    How many more senators are needed for the Iran deal to be be veto proof?

      Were there any more Senators today? The count through yesterday was 26. That means they need 8 more to be veto-proof, or 34.

    TOD Family, there are a number of Democrats in CA who are still undecided about supporting the Iran Nuclear Deal. Need your help in pushing them for support. I just tweeted to all of them. Here’s a sample that you can use, or create your own… https://twitter.com/rchakras/status/634796080404688896

    Here are the twitter handles of all the undecided Reps:


    Thanks for your help!!

      Rep Jared Huffman (D) has been working extensively to gain the release of WaPo journalist Jason Rezaian from Iran. Jason is from the county where Huffman lives, and his family are his constituents. Since the decision is coming down from the Iranian courts any day now, I think once that is settled, then Rep Huffman will focus on the Iran deal.

        A group of us from Santa Rosa have a meeting with Congressman Huffman next week, we will urge him to support the deal. Good to know some of the back story on this.

    Does anyone know how I can find where PBO is speaking today at AIPAC?
    Link or call letters?

    The current cavalcade of losers running for president is worrisome and a bit sickening. Its still very early, and lots can and will happen i’m sure, but I can’t help but wonder if the media/news will find a way to sink even lower than imagined after cheerleading us into the Iraqi war, and what I thought was lowest of the low and their ebola scaremongering running up to the 2014 elections.

    I think they are literally willing to wallow in a gutter of their own filth (i.e. Trump) in order to get a GOP pres in 2016. #run joe run!

    It took a veritable army of Obamabots to stem the tides in 08 and 12, and I just don’t see that happening with either Hillary or Bernie… they just don’t inspire people and we know how dems need that extra push to get out and vote. The unicorn and pony brigade not voting in 2016 is what scares me most.

      The Republican Party has no one to blame but themselves for Donald Trump. The Republican Party should have cut off the racists loud mouth Tea Party, but instead they allow these racist people to take over their party. To be honest, there isn’t that much difference between Trump and the rest of the Republicans. Trump just yell out his racists B.S., the others whisper their racists B.S. out. They are all the same, a disaster for this country. Yes Trump want to make America great again, he want to make America white again.

      • 33 donna dem 4 obama
        August 21, 2015 at 4:02 pm

        I know! I watch both as well. As I said, they are adorable (while destroying that back yard) but can you imagine if those kids had been in that yard when they decided to pay that family a visit. Scary stuff!!!

          I said to myself “Yup, they’ll sleep good tonight” πŸ™‚

          The little girl in the video who’s floaties they are tearing up gets mad and starts crying. She did not want to share with the Mama Bear and her cubs πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      They have certainly made themselves at home! I suspect they had so much fun they’ll be sure to return.

      • 36 donna dem 4 obama
        August 21, 2015 at 4:01 pm

        And that would be my biggest fear. I kind of wish they had been caught (without harming them too much) and taken back to the wilderness or zoo or somewhere they and the public would be safe.

        • 37 vcprezofan2
          August 21, 2015 at 4:05 pm

          Yea, I was anticipating the video ending with the wildlife people coming in and giving them a professional escort from the property. I would never be comfortable with my children playing in that backyard again, and definitely not in that kiddie pool! 😦

            August 21, 2015 at 4:13 pm

            Of course the parents have thrown the pool, the hose and the floaters all away and probably fumigated the backyard.

            Our bears out here have been know to return to a place they like – over and over. Even when captured and taken up into the mountains, they come back.

                  You CA-ns are cagey about your animals, aren’t you? I was warned about snakes, but only after I’d already committed to the trip, and now you warn about backyard bears way after the trip! Guess who won’t be returning to the wild, wild west! :/

      Just arrived in Vegas. It’s 107 here. Had to comment on the bears. We just had one walk down our street two days ago. It’s fall and very dry. They come for food. We just learn how to be aware and stay away from them. Waiting for the rental car so doing a quick read of TOD to find out what is happening.

      I’ll tell ya that is one hell of an advertisement for the strength of that wee swimming pool. Much as I adore alllll animals, this would have given me serious pause.. would be building a really tall fence asap. I did not know bears could have 5 cubs.. poor mama has got her hands too full to even enjoy a spa day πŸ˜‰

    As reported, Jerry Nadler (D) from NYC, My congressman, is backing PBO and the Iran Deal. Here is why this is an especially big deal.

    According to the NY media, Nadler’s district is one of the most Jewish districts in the USA. Numerically, proportionately. Whatever.
    Yes, Nadler’s district is filled with Jews like me. Who worship the ground POTUS walks on and are embarrassed by and freaked out by Bibi the blood-soaked bully.

    Congressman Nadler backing this deal will resonate throughout the country.

    Nadler is standing with PBO and not with Schumer, Bloomberg and the rest of them. Happy days ahead, TOD.

      Trump isn’t crazy. He is a showman. He has studied the Press today and the political system. He knows marketing. He is using the Corporate Media…….remember, they wanted him for fun and ratings. Now, the Joke is on them and the GOPers. I have stated here before, I enjoy what the Donald is doing to the Press and the GOPers. My only concern is the psychological impact this could have on the Jittery Left.
      16+Trump running official under the GOP Umbrella with their record in a fair election could Never beat Clinton, Sanders, Biden, O’Malley. But with a Jittery Left community, Trump can indeed win, just like Reagan did in 1980. I hope not.

        Egg.Zack.Lee I want Trump to be the nominee for the GOP. The GOP deserves to reap the crops that bore fruit from their tree. Besides…there is no way in heck Trump will get anywhere near the Whitehouse.
