This world can truly be a horrific place.
Gunmen suspected of being Islamic militants killed up to 50 college students sleeping in their dorms on Sunday in a rural province—the latest horrific tragedy in northeastern Nigeria’s Islamic uprising. “They attacked our students while they were sleeping in their hostels, they opened fire at them,” said Provost Molima Idi Mato of Yobe State College of Agriculture. The victims are all believed to be between 18 to 22 years of age, and almost all are Muslims. Northwestern Nigeria has been in a military emergency to battle the uprising orchestrated by Boko Haram, or the Islamic extremists, and most schools have closed since a July 6 massacre left 29 students and one teacher dead in a hostel.
These fine, fabulous men and women working their tails off for 315.9M US Citizens and the world at large.
Thank you for your service. Thank you for your dedication. Thank you for caring. It isn’t so easy. Thank You.
Lovely tribute, Nena. I’ll add my thanks!
Beautiful sentiment, Nena. Thanks!
Scott Pelley interview with John Kerry on 60 Minutes—–but keep remote handy as Norah O’Donnell interviewing BillO.
What is Bill O’Reilly’s significance? Yikes.
where is the interview…what channel
CBS 6:00 Central—60 Minutes
The republicans don’t know who they’re messing with.
Sooooooooooooooooo True, Collegekay.
Hope all is going well for you as well. Thanks for all that you do spread the message for POB and all of us. (((()))))HZ
And wish people cared 1/2 as much about the critical actual events which are happening in this country as they do about the Breaking Bad TV finale tonight.
Well said, Dotster! Or the Kardashians or Miley Cyrus, or…
Chips, I’m stuck in moderation. Help
Well that was weird. Maybe I spelled my email wrong. Getting used to the iPad lol
I found you in pending Collegekay, with all those spam ads for diet pills and body-part-enlarging suggestions. You are free!
Ah ha, I see what happened: ‘gmaio’ instead of ‘gmail’!!
a number of GOP House reps are now saying that they will vote for a clean resolution….ummmm….where were they last night….
Ground Cruz Control to Major Tom?
Okay, seriously, my hunch is what Amk wrote a few threads back. C-SPAN callers must be a good representation of folks calling their congressional members and telling them to shape up. There are about 40 plus TBGOPers in districts that PBO won in both 2008 and 2012.
My honest guess
I think way more than 18 Rs are getting clobbered by folk in their CDs, especially those CDs that President Obama won in 2012 + those that have heavy Fed/Military employment or Fed Contractors.
We only need 18 of them to flip to D or I (likely the number would be greater than 18) and caucus for the remainder of the 113th for the Ds to be the majority. And, as noted in the tweet I posted late yesterday, it would be the crowing achievement (and much deserved) for Congressman Dingell to be the Speaker until the beginning of the 114th.
@NancyPelosi what should happen in next 36h is 30+ R’s caucus with Ds and elect Congressman @john_dingell Speaker. Cc @WhipHoyer @DCCC @OFA— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 29, 2013
Yes We Can
Dingle instead of Pelosi?
The dear former Speaker has indicated that she would not want to occupy the position again. And, given the circumstances it would likely be more stunning for Congressman Dingell to take the gavel
hmmmm…it was reported that she said that…but I have not heard it from her mouth…I must say…I have wanted her to regain THE GAVEL…
I thought I read that she denied that Bob – could be wrong the media says so many lies – difficult to find the truths.
I read that Madame Speaker took that back, Bob. Not sure.
Obviously, if the former Speaker took the gavel I’d be delighted irrespective of whether it happens in 113th or 114th.
I share your sentiment and I am hoping that some current TBGOPers would wake the freak up and serve a Nation they swore to protect.
Getting drunk and pushing buttons willy nilly.
Isn’t this was Bobfr has been saying – they will pass the law at the last possible moment – just to give the media its joy of drama
Yes indeed, 99ts! Both Bobfr and Hopefruit have been saying that. They view this as media show. For the most part, both of them are usually right.
I notice mark halperin’s twitter has been blasted since he posted about “the game”. The media see the congress as playing a game – 300 million people held to ransom and it is a game!
We need a clean raising of debt ceiling too. I am tired of this sh*t
That would Happen for POTUS is Not going to negotiate on that. He said and meant it. The fever has got to Break.

The people in that picture all look serious, but POTUS looks the most relaxed. No jaw clenching, no vein throbbing in forehead that I could see.
Do we need his “Chill out…..I got this” picture?
are those jeans that he has on…ohhh myy
Yes, I need a full length photo of him in those jeans. He usually doesn’t wear dark jeans like that.
He’s faced down tougher opponents than Boehner and his band of Congressional criminals. I knew he would remain calm because he knows what his enemies will do, even as they utterly underestimate him.
By now @NancyPelosi there must be at least 18 Rs with a clue that they should spend the remainder of the 113th in the D caucus. #TakeControl— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 29, 2013
That petition telling @NBCNews it's not ok for @ChuckTodd to shill for GOP on #Obamacare? It's up to 168k signatures.

That is wonderful, 168K. Yes!
Can we get a petition for MSNBC to get rid of Luke Russert?
Joe Scarborough for he has 4.5 hours to spew Lies…..M-F from 4:30am CT to when Chuck Todd comes in to continue the hate filled distortions.
I was thinking about that petition earlier. Maybe it’s the start of the turnaround. Perhaps we’ll be “glad” that Todd opened his big fat mouth.
In addition to the petition, Credo has arranged a massive phn brigade – I love it!
Info and some costs on Obamcare in Ohio. Advising people to take their time in choosing a plan–and to seek help—lots of options and considerations. At least a straight forward accounting—-a media outlet just trying to inform. Imagine!
A non-GOP-shilling news source???? Stunned!!! Thank you Dotster!
SOS Kerry is on 60 Minutes.
Glad I saw the reminders here – would have missed him!
From the intro to 60 MInutes—-according to BillO–but gee whiz, I’m having all kinds of trouble believing that the holy spirit appeared before BillO and asked him to write a book titled “Killing Jesus” and make a bunch more money.
Delusions of grandeur much? Ay yi yi.
Yeah, I heard that intro too. To me, that is crazy….not religious at all. Some kind of mental aberration for sure.
Mel Gibson kind of crazy.
What now? The Good Lord is talking to Billo? Hmm? Pope Francis said he was a sinner and the Billo is getting a talking to from Him…..God?
That O’Reilly is certifiable.
The only holy spirits BillO is hearing come in a bottle, methinks.
Good friend of Boehner
A very Large Bottle indeed IMO. Then why is BillO has not heard from God about of his hatred and lying about POB’s Administration. God, I would think looks at all of the deeds. And now BillO is lying on God. Crazy indeed. HZ
Luckily, only those who are already RWNJs are listening to him!
Most people would have been institutionalized with those kinds of delusions…

Likud MK implies Netanyahu will compromise on Jerusalem
Palestinian right of return is the the only major issue preventing a peace deal, Tzachi Hanegbi tells J Street Conference
WASHINGTON — In a rare dovish statement for a member of the right-wing Likud party, MK Tzachi Hanegbi on Sunday defended Benjamin Netanyahu’s commitment to a two-state solution, implying that the prime minister was prepared to compromise on Jerusalem and uproot settlements if PA negotiators ceded their demand for a right of return for Palestinian refugees and their descendents.

“I think we will be able to give a good answer, a win-win answer, to almost every issue, including Jerusalem, the settlements – every issue has a compromise that can be relevant to both sides,” said Hanegbi during a panel with other Israeli parliamentarians at the annual J Street Conference. “The issue of the refugees cannot be compromised. It’s either here or there.
But, the right of return is critical for the Palestinians, so how can they concede that demand, in exchange for the Israelis to stop building illegal settlements? It seems like a condition that could never be honored?
In which case I’m counting on SoS Kerry and PBO to have workable alternate suggestions – for either/both of the principal participants.
Yes – the calm, cool voices of reason.
VC, think about how ‘reasonable’ the right-wing Likud party sounds next to congressional Republicans. It has come to this–we have a lunatic fringe in charge of the US House and they sound crazier than the most notorious extremists.
Will have a new post up in, oh, about 26-ish minutes
Ha! Your new “lucky number” is 26-ish, eh?
It is – ish
May all your numbers be lucky, Chips!
Well, 26 flippin’ wasn’t, J – computer crashed soon after, now looking at 43ish minutes
I don’t blame you, honey. I don’t blame you.
LMAO!!! Why 26, as opposed to say, 27, 28, or even 25?
Or 10-ish? Used to be 10! What happened to 10?
Excuse me Hopefruit? Are you questioning my completely scientific approach to new-post-timing??????
26 is my favorite roulette number – and thinking about that it should be the age of choice for all we 21 year olds – give up on the 43ish – not cool.

What's lovely about President Obama is that people, myself included, call him "my president." You didn't hear anyone calling George W. that.— Alaina Grey (@alainagrey) September 29, 2013
This is so true, and one of the reasons why the MSM and Emoprog Left are so resentful.
even PBO refers to himself when he says ….that as long I have the pleasure of being your President…and every time he says that something stirs deep inside…simply amazing!!….smilin
Know the feeling, pf. We all have it.
smiling…sometimes it makes me cry…Jackie…

If there’s a shutdown, it’ll be 1 side’s fault – Boehner denying a bipartisan vote on a clean CR. But that will be hard for DC press to say.

Great tweet, JOB!
Thanks, nath. Wish he had the courage to answer!
Excellent response, and he seems to be getting hit pretty hard on it, but yours was definitely the best. He won’t answer, too chicken.
Thanks. I’d have to have more wine around, if he did answer, to help me over the shock!
Best question ever, JOB. Let them squirm and finally admit whose pockets they live in.
Sickening, isn’t it?
of course it “will be hard” for DC press, since the billionaires who own the DC press are paying them to say BOTH SIDE DO IT at all times, no matter how clear it is to be one side – the republicans – causing all the havoc with their traitorous activities. the press people want to keep their high-paying jobs, so they’ll never or rarely report the actual truth, since they’d get fired for doing that. we know this is how it will go down, so no need to be surprised when it happens, if it hasn’t already.

So I read an article on Politics USA about how Clinton was urging PBO to Not negotiate with the GOP and I wrote a response that since PBO was NOT negotiating I failed to see the relevance of this article. I pointed out that Clinton had negotiated away Glass Steagall, brought in DOMA and DADT which PBO fixed, so I trusted PBO on this. Well, I got 2 thumbs down!!!!
Well, I’ll give you 2 thumbs up!!!!
Thanks, I feel better already.

Betsy, people who are severely afflicted with Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS) are not interested in logic. They already believe, with almost religious certainty that Bill Clinton was a stronger and smarter President than President Obama. Take the example of Chris Matthews: Although Bill Clinton, both in 1992 (43%) and 1996 (49%), never won the votes of the majority of Americans, Matthews believes that President Obama who won the majority of American voters in 2008 (53%) and 2012 (51%) owes his re-election to the great Bill Clinton.
Nath, has Mathews ever been right about anything? If so, I must have missed it.
You can’t fix stupid, can you?
Indeed – they’d give credit to President Obama waking up in the morning to anyone else if they could. They refuse to acknowledge that this President doesn’t need instructions for each step he takes. Especially not from people whose mistakes he’s spent the last four years fixing… And if he wants their advice, he’ll ask for it.

So our share market is down 1% in the first 30 minutes of trading – nothing like Boehner letting the tail of his party cause another world recession Got to admit to being sick of the continuous hate being spewed by the GOP and the media. How can anyone support no healthcare and no food.
Maybe I’m also upset cause a leaking cistern flooded our bathroom last night. In my next life I am going to be a plumber!
