This is about me, for a minute

Normally I am not ALL that involved on DU though I participate somewhere on the board almost daily. I share photos I take, post things that make me laugh, and every now and then add some articles that are maybe worth reading whether they are my thoughts or those of others.
I read threads if my time allows or my interest is piqued or both, and I do comment at times.
DU is an important component of my daily life.

I've been kicked out of the Hillary Group permanently, once for only a day and re-accepted, and then booted forever. I have at times clicked on a thread to comment just to be stopped in my tracks by the yellow banner of being banned.
After a back handed face palm, rolling my eyes because nobody likes being shunned, I usually go on my merry way.
OK, so it's almost every damn day, but who's counting.

I have slowly begun to realize the gurgling creek of hostility and ugliness that leaks out of the Hillary Group towards the Bernie folks, and it is beginning to dawn on me that there is real truth in the complaints I stumble across made by others about the viciousness at times. The group as a whole reminds me of how I feel when I see Carly Fiorinas face and demeanor.
Are these my fellow Democrats?
Is there really a need for this?
Do we not all pull for the same thing, except still with a different horse in front of the wagons of our efforts?
Do we not all want to arrive at the promised land first and united and leaving the "devils" behind?


My copy of "Where to invade next" came in the mail. I think I will pop it in and see again what is possible in other countries and what we seem to not understand in this one:
Change is coming in almost all the critical areas of human well being where we lag behind.
We will arrive there slowly with the status quo, and faster with a bit of a revolution to help it along.
But come it will.
It is law

So, in the words of Rodney King: "Can't we just all get along?"

Lose / Lose. May this fake or non alliance continue through the election.RNC and the Donald. ('toon)

Greetings from Charlotte - a very short walk from car to destination

A friend of mine performed in a play and I drove to see the matinee. Tomorrow is the deadline the government set to our hasty lawmakers who passed a discriminatory law in 11 hours, and now have called a 5 day deadline “being bullied”.

Since it all started in Charlotte I took a few photos for you, my son calls me “the war correspondent” as of late, and one never knows what may happen so my camera is always in my pocket.

Just a peaceful interesting walk:

The devil's stamp is on Trump now.

Dick Cheney apparently has now given him his support

Officer Tammy Cox: Proud member of the bathroom police

Bringing you this video from North Carolina


(I so hope this works, I'm not very good at this, and worked hard to try to bring it to you)

Prescience by a black man born in 1868

I guess it was unchecked ignorance that allowed the rise of a relentlessly ignorant, xenophobic, racist vulgarian like Donald Trump.

Moving right along with Ted and Carly ....

Or with "Mean and Meaner", as Barbara Boxer called them in a tweet

Looking for something to laugh at -- found it

I have no explanation, except that I was in the right place at an interesting time.

Just sayin': Let's fire them.

Koch Brothers Consider Purchasing First Democrat - Andy Borowitz reports

WICHITA (The Borowitz Report)—Charles and David Koch, the billionaire industrialists who have spent decades acquiring a world-class collection of Republicans, revealed over the weekend that they are considering purchasing their first Democrat.

“We’ve always bought Republicans, and our father bought Republicans before us,” Charles, the elder Koch, said. “They’re bred to be obedient, and they respond to simple commands.”

He said that he and his brother had considered acquiring a Democrat only after determining that none of the Republicans on offer this year was worth adding to their collection.
“It’s kind of a scary proposition for us, because we’ve never owned a Democrat before,” he said. “We don’t really know what we should be looking for.”

Koch said that he and his brother learned, after making some phone calls, that other oligarchs have bought Democrats in the past, and “had good experiences with them.”

“That was very reassuring,” he said.

But he bemoaned the absence of online consumer reviews that could help people who are, like him and his brother, interested in purchasing a Democrat for the very first time. “Yelp needs to jump on this,” he said.

While acknowledging the risk inherent in owning their first Democrat, Koch said that it would probably turn out to be a better investment than some of the Republicans they have recently purchased. “It can’t be worse than Scott Walker,” he said.
