GOP Struggling to Recruit
Nobody wants to join the losers


Republicans are struggling to recruit strong U.S. Senate candidates in states
where the party has the best chances to reclaim the majority in Washington.
It's a potentially troubling sign that the GOP's post-2012 soul-searching could
spill over into next year's congressional elections.
The vote is more than 18 months away, so it's early. But candidate recruitment
efforts are well underway, and thus far Republicans have been unable to field a
top-tier candidate in Iowa or Michigan.
In those two Mideast swing states, the GOP hopes to make a play for seats
left open by the retirement of veteran Democrats.
The GOP is facing the prospect of contentious and expensive primaries in Georgia
and perhaps West Virginia, Republican-leaning states where incumbents, one from
each party, are not running again.

You guys need to reach out to gays, the poor, women and Latinos.

Oh, that's tight - Rush says you can't fo that, so just go on losing.

GOP Donors Push Gay Marriage
Your boss isn't going to like this...


In the wake of the 2012 election, many Republican strategists have concluded they simply
cannot win as long as they seem so "polarizing."  One of the more contentious issues is gay
marriage, with those on the left often accusing Republicans of being intolerant.  But now,
a national group of prominent GOP donors is pouring new money into lobbying efforts to
get Republican lawmakers to vote to make gay marriage legal.  

ha ha

The Republicans are suddenly so gay!
American Unity PAC was formed last year to lend financial support to Republicans who
bucked the party's longstanding hatred of those awful fags. Its founders are launching a
new lobbying organization, American Unity Fund, and already have spent more than
$250,000 in Minnesota, where the Legislature could vote on the issue as early as next week.

Rush isn't going to like this - neither is Sarah Palin or FOX News.

Pot Smokers can be Fired
Colorado court ruling makes no sense


Pot smokers can be fired even if it was used for medical purposes and off duty.
While marijuana use is legal in Colorado, appeals court says pot smokers can still
be fired because the drug is still barred by federal law.

Medical and recreational marijuana may be legal in Colorado, but employers in the
state can lawfully fire workers who test positive for the drug, even if it was used off duty,
according to a court ruling Thursday.

The Colorado Court of Appeals found there is no employment protection for medical
marijuana users in the state since the drug remains barred by the federal government.

"For an activity to be lawful in Colorado, it must be permitted by, and not contrary to,
both state and federal law," the appeals court stated in its 2-1 conclusion.

That would be telling the voters to toss off.
Why have elections if the court's going to overturn the results?

The patchwork of laws across the nation and state-federal conflict has left the issue unclear.

That, and Obama's dithering.

Obama said, "It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after
recreational (pot) users in states that have determined that it's legal,"    Link

So why didn't the Colorado court get that memo?

Sure, we can't have school bus drivers driving the kids while puffing some reefer,
but a desk guy who smokes one Friday night can get fired even if he has a prescription?

Maybe the moral is "Don't work for Dish Network," the assholes who fired this guy

I assume, as time goes by, they'll eventually pull their heads out and fix this.
At least the Pot Genie is out of the bottle and she ain't going back in.

Subject: Obama, Pot and Gavin Newsome


I went to a discussion last week as part of the L.A. Times Festival of Books.
On stage was Gavin Newsome, the former mayor of San Francisco and the current
Lt. Governor of California. He was one of the first to legalize same sex marriage,
and got Health Care for the people of SF.

He was saying how when Obama was first elected he put up a website called
(or something like that)  He wanted people to write in on what their number one issue was,
and he was going to try to work to do something about it.

Was it the Iraq War?
Was it Guantanamo?
Was it Jobs?
Was it The Housing Collapse?

So the people voted and the number one issue they were concerned with?
The Legalization of Marijuana.
Obama then quietly had the website taken down.   (That was cowardly.)

So don't expect anything different from him in the future.

Duck Dynasty Ratings Blast
Had more viewers than American Idol


The Season 3 finale of A&E‘s Duck Dynasty was watched by 9.6 million viewers,
a record for the series and the network. With a 4.3 rating, it was the highest-rated show
on both cable and broadcast Wednesday, easily beating American Idol’s 3.2.

Last night’s episode garnered 5.6 million viewers in adults 25-54, 5.5 million adults 18-49 and
2.6 million adults 18-34 to become the most-watched series telecast in A&E’s history in all demos.

That is a 41% rise in 18-49 over last season’s finale and a 47% rise in 25-54.
A&E announced that production on a fourth season of Duck Dynasty is scheduled to start shortly.
Despite a stand-off between the Robertson family cast and producers over money, the family all
have existing deals and are expected to show up for filming of Season 4. As for their salary demands
(an increase to as much as $200,000 an episode), a new agreement is being hammered out.

I watched a few minutes of this show and didn't get it.

Someone said these guys all have degrees,
but they talk like the bad guys in Deliverance.

What am I missing?

Military Rape for Sport
Would you sign a petition?


Dear MoveOn member,

In 1989, I volunteered for the U.S. Navy. I was assigned a duty station in Adak, Alaska.
I got there on Valentine's Day, and within two months, I was raped for the first time.

The people involved in my rapes were military police personnel, security personnel,
higher-ranking officers—the people that I would have gone to and reported.
And so, I have never had the opportunity to actually report it to anyone.

According to estimates from the Department of Defense, 19,000 service men and women
are sexually assaulted while serving in the United States military every year. But 86% of
them never report their assault—too often because seeking justice threatens their safety,
their job security, and their future.

That's why I created a petition urging the U.S. Senate to ensure that survivors of
military sexual assault are not invisible and receive the justice they deserve.
Congress must amend the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and move
the prosecution of military sexual assault out of the chain of command.
  Tina McDonald

I signed it with a note that said,
"Shame on congress for allowing rape to be a perk for our military men."

It's 2013 - when it rape going to be unacceptable?

Is Americal Idol Fixed?
No, and that's why the show is broken

American Idol has a problem - unattractive, can't-draw-a-crowd people keep winning.

The two Idols who made a splash are Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.
The others fell into obscurity so fast, you only seem them doing pity gigs on FOX.

Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook,
Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze and Scotty McCreery, Phillip Phillips - where'd they all go?
Idol has been criticized for pushing Angie Miller this year.

They're doing that because she's the cute one who might actually make it in show business.
She has a nice figure, she smiles a lot and she can even sing a little.

Idol needs another chart-topper and Angie is their best bet,
so hell yes, for survival's sake, they want her to win.

But, there is a flaw in my reasoning...

For some reason, more people would rather watch these guys than Angie Miller.

Maybe kids today don't know about sex?

Conan Hosts a Yawnfest
Obama was much funnier than Team Coco


Conan O'Brien hosted the 2013 White House Press Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night,
and according to reports, he didn't exactly stun the crowd.
The WaHoPo's Mike Berman described it as "a largely tepid routine that didn't particularly
wow the crowd or this viewer," saying it was "neither incisive nor memorable."

Among other things, Conan joked about CNN's accuracy, how C-SPAN was
"an entire channel shot with the backup camera on a Ford Explorer" and
how he
wished they could hold the event at a hotel nicer than the Hilton

Conan had MONTHS to work on 20 minutes of killer comedy
(and 22 writers to help him) and that's the best he could do?

He did three jokes on what an awful hellhole the DC Hilton was.
It reeked of overkill - can that particular Hilton really that bad?
Or does the Hilton hotel have to be bad because America hates Paris Hilton?
There's a reason Conan's not on broadcast TV - he's just not that funny.

Oh, and did you hear?
Conan donated his $10,000 salary to the WHCD Epilepsy Fund - good for him,
but that's awfully easy to do after NBC paid him $45M to just go away.

Hey Bart,
That was me who bought the white Sony Walkman mp3 player with bluetooth
headphones via your Amazon portal. I am so happy to contribute to the treehouse
by doing what I'd normally do anyway.

I LOVE this little player. I had one of its earlier cousins, but got it wet and it didn't
work anymore, so I upgraded. I can't believe how nice this player is for the price I paid.

The sound is loud, the earbuds actually stay in my ears without a lot of maneuvering,  the battery
life is ridic, and it works like a flash drive - no need to install software to manage media. I flipping
hate mp3 media-managing software. I also got the accessories pack with the extra chargers and the
silicone case. Retails for $35, got it for like $6 on Amazon. Amazon rocks.

Keep swinging and I'll keep using your portal to shop on Amazon,

Leanna, thanks for that.

Our president has been cowed by corporate interests since day one.
My guess is he would love nothing more than to light up a joint in the Rose Garden, but...

Someone wrote and said, "Obama, the Black President, CAN'T be the one to legalize dope."

I get that, but we don't need for him to do that.
When asked about busting por growers and dispensaries, all he has to say is,
"We have so many other, bigger problems to worry about. Jobs, terrorism, North Korea..."

That would be all the signal anyone needs.

in the 1970s. He was every bit the man people saw on the TV. Scared us all by
just saying hello with that voice. Impeccably dressed and asked where he could
go to have a cigarette.
