    Dean Heller just voted with the Dems to block DHS funding.

    It has failed

    Got home to good news about Rikyrah and progress on Iran deal. Good news all around.

    It appears Ed Schultz and Mike Pampintonio want to blame PBO because BP is not paying the Gulf Spill Claims.

      Every pundit in the US blames the President for anything that happens on the planet. I’m waiting to hear them blame him because the moon has phases or because mars looks red. How they have wasted what could have been the rise of the US to real exceptionalism during the past 6 years. I truly weep.

    MSM/GOP and the AIPAC lobby are going all in on attempting to smear PBO. First they claim PBO doesn’t love America. It is hard for me to respond to such childish, stupid bullshit, but somehow the media is treating it as a serious question, Would be nice to have those soul-less enough to ask such a stupid question to give evidence of their love of America (White skin does not count). Now, for reasons I cannot comprehend, the issue is PBO’s Christianity. For starters, I cannot think of another situation when a sitting two term President has had his religion questioned. In fact, I don’t remember anybody being questioned or doubted about their professed faith. GWB lied this country into war, ordered the torture of people and was responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians (all things that Jesus would not do), did the media ever question his Christianity? Did the media cover Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith during his run for the Presidency? What makes this so freaking weird is the fact that the folks questioning PBO’s Christianity and patriotism are among the least Christian or patriotic people around. The GOP, with an assist by the msm, are repeatedly engaging in hostage taking that puts the country in real danger, yet their patriotism is never questioned. The GOP with its worship of money and hatred for the poor is the embodiment of the exact opposite of Christ’s teachings, but their Christianity is never questioned. In addition, I hear this Bibi guy is not Christian, so why should we listen to him. Kidding aside, I know all this nonsense is designed to sully PBO in an attempt to raise doubts about PBO being on “our side” as he negotiates with Iran. It won’t work (outside the Washington bubble), but this foolishness is really tiring.

    A Louisiana man who was coming home to check on his children on Saturday night accidentally shot and killed the 13-year-old boy who was babysitting them, The Advocate newspaper reported on Monday.

    Adonis Forbes, 25, was planning to stop at home briefly before heading back out for the evening, Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely told the paper. But while there, he attempted to fix his gun and ended up accidentally firing it, McKneely said.

    The shot struck the babysitter, Murrain Hawkins, in the abdomen, according to McKneely. The paper said when police arrived they found Forbes trying to care for Hawkins.

    The teen was pronounced dead after being taken to a local hospital.

    Forbes was reportedly charged with negligent homicide.

    BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.

    The question Monday from Republican Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.

    Dr. Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.

    The committee approved the bill 13-4 on a party-line vote. Barbieri, who sits on the board of a crisis pregnancy center in northern Idaho, voted in favor of the legislation.

      As someone mentioned earlier on TOD, I would love for PBO/SOS Kerry to announce a Deal the same day that Nut n Yahoo is scheduled to give his propaganda talk to congress.

        That would be beyond great for so many reasons including sadly, the need to stop the disgusting Boehner gambit. The body language in all the photos looks energetic and open. I know pictures can be deceiving but I’m thinking positive!!

        HF, that would be absolutely magnificent! By the way, it won’t be just “PBO/SOS Kerry and the U.S.; rathe,r it would also be the UN. Europe, Russia and China signing on on the nuclear deal with Iran. As far as I am concerned, Bibi Netanyahu is hurting the interests of the Israeli people.

    Missus LL update.

    Excuse me while I hit my head with a mallet.

    She called the place that was supposedly hiring her. The administrator said, “Yes, we did get your fingerprints, but someone else’s came in first, so we hired her.”

    And the missus was concerned about screwing THEM over by continuing to look for offers. So, she’s going to get in touch again with her friend who is a nurse in a facility in Long Beach and schedule a time to go down there.

    This, children, is why I drink.

    • February 23, 2015 at 7:05 pm

      This lil’ boy puppet is just regurgitating crap from some very manipulative and vindictive adults around him…sadly, when he’s 30, and PBO is being LIONIZED by the history books and pretty much everyone else, his only recourse will be “well I was 12, and didn’t know what the hell I was talking about.”

    • February 23, 2015 at 7:10 pm

      I guess he will be signing up to go to war in six years…..

    • February 23, 2015 at 7:40 pm

      I read about this little punk, I shouldn’t said that, I read about the 12 year old this morning. What the hell do he know about somebody being weak, listening to the family. Sound just like right wing bull sh!t. If Obama were so dam weak on ISIS and Terrorism then why haven’t his ass got blown to pieces. Excuse my english please.

    So it looks like McConnell might try and pass a clean DHS funding bill but is snow saying he’ll also file a bill to prevent funding PBO’s Executive Order on immigration. But didn’t POTUS think ahead about all that and make the order self-funding? Or am I completely confused about this?

    • 109 donna dem 4 obama
      February 23, 2015 at 6:59 pm

      I believe the user fees covered the funding of the EO.


      “This agency is entirely self-funded through the fees it collects on various immigration applications,” the committee said in a statement. “Congress does not appropriate funds for any of its operations, including the issuance of immigration status or work permits, with the exception of the ‘E-Verify’ program. Therefore, the appropriations process cannot be used to ‘defund’ the agency.”

      • February 23, 2015 at 7:14 pm

        Yeah, that’s how I remembered it. Thanks, Donna.

        I guess McConnell has something else up his sleeve or maybe he’s just being willfully ignorant.

      • February 23, 2015 at 7:18 pm

        Maybe McConnell does not want his stupid party legislators knowing that until after they pass the clean bill. Or maybe McConnell can be counted with the stupid group.

      • February 24, 2015 at 2:52 am

        Great explanation,Donna. This is how I also understood it. McConnell is playing a Kabuki game. He doesn’t have the courage to tell the tea bagger crowd that there is no way really to stop the President’s executive orders on immigration. So he has to play the thing out in this game of political theatre.

    That is what I have been saying.
    The peice is behind a paywall so I can’t read it.

    Only the Republicans can talk about love of country, fighting terrorists, fighting ISIS and talk about not funding Homeland Security. Possibly putting the country in danger.

      That’s ALL the Republicans do. They talk about these things. Their actions demonstrate their hatred towards all those things.

    BWD alerts us that Sen. Feinstein and Sen. Durbin are arranging for a meeting with Bibi and the dems when he is in US.
    The better move was to ask Netanyahu to reschedule or postpone his speech.
