      I CAN ANSWER ONE OF THOSE QUESTIONS ALYCEE…AS A MATTER OF FACT THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER CAN PROBABLY ANSWER THAT TOO…POLICE DEPTS. ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE ARMING AND GEARING UP DUE TO THREATS FROM ANTI-GOVERNMENT EXTREMISTS…YOU CAN THANK THE NAZI PARTY, THE KKK AND THE TEA PARTY FOR THE CHANGES IN COSTUME AND VEHICLES…THE REPUBLICANS TOO ARE PUSHING A REVOLUTION IN THIS COUNTRY…WE ARE FRANKLY AT CIVIL WAR STATUS…MY HUSBAND IS WITH A POLICE DEPT…THEY ARE BEING PREPARED…THE WAY THE WORLD IS GOING WE WILL BE NEEDING THEM.

        Sue, an interesting theory, however, I’ve never seen this time of para-military police presence called out for RW/TP/KKK groups; seems the p-m police are only called out on people of color and the poor/perceived poor.

              I hear what you’re saying Sue, but I worry that our police departments cannot handle the job for which they’re hired for to “protect and serve” the citizenry (ALL) with the weapons and gear that they have now. It’s a problem with them shooting people for no good reason ( hands in the air, reaching for wallets or running away ( I’m talking not a serial killer here or a possible terrorists).

              There needs to be a better job on the people hired – non KKK affiliated, able to remain calm under stress and no bigots or racists need apply. To many loose their lives for nothing other than being naked and mentally unhinged or walking while black. Police departments across the country need way more mental accessments and training before giving them this kind of hardware.

                I HEAR WHAT YOU ARE SAYING AND TOTALLY AGREE…HOWEVER…ALL POLICE BUDGETS ARE SHORT OR HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM BY THE CITY GOVERNMENT…YOU WON’T SEE DEPTS. SPENDING MONEY ON EXTRA TRAINING AND FRANKLY THERE IS NO TIME ANYWAY…THERE ARE TOO MANY THREATS AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT. OUR CITY COPS HAD TO BRING THEIR OWN TOILET PAPER LAST YEAR…MR. BIG IN INDY STEALS GRANTS AND APPLIES THEM TO HIS OWN INTERESTS…HOPEFULLY THESE ‘CONS’ WILL GO IN THE NEXT ELECTION.

      The only thing I can suggest was that news helicopters were said to be interfering with police helicopters who were trying to keep track of flare-ups——and there were shots fired at both. (And I agree—that it looks way over-blown with the military gear)

    [I really enjoy reading Smartypants' posts. Another great one, apologies if it has been posted here already.]:

    [.....] But she takes any opportunity she can to bolster her own image – often at the expense of others. The recovering therapist in me sees someone who is not quite comfortable with herself and therefore tends to be defensive. Yeah, I know, that’s what most politicians do. But its the overt and covert “digs” at others that is at least part of the off-putting “tone” that Giordano was referring to. The “Pavlovian response” is about remembering how that felt in 2008 (as well as Obama’s pitch perfect response). It also probably explains why her tendency so far has been to distance herself from President Obama this time around. She’s still feeling the need to define herself…after all this time.

    I happen to be someone who thinks that “how” a politician operates is often just as important (if not more important) than “what” they want to do. Hillary Clinton certainly isn’t the first or last politician to be constrained by ego problems. But I worry that if she becomes the first woman president, all holy hell will come her way – just as its come to Barack Obama as the first African American president. Defensive bluster won’t cut it when that happens. You have to be strong enough to rise above it – otherwise the country will suffer.

    There once was a woman we couldn’t see
    In a far-off place from you and me
    She provided this forum for us to use
    TheObamaDiary she called it (we were so amused).

    Some weren’t there when she first began
    But newcomers catch up as fast as they can
    You can post news here of real consequence
    Or you can ramble and mumble and make no sense.

    She gave us one codifier, so there’s no doubt
    If you hate President Obama, no doubt you’re OUT
    The rest of us Rise & Shine, nap, or go to bed
    With visions of the First Family dancing in our head.

    Along with Pete Souza, NW, LL, LP, and amk
    This blog is Chips’ way of starting each day
    She gives us memories, reminders ~ with a dose of hope
    She posts news of people from Cousin Henry to the Pope.

    She offers us photos and images and a tweet or two
    (Packages our enthusiasm and helps us know what to do)
    She gives us pics of her Danny and her baking woes
    (But if she mentions porta-potty shots, #JustSayNo).

    Truthfully, I don’t know how Chips can do so much
    To keep going each day, without losing her touch
    She’s Type A, meticulous, overachiever all the way
    (Although her photos discount it, as we saw one other day).

    Even on her birthday, President Obama’s on her mind
    She found when we found him to lead, it was a real find
    I never see any faults with him, and also throw her no shade
    Happy Birthday, Chips! Let’s start the freakin’ parade!

  43. August 13, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    Happy birthday, Chips!! Thank you for helping us all to keep our sanity and find a place of support. Hope you are enjoying your day. Tell Danny to behave himself!!

    Amen, jacquelineoboomer. TY NerdyW. I am eating my third piece of delicious red velvet cake in honor of my Chips. I picked it up after I left my doctor’s office. I told him that I was going to do it. He looked at me and asked again whose birthday was it? And boy oh boy, I explained to him about our Great TOD Family and our Beautiful Chips. He is so cute and knows me so well. He smiled and said,” I will see you in three months and your weight better be lower than anyone of your previous visits”. I replied, “Yes, Doc., I promise you, it will. Now, I need to go to my bakery and pick up the cake.” He replied, “Nice trip”.HZ
