I recommend we delete permanently one of the smilies

Ok here we are discussing child abuse and domestic violence and on the list of smilies we have this:

I think we should delete it as in my humble opinion it is in bad taste after the week of events we have had.

I know we have huge issues to contend with, but looking for a smilie for another OP, I thought this was not a good idea to have anymore. How about retiring the smilie??????

Where is Hamas getting all their money?

I cannot imagine it is cheap to continue to have a constant barrage of bombs being released. They must have a secondary source of income arriving to help pay for this.

Bruce Braley's 'chick' ad criticized as sexist


Ok look. I want this guy to win. Where are his advisors? Why can't he make a point without being sexist? Look he already criticized the farmers and now he is going after a woman with his language. Please stop it. We need you in Washington and you can win on issues.

Bergdahl’s Idaho Hometown Cancels Homecoming Celebration

They decided not to celebrate the return of Sgt Bergdahl.


I need a shower

Thinking about Maya Angelou, I went over to Free Republic to see how they are remembering our treasured loss today. Well how disgusting and despicable are these folks. The reason I gandered over there was because I heard from some DUers how they whined about the treatment of Thatcher. So I wanted to see if they were as kind to those they find no so agreeable with......well unfortunately I got my answer. I am absolutely sick to my stomach.

A shower indeed.....

Look at your own risk.

I feel that is post being hidden was completely unfair and unjust

I cannot believe that it was hidden under the new 7 jury decision. I don't think it should have been hidden at all. I had a clean slate and now have to wait 90 days until clean again. No possible appeal????? Ridiculous. Heck even in a trial you get to appeal.

My Mom died November 3, 2013

It has been so weird for me. I am walking around not really believing that Mom is gone even though I do know that it is true. It is very difficult. I feel ripped off too.

Huge Apology

I sincerely apologize to everyone on the Senator Warren thread. It was unprofessional and demeaning to all of us when one displays that type of immaturity that I did tonight. That was big lesson learned for me. My first and last hidden post! Again, I sincerely apologize.

Newbie on board

Hello all!
What a pleasure to be part of this group of intelligent people. I really have enjoyed myself reading all the threads and replying to them from time to time. I live in Maryland and married with 4 children (we wanted the girl badly...lol). I love family, friends and people who take care of others. Thank you so much for this opportunity to learn and be part of this invaluable team.
