Wonder if Tiger will join him?
Kinda doubt it. He’s somewhere licking his wounds. Congrats.
Thanks. he does seem to be thoroughly enjoying himself.
Do. Not. Get. Me. Started. On. Tiger.
Sergio “Fried Chicken” Garcia finished higher than him.
LL!!!!!!! I sincerely hope you’ve had a better time of it lately than Tiger did at that tournament…… jeez.
Well, my only hellish day seems to be this coming Thursday. The rest of the time I’m just way busier than normal.
But next week it’s vacation time, and the missus and I are going to spend a night in Solvang.
Good to hear you’ll get a break soon, mine ended today so my grumpiness levels are Jupiter-high!!
Whew, okay, no, I was wrong. Sergio had been at -3. But, being Sergio, he was a right muppet and finished at +8. So Tiger beat him and Whiny Phil.
But still, dude needs to win next year’s Masters.
Hey, everyone has a bad day. Still I wish I had his cash flow.
yardarm756, that wasn’t a bad day, that was a horrible, terrible, awful, baaaaaaad day. What place did Tiger finish in?
I can’t count that high. :shock:
Congrats on being number one VL!!!
Thank you, trekkiewife.
VL! Busting the door DOWN! Congrats on first!!! :-)
Thank you, Dudette.
Why would Tiger join POTUS? Seem to me Tiger need to work on his game, because he stunk up the joint in that last tournament.
I believe that he and Tiger have played together before.
POTUS went to Florida one week-end and Tiger join him for a round of golf and the WHPC had a dam fit cause they didn’t get the chance to see them. Lead by Ed Henry.

Hi Bobfr, I looked up DeKalb County in GA., and the United States Congressman for that District 13th is :Congressman David Scott.
He does not accept emails from those who are not his constituents, but I feel that we all are very concerned about this.
I have seen this Congressman on tv several times. I feel if we can make this known by contacting Mr. Scott via Twitter, Facebook, etc., we may be able to move some people to see what is causing this type of decision.
Washington Phone:202- 225-2939. I know that they are home in their but if we can see if we have someone from GA within our family here, maybe they can contact Congressman Scott’s office there.
Bobfr, can this be put into a tweet for Congressman David Scott? TY, Bobfr. HZ
This is horrible, dudette. Old man Cheney gets a new heart and this young boy with his whole life ahead of
him gets rejected. Everything about this is terribly, terribly wrong.

Well done, Dudette, very well done!!!
Thanks Bob! I’m just brainstorming. Don’t know what else to do!
Dudette, look above and see what I wrote to Bobfr. I looked up the county to see who is the Congressperson, and found out it is David Scott. He will not take emails from non constituents. However, if we can get a tweet to him, maybe we can get his attention and put some decent pressure on his office.
Washington Office phone: (202) 225-2939. I am going to try to get information in the morning and see if I can get his GA. office number. If I do, I will post it here for those who might want to call his office in GA., He is probably home for vacation time now. HZ
Dudette, Congressman David Scott’s District is DeKalb County, District 13. HZ
Great job highlighting the plight of this young man, Dudette! This is absolutely disgusting!

Read the chilling last sentence. Yet deriding science a GOP base applause line. Timing a Rise in Sea Level
nyti.ms/14pZxpw— David Plouffe (@davidplouffe) August 13, 2013
The “chilling last sentence”:
“But if sea level is capable of rising several feet per century, as Dr. O’Leary’s paper would seem to imply and as many other scientists believe, then babies being born now could live to see the early stages of a global calamity.”
Mr Plouffe is soooooo intelligent!
Brutal and spot on assessment of MoDo, and the other idiots of D.C. conventional wisdom…
And what, anyway, is MoDo’s alternative strategy? Win over Eric Cantor with a few Martinis? When Mitch McConnell is fighting for his electoral life because of threats from his right, does MoDo honestly believe Obama’s Capitol Hill schmoozing would help? If John Boehner cannot control the House GOP, is it really the president’s back-slapping skills that are at fault? This is 2013. We could wish the GOP were the same as it was in the 1980s but it ain’t. Then MoDo stumbles onto the truth … and leaves it lying there on the sidewalk: His White House runs on the idea that if you are virtuous and true and honorable, people will ultimately come to you. (An ethos that “sometimes” collides with political success.)
That “sometimes” is a classic. It almost reminds me of the Monty Python Life of Brian skit about “what the Romans ever did for us”. Obama’s political style is useless, apart from becoming the first black president, saving the US from another Great Depression, succeeding at getting universal healthcare, rescuing the American auto industry, presiding over a civil rights revolution, ending two failed wars, avoiding two doomed others (against Syria and Iran), bringing the deficit down while growing the economy, focusing the executive branch on climate change, and killing bin Laden. Yes his ethos “sometimes” “collides” with political success.
But no, he has never obsessed about whom the capitol is buzzing about – i.e. boomers and their Clinton obsession. Which is proof enough of his transformation of American politics. He has transformed it so much that MoDo cannot even understand how he has been so successful.

What Republicans want to push on US
“The advocacy group Special Operations Speaks (SOS) recently announced that it is circulating a petition and would be placing billboards in Boehner’s congressional district calling out the Speaker for turning his back on the cause. “ONE MAN stands between the American people and the Watergate-style Select Committee needed to get to the truth and deliver justice. It’s not Barack Obama. It’s not Eric Holder. It’s not John Kerry either,” the email announces, “House Speaker John Boehner is the ONE MAN blocking a real investigation of Benghazi.””

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made headlines last week with the release of a study that showed obesity rates among low-income preschoolers declining for the first time in decades — down in 17 states and up in only three. On the same day, Gallup reported that the percentage of Americans who went to fast-food restaurants at least once a week had dropped by 9 percentage points since 2006.
“I think we’re right at a tipping point,” Kass said, shedding his jacket as he sat at a picnic table in the sweltering August heat. The White House garden, the first big vegetable patch on the grounds since Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden during World War II, produces about a thousand pounds of produce a year. “Last year, fruit and vegetable consumption was up 6%, which came as a great surprise. We’re seeing much greater awareness across the board about what we’re eating and how much we’re eating and trying to make sure we’re getting balanced meals on our kids’ plates.”

Dudette and others on TOD who are doing a great job tweeting but the 15 year old kid who is being denied a heart transplant, do you think his story would go viral quickly I we also added his names to the messages we are sending?
Can we add the harshtag #AnthonyStokes to out messages may be it can trend d people can ask : Who is Anthony Stokes?
It may also be helpful if we sent some messages to the hosts of Urban Radio programs
