Anyone else here lost their bookmarks?

Was checking my account features and under "bookmarks" nothing shows up.

Was there a change I missed?
anyone else have this problem?

I could ask admin, but that forum is weeks behind in replies.

How big is the refugee problem? ........... THIS big.

a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan

from Planting Peace dot org.

New candidate has entered the race for Pres.

In New Hampshire today, a man calling himself Vermin Supreme filed for the presidential primary.
He said in his administration, every American will receive a pony.
He also plans to defeat ISIS by going back in time.
Oh, and he wears a large boot on his head.

as seen on Facebook:

He doesn't sound much nuttier than some others in teh race. ( Looking at you, Carson)

Handy list of who is who in the Syrian and Middle East conflict

Esp. interesting is who arms who, listed halfway down.
Remember, it boils down to a Sunni/Shia conflict primarily. ( ISIS is anti Shia and most everyone else except their version of Sunni Islam)


Next time you hear someone say "send Syrian refugees back where they came from", show them this:

Something to bear in mind, perhaps

Roanoke Mayor gets BLASTED by the world after racist remarks re: refugees.

He invoked President Roosevelt's incarceration of the Japanese, implying it was a good thing!
and compared Syrian refugees to them.

He called for all involved to “suspend and delay” any assistance “until these atrocities end, or at the very least until regarded as under control by U.S. authorities, and normalcy is restored.”

He continued, “I’m reminded that President Franklin D. Roosevelt felt compelled to sequester Japanese foreign nationals after the bombing of Pearl Harbor,” he said, "and it appears that the threat of harm to America from ISIS now is just as real and serious as that from our enemies then.”

then he apologized today , saying he did not realize anyone outside of the Roanoke would have noticed.

Well, everyone noticed, including George Takei, who put up a Facebook post about it.

Watch this, it's a treat:

Have you seen the new-ish "Americans for Jesus" superPac page?

Here is the landing page.......look at the list of coming events.

Next, swallow all liquids, then look at their "list of Issues" down page, under "Platform".


Jeb got attacked by his tongue again....

From JuanitaJean.com:

Okay, so you’d think the Bush Boys would know that they do not have the necessary genes appropriate to conveying parables, metaphors, or, for that matter, speaking English proficiently.

But ya gotta give them an A for effort.

You know the metaphor where you put a frog in a pan of cold water and slowly turn up the heat? And how the frog will not notice and allow itself to eventually boil?

Jeb! tried to explain the United States slipping into the horrific evil of something-or-other, and decided that a megaphone would be just grand.

Then, Mr. Bush went for the frog metaphor. And that’s where the problem for him began.

“It’s like the crabs in the, you know, whatever —the crabs in the boiling water,” Mr. Bush tried.

“Frogs,” an audience member shouted out, helpfully.

“The frogs,” Mr. Bush continued. “You think it’s warm, and it feels pretty good and then it feels like you’re in a whirlpool—you know, a Jacuzzi or something.”

He concluded with a morbid twist: “And then you’re dead. That’s how this works.”

By the way, the horrific evil was free college tuition.
