A TeaBagger just rang our doorbell


Hey, that's how things work. You gotta knock on doors.

We told him no thanks.

Wearing black today to support Virginia teachers

The Va. Legislature has made huge cuts to education including increasing class size (Va. once had the 3rd lowest now is 41st) and pensions.

"Black Friday" it is being called.

Who the hell dumped Adele?

Wow they initiated a deluge of music - whoever they are

I guess "Joey" on "Full House" knows what it is like - Alanis Morriette is said to have written "You oughta know" about him.

Newt scrambles for money

The former U.S. House Speaker is traveling to California on Monday in search of campaign-sustaining cash. The state will grant more convention delegates than any other in its June 5 primary, and Gingrich will have a smattering of public events, but the central purpose of the trip is to raise money: He will hold eight closed-door fundraisers in the span of three days, according to campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond.

In the interview Gingrich said he also has fundraisers planned in Texas, Tennessee and New York, and a trip to Georgia at week’s end will include fundraisers. Gingrich is attempting to build a nationwide campaign ahead of the crucial March 6 Super Tuesday contests, when Georgia and nine other states cast their votes.

“I’m currently uncommitted,” he (Brint Ryan, a former Perry backer and CEO of Dallas tax services firm Ryan Inc.) wrote in an email. “I’m not sure if I will re-engage before the primary or not. I’m very disappointed that Rick Perry, the person with the best record and the strongest experience, was not successful."

“We also proved back in the summer we could run a campaign remarkably inexpensively,” he said, referencing the time when his senior staff departed en masse and the indebted campaign was left for dead. “Both Santorum and I have gone through periods with virtually no money.” ---Newt, the free TV time (the debates) are over. Soooooorrrrrry.

GOP Ups The Ante, Introduces Legislation To Allow Any Employer To Deny Any Preventive Health Service


But Republicans and some conservative Catholic groups are not satisfied with the accommodation and hope to use their false claim of “religious persecution” to deny women access to preventive health services. Despite Obama’s decision to shield nonprofit religious institutions from offering birth control benefits, next week Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) is expected to offer an amendment that would permit any employer or insurance plan to exclude any health service, no matter how essential, from coverage if they morally object to it:

LINSANITY!! - amazing story in the NBA. Harvard grad, 3rd team, sleeping on brother's couch - STAR!!

Lin’s journey has been an interesting one, and what he has accomplished so far is nothing short of remarkable. After going undrafted out of Harvard, Lin signed on with his hometown Golden State Warriors, where he played sparingly in a reserve role last season.

The Warriors waived him Dec. 9, and the Houston Rockets quickly scooped him up, but the Rockets let him go before the season even started.

The Knicks grabbed him off waivers Dec. 27, but after struggling to find a place for Lin in the rotation, the Knicks sent him down to the D-League (the NBA's Developmental league - the minor leagues). In his only game with the Erie BayHawks, Lin posted a triple-double, scoring 28 points to go with 12 assists and 11 rebounds — certainly enough to warrant a recall to the NBA, but not yet enough to get him into the lineup.

“The journey was very different,” Lin said. “Getting waived twice, going to the D-League four times, just fighting for a spot in any rotation, and being basically a 15th guy on a roster, that’s tough at times.”


NBA analyst Ric Bucher tweeted that Lin, a devout Christian, is the NBA's counterpart to "Tebowmania."

It's helped too that the Knicks, with bloated salaries and egos, had been struggling and searching for someone to pull all the talent together. No better person than Lin, 23, who for the past six weeks has been sleeping in his brother Josh's living room while his non-guaranteed contract - reportedly less than $800,000 - got worked out.

105 year old still volunteering at a hospital

Dorrie Aber Noyek briskly maneuvers the halls of Memorial Regional Hospital picking up and delivering mail. There are no signs of slowing down — not even on this, her 105th birthday.

“Volunteering has been important to me as long as I can remember. I feel I want to give back," she said. "I think I’m very fortunate, very lucky, very blessed."

“From when I was quite young, all my life in England, anyway, we never had a car, not at all. And I’ve always walked. I’ve always walked miles.”

“When people hear how old she is they’re shocked, because nobody has seen a person of that age who is able to get around the way she does and who has the mental abilities she has. She lives completely on her own in a regular condo,” Steinhauer said.

“Not too much fat, too much sweets," she said. "Although to this day I eat cookies every day.” Her favorite kind is chocolate chip.
