Whigging out

Last November the house increased its GOP majority and the Senate found itself with a Republican majority. The conservatives were happy. They would now be ready to legislate their agenda. The new Senate majority Leader was ready to go to work.

Christian Grey for President
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 02/08/2015 14:17:37

Good morning 4 F-ers. I had in mind to write todays blog about the backlash from our President's prayer breakfast speech. He won't call ISIS "muslims", he reminds Americans that we also burned people, the crusades were kinda bad, and the KKK is a christian group. Blah, blah, blah. Insert hysteria-from-the-right here.

For want of a Vaccine
Author: TriSec    Date: 02/07/2015 13:00:02

Nearly 30 years ago now, I had the extraordinary privilege to travel to Nova Scotia, Canada as part of an American Boy Scout troop that had been invited to participate in “ScotiaJamb”, a province-wide jamboree of Canadian scouts. Nearly 7,000 Scouts and Scouters from across many of the Maritime Provinces journeyed to the brand-new provincial park at Dollar Lake to partake in the inaugural festivities.

Fluffy Friday

Yesterday I was listening to our local news-ish radio station, WTOP. They were announcing that the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition was out, like it was real news, pop culture new - sure, real new - no.Anyway, they were very excited to report that SI was including the first plus-size model in the issue. I remember joking that she was probably a size 2.

Later in the day they started releasing pictures for the press to promote the issue. I don't usually pay attention, its not my thing, I just roll my eyes and move along. Being a plus sized woman myself, I was curious to see what they considered as a representative for those above the average.

Her name is Robyn Lawly. She's lovely, beautiful, health looking and I'm sure a sweet girl. Meet SI's Official Plus Size Model (bold mine)

The Obama Administration will delay its deadline to end chronic homelessness — because they don't have the money for it.

Pipe Dreams
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-02-04 11:48:21

The debate about the Keystone XL pipeline has been ongoing ever since it was conceived. With Democrats controlling the Senate and the White House for the last 6 years, there was never a chance it would be approved to move forward. That may change. The bill passed the Senate last week with nearly a 2/3 majority (62-36). Yes, that means a number of Democrats voted for it; naturally every single Republican voted for it (except for Marco Rubio, who was out campaigning for the 2016 presidential race). It will likely hit the House floor next week for vote, where it will also likely pass. From there, it's onto the president's desk, where it will hopefully be vetoed.

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

Today is our 138th day back in Iraq.

3 contractors were recently killed in Afghanistan, but there have been no new military casualties in either theatre.

Today's Cost of War has passed yet another milestone, as you can see:

$ 1, 600, 902, 500, 000 .00

Today the Senate is expected to take up the Clay Hunt act, which passed the House back on January 7. We'll see what kind of commitment this New Congress has to our veterans this day.

Easy way out
Author: TriSec    Date: 01/31/2015 13:00:46

Good Morning.

Well, we've dug out of the "Blizzard of Death" by now, with another foot of snow coming Monday. Ah, winter in New England.

I've had a decent run the past few weeks, but today I think I'll take the easy way out. Have at it!
