What did Paul Ryan do for Thanksgiving?

Until tomorrow. Next week I'll start discussing the promise of the Obama Economy.

I hope Thanksgiving was warm and comforting.

Asked Tuesday (click here) why he lost his home county and home town of Janesville, Wis., in the election, former GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan chalked it up to the fact that more voters came to view him as “Paul Ryan, Republican” rather than “Paul Ryan, Janesville guy” following his ascension to the national party ticket....
Not sure how we would ever top yesteday's Small Business Saturday (click here) when we were wonderfully surprised by a shopping visit from President Obama and his daughters Sasha and Malia!

In answer to the many, many questions we've received:

  • We found out they were coming about 10 minutes (!) before they arrived.
  • No, we can't share specific titles they purchased. Virtually every bookstore has a policy regarding the privacy of customer purchases.  We can say they purchased a number of books as gifts for kids.
  • They all were wonderful, gracious and very friendly....

President Barack Obama (click here) took some time out of his busy schedule to promote “Small Business Saturday.” The president and his daughters visited One More Page Books (an independently owned bookstore) in Arlington, VA Saturday, according to a White House pool report.
Mr. Obama bought 15 children’s books during his visit to be given as gifts to family members for Christmas. ”Preparation,” he told shop owner Eileen McGervey when asked how he was able to purchase books without browsing the shop’s selection first, according to the report. “That’s how I shop.”
President Obama and the White House are urging Americans to take part in “Small Business Saturday.”According to the official Facebook page of “Small Business Saturday” (which has more than 3.2 million likes), participants in this special retail day visit non-franchise shops and restaurants or buy gifts from independently owned stores online.
“From the mom-and-pop storefront shops that anchor Main Street to the high-tech startups that keep America on the cutting edge, small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the cornerstones of our nation’s promise,” Mr. Obama said in a statement on Black Friday. “Through events such as Small Business Saturday, we keep our local economies strong and help maintain an American economy that can compete and win in the 21st century.”...

Children are a theme to this White House. First Lady Michelle Obama always seems to have children, especially those of military families, filling the halls of the White House.

The Obamas are pretty cool. They have filled the White House with more than ceremony, they have filled it with the laughter of children on a regular basis.

Still yet another natural gas explosion.

A minor mistake results in injuries, infrastructure damage and residents fearing for more tragedy.

...Friday night's natural gas blast in one of New England's largest cities was caused by "human error," State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan said at a news conference. He didn't name the Columbia Gas worker who pierced the high-pressure pipe in Springfield.
The blast flattened a strip club, heavily damaged a day care center and scattered debris over several blocks.
Some officials called it a miracle that no one was killed. The cause of the spark that ignited the explosion is still unknown....
It is called a spark. It happens when something punctures metal. Personally, I think someone has a grudge against strip clubs. This is the second one in a week that ended the careers of local hopefuls. Look, there is always hope again with the next wet T-shirt contest.
...The gas company (click here) planned a news conference for later Sunday afternoon. A message left for a company spokeswoman wasn't immediately returned.
Most of the injured were part of a group of gas workers, firefighters and police officers who ducked for cover behind a utility truck just before the blast. Part of the neighborhood already had been evacuated because of reports of a gas leak and odor.
Preliminary reports showed the blast damaged 42 buildings housing 115 residential units. Three buildings were immediately condemned, and 24 others require additional inspections by structural engineers to determine whether they are safe.
Springfield, which is 90 miles west of Boston and has about 150,000 residents, is the largest city in western Massachusetts. It's known as the home of the Basketball Hall of Fame, which is not near the blast site....

So, at the news confernce did the natural gas company state what they are doing to make all their lines PUNCTURE resistant?

...From the Bay of Fundy to Long Island Sound, (click here) new technologies are harnessing the power of ocean tides and winds, promising not only an inexhaustible source of energy, but also hundreds of jobs, billions in revenues, and new life for struggling fishing communities along New England’s 473-mile coastline.
This future is still far off, but the first steps toward it are underway. Since September, an underwater generator built by a Maine company has used the powerful tides of Cobscook Bay near the Canadian border to make electricity distributed by local utilities. Researchers at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, as well as universities in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, are working together to demonstrate similar technologies in the Cape Cod Canal and ­Muskeget Channel off Martha’s Vineyard....

Isn't it time to move more quickly into the future? Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and there is a question about what exactly? The location of the ocean currents or the technology that delivers the electricity? What is the problem already?

What Good Ole Boy Grover Norquist stated on his Twitter feed was a Turd Blossom.

24 Nov
Avenge at Walmart today.

Staring to get the picture?

What is a turd blossom? No, it is not Rove. That is just a pet name for Rove because Rove is the master of the turd blossom.

A turd blossom is a thought that will sell well to the Club of People with Shit for Brains.

Turd blossoms are suppose to spread to all those even those outside the Club of People with Shit for Brains.

Turd blossoms is why Willard Mitt Romney stated, "Fact checkers don't matter." It is why the media is always the 'biased liberal media' or 'the lame stream media.' It is because they don't have shit for brains so they have to be villainized for a reason to disregard them.

Turd blossoms are how the GOP functions. The GOP just has to 'give them a reason.' So, Norquist, the Good Old Boy gave the Club of People with Shit for Brains are reason for being angry with those outside their club. It gives them a reason to become infectious to the USA's economy in favor of those more powerful than they.

There is a real methodology to turd blossoms. The methodology demands the turd blossom be believable and common sense. It doesn't have to be based in facts or the truth and why the GOP refuses to give credence to the Lame Stream Media and fact checkers. A Turd Blossom has to be believable and easily understood by those with shit for brains.

See. It is easy to live life when you have shit for brains. Just get on the gravy train and 'keep believing.'

In the South we have a name for someone like Good Ole Boy Grover Norquist.


This is the part no one likes to hear and calls hubris. It isn't.

We say, "He hasn't got shit for brains."

That doesn't mean he is not successful, it just means he got success in spite of the fact he's got shit for brains.

See, it is easier to live life with shit for brains. It saves a lot of money, too. I mean why pay for Harvard if there is no reason. So long as the economy works for you if you have shit for brains then everyone with shit for brains believes they can be as successful as everyone else that has shit for brains.

See Murdoch has made a life out of taking people for a ride when those people have shit for brains. It is how Cheney gets an energy committee and Halliburton with no bid contracts. Because, when people are 'on the take' of a military industrial complex the size of the USA military industrial complex they enlist everyone into their 'Club for those with Shit for Brains.' 

So, I don't have to go on, now do it? Unless, of course, you have shit for brains.

Norquist doesn't understand what happened to the USA economy?

Grover Norquist, founder of Americans for Tax Reform, displays a copy of the pledge that he encourages politicians to sign. At left is a Guy Fawkes mask given to him by an acquaintance. Fawkes was famous for attempting to blow up the English House of Lords in 1605. (Bill O'Leary - The Washington Post)

What right does he have to speak to the USA tax structure if he doesn't even realize what occurred to the USA economy?

Asker's Comment:
thank you for ur answer, at the moment i cant go to the store and look, i've been looking for the price online and i cant find it, i guess its not a popular conversation.....

According to Good Ole Boy Grover Norquist the American people are allowed to be consumers without quality of life to deliver maximized profits to Wall Street.

What Good Ole Boy Grover Norquist didn't stop to realize is that when counting on impoverished Americans to be the consumer of products it causes contraction of the USA economy. When that occurs the global economy tanks. So, while Good Ole Boy Grover Norquist has made a lot of money pretending he knows what is best for the USA, he had no clue and his comment about Twinkies and Walmart is proof.

Unions are the only economic mechanism (and not the Fed) that have held the line on impoverishment, extending the USA economy and the tax base of the USA. If Good Ole Boy Grover Norquist wanted to continue to shrink the tax footprint of the USA on CONSUMERS, he should have asked Georgie "W" Bush why he drained the USA Treasury, the surplus and any and all fiscal reserves of the USA federal government while running the National Debt up!

Lucky for Good Ole Boy Grover Norquist that Food Stamps / SNAP covers "Little Debbie's Cloud Cake" at Walmart. It continues to provide profits to Walmart and Little Debbie.

Republicans are endangering the nation's security.

The desperate Republicans of the USA continue politicizing the State Department and Ambassadors and Consulates around the world.

In regard to Benghazi the argument in the media ASSUMES the public had a right to the information the USA intelligence community had about any terrorist attack.

Do I have to say this?

Who in the hell gave the Republicans the right to release information about USA intelligence the agencies have not consented to? Is everyone 'getting this?'

Do sane person in the world believe as soon as information is released to the USA media the rest of the world pays attention? By any chance does anyone in the USA media 'get it?' Any chance at all?

McCain and Graham are engaged in removing USA intelligence protocol for the purpose of national security. Please tell me the USA media is not lined with morons from one end to the other!

The question is NOT, why did Ambassador Rice say what she said. She said what the USA intelligence stated she was to say. The question IS, "Why are two USA Senators seeking to invoke the actions of a USA Ambassador in a DIFFERENT manner dictated by the USA intelligence community?" What right do they have to state there is a role of a USA Ambassador other than one dictated by the national security of the USA and its State Department Consulates?

Are there wall to wall morons everywhere except in the Obama Administration or is this the latest 'fire storm' of political gossip of the day? Because none of what is being stated by the USA Republican Senators MATTER !!!!!!!

The fatwa of peace, prosperity and a future for Gaza's children.

It's back to business for Palestinian fish vendors in Gaza City on Sunday after Israel eased restrictions on Gaza fishermen following a truce brokered by Egypt after a week of fierce fighting. (Reuters)
3:35AM EST November 25. 2012
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A leading Islamic cleric (click here) in the Gaza Strip has ruled it a sin to violate the recent cease-fire between Israel and the Hamas militant group that controls the Palestinian territory.
The fatwa, or religious edict, issued by Suleiman al-Daya late Saturday accords a religious legitimacy to the truce and could justify any act by Gaza's government to enforce it.
"Honoring the truce, which was sponsored by our Egyptian brethren, is the duty of each and every one of us. Violating it shall constitute a sin," the fatwa read.
The Wednesday truce put an end to an eight-day Israeli offensive against Gaza militants who fired rockets into Israel. The agreement remains fragile because details beyond the initial cease-fire have not yet been worked out.
