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
Brian Wolfe22,328I haven't shared a circle in a long time. Maybe too long.Anyways.. Here is the circle that my browser spends the most time on.   Just in case I become a petulant child and walk away (not that I'm planning on doing so , just in case.)2013-08-22 05:36:251941335
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 Olson14,742Leaders of Google+ in #progressive   #politics  Add this circle for a well vetted collection of thought leaders that post a high degree of quality political content.

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
Rob Salzman11,508This is a circle of the 77 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.    2012-09-28 16:52:5777319

The main purpose of this series of Shared Circles is to expose new G+ users that are active engagers, but you may find even first generation ones in them.If you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post.

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

Craig Froehle4,629467 Plussers Well Worth FollowingSome curated recommendations to make your Tuesday a bit more interesting. I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718

Gideon Rosenblatt8,047Big Technology CircleThis is a big, honking circle of people who are interested in or working on technology. It's a mix of people interested in different types of technologies, so it's not super fine-tuned.

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.

My thoughts on Bill Cosby. I waited for the dust to settle and think long and hard about it. I don't know any of these women who claimed they were raped several years ago. My question is why now? Bill Cosby is a senile old man who shows signs of possible alzheimer's. A possible answer was they feared for their careers if they accused him back then and now with their careers behind them they can speak up.

This is why bringing up black on black crime is absurd. No one would dare do the same with white on white crimes.

The fact is crimes are generally crimes of proximity. The victim is usually the same race as the perpetrator because of this.

There are just to many, even if some of them are lying.

THE WOMEN WHO SAY THEY WERE ATTACKED BY COSBY


Andrea Constand - A Temple University employee, she claimed in 2006 that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in his Philadelphia-area mansion two years earlier. Cosby eventually settled this suit out of court as the prosecution said they had 13 Jane Does who would testify Cosby did the same to them in the past.

Barbara Bowman - Bowman told MailOnline that Cosby raped and drugged her back in 1985 when she was a 17-year-old aspiring actress. Bowman was one of the 13 Jane Does in the 2006 trial against Cosby.

Joan Tarshis - Tarshis claimed that she was just 19-years-old when Cosby drugged and raped her twice in Hollywood back in 1969 while she was working as a writer for him.

Janice Dickinson - The supermodel  (pictured right) said in an interview that Cosby asked her to come to Lake Tahoe and talk about a television role in 1982, but ended up drugging and raping her.

Tamara Green - Green, who first came forward in 2005 told MailOnline that she was an aspiring actress in the 1970s when Cosby gave her pills and pretended to care for her while she had the flu, but instead sexually assaulted her.

Therese Serignese - Also one of the 13 Jane Does, she says she was 19 when Cosby drugged and raped her in Las Vegas after one of his shows.

Louisa Moritz - She accused Cosby of sexual assault, saying he once forced her into oral sex, backstage at The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1971, and implied he would further her career if she went through with it.

Linda Joy Traitz - She said earlier this week that she was just 19 when Cosby drove her out to a beach and tried to get her to take pills to relax, before becoming 'sexually aggressive'. Traitz, of Hallandale Beach, Florida, has been charged in the past with trafficking pills. Cosby's attorney, Marty Singer, is trying to use Traitz's past to discredit her claims against his client.

Beth Ferrier - Beth Ferrier claims she had relationship with Cosby in the mid-1980s. She claims that she awoke in her car with her clothes in disarray and not remembering what had happened. Ferrier has claimed that he drugged her coffee.

Carla Ferrigno - The wife of Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno, claims Cosby tried to sexually assault her during a gathering at his house in 1967. What's more, Cosby allegedly tried to use a friend to help court Ferrigno, and allegedly made his move on the former Playboy Bunny just moments after his own wife, Camille, left the room.

Angela Leslie - The former model-actress claims that Cosby forced her to masturbate him in his Vegas hotel suite after giving her a strong drink in 1992.

Renita Chainey Hill - The 47-year-old mother-of-three who met Cosby when she was offered a role on Picture Pages in Pittsburgh claimed he would fly her to different cities around the United States and drug her during a four-year relationship.

Kristina Ruehli - A New Hampshire grandmother-of-eight, now 71, claims Cosby invited her back to his house for 'party'. She arrived and no one was there. Ruehli alleges that he drugged two bourbons he poured her and she came to when he was on top of her, shirtless. 

Victoria Valentino - The former Playboy playmate claims Cosby drugged her and a friend, tried to rape her friend then violated her instead in a Hollywood apartment after dinner.

Jewel Allison - The former model accused Cosby of drugging her wine and making her feel his genitals before kissing her during a dinner at his home in the late Eighties.

Michelle Hurd: The 47-year-old actress, best known for her roles on Law & Order: SVU and Gossip Girl, revealed she was a stand-in on the set of The Cosby Show when Cosby started acting inappropriately around her. In a Facebook post this weekend, she described being touched in ways she did not like and being asked to eat lunch with him in his dressing room. Then, things became too much for Hurd. 'I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened,' she says. 'At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, "No, I’ll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened'''.

Joyce Emmons: The former comedy club manager claims she woke up naked next to a friend of Bill Cosby after the comedian gave her a sedative when she complained of a migraine. Joyce Emmons told TMZ that the comedian slipped her Quaalude when she was in his Las Vegas hotel suite in the 1970s. She claims Cosby drugged her but has not accused him of sexual assault.

Lachele Covington: The 20-year-old actress, who’d been an extra on the TV show Cosby, filed a police report in March 2000 against the star, accusing him of making an unwelcome sexual advance. According to The New York Post, after dinner and drinks at his home, he massaged her then 'guided her hand towards his sweatpants'. Cosby denied the claim and no charges were filed.

A Proposal for Law Enforcement
On top of every police car should be a 360-degree video camera that gets activated whenever the officer turns on the lights & sirens or exits the vehicle. The video and audio that gets recorded should be sent automatically to a cloud server administered by the courts, NOT by the police department itself. All video should be retained for 30 days, after which, if there is no event that makes the video relevant, it can be erased and written over.

Also, a body camera is to be worn by every police officer that is not under the control, operation, or modification by the officer. Said cameras should be recording video whenever the officer is engaged in any police action, including pursuit, interrogation, interviews, and so on. All video should be retained under the same policy as above.

Said cameras should be recording video whenever the officer is engaged in any police action, including pursuit, interrogation, interviews, and so on. All video should be retained under the same policy as above.

Also, every officer must complete 30 hours of conflict management training and testing every 4 years and have a psychological fitness-for-duty evaluation every 12 months (or upon any traumatic event on- or off-duty). The results of these evaluations should be subject to reasonable public information requests.

Finally, all reviews of officer behavior and investigations into officer actions must be public record within 7 days of the event unless it is to be submitted as part of an active court case. Once the court case is resolved, the complete details of the review must be released to the public within 30 days. All reviews and investigations must include at least one person from outside the police department and local government.

If all this seems onerous, try living with armored personnel carriers rolling down your quiet, neighborhood streets and a non-trivial percentage of cops regularly turning routine traffic stops into state-sanctioned shootings and murders. With power comes accountability; the people grant you the power to enforce laws, and we demand you be accountable to us when exercising that power.___

Until a majority of white people stand beside our black brothers and sisters, injustices like what happened in #ferguson  will continue to occur. We must stop denying the reality faced by the majority of our black citizens. We must stop denying our privilege and use it to demand equality for all people.

I was ready to accept the Grand Jury findings and move on, but this disturbs me to no end. If true...

This is why people do not trust the Grand Jury findings in Ferguson (And certain Police departments).

The trust issue is all I'm talking about here.

This happens in too many instances and I'll grant that at times races doesn't matter. The Blue Line prevails. Sure, it's a difficult job, but I've never heard of anyone being drafted into it. Because of the extraordinary powers and authority they are given, they must be held to s higher standard of behavior. Like racism, disrespect for the Police is a learned behavior. I don't believe that anyone is born with a preconceived belief about anyone else.

It's about black people being redlined by homeowners' insurance companies instead of by realtors, unable to get out of the ghetto.

It's about black Americans who can't live the American dream because the closest "real job" is forty miles away from their home.

It's about black children gunned down on the street by white cops and left laying there for four hours in the summer heat, drying.

It's about a black boy being labeled a "thug" for being a black boy.

It's about my black students and their black families.

It's about my black friends and their black loved ones.

It's about white privilege and black despair - the privilege to be outraged instead of frightened by this news.

It's about my black male students who live with this terror every single day because of your white racist excuses.

It's about my white friend who wouldn't stand up to you and tell you to stop being racist in his comment thread, but who told me that it was rude to say I'd blocked you.

It's about our world. This is the world we live in, this world we made and maintain.

History just repeats itself, and repeats itself again.

So don't tell me it's not about race. The only reason you don't see it is because you are not looking."

Because I am white, I have the privilege of being sad that it happened, instead of scared that it will happen to me.

Because I am white, I have the privilege of being ashamed that it happened, instead of terrified that it will happen to me.

Black men in this country between the ages of 14 and 22 have a 10 to 30 times higher chance of being shot to death than any other group. Chew on that for a while. Think about the fact that if you're white, you aren't nearly as much in danger as black men are.

Being appalled, outraged, sad and ashamed is infinitely preferable to (not to mention much safer than) being afraid, frightened, scared and terrified. I am aware of how unfair it is that I get to be appalled, outraged, sad and ashamed while black men and their loved ones have to be afraid, frightened, scared and terrified.

If you are white, these are the privileges you have, too. Admit it and own it. And then do something about it.

Every time this happens we should be saying "Never again." Never again another Mike Brown. Never again another Trayvon Martin. Never again another Tamir Rice. Never again another Eric Garner.

But it keeps happening, and you know why? Because white people can't be bothered to make the system include people who are not white. That's why.

I hope that this time, we will finally be shaken out of our privileged complacency.

And if you are white, and you do not feel at least appalled, outraged, sad and ashamed, then you're part of the problem."___

Very well said!

I still have a dream. I'm very proud of my parents, that they taught us to believe that we are all created equal. That the color of your skin has nothing to do with the content of your character.

There is so much hurt and hate still dividing our nation. Generations later, the old guard of hate still holds its power. And the victims of that power still suffer systemic abuse. From Generation X down to the Millennials, we are actively working to make the change our parents wanted us to. But we must also recognize that the system is broken. That those in power won't willingly accept that the abuse must stop.

I sincerely wish those rioting over the Ferguson decision would stop. But I can't fault them, because the system has failed them to the point of breaking. Over and over.

In 1992, I was a soldier with the 7th ID(L) at Ft Ord. We were deployed to walk the streets of LA during the Rodney King Riots. It was the first time I really opened my eyes and saw what was destroyed. Not so much buildings and businesses, but the very idea and hope that the American Dream was real. Because it isn't. Not for poor people, not for people of color, not for anyone the system crushes under its abusive thumb.

I'm not really sure what to say to anyone else about what to do. Except that I promise to speak out, every single time I see someone being treated differently. To have my cell camera at the ready to record anything and everything. To try and represent the dream I still have. ___Very well said!

This NPR shows why Ferguson residents are so upset with their court system, and it's not just because of racist cops. The whole system is racist. With 32,000 arrests, mostly for minor traffic violations, and a population of 21,000, there has been an average of 1.5 arrests per person. But African-Americans not only absorb 80 per cent of the arrests, they also are poorer, so they are hit harder by the fines. Many go to jail for failure to meet a court appearance or other offenses stemming from the illegal arrests.

The resultant fines, arrests, and jail time inflicted on Ferguson residents invites comparison with totalitarian regimes like China and Fascist Spain. When nearly every person in the city of Ferguson is afflicted by police arrest policy, the police state is already here.

Suppose you are white and reading this. If you lived in a community where you and your neighbors are constantly arrested, fined, and jailed, for minor traffic violations, what would you do? Wouldn't you hold non-violent protests, like the ones in Ferguson? When the police break up your non-violent protests with tear gas, rubber bullets, and night-sticks, wouldn't you be called "animals" in the local press?

Just asking. The African-Americans don't need to imagine this. Many of them are living it right now.___

I mean that in the literal sense of the term: "difficult or impossible to believe." But I want to be clear here. I'm not saying Wilson is lying. I'm not saying his testimony is false. I am saying that the events, as he describes them, are simply bizarre. His story is difficult to believe. endquote

I mean that in the literal sense of the term: "difficult or impossible to believe." But I want to be clear here. I'm not saying Wilson is lying. I'm not saying his testimony is false. I am saying that the events, as he describes them, are simply bizarre. His story is difficult to believe. endquote

I know, we're all shocked. 

But as a store owner I want to ask..... 

What would happen in Williamsburgh if the police had shot a Hasidim teenager six times and left him uncovered and bleeding in the street for four hours? 

But first lets ask.....

Why would they wait until night time to give the verdict like it was a fucking State of the Union address or something? 

Oh, I forgot..... 

If you give the verdict at noon, the mid-day news and nightly news can completely cover it. On top of that, anything that happens, happens in broad daylight. Even though Ferguson is a no-fly zone, CNN had coverage from a rooftop. 

Tomorrow's nightly news is going to feature a looted and burned out liquor store, followed by a goat that thinks a cow is it's mother.

We really, don't want to know the truth, because we can't handle the truth.

As they used to say..... 

"Burn, Baby, Burn 

Lay it all to waste and ruin. If they won't treat you properly, don't let them have nice things.

Then, maybe the next time, a cop will think twice before shooting a fleeing suspect in the back multiple times. Or at least , if he doesn't, he will face the consequences. 

They will never ever respect you because they are hateful, prideful morons. No amount of civil disobedience and quiet dignity will ever make them see you as anything but savage thugs.

But you can,, make them afraid to piss you off."

Its not right, but that is what people are thinking on the ground. 

And the cycle, continues.....again and again and again.....

"Riot is the language of the unheard.". 
-Dr. Martin Luther King  

Maybe, the Ferguson Police should not have left that uncovered body rotting in the hot Missouri sun for hours as everyone looked on. 

 Neighbors in Canfield Green poured from their apartments and stared at 18-year-old Michael Brown, unarmed, facedown in the street, shot dead by a Ferguson police officer. 

Ask, yourself  why the body remained on the street for hours and then things might become a bit clearer. 

What would happen in Williamsburgh if the police had shot a Hasidim teenager six times and left him uncovered and bleeding in the street for four hours? 

 Six rounds hit Brown’s body  The street sloped slightly. Brown’s blood, which otherwise might have pooled underneath him, ran in a wide ribbon several feet down the hill, As he rotted in the sun. 

When the  paramedic finally arrived  walked into the crime scene, which was already roped off with yellow police tape, kneeled down, checked Brown’s radial pulse, then his carotid pulse, circled the body once, kneeled down again, and wiped his own brow. 

The police never checked his pulse or offered medical assistance. They just put up yellow police tape. 

 “They shot a black man, and they left his body in the street to let you all know this could be you. To set an example, that’s how I see it.” 
- Ferguson resident Alexis Torregrossa  

After that there was revelation after revelation about wrong doings with that tiny all white Missouri police force that did not have a clue about community relations. 

There is a reason the Missouri Highway Patrol had to step in and that the Ferguson Police Department had to be disbanded

I am not a lawyer, but it would seem that since it was a grand jury and not a trial we can and should demand that a special prosecutor be appointed and a new grand jury be called. It would not be double jeopardy.

This is why bringing up black on black crime is absurd. No one would dare do the same with white on white crimes.

The fact is crimes are generally crimes of proximity. The victim is usually the same race as the perpetrator because of this.

Immigration and the Shoddy Pretense of Journalism that is CNN

It’s funny how the mainstream media can pretend to report on the immigration issue by detailing Republican complaints aboutPresident Obama’s executive order on immigration – questioning its constitutionality, for example – without once mentioning that other presidents have issued executive orders on immigration.

My thoughts on Bill Cosby. I waited for the dust to settle and think long and hard about it. I don't know any of these women who claimed they were raped several years ago. My question is why now? Bill Cosby is a senile old man who shows signs of possible alzheimer's. A possible answer was they feared for their careers if they accused him back then and now with their careers behind them they can speak up.

He fought against the Washington State gun safety ballot initiative, I-594. His children were raised around guns. His life was all about guns. His child was shot in the face while playing with a gun with another toddler.
