Tuesday Afternoon Thread: Meet Tasia Ann Thomas

I gotta admit, her take on “I Will Always Love You” gave me chills. She definitely has a great voice! Watch the video and share your thoughts!

From MassLive:

After her athletic career was sidelined by a diagnosis of scoliosis, 19-year-old Tasia Ann Thomas turned to another talent – her voice.

Thomas put her pipes to work, creating a mashup video of 2012’s biggest pop hits. Listen as she segues effortlessly through fun.’s “Some Nights,” Jessie J’s “Domino,” Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake,” Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain,” Maroon 5’s “Payphone,” Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and even PSY’s “Gangnam Style” – with a snippet of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”

In five days, the video hit 2 million views, Thomas told KTLA, drawing international attention. It’s currently at nearly 2.25 million views.

A competitive athlete, Thomas had been living in Oahu and heading toward a promising track career. After the diagnosis, Thomas moved to Los Angeles to try to pursue her musical dreams, even living out of her car at one point.

    FAU prof stirs controversy by disputing Newtown massacre

    A communication professor known for conspiracy theories has stirred controversy at Florida Atlantic University with claims that last month’s Newtown, Conn., school shootings did not happen as reported — or may not have happened at all.

    Moreover, James Tracy asserts in radio interviews and on his memoryholeblog.com. that trained “crisis actors” may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event’s true purpose: gun control.

    “As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends,” writes Tracy, a tenured associate professor of media history at FAU and a former union leader.

Instead of calling out the media he seems to be looking for some sort of coverup of something that I don’t want to read anymore to find out. It’s bad enough that he’s a tenured prof but reading the comments, he’s got followers.

    – —Since 2011, Three-Quarters Of Deficit Reduction Has Been Via Spending Cuts – –

    – — — Since passage of the deal to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff,” Congressional Republicans have attempted to portray it as the “last word” on taxes going forward. “The tax issue is behind us,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

    Democrats, meanwhile, have said that any forthcoming budget deal should be composed of equal parts revenue and spending cuts. But even doing that would mean the bulk of deficit reduction will have been achieved through spending cuts, because, as the Center for American Progress’ Michael Linden and Michael Ettlinger show, three-quarters of deficit reduction since 2011 has been due to spending cuts:

    Since the start of fiscal year 2011, President Barack Obama has signed into law approximately $2.4 trillion of deficit reduction for the years 2013 through 2022. Nearly three-quarters of that deficit reduction is in the form of spending cuts, while the remaining one-quarter comes from revenue increases.As a result of that deficit reduction, the projected rise in debt levels from today through 2022 has decreased by nearly 10 full percentage points of gross domestic product. In fact, under today’s policies, debt levels in 2022—as a share of GDP—will be only slightly higher than they are expected to be by the end of next year.

    – – – – — SNIP – – –

    – – – When McConnell tried to claim on ABC’s This Week that revenue was off the table, anchor George Stephanopoulos wasn’t having it. And the numbers show he was exactly right.

    Eva Longoria, George Lopez, Mario Lopez, Chita Rivera and Rita Moreno are among a group of prominent performers who will gather Sunday, Jan. 20 for “Latino Inaugural 2013: In Performance at the Kennedy Center.” Details of the tribute performance were announced Tuesday.

    Longoria, a co-chair of Obama’s inauguration festivities, is hosting the event. Additional performers will include Jose Feliciano, Melanie Griffith, New York City’s Ballet Hispanico, Coro de Ninos de San Juan (the San Juan Children’s Choir) and others.

    In a statement, the former “Desperate Housewives” star said the inaugural events will foster more Latino engagement in Washington.

    miranda – – -AHA — -THIS is the BACK STORY – – –

    — –Tsar Nicholas says:

    Odd that LaTourette didn’t mind the Republican label when he ran for and then won his seat in Congress for the better part of two consecutive decades. Back then being a Republican was OK for him. But now that he’s on K Street, running a PAC in addition to lobbying, and trolling for dollars, well, I think it’s pretty clear how to connect those obvious dots. The other irony about this announcement, which probably will be lost on LaTourette and of course upon the chattering classes, is that LaTourette somehow managed over nearly 20 years in the House, spanned by three presidents, to post a lifetime ACU rating of around 70. I suspect most moderates and “center-right Democrats,” whatever those are, assuming they even exist, would find that that’s a pretty f’n conservative voting record for a putative “centrist.” Go figure.

    – – —Moderate Republican Group Drops “Republican” From Name – —

    — – – –A group identified with the moderate wing of the GOP, and now headed by former Ohio Congressman Steve LaTourette, has taken steps to distance itself from the GOP:

    The Republican Main Street Partnership, a Washington-based group that has promoted moderate GOP lawmakers and policies, will remove the word “Republican” from its title and welcome center-right Democrats in 2013, Yahoo News has learned.

    The organization’s board of directors voted Tuesday morning to scrap party identification from its title and be known simply as “The Main Street Partnership.” The group’s new president, former Ohio Republican Rep. Steven LaTourette, told Yahoo News that he plans to begin conversations with Blue Dog Democrats and centrist groups in the coming months.

    The Abolitionists: American Experience

    Episode: Part One: 1820s-1838
    PREMIERENEW Five activists take an interest in outlawing slavery, although increasing violence raises doubts about the efficacy of the abolitionist movement.


    Episode: The Education of Michelle Rhee
    NEW During her three-year tenure as chancellor of Washington, D.C., public schools, Michelle Rhee battled with the teachers’ union and handled a cheating scandal within the district.

    • What is the real deal about Michelle Rhee? I’ve noticed that some folks do NOT like her.

      • nellcote

        Just being superficial here but she’s totally into busting the teacher’s union and she’s a huge proponent of standardized testing. Basically she wants to privatize public schools. Her claim to fame is her tenure as DC school superintendant where it turns out her highly touted test scores where a fraud. Frontline usually does a decent job of investigative reporting, I’ll be interested to see what they come up with.

        • Thanks, ya’ll. I’ll have to check out the Frontline special.

          I’m not well-versed in the whole charter school thing, but my spidey senses tell me that something ain’t right about it.

          • trose1

            On some radio program I heard the man who did the reporting speak abt the woman. It sounds like this is a must see. I guess she fired a principle on camera. She called a film crew to make sure the firing was documented by the film crew. I think I will watch or DVR for this scene.

          • nellcote

            She’s real big on self promotion.

          • GN

            Yikes. I can definitely see why she’d be so disliked in that case.

          • isonprize

            I’m not well-versed in the whole charter school thing, but my spidey senses tell me that something ain’t right about it.

            Your spidey senses are correct, Sepia. In a nutshell, charter operators take public money for what amounts to a private school that doesn’t have to have certified teachers or standard curriculum.

            Many claim to provide a better education, but years of study are showing that most privide the same education, and often, worse than the ‘regular’ public schools that they were meant to replace.

            In addition, unions are not used, for teachers, bus drivers, etc. siting ‘cost control’ yet, when parents have complained about substandard services, their children have been ‘counseled out’ or summarily sent back to ‘regular’ public schools.

            Don’t even get me started about how they ‘don’t’ educate children with special education needs.

            Also, charter costs have some magic accounting formulas. e.g. in Phila, the District may pay for building maintenance and transportation, so, on paper, the charter looks as if it is saving money. There have also been charters that have mismanaged $$ such that their directors are now serving prison time.

            One was even running a night club. (Yes, you read that right. Gettin’ it in at the schoolhouse!)

            My question was always “Why is there so much money floating around to be embezzled??”

          • BarbinAtlSouth

            All that, I totally agree – in regard to private charters. There are two good public school charters near me – both are part of the county school system & have the same accountability – and the students do really well. Seriously, they do really well.

            Downside? If the students don’t do well – they’re outta there. The question I’m looking to answer is if they will let the student come back via the lottery (that’s how you get in) the following year or any year thereafter.

          • isonprize

            Barbara. I grant you that there are ‘good’ charters. So, then my question is — Why not replicate what that ‘good charter’ school is doing for ‘regular public’ schools.

            The key is, public schools are supposed to take EVERYBODY! You can’t just kick out kids because they don’t ‘do well.’

            If it’s a serious discipline issue, or a special need that can’t be met, that’s totally different.

            But “she didn’t do well” is NOT a reason to kick a child out of what is supposed to be a PUBLIC SCHOOL.

          • BarbinAtlSouth

            I hear you and I thought the same thing (that was my child that got the boot) but the requirement is you maintain a 70 in at least 5 classes. Not hard to do, is it? My child has to learn everything the hard way (and yeah, trust that I know that I have some culpability in this as well).

            Bottom line, I get that they want kids that want to be there.

          • A night club??? Lawd!

            Barb – Ah, so there are private charter schools and public charter schools?

            There’s a lot to be said about charters. I’d love to explore this topic in a separate thread.

          • isonprize

    The tradition of the Cabinet dates back to the beginnings of the Presidency itself. Established in Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, the Cabinet’s role is to advise the President on any subject he may require relating to the duties of each member’s respective office.

    The Cabinet includes the Vice President and the heads of 15 executive departments — the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, as well as the Attorney General.

    The 15 Secretaries from the executive departments are appointed by the President, and they must be confirmed by a majority vote (51 votes) of the Senate. They cannot be a member of Congress or hold any other elected office. Cabinet appointments are for the duration of the administration, but the President may dismiss any member at any time, without approval of the Senate. In addition, they are expected to resign when a new President takes office.

    Over the next few days President Obama will be nominating his choices to fill the vacancies for his 2013-2016 Cabinet.

    Judge reduces Bradley Manning’s possible sentence

    FORT MEADE, Md. A military judge on Tuesday reduced the potential sentence for an Army private accused of sending reams of classified documents to the WikiLeaks website.

    Col. Denise Lind made the ruling during a pretrial hearing at Fort Meade for Pfc. Bradley Manning.

    Lind found that Manning suffered illegal pretrial punishment during nine months in a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va. She awarded a total of 112 days off any prison sentence Manning gets if he is convicted.

    Manning was confined to a windowless cell 23 hours a day, sometimes with no clothing. Brig officials say it was to keep him from hurting himself or others.

    The judge said that Manning’s confinement was “more rigorous than necessary.” She added that the conditions “became excessive in relation to legitimate government interests.”

    Manning faces 22 charges, including aiding the enemy, which carries a maximum of life behind bars. His trial begins March 6.

      That seems fair. He was treated horribly but that doesn’t cancel out that he committed crimes against the country.

        Given the fact that he admitted he was gonna kill himself the guards were right in denying him clothing. It ain’t like he was in Soledad prison.

      • GN

        Emos, led by GG and Baby Jane, claimed that Manning was tortured and that turned out to be their usual bullshit and hyperbole. Not doubting the judge’s fairness, but I don’t find Manning that sympathetic. Many 100% innocent people faced far worse conditions and ill-treatment in jail.

        • nellcote

          I don’t find Manning sympathetic at all. But I can’t excuse ill treatment by jailers no matter where they are.

          • GN

            I hear you, and I don’t excuse it either. But I don’t trust the reporting about this story because of the previous claims of “torture” which were shown to be without any merit whatsoever.

    • rikyrah

      LOOK. he was in the military. he knew the rules. he broke the rules. fuck him.

      • Tafr

        Manning thought he was special. I hear the unicorn left claim that he broke those rules out of principle. I call bull shit on that.

        You know this may make me a cold bitch but I could care less about the way he is treated. We will never know the damage he has done, how many lives he put in danger or worse. Then you have to ask yourself why would he do that? From what I read he was pissed about don’t ask don’t tell and his lover broke up with him. You know that really rubs me the wrong way considering what our men and women have gone through fighting these wars. People have had their families torn apart, they come home with limbs gone, mentally broken.

        Manning was never fit for the uniform. Too bad his stupid ass did not realize that before he took the oath. Oh well he knows now.

    – – – —Sergeant Horatio J. Homer broke barriers by becoming the first African-American police officer in Boston’s history in 1878, but over the decades his legacy was largely forgotten. While serving on the force for more than 40 years, Homer made efforts that led to five additional black men becoming officers. He died in 1923 at the age of 75 after living what the Boston Globe has described as a life filled with varied activities including music, politics, and a fondness for poetry.

    Yet this pioneering Renaissance man was laid to rest in a grave that remained unmarked until 2010, when a Boston police archivist and current department officer uncovered a record referring to “the first colored officer.” This finding kindled a new interest in Homer’s life.

    That year, the Boston police department and city officials publicly honored Homer’s life and marked his grave at the Evergreen Cemetery in Brighton. Unearthing Homer’s history also reconnected his descendants to his legacy, which had fallen out of the annals of the Homer family lore.

    Alabama White Supremacist Charged For Plot To Blow Up Black Classmates [VIDEO]

    A 17-year-old Alabama high school student, Derek Shrout, who was arrested last week for allegedly plotting to kill 6 Black students by blowing them up with homemade grenades, has been released on $75,000 bond, reports the Ledger-Enquirer.

    Shrout, known at Russell County High School as a self-proclaimed, White supremacist, was arrested last week after a teacher turned a misplaced notebook over to authorities where he had written that the bombs were “a step or two away from being ready to explode,” said Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor.

    “The first thing I wanted to know was if you did exactly what he wrote, would it blow up,” said Taylor. “And everybody that I’ve consulted with has said that it would absolutely blow up exactly the way he wrote it.”

    – — Florida Governor Inflates Cost Of Medicaid Expansion By 2,500% To Avoid Implementing Obamacare – —

    – – –Internal email messages uncovered by Health News Florida reveal that Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) is knowingly citing inaccurate cost estimates to justify his refusal to expand Florida’s Medicaid program. Though the governor’s office is fully aware that the numbers are wrong, Scott continues to use them anyway, the documents show.

    – Florida, which has one of the highest rates of uninsurance in the nation, could extend health coverage to about one million low-income residents by accepting Obamacare’s optional Medicaid expansion. But the governor — an ardent Obamacare opponent — has repeatedly said that expanding Medicaid would just be too expensive, claiming it would cost the state $26 billion over the next 10 years.

    As Health News Florida reports, however, that figure from Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) is inflated because it doesn’t take into account the full amount that the federal government will reimburse states for choosing to expand Medicaid. A more accurate analysis found that expansion would cost the state around $1 billion:

    But those numbers are based on a flawed report, state budget analysts say. A series of e-mails obtained by Health News Florida shows the analysts warned Scott’s office the numbers were wrong weeks ago, but he is still using them. […]

      These are basically some hateful bastards. What kind of person wants other people to suffer when that person has what the people need? And the means by which to give it to them?

      That’s just lowdown, mean and hateful.

      The Guardian published an article with several people arguing that pedophilia is just another sexual orientation. While it was definitely not an outright endorsement of child molestation, but it contained several very disturbing opinions about this topic. It was the article that alluded to pedophilia as another orientation next to heterosexuality and homosexuality. So how is anyone surprised that the far right would take it and run with it? I’m a liberal, and I’m not excusing dumb shit like that. Not saying that anyone else here is, but the root of the issue isn’t Limbaugh’s usual foolishness, it was The Guardian living down to his stereotypes.

    – – – –Jimmy McMillan, onetime New York gubernatorial candidate on the platform that the “Rent Is Too Damn High,” made an appearance on The O’Reilly Factor Tuesday night and had a shocking revelation to share: “I’m a former stripper.”

    McMillan and host Bill O’Reilly were discussing the recent news that many welfare recipients have been withdrawing funds from strip clubs. “Why would you go in a strip club when there are ATMs everywhere?” O’Reilly asked.

    McMillan responded that the fees were lower at certain ATM machines, which could be an inducement for people to seek them out. O’Reilly was incredulous: “Do you think, really, seriously, do you think somebody is going to walk into a strip club because just because they want to get their welfare benefits and walk out?”

    “Well, I’m a former stripper,” McMillan revealed, shocking the primetime host.
