One More Before I Let It Go

One of my favourite bloggers Josh Marshall at TPM writes, Shame on Obama? For progressives mad at their president, at some level, that’s understandable. They have no relationship with and expect only the worst from the Breitbarts and Fox Newses of the world. But with Obama they expect more. And it’s personal. Still, you just…

Note To Mrs. Sherrod

CONGRATULATIONS for making history, Madam! Other than sharing your gender and your profession of government service, I do not have anything common with you and your priceless years of experience.  This is not an advice but a humble request. I wish to impress upon you to reconsider your decision not to take the job offered…

Thank You, President Obama!

Thank you, Tom Vilsack! Thank you President Obama, for expeditiously taking steps to make right a terrible wrong done to a good service person. Thank you for restoring faith in Mrs. Sherrod and all others who believe in truth, in honesty, in hard work and in becoming a better person inspite of many personal misfortunes…

Shame On You, President Obama!

I find it very, very depressing to read about Shirley Sherrod’s recent ‘moment of realisation’…. Crooks And Liars reports: Shirley Sherrod was an employee of the USDA; specifically, the USDA Georgia director of rural development. In a speech to the Georgia chapter of the NAACP, she tells a story that appears to indicate she prefers to…

Fly-By-Newbies

I bought some hanging lanterns for my backyard, which I promptly converted into bird-feeders and placed all the four lanterns in different corners of my backyard and guess who came visiting….???

Wascally Wabbits

With tomatoes behaving well within their rings, trampy sunflower-plant unable to hide its multi-colour offspirings (I can’t wait to see the colour of the middle-bloom) and the smiling black-eye-susans who can blame these “Wascally Wabbits”, (name stolen from John Cole of The Balloon Juice) dreamily drooling over these treats?

Why Progressives Eviserate POTUS?

I have been following several progressives like G3, express their utter disbelief and disappointment with President Obama. I  have been  trying to understand their point of view and I must admit they have me totally confused at their rationale!! In my opinion: 1: By 2008, economy was tanking like crazy, jobs were melting like ice-cream…

G3 Eviserates Obama

G3, my friend from south of the border, writes: Naomi Klein talked about the Afghan war protests during G20.  Like she said, it is again we the common people who pay for the war – be it through taxes (and service cuts ), putting our lives on the line for the Empire’s follies or getting…

Three Gals On A Roll

JMS from California joins me and my new walking buddy ASqr (AA) on weekly walk challenge (minimum half an hour a day or a minimum 3 hours, 30 minutes per week). July 10: ASqr clocked 40 minutes,  I clocked 70 minutes and JMS yet to report July 11: ASsqr clocked 40 minutes, I clocked 1…

Bring Them Home Already (part 2)

On November 5, 2009, I posted, “Bring Them Home Already”. And today my heart feels lighter after  reading this at DAILY KOS, (read the whole post here): U.S. Troop Strength In Iraq 2003-2010 May 2003 150,000 – Invasion force October 2007 171,000 – Height of Surge January 2009 142,000 – Beginning Obama administration February 140,000 March…
