How about a SINCERE WilliamPitt Appreciation Thread?

I don't like game players on DU…

Sometimes I miss the point of snark or superiority, but I could ALWAYS understand where Will was coming from…

Respectfully,

Robert Ariail nails it on Clinton's social platform...

Day two of riding with my Bernie bumpersticker - my first APPLAUSE!

I think I'll start carrying my extra bumper stickers in the car with me. I was in the driver's seat. My husband spotted the guy advancing from our right, flailing, first he wondered if it was anger. But as the other driver got farther ahead, you could clearly see his enthusiasm.

BUMPER STICKERS …. connection with the human race happens…

I know this isn't about me, it's my brother… May I ask???

I noticed from comments that whenever there's a question, the group responds…

My brother, who after 40 years of marriage, then divorce, then "adjustment" to find himself, had a girlfriend who finally, after searching around, seemed to be "perfect". I know that nobody is…

Long story (and it is a long one) short, she has dropped him after deciding that he is just to rough for her rather ideal everyday expectations -

Expectations:

1) No tolerance for swearing (she even spelled, "h.e.c.k." when mad)

2) No tolerance for forgetting to call her by a certain time (which he was pretty damned good at doing)

3) No tolerance for "not getting it up" (this was the strange one.. he's in his 60's and I have to say, that's a tall order sometimes)

I could go on, but after playing "Dear Abby" and asking him to honestly analyze this strict regimen, I find that she was pretty predictable as to what she would say and how she would say it relating to every day phone calls, and weirdly, in the bedroom. Now, before you think I'm strange for getting this involved into the discussion, you have to understand that I'm pretty honest with siblings. Frankly, after the years of marriage and what my brother thought it was going to take to "keep a girlfriend", he has analyzed so much with me, that I've asked if he could ask others, especially professionally. I don't want to give sex advice. What I'm really wondering is the controlled nature of this woman. There are too many things unknown behind that kind of control that give me pause. I and my sister have advised him to steer clear. Somehow, he keeps thinking he ought to be able to have a chance again.

There may be many more issues brother-wise… I'm just wondering about the over 60 dating and relationship thing and if this controlled behavior from his now ex-girlfriend was a sign of much stronger issues with her.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance…

Tonight, Bill Maher was ON...

I hated the right wingers, but loved the guest comedian and discussion about our prison system…

Anyone see it?

181 Clinton Foundation donors who lobbied Hillary's State Department

The size and scope of the symbiotic relationship between the Clintons and their donors is striking. At least 181 companies, individuals, and foreign governments that have given to the Clinton Foundation also lobbied the State Department when Hillary Clinton ran the place, according to a Vox analysis of foundation records and federal lobbying disclosures.

If you're all so bent on predicting what will happen, based on who wins the primary, why not THIS?

What will happen if we don't demand accountability from who's running gainful employment out of the country?

*What will happen if we continue to let someone else duke it out over the SCOTUS decision of Citizen's United?

*What will happen if the banking industry, not the human beings running it are the only ones held "accountable" for big banks holding the return on investment for criminal actions of OUR money?

*What will happen with continual legislation to spy on everyone?

*What will happen with routine college debt and nothing to show for it but two shitty jobs to never pay off that debt?

*What will happen to the working class and working poor?

*What will absolutely happen if WE don't demand accountability and reparation?


This isn't a football game, citizens…

Michele Bachmann says the Rapture is coming: 'Rejoice'

Daily Kos Ref: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/04/25/1379546/-Michele-Bachmann-says-the-Rapture-is-coming-Rejoice

Looks like the apocalypse to me!
?1354745632

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann is very excited that the world may be coming to an end. Iran may be getting the bomb, and gay people are getting married these days, and all of this is wonderful news because it means Israel is going to be destroyed and there will be wars and plagues and famines and that means Jesus is going to come back to fly all the bestest Bachmann-approving-of Christians into heaven while her enemies get left to rot in whatever post-nuclear wasteland comes next. You think we are making this up. We are not making this up.


"Jesus Christ is coming back. We, in our lifetimes potentially, could see Jesus Christ returning to Earth, the Rapture of the Church."…so, sayeth the craziest bag-o-nuts to ever have been seen in Congress
