Hello you wonderful person you!!!
Still enjoying the beauty of yesterday
I hope that feeling stays for a looooong time!
PRESIDENT OBAMA’S CONTINUED FOCUS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF CITIZENSHIP
Reflections on the power of “we”
When I hear constant cries about “Obama should do ________?” it strikes me that too many of us have forgotten the meaning of “we” in the slogan “Yes We Can!”
As I watch and listen to President Obama, what I’ve heard as his one overriding message is that he wants us to recognize the power of “we.” For example, his entire speech at the 2012 Democratic Convention was dedicated to the idea of citizenship. And yesterday in honor of the 1963 March on Washington, he took up that theme again.
I posted this at the end of the last thread before I realized a new one had started. I hope you don’t mind that I brought it over. I suppose I’m wondering if there is something we need to do regarding the younger folks.
This is bothering me, so I must share. Yesterday, three young soldiers visited me.
“What’s that you’re looking at on television?” they asked.
Me: “The anniversary celebration of the March On Washington.
I explained…yada, yada…”you know, the “I Have a Dream Speech.”
“Oh!…Well, who is that speaking?”
“Medgar Evers widow.”
“Who in the world is Medgar Evers?”
I was so disgusted, I had to preach and teach a little bit. Then I discovered not one of them was registered to vote. I put them in my car and drove them to register…now I just hope they follow through.
Are our young people that unaware of their history?
History needs to be taught in schools and parents have a huge responsibility to do the same. It seems people are just living in the moment and not realizing the roots of everything.
Thank you for taking time to educate those young men and for registering them to vote. Just nudge them to vote in 2014 and 2016. Seems like some young people don’t understand the importance of history and political power.
Hey there all you O’s!!!! It’s a great getting up day in TODville, Williston No. Dakota as I visit #1 on her earth day today!!!!
I just heard on the local TV news that the Federal Government had held back $Millions in mineral money for this state due to the sequester. The money is being released to the state now. I’ve been so disconnected, that I don’t know if the funds held for the sequester are being released for al programs or if this is another one where they found a way to provide the funds, in spite of the sequester.
Off I go to take in more of the beautiful sights and vistas that No Dakota.
You are in Williston, ND? I lived there for a year. ’75-’76. I hope you find the goodness there. I know you will. Too bad I forgot my address and lost my address book. I could tell you where I lived. A little United Methodist Church two blocks South and a park about three blocks away. Bundled up my son and his friend on cold days and never missed a week-day. It gets very, very cold there. Who is in Williston?
Wyoming got money back too and Sen. Enzi is bragging. I don’t see it as a good thing. R’s getting there way. WY doesn’t pay our fair share in Federal taxes. In fact we get back more than any other state. Just over 1/2 a million people. I’m one who doesn’t mind paying taxes to live in a civilized society.
Cookemom, there are badlands to the South of Williston. That is where Teddy Roosevelt fell in love with the West and started some National Parks I think. I’ll have to google to be sure. My mind is too dependent on google to remember my history. It’s how we got the Teddy Bear you know. Well, I didn’t, my brother did. :’( Have fun. Does your #1 live in Williston? What does he do, or he?
Carolmae, me and #2 daughter are visiting my #1 daughter who has been living in Williston for 2 years now. I kept her kids (teen daughter and 7 year old son) until she got settled. They spent last school year in Williston and have started this school year (junior and 3rd grades). My daughter loves it here, her son is thriving in the great outdoors, the teenager is ok with it, but does miss the options big city living offers.
I’ve been taken on all sorts of sight seeing excursions, both here and in So Dakota. I think there’s a plan to get me to Montana as well. I enjoy all the open space and such, but I guess I’m a city girl at heart.
White House announces new gun restrictions cbsn.ws/1duinX0— CBS News (@CBSNews) August 29, 2013
Good West Coast morning Chipsticks & TOD family.
I devoted soooo much time yesterday with you guys that today is “Keep my nose to the Grindstone Day”
Thank you for posting the PBS coverage. I recorded it on MSNBC and upon watching it later did not even get to see those beautiful young ladies during their wonderful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner.
Their father was so proud of them this morning on our KTLA Morning News Show. The station did him a fair shake, because they showed the girls twice during his Anchor time.
In which the MSM search for the mother of all shoehorns: The Clintons Need a Restart ti.me/1fllpZa via @TIME— meta (@metaquest) August 29, 2013
Good article from the guy who brought us ” Primary Colors” the blockbuster book and then the movie starring John travolta and Emma Thompson.
When I don’t like about this article is how at the end he tries to shoehorn HRC’s election considering the facts he puts forward in the main thesis. Why should we feel stuck with this? I’m sick of people assuming the White House is hers for the taking. Klein thinks she just needs to do some fine tuning or something. UGH.
And what makes it so bad Meta, the same folks who are salivating over HRC now will be the first to try and tear her down if she decides to run.
Yes, it’s all just a game and money maker for them. We are in trouble.
Meta, no argument from me. A game to them. A difference between a decent life and a harder struggle to us.
Just wondering why Hillary was not there for the ceremony to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
Might’ve been seen as politicizing because of 2016 speculation. She doesn’t hold an office or represent any official organization now. Not sure what her role would’ve been.
Again, I ask …. HOW do you know she was not there? How do you know Chelsea was not there?
Was Mrs. Carter there? Amy?
Because the cameras and pundits were not all over her with 24/7 coverage. You don’t honestly think they would pass up such a chance? Or do you? Sound a little thin skinned there to me.
Mrs Carter & Amy aren’t projecting themselves as possible presidential candidates. And neither is the media. Also. Too.
Thanks LunarSea. To each her own, but I wondered the same thing. Also, PBO shouted out VP and Mrs. Biden. Sure he would have done likewise had Hillary been there.
Testing to see if I will begin receiving notification of new posts again…(I once again checked the Notify box)
Sending you a test message, GGail.
Hi theo! Thanks
btw – did our friend VC & her offspring get off ok this morning?
Mike Rogers, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and former FBI just told Mrs Greenspan that he has been briefed and seen the evidence and there is no doubt.
Asked if PBO needs to go to Congress first legally. He said NO he doesn’t but it would be better is he does . He also said we do not have a vote on it

Press Briefing with Josh Earnest happening now……
Love Josh Earnest and the way he handles these buffoons.
He really is terrific. One of my favorite members of PBO’s staff. And of course that voice is so distinctive.
Jackal Ed “Cheshire Cat’ Henry is trying desperately to conflate Iraq with Syria. He’s going all the way back to things Barack Obama said in 2002 to try and ask his gotcha questions. Josh is doing a nice job of making him look like an amateur gossip columnist.
Now Major Garrett is demanding to know if there is ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY about CW use because he has heard about concerns from ‘other’ unnamed sources who think otherwise. Imagine if all of this intense questioning had happened under the previous administration.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Bob Woodward is scheduled to teach a journalism seminar at Yale University in the spring.
Woodward and Washington Post colleague Carl Bernstein helped break the Watergate scandal in the 1970s that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.
Woodward, himself a 1965 Yale graduate, tells the Yale Daily News (http://bit.ly/19QjAmv) that he hopes to teach students about the intensive and immersive reporting method he developed throughout his career.
Woodward says there’s a place for “total immersive journalism” at a time when the media is defined by “impatience and speed.”
I hope no one enrolls

WASHINGTON — The United States government took an historic step back from its long-running drug war on Thursday, when Attorney General Eric Holder informed the governors of Washington and Colorado that the Department of Justice would allow the states to create a regime that would regulate and implement the ballot initiatives that legalized the use of marijuana for adults.

Mornin’/afternoon y’alls! Found some old newspapers in the basement from a house painting project years ago… Thought this bit of history would bring a smile to your pretty faces! http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/01/us/politics/01biden.html?_r=0 The front page and some of the other articles are disturbing even in hindsight, maybe more so in hindsight, but I won’t link them all. Have a look tho, it’s as if the writing was on the wall and no one wanted to see it!! Big big Thursday hugs all around. Hope VC and offspring have a pleasant return to their cool Canadian climate!
Wow. The WashPo just went "full Snowden". Newspaper publishes America's ‘Black budget’ summary wapo.st/17mcAxu— Paul Harris (@paulxharris) August 29, 2013
When is it wrong for a newspaper to publish this kind of data…
It’s so irresponsible and dangerous for our national security. These people are on an ego trip.
After reading a comment on a previous thread about the opening of Rachel’s show last night, I watched it. I learned some new information, which I always do when she is at her best. It is quite a powerful segment. Then I watched the second segment, in which Clarence Jones, MLK’s attorney and assistant spoke. Once again she was at her best as she said nothing during the entire segment.
He started talking, and talked the entire time and she did not interrupt him. In the first segment she had shown the Birmingham march of children in which Bull Connor the police chief….I remember HIM! firehosed and arrested 8 year old children, and put hundreds in jail. The cost of bail was prohibitive. Harry Belafonte raised $50,000, but $100,000 more was needed, can you imagine! Well….Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of NY contacted MLK’s attorney, and Jones went to Chase and met with Rockefeller. The rest is so dramatic, I don’t want to spoil it. I recommend watching it…..in fact, Chips, those two segments would be powerful to post here.

How about the judge from Montana who said that the 14 year old girl was just to much to blame for the 49 year old teacher raping her. These are some sick ass judges sitting on these benches. Women hating men. I don’t remember the sentence that creep judge gave that raptist
The girl who was rape at 14 committed suicide at 16. A 49 year old teacher rape a 14 year old, and you have a judge placing blame on the 14 year old. He doesn’t deserve to be a judge.And the teacher got 30 days in jail by that piece of crap judge.
He’s still not as bad as the Judge in Indiana who released a man for raping a 5 year old. The judge said the little girl was promiscuous.
What !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you kidding? A 5 year old don’t know what promiscuous means. These judges are sick bastards.
Judges should all be appointed based on their legal skills – they should NEVER be elected officials. That would be a start in sorting them out. Same with DAs & Police Chiefs and the like. They need to be skilled and knowledgeable – not smiley faced politicians
Guess Eric Holder has said that DOJ will let Washington and Colorado’s pot laws go into effect. Awesome news!

Phew! Now I can take a Nap.
I promised myself that I would not get into this daily back and forth about Syria but today I had to go out at lunch and I have that Sirius Satellite Radio so I tuned into MSNBC. Tamron Hall’s show was airing and let me just say that it was sickening listening to the exuberance she displayed at taking military action against Syria. She was almost breathless with excitement.
I lost my appetite after that.

BREAKING: Obama briefs Boehner on Syria, speaker seeks further talks, consultation with Congress.— The Associated Press (@AP) August 29, 2013
Don’t know if this was discussed already, but it’s my thought that the President specifically ASKED Boehner to send him the letter asking for responses to questions, after he had his administration staff draft it. Why would Boehner all of a sudden grow a brain and have 14 questions on anything ready to ask the President? Come on. I’m not buying that. Boehner’s been sleepwalking through his entire Speakership. Totally believe the President is orchestrating each and every part of this with Congress … unless I’ve missed something while not paying attention.
Really came here to post that I heard a nameless faceless guy on MSNBC say Boehner wants an answer. Ha! May just have to tweet Boehner later that the American public wants an answer, to the age-old question: WHERE ARE THE JOBS, JOHN?
JOB, there must have been something really powerful slipped into Boehner’s cocktail to wake him from his coma. I can see him lifting his head saying, “answer, I want an answer…uh what was the question?”
Ha! You nailed it, jackieG!

First of all, what is UP with that freaky mask he’s wearing? Does he think he’s Batman, or the Lone Ranger? Seriously — these republiturds have some serious emotional and mental issues.
Also, apparently his uncle, Asa Hutchinson, is head of the NRA’s NRA “National School Shield Initiative” Task Force[edit source | editbeta]
From Asa’s wikipedia file:
In the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the National Rifle Association (NRA) assembled a task force of experts in homeland security, law enforcement training, and school safety to review school security standards in select areas of the country. The goal of the task force was to come up with a comprehensive plan to address the safety of children in schools and to prevent such shootings in the future. Hutchinson served as the leader of the task force.
Hmmmm, can we say “conflict of interest”????
Julian Assange with Wikileaks' Russian operative, Israel Shamir. http://t.co/aGHCtX5wRc— Ｇｕｓ (@Gus_802) August 29, 2013
Oh my…what a crooked couple…
Has Wikileaks Been Infiltrated by Russian Spies?
Interesting bit of analysis, Lh!
“At the same time, Wikileaks’ long and growing involvement with the Russian government is also difficult to ignore — and the immediate co-optation of Snowden by FSB agents in Moscow makes the entire move look like a well-planned operation.
Pretending Wikileaks did not deliver Snowden to the FSB requires ignoring a preponderance of evidence to the contrary. It makes Wikileaks’ gratitude to the Russian people — and thus, government — seem almost farcical. It might also explain why the Russian siloviki union, which contains former Russian intel and military officials, offered Snowden money and support.
There’s also no question Wikileaks has profited handsomely from the affair. Just months after teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, in July the organization announced it was raising nearly a thousand Euros a day, which is close to its peak fundraising in 2010.
So maybe working so closely with Russia wasn’t such a bad idea, after all — Wikileaks has lived to fight another day.”
Nothing surprising about any of it.
The last person that gang has to worry about is President Obama, When Putin gets tired of their asses then they should start worrying. Putin don’t do finesse, Putin is a blunt tool who isn’t above making motherfuckers disappear after they’ve served their purpose.

Sorry TODers……a warning……there is Darth Vader, the Dick Cheney a nanosecond before Josh Earnest Starts the briefings…..My apologies…….
Did Josh kick ass?
I am listening now. I am being interrupted by people around me…..so my concentration is not 100%. The Video is playing in the background.
Thanks Nena. As always, Josh ‘The Voice’ Earnest was terrific today.
Josh “The Voice” Earnest…….Hmm? Ladyhawke I am not familiar with this nickname. Please tell me more. It sounds intriguing. Is Josh Earnest known as a singer?
I call him ‘The Voice’ (not sure if this nickname has caught on anywhere) because he narrates the West Wing Week video diaries so beautifully. I just think he has a wonderful speaking voice. There have been a few times when he was away and someone else had to fill in for him on WWW and it is just not the same. And of course, it is always a treat when he covers for Jay ‘Clark Kent’ Carney.
OK Ladyhawke, duly noted……”The Voice” it is from now on…….if I fail…..please, gently remind me

Latest Poll McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli by 7 points now……Very, very interesting.
Well, nena, I hope it’s at least 27 points by election day. The idea that anyone would support the truly radical, looney Cuccinelli is astonishing. I hope Clinton and other friends of McAuliffe campaign hard for him this fall.
Yay!! I know a lot of Dems don’t necessarily like McAuliffe (not sure why), but any Dem is better than the Cooch. I’ll weep for Virginians if they vote in that idiot. He’ll be just like the NC Repub Governor.
McAuliffe was a big supporter of HRC during her awful campaign for president, and his attitude towards then-Candidate Obama was not very pleasant — he was just as desperate as the rest of her campaign managers. Left a bad taste in my mouth towards the lot of them. Like you said– would rather have him in there than that awful-Cuccinelli.
On our cross country trip a couple of weeks ago, my mom and I saw a car, driven by a young man — perhaps in his early 20s with a Cuccinelli sticker — we BOTH said at the same time, “Cuccinellli, ewwww”. I have a feeling that young man doesn’t treat his women very well.
Pray Tell DC/NY Pundits……how come they are trying so desperately to connect Syria to Iraq? In 2011…..they were doing the same about Libya. Wow…….then media and the TBGOPers were all over the map about Libya. That after a couple of months…..the media were asking why was Gaddafi still in power, how come he was not captured? They termed it a failure. Here they go again…..the media and the TBGOPer……trying their very best to distort, misinform and attack all in one sentence?
Just like they tried to portray every natural disaster as “Obama’s Katrina”. Once again, the MSM is the communications arm of the GOP. Unfortunately the MSM only wants the country to rally around GOP presidents in time of war or conflict. Patriotism hibernates during Democratic Presidents’ time in office.
this is pretty funny, but it was unintentional and the USWeekly website is the one who put up the “honoring MLK” headline…lol

I’m putting this out there so that people know where I’m coming from. I don’t care WHO you are or who you say you are – if I see you undermining PBO on Twitter, by questioning his insight, intellect, wisdom, decision-making, etc, you will get push back from me. And yes when you attack his WH communications team, you are insulting him, because you are in effect saying that he doesn’t know how to select an appropriate PR team after being on the job for 5 years. Just as I don’t allow the MSM to lob gratuitous insults at him, I don’t appreciate when his so-called supporters feel they have a right to act as though they know infinitely better than him how to do his job.
I asked a couple folks to name one person who they feel could do a better job of communicating than his current team is right now. They couldn’t name a single person. My thing is, if you cannot be part of the solution, you are part of the problem. You don’t get to throw insults and attacks, while not being able to come up with a single constructive solution to what you perceive to be a problem and not get push-back. And no, demanding on Twitter that PBO just “gets angry at everyone” is not a constructive solution.
Right there with you, hf!
I agree, especially the condescending TONE…….Joining those who want to vent when angry, when having anxiety feelings or when there are News one might be having problems dealing with is a tad ugly and unproductive…….
In 5 yrs….the POTUS must be satisfied with his communication team. Call up the WH, but please do not join those who want Nothing good for this president when one is frustrated.
I agree 1001% with You, HF2.
Hopefruit, I agree with you 1000%! I am tired of all the keyboard Presidents who are always second guessing the President or trying to tell him what to do as if he were a childs. I do however appreciate people who take time to respectfully offer him constructive suggestions/solutions. On this issue of communications, what exactly can the President do when the mainstream national media either completely ignores what he says or grossly distorts what he says and does?
Yeah that’s my stance too
Amen!! You are so right!!!
Brava, hf!! Agree with you 100%.
The president is much more knowledgeable and has better instincts than just about anyone out there. They just want a reason to complain.
Congratulations, Director Jones!
Regarding the need for legislation to reduce gun violence, Vice President Biden said, today: “If Congress won’t act, we’ll fight for a new Congress.”

Great, it’s about time. Gotta love Joe. His comment about fighting for a new congress reminded me of the post below.
‘THEY DID NOTHING’
The Democrats’ three-word slogan for 2014
“They Did Nothing.” It’s that simple. The Republicans on the economy? “They did nothing.” On jobs? “They did nothing.” Rebuilding America’s crumbling roads and bridges to help businesses move their products? “They did nothing.” Immigration? “They did nothing.” Climate change? “They did nothing.” Bringing American jobs back home instead of shipping them overseas? “They did nothing.” Keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists and the mentally ill? “They did nothing.”* The list goes on and on. And to be clear, the Democrats must articulate their positive agenda. In fact, President Obama has taken to the road to do just that. Saying the Republicans did nothing only makes sense if Democrats clearly explain what solutions they stand for and on which the Republicans should work, with some compromise and cooperation by both sides. – See more at: http://messagingmatters.com/2013/08/02/the-democrats-three-word-slogan-for-2014/#sthash.NsBrRj4y.dpuf
Thanks JOB for sharing this. I love Joe Biden’s resolve about fighting for ” a new Congress” to deal with sensible gun regulations. I’ve said this before but I will say it again, VP Joe Biden is my #1 choice should he decide to run in 2016.
It’ll be me in that crowd with ya, nath! If he decides to run, I’m IN. And looks like I’ll be in good company!
Did you see the fun #: BidenObama2016 ? If only.
It was a total GOP “blackout” as it was, including the ONE AND ONLY AFRICAN AMERICA SENATOR in the GOP Tim Scott.
Drudge had been flagging this as Scott not being invited, then after it was confirmed that not only was he invited, but he declined and in fact chose to decline cause he was instead was gonna be in South Carolina.
Tim Scott Didn’t Speak At MLK Event Because He Declined Invitation To Attend
I’m glad that no GOP reps were at the 50th Anniversary. That makes perfect sense. They are hostile to Black people (except their Uncle Toms) and hate the President, who gave the keynote speech. Let Repubs stay in the wilderness with the T’Baggers, racists, sexists, homophobes and bigots. America is moving forward to fulfill The Dream without them.
however…we need a common sense caucus to emerge…It would have been interesting had any of the members of the GOP had the courage to come speak…
prettyfoot, you said “courage”, sadly the GOTP HAS no courage…they are complete and utter cowards and it is very sad that the American public continues to elect and allow these individuals to subvert our government and president.
It would be ironic for GOP to show up at a celebration for the March on Washington when they represent EVERYTHING the marchers marched against, so I’m glad they stayed away.

On my way to dr. appt. this afternoon, I heard a caller (female) to Ed’s program. The sum up: She voted for PO twice, BUT–can you tell what’s coming???–she is SO disappointed in him…….doesn’t believe/trust him…….she is sick of wars and GMO and blah blah blah blah……she listens to Democracy Now all the time…..wanted Ed to find the video of Wes Clark (whom she ‘loves’) from 1991. He talks about going into a meeting at the Pentagon with Rumsfield & Wolfowitz telling him (and showing him plans) that the end game is to invade Iran. There was a list of 6-8 countries but Iran was to be the crowning jewel and the last one. She firmly believes PO is part of this plan. Gee whiz! You really can’t fix stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thing is: I watched that video couple nights ago. It was on my FB page. The video sure didn’t set my hair on fire.
As I said, stupid!
Both Ed “Don’t Vote During the 2010 Midterms” Schultz and that “caller” are probably Republican plants.
