    This event was so freaking cool. Using technology to make government work better? This geek says HELL YES!

    This is totally waaaaaaaaay off topic but for my Scandaholics here and abroad, this is the yummy UK season 2 promo. Kerry Washington is a master at her craft. UK TODer’s? You are going to looooooooooooove season two of Scandal. An emotional roller coaster is too tame a word to describe how intense it was.

        N Asomugha attended UC Berkeley and is a San Francisco 49er. We in the Bay Area may have Kerry Washington sightings. :O)

    Okay! Now I feel like me again. Took the user name back in the 2008 election when lots of OFA members included Obama in their names. Later many included Hussein somewhere in their user name, but I just stuck with my original.

      I remember our “Hussein” days – I joined in that and have had a few variations, since ’07! Glad you feel like “you” again!

      Hi GB,
      How are you doing? And how is recovery coming along? Are you yet or at your Mom’s?

      • July 8, 2013 at 6:46 pm

        I’m not at my mom’s yet.

        Recovering is going well although I wish it were more challenging. I have accomplished my goal of going up and down the stairs but I wish my therapist would agree to take it up a notch like walking without a walker. She panics so easily. So glad I didn’t start with her because I would not be where I am today.

      Wassup gb? Hiya doin’? I trust that you’re making improvements?

      • July 8, 2013 at 6:49 pm

        I’ve accomplished my goal of being able to go up and down the stairs. I’d like to walk without a walker now but my physical therapist would have a fit. She really is not a good match for me.

          Slow yo’ roll gb. You mes around doin’ what your mind tells you what to do and you’ll wind up on yo’ butt. Ask me how I know…….Do what your therapist tell you, okay? 🙂

          • July 8, 2013 at 7:28 pm

            🙂 🙂 🙂 I will. I do. but GAH! I’m falling asleep in sessions. Even she sounds bored when counting my reps.

            There are days where I feel like I can run but I know better. LOL!

              It ain’t automatic Sis. Forget the personalities aspect and get better then you won’t see this person again.

              • July 8, 2013 at 7:45 pm

                Yeah, I know it’s not automatic but I’m used to therapists who would ask me what area I want to work on and then they would push me beyond what I thought I could do. She doesn’t do that.

                In any case, I will do what she tells me because she has rules to follow. Her own and her boss’s. I’ll be nice to teacher 😉

    Hey I noticed online that big brother is drawing a lot of criticism? I never even heard of the show till now so looked at what they said and it seemed so scripted to me. I’m not dismissing prejudice but I felt like I was watching a bunch of actresses and actors. Reality TV has really gotten trashy it seems.

    You put a coin in an empty bottle and insert a cork in the bottle’s opening. How can you remove the coin without taking out the cork or breaking the bottle?

    Break your heads while I go get a cuppa.

    CNN Political Ticker…..Amanda Bynes call President and First Lady ugly. I am amazed that anyone would pay that has been dope up mentally messed up actress any attention. Our President and First Lady are not ugly. But to be honest who gives a dam what Amanda Bynes think, if she has a brain to think. I think I am more piss with CNN for even giving that messed up has been child star the attention she is seeking. Poor pitiful girl.

    The SB1 hearings are interesting to say the least and also frustrating. These anti-choicers have had several abortions yet in the same breath want to restrict other women from having the CHOICE to have an abortion if they so wish or if their lives are in danger. A New York man flew all the way from New York to deny women the access to abortion. Are you fucking kidding me? New Yorkers have access to abortion. They aren’t being harmfully restricted yet this non-Texan scumbag wants to deny Texas women the access to healthcare.

    You don’t have a uterus, you DON’T get to tell women what to do with their bodies or restrict their access to healthcare.
