Serendipityy SOUL- Tuesday Open Thread

Hey Man!  Have a great day.

From the Wiki:  Lizz Wright (born January 22, 1980) is an American jazz singer and composer.

Wright was born in the small town of Hahira, Georgia, one of three children and the daughter of a minister. She started singing gospel music and playing piano in church as a child, and also became interested in jazz and blues. She attended Houston County High School, where she was heavily involved in choral singing, receiving the National Choral Award. She went on to Georgia State University in Atlanta to study singing. Since then she has studied at The New School in New York,[citation needed] and in Vancouver. She currently resides outside Hendersonville, NC.

Wright joined the Atlanta-based vocal quartet In the Spirit in 2000, which soon achieved critical acclaim, and in 2002 she signed a recording contact with Verve Records, where her soul-meets-jazz-pop stylings immediately earned favorable comparisons to Anita Baker, Regina Belle, Cassandra Wilson, and Tracy Chapman.

Her first album, Salt was released in the Spring of 2003 (and reached number two on the Billboard Top Contemporary Jazz chart in 2004), followed by Dreaming Wide Awake in June 2005 (which reached number one on the Top Contemporary Jazz chart in 2005 and 2006).

  1. The Tea Party’s Dislike For Obama Has Nothing To Do With Race…Except For When It Does

    How is it possible to simultaneously believe that President Obama is a Mooooslim and also a radical black separatist who is a follower of liberation theology taught in the Christian church of Reverend Jeremiah Wright?

    Um…maybe because he’s black?

    Look at the MSM run their GALL-LOOP polls plugging the RETHUGS. First thing out of the starting block this morning on cable..

    The Republican Party has no viable candidate who can defeat PBO.

    NONE! So the GOP will use the $$$ to prop up their poll numbers and continue pushing the Muslim, race-baiting memes.

    Harry Reid ad bashes Sharron Angle on unemployment
    Associated Press
    Published Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2010 | 10:12 a.m.
    Updated 3 hours, 9 minutes ago

    Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid unveiled another TV ad on Tuesday using the words of Republican rival Sharron Angle against her.

    The ad released in Nevada features an unemployed Las Vegas woman denouncing Angle’s comment that entitlement programs like unemployment benefits have “spoiled” citizens and made them dependent on government.

    “I’m not spoiled, and I don’t want to be dependent on anybody,” the woman, identified as Debra Harding, says in the ad. “If Sharron Angle doesn’t get that, she should be out of work, not people like me.”

    The ad is the latest from Reid calling Angle too extreme on economic and social policies.

    Now if Harry gets re-elected what is he going to do for America.. Keep growing a pair, Harry.

    Exclusive: Meghan McCain Writes that Palin Brought ‘Drama, Stress … Panic’ to Campaign
    Sen. John McCain’s Daughter: Sarah Palin’s Rise Was ‘Too Fast,’ ‘Too Easy’

    For the first time since the end of her father’s 2008 presidential bid, Meghan McCain, Sen. John McCain’s daughter, spoke out about Sarah Palin, writing in a new book that Palin brought “drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty” to the losing campaign.

    Although McCain wrote that during the campaign she wondered whether the loss “was Sarah Palin’s fault,” McCain told “Good Morning America” in an exclusive interview today that Palin was not the reason the campaign failed.

    “I do clearly state at the end that we did not lose because of her, and I’m speaking out now because I do have conflicting feelings about her,” McCain told “GMA’s” George Stephanopoulos. “She brought so much momentum and enthusiasm to the campaign.”

    Alaska Sen. Murkowski picks up 374 votes in early counting
    Updated at 5:38 p.m.

    By Aaron Blake

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) gained 374 votes in the ongoing ballot-counting process in Alaska early Tuesday, but she may not be making up enough ground to win the Republican primary.

    With more than 6,000 new votes counted, Murkowski has cut her deficit significantly, but she still trails attorney Joe Miller by 1,294 votes. With about 20,000 ballots left to count, the incumbent still has a long way to go before overtaking Miller.

    After primary day last Tuesday, Miller led Murkowski by 1,668 votes, with about 25,000 uncounted ballots, including about 15,000 all-important absentee ballots. Alaska elections officials were set to count about 15,000 ballots Tuesday, including about 11,000 absentees.

    The first batch of 2,400 votes reported Tuesday came from relatively friendly Murkowski territory in Anchorage. She won about 57 percent of them and gained 343 votes.

    The next batch of about 2,900 votes came from the Matanuska-Susitna (Mat-Su) Valley, which went strongly for Miller on primary day and netted him 135 votes. The Mat-Su Valley is where Wasilla is located, and former Gov. Sarah Palin, who is also former mayor of Wasilla, backed Miller in the primary.

    The third batch from South Anchorage handed 166 votes back to Murkowski — about 60 percent of the 810 counted.

    Murkowski has exceeded her primary day performance in both Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley, taking higher percentages in Tuesday’s vote-counting in both areas. But it’s not yet clear that she can make up enough votes in the remaining 20,000 ballots.

    Alaska elections officials are expected to be counting ballots all day.

  8. Oval Office Gets A Makeover (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

    WASHINGTON – When President Barack Obama addresses the nation on Iraq Tuesday night, his Oval Office setting will be sporting a new look — and one that pays homage to a pair of Republican predecessors.

    While the president and his family were away on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, workers installed new wallpaper, a new rug, new chairs, lamps and a coffee table. Officials gave photographers a look hours before the speech was to be delivered at 8 p.m. EST.

    Sen. Orrin Hatch: ‘I’d Be The First To Stand Up For Their Rights’ To Build A Mosque Near Ground Zero
    While virtually every Republican and conservative leader has come out strongly against the construction of the proposed Park 51 Islamic community center near Ground Zero in New York City, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) strongly defended the organizers’ right to build the center today, saying, “what made this country great is we have religious freedom.” In an interview with Fox 13 News in Salt Lake City, Hatch — who has long been a proponent of religious liberty — said it shouldn’t “make a difference” that the majority of Americans don’t support the center’s construction, because religious freedom is too important, and noted that the proposed site is actually “a few blocks away” from Ground Zero.

    And countering those on the right who have implicated Islam in terrorism, or who have tried to paint it as anything less than a legitimate religion, Hatch said that “there are Muslims killed on 9/11 too,” and said, “we know [Islam is] a great religion”:

    Seven States Sue To Overturn Health Care Law, But Line Up For Subsidies

    WASHINGTON — More than half a dozen states suing to overturn President Barack Obama’s health care law are also claiming its subsidies for covering retired state government employees, according to a list released Tuesday by the administration.

    About 2,000 employers have been approved for the extra help to cover early retirees, mainly private businesses. But the list also includes seven states suing to overturn the health care overhaul as an unconstitutional power grab by the federal government.

    The seven are Arizona, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska and Nevada.

    They are part of a group of 20 states that have challenged the law’s requirement for most Americans to carry health insurance or face fines from the IRS. They argue that government cannot order individuals to buy a particular product. The administration counters that the mandate falls within broad powers conferred on Congress to regulate interstate commerce.

    A spokeswoman said Indiana’s Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels disapproves of Obama’s overhaul, but will take advantage of specific provisions that benefit his state.

    “Congress approved health care reform and the president signed it into law. Gov. Daniels does not agree with it, but Indiana will seek funds that help Hoosiers when there are no complicated strings or costs attached,” said press secretary Jane Jankowski.

      Typical, I got mine, but ya’ll can’t have yours. The hypocrisy is malignant amongst thes pols. They want to feed their ignorant constituency a load of shit about government spending and handouts, yet fail to explain that they are part of the government as an elected ofifical must govern their regions using said government $$$. I loathe the ignorant and the greedy.

  14. Beckapalooza: Where the black people at? lol

    One Thing Beck Can’t Claim: Black Supporters (Video)

    Campus Progress took a look at Glenn Beck’s big rally over the weekend, laughingly calling it “Beckapalooza.” While Beck maintained that his intentions weren’t political, supporters seemed to feel differently. And perhaps nowhere was that more apparent than in who decided not to show up:

    For an event aimed at reclaiming the civil rights movement, the crowd was pretty homogenous. There may have been a lot of red, white, and blue—but there wasn’t a ton of black in attendance.

    Why the FCC can’t do its job on broadband access

    Tuesday, August 31, 2010

    The Aug. 26 editorial “An open, innovative Internet” wrongly stated that a court decided the Federal Communications Commission has no authority over Internet service providers. What the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals said was that the section (Title I) of the communications statute cited by agency lawyers did not support the FCC ruling against Comcast’s blocking of BitTorrent. This was a predictable outcome of FCC actions during the Bush administration that consciously moved broadband Internet access from Title II, which would have supported the commission’s authority, to a murky place that invited court challenge.

    This was a major flip-flop from the historic — and successful — approach of forbidding discrimination on our communications networks. Now is the time to put broadband back under Title II, where it belongs — and under which many smaller companies continue to offer Internet access to the public.

    Nor is this debate about regulating the Internet. It’s about whether consumers or a few huge Internet service providers will control consumers’ online experiences. The Verizon-Google plan that The Post endorsed creates a two-tiered Internet at the expense of the open Internet we now have, almost completely excludes wireless and transforms the FCC from what is supposed to be a consumer protection agency into an agent of big business. I thought we’d had enough of that. To expect big telecom and cable duopolies to protect consumers while a toothless agency stands quietly by is to expect what never was nor will be.

    A Fallen Czar, One Year After
    Aug 30 2010, 12:47 PM ET

    The last time most people heard the name “Van Jones,” it was as a political football. He got burned on the national scene, and he’s learned a few lessons: play your cards close to the vest and keep moving forward. While his name’s been less heard, Jones is still making his case in inner cities, Appalachia and think tanks.

    In an interview before a speech to students at Howard University, Jones showed how much he’s walled off his time, alluding to it only indirectly: “I’m glad I had 6 months in the White House. Now I’m working on the same issues in other ways.”

      The Iraq war leaves a fog of ambiguity

      By Eugene Robinson
      Tuesday, August 31, 2010

      Now that the Iraq war is over — for U.S. combat troops, at least — only one thing is clear about the outcome: We didn’t win.

      We didn’t lose, either, in the sense of being defeated. But wars no longer end with surrender ceremonies and ticker-tape parades. They end in a fog of ambiguity, and it’s easier to discern what’s been sacrificed than what’s been gained. So it is after seven years of fighting in Iraq, and so it will be after at least 10 years — probably more, before we’re done — in Afghanistan.

      George W. Bush elected to send U.S. forces to invade and occupy Iraq, even though there was no urgent reason to do so. I won’t rehash all the arguments about what was suspected, reported or “confirmed” about the nonexistent weapons of mass destruction that provided the Bush administration’s justification for war. But even if Bush and his aides believed in their hearts that Saddam Hussein was actively seeking to develop nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, they had no reason to believe that the United States or its allies faced an imminent or even proximate threat.
