    So, I belong to a few library listservs, and this came into my inbox yesterday:

    I don’t know if you heard about the plight of Kentucky Libraries. In case you haven’t, basically the ‘any tax is a bad tax’ organizations started a lawsuit to roll back library funding across most of the state to funding levels from anywhere between 10-30 years ago. In almost all areas this will devastate the state’s libraries. As part of… well… As part of whatever it is that they’re doing in KY to open up a discussion about this, they made this survey to determine the need for libraries most horribly called


    There are some real gems of a question in this survey that show the agenda or ignorance of whoever made it so even if you don’t want to take it, just looking at it will help you see what libraries are up against in KY.

    You can bet this survey spurred by the any tax is a bad tax organizations is being passed around those online forums across the country. If you’d like to take it, here it is.


    Granted, I doubt teabaggers read, but lots of conservatives use the library, as I can attest.

    If you have time, please take the survey.

      Thanks, LL. Took the survey.

    • September 7, 2013 at 1:49 pm

      I filled out the survey. I live in a small town in Indiana and our library is fairly new and jammed to capacity all the time and offer all kinds of innovative digital resources. It is a cultural center, the local bank sponsors a concert a month, they have televised training, groups meet there, movie nights for teens, programs for children. Probably 20 computers which are almost always full. Online geneological resources, training, geneological room. Craft workshops. I’m handicapped, put my books on hold and they have a techmobile that drives around locations to deliver. It is an absolutely invaluable resource for this community. And it was well-funded for a very small amount out of taxes.

      If you talk to someone who says libraries should be defunded ask them if they want to become Amish. Their car, cell phones, TVs, medical care — all of that is because of someone who is educated in libraries, schools and colleges. It’s not magic. And rich kids want jobs that will pay money — lawyers, bankers, etc. If they can’t understand that poor kids can’t afford books, computers and entertainment then they might be more motivated if they realize they won’t be able to get a new car or tv if there is no one to design it. Let alone the healthcare field!

    What does this unholy alliance between the TP libertarians and Anti-war Dems mean for 2014

    • September 7, 2013 at 1:56 pm

      It just means that we have to focus on what is important and keep on working. POTUS doesn’t do anything without thinking it through and I don’t believe for a minute that he just came up with this in 45 minutes walking around. The storm over this will pass and he will make sense to people for humanitarian reasons whether the strike takes place or not. Once again he is cleaning up a Bush mess because of the lying about Iraq. He is continuing his message about WMD. When he was a senator he worked with GOP Sen. Lugar on non-proliferation. When he was campaigning he said he would go after Bin Laden in a foreign country, McCain and Hillary both chided him about it, but he did it and he was right. He has been an incredible Commander-in-Chief.

    • September 7, 2013 at 2:15 pm

      PF, when it comes down to it, 2014 races are local and state elections and whether we win or lose depends on the quality of the candidates and how much we work to get out the vote. I don’t for one minute believe that this ‘alliance’ is in any way lasting because most Dems are miles apart from TP Libertarians when it comes to social issues and the role of government. Our job right now is to be sure good candidates step up to the plate in 2014. Then we register voters like mad, contribute all the financial support we can and work our tails off to get people to the polls. The BIG issue in the state of PA is the terrible, corrupt, incompetent, wildly unpopular sitting Republican governor, who is owned and operated by the Koch Brother. That’s going to be the biggest get out the vote card we have in 2014, not a foreign policy issues like Syria.

      I always pray for peace and I appreciate what the Pope is doing. However, Assad is a ruthless murderer and must be stopped from killing his people. We should pray that all nations will come together and stop him! IMHO

      • 45 jacquelineoboomer
        September 7, 2013 at 1:33 pm

        I agree. And the Pope isn’t calling out President Obama by name, but asking all people to pray for peace and use consultation and diplomacy around the world, which our President has been doing since day one and will continue doing, no matter what action he calls for in response to the CW use in Syria. From my own personal recollection and analysis (which isn’t worth much), I remember that Reagan, Gorbachev, and Pope John Paul II were named as being instrumental, among others, in the fall of Communism, and this is reminding me of that era. Luckily, Reagan’s not in power and, unfortunately, Putin is no Gorbachev, but I like to think President Obama is drawing strength from these prayers. Can’t hurt.

        It’s a big deal for Catholics for the Pope to have called for a worldwide fast and peace vigil, and he’s conducting a ceremony in St. Peter’s Square right now. He is appealing to believers and non-believers alike to work toward peace around the world. He has said, ” I appeal strongly for peace, an appeal which arises from the deep within me … ” and “There are so many conflicts in this world which cause me great suffering and worry, but in these days my heart is deeply wounded in particular by what is happening in Syria and anguished by the dramatic developments which are looming.”

        Finally, I really like the last part of this, from the Pope’s very inclusionary words: “I make a forceful and urgent call to the entire Catholic Church, and also to every Christian of other confessions, as well as to followers of every religion and to those brothers and sisters who do not believe: peace is a good which overcomes every barrier, because it belongs [to] all of humanity!”

        • 46 Layla
          September 7, 2013 at 1:45 pm

          I agree 100% with the Pope’s prayer and appreciate your lovely words! I am just concerned that prayers may not be enough to combat this evil and more action needs to be taken. Hopefully better hearts will prevail!

            I retain the happy Libra thought that even the heavens stand with President Obama, so I’m thinking much that he does will be instrumental in making better hearts prevail! And I’ll keep my Irish rabbit’s foot handy, too (well, if I had one, so that part was figurative).

        I don’t see it as “pro” or “anti”…I see this as simply pointing out that the situation there has changed over time…as in escalated. If we do nothing, then I think the argument that PBO makes for Assad not being reprimanded for gassing his own people, stands stronger. Nothing happened for the “little” CM murders and he kept upping the anti and getting bolder, gassing more and more of his people. I think this proves PBO’s point.

              You know df, the logic of people who oppose the President on taking military action, in response to Assad’s use of CW, because he did not take action before, totally escapes me. It’s like suggesting that I should not have surgery to repair a torn disk on my back because I didn’t take care of a nagging pain, which has become a totally excruciating and debilitating pain, by going to the doctor sooner.

              I find it really sad that some people are more focused on President Obama than they are about all the innocent Syrians that Assad gassed; and the possibility that he will continue to gas them if he is not stopped.

    • September 7, 2013 at 1:50 pm

      Thank you df. Important article, for sure. It shows how diligent the President has been and how he has wisely recognized that taking action would require support of the American people. To make a compelling case to do so he needed compelling data and a national conversation on the matter. The evidence is now compelling and the conversation is underway … just as it should be in a democracy no matter how messy and unpleasant it is.


      • 66 desertflower
        September 7, 2013 at 1:51 pm

        Correct. That was my take on this, too.

      • September 7, 2013 at 2:33 pm

        I agree, Bob, about the idea of conversation. PBO ALWAYS pushes for dialogue, not blind assent. He welcomed the conversation about NSA surveillance because he believed it was time for this country to rethink the broad powers surrendered to the Executive Branch under the Patriot Act. Snowden provided a lot of sturm and drang to the conversation that the president could have done without, but, in the end, he felt is was healthier for us to talk about it than to simply accede to a growing police state. In the case of surveillance, PBO wants safeguards, not because he distrusts himself, but because he distrusts the kind of presidents that might be elected in the future. Ditto war powers. The president understands that conversations are messy. Once you involve a lot of people–many hostile to yourself–you’re going to get dissonant voices. He knew this. He will do his best to coerce, persuade and educate. He will reach out to the core humanity of the American people. But, in the end, he doesn’t want a lot of compliant people. Citizenship is engagement. We might not agree. But we stay awake, aware and fight for our beliefs. That’s what makes a vibrant society. And in the long, long view, that’s what will preserve our democracy from ossification.

        • 68 theo67
          September 7, 2013 at 3:55 pm

          I agree. The President welcomes conversation because when all facts are considered openly, it’s harder for someone to come and hoodwink people later. We didn’t get a fair airing of Bush’s crimes and now some people are comparing honourable President Obama to war criminal Bush. Same story with a lot of Reagan’s crimes and indiscretions (e.g. Iran Contra). You’re so right.

        All these variations of past tenses are because English was at one time a highly inflected language, with multiple conjugations for verbs and multiple declensions for nouns. Every year students ask me why English is so erratic, why there are so many “irregular” verbs, and I give them my shortened lecture on the History of the English language. We now have the remnants of a much more complex, if you can believe it, language.
        Then, they ask me why is spelling so difficult, and I tell them basically, it’s because at one time, after 1066, 40% of our language was French, and we still have those descendants today, and also we have a fair amount of German, since we are a Germanic language.
        Together we make a list of all the “ough” words, and discuss the different ways those four letters are pronounced. It’s fun. I always have students who are English second language, and they seem to find this helpful.
        Just a note: The study of grammar is the study of “ought” The study of linguistics is the study of what is, what was, why, where, how.
        True, you won’t make money with it, but we all use language every day and I think it is our most precious gift.

        So, I now have a question for TODers: what do you think should be the plural of “you”? It is the only pronoun without a plural, officially. However, linguistically, people in different parts of the country deal with this situation in different ways. What do you think is best?

    It is increasingly true that the USA is multi-colored, multi-cultural, repectful of education, and interested in actual freedom and rights.

    The days are growing short for the Mike Bloombergs of this world.

    Bloomberg’s idiotic remarks were a gift to New Yorkers. Bill deBlasio can campaign on Bloombergs lies for the next 4 days and increase his margins .

I know if my brother was notified of that “way over the top senior moment,” he would have called in the keys to the car and allowed all of the great ingredients for my delicious banana pudding to be overrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr in a New York minute. Keep Sis in the house, neighbors until I can catch a flight out there.

    No, I got my ingredients, cooling off in the AC now (it is still very hot out here on the West Coast) and reading some LOL comments. Keep them coming, TOD family.

    Now, there is one report that Mark Knoller made that just made me have a ‘Come to the Loud Praise Moment’; I am sooooooooooooooo delighted that our president is playing golf on this lovely day. Great for him. I was hoping that he would do just that. I love our beautiful POTUS. You go on with your brilliant and fineeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee self, Mr. President. And Mrs. First Lady do your thing today as well. Let the heads start exploding.

    Banana Pudding for my DF being sent through the universe via “Loving TOD Universal Sweets for Enjoyment.” Our President play a great game of golf, and HZ making a delicious banana pudding on West Coast; now that is some American Sweetness for ya. HZ

        Yes, my dear lovely Layla, banana pudding. Soooooooooooooooooooo good. It is a very simple one, but so tasty.

        I will put a candle in my office/ sitting room just for you. That is a very quiet and room of many blessings. In fact, POB’s pillow is on the loveseat: “They call me, Mr. President.” He is point that long brilliant finger as he speaks those words. Nicely done. You in that space with your/our wonderful and brilliant president.

        Keep your space clear of too much worry; clear of thoughts that will sap your bright energy; and clear of ‘worry words and thoughts.’ Focus on your core goodness of heart, and a clear mind to receive good thoughts full of wisdom for your situations. Then keep still with your thoughts and give thanks and praise back into your space so it can flow throughout the Universe.

        (((((((((((((((((((((( Lots of beautiful hugs of good things to come to you in your space, my beautiful one.)))))))))))))))))))))))))))HZ
