Some information that I just found out watching MSNBC

I cannot see the man's name so if someone finds out please let me know and I will edit this:

Anyway, he was talking about a study of voters where they were shown candidates and pieces of information like health care, Social security, food stamps juxtaposed with taxes for the very wealthy and deregulation that favor the big companies and they found that people did not understand that the GOP is on the side of the big companies and removing security nets for the middle class and the poor. Trump voters just thought he would "shake things up" not having the slightest idea that that meant more money for him and his cronies.

These voters, Trump voters, do not realize that they are voting for the wealthiest people in the country and against their own best interests.

That information needs to be explained to all people. People would not vote for a Trump if they knew what we Democrats knew; that he is all for the big companies and not for the average Joe and Jane.

This should be a message that we sell to the masses from now on. The GOP only wins when people believe their lies.

So there is this man who goes to my Buddhist group who has been expelled

from at least one Christian church and spoken to at at least one other about his behavior toward women.

He is one of those types that quarters off a woman from the heard and then talks her ear off and follows closely and would have sex with her if he could ever get her to have sex with him but he can't. He is a 40 year old virgin.

He also has Traumatic brain injury. He can speak fine and some of the other things that he used to do, (like write obsessively in his journal) he has stopped because I have gotten on his case about

The issue is when I found out he was kicked out of this other church yesterday because, (according to him) "some of the women have had bad experiences with men and I saw with them when I wasn't supposed to"

I kind of blew a mini fuse. Others seem to think he does not know what he is doing and they give him a big pass and I think he damn well should know what he is doing and he should cut it the fuck out.

Of course I am one who he cornered when I first came around. I am also a survivor or sexual abuse.

How do you find out how much of a person's behavior, 'he can't help" and how much is just serious self centered-ness or even using his disability as a means to get away with what other people would not get away with?

I wish we had a forum where we could just bitch about all the things that our friends can't stand to

listen to anymore.

I am not a big complainer but I have some things that have been going on in my family for several years and I feel I can't talk about anymore because I have worn my friends out. It's the same damn problem that I can accept sometimes but go crazy over at other times

I am really trying to be spiritual about it.......things happen for a reason yadda yadda but something I want to blow a hole in the wall with a piece of home decor. I screamed all alone in my house today and I felt dizzy and then I got a pain in my head so I thought I gave myself a stroke.

Here is a little interpretive emoticon expression piece on how I have been feeling all day.

Hartz's made a pledge to stop obtaining dog treats from China. NOT

I was just at CVS and looking at their dog treats. It turns out the the CVS brands have really stood by their promise and no longer get any treats from China but Hartz, which is right next to them are still doing it!

I just wrote them a strong letter. If anyone else wants to write or check with a CVS that they may visit here is the link.


Remember how many dogs died by bad pet food and pet treats from China? There was no regulations over there. And the sad thing is I was told by this man that there still are no regulations.

My babies deserve more than crap coming from China. So do yours.

House committee was set to ease more restrictions for hand gun silencers today

House committee was set to quietly ease gun restrictions hours before baseball field rampage

A Mere hours after a gunman opened fire at an early-morning Congressional baseball practice, a House committee was set to consider a bill that would make it easier to buy silencers for firearms.

The House Committee on Natural Resources Wednesday cancelled “until further notice” the legislative hearing on the SHARE Act. As mic.com reports, embedded in the GOP version of the bill is a provision that would loosen restrictions on firearms, including allow felons and domestic abusers to buy silencers.


3 people were killed at a UPS today. 13 killed in last 72 hours. WHY do we have

and entire thread showing support for the shot congress people who are responsible for the guns and not for every other people who has been killed in the last 72 hours!!!!

I am so fucking sorry that I cannot feel sorry for these people who, to my mind are responsible for the damn guns that were used to shoot them in the first place.

Go ahead and lock this thread or flame me. I don't care. I can't muster up one ounce of sympathy for them. Perhaps if one was killed I could feel bad for their family but not now.

And on top of everything they have the best health care while the great mass of other victims of gun violence suffer monetarily for long after because of health care bills.


I found a really bad Twitter account that is only listed as "insensitive" but should

be blocked. The person is a way bad racists with a photo of Pres. Johnson talking about people using the "n" word.

I don't want to post the link here right now because of what it says but I thought if a bunch of people reported it, like I just did, maybe the account will be removed.

Here is the name of the Twitter User: @NJConservLatino He has over 2,300 followers. It would be great if he were GONE

If I am in the wrong forum please tell me where to go. Thanks

RNC's Talking Points for Comey's testimony tomorrow. We should start a drinking




You may all know this but I just actually HEARD Hillary give an explanation of what Russia and the

Trump campaign did to win this election. And they are still doing it, (one thread today is talking about Why they are still demonizing Clinton??? OK here is the answer. It is part of the Trump/Russia campaign to dis-inform, confuse and distract)

(The full transcript of what she said at Code 2017 conference is here: It is important reading - It was also on MSNBC)


I finally understand a big part of it and I hope everyone does, because this thing is bad.

Here is why.

Within 24 hours of Trump's pussy grabbing audio appearing, the John Podesta emails were dumped. ALL ON PURPOSE TO GET PEOPLE LOOKING AWAY FROM TRUMP.

But on top of them, Hillary keeps using the term "Weaponizing" this bland information and as far as the Podesta emails here is what that meant.

She said they were beyond boring, nothing in them. I can't remember anything in any of the emails either. But they started picking out pieces of information and creating absurd but horrifying claims that convinced many people that Hillary Clinton was a BAD BAD person.

(Remember how they convinced so many people that she was guilty of every bad thing possible, including TREASON but they couldn't prove it because she paid all her staff to "scrub" her emails?

She deleted her emails, which every single one of us does, and this mob of Russian/American illusionists convinced almost 1/2 the nation that ...... SHE IS A TRAITOR!

The other very important thing that I just heard was, In order to do this they had to have this information ready. They had to have people in the US, probably the ones working for Wikileaks compiling bullshit information that they were keeping ready for when Trump did something stupid or information came out about him that they didn't want people to know about. (She even said this damn Covfefe might be just another diversion)

It is all in how they changed our view of reality, (She said that too). We frantically reading bullshit emails, looking for something horrible and then trying to fight their rediculous accusations with reason, (which never works) and they are just planning on their next dump of absurdities. All to keep their base singing Trump's praises and screaming about how evil Hillary Clinton is, (and of course it will be someone else when they can find someone ...... Oh there was a #FuckBillMahar thing going around Twitter so I guess they are trying get Bill Maher to take over somewhat but I don't think that one is going to fly. Guaranteed they are looking right now for more scapegoats that they'll pull out when they need them

So it is.....

1. They are guilty of a lot of things
2. They have bullshit information waiting to dump whenever Trump does something stupid or when real concrete connections between him and Russia or one of his cronies and Russia comes up. People in the US were and are working for them, compiling this information
3. They have people employed to twist information around and get Democrats chasing their tails trying to debunk their insanity and also to keep their insane base happy


AND - If Trump goes away they will continue to use these techniques until it is stopped. That's what I believe anyway

I fear Putin and Trump are building an iron curtain around the US and a few other nations.

The Iron Curtain was the name for the boundary dividing Europe into two separate areas from the end of World War II in 1945 until the end of the Cold War in 1991. The term symbolizes the efforts by the Soviet Union to block itself and its satellite states from open contact with the West and non-Soviet-controlled areas.


Trump and Putin and their buddies are isolating us. What are we if he takes away our connections with the West? I hate this and I am really getting scared now.
