    Majority Leader-elect Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said the Senate will hold an Obamacare repeal vote when Republicans take over the chamber.

    “Number one: We certainly will have a vote on proceeding to a bill to repeal Obamacare. … It was a very large issue in the campaign,” he told Roll Call in an interview published on Monday.

    Republicans will have 54 members in the new Senate to convene on January 3. Sixty votes will be needed to overcome an expected Democratic filibuster on a bill that repeals Obamacare.

    Though he spoke of a more cooperative and functioning Senate, McConnell insisted that Republicans “will go at that law [Obamacare] — which in my view is the single worst piece of legislation passed in the last half century — in every way that we can.”

      Linda, how nice to know that the Republican led Senate will begin by wasting their time rather than doing anything productive. Not only would it take 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, but it will take 67 votes to overcome a veto. So Republicans will begin by wasting time trying to hurt Americans. True to form. And people actually voted for this atrocity.

      Having spoken so openly and frankly to the American public, I do hope this flaming asshole is prepared to enjoy the public tar-and-feather ritual we will enact upon his sorry ass. I have stronger words, but will refrain.

    The 1st question…..Not about POTUS health…..but about Torture and AG new Rules?
    This once again, confirms that GOOD News for POTUS’ health for the WHPC are about Bad News ONLY in the Era of Pres Obama.

    What’s the matter with Missouri?
    http://www.kpho.com/story/27575556/vigil-for-asu-student-who-drowned-in-police-custody?autostart=true

    The mother and friends of an Arizona State University student, who drowned while in police custody, gathered to remember him Sunday night, on what would have been his 21st birthday.

    It has been six months since Brandon Ellingson fell off of a boat to his death, and Sunday night, for the first time, we heard from his mother

    Sherry Ellingson was happy to see everyone at Tempe Town Lake to mark the occasion, but it was also an emotional day for her as she explained why the family filed a lawsuit over Brandon’s death.

    “You have all been an incredible support to myself and my family,” she said during the vigil.

    Sherry Ellingson could not hold back tears as she talked about her son who died in May after being handcuffed by a Missouri State Highway Patrol Water Patrol officer for suspicion of boating while intoxicated.

    “He was underage,” Sherry Ellingson said. “He was 20 and a half at the time, so he knew he was going in. He didn’t question it. He got handcuffed, he was ready to go, and the patrol officer did not handle anything right from that point forward.”

    Sherry Ellingson said the arresting officer improperly placed a life jacket over Brandon Ellingson’s head and didn’t secure it before speeding away.

    “It was propped on his arms. He had no intention of securing him correctly,” Sherry Ellingson said. “The GPS said he was going 43 miles per hour.”

    Brandon Ellingson reportedly fell into the water and his life jacket came off. He slipped below the surface of the water and died.

    His family has filed a civil lawsuit.

    Good afternoon, TOD! Received this call to action from my local NAACP; request you call, fax, email, write both of your senators and request they support this bill. Thank you!

    “Urge Your U.S. Senators To Support Passage Of NAACP-Supported Death In Custody Reporting Act

    H.R. 1447 MUST RECEIVE US SENATE APPROVAL BEFORE THEY ADJOURN THIS MONTH OR IT WILL NOT BE RECONSIDERED UNTIL THE NEXT CONGRESS
    In December, 2013, the U.S. House of Representatives, by unanimous vote, passed H.R. 1447, the Death in Custody Reporting Act, and sent it over to the US Senate for consideration. The Senate must now pass H.R. 1447 before they leave for the year so that it can be signed by the President and become law. If it is not passed prior to adjournment, the legislation will die, and it will then need to be start the process all over again, and will need to be reconsidered by both the House and the Senate in the next Congress.

    For years, the NAACP has strongly supported the Death in Custody Reporting Act, which has consistently been introduced and spearheaded by Congressman Robert “Bobby” Scott (VA). This Congress it was also introduced in the Senate by Senator Richard Blumenthal (CT).

    This crucial legislation, which is budget neutral in that it will not cost the federal government any money, will go a long way to not only understanding the phenomenon of the deaths of Americans while in custody, but also may also begin to alleviate the environment of suspicion, concern and mistrust that currently exists in many neighborhoods, especially communities of color, across America today. The data collected will also help us craft, in an informed manner, future policies and legislation to address problems which may exist.
    The current lack of uniform reporting requirements has made it nearly impossible to ascertain patterns of how many, or exactly in what manner, people are dying in the custody of law enforcement.

    Although estimates suggest that there are more than 1,000 deaths in custody each year, some under very suspicious and peculiar circumstances, we have no standardized collection process, nor a national depository. Indifference to prisoner rights and the safety of those in custody has made scrutiny of suspected deaths a low priority, so such questionable and often disturbing causes are rarely investigated. The result, in addition to a loss of life, has been the contribution to a general mistrust of law enforcement by many Americans, especially Americans of color who are often disproportionately affected by contact with law enforcement.

    In addition to its most recent House approval in 2013, the Death in Custody Reporting Act was passed by the US House, with overwhelming bi-partisan support, in 2009 and again in 2011. Every time, it died in the U.S. Senate, although in 2011 it was sent to the full Senate by Senator Patrick Leahy (VT), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Unfortunately, the chamber ran out of time before it could be considered.
    We must strongly urge the US Senate to act as quickly as possible and pass the Death in Custody Reporting Act during the week of December 8, 2014.”

    A top lieutenant to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) doesn’t have enough conservative votes in his corner to stop Congress from passing a $1.014 trillion spending bill meant to prevent a government shutdown.

    “No, I don’t think he’s got the votes for this. There’ll be bipartisan support for this. There’ll be bipartisan opposition,” Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) said on Bloomberg TV. “There’s some Democrats that are very concerned about some of the authorization for Syria operations. There’s always folks on the right that are concerned that any bill, even though this meets the Ryan budget goals, they would prefer to spend less. I get that but at the end of the day I think the votes are there, the agreements have been made and it’s very bipartisan because remember the Democrats still control the United States Senate.”

    But in the House, Cole said, Democrats votes won’t be necessary to pass the bill.

    “I don’t think we need them, Cole said. “I think a lot of them will vote for it because they broadly support parts of the bill. Remember this is a compromise arrived at with a Democratic Senate so there were Democratic concerns at the table and the Democratic president has to sign it so he certainly has some leverage as well.”

    This also encourages me, to see Christian leaders following what they should be reading in the Good Book:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/06/ferguson-white-christians_n_6272282.html

    “It’s time for us in Christian churches to not just talk about the gospel but live out the gospel by tearing down these dividing walls not only by learning and listening to one another but also by standing up and speaking out for one another,” said Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.

    Other white evangelicals issued similar pleas.

    “I weep & pray for his family,” tweeted Danny Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, the day before he led a prayer for justice at his school in Wake Forest, N.C. “I beg our God to bring good out of this tragedy.”

    “’Love your neighbor as yourself’ means you picture yourself being choked and surrounded by five men while you say, ‘I can’t breathe,’” tweeted Scott Slayton, a white Southern Baptist pastor in Chelsea, Ala. “

      What was interesting for me to read so many comments that talks about black on black crime and Blacks represent 13% of the population and commits 90% of the crime.

      Finally I came across one person who posted a link with one word. She wrote “lies” and then linked to the fbi crime site http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2012/crime-in-the-u.s.-2012/tables/43tabledatadecoverviewpdf

      I wish more people would respond in that same way.

      Basically she was saying… stop with the deflection, we have an issue..we need to fix it.

    Good Southwest Morning TOD’ers!

    I’m having an issue and I hope someone can help me. I have an iPad Mini. When I use it to come to TOD and a few other sites, the connection drops after a bit, particularly if I attempt to expand size or I click on a link. It happens mostly in the evenings and also at other sites that are heavily photoed. I don’t know if either of those things matter, but those are the only similarities I can think of. Needless to say, this is highly frustrating. I would really appreciate any help that y’all can give me!

Ready for a big change I decided to go for a current asymmetrical haircut with one side very short and the other to my chin. I also decided to have a few strands of fuchsia and purple on the longer side. My kids may think I have flipped out, but believe it or not I like it and think it is fun.

      Meta,

      I mentioned to LL last night that what troubles me is that our low temps are way above average this year.

      My zip average low temp this time of year is 39F, but it hasn’t dipped below the low 50s the entire Autumn, and most days’ lows have been in the upper 50s or even into the 60s, which is typical of summer low temps.

      I’m grateful for last week’s rain (steady rain all day Tuesday) and there’s more predicted for Thursday (yay!) — but it shocks my system to walk outside in the mornings in December and not be cold.

      • December 8, 2014 at 5:07 pm

        I sure know what you mean. We are expecting a big storm on Wednesday through Friday – some are predicting very strong winds and potential for a lot of damage – but today is like spring. I’m basically hard every very cold when I venture outside.

          Hope the wind doesn’t materialize — have seen uprooted trees when it’s both rainy and windy — I guess we’re spoiled in SoCal — it’s either/or for us rain, which in turn brings us Santa Ana winds, but very rarely both, knock on wood.

      Sorry, meta, but the last line of this letter really irked me–“we challenge you (President Obama and AG Holder) to restore our faith in American justice.” The two people in the US who are working the hardest on this issue are President Obama and AG Holder and they do not need to be challenged by Harvard or anyone else. I would have appreciated it if the Harvard Law school community had challenged ITSELF to restore faith in the American Justice system by being civil rights lawyers, running for District Attorney and raising awareness among all levels of the legal profession starting with students and ending in the corrupt right wing of the US Supreme Court. In fact, as one of the nation’s leading law schools, Harvard could issue a challenge to law schools around the country, inviting all of them to begin a dialogue on racial justice in the US and encouraging all students to pursue the cause of justice in their careers, rather than money. I’m sure the President and AG Holder will be gracious in their reply, but I would be tempted to tell them to pound salt.

        jackieg – you and vc know just what I’m thinking and you two explain it so much better than I.

        While I think it’s nice that we write to the President, I just think WE the americans should be doing the heavy lifting. We should be seeing the biggest Voter Registration push going on at each of these protest sites. The US Post Offices have the forms all year round. We should be holding up signs saying “If you don’t like what the Sheriff &/or Prosecutor did – then VOTE THEM OUT.

      • December 8, 2014 at 5:28 pm

        I agree about the attitude of expecting POTUS to be the one to do it all. I was just posting it as an FYI because they decided to add their voice. But they DO have a lot of power to make change themselves, as you put it so perfectly.

        What puzzles me is that these very special, smart, highly educated, African Americans would fall into the same trap that emoPutins do — to make demands of the President and his Administration.

        They have first-hand experience with what the President has said since he first became a community organizer — that its the work that matters, not how long it will take.

        “‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”

        I’m also surprised that they haven’t learned lessons from the LBGT and Dreamers “demanding” that they be taken care of *right now*!!!!

        It pains me to see that young people who can carry forward President Obama’s vision cannot see that PBO and AG Holder are the hardest working people in the federal government, and that AG Holder will head an “”Institute of Justice” after he is no longer AG.

    Dakota, saw your question/frustration. 57’s answer is likely the cause. Will tell you that that same thing happened on my old iPad. The other thing that iPad often did was just return to my apps screen. Got a new iPad last year for Christmas and have seldom had those issues with it. It does take TOD longer to load than most other sites, but I’ve learned to be patient……..well, most of the time. 🙂

    The co-owner of a Missouri bar says he didn’t mean any harm by offering a “Michael Brown” shot special Friday night.

    Local TV station WDAF reported that Mug Shots, a bar in St. Joseph, Mo. whose motto is “where sarcasm is always free,” advertised a “Michael Brown” special of six shots for $10. Local residents protested at the bar after a photo of the advertisement circulated on social media, according to the report.

    “It’s not meant to cause any harm,” the owner told WDAF on Saturday. “I should have thought a little bit more about it before I made it a shot special.”

      “he wished to remain anonymous to protect himself and his family. He added that he stole the idea from other bars in the area that referenced Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo. back in August, and got a “good response” from it.”

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — A police interview with a key witness was not provided along with the thousands of documents released after a grand jury decided to not indict a Ferguson police officer in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

    An Associated Press review of the records released by St. Louis County prosecutors confirms a report by KSDK-TV that a transcript of an interview with Dorian Johnson, who was with Brown when he was shot, wasn’t included.

    The two-hour interview was conducted by the FBI and a county police detective.

    A spokesman for Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said he couldn’t explain the discrepancy.
