    vf, I am so touched. Thank you so much.
    love your tags. haha

    It’s been fun to be on this blog with all of you. Sometimes it’s hard being the lone liberal, but then you get me all ticked off and I jump right back in, or else you crack me up and make me forget about our differences.

    Big hugs and thank yous.

    Happy Birthday Rosehips! Enjoy your day!

  3. tellitlikeitis says:

    Rosehips we would never want to change you. We just want you to look at things from a different point of view.

  4. tellitlikeitis says:

    Enjoy your Birthday!

  5. VotingFemale says:

    Dear… the blog would get pretty boring with no point counter point…

    Each and every one of us is passionate about America and politics.

    The more we debate the more we move closer together… for we each read and see the other side’s POV.

    The majority of Americans want what is best for America… sometimes it is not clear what that is and is not.

    The pendlum swings between left and right and for the most part the result is balance over the long run.

    I am for balance…

    Happy Birthday, sweetie!

  6. samiam60 says:

    Happy Birthday Rosehips and many more. Watch out for the dead fish floating down the river. lol

  7. tellitlikeitis says:

    Does everyone like my new avatar photo?

  8. rosehips says:

    thank you tellit, I really appreciate your acceptance and bd wishes too. **)

    I am having keyboard issues and some letters and symbols will not compute in upper caps. That is the second time this has happened in a week….

  9. rosehips says:

    thanks vf!

    I agree that balance is good. I hope we can find about a dozen more libs to join us here. lol

  10. m2 says:

    Oh look at that, everyone is over here!

    Happy B-day!!!!!

    I wish I was going tubing on the river!

  11. m2 says:

    lol at the note… “where ever I go you’ll be there”…

  12. rosehips says:

    thanks sami and lol @ the dead fish floating. you are a kick.

    I will of course be going with the flow. I don’t care if some people would regard me as a dead fish. I intend to be very much alive.

  13. samiam60 says:

    Nah Rose you would be more like a Beautiful Mermaid I am sure. 🙂

  14. m2 says:

    a tubin’ mermaid!

  15. samiam60 says:

    Ya M2 a Tubin Mermaid might just be a little sexy lol

  16. rosehips says:

    thanks m2. We are having our dog days here and there is nothing better than a slow float on a hot day. the water temp is perfect, almost warm but not quite and so refreshing. And the Kettle is one of the cleanest and biggest rivers in the area. It is the one that people flock to and tubing at this time of year is a favorite activity.

    The Columbia is big and beautiful and is actually a lake/resevoir (lake roosevelt) where it is closest to me and it is a very popular tourist destination, but unfortunately it is contaminated and not only that in late summer people who swim in it get swimmer’s itch which I believe they contract from ducks. Ewww…

  17. tellitlikeitis says:

    yea! tubing is cool. I havent gone for years but I enjoyed it.

  18. m2 says:

    are you gonna hook the tube to a boat and go tubing?

  19. VotingFemale says:

    M2,

    To stamp out freedom of speech of those ideas we do not agree with is to stamp out our own freedom of speech.

    While Rose and I agree on little, politically speaking, we agree to disagree… and that is how, in my view, it should be. I fought the iCry iTrolls on this hammer and tong who sought to silence those with whom they did not agree… and Rosehips backed me up on it and got hammered by many of those radical iTrolls… I will never forget it.

    m2 says

    lol at the note… “where ever I go you’ll be there”…

  20. rosehips says:

    tellit, I do like your new avatar.

    speaking of tazers, I believe they should restrict them. I’m all for tazer control. lol

  21. samiam60 says:

    Rose I must throw this one out there though, Are not intertubes made of Oil products and thus a fossil fuel. Will they not leave a footprint on the river which could result in human itching? These are all good questions you should be asking your lovely liberal self.

    All kidding aside I do hope you have a most spectacular day Rose. Happy 29th birthday again.

  22. tellitlikeitis says:

    The saga continues in Iran.

  23. rosehips says:

    lol @ the tubin’ mermaid.

    m2, no boat, just floating with the current. It has become almost too slow but there are a few places where there are little rapids but they are pretty gentle compared to what they are earlier in the month or last month. They are still pretty fun and I am not one for it being too dangerous because I have been there and done that and although thrilling, it strains the heart. lol

    There unfortunately is really a short season when the water temp and the current coincide.

  24. VotingFemale says:

    Ok… back to writing the second blogpost for today… there are so many subjects that are all popping at the same time… drives me nuts to pick one over the other! ARGGGGG!!! lol

  25. m2 says:

    I know. I am seeing ppl imploding on ireport…
    The Socialists really have created a lot of insecurity amongst their ranks… if ppl don’t learn to think for themselves- they cannot take the departure from media messaging/socialist agenda… and they fold in and kaboom!

    I was lol-ing because it’s like Lavern and Shirley or something. Like a sitcom!!
    ha ha ha

  26. VotingFemale says:

    Rose… don’t let them sucky little sticklebacks get ya in the fanny!

    hahahahahahahaha

  27. m2 says:

    I’d like to swim, but since it’s 70 degrees every day the water is about 45. Blegh.

  28. samiam60 says:

    M2 you are too funny.

    M2 says:

    I know. I am seeing ppl imploding on ireport…

    ha ha ha

  29. VotingFemale says:

    It has always been that way between Rose and me.

    And it drives some people totally nutz… especially the rabid Obama worshipers… which Rose has never been.

  30. tellitlikeitis says:

    VF, You don’t have to always agree with the message but the rabid liberals always want to attack the messenger to try to discredit the source.

  31. rosehips says:

    sami, lol @ the environmental impact of tubing. Yes everything has an impact. sigh. The tube I have is one I got at a yard sale. It was new in the box and it is made for duck hunting. I used it for the first time last week. It’s pretty deluxe. It has a canvas and nylon outer cover and the inflatable inserts are made of vinyl, I think, which of course is a petroleum product, right? So although I will be traveling on the renewal energy of the Kettle River, my trip will be dependent on petroleum. Thank you for pointing this out. I hadn’t thought of it. God forbid I have a guilt free day on my bd. lol

  32. rosehips says:

    not to mention the gas I will burn to get up there to the canadian border. haha

  33. samiam60 says:

    M2 what movie was that?

  34. rosehips says:

    and vf, I remember fondly when I defended and supported you much to the dismay of many liberals who didn’t understand our friendship.

  35. m2 says:

    I know VF, I remember how their minds nearly exploded that she would argue for her beliefs… b/c they couldn’t do so.

    I remember those people…

  36. m2 says:

    sam, I don’t know… My friend just posted it on my FB page… I thought it was funny. It might say on the youtube page.

  37. tellitlikeitis says:

    rosehips, It sounds like you are going to leave quite a carbon footprint tubing today. lol
    What would Al gasbag say? OOPS! I mean Al Gore.

  38. m2 says:

    I just got this candle called “Sand Castles” and it’s a mix of Beach Walk and Sun & Sand from Yankee Candle Co.

    It smells like summer…

  39. samiam60 says:

    Rose maybe you should just stay home and figure out how to dispose of that tube which will survive in a landfill for 10,000 years. lol , sorry to mess with your special day but it goes with the turf, girl.

  40. rosehips says:

    okay, gotta go eat and do some things. I hope to check in with you before I leave. I look forward to your next post vf.

  41. m2 says:

    Did you guys know Al Gore is being sued by 30,000 scientists and the founder of the weather channel?

  42. tellitlikeitis says:

    See Ya Rose! Enjoy your day!

  43. tellitlikeitis says:

    M2, Al Gore getting sued? Is that the inconvienient truth he keeps talking about? lol

  44. m2 says:

    LOL !!!

  45. m2 says:

    He’s getting sued for spreading un-proven junk science for material wealth and gain… but he should be more worried about his after life after all that lying for money.

  46. samiam60 says:

    M2 says:

    Did you guys know Al Gore is being sued by 30,000 scientists and the founder of the weather channel?

    M2, Why? all Al Gore did was induce panic in the Liberal Community.

  47. samiam60 says:

    M2 Al Gores after life will be the real Global Warming on his sorry A$$.

  48. m2 says:

    An Inconvenient Al.

  49. m2 says:

    I really don’t care, but I don’t see how ppl make the decisions to globally fleece for power (helping his dictator cohorts) and build a corporate (CC investment co.) wealth-swindling empire, and meanwhile his own house used more energy than the neighborhoods surrounding him. HUH?!

  50. m2 says:

    Didn’t his son hit somebody or was in a DUI accident or something… ?

  51. samiam60 says:

    Anyone seen one of them thar Smart Cars on the road yet? I guess the Libs are buying em up like hotcakes. I can’t imagine thinking about the global warning as a big rig comes barreling over me.

  52. samiam60 says:

    The smart cars are the ultimate Geek Machine of today.

  53. m2 says:

    dang…

  54. m2 says:

    double-dang!

    sorry VF…
    Just seeing if I can put an image into a comment…

    The smart cars are like death-mobiles. I would never get on a highway in one of those, they look like golf carts.

  55. m2 says:

    I think I killed VF’s blog.

  56. samiam60 says:

    They will eventually rename the car the
    “Dumbass” car.

  57. m2 says:

    They’ll eventually rename it the “golf cart” and ship them to courses across the country!

  58. samiam60 says:

    Hey lets chip in and get Al Gore one.

  59. m2 says:

    I see Tellit’s gravatar now… after re-starting my browser…

    Well I got to get baby to nap then work, so I expect that new blog post by the time I get back Mizz VF!

    later guys!

  60. tellitlikeitis says:

    Innertubing fun.

  61. m2 says:

    I find I need more space than just my driver seat and passenger seat. And where do you put a baby in one of those??

    So people just buy them to fart around in their neighborhood and make everyone think they are environmental activists… so it’s all about “image”…

    ha ha ha… later

  62. samiam60 says:

    I too must leave now and pump up the economy as best I can. I think I must max out my credit cards in order to avoid bankruptcy. Hows that Joe Biden?

  63. tellitlikeitis says:

    Here’s a beatles birthday song for you rose. You got to watch this video. It is hilarious!

  64. Foxwood says:

    Happy birthday Rose, from a grumpy old troglodyte.

    🙂

  65. Foxwood says:

    If the healthcare bill passes, a section is dedicated for your IRS requirements and penalties. These IRS rules are set in place to verify that you uphold your individual responsibility of coverage for health insurance.

    Section 401: Tax penalty on individuals without acceptable health care coverage.

    The health care bill is over 1,000 pages. This is the link, if you want to see how the bill will affect you.

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.3200:

  66. Foxwood says:

    Just waking up from another crappy nite.

  67. VotingFemale says:

    The senate just caved into Obama on cutting funding for the F-22 Raptor and voted in committee to end the F-22 program… now I have to start over with a new blogpost…

    I am so mad I am chewing 10 penny nails…

    grrrrrrrr

  68. m2 says:

    You’re mad as hell and you’re not going to take it anymore!

    perhaps the Senate felt bad for his flaming turd of Healthcare-sham and vollyed the ball…

  69. m2 says:

    The House bill is called “affordable” “choices”

    them Marxists think they’re clever! Too bad Karl told us how they play the game!

  70. m2 says:

    Foxwood, here’s the best line of the healthcare bill, the first one:

    “To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.

  71. tellitlikeitis says:

    I was just on the cnn news site and I came across this Ireport. The unrest is still going on in Iran but our news media is not reporting it. Check out this ireport.
    http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-301284

  72. m2 says:

    such a travesty that no one will support the people.

    What is the UN for? Corruption and bullshit…
    which is why America has always been more a symbol of freedom and truth than the UN.

    Until Obama got elected that is…

  73. Foxwood says:

    If you’ve been hearing on the radio, “turn to page xx of the house bill”, here is a pdf version of the bill that you can turn to the page.

    http://docs.house.gov/edlabor/AAHCA-BillText-071409.pdf

    For instance, pg 16 tell you when your private health care WILL convert to the government plan.

  74. Foxwood says:

    I have heavy storms coming in. I have to force myself to go back to sleep, as I might not sleep at all tonight.

  75. SamHenry says:

    What a special birthday wish! There are storms in my area as well and I will have to stay off for a time. This must be a heck of a north – south front!

    Bye all

    Overboard!

  76. tellitlikeitis says:

    Iran is ripe for a revolution. The protests are not stopping and the violence is escalating.

  77. rosehips says:

    thanks for the birthday wishes everyone. I appreciate all of you.

    I will talk to you tomorrow. Don’t blow any gaskets while I’m gone. I don’t want to miss anything. heehee

    love you all!

  78. m2 says:

    You guys I am getting stuff done and taking names! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

    bye rosehips, hope you have a good dinner and get awesome presents tonight!

  79. tellitlikeitis says:

    Again Happy birthday Rose! I hope you had fun tubing today!

  80. ohiobelle says:

    I know the video is long but PLEASE WATCH IT!!!!

  81. SamHenry says:

    Belle – I’m at my computer without sound but will watch in a bit. If it is about Canadian health care, I don’t understand why Obama cites it as a success. It is so unsuccessful. He killed the bombers today. So let’s kill health care reform. I know a lot of blacks who are increasingly not happy with him – and many who would not vote for him in the first place. I really believe his base is eroding worse than the polls show.

    The thing that is most worrisome to me continues to be the people who are closest to him like Rauhm. They are sharks. And he has given them too much power.

  82. SamHenry says:

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/07/21/borger.health.care/index.html

    By Gloria Borger at CNN:

    The trouble for Obama is that he’s getting tethered to some of the bad ideas the Democrats propose because he hasn’t denounced them. We know that he’s cool and patient, but maybe his drooping recent poll numbers will cause him to start drawing some lines in the sand. Americans still like their new president, but they’re clearly wondering why he has let congressional Democrats inhabit his body.

    In a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, for instance, approval of his handling of health care has slid from 57 percent to 49 percent since April. And the Democrats’ foray into taxing the rich hasn’t done Obama any favors, either: Just one month ago, voters earning more than $50,000 liked Obama more than the GOP on health care by a 2-1 margin.

    Today, those voters are evenly split. And independent voters — the key to Obama’s electoral success — are leaving the flock. In April, 57 percent of independents approved his handling of health care; that has now dipped to 44 percent, and 49 percent disapprove.

    All of which is not catastrophic, but it is a problem. And it’s not a problem the Republicans have created for Obama, although they will no doubt try and take credit. In truth, it’s something the Democrats have done all by themselves. No Republicans needed.

  83. ohiobelle says:

    SamHenry wrote: Belle – I’m at my computer without sound but will watch in a bit.

    SamHenry, you might lose a little in the start of the video but you will quickly see the result.

  84. SamHenry says:

    This is outrageous. Where were Republicans?

    resident Obama’s “science czar,” Paul Holdren, once floated the idea of forced abortions, “compulsory sterilization,” and the creation of a “Planetary Regime” that would oversee human population levels and control all natural resources as a means of protecting the planet — controversial ideas his critics say should have been brought up in his Senate confirmation hearings.

    Holdren, who has degrees from MIT and Stanford and headed a science policy program at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government for the past 13 years, won the unanimous approval of the Senate as the president’s chief science adviser.

    Investigator: Palin Broke Ethics Rules
    Report Finds Alaska Gov. Should Not Have Taken Public Donations to Pay Legal Debts through Official Fund

    (AP) An independent investigator has found evidence that Gov. Sarah Palin may have violated ethics laws by accepting private donations to pay her legal debts.

    The report obtained by The Associated Press says Palin is securing unwarranted benefits and receiving improper gifts through the Alaska Fund Trust, set up by supporters.

    An investigator for the state Personnel Board says in his July 14 report that there is probable cause to believe Palin used or attempted to use her official position for personal gain because she authorized the creation of the trust as the “official” legal defense fund.

    The fund aims to help Palin pay off debts stemming from multiple ethics complaints against her, most of which have been dismissed. Palin says she owes more than $500,000 in legal fees.

  87. ohiobelle says:

    It did work. Everybody should vote in that poll!!

  88. m2 says:

    hey you guys, Hannity said in the car that Obama told Left bloggers in a phone conf. that if he doesn’t get his bill passed, he will do it covertly, ie. subvert the system (our government system, ie. congress) in order to do it.

    How’s that for “the people”… huh?

    Dinner is done..

  89. m2 says:

    by october.. he said. By october if it doesn’t go through he will get it done by LYING and STEALTH.

    and this wasn’t the Huff Po phone conf. this was a different left-site… I will have to find it…

    BBL

  90. Foxwood says:

    Getting ready for work. Heres some good news.

    Page 425 of Obummer’s healthcare bill, the Federal Government requires EVERYONE who is on Social Security to undergo a counseling session every 5 years. They explain how to end their own life earlier.

  91. LisaInTX says:

    Hope your bday cake was better than this one…LOL

  92. SamHenry says:

    OBAMA is reaching out to cits through all major and backwater media. I have never seen a campaign like this outside of an election.

    I received yet another e-mail from the Obama “people” today about health care.

    Before the first full votes in Congress, we’ll publish the signatures in newspaper ads across the nation, to make sure your voice is heard.

    Watch President Obama’s full response, then add your name in support of reform. Or if you’ve already signed, please forward this message to every one of your friends and neighbors so they can join you.

    OK that’s one branch of media the WH covered. Now this article shows how he has now got liberal bloggers involved – read what he says about bloggers:

    Also from CBS News:

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/07/21/politics/main5176433.shtml?tag=stack

    Later in the day, aides organized a conference call for Obama to speak with liberal bloggers and rally them behind the White House’s broad outline for overhaul.

    “One of the things that I know the blogs are best at is debunking myths that can slip through a lot of the traditional media outlets and a lot of the conventional wisdom,” he said, according to audio of the call posted on Web sites. “And that is why you are going to play such an important role in our success in the weeks to come.”

    Happy Birthday Rose, another day older and a deeper in debt, LOL sorry it was there!! Hope you enjoy your special day, and have fun. Just a float by, be on later. Karma

  94. ohiobelle says:

    Hello Karma!

    Does anybody know who are new Czar for health care is?

  95. ohiobelle says:

    Somebody knows who it is. I just haven’t had time to follow it. I’ll check back in a little bit.

  96. samiam60 says:

    Ohio I think it is Hiemler or Romael

  97. ohiobelle says:

    Thank you Sam. I keep getting different answers everytime I ask.

  98. ohiobelle says:

    Anybody but Nancy DeParle!! We don’t need the same loser that ran Medicaid and Medicare into the ground!!

  99. ohiobelle says:

    I’ll be back in a few.

  100. Foxwood says:

    Health Care Czar: Nancy-Ann DeParle

  101. Foxwood says:

    Opps, sorry 🙂

  102. ohiobelle says:

    Foxwood, NO WAY???? NANCY DEPARLE IS HEALTHCARE CZAR??????????

  103. Foxwood says:

    I did a search of Czars the other day, and she was the Healthcare Czar listed.

  104. ohiobelle says:

    • Nancy-Ann DeParle, managing director, former administrator of the HealthCare Financing Administration, now the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is OUR NATIONAL HEALTHCARE CZAR???? WE ARE SCREWED!!!

  105. ohiobelle says:

    I think Obama hates us!!!!

  106. ohiobelle says:

    I keep getting pulled away!! I’ll be right back.

  107. Foxwood says:

    People are this stupid… It almost embarrasses me that Bush caved in.

    http://animal-farm.us/change/dim-bulbs-535

  108. Foxwood says:

    Yeah, that guy was on Fox a couple of days ago.

    And as for Michael Moron… what a gasbag.

  109. Foxwood says:

    looks like the storms have passed. I’m gonna try to sleep again.

  110. ohiobelle says:

    Foxwood, I saw him on Hannity.

    I wonder if our new elected officials will be doctors??

  111. SamHenry says:

    Hi Belle, Fox et al

    Fox isn’t one of the high up Republicans in Congress a doctor?

  112. SamHenry says:

    Belle, I talked with a friend today in this area where I live. Strong Hospital of the University of Rochester is a behemoth. Already they are TELLING their practices to expand through the avenue of adding PAs not physicians to save money. Some people like my friend go to an office for the expertise of a physician and never see him. It’s outrageous. More of that to come surely.

  113. SamHenry says:

    Sorry – forgot you had gone back to bed, Fox.

  114. SamHenry says:

    Now that the rain has stopped I really should go outside and do some things that have been hanging fire. I am pissed because save money though you will with dish, I now have another receiver or whatever you call the boxes that is “off” because it has to be reset with one of those cards and I never got mine. It is enough to drive me back to cable and eat tuna for the rest of my life.

  115. ohiobelle says:

    I HAVE THE ANSWER TO HEALTHCARE REFORM…….

    DaVita, a California-based company that provides kidney dialysis, spent $4.2 million in 2008 and at least $700,000 so far this year lobbying in Washington on such issues as Medicare, health information technology and kidney disease.

    Medco, a pharmacy benefit manager that runs a mail-order pharmacy, devoted at least $3.5 million to federal lobbying from January 2008 through last March. Its issues included health information technology, federal rules on patient privacy and chronic care management.

    Boston-based Boston Scientific spent $1.6 million last year and at least $450,000 so far this year lobbying in Washington on subjects including health research, coverage of chronic pain treatment and Medicare.

    Cerner, which provides health care clinical and management information systems and software, spent $370,000 last year and at least $55,000 so far this year lobbying in Washington on such issues as health information technology and patient identification.

    California-based CareMore registered to lobby this year and has spent at least $50,000 lobbying on special-needs plans.

    ANSWER: STOP LOBBYING IN WASHINGTON!! LOL

    Belle, I talked with a friend today in this area where I live. Strong Hospital of the University of Rochester is a behemoth. Already they are TELLING their practices to expand through the avenue of adding PAs not physicians to save money. Some people like my friend go to an office for the expertise of a physician and never see him. It’s outrageous. More of that to come surely.

    My doctor said unfortunately she will most likely shut her doors.

    In the first three months of this year, GM lobbied on issues including its own bailout, the stimulus, climate change, transportation funding, air bag laws, fuel-efficiency requirements, prescription drugs, health care reform, cellulosic ethanol, hydrogen-powered cars, fuel cells and Mexican trucks, among others.

    GM is a member of the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, a coalition that lobbies Washington for cap-and-trade restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions, as is Chrysler. AIG, on the other hand, withdrew from the coalition upon its bailout.

    GM spent $13.1 million on lobbying in 2008 and in the first quarter of this year (after taxpayer bailout), the company’s lobbying tab was $2.8 million.

    Seems like alot of our money is going right back to the corrupt politicians!

  119. SamHenry says:

    Right Belle and the most corrupt politician, Barack Obama spends countless millions on his election machinery to churn out messages to the minions about how to press for change. He has his own lobby and we have agreed. I am tired of all of this. Lobbyists put undue pressure on Government. The only pressure on government should be letters from constituents.

  120. SamHenry says:

    I have been nodding off at my computer. Storms are still in the area. It’s a good time to just kick in for the night. See you tomorrow.

    President Obama is a fascist.

    And he proves it with his blogger conf. call.
    his bad healthcare bill.
    his extremist Czars.
    his spending bill where no one knows where the money went
    his takeover of auto
    his takeover of finance
    and his total disregard for the system of government in order to change it to his fascist vision.

  123. ohiobelle says:

    SamHenry, I couldn’t agree with you more about the lobbyist. Do you think we’re still going to pay this amount for lobbying Washington if Washington owns everything??

    Do you think our taxpayer money should’ve gone to GM to lobby Washington on Cap & Trade?? It just seems so wrong!!!!

    Obama’s lies during Campaign: We got your sorry but on video buddy. No where to run and no where for you to hide.

  143. ohiobelle says:

    Okay I had to check back on last time.

    Obama’s promise for us to keep our healthcare is like his promise that unemployment wouldn’t go over 8%! YOU CAN’T TRUST A SOCIALIST!!!

    Good night all!!

  144. tellitlikeitis says:

    You guys gotta watch this!

  145. samhenry says:

    Sam Henry was on the way to bed but checked the conference room – good dogs sniff out all stories. Then went to iReports and posted or rather pooped. I was upset about general principles of free speech as you will see.

    For those who can’t make it to the post, go to the conference room.

  146. tellitlikeitis says:

    Barack Obama reminds me of an old turd. With an old turd if you scratch off the outer crust the pungent stink 0dor from below the crust overwhelms you.

  147. SamHenry says:

    Tellit – The Cat, The Cat – Sotomayor, Sotomayor….lol.

  148. samiam60 says:

    tellit great video I am hoping to do the same thursday given the chance.

  149. SamHenry says:

    Larry King Live talked abou the birth certificate – he drew a parallel between people who believe Obama is a Kenyon and people who believe the moon landing was not real. He trashed fox and Lynn Cheyney – he is relly bad news. He does not take on the issue he just launches into a string of ad homienum attacks.

  150. samiam60 says:

    Obama announced earlier today on CNN that he was about to appoint a new Bullsh!t Czar to further promote his policies.

  151. samiam60 says:

    Hi SamH I enjoyed your comment over there.
    As far as Larry King is concerned you have to remember that he is a hasbeen for quite sometime now.

  152. SamHenry says:

    Yea, Sami but it was James Carvellw (I forgot to say this) who hit her with this.

  153. SamHenry says:

    I love the Sheriff down in Florida who is in charge of the investigation of the murder of the couple who cared for the developmentally challenged children. When asked what the motive was he said: I don’t care what the motive is – I don’t care if the perps weren’t breast fed or were deprived of twinkies as kids – I leave that to the doctors. (or words to that effect).

  154. SamHenry says:

    Geigner or however you spell his name – wasn’t he at Goldman -Sachs? The entire bailout group overseeing banking and investmen houses is from Goldman Sachs. The foxes are again watching the chicken house. It is a travesty.

    Good vid, Sami

    And now I have to really get to bed. I always enjoy being on when you are – Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOO I think I misspoke! Mon dieu.

  155. samiam60 says:

    Night SamH sweet dreams.

  156. VotingFemale says:

    Lou Dobbs, this evening, had a panel of three on and was calling for Obama to produce his long form birth certificate… only 12 months late on that one CNN… duhhhh but I guess better late than never… he layed it on thick…

    night everyone!

    zzzzzzzz

  157. arlenearmy says:

    Hello all

  158. SamHenry says:

    Hi Arlene – I think everyone signed off. I’m just back because we had a power failure and I stopped by to check my computer. My big black lab, Sam Henry – well he is no good in an emergency. When the lights went on and off and on and off he barked to beat the band then beat it upstairs to his bed. Only Imp the little one stayed with me. When I called Sam, he wouldn’t come to me. What am I going to do. I don’t have a watch dog, he is afraid of water and he will not retrieve. USELESS except for love!

  159. SamHenry says:

    Arlene

    I’m going to have to sign off. I am very tired. Good to see you here and we will talk soon.

  160. arlenearmy says:

    Rose
    July 21st in the year of our Lord 2009 is a good day. Its a day commemorating the birth of RoseHips w/special event – Blue Dogs break rank from Pelosi.

    As I sit here watching hubby canning food & I watch”The Colony” (post-apocalyptic world) on the Discovery channel, I thought about you. So on this day, I wish you success in your survival in these uncertain times.

  161. SamHenry says:

    PS – and that isn’t all. SamHenry is now bombarding me with the worst silent but deadly gas attacks. I can’t believe I have to deal with incoming as well as disappointment.

  162. SamHenry says:

    What a lovely message for Rose and here I am cluttering cyberspace with gas.

    You say the blue dogs broke from Peolosi – over Health Care?

  163. SamHenry says:

    Arlene – tell your husband to stop canning and start crying – the President will be holding a news conference at 8:00 pm tomorrow night. I don’t know anyone who gets so much coverage. And it is worse than going to church to hear a sermon on the end of the world and where we will park our cars for the event.

  164. karmahd says:

    check the conference room Arlene SH

  165. arlenearmy says:

    This pc is bout used up. Im seriously thinking about geting a mac.

  166. karmahd says:

    Arlene they are great computers but pretty pricey for what you get. You can get a wiz bang system with a kick but monitor at Sams for about 499 bucks. the cheapest Mac is around 1200. But hey I want one too for my video and picture apps, they are really much better for that stuff.

  167. arlenearmy says:

    SH
    We are gonna watch what he got to say. Though I don’t know what else Obama can say on this matter. He is looking ridiculous on this health care matter. If I were Obama I would call in sick & cancel the town hall.

    We got cucumbers growing like crazy. No way we can eat them all. So hubby is pickling.

  168. arlenearmy says:

    Rose,
    In case I dont get back here before midnite, here’s 1 of my favorite songs for you to nite cap on

  169. Foxwood says:

    Senator DeMint said healthcare might be Obummers Waterloo.

  170. Foxwood says:

    He is gathering his troops.

    We have to make our stand!

  171. Foxwood says:

    We’ve got them on the run!

  172. Foxwood says:

    It’s time to deal the final blow!

    We are winning!

  173. samiam60 says:

    Good Morning all. It is a new day and our journey together has seen great accomplishments to date. We are living in incredible times and these days are words are as sharp as a two edged sword. Our Freedoms have been threatened and our resolve is firm. We shall not fade away but rather restore the Constitution and our Freedoms as the Founding Fathers had intended. The World Wide Web is now the Power of the People.
    Mr. Obama we are more than just a Cup of Tea.
    We are ” We The People”.

  174. SamHenry says:

    Morning FOX and Sami

    FX- I’m at my computer without the sound hooked up (wah) so will listen to vids asap.

    Sami – well said and you should post daily.

    My brother Jamie has overcome stage 4 lymphoma and at the age of about 60 is riding in that extreme cycling tour across Iowa, Ragbrai. You can follow him at JamieLindsay.twitter.com. Here is one of his comments from last night.

    Concert band taking a break after enough verses of “purple rain” to make Noah nervous! Lunesta get me out of here!

  175. SamHenry says:

    He is riding with team Livestrong. His tent has the names of those still fighting on it and then the word “you” for all those he can’t put on.

  176. SamHenry says:

    Young cancer survivor on kReport who is a pal just lost his job. NO medical insurance. GREAT attitude. A few prayers for Thomas. TX

  177. SamHenry says:

    back to bed for me. Give a thought to all of those good people riding to fight cancer over this week- Lance Armstrong in France and Team Livestrong in the Ragbrai race across 500 miles of Iowa. LIVESTRONG.

  178. SamHenry says:

    DOG OVERBOARD

  179. VotingFemale says:
