Healthcare.gov is swamped!

Too much traffic is causing the site to have delays, and in some cases just go down with an error message to try later.

Obamacare is so "unpopular with the American people" that too many people are trying to sign up for it at once.

If I were White House press secretary at a briefing:

"Will the President be talking with Speaker Boehner to come to a compromise on the debt limit?"

"For decades, the United States has had a firm policy of not negotiating with blackmailers, extortionists, or terrorists."

NJ same sex marriages could start as soon as 10/21/13


Same-sex couples in New Jersey will soon be able to marry.

Judge Mary Jacobson of the Mercer County Superior Court ruled Friday that gay couples can marry in the Garden State starting October 21.

Coca-Cola to LGBT: Fuck You.

Translation into plain English: "We still want your money, so we can keep giving it to people who want to kill you and everyone like you."

Emphasis mine.

Just had the pleasure of serving on a jury

on an alert on a pro-gay response.

The post in question: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=3732262

I voted to leave it, stating that the post in question was in no way an attack on the poster it was a reply to, and that far too often bigoted members of DU hold sway on juries when an anti-gay member alerts on anything even remotely pro-gay.

Will share the final results when they arrive. Maybe this time we will win the Russian Roulette of jury selection.

Need name suggestion for a sandwich.

Cheese, pickle, spicy mustard, grilled in a sandwich press.

Sunburned Ploughman or Communist Cubano?

Did using the old voting machines allow deBlasio to win?

This year, New York's Mayoral primary was held on the old lever-style voting machines, instead of the electronic black boxes that had been forced onto voters after the Bush coup of December, 2000.

Would the people who controlled the electronic machines, and who uniformly prefer conservative candidates, have allowed a liberal like deBlasio to actually win? Look at all the buildup the "third way" and conservative media gave their anointed darling, Christine Quinn. If the hackable machines had been in control is there any doubt that we would have heard endless news stories this morning about "the polls were wrong" and Quinn's "stunning come from behind victory?"

deBlasio deserved to win. He deserves to win in November. And hopefully once again using machines that actually count the votes instead of cooking them gave him that opportunity.

Legal Defense Fund for woman arrested for playing the banjo


On the evening of August 30th, Emily Yates, an Iraq war veteran, was just illegally arrested, choked and brutalized by park police at Independence Mall in Philadelphia. She was not engaged in any illegal activity and was not told why she was being attacked. While she was busy playing a song, park rangers accosted her. When she demanded an explanation for their aggression, they pinned her first to a park bench then to the pavement for an extended period before dragging her off to the Philadelphia Federal Detention Center.

Emily, an organizer with Iraq Veterans Against the War, was out in the streets in Philadelphia today with many others protesting the impending war in Syria. She marched peacefully with the protest to Independence Mall and there commenced playing her banjo, as she does all over the country. Now she’s in jail. She has not been allowed any communication with the outside world. We are raising money to pay for both her legal defense and the incidental expenses of her unjust imprisonment.

This is more than just a "wacky news" or "Only in Philadelphia" story. This is about a crackdown on protests. Those who are interested in giving may follow the link above.
