Gordo went to his friend's house unannounced, and he
wanted to spend the night. His friend was sorry that
he could not offer him a whole room, so he said, "You
can sleep on the floor in the living room, or you can
sleep in the room with Baby."
Gordo said that he would prefer the floor.
The next morning he went to the bathroom, and there he
met a gorgeous young blonde. "Hi," he said, "who are you?"
"I'm Baby, and who are you?"
"I'm stupid," he said.

Feds Charge Illinois Man For
Rioting and looting In Minnesota
An Illinois man who traveled to Minnesota for some rioting
and looting--some of which he broadcast on Facebook Live-
has been charged in a federal criminal complaint for his
involvement in the Minneapolis mayhem.
Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, is facing felony counts for
possession of explosive devices and traveling across state
lines to engage in the violent activities that have
engulfed the Minnesota city in the wake of George Floyd’s
death in police custody.
In a May 28 Facebook post, Rupert announced an impending
trip from his home in Galesburg, a city 45 miles from
Peoria, to Minnesota. “I 'm going to Minneapolis tomorrow
who coming only goons I 'm renting hotel rooms,” wrote
Rupert, according to an affidavit sworn by FBI Agent F.M.
In subsequent Facebook videos--which were posted after
Rupert arrived in Minneapolis--he “passes out explosives
he indicates he possessed, encourages others to throw his
explosives at law enforcement officers, actively damages
property, appears to light a building on fire, and loots
businesses in Minneapolis,” Stephens charged.
The affidavit states that Rupert, after noting the
presence of SWAT trucks, declared, “I 've got some bombs
some of you all want to throw them back…bomb them back.”
Later Friday night, Rupert allegedly used a pry tool to
break into a boarded-up liquor store, looted an Office
Depot, and reported setting a fire at a Sprint store.
On Sunday, Rupert (seen above and at right) had relocated
to Chicago, where he was heard on video “saying things to
the effect of ‘let 's start a riot ' and ‘I 'm going to
doing some damage.” In one Facebook post, Rupert declared
that, “we can loot until 2:30.”
Video on his Facebook page shows Rupert entering a looted
downtown Chicago business and announcing that he had
spotted a cash register inside. He is then seen going into
a nearby convenience store that had been broken into and
stealing “what appear to be tobacco products.”
Rupert and several associates were arrested around 2:20 AM
yesterday by Chicago cops for violating the city 's
emergency curfew order. A search of Rupert 's car yielded
“several destructive devices,” a hammer, and a heavy-duty
flashlight. Rupert 's girlfriend told police that his crew
had traveled to Minneapolis “in order to ‘riot, '”
according to Agent Stephens.
One video on Rupert 's Facebook page--which is not
referenced in the FBI affidavit--shows Rupert 's car being
stopped early Saturday morning for speeding. With a
car 's lights flashing, Rupert and his friends--one of
is on parole and not supposed to be outside Illinois--
voice concerns that the officer will seek to search their
vehicle, which contains assorted problematic items,
including marijuana dabs (the possession of which amounted
to a felony, Rupert noted).
But when the patrolman returned to the vehicle, he did not
ask to search the car and only cited Rupert for diving 90
in a 65 mph zone.
As he drove away, Rupert told those watching him on
Facebook Live, “We got lucky as fuck, bro! Real shit.”
Another man in the car can be heard saying that when the
cop shined a flashlight on him, “I know he had to see the
jewelry,” an apparent reference to items stolen in

Re: Anti Malware
Im curious, what would you recommend for anti virus fire
wall protection? MacAfee, Norton or some new fangled
thing? Thanks for all you do,
The best program by far for the last dozen years is
http://webby.com/malwarebytes. I used to have big ads for
it on the Humor Letter, but either most people got it by
now, either via my link, or from elsewhere.
So I dumped most of those ads.
The link still works.
It is amazing how many people are worried, that I would
make $2.49 if they get it via my ads.
Well, the link still works.
It is entirely up to you whether you choose to get the
program. Malwarebytes eliminates a whole stack of
How I initially got it is rather funny.
I had been using McAfee since the mid 80s.
Then I got W7 PRO on a brand new machine.
Well, McAfee did not work on it. So I chatted McAfee
support. The McAfee's Taliban could not get it to work
either. After a few hopurs of wasting time I got rather
hot under my collar and threatened them dire consequences
and bloody mayhem.
So they told me about Malwarebytes. I think I was one of
the first to sign up with Malwarebytes and actually pay.
For a brief time they offered a lifetime subscription. I
paid quickly before they changed their mind.
A month ago I found out that was for just one machine.
Awww. Well, I had received it for two machines for about a
dozen years, so I didn't raise a fuss and paid for the
second machine. It is well worth it.
