The same effing msm that aided & abetted @gop in perpetuating income inequality is now questioning an admin that is trying to reduce it?— (@amk4obama) January 27, 2014
A brain-dead woman kept alive by a hospital in Texas because she was pregnant has been taken off life support.
A court had ruled that John Peter Smith Hospital must stop life-saving measures for Marlise Munoz by Monday.
Mrs Munoz, 33, was 14 weeks pregnant when she fell unconscious in November. It is believed she had a blood clot.
Her family wanted to let her die, but the hospital had argued it had a legal duty to protect the unborn child.
Her life support was turned off at 11:29 local time (17.29 GMT) Sunday, family members told News 8.
“May Marlise Munoz finally rest in peace, and her family find the strength to complete what has been an unbearably long and arduous journey,” lawyers for the family said in a statement.
Does the US media ever report onthe stupid that is done in the name of “right to life”. No wonder the GOP and its followers hate the intertubes – only way to find out reality
Two sides to that story; both sad.
Thank yoooooooou LP, brilliant toons!!!

Syria will allow women and children to leave the besieged area of Homs “from now”, the UN mediator at the Geneva peace talks has told reporters.
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said women and children were free to leave. He alleged armed groups were preventing them from leaving.
Mr Brahimi said that the opposition had agreed to give the government lists of detainees held by armed groups.
He said it was “too early” to assess the prospects of a comprehensive deal.
He admitted the talks were proceeding slowly but said that on Monday he “expected the two parties to make some general statement about the way forward”.
Mr Brahimi said he hoped a humanitarian convoy from the UN and the Red Cross would be able to go to Homs on Monday.
Hundreds of people are reportedly trapped in besieged parts of the city, including some who are very ill.
If all goes well, the agreement on Homs would be the first concrete outcome of the peace process, the BBC’s Bridget Kendall reports from Geneva.
Hope the UN and the Red Cross are, indeed, allowed in this week. So many tragic stories in the ME.

Al-Shabab commander killed in Somali missile attack alj.am/Mhy2O0— Al Jazeera America (@ajam) January 27, 2014
A member of Somali rebel group al-Shabab was killed Sunday by a missile fired by a suspected drone, a rebel commander said, blaming the U.S. for the strike.
Abu Mohamed told The Associated Press that Sahal Iskudhuq, a militant commander who was believed to be close to al-Shabab’s top leader, was killed when his car was hit by a missile in Somalia’s Lower Shabelle region. The attack took place in a village called Hawai, he said.
A Somali intelligence official confirmed the attack, describing the victim as a “dangerous” member of the group. His driver was also killed in the attack, the official said on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to reveal the information.

First the news that good cholesterol can actually be bad.
I am turning off the intertubes before it kills me.
Wait until you see the video of her performance. The sexiness will have your blood pressure skyrocketing.
If it gets posted on Youtube, I’ll bring it over to TOD.
She did not come to play. She threw down and no one on stage has matched her since she finished her performance.
She’s just showing what a woman looks like, compared to the younger Miley Cyrus type singers who think they know. No offense to the latter, but there’s a difference between real and play.
Granny in Illinois
Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Comment of the day!
From Granny? Folks must be out.
Here you go. Beyoncé is BACK!
I guess I am old fashion, I like Beyonce, but put on some dam clothes and let the talent speak louder. She has lots of talent, there is no need of the short, short dresses, and what she had on tonight.
The woman is grown, talented, and sexy. The awards speak for themselves and the image fits her new album to a T. She is owning her sexuality and won’t apologize for it. I applaud that.
Good for you Nerdy. Everyone is entitle to their opinions, but I feel the way I feel.
‘put on some dam clothes’
i’m with you, anniebella. her amazing voice, her wondrous phrasing and delivery–the sexy act distracts, imho.

Oh great. School closings for tomorrow already are all over the teevee. I’m done with you, SNOW!!!!! It’s ohvah between us.
That makes two of us. I just filed for a legal separation between me and Snow. I am FED UP.
I’ll give Snow the animals and the record collection, if it leaves me alone.
LMAO! I’ll give Snow the front door mat if it leaves me alone
I’ll go to the senior prom with Snow, zits on its face and all, if it leaves me alone.
I’ll send Snow my favorite PBO picture, if it leaves me alone.
(Wow. I thought I was sick of snow.)
I’ll send Snow a Ziploc bag full of these Chewy Chips Ahoy Gooey CARAMEL-Filled Soft Cookies I’m eating, if it leaves me alone. Minus the caramel, of course, which I will suck dry.
ROFL – I can’t beat that one! Hahahahaha…..
I’ve been reading these to my granddaughter and I jokingly said, “We could probably go on all night with these; sounds like she’s as bored as I am with the snowstorms from hell” and she said, “It already sounds as though you have been.”
Thanks – I’ve enjoyed it. I’ve also run out of trades, so appreciate your letting me off the hook!
No problem at all. Have a wonderful night JO’B. It was fun!

Barb – Please forgive me for almost asking if you crawled all the way out of your igloo to be mean to me. Forgive me. So, sunny skies and warm breezes there, eh? Oh, Canada! So happy for you. (No, really.)
lolol. stepped out of igloo this afternoon to see if iphone reception would be better; it was, so I huddled in my parka and toque and sat in my “ice chair” outside.
Too bad you gave that Canadian scarf away at the Irish pub in Boston, eh?
more where it came from!
I just like to remind you of that! lol

So, I slipped and took a nasty spill yesterday. My bum and lower back are just sore as all get out. Luckily, the missus is cooking tonight: pork in tomatillo sauce. Yum.
My wife wiped out in the garage last week and landed with her bum on a barbell weight. She is just now sitting right. I hope that your recovery is a speedy one.
I have been looking up chili verde recipes lately. The place down the street serves a pork chili verde that is just fantastic! I need to be able to make it.
I’m not sure where she found this recipe. I just finished pureeing the tomatillos and onions and garlic and serranos. Spicy!
Dear LL, take extra good care of yourself. yes, you’ll do that, right? excellent. xoxoxox
That’s sounds like pretty good start to me!
Experimenting with dinner:
We breaded some of those really thin pork chops with panko and italian bread crumbs and then fried them crispy in a pan. While that was happening we also cooked some angel’s hair pasta. After each chop was done, I put some marinara sauce on it followed by a couple of thin slices of chorizo topped with two half slices of smoked provolone cheese. Next we laid down a bed of pasta in a casserole dish, placed the chops on top and put it all in the oven to melt the cheese. We’ll see how it turns out.
Not a bad mutation of chix parm if I do say so myself. The chorizo (Boar’s head brand), really complimented both the smoked provolone and the marinara.
As an East Coaster I have had dinner already. Yet you and LL are making me hungry enough to have another 5-course dinner. Carry on!
We’re going with an Arroz con Pollo on tuesday night. I haven’t decided what to make tomorrow. The kids have swim classes at 5:00. It’s not the greatest time for it, but it’s when we could get them in. My work week starts on Wednesday this week, so I am hoping for enough Arozz con Pollo leftovers to pack lunches for a couple of days.

Obama’s (photoshopped) reaction to numbnutz.
LOL! It’s funny but she DOES have a point when you think about it. I mean, everyone calls him “Obama.” Supporters and haters alike, young or old, black/white/rich/poor, gaystraight, sane, mentally ill, human, beast, insect and fish – they all know him by “Obama.”
So it’s almost as if he doesn’t have a first or last name – he’s just “OBAMA” and that’s it.
She doesn’t have a point as far as I am concern. I don’t like it when they call him Obama, it isn’t showing respect as for as I am concern. It should be President Obama. I don’t call him Barack, because he is the President of the United States and he should be call President Barack Obama or President Obama. Some of the haters call him Barry. Was Ms. Bitch trying to be funny? I guess I didn’t get it.
Rand Paul attacks Hillary because of Bill’s infidelity – where was Rand Paul when Mark Sandford was elected to congress in South Carolina
They talk with forked tongues – every last one of them
If Hillary is the democratic nominee, the republicans will be so ugly it will be hard to watch. The republican party has become so ugly, so nasty; they’re doing so much damage to the american psyche. They have NOTHING, nothing positive to offer. It’s all about fear and gratuitous hate.
I just can’t handle that they “forgive” every last thing ANY republican does – but a democrat – whole different story. They have completely run out of ideas for attacking the President – so they now turn on other democrats while blaming the AG for being so mean in investigating corrupt GOP Governors – and there are a few more of them who should be evaluating their options.

Have LOVED Pink for a decade – I don’t know how but she keeps getting better. Her only mistake is she didn’t swing over and bop the dancing dumb belle Taylor Swift.
Pink is a BEAST whenever she performs. She’s so freaking talented.
Taylor Swift is annoying. Always trying to hog the camera at every award show. Her faux humble crap is ugh. Twitter is not impressed with her.
Totally agree. I missed Kendrick Lamar but now saw the CBS video (he IS AMAZING!!!!) and of course they keep cutting to Swift “dancing”. Ugghh, it really ruins the vibe. They’re going to have to cut her out of it.
what was wrong with Taylor dancing? I thought it was appropriate. She liked the music, so she danced.
and why is she considered dumb? She seems intelligent enough to me.
Seattle is very proud of Macklemore & Lewis!
And it made my granddaughter happy when they won!
Holy sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! Kendrick Lamar just showed the Grammys who a real rapper is and it is NOT Macklemore.
This dude just tore the roof off that mutha!!!! His collaboration with Imagine Dragons had the entire room stunned.
When Jay-Z is on his feet for you? You came correct.

This Tuesday night, President Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union Address. I will be honored to sit with my colleagues to listen to the President’s ideas to grow our economy and to improve our nation and our communities.
After watching the President, I hope you will join me for a Telephone Town Hall Tuesday evening at 8:00 PM.
It will give you an opportunity to give me your feedback not just on what the President said, but your priorities for Congress in 2014.
All you need is a telephone number. Please sign up by clicking here.
And I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for the great cartoons, lovelyplains. I’ve enjoyed reading all of your comments. I wanted to share a tweet I just saw. I wasn’t aware of this. In May, India declared dolphins non-human persons. Dolphins are amazing in many ways. I’m so thrilled by this. The news is usually focused on things that make people feel frightened or angry and as I look around there is an incredible amount of good every day. President Obama and his administration do so much I find it overwhelming. I can’t keep up with all of it, but I’m reassured knowing they are there working with good will and energy for all of us and the earth.
