        These Images reminds of a poem by Langston Hughes…

        I, Too sing America…

        I am the darker brother.
        They send me to eat in the kitchen
        When company comes,
        But I laugh,
        And eat well,
        And grow strong.

        I’ll be at the table
        When company comes.
        Nobody’ll dare
        Say to me,
        “Eat in the kitchen,”

        They’ll see how beautiful I am
        And be ashamed–

        I, too, am America.

        Langston Hughes :

        I am also reminded how the Armed forces were segrated…
        and how Black Soldiers were treated on their return from the war…

      NW, thanks for bringing these over and adding new ones.

      I’m at work now and can view them better. I’ll have to wait till I get home to listen to the President, but these pictures and tweets are holding me over.

      You, Chips and JER have done a marvelous job this morning and I deeply thank you ❤

    Haven’t had time to peruise the earlier threads, but looks like those five Taliban released are not quite the threat they are painted out to be:

    The backgrounds of the prisoners, who are confined to the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar for one year under the terms of the exchange, indicate that they would have little utility on the battlefield after more than a decade in prison. They range in age from 43 to 47. In their absences, the Taliban movement they served has evolved into a complex and extremely violent insurgency that routinely kills civilians and has been decimated — although far from defeated — by years of U.S. counter-terrorism operations.

    Their primary value, say analysts, is as a symbol of the Taliban’s ability to negotiate on equal footing with the United States. As the Obama administration prepares for the withdrawal of most U.S. forces from Afghanistan by the end of the year, the exchange has raised questions about whether Taliban leaders will seek a negotiated peace with the Afghan government or wait out the departure of virtually all American troops by 2016.

    “It’s a boost in terms of morale, but I doubt whether this would make any kind of practical impact, at least in the short term, to the conflict inside Afghanistan,” said Alex Strick van Linschoten, who has co-written three books on the Taliban. “All these guys are pretty old now.”


    If this was posted earler my apologies.

    But looks like only one of them might be considered hard core.

        I notice that again too. He always looks like he’s enjoying the moment and always the one who is looking out for others, helping them up, helping them down, trying to make everyone comfortable, engaging with each——decency and integrity to the core.

    My POTUS has such an elegance in his steps. He received the most applauses. Putin’s face shows all the jealousy one little man can have for a great man.

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Two blasts struck a convoy carrying Afghan presidential hopeful Abdullah Abdullah after a campaign event Friday in Kabul, killing six civilians but leaving the candidate himself unharmed, officials said.

    The attack came just over a week before a runoff vote is to be held as Afghans choose a new leader to replace President Hamid Karzai. The Taliban have vowed to disrupt the balloting, although the first round on April 5 was relatively peaceful. Friday’s attack was the first to directly target one of the candidates in Kabul.

    Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said the violence started with a suicide bombing followed by a roadside bomb. He said nobody in Abdullah’s entourage was killed. The ministry later issued a statement saying six civilians were killed and 22 were wounded.

    Thank you, TODville, for all the posts on this historic occasion.

    Can’t get the livestream to play right now, and have to sign off now.

    Just logged in to share—watching C-SPAN and the arrivals to ceremony. Each dignitary received a smattering of polite applause And then President Obama stepped out of his vehicle and the roar was astounding. The applause followed him on his way and swelled louder and louder even as he reached his place. The President was gracious and smiling,of course.
    I fell apart soaking the tissues I had handy.
    All I could think is that this extraordienary Leader is a light that all the world can see and shares with us here at TOD.
    The Nobel committee sure knew what they were doing, dont you think?

      Putin being put into the “naughty corner” by leading western nations. As Pres Obama stated, Putin “has a chance to get back into the lane of international law”. What a contrast between being a recognized leader of a large group of nations, and the delusions of leadership.

    Since Obamacare was passed 50 months ago, health care has gained almost 1 million jobs.

    (982,300, to be more specific.)

    Once in a while, the expectations for the new jobs report and the actual data line up remarkably well.

    The new report from Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the U.S. economy added 217,000 jobs in May, which is almost exactly what economists expected. The overall unemployment rate, meanwhile, remained at 6.3% – still at its lowest point since September 2008, nearly six years ago.

    For the fourth consecutive month, public-sector layoffs did not drag down the overall employment figures. Though jobs reports over the last few years have shown monthly government job losses, in May, the private sector added 216,000 while the public sector added 1,000. The latter is obviously tiny, but after several years in which that total was negative, it’s at least somewhat heartening.

    If Putin hadn’t tried to annex the Ukraine, he could have been a central part of this event. Russia suffered massively in WWII and the landings were what they needed for relief on the Eastern front.

    It is sad that when PBO is winding down the wars of GWB, there is a falling out with Russia. I don’t think Putin’s reception by the leaders bodes well for what he may do next. He is not a man to think and evaluate as does PBO. I hope I am wrong. Maybe Putin is by nature a loner.

    I wonder if Putin thought that Snowden was a much bigger prize than he has turned out to be. Did he think he could walk into the Ukraine because Snowden would provide information that would severely hurt the western powers?

      TPM just quote what other people say – why journalism is dying – and this was the WHPC – surprise – but they did add at the end – what I had read elsewhere

      “It turns out the the President and Putin did speak on the sidelines of the luncheon, however. Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said the two spoke informally for about 10 to 15 minutes, according to a later pool report. ”

      So the pundits travel around the world to report on the President – and, of course, they get it wrong – why do they still have jobs.

        Putin is a small man. Small mind, small heart. He is jealous of Barack Obama but may not realize it. Barack Obama is everything he wishes he were: respected by world leaders, popular around the whole world, at the helm of a powerful and influential country, and on top of it… tall, good-looking and charismatic !!

    The only reason why this economy isn’t at full strength is bc of all the govt jobs that red state governors cut during recession.

      And Congress repeatedly blocked every bill that could have created jobs. Had Congress stayed completely democrat in 2010, the recovery would have been much stronger.

      • 73 carolyn
        June 6, 2014 at 11:25 am

        This 70th anniversary is very important, because this is the last one when a number of veterans from that day will be present, and I am SO glad that our PBO is the American president in office to make this wonderful commemoration and speech. By the 75th, very few vets will be alive or able to make the celebration. Also, Queen Elizabeth who participated and helped in the war is still alive; quite a historic day.

        She sure does love PBO doesn’t she!!! Someone commented that PBO assumes the same posture her husband does when talking with her……how else are they going to get their heads close enough to talk with her….she is VERY short, about 5’2″ I think.

          President Obama always uses the most appropriate posture with whomever he is with. He squats down or bends over with children or elders to be at their eye level. He is respectful with all unlike what the GOP say about him.

      It says that some people can change their opinion of somebody. Unless, of course, you are a Republican; then your opinion can never change. In fact, it only can harden.

    • June 6, 2014 at 11:31 am

      You know, I was wondering about this the other day when I say them together. I thought Walesa had snubbed POTUS previously and said harsh things about him. How absolutely wonderful to see this change of heart.

      Music to my heart and to my ears. The minute people meet Barack Obama in person, they just see what kind of man he is. If they have a open heart and a functioning brain, they just GET it.

    • 84 Lovepolitics2008
      June 6, 2014 at 12:00 pm

      I think the words of Mr. Walesa will move President Obama. He is been judged so unfairly by so many… no matter how he tries to take that with a grain of salt, he is a human being. ANd he must have some admiration for Mr. Walesa, who so courageously fought for democracy in his country.
