Clitnon NAFTA Deal, and COVID-19


COVID-19 Panadamic shows why we must not vote for democratic party. Bill Clinton signed North American Free Trade Agreement January 1, 1994. This bill destroyed America’s manufacturing industry, turn millions of American homeless over night. To put salt on the wound August, 1994 An Act to Control and Prevent Crime aka Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. This means million of American who last good paying job with union benefit, and medical insurance were not allowed to protest in streets. While public was bamboozle by media by talking about Clinton sexual assault. In 2020 USA can not even produce medical mask, or essential medical supplies. Outsouring pillar of American industry is the main reason why COVID-19 pandamic is worst in USA. This Democratic party fault, and blaming Trump only reveal their true hypocrisy.

Chris Hedges Pulitzer Prize winning journalist wrote an excellent book called “Death of the liberal class“.  Key to success is learn from the mistake. We can protest NAFTA deal, and other outsourcing of American industry by not voting for democratic party. We remind every that if democratic hadn’t sign the NAFTA deal we wouldn’t have current ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Trump did failed to Corona virus pandemic, however it was Clinton and the Democratic party that cause global pandemic by outsourcing American jobs, and cripple our health care system.


Tara Reade vs Joe Biden

During #MeToo movement any women who accused a man was allowed to share her story — expect those who were part of democratic party. Scandals related to Clinton, Biden, and Obama have been censored. Media refuses to give same opportunity to Tara Reade. Virtually every single mainstream media “CNN, MSNBC, CBS” has been ignoring the scandal. If the sexual assault is ever mentioned; only Joe Biden is allowed to provide his point of view. Tara Reade who is a victim is never given an opportunity to give her side of the story..

Regardless of how you feel about the scandal. It seems rather odd that democratic party will pick such a flaw leader, Considering the went after Trump , Judge Kavanaugh, and numerous other men. Why shields these him? It seems rather bizarre. Most us with conscientious can not vote for Biden. Trump maybe a bad person. Biden with his sexually deviant  past is lot to be desire.

This idea Vote Blue No Matter Who is flawed. We should vote for those who have represent who interest in the past. Democratic has consistently betrayed the working people in the past. Clinton’s NAFTA deal is the reason why we have shortages of medical supplies. It was democratic party policy of global economy that has worsen COVID-19 Pandemic. Now they are victimizing even the most vulnerable member of our society; sexually abused women. I have never questioned any woman who talk about her sexual assault, and I will give same consideration to Tara Read. We can help her heal by listening to her story, and by not voting for Joe Biden, and Democratic party in 2020 election.


My Linux Journey

corel_linuxI joined Linux club in 1999. It was not the most easiest thing in the world. My computer was very slow, and my dailup modem was so weak that if try downloading 10mb of dos patches it would takes hours, if not days.

After researching I decided to buy Corel Linux. My good old P4 with 1gig hard drive, and 200mb of ram was good enough for this power hungry operating system. Unlike modern Linux Distro in 90s we had to install modules for CD-Rom, Modem (preference was external), video card itself was not good either. Also old linux distros fonts were terrible. Sadly it did not work as well as I had wished. I uninstalled the o/s and went back to using Windows 98SE.

By 2000 I was ready to upgrade to a new computers. I can’t remember what computer I went with but it was fast, and I also switched to DSL so downloading were amazing by this time. Every single part I bought I made sure that it compatible with Linux. New creative sound card, LG burner, ATI video card, even Linux recommended hard drive.  Once everything was good. I was ready to install linux distro on my computer.


My First Distro: Conectiva

I tried multiple distros, and I wasn’t happy with any of them. Finally, I came across Brazilian distro Connectiva. It was an amazing operating system. They invented modern day apt-get install, and simplify lots things for newbie like me. Their instruction for compiling modules for CDRW was as simple as it gets. KDE3 burner worked on the fly. I used the distro for five years until it merged with Mandrake, and the revolting product was called “Mandriva Linux“.  Like most things we parted and never looked back. What was amazing about this distro was my all in one ATI media card (built in TV tuner) worked perfectly, it was amazing.

2nd Distro: Knoppix

Knoppix was made to be run as “Live CD” meaning the entire distro can run from CD Rom, and it worked perfectly. I used this when I added additional computer, and for brief moment I was using it as full on operating system.

3rd Distro: Kubuntu

I downloaded kubuntu, and start using it around 2005, and it became my main O/S. This distro wasn’t all that different from Connectiva. Expect for the fact — they expected “user” to know what they were doing. By 2008 distro included free gui tools for shrinking hard drive, and KDE 3 had fonts export feature — fonts in native Linux distro were horrendous. By 2008 I had switch from desktop to laptop fully, and here I had to dual booth with Window XP & Linux due to college courses.

3rd Distro: Ubuntu

I dunno when but at one point I switch to Ubuntu. It is a love hate relationship. Unlike older distro, Ubuntu has habit of change thing on the back-end. Instead of using /mnt to mount drive, /media is used. Amazon app is installed, and few other weird stuff that make you wonder if this distro heading where Microsoft is now totally spyware O/S.

There you have it my journey to Linux. Unlike Linux guru I am not an expert, just an average user with family and kids. I love free software, and willing to learn to preserve my freedom rather then handed over to evil Microsoft.


What’s It’s All About

I always wanted my own website where I can posts my own idea, thoughts about several issues. It took awhile for me to come with this. For example I wanna talk about politics, I also wanna write review about new hardware, and software. Sometime I just wanna share my recipe, and put my own input on someone else recipe after cooking.

Type of things I am thinking about:

      • Ubuntu Desktop Setup Configuration
      • Window Desktop Setup Configuration
      • Hardware & Software
      • Cooking Recipes
      • Politics
      • Hobbies like Astronomy
      • Maybe few other things 🙂
