I saved one for you

This is a great lunch that comes together pretty quickly. And it’s a great excuse to drink red wine in the middle of the day.

Portabello Pizzas

  • 3-4 portabello mushrooms
  • 3-4 oz goat cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano, diced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • pepperoni

Wash mushrooms. Cut off stems and dice. Mix diced mushroom stems, oregano, olive oil and cheese in a small bowl. Spray a baking sheet then place mushrooms cap side down on them. Divide filling between caps. Top each with pepperoni. Bake at 350 until mushroom is tender, about 20 minutes.

A Word From Vice President Joseph Robinette “Joey B” Biden, Jr.


 

By Jueseppi B.

US Vice President Joe Biden

US Vice President Joe Biden

 

Twenty years ago, President Clinton signed the Brady Bill into law.

 

That law said that if you want to purchase a firearm from a federally licensed dealer in this country, you have to get a background check first. It was a historic piece of legislation — one that’s kept 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a firearm in the last 14 years.

 

But in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown — a year ago this month — we know we’ve got to keep working to build on that progress.

 

And so even after a minority of Senators blocked commonsense legislation to reduce gun violence this spring, we’re pushing forward.

 

President Obama laid out 23 executive actions to make sure the Administration took essential and rapid steps to save lives while respecting our Second Amendment rights. And since January, we’ve completed or made significant progress on all of them.

 

 

President Obama is keeping his word to make sure our families and communities are safe. See the progress we’ve made.

 

 

Those 23 executive actions are keeping guns out of dangerous hands. They’re providing support for communities to hire school resource officers. And they’re reducing the stigma around mental illness.

 

Now, it’s not enough to take these steps on our own — we still need Congress to pass comprehensive legislation to reduce gun violence. We need expanded background checks, and we need to create serious penalties for gun trafficking. There is no question that these kinds of measures would protect our kids and keep our communities safer.

 

No parent should ever face the horror of the scene at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Or a movie theater in Aurora. Or a temple in Oak Creek. Or the campus at Virginia Tech.

 

We’ve seen too much gun violence as a country. And if there’s even one thing we can do to save a life, it is our most sacred duty to try.

 

That’s where I stand. And you have my word that the President and I are doing everything we can to make sure no parent loses their child to gun violence.

 

Take a look at the progress we’ve made:

Thank you,

Joe

 

This should be the only gun Americans are allowed to purchase and own.

This should be the only gun Americans are allowed to purchase and own.

Imagine a world that is gun free.

Imagine a world that is gun free.

“Westboro Baptist Chuch” … Topeka Kansas .. spreading hate!!


Originally posted on It Is What It Is:

The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is an American unaffiliated Baptist church known for its extreme ideologies, especially those against gay people

The church is widely described as a hate group and is monitored as such by the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center.

It is headed by Fred Phelps and consists primarily of members of his large family; in 2011, the church stated that it had about 40 members. The church is headquartered in a residential neighborhood on the west side of Topeka about three miles (5 km) west of the Kansas State Capitol. Its first public service was held on the afternoon of November 27, 1955.

The church has been involved in actions against gay people since at least 1991, when it sought a crackdown on homosexual activity at Gage Park six blocks northwest of the church. In addition to conducting anti-gay protests at military funerals, the…

Bridging the Gap Between the Classes

Today, I’m keeping it short. I’m also not going to throw facts at you. I just want to speak very frankly on the topic of poverty and the division between the poor in the United States and the men and women who make up the upper-classes.

I’ve spent the last several weeks coming across various stories that imbue one of America’s most-nagging and destructive problems: poverty and the division of social classes. News reports, public interest pieces, essays, etc.; All of them reek of the knowledge that there really is a 1%, American businesses get away with excessive tax breaks and sketchy business practices, those in America who have money want to keep it all for themselves, those without are begging for a small push, and at the end of the day, you are left with a vortex of words and images, all swirling in and out of each other…
