Got a heart today...Thank You.

It feels great. I'll be doing my civic duty on Valentines Day...jury duty.

Interesting post I received a FB today

Got this at my FB page today it is from a friend of my wife.
Don't know how yo make it happen but it sounds awesome to me. I watch and donate.

You may have heard that the organizers of the inauguration are freaking out that the performers will be limited to Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.

So....what if there was a televised "freedom concert" with huge celebrities like: Beyoncé and Jay Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, etc., that aired at the same time as the inauguration. What would the president elect think knowing he was not the ratings winner that evening?

And what if all the proceeds of the concert went to: the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, NAACP, CAIR, IRAP, SPLC, Environmental Defense Fund, etc.

Alec Baldwin could be the MC for the evening!

Let's make it happen! Copy & Paste, don't share, or else only your mutual friends will see it.

Dear Donald Trump Jr.

Hey dude,

I saw your comment online about women who can't handle harassment in the workplace just don't belong there.
Need to say I agree with you. I mean come on let's just make it men only. It probably would be easier to get your attention. I've tried in the past. Guess I wasn't aggressive enough. That's at an end.

Dude I love you! I want that little hair on your lips to grant my nether regions a release. Come on over, I really mean come on over, all on me..

I noticed your bulge. Said to my friend I'm going to "date" that bitch. I'm going down into depths I've never been before.

I know you're not put off by this, so com'on give a little. Matter of fact aren't you a little turned on by my aggression?

Com'on I know you want me. The way you dress. The way you walk, your talk, your looks.

You're beautiful. You meet my standards. I knew a loooong time ago I wanted you.

I hope you all realize this is just a little exercise in sarcasm. When I saw the article I vomited.

Hey DU, we have about 10 days to hold Holt's feet to the fire!...


Please flood his Facebook page with requests to have a fair debate.

Don't stop, keep posting.

There are many on the Trump side doing it. We have to overwhelm them.
This is where it may get done. Not here where we all agree.


Take it to the next level. Please. It is a great chance. Use your influence. Make it count.


I did. Com'on flood his page, flood his page with your requests. Flood his page with the request to be fair to both.

We can do this. We can make a difference. Don't let him be a Matt Lauer.


This will be posted with no exepection of answers. Just do it.

To say I'm disappointed is an understatement....

As Democrats we have three excellent candidates.
Just look at the other side. We cajole, we laugh, we are glad that is not our side.

But we,here, are turning into them.

I will support any candidate the Dems put up. I vote my party.

Do I have a thought on who is the better? Of fucking course! Will I slam another's choice?
Yes on the fucking issues! Not anything else.

We will all be better off if a Democrat wins the election. There's too much at stake.

Look at the other side!

All this other shit has got to stop.

I don't post much, I have been here for a loooong time. First as a long time lurker, then I joined.

I come here to get the take on the main issues of our time.

But all this shit that is going down here lately is about supporters, not the ever loving issues.
Try to get real.

I think some people have a fear of change. That ok. Me too. I think some people cannot accept way, way, way differences in political policy, ok! Say that. Face your fears, discuss that, them.
Don't disparage other members for their fears.

This place now reminds me of the steps of grief. Think and listen.

I will never place anyone on ignore, I think it's rude. Just wrong. I need to listen to everyone.
Will I agree? Who knows?

But slamming people for thier beliefs, just not right, not acceptable.

I cannot be here for a great while to respond cuz I kinda got a life outta politics. I need to hike at least five miles a day to keep my fucking dog happy, and I will guess me also

Just remember we are all,in this crap together. We will support each other when we need to.

I love this site, it has made me a more informed and better person. Let's keep that aspect up.

Hey, for decades, mind you, decades...

We have been looking for a person that would justify our anger.
We, as Dems, have been searching, longing for someone, anyone, to extol our virtues
We have settled in the past. We said oh,ok, the lesser of two evil. But the lesser is still evil.
Is that what we want, need, expect?
That's a loser attitude.
You do not expect to win, anything, anything at all..

Now we are faced with a candidate that expresses that attitude that we embrace. People scream socialism, wrong look, etc. where have we gone wrong, where have we separated?

Rivers have two courses. One being the easy, the normal. The other being a course that may be a little different, a new course, a new way.

Why after all these decades must we continue on the same course?
Why after all these decades must we continue with the same old bull that put us in the situation we are today?
Why cannot we accept a new course? The old doesn't work, that's why we're here.

This country, this world is in danger. We are suffering, calling out for help.
We need to break the absolute control that the corporate world has on us.

We all know the facts about climate change, income inequality, sexual inequality, wage disparity and on and on and on. Our litanty, the Democrat Litany, our beliefs, our souls.

Look deep inside.

I don't post much anymore. I will probably not be here to answer much. Having a huge problem with my water supply. But I had to have my two cents put in. Plumber is calling.
I don't think I can afford this. But we will get through. We survive.

"It means we kill"

Occupying the top of the food chain is a very hard place to be. It means we kill.

We kill other species, we kill our own species. We cannot take the time to be introspective, because it's them or us, so we kill. I'm not only talking about animal species, we kill weeds, we kill grass, we kill insects, mostly because they are not in the place we want them to be. So we kill them, no bother anymore.

Humans are the only species on the face of this earth to be such indiscriminate killers. Humans are the only species on the face of this planet to have religion or philosophy which ironically teaches us not to kill. Killing must be an inherent trait.

We preach tolerance, love, understanding, that's all bullshit. It just makes us feel better. We need to kill. The sooner we accept that fact the better we will be.

I read today on this board we should be able to see the pictures of the dead. The dead of our wars, the dead of the plane crash because then when forced to look at the carnage, we may become sane. We may not want to kill after we see those graphic images. We may stop the killing. Bull.

What you don't get when you see pictures is the smell of death. The copper-like odor of blood, the smell of the elimination of body waste, the retching odor of decomposition. The lingering stench of charcoaled bodies, burnt beyond our comprehension. Once you experience that...you may become a little more of a pacifist.

Until we can understand why we kill, why we need to kill, we will never stop. There will be wars, we will hunt, we will slap insects, we will eliminate the undesirable plants in our midst. We will continue to kill.

Humans are a despicable species. Think of all the terrible things we are capable of, torture, murder, we revel in it, we glorify it. We entertain ourselves with our atrocities in movies, tv shows, literature.

We are capable of so much more. Look at the strides we have made understanding our world, understanding the universe we live in. Simply amazing. Yet we bypass the understanding of our very selves. What will it take? When will we say enough?

I have no answers, only questions.
