    Great to see you back Chipsticks! We missed you! Fortunately you left us in good hands. LovelyPlains, Utaustinliberal, Liberal Librarian and Amk took good care of us. I am sure you are proud of them and the wonderful job they did while you were away. Any way, I hope you got some time to rest and re-charge. I know what you do is a labor of love, but it’s also quite demanding.

      Hellooooooo Nathkatun7, thank you for the welcome home! The crew were outstanding, which means I’m going to try and bully them in to posting more – they don’t know what they started!!

      Not to diss the young creative OFA workers (they’re in a class all by themselves), but the main ingredient in that special sauce was Barack Obama.

      My oldest daughter posted a Facebook comment on this recruiting article today. She has gone through her undergrad, law school and grad school on full academic scholarships. She commented that better recruiting needs to be done on behalf of the colleges and universities. She also mentioned the need for some students to help out their families and live closer to home for work opportunities. I know she is talking from firsthand experience as she did attend an East Coast university while being from Alaska. Flights home were expensive so she did not make it home much while in college and worked while she attended school. Her Dad unexpectedly died the January prior to starting college and she had to take the best financial choice available. She was constantly asked why she had not gone to Harvard while working at a top DC law firm.

      • March 18, 2013 at 7:47 pm

        The geographical, financial restraints……..not to mention many underprivileged kids have never been on an airplane are only a few of the barriers. Sorry for you families loss as well. I’m sure you kids will carry your families legacy far into the future.

            No, it wasn’t me (not that creative). Can’t remember if it was LadyT or LadyHawke, or ….. I just knew I liked it because it was fitting.

              March 18, 2013 at 7:41 pm

              VC, I stand corrected! My apology, and thanks, to the person who came up with that sweet term! All I remember is reading you comments using that term. And, knowing how creative you are, I assumed that it was you who came up with it.

  21. March 18, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    I must say at this point, it’s about PBO and how he just has to wear those shades, like that, in those photos up top….. Ladies? :whoa:

    This is the biggest bunch of bs garbage I have ever heard—–from “deeply religious” Mark Burnett—-of The Bible fame. He said that there is a real devil on earth and that darn devil created a “false likeness” of President Obama and their TV devil. Weak, weak, weak. He said the devil has stirred the pot and created this controversy because the devil met Jesus last night, and the devil is trying to distract from the Jesus appearance. Oh brother. Are these kind of people even for real? Demented.

      I wonder if this is about the picture of the devil that is in some show on the history channel that has been showed on both Rev. Al and Chris Matthew’s shows. I know the station is denying any likeness and both hosts act like they do not see the similarity. I definitely see the likeness and wonder if the artist is affiliated with the GOP. I am an artist and painted 2 different paintings of Obama for the postcards for America election campaign in 2008. When you draw or paint you observe details in faces carefully and the eyes, nose, mouth and ears are the same as PBO’s. Those denying it are for political reasons or are not observant. Do not misinterpret that I am saying that PBO is the devil. He is not, but I want to know who owns the History Channel and who the artist is?

        I agree with you Obama Grandmama. See Bobfr’s tweet below – and you will find the answer to the first part of your question. Now we need to find out who is the makeup artist.

Them darn MacBooks are way more expensive than PCs. Since I’m gonna pay all that darn money for it, I might as well get a good one with all the bells and whistles…

      Why isn’t this called what it actually is, the tyranny of the minority in the Senate? Calling on Ted Cruz, and all the right winger hypocrites who are always mouthing off about the Constitution: Exactly which part of the Constitution empowers a single Senator to put a hold on people nominated by the President to help run the Executive branch of the government? How can we call this a democracy when a single Senator can put a hold on nominees, thus depriving the majority of the Senators from exercising their duty to cast a vote for or against Presidential nominees?

    Update from the hospital.

    Missus came through the surgery fine. She’s now in the room, groggy and in pain. But, barring complications she’ll be home tomorrow.

    Thank you all for all your good thoughts.

    • March 18, 2013 at 7:09 pm

      Wonderful new LL, send my & TOD’s best wishes….hopefully the sleepless nights are a thing of the past and you both can move on to a wonderful, happy, fruitful life.

      That’s wonderful news, LL! Wishing her a speedy recovery! I hope you will be able to take some time off from work to be with her as she recovers, and may be also to rest a bit. From experience, I know how hard it is taking care of family members after surgery. All the best to you and your family.

      Hey, prettyfoot58, thanks for sharing Greg Sargent’s spot-on tweet. RNC thinks Latinos/Hispanics and African Americans are idiots. The GOP’s outreach to the Latino and African American communities is all centered on PR. The GOP has no intention of changing their hateful right wing policies.

        i do not trust the GOP…if you want to see how they govern…just look at the states that are GOP controlled….this is who they are….and no amount of repackaging will change that…and i would not give them a chance to prove otherwise…

        Ask the folks of WI…ask the folks in MInnesota….with the bait and switch milarky

        nawwwwww…nothing could get me to vote for a Republican,,,

          I agree with you Prettyfoot! You can add: Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia, Arizona, Florida and Pennsylvania, to a list of states taken over by the GOP. People in those states are being traumatized by laws enacted by GOP dominated state governments.

      I posted above I was suspicious that the artist of the devil was a GOP and wondered who owned the station? After painting 2 portraits of Obama in 2008 for the Postcards for America campaign I saw the likeness immediately. Portrait artists spend lots of time observing facial details and there is no question to me that the artist purposely drew the devil to look like an older Obama. Now that I know that The History Channel is owned by Murdock I can no longer count on it as a factual source of information.

    The more I get to know about the despicable GOP and the industries that they promote and support, the worse it gets:

    “In the fall of 2007, Peabody Energy Corp. (BTU), the coal-mining giant, spun off all its unionized mines into a new company, Patriot Coal Corp. (PCXCQ) In the process, it got rid of the promises it had made over generations to coal miners and their families.”

    It drives me nuts that corporations (are people my friend, according to R-money) that receive oodles in corporate welfare are allowed to breaks contracts with its workers when they’re most in need.

    • 122 99ts
      March 18, 2013 at 8:09 pm

      But do the miners keep voting for the GOP – because we don’t want no clean fuel – our state depends on coal – or is that just the message of the mine owners?
