Discussions Among Readers
But, every once in awhile, I would like to present things here that may prompt Readers to comment on things political.
I know that for myself, sometimes I get a little lazy about my responsibility as a citizen of our Republic. And, sometimes I get to thinking, "What's the use?"

3pm - Georgie Got Scammed!
I bought an iPhone 7 yesterday. My iPhone 5s needed replacement.
My new iPhone 7 was terrible with iMessage. Made lots of voice recognition errors. So, I phoned Apple support. But apparently the Apple support phone number that I got from a Google search, was a scam operation!!
Note: I will finish this post a bit later.
6:30pm - Finish of Scam Story
At J's Fish and Chips in Lincoln City [Pacific Coast]
So, the guy I talked to, represented himself as Apple Support.
➜ Guy: "Your iPhone 7 has configuration errors. We will send you out another iPhone 7." Give me your shipping address. You will receive the new iPhone 7 in two days."
➜ Me: I gave him the shipping address.
➜ Guy: "We need a security deposit to insure you send back your bad iPhone7. Go to a Rite Aid, WalMart. Some place that sells iTunes gift cards. Buy a $100 iTunes card. You will receive the $100 back after you return your defective iPhone to us."
➜ Me: I phoned the guy back at the phone number he gave me, and told him the gift card number for the iTunes card bought at Rite Aid.
➜ Guy: About an hour later, the guy phoned back. "The iTunes gift card number you gave me has not been activated. It will probably be activated in a day or so. In order to expedite you receiving your replacement iPhone7, buy another iTunes $100 gift card and we will return that $200 when we receive your bad iPhone 7"
➜ Me: I went back to Rite Aid. But instead of buying a second iTunes gift card, I asked the lady in Rite Aid Customer Service about the bad iTunes gift card.
➜ Rite Aid Lady: She wanted to know who received the card?
➜ Me: Apple support.
➜ Rite Aid Lady: "Apple does not request gift cards for service. This does not sound right!"
➜ Me: "Oh my God! This must be a scam!"
➜ Rite Aid Lady: "I'll check the status of your iTunes card." She checked. "The card number that you gave me has been cashed!"
I was suckered! I was scammed!
