SPAM Isn’t Just Nasty Meat In A Can Anymore

I’ve written lately about having serious problems with online access and with the use of my old iPad. The problems didn’t happen all at once, they slowly crept up the way the loss of civil rights and decency have crept up on the people of the U.S. I decided that planned obsolescence is the reason […]
