Good to see you're in such a good mood today, TomCat. Hopefully you'll also have some good news on your point-to-point disability transit for us tomorrow.

Being a transsexual is definitely OK, I know from personal experience with a friend who changed into the woman she felt she was even as a little boy. We had absolutely no problem with it, it was the best decision she could have made and she was the most natural woman you could imagine. But it has been a very hard few years for her, despite a lot of support. There are always people there who want to remind her she once was a man, they just won't accept her.

Rachel Maddow said that the Republicans are becoming outraged after abandoning the facts on what Obama actually did or didn't do "because of their blinding disdain for this president". I like to rephrase that, Rachel, to: "because of their blinding racial hatred of this president".

If Harry Reid is prepared to move forward with a vote that could severely limit the minority party’s ability to filibuster presidential nominees, he better do it this time and not let the Republicans get the better of him again. If he fumbles this one again, Democrats will lose all the momentum they gained in the last couple of weeks, and will become the plaything of the GOP again. Obama should then serve Reid's yellow liver, with a little Chianti, to the dogs.

Does money buried in a kitty box become 'dirty money'? Thanks for the great videos.

Trans-gender could it be we need to have one comprehensive definition so that so many people will stop asking questions and just allow these folks to live their life without stares and deeply personal judgments. All of us are different in various ways. I don't want to know who sleeps with whom, I do not watch celebrity TV, I do not care. I know for certain, this is none of my business.

News Flash - All president's take vacation, most have played golf and used it as a way of removing the pressure cooker of the White House to talk with members of Congress. I wish they would take more vacation's that job is incredibly stressful, they need "Chill Time" maybe not as much as Bush, but it doesn't matter. When the presidents go on vacation the job still goes with them.

Well, we all know that Lincoln did not go to church, didn't care about religion and only used the word god to pacify some Americans. The speech that lacked the phrase about god was actually the one Lincoln himself preferred. Never let it be said that Rush will not take any opportunity to attempt to trash the president.

Definition of one that is not patriotic - Rush Limbaugh and is gaggle of fans.

Harry Reid has done the deed - no more filibusters during considerations of nominees appointed by the president. Thumbs Up, Harry!

Total number of nominations blocked for ALL other presidents - 86

Total number of nominations blocked against Obama - 82
Enough is Enough!

Thanks TC, nice to see you in a happy mood and feeling good.

Happy Cat! :) Glad you are feeling frisky and in better health these days!

Transgendered…..why should anyone care what someone else is regarding gender or ethnicity or race or how they live their private lives in the privacy of their own bedrooms? I only see a human being (until a bagger/fundy/fascist/rethug, et al) opens their mouth and lets me know they are not a human being. LGBT's get way too much scrutiny and hate thrown at them 24/7/365 and it needs to stop.

So the Prez didn't do or did do or wouldn't do or almost did, should have done — WHATEVER — you know the frikken Rethuglifascists are going to pick him apart at every opportunity. HELLO — if they would OMD — READ and/or — GASP! — LEARN something about which they spew their hateful ignorant bullshit, they would know that the original speech DID NOT HAVE the word 'God' in it. Period. Revisionism SUX the big one IMO.

Well, the Titanium pair I FedExed to Leg Hound musta worked! :)

Sorry, having a gag reflex goin on here…..happens every time I have the misfortune to either see or hear Limpd*ck Rush Limburger…..and his frikken Dittoheads. Bashing anything or anyone NOT a 1) Rush fan aka Dittohead 2) Fascist or 3) OWMM... is his business….facts never enter the picture with this bellicose bloviator. Nothing new….move along.

I was stuck on a stretch of highway in
Texas for about 20 minutes and there
was nothing on the radio except the
Limp. I never heard such hate filled,
lying bile in all my days.

Talk about flitting around a puzzle! Oof!
