...AND the Republican, Conservative, Right-Wingers should stop claiming that the two are the same.
Liberalism is not Socialism, and never will be. There is a great gulf fixed. It is not a gulf of method, it is a gulf of principle... Socialism seeks to pull down wealth; Liberalism seeks to raise up poverty. Socialism would destroy private interests; Liberalism would preserve private interests in the only way in which they can be safely and justly preserved, namely by reconciling them with public right. Socialism would kill enterprise; Liberalism would rescue enterprise from the trammels of privilege and preference... Socialism exalts the rule; Liberalism exalts the man. Socialism attacks capital; Liberalism attacks monopoly.

I never will understand someone trying to control another person. I figure I have enough on my plate running my own life. Of course if the way someone runs their life impedes the way I choose to run mine, I put distance between them and me. But I don't want to control them. I just want them to go away.
T-Rump's style isn't to go away - - if we are ones who are opposed to his lying, cheating, stealing methods, his style is to get in our faces with more of what he does...
And what, pray tell, are these greedy people going... (
It's really abysmal that they want so much at the expense of being off the backs of other people, all the time as they're saying that the othes who do all the work are freeloaders or slackers and aren't deserving. It's money just for the sake of money, power and control. Ugly behavior...
Yes, just exactly on the day banks posted their highest earnings ever.
They want more, More, I tell you, MUCH MORE !!!
AND they'll do anything they can get by with to get MORE, too !!!!!
Don't forget the drive toward privatizing governme... (
Oh Diane - - yes, that's exactly what they're trying to do, and the purpose, which is no excuse, is to line their own pockets - - something the staunch Repugs do to great excess in spite of ongoing damage to the American citizenry. GREED that they try to camouflage as benefit and altruism.
QUICK! - - I need an injection of some antiemetic Reglan to stop this queasy feeling of nausea and impending vomiting - - I'm getting a headache; I wonder if concurrent Tylenol is contraindicated.
Truly, this is joke of a dolt prez, his sycophant administration and a complacent, cooperating right-wing Congress just isn't funny anymore.
Wow reading this page I scrolled down and suddenly without reason this popped up. I am using iPad iOS 11.3.1.
I was just trying to read down....but also after I added the reply then chose the file then went back to add attachment there was weird letters where my comment was. I had to delete this info and retype.
A GOOD IDEA TO EVER
CLICK WITHIN OR ON, OR TO RESPOND/REPLY TO, ANY
UNSOLICITED AD OR POP-UP !!!
If there's something that attracts your interest or attention and you feel driven to take it further, it's better to locate the name of the company on the ad/pop-up, then go to your own browser search engine, find the company that way and contact them through your browser portal.
If the site is unsafe or has viruses, you have a better chance of your browser alerting you to that. When you click to enter directly, chances are very good that you won't get any warnings that there may be problems with the site.
In other words, once you enter that way, the damage may already be done.
On or within the ad/pop-up, f you can't find any reference to a company you could search for, that is a sure sign that they are intentionally obscuring the information, and a perfect reason to stay away.
If USPS increased the parcel rates that it charges Amazon then Amazon in turn would increase shipping charges to their customers or find an alternate shipper. Who ultimately pays---the customer. Just as with his proposed tariffs. Who pays---the end user. He is an idiot.
Yes, he is, and he’s quickly undoing the recovery under [a]obama, but this is pretty typical of republicans. They certainly don’t understand macroeconomics.
This is exactly so, my friends. The trumpster and most Repugs in general want to pass thru every cost possible - - it's the totally misguided Atlas Shrugged/John Galt/Ayn Rand business model. Not only do they believe that people should pay directlt for what they get (or NOT GET IT), they believe that a philosophy such as that will enrich THEM, which is REALLY why they do it, because they don't give a GoodGodDamn about anybody but themselves.
Whether by blatant choice or from conveniently wearing blinders, they and theirs don't see the bigger picture - - that there is a useful purpose and benefit to everyone when companies bang out commerce agreements and contract for lower shipping rates based on higher volume. BIG DUH !!! It lowers shipping costs for the consumer (in this case Amazon) - - ultimately the end consumer (the purchaser) - - yet brings in a wealth of revenue to the shipping service (the USPS in this discussion).
However, from the perspective of the Repub-Lee-CONs and Trumple-thin-skin, it either reduces, or cuts them out completely, from a big fat profit margin - - and since they see it as not good for THEM, they twist it and claim that it's not good for the people or the country. It's really business sabotage IMO. A form of mass hypnosis and monopolistic price control - - the exact opposite of what they claim they're doing.
and I must say I have "loved and lost" a few also.
But I'd definitely rather they'd move on before I do so no one else must take the responsibility of rehoming/placement.
yeh! Look at me.I love a dog!
What a coincidence - - so do I !!!
I can't say I let many folk upset me..............."forgive them. they know not what they say" IYKWIM
Or what they DO...Yes, I DO KWYM !!!
never been a fan of the cardboard, porridge and mud shades. Give me colour!
My two away van was a very visible white, but my next previous one was metallic dark sapphire blue, and the current one is dark metallic silver.
I wouldn't intentionally choose this color again, as it blends in too easily with the road and does not stand out at dusk - - I like my car to be quite a bit more visible to other drivers...
I love that Plum;purple they are using this season.
I'm not sure whether it started this year or last year, but they are certainly making many cars in some very vibrant colors: electric blue, dark lime green, etc etc - - I'd rather have colorful yarn !!!
my opinion is that ARAN patterns look best on thin people. No way would I wear such sweaters.
I agree - - they do tend to bulk one up...
That's why the throws are so lovely - - we don't wear them, thank goodness !!!
