“News2Share’s cameras capture bitter street battles as word leaks of Roe v. Wade’s overturning

Ford Fischer and his News2Share cameras were busy in the last weeks, as dueling protests between pro-choice and and pro-life activists visited the Supreme Court, the homes of several of its justices, the DC Medical Examiner’s office, and other locations.

This is a 26-minute video that shows a broad range of activist responses to the leaked news of an opinion written by Samuel Alito purporting to overturn Roe v. Wade. The motive behind the leak remains among the more compelling (and impenetrable) Washington mysteries in recent times. There are theories the draft was leaked to prevent a conservative judge from having a change of heart, and theories it was leaked by the other side to stimulate fundraising. News from this week, in which a Senate gambit to enshrine abortion rights through legislation failed, did little to elucidate the situation.

The News2Share cameras capture the astonishing variety of emotions and seemingly unthinkable new bedfellows brought about by the leak. “Existential” makes a predictable appearance, as does coat hanger imagery, but would you believe left and right activists teaming up in a nervous co-demonstration (“Trans rights begin at conception!” shouts one protester). There is violence, with a pro-lifer kicked in the hind-parts, one California demonstrator “unarrested” in the face of rising crowd upset, and other episodes. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been highly visible at pro-choice demonstrations, also makes an appearance.

More as the story develops. Thanks to Ford and the News2Share crew.”

I Am Breaking The Chain!

According to the receipt…I apparently have just about $2875.00 worth of hatred towards your guts.

You will never again get another dollar out of me, for your shitty operating systems.

I hope your headquarters burns to the ground…now, and every single time you rebuild that hell hole.

I am now a Macintosh user…for whatever all that brings with it…I expect it to be a good change…but I am stepping into a personal abyss with this change.

Of course, I’ll continue to keep using this PC…In fact, I may still need it to run certain software…So, I don’t expect to shelve it anytime soon…but I will no longer be prisoner to you, with regard to my simple blogging…or accessing the internet and my various accounts.

Dearest Microsoft…

Fuck You! for all you’ve put me through, over the past year and a half…

Fuck You! for any of my preferred software, that I wont be able to use on my new Mac…

Fuck You! for all the work I’m about to be put through, transferring files and software…

Fuck You! for putting another roadblock in the way, and taking me away from my blogging and other activities while I’m tending to this…

Fuck You! for putting me in such an insufferable position, that I’m forced to make this move right now…

Fuck You! for backing me into a corner, and making me spend all of this money when it should be going to other things…

Fuck You! for the contempt and disrespect you’ve committed towards me…

Fuck You! for being a bunch of stupid motherfuckers, who cant build an OS that isn’t completely vulnerable to Russian hackers…And you “experts” have been doing this for how many decades?!…Dumb bastards…

Fuck You! for licking the FBIs asshole on demand, and forcing your treacherous Windows 10 malpractice hack job down our throats, without even the courtesy of a simple forewarning on what to expect…

Fuck You! for being complete assholes…


To my beloved readers…

…Please forgive my chronic bitching and fit throwing, over the last year in particular…This ordeal has caused me a great deal of stress and turmoil…a ton of anger…I’ve been dealing with a crippled machine, for well over a year…and it is entirely Microsofts fault.

I appreciate all the technical advice I’ve been given…my only reason for not doing it [aside from holding out, in hopes Microsoft would fix its OS], is that I am no techie…and I’ve seriously screwed up at least one of my main PCs in the past, trying to fix or enhance something…I have a ton of files and content to get backed up onto some other device, while I continue to be very active online, with this PC…I’m not going to do anything major, until I get my stuff backed up…I’d rather die, than lose my work…I just don’t even care to go on, if I lose my past work.

I’m honestly quite excited about unboxing my new Mac…and hope I did not make a mistake in this purchase…I didn’t encounter any other non-WinBlows options [IE: Linux], though I know this store has carried a few such options in the past…But, I always kind of wanted to try a Macintosh, anyway…They’re just so damn expensive…But, I guess it’s my new baby now.

Windows 11 Must Be Stopped – A Veteran PC Repair Shop Owner’s Dire Warning – Jody Bruchon…

Date: May 16, 2022

“The requirements for Windows 11 include UEFI, Secure Boot, and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM). This is how Microsoft will make every piece of computing hardware submit to their whims within the next decade. Do you own your computer or not?”

Windows 11 Must Be Stopped: THE SEQUEL – Jody Bruchon:

“This is a follow-up to my popular Windows 11 video. I respond to several of the common comments and criticisms and give a lot more detail. Unfortunately, it’s a long one, but none of it wastes your time. Feel free to speed it up, or listen instead of watch.”

Microsoft does whatever it wants, whenever it wants…and the nameless, faceless people behind all of this are entirely out of reach…or even contact…as far as I can see.

I’m currently dealing with the layered on bullshit, of the chronic reboot raping Microsoft has been doing to me for a year and a half, with rapid fire updates that wont stop coming…

…I literally rebooted to install…just to have this system tell me I had another update waiting for install, after it became stable again…So, I reboot the day after last reboot…just to have another fucking update appear the very next day, after two days of rebooting and waiting…Fucking Microsoft CUNTS!!!

This is the primary reason my activity has fallen off a cliff these last few days…and I still have to reboot for the third update…It’s complete bullshit…I cant even use this piece of shit computer…

I need to do some serious backup of data and work…do a reboot to get that out of the way…then I’m going to try installing something from Microcunts […Oh!…Excuse me…Microshit…Oops!…Microshaft…Oh!, you know what I mean!], which is supposed to reinstall and fix fundamental registries…code…whatever…critical stuff for WinBlows 10.

Why wont they just leave me the fuck alone?

I think…I just might go into “the big city”, and buy a Mac…Maybe I’ll do it tonight…Take my first step at migration…Jesus, I fucking hate this…I have no idea what all I’m going to be losing, where it comes to all my favorite software I am familiar with and use religiously…and what purchased licenses may no longer be of use to me…and all the pain in the ass, of moving my content to a new computer…juggling everything all over the place, so I don’t lose anything [which is highly probable to happen]…I don’t want to have to relearn new software, or buy any licenses.

I more less have this PC how I want it, software, links and folder structure wise…It’s logged into so, so many of my online accounts…and now I’m going to have to manually get an entire new computer up to speed with that…Fuck!…

I’m not buying another WinBlows PC…Those fuckers are to invasive, and they don’t give a single fuck about their customers.

Car-free neighborhoods share simple patterns: key design tips…

….

Date: May 16, 2022

“From agile neighborhoods for veterans or the unhoused to pocket hoods for Portlanders, the dozens of co-housing villages designed by Mark Lakeman are nationally recognized and in demand.

“All my work, and all the permaculture, comes under an overall unifying heading. That is ReVillaging, you might say,” he explained, “With USA neighborhoods being mostly expressions of development-driven goals, they are more products than villages, featuring the fewest community gathering places of all “1st world” countries.

For over 25 years, Lakeman has been creating urban places where community can grow. He took us for a tour of Portland where he’s helped build Dignity Village – the legal encampment for formerly homeless -, converted old apartments into Kailash Permaculture Village, and designed the back-to-back co-housing villages Cully Grove and Cully Green. He gave us a tour of the two “very intentional, dense, urban retrofit villages.”

Both villages are built with fairly traditional architecture, but it’s the orientation that is novel. All the homes- complete with porches- are facing each other; there are no driveways or roads to ruin the atmosphere, but instead, country lanes that wander through vegetation.

Lakeman believes in rules for creating a successful village, much of which is influenced by Kevin Lynch’s 1960 text “The Image of the City.” “The best villages in the world are characterized by a menu of consistent elements or patterns,” explains Lakeman. “The first would be that when you come to the perimeter of a village that there’d be a celebration of the passage through the boundary, and so gateways are important.” He points out that gateways aren’t like gated communities but meant to be welcoming. Perimeters are also essential: he specifies that, at Cully Green, there is an abundant, fruiting, and self-watering landscape.

Once on the inside, great communities have a network of paths, but they’re not purely functional. “The paths themselves are meant to be like a journey… not just to get you from one place to another. You’re supposed to be enjoying yourself. And you’re constantly arriving at nodes of interest and activity.” All of these nodes of activity lead to a central commons “where everyone knows that they belong.” Cully Green has both a central lawn for community gatherings and barbecues, and also a large permaculture garden and orchards.

“We’ve become kind of lazy like we just consume a house as a product and then we liquidate it as an investment and we don’t root and realize that our continuity in a place would actually give us the wealth of having observed with that place over time. It’s so integral to our identity… to be actually a part of some social ritual with each other.”
