    Happy New Year Chips, amk, VC, Vick C, and all other TOD Family. Looking for a very eventful 2014 in the political world this year. Good think I don’t have cable anymore, just my computer. 🙂

    Good Morning on this first day of 2014 Chipsticks, VC, AMK, Roberta… TOD Early Birds!!!!

    I guess is safe to assume that everyone’s calendar has crossed into 2014, so I reiterate my wishes to each of you for a new year of love, peace, hope, health, and happiness.

    Happy New Year everyone!

    Chips, repeat after me: My New Year’s resolution is I will stop cheating on posts. I will not steal first. I will stop cheating.

      {{{{Symmetry}}}} It’s going to be, right? A part of me cannot wait to see how 2014 unfolds, and another part is wary of the personal aging bit. Wish I could separate the two. 😉

      Happy, Healthy, (laundry-folding-free?) and Prosperous 2014, Symmetry! 😀

    So the presidents pick it the Supreme Court Sotamyor orders that the contraception mandate STOP, they have until Friday to comply.
    Talk about a stick in the eye, so that’s done now it’s over with!
    No more contraceptions for the Catholics. I guess??

      As I understand it, Jovie, the government has until Friday to “reply,” not comply. I don’t believe this will stand. Have a great new year.

      Happy New Year, Jovie! [It’s nice to see you are still Jovie. 😀 ] Give it time. Time to see where she intends to go with this. One of her strengths is that she is supposed to be a ‘reasonable Latina’; that’s why she is where she is. IMO

          Methinks she is also smart enough (and enough into the 21st century) to not let her personal &/ religious beliefs strangle her judicial decisions – decisions that will affect millions who may not share those beliefs.

    Happy New Year everyone now that all time zones seem to have come on board. It’s been a heckuva ride and we’ve got a roller coaster ahead of us. Hang on tight and keep the faith–it’s going to be a good year. Thanks to Chips for creating this center of love, to UT for helping to sustain it and for all the other contributors for giving them both a break from time to time. We are one very lucky group.

        Right, hf.
        Noon at City hall. I hope millions of people watch Harry Belafonte, The Clintons, Andrew Cuomo and many others join in the fun.
        New Day dawned in NYC.
        Right wing in deep mourning now that their hero Bloomberg has let go of the steering wheel.

        This is a most positive New Years’ day!!!!

          This is a great day for New York, Vicki. I wish I still lived in the state and could take a train into town to see this. You have no idea how much I long for my home state. I have been wandering in the wilderness for over 40 years and it’s unlikely I’ll be moving back any time soon since it’s farther away from our grandchild. Enjoy today for all of us and bask in your achievement.

    Good morning and Happy New Year TOD ohana!

    So grateful to Chips, the mini-blog tyrants and all who have kept me informed, inspired, and amused all in support of our dear PBO, his family and administration, and each other.

    I was off-line for most of the evening yesterday, but when I opened my email links to the site, Oh, my, my my, the fine-ness that is PBO in those jeans (Michelle must have bought those for him). He is so cool and slim and_________!! Off to drool!

    Happy New Year from St Kiitts and Nevis, may your New Year be filled with love, health, happiness and blessings. A most joyous, prosperous, healthy and politically full filling New Year to President Obama and all Dems

    A Dem Congress is in the cards if we all work extra hard to make it happen…Happy New Year one and all in spite of all aches, pain and losses. Have a great day I am off to visit friends and then to work..

    Is the MSM WHPool being spiteful by limiting the Hawaii Holiday Pics…(Of course they do need privacy but this seems unusual) Chips we need our own photo guys/gals

    • January 1, 2014 at 8:52 am

      Happy new year Anjo!!! I don’t think are ever too many photos from the Obamas’ Hawaii holidays because they’re private, but hopefully we’ll get a few more before they return to DC.

      I’m glad there are not that many pictures, because this is a vacation and the First Family need some privacy sometimes. It can’t be easy with the camera in your face 24/7. I hope they are enjoying their time together with each other, with family and friends.

        With you on this, ab, the entire family is long overdue for this break and relief from the public eye. The attention has been relentless, and the family have all been unfailingly gracious and graceful in the face of unprecedented publicity! So, we miss seeing them for a few days, big deal. We can appreciate why! Love you, anniebella! 🙂

    Chips, I am wondering if Danny was in Tiawan. The Rubber Duck burst and deflated on Tuesday, leaving locals shocked and disappointed.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR from the Golden Gatet!!

    I’m ever SO thankful for Chips, UT, the BTs and all of TODville. Love you, guys. Thank you for the tremendous effort and thought everyone puts into this place every single day. This is a fantastic intersection of ideas, humor, song and wisdom and all your voices make us strong.

    Special thanks to the TOD twitter brigade, a FORCE to be reckoned with. To those who are not on twitter, please consider joining us to make a difference in this election year. POTUS, Nancy Smash and Senator Reid need us and our country desperately needs sensible gun control, immigration reform and a strong response to climate change.

    TOD, may this year be full of good health, good cheer and ACTIVISM!

    Here we come, 2014.
    Are you ready to help us fight, fight, fight for a majority in Congress?
    Every day counts!

  21. January 1, 2014 at 8:55 am

    Happy New Year to all from the Jersey shore. Thanks to Chips , UT and all the BT’s who keep us informed. Today the minimum wage goes up in NJ.

      Utaustinliberal, this is such good news. Why is the media peddling 2 million? They haven’t talked about anything past 2 million. It makes me so mad that they will not get the news out correctly. I only hear them saying; President Obama will not get to 7 million. grrrrrr grrrrrr

    The hold on the contraception mandate is temporary and it was done right before the jan. 1st deadline. I think that some people should calm down and wait for all the facts because time and again people start hyperventilating for no good reason.

    We are under siege here in Ill-i-noise. It keeps snowing and snowing and snowing and snowing. Latest round started yesterday afternoon and has not stopped. It’s a sea of white out there, no creature is moving, not even a mouse. Roads are not visible. Good thing most people do not have to venture out today. They can remain cozy inside and enjoy shaved ice photos and the fact that in this new year, 2014, Barack Obama, is still the President of the United States, a most peaceful truth.
