Hi everyone, I don’t post often but I’m here daily lurking lol. I need help. I just noticed my twitter account (Brezzydee) has been suspended. I don’t know why. I wrote them and now waiting to hear back. Has this happened to anyone else? Why would they do this? Thanks for any help you can give me.
Brez were you following more people than you had followers? If yes then you were weak against twitter attacks (lots of people blocking you – like the TCOT/TGDN people) Twitter assumed you were spamming. kEEP emailing them!!! Hope this helps
Thanks for the help, but no I had more followers than I was following. I’m careful about who I follow. It’s just strange. To be suspended for no reason. I hadn’t even posted to anyone.
The President is on ‘FIYAH’!!!!
I hope Ed Markey is LISTENING carefully to the President so that when he makes it in he will follow through, SUPPORTING the President.
He will support the President. However, he is an ardent environmentalist and may push for more than the current makeup of Congress would ever allow. But just like the President he will work hard for moving forward and he will be a reliable ally.
The crowd at Obama rally for Markey http://t.co/D9uIzPSBWy— Josh Lederman (@joshledermanAP) June 12, 2013
Edward Snowden Reportedly Showed Hong Kong Newspaper Documents Revealing US Hacking Attacks On China businessinsider.com/snowden-us-has… @businessinsider— Dayne (@KARLewis) June 12, 2013
Ok, NOW can we call it treason?
No shit! He’s this brave American, who gets paid six figures and doesn’t know that China hacks us ALL THE TIME, but he’s defending China against us?
He’s a defector and a traitor.
I was JUST THINKING THE SAME EFFIN THING.
So now he is Concerned about Hong Kong and China? Lordy, Lordy……this guy is wickedly treasonous……a word I don’t use very much. Actually, I have never called anyone that, but now.
Nena, the only other time I’ve used the word is to describe Cheney, Rove, Libby, etc., for outing Valerie Plame.
I was tempted then. I think You were right then, I was wrong.
Hong Kong is a city within China, not a country. Nena don’t mean to sound mean to you, but I hear and read about Hong Kong and China lots as if they were separate contries.
And now we know why he chose China. He gave them our secrets.
LL, post whenever it suits you, rally all done. HUGE thank yous again.
@TheJusticeDept Snowden is a traitor businessinsider.com/snowden-us-has… & Greenwald & anyone else who enabled him should be indicted. cc @TheReidReport— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) June 12, 2013

Teamwork: President Obama and Ed Markey in MA today http://t.co/jKztwYLU6y— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) June 12, 2013
Triple podium slap !
Yes – I heard that
New post: http://theobamadiary.com/2013/06/12/letter-from-a-hong-kong-hotel-suite/
Kaffee: *I want the truth!*
Col. Jessep: *You can’t handle the truth!*
Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives.
And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline.
I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a da** what you think you are entitled to.
Kaffee: *Did you order the Code Red?*
Col. Jessep: *You’re God**** right I did!*
Powerful scene. Powerful words.
And Obama reminded Massachusetts Democrats of their failure in the last Senate special election – when Attorney General Martha Coakley lost to Scott Brown in January 2010.
“There are a whole lot of Democrats in this state and a whole lot of Obama voters,” Obama said. “You can’t just turn out during a presidential election. You’ve got to turn out in this election. You can’t think, ‘Oh, I did my work in 2012.’ You’ve got some work to do in 2013.”
