The times sure are a-changing.
It’s absolutely amazing how crazy the GOP has become.
With these amazing photos in my head, I’ll log off for the night – and before HF2 can say ‘don’t let muvvapeeryan bite’. Some days it’s all just too much. God Bless our President and First Lady, I don’t know how they do it. Nite y’all!
sweet dreams MP
G’night Pamela! Sleep tight!
Agree MP, God Bless our President and First Lady and their family.
sleep well MPamela
A very ‘Good Night’ to you my dear. Rest well, physically and mentally!

No offense to Audrey and Eleroy, but This.Is.Seriously.Naughty.Mat.Quality.
You are BAD!!
Although some of us have graduated to naughty carpets.
Indeed…Starting with Lady D herself….
Uh huh, that’s me! No shame in my game!
Dudette, you’ve been takin’ a magic naughty carpet ride for days! (Maybe longer – who’s counting?)
Waaaaay longer than that!
I’ve been living in the Naughty House for at least a year now… Renting rooms by the hour.
Do you sublet? Asking for a friend.
Of course – we even take in strays on occasion, as the need arises.
” … take in strays” >>>> Me, too!

What is that???? An antelope??
Somebody needs a good wax and a manicure!
That so reminds me of that image where somebody’s telling somebody (paraphrased), “No, I won’t be attending your dog’s wedding. Freak. It’s my cat’s birthday party.” But that’s just me.
“No, I won’t be attending your dog’s wedding, you freak. It’s my cat’s birthday party that day.” #AnimalLovers. smh— (@amk4obama) September 22, 2013
Ha! Thought it might have been you who posted it, originally.
Oh, okay, I thought you had the image, but, hey.
Talking to self on previous thread – my signature style – sigh
Ever the stylish one 99ts!
LOL – indeed – but nowhere near the style of Potus and Flotus – capital Style for your first couple
I was actually there with you talking to myself.I would have loved to connect with you so that I didn’t have to feel like like such an idijt.
I did belatedly answer your comment I think – so we nearly made it together
Is the CBC speech going to be posted here. I sure hope so.
I’ll look for it in the am. G’night everyone.
Of course it will, as soon as it turns up, Eve. Night.
oh boy. Yawnnnn. Soooo tiiirrrred-

You are a disgrace
Come on, give him a little credit. His artwork is better than yours – the wife has hair.
Maybe, I should have said ‘well-groomed’ hair?
As a friend have to say, the truth does hurt at times. This should help while I head off to bed.

You can NOT shame me.
Huh, I figured that out a long time ago
I have to say my friend Chips speaks for me on this one.
Now, suddenly she is your friend ???
When I agree with her – Sure!
Chips, it’s always nice sharing these events with you & the family.
Going already, sleepyhead?

The President told those crazy ass Republicans that he was not going to give up, he was going to fight and I love it.
Thanks to #Obamacare costs for #Medicaid and #Medicare are dropping. But you wouldn't report this @ChuckTodd usatoday.com/story/news/nat…— Bill R (@cmpnwtr) September 22, 2013
Anybody who’s still reminding Chuckie of his little faux pas on a daily basis is a hero in my book! Thanks, Bill.
Wow…that is a very niceeeeee pic of PBO!
I am realizing I am still irritated about an incident that happened Friday at lunch with two friends of mine. The husband of my friend started complaining about “Our dang President Obama” He went on about a decision not to let logging go on on Federal lands in Oregon. He has been the head of our tribal timber committee for many years and very concerned with good practices for the environment, but he hates environmental extremists. I said I am very supportive of this president, but my anti-government brother who was there kept the conversation going. My brother is a long time Ron Paul supporter. I cannot talk politics to my brother at all. So I inserted that PBO just appointed a Hopi to the Federal Court in AZ. My other friend said ” Don’t try to make him look good since I am supporting my husband on this.” I quickly just changed the subject very disappointed in their attitude. It set a light bulb off in my head on how people can get fixated on their one pet belief and judge everything based on that. It is like not seeing the forest for the trees. Had to use that line since it involves trees.
I so understand what you are saying. I have a cousin on Facebook that post horrid things about the President. I have finally written him a letter and will be unfriending him. It is hard to deal with friends and family. Especially when they don’t deal in facts. I think things will be changing. I feel people are at the end of their patience. We must find a way to speak up to stand our ground. Good luck in dealing with your family and friends. It isn’t easy. That’s why this community is so important.
I guess there is no answer, OG. At least you tried! We just have to keep plowing through it, moving forward.
As meta reminded me a while back: There is an endless supply of paint. Remember this story?
I don’t have much patience for dumb stuff, so me and my anti-Obama friends and family go at it. They always get steamed…I have a ball telling them about the Obama greatness. It can be really tough and disappointing, but I live with the belief that you have to keep an eye on your friends and a 45 on your family… so it’s all good.
I don’t really hang with anti-Obama people (Ha!), but occasionally will run into them. For instance, when I moved to Central Illinois where my son lives, he told me a friend of his “warned” her whole family in advance not to say anything to me about President Obama, when we ran into each other. Needless to say, I made no “new friends” among that crowd of people!
Whoa! Great picture of PBO!
GE TODers……. have you guys quit drooling yet? Asking for a friend My Auburn Tigers lost 35-21 to LSU, but I am proud of the fight they put up. About to watch John “Bones” Jones defend his UFC title momentarily. I ask that everyone root for my Colts v.s S.F. tomorrow…. could get ugly. Carpe Diem!!!
A fiery Obama at CBC says he refuses to negotiate over #Obamacare funding & renews push for gun control washingtonpost.com/politics/at-co…— Philip Rucker (@PhilipRucker) September 22, 2013
hang in there, the Tigers will be fine – still early.
got embarrassed by the damage my Buckeyes did to FAMU – this should not be permitted.
lots of drunk people moving around Buckeye Nation today
Guyton is a beast……. If I were Urban, I would run w/ him regardless if Braxton Miller is healthy. Reminds me of Alex Smith for the 49ers getting a concussion, and Kaepernick taking over for the rest of the season.
A lot of damage was done this weekend to some teams that shouldn’t have even been on the field. Miami, who played their backup QB from the firstQ on…….. was up 77-7 after three quarters. The coaches agreed to shorten the 4th quarter to 12minutes out of mercy? Baylor posted 70 also.
Alrighty-then! It’s time for this good ‘little girl’ to go to bed. Sweet dreams, TODobots and company!

OLD!!! Bite yer tongue! I may be a bit “seasoned” (flavor added for extra pleasure), but old? NEVAH!
My kinda mood tonite.
Those are my BOYZ right there!
Ah yes… remembering some things I did to their music back in school
TMI. It sounds like some naughty mat action is brewing, eh?
Just a flash of old memories… just a flash!

So heartwarming to see Sybrina Fulton there!
thanks a lot for this photo – Ms Fulton did not show in the prior copy (may be I just missed her
Hay Trayvon you Mom just met the President of the United States.
Sorry the one didn’t play well for you.

Aaand I am outta here.
This isn’t a verified account, but it appears legit:
My aim is to rescue as many innocent hostages in a professional manner to save them. Be calm. We have contained the gunmen. IG— David Kimaiyo (@IGkimaiyo) September 22, 2013
Video and pictures on AJAM are harrowing. I had to switch channels.
I know exactly what you mean. I had just visited the Embassy in Nairobi two days before the bombing in 1998. This just leaves me breathless. I can’t bear to look at it or read about it. It’s so very sad.
Well if we’re bustin’ out the jazz guitar greats, gotta pull out Wes Montgomery
It is with heavy heart I report that my mentor was killed in the Nairobi terrorist attack. Here’s the report in Ghanaian news. The picture in the linked report was taken when he attended my hubby’s father’s funeral in February this year. Sad sad day for us all. He was a renowned poet, former Ambassador to the UN, professor and wonderful wonderful man. May he rest in peace
Thank you all for your words of encouragement.
Oh Zizi, I’m so terribly sorry for your loss! May he rest in peace.
Sorry for your sad loss Zizi. Prayers for you and all those who loved and knew him.
deepest condolence on such a loss! my he rest in peace and may you and his family and friends find some comfort.
had hoped that things would turn out otherwise.
was just thinking about you when you posted this update.
your silence the last hour made me suspect that this would be the news you reporting.
very sorry about the loss of someone so dear
Sorry for your loss, zizi. It’s horrific.
My condolences, Zizi. Such sad news.
Oh Zizi what a lose. Prayers for you his family and all those affected by this horrid tragedy.
I’m so incredibly sorry, Zizi. My heart goes out to you. I found this lecture I believe of him? I don’t know….. really saddened for your loss.
Yes that’s him. Brings back memories
I found a few more videos of him fighting corruption, and opening a space/tech center
35 minute mark
Science and Technology Center 2 minute mark
Zizi, you probably won’t see my comment as it must be very late in your timezones. First, my heart goes out to you and your family and Professor Kofi Awoonor’s family. I also deeply feel, from the little I know of his works, that Ghana, Africa, and the world have lost a brilliant teacher, a man of peace and an ethical model of what it means to be truly invested in bringing about the well being of all the people. The fact that he was your mentor is proof enough for me of what a wonderful teacher he was.
May you and your family find strength to cope with this senseless loss of a great man! Remember, you are not alone! Some of us who did not know the Professor as intimately as you did, but still appreciated his works, are equally devastated about his loss.
Again, Zizi, my deepest condolences!
No words…just heartfelt sympathy and hugs.
Thank you LovelyPlains for sharing this. I now remember him! My heart goes out to Zizi and Professor Awoonor’s family for the loss of a brilliant teacher a dear loved member of the family. I am, tonight, also thinking of his son who was shot and injured. I pray he is recovering and will be able to travel to Ghana to say goodbye to his great father. As a result of this terrorist act in Nairobi, Kenya, Africa and the world, and not just Ghana, lost one of the most important teachers, diplomats, and ethical voices! I am truly devastated! At the same time, I am immensely grateful that Professor/ Ambassador Kofi Awoonor mentored Zizi who is, without a doubt, a first rate teacher/ intellect still bringing enlightenment to her students and to all of us here at TOD.
I was terribly saddened by the news, Nath. I could not eloquently put into words my thoughts as you so succinctly did above and below. I thought trying to find some video and articles describing his contribution would be nice for Zizi, and the TOD community. I also found this wonderful encyclopedia website with all his contributions. http://de.cyclopaedia.net/wiki/Kofi-Awoonor#pics I hope both you and Zizi, get a chance to browse it. It has a lot of his contributions methodically gathered for retrieval.
May he rest in peace, zizi. I hope your memories of him and all you shared help you through this sad time.
I’m so sorry that your mentor was killed in the Nairobi terrorist attack. My deepest condolences to you and your family and the people in Nairobi.
Zizi, I am terribly saddened by the news of the loss of your mentor! May you and your family and the family of your mentor find the strength to cope! Words really fail that can convey the sadness that I, and I am sure many at TOD, feel about this senseless loss of life of innocent people. Even as you mourn the loss of your mentor, please take some time to rejoice about all the good he did when he was alive, including mentoring you, writing beautiful poems, teaching all the students who went on to serve your country and humanity, and serving your country as a diplomat at the UN. Just so you know, Zizi, your country, Ghana, holds such a special place in the history of Africa and the history of all African peoples in the diaspora. I can not convey the immense pride I felt when Dr. Kofi Anan became the Secretary General of the United States.
May your mentor Rest in Peace! May his good deeds be forever remembered! And may he forever join many of your brilliant ancestors and continue to inspire brilliant minds like you!
What a beautiful tribute that reached far and wide, nath, and how kind of you to write that for zizi.
Goodnight, TOD. See y’all tomorrow.
Thank you JOB! I really took the news of Zizi’s loss very hard because I was really hopping for the opposite!
Yes, we all were, on Zizi’s behalf. So tragic.
Of course, Zizi, I meant to say Secretary General of the United Nations in reference to Dr. Anan! I was so distraught by the news of your loss. I was still hoping for a miracle and I took your announcement so hard.
so sorry for you, zizi.. prayers to his family and all the families who have suffered loss today.
So sorry zizi. If there is any tribute to a good life well lived it has to be that someone would describe a person as their mentor. This person has lived a good life and no one, no violent act, can take that away.
So sorry for your loss….
Crushing news zizi …. no words … just wish I could be at your side and comfort you ….
Dear #PBO among those AQ slaughtered in Nairobi is Prof Awoonor, a mentor to our wonderful @zizi. Please honor him. cc @VP @vj44 @JohnKerry— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 22, 2013
Zizi – I have just come home (6pm in my world) – so very sorry to hear your news – may he be ever remembered with love & pride for how he lived and what he did.
My sympathy, Zizi2. Sorry for your lost. A tragedy.
oh dear Zizi. So sorry.
I was catching up on the posts from last night and saw the sad news. My condolences to you and to your mentor’s family.
So, so sorry Zizi, there just are no words for this madness.
Zizi, I’m so terribly sorry for your loss!
May he rest in peace.
So sorry Zizi2. So very sorry.
My deepest sympathy and my warmest thoughts for you and your Mentor’s family.
So very sorry.
Oh Zizi, I am so deeply sorry for your loss~ truly saddened for you, for him and for his family.
Very sorry for your loss zizi. I heard about his death on twitter. didn’t know you knew him.

Will post again sometime tomorrow because it’s the middle of the night for many wonderful TODers but Friday at the Ford factory and Saturday at the CBC could not provide a clearer vantage regarding how our magnificent President Obama is going to deal with #GOP domestic terrorists.
