  1. That was an awwww overload. Just adorable. What a sweet dog Murkin is. Well, Hillary is leaving State, and the repubs are still bitching about her. I hope she enjoys her time off.

  2. I am watching this author lecture right now and Holyyyyyyyy Shit. Anybody read Foodopoly yet? We are being SOOOOOOOOOOOO screwed!

  3. Awww what cuteness!

  4. Where are you watching the author lecture? I see she’s going to be in CT on the 7th, but alas, I will not be. I’m at the airport as we speak!

  5. sophie, CSPAN2, Book corner.

  6. Thanks Upps. 🙂

  7. Sophie, hope you’re headed south. As soon as this house sells (not likely soon in this market) I will be out of here as fast as I can pack the truck and split. This global warming is painfully frigid.

  8. Uppity and All – (didn’t know which post was the best to post this on)

    Wanted to leave you all with this hardly noticed major victory for Erin Merryn – a young Victim of Childhood Sexual Assault(s) – who turned her victimization into a 14 year advocacy march for children – all the way to the Illinois Legislation – and finally WON.

    On January 24th, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed into law “Erin’s Law” requiring all Illinois schools – pre-K through 12 – to teach kids how to not only prevent, but to REPORT Perpetrators (because perpetrators always try to silence their young victims by means of threats and shame.)

    Erin will now be going around the country, state-by-state, to get this law implemented, nationwide.

    It’s about time. I believe it’s one of the most important events to happen in protecting children, confronting the taboos, breaking the silence and ensuring that perpetrators are brought to justice and taken out of society – sooner than “1 in 4” more victims later.

    Take care. (I am simply in need of getting as focused as possible on a major turning point for me.)

    Here’s Erin’s story – her journey and ultimate victory is well worth the watch to the end. (You’ll have to click to go to youtube to watch it.)

  9. I won’t link to it but Brazilenut has a column praising Hill at CNN. The witch has no shame.

  10. President This is What a Feminist Looks Like:

    The photo shows Obama targeting clay pigeons at the presidential retreat last August, according to the White House. In an interview published Sunday the president said he shoots skeet “all the time” during stays at the compound. The comment was a response to a question of whether he had ever held a gun.

    “Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there. And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake,” he said.

    (bolding mine)

  11. Haha! Bark is such a metrosexual I bet it would be funny to watch him shoot.

    Why Not, what a great story. When I was 13 yo, my best friend made me swear on my life that I would never tell anyone her secret…that our homeroom teacher was groping her. It was a very painful event, my friend absolutely refused to tell, too ashamed, and insisted I keep her confidence, which at that young age, I felt obliged to do. Years later, I found that he had groped a lot of girls, but finally got caught and went to jail. I definitely believe girls and boys should be taught to report these molestations and rapes. When you’re young, you are overpowered by embarrassment.

  12. Not the girlz. Swell.

    Not the girlz in the WH boyz club either.

    Just as well though. With the mental infants he hangs out with, I would want to go shooting with them, that’s for sure.

  13. I bet Brazile still cuddles with that inaugural blankey she took, the one Obama sat on or something. Eff her. I hope if Hillary does run, that she gives Donna the postion she deserves: On the outside looking in.

  14. I read that brazile opinion last night and thought it had some back-handed slaps at Hillary, such as saying obama deserved praise for picking her as SOS and that other POTUSes first SERVED their predecessors as SOS. Really? Well, shove it brazile. The American people are lucky that Hillary accepted the SOS position which he offered to her because he knows he needed her to run foreign affairs. Despite all that crap about experience being over-rated that came out of brazile and obama, experience is necessary and Hillary had it 2008. As for her SERVING him. LOL! I’m sure Hillary ran her own Department, and I know that when she was sworn in, the oath said nothing about serving that ahole. Protect and defend the US and uphold the Constitution.

    I suspect barazile wrote that begrudgingly. She should have remained silent. It’s not like Hillary is going to hire her to run her campaign. Hillary rises, while brazile’s pick is a disappointing flop.

  15. I saw the brazile article and didn’t read it. I’ll let you know when I’m interested in what Donna has to say about anything. Don’t hold your breath.
    On another note, Riverdaughter has a video up of Hillary Clinton’s last day at State. Listening to Sec. Clinton’s sincere and eloquent, and I might add, TelePrompter-less speech was incredible. The best part was the reaction from those who worked with her and for her….in short…they loved her! #whatcouldhavebeen #whatSHOULDhavebeen.

  16. Yes I am in a southern and warm place–San Juan, where the current temp is 80.

    I agree with everything everyone said about Brazile. Same is true about Tweety lately. It must be killing both of them. Tsk!

  17. Upps, I am getting that book Foodopoly. I want to know what companies to avoid.

  18. Sophie, hope you have lots of fun!

  19. Hubbie got this in an email and wanted to post it. Sorry its so long, also, nothing new to us:

    Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared “Social Security ” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats. Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana … I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!

    “Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight!!!
    1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.

    2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

    3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.

    4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and “your ilk” pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your “shill commission” are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

    5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now “you morons” propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because “you idiots” mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.

    6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you “incompetent bastards” spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.
    To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” to your incompetence.

    Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

    1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

    2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

    3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

    4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
    It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.

    And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed, leech.
    That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

    And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch. NO, I did not stutter.

    If you like the way things are in America delete this.

    If you agree with what a Montana citizen, Patty Myers, says, please PASS IT ON!!!!

    P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits “entitlements”. WHAT AN INSULT!!!!
    I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years “It’s my money”-give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks .

  20. What kind of dog is Murkin, does anyone know? He looks G. Retriever-ish.

  21. Socal, I plan on getting the book as well, but I’ll be the companies to avoid are mostly anyone on the shelves of grocery stores!

  22. Yeah the surprise comes when you find out that Pepsi and Nestle own…..well…….just about everything.

  23. Socal he looks to be an elderly golden.

  24. If you can, try to catch her on the rerun on Booktv. That’s CSPAN2.

  25. Iiiiiiiiiiiiiii think i’ll go back to san juan.

    I know a boat you can get on!

    Oh hell, let me get the video.

  26. They don’t have bobsleds in San Juan!

  27. Love it!

  28. They stole my Nikon camera there.

  29. Ok well she’s giving me a headache.

  30. She wouldn’t have made it here.

  31. FCS only one of them wasn’t blond.

  32. Bill says if we’re going to clutter the place with broadway, we have to do Cats.

  33. Ann Reinking was 50% legs, she was a great dancer because of it. A woman who should have never been allowed to get old.

  34. This has got to be photoshop, because the recoil didn’t take his cheek off

  35. In the Age of Obama, it’s all about deception.

  36. He looks like he’s pullin’ a Palin with that awkward gun pose. And I love him just as much, which is to say, not at all.

  37. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was photoshopped. That dance scene with Ann R. is my favorite from that movie. She is amazing.

  38. The videos reminded me I saw Fosse on Broadway. That was the only musical other than Rent.

    Almost 12 years ago now. Oy, it’s been a long 12 years.

  39. He looks like he’s pullin’ a Palin with that awkward gun pose. And I love him just as much, which is to say, not at all.


  40. Obama, it’s all about deception. 😆
