A moment of silence for the GOP.

Here's a chance to not say anything about the GOP's big issues:

Have you noticed the lull?




The National Debt ceiling.

They're down to Gay bashing and abortions.


You'll enjoy this article by former Reader's Digest Editor about Osama Bin Laden.

She calculates Osama cost the US a trillion plus. Doesn't start to measure Bush's boys' killing of hundred's of thousands of Iraqis.

You will especially enjoy the comments. She must really wonder why she even exists.

Don't ask How I ever found this article or why I read it.



Email from Tea Party side of the family:

Irony 1 - "We are told to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics."

BUT on the other hand, "We are also encouraged TO judge ALL Gun Owners by the actions of a few lunatics." ... Now, just HOW is that supposed to work.....??????

Irony 2 - The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47 million people as of the most recent figures available in 2013.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

Thus Ends Today's Lesson On Irony!!!!!

We need more idiots writing for the progressive side, people who can simplify things into a Reagan like Reader's Digest toss-off line. Anyone want to try.

Meanwhile, I'll be in the bathroom throwing up.

Christie, who says he wants the truth out, has nothing to hide says:

Then, when asked how he might respond to a subpoena, Christie quickly dismissed the question by saying, Im not going to speculate on that at this time. A strange way to answer given how many times he previously claimed he would do everything to cooperate.

Why wouldn't he just say he will be happy to testify in the investigation to determine what happened?


I predict he'll be gone by Washington's birthday.

As usual the local news folks are coming up with the news RE; Bridge Jam.

Mother of 4 turns to political retribution with no explanation? Will we be hearing from under the bus where the poor women has found herself?


Lots of links to earlier stories and more about local impact at this link.

I'm really interested in the mechanics of the Bridge Jam.

Has anyone read any reporting on how the Jam was achieved? How did Wildstein's or Baroni's (SP) requests get carried out and without police being notified? Any interviews with Port Authority workers? Is it standard practice to simply close down lanes at one man's request at the PA?

Have there already been hearings about this that I missed?

Thanks for your help.

I've googled a bit, but most of the reports are very general in nature....Wildstein just said do it and it was done? Hard to believe the PA is run that way.

Best guide to the Snowden revelations.

I know there have been lots of posts on DU about this issue, but as interested as I am in it, it wasn't until today, sitting around inside because of the snow storm that I had a chance to find this.


So I thought I'd put up the link so maybe someone else might get up to speed.

Happy New Year. And thanks for all the great links to all the issues everyday.

I'm feeling some relief thanks to Obamacare.

My 27 year old daughter was home for Christmas. I've been after her to get health insurance so that if something happens to her I won't lose my life's savings getting her care. Finally, with Obamacare, she found a policy she could afford, ($130 vs. $200/Mo), and after I explained she would have to pay a tax penalty if she didn't sign up...she did. New York's website...took about 5 minutes.

OMG! Obama's approval rating drops to what it was for the last 3 years!

May never recover because he was able to get poor people health insurance!

May Have to resign and turn presidency over to the Media!

Moving average numbers show he is getting back to the lows of 2010, 2011 and 2012!

Although his approval numbers are better than G. W. Bush's, standard is higher because he's black. Media feels need to point out

Santa and Jesus were white guys. Falling approval numbers shows the truth that black guys just can't hack it in the complexity that is

the world today.

Media has trouble hiding glee at this news coming right at Xmas time!

Here's Pew's take, by the numbers...which actually have improved in December vs. November for Obama.


How's your inflation? #1

Electricity last year in November: 16.5 Cents per KW.

Electricity November 2013: 20.8 Cents per KW.

Inflation = 4.3/16.5 = 26%
