did anyone see that Alex Jones spoke at the RNC?

LOL, he is the wackiest among all the wackies.
If you don't know him, he runs "Inforwars", and he thinks the lizard people are taking over the world.

I have a question on Amazon Fire tablet

based on recs a long time ago, probably on this group, I sought out an Amazon Fire today at staples.
well, the person "working" there was too uninterested in my questions so I'd like to put them to anyone here who might have an opinion...
The guy told me that this was a demo model so it didn't have an operating system.
But that I could get an app to install one.
and it uses amazon's own operating system.

so is this true?
and what do you think about the OS?


oh the model is the one that is $50.00. apparently that is a good bargain.

Chicago: Protesters shut down the Dan Ryan

Protesters are marched in Chicago and across the country Thursday in response to the recent police involved shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Big crowds gathered in Times Square in New York and protesters stormed the capitol in Washington.

In Chicago, demonstrators caused big disruptions in traffic. Two college students organized the protest on social media.
Police say there were no arrests here, but at one point, the crowd stopped traffic on the Dan Ryan Expressway.

Several more protests are in the works including one planned for Saturday at the Taste of Chicago and another economic boycott on Michigan Ave later this month.

Philando Castile Was a Role Model to Hundreds of Kids

Colleagues and parents on Thursday remembered Philando Castile as an ambitious man who served as a role model for hundreds of children before he was fatally shot by a police officer during a traffic stop in Minnesota.

Castile, who was known by friends as Phil, was a cafeteria supervisor at J.J. Hill Montessori Magnet School in Saint Paul, Minn., where he memorized the names of the 500 children he served every day — along with their food allergies, his former coworker said.

“He remembered their names. He remembered who couldn’t have milk. He knew what they could have to eat and what they couldn’t,” Joan Edman, a recently retired paraprofessional at the school, told TIME. “This was a real guy. He made a real contribution. Yes, black lives matter. But this man mattered.”
