It figures. The whole party continues moving right, first Hillary, than all her little pop star fans, and now Warren Buffett. We've come a long way since 2008.

But it is good karma for you, and you should be proud that you are doing good for someone else.  And happy that you CAN do good.  That you have health, brains, time, ability, talent education, and so forth!

If you are a supporter of Hillary I won't insult your intelligence, nor get into a long pissing contest. I simply want to ask, if there is nothing wrong with what Hillary said at Goldman Sachs / Wall Street meetings, where she was paid $250,000 to speak; why will she not release them to shut up Bernie Sanders, and the rest of us supporters up? Other than it being a Romney/47% type of comment?

Don't you at least wonder that? You would be demanding the right release the same type of thing. Why is it hands off when it comes to Hillary?

Look at the way the Clintons treat black people... Bernie stepped aside, and let someone insult him and his supporters, yet they claim he has a black problem?

The sad part about this is, it used to be Republicans calling us Democrats socialists, spreading fear about voter fraud, and running a campaign purely on social issues, based on fear, etc. Sadly, everyone that I see doing that now, are Hillary supporters.

It figures... when their leader decided to become a Republican, and use right-wing tactics this election, as she did in 2008, the fans decided to follow her. Maybe you guys can even get Sarah Palin to run as VP? Some Hillary supporters are so far up George Bush's ass, they can probably taste Dick Cheney. 🤔

Hillary is a moderate Republican. What can we expect? There has not been a real center-left Democrat for decades. Even Obama is a centrist.

Some of the anti-Trump rhetoric and actions from some people, are going to create a backlash, and you're proving the point being made why right-wingers. When Trump supporters got violent towards a protester a few weeks ago, they looked like idiots, and we had the upper hand.

There's nothing we need to do to make Trump look bad, he makes him and his supporters look like idiots. They're doing on their own. But when people start getting violent at events, desecrating American flags, and waving Mexican flags around, throwing rocks at people driving by, it sends the wrong message. I made fun of other punks that walked around with British flags in the 80s, this is no different, and is worth reconsidering, because you are helping to support their cause by your actions.
The protests outside Donald Trump’s rally in Costa Mesa on Thursday night pose political questions for both demonstration organizers and the presidential candidate as the California primary nears.

Everyone should watch this, but if any of you like to pretend you're a Democrat, or Progressive, or even a moderate, you should watch this. I would definitely recommend watching the town hall, featuring both candidates.

Does HerRoyalClintoness Talk About Democratic Unity And How Similar Her Goals Are To Bernie Sanders?? .............NO!

Does HerRoyalClintoness Address Bernie Sanders Supporters Concerns About Campaign Finance Reform, Income Inequity. Climate Change or Breaking Up TooBigToFail Banks? ..........NO!

Does HerRoyalClintoness Even ASK Bernie Sanders Supporters For Their Votes? NO!

As You Will See In The Video HerRoyalClintoness Doesn't Even Talk About Bernie Sanders Supporters And The Incalculable Contributions Their Revolution Has Made In Attracting Millons Of Disenfranchised And. Disgusted Americans To Reengage With The American Political Process

NO...NO....NO....NO...NO...

+Brian Alderson I think that's a separate issue altogether, and has more to do with family business, and changes in the family structure and the necessity of a two working household. Eventually, and I don't think it's very far away, it will be the norm. I went to a "made in New Hampshire" event in Manchester yesterday kwhich is going on all weekend) and a large percentage of the businesses were owned by women.

Education
  • California State University
    Psychology & Sociology
    I majored in Psychology and Sociology, though I took just as many, if not more, philosophy courses. My application was accepted by some graduate programs shortly after graduating, but for personal reasons, I had to pass up the opportunities.
Story
Tagline
Free Will is Determined
Introduction
I enjoy discussing philosophy, politics, science, and any related topics. 

Biography: I was raised in New Jersey, but grew up in California (doesn't say much for Jersey, does it?). I write and share stuff on Google+ for family, friends, and the general public.

My Circles: I have the usual circles, Family and Friends, etc.. I also have circles for Technology, Science, Politics, "Favorite People," "Cool People," and "New People." When I first add you, you are in my "New People" circle. As I get to know you better, and you interact more, you get to my "Cool People," or "Favorite People" circle. It takes time, but I will move you up if I get to know you (or move you down).

I take time to add people to my circles, because I carefully view their profiles and posts. So, if you added me and I haven't added you back yet, please be patient and interact on my posts. I'm not interested in being cool, or demonstrating that thousands of people like me; if I was, I would join Fakebook. To me, this is about communication and growth.

Age: 41.

Ethnicity: Does it matter? It shouldn't. If I must tell you, and you don't get it by my picture, I'm "white," although, the term is inaccurate since we tend to be more of a light peach color.

I am a mixture of a few ethnicity's, as most people are. My grandfather was of German ancestry, though to him, an Army Veteran, he was simply an American. My Grandmother was Jewish and English. The dirtbag that impregnated my mother was also Jewish. So, I'm Jewish, English, and German. So I always defend myself when I think about committing suicide (it's a joke, think about it for a minute). 

Politics: I am a Liberal Progressive Democrat with Socialist leanings. I still align with the Democratic party; though I often complain about its flaws. I don't believe in being completely cynical about politics as nothing will get accomplished if we put our hands up like some do and say "they're all the same."

"They" are NOT all the same. Bush was proof that they are not the same... In the 8 years following Clinton's departure from the white house, we would have been much better off with Gore as president; especially considering his winning the election; but that's another story...
 
Music: I love music; with a special emphasis on 70's-80's New Wave & Punk. Of course I also love Blues, Jazz, Rock and Roll, Funk, R&B (The real stuff, pre-1980's), Reggae, Ska, and Hip-Hop, etc.
 
Movies/TV: I like Sci-Fi, especially Star Trek. I like comedy, and enjoy listening to or watching George Carlin, Louis C.K., and other like-minded comedians.
 
Food: I am a Vegetarian; wannabe Vegan. Actually, in the past 21 years that I have been Vegetarian, I have been Vegan on and off. If you scroll through my profile, my weight changes fairly drastically over the years, especially when I eat cheese. I recently gave up my cheese addiction and am attempting to be a full Vegan again. In a short amount of time I lost a great deal of weight, simply by cutting out the cheese and eating more veggies.
 
Technology: I mainly use Android devices, besides my Windows PC and Chromebook. I built custom computers in the 1990's and early 2000's, for fun, when I had more time, before becoming a parent. I like to customize what I own, and prefer more options than what is usually offered by computer manufacturers.
 
When I have worked in audio engineering and in graphic design, and had the unlucky opportunity to use an Apple, I always would ask for a PC. It's not just the fact that I am used to, and prefer a non-Apple computer, it's the fact that I have had as many, if not more, issues on an Apple computer; though Apple users usually suggest otherwise.
 
I currently use a Samsung Galaxy S5, Google Nexus 7 (2013), and a Chromebook. Oh, and a Windows PC that I don't like turning on unless I have to; especially after upgrading to Windows 8. It's not as bad as some people say, but I had no real reason to upgrade, and shouldn't have. It sucks, and is really slow.
 
Social Media: Because I work in Marketing, I have had to setup Facebook and Twitter accounts for the companies that I have worked for. I have used both effectively, and reluctantly, for marketing and business purposes.

I do not use, nor maintain, a Fakebook account, nor have the desire to have one. I have probably "tweeted" 5-6 times. Instead, I promote Google+ to family, friends, and businesses because I believe it is a better social media tool that is much less invasive, more powerful, and much more enjoyable than what other companies are offering. Though, it is rare any of them actually get on.
 
Philosophy: Systems of beliefs are a personal matter. I don't appreciate the attempt to convert me, and I gain nothing from an attempt to convert you, so why bother? My philosophies are made clear on some of my posts, so it's not as simple as me offering a declaration of my philosophy on my profile. You can disagree with my philosophical views, yet still enjoy most of the other content that I provide.
 
Debate: I like to debate and discuss topics with others; the conversation is over once racism, sexism, hatred, violence, enters the discussion. At that point, I leave, or go out of my way to offend the offensive.

Thank's for reading, I look forward to your comments.

I was a paying customer for a year. In fact, I paid for a year of service in advance. They came out the first time, and everything was great. I signed up for their quarterly service, and was told that they come out every quarter, and whenever I need them, no matter how many times they need to come out. They repeatedly explained that anytime we have a bug or mice problem, we should call. Whenever I would have an issue, I would call the office, as I was told in the beginning, and the customer service was very nice, and always say "we'll send someone out to help." Beyond the quarterly service, they came out probably 4 times this past year. Once was because we found a bunch of wasps entering an area of the house. One of those times was because the technician was not prepared. I had called because we were having a fly issue, and when he came, he said he didn't have any fly traps, and would have to come back another time with one if we continued seeing flys. Another time they came out again because we continued having fly's and were unsure if they were drain fly's or fruit fly's, and were doing what we could to rid our house of them. They said they would have the technician take a sample to their entomologist. He came, but didn't feel he needed to do that, so instead, insisted they were fruit fly's; despite the fact that we had no fruit for months, no sign of a fly infestation, etc. By that time, he gave us a little trap, and after awhile, we saw no more flys. Then, fast forward to winter, and despite having traps, we found mouse droppings in our house; so, of course we called them. They came out, replaced the traps, and left. We continued seeing mice. Another technician doing a free inspection from a competing company said they were not using the right kind of traps; I won't get into that, because I honestly don't know, as he was likely simply trying to get my business. The fact is, they came out for the quarterly service, and 4 additional times, and they felt that was above and beyond what they should do. My point is, if there is a limit, they should tell the customer! In fact, the competing company that came out said that they come out 3 times per year instead of 4, and will come out an additional 2 times if needed. So, they have a clear policy limit to the amount of times they come out. Why does JP Pest Control not have a clear stated policy limit, when they in fact have a limit? The last service I received was towards the end of April, despite the fact that I have over 2 months left on my contract (that was paid far in advance). The technician that came to do the service would not search for fleas, nor would he spray on the inside perimeter, because we have been seeing spiders lately. He stated that he didn't see any (as if spiders would be hanging out 24/7 in plain site), and that if I had a problem, I would need to call the office when I see them. So, with 2 1/2 months to go, they tell me that they will not renew my contract because basically, they came out more than the quarterly service allotted. They didn't state that specifically, and made an attempt at saying it nicely, alluding to the fact that they didn't feel they could "service my needs," however, I protested, because I did in fact want to keep the service, because I was happy overall, and did not want to find a replacement company. I also spoke with them on the same day, mentioning the fact that despite it being my last service, the technician refused to spray inside my house. The stark contrast from my previous review is because of the fact that if you do have them come out when there is an issue, and they feel they have come out too much, than they cancel the contract. If they had said in the beginning that they have a quarterly service, and will come out an extra 1 or 2 times, I would have understood that. It's their policy to state they come out anytime I need them; our service should not have been canceled because they decided it was too much for them to honor their own policy.

The food was excellent, and the service was even better. Definitely impressed with how well we were treated, and really enjoyed our server. This may not be the place if you're on a budget, but if you want a nice romantic meal in a great atmosphere, with excellent customer service, this is the place to go.

Service is good, but purchasing process is a pain and takes longer than any other dealer. In over 20+ years, I purchased 4 cars here, and it was always the most inefficient and time-wasting experience. Overall, the service is good, so I am giving it 3 stars for that, but when it comes to purchasing a car, it's a long, drawn out experience beyond anything I have experienced at any other dealer. Used car sales is not great; one out of 2 used cars that I purchased here were duds with ongoing problems right after purchase.
