Personal Privilege! Please Read!

I was writing several paragraphs of a well-reasoned and substance-based post regarding Secretary of State Tillerson, the Russian invasion of Crimea, Exxon's relationship to Russia's Gazprom, the unjustified movement to eliminate the sanctions against Russia, and referring to Putin as a pissant, and as I neared the end of the post, it literally disappeared from the screen. Somebody, somewhere did NOT want that post to see the light of day. I'm not a nut case, and I have posted before. This was WEIRD.

The Glass Half Full . . .

I can't take credit for this. I read it someplace several years ago, but - in an interesting way - it seems to summarize a lot of what I have seen in political philosophy, and is also funny - at least to me.

Some say the glass is half full.

Some say the glass is half empty.

Republicans say "The glass is MINE."

Could you help me please?

Ever since we moved to the https format, I have had difficulty accessing graphics on my phone (which is what I generally use to log on to the DU site). I haven't changed any of my settings, so I'm not sure what my problem is. I miss seeing the daily toons, for instance, and other graphics. Can you help me? - Thanks in advance - Dave Franklin

I suggest we celebrate April 7th as Merrick Garland Day from now on!

OK, we can't make it an official holiday, but we can agree to post the idea to social media, to contact like-minded friends and family members to have a get-together or go out to eat, or just hang out and have a few beers or a couple glasses of wine, or a soft drink and snacks, and tell the story of President Obama and Merrick Garland and the jerks who ignored the Constitution. And end the story with "and that's how Republican Senators got to be known as (and you fill in whatever insulting term makes you happy." And let's toast Judge Garland in perpetuity.

Anyone confused about why they're going after Susan Rice?

It seems to me that it's almost automatic. She's an intelligent, Black woman who held high office in the previous administration and did an excellent job. For some White people - especially those who support the current administration - this is an affront to everything they believe, and, consequently, she makes the perfect scapegoat for their inability to explain away Trump's idiotic position that President Obama surveilled him and his cronies in Trump Tower.

As a Caucasian myself, I find their unfounded accusations to be disgusting and pitiful.

What do you think?
