34 things that aught concern us all!

Some of you may agree with, and some of you may not - but eitherway, food for thought!
Some of the 34 - may incite return vitriol, your reaction is our measure!

"12. That we need to use paper ballots and have our ballots counted only by Girl Scouts and nuns;"

"21. That our Congress is bought and paid for by huge corporations -- and so is our Presidency and Supreme Court;"

Chelsea Manning is a "super hero"? Brother Trypcil, that shit isn't worth the electricity it took to type it.

What a sack of horse manure, did you have multiple windows open at once and accidentally think you were posting on DU? NOT food for thought, not if it were the last morsel on the planet...

Distinctly dismissive omc', you might want to address that!
Brother Jar, I agree it's not the best list and that Ms Manning(sic), and Assange are heros - shame that many don't think that but our gubments never do - Truths are the enemy of the state, now aren't they?
I am sure many don't agree with some on the list, that would be too much to expect - but what triggers the most, might be just what needs to be considered, reasoned!(omcH' excepted)

That since the "war" on Vietnam, Americans have become so increasingly afraid of their own shadows that 22,000 gun owners showed up at a rally in Virginia recently, many of them clutching ugly brutal military-grade weapons as if their very lives depended on possessing these monsters -- just to prove how very very afraid that they actually are
Byte me, bitch!

Upon further reflection, I see no reason to change my initial analysis...
Your stock continues to sink, however...

Food for thought?? Liberal trash to me. Trust a female to count votes?

Daddy told me ," Don't trust anything that can bleed for 5 days and don't die!"

Now that is food for thought.

Well we haven't got in this mess because we are all thinkers.

Joe Rogan had a former CIA official on his podcast and he stated that the only way to make an election "Hack" proof is to do everything on paper ballots in person. Electronic machines can fail or have software corruptions in them as well as if those machines are connected to a network they can be exposed to external hacking and manipulation. His recommendation was that we sht can all of the new "modern" forms of voting such as electronic machines and mail in ballots and stick with the old paper ballot in a voting booth format.

If it makes sense, it is illegal. Just saying.

There is much wrong with the world, the West etc... and failing to talk, converse and figure out that much that ails the left - can also be an ail of the right - frustration.
When we rely on a few ardently corrupt politicians to do our dirty work, when all we can do is bitch and shout at each other - then we've either failed the Founding Fathers, or we are lazy! We can blame a few or we can take responsibility - difficult as it maybe! We cannot rely on a few to right the wrong, we must all 'clean up' the figurative turds, on our figurative streets! - - Right OMCHamlin, or wrong?
