Kudos , President Obama!! because of the work I do, I see our Military people everyday!..everytime some one has sent me a petition, to demand that our military "come home NOW!" my mind is a very big question!!..what are WE bringing them home to? jobs, though, if the repubs would actually be responsable, WE can all have jobs again , that actually pay the bills!!..let alone ALL the other related issues and yes I want them home too, and they want too..but THEY KNOW THE BIGGER PICTURE, WHICH YOU AND I ARE NOT PRIVY TOO, AS THAT WOULD BE IRRESPONSABLE!! it is all of our responsabilitys to prepare a sound and logical welcome home, for our BRAVE!..and our selves, by VOTING IN RESPONSABLE GOVERNMENT ON ALL LEVELS, IN EVERY STATE, THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE USA!!!
OBAMA, 2012!!

Cheer up all who missed it, you can still see that moon tonight...and TC and Lynn. it's supposed to be a much better night for seeing it here in the Pacific Northwest :-)

Arizona ~ There are now and will continue to be many, many less "Whole" women in that state thanks to that group, and i hope every last hell and horror story is brought to them as individuals as well as a group, and blamed on them with every story that is told to the public.
And i'm baffled as to why it isn't named The Whole Woman's Health DE~Funding Priority Act

Move On ~ What do you want to bet Mittens and his cronies already have that money already earmarked or spent in their delusional, rabbit ass minds?
Aren't dreamers just precious?

Cartoon ó That looks round in shape (not spherical!) so if the Republican/Teabaggers believe itís flat, it must mean itís a frizbee? So thatís how God gets his recreation! He throws a frizbee! Who brings it back? Oh, that must be one of those, less government DIY things!

MoveOn ó Yet again, a very good statement!

Brewerstan ó And this surprises who? Shoving women into the hands again of back alley butchers, not providing equal access to decent affordable preventative healthcare for women which has not only an economic implication but also a racial implication ó the Republican/Teabagger war on women is still in full force and effect. Keep it up Repugs and hopefully youíll be able to hear the voices of American women in November 2012! Ö and again in 2014!

The White House ó While I agree with you TC about getting the troops home faster, what would they be coming back to? ó unemployment? a society cut to ribbons with partisan politics? At least they would be out of one harmís way, but would they be entering another?

I like the idea of redirecting the war spending to the national debt and rebuilding. That will or should help the returning troops as well as everyone else, . . . well except the military industrial complex who will look for new wars to start. But I dare say that the Republican/Teabaggers will go against this kicking and screaming! They will use any and every excuse, logical or not (heavy, heavy on the NOT!), to yet again obstruct the work or the nation.

On PP - rhanks for the YouTube Nasa-moon link, SoIneedaName! Most interesting - though I had always thought that it wasn't the quantity of hosp admissions that went up - but the quality of behaviour that went down - people behaving more oddly than usual.

I do hope President Obama manages to get the whole nation to rally to the cry of spending previous war revenue half on cutting the deficit and half on rebuilding the country - sounds pure common sense!

I never thought if that way. After all that they did for us there will be nothing for them when we get there.

Man, the extreme rhetoric from both sides will get us nowhere! If everyone would just take a serious look at the issues from both sides and stop pitting everyone against each other, then we might all come to a decent conclusion. This blaming each other is for all the ills of the world is about as childish as kindergarten rants. YOUR FAULT!! NUH-UH! YOUR FAULT! ....... and so the stupidity goes on and on....... Sad for this country -- really :(
