    I posted this on another heading but I wanted to do it again here 😉 :

    Guys, just had a brilliant idea!!!!! I think we should all call Rusty’s office every friday and demand: “Where are the jobs?” Just learned from my gorgeous lover Lawry, that Rusty is ‘appropriating’ our money, approximately $500,000 to secure a lawyer to defend DOMA since PBO won’t in the 10 cases that are currently in process. How lovely of Rusty to use up the money for this bullshite when he’s huffing and puffing and threatening to blow the entire financial house of the USA down unless he gets his “deep” cuts. A-hole. Then he had the nerve to say that he expects PBO to pay for the shit service (or refund it) he is wasting our money to buy. F-er. Where the F does this tool come off? That stupid mofo. So, since he has no problem wasting money trying to protect that shit law signed by that idiot Clinton (another mess PBO has had to clean up, hello DADT?) we should exercise our free inalienable rights and call that f-er out. I say synchronized calls to that shithead every Friday, just so that he doesn’t forget that we have his damned number. Piece of crap! Here is his number: 202-225-6205. 😡 😡

    I hope that somewhere between the morning briefing and the meeting with Sec. Gates is a nice looooong nap. The picnic should be fun (listen to me, acting like I’m invited, lol).

    Buenos noches, TOD familia. Abrazos y besos :-D.

    WASHINGTON — If you’re an azalea at the National Arboretum, you’re in luck — a Republican on the House Appropriations Committee is looking out for you. If you’re a woman, infant or child, however, you’re on your own.

    Slipped into the FY 2012 agriculture appropriations bill that the House is expected to take up today is an unusual provision on page 13 requiring the National Arboretum to maintain a very specific portion of its azalea collection.

    Good Night Wonderful Chipsticks! I am so thankful for all you do. I don’t know what we would without you. Get rest and ready to hit it again tomorrow. Now I get to catch up on all you have done today.

    Goodnight Chipsticks. Thank you. That weird configuration on your page came up when I tried again this evening so I typed in everything I could, clicked submit and up came a new page citing “error” on which I could complete the transaction. Contribution accepted after three trys. Well worth the effort!

      Gloria, if it was possible to leap in to my computer and give you a very sizeable hug, I would do it – but I haven’t figured out how to do it without breaking my monitor.

      Thank you SO much – and thank you for your patience with the OFA site. I had trouble with it this morning too when I was trying to up the target – which I now have to do because you magnificent people helped us reach the target last night.

      Thank you again Gloria, love ya!

    Looks like Rachel found her presidential candidate, that she has been tenuously looking for. The first republican GAY candidate -ray kraeger. She interviewed him tonight, and they both abused mitt Romney together…

    She is weird!

      JC Watts, Jr., former Republican congressman from Oklahoma is a black Republican. This is what his father, JC Watts, Sr. HIS OWN FATHER, had to say about that..

      “A black person voting Republican is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders.” JC Watts, Sr.

      I think the same could be said for gay Rethuglicans. I don’t get them either.

      I am so disappointed in Rachel.

      Rachel is a good advocate for progressive values, so I don’t really understand the attacks against her. Just because she shares a sexual orientation with the person she was interviewing is not a reason to attack her. She raised a legitimate issue against Mitt Romeny, so what’s the issue.

    While all these pundits try to place a political ‘spin’ on it, the simple reality is President Obama is actually concerned about the well-being of each Puerto Rican PERSON and their ability to determine their own destiny.

    The most important statement in his message is – once the people of Puerto Rico make a clear choice about their destiny, his Administration will support them.

    In other words, he is offering to the people of Puerto Rico the same clear message he addressed to the entire Arab and Persian world in his Cairo address in 2009.

    Unfortunate only willfully, and paid-to-be shills have access to licensed broadcast spectrum to vomit their idiocy on others, incessantly.

    Yes.We.Can. … DO.More.Together!
