These guys need to be taken down!

Police look for two suspects who stole puppy from boy on southside

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson police say a puppy was stolen on the southside Jan. 13.

Police say suspects walked up to an 11-year-old who was walking a dog in the 5000 block of South Cherry Avenue at 3 p.m. that day.

The suspects pushed the boy to the ground and stole his puppy.

Those with information should call 911 or 88-CRIME.

Have they stopped the day traders from taking to each other....

on Reddit yet ?

Man, I wish I had the money to join into the fun right now. Read some tweets saying that they are blocking people from taking on Reddit to stop them from doing this again. Is that true? I hope not. I don't really do readit but I would love to follow the conversation!

My take of Biden's first week..

I've been at ease even with the stress of Covid. Knowing that an adult is handling the government has been a relaxing change. So has not having to watch the news like I did before is a relief as well.

So how has DU been doing during this first week?

Water is now on Wall Street?

I thought it was a joke at first, being A Late Show and all. But I went looking in on it (see article below). Sadly it's not.




California Water Futures Begin Trading Amid Fear of Scarcity

Water joined gold, oil and other commodities traded on Wall Street, highlighting worries that the life-sustaining natural resource may become scarce across more of the world.

Farmers, hedge funds and municipalities alike are now able to hedge against -- or bet on -- future water availability in California, the biggest U.S. agriculture market and world’s fifth-largest economy. CME Group Inc.’s January 2021 contract, linked to California’s $1.1 billion spot water market, last traded Monday at 496 index points, equal to $496 per acre-foot.

The contracts, a first of their kind in the U.S., were announced in September as heat and wildfires ravaged the U.S. West Coast and as California was emerging from an eight-year drought. They are meant to serve both as a hedge for big water consumers, such as almond farmers and electric utilities, against water prices fluctuations as well a scarcity gauge for investors worldwide.

What is this I hear about Ohio?

That Ohio is in play for another DEM Senate seat as Senator Rob Portman (R) announced he is NOT running for re-election?

Anyone else heard this?

I have found myself in a situation I haven't been in for a while.

One of my neighbors seem to be showing interest in me.

I've been burned so many times that I'm a piece of toast. So I'm not really in the market for romance. I'm keeping my distance, but he is showing signs of being the patience and persistent type.

I don't know what he sees that he likes. I'm like a beat up old truck anymore. And I really don't know how to handle this. Been thinking about this for the last week, thinking that he was just being neighborly. But he asked me out today. Told him I'll think about it.

Maybe that was a turnoff, but I'll know if he asks me again.

LFR's two cents on white privilege.

Of all my siblings, I have been able to benefit from it.

Of the four of us, I'm the one with the pale complexion. Unless someone looks hard and know what to look for, I'm just some white chick.

But my siblings haven't been so lucky. My brother shows our Latino blood strong, and has been stopped by cops that wanted to make sure he was a citizen.

One sister shows our Native American blood and has issues with that . Even my baby sister, who shows our Asian blood has stories.

With my skin, and that alone, has kept me out of harm from police and haters. I did have a run in with Border Patrol but luckily the guy was dumb not because of my skin color.

Yet I'm still treated differently than my siblings. We should not be just because of color. It's sicking, and we need to find a way to stop it.

It's just plan wrong.

I just watched a football game without worrying about an interruption...

due to tRump doing something stupid!

This feels so liberating. I'm still trying to get use to not worrying about what the leader of our country is doing, or about what damage he is doing. After the four years we went through, this actually fills strange.

How are you all dealing with the lack of worry?
