Let's boycott Kentucky Bourbon until #MoscowMitch is gone

Lots of other distilled spirits come from Kentucky as well. Let's boycott it all. Check the distilled spirit you are picking up. If it has a Kentucky Distilling source, just Ditch it because of #MoscowMitch. Buy Canadian, Irish, Oregon or other whiskeys. There's plenty of choices. Watch out for vodkas and gins that come from Kentucky. There are other choices. New Amsterdam gin made in California is quite sufficient. There are others. No sorry feels for Kentucky. They have to all begin working to #Ditch #MoscowMitch. We will help them celebrate when they do with a toast of fine Kentucky Bourbon. #Boycott #KentuckyBourbon #KentuckySpirits #Ditch #MoscowMitch

IoT, the internet of things. and election technology. (?)

recently bought an HP Tango printer and due to it containing IoT technology, I started studying IoT security concerns a little. Pretty tough for my brain to understand it all. However, when it is on, and HP would actually prefer it is on at all times (yeah right, run up my electricity bill) so that it can better count my copies and send me ink before I need it.

BUT, My devils advocate side started thinking. Election machinery with IoT tech in it could count votes throughout the day and just send more votes when they are needed in certain precincts in certain states? Could IoT count votes and at 5 p.m. just switch 5% from column B to column A if column A was 1 or 2 % behind?

From what I have read and understanding the simple counting involved in sending me more ink what would stop this from happening in an election involving use of IoT voting machinery and software ?

I think we should be checking with voting machine companies and ask if any of their newer models contain IoT capabilities.

I am considering converting an old Win 10 HP laptop to Linux. Opinions?

It says G60 on it. It's around 10 years old. It was a Win 7 but converted to Win 10 just fine.

From what I read, it seems Zorin might be the best bet? Any other ideas? I am thinking the conversion would also wipe a lot of old data that is safe on another computer and detachable hard drive.

Indiana has paid $229k to defend this unconstitutional law; not worth appealing it

Maybe we should focus more on what it costs state taxpayers everywhere to defend laws by legislators with no understanding of the law and no understanding of medicine and health care.

anyone else noticing rightwing FB posts claiming the hate for trump is being directed at them

I've seen two FB posts tonight suddenly bemoaning that the left's hatred for Trump is being directed at them and other right wingers 'personally'. Seems like a new effort to unite them in their deplorable bubble?

This is one:

And this one:

It just seems unusual to me that two people who I see rarely post are being triggered to post things along these lines. Both tonight. Something is effecting them to where they have reached a threshold to repeat these types of items.

Aren't any Korean War Veterans pissed about

Trump asking and stepping into North Korea? How many Americans died in that war? And he becomes the first American president to dance into it? Bone Spurs and all?
