Chips, everyone, you won’t want to miss the video in this tweet ….
Thank you Sec @JohnKerry for sending #TzarVlad a clear rebuke to his lawless aggression on #Ukraine c-span.org/video/?319014-… cc @Yastenyuk_AP— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) April 24, 2014
Thanks for the video link Bob. Watched all of it. I will say about Sec Kerry what I said about Caroline Kennedy: he was born for this job. I am so thrilled for him to be on the world stage so positively. President Obama has done such a masterful job of appointing gifted people for positions and just trusting them to perform brilliantly.
Totally agree with you, Carolyn!!
Thank you for all you did (and continue to do), Tally, to help folk have access to affordable health care!!!
Bob, I love the way Kerry is so unsparing in his words. There isn’t any wiggle room here. He knows Russia’s number, he’s calling out the deceit and he says the world knows it and will act.
What pearly whites you have:)
:D :D :D Merci!
Hey Lovely Tally…..Congrats on being first and Happy Thursday
Hey girl! Thanks!
Hey Bardgal! Checking in on The Bard’s birthday! Lovely to see ya! :-)
Who’s the the smartest girl???? YOU ARE!!!! (except it was yesterday :D ) Still. CLOSE ENOUGH!!!
*Trivia – did you know he died on his birthday?
Happy Belated Birthday, TallyBard!
Next month – so you’re not late. :D
oh – and the 23rd is SHAKESPEARE’S birthday!
Argh, thought it was the 24th, but close will do. :-)
Hello people !!
Yo, y’all! Tally, lead the way!
Three years ago, Rick Scott rejected clean & fast transportation in Florida by stopping high-speed rail. #tbt #pfla http://t.co/MDHzLY0pCx— FL Democratic Party (@FlaDems) April 24, 2014
Hate seeing that “skinhead’s” head (no offense to nice normal bald men).
Hi Tally – are you breathing easier now that CA did such a great job enrolling people? We’re still slogging away here in OR. Congratulations on first!
Judith I saw that the Feds might take over the Oregon exchange. It was a little blurb and I dont remember where I saw it. Have you heard anything?
I saw that too…
Bill R. would be another good Oregonian to ask.
He’s very, very active in getting people signed up for medical insurance.
He mentioned recently that the Oregon deadline was later than the April 15th deadline for everyone else. Not sure why this would be so.
Oregon intends to surrender its dysfunctional Obamacare exchange to the Obama administration, which is making plans to take over the state’s insurance marketplace, sources familiar with the matter confirmed.
The state-based exchange, Cover Oregon, was such a disaster that — despite spending millions of dollars trying to make it work — not a single resident was able to sign up online during the first open-enrollment period from Oct. 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. Instead, thousands signed up by paper or phone.
On Thursday, Oregon’s top information-technology official recommended to a 16-member advisory board that the state relinquish its broken insurance exchange, according to The Oregonian. The Obama administration expects the full exchange panel to approve the recommendation.
Yes – that’s pretty much it. It’s been tremendously frustrating, but we ARE getting people signed up. The navigators can use the buggy website without problems to walk people through the process. It was so bad, our enrollment deadline was extended to April 30th. We still have several enrollment fairs around the state which my team has been publicizing. The media and the GOP will try to take down Senator Merkley and Governor Kitzhaber, but I doubt they will succeed. We absolutely have to GOTV!
As Sec Kerry noted, Putin’s propaganda machine is no match for the millions committed to spreading the truth ….
“We would like to note the following in connection with the statement by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu about the start of military exercises by Russian troops near the state border with Ukraine:
We have not observed a noticeable increase in the deployment of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border. According to our data, Russian battalion tactical groups of combined arms formations from the Southern and Western Military Districts, mentioned by the Russian Defense Minister, were already established a few days ago (as reported earlier by the IR group).
There continue to be up to 50,000 Russian soldiers deployed in the 150 km [93 mile] zone from the state border in Russia.
Therefore, it is difficult to talk about the current concentration of Russian troops at the border as Russia’s response to the ATO conducted in eastern Ukraine. This group of Russian troops was deployed at the border prior to these events.”
I wonder if people like this Russian Defense minister actually believe they have any credibility left at all or if they’re nudging each other about the joke they think they’re pulling on the west.
Economic warfare is not a joke ….
“Russia scrapped bond sales for the seventh time in eight weeks as investors demanded higher yields after the U.S. said the country wasn’t taking steps to de-escalate the crisis in Ukraine.
The Finance Ministry canceled the sale of as much as 10 billion rubles ($280 million) of nine-year ruble securities and the same amount of five-year notes because there were no bids at acceptable prices, according to a statement on its website.”
Hey Chips! Did ya know today is Enda Kenny’s birthday!
Also Barbra Streisand, 1942.
Yep. And Shirley MacLaine. And Djimon Honsou (squeee!). And Richard Donner. And Derek Luke. And Cedric the Entertainer. :-)

Love when the President travels. He looks so elegant and gracious.
Looks that way when he’s home, too. :)
He does indeed but when he is a way he is not surrounded by GOP and MSM crap dusters but folks who admire and appreciate him. His travels are reported with honesty and admiration by the press in those countries. If it wasn’t for TOD what would we see? Shudder to think.
Oh, I know what you meant and agree with you, I was just reveling in all of it!

True Confession: I have a brother, (no names now), who seems to seriously want Jesse Ventura to run for the WH in 2016. I have to say, I really don’t know how to respond to this. Hope his meds aren’t slipping.
Ol’ Jesse had a big following, around the time he was a governor. Think he does a conspiracy/paranoia show now – or at least he did many years ago when I last thought of him.
Sorry about your brother – maybe he’s trying to get a rise out of you, MP!
Thanks – if so, it’s working! ;( I am finding conversation difficult… As in, I’m speechless! ;)
I hope he knows that JV due to some heavy criticisms from the press, left his gubernatorial office early. It was a 4yr one term gig and he bolted when the criticism got to him.
How Dmitry Tymchuk Broke the Russian Blogosphere
“Dmitry Tymchuk is, in fact, a real person. His Facebook posts attract so many shares and so few comments because the ability to comment on his posts is restricted to his friends. (He has almost 80 thousand followers, but just 5 thousand friends.) Since Sannikov’s article was published, Tymchuk has appeared in person for several interviews and conferences. When he granted an interview to Ukraine’s premier Internet television station, Hromadske.TV, the host even poked Tymchuk in the arm, to confirm for viewers that he isn’t an Internet phantom invented by NATO.
Tymchuk has been publishing pro-Ukrainian, anti-Russian memos and opinion pieces for nearly six years. In August 2008, when Russia was at war with Georgia, he wrote that Ukraine should study the conflict, in anticipation of facing future Russia aggression. In December 2008, when Ukraine finally withdrew the last of its armed contingent from the multinational force deployed to Iraq, Tymchuk wrote that Ukraine had gained military experience that would be valuable in future conflicts closer to home.
In other words, Tymchuk is your standard patriotic blogger. Certainly more energetic and better informed than the average Internet user, Tymchuk has scribbled away on obscure websites for nearly six years, consistently thrashing what he perceives to be Ukraine’s aggressive neighbor to the east. After annexing roughly four percent of Ukraine’s population, and threatening to “liberate” still more, Russia has made Tymchuk a star of Ukraine’s political scene.
Rather than acknowledge Moscow’s role in promoting Tymchuk, some Russian bloggers prefer to blame NATO. Life, after all, is simpler with your head in the sand.”
Is Dmitry Tymchuk really real?
And for god's sake get it right: Voices of Ukraine translates his writings into… fb.me/3nr7UUDYV— (@MaidanOnline) April 24, 2014
Well, I must say Tymchuk is an excellent writer, even in translation, and I enjoy reading his daily reports.
This Kansas and Bundy @%&# today has me *!^# & (prettyfoot I’m with you). I saw this comment (from a Jerry Rosen) over on Pierce’s’s blog, and couldn’t resist sharing it here. I’m all in…
“Time to give these s***heads their own country. Past time, in effect. Give them the southern tier, take out the army bases, the federal facilities like the Space Center. Then build a real wall.
Stop subsidizing them. We develop real alternative energy and let their f–ing oil stay in the ground (good side effect: put Putin back in the vodka bottle). Give them all the guns they want and let them proceed to kill each other. Forget vaccinating their kids or regulating nutrition in their schools, so they can grow up to be cholesterol- choked arthritics and early diabetics, and die miserable deaths from smoking. Let their “government” degenerate into Somalia or South Sudan; let them wave their (unread Bibles), pig out on FoxNews as they burn their crosses, drink coal ash with their water, and breath CO and sulfur dioxide to their mean and hateful heart’s content. Then the rest of the country can join the 21st century and they can go back to the 16th (or farther to the 14th if they want).”
This is not a good idea.

re: South Korea:
A couple of days ago I wondered why South Korea wasn’t pulling out all the stops for our President’s visit, and now have seen a couple of different answers.
From Korean news:
South Korea had planned a dinner w/ 100-200 Korean & US business leaders, but Obama's itinerary did not permit it.
english.chosun.com/site/data/html…— Arapaho415 (@arapaho415) April 24, 2014
South Korean diplomats are characterizing it as a visit by an old friend — a pointed contrast to Mr. Obama’s more formal two-day stop in Japan, which includes an elaborate welcoming ceremony at the Imperial Palace, an audience with Emperor Akihito and a state dinner.
Saw Dudette’s question on the previous thread which asked whether anyone else had seen a clip of President Obama with South Korean President Park Geun-hye (aired over television airwaves?).
I searched on Google for President Obama in South Korea, and the top results were about how the ferry disaster may overshadow our President’s visit there.
Our MSM jumps on the RWNJ bandwagon that “it’s all Obama’s fault.”
Geez, he can’t win for losing.
:-) I can’t resist sharing this either, from Andy Borowitz’s satirical news column at The New Yorker. Sure, it’s sarcasm, but it also happens to be the truth…
REPUBLICANS BLAST NEVADA RANCHER FOR FAILING TO USE COMMONLY ACCEPTED RACIAL CODE WORDS
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) — Republican politicians blasted the Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy on Thursday for making flagrantly racist remarks instead of employing the subtler racial code words the G.O.P. has been using for decades.
“We Republicans have worked long and hard to develop insidious racial code words like ‘entitlement society’ and ‘personal responsibility,’ ” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). “There is no excuse for offensive racist comments like the ones Cliven Bundy made when there are so many subtler ways of making the exact same point.”
Fox News also blasted the rancher, saying in a statement, “Cliven Bundy’s outrageous racist remarks undermine decades of progress in our effort to come up with cleverer ways of saying the same thing.”

Even when I don’t have time to comment, I always love reading the posts and seeing all the fantastic pictures. Thanks again and a very happy 8 month birthday to Danny. Don’t worry, he will settle down. My 14 year old sweetheart of a lab ate a palm pilot, camera, a coffee table, and my brand new beautiful boots (my one splurge purchase from a trip to Australia!) all because I forgot to latch his crate when I left the house for 3 hours to go to a pre-school sing along. He grew up and has been the best friend ever. So if you can slow him down for a second, please give him a skritch from me!
“My 14 year old sweetheart of a lab ate a palm pilot, camera, a coffee table, and my brand new beautiful boots”

Thank you Arapaho415!!
I thought it was a heartwarming story. Danny’s still a rambunctious youth, so accidents (i.e., eating everything in sight) will happen.

The Bundy doesn’t believe in the Fed Gov’t. I would have done as she did. Our Reps are to be our closest link to the Fed Gov’t.
The person interviewed about Bundy’s racist remarks is the elected official in Bundy’s district. Seemed appropriate to me.
Everyone needs to see this in-depth and revealing segment. Highly recommended. It should be required viewing for all reporters and media outlets.
Thank you so much for posting links to the good segments on MSNBC.
Rachel’s in-depth investigation into the white supremacists who literally pal around with each other (e.g., Kansas shooter and Spokane bomb-planter) was amazing. The first segment lasted a full 30 minutes without interruption.
This is why I commend Rachel’s staff. She’s got the best in the news business, and aside from 60 Minutes is about the only investigative journalism on television — and her staff does this on a daily basis, not on a 22-episode season (like 60 Minutes).

Air Force One is now departing Tokyo. We are aboard. So is POTUS. Next stop: Osan Air Base near Seoul, South Korea.— (@devindwyer) April 25, 2014
Safe Journey POTUS.
G’Nite TOD <3 Always ;)
“So is POTUS”? Uh, brilliant. It’s his plane! (Even their humor is trite.) :)
A real eye catcher, that clever line, eh? Another dunce who has no business being around this caliber of President. Is it supposed to be funny, or does he not know it’s only AF1 because of PBO?
I think it’s their version of “humor.” Ugh.
It’s only Air Force One when the President is on board… This tweet really reveals the media’s own inflated sense of self-importance… And ignorance.
@TheToast2013 Now that's a whole lotta roughage in one sitting… ROTFL..— (@aspirational12) April 25, 2014
