      So True!! We need brick and mortar libraries and librarians which are necessary ingredients in a republic. I was a library nerd/aid from the time I was 9 years old ( Little Women was the first book that I checked out). I was a library nerd/ aid from 6th grade through college. I made my High School students learn how to use research tools other than Goggle for a project on American Poet Laureates; they whined and begged, but I held firm. At the end of it, the college-bound students were glad that the mean teacher made them learn how to do this.

      Hay right wing haters when Putin went into Georgia in 2008, guess who was on VACATION, and he stayed on vacation, he didn’t come back to D.C. Guess who? I will give you one guess, he look into Putin’s eyes and saw his soul, and saw that he was a good man. Now let me ask do you haters have any right to say one darn word about President Obama and his family being in Florida this pass week-end?.

    The U.S. government is developing a new presidential limousine intended for use by the president in 2017, TIME reported Monday.

    The new vehicle will replace “The Beast,” a 2009 Cadillac model that currently transports President Barack Obama. It features 8-inch armor plates capable of stopping explosive devices, 5-inch windows, a biochemically sealed interior and extensive communications gear.

    Sharyl Atkisson’s resignation from CBS News was almost immediately given top billing over at Breitbart.

    “REPORT: STAR BENGHAZI REPORTER ATTKISSON EXITS CBS DUE TO ‘LIBERAL BIAS,'” read the headline to the story by John Nolte.

    It received similar treatment at The Blaze and Townhall.

    Any time a reporter for the mainstream media — at CBS, no less — resigns over purported liberal bias, the right-wing blogosphere is bound to light up.


    Anyone surprised?

    Of course not.

    • March 10, 2014 at 5:41 pm

      Nuff said: “Attkisson is working on a book currently titled “Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington” about her experience reporting on the Obama administration.”

        Atkinson already stared with her Fox B.S. She call herself a reporter, I’m laughing my butt off. 🙂

      Sharyl Atkisson being accused of “liberal bias” is the biggest joke of the year, unless your definition of “liberal bias” means reporting every story anti-Obama style.

      Let me send CBS news a email about the departing of Sharyl Atkinson.

        March 10, 2014 at 6:23 pm

        I just sent that email. I told them one day I hope CBS could get back to the news network it used to be when Walter Cronkite was the news anchor. I am glad to see that Sharyl Atkinson has lefted, and maybe she will go to FOX were the truth does not matter, over there at FOX they make up their own news.

    It seems safe enough to return, since I’ve been looking over my shoulder (and peering through the TOD window) since my hasty exit above and Amk is nowhere in sight. Phew!

      I just popped in but haven’t seen a post by him so I’m guessing you’re safe.

        I was mentioning him earlier (an innocent comparison, you understand) when I was told he’s back. Thought it best to make myself scarce until I could determine whether he was mellowed by his extended trip, or feeling a bit grouchy because he had really missed us all. 😉

    re: CBS and Sharyl Attkinson (good riddance)

    Watching @Maddow’s documentary on Oil, or Why We Invaded Iraq (to enrich Halliburton and Wall Street) was an unsettling experience of reliving the horror of the GWBush years.

    Americans who elect high-level employees of Defense Contractors (e.g., Cheney) or Koch (e.g., NC Governor McCrory) are the ones playing marbles instead of chess. I saw Kathryn Kivett comment last week that she’s now a registered Independent (I am too — CA allows Indies to vote for their choice of GOP or Dem during primary elections), but she didn’t mention the Koch Coal Ash spill that @Maddow was following closely until Russia invaded Ukraine last week. Am interested in hearing from other Tar Heels (Bill, AnnieBella, et.al.) on this environmental catastropher.

    Apparently Attkinson *believes* that CBS is too-left leaning for her “journalism.”

    Some reminders about CBS:

    (This especially galls me after watching Maddow’s Iraq documentary):

    And of course, the he-devil himself, Cheney this weekend (already posted, but is in keeping with the “bash CBS” theme):

    Hoping Meta is here…

    Since Russia is at the top the news now, various websites have resurrected the 1988 photo of KGB-era Putin that our Pete Souza took while accompanying Reagan in Russia.

    You can hear Souza’s explanation of the photo in the Hardball video link in the tweets (aired last Thursday, Mar 6):

    I’m sure there’s a moral here.

    > Subject: I’m so sorry
    >> A man received message from his neighbor …
    >> “Sorry sir, I am using your wife…
    >> I am using day and night …
    >> I am using when you are not present at home….
    >> In fact, I am using more than you are using……
    >> I confess this because now I feel very much guilt…
    >> Hope You will accept my sincere apologies ”
    >> And the husband shot his wife…
    >> A few minutes later he received another message :
    >> Sorry sir, spelling mistake … wifi not wife.

    Awesome post by Danny today!! (I know I’m late as usual.) With all that incredible sweet loving (destructive) energy he must need a lot of sleep. Man, if there’s one thing dogs can do anytime anywhere is SLEEP. Please share a pic of him in Doggie Dreamland sometime!!

    Oh, Danny, what a stir you have caused here, with your own wordpress id, your own blog post.

    Nickelby is working on his wordpress id and password. Kasper wants a movie deal (Danny will not get the better of him!) Pearl is demanding a personal assistant…. Hey! Isn’t that what I am?

    Total chaos here. Thanks a lot.

    (ssshhhhhh….. don’t want them to hear……Congrats on your most excellent first blog post!
