What is Your Favourite Quotation?
This is probably a good time to share the messages that can bring hope, joy or inspiration — a line from a book, a short verse of poetry, words from a speech or song lyrics you love. You can never know who might find comfort in those words, as well as you..

Wait — did liberals actually think they'd remove Trump from office?
Via: Nerm_L • 62 comments • 2 weeks ago
Democrats have become too conventional. The obvious political strategy has been to stir up public outrage, run a few polls, and declare political victory. That is in keeping with the political conventional wisdom of viewing the President as a heroic figure whose heroic status can be tarnished by throwing mud. That has been the political status quo since forever. Democrats have been...

Yes, the choice is very easy. If you don't have a job, the only choice is to not buy at all, no matter what the price savings are.

The Iowa Caucus is only 3 weeks away. The democratic party is still torn between the moderate elements who seek somebody who can beat Donald Trump and the more radical wing which simply wants to vote for those candidates who share their world view. It's an old story for the party. Moderate democrats force themselves to be pragmatic and the extremists simply vote for those whom they fall in...

An important message for my old friends on here from Randy
By: Randy • 29 comments • 2 weeks ago
I just want my old friends on here to know that my wife of 26 years, Joan Luise, passed away peacefully in her sleep last night of heart disease after being home for the past 5 months on Hospice Care.
Jan 12 3:36pm@9I'm so sorry to hear about that Randy.
It always seems to work that way. Even when you know that it's imminent, it's still a surprise and a shock. Best of good wishes to you.
Living A Nightmare----How Long Can We Survive As A Rogue Nation
By: DocPhil • 170 comments • 2 weeks ago
All rhetoric aside, this nation is in trouble. We seem to be inextricably divided into two opposing factions that can not or will not reach common ground on almost any issue. 51% of the nation believes that this President and his administration are rogue or illegal actors on both the international and national stage, while a fairly stable 44% of the population believes wholeheartedly that the...

Correct. Which term is applied depends on which side the speaker is on. If you're on the American side, Solemani was a terrorist. If you're on the Iranian side, he was a freedom fighter....
Humor: Can This Teenager Use a Rotary Phone?
Via: Krishna • 28 comments • 3 weeks ago
The internet has made so many things obsolete, like maps, phone books, and rotary phones. Ellen was curious to see how young people would function without the world wide web, so she challenged a 17-year-old to use all three... creating hilarious results.
Jan 07 2:53pm@5Trying to put in an ampersand might be a bit difficult. I noticed that the phone she's using is, although a rotary model, made of newer materials. With an original rotary phone, her biggest...
Bloomberg blasts Sanders' 'outrageous' claim that Soleimani strike was an 'assassination'
Via: KDMichigan • 166 comments • 2 weeks ago
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg balked at fellow 2020 candidate and Sen. Bernie Sanders' suggestion that President Trump carried out an "assassination" when he ordered a lethal strike on Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. When asked about the descriptor, Bloomberg said: "If he was talking about killing the general ... this is a guy who had an awful amount of American blood on his...
