Merry Corpmas everybody!!!

Hold on to your money, It is only Christmas if you have little kids, I wouldn't want to be a Grinch for the little ones, But I would love to see the corporations with nothing but a lump of coal

So best way to and where-

To watch the debate? I was thinking TYT, any ideas?

I just want to say -

How disappointed I am in the Hillary supporters on DU , They have every right to their choice of a candidate but in the end I would like to believe that as Democrats and supposed progressives that they have at heart what's best for the country and that they would not condone Un democratic tactics to try to smear opponents of their particular choice within their Own party, The fact of the DNC matter is that the vendor screwed up the rest is just the fallout of that screw up, I'm sure I'll be tombstoned for this but I'm so sick of the divisive Crap I Really don't care, P.S. I'm also sick and tired of the ridiculous alerts

Riddle me this-

If as the Hillary bots say that Bernie's Campaign was responsible for this breech which was brought up 2 months ago by Bernie's Campaign why did they not file their own lawsuit?

I Had to-

Move to a red town recently, I have Give em Hell Bernie on mag signs on my doors, For only the third time I've been driving around town I had people waving, Some talking with me about Bernie, I'm feeling some hope for this place, And as always I'm Feeling the BERN!!! , At the very least I can end my day with a Smile

About ruffburr

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
