In this article Senator Lott is quoted saying something that I think show a major misunderstanding of the democratic process, and perhaps points a finger at what is wrong with a number of our politicians.

From the article:
It is "a real blow to Republicans in Congress generally and to leadership," said former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, a Republican.

More of the blame sits with the rank-and-file, Lott said. "The problem in Washington today is not lack of leadership. The problem is lack of followership."

Sorry, but that IS what democracy is about. Not blind followership, but about standing for what you believe and if others agree, then they stand with you. It is about being responsible.

Or should be.

Nuff said.

We all need to be on our current Congress to remind them that.. Religion is not something that Our Forefathers embraced as a cause to support in the formation and continuation of our Great Nation..
There are far too many in our Political Structure now who think that God is here to save the Day and some even think that Donald Trump is the new Messiah Saint and Savior.
Our Writers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, rejected the premise that religion play a part.
Currently in the United States.. there are Right-Wing factions
who espouse that ONLY Religion is the Answer..
I want to remind you all that.. This country belongs to ALL Americans of ALL religions and Creeds and colors.
They are not yet in Control of our Nation, but they have made huge inroads in trying to take it over to reform us into THEIR version of America..
Do NOT let them take control..
of ANY of it...
Recall and Replace these people whose only goal it is to Take everything away from the People and give it to the Billionaire Bastards who already can;t and don't spend, what they have..
and for sure.. don't allow the Religious Right to have control of our Nation PLEASE!

And I am pretty sure that there will be strong opposition from a different cultural circle.
There are bylaws that say something to the effect that you should not cause "distress" by stripping down.

My take : if it distresses you, don't look. Along the lines if you think gay people shouldn't wed, don't marry one.

I have always thought that saying "Well, next time is a chance to do better" and then help someone to figure out how to do better, is the "healthier" way. I am uncomfortable with lowering the bar so that nobody has to strain to get over it.

I remember reading about school classes where the bar was kept high- the good students were challenged and the students that weren't as good still did better than in the class where everything was kept easy so the not so good students wouldn't feel bad.
So in one case everyone did worse. The smart kids because they were bored, the not so good got along. In the other case, smart kids did well, and the not so good were challenged to do better - and did.

I am not a proponent of the lowest common denominator.

Your high self-esteem does not make you a better artist; it makes you a delusional one...

QUOTE;As the months became years, the self-love movement spread. Defendants in drug trials were rewarded with special key chains for appearing in court, while those who completed treatment were given applause and doughnuts. Children were awarded sports trophies just for turning up; a Massachusetts school district ordered children in gym classes to skip without actual ropes lest they suffer the self-esteem catastrophe of tripping.
QUOTE:The credibility of Vasco’s task force turned largely on a single fact: that, in 1988, the esteemed professors of the University of California had analysed the data and confirmed his hunch. The only problem was, they hadn’t. When I tracked down one renegade task force member, he described what happened as “a fucking lie”. And Vasco was behind it.
QUOTE: “The news most consistently reported,” he read out loud, “is that the association between self-esteem and its expected consequences are mixed, insignificant or absent.”
QUOTE: How did he rate the academics’ research? “As you read the book,” he said, “it’s a bunch of scholarly gobbledegook.”
What was Mecca’s response when the data didn’t say what he wanted? “I didn’t care,” he said. “I thought it was beyond science. It was a leap of faith. And I think only a blind idiot wouldn’t believe that self-esteem isn’t central to one’s character and health and vitality.”___I have always thought that saying "Well, next time is a chance to do better" and then help someone to figure out how to do better, is the "healthier" way.

We think the FBI’s use of Best Buy Geek Squad employees to search people’s computers without a warrant threatens to circumvent people’s constitutional rights.

It was "worth" $380,000. And was allowed to keep it by paying $550,000. What is wrong with this picture?

"Then, last year, Finley learned that his community garden, reportedly worth $380,000, was going to be seized by high-profile developers, Strategic Acquisitions. So he launched a crowdfunding campaign and reached out to a number of influencers in the food and entertainment industries. Bette Midler, Nell Newman, John Foraker, president of Annie’s, and nearly 3,000 others ponied up the $550,000 that Strategic Acquisitions demanded in lieu of taking possession and shutting the garden down."

t/h +Valkyrie

My friend Jeanna has been going through some really hard times lately. She is disabled and has been living on disability income (SSDI, only $800 a month) alone for several years. She was only able to get by on that because she inherited her parents' home way out in the country, outside a small town with just one store. On that minimal budget, there were things she had to let go of, including the homeowner's insurance policy.

A few weeks ago, her house burned down to the ground. Completely gone, and there are no outbuildings. She's been sleeping in her car and under a tarp and in a tent, and sharing the space with her horse Macy and her rescue cats and their new kittens. Since that time, her disability benefits came up for their first review since she got them more than a decade ago and were terminated. She's appealing the decision, but in the meantime has no income at all.

She's going to have to rebuild or replace some sort of shelter and get power back to the property. Then she'll have to sort out a longer-term plan. In the meantime, she needs food; gasoline to get to the doctor, store, and benefits office (which gets costly when almost everything is more than 50 miles away); prescription co-pays, and various other things to keep her going.

If you want to learn more about her story, read the Trial by Fire collection on +J Stone​​​'s profile here https://plus.google.com/collection/ERZ-GE

If you can give anything to help her financially, please do. Even $5 is a meal or three and makes a difference. Also, please boost the signal and reshare this here and on your other social media.

I think I'm going to be sick.

If you want to really scare an engineer, have one of the last-line backups -- the ones that nobody normal even thinks about, the ones that are meant to make sure the system fails safe if something unimaginably apocalyptic happens -- fail.

The seed vault isn't the best backup against a global apocalypse; honestly, if that happens, then the odds of us being able to use this effectively aren't great either. But it is a backup against, for example, some rapidly-spreading plant disease causing a collapse of a major food crop. These backups are what we'd need to start engineering resistant strains if contamination happened globally faster than we could catch it. That's a nontrivial failure mode of our food system, and that's why this vault is really important to have.

It was designed to be self-operating, maintained at the required -18C primarily by the cold temperatures of Svalbard. An isolated station that would let the people who worry about our food supply sleep at night. But the system never expected this scale of climate change; and with the permafrost melting, water flooded in and froze in the entryway. Thank all the gods, the vault itself remained unbreached, but the system can no longer be considered to be stable in its own right; it's being manned 24/7 until we can figure out how to stabilize it.

And it makes me happily proud to be the owner of a number of Lodge cast iron pieces.

I use it too. Easy-peasy. And as they say, use your own words, they count. General copied satatemants aren't counted.
So write it like a letter. Or postcard.

I just joined resistbot.

Resistbot turns your text messages into daily letters to Congress— in the simplest and easiest way possible.

It asks you your name and zip code, and then makes it easy to send text messages directly to your elected representatives.

...only certain ways of speaking up really count. We've confirmed that Resistbot messages are received and read by actual Congressional staffers.

Resistbot starts simple, with just your two Senators. Over time, it will ask you for more information so it can do a better job representing you, including in the House of Representatives.

One thing: don't copy and paste messages, which staffers treat as junk. Only unique messages count. ___I use it too. Easy-peasy. And as they say, use your own words, they count. General copied satatemants aren't counted.
