For the past 40 years, I trusted 60 Minutes reporting and in-depth research.

No more.

I've added 60 Minutes to my "nah, don't want to waste my time" viewing list where it joins Morning Joe (because of sell-out Mika), Meet The Press, and other associated network blah blab blah GOP cheering sections.

Life is funny. I am now back to where I started, mostly reading and being highly selective when it comes to opinion TV.

I trust Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, Steve Kornacki, Melissa-Harris Perry because they provide attribution to their commentary.

I used to trust 60 Minutes.

Bye-bye

Christie is the new W. Bush do not mis-underestimate him for ONE minute.

"ha" we said when we learned Bush was running!

But voters thought he was an "Everyman" good to have a few beers with.

Then the election was so close - that the doofus slipped in and stole it right from under our noses while we bent over and took it...while we sat quietly home not believing what was happening.

Christie must be taken seriously, otherwise we will get fucked by the big guy while Mary Pat gleefully flashes her mouthful of teeth.

Remember where you heard it.

I just hung up from being blindsided by a Tea-Party loving "friend" - I'm speechless, shocked.

I feel like I was run over by a semi....I was woefully unprepared for the turn in the conversation that was waiting for me.

But it was her visceral hate that came spewing out like a raging thunderstorm that shook me.

I intellectually understand that there is a nuclear level of hate, but to come face to face (or ear to ear) with it shocked my heart and soul.

I cannot let her have the last word. I am compelled and driven to respond. I must do it for myself, for my ethics even if I know she will reject whatever I write.

I must respond to her bold-faced verbal attack leveled at the "government programs that allow dead-beats, cheats, and now forced health care insurance" ...

Wish me luck. Any words of wisdom you toss my way will be appreciated.





Down to the basics: They want to impeach our President.

Sweep away all the noise, the blah blah blah and at the bottom of the well you will find their dirty not-so-dark-secret is that "government default" is an impeachable offense.

This reads like an overwrought teen-age drama of souped up hot-rods playing chicken on a dark country road.
They are driving this country into default and do not plan on blinking......for one reason and one reason only...impeachment.
They are bound together like blood brothers having taken a death till we part oath. Eric Cantor has the reigns...John Boner has no balls...and Mitch McConnell didn't get his one term wish....but is driving the bus toward impeachment.

edit for typo

I am very upset and angry that the smart people didn't prepare for the Internet logjam

that signing up for health insurance would cause.

It is inexcusable because it gives the anti-Obamacare naysayers one more talking point..

The administration had 3 years to prepare for Oct. 1st - they had 3 years to figure out how to allow for huge numbers to sign up and didn't...

Oh brother.

I guess my rant is because I am depressed. Depressed because I am having a hard time processing how much hate there really is in this country.

I just feel like we need something big -one thing -any thing ...that can stand as good news.

The negative, pounding, organized, relentless GOP drumbeat against

Obamacare is blasting like a rocket into the stratosphere. They are desperate, strident and everywhere.

I watched David Frum on Bill Maher pound away at breakneck speed point after point why the American people hate it.....

The lack of push back whenever a Democratic surrogate is present is...stunning...allowed the GOP to seize the message when they could have said..."you lie." The GOP has gained traction in the polls..




Leadership opened the door that led to Summers withdrawal when

Tester, Warren, Brown, Merkley et al....stepped up and voiced their intention to vote no.

Once that happened, the long-running anti-Summers rumble among the base, turned onto a roar...

Have we changed, or have they? Is it possible for us to have another run at having our voices heard?

Re: Larry Summers. Sign here:

A 30 second effort - vote your voice!

Thank you, Sen. Sharrod Brown, w/Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen Jeff Merkley for

declaring in advance - they will vote NO should President Obama nominate Larry Summers.

I am emailing my support to these senators.


Dear President Obama; The anti-war roar resonating from

coast to coast has been a long time coming...and no disrespect intended, but shouldn't be a surprise.

It seems as though huge numbers of people who voted for you twice, have drawn their red line in the sand.

Supporters tried to heard on a whole bevy of important issues- wondered why you refused to put single-payer on the table BEFORE the debate even started, to the curious and hugely shocking way the financial institutions were essentially given a pass.

Unfortunately, of all issues it is Syria that has mobilized public opinion across party lines and sadly created agreement between people who hate you..and people who hate war.

It is sir, a mess.

Signed a loving but disheartened supporter.
