Can't we all get along?

Last week I posted a title of a group and a link to the site. Suggesting they were trying to get us (Americans) back together. I suggested you all check it out. I got maybe 10-11 replies. One was positive the rest were negative. My post was alerted and taken down as being right wing talking points or something like that. I did reply to the take down but did not disagree with the decision. However I did go to a zoom meeting and it sort of agreed with what i heard here. Now, I received an email with a link to some podcasts. The podcasts are presented by a young lady from the left with someone from the right joining her in the last post. The first podcast is "How did Lincoln do it". the second is "How do you bridge a legacy of pain". The third is titled "How can you talk politics in a divided family".
I personally think they may be some potential here but am not selling anything. If you want to check out the podcasts, send me a pm and I will provide you with the link.
If this is still offensive I will remove it. Just request removal and it will be deleted. Thank you.

macbook air question Re: Highlighting text etc.

Only had this laptop for a month or so but, frequently when i am scrolling on a page or even a spread sheet. The scrolled area will turn blue and it sort of turns off my ability to click mouse etc. It will also grab something I pass over and drag it around screen. ??
Am I doing something wrong?

copied from another site.

By Raul Maseda
It seems the media and even the political parties have made the calculation that making the next election about Joe Biden and Donald Trump is the best way to boost their ratings.
And they're marketing this delusion with skewed polls that are meaningless more than a year away from the General Election because that generates a high level of anxiety that keeps viewers glued to the screen.
That's the Big Lie they've decided to sell, and sad to say, people are buying it.
But the next Election is NOT about DJ Trump or
JR Biden.
It's about whether the American Experiment continues or whether it ENDS.
*The former Republican Party no longer exists and hasn't for quite some time.
What exists today is a coalition of traitors, insurrectionists, cultish fanatics, and White Supremacists who have made their policy goals crystal-clear;
To destroy Democracy in America and replace it with a White Supremacist dictatorship in the service of an Oligarchy.
For those unfamiliar with history, that's Nazi Germany in a nutshell.
Here's how they intend to make it happen;
*Ban all Abortion nationwide and criminalize women and their health care providers.
Reproductive Slavery.
*Disenfranchise Black voters and disadvantage them in every way.
Denying them educational opportunities and erasing their history EVEN UNTO JUSTIFYING SLAVERY is just the tip of the iceberg.
Combine them with institutionalized police violence toward black people, of course.
Jim Crow ring a bell?
*Discriminate, Persecute, and eventually erase LGBTQ+ people.
A Nazi staple.
* Screw NATO and hand over our Foreign Policy to Vladimir Putin.
That echoes the Ribbentrop/Molotov Pact, which divided Europe into Nazi and Soviet Spheres of Influence.
The result?
And quite likely, WW3.
*Deny Climate Change and prevent any efforts to prepare for the worst.
And just as with their antivaxxing lunacies, We The People will pay the price.
* Destroy Public Education by demonizing teachers, defunding education in favor of school "vouchers", and banning books and the teaching of many subjects.
* Corrupt our Courts through bribery, a flood of "dark money", and by appointing and electing Fascists to the Bench.
*Entrench themselves into power IN PERPETUITY by any and all means, including terrorism, intimidation, gerrymandering, voter suppression, and impeaching or simply removing their opponents from office when feasible and undermining their Constitutional power when it is not.
* Destroy Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Nutrition Programs, and every part of our Social Safety Net in order to complete the transfer of American Wealth into the hands of our billionaire Oligarchy, their employers and financiers.
That, and much, much, more, is what the 2024 election is about.
And it is no less than Biblical in importance, because if we fail to defeat this Fascist Tide it will almost certainly be the last free election ever held on American soil.
The Handwriting is on the Wall for all who have eyes to read.
And unless we all do our Duty as American citizens and People of Good Will, I fear it reads;
"All here are now Judged, and ALL are found WANTING"
-Book of Daniel
"No Fate but what we Make", guys.
So vote Blue, wilya?

Smerconish show just explained tfg's growing support among republican voters

You or i can be in fight with sister/brother/spouse and mad as hell. However if an outsider comes after your sister/brother/spouse, you will go to any length to support them. Think about that for a moment.
