I was kicked out of a group by a person I have on IGNORE because the person has stalked me for years

How on Earth can this individual block me from a group if I have them on ignore. Are they hacking my account? I am getting worried about my safety from this person seriously. If you want the name, I can give it to you privately. Please help. I can't take the abuse.

Somebody on my ignore list just kicked me out of a group

How is that legal?

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Justice Antonin Scalia: 'We Were Best Buddies'


A pretty good story.

Schumer in 2007: Don't confirm any Bush Supreme Court nominee

Sen. Chuck Schumer said in July 2007 that no George W. Bush nominee to the Supreme Court should be approved, except in extraordinary circumstances, 19 months before a new president was set to be inaugurated.

"We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court, except in extraordinary circumstances," Schumer, a New York Democrat, said in prepared remarks to the American Constitution Society, a liberal legal organization.

Schumer cited ideological reasons for the delay.

"They must prove by actions, not words, that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not," Schumer said at the time.


Why oh why did he give Republicans any reason to stop Supreme Court Nominations? This is not good.

I am humbled by the heart

Thank you DUers for your constant thoughtfulness. Also for the incredible education I have received from all of you. You guys are simply the best.


TV Ratings Saturday: Republican Presidential debate wins the night 11.63 million


How on Earth can they get so many on a Saturday night when we can't get that many on a Thursday night the highest viewing TV day of the week. We got 3.3 million. This is so unfair. Even on a freaking Saturday night they get 11 million.

Something is seriously wrong.

I hate this.

Members of the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment, also known as "The Old Guard" are staying with the Tomb of the Unknown Solider at Arlington National Cemetery despite blizzard conditions slamming the area.

"The Tomb Guards maintain a constant vigil at the Tomb no matter the weather conditions," states the group's Facebook page.

Major cities, roadways and airports along the East Coast were largely immobilized Saturday by a massive and deadly snowstorm that showed no signs of letting up.

Public transportation in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., was shut down as local officials called on residents to hunker down and stay off the streets for a second day.

As of early Saturday, more than 60 million people were under blizzard, winter storm or freezing rain warnings. The storm's effects stretched from Georgia to Massachusetts, according to Weather.com.

Despite the blizzard conditions, the guards remained in place. The images that they have shared are a stirring depiction of how dedicated our nation's soldiers are.

His backyard ice rink honors a stepdaughter’s memory. Now county inspectors may close it.


Marc Kohn spent nearly $40,000 and 400 hours building a hockey rink behind his house in rural Poolesville, Md., a winter twist on “Field of Dreams.”

He longed for his childhood days in Boston, skating on neighborhood ponds for hours. And he wanted to honor his stepdaughter Melanie Osborne, a lifelong hockey fan who recently died.

Kohn, 51, called his backyard project Mel’s Rink, hung her name in Christmas lights and invited town residents to play. Since opening two weeks ago, dozens of kids and adults have zipped around the synthetic ice for free.

But this week county inspectors showed up — without their skates. Now Mel’s Rink is in jeopardy.

“It’s a lovely idea, and we understand it’s a labor of love, but it has to be the right place for it,” said Diane Schwartz Jones, with Montgomery County’s department of permitting services.

Killers couldn't even wait 2 hours to start murdering. Chicago better do something about all these murders. They have had 5 straight years of increased number of murders. Looks like number 6 may happen as well. What gun laws can Chicago pass to clean up this mess. They might be the worst in the country.

Eating Bacon Is Better for the Environment Than Eating Lettuce, New Study Says


I would have thought any meat would be bad for the environment moreso then a vegetable. I am kinda surprised. This will be good news for those that have bacon for breakfast. Lettuce eaters may have to reconsider the consequences of eating lettuce.
