We have been stating the obvious for some time now, but now there is GOP confirmation about the dubious strategy of Republicans in congress. Their agenda and the business of serving the American people are miles apart.

I just had to share this most beautiful family moment. Here's a shout out to all the Dad's out there who are handling their business!
Family Reunion - performed by The O'Jays - written by Gamble/Huff
You know the family is the solution to the world's problems today
Now let's take a look at the family
In the family the father is like the head, the leader, the director
Not domineering, but showing love, guidance
For everyone else in the family
Now if we could get all the fathers of the world
To stand up and be fathers
That would be great
Then we have mothers
Who are the right arm of the father
There's supposed to-to-to do the cooking
Raise the children, do the sewing
And help the father to guide and direct
Then there's the son
The son, most sons are like imitators of their father
So we're back again to the father
And he is guiding in the right way
The son is definitely gonna be alright
Then we have the daughter
Watching her mother
Be-because sooner or later she's gonna be a mother
And she'll have her own sons and daughters
It don't, it don't just stop there with the family or
Of-of yours or mine
It's a universal family
Under one divine purpose
And one divine father
That is if we all come together no matter what color, race, creed
Because that's all in the head whether you wanna believe it or not
'Cause you'll bleed
Family, family reunion
It'll be nice, so nice, so nice
French-born photographer Philippe Sibelly has spent six years documenting a side of the African continent often ignored by mainstream media.
Sibelly has spent six years travelling through as many of Africa’s 54 countries as he can (up from 53 with the recent addition of South Sudan), trying to capture the middle class of every nation on the continent on film.
The project is a constant evolution as he continues to travel to Africa from his base in London as time and finances allow.
The resulting exhibition has been shown in the UK, and made its African debut in Accra, Ghana, in 2011. Now Sibelly hopes to bring the tour to other African countries.
The philosophy of the project also aims to restore dignity to both the concept of African imagery, and the people who appear in those images, who are given the recognition they deserve for their participation. read more

Miss Lately Semi-Retired Ann Coulter has emerged from the cave she dwells to push aside Ms. Michele Bachmann and Ms. Sarah P. to reclaim territory she conceded over the last 18 months or so.
Sarah decided she is better off just being a celebrity.
Michele, well let's just say the wheels are falling off that bus.
So, in reprising her role as the verbal Molotov Tosser from the extreme right, Miss Coulter has made a huge pronouncement on the Sean Hannity Show:
"Our blacks are so much better than their blacks. To become a black Republican, you don't just roll into it. You're not going with the flow..."
Yes, my brothers and sisters, she got the best and top of the line Negroes - we just gotta make do with ya left over blacks.
In her own words:
Shame on us - how did we let the Political Dream team of Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Michael Steele and Allen What's His Name get away - our bad.
BTW, the picture - compliments of listentoleon (check out his hilarous post) - is of Cain and Bachmann chowing down on fried chicken. Now, not to be piling on - and I do love me some fried chicken wings - but doesn't it seem like, Cain never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity to show us he is not a walking cliche.
Rush Limbaugh also lashed out at the news media for pursuing "the ugliest racial stereotypes they can to attack a black conservative." He went on to say on his radio show: "This is about blacks and Hispanics getting uppity."
Coulter, Bozell and Limbaugh all evoke what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said about Anita Hill's allegations of sexual harassment.
"From my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves," Thomas said at his 1991 Senate confirmation hearings. source
Lastly, to the knee-jerk reacting right wingers who want to blame the so-called liberal press (as Sarah P. says the lame street media), if the noose is getting mighty tight on ole Herm's neck you may want investigate whether or not he is a victim of friendly fire - just check out what Republican Mike Huckabee states of FOX news:
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee said he could "almost guarantee" that therecent story about sexual harassment allegations against Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain came from information leaked by another GOP campaign. source
They side show continues...
Post Script: Isn't it hypocritical how the right wing nuts have no hesitation of playing the race card when any black conservative comes under even a little bit of heat.
