    I mean after having that snarled-face, uptight, warmongerer, evil human being known as Dick, the masses are just collapsing in pure and utter joy and relief, admiration, respect, euphoria, humanity, love, peace, soul, optimism, and gracious appreciation of the man who stands by our POTUS day in, day out – VP Biden, Uncle Joe, our President’s right-hand man, wise elder, adviser, statesman father-figure, you name it.

    O/T But I if I live to be a 111….I want to go out like this!

    “Europe’s oldest man—a 111-year-old Sikh, who celebrated his birthday just weeks ago—has died. In his lifetime, Nazar Singh spent almost as many years in India as he did in England. Born in a village in British India’s Punjab in 1904, Singh spent his childhood on a farm. From when he was 10, Singh started working in the fields, helping out with sugarcane, rice and wheat crops. In 1934, Singh and his brother moved to Sindh—now in Pakistan—in search of work. They spent a year building bunkers for the army during the Second World War. The move was temporary, and the brothers eventually returned to Punjab. In 1965, Singh emigrated to England—at the age of 61. For the next 24 years, he worked at a metal workshop in Walsall, an English industrial town, before moving to Sunderland in north east England in 1989. Singh died in India, where he moved back with his family in January this year. He was suffering from multiple illnesses. “It was early hours on Saturday (June 20), just before Father’s Daytold the Guardian. “He has had pneumonia but he was a fighter,” he said. “Unfortunately, his time has passed.” During his lifetime, Singh lived through a long list of historical events: two World Wars, the Great Depression, India’s Independence, the Partition, and 9/11…cont”

        with a gimlet 😀

        “In an unmistakable Punjabi style, Singh had a peg of whiskey every night. Even for his birthday last year, on June 8, he apparently sipped on some whiskey—and then posed with a mug of Stella Artois beer.His favourite tipple helped him live long, according to one of his sons, Chain Singh Gill”

        Stella is my favorite brew….

    President Obama defies lame-duck expectations after big wins.

    If it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.

    If on the other hand it can’t make a noise and waddles and then falls over, it’s a lame duck.

    And a president at the end of a second term with a highly partisan Congress ranged against him is as lame a duck as you will ever see.

    So maybe it’s time to rewrite those immutable rules. Because on Thursday the president looks anything but lame. The signature legislative achievement of the Obama years was to drive through the Affordable Care Act – or Obamacare as it is more widely known – that has given health insurance to millions more Americans.


    I bet no-drama Obama is high fiving anyone and everyone in the White House – that is how big it is.

    Add to that the TPP trade deal with Asia. That is huge too. Congress (yes, do you remember back in November after the midterms when everyone was predicting that nothing would ever get done again, and how it would be total gridlock until after the elections in 2016?) last night gave Barack Obama ‘fast-track’ authority to complete what the Financial Times describes as “the most ambitious regional trade deal in recent history”.


    But last November no one would have thought we would have been here. Another bit of the legacy in place.

    And then there is Cuba, where the US and the Caribbean island seem on the cusp of resuming diplomatic relations after a recent history that brought the world the closest to nuclear war in many of our lifetimes. And on the subject of which, it maybe that the P5+1, led by the USA, is on the edge of concluding a deal with Iran that – if you buy the Obama administration narrative – will prevent Tehran from realising its nuclear ambitions.


    It is too soon to write anything decisive about Obama’s legacy. But if the Supreme Court had ruled against him on Thursday, and if the trade deal had faltered – then there would be many writing his political obituary.

    ok, so I’m thinking SCOTUS may hold off until Monday for the SSM decision.

    Maybe not if the President wasn’t gonna be in Charleston tomorrow. I think they want to announce that while the Prez is at WH

      I really don’t think the SCOTUS consider anyone or any event in relation to their decision announcements. Thus said, my predictions of what would be decided when in the past 2 weeks have been abysmal – so I will say – it will be tomorrow or Monday. 🙂

    France’s interior minister has ordered a ban on the low-cost car-sharing service UberPOP after a day of nationwide protests by taxi drivers.

    Bernard Cazeneuve said the service was “illegal” and ordered police and prosecutors to enforce its closure.

    His announcement followed a day of sometimes violent protests by French taxi drivers, who say the US-based firm Uber is stealing their livelihoods.


    same thing happened/happening in india too.

    I was watching Rachel list all of POTUS accomplishments so far and it just brings such happy, incredible and victorious memories. And it got me thinking, not being sarcastic about this or anything, but I can honestly not think of any accomplishments of the Clinton administration. I mean it is the administration that gave us don’t ask don’t tell. I cannot think of a landmark accomplishment. any one?

      Such sadness amid the celebrations of today – will never understand how anyone could have done this – I can only hope he mentions every last person/event/book/ or whatever that led him to believe he was working to save the USA.
