Communicating In Dangerous Times

I just stumbled across this little Android communications app... Zello.
Could prove to be very useful in a pinch. I just installed it on my Samsung.
Of all the available group chat apps, Zello is credited with helping protesters across the globe organize and communicate, much as Twitter and Facebook did during the Arab Spring in 2010. Zello was the most popular app on the App Store and Google Play for several days in Ukraine before it began topping the charts in Venezuela. Reports from sources from NPR to Quartz extolled its developers' work to evade blocks put in place by Venezuela's state-run mobile service provider.

Zello works like a walkie-talkie, allowing users to broadcast voice messages to groups using their smartphone's data connection. It is used for many of the same tasks that walkie-talkies are, with a range as far as a phone’s data connection.

Launched in 2007, Zello is popular thanks to "the same qualities that have been popular with two-way radio for organizing people and events," Bill Moore, CEO of the Austin, Texas-based company, told International Business Times. "Participants don't need their hands or eyes. The information is in real time, it works with small or large groups. And voice carries much more information than text."

Zello (and it's free).
Turn your phone or tablet into a walkie talkie with this lightning fast free PTT (Push To Talk) radio app, which works between Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, and PC. Talk to your contacts privately or join public channels to engage in a hot debate.
Zello features:
• Real-time streaming, high quality voice
• Contacts availability and text status
• Public and private channels for up to 1000 users
• Option to map hardware PTT (Push To Talk) button
• Bluetooth headset support (selected phones)
• Voice history
• Call alert
• Images
• Push notifications
• Works over WiFi, 2G, 3G, or 4G mobile data
Zello uses proprietary low-latency push-to-talk protocol and is not interoperable with Voxer, Sprint Direct Connect or AT&T Enhanced PTT. Zello Android client supports free public service, Zello@Work cloud service, and private Zello Enterprise Server.

No Bush 45

I've had my fill of Bush's.

I am right up to here with Bush's.

No more Bush's.

No more "Read My Lips. No new taxes." - Bush41
We got a nice increase in existing taxes.
And fancy new ones like the Audio Home Recording Act.

No more "Mission Accomplished." - Bush43
No it wasn't.
Still isn't.
But we did get:

  1. more entitlements ( in the first 7 years Medicare Part D added almost $320 bn to the national debt) and the first in a long line of
  2. financial bailouts, first for the automotive industry (GM alone got $49 bn and reneged on $11 bn in pay backs) and then Wall Street ($700 bn).
So, what was the mission again?

Not a chance for “I think Detroit would do real well if we started repopulating it with young, aspirational people.” - "Jeb" Bush45 wanna be.
Sure, concentration camps.
Filled with conservative youths.
Or illegal aliens.

Here's ya young, aspirational youts Detroit

More here for Jeb's latest "let's see what I yank out of my ass" comment.

Really, this guy's an idiot. Detroit's problem is 60 years of corrupt Democratic political control.

Just How Screwed Up Is This Guy?

I'm not sure why I even bother posting anything about these people. A slow motion train wreck doesn't begin to describe what is happening to this human flotsam and jetsam.
Bruce Jenner reportedly plans on being a lesbian once he completes his gender reassignment and becomes 'Belinda.'

The 65-year-old Olympic gold medalist has told loved ones that he 'can't imagine himself being attracted to men.'

'He's not sure if the hormone treatments will change how he feels about men,' a family insider said in the March 9 edition of Star Magazine. 'But right now he says that he still likes women.'
Story here:

America hasn't lost it's moral center; America has rejected it.
We'll see even more of this kind of senseless mutilation and confusion celebrated in the media.

Redneck Gatling Gun

Made from six SKS semi-automatic rifles. I believe those are 30-round mags in those rifles. That's 180 rounds before reloading.

Story here.

Cutting Men?

Wait a minute...

Exactly what are we cutting?
And what part of my world are you rocking?

I Like Scott Walker

 Gov. Scott Walker

I like the Governor of Wisconsin.
I like his stance on public sector unions.
I like his stance on government sending.
And I really like the way he handles the idiots in the media who are howling for the scent of a story, any story, that could derail his Presidential aspirations.
How do you know that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has taken at least temporary custody of frontrunner status in the race for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016? Beyond, of course, the polls that show him rocketing to the front of the pack in critical early primary states like Iowa? The political press is coming down hard on him and his nascent campaign.
When Obama announced his candidacy for President, the media immediately started humping his leg. Scott Walker announces his candidacy and they're biting at his ankles. But that's what liberal dogs do.
After three unambiguous statewide victories in a Democratic state in just four years, Scott Walker is thoroughly vetted. If there were skeletons in his closet, the media and the myriad opposition researchers scrutinizing his past would have found them by now. “Scott Walker could very well be indicted in the coming days,” the forlorn MSNBC host Ed Schultz predicted on the night of Walker’s second statewide victory. He never was.
Schultz was on suicide watch for three weeks after that insanely wistful prognostication. Schutz sounded like he wanted a pony for his birthday and got a three-legged cocker spaniel with a saddle instead.
So, the press has taken a keen interest in catching Walker in unflattering moments or making hash out of otherwise minor controversies. Rudy Giuliani was speaking at an event for Walker when he sent the political media into a manic frenzy in which reporter and pundit alike tripped over one another to denounce what they dubbed the New York City’ mayor’s callous and quite possibly racist assertion that President Barack Obama doesn’t love his country. Only now, on day five of that story, is it finally beginning to fade from the media’s focus.
Nope, no meat on that bone. The dogs must dig elsewhere.
Watch them rip up his lawn and piss on his geraniums.

6 Years Too Late

Former NYC Mayor Guiliana asks the $4 million question and now the media starts chasing its tail again. Why wasn't Obama put on the rack about his personal and political connections during the 2008 Presidential campaign?

Why didn't the media hammer Obama six years ago with these questions?

Obama's early history is sealed up tighter than a frog's butthole, where were the reporters then?

Never mind, we know...
