Some Memes – And Purity!

I’ll be putting some “memes” in comments here, but just to get started:

How pure white is Elizabeth Warren?

Elizabeth Warren 99.9% White; Ivory Snow 99.44% pure white

Purer than the driven snow…

    Do we need to have “Senate Control”?

    How about “Senator Free Zones”?

  2. beththeserf says:

    Senate sanitizing?

  3. Larry Ledwick says:

    Not a meme per-se but it can be found here if needed.

  4. tom0mason says:

    Lets make everyone equal …

  5. E.M.Smith says:


    Don’t know why but that URL doesn’t display in the comment (does if you click) AND it was sent to SPAM. I’ve take the liberty of adding it to my media files so it can directly show.

    Oh that’s a good one!

  9. H.R. says:

    Not exactly a meme but I thought it would clutter up W.O.O.D. a bit too much so I put it here.

  10. Larry Ledwick says:

    Mark Dice has a new tee shirt on twitter:

  11. Larry Ledwick says:

    Best laugh I have had in a long time!

  12. Larry Ledwick says:

    Now for the rim shot

  13. E.M.Smith says:

    BA-dump-dump ;-0 was that the kind of rim shot you were meaning? ;-)

    I suspect the 1/1024 meme will be with us for a very very long time. Fauxcahontas has killed any hope she had for higher office… A “jump the shark” moment that can not be undone.

  15. Larry Ledwick says:

    Hmmm looks like our last couple images got pulled.

  16. Larry Ledwick says:

    Hmmm even more interesting, here on blue moon browser the last 9 images are not showing up, but on firefox they do. I wonder if word press or twitter are blocking bluemoon browser?

    I don’t think I have any settings that should do this as they were visible just a day or so ago.

  17. E.M.Smith says:

    Well, just to make it testable as to source, I’ve uploaded that 14th image to my media library:

  18. Larry Ledwick says:

    Hmmm something to do with the config of my browser, desktop or network a work, here at home no problem for all the images using bluemoon.

  19. E.M.Smith says:

    If it only happens at work, you may find that particular site (if they all come from the same image site) is being blocked by your employer. Many businesses run automatic NSFW filters to block sites that might get them a harassment or discrimination suit.)

    If it is only having effect on one browser, it may be due to differences in encryption or DNS lookup. (It is possible and desirable to set up encrypted DNS… ) So if both DNS and HTTPS are running encrypted, you bypass some of the nanny stuff… they have to look at actual IP numbers used…

    Also you sometimes find a proxy server that’s configured to not serve some sites.

  20. Larry Ledwick says:

    Issue only shows up on that one browser at work, same config as I have at home, but on the other browsers, the images show up just fine, so something about my system and that browser but have not sorted it out beyond that. The only reason I discovered it is that for some reason now your blog on wordpress via firefox is now starting to do some obnoxious things like autoplaying videos just because your mouse cursor passed over them as you moved across the page, or as you scroll the page it pulls down a window shade advert that you have to manually push back up each time you try to scroll the page (I think is a way for them to force click numbers on the adverts – I just close the browser now and reload the page, but have found Brave and palemoon don’t do that obnoxious stuff but on bluemoon you get the added benefit of not seeing those images.

    Sounds like something related to thirdparty ad blocking etc. on the work system.

  21. Larry Ledwick says:

    Looks like it is related to the “block all tracking sites” setting in fire fox if I set that to always the automatic advert play on cursor pass over stops but so does the ability to see those linked images from twitter.

    Change that setting to “only on private windows” and auto play resumes and the images are visible on that meme thread.

    If I view that memes thread in brave browser it still shows the images but blocks the obnoxious cursor triggered play of adverts.

  22. E.M.Smith says:

    Ah, tracking makes sense. If you had flagged them as the Twitter links I’d have jumped to that as Twitter is a notorious tracker.

    FWIW, I’m very back level on Firefox on the Mac (in the 40.x range) and get warnigs at some sites that they don’t support “back level” Firefox any more. Yet most of them still load OK.

    But this can’t last. It’s the stage just before things stop working.

    It can not be made any newer as the OS is at the limit too. So this machine is going to be EOL for software reasons “soon” (and as said before, the keyboard is going bald and the SSD died a couple of years ago). I’ve tried a couple of times to load a Linux, but having no network port there’s a complicated process to get WiFi working early so the rest of the OS can be loaded.

    Thus my interest in the Chromebook or Pinebook as replacement… With Linux on them, then I get a much broader choice of browsers.

    I have 4 on the Mac (Safari, Opera, FireFox, PaleMoon). Each works better for some things.

    The latest PITA is that both Starbucks and Peet’s have gone to some new kind of login hurdle. I need to make a new definitive “map” through it. I need to remember to shut off all the proxy / DNS settings from home but by then the “popup” has already happened and failed, so I end up rebooting to clear it all, and only some of the browsers work right to “accept” the terms (and it is different between the two stores..) and then StarBucks has instituted this tag where it emails you and then tags your machine as “approved”… Sigh. So I now mostly go to Peet’s ;-)

    Once I’ve settled on the replacement portable then I’ll make a “Starbucks Chip” used only at their places to isolate whatever it is they are doing… and Yet Another Phoney Email Account just for them…

    In general, PaleMoon works the best of the 4, then FireFox. The Safari is just too old and has issues on more sites. Opera has been bought by China meaning they get to see all your data as it flows through their “Turbo” compression engines – so it is no longer used other than for a “Accept connection” if it’s the only one to get me past the approval at a given site. Oh, and Turbo is shut off. (I cringe at all the folks bragging on the “free VPN” not realizing it is funneling all their comms through China services…)

    It’s a war between the average user and the information whores, and most people are in bed with the whores… Oh Well.

    Thus my repeated return to the topic of secure machines and systems. They ARE out to get you.

  23. Jon K says:
    I’m bad at this :(

  24. Larry Ledwick says:

  25. Larry Ledwick says:

    Jon K right click on the image and copy the image address

  26. Jon K says:

    Thanks Larry. I thought it would be like copying an embed video from youtube.

  27. E.M.Smith says:

    @Jon K:

    Oh, and WordPress doesn’t like the ?format and size stuff… So I’ll change that ending to:
    …i5P.jpg instead

  28. Larry Ledwick says:

    GAB just posted this meme on twitter

  29. Larry Ledwick says:

  30. E.M.Smith says:

    Still waiting for Gab to reconstitute .. loved the Meme…

    I’d offer them my services for free had a clue where or how to do so.

    The MUST return and they MUST dominate.

  31. Larry Ledwick says:

    Apparently they have some means of contact:

  32. Larry Ledwick says:

    Trump and racism

  33. Larry Ledwick says:

  34. H.R. says:

    @Larry – Stone Henge – 😆😆🤣🤣

    Makes you wonder if the pyramids need shifting a couple of inches, too. If they do it at midnight, how would anyone know?

  35. Larry Ledwick says:

    My contribution to a “Caption this” post on twitter.

  36. Larry Ledwick says:

    Trump trolling HBO

  37. Larry Ledwick says:

    Put this here so it can be found again in the future.

  38. Larry Ledwick says:

    From gab ( things are loading a bit better but still slow on some tasks

  39. Larry Ledwick says:

  40. Larry Ledwick says:

    This is so incredibly meme – able I will just leave it here for future use.

    I am thinking of a caption like – “So Barry about that extra flexibility after the election?”

  41. Larry Ledwick says:

    Or perhaps “The Jock and the whimp – who’s in charge”

  42. Larry Ledwick says:

  43. E.M.Smith says:

    I spent a few hours this morning on Gab Humor and downloaded a few dozens more memes… I think maybe it’s time for another meme posting thread ;-)

  44. E.M.Smith says:

    Per the psych symbolism folks: Putin is symbolically grabbing Obama by the dick and saying Putin is in charge. Sort of a “by the balls” symbolism…

  45. H.R. says:

    For the Putin pulling the tie image, how about:

    “You’re screwing it all up, O-flamer. What the heck do you think I’m paying you for?”

  46. Larry Ledwick says:

    On election shenanigans.

  47. p.g.sharrow says:

    While working for the Clintons, Bob Bectal used to brag he would call up his precinct captains about the vote count and they would ask ” how many do you need”…pg

  48. p.g.sharrow says:

    Small wonder Democratic controlled areas have over 100% voting, often with zero Republican votes recorded. The meme RINO was coined for Democrats regestering as Republican so the could help with this scam by being on the count teams as Repubs…pg

  49. Larry Ledwick says:

  50. Larry Ledwick says:

  51. Larry Ledwick says:

    Meme material – help yourself to the caption of your choice.

  52. H.R. says:

    No caption needed, Larry. As soon as I saw it it I just started chuckling and probably won’t stop until I click to go somewhere else… which I’m in no hurry to do at the moment.

    That codpiece has me back to chortling even more. Trump! Trump! Trump! Mr. “Two Extra and solid Titanium.”

    Nationalism IS Treason to a Communist! Macron has declared his loyalty…pg

  65. Larry Ledwick says:

  66. E.M.Smith says:

    Oh, that’s a big one…

    Or perhaps I ought to say “Oh, that’s a Big O!” (Ref: Inglorious bastards! )

  67. Larry Ledwick says:

  68. Larry Ledwick says:

  69. Larry Ledwick says:

    Perhaps you have seen President Trump’s recent reference to Adam Schiff intentionally typo’s to Schitt

  70. H.R. says:

    Hmm.. gives new meaning to the phrase, “schitty cartoon.”
