This amazing cartoon was published the day after Carrie Fisher passed on.

Today I’m waiting on the artist’s rendition of Debbie Reynolds’ passing.

I has a sad!

2016: A ROUGH YEAR

Unless anyone’s residence is under a rock (not for 365 days), we all know how rough this year has been.

As years come to an end, there’s usually the perennial hope that the new one will bring good tidings and better things than the one that just ended.

However, it’s my personal belief that, we are in for a rougher ride in 2017 and beyond.

I really hope that I’m proven so wrong.

These lost lives can’t be replaced.

They will live in history and in the memory of our generation.

Dignity and self-respect can’t be replaced either and it will be much harder to recover.

Something to think about …. “Being a proud Liberal …. “!!


liberal

~~December 21, 2016~~ 

ANOTHER LABEL TO PROUDLY WEAR

I always thought that we were here on this Earth to advance in the different stages that we encountered.

I think we are ALL interconnected and. as such, it’s our bound duty to help one another.

No one should stay behind.

No one should be left alone.

What I care about is what the person is really inside.

The feelings, the beliefs, the nature.

I strongly believe in doing the right thing.

Do unto others as you would like done unto you.

If that makes me a LIBERAL, then I’m proud to be one.

Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality. Whereas classical liberalism emphasizes the role of liberty, social liberalism stresses the importance of equality.

Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programs such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights, democratic societies, secular governments, gender equality, and international cooperation.

CELL PHONE ADDICTION

~Signs and Symptoms of Cell Phone Addiction~

Although cell phone addiction is not yet listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5), research has compared it to gambling addiction, which has clearer diagnostic criteria and is included in the DSM-5.

At least 4 of the following signs and symptoms are thought to comprise criteria for cell phone addiction, and the problematic cell phone overuse must cause significant harm in the individual’s life:

A need to use the cell phone more and more often in order to achieve the same desired effect.
Persistent failed attempts to use cell phone less often.
Preoccupation with smartphone use.
Turns to cell phone when experiencing unwanted feelings such as anxiety or depression.
Excessive use characterized by loss of sense of time.
Has put a relationship or job at risk due to excessive cell phone use.
Tolerance.

Need for newest cell phone, more applications, or increased use.
Withdrawal, when cell phone or network is unreachable.

Anger
Tension
Depression
Irritability
Restlessness

Crashing a College Party …. It’s On Us …. Important Mission …. “!!

IT’S ON US

It’s On Us is an education based campaign focusing on sexual assault awareness and prevention on college campuses.

It’s On Us advocates for a cultural shift surrounding sexual assault, by identifying what sexual assault is and situations in which it is beneficial to step in and prevent sexual assault from happening.

~Wikipedia~

To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.

To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.

To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.

To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

Vice President Joe Biden and Adam Devine Crashed a College Party for an Important Mission

Vice President Joe Biden has a bit of a reputation as a fun-loving party animal.

So when Adam Devine needed a crime-fighting partner for an undercover operation at a college party, he knew just who to call.

A new video from Funny or Die features Biden and Devine crashing frat parties to help get the word out about a serious issue that affects college kids everywhere—sexual assault on campus, an issue that Biden has been vocal about, particularly in the wake of Stanford sexual assault case.

Biden and Devine drop the act to share their important message, though, reminding viewers how they can help prevent sexual assault.

The video is a collaboration between the White House-launched It’s On Us campaign and Funny or Die, the people behind Between Two Ferns.

Thoughts for today, #422 …. “Gaming system …. gaming welfare …. Not the Same …. “!!


gaming

~~October 4, 2016~~ 

TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS

Plenty of times I’ve heard … ‘those people on welfare are taking advantage of the system’.

They shouldn’t be on it. I’m paying for it with the  taxes I pay.

Some have applauded Trump’s taking advantage, for his personal benefit, of the current tax code.

That’s what makes him smart.

That’s what makes him a genius!

That’s what makes him a great businessman.

Yet, remember, we also paid for his gaming the system with the taxes we pay.

Hence, no complaining about the welfare use if Trump’s ‘gaming of the system’ is OK with some.

These two options ARE NOT inclusive.

It’s comparing  ‘apples to oranges’.

The idiom, comparing apples and oranges, refers to the apparent differences between items which are popularly thought to be incomparable or incommensurable, such as apples and oranges.

~Gaming the System~

Gaming the system (also referred to as gaming the rules, bending the rules, abusing the system, cheating the system, milking the system, playing the system, or working the system) can be defined as using the rules and procedures meant to protect a system in order, instead, to manipulate the system for a desired outcome …

~Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia~

~Social Welfare System Definition~

A social welfare system provides assistance to needy individuals and families.

The types and amount of welfare available to individuals and families vary depending on the country, state or region.

Something to think about …. Debunked Myth …. Undocumented immigrants pay more taxes than Trump …. “!!


dttax

~~October 4, 2016~~ 

DEBUNKED MYTH 

I have so-called ‘friends’ and some family members who decry the fact that those immigrants ‘are taking our resources and services we pay with our taxes without contributing to the pot.

I’ve always tried to educate them that this is not a fact.

Here is information to help with education of those who may feel that way.

They pay billions in US taxes.

So much more than one of the presidential candidates in this cycle.

‘Undocumented’ Immigrants Pay Billions in Taxes

By Andrew Soergel

Economy Reporter

March 1, 2016

Immigrants illegally in the U.S. collectively contribute nearly $12 billion each year to state and local tax coffers, according to a new report that challenges recent election cycle rhetoric.
The study from the Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy found that immigrants in the U.S. without legal permission kick in their billions in the form of income, property, sales or excise taxes.

There were roughly 11 million immigrants estimated to be in the U.S. illegally as of 2013, according to the report. And each and every state collects at least a few million dollars from tax payments made by such immigrants each year, ranging from Montana’s $2.2 million to California’s $3.2 billion.

“Regardless of the politically contentious nature of immigration reform, the data show undocumented immigrants greatly contribute to our nation’s economy, not just in labor but also with tax dollars,” Meg Wiehe, the institute’s state tax policy director, said in a statement.

The Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy‘s study found that individuals lacking legal permission to be in the U.S. consistently receive lower wages than their immigrant counterparts who are in the country legally, which inherently limits how much they pay in terms of income taxes.

The report estimates the average income of an “undocumented family” is a little more than $30,000, well below the country’s median household income of around $54,000, according to the Census Bureau.

Thoughts for today, #418 …. “Clinton vs. Trump …. Most-Watched Presidential Debate Ever …. “!

~~September 39, 2016~~ 

CLINTON-TRUMP SHOWDOWN

The Most-Watched Presidential Debate Ever

An estimated 84 million people watched Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in their first debate Monday, September 26, according to TV ratings data from Nielsen, making it the most-watched debate ever.

These figures top the ratings for the 1980 debate between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, when just under 81 million people tuned in.

As The Associated Press reports,

“No debate since then had exceeded 70 million viewers.”

Nielsen’s numbers include 13 television networks.

They don’t account for viewers who watched the debate online – and NPR’s media correspondent David Folkenflik has been crunching those numbers.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

When you add viewers who used other ‘channels’, the number increases to 100 million.

Other options included Twitter, YouTube and varied social media.

“If you are interested enough to watch, I hope you’re interested enough to vote.”

Ellen DeGeneres

I agree!

Go vote!
