Hoppy Easter…from Bo… and the President and the Easter Bunny…and others…
Category Archives: first dog Obama family
well, it is almost Christmas…before you know it…
time to check the balls… I mean, deck the halls… with Bo Obama at the White House approving the Holiday decorations….he will soon welcome 90,000 visitors to the tune of the ”Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy?”
does your dog/pets like Christmas?
is your tree and decor up yet? have your pooches inspected the premises? will the furry ones meet Santa this year? are you in the holiday spirit yet, holiday partying and what gifts are in store if they are good (and even if they are naughty)?
This holiday season, nearly 63 percent of dog owners and 58 percent of cat owners will be buying Christmas gifts for their furry friends, according to the American Humane Association. Soon, we will share a holiday gift guide or two and holiday pet travel. are you going anywhere FUN for the holidays?
what are you looking forward to this year??? I want to see The Hobbit movie and Les Miserables, coming out soon… (Dec. 14 and Xmas day)…
this morning, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and tails are wagging!!!!! first dog Bo stays in the White House… Big Bird is happy… NO MORE ADS… Landslide. #Obama2012
Last night Ohio and many other states showed the country that our democracy is not for sale.
To the President…”When you were elected in 2008, you inspired the world with a call to take responsibility for the problems we face as global citizens. Since then, you have made earnest efforts to live up to that great hope and trust placed in you by the American public. I believe you have been re-elected now in recognition of that effort.” — the Dalai Lama.”
WOMEN, WE DID IT!!! 18 women were elected to the Senate. That has never been done before.
Democrats don’t have to cheat to win
If you share your politics with your pooches…
Send pictures of your pets wearing election-year flair to Pet Lovers for Obama…
and you can also send photos to Dogs Against Romney… if you are against animal abuse… both Romney and Ryan have shown that they disregard animals and/or abuse them… Ryan kills fish with his bare hands and hunts deer… Romney strapped his Irish Setter on the roof of his car for a 12 hour drive to Canada and laughs about it…
The fur is flying and will continue to do so during the Conventions this week. Hurricane Isaac has already ruined some of the GOP’s plans… Divine intervention… some say a big uterus is on its way to Tampa… after all of the horrific anti-choice, Akins/Ryan’s pro-rape, rapists have rights but women don’t rhetoric and bills and platform of the GOP, GOP: Don’t Mess with MOTHER God Nature…
Historically, pets have played a very important role in the lives of many presidents and lawmakers.
- FDR’s dog Fala helped him win re-election
- President Ford would often signal his dog Liberty
- President George Bush’s dog Millie and her puppies entertained many of the White House’s visiting guests
- President Clinton’s dog Buddy kept him company in the dog house during the Lewinsky scandal
- President George W. Bush’s dogs Barney and Miss Beazley hosted annual video tours of the White House’s Christmas decorations.
Harry S. Truman once said…
“If you want
a friend in Washington, get a dog.”
Do you want a Registered Pet Offender to become President of the USA ?
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Romney’s treatment of his dog Seamus is evidence of his callous disregard for others. He dismisses the dog and he dismisses people.
How about a Job Killer?
He says that he is going to fix the economy and create jobs? Let’s see…
“The last six months of the Bush administration, we lost three and half million jobs. We know this about Mitt Romney: He’s not a job creator. When he was governor of Massachusetts, they were 47th out of 50 in job creation. His experience is in downsizing, outsourcing jobs and bankrupting companies and walking away with a lot of money for himself.”
Making Abortions Illegal DOES NOT CREATE JOBS
Creating BIG government while touting small government. Is everything he says the OPPOSITE to what he DOES/MEAN???? Etch a Sketch… can you believe anything he says???
Bill Maher: ”Mitt knows the Secret… The success or failure of his campaign will depend upon his ability to convince someone making $26,000 a year, that he Mitt, a rich guy, knows how to make them rich, too. And if you elect him, he’ll tell you The Secret. It’s not a political platform. It’s a wealth seminar… But the Secret turns out to be that he is rich because he is robbing you… Obama was a community organizer helping poor people. What would you rather do, help poor people or have money in your mouth.”
GOP on How to Fix the Economy
Asked what they want to do with the country if they win the White House and keep/get more power in Congress, Republicans say they want to return to Bush/Cheney circa 2006.
And gee, remember what George Bush did? He Gave us the Great Recession.
“Just how stupid does Mitt Romney think we are? If you’ve been following his campaign from the beginning, that’s a question you have probably asked many times.
“…Mr. Romney constantly talks about job losses under Mr. Obama. Yet all of the net job loss took place in the first few months of 2009, that is, before any of the new administration’s policies had time to take effect. So the Ohio speech was a perfect illustration of the way the Romney campaign is banking on amnesia, on the hope that voters don’t remember that Mr. Obama inherited an economy that was already in free fall.
“…Mr. Romney is essentially advocating a return to those very same Bush policies. And he’s hoping that you don’t remember how badly those policies worked.
“…70 percent of public job losses have been either in Texas or in states where Republicans recently took control.
“…Basically, the G.O.P. has blocked the administration’s efforts to the maximum extent possible, then turned around and blamed the administration for not doing enough.
GOP War on the World
oh yes, let’s go back to the good ol days when Bush trashed the economy by stealing from the poor to pay the rich and let’s see who created the deficit…
Jeb Bush: “Sure, I’d Be Mitt’s VP. A Bush on the Ticket Would Show Voters #Romney Is Fully Aligned w/the Crappy Ideas that Led to Disaster”
Paul Ryan & Co are the ones declaring war on religion by expecting churches to cover the cost of everything he wants to cut.
GOP love spending other people’s money, their creed… spend/steal YOUR money, hide their own overseas.
“Within a decade, Bain Capital padlocked the mill and put 750 people out of work and forced taxpayers to pick up the bill for unemployment benefits and worse, for $44 million in pensions which had been earned, but Bain Capital refused to pay. Bain Capital made out well, though, with a profit of $12 million and $4.5 million in consulting fees. In 2001, the steel company declared bankruptcy.
…Romney and Bain Capital specializes in low-wage jobs. The jobs at his three “success stories” are causing many to be among the working poor, earning just $9.00 per hour, a pay rate that would qualify many for government assistance. Even worse, many people are hired as part-time employees with inconsistent schedules, leaving them unable to find additional work.
…Their true agenda is to make the rich richer and the working class poorer, even further burdening the taxpayers, while ensuring that the upper echelon of taxpayers won’t have to pick up the tab.”
Romney’s history working for Bain capital, Killing Jobs.
“I like firing people,” said Romney.
So the bottomline is that Mitt Romney and the GOP are counting on YOUR stupidity and amnesia in order to win the election. And they’re making it difficult, if not impossible, for Democratic voters, women voters, Latino and black voters to vote.
and Easter and Passover…
from the adorable Bo Obama…
from Andy Borowitz…
Religions in Summary: Jews hide bread, Christians hide eggs, and Mormons hide a dog on top of their car…
GOP hide their womb envy in hundreds of bills against birth control and abortion and health care for women and pretend they are not waging a war against women…
did you watch to kill a mockingbird on TV? if so, what did you think? relevant?
Atticus’ lesson to Scout that “you never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view — until you climb around in his skin and walk around in it”
“it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird”. mockingbirds never harm other living creatures. “They don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.”
how are you celebrating?
The Super-Doggies are a trio of animated singing dogs featured in a music video encouraging people to visit dog shelters with hopes of giving abandoned puppies a caring home. The Super-Doggies feature Barack Obama’s dog, Bo and Vladmir Putin’s dog, Buffy. In fact, in this video both world leaders join their dogs for a global dance party. Lending a hand in the creation of this video is none other than Eugeniy (Eugene) Kuritsyn, the 2012 Oscar award-winning animator of Rango.
Eugeniy has teamed up with Grammy Award winning producer Neal Pogue who works with musicians like Nicky Minaj, Lil Wayne, Outkast and Pink. The effort is also getting guidance from marketing veteran Bruce Kirkland who directed The Beatles Anthology project, the Beastie Boys, the Spice Girls, Radiohead, and Everclear.
Americans love dogs but do we love women? just throwing that out since it seems like some people who call themselves American are waging war on women. They also don’t seem to care that much about dogs, animals, the environment, other people either.
in life, we have choices to make every day… and sometimes they are easy and other times they are difficult…
and it is not always as simple as this…
Mitt Romney drove to Canada with the family Irish setter on the roof of the car. and even now dogs do not like Romney…
Here’s the follow up: Barbara Bush comforting the dog, post-Romney encounter…Barbara: Don’t worry honey, he’s not going on vacation with us.
and what about this menu? is there anything on it that working or unemployed or seniors or women or middle class or poor people want????
Romney does not care about the poor, wants to cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and wants women to go back to 1950…
Roe v. Wade
Favors a repeal
“I’d like to see Roe v. Wade overturned and allow the states and the elected representatives of the people, and the people themselves, have the ability to put in place pro-life legislation.”
5 June 2007, Republican Presidential Debate (Manchester, New Hampshire)
President Obama echoed his support for the Supreme Court’s pro-choice decision in Roe v. Wade.
“Government should not intrude on private family matters,” Obama said in a statement, adding that he also supports policies to prevent “unintended pregnancies.”
Romney was weak about Rush Limbaugh, “It’s not the language I would have used,” Romney said of Limbaugh’s comments while President Obama called Sandra Fluke personally.
Obama said at a news conference that he’d called Fluke after Limbaugh made his comments “because I thought about Malia and Sasha, and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on. I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way, and I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re good citizens.”
Obama on women’s health care
A 32-page regulatory proposal offers options for providing preventive care, and President Barack Obama‘s health care law requires health plans to cover prevention at no cost to the consumer.
President Obama: auto industry bailout
Romney would have allowed the industry to collapse and lose 1.3 million
Romney wants to tax the middle class and poor while President Obama wants to tax the 1%…
Romney’s pitch is that he’s Mr. Fix It — a corporate turnaround artist with an MBA. Looking for a candidate who’ll get the economy moving and put people back to work? Just so long as you overlook his only leadership experience in government and all the mass layoffs he orchestrated at his vulture-capital firm, Romney’s your guy.
What happens to that pitch if the economy improves, growth strengthens, and job creation picks up steam before the election? I don’t know. More importantly, I don’t think Romney knows, either.
Santorum’s pitch is altogether different. Whether the unemployment rate is 8.3% or 3.8%, Santorum is offering a message about culture, values, and religion. He doesn’t like contraception; he wants to restrict access to pornography; and a spirited defense of the separation of church and state makes him, in Santorum’s words, want to “vomit.”
As the former senator put it yesterday, “My campaign doesn’t hinge on unemployment rates and growth rates. It’s something more foundational that’s going on.”
Whether one finds Santorum’s agenda offensive or not, at least this is coherent and consistent. Unlike so many Republicans, he’s not rooting for bad economic news before the election, because the health of the economy is independent of his right-wing societal vision.
vast differences of Character, Vision and Values for our country… and if you are upset, paranoid and/or concerned about the NDAA and other bills restricting our civil liberties, the right wing GOP’ers meanwhile have invaded women’s privates and privacy in horrific ways, and want women who have abortions to be sent to jail for killing their unborn fetus “person.”
http://whatever.scalzi.com/2012/03/20/guest-post-a-doctor-on-transvaginal-ultrasounds/ a dr speaks out against unwanted, unnecessary t.v. ultrasounds, politics
What good is a law that adds only pain and difficulty to perhaps the most painful and difficult decision a woman can make? Shouldn’t women have a right to protect themselves from strangers’ opinions on their most personal matters? Shouldn’t we have the right not to know?
There are bills like these being considered and/or passed in states that have GOP governors and/or where the GOP has the majority.
GOP legislators have sought to exempt religious orgs from having to offer health insurance that covers contraceptives.
…In Arizona and Kansas, Republican state legislators pushed bills allowing a doctor to lie about the health status of your fetus for fear you might opt to get an abortion.
But the women behind Government Free VJJ have a different kind of approach:
“Follow these simple steps,” the website beckons…
1. Knit or crochet a lady part
2. Print a message to enclose
3. Mail it to your male Senator or Congressional Representative [links provided]
4. We’re in the process of arranging hand delivery to congressional offices in Washington, until then, go ahead and mail yours in!
5. Record your items in this spreadsheet so we can track which representatives still need to receive a “gift”!
6. Don’t forget to thank your representative if he respects women and supports our rights.
There are kntting and crochet patterns available to make a “snatchel.”
here is the crochet pattern…
”I am a woman and I have these human rights: The right to life. The right to privacy. The right to freedom. The right to bodily integrity. The right to decide when and how I reproduce.”
with all of the uproar because of the GOP’s Back to the Past 1950′s agenda, think it is only fitting to talk about having a woman in the White House… from Marlo Thomas about women and power… she asks… “America has never leapt over that final gender barrier by electing a woman to our highest office — and the interesting thing is, so many countries around the world have achieved that equality.
Why not us?”
I would LOVE to vote for a woman for President… Elisabeth Warren comes to mind… would love for there to BE a woman for President…
this is way overdue… ERA…
here is the First Lady and Bo … Bo has been showing up a lot more it seems, perhaps to highlight the difference between Romney’s abusive dog car ride and Bo’s having it made… Michelle Obama even said that she’d like to come back as Bo…because he has it so good…
this is crazy funny… First Ladies as Dogs… for a little comic interlude…
what’s the best pet for you and your family?
some things to consider when adopting a pet, go to your local shelter and find your new best friend… spay/neuter, and if you are able, think about getting a pit bull / mix… older pet, chi, or some of the other pets that get left behind such as the black beauties! also, most pit bulls do not make it out of the shelters alive in the US. California has an overpopulation of chi’s. Too many healthy pets end up on death row due to overbreeding, puppy mills, greedy breeders, etc.
Even Bo, the First Dog, wants us to help stop euthanizing sheltered and homeless pets… hundreds and hundreds of thousands of tax dollars goes to killing animals.
and don’t forget five of the very special former Vick dogs are available for adoption… read all about how to give one of these amazing dogs a home…
