Jerry Brown -- for president
Los Angeles Times, by Paul Whitefield

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/14/2013 8:43:04 PM

Is it too soon to talk about the 2016 presidential election? Because I have the perfect candidate for the Democrats. Jerry Brown. That’s right. Our governor. Forget that Gov. Moonbeam nonsense. He’s now the Sage of Sacramento. OK, “perfect candidate” may be a bit strong. Brown does have one major, well, flaw (more on that later). But heck, no one’s perfect, especially these days. Republicans are already crowing about the great job that Governors Chris Christie of New Jersey and Scott Walker of Wisconsin have done in their states, and touting them as presidential material.

Comments:
How nutty will Dems get by 2016?

Has Moonbeam ever paid all the bills he ran up last time he ran for President? He put a bunch of small companies out of business.

Cue laugh track. But compared to what we have now? The bar has been lowered all the way to Hell. Where Americans now reside.

Great Bob Kerrey can retell his famous lesbian joke. The moron who almost single handedly wiped out agriculture in California to follow up Obama. It´s perfect. There´s a reason he´s never gotten his housekeeper pregnant.

#5 it´s an old bad joke about Jerry Brown entering a bar and trying to hit on two women who were lesbians. Kerrey told it to Clinton and was overheard pretty much ending his presidential run.

I Guarantee that Brown would carry CA, IL, MA, MD, CT, VT, NH, DC, MI, PA, NJ, NY, MA, OR, WA, WI, MN and HI. In-fact, I´m pretty sure that Stalin, PolPot, Mao, Chavez, Mussolini, Castro etc could carry those states without ever campaigning.

All the democrats have to do is pick a candidate that pick off Ohio and Florida.

I thought Brown was already showing some signs of dementia... Sure, even an anencephalic Democrat could take MA, HI, IL, MI, PA, NY, NJ, ME, WI, CA, OR, WA, DC, and several other states as well, at least as long as intellectual and moral torpor and sludge rule the day. Proved it in November. Either repeal the 22nd Amendment and make Obama president for life, or run Brown. Here would be a nice ticket for 2016, in case the attack on the 22nd Amendment fails: Brown-Stabenow.

California is circling the porcelain fixture. Unemployment is much higher than the national average. Brown´s tax hike will not bring near the revenue he thinks it will, and businesses are abandoning ship as fast as the lifeboats can be lowered.

One great thing Brown accomplished, though - nobody can legally try to talk you out of being gay!

I worked for Meg Whitman, but Brown has not been nearly as bad as I expected. If he can pull off getting CA back in the black by next year like his budget has "forecasted" (*cough*)...we´ll see.

I was never an Arnold voter - once an asshat, always an asshat, just like Lance Armstrong. I´m actually not glad to be proven right on that one.

I thought this was a gag story at first and kept waiting for the punchline and it turns out this nut is serious.

The real sub story here is tax increases magically fix fiscal problems no matter how bad.To this writer,Brown getting elected and passing a huge tax increase would be the elixir this country needs.

Brown´s an honest liberal (oxymoron) but he would have some predictability unlike Lucifer in the WH right now.

The guy that really scares me is the Mayor of LA,who could easily be a reduex of Obama.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama
‘is a different (matzo) ball game’
New York Daily News, by Leslie Larson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/17/2014 7:32:07 PM     Post Reply
Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

abandon divisive abortion bill

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business. According to the company´s President, Michael Day, the nearly $20,000 late fee is being assessed on taxes that were never due in the first place. Day and his accountant have been appealing the penalty for nearly a year which is due on April 15.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will.

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper. The poster featured a large picture of Kim´s distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo with the slogan: "Bad hair day? 15 percent off

Washington - It´s Friday night in Eckington, a quiet residential corner of Washington, and the back alley is crawling with feral cats -- rich pickings for seasoned cat-trapper Marty King. "Here, kitty kitty kitty kitty," said King after setting four metal traps baited with flaked shrimp and fish cat food and lined with fresh newspapers.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
