About Me

But there must be the consensus. I tend to think that if one person is strongly opposed to a lock, and is making that stand based on some principle they are able to articulate, then that position should be respected and consensus does not exist. But if some people are just-kinda-meh-not-sure opposed to a lock, then you can assume that consensus exists. But I think the bigger picture is that if everyone is doing the job in good faith and being polite to each other, then it should not be very hard to determine if consensus exists and act accordingly. http://www.democraticunderground.com/12595617 [/div] ~~~~~~ Hi Jerry!!! :thumbsup:[font color=blue][b][link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1269|Visit the new DU \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Progressive Media Resources Group\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"][/font size][/font color][/b]:thumbsup: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/assets/121223012937-11-obama-face-1223-horizontal-gallery.jpg :thumbsup:[font color = blue][b][link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1269|Visit the new DU \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Progressive Media Resources Group\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"][/font size][/font color][/b]:thumbsup: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/assets/121223012937-11-obama-face-1223-horizontal-gallery.jpg [b][link:http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1269|[font style=\"color:#0000ff !important;\"]:thumbsup: Visit the new DU Progressive Media Resources Group] http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l217/Shockwave_73/warren_2016_bumper_sticker.jpg

Right Fucking Now. Elizabeth Warren for President 2016......

Plan ahead. Nobody else comes close. Elizabeth Warren: "There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own"

"You built a factory out there? Good for you... But I want to be clear:

you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for;

you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate;

you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for."

"You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did."


I declare my support for Elizabeth Warren for President 2016 right fucking now.



Shell. Let's Go.

Inspired by a link in GD, be sure to give it a kick and rec:


A satire site invites you to create your own Shell "Let's Go" poster, like the one I made below.

The website is here: http://arcticready.com/social

Play a cool game on their "Just for Kids" page:


Just for Kids: Angry Bergs

Right now, the polar ice caps of our planet are melting.

That's badóbut it's also good!

That's right! It's bad because our planet needs ice at the poles. But it's good because when the polar ice melts, we at Shell can go up there to get more oil, which can do a whole lot of things. Thanks to oil:

Mommy and Daddy can drive to the store to buy you new toys.
Companies like Mattelô can build new toys.
Engineers can drive to work to design new, better toys that are even more fun to play with.
When you're done with your toys, trucks can take them away to dispose of.

Oil can even help us fix some of the problems that melting ice causes.

So it's fine to be sad about our melting polar ice caps, and about how sad that makes the planetóbut remember to be glad as well, because of all that the oil we're finding there is letting you do, now and far into the future!

I think the GD post: "Women: How feminine are you?" is a valid topic for discussion.

But the Poll and the terminology used to raise the topic were unacceptable, and the member probably not sincere and the poll is now locked.

I offer this link for context:


And my earlier Meta post was, IMO, misunderstood, so I am deleting it.


The discussion I find fascinating is a cultural one about the potential dissonance between femininity and feminism, the generational and regional and cultural aspects and nuances.

Similar gender-based discussions can be, and have been, had around male attributes and stereotypes; can a male be both masculine and sensitive? Is it feminine to be kind and masculine to be mean?

I was raised by women: a grandmother, mother, and sister, and without strong male role models, so these things interest me because I never fit the typical male role in this culture.

I am sorry that a few members mistook my earlier post of the same subject line to mean that I agree with that posting member or with the design of that poll, I agree with neither.

I will now delete that post and leave this one in it's place.

Thank you and have a terrific weekend.
