There is one thing that these three have/had in common that explains why they gained enormous popularity. This is that they offered hope to people, and huge numbers of people believed them. They are/were all Messiahs in their...

BernieZ I've read and found myself a bit ready to move on quietly.

Just wanted to take a moment aside to thank all who have served in our armed forces on this Veteran's Day. Being a veteran myself, it was an honor to serve my country, and I usually say I am more honored to have served than...

Here I go again, sharing some of my covers. I just cannot help myself. I did this one back in February of 2017 and had a lot of fun with it. It is such a simple song. But I can remember how much of an impact this song had when it...

So, Showtime is doing a miniseries about Roger Ailes, former chairman and CEO of Fox News who became entangled in some sexual harassment scandals which ultimately lead to his ousting. Russel Crowe will play the former media...

So, it is the month of November. I was very hardly active last month. But a LOT of MyLotters will be celebrating Thanksgiving this month and need any dollars they can get to help bring some turkeys and trimmings to the table. So,...

Hi everybody. It's Mildred the Cat. Long time no write. My mom asked me to post a reminder to all our mutual myLot friends, human, feline and canine, to get out and vote this coming Tuesday. Not mentioning any names, I will be...

Last night and this morning, my moderator and I spent a good deal of time clearing out our reported discussions list of a very unusually high volume of reports. Some were clear violations and were removed (of course), others were...

The United States is the most violent nation in the world. It is heartbreaking. According to the BBC News on January 5, 2016 and CBS News on October 7, 2017: "Firearms were used to kill 13,286 people in the U.S. in 2015,...

I wonder if this Cesar Sayoc chap in America who allegedly posted the pipe bombs has been snared in an FBI sting operation? 95% of planned Muslim attacks in America turn out to be just that where American Muslims are paid cash to...

BernieZ All I can say is this has been a culture created from the last President when Police were always the bad guy when a shooting happened. The country came out of Obama's 8 years more divided and more victim mentality oriented. Rather than focus on what could be...
Trump wants to send the US military to the Texas Southern Border. Will we shoot first and ask questions last?

I mean, those refugees are headed right to the Texas southern border. They are over 1600 miles away I think and still moving. What will the message be? Will America just shoot first then ask questions last? I do not see a...

For some today, it's a holiday. Our business will be open, other places like some banks, will be closed. It depends on what the business is and if they close on this holiday. So enjoy it if you get to have it off. There will...

This is an opinion, a rant if you will. I get so tired of the Trump haters calling me names! Telling me I am stupid because I do not join in on their hate spreading, while they are praising the last president, Obama, like he...

BernieZ @andriaperry Great statement. What irritates me about the present mess is that there still could have been evidence collected even after so many years but because every potential lead and several pieces of potential evidence were contaminated by the release to...

I think this last month has been one of the most despicable episodes in our recent United States history. If there had been any true, credible evidence that Justice Kavanaugh had assaulted Dr. Ford, he would not be a Supreme...

We were cleaning out my daddy's office the other day and found this photograph in his file cabinet. My sister and I had never seen this picture before. At first glance we thought this was a photograph of him in Vietnam, but when...

BernieZ @Tampa_girl7 3 clearly. then the person taking the picture would make 4. When I stare at it I can see what looks like 3 more which brings the total to 7 Males. I also see what appears to be several others (possibly getting the total of men to 11 ie 4 more). It...

Hey, I think it is great when people believe in something if it makes them a better person. No matter how wacky and irrational it sounds, but I myself have always wondered why many people never saw religion from this light? It is...

In the whole circus that is the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process, it seems like the FBI is being constantly tossed into the whole mess. DESPITE the fact that there are 6 background checks by the FBI to refer to which found...
