My little chicken taquitos, how goes it?  I hope you are doing great and just awesome. I keep loosing track of time with so much going on, here in the NOHO. I cannot believe how quickly shit goes down here (elections, partisan stubbornness with a serious stench of foreign policy). Sometimes it makes you wonder how you keep from going under...down under, that is for a roll in the sun and fun! :-)
 Let's get ready for another round and another day, always ready here. manwasIdrunk.

That awkward moment when Republicans question the President’s patriotism and then outsource US foreign policy to Benjamin Netanyahu.

Tuesday, March 3, 2015


Sen. Bernie Sanders said Monday he would not attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu’s upcoming address to Congress to protest the lack of consultation with President Barack Obama in scheduling the speech.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint session of Congress Tuesday in hopes of derailing the White House’s plan to allow Iran to maintain peaceful amounts of nuclear energy. Tensions are high due to the fact House Speaker John Boehner, without the consent or even acknowledgement from the president, invited Netanyahu.
Today, Senators Al Franken of Minnesota and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island announced that they will boycott the address. With their announcements, that brings the total number to 55, almost all Democrats (except Bernie Sanders) and Republican Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina. So far it is forty-eight members of the House and seven members of the Senate. That represents roughly 13% of Congress.
In his statement, Franken called the address a “bipartisan spectacle” and said he would not feel comfortable attending:
“This has unfortunately become a partisan spectacle, both because of the impending Israeli election and because it was done without consulting the Administration. I’d be uncomfortable being part of an event that I don’t believe should be happening. I’m confident that, once this episode is over, we can reaffirm our strong tradition of bipartisan support for Israel.”
Senator Whitehouse called the address “mischievous” and said it would undermine their two nation’s friendly ally:
“I do not plan to attend the prime minister’s speech. I’m concerned that behind it was a mischievous effort to manipulate domestic politics in both countries, which should not be the terms of engagement between friendly allies.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren also announced she would not be attending the address, saying:
“I strongly support Israel, and I remain deeply concerned about the prospect of an Iranian nuclear weapon, which I discussed in detail with Prime Minister Netanyahu when we met in Jerusalem last November. It’s unfortunate that Speaker Boehner’s actions on the eve of a national election in Israel have made Tuesday’s event more political and less helpful for addressing the critical issue of nuclear nonproliferation and the safety of our most important ally in the Middle East.”

free internet fair internet- Thursday
On February 26, the FCC is going to decide if the internet should stay free and fair, or if it should be handed over to the cable companies.
You don’t want them to pick the cable companies.
Join everybody on the internet to help the FCC do the right thing.

    Oh snap my chimichangos!!! how goes it? I have been so excited by things going out over here in the NOHO. I am still looking for a new job. A better paying job, and yes they are still scarce, but that will not stop us here. I am possibly thinking about moving someplace more economical or at least with better view. I have got so many things to consider if that is the case ( a move), because that means packing and packing and more packing. (!!!!!)
 Lastly: the internet lets have it be equally available to all and not just whoever can sponsor a giant telecom/oilcompany. You cannot do a thing without the internet, I should know, this past week. No job searches, no posting, no updates, no applying anywhere, it's a necessity for anything logistic or daily urban life. FREE INTERNET. EQUAL INTERNET ACCESS. ManwasIdrunk.
ps do not forget to keep it real my little taquitos.
