  1. Mrs. R.D. is having surgery this morning for thyroid cancer. Keep her and R.D. and their family in your thoughts and prayers. She said they’re pretty sure it is contained and hasn’t spread so this surgery will get it.

  2. I was an American sniper, and Chris Kyle’s war was not my war

    “When I heard of the bigoted reaction some Americans had after watching the film, I was disgusted, but not surprised. Audience members are mistaking Chris Kyle’s view of the war as “the” story about the war… It’s sad that such a nearsighted portrayal of Iraqis has caused more people to fear Arabs and glorify violence against them.”

  3. SIX MORE WEEKS OF WINTER, according to Punxsutawney Phil.


    Everything is going as planned for Republicans. As the article states, the wealthy and well-connected people are not going to be affected by this – the average American is again – on the chopping block.

  5. Regardign the picture above – the sad fact is, there are STILL people wanting to spend trillions of dollars (additional money- remember Romney in 2012 campaign?) to go BACK to Iraq and then continue on from there in to Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and anywhere the Saudis and Jews want us to go to drop those bombs and spend our kids and grandkids’ futures

  6. This could impact the price of oil and gas —

    Union oil workers go on strike
    Negotiations between union, major producers apparently stalled

  7. giggles and grins … snicker

    • I only have one comment –

      I loved the Munsters because they provided hours of fun and comic relief.

      These Republicans are just plain Monsters and there is nothing fun or comic about anything these buffoons do and say

  8. Robert Reich —

    This morning President Obama sent to Congress a budget that includes a one-time 14% tax on the $2 trillion in profits big U.S. corporations have socked away abroad, in order to pay for upgrading highways, bridges, and public transit in the America. Republicans are already screaming the proposal is dead on arrival, but it’s a good idea – and it won’t be dead if more Americans understand the back story.

    That story is that global corporations based in the U.S. get all the advantages of being American companies — including aggressive protection of their worldwide assets through U.S. trade laws, diplomatic deals, and sometimes even military action — but avoid U.S. taxes by shifting their profits abroad. (Under current law, those profits are taxed only if they’re returned to the U.S.) Paying a one-time tax on those global profits in order to repair America’s infrastructure, so Americans can be more productive and competitive, is the least they can do. If congressional Republicans want to protect their big business patrons from paying their fair share, let America see them do it.

    What do you think?

    • I agree, but will the average person even 1) understand this or 2) care?

      • Sad to say – 6176

        1) Unless it is in a 15-second blip on their cell phone and in simple terms – they will not understand.

        2) Even if they did understand – Again – that 15-second blip comes into play. After that time has passed, nobody cares because we are on to the next 15-seconds
