  •  Had to vote for FDR... (23+ / 0-)

    CHEERS  FDR signed the Social Security Insurance act and I now receive SSI.

    CHEERS  I voted first before anyone else had done so (I think? - it was the only bar there when I clicked on it), but I've been so distracted by presidential dogs and looking at pix of NE Kossacks, I may be late now.  However, the Kossack pix had a marvelous picture of Loki and Rory's #1 Staff Person:  Debbie in ME.  [I don't know how to get it off of someone else's Flickr account, but clicking on it gave me the link.]  She has a dazzling smile, as do the other Kossacks in the pictures.  No one could ever hold a "Best Smile Contest" because it would be a tie between every one of the Kossack Kontestants.  Lookin' Good!

    JEERS  If there were headlines about the demonstration in DC, I missed it online (TV off all weekend as usual).  I first read about the march in DC here on DK yesterday..., and overnight on Norway's NRK web site that said there were '30,000 environmental activists outside the White House - Obama was golfing in Florida.'  Yeeeeaaah.  I'm underwhelmed with the amount of "news" covered by US "news" organizations.  Anything serious happens and it's a media blackout.  Sheesh!

    CHEERS to all of you and your furry and feathery family and friends.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor

        My bad for not saying so!

        Day-um, they do have great smiles, don't they?

        [Prolly forgot 'cuz I am subconsciously jealous I wasn't there, dammit.  I live over a thousand miles away.... Siiiiiiiigh.  I was thinking of Loki & Rory's hoomin mama because she's the one Mainer I've seen on two regular features on DK, and the only one whose pix I had not seen yet.  The Marti is new-ish to both C&J and PWB Peeps, and she kinda looks like her writing; I had forgotten she lives back east.]
