      Is that Chelsea’s reserve left-back?

      Thanks a mill LL for your post earlier, I saw that sign in a tweet yesterday and laughed heartily, you actually said exactly what I was thinking: “Stop making us be racists” is akin to “Stop making me beat you.” That’s precisely the logic, there would be no women beaters if there weren’t women who annoyed ‘their’ men in to beating them. I really want to move to Mars, like yesterday.

      And thank you Nerdy, you Legend!!!!

    The Vatican has told Catholics that they should not seek to convert Jews and stressed that the two faiths have a “unique” relationship.

    It is seen as a new Vatican attempt to distance itself from centuries of Christian-Jewish tension and prejudice.

    The document released on Thursday is not a doctrinal text, but a “stimulus for the future”, the Vatican says.

    It builds on the “Nostra aetate” (In Our Time) document which, 50 years ago, redefined Vatican ties with Judaism.

    Nostra aetate rejected the concept of collective Jewish guilt for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

      I love Pope Francis, and how he’s shaking everything up. He very quietly rolls through it all, knocking down old barriers.

      Well, gee, reminds me of our very own President Obama!

    Good evening Nerdy, Chips & TOD! Happy Thursday everyone. 🙂 Congrats LL on #1!

    WY pays the highest $ of any State, or among smaller States. We don’t have Access to ACA, and we have ONE insurance provider, ‘BCBS’, in the State. Not even the Largest Coal Mine in the County is providing Health insurance through an ‘Out-of-State’ Insurance company. The good insurance most companies used to cover employees, retirees, etc. is no longer here. That was really the only draw to get good doctors. Our Gov. tried to get a ‘moderated’ ACA in WY but the R Legislative branch voted NO! We have a huuuge (sic) deductible this coming year.

    Late this afternoon, the Mayor of the County Seat, posted a Statement. The comments under the Facebook timeline are an assorted lot. Since I caught as it was posted I thanked her for her wise decision. Now I’m a traitor to some neighbors. But I knew that. The County Commissioners haven’t made any statement.
    Have you guessed what her ‘Official Statement’ was concerning? Syrian refugees.

      So Ted Cruz defines himself as a “mini me” Donald Trump. He’s waiting to pick up all the bigots when Trump stumbles so that he can wear the mantle of the creepiest, most racist and most contemptible man in town. What a truly disgusting and utterly repellent creature.

        Ted Cruz is everything Donald Trump is only secretive and sneaky about it. He is hypocritical. I do not see one single
        GOP candidate that would not take the USA back to the bad policies of prior years as well as privatizing and giving big business or cancelling the citizen safeguard programs like Social Security, Unemployment benefits, food stamps, Federal Education loans, Medicare and Medicaid. Guess that is what Donald calls Making America Great Again.

    More on Claire McCaskill’s whine about PBO and what the misguided Senator calls POTUS’ lack of empathy……..
    I don’t think it is any different than the GOP complaining that President Obama doesn’t reach out to them.

    What the RW and the disloyal Left mean is that POTUS fails to recognize their inherent rightness, whiteness and privilege.
    By empathy they mean “do what we say.” “because it is our world, not yours.”

    Meanwhile, back in the real world, the senate and various committees are failing to fill seats on important committees, in courtrooms and in our consulates and embassies abroad. The effort to prevent President Obama from doing anything we need done continues, viciously.
