Oceana~Best wishes from Oceana and moi as we head into 2015!

Happy New Year, DU!!

The President is doing all he can in spite of the Obstruction.. Including..

"Mr. Obama is also seeking to reshape the national debate over closing the facility in Cuba by casting it as a fiscal issue, arguing that keeping it open is cost-prohibitive."

"It’s important to note that the president didn’t really want to nominate Boggs.."

snip//

It’s important to note that the president didn’t really want to nominate Boggs, so this isn’t exactly an example of Senate Democrats betraying the White House. Boggs was included as part of a compromise reached with Republican senators from Georgia, as part of a deal on blue slips (for more on what a blue slip is, see our coverage from March).

But Democrats in the upper chamber weren’t part of that agreement and were under no obligations to honor it.


MOre facts..

But, of course the reality won't stop those who want to continue taking out their ignorant rage on President.

Happy New Year, Major.. and as we say on the Island..

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe watched in an emotional moment for James W. Ray

snip//

James W. Ray sat silently in the front row of the church meeting room, rubbing his eyes.

Ray wasn’t mourning a loss. Rather, the Vietnam veteran and felon wept over something that had just been returned to him — the right to vote.

“Those are tears of joy,” observed Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who came to First Baptist Church in South Richmond on Thursday to formally restore the rights of Ray and two others.

The governor was commemorating a year in which the secretary of the commonwealth’s office restored the rights of 5,113 Virginians to vote, serve on a jury, hold public office and become notaries.

snip//

“This is a great day in my life,” said Ray, convicted in 2005 of a nonviolent felony. He received an official proclamation from the governor along with LaQuita Fairley and Verneda Muhammad.

“This is what’s great about being governor,” said McAuliffe, who became a little emotional himself at seeing Ray’s reaction.

“I’ve said many times I think it’s important that everybody in life gets a second chance,” the governor told the audience of parishioners, politicians and rights restoration advocates. They cheered and applauded frequently throughout the event as officials and former offenders alike told of trying to restore civil rights — and the impact restoration will have on their lives.
