    Seriously, what is the press doing, other than booking GG to spew his hatred and ‘fear’?

    What exactly is Snowden’s work history? Yesterday I read that he had worked for Dell who had a contract with the NSA and that is where he got his clearance. Did he ever work for the CIA, and if so what was his actual job?!?!

    Does anyone do actual journalism anymore?

        Absurdly stupid. Shame on him. Wouldn’t it be refreshing if the loony left, for one single minute, took some responsibility? Yeah, I know PBO does not measure up to Ellison’s purity standards, but he could at least take responsibility for ignoring his own job and not blame the administration for not giving him an engraved invitation.

      He should realize that it was his job to attend whether it was noted that it was important. I have attended several meetings without that type of notice because it was part of my job to attend. What was he thinking when he said that?

      • 61 57andfemale
        June 12, 2013 at 1:10 pm

        He was thinking like a 5 year old: I have to blame PBO and I’m going to stomp my feet to prove it. Seriously, you have to be told it’s important and that’s your excuse for not being informed?

      Simply put, Their Staffers go to these things and then write up a summary. However, since this was classified, these overpaid Congress people, could not be bothered to attend. I remember a while back, where I had read that at a briefing, Only 2 or 3 Congress men and women attended.

    • June 12, 2013 at 1:50 pm

      So instead of claiming that you were not aware of the information that was given in these briefings, be honest and admit that you aren’t of it because you didn’t bother to attend. You should assume that all the classified briefings are important enough for you to attend.

      • 65 57andfemale
        June 12, 2013 at 2:18 pm

        duh. That Ellison could come up with this lame excuse is insulting, even in this Congress.

        • June 12, 2013 at 2:29 pm

          I know of no other job where persons at his level can get away with the negligence that our that our congress persons are getting away with.

          Part of the problem is that persons of quality and character won’t run for public office because of the crap that goes along with it. Most don’t want to deal with the level of attacks and threats that our President and others have experienced.

      There’s nothing like Boston sandwich shops, nothing like a Boston sub either. Haven’t tasted anything like them since I graduated from college, except when I go back for reunions, which fortunately, I’ll get to do this fall!

      okay folks……I have the solution to the mole problem in the CIA, because I firmly believe there is a mole. We could lend the CIA our Brittany spaniel for 24 hours. She’d have that sucker found out so fast, heads would be spinning. If there’s one thing she’s good at, it’s sniffing out moles!!! Right now she’s in the back yard with her beady eyes FIXED on a mole’s location, just waiting for that critter to show up.

      You know, Jovie, it has only now occurred to me while reading your rendition of him that Eugene might have a speech impediment. I never listen to him because his speech pattern + his giggling + his rarely adding anything to the discussion are real turn-offs for me.

        June 12, 2013 at 1:27 pm

        He does have a speech impediment -apparently he stuttered as a child. However, the stuttering is the least of my problems with Robinson. As you stated VC, he never adds anything new to the discussion, and seems overly timid when it comes to challenging anyone on the MSNBC set. He giggles because he’s intimidated – which he really shouldn’t be for someone who has had so many years of experience.

      Hayes is being passive-aggressively confrontational to PBO -supporters (many of whom happen to be AA), with this continuous diatribe about MLK. He KNOWS that people are offended by the comparison, yet still continues with his. He is extremely disrespectful and NASTY.

    Good after noon everyone. I slept in a wee bit and thought I share a recent e-mail before I hit the daily roller coaster. 🙂

    Subject: Bank Account

    Bank Account

    This is a bit long but worth every minute!

    I hope you enjoy this as much as I did–how true it is!

    The Greatest Treasure You’ll Ever Own Is Your Attitude!!


    A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and

    proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with his hair fashionably combed and shaved perfectly, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.

    His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready.

    As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window. I love it,’ he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.

    Mr. Jones, you haven’t seen the room; just wait.’

    ‘That doesn’t have anything to do with it,’ he replied.

    Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time.

    Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged; it’s how I arrange my mind.

    I already decided to love it. ‘It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do.

    Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away; just for this time in my life. Old age is like a bank account; you withdraw from what you’ve put in.

    So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories!

    Thank you for your part in filling my Memory Bank. I am still depositing.

    ‘Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

    1. Free your heart from hatred.

    2. Free your mind from worries.

    3. Live simply.

    4. Give more.

    5. Expect less.

    Nice timing, AP. As we see the huge crowd at the Obama/Markey event the AP releases a negatively slanted Obama story. They are just exhausting themselves trying to come up with some Obama-maligning bit every day recently. This one asks if Obama is still an asset to Dems in the upcoming election—–does he help or likely hurt Dem candidates “amid all the controversies”? Hmmmmmmm? they ask. Writers were desperate—-nothing in the report backed up their “concerns”, unless you care about the Arizona rep. mentioned in the last paragraph who hasn’t said if she will campaign with PBO or not. Pitiful reporting.
