Just a little reminder, anonymous posts are no longer accepted on the blog – hey, posting anonymously doesn’t make you a bad person, it’s just that most of the attacks on regulars here recently have come from anonymous posts, so enough of that.

Please sign in and stick with the same name you’ve always used here (unlike our most recent troll who used about 10 different names), just so everyone knows who’s talking to them.

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sometimes I forget to log in so it posts as anonymous, or the cache was cleared on my computer or something. Then I don’t want to log in and re-post what I said because it would than be redundant once out approve the “anonymous”. So is the new policy that anonymous will not be eventually posted and thus just log in and re-post?

      You know Sue, I’m still waiting for that email – but I’ll forgive him, I suppose he’s kind of busy at the moment. ๐Ÿ˜•

    thanks chips! i keep thinking i really need to come up with a more creative name other than just plain old “m.” it was actually by mistake that it came to be that in the first place and then once i started to use it i just decided to not mess with it. someday i will change it though when i figure out the name i want to be! =)

    so glad you are weeding out the trolls!

    Oh snap! Chips why’d do you have to call me out like that? I thought we were cool and super tight buddies. Is it because I threatened to send Christine O’Donnell to read you a goodnight witches story? Or sing a witches lullaby for you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Heads up for those who didn’t catch the first airing of the History Channel’s “Targeting Bin Laden.” It’s being re-aired right now. I’m watching it again because it was just that friggin good. President Obama has balls of steel and his NS team is top-notch!

      Hi UT. I also watched it again. What a President and great team alongside him who are doing a great job.. He is a very strong President indeed. I see a lot of the toughness that his professors and very close friends speak of in several books that I’ve read. Now reading another excellent one about his father. We are very blessed to have this great man as our President of the United States. Good nite TOD family and our wonderful Chips.HZ

        I wonder if that’s actually the President’s desk, prettyfoot58? Most of the pics I’ve seen of him at his desk usually display a less cluttered look (though I think I read somewhere that he can be a clutter bug himself sometimes). ๐Ÿ™‚ It seems to me that in this photo he probably just plopped down at someone else’s desk to work on or edit one of his speeches. The desk seems a bit small, and the room seems less formal than what I would expect of a work area for the President of the United States. Then again, I could be wrong. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          That is the outer oval office desk. It belongs to his personal secretary (used to be Katie Johnson, I don’t know who it is now since she left to go to law school).

            Thanks, collegekay. I figured it wasn’t the President’s desk. Although he looks “good” sitting there–for that matter, he looks good sitting anywhere– ๐Ÿ˜‰ the desk and workspace don’t seem quite suited for his natural suaveness, swagger, and savvy. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    [I’m guessing everyone received this from the campaign, but just in case … ]

    Dear Jacqueline,

    Here’s something you and I weren’t supposed to find out:

    At a private function at a Colorado resort, oil billionaire Charles Koch stood in front of hundreds of conservative millionaires and said the 2012 election will be, in the words of Saddam Hussein — yes, he decided to quote Saddam Hussein — “the mother of all wars.”

    He then read through a list of 32 contributors who gave more than a million dollars each to bankroll the network of corporate special-interest groups that aim to tear down President Obama.

    If that offends you, it absolutely should. But it should also motivate you, because you are the only thing that can stop them.

    Can you make a donation of $15 or more right now?

    I’d rather not spend time talking about this kind of gutter politics, but one simple fact makes it impossible to brush aside: special-interest groups like Karl Rove’s American Crossroads Super PAC have already pledged to pour nearly $200 million into attacking the President in the coming months — and more shadowy groups file paperwork and start running ads every week.

    Right now, the President is focused on creating jobs and improving the lives of middle-class families. And this campaign will keep doing what we’ve been doing from the very beginning: growing a truly grassroots organization that’s doing politics a different way, and encouraging as many people as possible to take ownership of this campaign as early as possible. It has to start with you.

    The Koch brothers and the front groups they fund have decided on the tone they want the election to take in the coming months — and we should expect these kinds of smears to only get worse.

    But we still have a say about the kind of race we want to run and the kind of political climate we want to create. Take a stand now to support it.

    Donate $15 or more today:

    Karl Rove mentioned Blackwaterdog in his attack on Daily Kos. Thank you for having her back while she recharges her batteries,Chipsticks! With all this negativity out there, we all need to focus on positive vibes!

    I remember watching a special on the White House a few years ago. They have a whole section in the lower level that does the flower arranging for everywhere……….all the rooms and offices. It’s one of the things I really like about this photo.

    I also like to know that the President is a touch typist and not one of those two-finger people. At some point, he took the trouble to learn how…….unlike many execs who use computers.

    Thanks for weeding out the trolls, Ms Chips…. I was not liking them! I don’t post much at all, but read everything you send out to us, you are the best! XX
