What a great day for democrats!

Today's Google Doodle honors Ida Lewis, "The Bravest Woman in America"



There are no definitive records of Ida’s rescues and she was too modest to recount them herself, though some were documented in local newspapers and at least one garnered national attention; in February of 1881 she ventured into the bitter winter winds to rescue two soldiers who had fallen through the ice while traveling on foot. This act of bravery caught the attention of President Grant who shortly thereafter awarded her the prestigious Gold Lifesaving Medal. Eleven years after her death, the Rhode Island legislature voted to rename her former home, Lime Rock Lighthouse, as Ida Lewis Lighthouse in her honor.

Just heard it on Stephanie Miller. So sad.



I remember listening to him on some little local radio station in the early 1990s. He had a song about Bill Clinton is the greatest president--- Does anyone remember that?

I also remember his announcing when Oksana Baiul won the gold medal at the Olympics, beating out Nancy Kerrigan.

This is the only non-Russian source I found so far.

Here is a link to Reuters, but they are just reprinting the Russian sources. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-un-churkin-idUSKBN15Z1UU?feedTypeRSS&feedNametopNews&utm_sourcetwitter&utm_mediumSocial

Tim Murphy town hall: 2/21 ---CANCELLED!

Tim Murphy will be at Duquesne University in the Union Ballroom 230p - 330 Tuesday 2/21, his topic is Healthcare.

(Found on FB)

UPDATE: http://www.pghcitypaper.com/PolitiCrap/archives/2017/02/21/us-rep-tim-murphy-cancels-pittsburgh-event-to-dodge-his-constituents

People are talking about it.

Including Sen. Al Franken and an unnamed republican member of Congress.

I just don't know what we can do about it. The 25th amendment is a very high hurdle and impeachment isn't going to happen under this republican-controlled Congress.

I understand.... I went from not being able to stomach the sight of him during the campaign to waking up every morning and checking the news to see what he has done crazy overnight. I used to have the TV off all day.... not anymore. Afraid to miss something now.

I have a republican senator and congressman who pay no attention to their constituents. Our democratic senator is wonderful (Bob Casey) but democrats just don't have the numbers (yet). I have made countless (unanswered) calls, sent emails and tweets, and sent about a dozen postcards. I really feel like I'm just spinning my wheels.

He has been there a freakin' month already.... I hope people don't start to lose interest in protesting and mobilizing.

Some useful fact-checking sites (from Twitter):

Oh.My.God.

He asked April Ryan if the Congressional Black Conference are friends of hers? And could she set up a meeting with them.

Guess he thinks all African-American people know each other.

He's cranking up for war.

Building up the military.
Attacking Iran sanctions. Worst deal he's ever seen.
Claiming that Isis has spread. (Hasn't it lost territory under Obama?)

We need some fact-checking here!
