This bird is singing a tune. Anyone know what it is?

I got these notes: F D C B-FLAT A G C F F

Maybe he is singing and the piano players is just putting chords to what he is singing but he repeats notes like a song.

Praying for a "strong African American'' for Trump

They are all praying Trump, laying hands on him and asking God for a strong African American to represent him.

The reason people in the SUNSHINE state can't lease

solar panels is there is a law against it. Rick Scot get tons of money from the electric companies and obviously don't not give a rat's ass about the environment. There are only 3 other states with these types of laws.

I just sent him an email. I hope people figure out how to get this man to act like an adult with morals.

I would gladly put leased solar panels on my house. The amount you pay to lease is far covered by your savings on electricity.

I recently heard another really good observation of what bush did

when he was told, "Our country is under attack". Normally he would be whisked away because that is what you do with presidents when an attack is happening on our soil. Also all the children should have been evacuated into a safe place since the school, just for the fact that the president was in it. It would be a terror target.

Because the president is always one of the main targets and it was known where he was that day.

So how did he know he and the children were safe? I think the rest of the day they had him up in Air force 1 protecting him.

It just doesn't make sense.

The Unmistaken child. One Amazon for $2.99 Worth it.

This film is so inspiring, so informative and absolutely magical.

It is about a Buddhist monk who followed his teacher his whole life until his teacher died. Then he was asked by The Dalai Lama to find the reincarnation of his teacher.

It is the story of his very long search. You get to see Buddhist rituals and interesting ways they search for someone's reincarnation.

I couldn't find it originally so I bought the DVD and have watched it and shared it with friends.

Documentary "Divorce Corp" is amazing. You will want

to punch the next family lawyer you see.

I had no idea the system they have set up to make money off of the poor people who are going through one of the toughest times in their life. AND how horrible some courts are about child custody.

It is on Netflix

To the ones saying our problem is not guns but a deterioration

of society. As if we just change people's attitudes we can stop such killings.

What do you think a person's attitude becomes when he grows up in a country that is constantly at war with other countries, dropping bombs, drones, executing it's own people, and filling up the prisons with people who really need medical care?

And for those of us trying to preempt these values on our young people by teaching non-violence we are ultimately called, "traitors" " and told we "hate America" and we "hate our troops"

This country teaches violence. Selling guns is just part of it.

I am just going to say this now.

Half of the time I read posts I don't know what the Hell you are talking about.



EDIT: To those of you who think I should call 911 and go straight to the looney bin ask yourself one question.

How many times have you had to leave to figure out what the new LETTER texts mean.

LIHOP
MIHOP

Remember those?

And have you ever wondered what a particular post means to the thread? Like telling everyone you are going out for ice cream under the OP: "Trump is #1 in the GOP primaries"

Then again, going out for ice cream would seem like the right thing to do at such a time.

Maybe people have seen this but study finds homophobes have gay tendencies

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/gay-and-lesbian-well-being/201307/are-homophobes-really-gay

There is some evidence to suggest as much. In a 1993 study, levels of homophobia were assessed among 64 men along with their sexual arousal (measured by increases in penile circumference) in response to erotic videos of heterosexual, same-sex female, and same-sex male encounters. Those who scored high on homophobia were more likely to also manifest sexual arousal in response to the videos of male homosexual encounters.* In a more recent study it was found that men raised in authoritative households were more likely to repress same-sex attractions and to exhibit more hostility to gay people.**

Emile Griffith, a recently deceased welterweight and middleweight champion, pummeled an opponent to death after he had called him an anti-gay slur, Griffith continuing to punch him in the head well after he had clearly won the fight. Though he denied he was gay or bisexual at that time, later in his life Griffith admitted to having had affairs with several men including a male partner who cared for him up until his death.



Add this anecdote to several others including that of right wing politician Larry Craig, who pled guilty to lewd behavior toward other men in an airport bathroom but who also championed anti-gay legislation during his political career, and Ted Haggard, leader of the famously anti-gay National Association of the Evangelicals, who resigned after it was discovered he was engaging male prostitutes.
