"RT Caught in a LIE"!!


Thanks for info, Duckhunter

You're not the first person on DU that I've heard this from, Ron Green. Others whom I've

respected over the years have also vouched for this since Shinseki has taken over.

Thank you for your Service!

Here Are the Enemies of America's Veterans.. :( It's not Eric Shinseki..

Interesting.. thank PS..

Organ Mountains - Desert Peaks is the eleventh national monument designated by President Obama under the Antiquities Act and, in every instance, his administration has bent over backward to get input from nearby communities and to select places that are rich in both cultural and natural heritage. In other words, the Antiquities Act is being used exactly as intended.

Another one bites the dust: Judge strikes down Pennsylvania marriage ban


"The dominoes continue to fall, with a federal district court judge in Pennsylvania ruling in favor of marriage equality just a day after a judge in Oregon did the same. "In future generations, the label same-sex marriage will be abandoned, to be replaced simply by marriage," Judge John Jones concluded in the Pennsylvania case. "We are a better people than what these laws represent, and it is time to discard them into the ash heap of history."


Totally a thousand and more.. My son was born in Philly while we were on vacation.. Mahalo!

Benghazi Backfire: Fox "news" Lowest Rated Non-Holiday Week in 13 Years!


Fox News has gone all Benghazi all of the time, and the result has been Fox’s worst rated non-holiday week with younger viewers since before 9/11/ in 2001.

According to The Wrap, “During the week of May 5, 2014 — the most recent for which numbers are available — Fox News delivered an average of 180,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demographic in live-plus-same-day measurement across the total day. That measures programming from 6 a.m. until the following 6 a.m. Fox pulled the same number the previous week, the week of April 28.”

To put this into context, Fox News only averaged 4,000 viewers on Christmas week last year. Fox’s other record low came during Christmas week in 2012. In order to find a non-holiday week where Fox News had fewer younger viewers, one has to go the whole way back to the week before the 9/11 terror attacks.


So, there's that!

Mahalo for the OP, she~GOTV2014

And, his Sister's Keeper as demonstrated by this kindly act in November 2nd, 1988, she..

Blast from the Past..

(Harvard, c 1988)


Extracts: Mary was a newlywed and ready to move to Norway, but was stopped at the airport because she didn’t have enough money for the trip. Then a stranger turned up and paid for her.

Mary Menth Andersen was 31 years old at the time and had just married Norwegian Dag Andersen. She was looking forward to starting a new life in Åsgårdstrand in Vestfold with him. But first she had to get all of her belongings across to Norway.

At the airport in Miami things were hectic as usual, with long lines at the check-in counters. When it was finally Mary’s turn and she had placed her luggage on the baggage line, she got the message that would crush her bubbling feeling of happiness.

“You’ll have to pay a $103 surcharge if you want to bring both those suitcases to Norway,” the man behind the counter said.

Mary had no money. Her new husband had travelled ahead of her to Norway, and she had no one else to call.

“I was completely desperate and tried to think which of my things I could manage without. But I had already made such a careful selection of my most prized possessions,” says Mary.

Although she explained the situation to the man behind the counter, he showed no signs of mercy.

“I started to cry, tears were pouring down my face and I had no idea what to do. Then I heard a gentle and friendly voice behind me saying, “That’s OK, I’ll pay for her”.”


The piece of paper said ‘Barack Obama’ and his address in Kansas, which is the state where his mother comes from. Mary carried the slip of paper around in her wallet for years, before it was thrown out.

“He was my knight in shining armor,” says Mary, smiling

MOre to the story..

Such a sweetheart, she~
