    Today at the Vatican. Pope Francis meets Mini-Me
    The 18 month old was handed over to the Pope and it didn’t go too well, I suppose.

      Pontifex is apparently lacking some of the magnetic charm the young find so accessible in PBO and HHDL!

    AZ was last to implement Medicare. They were last for the MLK National Holiday. They had the Wicked Immigration laws passed. Now they want to legally discriminate against the LGBTQ community?

    What about if many in AZ who obviously are not in support of all these backward behavior were to start denying services to Fundamentalists or to start asking for ID to separate the Extreme Christians, would that be Okay?

    Why would a state like AZ continue to be as bat poop as possible legislatively? I have never been to AZ and I see no reason to in the future.

    Barry Goldwater predicted this behavior. The threat to the GOP is the rise and power of the Christian Fundamentalists.

      Correct me DF if I am wrong but AZ has a lot of elderly snowbirds that decide to live permanately there. There are a bunch of old fearful old people. They’re a fraud of brown people and anyone not white. The politicians run on these fears of “those” people are out to get you. AZ is not the bible belt so I don’t think this is going to work in AZ like the south or where its more religious.

    Mornin’, Chips – Yardarm asked me to let y’all know he’ll be in super lurking mode for a few days. He has appointments, here and there, and his extended family has lost a couple of its older and younger members this week. I’m sure he knows he’s in our thoughts and prayers, while he goes ashore for a bit!

    For all you who love Pharrell (pretty much the entire world), he released a new album today called ‘G I R L’ and from the first song, it will have you moving. If you want to listen to the entire album and be ‘Happy’ then here is a free stream of the entire album.

    Let me join in the happy birthday wishes for GGail. May there be many more, but if you keep eating those cupcakes Chips bakes for you that may not happen.

    I do fully expect Brewer to veto the AZ law, mainly due to the pressure from businesses. Wrong reason!!!

      Japa – thanks for the b’day wishes. You did notice that I specifically requested cupcakes from POTUS.
      I remember the early years when she baked those cakes for me – OH MAN!!!!

    GOP’s Obsession With IRS Has Cost Taxpayers At Least $14 Million

    In response to a request by Reps. Sander Levin (D-MI) and Elijah Cummings (D-MD), top Democrats on House Ways and Means and Oversight committees, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said that 255 agency employees have spent some 97,542 hours responding to nine months of inquiries and 15 congressional hearings.

    On Wednesday — two years to the day after George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin — Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) placed a hold on President Barack Obama’s nominee for Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, over Murthy’s view that gun violence represents a significant public health threat.
