10-09-HotEntPlanetFocus2A happy Friday to everyone!

What a week! The health care bill, Copenhagen, and Tiger Woods. Guess which got the most coverage?

Once again, The Planet is the place to be on Friday Night for music, our live chat event and an absence of Tiger’s wood. (Sorry, couldn’t resist!) Today is also the day we encourage members to visit HuffPo to invite other bloggers here but limit their time on HuffPo in a kind of semi-boycott each Friday. Since HuffPo has added our direct URLs to the naughty word filter, you can use these URLs at HuffPo in your posts for people to click on to link to our site:

http://welcome.to/planetpov2.com

http://welcome.to/planetpov3.com

http://welcome.to/planetpov1211.com

BTW, if your comment goes to pending in an open thread there, it means they may have added that URL to the word filter too, so try one of the other links above and please let me know if a link seems added to their filter so I can create more links for us to use.

As HuffPo has disabled links to you tube, our Friday Night Music thread is the place to be for sharing and discovering music videos with your fellow members, all of which can be embedded in your comment, for your playing, viewing and listening pleasure while you blog.

Also, we present the next installment of our very successful and popular feature, Vox Populi. It is our live open chat between members on the events of the week, moderated by yours truly. Vox Populi begins at 7:00 pm PST, check out our Countdown To Vox Populi clock in the right hand column so you don’t miss it. You can get to the Vox Populi page by clicking on the links at the top of the page, LIVE EVENTS then VOX POPULI. For your convenience, here’s the link:

Hope to see you here tonight, as usual, should be a lot of fun!

JANUARY 15 2010 – MARCH FOR CHANGE

AMERICANS NEED TO MARCH ON WASHINGTON IN NUMBERS HERETOFORE UNSEEN TO DEMONSTRATE OUR SUPPORT FOR THE FUNDAMENTAL CHANGES WE STILL BELIEVE IN AND WANT TO SEE OUR PRESIDENT & REPRESENTATIVES FIGHT FOR.

We need to show our numbers, our vigor, and our commitment to REAL, SUBSTANTIVE, AND FUNDAMENTAL (not incremental) CHANGE in a way that will capture the national media’s attention and call attention to our discontent. This astroturf, right-wing, TeaBag movement has been successful in creating the misperception that “Millions” of Americans are fed up with Gov’t (specifically Obama).

Thought you all might want to know…..
Today on Chris Matthews
He lead off with A Teddy Kennedy Mention -Missing the Lion-
Boomer1949, your letter to Matthews may have had an affect??
Was Chris Matthews or staff checking us out?
Gosh knows they could use some real ideas over there …..

I saw that Pasty. Moving speech, wish they would have played the whole thing and cut Matthews out.

Different vid, but….

Patsy on this one so oft quoted:

sorry AdLib and all but these are mood enhancers for me.

PatsyT

Love this one!

I think a lot of this nation needs this kind of mood enhancement right now!

Two things, first, the Friday Music thread is up so feel free to post your music videos there. The theme for tonight is Mood Enhancers, which songs match your different moods or do you use to put you in a desired mood.

Second, I won’t be able to so Nellie will be hosting Vox Populi tonight, cheers to Nellie.

Thanks for showing Nellie the same fantastic respect you’ve all shown me as Moderator!

Have fun!

This looks significant — U.S. brokers agreement with China and India on global warming.

I’m sure the HP headline will be something to the effect that “Obama caves to China, India…”

That’s great news. Pat Buchanan is on the tube now saying this is all bullsh… “and does the sun go around the earth, Pat

Yes, HP had a VERY negative headline all day, something like “Disappointment & Disarray.” Now they have a neutral headline about the deal reached, but were careful to include a sub-headline to the effect that it was not particularly substantial according to some US official.

I believe the actual words used were “non-binding agreement”…

Anyone heard of this?

The Senate will conduct the most important vote of the health care debate on Monday at 1AM. (1 AM is not a typo) The vote requires 60 votes to approve. While on the phone and fax lines at the Senate are jammed, GradeGov gets thru via inside email addresses. So…Send the Senate a Christmas gift from you and let your voice be heard. Tell you friends and family before the 1AM Monday vote to go to GradeGov and tell the Senate how you feel about the Health Care reform bill. This could be a very important weekend for the future of your health care coverage.
.
Remember, democracy is not a spectator sport.
Stay tuned,

You know this is for real? He’s actually sponsoring the team because they lost their sponsors.

T-minus 16 minutes to kickoff…

Dog bless you, Nellie and now I understand the cryptic emails you and AdLib talked about on another thread last night.

You know, if I were more technically savvy, I could help you guys, because I’m retired and in between this site, working on my stories, and checking out the net, I’m online all day long until about 6 or 7 in the evenings AZ time.

This site is a great deal of work, and AdLib has devoted and still devotes so much time to it and btw, we are going to send another contribution after Christmas, but it’ll be from my husband’s paypal account.

I would so much love to help with things here, as I am online, pretty much all day, but I need help.
I’m really not a stupid person, but well, if a person shows me how to do something in person, I get it.
Most times the things I miss are so easy, and I’ve helped write computer manuals for operating systems, and even though you think you spell it out, there’s things that people miss.
Simple things.

Let me know if I can help in anyway.

And I thank you for your time and effort to this site.

X2, j’avaz, I used to do web pages for a few non profits when the www was new and sparkly and the fastest machine out was the 486. I knew how to write some in HTML and some in javascript. Today I am lucky to type a sentence. 🙂
Do to a few medical problems, i am on this machine many hours a day.
I really want to be of help for this wonderful site. I think I have just gotten lazy, and with so many good writers/posters here, I have gotten worse.
With 6+ new posts daily and all of the thoughtful comments with links, the site is getting to be a full-time job.~~My mind and bran are satisfied daily.

I want to echo j’avaz and thank AdLib, KQ, K7 and Kalima for starting this site. And for nellie ,who is always helping me and others so much.

Thanks for that, as you might see from my gravatar, I love Bob Marley.

javaz

Oh, us, too.
We have a couple concerts on tape, and when the husband gets home from his annual Christmas lunch with the other retired ‘geezers’ – oops, don’t tell my husband that I wrote that – but seriously, they all get together every year and compare meds, and whatever is going on with their prostate and colons and every year they invite me, as I worked with them all, but really, do I need to know any of that?

But when he gets home, I’ll ask him to find the tapes so I can share the titles.

They’re excellent concerts and I do believe one is in Monterrey.

That is funny. My daughter learned to love Reggae from me. She called me one day and said she was going to see Bob Marley at a fair in LA. She was so excited that I hated to tell her it was not going to be the “real” Marley. It was a street fair saluting the greats of Reggae.

I would *never* foist my music onto my children! 😉

People always get me down, talkin’ bout my gen-gen-generation.

Oh, to be babbling youth again.

Was it Mark Twain that said, youth is wasted on the young?

Indeed. He was one fine looking man!

Well, in case I’m not able to make a contribution later.
