    Golden Globes on this evening....I won't be tuning in. I do not believe in telling folks to boycott a particular TV presentation...and, I will not press folks not to watch this farce, this evening. I have made my choice, and, that is it!!!

    Amazon proved itself a major player in the television field when its original program “Transparent” won the Golden Globe for best TV series, musical or comedy and star Jeffrey Tambor won best actor. Not only was it Amazon’s first-ever Golden Globe award, “Transparent” also became the first online series to ever win a best series award, comedy or drama, at the annual awards show. “My new best friend,” Tambor said of the digital media company during his acceptance speech. The series stars Tambor as a father of three who reveals he identifies as a woman. There was a lot of...

    Something doesn't look quite right A Redditor with a good eye caught this still from NBC's Sunday night pregame show Football Night in America, where if you look closely, the Golden Gate Bridge has an extra tower. Also in this redesign of the bridge, the suspension cables just drift into space from the three towers (No need for those! They're just decoration!). We're not sure who is photo shopping like mad over at NBC, but one would hope that the person in charge would know the Golden Gate only has two towers. And if they didn't know, maybe they could...

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | August 8, 2013 | Ray Long and Hal Dardick
    SPRINGFIELD --- Dr. Eric Whitaker, the former head of the Illinois public health department and a close friend of President Barack Obama, acknowledged today that he’s spoken to federal authorities who have been probing kickback schemes involving state grants, but said that he was not involved in the alleged crimes. Whitaker issued a statement this afternoon following Wednesday’s indictment of Quinshaunta R. Golden, his former chief of staff at the Illinois Department of Public Health. Golden is charged with collecting $433,000 in a grant scam and then trying to cover it up. Golden also worked with Whitaker at University of...

    Link is to an audio class on understanding the sin of the golden calf. How the heck could people who heard G-d speak 40 days prior do such a sin?! The sin of the golden calf takes place within the weekly portion (as divided by Jews) of the Torah that is read this week. Enjoy!

  • The Great Golden State Business Exodus

    01/03/2012 5:26:34 PM PST · by Nachum · 40 replies
    States: California's in trouble. Businesses are leaving along with intellectual and investment capital and skilled workers. But rather than face up to serious problems, legislators pass silly laws. One would think that given the serious nature of the state's problems, the legislature would focus on solutions at the exclusion of all else. Instead, lawmakers — what would we ever do without them? — found the time in 2011 to trespass even deeper into Californians' personal lives. Topping off Sacramento's monument to foolishness is a law requiring children younger than 8, except for those taller than 4 feet 9 inches,

    What I want to do in this article is try to put some current events together in order for you to understand what is happening here in the Middle East that will effect the entire world. Whilst those who are up-to-date on current events will understand, others may find themselves at a little loss in basic understanding. I also want to make it very clear that this is what I believe whether it is Spirit led or my own deduction - you will have to be the judge of that. Keeping in mind that God has given me a very...

  • Democrats made gains in Calif., but can they fix the Golden State?

    SACRAMENTO - In the Year of the Republicans, California is the great exception. Whatever force hit the rest of the country in November stopped at the California border. Democrats won every statewide office on the ballot. They increased their already hefty majority in the State Assembly and maintain a sizable majority in the Senate. Their congressional delegation remains intact, as well. For Democrats, that is cause for celebration, given the battering they took almost everywhere else. But it is also cause for sober reflection. Are they up to the task of governing?

Golden, recently elected to an 11th term in the General Assembly, becomes the first Democrat to switch parties in the Senate. Five House members have left the Democratic caucus for the GOP. “I am changing my party affiliation in order to better represent the views of the majority of my constituents and my own conservative, pro-business philosophy,” Golden said in a statement. “Our state continues to face great challenges.

    NEW DELHI: US President Barack Obama will not visit Amritsar during his stay in India next month. While there was no official confirmation from the government, sources said the proposal to visit Amritsar had been dropped owing to reservations of US officials over the kind of scarf Obama would have to wear to visit the Golden Temple. The decision was yet to be communicated to the government till late on Tuesday. However, sources said Obama, who will arrive in Mumbai on November 6, will directly come to Delhi now after a day's stay in the country's commercial capital. Earlier, he...

    NEW DELHI — The Golden Temple, a sprawling and serene complex of gleaming gold and polished marble that is the spiritual center of the Sikh religion, is one of India’s most popular tourist attractions. Revered by Indians of all faiths, it is a cherished emblem of India’s religious diversity. So it was no surprise when the gold-plated marvel was touted as the likely third stop on President Obama’s visit to India, scheduled for early November. But the United States has ruled out a Golden Temple visit, according to an American official involved in planning. Temple officials said that American advance...

    E-mails and other records of Dr. Eric Whitaker -- one of President Obama's best friends -- have been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury... The investigation involves "faith-based initiatives" and health-awareness campaigns funded by the Illinois Department of Public Health when Whitaker ran the agency for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich... Obama has said he recommended Whitaker for that job, which Whitaker landed in April 2003. The president's friend resigned in October 2007 to join Obama's wife, Michelle, as an executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center. On Friday, Whitaker defended his work as the state's former top health official,...

    George Andrew Jackson made one of the most pivotal gold discoveries in Colorado history around today's Idaho Springs on January 7, 1859. He had made his way up from camp at today's Golden townsite, later became a Golden citizen, and suggested the town be named after Thomas L. Golden who was the only person he trusted with the secret of his discovery. Today is the 150th anniversary of one of the great gold strikes in Colorado history, when George A. Jackson, having traveled from his camp at today's Golden townsite, journeyed up to the vicinity of today's Idaho Springs...

    A Rabbi asked the City of Golden if he could put up a menorah near the Christmas tree and the reaction of the city is to consider banning all religous symbols. The City of Golden claims that they do not want to have any religous symbols such as the menorah on city property. City of Golen spokesman Jonathan Ashford said that "the goal here is to set guidelines. The city has had a history of having a display downtown that didn't include any kind of specific religious message or theme. We've tried to keep it neutral, very open, very inclusive."...

    Well...I played hookie this morning and went to the Sarah Palin Rally this morning at the Westernaires Arena in Golden, Colorado. It was originally to be a pancake breakfast meeting, but due to the overwhelming demand the campaign ran out of tickets in the span of eight hours so the pancakes were tossed out. I had called ahead and I had tickets available at the "will call" booth at the arena. I left the house in Thornton at 5 AM and parked at the Colorado Mills Mall parking lot at 5:30. I then walked about a mile to the Arena....

    Excerpt - The regulator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac said Sunday that it won't allow the companies to make "golden parachute" severance payments to the mortgage companies' ousted chief executive officers. In a statement, the Federal Housing Finance Agency said such payments wouldn't be made to Daniel Mudd and Richard Syron, despite provisions in their contracts. Mr. Mudd served as chief executive of Fannie and Mr. Syron was chairman and CEO of Freddie until last weekend, when the regulator seized control of the companies, saying they were in danger of running out of capital. ~ snip ~
