        green does not become you.

        example.

        A woman wanted to reach her husband on his mobile phone but discovered that she was out of credit, she instructed her son to use his own phone to pass across an urgent message to his daddy who was on site. After junior had called, he got back to Mommy to inform her that there was a lady that picked up Daddy’s phone the three times he tried reaching Dad on the mobile.

        She waited impatiently for her husband to return from work and upon seeing him in the driveway; she rushed out and gave him a tight slap. Then she slapped him again for good measure.

        People from the neighbourhood rushed around to find out what the cause of the commotion was. The woman asked junior to tell everybody what the lady said to him when he called.

        Junior said: “The subscriber you have dialled is not available at present. Please try again later.”

    Hi everyone. Yes, there is a lot going on but I took a break from all the news to watch my favorite show, Jeopardy. It was the Teen Tournament and it was fantastic. The guy I was pulling for won. This broke on twitter and I wanted to share it with you. Please look at the picture and see the winners response to the final Jeopardy question.

      I watched it and I was pulling hard for him too. He was so delightful, funny, and respectful. His big gamble paid off and his final answer cracked me up.

    Hey all, getting myself ready for this SOTU address. Really looking forward to watching it with you all. Not even planning to do CSPAN tonight. Just the whitehouse’s youtube channel, here and possibly twitter.

    But before it starts, off to the showers with me…BBL

    Okay, Roll Call.

    “Stand Up” and be counted

    The Great State of Ohio is here and accounted for! Ohio is definetly for Obama. In 2008 & 2012, Ohio put POTUS on top!

    By Birth, Uganda is definitely accounted for!!!

      Nice catch, amk. Do you think the “Senate vote” is really just a formality?

        from that bbc linky

        The Senate – which is also dominated by the Socialists and their allies – is thought likely to back the measure, which will become law by May or June, our correspondent says.

    MSNBC is nonstop filming the cabin burning and C-Span is letting those calling in talk uninterrupted trash. Came here in frustration. Don’t need to see a cabin burning. They need to wait till they have real facts to report especially one hour before the SOTU address.

      The guy from National Review on C-SPAN said he hopes PBO will offer an olive branch to the Republicans. Their playing the victim is hilarious.

    I’m sooo confused , I thought it was supposed to start at 8 – the SOTU.

    I was watching C-Span for awhile. The callers are so misinformed, Fox talking points. Amanda Terkel wasn’t any better. It’s like President Obama never laid out his plans for the future of the USA. He is also, not going to give them details on what he can do. These pundits are just lazy.

    Short memories also.

  20. February 12, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    So, Rubio is going to speak about low taxes and Rand Paul is going to speak on Immigration reform.
    I see what they did there.

  21. 72 Roberta in MN
    February 12, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    And C-Span is covering both responses. So, they have now anointed the Tea Party as a party.

    And the empathic, gracious, ROCKET SCIENTIST for political brains that is our President will handle this with his usual grace and wisdom that we have come to appreciate and respect.

    National Review really talking up how in control and how much leverage pubs have with the sequester. They’ve let their base know they are willing to let the military cuts happen etc. How wonderful Rubio and Paul are, they;re t-party and main etc.

  26. February 12, 2013 at 8:39 pm

  27. February 12, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    What if they pre empt the SOTU?
    It seems they are leasing up to that…
    To be honest, it would not surprise me, they are probably talking about it right now.

  28. February 12, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Fortunately, we must remember, the vast majority of people will watch the SOTU address on ABC, CBS, and NBC, not Fox, CNN, and MSNBC. Worthless cable “news” networks.

    crazy caller on c-span saying the cosmetic features on the Ar-15 has no bearing on how they function. Since 1986 assault weapons have been banned due to very expensive licensing? He started off dinging our president on transparency, then accused him of deviousness on the gun issue. The caller before him sounded sane, a sane democrat.

  30. February 12, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    FYI – Apparently, rumor going around that Anonymous has threatened to take down all online streams of the SOTU. So you might want to be sure you have it ready to go on your TV as well.

  31. February 12, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    Moment of levity people I so over manhunt coverage

    This coverage of this Dorner story has gone to dam far, but what do you expect with the media?.

    This is UNBELIEVABLE!!!! C-Span in every year before this one had a camera inside the room long before the speech began and we could watch folks arrive.
    This year Cantor is b.s ing.
    Apparently there is no way to diminish POTUS that is too low for them.
    Oh wait, Now they say they will STFU and show chamber. last possible minute.
