    Reader’s advisory from your friendly librarian.

    Thanks to following a link on George Takei’s twitter, I discovered Vocatic.com. Pretty interesting news site.

    “Senate Delays Hurting Our National Security

    As the President’s National Security Advisor, I am focused every day on keeping our country secure and our citizens – at home and abroad – safe. But these goals are hindered and our stature abroad is weakened when we are not fielding a full team. That’s why I urge the Senate to let the President’s qualified ambassadorial nominees get to work on behalf of the American people.

    Right now, 48 nominees for ambassador are pending and 26 are on the Executive Calendar and eligible for confirmation by the full Senate – 16 of whom are career Foreign Service Officers. Together, all ambassadorial nominees have been waiting an average of 161 days, while those on the Executive Calendar have been waiting an average of 262 days. This is simply too long.

    These crucial posts are vacant and American interests are therefore underrepresented. The longer we wait to fill these roles the harder it becomes to maintain our effective American diplomacy.

    Consider:

    Kuwait borders Iraq and is a vital strategic partner that requires the highest level engagement given the current situation. Yet our post there remains without an ambassador. Now more than ever, it is crucial that our ambassador to the State of Kuwait is confirmed.
    In Africa, a quarter of our ambassadors are awaiting Senate confirmation. And in combating regional instability and serious challenges such as Boko Haram, key partners including Niger, Cameroon, and Mauritania – as well as our delegation to the African Union – need ambassadors in place now. And with the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit planned for later this summer, it’s crucial that we display our commitment to partnering with leaders from across the continent for the good of Africa and the United States.
    ASEAN will play a crucial role in the East Asia Summit in November 2014, which the President will attend. Substantively and organizationally, we need an ambassador in place to lay the groundwork for a successful Summit. We need a leading voice in our seat at the ASEAN table as tensions in the region have escalated surrounding China’s actions in the South China Sea.

    These are only a few of many reasons it is critical to our national security that America fields a full team in our global engagement. The qualified individuals nominated to serve our country need to be confirmed without delay and allowed to do their important work leading our complex and vital interagency teams that are working to protect American interests around the world.

    While there is a potential path to confirmation without bipartisan support, our nation’s security is stronger when we act together, and so I call on all members of the Senate to agree to confirm these nominees today so we can get them in place now.”

    Urge everyone to RT it!!!

    Does Dick Cheney have a wife? Can’t say the thought had ever crossed my mind before. Plus, I have to admit that I generally cringe at the thought of the women who marry, and stay married to, unconscionable men.

      That’s too much, Pf. Two of the biggest hypocrites on the planet–Boehner & McConnell–pretending they care about MLK. The angels are weeping.

    Watching a replay of the Suarez bite. What I love is that after he bit Chiellini, Chiellini threw an elbow at Suarez, which seems to connected, and the fucking guttersnipe fell down clutching his face. But forgive me if I’m not sanguine that Sepp Blatter’s Fifa will ban Suarez.

      See, I’m not for violence, however, were the gangs shipped out all of the children AND folks of goodwill, then took up covered positions along the march route ala “Rosewood,” I wouldn’t be mad…

      Wanna see gun control with the full support of half of the NRA’s redneck membership? Have about a million black people get open carry permits and do exactly the same thing as the Billyjo Jimbobs are doing. Show up at Target or the grocery store or whatever inappropriate place to pack heat that they feel like going. Gun control laws will pass faster than a prune washed down with KY jelly.

        In fact it has happened…aka…the Black Panther Party!

          Don’t know how I could have missed that living here Phoenix. I know all three of the black guys in this valley and neither of them packs heat when we hang out.

        You are spot-on! It happened right here in California (CA), in 1966, when the Black Panther Party For Self-Defense insisted on exercising their “2nd Amendment Rights.” The CA legislature quickly passed a law banning the carrying of guns within city limits. The right wing saint, Ronald Reagan, who was the governor of California, quickly signed the bill thus making it the law in CA.

      As I often explain to folk, the NSA doesn’t give a #u*k about you unless you’re trying to kill Americans. The corporate dudes, on the other hand, are exploiting YOU every way they can and laughing all the way to the bank as you whine about the NSA.

    Note:

    Mississippi is a Haley Barbour State. If McDaniels wins, the former RNC and Gov of MS has lost his touch in MS.

      Cochran is winning – thanks to a bunch of Black Dem voters.

        I have just heard that Cochran is at 50% plus and the teabagger is at 49%

        I know that some are questioning why help Cochran win. This nation has had enough of Cruz, Rand Paul and the UT younger and Junior senator. This guy is just bat poop. Should Cochran win, then come Nov 2014, Dems must find a way to fight harder for the senate seat.
