House Dems announce they'll file discharge petition to pass minimum wage increase— Mike Memoli (@mikememoli) February 13, 2014
Hey Meta and everyone. Meta how does this work?
If they get 218 (or more) signatures they can force Boehner to bring it to a vote, COS.
Congrats @NancyPelosi re: Discharge petition for minimum wage increase. Please do same for the Senate #ImmigrationReform bill. cc @VP @OFA— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 13, 2014
Send the House Dems and Leader Pelosi much encouragement and congratulations – and, if your CD is “represented” by a GOPer, call’um and press them to sign the petition and inform them you will be holding them accountable if they don’t.
YES WE MUST
Thanks Bobfr. Wow, I hope Nancy can get the votes.
So do I, COS. For sure, this is a great way for Leader Pelosi and the House DEMS to turn up the heat on the GOPers. I think we are getting a little glimpse of what it’s gonna be like come the week after Labor Day – right up to election day
Take ‘em to the woodshed, SFL Pelosi!
“A discharge petition is a means of bringing a bill out of committee and to the floor for consideration without a report from the committee and usually without cooperation of the leadership. Discharge petitions are most often associated with the U.S. House of Representatives, though many state legislatures have similar procedures. They are used when the chair of a committee refuses to place a bill or resolution on the Committee’s agenda; by never reporting a bill, the matter will never leave the committee, and the full House will not be able to consider it. A successful petition “discharges” the committee from further consideration of a bill or resolution and brings it directly to the floor. The discharge petition, and the threat of one, gives more power to individual members of the House and usurps a small amount of power from the leadership and committee chairs. The modern discharge petition requires the signature of an absolute majority of House members (218 members). Only twice has it been used successfully on major legislation in recent history.”
THANKS. guys, for responding to the questions. I got spaced out making chocolate cakes.
Did someone say chocolate cakes?? I ♥ chocolate cakes.
Yes, little warm ones with caramel oozing out. LOLz.
Pics & recipe, pls…
Thank you, meta.

Dem leaders say minimum wage not the only issue they'd file discharge petition on. Min wage bill ready to go – immigration could still come— Mike Memoli (@mikememoli) February 13, 2014
… encouraging, and a great way for Dems to put the dangerously obstructive GOPers in the spotlight during an election year.

“Let’s be honest: this is the best result on this quiz. Who wouldn’t want to move to New York? Chumps, that’s who. A buncha chumps. You can act a bit crazy at times but, then again, who isn’t a little crazy from time to time? You’re spontaneous, candid, and the most exciting person in any room. I want to hang out with you. Keep it up.”

Too right I do!! Some of the comments from the Aussies were hysterical, and quite true!
It seems I should never move to Australia! probably because I hate vegemite and spiders
I got Hawaii…….when do I leave ?
I got Michigan.
I must admit, there were current cultural references that I knew nothing about. I’m old.
I got Virginia…. um…no.
No, I refuse to allow it! Seattle refuses to allow it, we need bobfr right here. Right now! ♥
Don’t worry, MP, I’ve had my 12 years of living in NY and am staying put, here!

Live free or DIE HARD. You’re a regular John McClane. You’re a problem solver, someone who is ready to handle whatever situation comes their way. No job is too big. You’re a motivated individual and someone who isn’t afraid to take on projects others are too nervous to take on. YIPEE KI YAY!
I got Vermont
I landed in MO. Woe is me.
That was fun but it put me in Texas and I hate Texas!!!!! I am from Kansas and Montana, Texas I have no desire ever to go to are even get close to.
I got Wisconsin…no way Jose:-) I ♥ CA!!!!!!
I got Washington state. I’m absolutely positive that I belong in Hawaii!!!!
I got New York….I am a third generation California and have never (although I plan to go) been to NY. I don’t like congested cities that’s why I live outside of Los Angeles but a short drive into downtown. I want to retire in Oregon or WA state.
I got Michigan! Didn’t know I was so easy going.

Two years ago, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor to deride President Barack Obama for a speech that called for developing biofuel from algae — dismissing it as nothing more than a “pipe dream.”
“I think the American people realize that a president who’s out there talking about algae when they’re having to choose between whether to buy groceries or to fill up the tank is the one who’s out of touch,” McConnell thundered.
But a few years earlier, McConnell himself worked to obtain a $30 million grant for a company that wanted to build a plant in Springfield, Ky., to turn algae, switchgrass, corn cobs and other such materials into ethanol — a plant that ultimately was never built and a grant that was never spent.
And each time McConnell interceded on behalf of the Nicholasville-based company Alltech or the federal government took action to help, its founder and president wrote a check to McConnell’s campaign or the Republican Party of Kentucky.

They Didn’t Even Put Up a Fight: How the GOP Came to Fear Obama
@PressSec This is the type of journalist who should be sitting in the front row during your PCs thepeoplesview.net/2014/02/they-d… cc @thepeoplesview— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 13, 2014
Bob, I just read this article and the comments and learned something I couldn’t haave put into words myself.
Reagan was transformational and POTUS’ plan all along was to transform us back to what we were before Reagan.
My take is that in1981—-The Air traffic Controllers strike that Reagan broke was the the beginning of the end for the middle class.
By the time the second term is completed America will have recovered from Reagan, Bush and Clinton. This is what Spandan was saying, isn’t it?
Vicki, yes, Spandan’s comments (not the essay itself) is clear re: the fundamental transformational nature of Pres Reagan and President Obama’s recognition of it and masterful transformational enlightenment – establishing the essential roll of government in protecting and expanding the ‘public good’ – for ALL the people, not a few.
“And isn’t that what the bottom-line difference is between conservatives and liberals on the role of government? Reagan was transofrmative for conservatives, and Obama for us, not just by turning back the tides of Reaganism but by actually re-asserting the essential nature of the people’s government in people’s lives.”
Those of us alive and aware of the implications of Reagan’s attack on the Air Traffic Controllers understood that he was hell bent on enabling the wealthy at the expense of most Americans.
#TrustBarack …. or Get ROLLED (or swatted )
So glad many other people are realizing these facts about Reagan. We knew at the time how dangerous for the country Reagan’s action was re: air traffic controllers. This was his opening foray, and yes we are still paying for him.
The comments after that article were great, and expressed what my husband and I have discussed many times. People just don’t LISTEN to PBO…….they didn’t wait to hear everything he said in that Ralston interview about Reagan as transformative…..they jumped and thought he was going to do what Reagan did. I just get angry with people because they don’t listen to him, but make up their minds before he speaks and react stupidly.
I loved what someone said about the difference between Clinton and Obama: he wanted to be president, to be president. Obama had a plan and vision of where the country needed to go and knew that only by becoming president could he accomplish what he knew had to happen to save our country. Thank you PBO for making the personal sacrifices to do this.
As my husband says simply: He’s a great man. I trust him.
Remember in the Primary in 2008 when Hillary criticized Obama was saying Reagan was a great President? Just like you said they did not listen to what he was saying, but simply seized on words they could exploit against him. I do not believe a lot of politicians have their own beliefs. I think they measure the public response and go that way while PBO says what he believes and tries to persuade the public to go his direction. Which is real leadership? Our man, of course. Hillary plays the political game PBO says what he believes regardless of the politics.

Who is behind the MSNBC continual topic of Gov Christie? No other media – other than local NJ media is continuing this attack. Is it ratings driven? or is someone? wanting to make sure Christie will never run for President?
Don’t knock it 99ts. It’s news and most won’t cover it. These are facts being revealed while others are offering opinions about the ACA and the murder trial in FL.
I’m not knocking it yardarm – best thing since sliced bread – but I wonder as to someone’s?? motives – sure isn’t because the owner of MSNBC is a dem supporter.
To me MSNBC is right wing in the morning and morphs to the left as the day progresses. I guess that’s their interpretation of fair and balanced.
Dr. Maddow has been on this case for months now. Just like she was on Bob Transvaginal probe McDonnell. When she diligently starts to focus on a case as she did with Voting, Reproductive rights, Oil and chemical spills, LGTBQ rights, etc she stays on it Come What May. All the other MSNBC Hosts including Steve Kornacki all came to the Christie story Late.
MSNBC in the evening is a lot tolerable than their other shows……….I personally can’t stand Chris Hayes……To me, he is a Weekend Presenter. At 8pm ET…..a Keith Olbermann wannabe, it is Not working.
I’m just amazed that they are all staying with it – despite MJ is protesting about it – and supporting Gov Christie – it still gets discussed – and for Christie at the minute – any publicity is bad publicity.
I agree re Chris Hayes – only time I have been able to watch him is during the Christie segments – which makes me think they must be good for ratings.
I don’t see any daytime shows on MSNBC (other than MJ if I choose to watch) – my sleep time
Ye, 99ts, the Ratings have also been great for them mostly in the last 2 weeks.
Yep….I meant to type.
JoeScar has No control of what they do or cover…..Only his Mourning Joke that he has 1001% domination and Control. He can mock and complain, but so long as the other Hosts focus on Facts…….Phil Griffins has nothing on their content.
