    GM TODville, gotta run, but wanted to thank GCL and Carolyn for correctly assessing @abc’s erroneous report yesterday.

    If you’re at all interested on what it was like in #SanBernardino on Wednesday, beautifully crafted description:

      thank heavens that ABC got more information about the incorrect address on the visa application;

      it is not easy to know these things if you have not lived or visited areas that are resource-poor and/or lack proper planning;

      yes, a general description of the neighborhood in a community is something that comes close to a real/specific street address that the formal US forms require

    QUESTION: My PC keeps trying to get me to download Version 10 since it’s free, but I seen somewhere it states something about a small fee. Should I upgrade to 10 or stick with 8?

    Thanks in advance for an opinion 🙂

      LAWD! There’s more to this story than what is being reported right now. Where were the supervisors? How did other co-workers deal with the animosity between Syed and Nicholas? Did the tension between the two men affect their job performance or opportunities for career advancement? Did either man ever file a formal complaint regarding the other? Think about the fact that this may be happening right now in work environments across the country.

        The WHOLE Truth isn’t being told.
        However, the answer was not Mass Assassinations of many of his co-workers.
        I held my criticism until the Pipe Bombs.
        They Didn’t drop off their 6 month old as was reported. His Mother lived in the house.
        The 12 Pipe “bombs” in the bag were not filled with explosives.
        They did leave 3 taped Pipe Bombs with a toy car in the building. Thank Goodness, They were Never detonated. Their device failed to detonate.
        In Paris France, ONLY most of the information given were by the authorities.
        In San Bernardino, Leaks Rule. The FBI needs to stop the leaks from happening and FACTS Only should Rule for GOPers, US News Media and Opportunistic Dems will be on TV/Cable to Gin and Generate Fever-pitch Fears.

      This is insanity. Discussions about religious differences do NOT belong in a workplace. PERIOD!!! It’s unprofessional, disrespectful to others and in today’s world, can cause catastrophic harm. Unless you’re a minister, a priest, or a rabbi working in a place of worship, leave your religion at the door when you go to work. No exceptions!

    I just want to put in a good word for the Portland Timbers who will be playing tomorrow for the championship of the MLS against Columbus SC.

      hey, hey, Mr. Bill, if you were not such a dedicated person to the issue of socio-economic justice and if you had not worked so hard on helping the very marginalized get ObamaCare, I would have begged heavens to cancel your wish;

      you see I live in Columbus Ohio, very near to the Columbus Crew stadium …., so you know whose side I am on;

      but just for this once, I will be happy for your team to win …., because the nation owes you very much;

      best of luck Sir

    Just think we all worked so hard to get PBO elected twice to be POTUS and now these beautiful young children of the future had this beautiful moment of seeing for themselves this great President and First Lady in the Whitehouse. Now that is Joy for the Season and for generations to come. Imagine what these beautiful young minds will be telling their children and also making a great contribution to our world as well.

    PBO has made a beautiful difference in our country and in our world. No haters or evil threads words or deeds against our POTUS that are running through our nation right now will take our Joy away or the Joy that we can continue to give our support to POB and FLOTUS so that they will be able to give to children, families, and our nation during this season of Joy. Thanks so much, Chips for putting this up today. I love you dearly. HZ Thank you so much PBO. HZ
