Potpourri:
any mixture, especially of unrelated objects, subjects, etc.
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/potpourri


The Daily Digest is a potpourri. While there are usually constant subjects it is a mixture varying from day to day due to what, where, when and how. What the media is concentrating on, where where material is available in that theres a pattern of visitation to sites, when there is time available to search, how linkage can be lifted off and placed on the post for distribution..

The most important question word is this however: why? Why you choose to receive the "DD"?

This was received to-day "not so sure I am interested in receiving links to `information clearing house' extremist stuff, Joe". My response? Among those receiving the Digest much would not be
included should each persons' "I really am not interested in receiving links to . . . ." be excluded.  What is trash to one person may well be treasure to another . . . and so a broad range of material is included.  Indeed all on a given day that time allows from whatever sources are available. Few have the time to read all the articles available let alone watch the videos that increasingly accompany them.

The contributions for the BELOW (30) section have been criticized as being too long, too repetitive, too frequently from the same persons.. Again there are those who look forward to one or the other type.

Few of us read all sections of our newspapers. So it is I believe is the case here - read what you choose to, pass over the rest but realize that others are doing the same and their focus maybe on what is dross to you.

Well, it's after the time this ought to have been sent out.

Focus on what you find of value to you, but doing so knowing others have the same view of what you choose to  pass by.in this potpourri.

        Joe.

Subject: Re: veteran's day of protest

Hi Joe:  I did not read in the email about this issue about any specific problem tha t would cause this protest.  I am the widow of a 2nd World War Veteran who needed the help from Veterans affairs and was 3 years in Sunnybrook Veterans facility.  His treatment was superlative.  We were also eligible for help from the Veteran's independence Program which provides help to veteran's and family who want to stay in their home as long as possible instead of going into long term care. This program is a great help to me currently.
One can assume that because there is a very large reduction in the number of veteran's who require extra help these days that the government is reducing it's budget allotment. I do not know very much about the current veteran's but have heard that rehabilitation programs abound and that there is a very serious program to deal with postramatic stress
Personally I think that protests have become an industry in this world of ours.  there seems to be an attitude of entitlement among some of our citizens which takes hold of some of them who one reason or another feel they have been treated unfairly.
In my opinion I think the current government has a prudent program to reduce spending and get this country in better financial shape. sometimes this is hurtful but a least we are not looking at the problems that the rest of the global economy is dealing with.  So down with protests just observe this Remembrance Day with sorrow and respect.  
Thanks  Joe    Peggy Merritt

Subject: An "eminent person" speaks! Who pays for these "eminent persons?  Who ELECTED THEM?
The EU has worked so well in Europe, eh?  These brain dead 'eminent persons' have no concept of reality.  The only thing they believe is that what they dictate is the only way the world should be.  Killing Libyans is not a crime if it is to make them a 'democracy'?  Of course not one of them have any concept of what democracy is.  Greece gave them a punch in the gut to show them what democracy should be.
As for who pays for these 'eminent persons'--look in the mirror!!!  These 'eminent persons' do not have to be elected in a 'democracy'.  They are the more equal who will tell the serfs how to live.

The Eminent Person's Group report, A Commonwealth of the People: Time for Urgent Reform, commissioned by heads of government at Port-of-Spain in 2009...
Harper's engagement on the priorities of human rights, the rule of law and democracy and his determination to keep up the fight actually led to the delaying of his departure from Perth. Our foreign minister, John Baird, deployed his endless reservoir of energy, eloquence and passion on issues like human rights, Sri Lanka and the EPG report itself....
The Heads got down to business Saturday afternoon on the EPG recommendations and put their foreign ministers and senior officials back to work as well. In the end, 31 recommendations were accepted outright...
