I slumbered in deep wells near the sea, lulled by the steady crash of waves;

Surrounded by darkness and silence;

Sometimes the tides pulled me to life, towards surface;

Sunlight sparkling off shale and polished sand;

The moon overhead covered me in silver, the nights chill deepened my slumbering heart;

The glitter of stars against a night sky sent me back into my well;

I wrapped my mantle across my shoulders and against the chill;

My victorious, imprinted on skin the monsters chained outside;

My warrior princess fierce in her guardianship of my heart.

Then you reached down and whispered, remember Cara;

Love awaits, roll away the stones piled high and remember;

I said no, sputtered, then silent then yes.

How did you do that to my shattered self with just remember.

Then you said laugh, I adore you and I believed never questioning.

You asked, will you know and…

‘Anything other than social media?’ State Dept’s MH17 evidence secret

 

Published on Jul 22, 2014

State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf described Russia’s statements on MH17 plane crash as “misinformation” – but when reporters asked her whether Washington would be releasing their intelligence and satellite data, Harf only replied “may be.” So far the US has been backing its statements by social media and “common sense.”

Earnest: White House is ‘Confident’ in Legal Basis for Health Care Law

 

Published on Jul 22, 2014

The White House doubled-down on its support for the 2010 health care law Tuesday, following a federal appeals court ruling that some say could derail the law’s success.

 

“You don’t need a fancy legal degree to understand that Congress intended for every eligible American to have access to tax credits that would lower their health care costs, regardless of whether it was state officials or federal officials who were running the marketplace,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said. “This will work its way through the legal process and we are confident in the legal case that the Department of Justice will be making.”

BREAKING: Two Republican Judges Order Obamacare Defunded


Originally posted on The Fifth Column:

Did the Tea Party finally find two lower court judges to sign these orders?  Do they know that millions of people could lose Obamacare.  Do they even care?  The good news about this is that the appeals court is unlikely to uphold their decision…

Think Progress

Near the end of 2013, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) led a final crusade to defund the Affordable Care Act, eventually announcing on the Senate floor that “I intend to speak in opposition to Obamacare, I intend to speak in support of defunding Obamacare, until I am no longer able to stand.” Cruz did succeed in goading his fellow Republicans into shutting down the federal government, but his effort was ultimately doomed. The American people’s elected representatives voted not to defund Obamacare, and the shutdown ended.

Right now, the prospects for the US Senate have gone from turning Republican to 50/50 to Democrats holding.

Regardless of what happens – We need to ‘Ditch Mitch’.

THAT would be the best victory – no matter what else happens in 2014.

‘A local Republican Party leader in Kentucky has resigned her position in act of protest against Sen. Mitch McConnell’.

‘According to WFPL’:

“After serving on the Daviess County Republican Party’s leadership team for almost three years, Owensboro native Barbara Knott had enough”.

“I have resigned from the executive committee of the Republican Party because I will not support Mitch McConnell,” Knott, chair of the Owensboro Tea Party, said in a telephone interview”.

I have a big 4×8 sign in my front yard that says ‘Retire Mitch.’ It’s going to stay there through the election. I will not vote for that man.”
