Saturday Update

  •  So, who believes that the Warriors were blown out by the Cavs? I’m just asking because I still don’t believe it. The Cavs can’t score that much in practice. That was crazy. (The thing that makes the Warriors different from the Suns of 5 or 6 years ago, who have been a scoring machine for over a decade, is defense. Suddenly the whole team forgot how to play defense. Really??)
  • Did you notice that Anti-Sharia Law rallies happened yesterday? So, we are rallying to prevent something that no one is asking for right? Okay…
  • We know that Trump has become successful by buffalo’ing his way into and over problems. Firing Comey is a disaster of his own making.  Why did Trump want to meet with Comey so many times? Why did they need to meet in private? I’m thinking that there are tapes. Trump wants to write a book to document his greatness. So there are tapes but he will not release them until he is compelled to. Without tapes it is Trump’s word against Comey’s.
  • GOP is still pushing to take away healthcare from Americans. (There is no talk of replacement.)

Counterprotest against Westboro Baptist Church

I really don’t understand. I don’t understand how some people who worship the same God that I do believe that it’s okay to say that God hates homosexuals (this is not the word they use). As far as I know, the Bible is about love. The Bible is about loving God and about God’s love for us. The Bible is not about hate. It has never been about hate and retribution. I just don’t understand how some people believe it’s okay to protest at a funeral. I just don’t understand…


From TP:

Today, friends and families gathered in Raleigh, NC to mourn Elizabeth Edwards, who died this week after battling cancer. Outside, a small group of protesters from the extremist anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church picketed the event because they said Edwards “spent her life in defiance and disobedience to God.” The church regularly harasses the families of dead American soldiers by picketing homosexuality at their funerals with signs like “pray for more dead soldiers,” and “your sons are in hell.”

But at Edwards’ funeral today, the tiny group of hate mongers was confronted by more than 300 counterprotesters, who turned out to stand against hate, despite the rain:

Members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church picketed the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards in Raleigh, N.C. Saturday. But they were vastly outnumbered by a “human buffer” of people who quietly stood in the rain singing Christmas carols and carrying signs reading “God loves Elizabeth Edwards” or simply “Grace” and “Hope.” […]

In a 2007 interview, Mrs. Edwards described herself as “completely comfortable with gay marriage,” hence the Westboro protesters at the funeral. But on Saturday just five church members (two of them children) showed up to picket, waving hateful signs about Mrs. Edwards and the United Methodist Church where the service was held.

Are you kidding me? Jefferson? Really?

So, your campaign manager mentions, “Don’t keep $90,000 in cash in your freezer.”  Unfortunately, you don’t follow your manager’s advise and the FBI finds the cold hard cash (pun intended) in your freezer. So, how does your campaign figure out a way for you to win your congressional bid?



U.S. Rep. William Jefferson easily defeated his fellow Democratic opponent in a runoff election Saturday, despite an ongoing federal bribery investigation.

In complete but unofficial returns, Jefferson, Louisiana’s first black congressman since Reconstruction, received 57 percent of the vote over state Rep. Karen Carter, who had 43 percent.

Carter was unable to capitalize on a scandal that included allegations the FBI found $90,000 in bribe money in Jefferson’s freezer.

In a concession speech, Carter embraced family members and pledged to work with Jefferson, especially on the area’s recovery from Hurricane Katrina.  more
