    • 35 dotster3
      August 19, 2013 at 5:17 pm

      A big sigh from me too. Tweety asks why all this early Hillary talk—–“the train has left the station” etc., as he begins his show talking about the Hillary campaign, the same as he does almost every day. He’s been one of the biggest and earliest Hillary promoters. And of course, he uses the Hillary obsession to downgrade PBO, saying his light has dimmed, or some such nonsense. Ugh. Triple ugh!

      • 36 hopefruit2
        August 19, 2013 at 5:26 pm

        That’s right – all this Hillary talk is not really about Hillary. Its the MSM’s indirect way of attacking PBO and *attempting* to re-create a 2000-like scenario , creating division and discord among DEMS, making it easier for a GOP win in 2016. The media almost never compares Hillary directly and favorably to their TRUE candidate Chris Christie, it’s always PBO somehow – as if we’re back in the 2008 DEM primary. I will be blasting out some tweets about this soon to alert folks.

    STUDY: States Aren’t Struggling To Expand Insurance Benefits Under Obamacare
    http://thinkprogress.org/health/2013/08/15/2472821/obamacare-benefit-expansion-few-problems/

    ….the process is going forward with few troubles or cost increases despite a requirement in the health law that individual policies provide a broader range of benefits than they typically do today, according to a new study….

    ….Although many insurers were already required to offer some of the more expansive essential benefits by state laws, almost every one of them had to add children’s dental and vision coverage and therapy services for the disabled under Obamacare. And as it turns out, that’s mostly gone off without a hitch.

    “Overall the states in our review are managing the shift to essential health benefits well,” said Andy Hyman of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in an interview with The Hill. “In these states, health plans offered through exchanges will offer coverage options that are comprehensive and high-quality, and will be offered at an affordable price.”…

        Well, at least there will be one less hour of his babble.

        although Ed Schultz’ victory lap on the radio today was downright offensive. I actually missed his blue collar Dem voice (although he is still fact and intellect-challenged) but man he was insufferable today.

        • 44 jacquelineoboomer
          August 19, 2013 at 5:21 pm

          I didn’t hear his victory lap on the radio, but I was imagining something like that. Maybe throughout the next couple of days, we should all tweet Ed and remind him that THE VIEWERS got him back on MSNBC and we did it for – at least in my case of rooting for that – his support of the MIDDLE CLASS. More importantly, Ed needs to remember to support President Obama who is all for the middle class!

          Anyway, glad I missed Ed today!

          • August 19, 2013 at 5:32 pm

            I want to be happy for him and for msnbc, but he was downright annoying. And as the show progressed, he got more and more full of himself which reminded me why he gets on my nerves. He cannot be gracious – he has to be a bombastic self-promoter.

            But I still prefer him to two hours of Tweety.

            Ed better never ever tell Democrats NOT TO VOTE because he’s mad at President Obama. We should NEVER let a Rethug get elected for those reasons or any reasons because it does not help the middle class, the working poor, women and minorities. Tell right wingers not to vote but not Dems.

      PA’s Corbett is a nightmare, as you know, 57. We have to do everything in our power and then some to get him kicked out in 2014. Even then, it will take a long time for a Dem governor to restore sanity to the state, especially if we continue to have a Republican majority in the state houses. We have to get more Dems in the state senate and house or PA will fall among the worst states in the country.

  22. August 19, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    This is off topic but it’s bugging me… I keep hearing politicians and pundits say “there is no Constitutional right to vote”. I’m confused…I thought the 15th Amendment extended the right to Blacks, the 19th gave the right to vote to women and the 26th extended it to 18 year-olds. What are they talking about?

    • 59 57andfemale
      August 19, 2013 at 5:40 pm

      It’s not one of the Bill of Rights – I think that’s what they mean. And it should have been. I think VRA tinkers around the definition.

      But you make a very good point: the 15th, 19th and 26th Amendments by their very nature assume a right not specifically named in the Constitution. Like the right to privacy in Roe v. Wade.

    • 60 Betsy
      August 19, 2013 at 6:24 pm

      They are ignoring the role of the amendment process. If they ignore the voting amendments, then they need to ignore the 1st and 2nd amendments too. These people do NOT know the Constitution. The Bill of Rights was not part of the original 7 articles of the Constitution either.

    • 61 nathkatun7
      August 19, 2013 at 10:50 pm

      Unfortunately, the 15th Amendment does not explicitly guarantee Blacks the right to vote. It simply prohibits the use of “race, color, or previous condition of servitude” to deny citizens of the United States the right to vote. Similarly, the 19th Amendment and the 26th Amendment, basically say that you can’t use Sex (gender) or age of people who are 18years or older, respectively, to deny citizens the right to vote. I suppose a case could be made that implicitly, if not explicitly, the 14th, 19th, and 26th Amendments affirm the Constitutionality of the right to vote. But that’s not exactly how the Courts have ruled.

      The reason the Jim Crow South got around the 15th Amendment, when they enacted provisions like poll-tax requirement, Literacy/understanding tests, that for all intents and purposes, denied the vast majority of African American Americans the right to vote, was because they were promoted as being “color blind.” This was also in response to two Supreme Court cases, handed down in 1876, (U.S. v. Reese, and U.S. v Cruikshank) which pretty much said that the 15th Amendment did not guarantee the right to vote; rather the Amendment only prohibited State governments and the Federal government (but not individuals or private groups) from using “race, color, or previous condition of servitude” to deny citizens the right to vote.

      The 1965 Voting Rights Act tried to remedy these supposedly “color-blind” laws, which were plainly color conscious, and had, along with other tactics, denied Black people the right to vote since the 1890’s.

      In many ways the current voter suppression laws are quite similar to those enacted during the Jim Crow era. On the surface (like the Literacy and poll-tax requirements for voting) they appear to be color blind. But in actuality they are particularly aimed at making it difficult for people of color and young people to vote; just as the Jim Crow disfranchisement laws were specifically aimed at preventing Blacks from voting. The architects of these new voter suppression laws, which on the surface appear to be color blind, know exactly who they are aimed at.

      I think what is needed today is an explicit Constitutional Amendment that clearly states that the right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no state governments can curtail or interfere with it. Unless we have such an explicit Constitutional Amendment, people, like Justice Antonin Scalia, would still long to go back to the practice of “our founding fathers” who limited the franchise only to males with property. Moreover, in the current situation, it depends on which state you reside in when it comes to exercising your right to vote. People who reside in states that allow same day registration on election day have more rights than those who reside in states that have arbitrary cut-off dates for registration. The same is true about states who allow early voting and those who don’t. It’s no surprise that Republicans in North Carolina did away with same day registration on election day as well as reducing the time for early voting. They both enabled young people and African Americans, who disproportionally vote Democratic, to vote in higher numbers.

      The right wingers on the U.S. Supreme, as well as the right wingers in Republican controlled State governments, know fully well that if the majority of Americans were allowed to vote, without any impediments, the current Republican party, driven by the extremist tea baggers, would be history.

    And another thing…regarding “Stop and Frisk”….why don’t some of these well informed opinionators (I made that up) ever point out the fact that New York is a predominately minority city. According to the last census, the city is only 33% white and many of them are European born. The remaining 67%… people of color… Latino, Black, Asian. That’s an important fact when you want to discuss race-based statistics.

    • August 19, 2013 at 6:42 pm

      BS like this happens:

      1) When you’re young and inexperienced (hard to see things from another POV other than you and your echo-chamber)
      2) You haven’t had to “work” a day in your life (he was handed his WaPo/MSNBC job because he was blogging for Prospect while in college)
      3) You’re an arrogant jackass, almost as bad as Greenwald (but not as venomous) and there’s no one around to let you know this

      People may wonder why this story is generating so much attention. I think it’s because it’s an opportunity to expose the MSM for what they are: cheerleaders and promoters for their fellow “journalists,” incapable of reporting without their own POV.

      I think what bugs me the most about emoprogs is their insufferable smugness.

      There are plenty of tweeters pushing back at the holier-than-thou emoprogs. Here’s one.

    HEADLINE: In Martha’s Vineyard, Obama takes some R&R — and we all take a look

    // MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass. — It was Saturday night in Edgartown, and on the town’s sidewalks, behind lines of police tape and stern-looking officers, excited onlookers craned for a better view. Children were raised aloft onto older shoulders, their faces lighted up by the bluish glow of hundreds of smartphones. The crowd had been gathering for almost two hours and now, as a convoy of black SUVs and gray minivans started their engines, everyone was anticipating action. “Beyoncé’s coming,” a photographer jokingly called out.

    In truth, an arguably bigger celebrity was expected: the president of the United States, with the rest of the first family in tow. As a Times of London journalist who is on loan to The Post for a few months, I find the extent of the cult of celebrity surrounding the Obamas striking. Throughout last week, the president looked like a man who, on a rare excursion from the intensity of living in one of the most famous buildings in the world, wanted nothing more than to be left alone for a few days. And yet the crowds and the media were determined to ensure he wasn’t.

    …Here, islanders have repeatedly told me that Martha’s Vineyard prides itself on being unfazed by its regular high-profile guests. But throughout last week, it was clear that, although movie stars, talk-show hosts and comedians might be left undisturbed, many are unable to contain their excitement when POTUS is in town. //

    If you want to do something to help get Obamacare implemented in your state, now is the time to begin. Through your church or community organization you can begin the process of informing and registering people for health care coverage. Today I heard back from “Cover Oregon” the new Health Care exchange in Oregon for the Affordable Care Act. I am going to make a presentation to the Outreach group at our church on the Afforable Care Act and how we can help as an organization so I had contacted Cover Oregon and had asked for more information on how my church could provide education, support, and assistance in enrolling needy and homeless families that we work with in our outreach programs. I received this back:

    “Good Morning Bill,

    Thank you for contacting us. I am pleased to hear that your church is reaching out to its members and we would be more than happy to give you all the information you need. We want to reach out to all Oregonians, including those of faith communities. I’m going to provide you with a number of different resources that you may find beneficial, should you have any questions you are always welcome to give us a call at the service center where we have representatives available to answer questions (M-F from 8:00AM-5:00PM) or you may reach out through email, whichever is easiest for you.

    Here at Cover Oregon we do have guest speakers who are available to come to your church and share information with your members as well as answer questions. If that is something you would like to arrange you can give us a call and we can assist with filling out a request. The number for our service center is 1-855-CoverOR.

    Another option that may interest you may be having your church become an affiliated community partner with Cover Oregon. Cover Oregon is partnering with the Oregon Health Authority to expand outreach to underserved populations. As part of this program, Cover Oregon and OHA will work with community partner organizations to provide local, on-the-ground outreach and application assistance for individuals and families. Community partner organizations may have staff and/or volunteers trained to conduct application assistance. Required training for potential assisters includes an online prerequisite followed by an in-person training session. Additionally, partner organizations must enter into a formal agreement with OHA as a community outreach and enrollment grantee, provider enrollment grantee or as a volunteer organization. If this is something that may benefit your community you can find more information about Community Partners and register by visiting this link http://www.coveroregon.com/who-we-help/community-partners/.

    We also have marketing materials available for you to order (at no cost) through our print shop. This is a great resource for printing brochures or flyers for any upcoming meetings you may have at your church or to have brochures on hand to hand out to church members. You can access the store by clicking on the link provided, you will first need to get registered and set up with a username prior to ordering. https://coveroregon.gisimarketing.com/Registration.asp

    So that you have some more immediate access to some information, I have also attached some FAQ’s to this email which you can print. We also encourage you to sign up for our e-mail list, so that you can receive the latest information about Cover Oregon. You can sign up through our website, http://www.coveroregon.com/index.php.

    Thank you again for contacting us, and please let us know if we can be of further assistance.”

I would like to think the different services offered and the obvious willingness to help are available in all states. Good luck in your outreach at your church, and may you have lots of Outreach members stepping up to work with you.

    7 yr. old shot in Chgo last night by a stray bullet as he was trying to carry his bike up his front steps to take it in for the night. He suffered gun wounds to his arm and shoulder and was released from the hospital today, but his mother said he is traumatized and doesn’t want to come outside any more. He was one of “over 30″ gunshot victims over the weekend, 6 fatalities. (other news reported 36 shot and 9 fatalities). A 14 yr. old was shot this afternoon and just heard that 5 more were shot within the last hour, standing on a corner. Lester Holt did a segment on the gun violence problem in Chgo on Nightly News. They interviewed the medical personnel in one of the hospitals that receive a lot of these victims. They said they are able to save more than in the past but they are seeing more with multiple gunshots, the patient with the most so far had 28 gunshot wounds. Chicago is such a great city, but so many in some communities are living in a war zone now. Something needs to be done about all the guns and the continuing gun violence.

      I posted a tweet earlier today about background checks for all guns bill passed in Illinois – did you see it? Progress is being made – slowly but surely.

        Yes, I saw it. The problem is the majority of the guns are flooding into Chgo from Indiana where there is no background check, no nothing. It’s a Yay Guns! state. So even tho I welcome this progress—background checks on all guns in Illinois— it’s going to take a lot more than that to make a dent in this seemingly out of control gun violence. I just don’t see how we can continue to allow all these kids to grow up under this kind of violent atmosphere—–it will damage them for a lifetime.

    So happy for the Obama family…..a new puppy! What could be better than one dog…..TWO!!! She is absolutely adorable, and will give them many years of joy. From my experience, I think each dog really likes a dog companion. Our Chanel is really missing Rose, whom we lost in June. We are going back and forth about getting a second one, but…….really haven’t recovered from the loss of Rose yet. However, we know Chanel misses her buddy.
    Sunny is adorable, and looks like her name is just right!!!

    See? Republicans are in cahoots with greenwald!

    Senate Republicans vow to investigate NSA’s privacy violations
    By Ramsey Cox
    Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) vowed Monday to investigate “what laws were broken” by the Obama administration when the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was violated.
    “It appears the Obama administration has abused the authority granted to them by Congress,” Inhofe said Monday.
