Why Republicans are Republicans and Democrats are Democrats

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 15:51

A well written post that explains clearly the difference between Republicans and Democrat party, and the reasons why in general terms. It is an easy to understand informative post and I recommend it highly. I also agree that a huge majority of democrats have become what I call corporate democrats. I stole the term from the TYT Network news shows. I am a progressive democrat and support that model for elections and will vote from progressive democrats over corporate ones. There are several new organizations making a large difference in the political landscape. I look at the progressives that recently won in so many local elections. Thanks Steve for an informative read. Hugs

Class Warfare Blog

When this country was created “of the people, by the people, and for the people,” it was created by a fairly elite group of men. They made sure that a stable society and government was provided for by making sure that Indians, slaves, and women did not get to vote, nor did poorish men. You needed land to qualify to vote, meaning you had to be an elite or near-elite member of society to cast a ballot.

The Founders felt that the very best people to run the government were people just like themselves: well-educated, wealthy men who had the leisure time to reflect on the issues of the day and didn’t have to devote every waking moment to find food and shelter.

They were worried about the affect of wealth on their new government, so this reinforced their suitability for leadership as they were already wealthy and would, therefore…

I started reading not sure where I would be taken on this reading journey. Turns out it was time well spent. New thoughts expressed in older settings gives rise to things to ponder on. I like it. Be well. Hugs

Cyranny's cove

It was an almost nameless little town, in an almost unknown country-side area. With little houses planted, like trees, far enough away from each other, that two neighbours could have lived their whole life without knowing they even existed, if one had no curiousity.

She lived in the home her father had built from his bare hands. Not a big house, but comfortable enough for her own needs. Especially since her parents had left her, a couple of years back. She had grown up learning to take care of their little farm, and the few animals and small piece of land that were her family’s legacy sufficed to make her life a good one.

One day, as she was sweeping the broom on the hardwood kitchen floor, someone knocked at her door. She went to open it, curious to see who this might be, and a man stood on her…

Thoughts on Symbols …

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 15:35

Well said. I have long wondered at the mindset that takes the symbol to be more important than the thing it represents. Great post. Thanks.

Filosofa's Word

Symbols … A symbol is a mark, sign, or word that indicates, signifies, or is understood as representing an idea, object, or relationship. Symbols allow people to go beyond what is known or seen by creating linkages between otherwise very different concepts and experiences.

I was struck by an interview between Fox television hosts and Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski regarding, of all things, upside-down Christmas trees. For some reason, the hosts seemed to feel that Lewandowski’s opinion was of the utmost importance on this topic …

upside tree

“There’s a new fad, Corey, we’ve got to get your insight on this. The upside-down Christmas tree. You can buy it for a cool grand at Target. …Americans are burning to know what Corey Lewandowski thinks of the implications of such a fad.”Fox & Friends host, Pete Hegseth.  (Seriously???  I am an American and I don’t care a whit!)

Trump’s supporters now have what they want, writes @adamserwer: a president who justifies the rage they feel toward those they hate and fear, while reassuring them that their anger is nothing to be ashamed of. https://t.co/nnzPbhc5TM

The USA police state.

Filed under: My Life and Rants, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 07:15

The changes at the justice department are hurting the poor and non-white the most.  While whites and nonwhites use weed at about the same rate, black and brown people are arrested, charges, prosecuted, and sentenced to much harsher sentences.  In a lot of states a felony denies the person the right to vote.  Think on that.   IF you are a white nationalist, a white supremacist, what better way to slow down and stop progress of rights for other races.    It takes away all their power to achieve political gains.   The USA is in a very dangerous place internally right now.  It is tipping to a point that will take decades to rebuild the rights of its people.    Mass incarceration, sweeping arrests, an authoritative government are not a free society and it is a very dangerous slide to more oppression we are on.  Over the years the reversal of this trend is slow and hard fought.  But the deepening of an authoritative government gives more power to the upper echelon and they in turn try to push for more of it.  Look what is happening in Turkey for example.  A once free and secular country is quickly becoming a dictatorship build on religion.   FOr those who push religion as the answer here, think of what theocracies of the world have become, the harm they have done to the people.  A free people needs a free press.  We don’t have that.  A free people must be able to laugh at the political leaders, yet in our own senate  a woman was arrested for doing just that.  They tried twice to convict her.   Is this the country you want, afraid to speak out for fear of punishment?   Hugs

Notes from a small dog: The dotted line…

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 10:17

I have readers and viewers all over the world it seems. This is a great post and clearly show the feelings of animals and the reasons we humans bond with them. There is no need to be cruel, even for animals we wouldn’t normally consider, like food animals. They live also which means they feel. Be well. Hugs

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

I am an animal. Therefore, I am not sentient…

I have no emotions.

I do not feel happiness…

… joy…

… or fear.

I have no curiosity, because I am not a sentient being.

I have no understanding of the finer emotions, like gentleness, or sharing.

No understanding of wonder, excitement…

…or hope.

I do not suffer when I am ill.

I need no comforting…

I cannot laugh…

…or be bored…

…and I have no sense of humour.

I feel no guilt…because I am not conscious of wrongdoing…

…and I cannot feel love.

My two-legs disagrees.

Under the current EU laws, animal sentience, and the existence of their feelings, is recognised and must be taken into full account as new laws and rulings are passed.

The UK government have quietly voted to exclude animal sentience from the laws being passed to define our nation as we leave the EU. Although…

We all get wrapped up in our own business, needs, and the hectic pace of life. Here is a great post on the true things we should be willing to slow down for. Our sanity, health, and inner peace Hugs

Wait! Frantically I chased the bus trying to catch the driver’s attention. Brakes screeched and exhaust puffed as he threw open the door and impatiently waved me in. Out of breath from my unexpected sprint, I leaped onto the bus which jerked roughly into motion. Why does everything seem so urgent?

Ear shattering noises blasting from my alarm clock that morning had startled me into reality. Abusing the snooze button meant ultimately springing from bed in a hasty rush. After a speedy shower I dressed in a hurry and dashed out of my front door to see the bus pulling away.

And from now on I should hurry! I nearly missed it!

Anxiety at work as constant emails popped up. Between fast-paced phone calls I zipped out for a quick lunch and realized in a panic that I was late to a meeting. Choking down a sandwich while running, I…

Net Neutrality 11 22 2017

Filed under: Economics, My Life and Rants, News, Political, Questions, You Tube — Scottie @ 14:04

Editorial note:     In the post below I made the point of how much money you can save by buying your own Modem / Router.    Either as a single unit or a seperate units.    However I misspoke in one way.   In listening to the play back I realized I said …”from the cable company”.    That is a mistake please do not try to do that.   Buy them from an office store , Amazon, or other store where they people understand what they are talking about.   I apologize for the slip up.    I do not use a script as some people do, I speak from the heart as I would to a friend sitting beside me.  That will sometimes cause errors.   Be well.  Hugs

Protect net neutrality against pure open corruption. Hugs
