          Thanks, darlin’. I’ve actually been having a “birthday week” (read: milking it), thanks to my son and friends who’ve remembered! Biggest part of the day tomorrow will be receiving my call from my great grandson (no offense to the others) … fun to see how much better he can pronounce “happy birthday” each year. He’s always so enthusiastic about everything, ya can’t help but smile!

    Can you just imagine the interactions between our wonderful President & VP this evening as they looked Boehner and his fellow terrorists in the eye, gestured to a chain, and pulled it ….. FLUSH …..

      Well Amk since the crisis also has Americans angry and scared, we’re united in a world-wide fury against the same foe. Wish we had
      a way to let other countries know that we truly think as ‘one’ in our contempt for the GOP hostage takers.

        And then some! A recurring role like the E-trade baby, or the Progressive insurance woman will make him bank. My understanding is most of these contracts stipulate that the actor gets paid a royalty everytime the ad airs!

          Yup. That’s the way it works. I had a friend that did a McDonalds tv spot over 40+ years ago. The last time he got $’s was 10 years after he did the ad.

    Rachel did an article on religious/GOP sponsoring group that went to Russia to help convince their legislature to write laws against LGBT. Newest is to take children from those families and put them in orphanages. Leaders of the US religious delegation were touting how Putin is a real leader and saying how citizens here need to rise up against our government. My thoughts are if that is what they want they should just go live in Russia and leave here.

      Happy Birthday Jacqueline!!!!

      Now, must get some rest …. btw, nath, if you see this, thank you for your excellent comment two threads back, re Sec 4 & 5 of the 14th.

        October 11, 2013 at 3:26 am

        Bob, you are most welcome! I am sure you know how deeply I value and respect all that you are doing to alert everyone about the Constitutional obligation required of Congress to honor U.S. debts. For any one who cares to read the Constitution, this obligation can be found in both Article I, Section 8, and, as you’ve been forcefully highlighting, Section 4 of the 14th Amendment. What is also instructive about the importance the Framers of the U.S, Constitution attached to honoring U.S. debts can be found in Article VI. Here is what the first paragraph of Article VI of the Constitution says:

        “All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.”

        The Framers had no qualms honoring the debts of the 13 loosely confederated colonies before the formation of the United States. Yet we have these utterly insane Republicans ready to default on debts that were authorized by Congress. They are ready to do that despite the fact that Congress is required to pay U.S. debts by Article I, Section 8; and despite the fact that Section 4 of the 14th Amendment plainly states: “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law…shall not be questioned.”

        What I’ve been trying to grapple with is who has the power to make Congress abide by its Constitutional obligations. Clearly, under Section 5 of the 14th Amendment, It’s Congress that has the power to enforce all the sections of the Amendment. I suppose, the Courts, particularly the U.S. Supreme Court, could step in and declare that Congress is violating the Constitution by failing to honor U.S. debts. Ultimately, though, It’s WE THE PEOPLE, who must step in and force members of Congress to honor their Constitutional mandates.

        • October 11, 2013 at 10:03 am

          “Ultimately, though, It’s WE THE PEOPLE, who must step in and force members of Congress to honor their Constitutional mandates.”

          That’s what motivates both of us, for sure, nath. It is up to us to do whatever we can.

          Thank you for another very fine comment. So appreciate your insights and willingness to share them.
