When anyone runs for public office, some things should not matter.

In my mind, these include:

1. Age

2. Sex

3. Skin color/ethnicity

What does matter includes their honesty, ability to think on their feet, ability to see global issues clearly and so on...

Just my two cents!

Trump must not be allowed anywhere near the White House.

Especially as the Republicans' nominee.

If he's their nominee, that's just too damn close for comfort for me.

He is just the wildest card possible.

This video is so good that I had to bring it over from Facebook. Time for goosebumps.

I just ran across this article on Facebook and thought it worth posting.

Eric Hensal was a close friend of WCGreen.

A new campaign video from Bernie Sanders:

I found this on Facebook. I don't know if the link is liberal or not.


The first four paragraphs:

I think we can all agree that the GOP is terrible at governing. Also, their ideas are lousy. Their economic plans are fantasy-based and have repeatedly been proven not to work; their views on social issues are antiquated and cruel and play to an ever-shrinking base; their denial of scientific evidence is dangerous and becoming more and more difficult to peddle, and their knowledge of international affairs is embarrassingly skimpy.

Since the facts don’t work for them, they have to bolster their electoral prospects with the things they are really good at: creating propaganda and dirty tricks. From framing issues, to presenting a unified messaging front to working under the radar to spending their money in secretive ways, the GOP knows how to distort the truth and spread their message.

They have applied these skills to a years-long, expensive, sophisticated, insidious game to bait the left into believing and delivering their anti-Clinton message. And it’s working pretty darn well.

When Mitt Romney lost the election, the GOP looked at the potential field of Democratic candidates, and determined that Hillary Clinton was most likely to be the Democratic choice for 2016. Beginning then, a number of conservative groups, including American Crossroads–created by Karl Rove–and America Rising, set to work to develop messaging that would damage her with voters on the left.

The effort to vilify Mrs. Clinton could ultimately cost several hundred million dollars, given the variety and volume of political organizations involved.

I have been reading over on DU2--Specifically, my bookmarked posts.

And I ran into a problem.

When I got to the Lounge section, the bookmarked posts were nowhere to be seen. The list just stopped. All the other forums are there.

I realize DU2 is not a priority for you, but I do like to read my old posts now and then.

I hope you can help. It would mean quite a lot to me, being a sentimental person.

This video is a compilation of 30 years of speeches by Bernie Sanders. It is worth watching.

Beware the anger of a patient man is the saying that comes to me now. Bernie has been very patient--40 years worth of patience. Now he's angry and now is his time, and ours.

I'm giving serious thought to learning how to use RAW files.

I've seen the quality of those photos and I want mine to look that good.

But I have doubts. I'm a slow learner and I've never mastered the manual part of my camera, the Nikon D3200. I mostly use the auto/no flash setting on the little dial. And I have gotten some really good photos with that.

But I want more.

Are there any books that any of you would recommend? Or any sources of information on how to shoot in RAW?

Any help you feel like passing along would be great!

Thanks in advance.
