I am totally lost as to what the topic du jour is, but I do know I’m #BlessedToBeAliveInHisTime.
Which talk, Utal?
Oh, that one. Okay.
you know very well WHICH talk, VC!! THE talk!! Bye y’all!!! xoxox
Hi Speedy! Or is it Flash? Things still moving nicely along, I hope. ;)
Times Dispatch reports Sen Deeds' son had a "mental health evaluation performed under an emergency custody order" yesterday (1/2)— Rachel Maddow MSNBC (@maddow) November 19, 2013
Wonder if that pushed him over the edge? We’ll never know. I sure do hope they are able to stabilize his father.
No psychiatric bed was available and so the son was released from the mental health facility. Unbelievable.
I couldn’t believe it when I read that, dotster. How on earth could they not find one bed in the state of Virginia. This young man was obviously seriously disturbed.
I suspected a mental issue, but thought it would have been wrong of me to have speculated. I feel so sorry for him and his family. I hope his father makes it. It is being reported as multiple stab wounds.
Our mental health system is just awful……..
I went through this multiple times with my daughter in law last year and this year……
They never released her due to no bed though….they just kept her until a bed became available….but she was also transferred multiple time to multiple facilities…….
Just recently…when she was at a counseling session she was asked if she ever thought about “suicide ” and she answered yes..
After she got home from the session…..the police showed up to take her away . Her counselor called them….Once again she was taken to the local hospital and kept there until a bed was available…and then tranferred once again….They kept her several days.
Needless to say…she has stopped going for counseling and is not taking her medication.
I’m so sorry for what your daughter and you and your whole family are going through. I send all my prayers to you, Linda.
Thank you for that….
Linda, no our mental health system is just fine, just ask the Republicans and the sorry anti-Obama media.
Her bills are over 100k and NO insurance.
So sorry, Linda. Sometimes the way the mental health system works is just incomprehensible.
Jay’s at the Podium…..
VC……You are TODably quick and Congratulations, Madam
:grin: Tell Jay ‘hi’ for me, Nena. I refuse to join him while the jackals are in the room; totally not good for my blood pressure.
Jay is terrific and is as patient as JOB. He needs the support, telepatically, no doubt. Sending him some TODable vibrations ;)
Hey Jay. TODers say Rock On ;)
*He* is so patient, he makes *me* want to slap them upside the head. I could not work with those jackals without losing my cool; I absolutely couldn’t! Not just because they are stupid and slow, but because they are snarky and disrespectful with it.
Thank yoooooooou UT, I was trying to get a post done and got hauled away again, so treble thank yoooooous!
I notice you didn’t try to say that Danny ate your homework post this time, so I’m proud of you! I figured you’ve decided to only blame the little man once per day and that’s pretty reasonable of you. Just saying.
It WAS Danny’s fault VC, but he reads the blog now so I don’t want him to see me giving out about him.
A-ha! So he gets blamed twice, with the second one being all all encompassing. Hmmm.
/waving/ Way to keep her on her toes, Danny O!
Thanks for opening the door, Utal. It was getting a bit chilly outside. I have to add that I’m a bit old for ‘The Talk’, so I’ll simply wander through the village quietly, if you don’t mind.

Congrats on 1st VC.
Thank you UT for the new thread.
From the bottom of the previous post …. please do press Senator Reid to do what obviously must be done …
@SenatorReid The #GOP have broken the Senate. They'd never allow #Dems to do what they've done. #NukeTheFilibuster & halt #GOPObstruction.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) November 19, 2013
Yes We Can
Y, TY, Bfr! ;)
I have decided to ‘help you’ – every time I see one of Harry’s tweets about what the GOPs have done with PBO nominees I ask him what he’s doing about it. I can’t figure out why he thinks we don’t see what they are doing. What we need to know is ‘What’re you gonna do about it, Harry?’
Thank you VC!!!
“I can’t figure out why he thinks we don’t see what they are doing. What we need to know is ‘What’re you gonna do about it, Harry?’”
Exactly. We know the score and the Majority are not being served by those whom we elected. America is not being served by allowing #GOP Obstruction to continue.
*Bond set @ $9,000
*No contact with girlfriend
*No weapons possession
*No traveling outside state

Update on the monster.
Judge Fred Schott now addressing #GeorgeZimmerman. Informing GZ of his rights to trial, appeal, attorney, etc.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
Judge: "I do find probable cause for all three allegations" against #GeorgeZimmerman.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
Prosecutor: Victim "is in fear for her safety." Wants #GeorgeZimmerman barred from any contact or coming to her home.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
State wants #GeorgeZimmerman to not have any guns, no leaving state, no passports.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
State requests $50,000 bond. Says victim didn't report to police another recent incident which involved choking.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
Defense asks for $4,900 bond. Zimmerman "would have some locations" in C. Fla. where he could say, public defender says.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
Judge orders #GeorgeZimmerman to have no weapons while on bond, no contact whatsoever with the victim.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
#GeorgeZimmerman's bond will be $9,000, judge rules. No returning to victim's house, except with cops to get his stuff.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
Next #GeorgeZimmerman court date: Jan. 7, 2014. GZ will be on GPS monitoring as well.— Jeff Weiner (@JeffWeinerOS) November 19, 2013
Why did the judge wish Zimmerman the “best of luck”?
I have no clue. That seemed strange to me. I can only assume maybe this is part of the judge’s everyday court character and he says that to everyone who comes before him?
This country needs serious mental health reform. I’m glad President Obama made sure mental health is covered under #ObamaCare and must be treated as any other physical illness but Congress has got to do its part.

And who is to be blamed for my insomnia?
/all innocence/ How should I know?
I’m embarrassed by the sorry health care sign up figures from PA under our despicable governor. It’s like living with an ugly anchor around the neck of the state.

So the Killed Zimmerman choked this same girl a week ago too?
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A prosecutor says George Zimmerman’s girlfriend claims he choked her about a week ago but she didn’t report it to police at the time.
The prosecutor told a judge about the allegation during a first appearance Tuesday on domestic violence-related charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.
The judge set George Zimmerman’s bond at $9,000 and ordered that he not possess guns or ammunition. He was ordered to stay away from the girlfriend’s house and wear a monitoring device.
George Zimmerman is going to end up killing another person, I hope I am wrong. But it’s clear Zimmerman has problems and his sorry butt ought to be in prison.
