Thank you for once again exposing the ODS of GG that is so entrenched it makes him

stupid. Knowing of course that he has a following that will eat that crazy talk up and ask for more.

Excellent OP, msanthrope thank you.

BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.The great mayor of Tallahassee stands for marriage equality. Today, History is made

Equality Florida with Andrew Gillum and R. Jai Gillum, Jackson and Caroline

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum has a special message for all loving couples living in counties that have ended courthouse marriage ceremonies:

"At midnight tonight, most of the state of Florida will take a collective step towards complete equality by affording people the right to marry whomever they choose. I am disheartened, however, by the decision of several counties around Florida to discontinue the opportunity for people to have courthouse marriage ceremonies. In light of these unfortunate announcements, I would like to extend an invitation to the loving couples of Duval, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Baker, Clay, Pasco, Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Calhoun, Liberty, Franklin, and Wakulla Counties to hold their marriage ceremonies here in the Capital City. I hope that this issue reminds us that love is never wrong, and that equality must continue to be a part of the progress we work to drive in our community, our state, and in our country. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, ‘The time is always right to do what is right.'"


to the Democratic Mayor of Tallahassee, Florida inviting the "loving couples" to his city to be married! "Love Is Never Wrong"

Yes, it's good to know the details instead of ranting and Raving @ Pres Obama like so many have

at this "nomination". More on this, thank you, rpannier..


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..

From Dec 31, 2014 in LBN.. http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014977274#post43

Senator Announces Democrats Have Enough Votes To Sustain An Obama Veto Of Keystone XL


Schumer said, “I think there will be enough Democratic votes to sustain the president’s veto…Our Republican colleagues say that this is a jobs bill but that really is not true at all. By most estimates it would create several thousand temporary construction jobs and only 35 permanent jobs…Why create very few jobs with the dirtiest of energy from tar sands when you can create tens of thousands more clean jobs using wind and solar? Our Republican colleagues are doing what they always do: they’re appeasing a few special interests — in this case oil companies and pipeline companies and not really doing what’s good for the average middle class family in terms of creating jobs.”


Senator Schumer! Yeah, if the republicons want "Jobs" so bad.. pass Bernie's Bill!

•Rebuild confidence and pride in bureau


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."


Thank you, DI.. Happy New Year!
