    We haven't begged for hamster food since October

    We haven’t begged for hamster food since October

    Sorry folks but it’s time again. Hamsters are hungry! Boris is being mean and making them eat kidney beans and onions. Worse yet, that damn DNC check bounced :lol:

    It was suggested that we do a fund raiser to buy Library Girl a life but she seems happy in her misery. So we decided doing a fund raiser for the hamsters was a better idea.

    Thank you all for everything you do. Regardless of what you contribute, in words, ideas, money or just jumping in a thread, we’re grateful you’re here fighting the good fight.

      73. A handful of hamster pellets is on the way.

      Let us know when the little bastards are getting hungry. If enough of us give a handful each, they should never starve. Although I see nothing wrong with kidney beans and onions. It sounds like an excellent meal. Flatulence is not such a bad thing. Some people even consider it a form of indoor recreation. The hamsters probably don’t mind either.

        According to The Hamster House,

        You should never give your furry friend any citrus fruit or onion as they are high in acid and your hamster could end up with an upset tummy.

        While Boris may not care, the rest of us try to keep the hamsters happy. :lol:

          one might think a creative fabricator like myself wouldn’t have had to search online to learn what it was, having seen them in use so many times. Now if my game had the precision of your craft, a wager or two could become a reality and i could win that cutter. The guys (and too few gals) that I shoot with are far too good for my physical game; if it were not for being able to get inside the heads of the lesser players my win/lose would be under 50%. So I play for fun. You may enjoy the game yourself

                  The smoke signals were used to attract the attention, then the parties positioned themselves in a particular way in holes dug in the ground. Then thoughts were channeled. I mention this because I asked for, and received, your good vibes on a difficult shot. Your reply here was made at that very time. Coincidence? Who cares? Happy valentines day.

      103. Happy To Give My "Bernie" Amount…

      Not much I know, but for now the best I can do, but so many of us have come to depend on this alternative to where we came from! Hoping to be much more active here as time goes by as my ability to move around improves!

      Thanks to JPR and some other alternative news sites that I’ve depended on to report so much more TRUTH that this country needs to know.

      Happy Valentines Day and thanks to all who do such GREAT work!

          110. Thank You… Just Wanted To Help In Some Small Way.

          I’ve had LOTS of time to reflect on so many issues.  One that I struggle with the most is whether those of us who are liberal should abandon the Democratic Party of today which I find appalling because too many have failed us for way too long.  I know there are 60 or so who are willing to stand up against the status quo, but these numbers are much too small.  I really wish I could see a way to form a new more Progressive/Liberal Party that actually has a chance to show the DLC/Third Wayers just how out of touch they are.  They still hold so much power and forming Third Parties will bring out the long knives.

          Plus, past attempts to do this have yet to produce any real strength to take them over.  I could go on and on about WHY I think it’s a good idea but then I know too many Democrats who absolutely want to fight back from within.  Given that Bernie wants to fight from within DOES carry a lot of weight, but he like me have been in the trenches fighting back.  Bernie IS the reason why so many think reforms will eventually make others how very weak and spineless THIS DEMOCRATIC Party is.

          Didn’t mean to go on and on, guess I’m so fed up with what has happened to this country and how CAPITALISM has ruined our economy.  Too many people are suffering here and all over the world and WE only know how to start WARS!

      165. Sorry, no. I've been on the fence re: JPR lately, and I just got a big shove.

      No need to go into the many reasons I have begun to doubt

      that JPR was going to be all I had hoped it would- I’m sure

      you are aware of them. Same concerns many members have;

      nothing new there.

       

      But one of your ‘members in good standing’ recently flat out stated

      that I am “racist right-wing trash” and your Mods let the comment stand,

      so it has become clear to me that JPR is not a place for me to become emotionally

      invested in.

        167. I can only address the link you provided, but just maybe there was some …

        misunderstanding.

        Yes I agree that Obama could/should have done more, especially with the HC issue that crosses all economic, racial and gender issues, not to mention makes us as a whole society more productive. We need to lift all people in our nation to survive, we sink or swim together.

        So I have never given Obama a pass in my criticism,  but I also understand that he played a unique role in our nation’s history while never calling attention to the color of his skin, but he faced very difficult economic times and opposition. Some criticism was because he was not pure white, a disgusting display.  All that being said, IMHO, he gets a little bit of leeway, he was fighting fronts that no ever president ever had to do.

        To call him a grade A piece of shit for not foreseeing the Flint Water crisis and preventing it goes a bit too far, honestly, I have been Very critical of him for bowing to corporate interests in the past, but I will not blame him for every evil.

        24. Ignoring this problem qualifies Obama as a grade-A piece of shit.
        He “systemically” didn’t lift a finger, when he had a ton of power to help.

        Fucker.”

        The response asked a question, while reminding us he had challenges unlike any president has ever felt in the past. I can see why you might feel it was directed at you personally, so I can understand to some extent. But you also need to read the reply in the context of what Obama faced as he was the first black president and many criticisms were leveled at him, sadly because the color of his skin.

        I been an ardent critic of Obama, that being said I do realize he was also under the gun from day one, unfortunately by people who had a problem with his skin tone.

        Do I believe this was a direct attack on you, not necessarily. Honestly I do believe you were talking past one another, we need to move forward together.

        28. Sometimes it’s good, if one has ever learned, to remember what Obama could do
        with both houses fighting on a daily basis to prevent his success in every conceivable way.

        Some of us are very aware that Mitch McConnell said at the very first it was his intention to make certain the man never got a chance to run for a second term, etc., etc., etc.

        Those of us who remember what filthy forces were at work don’t have an easy time trying to take kicks at a man who had more thrown at him than any white president before him.

        Who would ever try to discount how much harder every thing was for former President Obama, anyway?
