My boys are into knock-knock jokes, so right now I’m all about that. The ones they like the best make absolutely no sense. “Knock knock. Who’s there? Soledad. Soledad who? Hahaha, mommy you don’t know yourself!”

Two hours ago. Since then I’ve been napping. I curse all the time, I’m sorry to say.

Hold on folks!……the GOP is defending more seats in the House than the Democrats!…..

Daniel here at the PoliticalDog has been on my case about the Democrats losing the House…...Well…. hold On!…it seems that the Republicans are going to have to defend more seats than the Democrats!……Take that!

This from the PoliticalWire and the Washington Post’s ‘The Fix’……

GOP Retirements Mount in the House

With news that Rep. Henry Brown (R-SC) will not seek re-election, we noted Republicans now have 14 open House seats to defend this year while Democrats have just 10 open seats so far.

The Fix: “While much of the focus for the last month (or so) has been on Democrats’ retirement problems — set off by a quartet of announcements in swing and Republican-leaning districts over the last month — a broad look at the open seat playing field suggests more parity in terms of the two parties’ opportunities and vulnerabilities than conventional wisdom suggests.”

Oops!

SE on Gay marriage……..

Here’s his post from his site……….

MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 2010

A Basic Argument in Favor of Gay Marriage

Here’s my take on Gay Marriage, it really doesn’t affect you if two men or two women get married. I believe that you should marry the one you love, period. And God made you in his image for a reason. Why would he make you gay just to damn you to hell? The Government should stay out of marriage. These votes to ban gay marriage are borderline treasonous IMO. It tramples on our right to love whoever we want. Just my opinion, and I’d like to hear yours.

His link ……..

From the Dog…..while I can accept SE’s view…it isn’t that simple out there…Gay marriage initiatives have been going backwards in the state…..I posted here on that……this country right now is not ready to embrace the concept……

But I agree…who you are with is your business….. as long as it doesn’t hurt my business………

A view of the 2010 Gerogia Races……..from SE…….

One of our posters has a good piece on the Races in Georgia for 2010………I will admit I don’t know too much about the races in the state so I’m putting his thoughts out to you……here’s some of the calls……

Insurance  Commissioner  and GOPer John Oxendine for Governor …..over Democrat, ex- Gov Ray Barnes……

Lieutenant Governor: Incumbent GOP Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle is so far running for re-election and he probably won’t have much difficulty winning.

In the Secretary of State job….he’s picking guess who?…yea the GOPer State Senator Brian Kemp….against either democrat Attorney Gary Horlacher or Public Relations Executive Michael Mills.

For Attorney general…….Cobb County Commission Chair Sam Olens is favored…but is will run in a tight race against either State Representative Rob Teilhet or former Dougherty Circuit District Attorney Ken Hodges…..well looka here…he’s calling this race a tight one……

Here’s the link for the piece…..

Note:…..I do see a slight Republican bais…I hope he ‘s right for his sake…or he’ll never hear the end of it……

Thanks SE!……….

The NYPD tries its hand at diversity……

The largest Police Department in America is working hard to attract prospective police officers from around the world.….the Department, at about 40,000 offices boasts recruits from  88 different countries…..in graduating a new class of 250 rookies last week the department tries to keep pace with retirements that have eaten away at its manpower levels…..The Department, and its Housing and Transit Divisions,  still remains thousands of officers below it authorized strength due to budget restrictions…..

Under Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly the New York City Police Department has moved from just being the beat cop, or the cop in patrol car to having police officers, fly helicopters, drive boats, disable bombs, provide protection for high-profile criminal cases and provide protection for heads of states on their annual journey to the U.N…

In addition to the NYPD…..the New York City area has other smaller Police Departments that share police duties for the area’s transport facilities like the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department, Amtrak Police, and Metropolitan Transportation Authority Police …..

State Senator Ed Murray drops out of the race for Mayor of New Orleans…….

Murray who is black, and a State Senator, surprised a whole of people by dropping out the democratic race for the Mayor of New Orléans citing ‘racial divisiveness and money issues’…..Ray Nagin is not well liked and will not be in the race…..this leaves clear sailing Lt Governor Mitch Landreau (who is white) for the spot…while the name and family is well-known in the state….Murray dropping out has been taken hard by blacks who now see the chances of another black mayor of the majority minority city as just about gone……

While all of this is going on….Landreu get a boost by vowing to deal with the cities overriding corruption and maise’ issues…….
