      Hay guys let me give you something else to think about, a third of George Washington professors believe our President should end up on Mount Rushmore. I remember talking about this before and I recall saying POTUS deserve a Mountain all to himself.

      • 22 MightyPamela
        May 28, 2013 at 10:34 pm

        While an enitire mountain to himself might be a bit lonesome for a people person, like PBO, it is a good idea. Certainly, Mt. Rushmore has had my vote since the day he announced his candidacy. Are these professors serious enough to get some energy behind making this happen? Never mind PBO always says his ears are too big for Mt. Rushmore, that can be managed in the design! There are not many ears in the images anyway! πŸ˜‰

    See that?
    Merkel is the one that is holding Europe from doing any stimulus. Her and Cameron are cut cut cut and small government all the way.
    They are awful!

    • 35 jackiegrumbacher
      May 29, 2013 at 7:50 am

      Doesn’t Merkel ever face the electorate? Seems as if she’s been there for a long time without a challenge.

      • May 29, 2013 at 8:20 am

        There are elections this year actually, only our election season is a little more…quiet πŸ™‚ America is quite different there.
        Also, it is very difficult to compare Europe to the US when it comes to stimulus etc. Thing is that Germany has a good economy, whereas some other European countries donΒ΄t. And what Merkel does, as i see it, is tie stimulus to certain programmes of saving money and cutting down with spending. Which i think is perfectly legit, because so far itΒ΄s us that bail out countries like Greece who have had their people retire at 55 and wonder why they go bankrupt. πŸ™‚

        • May 29, 2013 at 8:24 am

          A little point added: MerkelΒ΄s political standpoint overall is a lot closer to the Dems than it is to the Repubs. And quite frankly, if I give part of my tax money to bail out Greece, then i think they need to learn how to use their money a little better. Because this is not just a financial crisis there, this is bad management over quite a while. ItΒ΄s like me refusing to lend mone to someone who i know will blow it. If they reconsider and start making better choices: sure.
          Btw, no offense intended to anyone πŸ™‚

          • 38 jackiegrumbacher
            May 29, 2013 at 9:22 am

            Thanks for the perspective, niliathiel. As a point of interest, does Merkel have any serious competition in the elections?

          • May 29, 2013 at 9:30 am

            That’s a fair point. I think it’s a matter of degrees. Germany does have a good economy but austerity overall has not been a good thing for Europe. Should there be strings attached to those countries asking for money that have mismanaged their economies? Sure but as the President has said on so many occasions it has to be a balanced approach. Cutting severely with no plans for growth is a recipe for trouble.

    One more note, as I wrap it up: while doing the washing up earlier, I saw out the kitchen window a lovely hummingbird, hovering, checking me out, and of course looking for food. It is always exhilarating to see them, and this one was particularly interested in the remaining quince blossoms, some of the comfrey, and what is left of the mock orange. I worry what they will find to eat, and will it be enough… Then I remind myself birds have been on Earth much longer than humans, and will continue to be here long after we are gone. That gives me comfort! Goodnight all! Sweet dreams, Hugs and Healing all around!

    From the previous post, we need a side by side of Christie and PBO just after the hurricane and now. I thought he looked like he had lost a little weight but when I seen him with his jacket off throwing footballs with PBO I don’t think he has lost anything. Wonder if his elastic band has blown off the tube that it was wrapped around. Don’t take offence but I really wonder what the success is on this type of weight loss…

        BREAKING: Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann Says She Will Not Run for Re-Election in 2014

        Just peeking in…couldn’t sleep. Didn’t want everyone to have to listen to this talk, so I found this on DU and posted…I’m assuming this is what she says in the video?

    β€œHeller, Ayotte, Flake slammed for ‘deception’”
    By Steve Benen – Tue May 28, 2013

    Republican Sens. Dean Heller (Nev.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), and Jeff Flake (Ariz.), were among the 45 senators who killed a bipartisan bill on expanded background checks…seem eager to pretend they didn’t kill the proposal.

    Over the weekend, the New York Times editorial board blasted their collective “deception.” Rather than admit that they fearfully follow the dictates of the N.R.A., these senators are instead seeking to fool voters by supporting measures with fancy titles and hollow cores.

    The point is that these three — and only these three — feel compelled to mislead their constituents in a coordinated way, cynically hoping that public ignorance will allow them to get away with their vote. It’s about putting a smoke screen — emphasizing support for “strengthening” background checks through half-measures that won’t pass, instead of “expanding” background checks in real legislation — that confuses voters just enough to let these three senators off the hook.

    The rhetorical games are tiresome and unnecessary.

      She is Not running for president. She did that and failed woefully. She will never run for senate for the 6th dist is the ONLY district that could elect her in MN……it is the most conservative dist in MN. Bachmann Never had a statewide appeal. Most of her Millions raised were vastly by those outside the state of MN.

      It has to be one of 3 things.
      The FBI Probe.
      The Ethic Probe.

      Last πŸ˜† her husband, Marcus, who God speaks directly to……Might have heard the Lord’s message directly from God to him and strictly for Michele Bachmann to finally call it quits? Hmm? 9 days after she’s been running campaign ads? Hmm?
