      WTF….Doggone it!

    • February 22, 2013 at 6:20 pm

      Such a weird ‘feature’, and the captions on the photos are ridiculously offensive to Muslims. Bizarre. Thanks Dotster.

        This Salon article is offensive on its face. Nobody has to be a “secret Muslim”. This implies there’s something wrong with being Muslim, when being Muslim is just being another member of one of the world’s religions – a billion members strong. We don’t see anyone saying people are secret Catholics, secret Evangelicals, secret Buddhists, etc. The myth that has been cooked up by those who love to hate is that a billion people who follow a pretty peaceful religion are all terrorists! There are probably less dangerous people in the Muslim faith than the number of Catholic priests who abused small children, or even less than those who historically massacred millions in the name of God. I can only imagine how Muslim Americans feel when they see this kind of stuff being propagated by so-called liberal blogs like Salon.

          Exactly! I’m with you theo. It’s offensive. If they wanted to be pithy and cute, why not just say “Is Bo really a secret agent?” Without the headline, that’s the theme that captions seem to suggest. Wow, some editor seriously dropped the ball on this one.

          Thank you very much, Theo, for this comment! Really enough is enough!

          • February 23, 2013 at 12:10 am

            I really thought they were playing off the whole ‘secrit muslim’ conspiracy theories of the right. I’ve seen lots of posts referring sarcastically to “sekrit muslims” (bad spelling intentional) on lots of liberal posts. I’ve never seen people react as if it was offensive. I see what you’re saying but it’s not as if the Salon article is saying that being Muslim is something to be secret about – they’re making fun of people who do.

      I’m sorry, I’m not retweeting that. I know, tweets don’t mean you endorse, but I want that malarkey silenced. No offense dotster. I know you are keeping us informed.

        Salon was reaching on that one. But, I noticed that every local newsanchor who went to interview the president this week had his/her picture taken with Bo! He is definitely TOP DOG with everyone. And the smiles when with Bo, were huge! That dog just makes people smile and feel good.

          I know. He is so cute and photogenic. He must love people and their attention. I was just posting that I didn’t notice Bo in tweet. I just saw it as Obama. Assumed the worse.

        February 22, 2013 at 6:33 pm

        It did bring a smile to my face and I must admit, I didn’t see Bo in the tweet, just Obama. 😳

          Hello there, Dudette! A happy Friday evening to you. 😆 I must say I would be inclined to agree with your sentiment if only you change the analogy. The fear of the tide taking me where it will is precisely the reason you never get me close to any body of water that is not surrounded by 4 very visible, and easily touchable, walls.

    OK Jay Carney just absolutely destroyed Wolf Blitzer…. I mean Wolfie got in about 10 words in a 8 minute video. Jay was filibustering him the whole time. I bet CNN wont post the video, but TOD we need some enterprising sleuth to dig it up. I’ll do my part.

      I do have a little problem with the cartoon. The sombrero (with tassels no less) implies that the “problem” of immigration is all about Mexico and it’s not. There are tens of thousands of paperless immigrants from Ireland & the UK. Plenty from other countries in the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Latin America as a whole. When the RW talks about “illegals” they ALWAYS mean Mexicans.

      Good Evening Chips and my TOD Family. I hope everyone is having a lovely Friday. Let us continue to do whatever we can to have POB’s back and enjoy this second term. Remember to stay focus and try to always find some gem of joy, loving words about our president, and be reminded that the spirits out there are not ones that must keep us down, but raise our goodness within our spirits to keep HOPE alive and well to move FORWARD with POB and the Americans who will walk this journey with us. Do Not Allow anyone to steal our joy that we find in our wonderful president and First Family.

      Walk in joy.
      Walk in gratefulness.
      Walk in richness of doing good for others.
      Walk in pure sweetness within your heart.
      Walk in peacefulness.
      Walk in believing in President Barack Obama and his wisdom to get his agenda done with our help.
      Walk in a love that brings your a sweet and loving spirit even when we are being pissed off.
      Walk in truth.

          (((((( Chips, you are the most precious gem in our TOD Family.)))))) You shine in our lives each and everyday with the courage to move with grace and fortitude that represents our president. You also have chosen to bring us all together to give our unvarnish support in the most positive manner to POB and each other. We dig in the mines of this daily journey and bring to this beautiful haven so many wonderful and worthy gems of love, brilliance of minds, and hearts filled with that compassion that POB brings out of each of us daily.

          We discover here with you and with POB more knowledge that will enable each of us to rise and shine like valuable gems. Thus we are able to shine, glow, and make our goals mesh with his intense ability to move our country ahead for generations to come for the betterment of their futures through his efforts daily.

          We move with our most glowing and precious gems, our Ms. Chips and our formidable leader, President Barack Obama to make all Americans who want to move us to be valuable citizens to the masses for our beautiful country. Thanks for All that you do, Chips. (((((Lots of love back to you as well)))))))HZ

        What a smile both of them brought to all of us while uncle Ted was still physically with us. Everytime I see Bo; I think of Mrs. Kennedy and Sen. Kennedy. They would be so proud of their beautiful gift to the First Family. Beautiful spirits all coming together. RIP, our beloved Lion of the Senate. We do miss you, Senator.HZ

      I am happy Sen. Warren paid tribute to Senator Kennedy on his 81st birthday. In my opinion, Senator Edward (Teddy) M. Kennedy will go down as one of the greatest Senators in U.S. history. Massachusetts has produced great Senators (for example, Daniel Webster and Charles Sumner), so Teddy Kennedy is in a great company. I have very high hopes that Sen. Elizabeth Warren will carry on the tradition of Sen. Charles Sumner and Sen. Teddy Kennedy in fighting on behalf of the oppressed.

      February seems to be one of the months that so many people who accomplished great deeds were born in. And the state of Massachusetts has produced some of the most passionate fighters for freedom and equality. Tomorrow, Feb. 23rd, is the 145 birthday of the Great African American Scholar, W. E. B. DuBois, another son of Massachusetts, who had a tremendous influence on American scholarship and on the world wide struggle for freedom, peace and human dignity. In many ways, DuBois was one the pioneers of the modern Civil Rights Movement. He, along with others that we must celebrate during Black History Month, laid the foundation for the next generations that produced leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King. This year (April 18) DuBois’ Classical book (a collection of essays) “The Souls of Black Folks” will be 110 years. I first read “The Souls of Black Folks” in 1967, my sophomore year in college, and it truly opened my eyes about the history and complexity of race/racism in America.

      I hope tomorrow the people of Massachusetts (his birthplace), and the people throughout the U.S., will also pay tribute to another giant who dedicated his life to the struggle for freedom, peace and human dignity. Unlike some of our current successful AA like Dr. Carson, who believe that their success came primarily as a result of their individual efforts, Dr. DuBois always stressed the importance of “WE” and not the “I” in the struggle to improve the lives of all people, and especially people of African descent. He did that, despite his accomplishment as the first AA to earn a PhD from Harvard.

    Alright. The Oscars are this Sunday. I always root for Denzel and since he is nominated (but he ain’t got a chance of winning, that’s gonna go to Daniel Day Lewis for playing Abe Lincoln), I’m gonna continue to root for him. So anyway, I haven’t seen any of the movies nominated for best picture or any of the movies that all the lead actor/actresses and supporting actor/actresses are in. Anybody see any of the movies nominated either for picture or acting? I kinda want to see Silver Lining Playbook. Chris Tucker is also in this movie:

    What I like about the picture with my First Lady Michelle Obama and Ms Roberts is that she really shouldn’t be hugging anyone because her immune system is still so fragile but she wen ahead and embraced Mrs. Obama. I love that.
