A good & graceful human being is our President.

A young lady from a Chicago Public High School, developed an app and was invited to the White House Science Fair today. http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/19590314-418/chicago-teen-hopes-to-show-off-babysitting-app-to-barack-obama.html
The other student in attendance at the science fair from Chicago, a young man, goes to a charter school http://www.perspectivescs.org/PLA/home
Oh I saw that young woman.. wants to be a nurse & a programmer.. and how amazing that she came up with this idea after babysitting. I just loved these kids, they were all so brilliant.
ok, I saw this thread when it opened, but I felt weird posting a comment, cause I figured it would be cool, if there were no comment for this post. get it a moment of silence…so no comments :D
Now that you mention it lamh – yes. Didn’t think of it that way but it makes perfect sense!
but how long does a moment last? is it less than a minute? more than a second? was the first comment made after a moment had passed from the time the thread appeared? does it count that the moment was at 2:50pm, well before the time of this thread? so many questions, so few moments to ponder them.
me too! left it silence
well I kinda blew that didn’t I. I really should have thought quicker, sorry lamh, your idea is a good one.
I am so very glad that this moment of silence for the President was private. And, yet, so very glad that Pete Souza was there to capture it, for history’s sake – and our sake. God bless him and Boston and all the others!

Totally with you, Levar!
Lord I see Tweety pushing the “enemy combatant” line. I’m no fan of Johnathan Turley, but in this I agree. Turley telling Tweety, there are war time consideration, but this is not the case, Turley rightly asked, “who are we at war with” that the bomber is associated with. Tweety was like “well aren’t we at war”. Turely asked Tweety, “well we do have a war on terror, but who exactly are we at war with” Tweety says “well we are at war with Al Queda”. As Turley pointed out, there is no evidence that the Boston bomber was associate with Al Queda.
Tweety seemed to be thirsty for blood and tried to make Turley seem naive and too pacifist, IMHO.
It was disgusting.
I turned it off quickly.
I love these armchair warriors who thirst for blood but never put their own asses on the line.
Matthews has been pushing the “enemy combatant” line since Monday. And he has been sticking to it no matter what the evidence points to otherwise. That’s where the hard-core Republican in him is revealed – ignore the facts, go ahead with your talking points, no matter how off the wall they are.
Matthews can push what he want, POTUS will not be going for it.
Hope, I would rather say that’s where the scared kid in him is revealed.
I turn to HGTV….TOD is where I get my news and what’s happening that’s worth knowing about. I listen to Stephanie Miller than Randi Rhodes. I have not watched UCH, RM, and only occasionally LO it just a bunch of white noise. If I were not working, I’d watch Rev Al only.
Lamh36! People like “Twetty” are despicable! So who do they want to invade now, Chechnya? If so they have to be prepared to fight Russia because Chechnya is a par of the Russian Federation.
I meant to say “part of the Russian Federation.”
Here’s why the Koch brothers’ gluttonous purchase of neutral to liberal media newspapers is dangerous. It will kill off already diminishing News and investigation of local and state level politics and deal making. The Kochs are not interested in federal power now, but state control now.
These Newspaper purchases will immensely help them monopolize control of opinion in blue/purple states. Think about the Wisconsinization/Walkerization of Blue/Purple states.
The biggest battle for the future of America will have to be the one against corporate media. You bring back some decent journalism, and EVERYTHING becomes easier. Because people are told the truth.
I would refuse to buy it we need to send a signal to the sellers that if they sell to the Coke heads, I will cancel by subscription.
Once again, PBO has outfoxed the MSM, who haven’t caught up with his strategies yet.

POTUS is tenacious and determined. And I know I don’t need to remind TODville, is the embodiment of charming. How many of the 20 female Senators will be swooning at the end of the evening tomorrow? 19? Al 20?
Here’s a list of female U.S. Senators (I think the “class” refers to when they’re up for re-election):
All 20 plus us onlookers
He will give each of them a quick but gentle peck, leaving them wanting more as they leave the WH on a high note and vowing to do what ever they can to help get his legislation passed.
Aaaah that “peck” so innocently placed yet so pulse racingly sexy
This is the Obama administration, not the Clinton administration.
I heard Maureen Dowd might try to slip in there, Senator Maureen Dowd. :)
Exactly my point! PBO places the peck platonically but the senators and some of us find that innocent placement to pulse-racingly sexy. PBO can’t help how some of us (ahem) react.
Indeed zizi, indeed. :)
off to the naughty mat with ye…
of the 5 female Senators elected in the Year of the Woman (1992)…only one is not there now…Senator Carol Mosley Braun…First Blk woman elected to the Senate….I think she may be the only Blk woman ever elected to the Senate…
She is and is one of the only 6 Black US Senators since America’s inception of that body in April of 1789. Shame, Shame, Shame!
Eight African Americans have served in the U.S. Senate, two in the Republican Party from Mississippi during the Reconstruction Era and six more recently: four Democrats, three from Illinois (including Barack Obama) and one from Massachusetts; and two Republicans, one each from Massachusetts and South Carolina…
Since the 1940s, when decades of the Great Migration resulted in millions of African Americans having migrated from the South, no state has had a majority of African-American residents. Because of this, an African-American candidate cannot rely on the black vote alone to be elected to the Senate. The candidate must reach out to other races and groups to become elected to the United States Senate and to many congressional seats. Six African Americans have served in the Senate since the 1940s: Edward W. Brooke, a Republican from Massachusetts; Carol Moseley Braun, Barack Obama, and Roland Burris (appointed to fill a vacancy), all Democrats from Illinois; Tim Scott (appointed to fill a vacancy), a Republican from South Carolina; and Mo Cowan (appointed to fill a vacancy), a Democrat from Massachusetts…
Prettyfoot, you are right about 8 Blacks who have served in the U.S. Senate since 1789. And two of those served during Reconstruction. Both of them were appointed by the Mississippi legislature because this was before the passage of the 17th Amendment (which incidentally many tea baggers want to repeal). Three of the Black Senators were appointed to serve the remaining terms of Senators who either resigned (Jim DeMintt) or took on new Jobs (Barack Obama and John Kerry). Sadly, only 3 Blacks have been elected statewide to serve in the United States. These are: Edward Brooke (MA); Carol Mosley-Braun (IL); and Barack Obama (IL). Of the 8 Blacks who have served in the U.S. Senate, 3 were from Illinois; 2 were from Mississippi; 2 were from Massachusetts; and 1 from South Carolina. Clearly, it is still not easy for African Americans to win statewide electoral offices as evidenced by the fact that only two African Americans have served as Governors of States. One was elected (Doug Wilder in Virginia), the other served temporarily for 43 days (P.S.B. Pinchback, in Louisiana during Reconstruction) until the disputed election for governor was resolved.
greetings nath…when you look at the fact that Blk folks have not been able to win statewide elections…it makes the election of PBO even more extraordinary…
Sorry,, I show have counted Burris and Scott.
ohhh no need to be sorry…it made me look the info…not because I thought you were wrong…but I wanted to know who the Senators were…and as Nath stated…it is hard for Blk folks to be elected to statewide offices…when you look at these things it makes the election of PBO even more extraordinary.
PBO is seeking that common sense caucus…

50 days until #Zimmerman goes on trial. Are you still standing in complete solidarity for #Justice4Trayvon? http://t.co/253RqFlXxu— CC (@CrazyChick5150) April 21, 2013
Such heartbreak. I do not know how Trayvon’s mom and dad will get through this.
I have my ideas as to what you meant, too.
I meant that I understand exactly how you feel…because I do not know if I could handle my child being murdered…
Oh, I’m sorry. I thought you were implying private thoughts and prayers. I totally agree with what you wrote about not being able to handle any of it.
and to handle wit with such grace and courage as they have…I think of the families of Hadiya Pendleton…New Town…how they have kept their head to the sky…
In some small way, keeping involved as they all are, never stopping that – as long as they’re still standing and can do it – numbs them a bit, I would imagine. It’s down the road when it’ll hit them again and again, if they take any kind of a breather, and will be doubly hard when they have to attend trials.
My 16-y/o cousin died unexpectedly of natural causes one Sunday morning, and my aunt and uncle were NEVER EVER the same from 1958 until they passed away in 2000.
The media can’t wait till that trial begins.
The Zimmerman trial i mean.

Tomorrow evening, Pres Obama hosts WH dinner women Senators of both parties. There are 20 women in the Senate: 16 Dems & 4 Republicans.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) April 22, 2013
Thank you Mark Knoller. You can go get another doughnut!
Count Knoller sure has a fascination with numbers. I wonder why? There must be a reason for it; the man counts air miles, golf games ; everything. He is scary! When he can’t sleep I bet he counts donuts.
Is that a form of OCD, in addition to his ODS?
I have heard that within his journalist colleagues, he is touted as the official keeper of number and records – they like his tallies & treat him like “the dean of journalistic numbers”
My question is why are the Republicans Senators coming? Did Mitch McConnell order them to go? I guess they feel when the President of the United States invite you to dinner, you show respect because it is a honor and you go, but push come to shove they will still follow McConnell. I’m proud of Senator Hagan for her vote last week on the back ground check.
It’s become increasingly clear that using “Republican” and “leadership” in the same sentence does not compute… unless there’s a NOT in that sentence!
During the previous “charm” offensive, the invited Senators could barely contain their glee to be part of this “inner circle.” POTUS is the most powerful (and interesting) man in the world, only the craziest (i.e., those most in the grip of the Tea Party) most self-destructive pols would turn down an invitation, which strokes their (huge) egos.
The Senators love being able to meet POTUS without having to suck up to McConnell, who has no influence on these four female Senators.

I want to welcome my incredible wife and your Second Lady, Jill, to Twitter. Follow her at @DrBiden. –VP— Office of VP Biden (@VP) April 22, 2013
Welcome Dr. Biden.
I love this clip of the two of them from waaaaaay back:
Oh, yes, I remember that SO well!
Meta, I never saw that!! Yikes! :lol:
Did, um, Hillary ever see that clip??
I dunno…..I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during the transition period. I think PBO probably really wanted Joe for VP but wanted to give him something to think about, knowing full well he would accept the VP position after they hashed out the conversation. There were no other truly viable candidates at that point, even though he was considering others.
Oh Meta, cannot wait for *the* book on that time, it will be fascinating. I can’t remember if I ever even knew that Joe was considered for Sec of State rather than VP – although, you know my rusty brain ….
It wasn’t public knowledge. That’s why Joe was slightly horrified that Jill was spilling the beans. There’s a better YouTube of this out there but I’m not seeing it at the moment.
Wow, Meta, the things you learn at TOD! This is the first time I’ve heard of this! Thank you so much for sharing this. President Obama really wanted Joe Biden to be in his administration. I am glad he accepted the VP position. The two families have been wonderful. By the way, my mind is already made up to support VP Biden if decides to run in 2016. I don’t want hear any excuses about his age. And that’s not because he is in my age group, although he appears to be fitter than me. If Italy can select an 86 years-old leader, what would be so wrong with electing a President who is seventy years or so. We already elected a president who was older (Republican Saint, Ronnie Reagan).

Sick sick Chris Hayes. It gets worse and worse now she brings on Congressman Cohen & Gilligan to charge POTUS with conniving with Putin to expand war on Chechens
I just changed the channel on All In with Chris Hayes when he teased that Scahill would be the next guest. My only regret is that he could not hear the CLICK as I changed the channel. I am finding this show unwatchable and just boring.
I did the same thing.
I knew it. Yup, it wouldn’t be long before Cris Hayes vomits out Anwar al-Aulaqii. I really cannot stand his regurgitation of right wing and firebagger talking points. He really should be on FOX so he can regurgitate all the hateful words he memorized from the dictionary.
Why oh why would MSNBC give him a prime time slot? There are so many other candidates like Martin Basir or Joy Reid.
He regurgitates because he has no original thoughts. Exactly what MSNBC seemed to be looking for, in him. Who knows why. Maybe Chris Hayes sucked up more than the others or something.

I am hoping that All in with Chris Hayes, will soon be Goon with Chris Hayes. His show is full of alot of B.S. Seem to me this one guy up there want people to feel sorry for that American born terrorist who was kill by a drone. I never thought I would say this but I rather have Ed back. Ed can be sickening too but Chris Hayes is worse. Alot worse.
I really can’t believe this guy has a show in prime time featuring PL whiners spouting drivel? He can’t have a huge audience unless people are just watching out of curiosity or habit.
This!!!! Never thought I would wish for Ed. Ed had his moments, but at least I could relate to him. Never watched jumpy Chris Hayes; never will. :)
I agree. Chris Hayes is sooooooooooooo sickening whether it’s up in the morning or all in the evening. Take him off. I can’t stand his pontificating ass.

Can one of you august bloggers enlighten me? RADICALIZED: Can this label be applied to Christians or is it only a Muslim identifier? What then would we call the KKK, Aryan Brotherhood, and White Citizens Council?
A highly excellent question, Yardarm. As we’ve been informed by the experts, only Muslims can become ‘radicalized’, Christians who murder people are merely stray sheep.
With all due respect Admiral. That’s heifer dust. Radical is just another one of the rw code words. The Black Panthers were called radicals so why not THEM, hmm?
I think Chips is mocking the “experts” who use the racist term “radical” to apply to only non-Christian/non-Whites!
Exactly, thanks Hopefruit!
I know hopefruit. It’s just that this whole business pisses me off!
I was just being sarcastic Yardarm about how Islam is portrayed by ignorant fools in the media, most of them think the word itself is code for ‘radical’, even though the vast majority of Muslims are peace-loving people. For what it’s worth, I reckon the people doing most harm around the globe, not least to the welfare of women and children, are extreme/radical Christians. eg Ask the husband of the woman who died in Ireland when she was denied an abortion, having been informed “this is a Catholic country”.
Okay then. We’re reading from the same book. :-)
As always, shipmate!
I would call them Terrorists…all while carrying the bible in their hand….
terrorism took on a new meaning after 9/11….
but those groups who terrorized long before 9/11 are ever mentioned…they referred to as HATE groups..
Okay, but they claim to be Christians. So are they radical Christians or what?
I would never call them Christians….you can pick a name for them…however they use their faith as a cover…
“I would never call them Christians…”
Prettyfoot, I think as a Christian who knows the tenants of Christianity you are absolutely justified in denying that groups like the KKK are Christians. Unfortunately, Muslims don’t have that luxury. All the evil deeds committed by people who claim to be Muslims are blamed on Islam as religion. Consequently, all Muslims, despite the fact that Islam, like Christianity, is one of the truly universal religion practiced by billions of people of all races and ethnicity, and in practically every country on all the five continents. Moreover, Islam has been around since the 6th century. But now, all of a sudden, being a Muslim is viewed as being the same as a terrorist! This is what Yardarm was trying to get at? How come, we Christians insist on calling any deranged terrorist who uses the “Islamic faith as a cover” as radical muslim while we refuse to label deranged Christians, like the KKK, who use terror and violence, while carrying the CROSS, as radical Christians? Do you see the double-standard here?
yes I do…
I suppose what I was trying to say is that those that who use religion to spread death…terror and destruction have distorted their faith…they do not represent the teachings of Christ or Muhammad….
that is point I was trying to make…because there is no such thing as Radical Christianity just as there is no such thing as Radical Islam…..
Thank-you Yardarm. If the brothers had become “born-again Christians” in 2010, would the MSM be even looking at their religion as a motive for the bombings? The answer is no.
Yardarm, like you I am in need of enlightenment on that subject. Lest we forget, the KKK routinely burned the CROSS, the most revered Christian symbol, whenever they were terrorizing Black people. Yet no one would have dared to indict all Christians because of KKK behavior which were supposedly influenced by their version of Christianity. It’s this hypocrisy, and the blatant double standards, when Islam is blamed for all the evil acts committed by people who happen to be Muslims, or who may even use their Islamic beliefs to justify their actions. Look, slave holders and segregationists/white supremacists routinely quoted passages from the Bible to justify slavery, segregation and the persecution of Black people. Surely, it would be absurd to indict Christianity and all Christians because slave owners, segregationists and white supremacists used Christianity to justify their diabolical acts.
I’m sayin’ nath……..We’re on the same page.
We are definitely on the same page, Yard! No matter how much some people try to raise their Norse, the hypocrisy still stinks to the high heavens! I am expected, actually obligated, to forget that people who called themselves Christians and bombed a Christian Black Church in 1963, killing four little girls were not terrorists. But now I must be fearful of all Muslims, even those that may have been my neighbors for decades and had done no harm to me, just because two deranged young men decided to terrorize a city. I am also expected, and rightly so, not to blame all Christians for the actions of individual Christians who went on rampage to kill people in a movie theater, or kill people in a Sikh temple, or kill those innocent grade school kids in Newtown, CT. You see, Christians cannot be terrorists! Only deranged people who call themselves Christians commit heinous crimes. But, all believers in Islam are terrorists. Any Muslim who commits a heinous crime is motivated by Islam, but any Christian who commits a heinous act, even though he may be a devout Christian, must be suffering from mental illness. Sane Christians don’t commit terrorist acts; it’s only same Muslims who commit terrorist acts.
As I said before, the hypocrisy (and double-standards) stinks to the high heavens!
AMEN, AMEN, & AMEN!

News Corp has reached a $139m (£91m) settlement with shareholders over complaints filed against the company’s board of directors.
The 2011 suit related to the company’s UK phone-hacking scandal and the purchase of a UK TV production firm.
The money will be covered by the insurance policies of the directors, who are the defendants in the suits.
Trustees of Amalgamated Bank of New York and the Central Laborers Pension Fund, which are both News Corp shareholders, first filed a lawsuit in March 2011.
It was directed against News Corp’s directors for overpaying when the company bought Shine Group, a UK TV production company, from News Corp’s chairman and chief executive Rupert Murdoch’s daughter Elisabeth.
They claimed that the takeover deal was “unfairly” priced and that the News Corp board of directors failed to challenge Mr Murdoch about the terms of the transaction.
So the punk gets off once again by throwing money.

“What Obama did in the four months between Newtown and Wednesday’s Senate defeat showed some of the greatest presidential guts in U.S. history” says Peter Beinart.
And PBO will not give up. The MSM doesn’t realize that when POTUS said in the SOTU that “They deserve a vote,” it wasn’t just for political effect. PBO meant what he said.
The poor MSM. They don’t understand how to cover a relentless, determined and SKILLFUL POTUS.
By the end of POTUS’s second term they will have lost count of the number of times they’ve had to wipe the egg of their faces.
