America has been saved.

To those of you who supported Clinton and lost.  You are probably feeling a tightness in your chest and a deep concern that everything you hold dear and value is now at risk.  I understand this feeling.  Indeed, I have been carrying that very same weight for the last 8 years.  You may not believe it possible that anyone under Obama's administration could possibly have felt that way, at least not "right thinking" people.  But I assure you that I was not alone in carrying that weight, and we are all relieved that we can finally put it down.  As someone who is intimately familiar with what you are going through now, I can offer a few words of encouragement. Keep breathing, the weight will get lighter but it will never go away.  You will get used to carrying it and perhaps you will eventually realize that as my rights are now being respected, so will yours.  No one is “more equal” now.  Political correctness is now dead.

Comcast Cable Modem Signal Levels:
If the above steps have not resolved the connection issue, try viewing your modem’s status page and compare the signal levels to the following:
Downstream Power Level: -15dBmV to +15dBmV is the extreme limits that your modem should be able to operate within but ideally this should fall between -10dBmV and +10dBmV
Downstream Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR): This number is best over 35dB, but you may not have any problems with down to 33dB. Anything less and you will probably have slow transfers, dropped connections, etc.
Upstream Power Level: Ideally this should be within the 30dBmV to 50dBmV range. If it is between 50-55dBmV, you are approaching the upper-limits but should still be able to operate. If this is above 55dBmV or below 30dBmV, you will likely start to see frequent disconnects or modem reboots.
Upstream Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR): Anything above 29 is considered good. The higher this number is, the better. If this number is below 25 and 29, you have a minute amount of noise leaking in somewhere. If it's anything less than 25, you want to get it fixed as you may have a lot of packet loss or slow transfer rates. note: you will need to contact customer support to find out the value of this signal level as it is not available via the cable modem status page
Upstream Receive Power: Ideally this number should fall within the -10dBmV and +10dBmV range. note: you will need to contact customer support to find out the value of this signal level as it is not available via the cable modem status page

America has been saved.

Political correctness died on 11/9/2016


Excepts from President-Elect Trump's speech on 11/9/2016

It is a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds, and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people -- and serve the people it will.

We will embark upon a project of national growth and renewal. I will harness the creative talents of our people, and we will call upon the best and brightest to leverage their tremendous talent for the benefit of all. It is going to happen.

...we will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us...

No dream is too big, no challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.

America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We must reclaim our country's destiny and dream big and bold and daring. We have to do that. We're going to dream of things for our country, and beautiful things and successful things once again.

I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America's interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with everyone. All people and all other nations.

We will seek common ground, not hostility; partnership, not conflict.


Sounds a bit like JFK...




"If we are strong, our strength will speak for itself.  If we are weak, words will be of no help."    From the address President Kennedy never got to deliver in Dallas November 22, 1963

"Predictable is preventable."  Gordon Graham

"If you can, find that peace within yourself, that peace and quiet and confidence that you can pass on to others, so that they know that you are honest and you are fair and will help them, no matter what, when the chips are down." Richard "Dick" Winters in an interview August 2004, American History Magazine

Piss Christ is a 1987 photograph by the photographer Andres Serrano. It depicts a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist's urine.
The piece was a winner of the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art's "Awards in the Visual Arts" competition, which was sponsored
in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a United States Government agency that offers support and funding for artistic projects, without controlling content.

In this Country nothing trumps freedom of speech. Not fear, not political correctness.
The answer to any perception of "hate" speech is not less speech, but more speech.
