About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Names have been changed, to protect the innocent...

It is still Democratic Underground. Oh sure, it is a little different, you can serve or not serve on a jury, it is set up a little different,
but it is still us, and it is still good. Some names have been changed to protect the innocent..(from Dragnet, 1950s)
But, it is still the best clearing house for all kinds of news, and etc.
... Ok, that is enuf. enuf said..

It could be a landslide for Obama and Democrats

1. Obama Got us Out of Iraq
2. Republicans indeed protect the One Percent..It takes time for that one to get through. IT GETS THROUGH..
3. Obama tried to tax Millionaires
4. Employment has picked up, when Bush left things were getting much worse
5. Obama got Bin Laden
6. Reform of Health Insurance Helps People. More people insured..especially pre-existing conditions gone..(that matters to most)
7. Republican attempt to change Social Security and Medicare backfires...THAT GETS THOUGH TOO.
8. Republican attempt to define Obama as "big spender" fails.
9. Average worker finally realizes that All Republicans are against his interest
10. Republican freek show of primaries, debates, and candidates turns off huge majority of voters. Obama seems stable and
competent in comparison..

Bottom Line

Landslide for Democrats across the nation....

Hey. Lots of gloom and doom, for a moment, maybe, let's think otherwise...won't hurt???

"Rudy" Inspiration Charged with Securities Fraud


'Rudy' inspiration charged with securities fraud

By msnbc.com news services,,

Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, who gained fame as the underdog football player at the University of Notre Dame and inspired the 1993 movie "Rudy," was sued Friday by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Ruettiger and 12 others were charged with running a scheme to deceive investors into buying stock in Ruettiger's sports drink company.

The SEC lawsuit called it "a classic pump-and-dump scheme involving a penny stock called Rudy Nutrition" that occured between February and September 2008 and generated more than $11 million in illicit profits.

"Investors were lured into the scheme by Mr. Ruettiger's well-known, feel-good story but found themselves in a situation that did not have a happy ending," SEC enforcement lawyer Scott Friestad said in a statement.

Places I Have and Have NOT Been. ... J #6

from a friend named Gary.....

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots.
Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to
be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my
friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not
too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to
visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the
adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the
stimuli I can get!

And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not.

People keep telling me I'm in Denial but I'm positive I've never been
there before!

I have been in Deepshit many times; the older I get, the easier it is
to get there.

On A Plane Flight to Vegas......Joke #5

Taking his seat on a plane one day, Robert was overjoyed to see a beautiful woman making her way toward the seat next to him. Eager to get her talking, he asked, "So where are you flying to today?"

"I'm heading for the annual Nymphomaniac Convention in Las Vegas," she said with a smile.

Robert was even happier. A beautiful woman, right next to him on the plane, and she was going to a Nymphomaniac Convention!

"What will you do at the convention?" he asked, trying not to show his excitement.

"I try to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality," she explained.

"What myths are those?" he asked.

"Well, one myth says African-American males are the most well-endowed, when actually it is Native American men who are most likely to possess this trait. Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, but research shows that the best lovers are Jewish men." Suddenly she became embarrassed. "I'm sorry. I know this topic must sound a little strange. I don't even know your name!"

The man held out his hand to her. "It's Tonto. Tonto Goldstein."

Wise Old Native American Story....Joke #3....Last one for today...thank you

Recently an old Indian chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking a Ceremonial pipe and eyeing two U. S. Government officials sent by the President to interview him. 'Chief Two Eagles' asked one official, 'You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done.' The Chief nodded in agreement. The official continued, 'Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?'

The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute and then calmly replied, 'When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, women did all work, medicine man free, Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing, all night having sex.' Then the chief leaned back and smiled. 'Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.'

I will never forget this about so called, "Conservatives"..

It was four or five years ago, we were having a heated discussion on the old Ed Shultz board. The topic was universal
health insurance, and we were arguing how much better it would be to have that kind of health insurance, you know,
how much less expensive and more inclusive,quicker service, etc.... This was when King George the Fool and Liar was President..
.....Any way... one post after another..and finally one so called Conservative, supporter of Bush said words to this effect........
......"I just don't want to pay for anyone elses health insurance..Why should I pay their costs?"...

That was it, it was all about paying less taxes, simple greeed.

Nothing else mattered, its was all about paying less, and not paying someone else's health costs..
