OK, I am a Democrat and hell I am left wing and happy to admit it. (Brave of me since I live in Texas.)
I have no problem having people call me a leftist. Bill Nye is a hero to the left and hated with rage and passion by the right.
I think Bill Nye is a honest person and is correct about science but I think he is a piss poor spokesperson for the left and our causes. He comes across as prejudice and heavy-handed.
He comes across as authoritarian and harsh.
He has a new TV show on Netflix. The show is called “Bill Nye Saves the World.” I saw it on Netflix the other day.
I could only watch a little of the show. I could not stand it. It was not funny. It was not well done. Bill Nye came across as a joke. But he was not funny.
The important thing to me is that he does not make the left look good.
There is no one that is going to watch his show and change their position.
He is not a credit or a help to the left. The right can show him and repeat what he says and make us all look like a bunch of prejudice people promoting our agenda.
We should all run away from Bill Nye as fast as we can.
Michael Moore does not help us. He did at first but now he hurts are cause when he speaks. I think many Democrats agree with me now. I think Bill Nye is going to hurt our causes much worst than Michael Moore.
I saw a doctor the other day about my skin cancer. He told me about it and the options and asked what treatment I wanted. I like the doctor a great deal. I am glad my doctor recommend him.
May 17 (2017) I will go in and have the basal cell carcinoma removed.
Mohs surgery, developed in 1938 by a general surgeon, Frederic E. Mohs, is microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer. During the surgery, after each removal of tissue and while the patient waits, the tissue is examined for cancer cells. That examination informs the decision for additional tissue removal. Mohs surgery is one of the many methods of obtaining complete margin control during removal of a skin cancer (CCPDMA – complete circumferential peripheral and deep margin assessment) using frozen sectionhistology.CCPDMA or Mohs surgery allows for the removal of a skin cancer with very narrow surgical margin and a high cure rate.
I do not plan to blog about the surgery as it happens or even take photos or video.
I suspect you will see me with a hat on from now on.
The gun bunny is a strange American to me. I just do not understand how a Republican man can get an erection over a Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB). I guess, as a Democrat, I should not be sexist.
The Republican woman on Fox News seem to get wet panties over MOAB.
The Republicans say they love small government but they love big guns and bigger bombs. I just do not understand my gun bunny friends.
This should be the end of United. Airlines should NOT be allowed to overbook. If someone does not show up and they can not fill the seat then fly with empty seats. I think we should all try and make sure that all the seats on United are empty.
My God … I can not believe how stupid the Trump Administration people are … How are we going to last as a nation for four years of this?

The Department of Homeland Security just outlined the Trump Administration’s standards for extreme vetting. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tells you how this will kill tourism in the US. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go
“Foreigners who want to visit the U.S., even for a short trip, could be forced to disclose contacts on their mobile phones, social-media passwords and financial records, and to answer probing questions about their ideology, according to Trump administration officials conducting a review of vetting procedures.”
I have been moving everything around in my room. The photo below was taken just a few minutes ago.
Photo taken 04/04/2017
My room does not look too bad in the photo above. But there is a ton of stuff not showing up in the photo that I need to try and find space to put away.
Also I am 76 years old and the older I get the more distance I need to put between me and the camera.
If you been following the news you know that there is a boycott by companies of YouTube. The companies are pulling advertising from YouTube. It is hurting YouTube and it is hurting those that do YouTube videos.
Some people that make YouTube videos are having their income down by over half. Some YouTube sites are going to be hurt big time.
It is not going to effect me. I make about $25.00 a month from YouTube. What I make from YouTube has gone from $25.00 a month to $18.50 a month.
I enjoy making videos. I have, right now, 730 videos on YouTube. I have 2,123 subscribers and have had 1,045,385 views. So I will keep on making YouTube videos. There are some YouTube sites that have studios and a large staff of employees. They could be hurt and some are saying that they may have to shut down.
I will make a YouTube video soon. I will update you on what is going on around here .. as much as I can .. My family does not want to be in my videos and do not want to be mentioned .. Makes it hard to be a personal blog ..
Right now .. Hilary is staying here .. she has a sick cat that she is having treated by a vet. It has to stay in my room with the door closed so the other cat here, DD, does not get what he has …
A lot going on here …
I will tell you what I can ..
I got to get ready right now .. we got an AmazonPrime order due here soon.
OH good the cat has moved from in front of my door now and I can get out of my cell.
About a month ago Hilary got a used car. She paid $2K for it. It would not start unless she ran it each day. There are major blood stains in the front seat by the driver’s seat though she was told it was not wrecked and a little old lady was the prior car owner. I could add to the list.
Because she had been in Sweden for ten years and had no DL she had to pay 800.00, in advance, for one year of auto insurance. Later they told her the price quote was wrong and she owed another 80.00. Hilary passed her DL exam until a few days ago. Before she got her DL her car was stolen two times from the parking lot of the apartment in Irvin (TX). The car was stolen by the same people both times. One of the guys visits a guy that lives in the apartment across from Russ’s apartment. Hilary is now stuck paying for an apartment that she can not even safely keep her car park at. Hilary has been here helping us move but soon she will be going back to Russ’s apartment. I am sure she is going to have problems with the guys that took her car. The first time they took her car they asked if they could test drive it by going around the block. They took the car and never came back with it. She filled out a police report and the police found it a few days later a few blocks away from the apartments. She had it towed back for 108.00 … They then took the car again the next day.
Hilary made police reports both times. The second time the Dallas police found the car and towed it to Auto Impound in Dallas. Hilary had to pay 190.00 to get the car out of impound a few days later. 120.00 of it was for them towing the car yet nobody called Hilary until after it was towed to the lot later that day. Hilary saw other people that had stolen cars to pick up and had to pay to get them back.
Below is Hilary’s car. This photo was taken the other day after she had repair work done on the car. She also had to have a new windshield put on the car.
“The threshold for probably being a psychopath is 30 points,” said Olbermann, adding Trump may “still finish life as high as 36 points, since two of his questions pertain to criminal record and violation of parole, and there’s plenty of time for him on both.”
Olbermann used the checklist ― a clinical tool that helps to diagnose psychopathy ― to conduct a similar assessment on Trump in July 2016. The then-presidential candidate scored equally high numbers. The difference between then and now?
“In a president, the problem escalates to, you know, the possible end of the world,” Olbermann said.

THE MORNING EMAIL
Start your workday the right way with the news that matters most.
About: I got my first computer in 1978. I set up a computer bulletin board system (BBS) in 1982. You had to dial in at 300 baud. A national magazine picked my BBS as one of the ten best sites. I was blogging before the word blog had been invented. People think the first blog was invented in 1995. They are wrong I was doing it in 1982.
When the rest of the world got around to inventing the world wide web I moved my BBS to the web. Yes, I been online for over 32 years.
You have found one of the very first online sites!
I was doing this before Google (1998), before YouTube (2005), Yahoo (1994) and all the rest of them.
You have found one of the fathers of all this that we all enjoy so much.
Welcome and enjoy and hang out with Jim Howard. He has been waiting for you.
One of the first online sites, one of the first blogs and one of the first webcam sites.
