Back in a bit with Rise and Shine
Moooooooorning COS! Morning early birds!
And I am on West coast time. 😄 This is my favorite part of retirement. I will be taking another nap after catching up on what I missed last night.
I so envy you! I am up this early morning for work!
You’ll get there, Jackie! And then we’ll all welcome you into retirementland, where everything’s good! And there are naps, as COS said!
GM Ms Chips – the doodle thingy working in the backwoods today? I have a couple of those – different colors – so I call them white thing & blue thing. Very descriptive – useful when on vacation because I have yet to find a hotel (in my price range) where the “free” wifi actually works on any sort of regular timescale.
Ha, my shiny new doodle thingy (aka ‘dingle dongle’) is now working a treat, 99ts ….. although I shouldn’t tempt fate!
Good to hear. I was worried your dingle dongle had a permanent dysfunction.
My dongle is dingling beautifully Japa!!
Well, that opens about 5,000,000 paths of conversation.
Good morning Chips and COS. Love, love, love that picture! I watched for the third time the Leno interview last night. I can never get enough of watching our President.
I love that those smiling, laughing, jostling are always of different shapes, colors, sizes, ages – everyone wants to get close to PBO.
People just looooooooooove him. Yay!
I do too!
I do three!
I am watching Bill press this morning because I wanted to see what Joe Circinoe(sp) had to say and he really disappointed me this morning. I notice that the meme is that Snowden is the main reason PBO cancelled the Russian trip. This quarterbacking drives me nuts.
I have tweeted several times yesterday that the MSM is trying to elevate Snowden at call costs – giving him an “importance” that he does not have or deserve. And by the way, PBO did not cancel his trip – he only canceled a meeting with Putin due to Putin’s horrific and inflexible position on human rights issues.
By focusing on Snowden the MSM avoids discussing Putin’s abuses and instead makes PBO the bad guy. We need to push back on this meme at every opportunity.
I was listening to him on drive to work. I like Cirincione (sp?) and I think he did a good job of looking at both sides and not judging it either way. Plus, Press is the one pushing the Snowden side of things whereas Cirincione did bring up other issues.
hello COS ..
i had watched Bill Press on Currnet TV which is no longer available…what channel/network do you watch him on….
Good Morning, All :)
Good West Coast morning Chipsticks & TOD family. I’m holding my LA Times paper in my hands & looking at that lovely picture. It brought a smile when I saw it! Thanks Chipsticks!!
Putin was hoping summit with Obama would be big PR move for him. Obama denied him the opportunity. Good move.— john miller (@deaconmill) August 08, 2013
Tell Putin to get Edward Snowden and go hunting and horse back riding with him. Use Snowden for his PR, because we all know Putin could have return Snowden to the U.S. if he wanted too. I don’t like or trust Putin.
Good Morning Chips, congrats COS on 1st place. I watched all of his interviews & speeches last night, THANK YOU UT for posting all of this for us. BBL.
To renew drivers license requires occasional retesting of competency. Is same true for gun licenses? And if not, why not?— john miller (@deaconmill) August 08, 2013
Morning everyone:) Kids come to school today! I got home from work yesterday and thought I was gonna die! My back was killing me….but, this morning I get to see those eager, smiling faces and all will be right with the world:)
I missed a lot yesterday, but did watch both PBO talks….have I said that I love this man yet today?
Pete Rouse, a former White House chief of staff and arguably President Obama’s “most-trusted West Wing adviser, has told friends he will be leaving the administration this fall,” Politico reports.
“The white-thatched Rouse, 67, occupies a unique niche in Obama’s tight-knit world. He’s a reassuring problem solver, one of Obama’s few congressional fixers and, in his role as counselor, serves as a both mentor and sounding board to a president who keeps his circle small and confidences close.”
Sorry to hear about Pete Rouse leaving.
Pete Rouse just got the work done, and didn’t try to be a celebrity. I will be sad to see him go. Just knowing he was whispering words of wisdom, and getting his job done well, was comforting. He must be exhausted!
I am so glad Lawrence O’Donnell went after Rush Limbaugh last night in the “Rewrite”, not just went after, but torn into that racists woman hating big mouth, fat drug addict.Of all the nerve someone like Limbaugh has the nerve to attack the First Lady concerning her childhood obesity work. Thanks to Mr. O’Donnell. The First Lady is not trying to make anyone do anything they don’t want too. I am so dam proud of what she is trying to do, because we as blacks know darn well that obesity runs in our communities, and if we can help our kids, grand kids, great-grandkids, nieces, nephews, then what is wrong with that?
Oh I forgot anything that black couple in the White House does, to the racists right wing haters it’s wrong.They could fine a cure for cancer and they would fine fault with it. But that’s how hate, racism works.
It doesn’t work. It’s a sick emotion. I call it a perversion!
Do you call it a race perversion?
Hate of any kind is the perversion doubly so because of skin color. Consider, if you will. If everyone on the planet were blind, where would the hate be? Tone of voice perhaps?
I hope there would be none, but people are jealous, intentionally ignorant, etc. life would be dull with all blonds.
Not according to the Aryan Brotherhood.
They would get bored without a cause any more. It’s really themselves they hate and blame others for their low self-esteem. My philosophy anyway. Always subject to re-evaluation. Nath really liked the post of Ella Baker. I gave credit were it was due.
Did you get my e-mail?
Not yet, I’ll check. Thanks.
The last one I have is of the juggler, but I have 131 unread ones. But I didn’t see another. I’m trying to catch up on other reading before I read the fun stuff.
YOU GOT A LOT TO DO!
Yes, and off the computer too.
Get busy then.
Ay Ay Sir.
And we got to see a bit of the Mom Dancing!
or everyone else can go piss up a tree….
Riiiiiiiiiise and Shine!
