Took Coco our dog to the vet. Blood tests, x-rays, and a general checking of her from front to back. Possible diabetes (very small possibility at this time) or Cushing disease (bit bigger possibility than diabetes, but not large enough to get excited now). She checked out okay on everything! So vet put her on antibiotics for a week to see if it helps her get more active. Just have to make sure she has plenty of water and food and to make sure she does drink and eat. And make sure to take her out whether she wants to or not. Plus she got her nails trimmed out. Yes, it did cost! But way cheaper than if it was me or my wife going to the doctor for the same procedures!
She is back home and the same as before I took her. Just laying in her bed, only getting out to get a bit of water and food. Do hope she gets better.
If not, then we are talking some high cost procedures! Geesh, blood work done by specialists in dogs. Cat scan? Other stuff.
Barack Obama has been quoted saying that Republicans threaten the “very core of what this country stands for.”
How the heck would he know? Oh, he might know about Republicans, all right — but does he know even the slightest thing about the core of this country?
Even needing to ask the question provides the answer. It matters not where he was born; this man is deeply and fiercely alien to the American tradition.

A mixed martial arts fighter from Minnesota has been knocked out from his job as an assistant wrestling coach following comments he made about President Obama last month, he told FoxNews.com.
Jacob Volkmann, 31, of White Bear Lake, Minn., said he was placed on paid administrative leave on Friday by the White Bear Lake School District after he invited Obama to make an appointment with him for a “glass-ectomy” on Dec. 30.
“A glass-ectomy is when you cut your belly button out and put a piece of glass in there so when you have your head up your butt you can see where you’re going,” Volkmann told a reporter following his victory over Efrain Escudero at UFC 141.
Volkmann said at least one parent contacted school officials and complained about his latest comments regarding the commander in chief. In 2011, Volkmann was visited by the Secret Service after he said Obama was “not too bright” and that “someone’s got to knock some sense into that idiot.” No charges were filed.
“I went to practice on Friday and they wanted to meet before practice,” he told FoxNews.com. “They said, as of now, you cannot be around the kids.”
Volkmann, who has not been contacted by the Secret Service for his latest anti-Obama tirade, said the comments were intended as a “joke” but stood by the remarks.
“The thing is, the joke was made to make people look at why I said it,” he continued. “I only have a few seconds on air, so I need to make them count. [But] I feel that way. It was just a joke.”
Volkmann said he’ll consider contacting an attorney if his mandated leave lasts longer than two weeks. He has worked as an assistant wrestling coach at the 8,100-student school district for four years, he said.

Bill O’Reilly and Bernie Goldberg tonight both agreed that the racism charges against Gateway Pundit by the LA Times were completely bogus.
The move is also considered as a big concession by Washington to persuade the Taliban to the negotiating table.
The three senior Taliban leaders are reportedly on their way to Qatar despite strong opposition from Afghanistan.
According to media reports, the released prisoners include Mullah Khair Khowa, a former interior minister, Noorullah Noori, a former governor in northern Afghanistan and maybe Mullah Fazl Akhund, a Taliban Army Chief of Staff.
Kabul says the prisoners must be sent directly to Afghanistan, stressing that their transfer to Qatar is a breach of Afghanistan’s sovereignty, Afghan laws or the Afghan constitution.
The Taliban, which is planning to open a political office in Qatar for peace talks with Washington, has recently been pressing hard for the release of its top commanders from US custody ahead of possible negotiations.
Analysts, however, believe that US President Barack Obama’s decision to release the top Taliban commanders will do tremendous harm to American national security and to his prospects for reelection.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai, under US pressure, agreed to let the militant group establish an office outside Afghanistan. The Afghan president strongly rejected the idea previously, saying that he was not consulted with over the potential venue of a Taliban office.
In December, the Afghan government recalled its Ambassador to Qatar Khalid Ahmad Zakaria to protest at Doha “secretly negotiating” with the US and Germany over the opening of a Taliban office in Qatar.
Washington’s decision to hold negotiations with the Taliban comes after a decade the US-led war on Afghanistan under the pretext of toppling the Taliban regime.
The 2001 US-led invasion of Afghanistan has claimed numerous civilian lives and destroyed the country’s infrastructure.
On Jan. 10, 1776, a little more than a year after emigrating from England, Thomas Paine anonymously published his famous radical pamphlet Common Sense. In it he urged the American Colonies to declare independence and immediately severe all ties with the British monarchy. Published just as colonists learned of George III’s speech proclaiming the American Colonies in rebellion against the Crown, Common Sense became an instant best seller with several thousand copies sold within days.
Pamphlet by Thomas Paine.
Common Sense; Addressed to the Inhabitants of America, on the following interesting subjects. I. Of the Origin and Design of Government in General, with concise Remarks on the English Constitution. II. Of Monarchy and Hereditary Succession. III. Thoughts of the present State of American Affairs. IV. Of the Present Ability of American, with some miscellaneous Reflections.
Printed in 1776 in Philadelphia and sold by W. and T. Bradford.
Pamphlets and broadsides played a critical role in disseminating information in the eighteenth century. They provided the equivalent of the nightly news on TV. They reached a wide audience. In 1776, English Quaker Thomas Paine wrote his Common Sense, followed by The Crisis. Both of these pamphlets were influential in supporting the quest for independence.

Geesh,,,,Princess Pelosi really has it in for the Tea Party. Yet she gushes on, like her buddies obama, etal., about the occupy assholes! Sends out this email to her democrat base:

Subject: Commit to 2012
Date: January 10, 2012 12:06:02 PM EST
The 2012 elections are upon us.
Two years ago this month, the disastrous Supreme Court ruling, Citizens United, opened the floodgates to unlimited corporate money in politics. And for the last two years, we, as a nation, have been paying the price.
We’ve seen firsthand the brand of Tea Party extremism that money can buy. It’s one that neglects our middle class and our most vulnerable — from our children, to our seniors, to our working families fighting to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.
These same Republican extremists take no shame in protecting the billionaires and Big Oil companies that spend millions to attack Democrats.
We have set a goal of recruiting 1,000 new Democrats dedicated to 2012 before tonight’s New Hampshire Primary results are announced. Your support will help show our candidates, our opponents, and the media that grassroots Democrats are ready to hold Tea Party Republicans accountable every step of the way through the 2012 election.
Democrats are fighting every day to hold Republicans accountable for their reckless policies, but we cannot do it without your support.
While Republicans rely on their secret billionaire backers, we rely on you. Individual donors like you contribute more than 75% of DCCC funds — and 90 cents on every dollar goes directly to help Democrats win in 2012.
Together, we can overcome the special interest money fueling the Republicans’ campaigns, affirm our core Democratic values and win a Democratic House Majority in 2012.
In his first campaign speech of the election year, President Obama defended big government and condemned Republicans’ “brand of you’re-on-your-own economics.”
“We can’t go back to this brand of you’re-on-your-own economics,” he said to a crowd of roughly 700 at the Capital Hilton. Tickets to the fundraising event cost $100.
“We are not a country that was built on the idea of survival of the fittest,” Obama said, invoking populist undertones. “We were built on the idea that we survive as a nation. We thrive when we work together, all of us.”
(does this idiot of a president ever read AMERICAN HISTORY? The real history, not that liberal version.)
The woman was also a registered lobbyist, you know, the kind Obama pledged not to allow to work in his administration.
(The Hill) — President Obama has picked a strong advocate of immigration reform to head the Domestic Policy Council.
The White House announced Tuesday that Cecilia Munoz, a former senior vice president of the National Council of La Raza, to replace Melody Barnes at the top of the council. White House press secretary Jay Carney announced the appointment during his press breifing.
Munoz is now serving as the White House’s director of intergovernmental affairs and is in charge of outreach to state and local governments.
“The president has asked, she has accepted,” Carney said.
Munoz is an immigration expert who worked for the Naitonal Council of La Raza, the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the U.S., until 2009 when she joined the administration. The group works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans and advocates legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
