      Yes, it’s very good. It was so good in fact, that I basically pasted the entire post over at The People’s VIew…they have a troll that because PBO signed NDAA, that he is Hitler. Seriously? A clicked on his avatar and saw that he’s a “disgruntled Dem that supports Mike Gravel and Ron Paul….” What the fuck ever. You know, they hear what they WANT to hear, see what they WANT to see….Facts be damned!

          People have NO CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS. My pet peeve. I don’t have to have everyone I meet agree with me, but I DO need for them to be able to take all the info available to them , weigh pros and cons and think things through in a logical way. That doesn’t seem to be in abundance.Instead, they ignore the parts that are inconvenient truths to further their grand delusions.

    • December 31, 2011 at 9:13 pm

      My pleasure guys. :lol: We have to keep each other on top of the facts so that we can be effective in putting the TRUTH out there when the opportunities arise. IMO SP always does a good job with analysis and with resourcing her arguments, and she sometimes touches on areas others haven’t yet, or with a slightly different, or more clarified viewpoint.

      I happen to believe that in 2012 serious Pres O supporters are going to join hands across the blogosphere in a meaningful way to shut out the naysayers with truth – just the FACTS. My dream is that very few [if any] of us will be as derailed by red herring commentators as we were this year; that we will brush them off quickly a la Pres O, and counter with the facts in a mature, calm, ‘professional’ way. Show the pundits or faux journalists how to do their jobs in fact. :razz:

      So bring on 2012! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012
      YES. WE. CAN. YES WE MUST. YES WE WILL! …………It’s no exaggeration to say our future is at stake.

    Final Des Moines Register Poll—-Romney 24, Paul 22, Santorum 15, Gingrich 12, Perry 11, Bachmann 7
    If the final 2 days of polling were the only consideraton, Santorum moved into 2nd place with 21 with Paul dropping to 3rd place—–Romney remained at 24.
    41% said they could change mind.

      Dotster, I had one of my earlier comments go for a cyber walk, right after and before another posted just fine. So it wasn’t because I wasn’t logged in. I ignored it and it later appeared and slotted itself into the right spot. Go figure! Press on, ;)

    To all my “family” at The Obama Diary,

    I post the following video for those of us (myself included…) who don’t know some of the things that have happened in this country, these United States of America, that we love so deeply.

    I don’t want it to be a “downer” I want it to be a MOTIVATOR for why we must fight about voter suppression, why we must work to get health care for ALL, why we must support REAL PUBLIC EDUCATION FOR ALL, and most of all, why we must love one another, to work thru our problems and differences.

    Happy New Year for 2012!! Celebrate! But also remember that we have SO MUCH WORK TO DO!! Fired UP!

      http://www.nbbd.com/godo/moore/ballad.html

      This ballad was written by Mr. Langston Hughes

      Ballad of Harry Moore

      (Killed at Mims, Florida, on Christmas night, 1951)

      Florida means land of flowers.
      It was on Christmas night
      In the state named for the flowers
      Men came bearing dynamite.

      Men came stealing through the orange groves
      Bearing hate instead of love,
      While the Star of Bethlehem
      Was in the sky above.

      Oh, memories of a Christmas evening
      When Wise Men traveled from afar
      Seeking out a lowly manger
      Guided by a Holy Star!

      Oh, memories of a Christmas evenin
      When to Bethlehem there came
      “Peace on earth, good will to men”–
      Jesus was His name.

      But they must’ve forgotten Jesus
      Down in Florida that night
      Stealing through the orange groves
      Bearing hate and dynamite.

      It was a little cottage,
      A family, name of Moore.
      In the windows wreaths of holly,
      And a pine wreath on the door.

      Christmas, 1951,
      The family prayers were said
      When father, mother, daughter,
      And grandmother went to bed.

      The father’s name was Harry Moore.
      The N.A.A.C.P.
      Told him to carry out its work
      That Negroes might be free.

      So it was that Harry Moore
      (So deeply did he care)
      Sought the right for men to live
      With their heads up everywhere.

      Because of that, white killers,
      Who like Negroes “in their place,”
      Came stealing through the orange groves
      On that night of dark disgrace.

      It could not be in Jesus’ name,
      Beneath the bedroom floor,
      On Christmas night the killers
      Hid the bomb for Harry Moore.

      It could not be in Jesus’ name
      The killers took his life,
      Blew his home to pieces
      And killed his faithful wife.

      It could not be for the sake of love
      They did this awful thing–
      For when the bomb exploded
      No hearts were heard to sing.

      And certainly no angels cried,
      “Peace on earth, good will to men”–
      But around the world an echo hurled
      A question: When?…When?….When?

      When will men for sake of peace
      And for democracy
      Learn no bombs a man can make
      Keep men from being free?

      It seems that I hear Harry Moore.
      From the earth his voice cries,
      No bomb can kill the dreams I hold–
      For freedom never dies!

      I will not stop! I will not stop–
      For freedom never dies!
      I will not stop! I will not stop!
      Freedom never dies!

      So should you see our Harry Moore
      Walking on a Christmas night,
      Don’t run and hide, you killers,
      He has no dynamite.

      In his heart is only love
      For all the human race,
      And all he wants is for every man
      To have his rightful place.

      And this he says, our Harry Moore,
      As from the grave he cries:
      No bomb can kill the dreams I hold
      For freedom never dies!

      Freedom never dies, I say!
      Freedom never dies!

    Have a good one and don’t forget ‘4 more for 44’!

    Just got back from our friends where we saw in the new year, we had a great time! going to bed now as I am still exhausted from last night’s little excursion to the emergency room. I really do not want a repeat of that so I am taking it easy for the next few days. Will be lurking and commenting here a little more in my enforced rest time.
    God bless you all.

    Thank you isonprize for that video. I love Sweet Honey On The Rock. It definitely was not a downer. I needed to reflect ans that just brought so s joy and pain(that is what we must endure). It is why we must not let this moment pass us by to re-elect President Obama. A lot of lives were sacrificed to be able to vote in these United States. In hindsight, I was a teenager in southern Ga. When SNCC marched in the brutal sun. As young as I was, I knew it was the right thing to do. I a having a difficult time understanding why these young people are endorsing Ron Paul.

    My racism meter is high when it comes to this looney tune. If they would take the time to listen to really listen and not go with his tickling their ears it what they WANT to hear, I.e. less government, legalize pot., when the smoke has cleared what surfaces is an “old racist”. The worse kind because they refuse to change and their hearts are fixed on hate.

    Thanks for that video. It made me think…….and feel……THIS NOT A GAME!

    As planet Earth rang in the new year, a different kind of countdown was happening at the moon.

    After a 3 ½-month journey, a NASA spacecraft flew over the moon’s south pole, fired its engine and dropped into orbit Saturday in the first of two back-to-back arrivals over the New Year’s weekend.

    Mission control at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory erupted in cheers and applause after receiving confirmation that the probe was healthy and circling the moon. An engineer was seen on closed-circuit television blowing a noisemaker to herald the New Year’s Eve arrival.

    Just adding a bit of humor on the eve: A man tried to pay for $476 worth of merchandise at Wal Mart with a million dollar bill he insisted was real. That would have been a hunk of change, eh?

        Chica, Happy New Year, you wonderful blog hostess, you!!! I wish you all the best in the year 2012, And the best of the best for this lovely haven of Obama Love that you have created on the interwebs. I know, I know, you are all humble and everything.

        But you really do the best job of showing the latest pictures, creating a place where folks can bring information, share ideas, have friendly disagreements and even swoon over the good looking man that is our President. Most of all, though, you provide a place of common sense, decency, and unwavering support for the President of the United States.

        I, for one, plan to work my tail off to get this man re-elected. I may even slack off my addiction to TOD. It’s hard to post and make phone calls at the same time!! :lol:

        Love you, Chica. Keep doing what you do oh so very well!!!

      • December 31, 2011 at 9:59 pm

        Chips Chica, Happy 2012!

        And PLEASE give you mom a big hug for me and tell her one of your commenters said ‘Happy New Year AND Thanks!’ I think she’ll understand. ;)

      iPad is a little too helpful sometimes with its amazing speed and predictive text, but you two will soon become synthetic, it will travel with you everywhere, and you will LOVE it, appreciating Steve Jobs more and more and more for making our communication simpler. Don’t forget to download the Kindle iPad App, it is super! Just have fun!

    Happy New Year my TOD Family. I am spending the night with my Mom in her new senior govt subsidized apartment. I am soooooo thankful to my government that helps the elderly live in a clean safe apartment and I gladly pay my taxes so that the youngsters get an education, get good jobs, who will pay taxes to take care of their elderly population (one day it will be me being taken care of).

    I am Fired UP to support my President and Vice President for a second term. I donated to President Obama yesterday and to Chips and Donna today and until November 2012!

    A happy, safe and fulfilling New Year to the entire The Obama Diary crew.

    I just sent off the year 2011 with a little something for Donna’s page, a little something for Chipstick’s page and a little something for Elizabeth Warren’s page. There is something affirming about countering the noise and nonsense coming from Mitt Romney, the listless media, Newt Paul, Ron Gingrich, the Governor of Jersey Shore, libertarian pundits posing as lefties and idol winners posing as informed voters.

    Goodbye to the noise that was 2011. Hello 2012, the year that hosts the second term of the greatest President, the greatest First Lady, the greatest Veep, the greatest First Daughters, greatest First Pup and the greatest First Supporters in my lifetime.

    A toast: to better days.

    Romney leads, Santorum closing in Iowa
    By Steve Benen

    As we discussed a few months ago, some polls matter more than others. In Iowa, the Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll is widely considered the gold standard for Hawkeye State polling, and therefore gets considerably more attention than other surveys in the state.

    And with that in mind, and the caucuses just a few days, here’s what the race for the Republican presidential nomination looks like in Iowa:

    1. Mitt Romney: 24% (up seven points since early December)
    2. Ron Paul: 22% (up four points)
    3. Rick Santorum: 15% (up nine points)
    4. Newt Gingrich: 12% (down 13 points)
    5. Rick Perry: 11% (up five points)
    6. Michele Bachmann: 7% (down one point)

    ………………………………………………

    “Momentum’s name is Rick Santorum,” said the Register’s pollster, J. Ann Selzer.

    …………………………………………………

    Best of all, there are still two days of campaigning to go, and 41% of likely caucusgoers “say they could still be persuaded to change their minds.”

    Ex-Democrat Rep, Voter ID Convert Artur Davis Says He Might Run As Republican
    Ryan J. Reilly- December 30, 2011, 5:17 PM

    After coming out in support of voter ID laws and donating to Republicans, former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis is continuing his march to the other side of the aisle, telling the Washington Post he could run for office as an independent or even a GOP candidate.

    “I’ve heard some people at the national level encouraging me to run as an independent for my old office,” Davis told WaPo’s Aaron Blake. “While there have been Democrats who have switched down there, the Republican Party has refused to accept them. Do I agree with the agenda items in the Alabama Republican Party? Some I agree with, and some I don’t.”

    Davis has claimed voter fraud is a major problem and said he’s seen it take place, though he’s repeatedly declined opportunities to back up his broad claims with specific allegations. Conservatives have used his change of heart to justify strict restrictions that most voting rights advocates agree could keep mostly Democratic-leaning voters from casting a ballot.

    “If you think I made it up, you’re entitled to do that, and if you think there’s no credibility and I just made it up because I had nothing to do some day, that’s your prerogative,” Davis previously told TPM.

    It’s been an eventful ride….thank you Chips for providing the bus!. Wishing all TODers a very happy, prosperous, healthy and successful 2012!!.
    The dress rehearsals are now over…the bombing run starts at the stroke of midnight. Let’s all rededicate and reenergize ourselves to the one thing that matters in 2012…reelecting Barack Obama and Joe Biden for another 4 year term.
    Stay safe tonight.
