Be afraid. Be VERY afraid!

Give ‘em hell PBO. They deserve it!
Congrats on 1st MP!! Appears Proud was mere seconds away from the gold :)
Before midnight tonight I'm sending these groups some $: OFA, DNC, DCCC, DSCC, Emily's List, AFL-CIO, SEIU. What r u gonna do?— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) July 01, 2014
@Dudette9t9 … @VoteRiders and League of Women Voters too!— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) July 01, 2014
hey Dudette My husband gave to DCCC, i gave to Planned Parenthood, OFA, Allison, Grimes, Shaheen, and wendy davis…..small amount but some were matched. I had trouble figuring out whether I should just can the full amount to onme person or spread it around. What do others do? Thanks
I always spread mine around otter44. Great job donating tonight!!!!
I spread around too, like to feel like supporting many, even if token amounts. The Act Blue counter is going berserk trying to keek up with donations.. All that helped defeat McDaniel now come out and defeat Cochran. Give him some karma.
I donated too to OFA and the DCCC.
Way to go Betsy!
Well done, otter44! I like to spread mine around a little, but the main thing is to put your money where your heart is. :-)
Posted this on another thread, and it’s almost too late to matter for this quarter, but Sam Wang (statistician from Princeton) suggests the following top races: Begich in Alaska, Lundergan-Grimes in Kentucky, Braley in Iowa, Udall in Colorado, Nunn in Georgia, and Landrieu in Louisiana. Perhaps also Pryor in Arkansas. These are all Democrats in tight races.
Gave some to Michelle Nunn after the primary. Happy to do it again. We need to turn that seat BLUE!
Let’s hit the rest of them with a money bomb in the next quarter for sure, Judith. Every little bit helps!
I have had a very small, monthly donation to DCCC since 2012. Tonight I added a bigger one and also donated to Garry Peters for Senate. I wish I could do more, but that’s it for now.

VP Biden, what a wonderful, sincere, strong human to have beside our President. Thank you, Mr. Biden, bless you!
I second that! The Pres knows how to pick them.
Totally agree, MP! Love him.
@VP – Thank you, sir, for standing with our President, as we all stand with both of you! #DemocraticValues— (@JOBoomr) July 01, 2014
Thank YOU, JO’B, for sending this along to VPB. He ain’t just another pretty face, he is a mover and a shaker! So centered and grounded, at peace with himself and the life he has dedicated to this country. Blessed are we to have him with us.
That made me smile! We are, indeed!
Interfaith Alliance Says the Supreme Court Made a Grave Error in Hobby Lobby Decision
“The Supreme Court made a grave error today. The balance between religious freedom and other compelling interests has always been tenuous, but we may very well remember today’s decision as the moment that balance was radically recalibrated. Not only has the Court, for the first time in history, expanded the definition of religious freedom to include for-profit corporate entities, it has determined that the free exercise of those employers outweighs that of their employees. The First Amendment is at its best when it is used to protect the rights of minorities from the whims of the powerful. Today’s decision, which gives the powerful the right to force their religious beliefs on those around them, is a far cry from the best traditions of religious freedom.”
(h/t The Rachel Maddow Show)
He's been the absolute best President in my lifetime. http://t.co/dJ7eEcLAMb— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) July 01, 2014
Yes Indeed, Donna! Great tweet and thanks for your unflinching support of this good man who has worked so hard, against incredible odds, to move this country forward.
A girl just cannot take an hour off from this venue of activity without feeling totally lost on her return! Ever occur to you guys to turn down the activity volume when I step away? No? Oh!
I hear ya’, VC! But let me be one of the first to wish us Canadians a very happy and pleasant Canada Day tomorrow! Good to start it off by sending Mercury on its direct way!! Things will ease up a bit in the next few days.. (I continue to agree with MadameSoph that this couldn’t have been better time to hand down such a poor decision from the Highest Court Bench, SCOTUS. Whole country is in an uproar, rightfully so!)
Thank you kindly, and a happy Canada Day to you too!
I didn’t think we’d start building momentum towards November already, but I guess Republicans have decided to get a head start by lighting bush fires wherever they pass. They have got to be the most consistently clueless politicians I have ever come across. There are no signs I see that suggest these (mostly) guys have learnt anything in the past 6-7 years!
So I will admit i only had about 15 minutes at work to look on the Internet today over the heinous decision from the High Court. But I was very puzzled by the tweets from Scotus blog. Usually it’s been fairly professional attorney- like tweets in the past. But today it seemed to be mostly snark which wasn’t what I was looking for from them – as I can find that anywhere. What am I missing on this?
Maybe because of this:
So to recap. A lot of people trolled SCOTUSblog today thinking it was an official SCOTUS Twitter account.— Gus (@Gus_802) July 01, 2014
Yeah but it was there comments back to the confused which was bizarre. I always liked their take on things and today they were just weird. Oh well. Thanks LL – hope all is well in sunny Cali!
Aghhh. Their not there! Must proof before posting!

Eventually, this country needs to move away from employer-based health insurance and allow universal access to the ACA exchanges. Instead of jerking employees around with inadequate health care plans, corporations would have to pay higher taxes for a national system that works for everyone. Would love to see some states going this route as a step to a future single payer system. Employers are always going to find ways to screw over lower paid employees and health insurance has to be seen as a bedrock right, no matter who you work for. Democratic Congresses, combined with a Democratic president and a change in just one Supreme Court judge can make this happen. Employer-based health insurance is a relic of another age.
The Hobby Lobby Case Shows Why Private Companies Shouldn’t Provide Insurance. The Government Should.

BTW, if you give to DCCC through ActBlue on a monthly basis, your contributions are triple matched. Jus’ sayin’.
I just gave the DCCC through ActBlue the other day. I also gave money tonight to OFA, beside from my monthly contribution. They are having a contest. The winner will get to attend the President’s Birthday Party Event in Chicago on August 4th.

Good. Then only men can work there. Of course, they’ll have to increase the salaries, in that case.
In the oven right now: burgers and fries. The house smells delicious.
This has got to be my worst day for staying with the group! Here I come right before they charge off again, I don`t doubt. /pouting/
Cheer up old friend, you are actually among the many who have found this to be true today! All day! :) ;)
‘Old’ friend? I think you’ve got the wrong number. *I* am at young as I feel, and right now that’s ….ah… er, okay.
Shoutout: ‘Lo, Layla, I haven’t seen you all day! In the midst of the SCOTUS crazy, we have had lots of good news today. Maybe you’ve been lurking.
Have been donating all weekend, but made more tonight, including Planned Parenthood and others. I wish I had millions of dollars to donate.
