The State Of The Union

President Barack Obama meets with senior advisors in the Oval Office, Jan. 27, 2014.

Kitchen Edition


Silicon Valley Kossacks are having their first meeting watching SOTU together. Updates may or may not happen as the evening progresses.

Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share part of the evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, and interesting videos, as well as links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate.

Readers may notice that most who post diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but newcomers should not feel excluded. We welcome guests at our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.

5:59 PM PT (Glen The Plumber): Lusty's pot roast...yum...yum...yum.

6:35 PM PT (Glen The Plumber): no natural gas..!!!!! fracking...!!!

6:36 PM PT: "But the debate is settled.  Climate change is a fact.  And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did."

Fracking comes to mind… how about for you?

6:41 PM PT: "...this congress needs to restore the unemployment insurance that you just let expire," "you heartless bastards!" (thank you, Glen)."

Congress, give them that chance… if you are not standing up you are saying no, I won't give you a chance.

6:51 PM PT: BayAreaKen, "would love to see Biden bop him (Boehner) over the head." Ha! Congress doesn't need to get on board!

6:58 PM PT: "We owe it to the American people to show what we are for, not against." sucker punch.

7:13 PM PT: (TheLittleOne): SBS = Serious Baner is Serious

7:35 PM PT: Haunted by that smile forever now. Creepy. Work hard, help others and always always dream for more…. save money and go for college… and I did, smile. Rep Cathy, you are insulting.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
