"Accusing Russia of failing to live up to its commitments, President Barack Obama warned Moscow on Thursday that the United States has another round of economic sanctions 'teed up'--even as he acknowledged those penalties may do little to influence Vladimir Putin's handling of the crisis in Ukraine," the Associated Press reports from Tokyo.
"Teed up?" Seriously?
***Yet another idiot Democrat compares Republicans to Nazis.
Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is in some hot water with the Jewish community after his campaign tweeted—and then quietly deleted—several messages urging backers to read an article comparing black Republican voters to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis.
Chicago Sun Times readers were stunned last week to find that writer Neil Steinberg has penned a column comparing black supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis against their brethren.
“As a general rule, individuals will sell out the interests of their groups in return for personal benefit,” Steinberg wrote in his column, which claimed that Rauner is buying off the black community and its leaders. “It isn’t just a black thing. Jews collaborated with the Nazis during World War II, helping them to round up their own people in the hopes they’d be the last to go.”
Just imagine if a Republican did this.

***First Lady gets resume from girl with jobless dad. Oh, and I'll bet she pretended to care.
Michelle Obama's annual question-and-answer session with the children of Executive Office employees took a serious turn Thursday when a 10-year-old girl in the front row told the first lady that her dad had been out of work for three years. Then the girl popped up to hand the first lady his resume.
The first lady seemed a little taken aback but then explained to the other children, who might not have heard the girl's comment, that the matter was "a little private, but she's doing something for her dad." Mrs. Obama promised to deal with the matter later.
***Being grateful during tough times.
Faced with busy schedules and challenging lives, we often forget how fortunate we truly are. Even when things are going well we forget.
Being thankful should be treated as an important part of the day because appreciation contributes to our genuine happiness.
When you are grateful, it helps you to be more positive, receptive, optimistic, hopeful, peaceful, and grounded, especially during trying situations.
