Wonderful, she.. and quite timely..

I was on some site last night related to what I was researching but then further down there were other links and one of said something like "abc proves Michelle is a fake".. or something to that effect. I didn't link and just shook my head but it was weird.. "abc"!

Figured out there's MONEY in hate.. but, Love's Gonna Win. This is from the repeal of DOMA but we know it's the same haters..



HUGS from Michelle are the Best!







The Best Hug of all .. according to these two..



the haters don't know what they're missing..

Mahalo for your thread, she~

Thank you, Steve.. Benen that is.. We've been down this road before..

"Indeed, recent history offers a helpful perspective. When the bridge controversy first arose, the governor’s aides characterized the allegations as “crazy,” and mocked journalists for having the audacity to even ask questions about it. We now know those denials were wrong and top officials in the Christie administration were lying – misconduct for which the governor has since apologized. And yet, here we are again, with Team Christie dismissing credible allegations and condemning journalists, not for having erred, but for raising questions the governor and his admirers don’t like."

Thank you, PS



Inspiringly beautiful photos of kids, animals and nature at their finest, Don..

thank you! Elena has the perfect subjects to capture forever.

Rare Photos of Martin Luther King at Home~Time Magazine


The Kings at Home
Born in Atlanta, Martin Luther King Jr. moved to Montgomery, Ala., with his new wife Coretta in 1955 after King accepted a position as pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. King met Coretta while he was studying for his Ph.D. at Boston University and they were married in June 1953. Yolanda, their first child, above, was born in November 1955.



Man of Letters
During the years King and his family lived in Montgomery, they occupied the parsonage affiliated with the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. Many of the sermons that King delivered from the pulpit of the church — inspiring those participating in the Montgomery bus boycott — were composed there.



Conversation
King said in an interview that this photograph was taken as he tried to explain to his daughter Yolanda why she could not go to Funtown, a whites-only amusement park in Atlanta. King claims to have been tongue-tied when speaking to her. "One of the most painful experiences I have ever faced was to see her tears when I told her Funtown was closed to colored children, for I realized the first dark cloud of inferiority had floated into her little mental sky."



In Song
Coretta, a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, reluctantly gave up a career in music when she married King.



The Horror
On April 25, 1960, Atlanta Ku Klux Klansmen burned crosses in front of several black homes in the city. The King residence was one of the houses that were targeted.



Tense Moment
In this photograph, Coretta is upset with her husband, who had been attacked the night before by a disturbed white racist but had not defended himself. Though the police urged King to press charges, he refused. "The system we live under creates people such as this youth," he said. "I'm not interested in pressing charges. I'm interested in changing the kind of system that produces such men."

You bet your a$$, Christie..

"Over the weekend, Mr. Christie, who has appeared on MSNBC many times since taking office, angrily denounced it as a “partisan network” that is “almost gleeful in their efforts attacking” him. Christie aides have called it a “feeding frenzy.”"

Almost gleeful? Look at what you've done, genius.. you created this Culture of Bully and you're either the most incompetent buffoon on the Planet or the nearly the Vile. Take your pick, gov crispy.

And, we don't need any fucking lectures from Colin Reid of this Missive to Mayor Steven Fulop of Jersey City..

This is what Colin Reid(Crispy spokesman) had to say to Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop about the "yanking of access".. I saw it on Rachel's show, paused it, and copied it down. It's disgusting..

"Mayor Fulop's words and actions must be viewed through the lens of partisan politics and his attempt to advance his own political agenda."

Can you imagine Mayor Fulop's reaction to that? Shit like this is precisely why Revenge for the Culture of Bully's ACTIONS is going to be so SWEET.

"Mr. Christie, who is known to be sensitive to slights, appears to be genuinely stung by the network’s coverage." a river Just like a bully.. now he's the victim

thanks elfin~

No, the only empty tin cans are the ones

that act like they know shit about what the President is thinking..

Too bad he can't wave his magic wand and zip it's done. He knows things take time.. like DADT, DOMA and the advancement and acceptance of Gay Marriage.

DADT- "In the Dustbin of History After 17 Years"

http://www.hrc.org/laws-and-legislation/federal-laws/dont-ask-dont-tell-repeal-act-of-2010?gclid=CJLd-Lb0i7wCFTCCQgodx0EABg

". By striking down Section 3 of DOMA, the Supreme Court has affirmed that all loving and committed couples who marry deserve equal legal respect and treatment. It marks an enormous victory for equal justice under the law and ends DOMA’s two-tiered system for marriage, which for over 16 years has forced the government to pick and choose among marriages and create a "gay exception" that only caused pain, uncertainty, and financial harm."

Oh, the opposite of Mayor Steven Fulop of Jersey City, who got this retort when he complained

about No Access after Bridgegate Broke.. From his Crispiness' flunky, Colin Reid..

"Unknown" until

Right freaking NOW! Thanks Mayor Zimmer!



Link

From your link..

.."The debate, on October 11, was Guadagno’s best chance to raise her public profile. She highlighted the fact that she has spent the last four years heading up economic development and offering tax incentives to businesses to set up or expand in New Jersey."

But, now the question is HOW did she go about her business "heading up economic development" in NJ?

Another snip//

"..Despite her low-profile, Guadagno has made some missteps. In 2011, Guadagno alienated some members of the state’s arts community by saying that the New Jersey State Council on the Arts had improperly awarded $300,000 worth of contracts for public art projects.

The council’s former executive director, Steve Runk, resigned after Guadagno called for his dismissal. Runk, who now works for Princeton University, declined to comment on the events, saying only that he didn’t want to relive the “terrible things that were done.” But Guadagno’s accusations never came to anything after a state investigation. Many in the arts community believe that Runk was unfairly demonized and damaged for reasons unknown."

Uh huh.

Pic to make her less "unknown".. Taken before GWB/Hoboken/Etc Etc Etc Scandals..



Thanks A for the article

yeah, it was all explained very well on Steve Kornacki's show..

exactly why she waited so long.

But, of course the goPropaganda machine will slick right over that.

Wow, what a snake pit.. What if CCrispy hadn't have had

Fed Funds for Sandy to hold over Everyone's 'EAD?!

From your link, fd..

"Allegations of retribution are at the center of the bridge scandal, in which top aides to Christie caused a massive traffic jam, possibly to punish Fort Lee’s mayor for not endorsing Christie. Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop has said the administration suddenly yanked his access to a contingent of top officials slated to offer guidance on navigating the state bureaucracy after he declined to back the governor."

This is what Colin Reid(Crispy spokesman) had to say to Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop about the "yanking of access".. I saw it on Rachel's show, paused it, and copied it down. It's disgusting..

"Mayor Fulop's words and actions must be viewed through the lens of partisan politics and his attempt to advance his own political agenda."

Can you imagine Mayor Fulop's reaction to that? Shit like this is precisely why Revenge for the Culture of Bully's ACTIONS is going to be so SWEET.
