        It’s great especially if you have been at work or out all day…….you don’t have to scroll 10 hrs. worth of your timeline….. Tweetdeck is “can’t live w/o as well” ……. can individualize categories into verticals. Life savor….especially during real-time events.

    The same group of people who the audacity to ” blind quote trash ” President Obama on a moments notice…..

    A letter that a group of progressive Democrats sent to federal regulators opposing new protections for millions of Americans’ retirement accounts was drafted by a financial-industry lobbyist, according to documents obtained by Mother Jones. The Department of Labor, which oversees the federal law setting minimum standards for many retirement plans, would like to require retirement investment advisers to act in the best interest of their customers, as opposed to their own best interest.

    But 28 out of the 43 members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC)—a group of African American members of Congress that advocates the interests of low-income people and minorities—signed onto a June 14 letter opposing the rule. So did Democratic lawmakers Pedro Pierluisi of Puerto Rico, Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, Ed Pastor of Arizona, and Jim Costa of California. The letter’s metadata indicates it was drafted by Robert Lewis, a lobbyist who works for the Financial Services Institute (FSI), an investment industry trade group:

    In lieu of Dudette, and TOD’s twitter activity yesterday…..if your not a believer, check out this study and correlating video/articles re: Twitter

    The findings rest on two important points: The raw number of tweets about a candidate doesn’t matter, and neither does whether the tweets are positive or negative. Rojas and his colleagues, who collected hundreds of thousands of tweets from the 2010 race, initially measured the total number of times the candidate was mentioned, but the findings failed to correlate with which candidate won. Well-known candidates, like Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., or candidates from bigger and wealthier districts would inherently receive more attention. It was then, Rojas said, they realized that what mattered was the Twitter “horse race,” or the number of tweets a candidate earns vis-à-vis his or her opponent. Just as the candidates would compete for a limited percentage of the vote, they would also compete for a limited percentage of the total Twitter traffic.

    Perhaps most interesting, whether the tweet praised or criticized the recipient was irrelevant. When it comes to Twitter and politicians, apparently all publicity really is good publicity. “Are you going to talk about the guy who loses or the guy who wins?” Rojas asked. “You’re going to talk about the winner, even if you hate the winner.”

    President Obama liked the idea laid out in a memo from his staff: an ambitious plan to expand high-speed Internet access in schools that would allow students to use digital notebooks and teachers to customize lessons like never before. Better yet, the president would not need Congress to approve it.

    White House senior advisers have described the little-known proposal, announced earlier this summer under the name ConnectEd, as one of the biggest potential achievements of Obama’s second term.

        You didn’t, D! I hung back to read that Clinton article that Meta shared. Gave up halfway through – my conclusion to that point = they don’t know how to manage ‘public’ funds or how to choose capable managers. Reading about their money issues reminded me that PBO helped Hillary pay off her last campaign obligations. Each time I see mention of her running in 2016 I cringe. She just doesn’t seem right for the position going forward IMO.

        Ah me, I’m definitely ‘off’ this time. 😀

        • August 14, 2013 at 1:34 am

          VC, Ms Clinton is not the future America needs. So, I could not agree more with your assessment.

          By the time we get to mid-2015 my expectation is that President Obama & @OFA will be nurturing a truly exceptional candidate.

            Bobfr, I sure hope you are right about PBO & OFA nurturing a great candidate. Just now I saw another reference to Hillary preparing herself by entering academia [[Hillary Clinton is fielding offers from colleges and universities — including Harvard and her law school alma mater, Yale — to give her a formal academic role, a move that would give her a platform…]] and my absolute first reaction is that despite her education and experience I would find her to be a boring lecturer. She just doesn’t have that special something that would endear her to *me*.

        Ha! My older sister introduced that song to my younger sister and me back in ’59. Once in a while when we call each other, one of us plays it in the background for the other. She also taught us to “jitterbug” while we all watched American Bandstand. Good times.

        Goodnight to you, Dudette, and – again – I am so happy our young man will, hopefully, get his heart transplant! If folks didn’t know what was in your own heart before last night, you showed ’em. Thanks for standing up and being counted and helping to call attention to that unfairness! Off I go to dreamland.
