          Oh Df, I noticed that and was wondering if I could correct it for them. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ That’s so funny. It seems you’re like me when incorrect spelling just seems to jump out at you. In my case, especially if I wasn’t the original writer! πŸ˜‰ It’s the very reason I don’t normally borrow library books, because I always find myself wanting to highlight the spelling errors.

        Just another example of the differences between these two men: President Obama is consistent and loyal. Romney is inconsistent and disloyal – panders to whomever he needs to in order to win.

    Whatzup, Whatzup?!

    My name is GoBrooklyn and I am a hoarder. Today I put out 5 clear plastic bags of magazines for the recycling truck. Each bag contained about 10-12 magazines. Last week I threw out 4 bags. I still have more to go. I even take 4-5 mags with me to work for my co-workers or to read on train. Then I chuck ’em or put them in the recycle bin. That’s the only item I hoard though. Kept them on book shelf and some in a corner on the floor. They really had to go…so I could make room for new ones πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Oh man.

    • 75 Dudette
      June 26, 2012 at 8:24 pm

      You might be hoarder-lite, gb! Try having a house full of closets that you either can’t open the doors or you can’t get in ‘cuz they’re so full. I keep the charities that call every other week VERY busy. πŸ™‚

      • June 26, 2012 at 8:28 pm

        My mother used to pack a lot of junk in the garage. Now and again she would pack up some tall barrels and have them shipped to our family and friends in Jamaica. Then she would go to flea markets/garage sales and buy more junk. OY!

          Hoarders don’t get rid of stuff unless they are forced to….my brother is a hoarder and he gets frustrated when you throw out a envelope a bill came in, you can’t re-use it, he writes things on it like prayers. He is in really bad shape and needs professional mental help.

        I knew there was a reason I feel so at home at TOD other than Chips’ cozy environment. You guys’ comments help me feel normal. πŸ˜€ I have serious plans to clean clutter central house next weekend. I occupy myself patiently at TOD while waiting, only I don’t really get why next weekend never arrives. Like you Dudette, I’ve used the charities a few times in the last year, but then came to the conclusion that they don’t give me enough notice so that I can put the stuff together. Calling a week or two ahead is just not enough time to gather the stuff, and a month ahead is too far away.

        She was so great during the first campaign, but she really turned on our President over the last few years. Very disappointing.

        • June 26, 2012 at 8:43 pm

          I don’t think she has gone against him, rather she was targeted by the ‘pubs at the very beginning for supporting PBO early in the primaries. They have thrown all kind of money toward her opponent. It’ll be sad if she loses, cause she is much better than the alternative.

            People in Missouri don’t seem to get that. It surprises me as I thought they’d go D-leaning with PBO in the White House, but he lost that state narrowly. Too many people in MO watch Fox News.

          Actually, they should. We can’t afford senate flipping. Warren, for all the touting, still seems to be struggling in blue MA. And here I thought she would easily smash that poster boy.

        • June 26, 2012 at 8:39 pm

          Don’t be too tough on her. PBO knows wassup and we should cut folks like her some slack. It’s better to have her in office than her opponent.

      So that she can possible try and win her election. She’s up against the teabutts and any Dem in red states going against the teanuts have to distance themselves during the election.

      Great video from the fire fighter Republican. Call me crazy, I think there will be more Republicans just like this one. They will know that President Obama has a core, that this President cares about the middle class, poor, and yes even the rich. Unlike Romney he has no core, he will lie and tell people whatever it is they want to hear. And we know these billionaires and millionaires are going to want something from Mitt Romney for their support. Remember Mitt Romney say we don’t need more teachers, policemen, and fire fighters, these people are middle American. But Mitt doesn’t think so.

    Dear Governor Scott,

    We are the tax payers that pay your salary. WE NEED INFRASTRUCTURE NOW! We have people being flooded out of their homes in NW Florida. We barley had a “wind event” here in Delray Beach which downed power lines all over this small town. I have not been able to email you all day due to NOT having any power. I had to keep my dogs inside all day due to the two explosions behind my house as two power lines were arching, catching fire and landing in my backyard. This is the second time in two months this has happened. New power grid and FUCKING SOLAR POWER FOR THE WHOLE STATE IS THE WAY TO GO! Stop messing with voter laws and get your ass in the chair and get to work!!

    Vulnerable Democrats in tight races β€” like Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill β€” might be downplaying their enthusiasm for President Obama, but a fundraising email sent Monday shows Democratic donors are still excited by the president.

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reports that a fundraising email from Obama raised $580,000, the largest single-day online fundraising haul in DCCC history.


    The DCCC said the message resonated.

    β€œGrassroots Democrats are responding, at President Obama’s urging, to the call for a Democratic majority that will stand up for the middle class and seniors rather than this Republican Majority that protects millionaires, Big Oil and companies that ship jobs overseas,” said Jesse Ferguson, a DCCC spokesperson.

    Excuse my ****ing language, but give me a ****ing break:

    Brenda Fernandez along with other protesters and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans make their views known as they stand outside a President Barack Obama fundraiser at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater on June 26, 2012 in Miami Beach, Florida. The group said that following the White House’s announcement that administrative relief would be granted for young undocumented immigrants, they want to shift attention to the need for executive action on workplace discrimination for LGBT Americans.
