hey congrats isonprize!
Congrats ison for #1 :)
Beautiful, UT. Thank you.
This photo touched me too. Thanks UT
A picture really really really really is worth a thousand words. I bring you a doped out Paul Ryan.
This is what happens when Paul Ryan gets high. RT @PRyan: Politicians don't always kiss babies. http://t.co/ZbAjAhTtfQ— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) July 01, 2013
Or the fish is high! you know how one can loose their inhibitions! Get caught up in the moment!!!!!!
And look what that fish is wearing! Scales! Has she no shame? She obviously asked for it. It’s all the fish’s fault…
Layla, you have such a devilish sense of humor! Love it.
Ugh! I feel deeply sorry for that fish. Ryan is desperate.
This pic shows why many republican pols are always thinking about humans having sex with animals. Ryan is working on the foreplay portion!
He’s a repub majiir, he will say the fish started it!
Too bad it’s not a piranha. That’s just gross.
There once was a politician named Ryan
Who never said a single word without lyin’
He once implied he caught a fish
That was more a “date” than a dish
But the fish met the pan and was soon fryin’.

I just don’t understand women who vote for gop.
They love their masters!
This ugly scene could have been avoided if Ohioans had re-elected Gov Strickland. He was a good man. One lousy election brings this descent into hatred and misogyny. It sickens me to see this.
Jackie, i’t’ time for the girlfriends of these fools who had to have an abortion to come out!
I think many dems allowed themselves to fall prey to republicans’ anti-Park 51 tactics and some fake dems’ discouraging comments about not getting their little ponies on January 21, 2009 and didn’t vote in 2010. Republicans never attack their own pols over things that dems say. They close ranks and offer a lot of support. Dems, OTOH, allow themselves to buy into whatever a RWer says, and it’s pitiful watching them turn on their own pols over stupid stuff. All of the fake scandals the republicans have created, along with Greenwald’s questionable reporting on the NSA’s surveillance activities are intended to depress dems and compel to not show up at the polls in 2014. I’ve never understood some dems tendency to be convinced by RW lies to the point where they don’t show up and vote. I always vote, and I am not influenced by the likes of Greenwald and Chris Christie to vote for any republican politician, Jackie. I guess when one gets older, it’s easier to see through the BS that republican pols throw out for public consumption. I’ve noticed that some dems are still defending Greenwald, even though information has emerged that shows he’s a self-serving opportunist and first class liar.

What is it with these men? I am fed up with these men.
When are women going to wake up and throw these jerks out!!!!!!!
In all of this anti-woman legislation, they totally give no thought to the man that got the woman in this uncomfortable situation in the first place.
What has happened to Ohio?
Yes, wtf is it with these men? They are so friggin’ irrelevant.
Wow, look at that, all old white men. Surprise, surprise, surprise.
All old white men who are saying I tell you women what to do with your body. All old white men.
As per Michelle Bachman, the Bible tells to obey their men.
meant to say: “the Bible tells them to obey their men.”
Hi, nath –
And as Nancy Smash would say about Bachmann’s passing on any info: Who cares?
Goodnight, TODville. Safe landing, Mr. President and Family!
And why aren’t the MSM complaining about the lack of women in the picture – ah yes – this is a white governor – not a black president

This is terrible! Pray for them and their families.
Oh my!!!! what a tragedy
OMG! I had no idea…of course, I haven’t been on the computer much and I never watch the news….this is so sad. SO sad. That started as a small fire and BAM! it was huge. I’ll have to go read up on this….my heart aches for their families.
I absolutely cannot believe this news. I can’t. Heartbreaking.
This is so, so sad!

What the hell is this? Was it a bush fire? Did it start as a house fire?
Started by lightening yesterday…
OMG, I just saw a news tweet that said this town lost all but one of its firefighters.
What state ?
I think it’s in Arizona
Yes, it is Arizona. Praying for the firefighters families and anyone here in our TOD family who might have friends or relatives. It is very, very hot here where I live.
Goodnight Chips and TOD family.
Thanks UT for all of the wonderful contributions that you bring to this beautiful haven.

Look at those awful expressions of triumph on those men’s faces. Sickening.
Where are the Wendys of Ohio!
Senator Nina Hunter has been working hard against this. She is a fighter. These people slipped these horrible restrictions into the BUDGET, so they never even came up for debate. It was a totally underhanded trick.
You know, I can’t help myself, but I said this on Twitter – Women need to stop putting out. Seriously, have the courage & willpower to withhold sex from these aholes. I bet that’s the only thing they’ll understand. Hope I’m not too raunchy, but these guys are obsessed with women’s bodies, so they shouldn’t be allowed to touch any.
Great idea a female politician in an African country (Liberia I think) tried it, it not only garnered a lot of world wide attention but the issue was speedily dealt with and women and their issues ceased to be ignored…I say its time for women in Texas and those other right wing nut job state houses to close up shop until these men get with the program …we should be the only thing standing..pun intended
:D Glad someone thinks as I do.

Q&A with Charles Bolden
One question, if all Davld Nakamura wanted to do was tweet negative things about POTUS and FLOTUS, he could have left his stupid ass self home to do that. He and the Washington Post is a ” F” ing disgrace.

The Obamas will be leaving at 3:40am and arriving at 7:40am. Thanks for the info Chipsticks.
3:20 I mean.
That picture of my beloved President hugging Desmond Tutu is precious!
Before I go to bed, I wanted to leave you all with this, I saw on FLOTUS Instagram where someone said that they wish that FLOTUS and POTUS could be First Lady and President forever. Anyone agree with that.???? Goodnight. :)
I have said it many times, but a lot of us will be grieving on Jan 20 2017.
Boy how true that is hopefruit2.
Hopefruit2 and anniebella, I hope we all can continue to enjoy our POTUS and FLOTUS by watching them travel, write their books, and speak all over the world. Then too, we can watch our First Daughters in college as well.
I am going to miss them so much. However, I have hope that Almighty still has so wonderful gems in these two beautiful souls for all of our TOD family to watch and enjoy.. I pray daily for grace to witness it all. HZ
Not me, Hopefruit! I will be rejoicing that our first African American President, despite all the hate and obstruction, successfully finished his two terms as president and left the world stage highly beloved and respected by most people in the world.
But he will remain on the world stage for the rest of his life nath – unlike some ex presidents who are not welcome in much of the world.
Sorry, as much as I love President Obama and the First Lady, I don’t agree with that. The President has been saying to potential young African leaders that no leader is indispensable. I want them to serve their term and after that they will still be able to make a contribution to improving the lives of people throughout the world as private citizens.
I agree. I’m sure after eight years, they can’t wait to get out of Washington.
Part of me agree with you too nathkatun 7, cause I know FLOTUS wouldn’t be for it. No way, no how. But it’s just me being selfish thinking of myself, wondering what it would be like when POTUS and FLOTUS walk out of that WH for good. And I’m being honest, it will not be easy. But they both will be young enough to continue to do great things .
“…it’s just me being selfish thinking of myself…”
Anniebella, I totally understand how you feel! I feel the same way when I am being selfish too. But I know that the right thing to do is to be realistic. The Constitution is what it is, and Presidents are limited to two terms; which, on the whole, is a good thing. Please don’t get me wrong, I too will greatly miss them when they are no longer in the White House. But as you said, both POTUS and FLOTUS are still relatively young (at least compared to me) and they will still have ample opportunity to do great things. One of the things I hope they will do is to create an institute to train new leaders. FLOTUS can also continue her interest in inspiring young people to pursue healthy habits of eating well and exercising, the two most important things I wish I had paid attention to in my early years. In addition, I think It would be a good thing for their teenager girls to be able to enjoy relatively normal lives away from the WH bubble!
earlier, someone asked about whether or not The Beast is transported from location to location or if they are many stored around the world.

Hearing that 19 firefighters were killed in Arizona today fighting the #yarnellfire. Absolutely devastating news.— Gabrielle Giffords (@GabbyGiffords) July 01, 2013
Such a tragic loss. I fear we will see more and more of this as weather patterns get more extreme.
With a heavy heart I bid you good night!
Brother When You Weep…
Brother when you weep for me
Remember that it was meant to be
Lay me down and when you leave
Remember I’ll be at your sleeve
In every dark and choking hall
I’ll be there as you slowly crawl
On every roof in driving snow
I’ll hold your coat and you will know
In cellars hot with searing heat
At windows where a gate you meet
In closets where young children hide
You know I’ll be there at your side
The house from which I now respond
Is overstaffed with heroes gone
Men who answered one last bell
Did the job and did it well
As firemen we understand
That death’s a card dealt in our hand
A card we hope we never play
But one we hold there anyway
That card is something we ignore
As we crawl across a weakened floor
For we know that we’re the only prayer
For anyone that might be there
So remember as you wipe your tears
The joy I knew throughout the years
As I did the job I loved to do
I pray that thought will see you through

WTF is this vapid ******* talking about
EDITED by Chips: Mellesia, please don’t bring that word here, thank you.
Dear Friend, Yes, I also think Noonan is an idiot. I would voice my objection if you used a racial slur. So I voice one now. Calling her a cunt is demeaning, abusive and sexist.
I would agree Anna – the woman is a first class idiot – one of the many who supports the GOP hatred towards women – she really thinks it is not directed at herself – sad – but some words demean ALL women and should never be used.
I don’t watch Sunday morning shows, so I skip the likes of people I can’t stand, and Peggy Noonan is one of those I can’t stand.
I was going to write something last night and instead, left for the night. I am just wondering, the word is a slur, very offensive to most. So when we repeat it in it’s full monty while chiding another is that OK still? IMHO, I say no. For two wrongs can’t make a right.
