        Nah, she sent me that -25 below shit. CC, you can have it back. I won’t be mad. Promise.

    • Miranda

      CC I thought about you when one of my coworkers complained that it was so cold that it hadn’t even gotten to 40 degrees all day.

      I thought “crazycanuck would slap you over that statement.”


  • Alma98

    Aww all my clubbing songs, those were the days lol.

    • Aquagranny911

      This makes me laugh so much! We got youngest grandson one of those plastic hoops when he was about that age because he tried so hard to play with his older brother & the “big boys” & was way short of the mark.

      When we set it up, of course smart ass older brother just popped one in from above. Little boy was so pissed that when his brother again grabbed the ball, he tackled him around the knees & took him DOWN!

      Little boy then got the ball, through the hoop & kept yelling: “Yeah me!”

      • GN

        he tackled him around the knees & took him DOWN!

        lol lol lol lol!!!! That is adorable.

        • Aquagranny911

          You think that’s funny? The best part was when older brother jumped up & started yelling: “He cheated, that’s a foul!”

  • TresL

    I brought this over from the previous thread in response to Rikyrah’s comment on the GOP plan to steal electoral votes from the 2016 Dem candidate.

    Even though I am not much of a Tiger fan these days I remember after he won the Masters, they changed the course. And decades ago when Bob Gibson was such a dominant pitcher batters could not hit him, they changed the height of the mound. I am sure there are other examples throughout history but those immediately came to mind. Makes you wonder that if you truly are the superior race, then why do you change the rules whenever a person of color excels at your game playing by your rules? Just asking.

    • rikyrah

      Tiger was one of my examples..

      will NEVER forget it.

      ALLLLLL those White players win the MASTERS, and AUGUSTA IS JUST FINE.

      ONE Black man does it..

      and suddenly…it needs to be ‘redesigned’.

    The GOP over played their hand with this electoral vote rigging scheme. The media and people from across the spectrum are coming out against this rigging scheme and everyone is talking about it. Now we are seeing republicans come out against the idea because it looks so sad and pathetic.

    • JojoRaze

      It looks toosperate and overreachin

      • jziglar

        Right ! I don’t know why they thought that this would be a smart idea because they should have known that there would be a backlash especially after their voter suppression efforts.

        This is just to blatant and ridiculous.

    Update: Fox spokeswoman confirms that it’s “parted ways” with Sarah Palin. Details to come.

    • GN

      I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if a few hundred pinheaded racists cried out and then were silenced. #SarahPalinFired

    • JojoRaze

      She has been irrelevant since she said blaming people like her for gabby giffords’ shooting was blood libel. She made it about her instead of the people involved in the shooting.

      • nellcote

        “blood libel” also has a very specific historical meaning. It was shocking to hear her use it in her context.

    • AxelFoley

      To be honest, the other day I was thinking that we ain’t heard from this broad in a minute. And now, Fox done cut ties with her. And nobody batted an eye.

      LOL, yeah, time’s up for sister Sarah.

    • Even the rubes have had enough. That aborted bus tour through Palin’s America a little over a year ago should have told her something. Now its official.

    American Idol Accused of Racist “Scheme”

    Nine black former contestants are planning to sue the hit show.
    A group of black ex-contestants are joining forces to file a lawsuit against American Idol, saying they were forced off the hit show due to racism.

    According to TMZ, NY attorney James H. Freeman, representing nine former Idol contenstants from different seasons, submitted a letter to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission asking for permission to sue Idol and FOX.

    • GN

      I’ont know about this one…the EEOC is doing important work like suing companies for using credit as a bar to black and brown workers obtaining employment. American Idol? Suing to get onto reality tv? Not sure I agree with that at all…kind of known that these shows are ratchet and like to show people at their worst for drama and sensationalism, and I’m saying this as an increasingly embarrassed consumer of these shows…

    • Alma98

      We’ve known this for years, Project Runway is the same. I say poc need to boycott these shows.

    • I don’t know about this group, but I remember how AI screwed Frenchie Davis in the show’s second season. They disqualified her because she posed for nude/lingerie websites BUT in the first season they didn’t disqualify a white contestant who was a stripper.

      • Town

        They also had a good time parading Trenyce’s mug shot all over TV.

  • GN

    WOW. WOW. Just a couple of years ago, PBO was being called everything but a child of God for this historic legislation. Hitler…plutocrat…socialist…corporatist…blah blah blah. Well look at ObamaCares now:

    Majority Of Americans Think Implementing Obamacare Should Be A ‘Top Priority’ In Their State

    The verdict is in: Americans don’t just support Obamacare — they consider implementing its central tenets a “top priority” for their state legislatures.

    A new Kaiser Family Foundation/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation/Harvard School of Public Health poll finds that strong majorities of Americans consider implementing Obamacare’s statewide insurance exchanges and Medicaid expansion either a “top” or “important” priority for their state…


    ObamaCares has a disproportionately positive impact on black people because we’re disproportionately uninsured and more likely to receive less than ideal care (items like this is why I take seriously the numerous POUers who pointed out during my critique of the inaugural speech that PBO has *delivered* which is more important than words; that’s simply true).

    I’m sorry that public perception hadn’t caught up to the quality of ObamaCares in time for the 2010 midterms, but I think that the increasing recognition of the good which Dems did will have an impact in 2014. Here’s to hoping and praying for that.

    • This is what Republicans feared. By 2016 any politician that runs against Obamacare will be committing political suicide.

    – —Ex-Detroit Mayor Jailed For the Weekend — –

    – —– – – Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is paying the price for multiple parole violations. The Grio reports that Kilpatrick has been jailed for the weekend.

    “Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will spend the weekend in prison as a penalty for 14 parole violations, a state corrections spokesman said Friday. When given the opportunity to waive the formal parole violation process and instead serve three days at a Detroit lockup as punishment, Kilpatrick agreed, said Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan. Kilpatrick is to report to the Detroit Reentry Center Friday afternoon and will be released from custody early Monday,” said the Grio. “He is on parole for a 2008 state conviction for obstruction of justice and still owes Detroit $855,000 in restitution. He’s required to report gifts and other income as a condition of his parole, something officials say he has failed to do on a number of occasions.”

    Corrections officials also said that the former mayor faced additional penalties if he did not follow the terms of his parole.

    Obama to Unveil Immigration Reform Next Week

    “Obama’s proposals would largely be based on a “blueprint” the president put forth in a policy speech he delivered on the border near El Paso, Texas, in 2011, but which never made it into legislation.”

  • MonieTalks

    I know it has become a broken record around here, but so many folks are disturbed to their core that PBO and FLOTUS do things their way. In an industry that has long overlooked the contributions of, and failed to adequately represent Black women, it is quite funny that you would hear shrieking from some, since FLOTUS is one of the most revered fashionable women today.

    Oh this writer is on breakdown mode…pathetic ass.
    Bridget Foley’s Diary: Fashion Pound Puppies

    …How does Michelle Obama get a pass on the ridiculousness surrounding her inaugural wardrobe selections? The whole thing would be merely silly and undignified if it weren’t so disrespectful of the time and resources of others, some of whom have little of both at their disposal.

    • Alma98

      wahhh! wahhh! Haters gonna hate.

    • Using her logic, then designers shouldn’t participate in Fashion Week because it’s a possibility buyers won’t purchase their clothing.

      Bridget’s just mad because a Black woman is the fashion standard AND she’s giving shine to designers of color that have been ignored.

      • qosine

        It was a Sheriff Babeau from Pinal Co, AZ, refusing to carry out any federal regulations now or future re: background checks etc. He has some standing here.

        In 1997, Printz v. United States, a lawsuit against the federal government which alleged that portions of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act violated the United States Constitution, because they comprised a congressional
        action that compelled state officers to execute Federal law.[2] These portions were interim provisions until a national
        instant background check system for gun purchasers could be implemented. In a 5–4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the provisions of the Brady Act in question were, in fact, unconstitutional.[3]


        From Printz v. United States
        “The Federal Government may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program. It matters not whether policy making is involved,
        and no case-by-case weighing of the burdens or benefits is necessary; such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty. . . . ”
        18 We note, in this regard, that both CLEOs before us here assert that they are prohibited from taking on these federal responsibilities under state law. . . . .

        It is arguably correct with regard to Arizona law as well, which states that “[a] political subdivision of this state shall not… prohibit the owner-ship, purchase, sale or transfer of firearms,” Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 13–3108(B) (1989).


        • Aquagranny911

          OMG! Baby Boo Boo! Look up little baldy on the Phoenix New Times web site.

          I can’t believe he’s trying for national media attention. Yes, I can! These gumsnuggers are totally shameless.

          • nellcote

            Isn’t he the one that came out last year?

          • Aquagranny911

            He didn’t exactly “come out” he got caught out & with an “undocumented” young guy from south of the border.

            This is the main reason why this piece of scum did not try to run for a Rep or Senate seat which he had been angling for.

            There is a whole bunch of ugly around this man, including his time working in ‘reform’ school for boys back east.

            I can’t believe he is wagging his ugly tail on national TV. He must be thinking for running here in AZ again.

    Anyone else watch Ed Schultz tonight?

    Guess who’s all up in heading this GOP trying to rig the vote bullshyt?

    Mr. Slave Catching Coon Voter Suppression himself Ken Blackwell.

    The only time State Senator Turner held her tongue in the entire interview was when Ed asked her what she thought of Blackwell being involved in this…

    “THAT SAMBO” was on the tip of her tongue, but she knew she was on national tv.

    From The Maddow Blog:

    When we talked yesterday about Virginia Republicans’ scheme to rig the distribution of electoral votes in the GOP’s favor, I noted the 2012 breakdown under the right’s preferred model: President Obama would have defeated Mitt Romney by 150,000 votes, but when it came time to distribute electoral votes, Romney would have won nine votes to Obama’s four.

    It led Maddow Blog reader (and my friend) Gerry Canavan to do the math and note an interesting fraction.

    It’s true: Obama won about 51% of the popular vote, but would have won a little over 30% of the electoral-college vote under the new Republican model. That means, as Gerry noted yesterday morning, Democratic voters would be counted under the GOP plan as about three-fifths of a vote when it comes to the electoral college.

    Where have I heard that fraction before?

    Yes, Virginia Republicans began the week by spending Martin Luther King redrawing state Senate district lines in their favor, taking advantage of the fact that one of their colleagues — an African-American civil rights activist — was away from the chamber for the inauguration of the nation’s first African-American president. They then adjourned in memory of Confederate general Stonewall Jackson

    So I was doing some googling about your President, and came across a birther site LMFAO. These people are coocoo for cocoa puffs.

    Your President is Muslim, no he’s Hindu, Maya is not really her name, there last name is really some Hindu name. Some even suggested Anne really isn’t dead. It was all so convoluted my head was spinning.

    – – –The fight to prevent hostile takeovers of public education goes national — –

    – — —-The fight to save public education and retain local control of those schools against hostile takeover attempts (such as the current takeover attempt in Michigan by our very own Gov. Rick Snyder explained in more detail here from an earlier post) has now attracted nationwide attention. On Tuesday, Jan. 29, representatives from school districts around the country who find themselves under siege in much the same way as Detroit Public Schools are joining together to participate in a hearing in Washington D.C. to air their grievances at the highest levels and make sure their story gets told – and acted upon.

    —In short, it appears a growing number of citizens are not only aware of the ongoing Republican attempt to affect the kind of totalitarian change on the state level that they were unable to achieve on the national level during the 2012 elections, but that they refuse to sit still and let it happen. On an even more basic level, when you threaten a parents’ control over the education of that parent’s child and effectively tell them there is nothing they can do about it? Yeah, well, that tends to kinda piss parents off. And not just in Detroit where being pissed off sometimes seems like a way of life.

    Watchin’. . . .

    Let’s be fair. Jindal didn’t transform the GOP into “The Stupid Party” all by himself. He had plenty of help. Mostly from other wingnut politicians eager to pander to a base themselves made stupid on a steady diet of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Tea Party propaganda.

    – —Five Reasons Bobby Jindal Is Responsible For Transforming The GOP Into ‘The Stupid Party’

    – ——-Days after Mitt Romney lost his bid for the presidency, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) kicked off a publicity campaign for his 2016 run, casting himself as a different kind of Republican. In a series of interviews, statements and op-eds, Jindal called for reform within the GOP, embracing a more moderate message that could appeal to middle class voters.

    In a Thursday night speech to the Republican National Committee, the Louisiana governor urged his party to give up its obsession with Washington budgeting and “become the party of growth,” not austerity. –SNIP – he said and laid out “seven things that I believe we must change if we are to amass a following worthy of our principles.” Principle 4 states that the GOP “must stop being the stupid party”: – – -[LOL –WHO IS DIS PHOOL?? — -F’REAL??? -LOL ]- –

    – ——SNIP- —
    But before Jindal begins giving advice to members of his own party, he might consider how his own record is alienating mainstream voters:

    1. He permits Louisiana schools to teach creationism.

    2. He allows state employees to be fired for being gay.

    3. He has signed bills to intimidate women seeking abortions. Jindal compared women who have gotten abortions to criminals.

    4. He seeks to dramatically cut taxes for the wealthy, increase taxes for everyone else.
    5. He refuses to provide health care for Louisiana’s poorest.
