  1. I think I just noted that is not always the case? But I think your comment is mostly correct. That saying is just a short cut way of communicating that all too often the history someone learns does not reflect what really happened but the reality that those in power want you to believe. Just like news (next years history) is often spun in ways to further the agenda, profit or protect those who are in currently in power. The book 1984 was intended to be a warning, not an instruction manual for those currently in power.
  2. Somehow the US government decided I needed extra stimulus. Maybe from reviewing my internet searches. I suppose that isn't unusual at my age.
  3. Agree. We are looking at leaving a property empty for months at a time while we are back in the USA which is different than leaving for a few hours or days.
  4. Regarding it not being a wise decision to leave a home unoccupied in the Philippines there will be exceptions to that rule if you live close to family you trust and/or live a humble/simple life.
  5. I did Phizer, 11 days since the second shot. Only a bit of an ache in the arm that night on the first shot. Second shot was a bit more of an ache and a slight fever on day 2. My wife has had the first shot of Moderna. She really got an achy sore arm from that. She hasn't had the second shot yet. We decided to get the vaccine at different days so if we had a strong reaction we wouldn't get it at the same time.
  6. Thank you for starting this topic. It is timely in that the wife and I are considering purchasing a place in the Philippines but don't plan on living there full time. Maybe just snowbird, spending 3-5 months a year there during the winter. We would own a home in the US where it is easier and safer to leave a home unoccupied during the winter months. In the Philippines the impression I have is that it is not a good idea to leave a home unoccupied for longer than a day or two. You really need to have someone there to look after it. A couple years ago we stayed 4 days at an AirBnB in Th
  7. Our daughter is 3 now and is an only child. By late spring last year we decided we really needed to get her out so she could socialize more. But the opportunities were very limited. We found a mall 30 miles away with a large play area that was still open and would visit that almost weekly. We tried to enroll her in a preschool last fall then they closed. Finally some local playgrounds opened last fall so we could get her out to socialize more. She would make a quick friend then the other child would have to leave and our daughter would get very upset that her new friend was leaving. She really
  8. What the hell does a federal cybersecurity group know about how local officials stuff ballot boxes and harvest mail in ballots? President does not claim that votes were changed over the internet in election computers by some hackers. I listened to his long list of election fraud claims in his speech yesterday. Many of them are credible but there is no way to identify which votes are fraudulent once they cross the line into the counted pile.The only way to fix the problem would be to do the election again but with very tight controls on how the vote is conducted. FYI, I am not a Donald support
  9. I wonder if a toxicology report was done to see if there were any 'date rape' drugs used.
  10. Google quote: "Don't be evil unless you can build awesome Terminator's".
  11. My inlaws live in the northern luzon mountains. In my visits over 7 years they have had spotty cell phone service and no data. Finally because of COVID and the need for remote learning internet access via cell phone data has finally reached them. Maybe I won't be so bored next time we visit.
  12. HK, election fraud is a great American sport with a long history. The democrat party is known for harvesting votes of people that should have long ago been removed from the list of registered voters due to moving, death etc. The Republicans are known for dirty tricks to try and suppress voter turnout in heavily democrat precincts. They pass laws and implement methods of voting to ensure there are ways to cheat. The media doesn't report on this much and most of the national media for this election have ignored anything that doesn't support the Democrats. The courts require evidence and the
  13. In the US the election is really done precinct by precinct, county by county. There is no one single way to vote in the US, each state, county and even precinct may use different methods. Each has their own level of risk for fraud. Some fraud happens due to corrupt election/government officials at the polling place and some happens by organized efforts to "harvest" more votes. If you follow the news you likely already understand that only a few number of swing states determined the outcome of the election. Within those states only a few counties could swing the election one way or the other.
