    Jake Tapper, self-proclaimed Philly guy who’s now co-opting the merits of the whole city, a guy I cannot stand, asks Archbishop Chaput (in a previous interview) if they’ll offer a soft pretzel to the Pope and where they’d get the Philly Cheese Steak they’ll offer him, if they do that, and names the top competing places. Archbishop deflects the question, and thinks to himself, “This is what this juvenile’s asking me?”

    Speaking of soft pretzels out of Philly – while in the city, we used to buy them from lone street vendors who’d hand individual pretzels to you in your passing car in a small brown bag while you were traveling on Roosevelt Boulevard – not sure but I think they cost $1 each, a couple of decades ago. One of the best parts of the ride! When I worked across the bridge, one of our co-workers from Philly would do a “pretzel run” weekly, and we’d place our orders. Those pretzels, to me, were kind of like some of the “wonders of the world,” and nothing compares.

    This “life was good then” moment brought to you by my need to go eat lunch!

    Later.

    Important Read

    ******************

    It sounds crazy, I know, but this represents the true “dark side” of Boehner’s resignation: it is another significant step in the Republican party’s shocking withdrawal from our system of democratic governance. Specifically, it presages a doubling-down of the Republicans’ intentions to assert “negative control,” where government shutdowns, hostage-taking, and (the immensely dangerous) debt-ceiling fights threaten to become more determinative than electoral outcomes and a functioning government. As one Republican writer put it, the emerging Republican belief is that threats of government destruction combined with the inherent rightness of Republican beliefs “could be so strong (as Ted Cruz was of his proposal to defund Obamacare) that Senate Democrats, the Obama White House and the mainstream media would, for once, finally, this time, cave in and let the House Republicans have their way.” (And the use of the words “for once, finally” means “rightly,” “appropriately,” consistent with the “true” distribution of power.

        True. Here is the Wiki explanation on The POTUS Retirement:

        “The Secretary of the Treasury pays a taxable pension to the president. Former presidents receive a pension equal to the pay that the head of an executive department (Executive Level I) would be paid, as of 2015 $203,700.[4] The pension begins immediately after a president’s departure from office.[5] A former president’s spouse may also be paid a lifetime annual pension of $20,000 if they relinquish any other statutory pension.[1]”

      Internet access should be free everywhere in America, especially in poor and rural areas. There is no reason we can’t do at least this one thing for our young people, in particular. We need educated people to keep our democracy strong, which we’ve seen time and time again.

    September 27:
    “Astrological Commentaries from Bali. Hello everyone. There is a total Lunar Eclipse taking place at 02.52am (GMT) on September 28th at 04.40 Aries. Please note that this is one of a PAIR of lunar eclipses, the other taking place at 03.17 Libra on March 23, 2016. The placement of these eclipses are like a parenthesis around a major feature of one’s life. In this case the area has to do with relationships, most specifically the relationship you have to yourself relative to that which you have to others (it is Aries/Libra after all!). It is therefore very important for you to note the houses in your natal horoscope where this set of eclipses is taking place as the effects of these lunations will be experienced in these areas of your life. Thus if these degrees of Aries/Libra fall in your 11th and 5th houses for example, then the focus will be upon your relationships to groups, organizations, friends and their relationship to you; if the 1st and 7th houses are highlighted, then most certainly you are dealing with direct and intimate partnerships and your patterns of relationship within them, etc. These eclipses will be far more personal if you have a planet, a pair of the four major angles (Ascendant/Descendant; Midheaven/Nadir), or the Lunar Nodes within 5 degrees of these eclipse points. The situations which these eclipses describe will be under a fairly intensely focused “cosmic microscope” for six months, i.e. the period between these two lunar eclipses.
    An eclipse points to the ending of one set of circumstances and the beginning of another. Such endings and beginnings are described by the houses and sign positions of the Sun and Moon during an eclipse and are too numerous to outline one by one in a posting. But as I pointed out above, the general area of influence will be one of the relationship between “Me and You and You and Me.” “WHERE?” such relationships take place in your life will be answered by the house positions involved.
    With love and blessings to one and all, AO”

    • September 27, 2015 at 12:53 pm

      also …the Hill along with many of media…when they bring up the issue of the videos re: PP…nve neglect tomention that the videos have been proven false …that the videos have been doctored…

      Todays MSM…what are the good for??…they are good lies and distortions…

        True that. Every time it comes up, I want to scream at the TV, “Please do your job and point out the facts.” I know, shouldn’t expect any of them to do that. So d— frustrating!

      //”Atlanta (CNN)Two months after Bobbi Kristina Brown died under a cloud of suspicion that led to accusations of wrongdoing, authorities in Georgia say they now know how she died — but they aren’t saying. The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death,” the office said in a September 25 press release. “However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has been received Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public.” //

      WHY NOT?!?!??

        It is funny……that her PUMA supporters are not as bent on attacking other Dems this time around as they were ready to attack then Sen Obama.
        It is sad that they (PUMAs) are not even smart enough to be all out attacking the News Media and the Right Wingers who are jointly trying to derail her candidacy.
        She is speaking up more now. So perhaps, she is finally learning.
