I was raised not just a Democrat but as a naturally rebellious Irishman: authority was always to be questioned and usually resisted. Republicans were the establishment, the lowest and most callous people on earth. Yet I have to admit I was not quite clear why. Pro-union was enough in my family to vote Blue all the way. It was entrenched in my thinking from a young age that Republicans were the dupes of the rich.

When I came back from oversea's service in 1968, I was more tempered in attitude and thinking but still not really knowledgeable about the differences in parties. It did not concern me that much; I thought both sides were a little over the top, though tended to distrust the establishment (i.e., Republicans) more. In Manhattan simply on a job search, I came upon an antiwar march. I had just finished lunch and was looking for a trash bin to toss my empty bottle of soda. Then I heard a police officer yell, "Drop it!" When I quickly scanned the surrounding ground, I realized he was talking to me: he had his hand on his gun and was staring right at me. What? Then I realized his concern was the empty soda bottle. "Drop it!" he shouted. I probably should not have laughed. He was quickly joined by two other officers who seemed eager to slay their first commie. "Putting it down, putting it down," I said with one hand raised.

That was the end of the confrontation, but as I walked away a guy came up to me with a big smile, put out his hand, and said, "Welcome to the home of the free." I smiled. He introduced himself and said he was with the Quaker Marshall Program to maintain non-violence at demonstrations. Somehow he sensed that I was a recently returned Vet. I took their training and since that day until a few years ago, I was pretty much neutral about the American political landscape. Both parties, to me, did not represent the best interest of its citizenry. The emergence of the Tea Party and shameless racial attacks on the president changed that. Republicans were after divisiveness: that was abundantly clear. Fear and hate were their constant message. As Conservative media grew, so did the gulf between the parties and the American people. What to do?

I never knew politics and politicians were so corrupt, so openly corrupt. They blatantly lie everyday and their policies routinely hurt the middle class, poor, elderly, and young. This is done mostly by the Right that find fiscal concerns more important than people. Fiscal concerns are important, of course, but not above human life and dignity. It appears this is of little or no thought to them. End Meals On Wheels, after-school food programs, both of which the GOP lied and said their were no stats either helped, and you have a convert opposed to the heart against the lying, deceiving, conniving GOP.

Curious!!!! We have a situation!!!! Are you a plagiarizer or are you just forgetful? You used this very story as the 'Humanator' except that a young Quaker woman took the can out of your hand, you fell in love, got married and lived happily ever after!!! I like that version better. I'm assuming that it is very possible that this story is actually true since two of your characters have told it. Again, Rumitoid, you never fail to amaze!!!

You are not too smart you see this is NOT the section for political conversation BUT that is exactly what you have posted about. Seems that you make serious errors all the time and this is just another are beyond hope. WAY beyond.....(orbit)...hello distant galaxy....

Yes he really made an error this time! He forgot that he used this Quaker story when he was the Humanator character! The only difference is that a lady took the soda can out of his hand and they got married and lived happier ever after. You can find this on the introduction section the second time he introduced the 'Humanator' begging to be welcomed. This is just another character of Rumitoid's.

We went to the museum and found it to be very emotional for both of us. My Dad was in the Navy during the war stationed in the Philippine Islands and Jack's Dad was in the 101st Airborne and made 37 battle jumps as a medic. He had a Navaho Indian as a body guard that was with him from the beginning of the war. He was killed by a sniper while standing in the chow line. He died in Big Jack's arms. He never got over it! How I admire and appreciate all of our military, I cannot express it enough! GOD bless them one and all! K O on the pictures. I think it is time for me to get to work and finish packing and cleaning house. Gotta leave my house clean just in case the 'clean house police' inspect it while I'm gone. LOL. Have a wonderful weekend. It sounds like this may be your last chance to make snow angels. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

It's apparent that you enjoy traveling and visiting different places, Me too! We used to do a lot more of it when we were younger. I always told our family that Jack and I would have been good Gypsies! We went to Hawaii and the smaller islands many years ago and loved it. Never did a cruise, it was tooo hard for this West Texan to get that far from land 😱

TexaCan~~~Hello you wonderful soul and light of graciousness..I have really missed you and just wanted to say, don't be gone so far, please~~~

Thank You for your kind words...I am sure you feel much the same way..Men are better at some things as women are better at other things..We should let each be who they are in the gender world...How they are with you or I is what is important...
Just because one gender can't do what the other gender does or thinks does not make either superior it makes them equals...

Anyway, its a topic that never ends because we're too caught up in proving our point when there really is not a point other than we're different...
Self respect and self esteem is all you need..The rest just comes.....

Are you well?? I hope you had the most joyest of holiday's since I last saw you here..Im going to be watching for other posts so I may reply~~`hugsssss to you...

I agree Completely!! Thank God for those wonderful differences. I am wonderfully anxious to wiggle my toes in the sand and water. Holidays were full of joy and love as I know yours were too. Hugs back attsha...... I'll let you know how my 'date' went!

I don't claim to know anything but will say I'm on a constant quest to learn as much as I can..

Men and women learn from each other and are opposites for a reason.. I don't want to know everything about you, I prefer the challenge of learning about you each day..

Just as I will not share everything with you because I want you to want to know me better each day..

I don't care to know how to do all the things you do, I'm content knowing you can and when needed you will get it done.. Just as I know you don't care to know the things I know unless and until you need my help...I will never know all you do nor will you know all I do, Thank the good Lord, hallelujah, let's just keep learning..

We are different for a reason and I happen to love our respective roles...

I'm looking at the situation and I'm think Trump is in way over his head on this one and needs advice. How about everyone list what they would do as Commander in Chief and maybe, just maybe, someone in the intelligence circles will see this and promote some options for the president. I'll start.

First, get some cruise missile subs near Syria. Tell CIA to get some high priority targets for them so they can hit the top level command and control centers of the Syrian military. Hopefully, we have a carrier group in the region for the subs to hide under while on station. We don't need troops or jets and stuff to put one down on Assad. If we show we can take him at a moments notice and we prove we have the nerve to do it with a couple missile hits, we've got leverage.

Second, ask CIA about assets in Syria that can encourage a military coup so we don't have to lift a finger and still get a regime change. Can we do this? Can we initiate the operation? What about Syrian military assets who are willing to entertain the assassination option? I'm sure there are military personnel who have family in Allepo who got hurt in the bombing. Also, see if assets in Syria can convince Assad to step down peacefully and back channel with Putin to give asylum if he leaves now. No matter what, we want him out.

Third, publicly put it to Putin to either take action against Assad since the Russian military is already in Syria, or to publicly step aside and let someone else deal with him. The "give asylum to Assad" works with the back away option. Either way, we want our cruise missile option if we need to send a warning message.

Fourth, encourage the UN coalition to assemble a peace keeping force to intervene in the Syrian conflict in any event.

I don't know what I would have done, but I know what we ARE doing! 50 missiles have been launched at a base in Syria where their chemical weapons are believed to be stored!!!!! May God protect our forces in Syria and Iraq!!!

The Sneeze

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-two students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With their rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt.

Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and Moms freely brushed away tears.

This class would NOT pray during the commencements, not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it.

The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the ruling. They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families.
The speeches were nice, but they were routine until the final speech received a standing ovation.

A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then, it happened.

All 92 students, every single one of them, suddenly SNEEZED !!!!

The student on stage simply looked at the audience and said,


And he walked off the stage...
The audience exploded into applause. This graduating class had found a unique way to invoke God's blessing on their future with or without the court's approval.

Isn't this a wonderful story? Pass it on to all your friends.........and


This is a true story; it happened at the University of Maryland .

Oh, how I wish THIS one would take off and FILL the whole Country!!

I always knew deep down YOU LOVE ME! It will be our secret! Love and kisses poo!

You got me! I do love (agape) you. I hate those that enjoy and/or cause pain physical or emotional and I don't think that is you! I am one of those bible thumping, gun toting conservatives, but that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate and even enjoy liberals. I have always enjoyed your humor and your baby pictures. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
