HoF = June 17, 1873

Susan B. Anthony’s court trial began today in 1873 – she had been arrested for voting in the previous November’s election. Although the trial would lead to a conviction, Anthony refused to pay the fine she was sentenced to; authorities decided not to pursue further legal action.

Rumor Has It

Anticipation ... It's keepin' me waiting ...

James Taylor and Carly Simon To Reunite!
Inside word from “Late Night With David Letterman” is that for one of the final shows for “Big Dave,” Carly Simon and James Taylor will stage a very unexpected yet highly anticipated reunion (first in well over 30 years) to sing their big hit duet “Mockingbird,” which was itself a cover version of the 1963 hit by Inez and Charlie Foxx. “Mockingbird” is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, when Carly Simon released it as a single from her “Hotcakes” album, where she was seen in all white with pregnant tummy (son Ben Taylor) on the LP cover.

Sonny and Cher appeared on the Letterman show in a famous “reunion” and they sang “I Got You Babe” for adoring fans. Now, it’s Simon and Taylor’s turn to ‘do a solid’ for their friend Dave. The reunion was actually orchestrated by super sax man David Sanborn (himself a former regular in Letternman’s band) who played on the original record “Mockingbird” as well. #SetYourTivo

You are better off, MissMillie. Dude was cruising from the get go.

on edit:
you can not use sincere words while simultaneously doing an insincere act. It negates itself and makes a liar out of the person doing it.

Human Rights Day -

Human Rights Day 2014

I never thought that I would see the Human Rights issue made fun of on DU.

A world wide effort to ensure that all people be treated decently and fairly with dignity and respect.

Human rights are basic rights and freedoms that all people are entitled to regardless of nationality, sex, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, language, or other status.

Human rights include civil and political rights, such as the right to life, liberty and freedom of expression; and social, cultural and economic rights including the right to participate in culture, the right to food, and the right to work and receive an education. Human rights are protected and upheld by international and national laws and treaties.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is the foundation of the international system of protection for human rights. It was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10th, 1948. This day is celebrated annually as International Human Rights Day. The 30 articles of the UDHR establish the civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights of all people. It is a vision for human dignity that transcends political boundaries and authority, committing governments to uphold the fundamental rights of each person. The UDHR helps guide Amnesty International's work.

We also use these principles to help us define human rights and the issues we relentlessly fight for.

As a sentient being, a thinking, feeling, perceptive member of the Human Race allow me to

answer you questions in the order you asked =

Are you really able to do that, YES or is something else happening?NO

Are you confusing differences of opinion regarding political methods and objectives with hate?NO

Does a mere difference of opinion constitute hate?no

Does a failure to embrace feminist ideology with sufficient fervor constitute hate?
substitute the word human for feminist and ponder your own question.

Does not telling you what you want to hear constitute hate? I would rather deal with your honest hatred than your mealymouthed, smarmy, passive/aggressive comebacks

Please note this was answered by an Individual of the Human Race. There is no MindMeld. Other PEOPLE may answer your questions differently. I speak only for myself.

I have a list (not on paper) of what I look for in a man. Off the top of my head, I am interested

in these qualities =

Kindness and a sense of humor,
common sense,
an awareness of their surroundings,
comfortable in their own skin,
likes to visit the cities but prefers to live in the country.
a sense of wonderment about the universe.

I can not speak for anyone else but, I would consider these attributes to be the proper criteria for me.

A sort of yang to my yin, if you will.
