          Hi LL!

          Just checked my email. It seems I’ve been released from prison!! Weeeeeeeeeeee!!!

          Here’s what they told me: “It looks like a disproportionately large number of users, including ones you followed or @replied, have chosen to either block your account or report it as spam.” Can’t imagine what I wrote that madelarge numbers of people wanna block me. I don’t directly engage any wingers unless they tweet me first. I’ve blocked a couple of folks myself though. Oh well. Happy to be back!

          Sorry VC, I must’ve missed that. Honestly don’t know. They claim a bunch of people blocked me.I think their damed software is just screwy, that’s all. Not something I can control, when I don’t know what tweets precipitated people blocking me. I don’t use incendiary language (okay, I let ’em fly here pretty regularly, cuz I’m with family, but I can’t recall doing it on Twitter) and I don’t directly engage wingers. In fact, I just ignore the ones who seem to want to engage me, except for a couple. Even then I try respond without sounding like I’m personally attacking them. Sigh! Anyhoo… I’m back. That’s all the matters.

    Dumb blond girl on Hardball says she’s for Romney because of …………………(long pause)……………Freedom!

    Update in Stephanie( don’t mess with my Stephanie)-

    Obama campaign deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter Thursday stood by her remarks that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have politicized the attacks in Benghazi.

    “I was asked why it became such a political circus,” she said on Fox. “Who was the first person to respond to the libya attacks? It was Romney. Mitt Romney was criticized for that response because it was political.”

    Cutter said earlier today in a CNN interview that the GOP ticket was “reckless and irresponsible” in bringing politics into the Libya investigation. She stood by those remarks on Fox.

    “We have two people campaigning around the country accusing us of covering something up. Just yesterday, Romney accused us of covering this up. You know how investigations go,” Cutter told host Bret Baier.

    The Obama administration has come under fire for putting out contradictory statements about the September attack in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four State Department employees.

    “This administration has treated this entire tragedy with the utmost seriousness to get to the bottom of the attacks,” Cutter said. “That’s why we are being responsible and diligent about our investigation.”

    “Next time I’ll bring my notes,” Cutter said at the end of the interview.

    Am I remembering correctly? Did someone say this is his last fundraiser of the campaign?

    Just sneaking in here to see what’s going on. Been busy with work all day long and not done yet. Hope I don’t miss the debate but looks like I will not make it home in time. Hope you guys live blog so maybe I can peak once in a while.

  10. October 11, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    I figured out why the right was screaming about the Polls, prior to the debate.
    So we would not do the same, while they changed the likely voter model, to deflate us.
    It’s Karl Rove stuff, they have been doing it for awhile, now.

    Marsha Blackburn, Dumb Person Tn., said that all crises created by giving old people vouchers and sending them out to secure nice health insurance companies willing to insure them would be solved by “all the innovations out there”. She actually said that! We laughed. Idiocy beyond belief.

    Now don’t get PO at me but the more I see Charlie Crist the more I like him…I know, I know it’s probably advantageous to Charlie but I actually think he likes and respects PBO….he didn’t have to go to that thing tonight…I’m sure he has already given all he can give money wise……also, I kinda thought PBO got a little emotional tonight….just something in the way he was speaking at the end….

      I like Charlie Criist too…when he embraced PBO, he displayed that he is a sensible human being who is also respectful. And he pissed of the GOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

      I’m very glad for him. A relatively popular Republican crossing over to POTUS in battleground Florida? Big gain!

  15. October 11, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    Apparently, their is a new Mason Dixon poll that has Robnry up 7 in Florida saying the President is in free fall.
    Mason Dixon is garbage. How can that happen when Democrats outnumber Republicans by 450k? And a 30 point lead amongst Hispanics?
    These polls are really discounting democrats and I am sick of the manipulation.

    Good Evening, Everybody. Just getting home. We are on fire at the “U” and our President got jokes. OMG, he really is a hoot!! I didn’t get a chance to follow his motorcade because it left from another direction. I guess the word on the street was out that “Aunt sis in an Obama starker”. LOL. I am getting a glass of wine and waiting for the VEEP because he is a ‘BFD’!!!

    I am not listening to Rachel, Matthews Ed, or any of the B.S. coming from these cable pundits. I am so sick of acting like this is some Sunday football pre-game show, where every pundit has to tell what must be done.

      Congrats on your win Donna. That’s our good luck sign. PBO was looking for a Nationals/White Sox series, but our guys blew it. Oh well, I’ll root for your team then. They deserve it, been awhile for them.

      And this poll says he is losing the Medicare vote by 14 points.
      It’s almost like you can put The Presidents name where Robney is, that’s how out of whack this new poll is…

    According to CSPAN, 70 million watched the debate in ’08. That was more than any of the Presidential debates during that time.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The Troubled Asset Relief Program, which the federal government used to bail out many of the nation’s banks and automakers, will end up costing taxpayers an estimated $24 billion, which is 25% less than the previous estimate.
    The latest estimates come from the Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan scorekeeper for Congress on matters related to federal spending.

      So why doesn’t the congressman want to be called the congressman – thinks he might be called out on all those votes he made in congress?

    Baking kale chips to go with my Strawberry Martguerita to go with the debate. Home alone so don’t have to share, I should be pretty toasty by the time it’s all over.

      Ooooooo…what is your recipe for Kale Chips….i have been wanting to try them…

        I wrote this long reply and lost it, so here goes again. wash and dry kale. it must be thoroughly dry to get crispiness. Toss kale with 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt (I use sea salt or season salt). If you want toss with Parmesan cheese, or any other seasonings you like. Line baking pan with parchment paper or spray it with Pam or olive oil spray. Layer kale in pan in single layer and bake to crispy. I bake at 200 degrees for about 30-45 minutes. Others bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes, or somewhere in the middle 275 for 20-25 minutes. I think it depends on how dry the kale was before baking. Watch them pretty closely during the last few minutes so as not to burn and get bitter. Enjoy!
