You'll Love Naomi Klein's Take on the Pope's Popularity...

Published on

Responding to host Larry Wilmore's question on why the pope has become such a celebrity, the This Changes Everything author said, "I don't think it's about religion. I don't think it's that suddenly people are converting to Catholicism. I think basically he's kind of like Bernie Sanders in a white dress, and people are psyched about it."

Eulogy to Mr. Mickey 2 Feb 1996 - Sept 10, 2015

I'm not going to take up too much space in GD for this, but I hardly ever go to the pet group, and …. well, I AM Mr. Mickey's Mom. I always will be. Forever and ever in my heart he goes on living, just like his departed sister, Mallory, his nemesis sister, Scoobie, his loving big sister, Jessie…

Heart aches now, but this in time will pass. I just want to say one thing about my boy, who lived such a wonderful life with me that I took him up for my DU name. The things we see in life where nature on its own is concerned… These are lessons for us. If we watch animals, they forgive, they have unconditional love. They shape and mold us, just like my heart was re-arranged.

There will never be another one like this boy. So many DU posts with him on my lap at the board. I dedicate this post to him.

What would you give these infants to calm their rash?

How Did We Become...

Hateful Little People… ?
I just pondered Freak Kitchen's ultimate little question…

They never tell you face to face
They are the one and only race
They always smile and are polite
They go through life in black and white (Hey!)

They close their eyes and all is bliss
They always scent a prejudice
They cannot spell hypocrisy
They're everywhere, they're you and me

How did we become
Such hateful little people?
How did we become
The scab that we are?
Is it coming through
Hateful little people?
How did we become
The scab that we are?

I hate you, hate
You hate me, hate
Hate ourselves, hate

Bernie Sanders… A Man On Fire!

August 23, 2015 12:00 AM By David M. Shribman / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Well, well, well… If it isn't one of the best, "My Point" opinions I've read from him in a while…

EXETER, N.H. — There was a man with a “Stop Puppy Mills” T-shirt and another whose shirt read “National Sarcasm Society.” There was a woman, dressed entirely in white, holding a banner reading “Lead Us to Clean Energy.” There was a man with an Apache haircut. There was even a little old lady in tennis shoes.

This could only be a Bernie Sanders rally.

And the lady in tennis shoes? She was here mainly out of curiosity. She voted for Mitt Romney in the last two New Hampshire primaries.

Then there was the candidate himself. He wore a dress shirt, open at the neck, and his speech started early and ended late. He used the word “billionaire” more than half a dozen times, and he sprinkled his talk with references to “Corporate America.” He spoke about big campaign contributions (he has none, wouldn’t take any) and the “grotesque level of income and wealth inequality in America” (he deplored it) and won his biggest applause when he said, “This is a rigged economy, an economy that is not sustainable, and that is not an American economy.”

But he wasn’t done yet. In the sweltering confines of the Exeter Town Hall — every seat filled, the back of the hall five deep with standees, the balcony jammed and every one of the seven granite steps outside occupied with the devout, the devoted and the determined, all drenched in heavy perspiration — he launched into his speech: full employment, the Citizens United decision, gay marriage, voter suppression, the Trans Pacific Partnership, student debt, climate change, acidification of the oceans, access to abortion, energy efficiency, the criminal justice system, prison reform, mental health and crumbling infrastructure. In one sentence he crammed in the words “racism,” “sexism” and “homophobia.”

It Takes a Pillage, 2009, when Bernie Sanders interviews Nomi Prins

(Courtesy of visiting Max Keiser's web site)... Thanks for reminding me of this CSPAN interview, still as vital to our understanding today as it was then...

It's really hard being a woman in Texas these days… concealed tampons!

I checked and didn't see this come up, as it's from July 12th, so forgive me if it's a GD discussion already … b u t P L E A S E….

Women are being forced to throw out tampons and maxi pads to enter the Senate gallery, which has been confirmed by DPS. That's right: menstruating women are being denied entry to the Senate gallery unless they throw out their supplies.

From Daily Kos… https://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/07/12/1223118/-Police-Make-Women-Throw-Out-Tampons-Before-Entering-TX-Senate-Gallery-While-Allowing-Concealed-Guns

Maybe we shouldn't conceal them anymore… You know… All a woman has to do to step up to wear her concealed weapon on her hip, and hang the unused tampon from her ears.

I'm glad I got out of Texas when I did….

How about a SINCERE WilliamPitt Appreciation Thread?

I don't like game players on DU…

Sometimes I miss the point of snark or superiority, but I could ALWAYS understand where Will was coming from…



Robert Ariail nails it on Clinton's social platform...

Day two of riding with my Bernie bumpersticker - my first APPLAUSE!

I think I'll start carrying my extra bumper stickers in the car with me. I was in the driver's seat. My husband spotted the guy advancing from our right, flailing, first he wondered if it was anger. But as the other driver got farther ahead, you could clearly see his enthusiasm.

BUMPER STICKERS …. connection with the human race happens…
