Hey Bart..

**

I am extremely disappointed in Obama. Jailing pot smokers. Drones. Still no Habeas Corpus. And on and on.
But I'd have to be an idiot not to recognize that perhaps as many as three Supreme Court justices will retire.
And I'm married to a woman and have many friends who are women.
The GOP is trying to disenfranchise women even to the point of redifining rape.

I have friends and relatives who are gay. The GOP wants them to wear their purple triangles.
And the GOP policies are turning the middle class into the poor class while doing their best to criminalize being poor.
And Mitt Romney is one of the guilty corporateers who is destroying and shipping jobs overseas.
So, I am taking a deep breath, holding my nose and voting for Obama and voting against all Republicans and their pet issues.
It is not only the correct thing to do, but a matter of survival as well.

VOTE REPUBLICAN! - (IronicTitle!)

Or So It Seems

Saturday, July 21, 2012

C’mon, folks! Let’s be serious. Why in God’s name would anyone in their right mind vote for politicians whose every word and deed serves only the wishes of their billionaire masters?
Want to see what America would look like as envisioned by these lackeys to Wall Street and the Oil

Companies? Vote Republican!
Better yet, imagine an America where the government has been crippled and hogtied when it comes to serving the needs of the poor, the infirm, the elderly or the middle class. Hell, just by gaining a majority in the House of Representatives they’ve been able to castrate the financial reforms voted in by the last congress. Just imagine what they could do with control of both the presidency and the congress!
The Republicans see no evil, speak no evil, or hear no evil when it comes to their billionaire bosses, even the ones most guilty of turning our once prosperous country into a nation of dogs fighting for scraps tossed from the tables of the wealthy.

LA Kings crowned Stanley Cup champions for 1st time, eliminating Devils in Game 6


**

By Greg Wyshynski | Puck Daddy



The Los Angeles Kings won their first Stanley Cup since the franchise was founded in 1967, eliminating the New Jersey Devils in Game 6, 6-1, on Monday night.

Goalie Jonathan Quick was given the Conn Smythe Trophy for playoff MVP.

Dustin Brown had a 3-point night, and Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis each had two goals in the Kings' victory, the crowning achievement for one of the most improbable postseason journeys in NHL history.

They're the first No. 8 seed to ever win the Stanley Cup. They tied an NHL record for road wins, going 10-1 away from home before winning the Cup on Staples Center ice. Overall, the Kings were 16-4 in the playoffs -- one of the best records in decades for a Stanley Cup champion.

RIP Ray Bradbury..




Sad..Once a year he would give about a 1 1/2 hr talk,for adults, at a Elememetry School in Manhantan Beach..I was lucky enough to go to one of them..He was one of the most interesting men I have ever heard speak..Very enjoyable..I'll never forget it..RIP Mr.Bradbury..

*******


Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and other beloved science fiction novels, died Tuesday night at the age of 91, according to the AP.

"His legacy lives on in his monumental body of books, film, television and theater, but more importantly, in the minds and hearts of anyone who read him, because to read him was to know him. He was the biggest kid I know," his grandson told the i09 science fiction blog.

Bradbury sold eight million copies of his books in 36 languages, according to The New York Times' obit.

He attributed his success as a writer to never having gone to college--instead, he read and wrote voraciously. "When I graduated from high school in 1938, I began going to the library three nights a week," he said in an interview with The Paris Review. "I did this every week for almost ten years and finally, in 1947, around the time I got married, I figured I was done. So I graduated from the library when I was twenty-seven. I discovered that the library is the real school."

"The universe is a little emptier right now," Texas A&M Commerce English Professor Robin Ann Reid told Yahoo News. She wrote a book about Bradbury's works and sits on the board of the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies. "There's less of that sense of joy and exulation that he was writing in his works all the way to the end."

A Supreme D'Oh !

Retired Supreme Court Justice Thinks the Court Is Rethinking Its Decision in Citizens United



Speaking in Little Rock, Arkansas on Wednesday, retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said he “expect[s] the the Court already has had second thoughts about the breadth of the reasoning in [Citizens United].” Stevens outlines four events that suggest the current court is rethinking its holding that the law cannot distinguish between actual people and corporations, including recent decisions allowing distinctions among certain kinds of speakers. These include a law prohibiting speech supporting a terrorist organization, even when the speech is expert advice intended only to support the group’s nonviolent activities, and a prohibition on foreigners making independent expenditures or direct contributions to campaigns. Stevens also agreed with President Obama’s criticisms of the Citizens United decision, stating his observations that it reversed a century of law, would increase interest group spending on elections, and opened the door to election spending by foreign corporations were “important and accurate.”

As for Kings' ups and downs, he's been there

--

While the NHL team readies for the Stanley Cup Final, a longtime loyalist savors their postseason run and keeps hoping — but with a sense of history.


A Kings fan cheers after Dwight King scored the winning goal in the third period to beat the Coyotes in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Western Conference finals. (Gina Ferazzi / Los Angeles Times / May 17, 2012)

-- By Hans Tesselaar May 26, 2012, 4:05 p.m.

When the Kings played at the Forum in the late 1980s and early '90s, there was an elderly vendor

who would set the tone for most games with his sales pitch. "Peanuts, peanuts, peanuts," he'd bark

out in a split second. "Get your peanuts. Three hours of torture coming up." He knew. Anyone who

has ever claimed to be a Kings fan knows. If you're new to this and ready to invest yourself in the

fortunes of the Kings over the next two weeks, be prepared. You may just get poked in the gut by a

stick, perhaps even an illegally curved one. I have been asked often these last few weeks if I've

enjoyed the Kings' incredible playoff run, which has them in the Stanley Cup Final for the second

time in team history. Sure I have. But that other skate is going to drop at any time, right? Teams just

don't go unbeaten on the road in the first three rounds and 12-2 overall while pursuing the most

cherished trophy in sports, do they? At least not teams called the Kings. The Penguins, the Red

Wings, the Oilers of the 1980s, the four-Cups-in-a-row Islanders, yes. The Kings? Until I see one of

their team captains (paging Dustin Brown) lift the Cup, I won't be fully able to appreciate the

journey. It's a defense mechanism that any long-suffering fan of any long-suffering team would

understand. Ask Red Sox fans pre-2004 and New York Rangers fans pre-1994. This madness started

in 1975 when I was 12 and my father took me to the Forum to see the Kings play the mighty Montreal Canadiens.

Yeah ! ! Now Let's Bring Home The Stanley Cup ! !

Kings take high road to Stanley Cup finals

Dustin Penner's overtime goal beats Phoenix, 4-3, as Kings continue perfect postseason away from Staples Center.

- LA Times
May 22, 2012, 11:17 p.m. 

GLENDALE, Ariz. — There was the celebratory group hug taking place by the glass, followed by a loud chorus of boos and then objects being tossed on the ice by some fans.

Yes, the Kings' long strange journey to the Stanley Cup finals — returning there again for the first time in 19 years — ended with one long thrilling night of hockey and in somewhat surreal fashion.

Weren't they supposed to be showered with champagne, not debris?

The final step of the journey back to the finals came courtesy of the man who received more criticism since he arrived in Los Angeles a little more than a year ago than any other Kings player in recent memory. The hero was left wing Dustin Penner who scored the game-winning goal on a rebound from the high slot with 2 minutes 18 seconds left in overtime Tuesday for a 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.

Penner's goal, his third of the playoffs and 10th point, clinched the Western Conference finals for the Kings, who won it, four games to one. The Kings will play the New Jersey Devils or the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup finals.

"He had a journey tonight. I stuck with him," Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said of Penner. "He struggled early in the game. Stuck with him."

Said Penner, who also had an assist: "It's the biggest goal of my career thus far. Hopefully there's a couple more waiting in the finals. I was at the right place at the right time."

He addressed what he had gone through this past season, his struggles on the ice and divorce proceedings that became public.

"I guess when you're in a hole that no one can really dig you out of except for yourself," he said. " I put that pressure and that stress on myself to get me out of where I was. I had great support from teammates, family, friends, the organization as a whole."

Kings captain Dustin Brown, following the tradition of hockey superstition, did not touch the Clarence Campbell Bowl, which goes to the Western Conference champion.

He and the Kings were the target of the fans' ire and postgame debris tossing at Jobing.com Arena because of the hit Brown delivered on defenseman Michal Rozsival in overtime.

But there is just one trophy on the radar — the Stanley Cup — and Brown made that clear on the ice and afterward in the dressing room. Still, he acknowledged the meaning of the moment for the franchise.

"This is huge," Brown said. "You're talking twice in 45 years, that makes this something special for the organization. We still have a lot to do. We don't want to follow in the footsteps of the '93 team. We have to get back to work and make the most of this."

No matter the opponent, the finals will begin on the road, a week from Wednesday. The Kings have not lost a game away from Staples Center during this playoff campaign. They are 8-0 on the road, an NHL record.

Subject: killing Medicare and Social Security

-

Bart,

Under W. the Reps tried to "privatize" Social Security, and they are similarly trying to privatize Medicare
(see the Ryan "budget"). You might wonder why; the total amount of money is not large by Wall Street standards.

The Supreme Court debate on Obamacare gives us a clue. If Social Security and Medicare are privatized,
the government will be creating a mandate on how people spend their money (how much needs to be invested,
how much needs to be put towards retirement, etc.), and given control of the collection process to a private industry.

In front of the Supreme Court, GOP attorneys are claiming Obamacare is unconstitutional because it is a government
mandate on how people spend their money, with the collection process delegated to a private industry.

So they believe that, if they can get these programs privatized, they can completely eliminate them!
That's been a goal of the far right since 1935 (for Social Security) and 1965 (for Medicare).

Linesmen Can't Blow The Whistle On Clowe -- Is It Time For A Rule Change?

by Niesy on Apr 6, 2012 2:00 PM PDT



As every hockey fan who's awake on planet Earth by now probably knows, Sharks forward Ryane Clowe prevented an odd-man rush by the Kings in a tie game late in the third period last night. While still on the bench, he leaned over the boards and used his stick to bat the puck away from Jarret Stoll. No ref made the call.

The Kings were on a power play at the time. Had Clowe been detected, the Kings would have had a two man advantage for half of a minute, and finished out most of the period in a crucial game with the man advantage. Instead, the game went on to overtime and then a shootout, possibly affecting the race for the division title.

While our fans are furious that four men in stripes missed such a blatant penalty--after all, someone should be watching the puck, right?--it turns out that the linesmen can't make that call.

I think it's time to change that rule. Here are my thoughts on the subject. Hopefully, this rundown will also answer any of your questions.

Let's go to the video:

Man whose WMD lies led to 100,000 deaths confesses all

Defector tells how US officials 'sexed up' his fictions to make the case for 2003 invasion

A man whose lies helped to make the case for invading Iraq – starting a nine-year war costing more than 100,000 lives and hundreds of billions of pounds – will come clean in his first British television interview tomorrow.

"Curveball", the Iraqi defector who fabricated claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, smiles as he confirms how he made the whole thing up. It was a confidence trick that changed the course of history, with Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi's lies used to justify the Iraq war.
