"It's So Cold that I was walking through Central park and I saw a Squirrel knitting booties for his nutties"...
and" It's Soooo Cold that Sarah Palin shot herself a New Coat"...only Dave can make me laugh about The Cold......Speaking of Dave, here is Obama doing the Top 10 On January 24th, 2008, about Campaign Promises....I have good heat this winter thanks to a Wonderful New Heater....but I am still cold....There is plenty down below to see...The Plane Crash in the Hudson River, and music and news on many fronts, and even the Eric Holder video about WaterBoarding IS Torture...

Blog Round Up:::
Border Explorer reports on Chertoff's GoodBye Party...
Bad Tux my favorite Penguin has an interesting post up about War Crimes and more....
DK's Art Project and she did my photo, so cool, although it might scare small children....
Or you can go to the site and make your own. Do you need to Hear Some Obama....a really Powerful Video is linked to the Title.

Obama News::
DC Lawmakers are looking at Delaying the DTV Switchover.....as they state that the Lawmakers say U.S. NOT ready....
Repugs are already Grumbling about the HealthCare Plans because more Children would get Healthcare.....
Activists sue over having rights violated and computers seized...
Obama is coming to Ohio to visit a Wind Turbine Factory......
Late last night there was a snippet on the Ticker about Bank of America being Bailed out for Billions by the Treasury, and I am confused, because I thought they were solid and had BOUGHT Washington Mutual ? And the articles said it was to help with their troubled assets, but I suspect that is NOT Mortgages and Homes on the line?

Bet Williams a mom wrote this during the Election Season, and her kids are in it too..." We're with you"....

Zydeco for Obama "Oui on Peut" from Louisiana 2008....

Read the quote below that Martin Luther King wrote about Vietnam....but it is about War, and can easily apply to Iraq...
"Somehow this madness must cease. We must stop now. I speak as a child of God and brother to the suffering poor of Vietnam.I speak for those whose land is being laid waste, whose homes are being destroyed, whose culture is being subverted. I speakfor the poor in America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home and death and corruption in Vietnam. Ispeak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken. I speak as an American to theleaders of my own nation. The great initiative in this war is ours. The initiative to stop it must be ours."
Martin Luther King, Jr., The Trumpet of Conscience, 1967.

Too close to the lake...getting the cold off it. BRRR is all I can say. Wish you warmer hon...it isn't quite that bad here and it is supposed to get warmer tomorrow. Great choices for today.. Just get through the weekend and we have it made. Now if the shrub will just go quietly and not with pardon's. That is my only fear. With everyone making such a big deal right here at the last I am so afraid he will. That would be devasting to me. Even more than if nothing is done. Even if they aren't convicted of anything, if they are even investigated it would be something. But if pardons are issued they will do nothing from here on. I just want to say... shhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

hey there friend...I saw you end of the world is not feeling too warm either...ouch....I walked down to work...it was still negative 6....and at somepoint the sun came out and supposedly it went up to 8 ( wow...) and then now back down to Neg with negative 20 windchill....

About the Pardons so far Bush has pardoned over 190...and I too have been watching to see if he pardons ANY torture connected people...( most of his pardons are odd, alot of Drug Convictions and also alot of mail fraud...) I have not posted on that in a while, over a month- I need to do that...

Have a good weekend..I work all weekend- But I think I get off for the Inauguration ( I think the schedule was nowhere to be found...but I find out tomorrow...)

I think we should all keep blogging about Torture and War Crimes...we can not let Obama think we don't care...we do....and we also need to let Obama know on Change.gov site, and so far atleast 70,000 people have written in- we need to get more to write to Obama....so that is what I am going to blog on .....( okay nag...)

Have a great weekend...the Countdown goes on....

;-)

({{ I am getting very excited...}}}

Your Obamicon will not scare small children, LOL! I think it makes you look very mischievious, like Puck in Midsummer's Night Dream.

Last I heard about BofA was that they didn't even request TARP money & when it was given them, they used it to invest in shares of Bank of China?!?

OK, I will watch the Zydeco vid now.

Now matter how cold the weather is there, you will be feeling sunny on Tuesday.

Great closing line DK!

Good smattering of info here E, topped of with timeless MLK jr quote. His words ring hauntingly true.

So glad you have a functioning heater in that grueling cold. BRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Saw a clip of the heavy duty security for Tuesday. Jeez! how are people even going to get into the inner core if all the bridges are closed?
I'll be cheering it on from a group gathering party celebration on the West coast.

How refreshing to see a hearty welcome, rather than people booing & throwing eggs!

Obama has his work cut out for him, but he brings hope with him, and like a breath of fresh air, he is breathing new life back into this country,

What if Obama's speech after being sworn in is
" Ask not what your country can do for you, but Shut down Gitmo & take Bush & Cheney to jail to await his war crimes trial!"

Oh right ! All that pomp & circumstance.....

I tell you though, that would be my kind of speech.

Cut to the chase & start fixing problems ASAP.

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!

Fran::
yeah...
FIX things NOW...let's start with Gitmo...let's close it...but keep clean and ready for Dick and Dubya...
seriously....about DC...I don't think we are going I am just not up to that amount of standing out in the Cold..freezing ass cold for many many hours..( I did it last year with my banged up hip for over 8 hours...but that was ALOT.... and it was not quite this cold- and I did not have to also drive for many hours...with 4 million others...) BUT we can celebrate here- that is for sure...

Good for you ...party there...yeah...excellent..

DK:::

ahhhhh yeah...some tunes and some happy music ..
thanks for saying that about Puck...I think it's kind of spooky looking ....in a really good way....thanks for doing it....but yeah....I am pretty happy right now ...that is for sure...Giddy....
