I've always thought of Tammy Faye as an eccentric person yet admired her up beat spirt and refusal to give in. That's why I was shocked to see this picture of her now.
Apparently she's living in a hospice, weighs 60lbs, has stopped chemo, and in pain 100% of the time. So I thought it might be a good idea to take a second and offer up a prayer for her if you see fit.
I apologize for having to hit it and quit it, but I'm about to head off for a meeting. Thougt you might be intersted in knowing Bill-O was in third place for the the 25- 54 age group.
I use to see him on Hardball and was dissapointed when he stopped coming on. It would be an easy transition. He has a provactive radio show with a huge Black Audience. He came to my area this year to speak at an event for Martin Luther King's Bithday and my young girls were really inspired. I think this would be a win-win situation that would be a bright spot in a huge mess. If you could say, "Okay Kaplan move over, the next host will be ______". Your choice would be who?
Lately I've been reading the Afro mostly because my husband reads it. Today I noticed a little tid bit. I'm originally from PG and would never had guessed in a million years that PG could ever go Republican. You can imagine my surprise when I came across this one particular excerpt below the jump
Update: The consensus, based on the comments, seems to be the information is inaccurate. I'll email a request for a clarification
Two years ago I couldn't understand why you would allow a beautiful man like Howard Dean to go down in flames, a could man who was persecuted for the sin of being truthful. But I'm reminded of the story of Job.
In view of me sensing myself becoming burnout with 16 days left until the election I figured I'd take a one day vacation from all the politcal back and forth. With that, I thought it would be interesting to see if there are any LOST fans on this site. More on the flip for spoilers
We were told yesterday that there was going to be a bomb dropped on Rep. Jerry Weller (R-Ill.). I did a little googling today to follow up and am now more confused than ever. More on the flip side
Our national security has officially been handed over to a foreign entity. Bush has approved the Dubai deal while no one was peeking
Thank you all for your advice. I'm going to sit down with my husband when he gets in from work and discuss. This is a sticky situation for me so your advice is much appreciated!!!
My daughter was given the following project by her Social Studies teacher which seems to be a bit skewed to the right. She attends a private, religious school that receives a tax exemption. The last time a teacher gave a wingnut project I complained to the school administrators threatening to contact authorities regarding the school's tax exemption if they continued to insert politics into the curriculum. The school dealt with the issue and I had no further problems until now. Problem is I really like this teacher on a personal level so I really don't want to get her in trouble. At the same time know that I have to address the issue. What should I do? Here's the project-
Baltimore Sun let out this little tid bit on the Senate run in Maryland...
The new Potomac poll shows Cardin and Mfume in a Democratic primary dead heat (with 37 percent still undecided). It shows Mfume and Steele in a dead heat in a general election (with 23 percent undecided) and Cardin with an 11-point lead over Steele in a general run (with 25 percent undecided).

That their leaders are proposing to
- Freeze the cost of living increase for all Federal Employees- not just democrat federal employees but all Federal employees
- Implement a 5% cut in spending for all programs except the military- not just programs for democrats but programs for all Americans.
I learned this after watching McCain speaking at the Heritage foundation on Federal Spending Wednesday (see cspan for the tape). McCain even had the nerve to make excuses for Bush's sorry *ss Social Security Plan. You know what really annoys me- Public figures who attempt to put forth an independant persona when in reality they're as much of a wingnut Rush Limbaugh. Why not just keep it real. I can tolerate the truth much better.
hmmmm....sounds to me like Rush is basically saying:
Hey Dem's, you and I don't agree on anything and basically hate each other, but lets put that to the side for a moment. We Republicans can't go out and trash Miers but you can. Go for it.
What do you think? Or did I read between the wrong lines?
