    Hopefully....have you ever read "What's the Matter with Kansas?". If not the question is how the most progressive firebrand part of the country when it came to labor and economic policy because so anti-labor and pro-big business. Of course the idea is social conservatism. Brownback and others would talk about God and Abortion and use their political power to pass anti-labor/deregulation measures.

    That's why I agree...younger generations are much more socially liberal and even if the Republican party liberalizes on the social front (which I don't think they will for a very long time) that leaves their economic message...which doesn't really stand on it's own.

    Loving the avatar of Lech Walsesa man! Was a great freedom fighter and a great labor leader!
  4. It is Elek Benedek who was a Hungarian journalist and writer. He was known as "the great folk-tale teller". Among his huge body of work he compiled a 5-volume collection of Hungarian Folk-Tales and Legends, many of them from the Székely people of Transylvania.

    I checked out the Politico's message board this morning. There was a notice that the message board (Disqus) doesn't support Windows 7 browser. You have to be running FireFox, Google Chrome or Widows 9 to post a message. How stupid are these people at the Politico ? I use to have FireFox some years ago, but I really didn't care for the new version. I think we discussed that awhile back. You provided a link where you could download the old version of FireFox.

    I noticed that Debatepolitics has an ignore function where you hit the ignore tab of a member who might be a stalker or troll and you can't see any of his or hers post. I remember the About.com forums has that function.

    No reason to ever go back to the Politico, to many incompetent people running that website, especially their IT's. They have so much garbage on their site there isn't enough bandwidth and their entire website is slow.

    Catch you later
  7. Thank you. Hopefully, we'll all enjoy it here...

What's going on at POLITICO

by shrubnose on 01-28-13 at 04:49 PM
I couldn't resist going to POLITICO to see what's up with the new comment system.
First I found that I was able to post without registering, maybe because I have posted on a number of other forums.
It's hard to break old habits, so I guess that I might go back there from time to time but I don't like the setup. Even with the spammers,etc. it was better before than it is now. I find it too hard to work with now.
Saw that a lot of the old-timers were still there, didn't interact

A Holocaust Memorial Day (January 27) Joke

by shrubnose on 01-28-13 at 02:18 PM
Throughout the bitter days of the existence of the Warsaw Ghetto a clandestine group of researchers there compiled a vast archive detailing every aspect of life in that prison city. After the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was predictably defeated the Nazis razed the Ghetto culminating with the demolition of the Great Synagogue of Warsaw on May 16, 1943.
But not everything was destroyed. In September 1946 after weeks of planning and calculation 3 survivors of the Oyneg Shabbes (Joy of the Sabbath)
