Shooting of Indian Man at a Bar in Olathe KS

Back in the early 70s, God I am old, I worked  for a security company as a patrol officer.  I forget the name of the bar but it was in Olathe (KS) and near the  Olathe Naval Air Station.  I had to go into the bar at about 2 AM and clear everyone out.
The bar always had a lot of people from the military base.  I did not look forward to closing a bar filled with marines but it was my job.  I can remember a few young USMC men saying they were not going to leave.  I was in my 30s.  I think any one of those 18 year old marines could have kicked my ass.  I just told them it was my job and they were done drinking for the night.  If they got up from their chair I just turned the  chair over and put it on their table.  
I made it without getting into a fight.  But I was glad when I moved to a different job.

I wonder if that is the bar where the Indian man was killed the other day.  Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was shot at a bar in Olathe.  It was a hate crime.  

See the CNN story.

  The shooter is reported to have said “Get out of my country.”

My comments on a video about Donald Trump and Ivanka

 

 A policial hate site on YouTube called “Trump Truth Watch” made a very sick YouTube video about President Trump and his daughter Ivanka.
  You all know I am NOT a President Trump supporter but that video caused me to create and post this video.
   
   I made this ranting and raving video a couple of days ago.
Today I went to YouTube and the About tab and I found this:

64,461 subscribers 35,599,599 views 

Exposing the truth about the Trumps and all their allies. I'm into politics, conspiracies and the truth. I also post news clips related to the president, including of Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and Stephen Miller.

Don’t Dump or Flush

DON’T DUMP OR FLUSH!

Fort Worth is conducting a pilot program to increase opportunities for residents to safely and conveniently dispose of unused, unwanted and expired drugs. In addition to the twice-a-year Drug Take Back Days, the City of Fort Worth Solid Waste Services Division is currently distributing a total of 1,000 drug take back envelopes.

One postage paid envelope will be provided per household upon request while supplies last. Residents can call 817-392-1234 or email 1234@FortWorthTexas.Govto request an envelope, which will be mailed to them.

To use the envelope, simply place unwanted over-the-counter and/or prescription drugs in the envelope and drop the envelope in a USPS mailbox. Drugs will then be mailed to Sharps Compliance, where they will be safely and properly destroyed through incineration.

The medication mail-back envelopes are 8 by 11 inches and are only designed for small quantities of medications. To save space, medications may be removed from their containers and placed directly in a zippered plastic bag then into the envelope. For the destruction of larger quantities of medication, residents should consider participating in a semiannual Drug Take Back Day or visit one of the drug take back kiosks currently in the area.

The next Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at seven local Walgreen locations.

President Trump is Mentally Ill

Andrew Sullivan Questions Trump’s Mental Stability: He Refuses to ‘Recognize Reality’

Andrew Sullivan appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources this morning to discuss his recent piece on President Trump‘s lies and mental stability. Here’s part of what he had to say:

Then there is the obvious question of the president’s mental and psychological health. I know we’re not supposed to bring this up — but it is staring us brutally in the face. I keep asking myself this simple question: If you came across someone in your everyday life who repeatedly said fantastically and demonstrably untrue things, what would you think of him? If you showed up at a neighbor’s, say, and your host showed you his newly painted living room, which was a deep blue, and then insisted repeatedly — manically — that it was a lovely shade of scarlet, what would your reaction be? If he then dragged out a member of his family and insisted she repeat this obvious untruth in front of you, how would you respond? If the next time you dropped by, he was still raving about his gorgeous new red walls, what would you think? Here’s what I’d think: This man is off his rocker. He’s deranged; he’s bizarrely living in an alternative universe; he’s delusional. If he kept this up, at some point you’d excuse yourself and edge slowly out of the room and the house and never return. You’d warn your other neighbors. You’d keep your distance. If you saw him, you’d be polite but keep your distance.

Sullivan told Brian Stelter today that whereas most politicians who tell falsehoods may have a general “deference to reality,” Trump “simplly insists that black is white.”

And on the question of mental stability, Sullivan thinks that while this may be a taboo subject, it’s important to start talking about how the president keeps making “bonkers” statements.

He said he doesn’t “want to believe the President of the United States is just delusional or can’t accept reality,” but it’s harder for him to ignore.

Stelter brought up the criticism from the conservative media that there’s anti-Trump “hysteria” going around, leading to claims such as these. Sullivan responded by saying the real hysteria isn’t coming from him, but from the Oval Office.

New Logitech 4K USB WebCam

I do not want to think about how many USB webcams that I have paid for over the years.  I have paid for a lot of them.  I did win a webcam in a contest on Flag Day one year.  Many of the webcams have been Logitech webcams. They make the best USB webcams.

I have three Logitech webcams here now.  I have given many away.
Well, Logitech has a new webcam.  Some YouTube people got one to review. There new Logitech Brio is a 4K HD webcam and will be on sale soon.  The price is going to be $199.99 and I will want one. That is a lot of money for a USB webcam.  

There are some reviews on YouTube.  Just do a search for “Logitech Brio 4K Webcam.”

One billion captioned videos

  I read often BetaNews and find a lot of good information. They have an interesting report “Google exceeds 1  billion captioned videos on YouTube.”

“Around the world, there are many people with hearing impairments. This doesn’t mean that they are necessarily deaf — they may instead have severe hearing loss. Someone in my family, for instance, has to wear hearing aids. For these people, captioning on videos (text displayed on screen) can be a necessity, making it possible to enjoy a TV show or movie. Heck, it can be used by people without hearing issues too; they may need to mute their TV as to not wake family members.

Nowadays, captioning extends to internet videos too, including the very popular YouTube. In fact, today, Google announces that it has exceeded 1 billion captioned videos! While this is certainly an amazing accomplishment, the service’s automatic speech recognition can sometimes be very wrong — even comically so.””

 I have 713 videos on YouTube.  I do not pay for captioning.  YouTube just gives that to videos.
I just checked my recent video:  President Trump’s lies and a discussion about Truth and Lies and the captioning I think on that video is excellent.

Here is that video below.
