Okay, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

 

 

It's definitely an investment, but each of my laptops have lasted me at least 8 years, so in 22 years, this will only be my 3rd laptop.

 

I've had over 1 thousand ones to half that. The most expensive one didn't last me long and I took care of it to no avail. I'm looking for something cheap! Times are tough.

CNET blog is pretty informative and they have a YouTube channel too.

Had Toshiba stayed in the game and continued to manufacture laptops for the consumer market, I would have been buying another Toshiba Qosmio but they are not, so I had to look around and it's been months now. I really have been looking for a year, even before my laptop took its last gasp. At this point, I really can't put it off any longer. It's impacting my ability to get things done.

As always, the people who enable hatemongers like Greene while being seen as "nice" or "not like the others" upset me the most.

 

 

They all want us to die. Some just hide their grins.

Democrats already have so much going against them, and are barely hanging on, and yet messaging failures like this still get dumped all over national television.

I wish that people understood that retweeting trolls like Greene, even to dunk on her, only gives her what she wants.

She's nothing more than a freshman right-wing Congressional carnival barker, parrotting destructive conspiracy theories. She's not even seated on any committees, yet she gets attention... because?

Meanwhile, you have a Congresswoman like Lauren Underwood who , in her freshman year in Congress, actually proposed and saw through meaningful bills into legislation, with little fanfare or recognition. The only time the media seemingly paid any attention to Rep. Underwood was when they tried to concoct a faux struggle to hold her seat narrative.

 

I agree, if the media won't, at least, everyday people should stop amplifying her antics.

I'm torn. She represents the heart of today's GOP, and much of their voter base. I'm more annoyed when media darlings are peddled out as an example of the "big tent."

I remember when VP Harris was the VP-elect and was getting those intelligence briefings, making an end-run around the previous administration's intransigence and remarked at what a smart move it was. Some men (and even some women, sadly) believe that women can't be effective tacticians and strategists, but when you make such an assumption, you underestimate women at your own peril.
