But in the interest of the book Johnny's writing, it should be noted that white tiger lilies are my very favorite.
I love them, I need to get some bulbs. I have about a dozen pink stargazer lilies. Nothing smells up a room better than picking some and bringing them in the house. I love them, yellow dust on your nose and all. lol Those white ones are beautiful. Most of my flowers are pink, red roses, pink roses, a mix of both. My neice gave me all the pink bulbs I planted a few years ago. They are awesome. My Mom's favorite color was pink. She loved to get them too.

Did you know lilies meaning signifies "wealth and pride." I have the PRIDE down, wealth, not so much...but I have what I need.:)

Here is some for you with some of my pink ones mixed in. Just looking at them makes me smell them. haha

You're more than welcome, chick, and I meant every word of it. You didn't miss much. Glad you're feeling better today.
Much better, thanks. I woke up to some sunshine and laid on the beach for a while, then ran to the mall for my chocolate/caramel apples.

It was a good morning. I have an engagement party at 5 and no gift yet. I should probably get on that soon.

For ari/jay....your crack about silence for your rambling glee at the President's ratings going down...big deal. They will go back up as soon as more people sift through the teabagging/GOP propaganda. I still bet he never leaves office with the worst in history 22%. haha Either way you are stuck with him 3 more years...deal with. The MAJORITY votes counted. Loser denying lemming tool.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove (see trends).

Presidential Job Approval Center
Be sure to compare to other Presidents, but especially pay attention to those numbers for women (48%), 18-29 age group (49%) and 50-64 (47%) age group.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/124922/Presidentia...

You act like it's 22% like Bush had, the lowest in HISTORY. When it gets that low you can jump for glee asswipe. 1000+ polled doesn't represent the MAJORITY that voted for him. Keep trying ari/jay. As soon as they sort out all the lies and so called scandals it will go up. Watch and see.

RIP GOP

Rand Paul’s week of delusion

The 2016 hopeful can’t decide if he’s a brave truth-teller or just another bobbing and weaving politician

If nothing else, I usually give Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul credit for boldness. But in a publicity barrage this week, the man who’s almost certainly running for president this week behaved more like Mitt Romney than Romney’s two-time rival Ron Paul, Rand’s dad.

We saw Deceptive Paul in an answer to a question from Bloomberg’s Joshua Green about how he’d cut the federal budget. He compared his cuts to “the Penny Plan, which cuts 1 percent a year for five or six years and balances the budget. Many Americans who have suffered during a recession have had to cut their spending 1 percent, and they didn’t like doing it, but they were able to do it to get their family’s finances back in order. I see no reason why government can’t cut 1 percent of its spending.”

Maybe it can, maybe it can’t – but that’s not what Paul is proposing. As Ezra Klein points out, Paul’s budget eliminates the Departments of Commerce, Education. Housing and Urban Development, and Energy, and cuts the State Department budget by more than 50 percent. Maybe, like Rick Perry, Paul couldn’t remember all the agencies he wanted to cut. More likely, he’s doing the GOP shuffle, hiding his stands that are unpopular with voters.

Green did bring out Wingnut Paul once, by asking him whom he’d pick for Fed chair.“Hayek would be good,” he joked, referring to the father of Austrian economics,“but he’s deceased …[Milton] Friedman would probably be pretty good, too, and he’s not an Austrian, but he would be better than what we have.” When Green pointed out Friedman is dead, too, Paul deadpanned,“Yeah. Let’s just go with dead, because then you probably really wouldn’t have much of a functioning Federal Reserve.” Sounds like his old man!

We saw Prickly Paul when he was interviewed on NPR Wednesday by CNBC’s John Harwood, who asked him about his former staffer, the neo-Confederate Jack Hunter. He blasted Harwood for not wanting “an intelligent discussion.”

When the host quoted the Economist describing “racist and nativist” elements within libertarian politics, Paul said,“Don’t you have something better to read than a bunch of crap from people who don’t like me? I mean that won’t make for much of an interview if I have to sit through reading after recitation of people calling me a racist.”

Paul added, in reference to Hunter,“If you look at his writings, there are a lot of problems and a lot of disagreements, and none of it do I support, but none of it was racist.” That’s rich: Paul is now the judge of what’s racist. But wait, there’s more. Not only is he the best judge of what’s racist, he’s the best defender of minority rights, too.

“There is no greater defender, truly, of minority rights, if you consider minorities to be the color of your skin or the color of your ideology, than myself,” he told Harwood.“I will stand up there with the most progressive members of the caucus.”
That’s Delusional Paul.

Then he went the full Reince Priebus, accusing ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos of manufacturing the GOP war on women because he asked Mitt Romney if he supported the Supreme Court’s Griswold v. Connecticut decision legalizing birth control.“You can look back to the last primary season and you wonder whether there was collusion between some reporters,” he told Geraldo Rivera.
“You know, Stephanopoulos asks an obscure question about Griswold and birth control when no Republicans were bringing up anything about trying to put limits on birth control … I’m in favor of the Griswold decision because I am in favor of privacy. But the thing is, it was a weird thing to bring up in a debate, and nobody understood why. But then for two years, the president’s campaign then ran ads saying that the Republicans were against people allowing birth control. So you wonder if there was a concerted action between a former Democrat operative and basically the president’s campaign.”

Rivera challenged him:“Are you alleging that George Stephanopoulos was a Democrat plant during the debate?”

“I’m saying that there, it makes you wonder, and he’s also said publicly that he has frequent correspondence with his friends who are still involved with the White House. So the question is, are you going to get a fair shake, and I think it’s a reasonable question for Republicans to ask.”
In fact, Rick Santorum had already been talking about contraception, and insisting Griswold had been wrongly decided, on the campaign trail. So I’m not sure if that was Crackpot Paul or Lying Paul. You be the judge.

Whether it helped him or not, Paul’s star turn with major national reporters this week is the clearest evidence yet that he’s planning a 2016 presidential run. What’s also clear is that he hasn’t decided whether he’s going to run as the far-right extremist that he is, or whether he’s going to try to tone down or simply hide his less popular stands. Since his appeal with the Tea Party base lies not only in his extremism but in his candor about it, the latter would seem a risky strategy. He’ll have plenty of competition to his right if he stumbles. You know how Tailgunner Ted Cruz feels about “squishes.”

Ted Cruz will never be president

Breathless staffers say he’s got 2016 plans, but the Tea Party bully will never win a national election. Bank on it
During the 2012 election cycle I occasionally ran stories declaring that various Republicans being touted as White House material “will never be president.” Sarah Palin after her narcissistic Gabby Giffords meltdown; Newt Gingrich early in his race-baiting campaign; Mitt Romney after his British Olympics screw-up.

I batted 1.000 for that cycle, but it was easy. In 2016, Republicans won’t be facing a Democratic incumbent, so somebody has a shot. I recently wrote that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will never be president, due to his out-of-control anger issues, but candidly, I think that’s my riskiest one yet.

I feel no risk in stating unequivocally that despite the delusions of his Senate staffers and supporters, who told the National Review’s Robert Costa that they expect him to run in 2016, far-right Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will never be president. Costa is a good reporter with excellent sources; it’s a good story. I’m not doubting its veracity. So far he’s been more circumspect about his 2016 plans than Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, which some people attributed to questions about his eligibility for the presidency (he was born in Canada but his mother was a U.S. citizen). The story states clearly that Cruz’s legal advisers say he’d have no problem with eligibility. So there are unlikely to be Cruz “birthers”; Democrats don’t do xenophobia and racism quite like the far right, which loves Cruz.

And according to Costa, the Cruz boom isn’t just delusion within his office, or on the outer fringe of the Tea Party.“If you don’t think this is real, then you’re not paying attention,” an unnamed “Republican insider” told Costa.“Cruz already has grassroots on his side, and in this climate, that’s all he may need.”

Costa’s story comes a day after our Alex Pareene laid out how the arrogant Cruz is alienating members of his own party – he recently called them “squishes”– by hyping his role in defeating background checks. No doubt this news of his 2016 dreams only 100 days into his first Senate term will further alienate many colleagues. But there’s no doubt he’s endeared himself to the party’s far right by belittling Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her constitutional knowledge and maligning Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel with such malevolence that Sen. John McCain rebuked him. Tailgunner Ted – he even looks like Joe McCarthy – also thrilled conservatives by claiming there were 12 “communists” on the faculty when he studied at Harvard Law School (I don’t think he was including Obama).

Cruz will certainly scratch an itch on the right. Just as in 2012, there will be two different contests for the GOP in 2016 – the Tea Party primary, and then the contest for the actual candidate. One person might win both, but it’s hard to imagine. Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry each took a turn as Tea Party darling, and Bachmann and Cain actually took turns as front-runners, but all were fairly laughable throughout.
In 2016, that Tea Party primary will likely include Sens. Rand Paul and Marco Rubio – Ted Cruz’s addition would hurt both of them, but competition among the three right-wingers might also help the chances of a Chris Christie or even Jeb Bush.

Costa also tweeted out some key points from his story, and this one was interesting:

Movement players who are mixed on Paul, sour on Christie, anti-Jeb, and disappointed in Rubio are actively looking for a new candidate
They’re “disappointed” in Rubio because of his immigration reform push, and “mixed” on Paul probably because he’s such a loon – one month filibustering over the use of drones, the next month saying we should use drones against domestic criminals. Paul doesn’t seem quite ready for prime time, let alone the Oval Office. That certainly leaves room for the smooth Cruz as the Tea Party favorite unsullied by compromise, and relatively sane – but expert in the kind of crazy the Tea Party likes.

But Cruz is a far-right ideologue. Despite his surname, he’s unlikely to help the GOP win over Latinos – he only got 35 percent of the Texas Latino vote in 2012, less than John Cornyn got in 2010, and besides, he sometimes plays down his Latino (Cuban) roots, proclaiming himself Irish and Italian (on his mother’s side) as well. He’s positioning himself to win the Tea Party primary but he’ll never win a general election.

Still, he’s even making a sly run into blue-state territory, headlining the New York Republican Party’s dinner May 29. He might rake in Wall Street cash – PayPal libertarian gazillionaire Peter Thiel is a big fan, and Cruz’s wife works for Goldman Sachs — but most New York Republicans are unlikely to forgive his vote against Hurricane Sandy aid. Here’s hoping Rep. Peter King can pause his anti-Muslim grandstanding to remind New Yorkers they shouldn’t let a man wwho wouldn’t give them Sandy funding use them as an ATM. We’ll keep you posted.

I wouldn't part with mine...Fleetwood Mac, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Bob Dylan, Heart, Jackson 5 (haha) etc. etc. I have a slew of them and a lot of Harley Davidson shirts from around the country. I love them like my photo albums, every shirt tells a story. hahaha Cherish all of them.

Israel Hernandez-Llach, 18, was spotted by officers allegedly vandalizing an abandoned building in Miami Beach with graffiti on Tuesday morning. Police said that Hernandez took off, prompting an officer to give chase and fire his stun-gun at the teen, who reportedly ignored commands to stop running. Hernandez died in custody less than an hour later.
