In honor of Grant Wood - current image of a heterosexual marriage ….

a marriage absolutely made in hell

Perseverance, hard work, and talent based on HOPE = Veteran housing rehab in NC

I read about this in my local paper, and just had to take a short drive to see it myself.

Whole Man Ministries of N.C. — a grassroots, nonprofit charitable organization — is rehabbing duplex buildings that it bought in eastern Winston-Salem. The buildings will be converted to single-family dwellings, offering three bedrooms and two baths. The city is assisting by providing 15-year term loans totaling $201,028 with a zero percent interest rate for two units.








98 159 more signatures needed to fulfil Bill Maher's 60th birthday wish

After his winter hiatus tonight, 5 days before his 60th birthday, Bill Maher resumed his show "Real time" tonight.

It was a show that made me laugh a whole lot, with great guests and lively and valuable discussion and opinions, the only giveaway here is that he had on the 43rd President of the US, the winner of an Oscar, an Emmy and a Nobel Prize as his interview guest:
Senator Al Gore.

It was wonderful to be in Al Gore's "presence" again, after a long time missing him and mourning his supposed loss.

Now here is the thing about the request. Bill said in all the years since his show "Politically incorrect" started in I think he said 1993 he has never asked his audience to help him with anything. Not when he had personal problems, when his mother died, when he had bad break-ups, or when he kept wondering why Stedman Graham won't marry him.
But for this birthday, when he says the only good thing about turning 60 is that you are on the young end of being old, he is asking us to go to

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/ask-president-obama-appear-hbos-real-time-bill-maher

and get the 100 000 signatures needed in one month's time to get President Obama to answer his long standing invitation to come to his show. In his inimitable way he collaged together 2 special segments of clips / one from all the times he has praised Obama (and never did he mention the million he gave as a campaign donation) / and one of all the other shows Obama has graced with his presence which really is just about everybody except, as Bill says: Fox and Friends and himself. In essence, Maher said, he deserves to be in that lineup, and wants all of us to help him get the attention of the White House which is guaranteed by the 100 000 signatures on the website's "We the people / petitions".

I realize I may get a bit of flaming by those who don't like Bill you have the other option to just ignore me.
But I signed it, and hope those of you who have been fans of his decide to help him in this one request he has of us, his audience, in return for the work he has put in to be there for us.

Speaker Ryan has a teeny tiny ever so sad smile glued on with superglue

and at this point has not found it possible to applaud even so much as to have itchy palms. The only thing that seems in perfect order with his appearance and demeanor is the absolutely most perfect widow's peak anyone had the good fortune to sport.

I think I would even prefer Boehner to this strange automaton sitting there - and I believe he has a drinking game going for if he ever applauds the person noticing has to drink a whole bottle in one gulp.
I'm astounded, this is the most blatant example of how not to co-govern I have seen.
I'm disgusted as well.

Quoting Andy Borowitz: "Obama Celebrates Last Time He Has to Talk to These Bastards"





WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Looking ahead to his final State of the Union address, Barack Obama told NBC’s Matt Lauer that he was “celebrating, just celebrating the last time I ever have to talk to these bastards.”

“I’ll be going over some of the accomplishments of the past seven years and outlining some of the challenges for our nation that remain ahead,” the President said, in an interview taped for NBC’s “Today” show. “But inside, I’ll be like, ‘Good Lord, I never have to so much as look at these horrible people again.’ ”

Asked which member of Congress he would most enjoy never looking at again, Obama responded, “That’s tough. It’s a toss-up between Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell. But the beautiful thing is, I don’t have to choose, Matt. After tonight, I don’t have to look at either of them.”
When Lauer reminded Obama that he might still have to engage in face-to-face conversations with McConnell during his final year as President, Obama visibly shuddered. “God, let’s hope not,” he said.

Over all, the President suggested that his ambitions for his final State of the Union were modest at best. “Just to be able to look out at that sea of bastards for the last time ever—well, it doesn’t get sweeter than that,” he said.

A memory about our President - frustration and pain about the slaughtered children

President Obama has a wet face of tears

as he is being strong on the horrors of gun violence, and I am sitting and crying with him.
He is in the throes of the last year of his presidency. And we were and still are so blessed to have him.
I laud his courage and the beauty of it, and am so damn glad he is doing something about the horrible gun problem we have in this country.
