      Hiya, Don, congrats on 1st!

      When UTA is in charge, things move at LIGHTNING speed.

      Was going to leave a comment on R&S to say how much I love the top photo, with the baby boy wearing an oversized tie.

      He’s too cute for words, and I love how excited he is to engage our President. He’s too young to understand the importance of POTUS’s office, so it’s obviously POTUS’s sheer magnetism that draws that response.

      Of course, we at TOD know this already.

      So how is one without a valid passport go from Hong Kong to Russia? Hmm? Without an arrest? Did that private plane reportedly waiting for Snowden fly him to Russia?

          June 23, 2013 at 12:02 pm

          Unless his lawyer is Johnny Cochran reincarnated, Snowden is still up shit creek.

            Yes, a WikiLeaks attorney will do little for him at this point. I do not understand how any country benefits itself by helping Snowden.

  11. June 23, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    It’s been a blast, but it’s time for me to go, but before I do, I simply must comment about Paula Deen.

    Who thought Paula Deen was a racial diplomat and is shocked by revelations that she is a bigot? That Crisco critter is a conservative confederate from Savannah.

    I was always totally unimpressed by a woman who’s claim to fame is cooking the food my Mama turned out every single day…with her eyes closed. But it’s what we do. We turn every ignorant person who gains success into overnight icons, based solely on their ability to command a few dollars and then are surprised when they do something we consider idiotic. Why would anyone be surprised there are naked photos of Kim Kardashian, or that some gang banger turned rapper is also a drug user? We take folks with no political, intellectual or diplomatic skills and elect them to chair sensitive international concerns.

    And don’t get the idea that Deen lost her job because she insulted Black folks. If she commanded an audience, had impressive numbers, the Food Network would have gone through hell and high water to renew her show. My guess, she was already on the way out.

      ‘And don’t get the idea that Deen lost her job because she insulted Black folks. If she commanded an audience, had impressive numbers, the Food Network would have gone through hell and high water to renew her show. My guess, she was already on the way out.’

      That was my thought too, FayP. Food Network’s response was so ‘quick,’ it made me wonder if they had been trying to find a way for a goodbye without too many legal repercussions and this played right into their hands. In fact, it would not surprise me to find out they had already told her she was on the way out and this was a nice way to publicize that by letting public assume her racist behaviour was the reason.

    • 38 pkayden
      June 23, 2013 at 2:20 pm

      I agree with you. I think after it came out that she had diabetes, her stock went way down. The kind of food she cooks is disgustingly unhealthy and her critics came out of the woodwork after her diabetes announcement and her subsequent shilling for diabetic companies. Never watched her show because I don’t believe in promoting fried donut sandwiches and food that is full of butter.

      • June 23, 2013 at 2:40 pm

        I never watched her show either, but don’t be knocking butter, pk. 🙂

      Okay, how about after TOD has gotten 20M hits….then that night, we finish up the night with a beverage of our respective choice and dive into exposing the Nuts in the TBGOPers just for the Fun 🙄 of it?

      I saw this – this is a tired old argument from the folks that oppose food stamp programs. from all i have heard programs like SNAP, EBT are very highly effective ways of stimulating the economy, besides the OBVIOUS – helping people in need. I don’t get it. But then again Yard I don’t get most Republicans……

    Oops! Had to come back to pose a question. I was just asked why using the “n” word is so much worse than calling someone a “faggot”. Why are Blacks so touchy? I told the person I will pose the question to my wise council and let them know. I’ll be back. 🙂
    And I expect some answers! 🙂

    • June 23, 2013 at 12:27 pm

      Here’s your answer:

      Nobody says that you can’t say ‘Nigger’

      But, accept the consequences.

      If you roll upon the wrong Black person, and they slap the shyt out of you…

      Accept the consequences of your actions.

      Nigger is frought with racial animus and part of a system of racial supremacy.

      Show me how faggot is part of a system of ‘sexual supremacy’.

    • 62 Layla
      June 23, 2013 at 12:28 pm

      There will be people who will argue there are historical differences, and while true, does not somehow make one slur ‘more acceptable’ than another. Hateful words are hateful words, period.

    • 63 Don
      June 23, 2013 at 12:56 pm

      I hear the word “nigger” on a daily basis, but then again I’m surrounded by murderers, rapists, child-molesters, drug dealers, bank robbers, white collar criminals and the like. And yet the word still has an effect on me. I wish I could say that when I hear that word coming from someone that is white that it didn’t affect me as much as hearing it coming from someone that is black, but it does.

    • June 23, 2013 at 1:33 pm

      Chris Rock best said it. Race trumps EVERYTHING in America, and I mean EVERYTHING. Ask any white gay person, if they would rather be black instead of gay. The answer will tell you all you need to know.

      I guarantee you that virtually no one will respond affirmatively to that question – unless they are lying to themselves and to you.

    • June 23, 2013 at 2:02 pm

      Thanks, everyone. My white friends and I let it all hang out, so I will often mention something racially crazy or naive we’re spatting about. I shared your thoughtful answers with her, but added…the slur “nigger” is unique in it’s history and intent. Faggot can refer to anyone…Black, white, Hispanic, old, young. Faggot can mean weak, indecisive, silly or feminine. Whereas “nigger” has a specific, negative and historical context directed only towards Black people.

      • June 23, 2013 at 5:13 pm

        ALRIGHTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT…ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THE N WORD…..

        IF YOU THINK THAT IT IS ALRIGHT TO USE THIS WORD…WHY THE HELL DID EVERYONE GET UPSET WITH PAULA DEAN….

        • June 23, 2013 at 5:36 pm

          Prettyfoot…did you miss the point of this exchange? We’re discussing it precisely because the use of the word isn’t okay, and why it isn’t.

      • June 23, 2013 at 5:44 pm

        FayPax, I understand what you’re saying, but pleeeeeeeease don’t use the N word here, under any circumstances. Thanks.

    • 69 pkayden
      June 23, 2013 at 2:31 pm

      Both the “f” and the “n” word are inappropriate slurs. Don’t see either one as okay.

    From The Guardian’s Miriam Elder in Moscow:

    I just talked to Ecuador’s ambassador, Patricio Chavez, inside Sheremtyevo airport, outside the ‘capsule hotel’ where Snowden is said to take a room.

    He has not spoken to Snowden yet, he does not know where he is, and he would not confirm these reports that Ecuadorian doctors have examined him.

    Asked why he was here, Chavez said: “We have an interest in knowing what is happening to him,” but would not go further.

    let’s see here…president obama takes down the clinton machine, then the republican party twice in national elections with a mainstream media doing everything they can to stop him, quickly staves off another great depression, expertly takes down those somali pirates keeping americans hostage, gets major healthcare legislation passed with republicans and “the news” trying to stop him every second, eliminates the osama bin laden boogeyman which was the justification for the trillions spent and hundreds of thousands dead in iraq, starts with approximately 140K troops in iraq now to down to zero with afghanistan almost there too, and on and on…

    i think he’ll handle this traitor-on-the-loose story just fine, and in short order.

      Probably not unexpected, but the MSM is treating the Snowden affair as an insult to PBO. It seems to be nothing but an attempt by a few bad acting countries looking for a political one-upmanship.

        June 23, 2013 at 12:58 pm

        Is that what’s happening? (Not near a TV set now.)

        Journalists need to get off their knee-jerk horse and take a look at GG’s twitter timeline, and search for “Obama.”

        Every GG tweet about our President drips with personal vemon and hatred.

        But instead, almost all journalists in my twitter timeline are defending GG (even some surprising ones, like @politicalwire and @davidcorndc).

        I really don’t understand why they don’t think it’s suspicious:

        1) GG and Poitras were in contact with #Snowden before he worked for #BAH
        2) That the fugitive #Snowden is obviously being abetted by the person that GG has most vocally defended (Assange).

        • June 23, 2013 at 1:26 pm

          Of course they know damn well that this is about GG’s hatred for PBO. But they have to pretend and feign otherwise. They don’t want to lose their jobs, and they all have compromised standards of integrity.

          “Every GG tweet about our President drips with personal venom and hatred.”

          Unfortunately for GG, Snowden is eclipsing the NSA “scandal”. President Obama may be damaged by the NSA revelations but GG was looking for a knockout punch and that’s not going to happen now that Snowden has become the focus.

      • 83 4morefor44
        June 23, 2013 at 1:03 pm

        that was a weird part about this for me right at the beginning. the first stories i saw about this were all embedded with a sense of this brave no-name standing up that that eeeeevil president we have. ironic that this “national conversation” the snowdenwald claims it wanted to start, basically shows president obama has made things better on this topic since he took over from the republicans. of course the snowdenwald or the “the news” have no interest in explaining that to the voting public though.

        president obama is driving them crazy by not falling into their tried and true traps from the past, and he’s not going to do any bill clinton-type nonsense, so i think they’re freaking out since their running out of time, and so now they just simply need to create some storylines on their own with which they can (falsely) hammer president obama. instead of “false flags,” maybe we should start calling these snowdenwald things things, “False Flies.” and we know what our president does with those!

          LL, the timeline suggests that he went to the NSA with the intent of gathering info. Seems he made his contacts beforehand.

          • June 23, 2013 at 2:26 pm

            Greenwald & Poitras are both on record, bragging how they were interacting with him before he was hired by Booz Allen. The folk at Booz Allen are undoubtedly being intensively scrutinized regarding every aspect of who hired Snowden, who recommended him, etc. But, all that aside, the nature of what Snowden was doing with Greenwald, Poitras and perhaps others like Assange is the core of the issue of why and how Snowden did what he did – and who’s been paying the bills during the entire interval of his first contact with GG and Poitras.

        • June 23, 2013 at 2:19 pm
