‘Duck Dynasty’ flies in the
TV ratings on the wings of
Jimmy Kimmel-Morrissey dust-up

Washington Post, by Lisa de Moraes

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/1/2013 5:34:12 AM

A Jimmy Kimmel/Morrissey catfight over a show about duck-call manufacturers has handed A&E network its biggest audience ever. Nearly 9?million people watched Wednesday night’s third-season debut of “Duck Dynasty” — one night after “DD” family members appeared on Kimmel’s ABC late-night show, getting Morrissey’s knickers in a knot. “Duck Dynasty” is now the No.?1-rated nonfiction series on cable this year. The back-to-back episodes with which “Duck Dynasty” opened its third season more than doubled the franchise’s second-season launch.

I love this show. What´s not to love about a family who works hard, loves God and country and knows how to live off the land.

Uncle Si for president.

Duck Dynasty is not for left and right coast liberals or the psychotically politically correct. It is just a funny show. A nice break from the scolders, hand wringers and lying politicians.

The "dust-up" caused me to watch the program for the first time.
Not only is the program entertaining it is morally instructive in a positive manner.

Oh Morrissey´s just got his knickers in a twist because he hasn´t eaten real food in the last 20 years...come to think of it, that´s probably why he has no "sex drive" as well, since he describes himself as "asexual," which it´s comforting for homosexuals and heterosexuals alike...don´t have to worry about this depressive, self-important oaf hitting on ya.

Finally, if gay men don´t kill...how does that explain Alexander the Great, the Spartans and half of the Roman Emperors, or have "the gays" just evolved to be more enlightened, less violent men in the post-modern world?! Ha!

I´ve watched this show a lot. Not once has a word had to be beeped out. The children are very respectful of the adults. They work hard and all are college educated. I hate the hairy faces but I guess their wives are okay with it.

Shows like this should be all over tv. It teaches old fashioned behavior and respect that we need to see more of.

#4, you should sample the show more than once. I also didn´t care for it when I watched one show in the first season. I tried it again in the second season and now I am a devoted fan. Even Uncle Si, though not college-degreed, is retired military and proud of it. This is not the Honey Boo-Boo family and it is laugh-out-loud funny.

First time I had trouble getting passed all that hair/fur. Now I love it. Watch it in reruns too and see things I missed. Sometimes Hubby and I roar with laughter. No other show on tv gives us such an enormous good time. Like several other things in life..the reaction to Duck Dynasty shows me the people I will probably enjoy as a friend and those I might not. The most hilarious scene was the riding lawn mower race with Jeb, youngest brother showing up with a push mower. He was winning big time until he fell. Was a moment that I still visualize and get a chuckle.

With Christie at helm, RGA raises
$23.5 million in first quarter
Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2014 10:52:03 AM     Post Reply
The Republican Governors Association raised $23.5 million during the first three months of 2014, the organization will announce Thursday. It´s a record haul for the RGA, which is chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). The RGA has nearly $60 million in the bank, money it will need as it seeks to defend 22 seats compared to just 14 for Democrats. Most of the money the RGA raised came from the group´s 527 arm, which hauled in more than $22 million. The 501(c)(4) affiliate raised $1.3 million.

15-20 Percent Aren´t Paying
Obamacare Premiums, Insurer Says

One of the biggest players in Obamacare´s exchanges says 15 to 20 percent of its new customers aren´t paying their first premium—which means they´re not actually covered. The latest data come from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, whose members—known collectively as "Blues" plans—are participating in the exchanges in almost every state. Roughly 80 to 85 percent of people who selected a Blues plan through the exchanges went on to pay their first month´s premium, a BCBSA spokeswoman said Wednesday. The new statistics, particularly from such a large carrier, help define how many people are actually getting covered under the Affordable Care

New Paul Ryan Budget Cuts Trillions
in Spending, Faces Difficult Vote
Time Magazine, by Jay Newton-Small    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2014 7:30:59 AM     Post Reply
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan on Tuesday released his fiscal year 2015 budget, in which he cuts $5.1 trillion in spending, mostly from health care, to balance the budget by 2024. The budget would repeal ObamaCare, including the money-saving Independent Payment Advisory Board, cutting $1.2 trillion in federal outlays. It turns Medicaid into a block grant program for states, which would save $732 billion over 10 years. It essentially aims to privatize Medicare, offering enrollees

Providing another dramatic example of its readiness to protect freedom of speech, the Roberts Court yesterday struck down a campaign-finance regulation that limited the total amount that an individual may donate to political candidates, thereby nixing a rule that had been in effect for more than 40 years. The plaintiff in the case was one Shaun McCutcheon, a conservative businessman from Alabama who argued that limits on his aggregate spending represented a violation of his constitutional right to free expression. The court agreed, 5–4. If the Citizens United case serves as any indication, the word “McCutcheon” will soon be hurled liberally

Since 9/11 almost 1,000 veterans have died due to negligence in the Veterans healthcare system. After lengthy legal battles the VA is finally making payments to their families. An Iraq War veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder and a history of drug dependency is found dead on the floor of his room at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in West Los Angeles after doctors give him a 30-day supply of the anti-anxiety medication alprazolam and a 15-day supply of methadone.

Harry Reid Now Spreading Baseless Claim

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

Paul Ryan has laid down another marker. Pity he doesn’t have the power to lay down the law. Representative Ryan has a budget, and the Democrats do not have one, nor do they plan to produce one. The proverb holds that you can’t beat something with nothing, but that is precisely what congressional Democrats are going to do with this Republican budget, just as they have with earlier iterations of the same concept. Representative Ryan finds himself in much the same position as Senator Rand Paul: ready to lead, a bit short on followers. My recent pessimistic assessment of Senator Rand Paul’s

For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke.

George Soros’ South American ex-squeeze can sue him for alleged assault and battery stemming from a bedroom brawl in 2010, the Appellate Division ruled Tuesday, upholding part of a lower court´s decision. But the panel tossed Adriana Ferreyr’s attempt to go after the billionaire hedge fund manager for infliction of emotional distress, a part of her suit that had previously been upheld by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Debra James. In effect, the Appellate judges narrowed the focus of the case the Brazilian TV soap actress brought against Soros in 2010, when she sued him for breaking his promise to buy

   

 



 
Lesbian-Only Cemetery
Being Inaugurated in Berlin

A new burial area for lesbians only is being inaugurated this weekend in a two-century-old cemetery in the German capital. A 400-square-meter (4,300-square-foot) area of the Lutheran Georgen Parochial cemetery, established in 1814 in central Berlin, will be reserved as a graveyard for up to 80 lesbians, said Usah Zachau, a spokeswoman for the Safia association, a national group primarily for elderly lesbians. The association said it had created a burial area to be inaugurated Sunday, as a space "where life and death connect, distinctive forms of cemetery culture can develop and where the lesbian community can live together in the afterlife."

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- The investigation into what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is charging ahead on two fronts: new high-tech tools and good old-fashioned shoe leather. While they scanned the ocean surface for a 26th day Wednesday with planes and ships, the possibility that something sinister may have happened hasn´t been discounted. Malaysian police said Wednesday they have interviewed about 170 people, and will continue questioning families and those who had access to the plane. Officials have always said they were looking at four possibilities: hijacking, sabotage, personal problems and psychological issues. On Monday, a Malaysian government source told CNN that the

Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul told fellow Republicans on Tuesday that the future of their party depends on them connecting with Hispanics in a more empathetic way and on getting in front of immigration reform – a message that further signals his flirtation with a 2016 presidential run. “If we are to change people’s attitudes toward … the Republican Party, we have to show up and we have to have something to say,” Paul told a small group of conservatives gathered at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. “I hope to be part of that dialogue.” This certainly was not the

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue.

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
