Why is Windows 10 such a shitty computer operating system?
I own a Net Book, which is not the same as a Desk Top or Laptop Computer.
Net Books have very limited space on the hard Disk Drive (C): 30 Gigabytes.
To get around that problem I have a solid state Removable Drive (D) attached to my Net Book.
I have used 10 Gigabytes on Drive D. It has 287 Gigabytes available for use.
Every 5 or 10 minutes DUMB WINDOWS 10 sends me a message telling me I do not have enough space on Drive C. It wants an additional 8 Gigabytes. It only has 2 Gigabytes left.
MY QUESTION: Why is Windows 10 not able to figure out that I have 287 Gigabytes which are available on my Drive D?
I look forward to answers.
It must be veto proof, or the Hater In Chief in the White House will try to kill it with his veto power.

PETITION TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES REQUESTING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP BE CENSURED
My congratulations and thanks to Kathleen Wunderly for her excellent article, party retold below.
Sagunto, a port city in eastern Spain on the Mediterranean Sea, is in the province of Valencia. Its roots lie very deeply in history, back when it was Saguntum, a peaceful Ibero-Roman city until targeted by Carthaginians led by Hannibal, in 214, B.C.
Saguntum commercial prosperity attracted Hannibal's notice (along with the fact that Saguntum was on the side of Rome, against Carthage), and he laid siege for eight months). The blockade reduced the desperate inhabitants to eating tree bark and leather, and the city proposed an honorable surrender, which Hannibal rejected.
The Saguntines then gathered all their possessions --- precious stones, sacred religious items, gold, clothing and so on --- into an inmense pile in the central plaza and set fire to it. Some chose to throw themselves into the fire, and others left the city to futilely attack the Cathaginians camp "morir matando": to die killing.
Watching the lost cause from the city walls, many of the Saguntine women killed their children and themselves. Any survivors were slaughtered by the Carthaginians when they entered the ruins of Saguntum. A treaty had limited Hannibal's influence in Spain, and his attack on Saguntum broke this treaty, marking the start of the Second Punic War, which Rome won in 214 B.C.

Declaración del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de Cuba sobre el reconocimiento por Estados Unidos de la ciudad de Jerusalén como capital de Israel
6 de diciembre de 2017 17:12:52
El Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de la República de Cuba expresa su más profunda preocupación y rechazo por la declaración unilateral por parte del Presidente de los Estados Unidos de la ciudad de Jerusalén como capital de Israel, lo que constituye una grave y flagrante violación de la Carta de la ONU, del Derecho Internacional y de las resoluciones pertinentes de las Naciones Unidas.
Esta intención del Gobierno de los Estados Unidos de modificar el estatuto histórico de Jerusalén vulnera los intereses legítimos del pueblo palestino y de las naciones árabes e islámicas, provocará graves consecuencias para la estabilidad y la seguridad en el Medio Oriente, aumentará aún más las tensiones en esta región e impedirá cualquier esfuerzo encaminado a reanudar las conversaciones de paz entre israelíes y palestinos.
Cuba llama al Consejo de Seguridad a cumplir la responsabilidad que le otorga la Carta de la ONU en el mantenimiento de la paz y la seguridad internacionales, a adoptar las decisiones necesarias y a exigir a Israel el fin inmediato de la ocupación de los territorios palestinos y de las políticas agresivas y prácticas colonizadoras, así como el cumplimiento de las resoluciones aprobadas por ese órgano sobre la situación en el Medio Oriente, incluida la cuestión Palestina.
El Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores ratifica que Cuba continuará apoyando una solución amplia, justa y duradera para el conflicto palestino-israelí, sobre la base de una solución de dos Estados, que permita a los palestinos el derecho a la libre determinación y a disponer de un Estado independiente y soberano, con su capital en Jerusalén Oriental y las fronteras previas a 1967.

In the Middle East, the flags of the USA and Israel are being burned on the streets.
Donald Trump keeps on making enemies. He will never accomplish much in his four years in the White House.
If he does move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem he will be encouraging the winds of war in the middle East.
He has chosen bad company, the Israeli Zionists, who continue stealing Palestinian lands with impunity.
Future historians will not treat Donald Trump very well. He is a mediocre person.

The Yankee imperialists will have to think twice before doing anything, as NPR reports that the new DPRK missile (Hwasong-15) is a 'monster'
GEOFF BRUMFIEL - NPR
The intercontinental ballistic missile that North Korea launched on Wednesday appears to be significantly larger and more powerful than previous versions, according to independent analysts.
"It's a monster," says Vipin Narang, an associate professor at MIT who tracks the North's nuclear capabilities. The missile is so much larger than previous versions that Narang suspects it could carry a powerful thermonuclear weapon, regardless of whether the North has managed to make a compact, missile-friendly version.
"They wouldn't have to miniaturize much," Narang says.

For the past 40 years, the financial and political elite of this country have rigged the tax code to redistribute wealth and income to some of the richest and most powerful people in this country. The result: we are moving rapidly toward an oligarchic form of society in which the top 1 percent is doing phenomenally well, the middle class continues to decline and 40 million Americans are living in poverty.
And it will probably not surprise you to learn that just as our tax code benefits the wealthiest people in this country, it also benefits some of the largest and most profitable corporations in the world with a myriad of tax breaks, deductions, credits and other loopholes. As a result, one out of five large profitable corporations today pays nothing in federal taxes.
The current Republican “tax cut” bill, paid for by the Koch brothers and other billionaire campaign contributors, continues the push to make the rich richer at the expense of everyone else. It would raise taxes on middle class families making $75,000 a year or less and would throw 13 million Americans off of health insurance. And it would do all of these things to provide permanent tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and profitable corporations that ship American jobs to China while moving their American profits to the Cayman Islands.
But let's be clear. This legislation goes well beyond taxes. Its ultimate goal is to radically transform American society and the role that government plays in the lives of the working families of our country. This legislation will increase the deficit by at least $1.5 trillion over ten years. Mark my words. If passed, the Republicans will then rediscover the "deficit crisis," and push aggressively for massive cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education – higher education in particular – nutrition, affordable housing and more. They will seek to undo every major piece of legislation passed in the last 80 years designed to help working families, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor.
This is the Republican plan. Huge tax breaks for the rich and powerful. Massive cuts to life and death programs for the middle class and working families of our country.
This is not moral. This is not what the American people want. This is not what our country and our pledge for "liberty and justice for all" is supposed to be about.
That is why I am going on the road this week to talk directly to working people in Kentucky, Ohio, and Pennsylvania about this disastrous piece of legislation. If we stand together – black, white, Latino, Asian American, Native American, male and female, young and old, gay and straight – we can defeat this horrific bill. But I need you to make your voice heard as well. We need to stand together. (Our Revolution)
The DPRK has launched a new missile, the latest report states. The Koreans north of the 38th parallel have a right to defend their nation against the predatory acts of the USA and its gendarmes in South Korea and Japan.
This time, the territory of the USA will not avoid the destruction that is coming to them.
I hope that Mr. Corn Hair in the White House will desist in his predatory endeavors.
Neo-Liberalism is a failed system. It only works for capitalist millionaires.

Cuba's future President Miguel Diaz-Canel sends clear mesage to Donald Trump: "Our People Do Not Bow Down"
HAVANA, Cuba (AP) — The man widely seen as Cuba's next president delivered a defiant rejection of demands for change in the island's single-party system as he participated Sunday in the first in a series of elections expected to end with his taking over from Raul Castro next year.
First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel said the voting will deliver a message to the world. “What message? Unity. Conviction. A message that our people don't bow down, not to a hurricane and even less to external pressure and some people's desire to see our system change,” the normally laconic Diaz-Canel said in an unusually lengthy series of statements to members of the foreign and State-run press.
Diaz-Canel's message appeared to refer mostly to the Donald Trump Administration, which has tightened restrictions on US travel to Cuba and stopped issuing visas to Cubans at the US Embassy in Havana. (Jamaica Observer)

HAVANA, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- Cuba marked on Saturday the first anniversary of the death of revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, with massive political and cultural events, as part of the weeklong commemoration across the Caribbean island country he had led for 48 years.
At the University of Havana where Fidel Castro "became revolutionary," according to his own words, thousands of people attended a public gathering chaired by the First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel and Jose Machado, second secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba.
The speakers and attendees recalled with songs and poems the exemplary life and work of the man who defied dangerously in his youth the dictatorship of former strongman Fulgencio Batista and later the enmity of 10 U.S. administrations.
"Where is Fidel?" yelled the speakers, before being replied "Here!" by the crowd carrying portraits of Fidel and the legendary Argentine-Cuban commander Ernesto "Che" Guevara, among other historic revolutionary fighters and the national flag.
The songs and speeches were accompanied by videos and photos on big screens showing relevant moments of Castro's life linked to the history of the socialist revolution he initiated and led for almost half a century.
"I am Fidel," the national slogan that came up naturally among Cubans after his death, was frequently repeated in chorus by the attendees during the gala at the university. "I came to pay my tribute to the unforgettable leader who guided us to achieve independence and sovereignty. I am too young and I did not live the previous decades when he kept active in the country, but I have learned from my parents a lot about his life," Dalila Nunez, a 19-year-old student at the Sports University, told Xinhua.
Since the victory of the Revolution and throughout the past five decades, Fidel promoted and led the struggle for the consolidation of the revolutionary process in the Caribbean nation and its progress toward building a socialist society with its own characteristics.
"Fidel marked my life and the lives of millions of Cubans," said Roberto Fernandez, a retiree from the armed forces. "It is impossible to narrate the history of Cuba and the world in the second half of the 20th century without mentioning him. Undoubtedly, he was one of the most significant figures in the last century, with his influences going far beyond Cuba," Fernandez added.
A series of political and cultural events in honor of the first anniversary of Castro's death have been held since the beginning of this week in the country's main cities. Castro's son Alex, a well-known photographer, held a photo exhibition, showing photos of his father's life. The commemoration will continue until Saturday, with numerous political events and vigils at the Antonio Maceo Revolution Square in the eastern Santiago de Cuba city.
The next morning, there will be a popular pilgrimage from that place to the Santa Ifigenia cemetery to pay tribute to Castro on the same day his ashes were placed in that necropolis. Castro led a two-year guerrilla war before ousting Batista in January 1959. Later as First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba and president of the nation, he worked to provide free education and health to the people and develop sports, culture and science.
Castro died on Nov. 25, 2016. He requested before his death that after his decease neither public place will bear his name, nor sculptures will be erected in his honor. Many foreign leaders have visited his tomb in the Santa Ifigenia cemetery when travelling to the Caribbean island.
Thousands of Cubans and Latin Americans have also paid homage to the revolutionary leader, who died in peace at 90, after surviving over 600 murder attempts, an invasion and a nuclear crisis.

The mojito was born on the island of Cuba and is one of the nation's oldest cocktails. The drink has a disputed history. Some say the drink was developed in the 1500's when the famed explorer Sir Francis Drake landed in the city of Havana, in order to sack the city of its gold. While the invasion was unsuccessful, an associate of Sir Francis Drake, named Richard Drake, created an early version of the mojito called " El Draque " out of aguardiente ( a crude form of rum,) sugar, lime, and mint. Others say the drink was invented by African slaves working in the Cuban sugar cane fields. The name " mojito " stems from the African word of "mojo" which means to place a little spell. In the mid-1800's the creation of the Bacardi company bolstered the popularity of the mojito. The mojito rose to prominence to the international world when renowned writer Ernest Hemingway became a fan of the beverage after visiting a local Cuban bar called the "La Bodeguita del Medio" and also consumed the drink in Key West, Florida. While we may never know the true origin of the drink, the tasty combination of lime and mint is sure to stick around for years to come.
Fun Fact: The mojito had a resurgence this millennium when in 2002 it played a prominent role in a scene in the James Bond film Die Another Day. In the scene James Bond uses the mojito to seduce Jinx (played by the beautiful Halle Berry.). The link below has the video.

The proposal, put forward by the F.C.C. chairman, Ajit Pai, is a sweeping repeal of rules put in place by the Obama administration. The rules prohibited high-speed internet service providers from blocking or slowing down the delivery of websites, or charging extra fees for the best quality of streaming and other internet services for their subscribers. Those limits are central to the concept called net neutrality. (New York Tines)

JG: Cuba Journal urges its readers and visitors to NOT PURCHASE any Coca Cola products. An injury to one is an injury to all. Workers of the world unite!
What caught my attention right away was the Spanish workers yelling: "Este país ya no aguanta más." (The country will stand it no longer.)
This is what happens when people allow imperialist countries to come into their nation and let them exploit the workers of the commercially invaded country.
Of the five western imperialist powers (USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany and Spain) the land of Cervantes is the most vicious in its brutality and corruption. We saw what happened in Cataluña in October 1 of the current year.
To put it simply, the Coca Cola capitalists from Atlanta, USA, are trying to f*ck the Spanish working class.
I will try to do more research on this issue, and will report in a later post in Cuba Journal.

Music by: Pierre Degeyter - 1888.
Arise ye workers from your slumbers
Arise ye prisoners of want
For reason in revolt now thunders
And at last ends the age of cant.
Away with all your superstitions
Servile masses arise, arise
We’ll change henceforth the old tradition
And spurn the dust to win the prize.
So comrades, come rally
And the last fight let us face
The Internationale unites the human race.
No more deluded by reaction
On tyrants only we’ll make war
The soldiers too will take strike action
They’ll break ranks and fight no more
And if those cannibals keep trying
To sacrifice us to their pride
They soon shall hear the bullets flying
We’ll shoot the generals on our own side.
No saviour from on high delivers
No faith have we in prince or peer
Our own right hand the chains must shiver
Chains of hatred, greed and fear
E’er the thieves will out with their booty
And give to all a happier lot.
Each at the forge must do their duty
And we’ll strike while the iron is hot.
