    The tweet from Chris Barca says it all.

    Nerdy, love the tweets. The first one occurred to me awhile ago, how the ACA was an economic stimulus in so many ways: putting more spendable $$ in people’s pockets, stimulating hiring and business in the medical and other industries, etc.

    But my fave of all these tweets is the series by D-Money McSmoothie (how great is that name?:-) ) !! The Hammonds, Bundys, and their like are absolutely looters, and on a way bigger scale than some random guy grabbing a TV.

        Hiya Sue! Like GGail said, PBO’s “playing golf” is just a guise & euphemism for “he’s obliterating a terrorist or terrorist holding somewhere.” :):)

    may be I move in the wrong circles but I think that the NRA and the extremists on gun rights have maxed out their accommodation among most people with common sense.

    the nra may have overstepped basic acceptance by:

    – opposing everything that most people see as basic common sense policies/actions (background checks, smart technology etc),

    – buying up a huge number of the legislature,

    – pushing laws that make no sense (open carry, stand your ground, concealed carry, unfettered access of guns everywhere)

    – denial of research on gun violence

    – removal of liability to be sued.

    – etc

    sometimes, when you are the peak of your arrogance, you forget what many have always been taught : “pride comes before a fall”;

    by the time you realize that you could have made a few compromises on some issues, you may find that there is no longer a partner at the opposite end of the table/issue with whom you can negotiate;

    there will come a time the nra and gun manufacturers wish that their leadership had taken PBO’s invitation to meet and work out jointly on reducing gun violence

      Global, I think you’re absolutely right. Because the NRA and its bought and paid for legislators were so uncompromising and so far out in their demands, they inadvertently went to far with ordinary Americans. I’m feeling a sea change in the air as prominent Dems come out in support of sensible gun legislation without the mealy-mouthed words that used to indicate their fear of offending the NRA. Hoping the day will come when getting an A from the NRA will be a mark of shame for a legislator, not an honor. PBO, in his greatness, changed the course of the conversation about guns. He gave us the courage to speak up.

        yes, he gave us the courage to speak up and determination to work on a goal for a long time – no matter how long this takes.

        I look forward to the day, as you put it so nicely: “when getting an A from the NRA will be a mark of shame for a legislator, not an honor”

    Thanks zizi and nerdy for your posts–any time I get off track, I can count on the good folks here to remind me that we're on the path with PBO, and that is always good!

    Did you all see this new essay in Politico? I know they're often off base, but this piece, about the amazing artworks inspired by and depicting President Obama, references the art created in response to the dramatic impact of his leadership–wonderful to see!

    Standing in the kitchen …. multiple gun shots in front of our home …. significant portion of the Seattle police dept in the neighborhood … at least 1 gun shot victim being transported …. have no idea what precipitated the situation ….

    Nerdy, I can’t tell you how happy your tweet summary made me after an exhausting day of cleaning closets. And Zizi, if you’re around somewhere–thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your post gave me such hope for the future. I think you nailed what the President is planning. Among many things, he will move heaven and earth to ensure he has a Democratic successor and that the forward course he has set for this country continues.

    Prof Tribe taught the current SCOTUS’ Chief Justice, Mr. Roberts. He also taught Pres Obama. And Rafael Edwardo Cruz as well. Mr. Tribe said that Pres Obama and Roberts were better students.
    He is praised for his Mind and his intellectual abilities as they pertain to the US Constitution.

    The way James Comey and the FBI have handled the mess in Burns is a total disgrace. It’s become an invitation to every low life RW terrorist in the country to go get some press coverage.

      I agree, Bill. Not only they didn’t have the intel on these thugs (with a previous history) occupying the fed lands, now they are doing jacksquat from these thugs recruiting more thugs. comey seems to be one of PBO’s rare slipups.

    don’t know if any of this is true but I am reading that another group of heavily armed individuals has shown up at the wildlife refuge and ordered the bundy’s to go home – delivered a document & surrounded them;

    if these groups confront each other and there is a shoot out, then expect the “small government” “freedom from tyranny” groups to blame PBO and the government;
