    Healthcare, bin laden, the auto industry and even a nuclear deal with Iran those things alone do not drive the GOP insane. Imagining that President Obama has a nine-inch Johnson is what really drives them insane. In our overcharged sexualized society nothing enthralls us more than sex, or the thought of someone having sex. And yet sex, conspicuously absent in every conversation about President Obama is the one thing that has not been trotted out against him. In those quiet rooms that Romney speaks so highly of, it is not hard to imagine a conversation taking place that involves President Obama and his cartoonish oversized member walking around kicking ass and taking names to the dismay of every conservative in America.

      You are a better saver than I, LL. We even get money for phone calls and I blow through that even though I have a cell.

    MARCH 28th, 1956
    Churches Observe National Deliverance Day of Prayer in Support of Montgomery Bus Boycott

    // ……………………..

    As a means of publicizing and encouraging support of the ongoing boycott and other anti-discrimination efforts, Adam Clayton Powell organized a National Deliverance Day of Prayer on March 28, 1956. Rev. Powell, a black minister and congressman from New York, urged participants throughout the country to “pray for the deliverance of all who suffer from persecution and we for the salvation of all who are afflicted with racial prejudice.” Rev. Powell initially proposed the day should include a one-hour work stoppage, but other religious leaders rejected the idea as unnecessarily disruptive.

    Well, Ms MP, you have certainly been feeling frisky today, letting everyone chase around trying to catch up with you! 😎 runnings!

      Early birds. Worms. Sun has crossed the equator (well, technically the Sun stays in one place), just watched the 1st quarter moon rise heading into a Total Lunar Eclipse on Easter Weekend (more on that later) and have already filed my tax return. (I’m sure I’ll pay more than the 1%). So I figured I may as well take 1, 2, 3 and 4, just for fun! Earth Hour already happening for some of you, it’s a nice effort. ❤

    Courtesy of the Civil Division’s Consumer Protection Branch

    For decades, the Department of Justice, led by the Civil Division’s Consumer Protection Branch, has protected the health, safety and economic security of the American consumer. Indeed, since its creation more than 40 years ago, the Consumer Protection Branch has worked tirelessly to combat all types of consumer fraud.

    But as two of our most recent cases show, fraudsters have become more sophisticated. It used to be that fraud schemes depended on the willingness of unwitting consumers to hand over their hard-earned savings in person or through the mail. Today, the interconnectedness of our electronic banking system means a crook just needs to find a way to acquire one piece of information—your bank account number. Once he has it, and a means to access the banking system, your bank account—and your money—is in his hands.

    Thanks to banking rules designed to prevent money laundering and other illegal activity, American banks generally don’t do business with people who are trying to steal money from consumers. But fraudsters figured out that they could gain access to the banking system indirectly, through a middleman called a third party payment processor, because they realized some banks would not look past the middleman to evaluate what the fraudster was doing. And other banks, even if they did find out what the fraudster was doing, would choose to look the other way while they continued to collect fees in exchange for enabling the scheme.

    But just as bad actors continuously adapt to modern technology, law enforcement must adapt to protect consumers. Recognizing this new and serious consumer fraud problem, in 2012, career prosecutors at the department proposed a focused effort to disrupt these illegal third-party payment processor schemes. The new approach was informally dubbed “Operation Chokepoint”—a recognition that choking off access to consumers’ bank accounts could stop numerous fraud schemes at one time and protect more people from being victimized.

    Former Independence, Missouri, Police Officer Indicted on Federal Civil Rights and Obstruction of Justice Charges
    Acting Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division and U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson of the Western District of Missouri announced that a federal grand jury has returned a four-count indictment against former Independence, Missouri, police officer Timothy Runnels for violating the constitutional rights of a minor who was in his custody and obstructing the subsequent investigation into the incident.

    According to the indictment, Runnels continuously deployed a Taser against the minor while the minor was on the ground and not posing a threat to Runnels or others. The indictment also charges that Runnels deliberately dropped the minor headfirst onto the ground while the minor was restrained and not posing a threat to Runnels or others. The indictment alleges that the minor sustained bodily injury as a result of Runnels’ actions and, with respect to the first count, that the offense involved the use of a dangerous weapon. The indictment also charges Runnels with two counts of obstruction of justice for filing a false police report concerning the incident and for making a false statement to Independence Police Department investigators regarding the amount of force that he used against the minor.

      some feminists were critical of the issues that the First Lady championed and called them soft issues that were not political enough…

      Nutrition…Health…exercise of our children…her influence was so great …she brought healthy food to schools…and for the first time children’s obesity rates dropped…….. in addition she encourage many folks, including children to start gardens….she started the first ever Kid’s State Dinner featuring the dishes that the children created…and now…she is championing the cause of Education…with #ReachHigher…#LetGirlsLearn…

      The Feminists were wrong…

      Our First Lady has tackled meaningful issues that impact on girls and family…with GREAT Success…

      BRAVOOOOO!…to the AWEsome FLOTUS

    MUST READ the reply comment that wins the day:) Good reply to ANYONE that thinks they owe nothing to no one…


    The reply to the guy that said it’s HIS restaurant he can do what he wants because he did EVERYTHING himself (delusional fool)

    Lysander Sylier · Top Commenter
    ““Well, I feel okay with it because it’s my place of business, I pay the rent, I’ve built it with all my money and my doing. It’s my place; I can do whatever I want with it.”

    You mean you built it by taking advantage of socialized road systems, water systems, electrical grids and other infrastructure with money that you made previously by taking advantage of said public systems to make a profit, presumably off of your fellow American consumers, some of whom were surely LGBT?

    You mean you built it under protection from laws created to help business owners that were put in place by legislatures, some of whom were LGBT, which were paid for by taxpayers, some of whom were LGBT?

    This is a problem with conservatives. They always believe that they’ve earned everything that they ever have on their own merit, without any help from anyone else, and are therefore entitled to not extend the same courtesy to other members of society that they have received themselves.

    Priceless and spot on.

      This is because they don’t actually know how their government works. Same reason they screech about keeping gov’t hands off their Medicare. Same reason they screech about shutting down the government. as long as they can still get their social security checks. Same reason they can call for troops to be sent around the world, and at the same time call for cuts to welfare and veterans programs – both of whom the military has heavy reliance. Why they can continue to vote for Republicans, and in the next breath, complain about how government does nothing for them… It’s pathetic.
