Thanks, nospin. I’m usually 12 hours to 3 days behind! You folks leave so many treasures on every thread.
Hiya nospin, something tells me that you were annoyed with the media for some reason when you first signed up at TOD.
lolololololol Can you tell? hahahahahahaha
Hopefruit2 you are exactly right that was the reason for the name., I am so sick of BS. I can’t even allow my kids to read the papers or watch the news without screening it first.
Indeed. I feel the same way about them too.
Except in the middle of the night…also known as catch up time…with Dudette!
I’m just trying to say Hi too
Hiya GB. Good to have you among us.
Thanks Sailor – good to be among y’all.
Your contributions are so right on!

Kim Jong Un has had his uncle executed.
OMG, what a warm and fuzzy family. This is horrible.
When they started talking about him being removed from his duties, I knew that was coming. SMH!
This is the kind of guy with whom Dennis Rodman likes to party.

From what I read, the house is going to do one last vote today, and then adjourn for the Holidays. Shameful. It’s time we hold the media accountable for focusing on BS like “selfie” when there are far more serious issues to be reported on.
That Nancy Smash & Company are AWESOME!
Nancy Smash winning the day.

WATCH: White House Reporters EXPLODE At Jay Carney huff.to/1fnV6UG via @HuffPostMedia— Nelson (@Yardarm756DD) December 12, 2013
And I will repeat what I wrote regarding this on the previous thread….
Webster defines the word trust as the firm belief in the honesty, reliability of another. What in this universe would make the US press corp believe that this White House can trust them to do, say, write, or photograph anything with integrity. Look how easily those pictures of FLOTUS that supposedly started as a “joke” with a bunch of folks on twitter just having “fun”. And now those pictures are all over the place. Even the mainstream media claimed that FLOTUS was possibly upset with the President because of the selfie. When in fact nothing could have been further from the truth. A picture is worth a thousand words and they also can tell lies. Now which do you think this media will choose?
I hope this WH doesn’t give them another minute of access. They cannot be trusted and they don’t deserve it!
THIS must be tweeted —- > “What in this universe would make the US press corp believe that this White House can trust them to do, say, write, or photograph anything with integrity.”
Bravo Dudette! That would make a great tweet to circulate.
Indeed @NoShock @Dudette9t9, what would make @WHpresscorps believe that VOTERS can trust them to photograph/analyse anything with integrity?— Vick C. (@sonamie) December 12, 2013
Sounds like a plan……Don’t forget to take lots of pictures, eh?

Ed Schultz wants the Dems to vote NO on the budget deal……..he thinks it helps the Republicans to much and they can go home and brag about it being a two year deal so they can say there will be no more shutdowns . He also thinks it will neuter Ted Cruz in the Senate which is also good for the Republicans.
Will he tell us not to vote in 2014 too ?
He did in 2010, why wouldn’t he? I like Ed but, sometimes, he just goes too far…
Same here. He seldom sees the LONG term that PO does, but then, most don’t.

It is horrible Layla. Unbelievable to me how uncaring our electeds can be.
@SenatorReid, the hell with the "new year;" stay in session and get jobless aid done NOW! cc: @kharyp @reviewjournal— Alycee (@jazziz2) December 12, 2013
There is LESS leverage after the Holidays. What … the… ???
I’m honestly surprised. I thought the strategy of the democrats would be to push for the UE benefits in a stand alone bill, right after the votes on the budget.
And I thought the President would push for it VERY HARD.
I would be very very curious to know what the thinking is, in the White House and in Senator Reid’s office.
I’m pretty sure there is a strategy for january, but good grief, so many people will get hurt and be very worried.
Waiting to see what’ll happen. I KNOW President Obama CARES. Can he do something ??
UN report: Experts found evidence of probable chemical weapons use in Syria in 5 of 7 attacks investigated-@Reuters alj.am/1e8FAPk— AJAM Live (@ajamlive) December 12, 2013
I am definitely really old.
Adam Levine is the Sexiest Man Alive???!!!! When I read this I thought it was snark.
He’s cute. period.
Ed urging a “no” vote is freaked out about the UI running out. Can’t blame him for that. The don’t vote advice in 2010 was hideous but let’s hope he learned from that mistake.
Okay…..who is Adam Levine????? I’m SO old!!!!!
He is 1) lead singer of Maroon Five
2) a Good Guy—on board with ACA doing commercials and social media outreach
I like Adam—he’s got a bit of that bad boy persona that “some” find irresistible. He probably wouldn’t want to date me—just a tad too old (not a young, nubile model) (and mr. dotster would be mad—maybe) but It’s Only Rock n Roll and I like it, like it, yes I do.
3) One of the “Coaches” on TV singing competition show “The Voice”
4) Currently featured in Proactive acne medicine commercials
Cutie-pie certainly. But sexiest man alive? Really? Whatever.
So…..now, I googled this guy, and all is “ho-hum”
…..all I can say is “ho-hum.”
Exactly my thoughts, dudette
Happy Anniversary to me!—-from Word Press. Said I signed up with them 3 years ago today! So—happy anniversary to me, happy anniversary to me! Fa la la la la!

Twitter just really fucked up:
Note: If your account is public, blocking a user does not prevent that user from following you, interacting with your Tweets, or receiving your updates in their timeline. If your Tweets are protected, blocking the user will cause them to unfollow you.
They’ve basically just made the “block” function useless.
Whaaaaaat?! They can’t – SURELY – be serious??
Yep, my TL exploded.
Yep, block is dead. I was just able to follow GiGi, and I know he blocked me.
What a ridiculously stupid ‘development’, idiots.
I’m just shocked. Now Twitter will really be the Thunderdome
And they’ve just completely removed people’s right not to be friggin’ harassed by nutters – can’t believe it.
Spam blocking still works, at least for now.
They’ll probably remove that too
Sounds like they’re going the way of HuffPo.
I have thought about what HuffPo did….. Now I am convinced what it really is, is a purge of the original members because they have become very right wing .
No argument here.
Some of the HPers are ending up at planetpov, Linda.
Yes….I remember when that site launched….many many original HPers left and went there…
Well, if I can’t block ass-holes from harassing me on Twitter, I will just freaking not use Twitter. They will be fixing this soon or expect to lose a lot of users.

The senate and house republicans only consist of speeches about how shitty obamacare is…
Is this the best we can do? You mean, if they feel they will get another wave by attacking obamacare again in 2010? it means democrats stayed home !
The whole thing is sad! I hope the T Baggers put up some horrible nominees, even the score a bit, even so the Emoprogs worry me for 2014.
Already Ed Shultz is saying that every democrat should vote no on the budget deal.
