10:25 MDT (12:25 am ET): President Obama delivers remarks at Community College of Aurora, Lowry, Colorado
What Ho! Amk, WTG!
Congrats amk :-)
Well… if it isn’t our intrepid engineer! Well done, Sir! :-D
Thanks youse guyz and chips for that pic.
I am no. 1 today for another reason too. I’ll let you all ponder on that. ;)
Or am I about, ooooh, eight months out?
If not: HAPPY BIRTHDAY FELLA!!!!!!
Oooh, the whole family turned up. This has made my day.
Thank you so much, Chips.
The happiest of birthdays to ya!!
A very Happy Birthday, AMK! That cake and the people delivering it are just perfect for the spirit and energy you share every day with all of us who support this incredible President. Since it’s almost 7PM here on the West Coast (I know it’s morning your time) I will drink a toast in honor of your birthday. I have no doubt that you will enjoy your day fully.
Thanks, nath. I will share that toast.
happy B-day to our tireless warrior and sometimes troublemaker.
(It’s nice to be able to do this. I’m usually 19+ hrs too late to wish ppl happy b-day on this blog.)
Thanks LS. Why only sometimes ? :)
usually don’t get on till late at nite and everyone’s pretty much gone.
Happy Birthday Amk. Enjoy your day and everyday afterwards.
Thanks a bunch Sonjia.
Thanks theo. Where have you been today?
I went out with friends all day (trying to have a semblance of a life), which ended up being a mistake this close to the election, since many of them are one percentin’ Republicans. I’ve now caught up with the day’s events and I’m back on track.
Congrats on 1st and HAPPY BIRTHDAY amk!!!!!
Thanks a bunch, Bob. Is turning 53 is still middle age or officially over the hill?
Kaput. Sorry. But do your best :lol:
sez you. It ain’t over the hill until I say so.
Happy birthday, amk. Don’t worry about the age. You’re “practically a baby” compared to me!
Thanks job. I do act like a baby. So sez the wifey unit. :)
Middle age is late 80s in my book … over the hill is when they bury you :)
:lol: Love it Bob!!
egg.sack.lee, Bob. My kinda guy. :)
Now I know why I like you so much Bob! No quitting in you. BTW AMK, at 53 you are still a youngster. Just less than 2 years older than POTUS. And you see how the ladies here still go crazy about him.
Good evening nath!! :)
53??!!! why you don’t look a day over 90!
****ducks & runs behind ChipsChica****
The story of my life.
Happy, happy birthday, amk!
It’s near the top……On the backside. Happy, happy young man. :lol: :lol:
Thanks Sailor. Today’s drinks are on me. :)
Just don’t tell vc.
My lips are sealed ’til I get me grog!
Happy Birthday AMK! And here’s to many more! :D
Thanks alice. Let’s bring me my real present tomorrow night. :)
I suppose it’s tomorrow where you are! Yes I’ll be hoping that you get what you really want too! :-)
(Alice, it’s probably 2093 where he is)
Wooooo. the fuuuuuuchtaaah. Hey AMK do we have flying cars yet? I want a flying car. My parents were promised this in the 60’s. They haven’t come yet.
AND the 4th anniversary of him being smoke-free! I don’t know why I thought it was tomorrow! :oops: As soon as I wrote that I realized it IS tomorrow now for you and I was right.
Happy Birthday, dear Pardner! Happy Birthday to you! And I can go to sleep and come back later and wish you another wish. ;) This straaddling of both worlds seems nice at times like these..
See, I quit one bad thing 4 years back. (thanks for remembering that). That should be enough for a lifetime, no?
‘That should be enough for a lifetime, no?’
Groan…a pre-emptive strike! How did you know I was getting ready to suggest you quit something else on this 4 year anniversary?
Just kidding. Have a truly wonderful day, Amk – all 24 hours of it!
Congrats on the quitting! Good for you.
OMG! Happy Birthday, amk:) Cheers to you, big guy!
HAPPY BRITHDAY, AMK!!!!!
Congrats on being 4yrs smoke-free. That’s my next goal.
PBO was the inspiration for me. The best decision I made.
Happy Birthday AMK!
Happy Birthday AMK
Thank you pf. You still owe me a shot of your pretty foot, despite this vid. :)
Sit down …AMK…..smilin…
Happy happy birthday. Hope you are feted all day! Thanks for all your fierce support for our great President. In 48.5 hours you will have a second birthday gift as we all celebrate four more for 44!
Thanks taiping. Yup, 4 more years for 44 will be the bestest b’day present for me.
Diggin’ this picture!
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday to a beautiful spirit, our own Amk. May your celebration be one to never forget. HZ

Then, the Pres heads to Des Moines for his final campaign rally of 2012. By my count, his 101st. He'll be introed there by the First Lady.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) November 05, 2012
This will be an emotional rally – his final one in this campaign, and for himself.
An emotional one for him and Michelle, Iowa and for all of us.
That’s really sweet and classy of him to finish off where it all started.
Happy Birthday AMK … hope you are celebrating by having some ‘string-hoppers’
Thanks Jey. Yes, we will have Idiappam as they are called.
We indians are the best when it comes to coolest ways to make the tastiest and juiciest veg food. We rule that world.
Amk I had no idea it was your birthday! Happy Birthday and hope you are having a blast so far!
Thanks hf. The blast hour can’t start too early. wifey’s order.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, amk!! Soooooo nice of you to invite the First Family!
LOL. Thanks meta. They were gracious as always.
… LOL … Indian food served on a banana leaf – is just pure awesome… don’t forget the ‘sothee’ … my favourite was always the mutton curry and Idiappam… used to be staple on Deepavali day.
I hope you can incorporate some sight-seeing. My sis was in SL in August (vacay), she and her family had a good time.
Yes, Indeed! I am so grateful to the people of Iowa who defied pundits in 2008 and decided to bet on this decent man. I have this feeling that Iowa and the other so called battleground states will do exactly the same thing on Nov. 6th by voting to re-elect him.
is that tomorrow?
just watching pbo giving his rally speeches the past couple of days, and thinking, this is it–the energy, the passion, the crowds and music and hugs and ss guys– i’m going to miss watching pbo campaign! he’s so good, but i know he’s so tired and ready for the election. we all are–it’s been a long and furious campaign. but i’ll miss this–seeing him every day this way, surrounded by huge crowds of devoted followers.
my thoughts exactly. i am sad that i won’t be seeing him campaigning like this again.
I’m already tearing up.
he’s actually been counting? I didn’t think he could count that high. Silly me!
Does anyone know where I can get a play list from these rallies. I heard a song today at Biden’s rally that just turned my heart upside down and back up again for what these two guys are doing to move the US forward. Is it possible to love them more? Sure. If you know…please help.
So freaking tweeted! Love his confidence and joy as we near election day.

And these are the morons who bitch and moan about their “freedom”.
Yep. And they got the Seamus treatment today in PA – ironic to say the least
I’m sorry I’m not laughing at the peeps but the situation. I’m laughing so hard I’m crying. The comments were hilarious.
Jeff just cracks me up. I would love to shake his hand! He’s been a consistent, highly vocal, always on message advocate these past couple of years. I have thoroughly enjoyed his tweets, both the analysis and the ridicule and the humour. Priceless.
If what they’re saying is true, this is one more sign of an INCOMPETENT campaign. They’re not helping their candidate one bit. Wow.
Why would people in Pennsylvania feel the need to attend a Romney rally? Is he even close in the polls?
And then he refuses to let them leave!
Wow. Just wow.
POTUS has one more rally tonight in Aurora, CO.
Then tomorrow it’s on to WI, OH and finishing up in IA with FLOTUS.
THEN, on to Chicago on Tuesday to await the returns.
The GOP may have done more than just ‘awaken the sleeping giant’ with this voter suppression stuff … the next two days are likely to be intense …
My ancestors were lynched,beat,bombed in order for me to vote. So yes, we will stand in line to cast our vote no matter how long the wait!— Kim (@girly1121) November 04, 2012
Kim, I feel the exact same way.
That’s exactly the way I feel. No body is going to stop me from voting on Tuesday. In fact I plan to be there first thing in the morning when the polls open because I was not able to take a day off on Tuesday as I planned.
Okay, full attention now back on the Seal 6 movie. Our President is so boss in this flick. The scene contrasting him with John McCain is priceless. Barack Obama knew what he was gonna do, and he did it.
PJ, since we haven’t had a tv/cable in more than 20 years, this is one of the very few things in all those years I would want to view and apparently can’t, online. If you or anyone can provide details, after you’re finished viewing it, please do.
I will definitely see what I can find out, Bob!

ROFLMAO Excellent commentary / description

CHIPS do u know what time the iowa rally will be on tomorrow? Thanks
Don’t know if this is going to work, posting Facebook links is iffy, but I think all of Al Giordano’s posts are public, so I’ll give it try. This is his EV map. 319 O/ 219 R http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151152256542968&set=a.487653877967.263753.587992967&type=1&theater
Cool. Go Al.
(Can’t see the post though.)
Tien Le – can you provide us the primary message? Thank you
try this: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151152256542968&set=a.487653877967.263753.587992967&type=1
rats, that didn’t work either. Just try going to his facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/algiordano
How do you get to see his entries on Facebook. All I get is his bios but not his posts. Miss his commentary especially since he has not been posting on The Field.
I was lucky enough to be in on the ground floor when he first got his Facebook page. I’m bummed you can’t see his posts. Darn it.
Thanks for sharing this, Tien Le. I deeply respect Al Giordano’s political knowledge and instinct, but I am convinced that the President will win Florida if there are no shenanigans by Gov. Scott to steal the votes. I am glad Al agrees with me that the President will again win North Carolina. Most people have conceded NC to Romney. I am not one of them. The numbers about early voting suggest that the President will once again win this state. I also think that Arizona, like Indiana in 2008, may be a major surprise this year because of Latino/Hispanic enthusiasm. I wish OFA had enough resources to do a massive GOTV in Arizona. On my Electoral Map, I have AZ as a toss-up state.
I hope a lot of People are watching this movie and how far the SEALs, Panetta and the President put their Necks on the line?
Just incredible! No winder the right wingers, don’t want this public!
Watched it and it was good.
PBO is on AF1. Looks like Marty Nesbitt following him up the stairs afterwards. Odd, cuz I thought President always gets on last, but don’t know where I got that from?
There’s often people who get on AF1 after POTUS, including the people carrying bags, his advisors, etc. I think the plane is just ready to leave as soon as the President is on board, so they start getting ready to take off.
Monday – need to check details and times:
All times ET
11:45: PBO delivers remarks at a campaign event.
12:15: VP Biden and Jill Biden delivers remarks at a campaign event at Claude Moore Park in Sterling, Va.
4:10: PBO delivers remarks at a campaign event at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
7:00: VP Biden and Jill Biden deliver remarks at a campaign event at the American Civil War Center in Richmond, Va.
10:50: PBO and Michelle Obama deliver remarks at a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa.
The rally in Iowa will be all tears.
I’m not sure I’ll be able to watch BWD, seriously.
I don’t think I could afford the truckload of Kleenex that I’d need.
Ah, the same here Dudette.
You are a GEM chips!!! Thanks so much
Air Force One about to taxi out to runway…
Ugh! Why did they put the Seal Team Six movie on NatGeo and not on the History Channel?! :(
Lisa I can tell that you are not letting this go – and with good reason! I would be pissed too if I were in your shoes where the airing of this movie is concerned.
any idea how we can watch it later on? there’s no info on the natgeo website.
It will be available to Netflix members after Nov 5. I don’t know if the movie will be shown on cable channels elsewhere.
Because the history channel sucks.
At least it’s accessible. :|
all they ever seem to have is holocaust stuff and WWII.
HOLYFUCKINGSHIT FBI, CIA and Foreign Intelligence Agencies “Leak” Romney Files veteranstoday.com/2012/11/01/rom… #WhyImNotVotingForRomney = CRIMINAL— Tally Briggs (@bardgal) November 05, 2012
tally, this just seems so unlikely—robmey running a terrorist network with a kgb-issued passport? mixing it up with castro in cuba? he’s too self-absorbed, imo, to put himself at personal risk.
He has enough $$$$$ to be risk free. Seriously.
well, that’s certainly true. just can’t get the james bond music out of my head, now, and with robmey’s ugly mug replacing sean connery’s handsome visage–well, i may not forgive you for this!! :)
HAAAAAAAAAAA. I understand. Apologies!!!
Here, allow me to cleanse your brainstem and more importantly, HORMONES, with a far more appealing Bond (Daniel Craig…. mmmmmm):
Welp, I know where I’ll be spending one of my 3 days off next weekend.
This and Hobbit will be my only forays into a theatre this year, aside from the 2 wasted hours I’ll never get back with Prometheus.
I’m still going to get Prometheus from Netflix. Some things you just have to experience for yourself.
Ridley is someone I dream of working with. Prometheus is GORGEOUS. Everyone in it is superb especially the überyummy Fassbender. That said, it’s the most ridiculous script ever, with smart scientists making one unbelievably stupid decision after another just to advance the plot. The fly light years to the planet with only GROUND VEHICLES. no, really. Even the original Star Trek had shuttles for fuck sake. If you can get past the insultingly stupid script, you might have fun. I felt sorry for the cast.
Unlike the horrid theatrical release of Kingdom of Heaven – and the BRILLIANT directors cut which is a completely wonderful movie with 45 bonus minutes that makes the whole thing make sense….. Prometheus made me want to shake R. Scott. But I still would love to work with him.
It was playing on Directv recently, and after I watched it, I knew I would have been furious if I’d paid full price in the theater. It was entertaining, though, if you leave your brain checked at the door.
Yeah, Prometheus was pretty awful.
i’ll always be a sean fan! my first date, when i went out with a boy in a car, he took me to see goldfinger, at the orinda theater. clunky-licious!
Think about it – What WOULDN’T Romney do for MONEY?
My husband is watching the Seal Team 6 movie. I keep hearing him say to me LAST August (one of our few political discussions): “He is no leader.” HOW could anyone say that, especially after seeing this???? I am beyond proud to support this man and OUR leader!!!!
proud of YOU tn! keeping the faith when those around you scoff, is a sign of courage and character!
What does your hubby say NOW? :D :D :D
I haven’t ask him tonight. Works better if I find the right time. I figure the less said until after Tuesday night the better. I’ve been planning some things to say. One of those is that I know that history will show PO to be one of, if not the greatest president….certainly the greatest in the past few decades and will add that I hope I live to see and be able to understand that fact. I’m still thinking about other things I want to say.

oooh, Thanks Dudette. Finally something worthy of my status.
Thanks for the reminder guys about Seal Team Six! Just set the DVR for the 8pm one. William Fichtner is so sexy! I see him sometimes at my car wash.
He scares me – he plays the bad guys way too well…
He’s hotter in person. :D
I never recognize these celebrities in person, until later.

POTUS need every vote. We can’t walk away frustrated, we can’t let them win. They want us to walk away frustrated and not vote, but we can’t do that. We can’t do that. A vote not cast for President Obama, is for cast for that liar Mitt Romney.
Hey all! I’m back from my non-stop campaign quarantine. I went to Norfolk, VA for the weekend and did 4 canvassing shifts and 1 phonebank. Everything went awesome! I really think VA is going to stay blue because of all the hard work and dedication from our teams. The college team alone knocked on 45,000 doors and made over 20,000 phone calls this weekend. However, the highlight of my trip was yesterday. I knocked on a lady’s door. She was 70 years old and when I asked her if she was planning to vote for President Obama she said she wasn’t sure and was thinking about not voting. I asked why? She told me about how she was concerned about the things she was hearing about the debt. She also told me that she didn’t like Romney and his views on women. I explained to her how PBO had to take emergency measures to save the economy and that he wants to reduce our debt in a balanced way. Then, she invited me inside her home because she had more questions. She told me she is on social security and medicaid, and she didn’t know that Ryan’s budget would cut her benefits significantly. We talked for about a half-hour. To make a long story short, I convinced her to vote for PBO on Tuesday! She seemed so relieved that I was willing to explain the issues to her.
I’m so proud of all the hard work we’re putting in these last few days. I’m 100% confident PBO will be reelected. Our ground game is phenomenal.
WOOOOOOOOOT!!!! YOU ROCK STAR GODDESS YOU!!!!
Awesome work collegekay! You’ve done that woman and the country a great service! I’m very proud of you and grateful for the work you and all the other outstanding volunteers have done. You deserve a standing “O” :-D
Thank you for the hard work you all do, Thank you, thank you, thank you.
That’s AWESOME ck – thanks for your excellent work with OFA!
Way to go Collegekay! I am just so impressed with all the smart young people supporting President Obama. It’s young people like you, CK, who are the future of this country. Some of my fellow senior citizens supporting Romney are trying to take the country backward to the so called good old days that were not so good for many of us.
Way to go CK!!!!!!!!!
Virginia is going to be ours!!!!
Great job CK. Your hard work is surely appreciated. THank you.
CK, I had a woman from IA a couple of weeks ago when phonebanking with many of the same type of questions although not the debt issue. She was very confused on the interaction with Obamacare, Medicaid and Medicare. I spoke with her for about 20 mins and at the end she agreed it was a good idea to vote for PBO. These interactions are so rewarding! Thanks for everything you’ve done!
OMG CK that’s great work! #OBAMABYALANDSLIDE
Here is the BIG MOVIE (the GOP whined about) that’s coming in December about Seal Team Six:
Looks really good. Have to see it just for the reason that the GOP whined about it.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMK!!!
Of course, what’s funny about NatGeo showing the Seal Team 6 movie is that… wait for it… NatGeo is OWNED BY RUPERT MURDOCH!!! So, savor that for a moment.
see tally’s comment above: what would he not do for money?
Money is a drug worse than crack. Once you hit a certain level of wealth, you just want more, chasing that original high.
Happy Birthday Amk ;)
Thanks ck. You bring me the best b’day present tomorrow night, no?

Chris Christie Says He’ll Vote For Mitt Romney, Defends Obama Praise
JERUSALEM, Nov 4 (Reuters) – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie defended his praise for President Barack Obama’s support after superstorm Sandy, but said he would stick with his Republican ticket and vote for Mitt Romney in this Tuesday’s election.
Obama “provided help to my people at one of the worst crises that this state has ever faced,” Christie added. “When somebody does a good job, they deserve credit.”
“Anybody who is upset in the Republican Party about this, they haven’t been to New Jersey. Come see the destruction, come see the loss.”

Yet I’ll vote for the guy that would have said FU to NJ. No words
No surprise here.
I wouldn’t have expected him to vote for anyone but Romney – after all he was Romney’s keynote speaker AND he’s a Republican. Also, even if he were to vote for Obama, it would be political suicide to say publicly that he’s NOT voting for Romney.
this – like those wives who say they are voting for Romney
This is what I reckon, HF, he is so going to vote for PBO, but no way does he not anyone thinking that, and his vote is protected.
SNL went to town on it –
Yup, as soon as I saw Democrats lining up behind Chris Christie and lifting him up as though he had changed his ways, I was just waiting for this roll-back. He’s a GOPer, through and through. This doesn’t surprise me at all.

Yes it is. It is a very big deal ….
“Tis one for the history books. At the end of early voting on Saturday, 49.7% of all registered African American voters in NC had cast their votes. And of those votes, 61% came from WOMEN. By contrast, turnout among White voters was only 38.7%.
The person who deserves much of the credit for mobilizing the African American community is Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, President of the North Carolina NAACP. He delivered a powerful GOTV speech during this year’s NC NAACP State Conference”
Chips, would be great if you could highlight this in one of your next posts.

I’ve been catching up and reading collegekay’s report. it seems completely off the planet (Mars?) that with current technology and media people do not know the truth as to the policies PBO vs Romney. That ANYONE thinks R&R would be good for SS/Medicare/Medicaid is an absolute media fail – and very sad. CK has done a wonderful job by carefully explaining the truth – why is this so hard for the media to do.
I understand people voting against their own interest when they KNOW the facts (they may think there is a greater need elsewhere) but voting when they either don’t know, or believe the opposite to the facts seems to be what the likes of Chuck Todd want people to do.
And although I shouldn’t mention the name – looking at some online MSNBC promotions – Old Chuck seems to think he is the President – striding up the path to the Whitehouse – I am so looking forward to his suffering Tues/Wed

So I go off to do a few chores after work, come back to find the whole blog partying and celebrating amk on his 153rd burfday! Chipsticks, what kinda joint are you runnin’ here, anyhoo? Happy Happy Birthday to you, amk! First and all……
I53?! What kinda old ass man are you amk?
I know Cman, it’s a wonder he even knows how to use a ‘puter.
Guess I am curmudgeonly enough to be I53, cman.
LOL. Thanks Pamela. I have been asking chips the same question.
Although I am late to your party AMK, here is wishing you a very happy birthday. You bring laughter into
my life with your great sense of humour and I thank you for that as well as all your hard work for our PREZ.
second that! your humor and intelligence have been a cheery constant on tod. have a wonderful year!
Thanks H44. I dread the day when I will turn into a curmudgeon. :)
(Oh yeah, that would be a frightful day :lol: )
Happy birthday amk, and good night folks. Another day of working to get this wonderful man to keep that seat.
Why are so many people saying they are late to Amk’s party? You are all early – Amk has just started his birthday as far as I understand it. I believe it’s around 8ish-9isham where he is, so you all have time before lunch to get him a present. I’ll collect them on his behalf. :) ;)
Happy Birthday Amk!!
It’s not the years in your life that count, It’s the life in your years. Live them to the fullest!
And living life the fullest. Certain peeps are against that. Like wifey unit, vc…. :)
Curiously enough it’s because we want you to live life to the fullest that we rant about too much alcohol consumption. Wouldn’t want the liquid to take you off too soon (because no one else will buy me dresses). BTW, as a birthday present I’ll not say another word about your liquid propensities for the rest of your special day. ;)
The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans. On the other hand, the French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans.
The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or the Americans.
Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like. It’s speaking English that kills you.
All kidding aside, contrary to the ‘conventional wisdom’ here, I am not that much of a drinker. So, don’t worry.
‘Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like.’ This reminds me of my grandmother who had this theory that ‘everything gives you cancer’ so she was going to eat whatever she enjoyed or felt like eating at any given time and in whatever quantity she desired, and to h_ _ _ with the doctor’s advice. Of course she was also a proponent of the theory that we all have to die so why sweat it.
That’s what we call a “circular” argument…with a huh?
I’m so trying to stay awake for Seal Team Six that airs at 10pm here. I want to see and hear PBO’s last campaign speech tonight as well. I don’t think I’ll make it. I’m nearly falling asleep in my chair. Thank goodness for modern technology, I’ll catch it all tomorrow.
Happy birthday to the young whipper snapper AMK!!!!! A return in kind for your birthday:
A truck driver was driving along on the freeway and noticed a sign that read: Low Bridge Ahead. Before he knows it, the bridge is right in front of him and his truck gets wedged under it. Cars are backed up for miles.
Finally a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, ‘Got stuck, huh?’
The truck driver says, ‘No, I was delivering this bridge and I ran out of gas.’
LOL. Thanks cm. Both for the joke and calling me young. Eat that, Chips.
Only if it’s a Cheesy Puff, creaky joints.

Chips. Email. NEA photo. Did you get my email?
Let’s try it this way: https://twitter.com/tienle47/status/265301561993994240
Well done!!! RT’d (though I think we will win FL) :)
We’ll get FL before we get NC. But, we might get both. :-D
Yup. We will.
Wow! Happy Bday AMK! 53? Are you as grey as POTUS ?
Yup, I am as grey as that kenyan. It all happened after I signed up for this place.
(Ok, not so much, I am 40% grey).
Whoa! Sharp short earthquake in L.A.!
Stay steady out there. We need y’all’s feet planted firmly on the ground. Better, we need the ground firmly planted under your feet. Take care.
Hmmm, only a 2.4 and several kilometers deep…you must have spidey senses, dude.
Hey, the house shook! The epicenter must’ve been close to me. Even wifey felt it.
Yep, the quake was pretty much right beneath me.
wat? not big enough to make it to NoHo, so it was nothing.
Maybe you just dropped your highball? ;)
You know I love you…. :D
It was pretty much right beneath me. http://www.data.scec.org/recenteqs/Quakes/ci15241329.html
ah HA! nice work. ;)
I don’t mind too much if I’m awake. It’s when I’m sleeping they freak me the fuck out!
I seriously can’t believe the outpouring of love and affection here for Amk. I mean, WTF?
clownly love. :)
getting green does not an irish make.
:lol: Top ‘o the birthday mornin’ to ya!
I need to hear that lilting irish greeting.
fergodsake, don’t sing it.
You asked for it buster – this is my 1971 chart-topper:
Jeez, she sounds mannish not irish.
/ducks and runs.
:shock: That was me at my girliest stage, Mister.
Too much drinkin’ smokin’ in irish pubs would do that to your voice.
You know whose voice I find the sexiest ? Suzanne Pleshette.
Well I got not a peep out of him in response to my musy-melancholy dedication above. So fuck that… this one seems more appropriate on a number levels… :-) :-) :-)
Okay, now I need a truck-load of tissues to dry my eyes :lol:
Chips, can you really imagine TOD without AMK? Of course there are many special people here, besides you and AMK, who spice up this place. We will hopefully celebrate their birthdays when their time comes. But in all honesty, you have to admit that AMK is special. He combines a killer sense of humor, genuine love and respect for women, and fearless devotion to President Obama. So, what’s there not to love?
My birthday was yesterday I’m 33
happy happy birthday jeff! hope you have a wonderful year! and your birthday present: pbo re-elected tuesday!!
Happy birthday, Jeff!
Off to sleep, but caught this. Happy belated Jeff, you young man you :-D Chips makes it hard to sign off here, but I’m gone for real :-D
Oi EDP4BHO, get back here right now – one more rally to go! :-)
Oi yourself. Dang, you caught me still lurking :-D. Watching Ed and getting sicker and sicker of this campaign, but did read the Smerconish piece. Personally I don’t like him as he is still dead set about Mumia Abdul Jamall getting the death penalty, even co-wrote a book on it. But he is exactly right in that Philly piece. His listeners are pissed with him…..Love’in it !! Night again….maybe?
Happy b’day jeff. Have a blast.
You too shall get there. :)
Happy Birthday, Min !!!!!!!! Many more!
Thanks PJ. We men indeed. :)
Happy Birthday to you, too, Jeff!!!

Jeff! A very belated Happy Birthday! 33? You’re a baby!
Happy Birthday WEEK, Jeff! Hope it’s the best ever!
Happy birthday Jeff and AMK – gosh I felt old with the young AMKs birthday & now very young Jeff
I need to modify BobFr’s comment – middle age is somewhere above 88
Great to get the best ever present come Tuesday
Happy Birthday Jeff! Hope your day was wonderful.
I’d post ya a video but not sure what music you like.
Happy (belated) Birthday, Jeff – I hope it was a great day!
Happy Birthday Jeff! I hope you had a wonderful day filled with love and happiness.

Let's go CO MT @matthewamiller: Huge crowd to see POTUS in Denver tonight, & thousands more still making their way in http://t.co/FkI7DRW6— Brent Colburn (@cbrentcolburn) November 05, 2012
He’s working soooo hard! :cry: :cry: :cry:
I hope — and trust —- that the crowd in Colorado gives him so much love and energy that it carries him through the next 48 hours. I’m sending all my positive vibes his way. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
And don’t forget, this weekend was the anniversary of losing his grandmother – which must be even more bittersweet.
WOW!, just WOW!
Happy birthday AMK…many more.
a very happy birthday to amk!
and jeff too!
Thanks cluny. Don’t worry, we are winning this thing
HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! OMG – check out this trend on TWITTER:
Liberal media lies! Ears of enemies hanging from Romney's neck were NOT purchased this afternoon at local funeral homes! #RomneyDeathRally— Angry Jake (@Angry_Jake) November 05, 2012
Happy Birthday Amk!
Here is a little medley of the Irish decent for ya!
Thanks joy. Nice medley.
The Concord speeches:
TY Chips – is there another rally today? or was this the last one? I don’t know how either of them can keep it going – but wow they make each rally better than the last
Colorado coming up.
At this of the night ? It’s close to midnight.
TY Tally – I see the new thread now
@johnpaul530 DOW has doubled, FEMA is FIXED, Bin Laden is DEAD, GM = PROFIT. If that is FAIL, I'll take 4 more years. FACTS MATTER. #FORWARD— Tally Briggs (@bardgal) November 05, 2012
My kittehs are so good at what day it is, and what TIME it is. Until this day every year. They really hate going back to Standard Time, because dinner is an hour late. “FEED ME MUMMY!!!”
I always find it amazing how animals have a built in clock. My dog use to start about 20 mins early every day. And I didn’t dare say the word “suppertime” or all hell would break lose. :-)
They even know when it’s the weekend, because on Caturday and Caturday II, they get soft food three times including breakfast.
Wake up! New post:
Happy Birthday Jeff for yesterday and amk4obama for today :) also to anyone else out there I may have missed!!
Happy Birthday Jeff!
Happy Birthday Amk
You are a bright star shining among the constellation of TODers.
