    Look carefully at how securely that cheek-puffing tester is held, and with what focus! Exactly how PBO holds the country’s middle class in his hands – with loving focus.

    Evening Obots.

    Well, shit’s getting hairy in eastern Ukraine. Lots of “spontaneous” protests by Russian speakers. I guess Vlad has decided on his course, and in his fevered mind he sees no other option than all out war against Ukraine.

        Yes indeed! Liberals better pay attention to black folks of all ages who stood in long lines, both in 2008 and 2012, to make sure they voted for President Obama. The con games peddled by some of these public “Black Intellectuals” don’t fool the vast majority of Black folks.

        Isn’t that something? Reminds me of when the Duck Dynasty folks realized their show was tanking from bad publicity, and so they tried to revive their image by posting a story on Brietbart.com, claiming that PBO watches Duck Dynasty with his girls and they all enjoy watching it. If you can’t stand him and his policies then why do you need him endorsing your show to the point where you have to lie about it?

    Thanks for all the pictures! I do especially love the picture of PBO and the pope laughing. Each one has the eyes of the world on him at every moment, but they are so in this moment, enjoying each other and laughing so. When PBO smiles, the world smiles.

    The Obama economic story is Never fully told in My Opinion.

    8.9M jobs in 49 months. They say 6.7% UE rate.

    There are 10K Baby Boomers turning 65 daily and Most Likely are retiring at that high number. Currently, 3.5M Jobs today are not filled in US due to lack of skills.

    US population is not growing as fast.

    Since US media is Dead. GOP works on fear and distractions therefore, undermining true political discussions.

    • April 6, 2014 at 9:22 pm

      It’s the only strategy they’ve got and we are on to it. Now, all we need to do is meet, preferably exceed, 2012 turnout on 4 Nov 2014, and turn the House BLUE & retain/expand DEMS in the Senate. Then, we will enable President Obama, with a supportive Legislative Branch, to do some serious repair of the systemic issues thwarting America.

    I’m glad to see Dems are now making the Koch Bros the poster child of the GOP in the 2014 midterms. Their faces should be connected with all the policies of the GOP, low wages, denial of health care, voter suppression, environmental pollution, tax evasion of the rich, and sending jobs overseas.

    • April 6, 2014 at 9:36 pm

      Totally agree Bill, and we can each do our part to make it stick, just as we did with Scott Prouty’s May 17, 2012 video of Mr 47 percent. Every day, we drive the message Bircher plutocrat #KOCHBro and their #KOCHSTER enablers are doing everything they can to destroy our democracy, our environment and the lives of the vast majority of Americans.

      We will stop them.

  25. April 6, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    As I noted in the previous thread, the past 24 hours provide ample reason to expect that Tzar Vlad intends to go to war. Any doubts can be erased by:

    A document found by someone in Donetsk (local journalists?), translated from Russian by William Risch.

    1. Don’t give up buildings, reinforce them. There should be no less than 1,000 people for the night in them, in each building-camp, reinforced and armed. Men in platoons (otriady), women to get food and medicine. Organize a 24-hour guard duty, form armed rapid reaction groups.
    2. In the regions, “lop off” the local SBU units. Take the buildings, cut off communications, rid them of their ability to function. The SBU in Kiev should lose its local connections. The SBU is Enemy Number One, and we need to behead it and uncover its agents by any means necessary.
    3. Take over regional TV studios and begin our own broadcasts. The main thing is to preserve technical connections to television networks, and if journalists run away, you can do what you want – show clips from Youtube, read the news. The main thing is to present our own information.
    4. Don’t “demand” referendums, but carry them out. Set up electoral commissions, demand voter lists from official electoral commissions, make arrangements with printers, and print ballots. Let official authorities in Donetsk who also were for a referendum help, but don’t give them the initiative.
    5. Go to mines and factories and agitate. For the time being, it’s a revolution by young people and the elderly. The rest shoot up drugs and drink beer. The mines should go over to strike mode until the situation has become completely clear – when it is certain that rejoining Russia will produce its rewards.
    6. Make connections with the “Legitimate One” (Yanukovych – translator). Let him do something useful – officially appoint representatives from the people governors of Donetsk and Lugansk.
    7. Among the police, promote the propaganda of non-interference and not enforcing orders for the “defense” of institutions of authority that are under the Junta. Don’t even allow them to defend them passively. Don’t hold back.
    8. Block riot police bases. Call on draftees mobilized to go over to the side of the people in organized fashion.
    9. Unblock the border with the Russian Federation (RF) at least in some sections. Do the opposite for the western borders of southeast Ukraine, set up border posts and don’t let anyone from western Ukraine in.

    We do what little we can, operating on the principle of never making an assumption ….

    wow, so putin is tired of being out of the headlines and is trying to ratchet up more hostility among ordinary people and among nations?

    yep, putin is really like the republicans – too arrogant for his own good and never seems to know when to hold and when to walk away;

    history is full of political monsters who believed the hype of those around them before they realized that they had lost it all in the end;

    did I say how much I really, really, ….. really despise him??

    Went to FB to post Bobs comment and saw a few things. . .
    เอิ่มม. . .เมิงกะจะไม่ให้กุกินเลยชิมิ -*-
    เอิ่มม. not to shift moeng. Hot Chip-eating were not *- A Bing translation of a Thai pet site showing a cat. 😉 I didn’t watch video yet, but I thought Hot Chips-eating was funny.
    Second my Step-grandson posted he just broke Gingers windshield. My first thought was with a baseball bat. But after reading comments it was with his head. (He hates us and his step-father, think he said his mother too, but loves his brothers! Complicated family relationship). One of the reasons I keep FB, to see what the kids post. A few family and//or friends are restricted so my political friends don’t get offended by what they post. Anyway he just has a bump on his head if he’s being honest with his brothers.
    I almost never reply to my rethoug family, but I just had to on this one. . .
    Senator David Vitter
    “It must be nice to be king. President Obama just issued a veto threat on my bill that would force him to live under Obamacare. Please like and share if you think the President should have to live under the law named after him.”
    (I asked him who named it ObamaCares.) Then I blocked him, but FB has been terrible about keeping them blocked and I see things I HATE! And are hateful! Isn’t he the whore chaser? I don’t know what his legislation is either. Something stupid I’m sure.
    Well that’s all folks, GoodNight! 💤

    Does anyone have a homemade recipe for itching? For some reasons I have started itching in small spots on my face and arms. . . The cortisone cream isn’t helping. It just started this morning. Only new medicine I’ve had is drops in eyes and those have been reduced from five to two. Well B’Night. . .

    • 113 jacquelineoboomer
      April 7, 2014 at 12:52 am

      I’m no expert on what to use to stop the itching, but do you think it’s an allergic reaction to something? Could you call your doctor?

      • April 7, 2014 at 1:05 am

        It isn’t urgent, but I can’t think of anything different about what’s on my face or arms, except the cortisone cream. Last Sat night my face was all swollen for a few days, that’s why the cortisone cream. It didn’t really work though. I only put the cream on today again after itching started this morning. It’s the trying to sleep with it is why I thought to ask now.
