Chat Away

True, #FederervsDjokovic are majestic, but they never had to play tennis while being ogled by a little green man.

Chat on!

      CONGRAT on the “GOLD” – you’re # 1 !!!

      EXCELLENT TWEET to Mr. Eugene Robinson; he has had “many opportunities” to point this out on the jokester morning show, but “always” ended up agreeing with the jokester and table of clowns to appease them, and I suppose, to keep his job.

      We all knew this on January 20th 2009, that a bunch of hateful, racist and incompetent imbeciles were planning and willing to destroy America because the black man occupied the “WHITE HOUSE.”

      Please have an AWESOME and WONDERFUL DAY with your family.

        Happy Sunday to you TrumpDog!

        Hope you are enjoying your day.

        The few times I heard Mr. Robinson say it on the morning jokester show, they (panel) beat him down for saying it, and then the jokester lands the final blow. By the time Robinson comes through, he is agreeing with the joke and the other clowns; yes, it both parties.

        Just pathetic………

    Federer is not messing around.

    Poor Djokovic. Every time the crowd cheers Federer, you can just see him giving them the middle finger on the inside.

    This match has the fifth set it deserves.

    “Roger, Roger, Roger,” chant the crowd as their adopted king steps up to serve for the fourth.

    The MSM will give the microphone to anyone who provides anti-PBO content. This is why John McCain and his lover were on Face the Nation this morning (and can get booked on any political show they choose). It is not about ratings (ratings have been going down as Americans tune out the propaganda) it is about the corporations using the “news” organizations they own and control to advance their political objectives. News divisions have always been loss leaders (i.e., not a source of significant profits). For decades news divisions were maintained as a public service. Today, news divisions are used to spread anti-PBO/anti-Dem propaganda in an attempt to influence political policy and elections. The money to be gained by corporations and the 1% thru a GOP return to power via tax cuts and lack of regulation, far outstrip any money generated via ad revenues or clicks. It is about the corporations using the “news” providers they control to convince the populace to vote against their own interests. To divert attention from real news that effect real lives (like the recent anti-woman Supreme Ct decision) by promoting bogus polls concerning PBO. It is not about ratings. It is not about “horserace”. It is not about laziness (finding real GOP scandals seems to be an easy task). I wish the explanation for the decay of Fourth Estate was so innocent. Instead it is a concerted effort by the MSM and the GOP to keep the American people ignorant and powerless. A concerted effort to convince the American people that their friends are their enemies and their enemies are their friends.

      “…. it is about the corporations using the “news” organizations they own and control to advance their political objectives.”

      As has been abundantly obvious since December, 2000, Eric. Thank you for your cogent synopsis!

        Thank you DF. I think that a silent majority of Americans sense something is wrong but cannot articulate exactly what it is. My hope is that by spreading the word, something will “click” in their minds and they will recognize the game being played. Perceptions can be altered and changed via a single conversation. Each of us, in our own way can make a difference in this world, if we let our voices be heard. We have truth, facts, logic and reason on our side. We will prevail!!! As Bobfr says “WE MUST”.

          I agree. Another thing maybe that can be done is to spread the videos of President Obama’s speeches when he goes around the country. People who don’t follow politics closely are rarely exposed to President Obama’s words without filter. Every week now he speaks at some venue, on economics, on the middle class, on education, you name it. Just spread the videos, among family, friends, coworkers, etc.. and while doing it, just mention that you think the mainstream media doesn’t cover the President very well. Nothing is more efficient than when people see for themselves the disconnect between what the President REALLY says and does and what is being said on tv.

            great idea…then they SHOULD get angry about the info that the MSM is distorting or just not talking about….people don’t like being lied to…and lying by omission is JUST as bad.

      So beautifully stated. Donna Brazile got it right on the Sunday show today; This Week With George Stephanopoulos, when they had the audacity to bring up the bogus poll that President Obama is the worse President.

      She simply stated; if I was President Obama, I would ignore this poll and any other poll for the next 2 1/2 years, and keep doing what he is doing, working for America.

      To even bring this BOGUS poll up, shows how the MSM is consistently trying to promote hate against this President. The unemployment rate is down {6.1%}, the Dow hits 17,000, wars are closing down, health care for millions, and we can go on and on about his accomplishments for what he has done to keep America alive.

      We don’t have to look far in search of; what does “IGNORANCE” look like, talk like and walk like? Turn on the TV everyday, and it’s up close and in person.

      2014 – VOTE…VOTE…VOTE…..

        Thank you Cindy. Happy Beautiful Sunday to you too;). That bogus poll (which has already been discredited) will continue to get airplay because it provides the MSM with a “shiny object” to divert attention from the Supreme Court anti-woman decision (which is a political liability for the GOP) as well as the positive economic news (which is also a political liability for the GOP). Just like chuck todd’s headline stating “PBO’s Presidency is Over” (which came out the morning following the capture of the Benghazi terrorist) was used as a “shiny object” to divert attention from the arrest.

    So Federer survived the 4th set from a 2-4 deficit? Wow. That was when I checked out. Wow.

    Au ⭐ for Doc Bobfr 😉

    Love the Week In TOD. The Parrot Human Art still makes me chuckle. Confession, I looked at the picture days ago and in a split second saw a woman. The beak/hand, head/face and the tail/leg instantly. It shocked me for I am always Not good in figuring these things out. I usually would blame my FOUR EYES. Thanks again. It made my day.

      With all of these great jobs numbers, I’m surprised the Clintons haven’t commented yet. You know with Bill being the first black President and all. You would think that one black President would salute another black President.

    The irony… http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2014/7/5/hobby-lobby-guantanamo.html

    Lawyers for two Guantanamo Bay detainees have filed motions asking a U.S. court to block officials from preventing the inmates from taking part in communal prayers during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The lawyers argue that – in light of the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision – the detainees’ rights are protected under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).

    The motions were filed this week with the Washington D.C. district court on behalf of Emad Hassan of Yemen and Ahmed Rabbani of Pakistan. U.K.-based human rights group Reprieve said both men asked for the intervention after military officials at the prison “prevented them from praying communally during Ramadan.”

    I smile just crept across my face…

    Blah! Send them back in body bags. Better yet, just dig a mass grave and spread Lime all over them.
    That’ll teach them.

    Jeesh. Compassionate conservatives my ass.
