    A beautiful Sat. to my Chips and my TOD family. Chips, thanks so much for the video of the Queen of Soul. I feel that our POTUS and First Lady as well as our AG, Eric Holder and Mrs. Sharon Malone Holder also were blessed. I just cried because it was an uplifting moment to see POB,FLOTUS, AG Holder and Sharon taking his their blessings as Ms. Franklin gave such a lovely testimony in song. Great spoken word and song.

    It makes my heart deliciously grateful when I see music lifting our President and First Lady enjoying this great gift. One of the Greats said this about music: ” One of the guiding philosophies of music is to find your own voice.” Thelonious Monk, Composer and Pianist.

    Everyone put a word, a meditative thought, and a loving prayer in your space for our beautiful POTUS and FLOTUS today, please.

    {{{{{{{{{{ Loving hugs to Mom Chips}}}}}}}}}}} and of course to my {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{ Chips and my grandson, Danny}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}HZ

    “Turkish Fighters Scrambled After Russian Spy Plane Spotted

    ISTANBUL –- Six F-16 fighter jets were scrambled by the Turkish Air Force after a Russian surveillance plane flew along its Black Sea coast, the military said on Friday, amid increased tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

    The incident, the second of its kind reported this week, occurred on Thursday. The Russian plane remained in international airspace, according to a statement on the website of the military general staff. All three countries have borders along the Black Sea.


    On Friday, a U.S. navy guided-missile destroyer, the U.S.S. Truxtun passed through Turkey’s Bosphorus straits bisecting Istanbul on its way to the Black Sea ….”

    Meanwhile when he is trotted out on NBC MTP, CNN SOTU, or CBS Face The Nation to spew more rubbish, none of the hosts will EVER mention his low approval rating even as they bray about PBO’s “all time low 41% approval rating” or whatever number they happened to pull out their arses…..

      To think this man McCain used to be respected so highly, now he is just another one of those right wing racists conservative, who has not gotten over the fact that Senator Barack Obama beat him in 2008. Obama kept him from being President and that Sarah Palin Vice President.

        GWB also kept him from being President in 2000, but he had to swallow that whole to stay in the game as a Republican … he let it destroy his insides for 8 years before he finally let his vitriol out on “that one,” when he lost to our wonderful President. Green-eyed monster now, as well as then, who fooled a lot of the country before finally exposing himself. That’s the real “straight talk” McCain never shared until his last presidential campaign.

      I share your frustration, hf. Low poll numbers are news and important to the media only when Democrats have them. PBO and Bill deBlasio’s numbers are gloated over if they are less than 99%.
      Repubs—– Poll numbers?, what poll numbers??

        That’s right Vicki. deBlasio has now joined PBO as one of the media’s favorite targets. The media doesn’t just go after any Dem – but they target popular, EFFECTIVE Democrats who actually pose a threat to the status quo.

    Essential reading!!!

    Crimea: Putin vs. Reality
    Timothy Snyder

    “The costs of what Russia has done are very real, for Europe, for Ukraine, and for Russia itself. Russian propaganda has elegantly provided a rationale for Russian tactics and articulately defined a Russian dream for Ukraine. But in the end propaganda is all that unites the tactics and the dream, and that unity turns out to be wishful. There is no actual policy, no strategy, just a talented and tortured tyrant oscillating between mental worlds that are connected only by a tissue of lies. Putin faces a choice: use far more violence, in the hope that another surge will finally make the dream come true, or seek an exit in which he can claim some victory—which would be wise but deflating. He appears to feel the weight of this choice.”


    #TrustBarack …. a be forever grateful, humanity, that he is the President of the USA at this time …

    Hey friends, This may be a bit O/T, but also think ACA links, etc. are never off topic. Found this on a Facebook page and wanged to share. Would love to have responses. If these figures are correct, that explains why many ofn the right, my husband included, dislikes/hates the ACA so much and insists it will “bankrupt” us, costs too much, etc.

    Still scratching my head about the reports of Russian troops placing land mines close to the Crimea gas pipeline!!!!

    I am a little rusted on my combustion theories but logic would imply that no matter what angle you look at it, this is utter stupidity and outright recklessness !!

    Whether the cause of combustion is accidental or a deliberate explosion is set of, the damage resulting from this would be huge, or even catastrophic – what in the world is wrong with these people taking such actions;

    Then there are reports of this floating around – confirmation of accuracy is pending ( will know if reports are true in time)
