BREAKING: Source tells @CBSNews that VP Biden's son Beau has been admitted to MD Anderson Cancer Center to undergo tests -@CharlieKayeCBS— (@NewsBreaker) August 20, 2013
Let’s all keep Beau and VB Joe and the rest of the Biden family in our thoughts and prayers. I hope it’s something that can be found and is fully treatable.
Concerning regarding the cancer center admittance. I also am hoping for the best possible outcome for Beau and the Biden family, as I’m sure we all are.
Hopefully, they can find out the root of the problem and help him and get him well. Good Luck Beau Biden.
Sending all the good wishes and thoughts in the universe to him and the entire Biden family.
These adorable canines! I can’t help oohing and aahing at each new photo.
Sitting pretty! :-)
Bo is THRILLED to have new playmate. That much I can tell! :)
Bo looks extra happy.
Saw one mere mention that Sunny is Bo’s sister. Is this true? Inquiring minds want to know.
I don’t think so. Bo was a gift from the late sen Ted Kennedy. Sunny is from MI.
But then again, it is plausible. Sunny looks a tad different…..her face and Bo’s face look different. Could it be a Boy/Girl thing? I an totally uneducated where canines are concerned.
I just know what I read on the WH website. They casually called Sunny Bo’s sister. Whether that meant by blood or not, I’m not sure. A term of endearment we dog owners often use between our adopted pets whether they are blood related or not; even our human kids are referred to as their brothers and sisters. We’re a crazy bunch. Especially empty-nesters. ;)
I get it now….. :roll: :lol:
My sister-in-law is constantly making reference to wondering how her kids are doing. At first I was perplexed upon hearing that. Then I was at her place when she referred to herself as “Mommy” while talking to her two cats in a squeaky high pitched voice. Okay! BTW she is single, and retired with no children.
Yes, we’re Mom and Dad. When Dad says Mom it’s sounds like mum. ;)
Oh and we have two grown boys.
FLOTUS seems to be enjoying tweeting pics of her two dogs. And the tweets get re-tweeted as soon as they appear :-)
Thank you VL.
Dear Rachel, Terrorism Under Veil of Journalism is Still Terrorism.
// Last night, Rachel Maddow used the first part of her show on MSNBC to go on an insane rant about Glenn Greenwald’s boyfriend (as well as partner in crime) being detained by the British authorities at London’s Heathrow airport. In the segment titled “Journalism is not terrorism,” Maddow incessantly bellyached that Britain was abusing its anti-terrorism law to try to stop journalistic activity by Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras in reporting on NSA activities – which, if Rachel believes is unconstitutional, she needs a crash course in the fourth amendment – disclosed to them by the American fugitive and Russian guest Edward Snowden. “Journalism is not terrorism,” Rachel lamented over and over, in the process chiding the United States for not objecting to Miranda’s interrogation despite having advanced knowledge of it.
In addition the hilarious juxtaposition of someone who generally despises the US government telling other countries what to do suddenly getting bent out of shape because the Americans didn’t tell Great Britain what to do, in her cult-like worship of Glenn Greenwald, Maddow also decided to patently ignore the essential cornerstone of journalism herself – namely the idea that before going on righteous talk-radio style rants, one ought to wait for all the facts. All the facts about why Miranda may have been detained – that, as I pointed out, his activities of transporting stolen property (US and UK classified documents) may well have been a pa /rt of instigation of espionage by his partner and Poitras – and the facts about what terrorism is under UK and US laws. //
Just finished reading that, I didn’t watch Rachel’s piece, I haven’t watched her in months & months. But it sure is telling the stupid emo-progs out there.
My country ’tis…..right, as the song goes? Perhaps, Dr. Maddow, Snowden, GG, etc should tell most of Us their definition of Country. Rachel spouts support of Troops……Vets, mostly. I would go out and bet everything I have…..that 98% of our would recoil at Manning or the acts by Snowden. Betrayal is Not what these brave men and women gave their lives for.
According to HP (I am not posting the link) Rachel Maddow (MSNBC): $7 million/year!!!!!!!
Wow….she started at $1M when Keith Olberman convinced MSNBC to hire her. Good for her. JoeScar is paid $6M and his ratings is not all that great.
Good for her? I cannot in good faith feel good about someone who earns far more than they should by aiding and abetting terrorists and using their platform to spread misinformation.
Sorry, but that’s just the way I feel about Rachel right now. She has sold herself to the highest bidder and the shame is hers.
Well, had I said Not good for her, then I could easily be accused of have some envy or being Jealous…….by TOD Observers…… ;)
I don’t care who accuses me of envy or jealousy – please proceed.
My core belief is that Rachel has not merited the insane salary that she’s being paid on MSNBC. She is grossly overpaid, and as a result, it is diminishing the quality and integrity of her work.
Yep…..overpaid….like the rest of Cabler hosts, unfortunately. I agree with your analysis.
Oh no wonder she thinks she’s smarter than PBO…she’s making $7 mil, and he’s making a measly 400K (for doing 50 times as much work)…
50X………Noooooooooooo. I say 50 Life Times worth.
Being president of these USA at this Time is more like FDR and Lincoln took on…..if we have to closely dare to compare.
How in the world could she possible be worth that much? Unless she has millions and millions watching her every move, ridiculous!!
Thank you meta – you took the words right out of my brain. Nothing she has done or will do in her capacity as an MSNBC pundit justifies that insane salary.
It gives a whole new meaning to the term “inflation” in anyone’s dictionary.
And with these inflated salaries come inflated egos, and out-of-bounds behavior. Rachel has sold herself to the highest bidder, but I hope she’s prepared to deal with the consequences (which will come sooner or later).
Mercyyyyy…Spandan…. delivers a knock out Punch…..Ding ding ding……Round over!!!!
;) Congrats CarolMae……..Gold shines brightly on You, madam. :)
Thanks Nena. Love the Gold. :grin:
Prayers are with the Biden family. Sending healing thought to Beau. Just catching up on what is happening today.. Those dogs are absolutely Gorgeous. Hi All. :)

Anyone with Al Jazeera America? Have you watched it yet? Any comments? Feedback would be nice. Thank You.
In two weeks, I am dutching the Charter Communications for one that offers Al Jazeera. I am hoping that it will be better than CNN.
Sorry, I don’t get the channel.
I had it until today….
AT&T in Atlanta dropped them. !!!!!!!
I had read that. The excuse was that AT&T and AJAM could not reach an agreement? Seriously? AT&T had had an agreement with CurrentTV, didn’t they?
Yes… when I called they said they ” could not discuss contracts “
Same story Time Warner in NYC!!! No AlJazeera anywhere now, not AJEnglish, let alone AJ America not to mention no CBS, Showtime, etc.
My cable bill is sky high and they keep taking channels down. How does this end???

Seven Maine GOP Officials Leave Party In Name Of Libertarian Cause http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/seven-maine-gop-officials-leave-party-in-name …
So when they tell you that the GOP’s numbers are shrinking – that is only half the story. Most of these critters have simply joined the “Libertarian” facist movement, which is just as bad, if not worse than the mainstream GOP party. They hide in this movement where they can recruit naiive & unsuspecting “liberals,” young people, particularly young white males, and fringe members of society to launch their nasty work -while remaining hidden and “above the fray.”
Hypocrisy, thy name is GOP.

I’m guessing PBO knew this was going to happen. Wouldn’t be surprised to see other Republican governors joining Perry down the road.
I just received a bill from the IRS for our business …….
We owe… 24 cents !
Wow…..24 whole cents :?:
I am Jealous. Congrats :?:
Whoa!!!!! will you set up a payment plan….
They sent it first class for 43 cents.
I can’t wait to call them tomorrow….
Calling Michele Bachmann ;) …..the self proclaimed former IRS Tax Lawyer (Not a Lawyer for she Never passed a Law bar to practise in MN) or should I call up the Darrell Issa office……perhaps, he can best get that going……You know with all his intimate hearings on the IRS in OH? The guy would get it down in a jiffy ;)
It’s Obama’s fault, ruining businesses and over taxing them.

He’s lost his mind.
And if PA re-elects Corbett in 2014, then I have no pity.
However, this information just made me chuckle to myself and shake my head.
Mega brill posting today UT, as ever, thank you legend!
You’re welcome. :D
Are you home Chips..if so now I feel better…The Obama family and Chips are back home safe and sound!
Safe and sound, thank you Layla!!
So, Chips Chica, what did you bring from your trip for me – jewelry? A cool outfit that I can paint the town in tonight? The (young, unmarried) pilot?
I brought you my pilot, VC! Give me your address and I’ll send him on:
Not so fast! Does he meet my stated criteria? Plus this one looks a bit wild-eyed – what about the co-pilot; any better?
You’re so fussy. Okay, here’s my co-pilot. Better?
CC, if this one makes it down, he’s a definite possibility. I mean, he’s smart enough to research when he doesn’t have the answers. ;) ;)
:lol: Would you not prefer him to do the research before he, you know, takes off?
Didn’t you see my wink-wink? :lol: :lol: He obviously hadn’t, so ‘better late than never’. :grin:
Happy to have you back ‘safe and sound‘ secure (where we can keep 2 eyes on you)? solvent (as in not drowning the credit card while away)? satisfied(with the break away)?
Hey! welcome home Chipsticks!!!!
Thank yoooooooooooou GGail – although I’m already missing my dingle dongle!
We’ll give you enough grief and pain for you to forget all of your foreign troubles – LOL!!!
:shock: You left your masterpiece behind???!!! /smh/ Such carelessness! Now someone else is likely to patent it and leave you out in the financial cold!
Fear not VC, I brought my baby home! But it is now kinda redundant, unless my broadband-ingle fails….. which is a distinct possibility!
Oh! Phew! You scared me there for a minute. You need to have the masterpiece handy, just in case – lately WordP has been doing lots of ‘stuff’ that confuses.
WP is a MESS!!!!!!
Welcome home Chips!!! :)

I think Pete Souza is having a blast with the FiDOTUS!!
meta, I went to Pete’s photography website and to his Instagram site – they both have very interesting pics. The man is simply amazingly talented. And if anyone complains about his pics of Pres. Obama, then they should go to his photo website and check out the photo’s he took of former Pres. Reagan.
Oh please share the link to the website. :grin:

Just announced: POTUS will welcome PM Singh of India to the White House on September 27. Looking forward to your visit, @PMOIndia— Ben Rhodes (@rhodes44) August 20, 2013
PMSingh and his wife were the first POTUS state dinner honorees. Remember the kerfuffle with the Salawhis?
She has ran off with the Band Journey’s Founder and the Husband is bitter about the whole thing……..hmm?
Yes, I do. Adios, Desiree Rogers.
Very nice. :) Will our amk escort her on the visit?
Off to get ready for work! Last night shift, then working one week of day shifts…yeah!!!!! Everyone have a great evening and night! Cannot wait to catch up in the morning!
Thought I would just post even though I have been away for a week and am not up on what is going on. My youngest daughter 31yrs was married this weekend. It was a destination wedding at the historic Heceta Head Lighthouse, a beautiful site on the Oregon Coast. It involved a tea and arrival day with bachelorette and bachelor party, a rehearsal day with meal, the wedding day and reception, then a farewell brunch the following day. At first I thought why so much and so many days? They paid most themselves as they have been together the last two years. The 65 people attending were from Bahrain, Munich, Chicago, DC, AK, FL, MN, CT, NY, CA, TX, CA, NV, WA, and OR. There were probably other places too that I missed. I am now tired, but happy.
Ooooh wonderful fun you must have all had. Congrats to your daughter, her hubby, you and all the family
Congrats! It must have been lovely with all those international connections, Grandmama! Best wishes and a happy future for one and all!
Oh, wow! That’s a beautiful spot on the Oregon Coast! Congratulations to your family!
Is this our Mayor? wp.me/p2Qb1y-kJ via @wordpressdotcom— Pretty Foot (@PrettyFootWoman) August 20, 2013
In a surprisingly cold, listless drone, the Mayor rattled off the standardized line on why to close schools and shutter educational programs – underutilization, budgets. Not once did he mention the fact that 80% of children in schools closed will go to schools which perform no better than the ones they attend. Not once did he talk about the impact of closing nine high schools, disrupting the lives of children in their most vulnerable years. Not once did he talk about the impact of 3,783 layoffs in a city struggling with poverty and unemployment. Not once did he talk about the quality of education in our schools when you cut every single guidance counselor and librarian and classroom aide, or when you eliminate sports, art, music, extracurriculars and other school programs. And not once did he hold Pennsylvania’s worst education governor in history accountable for these failures.
Michael Nutter…appeared on All in with Christ Hayes to talk about the crisis of Philadelphia Schools..
PF, when is the next race for Phillie governor. Nutter does not seem up to the job.
he cannot run again….he has two terms
