Welcome to Express Yourself

Happy New Year, everyone! I haven't been around in a while. I'm afraid Topix has become too repetitive and banal to keep my attention. Plus it no longer sports an interesting feed of articles. But I do want to wish everyone the best for the holidays and the new year! I've known many of you on-line for a long time, now. And I remember you and your thoughts fondly.  (Jan 1, 2016 | post #1330)

The pundits keep telling us Bernie doesn't have a chance. After he drew record crowds across the North East and Midwest, they said, "Yeah, but he doesn't have any appeal in the South." Well, he just drew overflow crowds in Savannah. You can't get much more South than that! Bernie has wide appeal. And he's electrifying people who have correctly discerned that neither party has been representing them and have thus been discouraged. IMO, the pundits keep telling us Bernie can't win because it will be a disaster for their own business. No SuperPACs means no billions of dollars in advertising. No bonuses for the executives at News Corp, Comcast, and Time-Warner. K-street lobbyists wanting to spend a night in the Lincoln Bedroom will instead get a swift kick in the rear. Pundits hate the idea of Bernie.  (Nov 24, 2015 | post #947)

Don't shop on Thanksgiving. There are more important things than buying stuff. There are more important things than saving a few dollars. There are more important things than increasing Macy's and Walmart's sales. BTW: I never understood the incessant march of business to stay open more hours and more days. I've never had the least bit of problem spending all my money before the end of the month, regardless of how few hours shops are open. Now that we have the internet, I don't even have to leave the house to spend all my money. And don't shop on the internet on Thanksgiving, either. Just because you aren't actually interacting with anyone doesn't mean support staff doesn't have to forego their time with their family just so you can order something NOW instead of later.  (Nov 17, 2015 | post #875)

OUT Magazine LGBT 'Ally of the Year': Obama

Actually, it's got to do with being sexually immature. And it turns out that the malady affects gays in about the same proportion has heterosexuals.  (Nov 12, 2015 | post #26)

Washington state man who yelled anti-gay slurs and threat...

I can recall many recent cases where assaults resulted in great and permanent physical harm to the victims. Yet the attackers got much lighter sentences. I'm glad this judge takes hate crimes seriously. I wish more did.  (Nov 10, 2015 | post #5)

Apparent election of gay mayor in Salt Lake sends a signal

Maybe because homophobes have been raising the fuss up until recently. Charges of homosexuality used to be enough to sideline a nomination or an election. It still is in too many localities. So it's news that we've moved beyond that to electing the best person for the job. Just think about that: American electorate is no longer blinded by ignorance and fear. Now THAT"s news!  (Nov 9, 2015 | post #28)
