   Gerty  I just received news to my e-mail that Walmart is having a GIANT rollback event. Wow, I can hardly wait to see what Christmas-in-July deals await me.

Never mind. Just picked out one item for a test run: Set of 3 Sterlite storage draws $16.86. That, my friends, represents the savings of $1.02.

I kid you NOT.

   John C  Just tried to leave a message for McConnell via his KY office and was told that they can only take in-state messages and for me to have a good day.

   Grahamcracker  That practice really frosts me. If that is the philosophy of our elected elites, then their salaries should be the responsibility of their constituents. Not only do all of us pay all of their salaries, their decisions affect all of us.

   StormCnter  Many officeholders have that same rule. It's not unique to McConnell. Try a snail mail letter. Most of them pay more attention to a physical letter than to an email or phone message.

   Alice  MeiDei, I just read about that in a post on the main page. As I said there, poor Detroit.

It reminded me that I lost a photo supposedly of the 2000 Gore-Bradley debate. Either altered jpeg or natural wrinkling of the stage curtain behind them, it depicted a demon watching over the Democratic Party debate. So apt... :- )

A quick search of google images just now did not turn it up, but I hope someone here has it and will share it.

   MeiDei  I scrolled down, after reading the comments, to the Jon Stewart interview - and read those comments - maybe there's hope for the future.

   Grahamcracker  So glad you posted this, Distorted. Same thing happened to me today on my ipad. Went to my laptop to find the phone# & as soon as I typed it in, my ipad returned to normal. I don't know if that was a coincidence or not as I'm not technically savvy. Something is going on w/the Lucianne site, though. Every so often the posts become almost unreadable they are so small. I, too, have had crashing problems the past couple days.

   StephaniePlum  Same here, Grahamcracker, about receiving the error message and frozen website on my iPad. However, it only happens on the iPad and only with Lucianne, not on my desktop with Windows where I access Lucianne fine via Firefox. I played around yesterday on the iPad and got on-line another way and have avoided Lucianne on the iPad today and no problems. I also avoid those "instant fix" phone numbers like the plague knowing that there is a scam involved. Regarding the phone #, What exactly do you mean that you "typed it in" ... you called the 844 number or you just did a search ?
July 23 at 19:25 EST .

   Grahamcracker  I did a search. I'd never call one of those pop - up #s!

   Distorted  Can a virus be site specific and only activate when you open that certain site? The problem does not arise on any other website.

   StormCnter  I hope everyone saw the message on the Main Forum, right under Must Reads. It's Apple redirecting your computers.

   Distorted  Distorted Is suffering a hack attack presently. Since yesterday I have been having trouble staying signed in and strange ads take over the screen. Today a dialog box comes on and takes over my iPad forcing a reboot. The script in the box demands I call a 844 number. Is it me or is it the site?
July 23 at 13:08 EST .

   StormCnter  Distorted, I think you've picked up a virus somewhere. I am all over Lucianne off and on every day and I'm having no problem. Yesterday, however, the site crashed several times during the day, each time for only a short period. Everyone had trouble signing on, but it's been cleared today.
July 23 at 15:00 EST .

   MeiDei  Be wary of that 844 number - if it's what I suspect it's a $cam; had to do a system restore to get rid of the message & the virus.

   John C  Charlie Rose interviewed David Plouffe, now an exec with Uber this morning.
Lo and behold he is predicting a big influx of population into the cities in the next 10 years. Can you say Agenda 21, new people Data banks targeting the suburbs, continued illegals immigration, all giving a boost to Uber and the democrats who will then control every state.

   Bettijo  Stunning Surprise Revealed in The May Jobs Report

The BLS Monthly jobs numbers reported during the Obama Economic Recovery always seem a bit suspect.

This month, May 2015, appears to be no exception.

A close look inside the numbers reveals a surprising trend about who is landing jobs.

This Zero Hedge article dives inside the job report numbers to reveal that “foreign born workers” are landing most of the jobs:

But the biggest surprise came from Table 7, where the BLS reveals the number of “foreign born workers” used in the Household survey. In May, this number increased to 25.098 million, the second highest in history, a monthly jump of 279K.

Assuming, the Household and Establishment surveys were congruent, this would mean that there was just 1K native-born workers added in May of the total 280K jobs added.

Alternatively, assuming the series, which is not seasonally adjusted, was indicative of seasonally adjusted data, then the 272K increase in total Household Survey civilian employment in May would imply a decline of 7K native-born workers offset by the increase of 279K “foreign borns.”

But while all of these comparisons are apples to oranges, using the BLS’ own Native-Born series, also presented on an unadjusted basis, we find the following stunner: since the start of the Second Great Depression, the US has added 2.3 million “foreign-born” workers, offset by just 727K “native-born”.

Of course, the Main Stream Media will never report what’s really happening inside the job numbers. Also, we’ll never hear that “the ‘foreign-born’ category includes both legal and illegal immigrants unfortunately, the BLS is unable, or unwilling, to distinguish between the two.”

This report confirms what most “native born” and legal United States citizens know. When 75% of the jobs are going to “foreign born” workers, wages are kept low and the economic recovery is an illusion for many American citizens.

It’s all a dangerous smoke and mirrors monetary policy that keeps wages depressed for skilled, hard-working Americans.

   Mildred  I've been missing them too. I have also noted that there are fewer and fewer posts. I, for one, will probably leave soon because of all the ads that keep popping up. I can't get rid of them. I use AdFender and Lucianne is the only site that I visit where AdFender can't stop the ads. The silly animated ads are the worst!

   RedWhiteBlue  Have you tried AdBlocker Plus? I've had for a little while now and haven't had a add pop up since, not here or anywhere else. I have Firefox. I never had AdFender so I don't know the diff.

   Mildred  RedWhiteBlue: I've used AdBlocker in the past and can't remember why I stopped using it. I then tried AdFender and really liked it. I use Explorer and have not had any ads except on Lucianne and Yahoo Mail. I recently got a new computer and had no ads on Lucianne for about a week and then they started at various times of the day, mosttly at night. I think there are a few 'ad placement' businesses (or whatever they call them ) that have found a way to work around AdFender and certain websites. If an ad pops up, I can exit Lucianne and when I click on again the ad is gone so I guess AdFender works in some way. This is all a mystery to me!

   Mildred  The mystery is solved. I've been getting a brown horizontal bar to the right of the Must Reads on the Home Page. Didn't know what it was. Well, today it finally had a name: Adiply. Lucianne is now 'multiplying' its ad revenue by covering the pages with more ads. I still haven't found a way to uninstall it. Anyone know how to do this?

   MeiDei  Thanks for posting. I always shudder when I hear him proclaim reverently "The HOLY Koran" while casually mentioning the "bible" (his small b ). Seems to me he also confuses the pre-Islam Persians with the post Arabic Iranians who caused the Persians to flee their country or be sacrificed.
