      I don’t think it’s going to be televised (although I would be thrilled to see it on a bigger screen), but there is an Internet linky that Chips and others have provided.

        No just high winds up to 64mi/hr. Even my poor Megan doesn’t want to go out. The wind wants to pick her up and blow her away. They got a lot up in Duluth. I am in the southern part of the state.

    I think Michelle’s new do is fun and chic and “on trend”, but I hardly recognize her. That new style has completely changed her look. As I heard someone say, Michelle is full of surprises, and that is why so many admire her.

      Must be really tough knowing that a parent will be leaving for war soon and there’s a 50/50 chance you won’t see them again. I’m happy Joining Forces is not only doing all they can to ease their burden but also to highlight what military families go through on a daily basis.

    Cayman Islands to Disclose Tax Shelter Companies

    http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022220522

    Last edited Sat Jan 19, 2013, 05:20 PM USA/ET

    “After decades of secrecy, the tax-haven country is considering a public database that will make the names of thousands of previously hidden companies and their directors, public. CIMA, the three-islands’ monetary authority has outlined plans to create a public database of funds domiciled on the island for the first time, reports The Telegraph.

    The island nation is a group of three islands; Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac in the Western Caribbean Sea. The country is a British dependent territory and has gained popularity around the world for its offshore financial centre. The Cayman Islands is the world’s fifth (5th) largest financial off-shore centre for tax sheltering activities.

    Tax shelters have been described as helping to reduce tax liabilities, tax planning and asset protection. Many USA companies, including Facebook, have been using tax-shelters to avoid paying more taxes. Since the onset of the worldwide financial crisis, key financial regulatory institutions have been asking tax-haven countries to be more transparent in their operations.

    Hope Romney and friends have lots of clean undies. ”

      Yeah. It sounded so good I had to go look it up. I haven’t heard one of her songs in well over a year, so imagine my shock when I discovered I liked it!

      Living in Oklahoma, I know exactly what he’s talking about. Actually, some people see no connection between their love of guns and support for all guns all the time, and the massacres in Aurora, Newtown, or anywhere else. They always assume that couldn’t happen with them, and love their guns. They stoutly say that no assault weapon ban will make any difference in the number of deaths. Since they use their guns only for hunting, there is no connection.
      He is right to warn the urban and northern democrats about this issue.
      I despise guns. I refuse to go back to the church I’ve been a member of for 25 years because people carry guns to church, and so far there is no weapons ban posted on the door, but what Clinton said is absolute reality in these states. I’m glad he spoke out with a warning.
      Our governor, Mary Fallin, has publicly said she is going to take the weapons class so she can carry a gun…..now and after she’s out of office. With that role model, what do you expect!!!

      I don’t at all. I’m tired of having to bow down to this minority who are so obsessed with guns—–guns!!!!——that they can’t see straight to allow the rest of us any peace of mind with common sense gun legislation. It’s sick.

      He may be right about the rural areas. I can only speak about what I know. I live in a suburban Republican area, But the women here are not for guns, certainly not assault weapons. There may be one or two that moved here from the farm, but the majority of suburban women do not want guns around their children or around their schools. They are reachable. From what I understand the turnout is much lower in midterms. All we need to do is turn out the same friends who voted in the Presidential election. People who typically vote once every four years. I will spend the next two years quietly working on the wives. There is no point engaging with most of the guys or getting into arguments with conservatives as it would only be counter-productive in this situation.

    2 1/2 hour long concert. That was great. I’m so happy they got such a great dedicated concert/event at this inauguration. And all the performers were top notch. Unfortunately the feed got really bad at the end for me. Luckily the sound kept rolling.

    Fun concert

    “Our goal in the Civil Rights Movement was not to injure or destroy but to build a sense of community, to reconcile people to the true oneness of all humanity,” said Rep. John Lewis. “African Americans in the 60s could have chosen to arm themselves, but we made a conscious decision not to. We were convinced that peace could not be achieved through violence. Violence begets violence, and we believed the only way to achieve peaceful ends was through peaceful means. We took a stand against an unjust system, and we decided to use this faith as our shield and the power of compassion as our defense.

    “And that is why this nation celebrates the genius and the elegance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s work and philosophy. Through the power of non-violent action, Dr. King accomplished something that no movement, no action of government, no war, no legislation, or strategy of politics had ever achieved in this nation’s history. It was non-violence that not only brought an end to legalized segregation and racial discrimination, but Dr. King’s peaceful work changed the hearts of millions of Americans who stood up for justice and rejected the injury of violence forever.”

    – Congressman John Lewis (D-GA)

    Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) voiced support for many of the key proposals in President Obama’s plan on curbing gun violence in an interview on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” program, including closing the so-called gun show loophole and having criminal background checks for all guns sales.
