Sunday Open Thread

Chester D. T. Baldwin  is a native of Liberty, Texas a small rural community 45 miles east of Houston. He is the 5th of five children and grew up in home where there was plenty of singing and praising God. When he was about 5 years old, his mother, Gussie, bought a piano and as his testimony song states (The Lord Made Me For Song) “when no one in the family could even play.” But God knew that Gussie’s little baby boy would need that piano one day. He is the father of three sons, Cedric Darnell, Cordale Douglass, and Christian Domineke. He also has two grandchildren, Chase Douglass and Cianna Dion.

Chester began his formal music training with Valencia Donatto, Carolyn Jefferson, and finally under the tutelage of Martha Ford Osagie. All of these teachers noted that he possessed a “supernatural” gift and anointing for God’s music and his ministry and pushed him to pursue his love.

    Fascinating that a snot-nosed, uneducated, self absorbed failure as governor of a state with a population a bit less than President Obama’s I.Q., Palin has the gall to criticize Obama’s handling of the uprising in Egypt….when anyone with a handful of brains knows this blithering idiot can neither find Egypt on a map or spell the word.
    With every confused, outlandish comment this “Twit of the Tundra” crawls out of her smelly den to make to a bewildered public she merely reinforces the widely held belief that she is not only abysmally ignorant but hopelessly meandering in traffic way beyond her comprehension.
    With all the hoopla she created when she appeared on the national scene it was only a matter of time that even her woefully misguided supporters would come to realize that she is simply an empty suit with zero credibility….as a politician…a parent…or a human.
    I hope there is some just punishment in store for the miserable wretch, John McSenile, who foisted this un-American bag of trash on us.

    Bill O’Reilly’s sit-down with President Barack Obama to air at 4:45 p.m. EST
    February 6th, 2011 2:07 pm ET

    With all major TV listings showing a four-hour pregame show for Super Bowl XLV Sunday night, many people may be sitting around wondering when the annual “interview with the President” is going to air during all of the festivities.

    With that in mind, here is your answer. Bill O’Reilly will be chatting with President Barack Obama at 4:45 p.m. Eastern time, less than 90 minutes before the official broadcast begins for football’s biggest night. The interview is expected to be a tough one for Obama, though O’Reilly has also promised to carry a different sort of tone in this interview than he does on “The Factor” — merely out of respect for the position that Obama holds in office.

    There’s no question that O’Reilly has been a heated opponent of the President at various times, so it should ultimately be a fascinating interview.

    Are you excited to see what happens here?

  3. Bush Allegedly Cancels Visit To Switzerland Due To Threat Of Torture Prosecution

    (Reuters) – Former U.S. President George W. Bush has cancelled a visit to Switzerland, where he was to address a Jewish charity gala, due to the risk of legal action against him for alleged torture, rights groups said on Saturday.

    Bush was to be the keynote speaker at Keren Hayesod’s annual dinner on Feb. 12 in Geneva. But pressure has been building on the Swiss government to arrest him and open a criminal investigation if he enters the Alpine country.

    Criminal complaints against Bush alleging torture have been lodged in Geneva, court officials say.

    Human rights groups said they had intended to submit a 2,500-page case against Bush in the Swiss city on Monday for alleged mistreatment of suspected militants at Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. naval base in Cuba where captives from Afghanistan, Iraq and other fronts in the so-called War on Terror were interned.

    Bush cancelled the trip? I thought he was all big & bad?

  4. Sarah Palin Blasts Obama’s Handling Of Egypt

    WASHINGTON — Sarah Palin says the Obama administration must tell Americans what it knows about who will be Egypt’s next leader.

    In a Christian Broadcasting Network interview released Saturday, the 2008 vice presidential candidate says the administration should level with the American people on what it knows about the Egyptian crisis.

    Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak wants to rule until September elections.
    Palin said the U.S. must find out who is “behind all the turmoil” and that “we should not stand” for a government led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Referencing a 2008 campaign ad, Palin said Egypt was the White House’s “3 a.m. phone call” but it “went right to the answering machine.”

    She says the U.S. must say whom it stands with, “and we do not have all that information yet.

    Does she even know where Egypt is located? The campaign is over bish. You and McShame lost! Get the fk off the national stage!

      the truth is, as the seriousness of this issue became clear and the implications for the entire Middle East were staring us in the face, nobody went asking that stupid woman anything. this is a serious matter, and only serious thinking people need to comment. CBN? THAT is where she thought she could make a comment on this? who the hell listens to CBN?

      SHE’S desperate to stay relevant, as it becomes glaringly obvious, to all but her most dedicated sycophants, that the world is a serious place. and if you want to get entertained, call up Ticketmaster. what were the only stories about her this week? how her daughter had been rebuffed by Washington University, and the coldness with which they dismissed her as nothing but and uneducated teen mother who had nothing to offer them- as college students, and how her grifting ass wanted to trademark ‘ Brand Palin’, yet she was too stupid to even get THAT right.

      …and she’s totally forgotten where Alaska is. Do we need to give her geo lessons?

    ‘Inception,’ ‘Social Network’ win at writer awards
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The sci-fi smash “Inception” and the Facebook drama “The Social Network” took top screenplay honors Saturday night at the Writers Guild Awards.

    “Inception” writer Christopher Nolan won for best original screenplay and “The Social Network” writer Aaron Sorkin won for best adapted screenplay. The awards were handed out by the Writers Guild of America in simultaneous ceremonies at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles and the AXA Equitable Center in New York.

    “The Social Network,” which Sorkin adapted from the Ben Mezrich book “The Accidental Billionaires,” was expected to win Saturday. But the original screenplay category was considered a toss-up between “Inception,” the psychosexual thriller “Black Swan” and the boxing drama “The Fighter” because current awards-season darling “The King’s Speech” was not eligible for a WGA award as it was not made under the writing union’s contract guidelines.

    Other of the top films of 2010 like “Toy Story 3” and “Winter’s Bone” were ineligible for the same reason.

    Muslim Brotherhood Join Egypt Talks
    Published: February 6, 2011

    CAIRO — Members of the Muslim Brotherhood joined other opposition groups meeting with Vice President Omar Suleiman on Sunday in what seemed a significant departure in the nation’s uprising and political history.

    The Brotherhood is an outlawed Islamist organization often depicted by the authorities as committed to the overthrow of the secular order in the heart of the Middle East. Official attitudes toward it here have swung between outright repression and reluctant tolerance. But it has remained Egypt’s biggest opposition force against the autocratic rule of President Hosni Mubarak.
