Senate Democrats: 'Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Filibusters His Own Bill To Lift Debt Ceiling'

"Senator McConnell objects to his own proposal to lift the debt ceiling. Senate Democrats react." 

From Senate Democrats

It's hard to know whose right here unless you go through the whole story and do the research on it because even though I'm a registered Democrat, I tend not to automatically take the word of politicians, even politicians that I tend to agree with, like Dick Durbin, the Assistant Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate. 

But this sounds like that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the 2nd ranking Republican in the entire U.S. Congress, with only Speaker of the House John Boehner out ranking him in Congress on the Republican side, offered a bill to extend the debt ceiling. And Senate Democrats, led by Majority Leader Harry Reid, simply took McConnell up on the offer and McConnell objected to that. Perhaps not expecting Senate Democrats to say yes. If this is true, then this a bad case of Congressional obstructionism 101.

“The actress reflects on her life and career in her book, “Beyond the Cleavage.”

From ABC News 

“Raquel Welch is an award-winning film, television, and stage actress. She has starred in more than 45 films including One Million Years B.C., The Three Musketeers, and Legally Blonde, as well as the Broadway hit musicals Woman of the Year and Victor Victoria. She is the author of Raquel: The Raquel Welch Total Beauty and Fitness Program, an Icon Face of M.A.C. Cosmetics, and the current spokesperson for Foster Grant eyewear. She lives Beverly Hills.

Part autobiography, part personal philosophy, and full of practical advice for women of all ages, Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage is a book that skimps neither on entertainment nor on good plain advice.

She didn’t hatch out of an eagle’s nest, circa One Million Years B.C., clad in a skimpy fur bikini. She didn’t aspire to fame as a sex symbol. Yet, for many years after making her Hollywood entrance as every man’s fantasy, Raquel Welch was best…

Hollywood Goddess Raquel Welch on ABC News’s Good Morning America in 2010 talking about her book Beyond The Cleavage. She’s always been a bit of a comedian, or at least someone with a comedic sense of humor and not just gorgeous, with the beautiful body, etc. And she’s also very honest about herself, which is what I believe you see in her book.

Raquel made one interesting point that stood out with me in this interview and perhaps she made others, but one thing definitely which is really true and perhaps especially in her case, is that men have a tendency with women to not so much listen to what they are saying, but how they say it and watch them say what they are saying.

Take me for example: I simply love watching Raquel talk, because she’s still hot and always has been, but then you look at that big baby-face, with those beautiful round eyes and big cheeks and dimples and sweetie pie voice, she just makes guys simply want to go, aw!

Mariah Carey (speaking of hot baby-faces) has the same effect on me, but they are both interesting as well, so it is not as if I’m not hearing what they say. Raquel is a gorgeous, baby-face, adorable, woman, who still has a great voice and probably still sings very well, but she also has a great personality and is very funny and intelligent. And that is what she also wants the world to see, that even though she’s still a sex symbol and a Hollywood Goddess, that those things aren’t just physical with her, that there is more about her that people should pay attention to.
