Democratic congressional leaders celebrated the anniversaries of Medicare and Medicaid on Capitol Hill where Illinois congresswomen Jan Schakowsky popped balloons symbolizing what she called “myths” about the 2010 the health care law.

July 30 marks the 47th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid being signed into law.

“A week does not go by that someone doesn’t come into my office and say, ‘I cannot wait until I’m 65 years old. I’m counting the days so that I can get my knees fixed, so that I can do this procedure or that procedure,’ waiting until they have insurance covered by Medicare that is going to provide them the care that they need,” Schakowsky said Wednesday at the Capitol.

Democratic Caucus Chair Rep. John Larson of Connecticut, Rep. John Dingell of Michigan, Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, Rep. Xavier Bacerra of California and Puerto Rico Delegate Pedro Pierluisi joined Schakowsky for the ceremony.

Bibles in nightstands are a familiar amenity for hotel guests, but travelers seeking to read their favorite verse at one establishment will be in for a big surprise.

The Damson Dene Hotel, which touts itself as the perfect destination for a “peaceful break away from it all” in England’s picturesque Lake District, is making quite a noise for replacing the Bible with “Fifty Shades of Grey” in its 40 guest rooms.

Note: Amazon classifies this book as a ‘romance’ novel. A Good Reads Choice Awards Finalist for Best Romance “In a class by itself.” — Entertainment Weekly. It is part of a trilogy. This blog defines it as a ‘Erotic’ Romance.

The steamy novel — part of a trilogy by author E.L. James — has become a worldwide blockbuster thanks in large part to the graphic sex scenes that have its main characters engaging in bondage, sadomasochism and other exploits.

Damson Dene owner Jonathan Denby, who bought the hotel from a Methodist group 10 years ago, said he had been pondering for a long time what to do with the Gideons Bibles that had been placed in the rooms by the previous proprietors.

He decided that in a modern secular society it was “wholly inappropriate” to keep a religious book in people’s private bedrooms, so the search was on for a replacement.

“I was thinking originally of putting in a book by Ayn Rand — ‘Atlas Shrugged’ was my first thought,” Denby told NBC News.

~ And that book is the one that should be there!

The choice to offer “Fifty Shades of Grey” was done purely for fun and just because the novel is so popular, not for any deep philosophical reason, Denby added, noting that he himself has not read the book.

“It is a great shame that Bibles have been removed from rooms and very inappropriate to have been replaced by an explicit erotic novel,” Woodcock told The Westmorland Gazette.

This poll in the UK shows how they feel:

Which book would you be more likely to pick up in your hotel room?

The Bible 37%

“Fifty Shades of Grey” 42%

Neither 21%

Total Votes: 32,000

Denby told NBC he found religious books a “wholly inappropriate” choice for private bedrooms in England’s modern, secular society.

Retired special operations officers from the U.S. military have organized their own political action committee designed to highlight what they see as unforgivably security leaks by President Obama and his team.

Named Special Operations Speaks (SOS) PAC and led by three former officers with special operations experience, the group is leading a petition drive to try to raise the profile of recent stories blaming Mr. Obama for intelligence leaks.

“Let me lay it on the line: Barack Obama’s loose lips are doing worse than sinking ships – they’re putting our entire nation at risk,” the PAC said in an email trying to raise money to run ads attacking Mr. Obama.

See:

We, as veterans, legatees, and supporters of the Special Operations communities of all the Armed Forces, have noted with dismay and deep alarm the recent stream of highly damaging leaks of information about various aspects of America’s shadow war in the overall War on Terror. Our principles are the same as when we were in active service — Duty, Honor, Country.

Soldiers’ Cases Grab Attention of Special Ops Vets in Battle Against Government ‘Gone Rogue’

This new group of veterans argues that Mr. Obama has shown reckless disregard for secrecy, first by rushing “to get in front of the cameras” after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, and then more recently with news reports about drone assassinations and U.S. cyberattacks, which appeared to be based on classified information.

This week GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney called for a special counsel to investigate those leaks, and the Democratic chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee said she believed some of the leaks came directly from the White House — though a day later she retracted that statement.

The White House has vehemently denied that any of the president’s aides leaked classified information, and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has named two U.S. attorneys to conduct an internal investigation into the leaks.

Mr. Romney and Republicans want an independent special counsel instead, saying he or she would have more freedom.

Allen and Robert Delgado on Fox and Friends

Read more here:

WASHINGTON – An Iraq war veteran has come to the aid of his former boss, Rep. Allen West, to tell how the Florida congressman handed over his body armor on the way to combat in Iraq, an act that might have saved the soldier’s life.

In a campaign spot that will air on Florida television during the Olympics, Sgt. Robert Delgado (Ret.) says he worried when he was deployed to Iraq that he might not make it home to see his new child – his wife was eight months’ pregnant at the time.

NOW THIS is a True VP choice!!! We need Romney to win so Allen can at least be nominated as Joint Chiefs of Staff leader so we can once again be confident in our protections and our wonderful military can have a Commander they can believe in! ~ JP

Ignoring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic remarks, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday welcomed the army of men dispatched to the streets by Farrakhan to stop the violence in Chicago neighborhoods.

Farrakhan has a history of making anti-Semitic statements, Chicago’s first Jewish mayor has no interest in revisiting that controversy.

For the last two Mondays, black men in dress suits and bow ties fanned out across violence-plagued Chicago neighborhoods — first Auburn-Gresham, then South Shore — to form a human wall of protection against any sudden outbreak of gunfire.

The army of men, know as the Fruit of Islam, were led by Farrakhan, who ordered the show of force in response to last month’s brutal murder of seven-year-old Heaven Sutton.

Emanuel’s decision to steer clear of Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic remarks is a far cry from the 1994 controversy that followed former Mayor Richard M. Daley’s private meeting with Farrkakhan.

During the meeting, Daley prodded Farrakhan to work out his differences with Jewish leaders in talks arranged by the Commission on Human Relations. Daley even hinted that if those conversations did not take place, the Nation of Islam would have trouble winning the city approval needed for its planned development along the 79th Street commercial strip.

Jewish leaders refused to engage in the dialogue. They were so concerned about the mayor’s private meeting with Farrakhan they demanded an audience of their own to clear the air. Daley used that meeting to deny ever suggesting the give-and-take.

“There’s been a rather longstanding pattern where Minister Farrakhan has talked about wanting dialogue. There have even been a couple of instances where members of the Jewish community have met with him,” Michael Kotzin, director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, said at the time.

May 27, 2010 JERUSALEM — White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s visit to Israel with his family was meant to smooth over tensions between the two countries, but right-wing Jewish activists cursing him as a “hater of Israel” did their best Thursday to disrupt the visit. The activists have pursued the Emanuel family across the country, attempting to deter them from celebrating the bar mitzvah, or Jewish coming of age, of Emanuel’s eldest son Zach Emanuel.
