it's the icon that is 3 horizontal lines. Bun, patty, bun = the hamburger icon or button. Is that the funniest name you've heard? I think so. Click that to get to cut, paste, print, find, save, for options, add-ons, etc, etc.

   Mildred  Just checking in this morning, Tulsa and Daisymay. I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed also. After trying all the others years ago and having multiple problems, a very nice tech at the Geek Squad (I think ) installed Security Essentials and I have never looked back. I never install the optional updates. Why they are even offered is a mystery. Thanks for the info about the hamburger. I'm still using IE11 but have Firefox installed also. Since we solved the problem with ABP, my computer is super fast (except on Lucianne ) in IE11 and, so far, no ads. Hope I haven't jinxed it!

   Tulsa  Don't even think jinx. Our tech told us about MSSE too. It's the best. McAfee and Norton and others are not only resource hogs, but they cost. AVG was reasonable, but started sending emails selling other products and then they tried to auto renew and auto draft. Well no you won't!

It's just like never ever allow Adobe to download automatically bc they'll change your search engine, add virus protection, etc. It was a disaster I read about it in time change my settings. Company IT guys were livid, as 100s of pcs were being changed without notice - I read their messages to Adobe and there's Adobe saying there's an opt out which was a major lie.

Daisymay, under the hamburger, click Options and knock yourself out!
Under Options
For instance: Select Privacy
History
Firefox will - in box select 'Use custom settings'
'Check' Always use private browsing mode
'Check' Accept cookies from sites
Accept third party cookies - in box select 'Never'

Every category under Options is a gold mine! in Firefox.

And the help icon is at the bottom of the hamburger page. Small dark circle with a ? in it. You may search for topics and the answers are in plain English with pictures!!!

   Lonestar Jack  I stumbled on the aviator browser a few years back and use it when I am tired of all the ads and javascript objects on web pages. You can google it and its parent company.
In fact I have to use it with Lucianne because of the slowness and hangups. Drudge loads ad refreshes in seconds with Aviator, but you should read about the Whitehat security first.

   Escaped commieny  As a lone female sales rep covering 30 Fl Counties, I was never without protection, now a days, I don't take out the garbage unarmed. Even at the Space Center, they just put it in a box until I was done with my calls. Outside of court houses and schools I don't believe in gun free zones.

I've seen this a dozen times in the last few weeks. An article appears from a perfectly acceptable source --Gateway Pundit in this instance, and then it gets deleted.

What's up with that?
