Cool Halloween Googles !

Go to Google...click on the small image top left corner of the search box.
It will open an animated Google.
Then, click on the animated Google
it will open to the Google Search page and the small image will be there again.
Click on it and it opens to a 2nd animated Google.
Do all the steps one more time, there is a 3rd animated Google Halloween.

Seems to be only 3...cute, tho.

Very Cool pics: Body maps show where we feel emotions.

The resulting map shows that each type of emotion activates a network of specific areas of the body, distinct from those activated by other types of emotions.
Every type of emotion carries a unique energy and a different frequency of vibrations in the body. All cells, membranes, tissues, glands, organs, vibrate in precise way in us and they are all influenced by our emotions.

Some of us knew this, right?
What do you think?

We get to vote on Alabama State's Rights, looks like.

This one, subtitled " Ain't gonna let no Yankee Gov. tell us who can marry"

PROPOSED STATEWIDE AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE (1)
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to prohibit the State of Alabama from giving full faith and credit to
public acts, records, or judicial proceedings of another state that violate the public policy of the State of Alabama and to prohibit the
the application of foreign law in violation of rights guaranteed natural citizens by the United States and Alabama Constitutions, and the
statutes, laws, and public policy thereof, but without application to business entities.


This one is a "My Cold Dead Hands" amendment:
PROPOSED STATEWIDE AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE (3)
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that every citizen has a fundamental right to bear arms
and that any restriction on this right would be subject to strict scrutiny; and to provide that no international treaty or law shall prohibit,
limit, or otherwise interfere with a citizen's fundamental right to bear arms.


And in my county elections only TWO offices have more than ONE candidate...even a few Dems are running unopposed.

Central Ala. VA director James Talton removed

James Talton has officially been removed as director of the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Talton was placed on paid administrative leave during an investigation of the administrative and clinical practices of CAVHCS in August. Last week, federal officials recommended Talton be fired for neglect of duty.

Talton was removed from "federal service," a news release said. A VA spokeswoman last week said Talton had responded to the request for removal, but said she couldn't say what his response was for privacy reasons

The Montgomery Advertiser also obtained police reports, investigations, emails and court records that documented repeated unethical and criminal behavior by CAVHCS staff members, including one situation where an employee took a patient in the drug treatment program to a crack house.

Delicious read....
The Republican candidate turns out to be a stalker, and accused of plagerizing her proposed health care plan.
Her campaign management looks to be borderline incompetent," he said.

Man jumps WH fence, arrested for assaulting the Secret Service police dogs.

WASHINGTON (AP) The 23-year-old Maryland man who climbed over the White House fence Wednesday night has been charged with felonies for assaulting two police dogs and making threats, the Secret Service said Thursday.

Dominic Adesanya of Bel Air, Maryland, is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service for previous outstanding warrants, Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said. Adesanya has also been charged with four misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and unlawful entry.


Snip:

Video of the incident recorded by TV news cameras shows a man in white shorts on the lawn just inside the fence.
The man lifts his shirt as if to show that he is unarmed, then is seen kicking and punching the two Secret Service dogs.

Leary said the two dogs, named Hurricane and Jordan, were taken to a veterinarian and treated for minor bruising. Both dogs were cleared to return to duty.

So what kind of dogs is the SS using?

The article also indicates the man has mental issues.

Medicare premiums and costs for 2015 announced.

Too funny.....ask Google "how tall is Colbert"

https://www.google.com/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=how+old+is+colbert&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#channel=fs&q=how+tall+is+stephen+colbert

and look on the answer page for what they have Jon Stewart's height.

All this resulted from Colbert taking on Google for a mistake in his height.
