    Weed is now legal in Colorado and apparently its residents are high as hell. LOL.

    President Barack Obama visited Denver, Colorado Tuesday evening and while he was there, some strange stuff happened. For one, this guy asked him, “Want a hit, man?” and posted the video of the president laughing in response on Instagram:

      For some reason I do not like that, maybe POTUS shouldn’t have smile, but said No Thank and walk away.

      Note Senator Reid’s statement!!!

      “Congressional Democrats will unveil legislation Wednesday that would override the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case by requiring most employers to provide federally-required contraception and other health services even if they have religious objections.

      The Hobby Lobby v. Burwell decision, a 5-4 ruling by the high court last week, said that business owners with religious objections could exercise their right to not cover some kinds of contraception in employee health insurance packages. In response, Democrats vowed to make access to contraception a legislative priority for the remainder of the congressional term.

      “One thing we’re going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on Tuesday. “This Hobby Lobby decision is outrageous, and we’re going to do something about it. People are going to have to walk down here and vote, and if they vote with the five men on the Supreme Court, I think it’s — they’re going to have — be treated unfavorably come November with the elections.”

      Efforts to craft a bill were spearheaded by Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Mark Udall (D-Colo.) and Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), among others.Their proposals were merged into a bill that could come up for a vote in the Democrat-controlled Senate as early as next week, senior Senate Democratic aides said Tuesday.”

    Rep. Henry Cuellar [D] TX…is all over the media complaining that PBO is not going to the border.

    His 15 minutes of flame will be over tomorrow and no one will remember his name.

      Ahhhh……..THIS IS THE GUY!

      He has been crisscrossing the networks; all of last evening and again today. The media keeps saying that the “Dems” are telling President Obama to go to the border but this is the only guy I’ve seen.

        Hi Cindy, in one of the threads from yesterday, someone mentioned that he was part of the DLC and a huge supporter of Bill & Hillary. Unfortunately, I don’t remember who or which thread.

        As I said early CNN show the person asking POTUS if he want a hit, the male anchor said that POTUS didn’t say no, he just smile. Next time Mr. President say No Thank you and walk away.

          I hope you are kidding amk. I am 100% not in favor of him lighting up a doobie. And I hope he just remember, that’s it. You have a 16 and 13 year old who you set examples for and lighting up a doobie isn’t one of those examples you should be setting..

            • July 9, 2014 at 1:16 pm

              FLOTUS would not like that and PBO knows that. I think the president is all for de-criminalizing marijuana but not for making it fully legal. I think he’s OK with states making that choice as long as it is regulated so kids don’t get it. However, if kids can get their hands on mom andads guns they will sure get a hold their weed.

    Nick Hanauer was on c-span this morning. He kicked some serious butt. It was a pleasure to watch. He’s the entrepreneur who is schooling the RWNJ’s on how economies work. He’s plain spoken, passionate but clear-headed, and understands how to get a message across.

    Here’s the link to his article that started this whole thing:

    Why do the Republicans and the media what POTUS to go to the border so bad? I don’t get that. What would it solve? And I’m sick of all this, is the President going to meet with Governor Perry? There are problems to solve yes, and going to the border won’t solve anything. Not a dam thing.

    • 103 anniebella
      July 9, 2014 at 12:44 pm

      So now the big deal for the media is when POTUS and Governor Perry meet. I’m sure they would love to be there. Be careful what you hear.

          Hi my beautiful Layla. You must have been on the call that I received from my loving brother early this morning. He told me the exact words during our conversation. “Forget the media’s negative narrative and rely and concentrate on what PBO is doing, will be doing even as we are speaking, Sis; and for sure having his team do every directives from him that his legal team has studied, put in proper placement of his legal obligations as POTUS, and rest assure he will get it done from his level brilliant mind and from his able team. Trust him.”

          Now, I am resting my eyes from reading so much and crying a little; but my spirit and my brother’s spirit always know when to meet up for sane conversation. He has that gift about him that sustains his sis. I am grateful.

          I am grateful for all of the hard work our beautiful Chips does for each of us daily. Also to our beautiful Nerdy W., and all of the beautiful and bright minds who are contributing every moment to make this the Best Place Ever in supporting our President. Also for Chips steady and firm hand on keep this place pure and clear of the ugly persons who wish to get us from focusing on our mission. {{{Love You, Chips}}}

          {{{{Thanks, Layla for reminding us to stay focus.}}}}}HZ

        Impeachment to the racists Tea Republicans is to do what they couldn’t do 2008 and 2012, defeat and get rid of Barack Obama. As if our votes meant nothing.They hate him so they will get rid of him, even though he was elected fair and square twice..

      That Chyron saying “immigration crisis” pisses me off (sorry for the language). As I tweeted out earlier, it is not an immigration crisis, it is a humanitarian crisis. The character of our nation can well be judged on how we react to this situation.

      Once again, Von Knoller and his clueless liars in DC/NY punditry are once again distorting. POTUS’ team have been playing his campaign Theme songs every time POTUS is giving Economic Speech, Jobs’ speech, you name it since after pres Obama’s 2nd inauguration last Jan 2013.

      Von Knoller is confused again whenever the subject is neither Food nor Golf related.

        Me, I fail to see why the President shouldn’t ‘campaign’ on his positions, when Republicans have been in non-stop campaign mode. At least PBO has ALSO been doing *his* job ….and theirs… re governing.

    This speech was a Masterpiece!!! Even by the high standard previously set by President Barack Obama this one stands out for me.
    The whole economic story was told: where we have come from, where we are now and where we are going and why we are not getting where we need to go as swiftly as we could be doing.
    The President’s tone was upbeat, cheerful, and although POTUS mentioned frustration twice, what I felt from him was good humor and determination to make things better for his people, no matter the unbelievable amount of insult aimed his way.

    The LOL moment was The President’s facial expression just before he got to mentioning the lawsuit. It said “so sue me,” silently.

    It is easy to see why the Media is determined to keep The President as far away from an audience as they can. I hate them for it, but as Chris Rock said about OJ, “I understand.” (Chris Rock’s comment was made about the muder happening after OJ saw Ron Goldman driving the sportscar OJ had paid for.)

    Hopefully POTUS is firing up the base cause we will need the Democratic base to come out to vote November. They can not stay home like 2010.Sure you might not be please with everything the President have done, but there is no way in hell we need the Tea Republicans controling the house and senate. We can not sit on our behinds and wait for Hillary and Bill to come to the rescue 2016. She won’t have anything to rescue if that come true.
