    GM, TOD. I want to bring over something I posted last night and with a bit more explanation. (I was on the treadmill when I posted it. Not easy to type on iPad when doing that.) 🙂 We were at the National (Christian) Radio Broadcasters Convention at the Opryland Hotel for my husband to do his interview. Here’s the rest of my story……….

    I have mostly lurked past two days. We made our trip to Nashville. Me–to check on my cousin. Husband–For his interview with Campus Crusade for Christ. (Also lined up some other phone interviews.). We walked all around the exhibit hall. At one point, he said, “It’s a little like a circus.” THEN……….soon as we got out of the parking lot, he said this: “I think what we saw there gives Christians a bad name.” I definitely agreed with him. We had a short discussion then dropped it until we were at lunch with the woman from UMNS who is working with him. (United Methodist News Service). Dave brought the topic up. The woman is obviously very liberal. We had a wonderful discussion. One would have thought my husband is a “flaming liberal.” What it comes down to is that he is turned off by the extremism of the religious right in social issues, but is ‘trying’ –my guess–to maintain his Republucan/conservative political stance. Hmmmmmm……….interesting times. 🙂

      It is not easy to turn all the way around and away from a lifetime of conditioning. But the more he sees how the GOP is a captive of the religious right, the more he will think about voting for Democrats. He may never call himself a Democrat, but that won’t mean he won;t for for them.

      Recieved my latest National Geographic yesterday. Fascinating article on the science denial going on in this country and why it is happening. Part ideological, part religious, part political and partly because, quite simply, many things that are scientifically true go against our natural instincts and what we see around us. Take for example that the earth goes around the sun. Yes, we know it is true, but that is not what our eyes tell us. Intersting study was done where scientifically trained people were asked a series of T/F questions about scientific truths. Even those who “know”, for example, that the Earth goes around the Sun, though they answered the question correctly, took longer to respond to that than to other, more empirically sound statements.

      Well worth reading. It also talks about how the internet has actually made it easier to deny science.

      GM TNmtnGirl.

      Thank you for reposting the video of your husband describing the inspiration and solace he experiences in the Appalachia Trail.

      Heartbreaking that your family received the devastating diagnosis of your grandson’s condition on your husband’s birthday. ((( TNmtnGirl family )))

      We have 18 months to gently coax the fire-breathers that maybe trickle down doesn’t work; that virtually all of the ills and unfairness they see around them now are directly attributable to the disastrous 8-year GWB/Cheney/Rumsfeld term.

      I hope that more Dems realize that fire-breathing on either side doesn’t work — it makes the other person, who might be persuaded over time, to feel attacked, become defensive and shut themselves down from accepting the truth about what has happened in America since 2001.

      The MSM, who deny that any side exists other than the NRA/Comcast/Kochs, allow these defensive people to delude themselves that life would be better if only we had a Republican President appointing RWNJ NRA/Comcast/Koch lobbyists on the Supreme Court. Shudder.

        Thank you, Arapaho. As I may have said here since it is my usual response: the thing that makes Walker’s death a little more bearable is that we know he continues to make a difference in lives, whether it is through my husband’s hiking or childhood cancer things that our family is involved in.

    The amount of publications and organizations mobilizing against Bibi’s speech to Our Congress is stunning. Form Boston Globe to AIPAC to anti-speech demonstrations in Israel, to prominent Israelis former heads of gov’t and police included begging Bibi to cancel. Mossad. Shin Bet.
    200 ex-IDF Generals made a video condemning Bibi and his idiotic plan.

    All To No Avail. Bibi will make this speech even if it kills him. A big NJ newspaper is calling for his defeat on March 17. Hoping and praying for him to lose. Hoping and praying is all we have left apparently.

    It seems the entire world is aligned against this hideous disrespect of the President of the United States.

    Except for John Boehner and his associates. Sheldon Adelson included. And whichever Democrats show up. Which so far seems to be most of them. Latest count is a total of 33 non-attendees. 4 senators included.

    We cannot stop this speech.
    I have accepted that. We have no party standing behind our President that I can see.

    Nita Loewey, a Dem Rep from NY has written to Bibi asking if he won’t cancel, then please can he arrange to have the speech be behind closed doors. No Cameras.

    A good idea but the point of the speech appears to be the public humiliation of the democratic party and its leader. After this, how do they think they will ever win anything again?

    If this is not a coup by the 1% then what is missing for us to call it a coup…

I wonder sometimes if they think the President is made of stone – the never ending attacks for no valid reason are disgusting.

    Well, Chuy Garcia has lost my vote for mayor of Chicago. He’s against the PBO library! First of all, he got his facts wrong: no one is “giving up park land.” It will be replaced. It would be a huge economic boon for that neighborhood. And damn, parks should be for more than just baseball teams. They should also be about culture, the arts, education, history.

    He’s an old Daley crony. Will he just replace Rahm cronies with Daley cronies? Is this what all this is really about? The old Chicago Machine wars?

    He could have said he wanted a better deal for the city or something. But no – it is being reported that he said he was against the library coming to Chicago, to “save the parks”.

    And I’m just waiting for him to be one of the whiners who says PBO hasn’t done enough.

    He just lost the AA vote. And mine.

    • 72 japa21
      February 27, 2015 at 10:15 am

      I hadn’t heard he was against the PBO library, which probably wouldn’t involve much park land anyway, but I know he thinks the Stephen Speilburg Museum should not go ahead. I still think we have a lot to read and digest. Of course, I can’t vote in Chicago, so my thinking doesn’t really matter.

      • 73 57andfemale
        February 27, 2015 at 10:56 am

        It’s the Lucas museum and he’s against that, too. However there was some controversy on the use of city funds and its prime lakefront location. This was new today – against the PBO library. What astounded me, japa, was the ham-handed approach. My God, our first black POTUS and our second IL POTUS in history. I know the neighborhoods are his thing, but there is significant city development and jobs attached to this project. You DO have to consider the stature of the city

      • 79 57andfemale
        February 27, 2015 at 11:00 am

        It’s reminding me of the Hispanic vs. AA fight for city power. Whoever wins the runoff needs significant black support. Rahm has pissed off damn near all communities. School closings hit the black neighborhoods hard. He’s not popular. But an ill-informed slap at POTUS is no way to win black votes. He didn’t say he wanted a better deal for the parks, he was against the library coming to Chicago. Come on.

        the anti-Rahm. It means less than outsiders realize, but there’s the meme.

        Has he been impressive, Linda? I don’t see much msnbc these days. I really wanted to be convinced because Rahm has been a real disappointment. But since the election, I’m not seeing anything that I like so far. And any Chicago mayor should want museums and the presidential library, or you are clueless as to how to run a big city.

            February 27, 2015 at 11:49 am

            Well, I was just in a discussion with two fellow Chicagoans. Garcia’s start was anti-Machine, but another friend says he’s tight with the recent Daley machine. I’m even confused, but if I don’t know something or find that I’m wrong I will tell you guys upfront. One thing is shaping up, however: Garcia needs to be more than platitudes and prove he can run and understand how to run this city. This is the consenus in the local news. Emanuel has to consider the neighborhoods more. And charter schools are NOT the answer to public education. His alleged “corruption?” Pales compared to Daley.

            However, Garcia not wanting PBO’s library is a big issue for me. It’s a win-win: status for the city, urban development, jobs. He’s also against the Lucas Museum. Now, many don’t want it on the lakefront but it would be part of the “museum campus” which makes sense. Even the Park organization that is against it, is against the location, not the museum.

            Still much to study……

      Most of the arguments and whining we hear now on immigration for example are about the timing of the promise keeping. Same thing happened when the emoprogs were whining about marriage equality.
      Who can forget the annoying bores who kept telling PBO “evolve already.”

          In midterm elections (Dems did well in 2008 and 2012). That and voter suppression, gerrymandering and control of the airwaves gives the GOP a sense of invincibility.

            February 27, 2015 at 12:04 pm

            All of that could be overcome if enough Dems voted. Look at the chart in the comment above. Dems do not vote consistently. Voter suppression stinks – but where is the DNC making sure that people can overcome the obstacles? And if we voted in sufficient numbers, there wouldn’t be these draconian laws. It’s an institutional problem, and Dems still decide whether to vote if they are in love with a candidate.

              February 27, 2015 at 12:14 pm

              I am agreeing with you, but the problem seems to be limited to midterm elections which is where Dems should concentrate their efforts. All of the damage occurred in 2010 and 2014. In 2012 Dem candidates got more votes than GOP, but gerrymandering rendered that advantage meaningless. In addition, voter suppression works that is why the GOP does it (there are not enough White Dems to compensate for the loss of AA votes lost due to voter suppression).

                February 27, 2015 at 12:24 pm

                With PBO as a candidate. I don’t think we can make general assumptions from 2008 and 2012. Democrats need to learn that this is a long game, and all it requires is that you effing show up every two years. Period. If there is voter suppression, then until we win back state houses, you find a way to get your ID and vote. THEN the laws and the courts will be changed. It shouldn’t be this hard, should, it Eric?

                One of the criticisms of DWS in 2014 is how little she did for GOTV. Sure, those of us on the email lists were told to vote. WE VOTE ANYWAY. Voter signup events, organization of GOTV – nonexistent. The situation sucks because of all the reasons you list. Okay, we start from where we are: how do we change things? We Vote.

            Agree that people should vote, regardless of their partisan beliefs, but the fact that MSM spins EVERYTHING as either Dems fault or “Obama’s Fault” is unprecedented.

            CBS radio network news is unbelievable, and lots of people in SoCal rely on local radio news for their news (with our long commutes and weather that is almost always conducive for drives) — cannot tell you how often I hear the radios in other people’s cars tuned to the LA @knx1070 news radio station.

    GOP takeover so complete they have no fear.
    They shut down government in 2013 and the price they paid was zero.
    They won almost everything in 2014.

    They stage an event to humiliate Our President and the Democratic party stands with the GOP. (latest count of dems who won’t attend Bibi speech is 34. Out of 46 Dem senators and 180+ dem congresspeople—-I don’t have the exact # of dems in both hoses but it is about 235. 34 standing up against GOP)

      Hi Vicki. I have noticed that you are very fearful of Bibi’s speech. I understand that it is disrespectful to PBO, but other than the disrespect and symbolism, what will Bibi’s speech achieve that has you so worried? I am being sincere, I really don’t understand.

        My answers to what will Bibi’s speech achieve that worries me include the following:

        Legislators already wary of Iran nuclear deal have their opposition backed up. Simultaneously, the American principle that The President leads foreign policy is undermined. In my view this is stripping away POTUS’ power which is why I use the word “coup.”

        Dems who have distanced themselves from PBO get to showcase their disdain for him. Their message is that bowing down to a foreign leader is more important than what President Obama has to say.

        Sheldon Adelson demonstrates how his money overcomes decency and common sense. The Corporate takeover of the government and the media continues apace.

          Thanks for breaking it down. Now I see you POV. I don’t see it as dire as that, but agree that it is disrespectful. I think more damage will be done to Israel because it is attempting to openly influence U.S. policy which, Black Prez or not, turns off alot of U.S. voters (fear of undue influence of Israel on U.S. gov’t policy was big reason Gore “lost” the election (or made it close enough for GWB to steal) by chosing Lieberman as his running mate. I think that those who are disrespectful pay a bigger price than those that are disrespected (PBO has been disrespected from day one and yet easily won reelection and has had one of the most impactful Presidencies in modern times). Eager to see how this all plays out and how Bibi is treated during the speech by Dems. I hope/think this stunt will give ordinary Americans the courage to voice opposition to the Israeli gov’t that did not exist prior to this provocation, that is why I have been saying that the real loser in all of this will be Israel, especially if they reelect Bibi.

      Only AJAM is reporting that most of the artifacts that were destroyed were plaster replicas.

        I’d heard yesterday than an artifact from 700 B.C. was destroyed. And do we think ISIS knew they were replicas? And isn’t the message the same? We will destroy anything and anyone who doesn’t believe as we do? It’s still horrific.
