Rep. Matt Cartwright attacks critics of his anti-veteran vote as ‘trolls’

http://twitter.com/#!/NathanWurtzel/status/385461575475138560

Last night, Twitchy editor Erik Soderstrom set up a website that lists the 164 House Democrats who voted against funding for veterans’ benefits, along with their Twitter handles:

A lot of people have been using Erik’s site, and at least one congressman, Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Penn., didn’t seem to appreciate the attention:

Maybe he is auditioning to be an Obamacare customer service representative.

By the way, Rep. Cartwright, at least one of those “trolls” is your constituent:

Money falls from sky during Hart Senate Building protest [pics, video]

The House recently extended a provision that makes it harder for environmentalists and their lawyers to prevent farmers from planting genetically-modified crops. Opponents refer to it as the “Monsanto Protection Act,” and some GMO protesters showed up today at the Hart Senate Office Building to make it rain “Monsanto money”:

What it looked like during the cash downpour:

This type of “protest” is actually an Abbie Hoffman ripoff:

Here’s a brief video:

Can the cash be swept into a pile and used to fund a couple of White House tours or to re-open a memorial for a little while?

FLOTUS pushes debunked wage gap myth on ‘Equal Pay Day’ [pic]

Is anyone else even paying attention to them at this point? Even some people on the left have debunked this equal pay canard.

That graphic is logically incoherent.

It’s not measured—it’s averaged. So because many women leave the workforce for extended periods to raise children, on average they have less seniority and experience, so they are paid less on average. That’s not an injustice. It’s a result of different life choices.

In cases where men and women are performing the same jobs at the same level of seniority, salaries are very similar.

It’s true. Often, the Democrats who constantly preach equal pay don’t pay their male and female staffers similar salaries.

Maybe they just don’t want to admit that men and women often have different dreams…on average.

Sarah Palin reclaims ‘see Russia from my house’ line with brutal caption

Our thanks also to Aunt Billie’s friend in Texas for the great caption. That “Saturday Night Live” skit (like most “Saturday Night Live” skits) had long passed its freshness date. Time for some topical humor from today’s headlines.

Classic.

What This Dying Father Did For His Little Girl Is Simply Beyond Words. It’s Unforgettably Beautiful.

Jim Zetz knew that he didn’t have long on this earth. He was a father that was fighting a losing battle against Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. So, he wanted to do something special for the beloved wife and daughter he was going to leave behind. It all started with a photo series by photographer Lindsey Villatoro. She took pictures of Jim and Grace during one of her “forever loved” photo sessions. After meeting the couple, she was moved. She said they were “the most beautiful people I’ve known are those who have known trials, have known struggles, have known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.” Since Jim’s future was so uncertain, Lindsey wanted to help the family make a memory they could cherish forever. The resulting moment is so touching, you might need to grab a few tissues when you see it.

Grace told the photographer that their 11 year-old, Josie, was sad her father would miss so many things in her life.

With Lindsey’s help, the Zetz family organized a special moment for Josie and her daddy.

It was on Josie’s 11th birthday.

Since Jim wouldn’t be around to see her real wedding, they threw a wedding for the little girl he COULD attend.

Jim walked Josie down the aisle…

Slipped a ring on her finger and they were pronounced “daddy and daughter.”

No matter what happens with Jim, this is a moment that he and his daughter will have forever.

They won’t forget it, and neither will anyone there that day.

“I met Josie [the day of the wedding],” the photographer said. “She was a little bit overwhelmed when her mom picked her up from school and told her. She just needed a moment. Later, she said, ‘This is the best day of my life.’ She was very glad and excited to have these moments.” To see more of Lindsey’s work, visit her online portfolio. Source: Love Song Photography via Daily Mail It’s tragic that sickness tears loving families apart. This reminds us to embrace and appreciate those we love while we can. Please share this wonderful moment the Zetz family experienced with others.
