BUSTED!


Like we didn't know it all along. Seems the folks over at the RNC have been organizing a fear campaign to paint his O ness as a Socialist. (As if that's a bad thing.) Nice folks those republicans. Instead of trying to come up with ideas to make our country better, they are trying to find ways to take back power from the beige man in the people's house.

"National GOP leaders are doing damage control today after a Politico scoop lifted the curtain on the party's plan to tap voters' "fear" in the coming campaign season. The PR problem started when an absent-minded attendee at the Republican National Committee (RNC) confab on February 18 in Boca Grande, Florida, left a 72-page document from its 2010 strategizing session in a hotel room. Today, Politico reporter Ben Smith's expose is making headlines.
The memo tracks the fundraising presentation that RNC Finance Director Rob Bickhart delivered to the RNC's $2,500-a-head annual retreat. The best path to victory in 2010, the document advises, is for Republican candidates to depict themselves as the best hope for resisting the "trending toward socialism" taking shape in a Democrat-dominated Washington.
And the document doesn't shy from making its points graphically. MSNBC showed the images this morning on "Morning Joe":"

[That's the image you are seeing with this post]

Hip Hop Mike sure knows how to disappoint a brother. Just when I was starting to think that there might be hope for him- not to mention trying to talk other Negroes out of calling the "Drop Squad" on his ass- he pulls a stunt like this. Shame!

Oh well, I guess his O ness wasn't being paranoid when he said that the rethugs are trying to scare the A-merry-can people by calling him a Socialist and a Manchurian president. O Man, for every little doubt I had about how nefarious these people truly are; let me be the first to say that I am sorry.

Field,
To quote you: "Just when I was starting to think that there might be hope for him- not to mention trying to talk other Negroes out of calling the "Drop Squad" on his ass- he pulls a stunt like this. Shame!"

After seeing this man jig in blackface (while drinking tea and singing hip hop) for the past year and a half, you're not serious, right?

RiPPa said...

Same shit different year coming from those folks. But Field you know Captain Coontastic aka Michael Steele can't say too much. They've been in his ass for spending up the white folks' money like he just got a tax refund check. You know how those Negroes do.

LOL

Doesn't seem like much of a scandal to me. I guess they'll only use it in red states with Dem Congressman, wouldn't play well in purple or blue. But what about MA, VA, etc... hmmmmm.

O-man was given a bad hand, no doubt, but I don't think he played it very well either. I keep thinking of a college student that was taught that all you need to do to fix problem "Y" is do "X", duh!1!!!1. He's just so reflexive about it. He should have listened more to Rahm and less to Valerie and Axelrod.

Anyway back on topic, the Dem base at this point is fractured and the Rep base is engaged. That's the real problem for Dems, not the Republican strategy.

This is the same old stuff. Just another variation on the Southern strategy. Call any Negro who has upset the old way of life, a communist or sympathizer. Now its socialism and Islamism.

they keep screaming socialist
they will tell you it's bad

Isn't it absolutely amazing that the word "socialist" can be used as an epithet after all the destruction the devout capitalists have unleashed on the world lately?

"the Dem base at this point is fractured and the Rep base is engaged."

Replace "fractured" with "disillusioned" and "engaged" with "completely insane" and I would agree with that statement.

California Girl said...

I first heard the story @ 6AM this morning. Could not post my take on it til late today and I wanted to be one of the early ones on it. I was, at first, incensed. But, as my husband has been saying all along,
the Republican Party trades on emotion and the gullibility of their followers. This is a pretty good illustration of that.

"Instead of trying to come up with ideas to make our country better, they are trying to find ways to take back power from the beige man in the people's house."

To the GOP, finding ways to take power away from Obama IS making our country better.

Compared to other Presidents in the White House, I don't think I've seen a weaker President. The GOP has carried out its plan very well. And the Dems have held true to their well known reputation of shooting themselves in the foot.

But I am sure Obama's color has nothing to do with it, though. I am glad that crook Rangel is gone. Now, if the Dems can just find somebody to fill the vacancy. They are such a sorry group that it's scary.

Jody, "one who is particularly "anti-gay" being busted for a DUI after leaving a gay bar, with a male passenger...."

I think this story will be revised. Californians don't do stuff like this. After all, they passed Prop8 until 2050 didn't they?

"THAT NIGGER'S RUINING OUR WAY OF LIFE!! WE GOTTA TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK BEFORE THE NIGGERS TAKE OVER AND KILL US ALL!!!"

What is it about white people that makes them so afraid of blacks taking over the political power structure? They think we're gonna do what so many African countries have done and declare open season on whites? It must be -- after all, we pretty much have all the reasons in the world to deliver the Big Payback.

And the GOP will constantly remind voters of this, that this "other", this...."socialist Marxist" (code for "GODDAMNED NIGGER") will ruin the U.S. (code for "permanently erase our old racist landscape". And the GOP voters are gullible enough to believe this tripe. And if the GOP manages to sway a great many who are concerned about legitimate issues (or at least makes them stay home), then it's pretty much Sarah Palin Time come 2012.

If anything, this story may be used as an excuse by the networks to (briefly) mention the odious fear-mongering by the Rethugs, but it's hardly news to anyone with half a brain.

So, okay, this "exposé" may open the eyes of a few 20 year olds. But other than that, it's just preaching to the choir for us, and off the radar for the 'baggers.

Tish.

I do love the bad PR.

When the White man come's after a Black man, they have DATA! it may NOT be Legit, but, when they finish smearing you with it, the Majority of the people, will believe every single bit of it!

When any Black man reach's a high status, the Conspiracy begin's, it must be a written document some place that say's (a black man is never to go above.... for if by accident they do, well, these are your instruction, and read them carefully, for they must be passed on and on and on! these are the RULE'S to Tear down a man's Character's, bit by bit by bit!

What else is new? "They" have been using these fear/smear tactics for years. And they will continue to do so. You know why? Because it's successful. Anytime they feel the status quo/their privilege is being threatened they pull out all the stops. Despite the fact tha Obama hasn't done anything, it's just his presence and the deep rooted fear that he might go all Rev. Wright that scares them more than anything. They use code words like "real americans" "socialist/marxist(despite the fact that they don't know the meaning of either)"take back OUR country"

chicago dyke said...

for what are you apologizing, FN?

and no, this isn't exactly "news." nor is it a "new" tactic on the part of the Party of No. obama is so far to the right of any actual socialist politician such are found in SAmerica or Europe it's a sad joke to think that anyone could mistake him for such. but that is the reality of most republican voters right now: they are sad, and i can make many jokes about their ahistorical, ignorant, forgetful "understanding" of political ideology and the recent history of political parties and legislation in this country.

these are old white guys, and dumb young closet cases who, um, service them, coming up with stupid ideas for campaign slogans and memes that will unfortunately be far more effective than they should be with a certain segment of the population. but totally predictable.

the more interesting question: for those of us who can actually define "socialism" correctly, how has obama and the dem party done, in terms of our willingness to stand up and vote for them, this year and in '12? that's much more important. like republican critters, republican voters are never, ever going to vote for obama or any democrat. will democrats show up for dem candidates this year, given the failures of congress to do things like end the wars, provide health care, or meaningful stimulation that creates real job growth?

the right is long practiced at taking legitimate critique of dem policy, esp weak policy, and twisting it with their own rhetoric. this is nothing more than the same. "you don't have a job? you don't have good health care/your rates are rising? you're worried about the future? all that is because obama is a _______" and today's word is "socialist," where 60 years ago it would've been "negro" or "communist." and equally unrelated to reality.

There is a written document that everyone carries. It is internally written on their hearts so that it is an automatic reaction, whether Dem, Repub, or Independent. Those who have worked to destroy that internal document are very few. For many, it is a work in progress.

The GOP is always afraid of losing their way of life to some used-to-be slave. They have every right to be concerned about a black man in charge. Racism breeds hatred.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." When you have done to others what you would hate done to you, you have GOT to be concerned.

So don't act like you don't know why Whites are so afraid and reluctant to share power with you, you white haters.

Filled Negro:

Can I tell you how I have you patterned?

I see that the Filled Negro blog makes a single post, normally at night. This one post puts out sufficient "Self-Chum" for the crowd of "Filled Negroes and Negretts" to feed upon until the next evening's feeding time.

If you consider the comment count - there is no question about it that certain subjects reach beyond the 120 message count. IF the subject is RACISM or a REPUBLICAN expose' THE COUNT can go well past 200 - spilling over to a second page of comments.


Filled Negro - before I even went to your propaganda blog I made a list of what Filled Negro COULD talk about and what he is LIKELY to talk about.

Here is the mental list:

* The RNC Presentation (the highest likelihood)

* Charlie Rangel's decision to yield his chairmanship (Nah. No advantage to Filled Negro - he is a Democrat)

* The people who are RESIGNING around NY Governor Paterson due to the "Domestic Violence" scandal. (Nah again. Filled Negro plays obfuscation. While his own house is on fire he prefers to look across the street at the Republican house and notice the sausage that is smoking up the house)


YOU WIN AGAIN FILLED NEGRO.

Hey FROG:

Why do you look past the LOCAL DEMOCRATS and focus on the National Republicans? (DESPITE us being in the 4th straight DEMOCRATIC CONTROL OVER BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS?)

Have you ever wrote a POEM about how for more than 30 YEARS the Democrats have controlled:

* Chicago
* Philadelphia
* Baltimore
* Atlanta
* St Louis
* Memphis
* Newark
* Boston
* Milwaukee
* LA
* Cleveland
* Buffalo
* Detroit?


With a lock on the legislative arm (and in some cases an occasional Republican mayor) WHY DO YOU LOOK PAST THIS wide, horizontal base of POWER that impacts more people more acutely?

Do you (and Filled Negro) believe that if YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT THIS TRUTH that it will magically go away?

OR do you focus as such because by focusing on the National Republicans it has more masturbatory force with you?

Hathor - I notice that you are stuck on this "Southern Strategy" thing. I say that it was a FAILURE. Do you realize, for example that despite this strategy being associated with Nixon - Georgia is just now on the second term of its FIRST REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR since RECONSTRUCTION?

The GA legislature only flipped from Democrat to GOP about 8 years ago as well.

WHY DON'T YOU TALK ABOUT THE DEMOCRATS "URBAN STRATEGY"?
They draw on the same expectation of IGNORANT and BIGOTED voters as did the "Southern Strategy".

The painful truth is that the URBAN STRATEGY has been more harmful to BLACK PEOPLE than you could ever prove that the Southern Strategy has harmed us. It was used to elected Republicans by stoking racial nationalism. The Urban Strategy was used to get Blacks to believe that we can VOTE OUR WAY into receiving SOCIAL JUSTICE ENTITLEMENTS.

The damage came from the failure to create a CULTURE OF GROWTH OF ORGANIC COMPETENCY.

WHAT SHOULD I be calling those people who GAINED POWER by their promises of PROGRESSION only to see the condition PROGRESSIVELY ERODE?

Should I still be calling them "School Board Chief" or "Mr Mayor"?

This is what happens when your focus is placed more on the EXTERNAL CHASE against your enemies rather than on HANDLING YOUR BUSINESS within.

Hey there Constructive Feed...Yes sir we Georgains have been blessed to have good ol boy Sonny Perdue as our Gubner. First off, Chicken Man hasn't done shizznit for the state for the past 7 years. He refused Federal money to help the state, now everyone and I mean everyone working for the state is taking a pay cut. Except the guys over in the state legislature. During the drought of 2008 he mysteriously leaves the state to discuss building business in Asia. Unfortunately it wasn't for the state, it was for his own personal endeavors. Then he trots back, goes in the state capitol and puts on a show to PRAY for rain. Well the Lord listen to ol Chicken Man and answered his prayers a year later. Now it won't stop raining, snowing, and hailing. It's like we live in Seatle now. Our great Gubner also asked already grossly underpaid teachers to take a 3 day furlough, while they continue to teach peoples undisciplined/unruly kids. Oh and lets not forget about the Gubner taking money from the excess Lottery money to pay for scholarships which was honorable, but it violates the states constitution. I don't doubt the Chicken Man is a good guy, but he did nothing for the state. Made himself rich. Did nothing to keep the state from falling into the perils of a recesion. The guy was elected becuase the great people of Georgia wanted a guy who supported the confederate flag.

It we take the values of the black community, we will all be singing songs about Hos and bitches and running around with our pants to our knees. That's the fear, not what you proclaim. Let's face it the black community does a poor job at representing themselves (thugz etc.). That is what whites don't want. Do you blame them?

No, seriously, I'm damn near dying of laughter here. The above has got to be the funniest thing I've read in days.

But of course, as a white person (or a self-hating black), you believe all the above stereotypes hook, line and sinker. You really do believe that the entire U.S. will start "singing songs about Hos and bitches and running around with our pants to our knees". You actually believe that the entire black community operates this way. Such thinking is disingenuous and frankly, rather stupid.

"Let's face it the black community does a poor job at representing themselves (thugz etc.)."

Wrong answer. The media does the black community a disservice by elevating the worst among us (the "thugz") as our so-called representative face. How effective that's been? Well, you're buying it, hook, line and sinker.

BTW, I've seen some of the values in a few lower-class white communities. And trust me, no one in their right mind would adopt those, black or white. But the thing is, those values are not "representative of the white community as a whole". In other words, WHITE TRASH /= (does not equal) WHITE AMERICA.

On the other hand, BLACK THUGS = BLACK AMERICA. Now why is that? How come a small section of the black community has to be representative of the whole community? We don't have the same privilege as whites to segregate our idiots to keep our image sparkling clean? What's up with that?

thanks!
amen!

see the same hard truths about local black dems in atl who are WORSE than republicans here:

http://www.blackagendareport.com/?q=print/content/looking-beyond-black-mecca-and-failure-black-misleadership-class


"While the triumph of black economic and political power was celebrated in Atlanta, Georgia's incarceration rate shot up 141% between 1982 and 2007. Georgia's rate of adult incarceration is now 4th in the nation, behind the District of Columbia, Louisiana and Mississippi. When those in prisons and jails are combined with the numbers on parole, probation, and all forms of court and correctional supervision, Georgia leads the nation with one in fifteen [1] of its adult citizens under lock, key, or official surveillance. It goes without saying that a disproportionate number of these are black. When such vast numbers suffer the punishing economic and social sanctions meted out to ex-felons, including job discrimination, denial of educational grants and loans, multiple hurdles that block the return of their franchise, the inability even to rent apartments in many neighborhoods in their own names, it's no exaggeration to say that black mass incarceration is locking a class of lower-income blacks into poverty for a generation to come.

The African American leadership class that gave us Black Mecca has no answers to these multiple crises. Their memories are too short and selective to recall that the last time a federal government program lifted millions of Americans out of poverty at a stroke was the 1960s adoption of Medicare. Our black political elite are not just unable to articulate even the foggiest vision of how urban neighborhoods can be developed for the people who currently live in them, or how jobs can be created, how public education can work, or poverty alleviated, they shrink even from public discussion of such matters because these are dreams they gave up long ago. Our black business and political leaders won't discuss black mass incarceration as the pervasive and pernicious social policy it is. Instead they join with the white elite who depict it as the outcome of individual choices, or of differential educational outcomes arising from a “school to prison pipelinei [2]” or similar nonsense."

This is one of the primary reasons for the suffering of so many Blacks...they have been abandoned by their own kind.

And yet we judge and call them 'idiots' without values, who give other Blacks who have 'made it' a bad name.

Many of the so-called negroes who have "made it" have forgotten where they came from- unlike the Jews who have never forgotton their roots.

These condescending holier than thou Negroes are in reality the true idiots who have forgotton the help THEY received from the sacrifice of so many who went before them.

They still have yet to 'give' back what they 'received' in order to lift others up! Instead, they mouth words, and point fingers at conservatives, the GOP, racists, Whites, etc. instead of getting down in the trenches and doing the work that could save millions-and help end the wicked incarceration of so many of our black men.

Thanks for the info, AB.

Not The "Smart Anon":

Let's pretend for a second that the "Negroes Who Made It" DID try to reach back to the "inferior Negroes" who you maintain can't help themselves DESPITE their present freedom.

Can you articulate what RACIAL OBLIGATION these "Least of these Negroes" have in accepting the advice and council given to them by these "reaching back Negroes"?

You seem pretty clear on what you expect from one set of Blacks. I am not sure that you would be able to articulate what you expect from these others. In fact it seems that you believe that they are too damaged to accept any particular burden.

One man's CONDESCENION is another man's STANDARDS.
It seems to me that as long as these "Least Of these" Negroes VOTE in a manner that you find fitting they are "all good" in your world.

Off topic...Can you or anyone tell me what do I do when someone has hacked my blog? My blog is redirecting folks to another site. First it was http://dplayer.net/html, and now it is http://sendptp.com/ramk2.html. These hackers get on my last nerve. They just won't leave an old woman voicing her opinion alone. Smh!

If anyone goes to my blog they are automatically being redirected to another site.

You think they got upset because I told everyone we might have a food shortage in the near future? granny --->scratching her head and giving major eye rollage at the hackers.

Out of one side of his mouth CF yaps that blacks shouldn't look to politicians to save them.

Then out of the other side he's mad because blacks don't vote Republican.

At least Michael Steele, Armstrong Williams, Sowell and the rest of the rightwing Rent-A-Negro brigade get paid for their cooning.

What does CF get?

Besides the pure joy of serving massa.

Alicia Banks -

The state of incarceration is merely proof of the failed CULTURAL POLICY ENACTMENTS that took place far earlier in the lives of these Black males.

The truth is that any inspection made by these so called Black leaders would have to start off with a SELF-INDICTMENT.

Since the Black community is not about to hold ITSELF accountable - don't look for an open and honest discussion.

[quote] Instead they join with the white elite who depict it as the outcome of individual choices, or of differential educational outcomes[/quote]

In as much as their goal is a REDISTRIBUTIVE ONE - why is this any surprise to you?

They TOOK POWER for the sake of A POWER GRAB. Why be surprised with a group who's main interest is this stated work on BEHALF OF Black people that involves them focused on getting Blacks to VOTE more than working WITH Black folks to be the primary vehicle for their own transformation.

IS IT POSSIBLE that this "prison to school" piepline ran through:

* The swamps called "Lack of PURPOSE"?
* Was bridged over the river of "Work to Build Up The Progressive Democratic Powerbase" river

* was tunned through the mountain called "Give Us More Power and be PROUD that you are represented by a Black yet don't ask any questions about the outcomes"?

our two party system
leaves one with little choice
so I rail against the evil
with my frail poetic voice

the sun that rises in the east
the ebb and flow of tides
me and field and you cf
we each have chosen sides

let us talk predictable
and to whom this word applies
cf you are just as predictable
a fact you can't disguise

if field says the sky is blue
you would say no it's azure
and if he said the sun is round
you'd say we can't be sure

that's the beauty of these posts
they help coalesce our view
funny thing every now and then
you say something that is true

"I am ONLY asking MY PEOPLE to push the "Democrats Who Are Black" OUTSIDE of our protected space out to the periphery."

What the hell does this mean?

How do you "push them out" if not by voting for Republicans?

Who is "protecting" them?

Are the hardcore RED districts "protecting" the Republicans who are white???

Granny,

Contact your ISP maybe they can recommend a solution. Your browser may have been high jacked. Now-a-days you need three or four types of anti-virus and anti-spyware; not all update with the same cures. Run a scan at least every other day which each of them.

I don't know how you came to such a conclusion from what I wrote. But what do I know? I am the not the NOT "smart anon" who has failed to meet your standards...as you so graciously put it: "One man's CONDESCENSION is another STANDARDS." CF, I will never reach the bar of your STANDARDS for reasoning and talking because I just don't have your level of creative genius.

Nevertheless, let me try to articulate as a "NOT smart anon"-- which is the name given to me by those Negroes who have "made it":

I am for better human management and accountability in the black community. Over the years, nothing has changed much. It has been due to political corruption by Black liberal Democratic Progressives who continue to break promises and rip off the tax payers in their community. Such callousness, heartlessness, and apathy toward poor black people is shameful and these negroes need to be held accountable.

However, I recognize that some people in the community would prefer to leave those same corrupt black politicians in their jobs to continue to break the law and rip us off. In fact, there are a few on this blog who would rather see Rangel remain in his job even though he has probably been ripping them, their families, and community for at least a decade.

Therein lies my inability to articulate to you inexplicable BLACK MASOCHISM. NOT every person in the bc is like that, though. Many just don't know.

Again, what the bc needs is better human mgmt., better human resources, and compassionate and honest leaders who want to give back to the bc and world what was given to them.

What better group of people to do that than those who have "made it?"

"Our black political elite are not just unable to articulate even the foggiest vision of how urban neighborhoods can be developed for the people who currently live in them....instead they join with the white elite who depict it as the outcome of individual choices, or of differential educational outcomes arising from a “school to prison pipelinei [2]” or similar nonsense."

The black political elite are now only concerned about maintaining their image and wealth. They've "made it", so to speak, and now they are working hard on preserving their new-found status. And all that tripe about helping their fellow brothers out? "Dem niggas didn't help me when I was comin' up, so fuck em".

Yeah, they "forgot where they came from". In other words, they forgot that they, as a people, were suppose to stick together and lift one another out of the soup. Nope, at first opportunity, they leave everyone behind and head off into the hills. Or onto white mens' coattails, until those very same men remind them who they are and what they'll never be, and slap them back down into the soup.

Taliknig about black political elite, how about Detroit, America's most progressive city. A liberal utopia, run exclusively for over 40 years by liberal Democrats whose priority in government is the achievement of "social justice" defined in progressive terms: high taxation, redistributionist social policy, and the institutionalization of racial grievances.

How's that working out? Well, in addition to driving so many people out of the city that large parts of it are returning to wilderness, and getting the remaining souls so dependent on welfare that they all but riot while waiting in line for promised handouts, their horrific public schools only graduate between 25 and 30% of high school students.

So, how could schools be failing in such an enlightened, progressive city? Some emails from Detroit School Board President Otis Mathis may shed some light on why the schools in Detroit are oh so bad.


"Do DPS control the Foundation or outside group? If an outside group control the foundation, then what is DPS Board row with selection of is director? Our we mixing DPS and None DPS row's, and who is the watch dog?"

I don't know, Otis. Do it?


"If you saw Sunday's Free Press that shown Robert Bobb the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools, move Mark Twain to Boynton which have three times the number seats then students and was one of the reason's he gave for closing school to many empty seats."

I could make fun of this, but this YouTube clip better captures the kind of the intellectual firepower of Detroit City Government and the Detroit School Board (although not the rabid racism).

Mack Lyons said...

Granny, I think we have a problem.

Your blog just redirected me to no fewer than 5 different sites before settling on something having to do with Yellowbook.com. Someone's gotten all up in your coding.

"You think they got upset because I told everyone we might have a food shortage in the near future? granny --->scratching her head and giving major eye rollage at the hackers."

Nah. For these fools, it's all about the money. Every hit or click is $$$ in the hackers' account.

Having someone look through the various code snippets in your blog. I just opened a source view in my Chrome browser -- it basically lets you see all the HTML bits that make up that particular page. I'm gonna check it for any weird mess. If I were you, I'd check comments, posts, anything that seems out of place that could leave behind something nasty.

And I'd get a real domain name, something like Grannystandingfortruth.net or something.

Mack Lyons said...

"BTW, Hathor, nah, I don't think it is my browser because I don't have that problem with any other sites."

It's not a PC problem, it's a website/server issue. Gotta look through all of that code. Did you recently add any counters or ads or other widgets lately?

I saw this on CNN last night. "Hip Hop Mike" is such a figure-head-everyready-fall-guy that he may be a robot. Ed Rollins was saying Mike should have caught this.

And on CNN, Rollins kept trying to downplay this by saying to Carville that Dems do this too. Uh, maybe, but they've got the good sense, we hope, not to make it a PowerPoint presentation at a meeting that includes bloggers.

I guess Republicans think bloggers are ruining their game, being present and not always identified or is that they're convinced by the presence of the Steeles of this world that there's nothing wrong with what they say and do.

Mack Lyons said...

Whoa...Have you been talking to CF?

Nope. I should have said "most, but not all". It's manly the older folk who've found the gravy train and wanna ride it all night long without doing the jobs they've signed up to do in the first place.

And no, you'll never hear the phrase "street pirate" out of my mouth. It's something that Rush Limbaugh or some other fat, white, rich prick would say.

Why bother to make fun of it when he is doing it better than anyone else could? It is disgusting. He is disgusting. And I am sick of those useless liberal democrats with IQs of morons teaching our kids. It's time to take those jobs away from them.

There are plenty of good teachers and administrators 'out of jobs' who could do a much better job than those yo-yos.

Yeah, i'd like to know too cause i think Granny just infected my computer. i swear, those folks out in the bay area ain't nothin but trouble.:D))

i hope you will be able to get it fixed. or do like i do...whenever my computer gets infected, i just throw it away and buy another one. btw, the new ipad will be out in a few weeks.

anon 10:57,
Anyone can look at the code if they can get to the website. Right click on the navigation bar.


Blogger is on Google's servers. Not to say they aren't vulnerable. I think whatever has happen has come though Granny's ISP through her PC, perhaps when she is editing or posting.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Thanks Mack, Anonymous, Hathor, and Field. Sorry it took me so long to respond but it is cold out this way and I had to go warm back up.

I might have to close my blog down for a few days and start another one if I can't get rid of the hacker codes.

I am glad that someone was "stupid, careless or senile" so we get a good look behind the curtain.

Anonymous said...

Granny, I hope you read his. It's not html code or Dns. That's silly since I can get to it. If you've already done what Hathor suggested and it's not loading then take a look at you HOSTS file. If it's Windows XP it should be in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

64 bit has something like winpop32 under windows

linux would be \drivers\etc

Using Linux makes sense today, it can dualboot with Win and really no downside with the big hard drives today...

Here's what to replace the existing hosts file with if you see your blog, or any blog really, there. It's a text file with no extension so use a file editor. Anyway here's the very COOL version of the hosts file.
