Happy Sunday, all!
Happy Sunday back, mary and everyone else.
Hi tnmtgirl, I’m just back from a powerful and uplifting sermon – I hope your day started on a high note too!
Congratulations on FIRST maryl1!
It’s nice to be first because then everyone replies and says hi!
Chips, I didn’t even know the Bidens were in Germany, before coming here. Thanks for being our MSM! Gettin’ to be Chips, the BBC, and AJE for me – all we can count on.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday, TOD! I’ll be at the mall, before and after halftime – Ha!
McCain is with them. That is why he was not on teevee today.
Not sure if you’re kidding, but keeping McCain off teevee is a Very.Good.Thing.
I promise. They were attending a conference.
Ewww. Anyway, maybe Uncle Joe would have a little chat with him! I realize it’s totally hopeless, but I’d like to be a fly on the wall for something like that. Joe would probably start out with, “Man … what the eff are you doin’?”
JOB, that’s about my round up too. BBC and AJE are good on international news, but this really is the best place to get an overview of everything. And Chips does it all from her heart, while the big media pull in major $$$. On the other hand, I’ll bet no other media chief has as much fun on the job as Chips does.
Agree, totally! Chips brings us gold every day! If they did an x-ray of her heart, they’d see a little gold mine in there! (Forgot to add Rev. Al, Martin Bashir, and Melissa Harris-Perry to my lineup of others who provide me with news, information, and analysis, on the teevee. And, some of the time, Lawrence O’Donnell.)
Congrats on 1st Mary!!!
Good job Mary. :raz:
Just can’t get anything right. :razz:
Just following in your footsteps!
Yesssss indeedy! Happy Sunday! Congratulations, maryl1.
I have been enjoying your tweets very much!
I’m pulling for coach Harbaugh!
You are guaranteed a win today!
Hola chicas y chicos!! Amigos y amigas!!! Tambien…..tambien..uuh…….that’s all I have.
Has Chips sneaked in, AND OUT, already? smh
VC how are you embedding your youtube videos in your tweets? are you hitting share… then copy and paste link to tweet?
I always do things the long way, LP. I hit ‘view media’, then when it comes up I hit ‘details’, then I copy the url. I bet you anything someone has a simpler way. ;) Mine doesn’t always show right away either.
:oops: That wasn’t what you asked me.
I actually copy the url of the video and paste it in the tweet. I never pay attention to the ‘share’ button. No fancy stuff for me! ;)
LOL, no worries. For some reason I have been embedding youtube videos forever in tweets the same way, and they show up fine in wordpress, but the last two days when my tweet posts, it just shows the link to the youtube video and not the video itself. Oh well!
Today in my twitter ‘chat away’, I’m hunting down vids of people who are speaking out for a plan for sensible gun use. If you find a short video dealing with this aspect of the issue, please share. People like LaPierre get lots of ‘air’ time with their unreasonable outcry so we can try to snag a wee bit of air time with the other viewpoint. This way we can at least help our contacts spread the fact that not every one feels like the nutjobs
#ITSTIME for a plan that curtails gun violence. America doesn't need an 'exceptionalism' label in THAT area! youtube.com/watch?v=xo873R…— Vick C. (@sonamie) February 03, 2013
LaPierre and his political buddies are well taken care of…. financially. The rest of the country needs to be heard.

Not sure why video didnt show in tweet, maybe I am doing it wrong. Any suggestions? Had been working for months the same way.
La pew makes me sick to my stomach…..
YOU ARE NOT ALONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have read he avoided the military during the Vietnam era because he had a “nervous condition”. After all these years he has not recovered from it.
Then La pew should not be allowed to own a gun if he has a mental condition. Funny how the “Elite” were allowed to not go and fight while the middle class and working poor kids HAD to go fight. If they Elite kids did go they got cushy jobs but did not face danger.
Interesting, given that he now thinks he’s the leader of a militia, preparing to fight their own government. He wasn’t prepared to defend his country, but now he’s working to destroy it? Despicable.
Wayne LaPierre is a dam jackass.
It’s probably just a coincidence that ole Wayne has Adolph Hitler hair?
#InAnEvidenceBasedWorld the answer to this nbcnews.to/VI3swB would not be 'more guns.' cc @Lawrence @PiersMorgan @VP #NowIsTheTime— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 03, 2013
Yes We Can
Dear @PiersMorgan After this nbcnews.to/VI3swB perhaps you should really re-think doing a show from a gun range, anywhere, let alone TX.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 03, 2013
What I don’t understand..why would Kyle take a vet with PTSD out to a shooting range (a form of treatment?), and then the vet with PTSD turns the gun on him and kills him and his buddy? I don’t understand????
Hi Carla, it’s impossible to understand because it was a senseless stunt. Totally unimaginable that anyone with PTSD would be placed in that type of REAL situation – and, this is something I know a lot about. Totally STUPID, so do not be the least concerned that you do not understand it.
Oopsie daisy, I only now noticed that the hashtag is #ItIsTime! One of these days I’ll read carefully before saying anything…maybe. :lol:
I went and looked and there’s both #s, so I feel better. :razz:
VC – I loved your transformation of #NowIsTheTime to #ItIsTime! In fact, it is WAY PAST time to put an end to the #CarnageForProfit gun & ammo industrial complex.
mary, VERY powerful sermon for me this morning too. The campus we usually attend (11:00) had to cancel because of snow so we went to one of our other campuses at 9:30. It was yet another WOW sermon and music today!!!!!!! We are blessed and blessed some more.
Elite or not, guns/bullets kill. Let’s push for solutions over platitudes.
Lapierre can talk all he wants about good vs bad guys with guns -Ignore the talk, #wethepeople want sensible solutions youtube.com/watch?v=ViTMjP…— Vick C. (@sonamie) February 03, 2013

Pres Obama back at the WH after watching daughter Sasha play for an hour in her basketball tournament. No skeet shooting today.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) February 03, 2013
Is that his normal facial expression?
I had a snarky response ready…something to do with a dozen donuts…but I shall refrain.
What a pathetic human he is
Well Duh!?!! He only skeet shoots while at Camp David. Was he suppose to shoot a clay pigeon out of the air over the kids heads at the game? I say for effect, PBO should enter the House chambers for his State of the Union address with a ground to air missile launcher and all sorts of other assault type weapons strapped to his back. Then through a mounted scope slowly scan the room. Once done, like Beyonce at her press conference, he would just ask, ‘any questions?’
btw, I don’t have a problem with Mark letting us in on PBO’s comings and goings, those little tidbits (meals, golf, bball outings) that we’d otherwise not know. However, the snark at the end of this one is a bit much.
Awwww…….fat boy didn’t get a chance to eat a whole barrel full of donuts today? :roll:
hack knoller in 2007:
“Some of the problems: You mention one, pack journalism. Whereby one or two or a couple reporters lead the way on the way a story is reported. We shouldn’t be influenced by one another. We ought to make our judgments independently.”
hilarious pontificating from this hack in that article, especially considering he almost can’t make a single comment on our president without using the latest fake talking point, such as the “skeet” comment above. the photo of knoller with that article is especially funny and appropriate. if i cared and had the time, i’d look at some of his writing during bush years, and see if he always had his constant jabs based on the latest republican (or would be democratic in that case) talking points. wonder how much he “reported” on the bush almost being killed by a pretzel, or the male prostitute posing as a journalist in the bush white house press corps, who was constantly called on to ask questions despite the jeff gannon/guckert never having been a journalist before.
The pack journalism drumbeat to war was disgusting. Did you hear anyone of them mention it? I heard Matthews once! Rachel wasn’t on TV, I don’t listen to radio. Can’t remember Olberman.
That is so nice of POTUS to make time for his daughters. I remember FLOTUS was on Michael and Kelly show talking about the way President Obama and VP Biden is when they are watching the girls play basketball. And President Obama even talking trash to the ref.
@markknoller Thought reporting on 1st children was no no. Y r u reporting now $ adding skeet shoot in it? You are a snake in the grass.
See I used $ instead of &. I am a disgrace at this. :oops:
How much do we want to bet that while President Obama is enjoying the SuperBowl with family and friends that someone somewhere who meant this nation harm is being annihilated by perhaps some of our top notch Navy Seals? Then our Beloved President Swag will stroll into that room where he announced the killing of Bin Laden and tell us what he gave the OK to. He is such a cool man.

What if the person David Keene’s son shot at had a gun and shot back at him and kill him.? Would it make a difference to something like David Keene’s?

Kasich (R-OH) is expanding Medicaid for 400,000 in his budget Monday. Dispatched Lt. to break it to R's in statehouse. dispatch.com/content/storie…— The lovely Plains (@DaRiverZkind) February 03, 2013
What’s up with Kasich and Jindal expanding Medicaid? In other words, what’s their individual and collective vested self-interest?
Our governor could learn a thing or two from Kasich. From what I read Jindal’s plan will rob one group of people to pay for another, so it’s really not an extension. Our minister today was talking about Christ’s ministry, and mentioned healing as one part of it, and then discussed Gov. Fallin cutting off 200,000 people from health care by refusing (paid for) Medicaid. He always takes the Bible lesson and applies it to modern life.
Good news for that 400,000 folks, families!
And isn’t it a shame that we don’t believe for a second that Kasich and Jindal actually give a damn about the people who will benefit from the expansion.
Yes, it’s a shame. I don’t personally believe they give a damn. It’s so offputting that my head explodes. I knew it had to be for their political gain, but I wasn’t thinking further out than their own states, because – to me – they’re lucky they got elected to those offices. Guess the answer is they’re looking for some Independent voters in 2016, and will point back to this “one” moderate accomplishment to get ‘em. Now, if they can offer up some Spanish-sounding surnames for the people they’ve “helped” with Medicaid, out of the goodness of their hearts, even if they have to make them up, they’ll think they can get the Hispanic vote, too. Their lack of conscience and a social core is mind-blowing. And sick-e-ning.
I think it’s the brilliance of the way the Affordable Care Act was crafted. A lot of these “states rights” governors are seeing the reality of the implementation of the law.
Yes, truly a most brilliant law, now and soon coming into play! I so remember the night it passed. Tears and disbelief all around!
There is tremendous pressure from hospitals and doctors to expand Medicaid, as there is also increased payments with the participation of Medicaid expansions. Medical providers in red states that don’t participate go without.
Thanks, Bill R.
mornin’ chips and todville! cool, breezy day here in hawaii.
check out today’s doonesbury for a clear angle on the gun debate:
Samuel L. Jackson’s Stop Gun Violence PSA (2011)
Lucky VP and Dr. Biden…..in Paris tonight! We love Paris………so many wonders, from the food, the sights, the art, the music, the cafes, the streets, the courtyards, the formality of the people, the quietness of the conversations…..the great, yes, I mean it, the great French waiters. One French waiter can take care of a room of numerous people more efficiently than three do here. They don’t waste time talking, and just expect that the food is good, so don’t stand asking “how is it?”
One rainy Sunday several years ago, my husband and I wandered into a wonderful, quiet restaurant and we were the only non-French there. The owner knew we were Americans, and in limited (but clear) English explained to us that the chicken was free-range….he was proud of that. It was absolutely delicious, and the place was just so cozy, what you want from a family run French restaurant. Anyway, I get absolutely nostalgic thinking of the Bidens being in that romantic city.
Sounds like a lovely memory!
Through the wonder of twitter, I just clued in to something called “Puppy Bowl” on Animal Planet. Within 10 seconds I was laughing my head off. It mimics the Superbowl using puppies and comes with hilarious commentary. The puppies are shelter puppies and Animal Planet provides information on how they can be adopted.
It’s quite funny.
p.s. The kittens are the cheerleaders this year and do the half-time show.
With live streaming!! http://www.sportsgrid.com/video/puppy-bowl-live-stream/
oh my…looks like those puppies pooped on the locker room floor…….dear me……
A beautiful day to Chips and all of my TOD Family. Enjoy your day and the game.HZ
