This post was originally to be titled: Who is this broad, and why can't I keep her off of my screen?!. You'll see why shortly.
There is a nice Apple iPad that I was given to use for work. I try to keep it "clean" and not do anything other than work-related tasks on it. Seeing as I'm still much more used to a pre-Windows-10* "desktop", without strange pictures and videos flying about, I don't know how to deal with the home screen stuff on these devices, other than to not put/have anything on there but the icons.
Usually, I just go straight to the 4 or 5 icons of the "apps" - programs, that is, that I use regularly. However, beside a weather report from Cupertino, California, pretty far from home** there are a few other blurbs, as I am wont to calling them, on the screen. One that keeps being on there is a picture of this older lady in a blue dress wagging her finger as if she's lecturing me. I didn't know who it was until I took my first guess about 10 minutes ago. That horrid scene, reproduced even larger above, is Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
I'd first thought that this evil Totalitarian broad was continually appearing up there because Peak Stupidity had that picture up at one point, and, you know, the software is so damned smart that it just KNOWS I want to see her on my screen often. However, there are 2 arguments against this:
1) I use the browser on that device, as with almost other program on it, for work stuff only. Peak Stupidity hasn't been pulled up but a handful of times.
2) I looked for posts here that involve Governor Whitmer, and I only found these 2 so far: Michigan v Sweden in Corona Challenge and Michigan Totalitarian bitch exercises her Social Distancing Waiver
Hey, I don't have a TV so that I won't have to put up with being lectured by, or ever have to see, bitches like Gretchen Whitmer. I'm not in the Michigan State Legislature for that reason too, along with many others.
What is Gretchen Whitmer doing on the screen of my work tablet? I have swiped her off of it about 10 times, but SHE KEEPS COMING BACK! Is she everywhere? Is she in The Cloud now? That could be a good sign, meaning she's no longer on earth. Anyone else seen her? If I knew how, I'd report it to Apple. They must know, as is obvious to me, that this is a BUG, not a FEATURE.
* What goes on on that Windows 10 screen is unfathomable. I got it before then. Honestly, I'm partial to a ">" prompt with a blinking cursor, so, don't mind me ...
** Yeah, I know. It's the home of Apple, Inc.
