Has anyone visited this AIRWOLF on Youtube yet??
This is just the tip of the digital iceberg.
My gut tells me that due to my teabagger ways, my digital presence has been affected by this corrupt machine.
From time to time, I would get NSA industry type advertisements on my website. At one point I had advertisements for Blackhawk helicopters??? At the time, I thought it was great that somehow military leaders had become interested in my site. Now, I think the opposite.
FYI - Normally, the ads you see on YouTube are directly related to what you are searching for. There was no reason for a Blackhawk helicopter advertisement on my barely visible site.
I get ads in Swedish. Go figure.
I bet you do.
