So who have you written to so far?

You do much complaining, DK, but I've yet to see you make a public commitment to protesting anything in a real manner other than posting over and over here in SE. Please inform us of your own personal actions over what you see as unconstitutional moves by this or ANY OTHER Administration.

What I heard was that

Karl Rove snuck into the Capiatl building the night before it was voted on and handwrote this part in JUST so he could read Hillary's mail because he's secretly in love with her

That's taken to the "extreme" extreme...........

......if there exists no nexus to or from a suspected or known terrorist source, there would be no interest.

Too bad there wasn't a way to cause some of "these people" to live in one of "those societies" for a year, and then bring them back and see if they have the same opinions.

I wouldn't fault them if they decided to look behind the door at some of the "rabid" bashers in our society. But that ain't gonna happen either.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
