YAHOO E-mail

For the most part, I like my YAHOO service. That is to say, I needn't think too much about it. I don't really know how it all works and don't really care; when I turn on the computer, it's just there like my car just starts when I turn the key.

But, somebody always has to tinker with something that is working fine and that throws a cog in the wheel of the total computer web experience. To whit, email worked well and stuff went where I wanted it to go. A month ago, YAHOO did some updating and now mail goes wherever it wants no matter what my instructions. Here is what I wrote to YAHOO service:

Since the E-Mail updates a month ago, items NOT SPAM are labeled as spam and items that ARE SPAM are allowed into the inbox.

Moments ago, I received a 1979 family with my Grandmother and my father, both deceased. The Spam Filter sent it to spam. I must check the spam file before I do anything.

No matter how many times I ID items as spam they still arrive to the inbox. Those I clearly mark SPAM over and over again, still end up in the inbox.

Also, mailings from Conservative or Republican political groups end up in Spam, but Liberal or Democrat crap always goes to inbox. Just a little YAHOO political bias?
I attempted to send the missive, but a notice told me my concern was needing the assistance of a service representative, maybe Dave in New Delhi. It got too involved after that, so I decided to post it here because YAHOO and other companies monitor blogs for reference to their company and often respond quicker than Dave in New Delhi.

It's Come to This

Shameful. Just nine months into the Obama regime and it's come to this. An Orange County Register story headline announced today, "Free pet food for jobless and seniors".

Shouldn't we exhaust the supplies of people food for the unemployed and elderly before feeding then pet food? Used to be that pet food was the very last resort of the jobless and elderly. Now we give it away free right at the start.

In a related story at Gateway Pundit, Victoria University professors Brenda and Robert Vale are advising we eat our precious Fido, Fluffy, and other pets to save the planet.

Well, I suppose Obama can't be deprived of his Wagu Beef at $125 a serving.

Anyone remember "A Boy and His Dog" from 1975 starring Don Johnson?

Obama Camp Spoon Fed MSM

Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director and admirer of communist murderer Mao Tse-tung admitted the Obama campaign "controlled" the media by "making" the MSM focus on the issues of particular interest to Obama thus steering the press away from covering the deceptive and controlling tactics, as if that were ever a possibility. Dunn spoke on videotape at a Dominican Republic conference January 12, 2009 during which she made these seemingly innocuous statements:

Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control."
"One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe [chief Obama campaign manager] videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters."
"We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it."
"Whether it was a David Plouffe video or an Obama speech, a huge part of our press strategy was focused on making the media cover what Obama was actually saying as opposed to why the campaign was saying it, what the tactic was. … Making the press cover what we were saying."

You Tube
All of you who knew it to be true during the campaign that the MSM was suckling at the teat of Obama and his acolytes and were telling your liberal Democrat friends and family who weren't listening to you, raise your hands. Good for you; you're smarter than most voters.

If you're holding a cup of your favorite beverage - coffee, tea, Ovaltine - please put it down so you don't spew it onto the monitor. Good.


I know you aren't surprised, I wasn't. Now, however, we have the White House Communications Director verifying what we already knew but team Obama and the MSM were denying. And it's on videotape.
