I was leaving you a message and I ended up here, but I know you’re really happy for me : ) …..Right?
I’m thrilled for you! You are totally deserving!!!!!
Thank you 57andfemale!
Yes it is Cindy. Hey TOD. What’s up?
Hi Mariele Rennie-Mambu,
Thank you for confirmation : )
Hope you are having a great day!
Duuuuuude. The video is private.
When you love someone, and or just care about someone, and they move on without a word; their privacy is respected but our hearts are burdened because we haven’t heard.
Reasons I enjoy the TOD family; Chipsticks, UT, LL and others present the news with truths and facts. However, you take time out to enjoy good music; create a good laugh, and the human side of the TOD family that cares causes you to worry.
Because of that, unapologetically I say, we’re waiting for you Dudette, please come back to your TOD family in a hurry.
Maybe it’s just me but Christie has lost the gleam in his eyes that he used to have. He doesn’t talk with the same emotion that he used to; his energy seems to have left him. He avoids looking people in the eye like he used to. Poor fella, he almost made it out of Jersey.
Well, let’s urge him to continue trying to make it out of NJ …. preferably to a Federal Prison …
Resign @GovChristie You've done more than enough damage to the people of NJ talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/rocke… cc @SenatorBuono @SenatorLorettaW— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) January 16, 2014
Yes We Can
All an Act when One is found Not to be as Good as He/She was led to believe.
Christie knew and knows that he was telling Tales. He is surprised that so many do care to know more about his abuse of POWER.
He is scared as S _ _ _ _.
It’s sometimes called ‘Guilt’.
Don, I think Christie fed on hurting and bullying people like it was red meat and now that he’s under “observation” and has to curtail his nasty streak, he’s feeling the strain. If he had focused on actually helping people–creating jobs, improving education, fixing the state’s infrastructure, ‘helping,’ rather than hindering, people from getting health insurance and embracing Medicaid expansion, he could be riding high right now. Some commenter on The People’s View summed it up nicely, “Christie is a putz.” It wasn’t a compliment.
This is fun stuff. Find out what city you should actually live in.
I am supposed to live in my favorite city–Paris!
Oh, MomSense, I got Paris, too. Shall we meet there? In the Spring at a cafe on the Champs D’Elysee? How’s your French?
Tres bien! Yes, let’s meet this Spring and we can go to my favorite pastry places on Rue St. Catherine!!
This was cute. Thanks, UT.
I should be living in Paris…I went there for my 50th birthday (8 years ago) and I’m itching to get back there
Jay Is LIVE already ;)
Okay then. I could not listen to it today for my time today is not permitting me to listen to his presser.
Actually I listen to Jay’s pressers in the evening when I get home from work and after I’ve had a chance to eat and decompress, its almost the highlight of my day after spending time with my wife and kid.
Members of Congress Introduce New Fix for Voting Rights Act
By Ari Berman
The bill is certain to have its critics, including on the left. Voting rights supporters will argue, justifiably, that the new Section 4 formula does not apply to enough states and wrongly treats voter ID laws differently than other discriminatory voting changes. Despite these flaws, the legislation represents a significant improvement over the disastrous post-Shelby status quo, which has seen states like North Carolina and Texas rush to pass blatantly discriminatory voting restrictions after being freed from federal oversight. The legislation strengthens voting rights protections in a number of tangible ways and gives the federal government and voting rights advocates new tools to combat voting discrimination.
But now that there’s legislation on the table, members of Congress face a choice: do you want to make it easier or harder for people to vote? The question, and answer, is really that simple.
This is disgusting. Slavery was fun for Black people because white people offered them a richer and more prosperous way of life. The whitewashing of America’s ugly history is incredible.
This is what are kids are being taught.. Slavery offered a better way of life for Africans..#corecurriculum #smdh http://t.co/IYrG2SptF6— Davey D (@mrdaveyd) January 16, 2014
Totally misreading the question.
How is he misreading the question? This has been an ongoing battle between educators and others who want to whitewash the history of America by providing textbooks and core curriculum that teaches students a false history of the United States.
Is it okay to ask, did the holocaust offer Jews a better way of life and a share of the prosperity?
Is it okay to ask, did 9/11 offer Muslims a better way of life and a share of the prosperity?
Is it okay to ask, did internment offer Japanese-Americans a better way of life and a share of the prosperity?
So, they want some students to write that yes, slavery was hilarious and so much fun for Black people. Yes, white people used slavery to offer Black people a better way of life and a share of the prosperity. Yes, it’s wonderful when you enslave, torture, and kill human beings because you hate the color of their skin. That’s just the American way.
The underlying point is that the premise of the question is offensive; especially in light of recent events in the news about how how some school boards are dumbing down education.
Oakland USD should read “King Leopold’s Ghost”, about the Belgian rule over the Congo, and then see if it would ask that same question.
Exactly, LL. This is nothing new but the brazenness of the question had my jaw dropping. There’ve been movements across the country to whitewash the history of America in terms of slavery, internment, treatment of Native Americans, war, etc. It’s horrible. They’re using covert tactics and faux concern to try and dumb down education.
People should be taught the proper history of their country so that we don’t repeat the evils and ills of the past and also, so that we progress forward as one.
When I was educated in a one room country school most of history was whitewashed. I think I was in fourth grade before anyone in SD was taught algebra and we thought we were going to learn the metric system but for some reason that went away. Just when schools got better something changed and whoever runs things doesn’t like it. They want the truth hidden again. Hopefully we can continue moving forward. The question is stupid.
UT, this is obscene. What state is this? Even if you interpret the question to mean “imperialism” in the sense of invading, taking over and running someone else’s country, rather than slavery, it’s still stupid and outrageous. I’d like to ask an African whose country was “run” by the British, French, Dutch or Germans how much ‘shared prosperity’ they got out of it. Imperialism in any form was, is and ever shall be vile.
The article I was checking the title of in my last post which ended up on the last thread is called The Dark Side of Dubai in the Independent. I had mentioned my son’s MBA class just back from a trip there. I had mentioned the article. I should also mention if you know of anyone planning to go work there they should read this article as my son’s class observed some of these things and worse. It reminded me of the GOP ideology having come to fruition with all of the negative impacts involved.
This actually fit in nicely under the slavery topic since a lot of the article involved modern day slavery in Dubai. They lure in people to work there telling of great wages. They take their passports upon arrival. They are required to work a number of years to earn back the fee they needed to get the job. The hours are long with no time off and if they get in debt they go to jail.
If I recall, there recently was a case of a French national who played football in the UAE. As with all foreign workers, he was at the mercy of his employer. His team stopped paying him, he sued, and then the team didn’t let him leave the country. Took him months and the intervention of the French govt to get out.
I’ve heard an antidote of one person in the travel industry in SD experiencing something similar. I had no names or even a town, so there was no way to check it out. The person was from a county in Central or South America.

The media and the TBGOPers are mercilessly destroying US. Dems Need to speak, scream, shout and then Win more elections to change this dysfunction.
Nena, I just came back from a meeting of local Dems and Progressives on the whole issue of “speaking out” and we all agreed that it starts with us because we can actually Do something about it. We decided that we would put together the kinds of messages we want to push–actually create talking points that would apply to all Democratics at any level and then stick to them. We would hand them out at events, send them to newly registered Dems, post them at our booths at fairs and echo them in our LTEs. In other words, actually “model” what we want our candidates to do. That’s going to be our project and I’m anxious to see how it works.
Great news Jakiegrumbacher. Since the MSM is no longer reporting accurately and since Dems have No Real Liberal Media Echo Chamber, the messaging has Got to improve.
Thank you. Thank You.

UT, this is a brilliant summary. Do you know where the list of the 100 colleges and universities can be found? One thing I hope is part of the discussion is the cultural orientation that is so vital for kids from lower income backgrounds who transition to colleges. It’s tough for many students to feel comfortable and accepted in a college environment. The so called ‘elite’ schools can be especially unmerciful this way. Many, many moons ago, I won a full scholarship to a super elite liberal arts college and I can tell you that the disorientation–the sense of not belonging–is real. It takes a lot of good on campus mentors and wise advisers to help students to adjust.
Thanks for the real life experience, Jackie. I don’t yet know if the white house has uploaded the list, but if the white house’s Twitter or blog does so, I’ll alert you.

You’ve Got to LOVE VP Biden, Lovable Joe
Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday thanked the executive chairman of Ford Motor Co. for “saving our ass,” according to a pool report.
Biden was touring the American International Auto Show in Detroit with Ford executive chairman Bill Ford Jr. and Rep John Dingell (D-MI). The pool reporter couldn’t make out Ford’s response.
Wolf Blizter used to work for AIPAC……
I think he still does……he is going overboard in support of new Sanctions on Iran.
Sen Feinstein…..For the 1st time in years I say: Thank you.
She called out those Marching To War. She said on the floor of the senate Yesterday…..that Israel Can Not dictate to US when she goes to War.
That was The Truth. I applaud her. I am still searching for a clip.
I can Only Post a YouTube video at TOD.
Nena, thank you so much for posting this video. Senator Feinstein is amazing. She is making it plain. Everyone needs to listen to this floor speech. It just makes sense.
“And let me acknowledge Israel’s real well founded concerns, that a nuclear-armed Iran would threaten its very existence. I don’t disagree with that. I agree with it, but we’re not there yet. While I recognize and share Israel’s concern, we cannot let Israel determine when and where the United States goes to war. By stating that the United States should provide military support to Israel in a former resolution should it attack Iran, I fear that is how this bill is going to be interpreted.”
Sen Feinstein’s quote from yesterday.
The Iran Vote: This Really Matters, and You Should Let Your Senators Know
By James Fallows
If the nuclear deal is going to fail, let that happen at the negotiating table—and not be engineered under the Capitol dome.
Thank you indeed Senator Feinstein, for blocking this attempt to force the president’s hand on Iran. We ALL know what would be Netanyahu’s next move if that bill passed.
Good for Diane Feinstein. She doesn’t always get it right, but when she does, she nails it. How can anyone “want” war? It’s insanity.

.@AriBerman is reporting some details of the new VRA: thenation.com/blog/177962/me…— John Gramlich (@johngramlich) January 16, 2014
The legislation draws a new coverage formula for Section 4, thereby resurrecting Section 5. States with five violations of federal law to their voting changes over the past fifteen years will have to submit future election changes for federal approval. This new formula would currently apply to Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Local jurisdictions would be covered if they commit three or more violations or have one violation and “persistent, extremely low minority turnout” over the past fifteen years. The formula is based on a rolling calendar, updated with a current fifteen-year time period to exempt states who are no longer discriminating or add new ones who are, creating a deterrent against future voting rights violations. It’s based on empirical conditions and current data, not geography or a fixed time period—which voting rights advocates hope will satisfy Chief Justice John Roberts should the new legislation be enacted and reach the Supreme Court.
The new Section 4 proposal is far from perfect. It does not apply to states with an extensive record of voting discrimination, like Alabama (where civil rights protests in Selma gave birth to the VRA), Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, which were previously subject to Section 5. Nor does it apply to states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin that have enacted new voting restrictions in the past few years. Moreover, rulings against voter ID laws—like in Texas in 2012—will not count as a new violation. Voter ID laws can still be blocked by the Department of Justice or federal courts in the new states covered under Section 4, but that will not be included as one of the five violations needed to keep the state covered. This exemption for voter ID laws was written to win the support of House majority leader Eric Cantor and other Republicans.
I’m not exactly doing cartwheels over this legislation, based on this report.
Well, I have been waiting for voting rights legislation, but I certainly wasn’t waiting for this bullshit!
Thank you! I thought it was just me! What, again, did Republicans actually give up?!?!
My guess, 57 is they simply want to be able to claim they did something to protect voting rights, when this crap obviously does nothing to advance anything. Why Democrats latch onto this kind of insulting, hypocritical crap is beyond me. They are giving Republicans a tremendous advantage…once again.
It’s show, it’s not addressing a huge, dangerous issue to this country. I’m sick of this from Dems. And they call me, asking for money, at least 10 times/week. Then they can do their damn jobs. Scream from the rooftops about this travesty, support PBO, support ACA, support diplomacy as one voice. Act more like Republicans: show some righteous outrage and look like you’re pulling together for the common good.

UT!! OMG that survey is hilarious! I felt like I was contradicting myself with every answer but maybe I’m just a bundle of contradictions naturally. Because….I’m moving to Paris in 2017 and guess what city the survey said I should live in?!?!? Yup! PARIS!!!!! :) :) :) Damn, that just seems to perfect, huh? What did everyone else get?
Holy smokes! I got Paris too. :lol:
Then I played around with it and got Portland too.
I’m quite stoked about my options because like Austin, Portland has great food, great music vibe, great literary vibe, scenery, diverse people.
I’m pretty pissed off that I got Portland.
Why? Portland has great food, great music, art, literary adventures, diverse groups of people.
Weather wise, could be iffy but otherwise, seems a good option?
Oh, I love visiting Portland. But, much to my chagrin, I’m an Angeleno thru and thru. BUT, if I do manage to sell my novel for a bucketload of money, I’ll be blogging from London for part of the EPL season.
The 15 year old daughter of a good friend told me that she was looking into the University of Portland(?). I asked her why. She said she wanted to live where it was easy to be liberal and where people cared about the environment.
There is hope for the next generation. A lot of hope.
Oh that’s interesting. Well I can see some similarities in Portland and Paris with liberal views. I wonder how many cities they have in it.
UT, MomSense and I also got Paris. We’re all going to have a great time living there–shall we band together and create a TOD a Paris?
I’m right there along with you, Jackie! :D
I also got Paris. Perhaps we should form a TOD enclave, oui?

I got Paris too. Maybe there’s enough TOD people for a tour? Well… I love croissants and French food, always have wanted to go to a French restaurant, visit Versailles and walk the around the Eiffel Tower. Is that French enough?

Paris. Yes, I could imagine myself there…

Christie lawyers up – who gets that bill?
Randy Mastro (bio) will head up the legal team. He was chief of staff and deputy mayor when Guiliani ran the city on the other side of the GWB. Guiliani is one of the few Republicans on record backing Christie through this scandal. Among prominent clients Mastro has represented is Home Depot. Ken Langone, the company’s billionaire co-founder, will host a private gathering for Christie on Sunday in Florida – Christie’s first test of scandal-era GOP loyalty. It was also Langone who convened a meeting of GOP bigs to sell Christie on a 2012 White House run (that convo included David Koch and Henry Kissinger).
Update : Randy Mastro specialty is ” organized crime “
I like how stories are geographically representing where Christie’s allies are, using the very same ” … on the other side of the GWB … ” that got him into the fix he created and is stuck in, now. Ha ha.
Does Congress really believe that if they sit with a member of the other party during the State of the Union again that we will fall for it ?

Liberals are so clevah. Conservatives are goin’ DOWN!
Food stamp recipients will have their grocery store humiliation compounded by having to show a photo ID in order to buy food if Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) gets his way.
Under a bill Vitter introduced Wednesday, beneficiaries of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) would be denied their food if they are unable to show a photographic identification card at the register. For millions of low-income Americans who don’t have an official photo ID and can’t necessarily afford to buy one, Vitter’s bill would mean being cut off from their primary food source.
No wonder so many call him a #loser on twitter.
One word: MEAN.
Won’t pass. Won’t get anywhere.
Senator “Diaper” wants to keep distracting away from his pervert behavior.
Though Vitter might succeed with his latest bill, just know that he has one more grand failure ahead. Like many men before him; he insists on digging just one grave.
