West Word for the Alt-Right

Saw West World with Yul Brynner many years ago. it was one one of the first SCIFI movies with robots. Haven't seen the TV version yet, but one of my FaceBook pals, Ruben Betancourt, says it is terrific.

This is a concept for an alt-right version of West World. 

 

Donald Trump is the sheriff is a perfect American town. His deputies are all West World robots who patrol the town to make sure all the towns people fly American flags. The deputies also have mock gunfights with the townspeople for entrancement.

No one got hurt until some Russian and Wikileaks hackers mistakenly break into the West World mainframes, turning the deputy robots into killers. The  deputies start shooting up the villagers who had flag violations. Anyone driving while black in the village was also gunned down.  Women wearing a Hijab or men Wearing turbans  were also attacked.

The Donald called up Jeff Sessions and asked him to send some of his white knights to West Word for help. The militia men drove into town if full Klan regalia in jeeps and humvees.

Gunfights between the robots and the Klan went on for several days until the robo-deputies were driven form the town.

The leader of the robos is named Jules Berner. He is wanted deactivated or alive. 

Sheriff Donald Trump was elated and opened the  town saloon to the victors who we allowed to play grabass with the robo-dance hall girls. Many of the robo-ladies were refurbed Stepford wives.
According to Sheriff trump. all of the robo-ladies are 10's


Ensuing episodes will show  the White Knight and militia men hunting down the escaped robo-deputies, Silicon Valley has built a Underground Railloop to help the robots who are still on the lam.

Canon Imageclass MF4770 printer maintenance mode

My Canon MF4770 multifunction printer could send an receive faxes, but could not print faxes that were received.  So I thought,  time for a new printer.

It's an amazing laser printer that can copy, print  and fax, They are usually about $100 when on sale.

Canon technical may not be much help unless you fax them a receipt showing you own the canon printer. Some of the Canon multifunction printers are CARP raster scanning printers. It is hard to find Linux drivers for these printers. The MF 4770 works great in Linux Mint 17 and 18. The updated version, the MF216n doe not have a Linux driver. If you can't find a Canon printer driver on Canon USA, try Canon UK.

If you bought your printer through Staples or Office Depot in the past couple of years, you my be able to go to their respective web sites, create an online account and download proof of your past purchases.

There are a lot of solutions on the Internet for getting into Canon Maintenance mode. Suspect there are different sequences for different Canon printers. Once you get into maintenance mode, the options may be different based up the firmware version.

This particular sequence works on a MF4770 with a boot ROM of 1.07.

Press Menu, then 2, 8 and Menu again. 

Most problems can be cleared by by going into COPIER, FUNCTION, CLEAR, ALL. This printer should then reboot.

Use the back key  to back out of the maintenance menus. 

Then turn the printer off and back on again. 

Tried the maintenance fix on my old MF4770. after clearing the copier functions it was able to receive faxes again.

What is the fuss about in the Republican National Convention?

Donald Trump wants his Evangelical police (EP) to monitor the convention. The EP's are armed with metal rulers and will slap the wrists of anyone involved in hanky panky on the floor of the convention.

Trump has already had a major sex scandal when it was revealed that former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and press secretary Hope Hicks were secret lovers. Trump staffer Sam Nunberg got fired over the story and also because he revealed Trump had a secret and illegal campaign finance account.. Trump is suing Nunberg for $10 million for violating a non-disclosure agreement.

The EPs are also passing out Hanzoff anti-mastubatory gum. This is a real product you can buy at Amazon.com. Ina addition, the Trump has ordered that saltpeter be added to any sandwiches or finger food served at the the event. The Donald wants to keep the convention pure in accordance with conservative Evangelical standards,

Fappy the anti-masturbation porpoise will also be at the event. He was recently bonded out of of jail for public indecency when he was caught polishing his own porpoise. Fappy is very popular with conservative and Evangelical children.

Property Christians will also be prominently featured in the event. Will Joel Osteen, the Chistian Prosperity king be there? Hard to say, but but hidden in the schedule is Rev. Mark Burns, an enigmatic and sometimes gaffe-prone  African American pastor from South Carolina. Burns who has been a big Trump supporter. He may even plug the capitalistic Trump Institution.


Whether you vote Republican not, this convention should be an eye opener.

How to extend the life of an electric water heater.

You can double the life of an electric water heater by replacing the sacrificial anode. If you had your electric water heater replaced, change out the anode after 6 months and every year thereafter. Changing out the anode can double the life of the water heater,

The anode is a threaded bar usually made of magnesium. Water, iron, magnesium and calcium in the water will attack the anode before it attacks the tank and its heating elements. If elements start to fail, consider replacing the anode at the same time.

You will need to purchase two items to remove the anode. One is a 1/2 inch impact wrench and the other is a 1-1/16 socket. Th electric wrench from Harbor Freight is a simpler alternative than a pneumatic wrench that requires a compressor. This wrench can also easily remove lug nuts to change out a tire.
You will also need the 1-1/16 socket to remove the anode.
And a replacement anode. You can see the difference between the new and old anodes. Besides scale, the old anode will have pock marks all over it where the magnesium has been eaten away, Make sure both anodes are the same length. Cut the new anode to the correct size with a hack saw if you have to.
At the this point, you can start the installation.

  1. Turn off power to the water heater.
  2. Torn off the water supply to the power heater. 
  3. Drain out about two gallons from the tank by opening the valve at the bottom of the heater, Connect a hose to the valve if necessary to drain a few gallons form the tank. If you open the pressure release valve at the top of the tank, no water should be released,
  4. The tank will have  2 inch cut out in it with a plastic insert on top of the anode, Remove the plastic insert and cut around the insulation with a paring knife. Remove the insulation to expose the cap on the anode.
  5. Place the socket over the anode to make sure your have a snug fit. Attach the impact wrench and hold it tightly before giving a 4 second reverse burst. A second burst may be needed. At this point you should be able to unscrew and remove the old anode. 
  6. Make sure the new anode is the same length as the old and put two turns of Teflon tape or plumbers putty around the screw threads. Hand tighten the anode into the tank and give a forward burst with the impact wrench, 
  7. Turn the water back on. At this, open the valve and let the tank drain for 5 minutes and then close the valve. 
  8. Replace the insulation in the hole for the anode and snap the plastic cap back on.  
  9. Turn the power back on to the hot water heater. 
You are finished.

Pituitray disease is progressive and often fatal if not detected




It is not uncommon for a woman to damage or destroy their pituitary during pregnancy. One of the reasons is that the pituitary increases its size by one-third during pregnancy. The pituitary sits behind the nose in a a bony carapace called the sella.

If an empty sella condition is identified during an MRI of your brain, your are missing your pituitary, which can be a serous and often fatal disease.

Sometimes the pituitary stalk will take over for the pituitary and you may be only deficient in just one pituitary hormone. Pituitary disease iS progressive. It may take may years for the endocrine system to fail.

When you are in the process of losing the entire endocrine system, the term panhypopituitarism is used

First to go is the growth hormone (GH), next the gonadotropins (LH and FSH) which control sexual/reproductive functions, followed by thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) which controls thyroid hormone release, and finally the Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) which controls adrenal function.

If you have low LH and FSH you may also lose your sense of smell and taste.

Most endocrinologists (endo) will look for hypothyroidism first because there is really no replacement therapy for LH and FSH. Often the blood tests for thyroid simulating hormone (TSH) are inconclusive even after months of testing. An endo may give you a small dose levothyroxine to see if your feel better. People who are hypothyroid may be sensitive to cold and have a low pulse (bradycardia). Most people with thyroid conditions do not feel well at all.


Adrenal insufficiency is dangerous because you need cortisol in your system to survive. If cortisol get too low you may vomit, feel like your are spinning in a room and have and adrenal episode or crises. The latter results in death about 20 per cent of the time,

Adrenal insufficiency is not easy to test for. An endo has to inject an ACTH stimulator and monitor the response of the adrenal glands.

A damaged or missing pituitary may also result in diabetes insipidus a disease that is not related to diabetes mellitus I or II. In this case you wil constantly drink water and urinate every hour because you are missing the anitdiuretic hormone (ADH) that is actually produced in the hypothalamus.

The hypothalamus has a connection to the pituitary, providing a junction between the nervous system and the endocrine system,

If you are diagnosed with hypopituitarism or panhypopituitarism, it is important to have your GH tested, An endo can test your insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) level. If it is too low you need to be put on a somatropin or a growth hormone regimen.

This is important because people with pituitary disease have shortened life spans. Daily Somatropin injections have many benefits, but extending your life is the most important.

Jeb can't fix shit!

Mitt Romney said he would not run for president if Jeb bush did. He later told Jeb he thought his candidacy was a long shot.

Jeb was not a distinguished Florida governor. Like his brother, George, he entered politics at the gubernatorial level. Jeb claimed his greatest accomplishment was education, Florida public education has been in shambles since the Jeb Bush  was governor.

Jeb's big problem with his bother, George. George was a Big "F' failure as president. George an his neo-conservative pals may have brought down the World Trade Center in a false flag operation hoping to benefit Israel. Bush's invasion of Iraq was a monumental error and his ownership society nearly tanked both the US and international economies.

No, even the Republicans remembered George W. Bush, the comedy about him, and had no interest in putting another Bush in the White House. Jeb lacked the charisma of his brother and never did well in the GOP primaries, finishing poorly even in Florida.

Jeb even had problems in Florida raising campaign finances because many pundits believed Marco Rubio was a better candidate. Yet, Jeb amassed the biggest war chest of all the Republicans,  estimated between $115 and $150 million.

His brother used the same approach to win the GOP nomination in 2000 by outspending his opponents in the primaries and the caucuses.

Jeb went thought the campaign cash, winning 0 delegates. At the end of his candidacy he took out a loan to keep the campaign going.

Big mistake. The pundits were right. Rubio was a better candidate.

Jeb now has a $260,000 debt with $31,000 left of campaign funds.

Should you fell sorry for him?

Not at all.

Cruzader Ted and the Virgin Heidi

Cruzader Ted met Heidi Nelson during the 2000 GW Bush presidential campaign. This was before she she worked as a banskster for Goldman Sachs. On the third date, Ted touched Heidi's shoulder and there was a flash of light. Heidi instantly knew that she was pregnant.

In April 2008, Heidi Cruz gave birth to her first child, Caroline Camille Cruz. Her second daughter, Catherine Christiane Cruz was born three years alter after another flash of light form Ted Cruz' hand.

Ted said that Heidi's body is a temple. Her immaculate conception of two children was a miracle and Ted quickly realized he would no longer be a husband with benefits.

So did had to go to a nunnery to seek passion. Unfortunately for him, Anonymous found out about these rendezvous.


Ted is Magic man would said he could easily make Donald Trump “huge” again by touching him is a certain place, but why would he want to do that?


Ted said that after he is elected president,he will establish an American National Church that would end the myth of the separation of church and state once and for all. The Virgin Heidi would oversee the two Oracles, Caroline and Christiane, who would produce prophesies and intelligence estimates for the United States.

Jeb and Marco's suspended campaigns no surprise.



Jeb had been out of politics for many years and his two terms as the Florida governor were lackluster. Mitt Romney warned him about running for president. Americans haven't forgotten his brother, George W., and the damage he did to the US and world economies

Donald Trump said “Frankly, he’s (Jeb) a stiff. He’s not a guy who can be president. He doesn’t have what it takes to be president.”

Trump has a point. Jeb has no fire in his belly. Jeb never stood out in the numerous GOP debates. We don't need a Casper Milktoast as our next president.

It never amazes me how Republicans enter the political arena at the senatorial and gubernatorial level with no prior political experience. The was true of the two Bush brothers and Mitt Romney. Trump is running for president with no political experience and so were Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina.

Marco's problems are numerous starting with financial irregularities when he was a Florida legislator, Marco was also linked to two women during the campaign which certainly hurt him with Evangelicals. He also indicated he disliked being a Senator.

“I don’t know that ‘hate’ is the right word. I’m frustrated.” Marco told the Washington Post.

Marco was famous for his robotic recital of well rehearsed sound bites. For example. he said "the children of the Reagan Revolution are ready to assume the mantle of leadership" in a speech after the South Carolina primary.

The millennials are the children of the “Reagan Revolution” and most are progressives and Bernie Sanders supporters according to a Frank Luntz focus group.

Marco missed many Senate votes. He accomplished little as a US Senator. This is also true for Ted Cruz, who engaged in one pointless political stunt after another that alienated his Senate colleagues.

Two men who are US senators with two years of national experience are running for president. Don't think either Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz have paid their political dues.

Our next president should not peddle into the White House on training wheels.

Marco got few Florida newspaper endorsements because he developed a reputation as being a lazy politician.


Agree with the Tampa Bay Times: Marco was not ready to be president. He wasn't ready to be a US Senator either.

How to deal with Donald Trump

Trump has said plenty of really stupid things, many of which his GOP opponents have glossed over.

He may be easier to beat in a debate than a lot of people think.  His irreverence  may work in front of many Republicans, but Democrats may find Trump rude and boorish.


When the general election occurs assuming Trump is still standing, the Democrats should assure groups of blacks, Hispanics/Latinos, Native Americans and Asians are prominently sitting together in the audience. This will freak Trump out who will be unable to remove them.

Protesters should also picket his arrival. Hope the Occupy Democrats show up in Cleveland and at the general election debates.

Fast forwarding to the general election, let's assume Hillary or Bernie is is debating Trump.

Let's assume Trump throws a grenade out Bill Clinton's past infidelities. The Democrats should respond about the nude and semi-nude photos of Melania Trump are on the Internet.

When veterans issues comes up, it should be noted that Trump mocked a disabled person at a rally, “Now, the poor guy — you've got to see this guy,,” mocking New York Times investigative reporter Serge Kovaleski. Likewise, how can his escapades with women as a young man be compared to service in Vietnam. Trump has also disparaged John McCain's military service and his internment as a POW while Trump get 5 deferments to stay out of the war.

When racism comes up, it should be noted it took him several days before he repudiated David Dukes endorsement. Can he prove that Mexicans are bringing drugs, bringing crime and rapists to the US?

When immigrants and “the wall” are mentioned, he needs to explain why H2-B Romanian workers are given preference over US workers in his county club in Palm Beach. 

How can Muslim immigrants be prevented form entering the US. What is the legal basis for such an action?

When Trump mentions his business acumen, he should be asked to explain his four bankruptcies and why he was unable to get a gaming license in Nevada,

Also. why does Trump think is appropriate to punch a protester in the face or encourage people at his rallies to attack protesters? The US isn't WW2 fascist Germany

Why did he say, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters, okay?

Why did he suggest Hillary Clinton got schlonged in a close primary race with Obama? 

Constant Sexual innuendos 

 

Trump has attacked Carly Fiorina's appearance and implied Megyn Kelly was menstruating as a debate moderator. He has attacked celebrity females such as Bette Midler and Rosie O'Donnell as well. 

Why the constant sexual innuendos?

Trump: You know, it really doesn't matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass." He also says Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband or America."
