This is just about all the Counties in the USA, now. Even two in Hawaii were so designated, today. LOTs of tax money flowing to corporate farming operations due to the nationwide drought situation.

Those farming operations need to go back to small farmers and the middle class.

Dear #google ,

It's me again. I use g+ on my mbp with Safari, on my iPad Air with your app, and on my iPhone with your app. Why is it that all three devices show different items in my stream, some the same, but mostly different? I can set them all side-by-side-by-side, update them all at once, and get three different stream results for the same stream. In this instance, it's my All stream, but the same thing happens in any stream.

Also, nothing in my streams appear in time sequence. I'd really like to see the most recent item at the top and then, items in descending time sequence below that.

I'd also like for All to actually be "all" items from all my circles.

I know you're busy breaking the whole Google user experience apart, but maybe you can fix some of these things along the way.

Well, I had a nice nap and think I'll look at it again tomorrow. I usually use Safari or my iPad, so I'll try the individual circle attempt. I wish I could get a single column on the iPad. Google seems to think everyone can read tiny print. I guess I'll have to find the #oldfart network!

Why doesn't #googleplus  accept drag & drop from any other app on OS X any more? I've had this problem since 10.10.4 OS X. Doesn't work from other instances of Safari and doesn't work from Mail. The only thing it continues to work with is Finder. Can you at least let us know what may be going on?

#yellowonthursday I would have posted sooner but this Vogon plant stung me with one of those points and I have just managed to crawl back to report.

Despite a Supreme Court ruling in favor of, and many State Legislatures passing laws supporting it, Boston Police Commissioner Evans wants to criminalize the act of filming police officers. ‹headdesk› I think we've proven that the only way to keep the police "honest" is by filming them or suing their departments for millions of dollars. Apparently PC Evans wants to keep the "good ol' days".

Politics 101

Disruption is not "free speech". In fact, disruption of this nature is counterproductive to the point of many people making an out-of-hand dismissal of the people purporting to be the voice of the BLM movement and their message. (If you want people to hear your message, get your own forum, plan your own event, and pay for the facilities yourself.)

The audience  will say...

I had to drive X miles, endure X° of heat, and navigate the crowd because I wanted to hear Bernie Sanders speak. But I didn't get to because a couple assholes shoved their way onto stage, pushed him out of the way, and demanded we listen to their political message. Uh... No. Not what I came for.

Yes, they have a message that is important. But let's turn this around. Let's say Bernie Sanders showed up in Ferguson, MO on the one year anniversary of the Michael Brown shooting, shoved his way on stage and pushed Michael Brown's father away from the microphone, and demanded everyone listen to his political message... I doubt that would go over very well.

Or you go to a concert to see you favorite group X. As they take the stage, a group of people clamor onstage, kick X's asses, throw them off stage, and begin playing their own songs. The audience boo's. They people onstage call the audience names and demand to be heard and that the audience comply with their requests. Would the audience be happy?

Politics 101: (a)

It's not about you. It's not about your message. It is about the audience and their perception and acceptance of you and your message. If you don't understand and respect that, you will never be able to sway people to your cause. It is called "politicking" and it is an art that requires great finesse. MLK understood this, Malcolm X did not. (Donald Trump does not.) Once you anger an audience, especially a majority audience (Seattle is 70% White, 8% Black...), you have defeated yourself, no matter how right or truthful or honest or heartfelt your message is.

A LOT of people are doing a LOT of hard work to change America for the better in the BLM movement. Too many people are sacrificing too much in this effort on both a local and National scale to let a couple people screw it up for everyone.

Hey #google  . It's me. Yeah, I noticed you changed the screen header around... again. It's interesting that there is no icon to the right of the notification bell when I'm scrolling down screen, yet the mouse turns into a finger when hovered over that area. Of course, clicking does nothing. Will you be bringing back the icon with the options to start an impromptu chat or hangout?
