Hello DPers. You can find me hanging out here every day. You guys are like family to me; my intellectual family. And I just love it here.
One of my skills and hobbies is doing photoshop work. I can edit and manipulate photos, add captions, create banners and logos... you name it; and I love doing this stuff. And it is something that I can do while I work my normal job without affecting me. And it would actually help pass the time while I am at work.
So if you have any graphic arts wants or needs, could use flyers, logos, banners, advertisements, signs, stickers, pamphlets, anything to help a campaign, or are in need of assistance on a graphics project, I WOULD BE THRILLED to help you out with that. And if you know or see someone that could use that type of service here on the boards, please put them in contact with me.
Has anybody ever heard of this ?
.. might want to think twice before pulling the trigger.
DP - I pose the question: is deadly force justified against an officer who just shot your dog? What about felony cruelty to animals charges?
A recent court ruling reaffirms that pets are property in Texas.
I refer you to Texas Penal Code § 9.42. Subsection (3):
§ 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:
(3) he reasonably believes that:
(A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or
(B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.
Anybody watching this Frontline episode United States of Secrets on PBS? On right now on the east coast.Submitted by fyi2day on Tue, 05/13/2014 - 21:48
Started about 45 minutes ago... Thoughts??? if you are, "heads up" if you haven't heard about it yet.
Okay, I don't know why I do this, but I made the following statement on Facebook:
"Obama, your foreign policy has killed more little girls than Boko Haram ever could"
Of course, this has caused backlash from people. Most in particular, the following statement was made to contradict mine:
Does anyone recall a few months ago the DP joined several other websites in a letter/phone drive to stop something? Internet Censorship? Or one of these?:
I can't recall. :(
Well, I think openmedia was one of the partners and I signed up for their emails.
This is the second time in a few weeks I was sent a notification on something from them and I haven't seen any postings about it on the DP, which is a surprise. They're requesting the same joint efforts as last time.
It sounds like something we'd be interested in.
I have traveled far and wide and lived overseas on numerous occasions. But there is only one place for me that is home, one land that I love the most.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
I have been looking up ways to clean up a credit report for a friend.
About 12 years ago he had a home, credit card, a small loan he said because he was making improvements to his house. And a few other things.
He was making timely payments for years, until the bottom dropped out.
He lost his job, lost his savings trying to pay all the bills, lost his house, sold it on a short sell, and within 2 years he still had no job, no house, and a host of judgment's against him.
I've been living in the suburb of Chicago for the past 12 years, just got a job in Northern VA and moving there next month. Need your advice on where to live. For two reasons, 1. I've been part of this community since the summer of 2007 - you are family to me and 2. I plan on hitting the road running when I get there with respect to political activism etc. I know RP did really well there in both 2008 and 2012 in VA and there are a lot of liberty minded folks there. But what area specifically would you guys recommend that I look into?
For me, it is the abandonment of our philosophy. I am not an extremist for believing in the power of Liberty. Our founding documents paved the way for human rights. Its a track record that is difficult, but I find pride in.
I miss Justin Wilson. I watched him cook when I was a child.
I wish the Food Network would seek to employ a similar fellow.
2016: Rand Paul?
Let your voice be heard...Go Vote!
Results will be sent to you by email...
What is the plan for Rand Paul 2016.
Is "he" going to go for the popular strategy ? (popular vote)
Or the Ron Paul/Goldwater caucusing strategy ? (attempt to stock the state delegates for the convention)
I just cannot stop thinking about how all this is going to play out. I obviously don't have to air my views on Rand but I think since Jeb and the other Neanderthals are gearing up I was wondering what you guys think.
**Personally I feel:**
did Ron Paul really stand his ground like an enraged patriot,
or did he cower to the black suits who cheated the election from him?
Are we ghosts?
Are we relevant and does being relevant matter?
Are we inspirational?
Are we delusional...delusional writers?
Are we heard?
