    Does being re-elected make our beloved President seem more relaxed and confident let alone more handsome? not saying that he wasn’t these things before but now even moreso?

    Jan Brewer rejects the Health exchanges. They are making it very difficult on HJS to set up all these different exchanges for different States. HHS has 1 billion dollars to figure it all out, and in 1 year time!

    I don’t know if this has already been discussed, but I need to post it…. Why was the female the only person arrested?

    The protesters, who had red ribbons painted on their bodies, appear to have been protesting potential budget cuts to AIDS programs.

    It’s unclear why the naked women were arrested, but the naked man in the picture was not.

    An aide to Boehner said there would be no official comment about the incident, but confirmed there were seven individuals from the group ACT Up who came into the office and proceeded to remove their clothing. That is when staffers to Boehner’s office notified Capitol Police, who came and handled the situation from there.

    Let’s not all back away from responsibility at the same time! Walmart and Disney say they did not have contracts here for at least 12 months…


    DHAKA, BANGLADESH Amid the ash, broken glass and melted sewing machines at what is left of the Tazreen Fashions Ltd. factory, there are piles of blue, red and off-white children’s shorts bearing Walmart’s Faded Glory brand. Shorts from hip-hop star Sean Combs’ ENYCE label lay on the floor and are stacked in cartons.

    An Associated Press reporter searching the factory Wednesday found these and other clothes, including sweaters from the French company Teddy Smith, among the equipment charred in the fire that killed 112 workers Saturday. He also found entries in account books indicating that the factory took orders to produce clothes for Disney, Sears and other Western brands.

    Garments and documents left behind in the factory show it was used by a host of major American and European retailers, though at least one of them β€” Walmart β€” had been aware of safety problems. Walmart blames a supplier for using Tazreen Fashions without its knowledge.

    Bill Gates met God, and God said, “Well, Bill, I’m really confused on this one. I’m not sure whether to send you to Heaven or to Hell. After all, you enormously helped society by putting a computer in almost every home in the world, and yet you created that ghastly Windows. I’m going to do something I’ve never done before. I’m going to let you decide where you want to go.”

    Bill Gates said, “What’s the difference between the two?”

    God said, “It might help you decide if you took a peek at both places. Shall we look at Hell first?”

    Gates was amazed. He saw a clean, white sandy beach with clear waters. There were thousands of beautiful men and women running around, playing in the water, laughing and frolicking about. The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect. “This is great!” said Bill. “If this is Hell, I can’t wait to see Heaven.”

    God said, “Let’s go!” and off they went to Heaven.

    Gates saw puffy white clouds in a beautiful blue sky, with angels drifting about playing harps and singing. It was nice, but surely not as enticing as Hell. Bill thought for only a brief moment and rendered his decision. “God, I do believe I would prefer to go to Hell.”

    “As you wish,” said God.

    Two weeks later, God decided to check up on the late billionaire to see how things were going. He found Gates shackled to a wall, screaming amidst the hot flames in a dark cave. He was being tortured by demons with pitchforks. “How ya doin’, Bill?” asked God.

    Gates responded with anguish and despair, “This is awful! This is not what I expected at all! What happened to the beach and the beautiful women playing in the water?”

    “Oh, that,” said God. “That was just the screen saver.”

    A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem. While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband, “You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here, in the Holy Land, for $150.” The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.

    The undertaker asked, “Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your wife home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you would spend only $150?”

    The man replied, “Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance.”

    There once was a bear and a rabbit and they hated each other. The bear and rabbit then stumbled upon a magical talking tree. The tree said: “I will grant you 3 wishes a piece if you will stop fighting!”

    So the bear went first. “I wish all the bears in the forest are females.” And all the bears in the forest turned into females.

    The rabbit said: “I wish I had a helmet.” Rabbit gets the helmet and the bear looks at him funny.

    The bear wishes: “I wish all the bears in the country are females.” The wish was granted.

    The rabbit says, “I wish I have a motorcycle.” By this point the bear thinks the rabbit is the stupidest thing he’s ever seen. The rabbit could wish for money and have all the motorcycles in the world.

    The bear says: “I wish all the bears in the world are female.” The wish is granted.

    When it’s the rabbit’s turn to wish, he puts on his helmet, gets on his motorcycle, and says: “I wish that this bear is gay.”

    A man walked into a Florida bar with his alligator and asked the bartender:

    “Do you serve lawyers here?”


    “Good. One beer for me and one lawyer for my alligator.”

    A man is sitting at the bar in his local tavern, furiously imbibing shots of whiskey. His best friend happens to come into the bar and sees him.

    “Lou,” says the shocked friend, “what are you doing? I’ve known you for over fifteen years, and I’ve never seen you take a drink before. What’s going on?”

    Without even taking his eyes off his newly filled shot glass, the man replies, “My wife just ran off with my best friend.”

    He then throws back another shot of whisky in one gulp.

    “But,” says the other man, “I’m your best friend!”

    The man turns to his friend, looks at him through bloodshot eyes, smiles, and then says,

    “Not anymore! … He is!”

    And I am outta here.

    Ok, just one more and I am truly outta here.

    A very shy guy goes into a nightclub and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering up his courage, he finally goes over to her and asks, tentatively, “Um, would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?”

    She responds by yelling, at the top of her lungs, “No, I won’t sleep with you tonight!” Everyone in the bar is now staring at them. Naturally, the guy is completely embarrassed and he slinks back to his table.

    After a few minutes, the woman walks over to him and apologizes. She smiles at him and says, “I’m sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I’m a graduate student in psychology and I’m studying how people respond to embarrassing situations.”

    To which he responds, at the top of his lungs, “Two-hundred dollars? What do you mean $200?!

    A traveling croc wrangler is in a bar with his HUGE trained crocodile doing his act. He puts the croc through it’s paces, some tricks…you know regular croc tricks! Then the finale! The wrangler opens up the croc’s maw and puts his hand inside! Then his Arm!! Then a LEG!!!! THEN HIS WHOLE HEAD!!! Then…………. [wait for it]………………..THEN he pulls his pants down, whips out his stuff and puts THAT in the crocs jaws!!!! The croc remains passive. With his privates in the crocs jaws he starts slapping the croc HARD on top of the head! SLAP! SLAP! SLAP SLAP SLAP!!! The croc never bites. The wrangler withdraws, pulls up his pants and with flair says: So!! Anyone from the audience that would like to try THAT!!? $100 to anyone that will do it!!!! Silence. Then finally…from the back of the room, a little whithered old lady stands up and says: “I’ll do it, if you promise not to hit me on the head.”

        I put on some cocoa butter on the long legs today. Just felt like having a shine on for my president. Got to always look very nice for our POTUS. Always. FLOTUS looked so beautiful and elegant in that lovely outfit as well. HZ

    Morning on the night post TODobots! I’m looking in with one eye and keeping another on my watch as I have to go in to work today.

    Have a good Thursday, you all, and try to keep all of today’s ‘excitement’ (there’s sure to be some) under wraps until I return.

    Hey Amk! I went to bed thinking of you and woke up the same way. πŸ™„ You’ll be pleased to hear I was reading about varnam and khyal and dhrupad and jhala…and all that stuff. You won’t be so pleased to hear that I haven’t a clue, and know no more now than when I started. I had the unenviable task of editing my offspring’s final essay (due this morning and worth 30%) for a south/north Indian music course – writing essays is NOT his forte! I got it well after midnight (following my editing a friend’s professional resume, a covering letter and a submission that must be submitted today), and had to wake him early so that he could clarify the cloudy areas and complete the incomplete sections. Sections I think he probably left blank when he was falling asleep at his laptop. A tactic, or a strategy? πŸ™„

    Anyways, I’m off TODville to be gainfully employed today, so behave yourself and don’t give the village any lip…except if they start it (highly unlikely)! πŸ˜†

    We re-elected President Obama, we heard onto the Senate, but it is clear now our next move is the House. Because it is also clear if anything is to get done we have to get rid of the crazy ass Republicans. They are the reason the economy is not stronger, or UE is not lower, all they done was obstruct, and I am fed up with their B.S.
