      100% true.

      It’s also a cop-out for some who claim that’s the reason they are Libertarian or Independent.

    Thank you for the President’s itinerary, Chips. Lots of history in the making …

      A pleasure Bob, what an extraordinary week ahead.

      I was just thinking the same thing as I read it Bob “Lots of history in the making …”
      Wow, this is going to be quite a week!

      It’s at time like these you really appreciate that TOD is invaluable. The MSM will black-out the trip, except when they take something out of context and use it against him. But we will be witness to the incredible history – right here on TOD. No deliberate filtering, asinine punditry, newstainer garbage, false equivalence, etc.

      We will see our President shine on the world stage as he normally does, while being looked upon with admiration/envy by the other world leaders.

      It goes to show the side they have chosen to propagate for.

      Shame on them.

      What news value is that other than to embarrass and humiliate the US and the First Lady.

    Further documenting the fact that Putin’s lies are obvious to all who seek the truth ….

    The US media wants us to believe that Russia is this super power – global giant. In their quest to diminish PBO they will elevate any individual, faction, organization, country who they perceive to be opposed to him. But thank goodness, there are people who know better and not driven by hatred of PBO!

    Part of the reason that folks such as myself and Nerdy are especially chuffed at today’s result between Chelsea and Arsenal is that we ruined Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s 1,000th game in charge of his club. In recognition of that achievement, his club management gave him… a gold-plated cannon. A small gold plated cannon. I will now let Dirty Tackle take over.

    The small gold (probably plated) cannon is better than being enrolled in a jelly of the month club (depending on how little you like jelly), but not by much. You would think that for such an achievement and for all the money he’s saved/made them over the years, Arsenal would give him an actual working cannon or a tank or maybe even a video of Jose Mourinho taking a Santi Cazorla free kick to the crotch.

    Still, it’s gold and it’s a trophy so drought over.

    A reality our President has already demonstrated he is fully cognizant and acting upon ….

    Just a reminder Chips… what’s Danny doing right this minute?

    • March 22, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      Oooooh Dudette, that is so so so spot on – he was worryingly silent last night when he was pottering about the house, found him eating a bath brush thingie.

        Did your insurance agent encourage you to take out a special puppy rider on your homeowner’s insurance policy?
        If not, fire him/her for incompetence, ‘cuz it sounds like that big fella’s gonna eat you out of house and home! :-D

        • March 22, 2014 at 3:11 pm

          He already has Dudette, I haven’t eaten since January, whenever I start preparing food he gets a knife and fork and grabs a napkin, he assumes it’s for him. And I haven’t the heart not to give it to him. Except my cheesy puffs – he will NEVER get them.

    I just can’t get over that despicable Belgium paper, and now PBO is visiting there? How in holy hell could anyone justify printing something like that?? I can’t even… Belgium, you’re now dead to me.

      You know I think it was disgusting to Kathleen. I don’t know about the people who publish the picture, and their family, but our POTUS and FLOTUS are not monkeys.

    “In a small, two-story building in Kiev, ordinary citizens work side by side with journalists, piecing together piles of shredded documents they hope will shed light on the regime of ex-president Viktor Yanukovych who is under indictment for massive corruption.

    Office workers skip lunch to glue tiny slivers of paper on colored sheets that are scanned and numbered. Students drop in after classes to help. Parents bring their kids on weekends to sort through piles of confetti found in trash bags outside a conglomerate owned by Serhiy Kurchenko, a billionaire with close ties to the ousted Ukrainian president.

    Up to 50 volunteers a day, working in shifts, have stepped forward to help Ukraine’s media make history.

    When they fled on Feb. 22, Yanukovych and his cronies attempted to dispose of tens of thousands of potentially incriminating documents by shredding or dumping them into a reservoir on the former leader’s palatial estate.

    They didn’t expect what happened next.”

      The “monkey” depiction has special historical significance and is applied to an entire population of African descended peoples. Yes, cruel depictions of heads of countries have been made – but on an individual basis. GWB’s depictions were not used to make statements about White people. And I don’t recall similar hateful descriptions being used for Laura Bush as First Lady.

      If you can give me one example when a queen/king/President (and spouse) were depicted in a derogatory manner based solely on their race/ethnicity, then I will take back everything I just said.

        No need to take back anything you said as that wasn’t the point I was making; which was that disgusting is disgusting and not grading the level of disgusting. I’m currently reading “Maria Therese, The Fate of Marie Antoinette’s Daughter” by Susan Nagel which is an amazing account of Maria Therese’s life and throughout it the cruelty she and her little brother endured when they were imprisoned (after her parents were guillotined) as children was astonishing. Caricatures of them and their parents as pigs and dogs were not uncommon which is what made me comment above.
