    What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?

    I had to rewatch the original Papillon (1973) A man befriends a fellow criminal as the two of them begin serving their sentence on a dreadful prison island, which inspires the man to plot his escape. Stars:Steve McQueen, Dustin Hoffman, Victor Jory Classic movie. Steve McQueen nails it! Dustin Hoffman is a great supporting actor!! **** 1/2

    Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) 19-year-old Billy Lynn is brought home for a victory tour after a harrowing Iraq battle. Through flashbacks, the film shows what really happened to his squad - contrasting the realities of war with America's perceptions. Excellent! Keeps you glued to the story. **** 1/2

    Thai post

    Some years ago I had vitamins sent to me via UPS and they got stopped at Don Muang, yes, it was a while ago.. I ended up making three trips to the airport, all the fays they were held in customs I had to pay a daily fee. UPS did absolutely zero to assist me. I finally got to the proper person in customs, showed them the cost, paid a small duty and rescued my vitamins. Lesson learned, never use UPS to ship to Thailand
  5. There is zero DC currents in fiber optic cables. Fiber optic cables are impervious to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Copper wires, if not properly installed, will produce electromagnetic currents that can interfere with other wires and wreak havoc on a network. Fiber optic cables, unlike copper cables, do not conduct electricity. https://www.google.com/search?q=do+fiber+optic+cables+use+any+electric&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b

    Didn't know they still make B- movies.. Guns of the Apocalypse (2018) In writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's "post-apocalyptic-spaghetti-Midwestern," a man with no name is forced into a world of danger and bloodshed after he saves a scientist and a gifted child from a horde of radiation-scarred mutants. Though he would prefer to stay hidden until he can escape to a new life, something about the child-and the murderous "Death Dealers" hunting her-makes him realize he has no choice but to protect her or risk being responsible for the potential extinction of the human race. Maybe this was a high school project? So bad, couldn't stop watching it 555 *

    The best back peddling ever seen! The Dems show what liars they are! what traitors they are!! now the sedition and coup is exposed once again!!! Pelosi: 'Not worth it' to impeach Trump House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that barring “overwhelming” new evidence she would not pursue impeachment against President Trump because it would be too divisive and “he’s just not worth it.” “I’m not for impeachment,” said Pelosi in an interview with the Washington Post published Monday. “This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/pelosi-not-worth-it-to-impeach-trump-204822650.html

    Claim centres to track down tourists who skip hospital bills

    Worse would be that any tourist coming to Thailand must have insurance...which would hurt the tourist industry. The big insurance companies offer coverage for those over 60, but once 70, the coverage is USA prices, like $1000/month or so.

    These people have done 147 docos completely exposing the Clinton Fraudulent Foundations! Over 300 hours, hundreds of documents to back up what they have found and links to all the documents. The evidence has been taken to the FBI and the FBI does nothing!! The USA justice system is broken and only President Trump can get it fixed, short of a military coup or a revolution!!! Of course all those suffering from TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) or those in love with Obama and the Clintons will deny the clear evidence that is presented.

    Snopes Getting Key Facts Wrong on Ocasio-Cortez Campaign Finance Scandal Left-leaning site exposed The left-leaning fact-checking website Snopes butchered facts about a PAC controlled by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide in a story published Thursday. Snopes writer Dan MacGuill falsely claimed in his story that Chakrabarti, who served as executive director of Justice Democrats in 2018, “was not an official agent or officer” of the PAC. He also failed to acknowledge the fact that he and Ocasio-Cortez are members of the PAC’s three-member board of directors, according to archived versions of the Justice Democrats website and corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. Former Federal Election Commission member Brad Smith told TheDCNF that Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide “could be facing jail time” if they knowingly and willfully withheld their control over Justice Democrats from the commission in order to bypass campaign contribution limits. Snopes joins CNN, ABC News, NBC News, The Washington Post, Business Insider and Market Watch in failing to disclose the facts surrounding Ocasio-Cortez’s control over the PAC in stories about the freshman Democrat’s mounting campaign finance scandals. Trump Derangement Syndrome has become the out-of-touch-with-reality political platform perfectly embodied by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Archived copies of the Justice Democrats website reveal Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti held “legal control over” the PAC starting in December 2017, and that Chakrabarti was one of its “major players” up until January 2019. http://dailycallernewsfoundation.org/2019/03/08/snopes-gets-key-facts-wrong-on-ocasio-cortez-campaign-finance-scandal/

    The darling is self-destructing... AOC Chief of Staff Funneled Over $1 Million in PAC Money To Private Firms — Report ‘I’ve never seen a more ambitious operation to circumvent reporting requirements,’ says government watchdog group Two political actions committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s Chief of Staff funneled over $1 million into his own private companies, according to reports. The cash transfers came from the PACs Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats, which Saikat Chakrabarti founded, according to a complaint filed to the Federal Election Commission. “It appears Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her associates ran an off-the-books operation to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, thus violating the foundation of all campaign finance laws: transparency,” said Tom Anderson, director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s Government Integrity Project, a government watchdog group. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/ocasio-cortezs-chief-of-staff-ran-1m-slush-fund-by-diverting-campaign-cash-to-his-own-companies

    Tiger (2018) A practicing Sikh is banned by the boxing commission for refusing to back down from his religious beliefs. Through racial profiling and stereotypical threats, he does what any strong American would do, fight back. Interesting flick, a good watch. ****
