Iconic - Beautiful Post Offices going on the auction block

Many buildings currently owned by the Postal Service are for sale, or are being considered for sale. Preservation groups say some of the buildings are architecturally significant and that their design elements and historic features should be protected.

This is what the right wing attempt to privatize our postal system is doing. These are historic structures and have been a significant fixture in these communities.

Did Lindsey Graham just blink?

GOP's Graham on Obama dinner: 'The election is over'
By Kasie Hunt and Mike Viqueira, NBC News

Lindsey Graham took the lead on the guest list. Barack Obama extended the invitations. And on Wednesday night, after weeks of gridlock, a dozen Republican senators are dining out with the president.

"We need to stop the campaign. The election is over," Graham said Wednesday. "If we never talk to each other, I know exactly what's going to happen, this country is going to fail."

So far, the Republicans who've been invited are giving Obama the benefit of the doubt -- even if they don't want to elaborate.

"How do you say no to the president of the United States who would like to have dinner with some of your colleagues? You don't," Graham said.


So does this mean they are no longer going to say no to Obama or are they just looking for a free meal?

It makes you wonder why do they bother...

When you put in perspective, all the value of the corporate loopholes vs. those that actually help people who need help, it makes you wonder why are they going after this little small amount when there are so much bigger fish to catch.

Time like these...

We all reach that point where we will no longer be able to call a parent or that they will call you on your birthday. This is for everyone who knows that pain.

Boehner tells Obama 'You got your tax increase'

Boehner is trying to claim the expiration of the bu$h tax cuts and the Social Security Tax Holiday as a tax increase.

The nation’s capital was enveloped in a familiar kind of gridlock late Monday, as Republicans again demanded that President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats act first to put off $85 billion in automatic cuts slated to take effect on Friday.

“The president says we have to have another tax increase to avoid the sequester,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said of the hefty and indiscriminate spending cuts. “Well, Mr. President, you got your tax increase. It's time to cut spending.”

How to modify an NRA bumper sticker

I pulled in to the drive at my fathers house. Sitting in the drive was this huge pick up truck and on the back was 2 bumper stickers, Romney/Ryan and an NRA sticker similar to this one:

Get some white-out and paint it over the work DEFEAT.

The sticker now reads:

There is just a white bar between the two. Just don't get caught by the vehicle owner, they are NRA members after all and will shoot to kill!

At the urging of a couple of posters, I do amend my idea here. Don't commit a crime. Maybe the better thing to do, is get some stickers and modify them and then use them yourself.

Sorry If I offended anyone!!!

The Butler didi IT!

Pope's brother: Pontiff was troubled by butler's revelations

Pope Benedict XVI was troubled by "some great challenges" during his time in office -- including allegations of corruption within the church that were illegally exposed by his former butler and his relationship with a controversial Catholic brotherhood -- the pontiff’s brother said Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters in Germany, Georg Ratzinger said the pope was “doing relatively well” and his announcement Monday that he was going to stand down had not had an effect on his health.

On Monday, Benedict, 85, explained his resignation, saying that the papacy required “strength of mind and body” and his had deteriorated in recent months. On Tuesday, the Vatican acknowledged for the first time that the pope has had a pacemaker for years and that its battery was replaced a few months ago in secret, Reuters reported.
