“Bold and daring or timeless and classic? It’s hard to choose just one winner for red carpet fashion, which is why we nominated a select group of fashionable celebrities who wore their designer gowns well at the Emmy Awards 2013. From “30 Rock” mastermind Tina Fey (who looked amazing) to comedian Sarah Silverman (she wins our thrifty award), see which stars worked our favorite frocks of the evening:”
Are you tired of seeing Ted Cruz mouthing off on TV? Why does the media keep showing his rants? Only one other prominent Republican, Mike Lee, echoes what Cruz is saying. (And, then there is Sarah Palin.) It can’t be said enough that Ted Cruz and the Tea Party have been trying to tear down the U.S. government for three years. Freshman Senator,Ted Cruz is using the Tea Party to gain national prominence. Note: You don’t see/hear the media touting the many accomplishments of Ted Cruz and the Tea Party. OBSTRUCTION IS NOT GOVERNING! Our Founding-Fathers would be ashamed of Ted Cruz, the Tea Party and their corruption of the legislative process. Joe Scarborough described Ted Cruz as a “surrender monkey”…”running around trying to not look like a fool.” Ted Cruz is hardly a fool. He is a Harvard graduate. He sees the many Americans who won’t speak out about the travesty that is the 113th Congress and Speaker John Boehner. Cruz is using this vacuum to legitimize his run for the Presidency in 2016. Ted Cruz is a freshman. What has the man done but spout vitriol? What legislation bears his name? What bi-partisan coalitions has he forged in the Senate to get the people’s business done? How many days has he actually spent in the Senate? Ted Cruz is merely a slick-haired freshman with a big mouth! —GoodOleWoody
Lamenting “once more” a deadly mass shooting, President Barack Obama assured families of the Navy Yard massacre victims at a memorial service on Sunday there was “nothing routine about this tragedy, there’s nothing routine about your loss.”
The service was held at the Washington Marine Barracks, just blocks from where authorities sayAaron Alexis shot and killed 12 Navy Yard workers on Monday afternoon and injured eight others.
“I fear there’s a creeping resignation that this is somehow the new normal,” Obama said. “It ought to obsess us, it ought to lead to some sort of transformation.”
Alexis, 34, a former Navy reservist who had been working as a civilian contractor with access to the site, was killed by officers who responded to the shooting spree.
And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Obamacare or Nobamacare.
The GOP wants Nobamacare, a death sentence for those who cannot afford healthcare in what is still a very wealthy society, at least for some.
