    GE Folks!

    …the walk back begins (I noted last night that when Reggie Miller, Barkley, the NCAA, and Big10 Championship games boycotts started…this was inevitable. Today Seattle’s mayor said no state employees can travel to Indiana and now Angie’s List CEO (former Gov. Mitch Daniels 2004) campaign head said they would no longer expand thier HQ….Pence finally got the message…..can’t wait to see what his “clarification” language will be.

    OK, time to watch the Kentucky/Notre Dame game!!

    ‘Why I came to Birmingham’ http://s.al.com/IadDxJd

    By President Barack Obama, March 27, 2015

    “Earlier this week, I visited Birmingham to speak about what I call “middle-class economics”: the idea that our country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. Today, we are in a 60-month streak of private-sector job creation. Our businesses have added 12 million new jobs. Nationwide, the unemployment rate has fallen from 10 percent in 2009 to 5.5 percent today. Our high school graduation rate is at an all-time high. After five years of the Affordable Care Act, more than 16 million uninsured Americans have gained the security of health coverage. And in perhaps the most hopeful sign of all, wages are finally on the rise. This progress is a direct result of American drive and determination. It has been a long, hard road, but America is coming back…continued”

    OK, bbl

      Sorry, I have been on edge….couldn’t move away from the TV….what a game!! I was pulling for UK. I already had Wisconsin in my Final Four along w/ Duke & Virginia (who got bounced early by Michigan St.) I went 26/32 Rd. 1, 12/16 Rd. 2, 6/8 (didn’t have N.C. State & MSU) Rd. 3, now 2/2 & need Duke tomorrow to have 3/4 Final Four teams. I’m currently in the 99%tile out of 13 million brackets

    “LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Iran’s chief diplomat said on Saturday that he had had productive discussions with his European counterparts and that Iranian negotiators were ready to begin drafting an initial agreement on a nuclear accord.

    “I believe that France and Germany are serious about an agreement,” said Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister. “We are ready to draft.”

    • March 28, 2015 at 9:39 pm

      He sent the same tweet to SoS Kerry.

      I agree.

      • March 28, 2015 at 11:38 pm

        Bob, I too agree with this brilliant statement by Iran’s Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif. This world, which has so many insane and simple minded leaders, it’s so refreshing to see wise leaders like Mr. Zarif, SoS John Kerry and our incredible President.

    2. I guess the dumbass group wasn’t awarding anything this year.

    3. Unlike previous years, there was NO publicity for the 2015 event, held March 4. I wouldn’t advertise that, either.

    GE TODville.

    OMG, can WJC *be* any smarmier????

    I’ve mentioned before that I tossed and turned in 2008 at the thought of WJC rattling around the WH with nothing but time on his hands. (However, I was truly TERRIFIED at the thought of McCain/Palin at the helm as the economy nosedived.)

    Here’s the quote from the @nytimes article:
    “In September 2012, when Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, spoke at the annual Clinton Global Initiative gathering in New York, Mr. Clinton gave him advice backstage about how to appear in command when facing off against Mr. Obama in their coming debates.”

        This is one main reason why I am not on board with Hillary, her husband Bill. They played alot of dirty ball in 2008.

        The headline and the story are not a Match.
        What did I miss?
        I read through have of the article and the WJC’s and Romney’s ‘plotting exchanges” were not clearly defined. Oh well, helped or not, the lying Bishop got exactly what? A resounding defeat in 2012. Case Closed.

      yet another bill’s fuck up. pun intended.

    • March 28, 2015 at 11:37 pm

      Question…

      is there a law on those other states’ books that says that any business can discriminate against gay people if it is against their religion..

    • March 29, 2015 at 12:08 am

      Although the author has stated that other states have a version of this bill…my state of PA does as well…however my state does not get specific and say that any business can discriminate against gay folks….but the point i want to make is that the bill in PA was passed in 2002…it is now 2015…the landscape is different as it relates to gay rights, marriage equality…etc…the outrage you hear now is because Americans are not tolerating this hatred of gay folks….the mood and climate is different,

  23. March 28, 2015 at 11:39 pm

    Another BS law passed by Clinton…

  24. March 28, 2015 at 11:56 pm

    PA has such a law.re: so called religious freedom…but is does not give specific right to discriminate against gay folks…or any other folks…although the law is general….it does gives standing to sue the government to someone who feels that a particular law has infringed their religious freedom.

    Bill was passed in PA in 2002….many democrats sponsored that legislation..in fact 2002 the Dems controlled the State House…hell there was a DEM in the WH that passed such a law on the Federal level..

      • March 29, 2015 at 12:14 am

        all this goes back to who is in these state houses…and that goes back to who comes out to vote…esp in the mid terms…PA dodged a bullet…with getting Wolf elected…one of the few candidates who welcomed the President campaigning for him

        • March 29, 2015 at 12:22 am

          “all this goes back to who is in these state houses…and that goes back to who comes out to vote…esp in the mid terms…

          This is so true. We too in CA were fortunate to re-elect Gov. Brown and a majority Democrats in the CA legislature.

      Thanks amk – a somewhat disappointing final given some of the great games that came before. At 3/150 looked like NZ were heading for a great score – big collapse. Was good that in the semi and final we had to play the unbeaten teams from the group stages.

      So wish our politics could match our sport. NSW voted for their RW government – cause their premier is a good looking “nice” chap. They completely ignored his policies. Our state which has a minority govt is in trouble because one of the members of same is not such a nice chap & is about to be expelled from the labor party, reducing that minority. Sigh

        March 29, 2015 at 7:44 am

        Yup, it sure was a bummer final. The moment mccullum got bowled, the newzies went into a shell. But that doesn’t take away the fact aussies were great in all 3 depts, bowling, batting and fielding today. Except for a minor hiccup against the same team in the group stages, youse guyz were on a song all through the tournament.

        You have two great new talents in mitchell starc and steven smith. They will be the future standard bearers. And to think, your selectors were in ‘two minds’ about these two since they thought both were ‘soft’.

          March 29, 2015 at 7:56 am

          In between rambling on the TV commentators said the average age of the Oz team was 27 – at least 3 years below any of the other teams – bodes well for the future. Smith has had a great season – think he is in the running for captain. I’ve been disappointed in the cricket over many years – but this series showed the game as it should be played. Revived the interest.

            March 29, 2015 at 7:59 am

            Yup. aussies will be the team to beat for near foreseeable future. steven smith sure is captaincy material and he is a classy batsman in the truest cricketing term with a silky touch, unlike the ugly heavers.
