- 6 Word Bio:
My life would shock most people. It is a little known fact that there are quite a number of those on the fringes who may not ever see relief. I am that one you never met, in that we are kept separate by way of societal demands that the poor remain silent, biddable, childlike nonentities without a say as to our care or how it's to be provided.

Despite this personal signi… Read full post »
I do not like certain parts of this movie, but many good points are made within its story line.
It is old fashioned a lot of the time, but then it is old, so for anyone watching it, please try and keep that in mind. I don't like war pictures as… Read full post »
Is this image really OK with you?
Its wording reads "Mohammed: a star is born!"
If so, then would you please share with me why that is?

They'd been driving in snow past nightfall for nearly twelve hours already. The highway lay placidly under the tires of the elderly sedan as it rolled on through the night. They'd had to fasten the chains on after the first four hours… Read full post »
I found much to consider in my search today of sources regarding peace movements supported and/or organized/funded by various religions.

Over the years, I've come to value this place for a safe haven and a way to learn about what's been going on in our world.
It's important to me that we stay connected. Life is short. Let's stay connected.
There is a little, niggling problem, though, that starts whenever I… Read full post »
This is how I've rephrased Tink's instructions to me via PM last week that enabled me to embed videos here again.
This brief post is actually mainly a comment I left to tgwithin, whose struggles with video echo my own prior to learning first from skypixie0, and lastly Tinkerertink69.

Perhaps it is possible that any anger we or others feel can be built upon until there is a pile-on effect.
Perhaps it is true that, when some people feel cornered, their deep seated instincts to kill or be killed, down or be downed, can bring out untamed wording. (Who's… Read full post »

"If you fling it, they will come."
Okay. It's official.
In rereading some old posts here on Open in order to get to the bottom of all the feuding , I came across several references to the term, "flinging feces."
