      I used to be able to tolerate him as just an annoyance, but now I seriously can NOT stand him. I swear the other day he used the word “behead” in EVERY SINGLE sentence for five minutes. Idiot.

        I don’t even know what he’s in a panic about. ISIS?

        Ebola? He pretends to be all-knowing about Africa, since he was in the Peace Corps there, 150 years ago, I think, and takes vacations there with his family. If his topic is Ebola, guess he’s afraid he’ll get it on a plane ride.

        Truthfully, I don’t recall EVER being this cynical … not until GWB and his lot came along. Our country did a nosedive then, from which we may never recover, and many of us have fallen prey. Unwillingly. I’m just so sick of their stupidity, and I barely trust a word outta their mouths.

          JOB, your attitude is healthy and self-protective. If we allowed ourselves to get jerked around by the media, we would become as neurotic as they are. We know more and have a broader perspective than those who make millions pretending they have opinions that anyone cares about.

      • September 30, 2014 at 8:32 pm

        No, I’m concerned for their safety. I want to make sure that the tax-funded CDC has this under control before we let the dearhearts face the world again. Indefinite self-deportation, I mean quarantine is the order of the day.

          Well, I’d support that with bells on, so to speak. Self-deportation of the little dearhearts as soon as possible.

        Don’t know the details yet, but I suspect this won’t get a lot of play in the MSM for the following reasons.

        1. There’s no black person involved
        2. There’s no angle to blame PBO
        3. A gun was involved.

          ABC is reporting of Gun Shots.

          Yep…..the Media ignored the UPS work place killings last week, but the scared Us and reported wrongly on the OK case involving a Muslim Covert……and the Beheading. The guy didn’t own a gun. He had a knife, hence the beheading.

    Always such a pleasure to see President Obama. And our First Lady looks more beautiful all the time. What a powerhouse she is. Each day I just bask in the reassurance of them in the White House.

    I’ve been reading Rei’s accounts of the erupting Iceland volcano. They are an absolutely amazing people. It’s like the earth is being created new there all the time. She said some of Game of Thrones was filmed near her home and some of The Hobbit was filmed in Iceland. It would be so interesting to visit. Not now of course! Again, those in Europe or traveling to Europe should keep up with information. There is SO2 in the plume and it has reached parts of Europe at different times. The men and women gathering info at the eruption sites are so brave. The pictures are like a different world.

    The GOP must be in REAL danger of doing poorly in November…and the MSM is ratcheting up the fear, anxiety and distractions to a boiling point (while trying to engage in Republican PR)!

        I don’t know why she deleted it – she tweeted words to the effect that Chris Hayes ought to come clean and tell his viewers that he loves the Republicans and wants to help them get elected in November.

        Luckily I had it cached so I could copy & paste the tweet:

    A whole year ago today we were preparing for a government shutdown. And the ACA website was about to go live. LOL! And Ezra Klein was about to start his 3-month long doom & gloom amid MSM/GOP calls for Sebellius to BE FIRED… YET…Dems still won most of their seats in the November elections

    GOP/MSM are trying a slightly different approach now, but with the same motives…

    So a Liberian Man who came to US for a visit has tested positive for Ebola in TX?

    I am sure that he would get the best of care. Fox and CNN would drive the story, 24/7.

    They Live on Fear. So does Tweety on MSNBC.

    Great piece on Kos the other day. SPOT ON TRUTH about teabaggers: “Itโ€™s not a Tea Party. The Boston Tea Party protest was aimed at a Parliament where the colonists had no representation, and at an appointed governor who did not have to answer to the people he ruled. Todayโ€™s Tea Party faces a completely different problem: how a shrinking conservative minority can keep change at bay in spite of the democratic processes defined in the Constitution. Thatโ€™s why they need guns. Thatโ€™s why they need to keep the “wrong” people from voting in their full numbers.” . . . . So no. Itโ€™s not a Tea Party. Itโ€™s a Confederate Party. Our modern Confederates are quick to tell the rest of us that we donโ€™t understand them because we donโ€™t know our American history. And theyโ€™re right. If you knew more American history, you would realize just how dangerous these people are.

      This is one of the many reasons I don’t like @EzraKlein (I know, the article isn’t by him).

      Statistics can be skewed to present whatever POV you want.

      1) “Asians” comprise most of the world’s population, which includes everyone whose origin isn’t Africa, Europe, or Central/South America. So a pretty big conglomeration of geography, nations and forms of governments.

      2) The percentage of Asians in the US was pretty small to begin with, so any increase is can be expected to be in the category of “largest percentage increase of…” whatever.

      Where I live, the influx is almost entirely from South Korea. Fifteen years I routinely was the only Asian at a gathering — now I’m one of 10-20% of one.

      Japanese-Americans like myself are quickly becoming a minority within a minority, and yet in the 1960s when I was growing up, the stereotype was of “Japanese gardeners.” Immigrants often go into business for themselves in a field that requires relatively small start-up costs.

      It doesn’t hurt that the @latimes had a headline on their front page today that said Alaska is exporting oil for the first time in a decade to… South Korea. #AsiaPivot

      I was just saying that to my brother that Asians and Hispanics are the fastest growing here in California. With so many Asian women having babies in the USA then returning home these children are American citizens unless the law is changed.
