I am posting this here as I think it is important.

The US will be facing Japan in the women's world cup final. Did you see the own goal England made?

Great that both teams are meeting again as Japan is the defender.

I know, this is not important given the gains that President Obama made over the last week, which is great, but sports is important too.

Some one asked earlier where this cartoon came from!

I copied it from the daily beast but am not able to post it on here.

It is from caglecartons.com

This may be the wrong forum to post this, not sure!

I want to share a beautiful moment with all of you. My daughter encouraged me to go see the Women's World Cup played here in Vancouver between Japan and the Netherlands. The game was really exciting, I was sort of backing Japan and Japan got a goal in the first half and got another goal in the second half. Lo and behold, Netherlands got a goal in extra time, I was happy that they did not go out without a goal.

Let me tell you something, seeing a game live beats anything on TV. Just wanted to share a beautiful moment with you all.

Best regards,

How will the Government of the US put in place a solution to gun control?

It may be a good idea for President Obama to talk to our PM Harper how Canada keeps guns out of the wrong hands. This is just a suggestion from my point of view, I could be wrong. According to the FBI, too many people in the US have access to guns, who should not have access.

Frankly, I do not believe that a 21 year old child should be able to purchase a gun on his/her own.

What I really cannot comprehend is how young people

feel so much animosity against people of colour. Most young people I meet day to day, colour does not matter. Somehow, this kid had to learn to hate from home, otherwise he would not have done what he did. Imagine you are sitting with people in a church for 45 minutes, listening to them preaching the God's word, and then suddenly decided to shoot them. It does not make sense to me, that kid is seriously unbalanced!

I do not know if anyone on here cares about the guy with the armoured

vehicle who attacked the police, blaming them to take his child away! He was so frustrated at being deemed a person of domestic violence. When his dad was interviewed, he did not agree with his non! And the interviewer asked that the son should have got help. And you know what is mind boggling -- the dad (and am paraphrasing) said, where does a white guy go for help. That is so true! Society is focussing so much on women that the men get left behind! Not only that, too many women punish fathers from not seeing their children and the courts need to address that.

Anyone know if Lyric met his goal to buy the mobile home?

LOL, DU is pretty funny, they ask for contributions but you

are not supposed to voice an opinion. When you do, they lock your thread.

Pretty pathetic and they call themselves Democratic Underground. Go figure.

Best site ever with the nicest people but man, DU is not democratic, it stifles conversation that does not suit its agenda!

I might be banned forever, who knows! Was nice meeting you all and I hope NYC gets back in, he is a great guy. He was always nice to me when I had a question.

Best regards and do not give up!

The owners of DU must be doing very well financially in order to

kick long time DUer's off! This will get locked anyways but why don't we have a voice when we subscribe. Isn't that a democractic process? DU is the best place for democrats to come and integrate with each other. However, why can't we ask for a DU'er to get back in, we all make mistakes and NYC is a great democrat, very sad to hear he is banned. I know that people need to be responsible for their actions but this time, NYC might have been stressed out. I have no idea why he was banned or what he typed but am asking the Admins to please reinstate him. One love you all, according to Bob Marley, hate has no place now when so much hatred is going around!

Who would have think that we still remember Michael Jackson!

I really miss him being alive but glad I have all his Albums.

Well am speaking for myself, not sure if anyone on here remember him.
