Tell Speaker Boehner to squash the lawsuit & the impeachment talk ~ a repost

Originally posted on Point4CounterPoint:

It is important that voters know Republicans are not only using Taxpayer money to sue POTUS, but their 50 votes to repeal ACA cost $34Billion, the Benghazi hearings Millions, the GOP Shutdowns = $24Billion and the IRS hearings about  $14Million + … just to name a few. Voters, who normally side with Republicans, need to ask their representative to acknowledge this behavior as big government…Nativegrl77

Bottom line: President Obama’s impeachment could be a reality if we don’t step up in a BIG way.

The only way we can force Boehner to squash this impeachment talk is with an absolute EXPLOSION of grassroots support.

REPUBLICANS WITHDRAW IMPEACHMENT CHARGE AGAINST OBAMA

Originally posted on :

imageWashington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Last week, The Adobo Chronicles reported that Republicans in Congress have voted to impeach President Barack Obama for bringing disgrace to the Office of the President.  The move stemmed from Obama wearing a tan-colored suit at a White House press briefing. Republican legislators had said that no other president in U.S. history has ever worn a light-colored suit. They were one in saying that U.S. presidents should dignify the office by wearing only dark suits.tan suit

However, after photos of Presidents Reagan, George H. and George W., as well as Clinton wearing light-colored suits appeared on social media, the Republicans immediately withdrew their impeachment charge.

“We apologize for this fiasco,” Speaker John Boehner said, adding, ” our legislative staff didn’t do a good job at research. Some heads are gonna roll!”

Meanwhile, The White House responded by saying , “Wait till the Republicans discover photos…

25 Before 25

Earlier this week, I celebrated my 24th birthday. I spent the day at orientation for my upcoming Public Relations degree, securing a room in a beautiful townhouse, celebrating with friends in downtown Toronto, and reflecting on all that I’ve achieved and experienced over the past year. It was truly a perfect day.

As someone who loves long-form to-do lists (read: my Korean Bucket List) and having “all of the experiences”, I wanted a way to first, set realistic goals for 24, and second, to share and document them. My friend Steph over at Life in Limbo created just that – a long-form to-do list, after her 23rd birthday in March, called “24 Before 24“. The concept is simple: a list of goals to increase her happiness over the course of the next year. I fell in love with this idea the first time she did this two year ago, (check out her “22 Before 22“…

Dumb And Dumber Headed To Texas Border

King-Bachmann

I couldn’t resist posting this article.  The headline had me at “Dumb and Dumber…”  So apropos for these two.

Liberaland

U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said on Friday that he is heading to the Texas-Mexico border this weekend to assess the current immigration crisis, and he will be joined by Michele Bachmann (R-Minn).

They will visit the areas of Brownsville, McAllen and Laredo, meeting with the Border Patrol and local officials. King has been a critic of  immigration reform and has called for toughening border security, according to KCCI.

His jaw dropping statements such as immigrants weighing “130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert,” will only add to the problem.

Stuff King shouldn’t say again while visiting our Southern Border:

“We could also electrify this wire (on the border) with the kind of current that…

Rethinking the American Narrative

Originally posted on Reconnecting to the American Promise:

by ChuckHunt [1]

For some time, I have been questioning when the American narrative actually began. From reading the popular histories today, it seems we are fixated on the late 1700s, when our foundational documents and institutions begin to emerge. The period leading up to July of 1776 seems a popular date.

This question resurfaced recently when I started reflecting on the differences between Americans and Europeans. After having spent over five years in Europe, mostly in France, representing the people of the United States, I began to appreciate the differences between the outlooks of Europeans and Americans. The optimism and the “can do” orientation of many Americans I knew stood in contrast to the pragmatism, realism and at times cynicism of many Europeans.

These experiences led me to question how the American narrative diverged from European perspectives and cultures. Many Americans today are descended from Europeans who arrived here…

Marriage equality moves to Miami

Originally posted on You Think You Know:

Yesterday, another judge in Florida overturned that state’s ban on same-sex marriage – this time in Miami-Dade County.  It is the second such ruling in florida after Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia struck down the ban for the Florida Keys.  Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel found the constitutional amendment approved by Florida voters in 2008 discriminates against gay people, saying it violates their right to equal protection under the law guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment.  She writes,

Preventing couples from marrying solely on the basis of their sexual orientation serves no governmental interest.  It serves only to hurt, to discriminate, to deprive same-sex couples and their families of equal dignity, to label and treat them as second-class citizens, and to deem them unworthy of participation in one of the fundamental institutions of our society.

Garcia’s earlier ruling was put on hold when Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi filed…

“The GOP’s 20-Year War On Health Care”: Republicans Are Going To Extraordinary Lengths To See That More Americans Die

Originally posted on mykeystrokes.com:

Stop the presses: John Boehner admitted Thursday that the Republican Party’s long-awaited alternative to Obamacare needs a little more time in the oven. “You know, the discussions about Obamacare and what the replacement bill would look like continue. We’re trying to build consensus around one plan,” the Speaker told Hill reporters. “Not there yet.”

As if you even needed me to tell you, rest assured: It could be six months from now, a year from now, five years from now, or the day Bibi Netanyahu and Khaled Mashal share a Nobel Peace Prize—they aren’t going to have a plan. Oh, they might have a “plan.” They had a “plan” last year, or at least Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn and two others did. For about two days, they were really tooting its horn. Then it dawned on people that paying for it would involve a hefty middle-class tax increase, on higher-end…

Jews and Arabs Refuse to be Enemies

I want BOTH these kids to be safe, don’t you?

Two days ago I saw a little news blurb about a priest in Palestine who told his Muslim neighbors that “If your mosque is blown up, use our church for your prayers.” This made me smile, this sounds like a real Christian.

Today the hashtag #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies has gone viral with photos of Jews and Arabs…refusing to be enemies. Brilliant! What if we all just refused to be enemies!! It reminds me of a protest slogan from the Vietnam era: “What if they gave a war and nobody came?”

It would be the end of war! How revolutionary is that? It would turn the world upside down. Oh, the war profiteers would try even harder to stir up hatred, maybe do some false flags, like blow up a building and blaming it on the designated enemy. But we are even…
