    Good Saturday, Chipsticks…TODers.

    After a stormy morning, the rain the sun is starting to peak out.

    I stumbled across this group after viewing a video one of the previous posts. This group of shadow dancers – Attraction – is amazing and the routines I have viewed thus far really touch the heart.

    Who’s who in the Chris Christie scandal


    Chris Christie is the biggest star of the George Washington Bridge story, but right now it involves 5 other key players. Steve Kornacki introduces the major people involved.

      I would only question using “Steve Kornacki” (the self-proclaimed “expert on New Jersey”) and “fascinating” in the same header. Ha!

    Agree Judith. Always great watching a bully get their comeuppance.

    Careful what you ASK FOR.


    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — West Virginia is sending a strong message to Washington to help protect its coal and natural gas industries.

    Attorney General Patrick Morrisey filed what he calls a “major” brief with the U.S. Supreme Court against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s new rule on cross-state air pollution.

    West Virginia, along with 15 other states, has already sued the EPA over the new regulations. A federal judge later ruled the agency went too far when it increased reviews of clean water permits for mountaintop mining operations. Then, the EPA appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals who later struck down the regulation saying it “exceeds the agency’s statutory authority.”

      Yet another example of the “Profit Over People” mentality….

      With all that has gone on in the past week…Christie’s lies and the fallout from that, and this toxic mess that effects hundreds of thousands in WV…it would seem to me to be the perfect teachable moment for all those still in denial about the real agenda of the Republican Party…we should not rest without connecting the dots here.

    Even better than a Christie story:

    Media, by cheering and not shaming bullying behavior that christie dished out to the ordinary citizens, are significantly guilty in creating fear in NJ and building an air of invincibility for the bully – they need to be called out on this;

    I also hope that someone (especially the DNC) is taking time to duplicate the multiple videos in which christie is recorded bullying ordinary citizens;

    Otherwise, you know and expect that political operatives are already “cleaning these out” or making them disappear from the public access

    FEMA Region 3 Has Been Activated: Emergency Situation Breaking In West Virginia

    By Josey Wales



    Many Reports are coming in to Sentinel Command of massive fighting breaking loose in West Virginia over Bottled water as the Chemical Spill Situation continues.

    As predicted, Fema Region 3 has now been activated, National Guard has also been been called out as this area in West Virginia has been declared a state of emergency. This chemical spill is now affecting 9 counties and over 100,000 residents are directly affected.

    All water in the area has been contaminated with the chemical (4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol), a chemical used in the coal industry. This chemical will make a person sick but it is not deadly unless ingested in huge quantity.

    Good morning TOD!
    Beautiful rainy day here in NYC. Melting the dirty snow away and it is not that old compared to earlier this week.
    Question: How many tickets are allotted to the host stadium?
    My son and friend have been trying to get tickets and they are ALL sold out. Most of his friends live in NJ. Since the Super Bowl will be played there this year, some NJ fans are filing a lawsuit.
    Right now the only answer I could give them is Christie is sitting on them.
    Would he dare to show up at the Super Bowl via GWB?
    If uses that infamous helicopter, I personally hope it sputters on the 50 yard line and drop his ass right there.
    Okay. Back to old movies day.

    Sure missing me some Ms. Dudette….
