      “We warmly welcome this new process as a solid expression of continued political commitment by all Palestinian groups in the Palestinian national unity government.

      We strongly support and hope that this process expeditiously culminates in a sustainable ceasefire desperately needed for the innocent Palestinian civilians in Gaza, who have been suffering from indiscriminate killings since the beginning of the Israeli bombardment on Gaza.

      We welcome and value the substantial role played by the US Administration and appreciate the facilitating contribution by Egypt in hosting this new process.”

      Yet it always seems to come after Israel has bombarded Gaza. My paranoia says the former need time to regroup and decide where to go next.

    My TOD mornings are disrupted – part of the downsizing requires lawn instead of dirt to the street front – who’d have thought. So now the watering every morning (really pains me to use the water – but otherwise – dead turf). Quite therapeutic to wander around with a hose, gaze at the sky & actually speak to the neighbors – but now tis done & back to TOD.

    “There were those of us who thought that when Eric Cantor was defeated in his primary for re-election that he would leave office without ever telling John Boehner the location of the Mason Jar in which Cantor had buried the Speaker’s balls.” …

    Cantor did his duty to posterity. He passed along the secret of where the Mason Jar is buried. He passed it along to Ted Cruz.”

      Comment on the article: “Cruz hosted a pizza-fueled strategy session Wednesday night with some House conservatives…”

      It was held at Chuck-E-Cheese’s; unfortunately, there are no meeting-minutes as all the crayons were gobbled up by Gohmert”

      Brilliantly acerbic commentary by Pierce, as usual. I love the comment about the House being a home for the mentally infirm. Never a truer word was written.

        Pierce’s language brings forth many truths.

        I think these are people who refuse to use their mental powers – rather than they do not have any – which is such a disaster for their country.

        Tis the ones who vote for them that have serious mental issues.

    In a Yahoo News exclusive with Katie Couric, Ginsburg, whose recent dissent in the Hobby Lobby case pushed her Internet fame to new levels, said she is getting a kick out of her pop culture status.

    “Most of it I think is very funny. There is a rap song, and there is one using the words from the Hobby Lobby dissent. I haven’t seen anything that isn’t either pleasing or funny on the Web site,” the justice said, adding that she likes the Notorious R.B.G. meme. “I think she has created a wonderful thing with Notorious R.B.G. I will admit I had to be told by my law clerks, what’s this Notorious, and they explained that to me, but the Web site is something I enjoy, all of my family do.”

    I have not read this blog before, but I think he gives a very insightful comment. Well worth reading.

    “Obviously, if a large number of elected officials refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of the president, the country either falls apart or becomes ungovernable. Although we aren’t in any real danger of civil war today, we are back in a place where the legitimacy of the president has been rejected, leading to strife and a dysfunctional government. As I’ve said before, the Republican Party has ceased to be a party in the traditional sense. It is merely the vehicle for an extremist conservative movement that values its ideology above all else. It has been this way since the Republican takeover of Congress in 1994, ”

    “As stupid and comical John Boehner’s lawsuit against the president may seem, we shouldn’t be laughing. It is an escalation in the ongoing legitimacy crisis manufactured by conservative ideologues who feel that the end justifies the means. Our political system is practically ungovernable, and as the United States navigates economic inequality, the loss of its imperial power, and recovery from the financial crisis, the refusal of Republicans to ever accept the legitimacy of a Democratic president has been and will continue to seriously hamper our society’s ability to respond to its most pressing problems. Or as somebody more famous than I once said, a house divided against itself cannot stand.”
