About Me

May need to limit my time on DU, so if I don't get back to you right away, it's not personal. I've been ON DU so much I got a lot of other stuff to do. See ya' soon.

Valhalla Calling Me is a cover of a song from the game Assassin's Creed, but this group put it on steroids

Winning over the Independents to our cause so we can sweep the country and win at least 2/3rds majority.

Votes NOT Violence.
Books NOT Bans.
TRUTH NOT Tantrums.
People NOT Politics

THE REICH WING goose stepping to the MAGA beat are AGENTS OF CHAOS.

tRUMP is the ONLY FPOTUS who has broken so many laws while in office and when he left that he has multiple lawsuits in multiple states and a DOJ Investigation pending is NOT WORTHY of calling himself a Republican.


IT ISNíT a FAILURE of the SYSTEM to catch a criminal masquerading as an upstanding citizen while robbing people blind.

ITíS A FEATURE of the SYSTEM to PROTECT We The People from the Predator Oligarchs who only want to fill their pockets and donít care who has to die to make that happen.

Did people here know about Reuters Trust Principles?

I find it quite refreshing to see they put these together in 1941 and kept them in 1984 when they became a public company.



Thomson Reuters itself is obliged and committed to apply the Trust Principles to its operations. The charter documents of Thomson Reuters Corporation include provisions to safeguard the Trust Principles as they apply to the Thomson Reuters business and require Thomson Reuters Directors, in the performance of their duties, to have due regard to the Trust Principles, by the proper exercise of their powers and in accordance with their other duties as Directors.
The Trust Principles are:

1) That Reuters shall at no time pass into the hands of any one interest, group, or faction;
2) That the integrity, independence, and freedom from bias of Thomson Reuters shall at all times be fully preserved;
3) That Reuters shall supply unbiased and reliable news services to newspapers, news agencies, broadcasters, and other media subscribers and to businesses, governments, institutions, individuals, and others with whom Reuters has or may have contracts;
4) That Thomson Reuters shall pay due regard to the many interests which it serves in addition to those of the media; and
5) That no effort shall be spared to expand, develop, and adapt the news and other services and products of Thomson Reuters so as to maintain its leading position in the international news and information business

Thomson Reuters Founders Share Company was established in 1984 when Reuters became a public company. The directors of Thomson Reuters Founders Share Company (known as ĎTrusteesí) have a duty to ensure, to the extent possible, that the Trust Principles are complied with.

What do you call it when you MELT DOWN from a MAGA tirade aimed at you?

I am trying to figure out what to call it when I completely melted down when my Grandson started doing the MAGA roll on me and I had to come inside, was out shoveling driveway with him due to this mega storm hitting Minnesota.

IT FELT LIKE PTSD, but I don't know why. I was chaotic emotionally, felt like I had to defend myself or leave. I had my BFF on the bluetooth headset and neither of us was sure HOW it all unraveled because she could only hear my side of the conversation.

I'd offered Grandson $20 to help me shovel the driveway in back of our house. He and I had a quick spat ALTHOUGH when I went to ask for his help, all was good. I caught him being "good" and productively shoveling the FRONT walk without being asked by me. Offered him cash money and then went to put on layers.

THEN I got on the PC to log off and there was water dripping down on my hands. I went back up stairs and the Grandson was on the game console directly above me with a puddle mark at his feet. He'd left his boots on and the snow melted through the floor and sub-floor which his father, my son, told me is not doing well. SO I pointed this out to him as an issue and asked him to put his boots in front porch in future and he tried to tell me it could have been leaky pipes.

I said, "NO, there aren't any pipes above the computer desk downstairs and I can see this puddle mark exactly above ..."

He interrupts me and blusters that there are pipes "EVERYWHERE" downstairs.

"Dude, I live down there and the ceiling is open. I can SEE the pipes." Guess I started raising my voice because I hate it when they try to gaslight me.

"QUIT YELLING AT ME. I'm not talking to you anymore" Grandson said.

I go super quiet, "You can come down and look. There are NO PIPES. Just PLEASE put your boots in front porch in the future. That's all I'm asking." No answer.

"FINE. You want to play the victim. I can make that happen." I head down with the option to just turn off the internet so he can't use that as a reason to ignore talking to me. My Hubby was even on board with it, but I decided to be calm and mature and just go out and shovel. I said this all loudly from downstairs so he knew he dodged a consequence.

On the phone with my BFF via bluetooth speaker I am telling her about how that went and how I'm on my own. Grandson shows up from the driveway side and starts helping, BUT he is on a RANT that it's awful how his Dad and I can't talk and that I should just LEAVE whenever things get bad and that I OFTEN START the political fights.

I DO NOT. I go upstairs with the EXPRESS intent of NON-Political conversation. AND with the hope of getting out of the room without being dragged into one because I am trying to build a relationship with my son that can withstand such a conversation.

I tell Grandson this and he insists that I DO START IT SOMETIMES.

"WHEN? Give me one example."

"Gas prices." He says.

"WHEN" I insist.

"I don't know. Then he goes on and on about Blue Laser Project and telling me what I need to do with his Dad."

I try to play by his rules and we make one or two agreements. He's going to put his boots on the linoleum in the front porch so we don't get leakage downstairs. I accept his apology that he didn't think he owed me.

BUT the fact that he's CLUELESS about what Jim Crow Laws are and thinks Biden voted FOR THEM blew up my brain and I just had to leave.

I've been feeling suicidal off and on because of the way my Son and Grandkids only remember that I am here when they want something from me and once they get what they want, decide it's their job to save me from myself and tell me the legitimate KNEWS from TicTOk.

It FEELS LIKE PTSD, but IS there a better name for it?

How many here knew that George Washington ordered slaughter of Indians during Revolutionary War?

I get that he might have had to fight and kill any that sided with the British, because war is war.

BUT what I never knew is that he raised the villages of those tribes that had sided WITH US as well.

Started with a Politics Girl interview with Matthew Cooke.

I objected to him exaggerating about George Washington being a murderer with the teeth of dead slaves in his mouth.

Well, by putting that in one sentence, it implied that George had slaves murdered so he could have dentures. THAT has never, ever been put forth, though slaves having to give over teeth because they didn't have the right to refuse... BAD ENOUGH.

I wrote to MeidasTouch because that is how I was subscribed to Politics Girl. And I found Matthew Cooke on FB and messaged him too.

Props to the guy. He replied within 30 minutes.

So now I know more, thought I'd share.


Secondary Sources confirm it happened.


MY QUESTION is how much of it was Washington's idea/plan/goal and how much of it was the Continental Congress?

Thank you all for the Valentine's hearts.

It's been a rough week, but I appreciate everyone here on DU and thank you all for your kindness.

Right back attcha!!

What do you do when you're too depressed to start?

I admit it and then I do one thing.

I am going to take a shower.

Then I think I will call my BFF or my Sister. BFF might still be in church.

Too late for the shower. Hubby is home, I think.

Was already supposed to have done that by now.

I am SO tired of tRUMP and his whole alternate universe.

Issuing orders to Congress to investigate fake crimes and accusing media other than his own alternate Knews of being fake.

His followers thinking he actually won.

Them not believing that Jan 6th happened.

I am so tired of knowing the truth and not being set free of being confronted daily with the ignorance of others that is in the (slight) majority in the House.

I WANT REALITY BACK to FACTS first, THEN opinions.

I am SO SICK of all the lies being told that make a mockery of our country and our justice system.

EVEN though there are people still fighting the good fight.

Today I just feel like crying because these liars are SO relentless. Clueless, but relentless.

Say it with me and copy and paste far and wide....


"When you make a mistake with classified documents, follow the Biden example. Be honest, cooperate, be thorough and do the right thing and return them as soon as they have been found."

DEMS should repeat this like a broken record.

Send it out wherever you can, because it is the TRUTH and it's a way to fight back against the "both sides BS".
