      Hey back at you Almab!

      I love our president, yes I do.
      I love our president, how about you?

      Wait a minute, saying that just reminded me of Vitamin Lover, and the fact that I haven’t seen her in quite a while. She was the one who usually who started that refrain in the village. I wonder where she is, like I’m wondering when Cookemom is going to resurface so I can wave at her, and breathe a sigh of relief.

      “He is so photogenic” – which upsets the WHPC beyond their usual upsets

    Now, what’s that tiny little chap in a vest doing among those senior looking dudes greeting the president? He can’t be the same age as those around him for sure.

    Scandal is on tonight and I’ve got one of my favorite ice-creams in the freezer waiting for me. It’s a good day.

    POTUS has ordered for Flags to be Flown at Half-Staff on 11-22-13 in remembrance and to Honor JFK.

    Ok, tonight’s menu:

    Pan-sauteed top sirloin
    Oven-roasted veggies and red potatoes

    And, of course, gimlets. Glorious gimlets.

    The fact that Facebook doesn’t find this to be a problem right around the time of JFK’s assassination is very telling…

    Someone posts this on facebook – and Facebook owners/moderators do NOTHING about it?!?!?

    // We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him. His willful violations and alienation of our Constitution, constant disregard for our peaceful protests and corruption of all the three branches of government, (i.e., rogue and illegitiimate government), reveal the dictator that he is. Obama and his co-conspirators disrespect our Constitution (constitutional rule of law) and abuse the American people. The authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution: He is levying war on the United States and aiding and comforting our foreign enemies — the 2nd Amendment gives us the right and duty (authority) to engage an enemy of the United States that does so with the design to reduce us under absolute Despotism. I would be very surprised, if Obama does not leave Washington DC today (Nov. 19th) …never to return, if he is not dead within the month. PLEASE JOIN US AT CHRISTIAN AMERICAN PATRIOTS MILITIA: //

    I get home from a long day and couldn’t wait to get on TOD and read all that has gone on today. I kept getting texts about what happened today. So proud of Reid. Sure glad our President finally gets to do his job.

    Bobfr, thank you for all the great work you have been doing to help get us to this point. Your persistence is greatly appreciated!!!!

    Hellooooooooo everyone. A re-post for anyone who missed it earlier.

    Akismet are the bunch who deal with spam on WordPress, they filter out all the crazy stuff that floods in to WP comments.

    But they screw up, a lot, and today a whole bunch of you have ended up in spam repeatedly.

    From what I’ve read, this suggests Akismet have mistakenly added your usernames to their spam list, so you need to contact them to tell them they’ve screwed up.

    You can do it here: http://akismet.com/contact/

    Click anywhere outside that comment box and choose the ‘I think Akismet is catching my comments by mistake’ option, and take it from there.

    It’ll only take a minute, and generally they sort it out quickly.

    I have contacted them today to tell them what’s happening, but I think each person having the problem has to contact them too.

    A. Pain. In. The. Butt.

    Calling it a day…even though it’s early…it was a field trip day today and those always wipe me out:) Saw a very good play today based on a book titled, ” The Quiltmaker’s Gift” …excellent message…and as I listened and watched all I could think of was all the selfish RWNJ’s…..Night all.

    Maybe LL is familiar with this….great book to have storytime with and talk about.

      Those pictures of little POTUS and FLOTUS is so cute. I remember when FLOTUS was on Jay Leno he was showing a picture of little FLOTUS standing on the frame of a swing set with no swings.

    It is absolutely infuriating that the MSM has sunk to this low (criticizing WH photogs).

    Where were the complaints with Reagan’s photog, a wonderful photographer named @PeteSouza?

    Or Ford’s (I’ll see if I can find a tweet I sent out this summer about this).

    Stunning that upChuck is a mouthpiece for crabby Fournier (think it was Nena who posted that video).

    MSM, please get a grip and try to actually work instead of deciding the “meme of the day” that the entire MSM beltway echo-chamber will regurgitate until the next meme is decided upon.

    Shameful, exhausting and really a waste of everybody’s time.
