About Me

Married, 2 kids a boy and a girl. Two dogs, both boxers, a cat that I'm pretty sure is at least part maine coon..who knows. I found him in my driveway freezing and starving. I enjoy reading, music, I watch entirely too much tv and Republicans make me sick. I think family is the most important thing. Anything else you wanna know, just ask. :-)

Iowa Caucuses....

I mean offense to anyone living in Iowa.

But I don't get the whole Iowa thing. yeah I know history and all that.

For the repukes. It's their peeps.

But for the Democratic candidates (not that we don't have people there) it really doesn't represent the multi-everything our party represents. We're that giant pot of soup that has everything in it. Iowa is bread and butter.

Nothing better that good bread with butter, but it compliments the soup.

Why isn't the kick off held somewhere where the whole of our country is better represented.

Seems we should have changed that to keep up with the changing times.

Just something I thought about while I was watching telly this morning.

Now I want soup & bread.

I read this on on the internet...

it was said by a supporter of a democratic candidate.

"Hillary couldn't even beat the black guy".

Now I'm an Obama supporter, not ashamed to admit it. What I am ashamed of is a Democrat calling President Obama 'the black guy'. I know he's not lived up to everyone's expectations, but he deserves better than 'the black guy' He's done good things. He's the 'leader' of our party. To see someone that's a Democrat, or at the very least supporting someone running for the Democratic nomination refer to him as 'the black guy' is wrong among other things....

edited to clarify: It was not a Hillary supporter that said this. This was said ABOUT Hillary by a supporter of one of the other DEMOCRATIC candidates.

Don't know why this happens..

or when it started.

I sent an alert.

at 12:15 pm but the jury results read 9:15 am. This happens randomly. Everything else is in sync with my time except when I send an alert.

On Wed Jan 27, 2016, 09:15 AM you sent an alert on the following post:

The results arrived in my inbox at 12:56 pm.

It's very weird.

MSNBC, NH newspaper to hold unsanctioned Dem debate

The New Hampshire Union-Leader and MSNBC will hold an unsanctioned Democratic debate in the Granite State in early February that could threaten to put candidates who participate at odds with the Democratic National Committee.

The announcement comes as the DNC faces criticism for a meager debate schedule. The party has warned that any candidate who participates in an unsanctioned debate would be barred from future debates.
Paticipation by the party's top candidtes could threaten the DNC's hold on debates.

Martin O'Malley, who us running a distant third, is the only candiate so far to say he would be in the debate. But if Bernie Sanders agrees to participate, it would likely force Hillary Clinton to take part as well or risk being seen as reluctant to face her rivals face to face.

If the top two candidates do participate, that would increase the pressure on the DNC to back off its threat of sanctions.

The DNC has not said whether that prohibition will apply in this case.

The debate, to be moderated by "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, will be held on Feb. 4, five days before the New Hampshire primary. It stands to be the only debate between the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primaries--currently, the Jan. 19 debate was the last on the calendar until two days after the primary.

Trent Spiner, the Union-Leader's executive editor, told The Hill that he's been in contact with the DNC, but wouldn't speak for them as to whether that prohibition will apply.

"People are saying to me, 'We need another debate.' We feel like it's our job as a statewide newspaper to give the information that people need," he said.

"This isn't a fight about the schedule or anything like that. It's about giving the candidates a very good option--we have a lot of respect of Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow-- to travel to New Hampshire and be heard by millions of voters."


Bronco's Darmryius Thomas mom pardoned by President Obama....

Demaryius Thomas' mom to see him play for first time

When Demaryius Thomas takes the field Sunday afternoon, his biggest fan will be in the stadium for the first time in his NFL career.

Katrina Stuckey Smith, D.T.'s mother, will be watching Thomas play in-person for the first time ever, the Denver Post's Woody Paige reported Sunday.

Smith was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2000 on a drug trafficking charge. She's spent her son's entire professional career rooting him on from federal prison in Tallahassee, Florida.

In July, President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 46 federal prisoners, including Smith. She was released to a halfway house on Nov. 10, but couldn't travel for 60 days. The Broncos earning a first-round bye helped provide the perfect opportunity for her first trip to Denver this weekend. The visit was initially held up because Smith is not permitted to be in a drug environment -- Colorado has legalized marijuana -- but her parole officer allowed the trip.

mith's visit was speculated all week.

"Yeah, she can travel now, so we're working on that," Thomas said after Wednesday's practice, via ESPN.com. "It would mean a lot. It would be her first game. I would be excited. I know she'll be excited. It would mean to see her first game live."

If Thomas scores a touchdown Sunday, you can bet that football is going to his mother. It would be the perfect present for her first game with her Pro Bowl son.
