Donald and Hillary Go Into A Bakery on the Campaign Trail.
As soon as they enter the bakery, Hillary steals three pastries and puts them in her pocket. She says to Donald, "See how clever I am? The owner didn't see anything and I don't even need to lie! I will definitely win the election.
The Donald says to Hillary, "That's the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life, trickery and deceit. I am going to show you an honest way to get the same result." Donald goes to the owner of the bakery and says, "Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick." Intrigued, the owner accepts and gives him a pastry. Trump swallows it and asks for another one. The owner gives him another one. Then Donald asks for a third pastry and eats that, too.
The owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, "What did you do with the pastries?"
Trump replies, "Look in Hillary's pocket."

On closer inspection, you'll see that as Aldous Huxley predicted, we will learn to "love our slavery".
After looking at photos of Hitler in front of the Eiffel Tower and claiming it as his own during my father's lifetime, I see that an alternate reality could instantly rape freedom from us right before our eyes.
I think it was well said in this little selection of prose as to how Germany fell to totalitarianism in a handful of years...
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.
Freedom isn't free.

It's easy to remove the ads on your Amazon Kindle Fire HD, simply log in to your Amazon account and click on the place in the top right hand corner of your account page where it says, "Hello (your name) Your Account". It's got a drop down arrow. Select: "Manage Your Kindle".
Then, in the left column of Category links, click: "Manage Your Kindle" under the Header: Your Kindle Devices.
Look for "Special Offers" Header. Click "edit" where it says, "Subscribed".
A pop up window will explain their advertising subsidy program where they have reduced the cost of your unit by $15 by adding ads to the screensaver and other places.
At point of sale, they also offer the option to pay $15 more for your Kindle Fire without ads in the first place. If you opted for the lesser price, you can still opt-out in your Amazon account if you pay the $15 + tax even after you purchased it.
Here's what the pop-up window looks like:

Also, in order to save money, they stopped shipping the units with a charger. They now include a usb cable that you can attach to your computer to recharge it, but the charger you can buy as an option is much faster. They sell it seperately for $19.95, but I saw an option to purchase it when you're buying your Kindle for a discounted price of $9.95. That's a good way to go. I simply used my AC power charger from my previous Kindle Fire. They used to include it in their older version.
With other headers on this page, you can deregister your Kindle and give it to someone else. You should also go to the actual Kindle device and reset your device to Factory Settings. The new user will be able to register like it's never been used before.
You can also change your Send-To-Kindle email address, and change the name of your Kindle. For example, you could say: Joe's Kindle.
I find that with the new Kindle Fire HD, it's got highly desirable advantages like bluetooth, a far superior built in speaker system that is awesome. They now have dual drivers on each of their stereo speakers. With their new design, the sound comes through loud and clear even if you have your fingers over the speakers due to their improved wrap around design. Their new speakers are many times better when watching a Prime movie or Netflix movie. The older design just didn't cut it.
The HD model has higher resolution and is much snappier due to a faster dual core processor and downloads are much quicker too utilizing their dual wifi wireless connection. You'll find you can be much futher from your wifi router and still go to pages much faster and more reliable.
I'm having trouble watching YouTube videos, even when I go to the YouTube mobile section. They should fix that in their next update.
I love my new Kindle Fire HD 7". It's a big step forward.
