Boehner Debt Bill Passes House, Gets Defeated In Senate (UPDATE)


Does Bachmann and her fellow Tea Party members actually think holding the government hostage will further her chance of becoming president? Don't they realize this isn't about politics? Let's play out a very hypothetic­al scenario: The US goes into default and come election time Bachmann becomes president (this is hypothetic­al now) how in the hell does she think she will be able to turn things around when clearly she doesn't understand basic economy? It took years to get to this point and will take level heads and smart thinkers to get us out, of which she doesn't seem to have either.



It is time to get real. Boehner grow some balls and make a stand!

Facebook's Randi Zuckerberg: Anonymity Online 'Has To Go Away'


Throw a rock in a pack of dogs and if nothing is heard no dog was hit. But the moment you hear a bark you know you hit a dog. What is the big deal with revealing your identity? Facebook clearly states your real name MUST be used. Those who have averted the process have already created Facebook fraud and broke the rule. If that is the case, why use Facebook? Even using an alias you are subject to big brother watching. What is the big deal? I would rather save one life then to allow millions to create psuedo names for the purpose of probably (for some) being deviant and not to protect their so called privacy. Please!

Entire Massachusetts Congressional Delegation Appears In 'It Gets Better' Video -- Except Scott Brown


I am not at all surprised by the "linear view points" expressed to my missive. You all would have to be completely biased in your thoughts if you don't see for half a second if "Scott Brown" who has been moderate in his views and supported the President in some instances would become the poster child for the left if he were to make a video "it gets better." Why can't his actions (which is far better, speak for him)?



This one video would be used by all on the left to say "Brown" actually share views of the left and not of his own party, and it wouldn't stop there it would be used for left campaigns and what not? But that all aside, why is it he must make the video? Why not go after other Republican­s as well? There's Rep. Snow or Aaron Schock who would definitely make a splash? You see it's all about politics and you all refuse to see and accept it. Don't get me wrong the message of hope is good, but why pick and choose who delivers the message?

That being said, I watched Sharpton guest host Uygur and found him to be awful. Not that I expected better for Uygur wasn't that much better. I always thought Uygur was a fill in, but talk about loyalty. These TV guys feel that their words are gospel and no one else can incorrectl­y dissect the news as they do. Wake up!

Not knowing what he is thinking or planning drives many crazy, but somehow he manages to pull it together. I don't always agree with him, but he seems to be a formidable opponent.

Amy Winehouse Dead: Singer Found Dead At London Home


You say heartlessn­ess I say truthfulne­ss. I am not without sympathy for her family and loved ones. I enjoyed her music, but this type of self-destr­uctive behavior and its end results is a lesson (unfortuna­tely) many who are in similar shoes can learn from. A fast track to fame will only lead you to a fast track to nowhere. Learning first to deal with the issues and knowing when to back off and out of stardom to care for ones self is crucial. Look at the many young starletts today who have gotten so much in a small portion of time and can't handle. What happens? They turn to drugs or alcohol and develop dependenci­es. Heck not only the young, but the old. Fame is addictive for some and when you don't have it you will sometimes lean or look for something else.



So while I would have hoped Ms. Winehouse could have been saved, but perhaps other see what happened to her and straighten up. Allow this to be a wake up call.

Thomas Roberts: Michele Bachmann Would 'Extinguish' Gay People (VIDEO)


Unbelievab­le! This is why we have HLN, FOX, CNN and even MSNBC in hopes that one of them will get it right and just report the news. When commentary is rendered in with the news it should be noted accordingl­y. What Mr. Roberts was engaging in is self commentary to scare. The job of the media is to report the news and be truthful. At one point many were on Obama's case for not moving swift enough on ending DADT and moving on gay marraige. Now this dangers rhetoric: "You will replace [Obama] with a person who would extinguish you." Had the President not moved on DADT and gay marriage would he too be considered a person who would "extinguis­h you?"



Just report the news please. Enough of the scare tactics.

Obama: Defense Of Marriage Act Should Be Repealed


Geez! So many haters commenting­. How about being grateful that the President is doing something? Nothing ever takes place right away. It's all about timing. You can force a matter and things fall apart or you can be the President and think methodical­ly and do what is best for all and not a few critics. Had there been anyone else in the White House (let's say a John McCain or Sarah Palin) do you actually think the whole gay marriage issue would have gotten this far?
