      Hi, Layla…….from Lala. 🙂

      BTW, that story I shared at the end of last thread about our Speaker Ron Ramsey–He “calls” himself a follower of Christ. He has spoken at our church. His sister is an active and long-time member of our church. Hypocrite, just like all the rest of them!

    I so love, respect and admire President Obama. While everyone is running around with their hair on fire and full of indignation over who said what, POTUS is going along about the business of the United States of America.

    Me?, I’m chillin because I KNOW he’s GOT THIS.

    He will tell us who did what when – when he’s ready and not a moment before.

        GGail and Layla, that is always how I feel about President Obama as well. I pray for wisdom, compassion, calmness, and a complete participation in how he carry out his duties to the nation as our president. POB will be fine; it is the acts of the foolish people who oppose him at every side who will pay dearly in the future days, months, years for all of the hateful acts, words, and deeds to try to trip this president up. It will Not happen.

        There are so many people of faiths praying daily for POB and his administration. President Obama has a deep faith, and he leans on it privately and with assurance that it will help him get through all of the crap that is thrown at him daily. We can continue to keep him, his administration,, and First Family in our prayers/meditations.

        TOD family, you all are the best, and I want to again thank our beautiful and wonderful Chips for providing this beautiful haven for all of us. There is so much talent, patience, love, and most of all respect within our family, and our POTUS and FLOTUS do appreciate all of us.

        (((((((((((((((((((((( Everyone, have a lovely evening, and do not forget your water.))))))))))))))))))))))))) I love water and always drink lots with the guidance of my cardiologist. Love you all so dearly. Thanks for being here for me as well.HZ

    reminder—-Bill deBlasio on with Rev Al and then on NY1 with Errol Louis.
    Lots of New yorkers from the Quinn and Thompson campaigns have been joining with deB all day.
    Also Jon stewart—not a favorite of mine—had a fabulous bit on the deBlasio family. TPM has the clip.

    Bill de Blasio’s son (and his righteous ‘fro) remind me of one of my patrons, one of the most intelligent young men with whom I’ve come into contact.

    I am glad our Beloved President surrounds himself with intelligent, hard-working, positive, loyal and optimistic people. On an aside–Rev Al is going in on Jesse Helms who looks like Porky Pig with glasses.

              I enjoyed every minute of it, and look forward to November. If I were living in NYC, I would volunteer on his campaign. I think he has the city’s best interests, not just those of the Upper East Side or Park Slope residents.

                Oh good, hf2. I am happy to hear what not-NY folks think of our candidate.
                Bill deB has been working on the ground with our communities for a long time. As I’ve mentioned before Bill came to a rally we had in our neighborhood to protest the closing of our firehouse.
                I treasure the article and picture which shows Bill, Steve Buscemi (Nucky Thompson in “Boardwalk Empire”) and me, right next to Steve. If I knew how to do it I’d send the article here. I can send things by e-mail, though, if I’ve ever had Chips address, I’ve lost it.

                  Actually I don’t really qualify as a non-Nyer….I’ve actually lived in NYC for much of my adult life thus far, have voted for Hillary, Spitzer, Eliot Engel, Schumer, etc..

      Let’s see if MSM will continue to hide from the George Zimmerman story.

      Yesterday, it seemed that only AJAM was reporting on the Medical Examiner being fired after complaining about Sanford Police incompetance.

      Since the source of this story is “left-wing George Soros publication,” MSM will no doubt be as derogatory as possible about the report, if they mention it all.

      MSM only like to stir the pot (i.e., Race in America!) but don’t like to scratch beneath the surface.

    NBC in Philly is now saying 80% of the boardwalk in Seaside Park is destroyed by the fire. Wow.

    • 90 hopefruit2
      September 12, 2013 at 6:37 pm

      Yes, I saw this on Twitter. That’s so sad. Wasn’t this the same boardwalk damaged by Sandy and then repaired? No?

      • 91 jacquelineoboomer
        September 12, 2013 at 6:42 pm

        Yes. They had to cut through the brand new boardwalk to dig trenches, earlier, to try to stop the fire. Didn’t work, apparently.

    • September 12, 2013 at 6:42 pm

      Man. I don’t know Seaside that well, since it’s closer to Philly than NYC. Is its boardwalk big?

        (I’m guessing you’d have gone more to Atlantic City, than Seaside, from NYC?)

        This is from wiki, updated with today’s catastrophe:

        Casino Pier and Funtown Pier (partially located within both Seaside Heights and neighboring Seaside Park) are amusement parks, each situated on a pier extending approximately 300 feet (100 m) into the Atlantic Ocean. Each of the two piers are part of a boardwalk that stretches for 2 miles (3.2 km) and offers many family-friendly attractions ranging from arcades, to games of chance, to beaches, to the wide variety of foods and desserts, all within walking distance. Breakwater Beach (formerly known as Water Works) is a water park situated across the street from Casino Pier.

        Destruction from Hurricane Sandy
        Both piers suffered major damage on October 29, 2012, during Hurricane Sandy. Sections of both piers were torn apart by powerful storm surges and waves causing many of the rides to collapse into the ocean. Casino Pier began cleanup attempts soon after, in an attempt to reopen in time for the summer 2013 season.

        On September 12, 2013 a 5 alarm fire broke out in the Kohrs ice cream shop on the south end of the boardwalk. The fire started spreading north and also caused the rest of Funtown Pier to catch fire. Smoke can be seen and smelt as far north as Point Pleasant.

        • September 12, 2013 at 7:22 pm

          Yeah, Atlantic City was more where we’d visit.

            I was “in love with” a guy named Al from NYC during one whole summer visiting my aunt and uncle’s house near Seaside, the summer between 7th and 8th grade. I was too shy to speak to him, but, hey, I’m loyal like a puppy and still remember how cute he was! #HisLoss

    MSM really should ask people they interview about Syria if they believe what the majority of Republicans do (or ask who was responsible for over a thousand deaths from Hurricane Katrina):

    Please send a note to one of PBO’s very reliable supporters – mentioning the loss of a dear father.

    Tweets from this account are often featured on TOD.

    Great person to follow.

    thanks in advance for supporting another PBO supporter.
