About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

About Winning the Lottery???

About the lottery and all those millions.,.....
Waking up, each day, having friends,
Knowing the meaning of love,
And being able to love,
Being kind to others, and receive kindness from others,
Knowing right from wrong,
Not Hurting Others, or Me,
Having some idea about spirituality..(whatever that may be)
Enjoying today, as best as I can....Well...............
That is the lottery.. I won, because I got today...

Trick Huff Post usees to get you to like Jeb Bush.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/

Right now and often the Huff Post has pictures of Jeb Bush. All those pictures of him have a presidential look. Looking up at him, or looking quite presidential. There is a certain positive look. Don't believe it go there now and look. Huff Post is a picture site, the pictures tell the story. Now look at the picture of Bernie at Huff post. All the pictures of Bernie have him with his mouth open and not looking presidential..go and look now.
.Every picture of JBush..has had that look for the last 6 months..Every one...It is not a mistake. I have seen this.. This site favors Bush over the clown car..The pictures of the clown car residents often look kinda silly. That is what this site wants you and everyone who visits there to think. That is what Huff Post is. Almost all the pictures of Bernie have a negative look. Check it out if you don't believe me..

DU is a great place to learn about ideas of all kinds from an incredible number of sources.

It is one of the reasons I really like DU.. There are so many different sources, and so many different topics.... It is just like being in a huge library where you pick up the magazines and other resources with the push of a button. Also, there are many ideas generated by those who frequent DU. We share in presenting the research, and in share in presenting our ideas. This place can be educational, as well as fun. I try not to take the arguments too seriously, because that could ruin my day. Just look at all the topics and groups and the number of links posted here. Incredible!

... Overall, DU is my favorite place to go on the internet.

Why Fox News is Much Worse Than We Thought.

Fox News ( ) exaggerates and lies about many things. That is what it does. The people that do the exaggerating and lying know what they are doing, and it is ok to the bosses there. It is what the boss wants and it is good for the boss and his station.

2nd. Fox News encourages people to come on their cable news and do exactly the same. Lying and exaggerating. Over and over again guests are put on a national cable network to send out their exaggerations and lies.

3rd Through this encouragement and publicity, others lie and exaggerate about stupid and idiotic ideas because at least at one national cable network it is ok and allowed. These exaggerators and liars may not have any connection at Fox News, but because it is ok at their favorite station, it is ok, so they exaggerate and lie,

4th. In a way, Fox News legitimizes exaggeration and lies. If Fox does it, it is ok

5th...As a result. of 1 - 4 above.., we now have some idiots and exaggerators getting national publicity about the federal governments plans to take over (what ever that is) the state of Texas. What is that about???????????

The origins of the political terms, "Right and Left"

The idea of a political "left" and "right" originated during the French Revolution. (1789)

Simply put, those in favor of change and getting rid of the king and his structure, sat on the left side of the assembly. Those that wanted the most change were furthest left of the center..
If you were with the king's way of doing things ,and keeping things exactly the same, you sat on the right side of the assembly. Those strongest with the king, sat farthest right.

.. Also, those who were in favor of changes toward democracy allowing others to participate, vote, and have a voice in government, (like had occurred within the new United States in 1776) and having an open government, also sat on the left side of the assembly. The more in favor of change, the more left you were. That is the origin of the political terms, "left" and "right"

I am proud to be a "leftist" in favor of "open" government and inclusion in the process of the most people possible.

The more people that vote, the better. The more we know about the government, the better. No secret deals. Everyone gets treated as fair as possible. The more open the government is about what it does, the better..

Those in the government do not get any kind special treatment. All people in the country get..."fair and equal treatment" The leaders friends get the same treatment as the poorest people in the country. Big contributors and bigshots..get no special treatment.

The origins of the terms "right" and "left" in politcs. Where did the ideas come from?

Why Baltimore Burns...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10026580215
___________________________________________________________________________
It is my opinion that the Baltimore police are totally responsible for why their city burns..This thread by Ichingcarpenter from yesterday, highlights what the cops did to many people. Those who went through this are hurt and very mad in my opinion. So now there are riots. Guess who is getting back at the city for how the city treated them?? It ain't rocket science is it ?

Freddie Gray not the first to come out of Baltimore police van with serious injuries

But Gray is not the first person to come out of a Baltimore police wagon with serious injuries.

Relatives of Dondi Johnson Sr., who was left a paraplegic after a 2005 police van ride, won a $7.4 million verdict against police officers. A year earlier, Jeffrey Alston was awarded $39 million by a jury after he became paralyzed from the neck down as the result of a van ride. Others have also received payouts after filing lawsuits.


For some, such injuries have been inflicted by what is known as a "rough ride" an "unsanctioned technique" in which police vans are driven to cause "injury or pain" to unbuckled, handcuffed detainees, former city police officer Charles J. Key testified as an expert five years ago in a lawsuit over Johnson's subsequent death.



Christine Abbott, a 27-year-old assistant librarian at the Johns Hopkins University, is suing city officers in federal court, alleging that she got such a ride in 2012. According to the suit, officers cuffed Abbott's hands behind her back, threw her into a police van, left her unbuckled and "maniacally drove" her to the Northern District police station, "tossing around the interior of the police van."

Note: in the third paragraph above, the highlighted sentence says that a former city cop testified that this went on five years ago!!!!!
How long has this been going on, why? who? How did this start, and why didn't it stop? When did it start?
