Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503

Ole Olson20,256Top Circlers on the GooglesphereI've been sharing one and only one circle per day lately, picking the most interesting ones I've found. My goal is to share a diverse selection of circles, some based on topics like the environment, or interests like scifi, or well designed share circles. Probably about time I share one of my OWN circles for a change!Below is my recently updated Top Circles circle. These folks have a good track record of forging excellent share circles. Add them immediately.  #HashtagZoo  (concept courtesy of +Peter Edenist) #Circles   #Sharedcircles   #PublicCircles   #topcircles   #circlequeen   #circlemaster   #SharingIsCaring  2013-08-15 08:12:489515820

Ole Olson13,134My Top Circler CircleSpecial thanks to these people on G+ who have shared me in one of their circles. I don't say it very often, but I really do appreciate it.  As I went over the list on +CircleCount last night, I realized some of these folks had vanished from my own circles, which happens on G+ occasionally, but that has been rectified. These are all fine folks with an eclectic mix of quality posts. Add this circle for some outstanding engagers.   And for others, sculpting quality circles and SHARING them is a very important part to G+. Don't share a circle every day, but do it once in a while to help others find who is important to you on here. Dirk TalamascaAndrey MashnichJack C CrawfordCircleCountEuro MaestroSusanne RamharterMark SDaniel HarringtonPaul MeulmanRandy HilarskiJUSTIN MATTHEW (shouting!)Gideon RosenblattTrever McGheeArmando LiossMike ClancyJohn HardyRob SalzmanJason Hurtado DanielsAlister MacintyreTina ValeJohn KelldenBob MulhollandDaniel SandsteinJari HuomoGabriel FitzpatrickGiovanni TotaroRae OuztsDaniele VegaMelissa WalkerKimberly CrawleyShaun WheldenRichard Greenjohn sawyerWes ForsterMarko Shiva PavlovicWataru TengaDavid BeeAtheismJohn DoeMelisa BeliwiczErik BarrettAmy McLeodAaron StanleyJeffrey HarringtonJason MDaniel VoisinBill SewardAndrew HartwellJoys Maclaurinmatt vovakiss #CircleShare   #SharedCircles   #SharedPublicCircles   #CircleOfTheDay   #Engagers  2013-04-23 13:27:015013615

Charles Cortes (Chuckster)2,842The Best Of 2012 – Chuck’s “The Amazing Circle” 100 Favorite GPlussers You Should Have Circled2012 has been mostly a good year for me, especially with Google+ being my social home and watching as my following grow thru out the year. I have met lots of awesome people and enjoyed some really cool upgrades to Google+. Now that the year is ending and a new one is about to start I wanted to share one of my favorite circles I call The Amazing Circle that is chock full of awesomeness. These are my top 100 favorite people to follow as they each have something that makes them special be it the awesome posts they share or the excellent comments they make. Everything from beautiful images, funny jokes and gifs, interesting articles on technology, politics and current events and also great opinions on just about any topic. These people have earned my respect even when we sometimes don’t agree. So hurry up and circle these GPlussers and watch your stream come to life. #mybest2012  2012-12-27 19:58:2410012137

Scott Jacobs (PonderingChimp)0First shared circle. Figured it was about time. But the delay has only made it worth the wait. The majority of these people probably have something in common with me. Many (most) are liberals, human rights activists, definitely anti-corporation, anti-government invasion of privacy, against in-your-face religion or religious oppression, a few are fellow atheists, sports fans, music lovers, artists and art lovers, fellow Chicagoans, some I have chatted with, all I have commented with or +1'd a post by, some are cynical pessimistic assholes (for fun), most share very inspirational posts, and more than a few have/can/will post NSFW material. I truly hope I didn't miss anyone who should be in this circle, if I did, it was just an oversight. Thanks to all of you, for making my G+ experience the best place to hang out on the internets!!2012-11-11 05:50:511501116

Rob Salzman12,186This is a circle of the 89 people who are my primary stream - these people are the ones I read first.  They are intensely good.  Fair warning - they mostly share my lefty type values.    2012-10-08 04:43:26904210
Charles Cortes (Chuckster)2,274The Amazing Circle - Chock full of AwesomenessI kinda noticed that either I am really weird since I have near 5000 people in my circles or most people are just not finding quality people and pages to add but I felt it necessary that in order to get the best experience on Google+ you gotta add more people.Now granted 5000 people posting to my stream is a bit extreme and maybe a few out there like me could handle such a huge amount of information constantly streaming on my browser, but that is what makes Google+ so special. It's being able to look and all of a sudden come across that one or two posts that you feel lucky you didn't miss. With that said I thought I would share a circle of what I consider to be people and pages worthy of your time. I call it the The Amazing  Circle because everyone in it is amazing.This circle is a mix of people who post quick frequently about all kinds of topics ranging from politics from every side, tech reviews, random everyday questions about life and strange and interesting stuff you may not know is on the Internet for your viewing pleasure. I also added several Google+ pages I felt were worth having because they provide excellent information, updates and sometimes really funny stuff.So please have fun picking and choosing who you wanna follow but honestly I would suggest just adding them all and watch your stream move to the beat of awesome information and opinions. Enjoy.  2012-10-03 18:35:3764405

David Bee0This is a Circle that I compiled of G+ users around the world who support the re-election of Barack Obama as President of the U.S.  While Obama has certainly not been perfect, we believe that he has been working diligently to improve the U.S. and bring the world's communities closer together.  In the face of unprecedented unwillingness on the part of the Republicans in Congress to support his efforts, he has achieved many positive goals. http://pleasecutthecrap.typepad.com/main/what-has-obama-done-since-january-20-2009.htmlWe feel that a Romney presidency would bring us back to the George W. Bush days of reckless wars, less bank and Wall Street regulations, and a dwindling social safety net.Add a comment to this post if you wish to join, and I'll gladly add you in.  If your aim is to find fault with Obama, this Circle isn't for you. Go create your own Romney Circle if you wish. If your name was added to this Circle in error, please let me know and I will promptly remove you.This circle is dedicated to a world with less conflict, less hunger and more cooperation between nations.please share widely #obama   #obama2012  2012-07-30 01:32:0014929818

Armando Lioss7,358I have seen how trendy circle sharing has become and it seems to be a great social network tool.I've made a compilation of the most active users in my circles to share with the G+ community, this includes guys and gals who actively share information with me and share/comment my posts with their circles.I recommend, if you don’t have these people in your circles yet, to add them. They will surely make your user experience more dynamic and entertaining.NOTE: I can only go so far back in my stream, before my laptop becomes insufferable slow, I know I have missed hundreds of equally great people in my circles, hopefully I’ll have them included next time I share my active circle…2012-03-03 12:09:01251424

h/t +andrei tourubaroff 

I'm the first one to decry people who park in disabled spots without plates/placards, but part of the reason you have those if you need them is not all disabilities are visible.

Apparently, not all genders are visible as veterans either.  http://www.wncn.com/story/27885839/female-veteran-shamed-for-parking-in-veterans-only-spot  And if you read the comments, it's full of women saying how this has happened to them or when they try to get veteran plates in their state, they meet with resistance because they are women.

Seems to me that we need multiple solutions here:

1) If a state issues veteran plates, that should be automatic and at little or no charge to actual vets, aligned with however the state does disabled plates (which also ought to be little or no charge although I have heard about some states making them expensive).

And if a state doesn't issue said plates, nobody ought to be making any assumptions based on who parks in these spots because you can't see what a veteran looks like.

2) If you've ever assumed in any circumstance that a given person is not a veteran (or any profession) because of their gender, check your bias and smarten up.  This goes extra for professions like armed services where people put their lives on the line for others.


I may be a peacenik but I show veterans a hell of a lot more respect than whomever wrote this note.___h/t +andrei tourubaroff

We want to believe. A story is published on the internet that fits our impression of what is going on. We don't need any proof, we know it must be so because. We progressives/liberals must take a hard and long look at things. Just because we believe is not enough. We can get caught up in conspiracy theories just because it fits our agenda as easily as the right wing nut jobs. Look, think, seek facts.

Thank you +Charles Gilmore 


Wow!

"As public conversations about blackness demonstrate, though, we are able to think systemically in the service of blaming blacks for their own disadvantage (and sometimes to explain how white racism is caused by rap). We know how to mobilize this kind of thinking about culture and economics to diagnose black pathology and to freely generalize about cultures of crime, and shiftlessness, and inadequate commitment to family. But when it comes to white misconduct, systemic thinking goes out the window. We seem to lose the capacity to ask how a culture of white supremacy might shape a white fraternity brother’s decision to sing, on camera, about how he’d rather see a black man killed than admit him into his social circle. In short, we know how to think systemically best when it serves the interests of white supremacy.

As a culture, we are desperate to see white racism as a string of isolated incidents, but determined to see black misconduct as proof of pathology. One violent black man represents a movement, but a group of white men singing racism represent only themselves and later get to claim that they’re the real victims here. It is the definition of a double standard. By entertaining that standard, we ensure that blackness in America continues to be understood as inherently wrong, and that no matter what song you sing, being white means being right. After all, why apologize, why change, why think about how your culture really works, if you believe that you have never done anything wrong?"___Thank you +Charles Gilmore

Thanks +Yonatan Zunger Great analysis.

I'm watching the Israeli election results with bated breath. So far, exit polls show the election extremely close, with a slight edge towards Netanyahu's attempt to form a new coalition government -- but it's close. This campaign has been marked by a new kind of polarization, one fostered rather actively by Avigdor Lieberman and his Israel Beiteinu party, and has spread among more of the right wing -- overt and rather bloodthirsty racism appears to now be the name of the game.

The diagram below is the best summary I've seen of the exit polling. Even if you follow Israeli politics, it may be very hard to figure out who the players in it are, because the parties seem to change from one election to the next, so for those who are interested, here's a short summary. (NB: The parties here are ordered not based on a single, linear political spectrum -- there are two major axes in Israel, left-right and secular-religious -- but based on their likelihood to ever form a coalition with one another.)

Starting from the left:

The three Arab parties decided to merge and run together as the Joint List, and they seem pretty likely to end up at 13 seats. These represent the Israeli Arab population.

Meretz ("Vigor") is a left-wing secular party, advocating a two-state solution, social justice, human rights, and environmentalism.

The biggest center-left party, Labor, and the second-biggest, Hatnuah, joined up to run together as the Zionist Union. This would be the center of any left-wing coalition. Labor supports having a peace process, and Hatnuah is also particularly interested in integrating the Arab and Haredi (ultra-orthodox) communities more deeply into society.

Yesh Atid ("There is a future") is a secular party that popped almost out of nowhere a few years ago. Their main interest is in checking the influence of the ultra-orthodox, and ending their various special exemptions and religious privileges. They generally align with the left bloc on other issues.

Kulanu ("All of us") is a center-right secular party. (It and Hatnuah formed out of the fission of the Kadima party a few years ago, which in turn formed out of the fusion of various left- and right-wing elements after both of the major center-left and -right parties collapsed in flames) They're focused on economic issues, especially keeping the cost of living under control and breaking up monopolies; on strategic issues, they're fairly security-oriented but also believe in a two-state solution.

UTJ is where things start to get weird. They're an ultra-orthodox party that I've posted about before, in the context of their campaign during the last election against geometry. (https://plus.google.com/+YonatanZunger/posts/QinuQ5yTzgP) They are also, in general, against any sort of system of public education apart from religious education, and think that we shouldn't have all of these public works and instead invest more in religious education. They have no opinion on matters of peace and security at all; these things involve secular people and non-Jews, so they really don't care. If you think of them as an isolationist and non-violent version of the Taliban, you'll basically get the idea.

Shas is another religious party, which likewise doesn't care much about peace and such issues. They have only two issues they really care about -- religion and corruption -- and they're strongly in favor of both. Their votes are basically for sale to whichever coalition will pay them off appropriately, and as a result they end up in nearly every coalition. Unfortunately, part of their price includes continuing control over the Interior Ministry, which means things like marriage law being determined by their rabbis. They represent a somewhat mystically-oriented branch of Judaism which is very popular among parts of the Sephardic working class, and so their campaigns tend to involve people taking oaths and receiving talismans and so on. Israeli politics is surreal.

Likud is the big secular center-right party, and the party of the current PM, Netanyahu. Historically, the party has been on the "security" side of the peace/security tension, and is a bit more free-market oriented than Labor, in those few elections where economic issues matter. (But there's no radical difference here; their economic policies are pretty similar to those of Kulanu or Yesh Atid) However, thanks to their very close relationship with Israel Beiteinu and similar groups, they've recently gone in, shall we say, a more interesting direction, with Netanyahu making a statement earlier today about keeping all those Arabs from voting too much and making sure the state stays Jewish.

Netanyahu is known as being profoundly opportunist, and willing to do anything and hold any platform he needs in order to get power. Racism sells to voters he's unsure about, so: more racism. He has also been explaining, in the past few weeks, how an international Zionist conspiracy is trying to unseat him. (No, really. cf: https://plus.google.com/+AndreasSchou/posts/auDniwSz6Ui)

(Incidentally, this is tied to the parties you don't see on this chart, Yahad ("Together") and Otzma Yehudit ("Jewish Strength"). The OY party is described as "neo-Kahanist," with Meir Kahane being the assassinated former leader of the Kach party, a party which was basically kicked out of the country for being a terrorist organization. The Kach platform can be summarized as "genocide." They are not nice people. These guys are the equivalent of European political parties that don't try to hide their Nazi affiliations much at all. They're not on this chart because, thank all the gods, they didn't get enough votes to pass the 3.25% threshold to get any seats. But these are the "stray votes to pick up" that many parties on the farther right are interested in)

And now we get to Israel Beiteinu. ("Israel is our homeland") If you're familiar with European far-right secular political parties, you can basically guess what these guys are like; think of an Israeli version of UKIP, at best. However, in the run-up to the election they've decided to dispense with the subtlety, calling for "disloyal" Arab citizens to be beheaded. (https://plus.google.com/+AndreasSchou/posts/VkZp2D1ShLM) The exact definition of "disloyal" was left as an exercise for the listener. This party's voting base is basically entirely working-class Russian immigrants who feel generally disenfranchised and disconnected from broader society, and who are quite familiar with what we politely call "nationalist" political parties.

Finally, we have Habayit Hayehudi. ("Jewish Home") They are a right-wing, religious party which believes that Jews are divinely commanded to maintain control over the entire land of Israel. Settlement-building is a divine commandment for them, and that's what many of them go off and do, legally or otherwise.

So you can see why some of these parties might not want to make a coalition with one another.

Basically, what a lot of it is boiling down to is this. The Zionist Union will try to form a center-left bloc, which will be committed to a two-state solution, to broader integration of the Arab population, and to human rights. They're going to need Yesh Atid, which means they're going to also be anti-clerical. Simultaneously, Likud is going to try to form a center-right bloc, with a kind of nationalism / racism as party platform, and Netanyahu stated firmly and publicly yesterday that there will be no two-state solution or real negotiations so long as he is in power. Shas and UTJ will join this coalition, if nothing else because Yesh Atid will join the other one.

And that leaves Kulanu in the middle, and its party head, Moshe Kahlon, as kingmakers. The party's policies could get along with either coalition; while historically, Kulanu is basically a break-off of Likud, Likud has also shifted since then, so Kulanu's allegiance isn't a slam-dunk. The two large party leaders -- Netanyahu (aka Bibi) for Likud, Herzog (aka Bugi) for Labor -- will be up very late tonight negotiating and offering deals.

Another way to read this graph: The Joint List, Meretz, and the Zionist Union are all fairly together on subjects of peace and human rights, which is ultimately their primary issue. Likewise, Likud, Israel Beiteinu, and Jewish Home are all fairly together on subjects of security and Jewish supremacy, which are their primary issues. Yesh Atid, UTJ, and Shas are all primarily about the religious/secular divide; YA lines up enough with the left-wing coalition on other things that they'll join that, which means that UTJ and Shas will join the right wing.

Oddsmakers are giving a slight edge to the right wing as of now, but it's still fairly far up in the air. But the difference between the two putative coalitions is stark and has gotten starker in the past few days: the left bloc being committed to a peace process, a two-state solution, and integration of Arab, Orthodox, and secular Jewish citizens into a single polity, and the right bloc being committed to increased settlements, no giving up of land, and to rather thoroughly disenfranchising Arabs in particular.

Those of you who occasionally talk about wanting multi-party government in the US: watching this sort of thing in action, and just how much power fairly small parties end up with, is exactly why I think that would be a terrible idea.

And now, having offended nearly everybody who has read this far, I'll go back to watching the news.___Thanks +Yonatan Zunger Great analysis.

My thoughts on the TPP.

It is going to happen whether the US is involved or not. There are competing agreements that the US are not part of.  We can either be involved and get the best deals to protect workers and the environment or we can drop out and get nothing.

There is also a second front to understand these trade deals. In the past the Industrialized West controlled global trade. American workers benefited in much the same way the White privilege benefits   white people. The rest of the world have used government subsidies and/or exploited labor to gain traction on the global trade market.
