    I’m really proud of Jamie Foxx. He didn’t have to come out of his home to check on and then rescue that guy, but, he did.

      Any idea why over 40 democrats voted for it in the house – despite it would be vetoed? Do they ever support the President and their own party – or are they wimps to the media?

      Kinda like Trump is doing to GOP. Let’s hope Bernie doesn’t end up screwing up the Dem party.

        In my opinion Debbie Wasserman-Shultz already did that. I am so disgusted on the handling of this election and the coronation of she who shall not be named. I think that is a common feeling by many.

        My daughter said she has the feeling from all of the Sanders supporters she knows that they are somewhat equivalent to the Tea Party on the right.

    Every single time I listen to the President, I get that same warm and fuzzy feeling. We know we’re hearing a kind, sane, ultra-intelligent, innovative, mesmerizing voice of hope and change – and progress – every damn time he talks! Love the man.

      This morning I heard Bill Press pimping his new book about PBO called “Buyer’s Remorse ……. I cannot believe these so-called progressives.

      WE’VE ALL KNOWN THIS FOR YEARS…AND RIGHT WINGERS WILL FOREVER TRY AND HIDE IT…JUST LIKE THEY TURN AWAY FROM THE SUBJECT OF SLAVERY…OR CHOOSING ONLY TO SERVE THOSE WHO CAN BENEFIT THEIR OWN CAUSE…OR COLOR-PICKING HUMAN BEINGS LIKE A BAG OF GRAPES. YES INDEED THIS HAS BEEN THE STORY FOR THE PAST NEARLY 8 YEARS….BUT MY FAITH SAYS THIS………………..THE TABLES WILL TURN ON THEM AND JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED..AND SERVED INDEED!

    I think I just heard Palin in the background on CNN refer to Trump as “the redhead from the red apple.”

    Uh. Big Apple? Big head?

    And has Trump admitted to the red hair or even the orange face, Sarah?

    In other “news,” somebody told Jeb Bush to appear w/o his eyeglasses, in an interview with Wolf, I guess. The only good part is that in the new CNN “poll,” Jeb is now showing 10% in NH. I’m almost at the point that if I were a Dem in NH, I’d switch parties just to vote for Jeb in the primary, and I cannot stand Jeb and absolutely wouldn’t want him to be in the White House.

    GA TODville.

    O/T, but has this been discussed here?

    This girl died alone in a jail cell overnight (Jan 10-11).

    The only explanation I can think of for her death (if not a homicide or suicide) is:

    Which begs these questions:

    Why the heck would a girl be arrested, jailed for “domestic disturbance?” Wasn’t there some other course of action available to diffuse the situation?

    Are Black folk no longer safe in their own homes (e.g., Bettie Jones, killed by Chicago police “by accident” on Dec 26 *inside* her own apartment)?

    Why are police in charge of investigation into death of a teenager while in police custody???

    And hundreds (thousands?) of people in Flint Michigan were (are being) poisoning by their water, GOP in a lather about the regrettable/tragic deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi and HRC e-mails, yet Michigan thinks they can get away with this:

    I have too much respect for TOD to really post what I’m thinking about MMFlint right now….

      The mayor of Flint was at the White House yesterday and spoke with the President and others in the admin. Taking him to Flint would be strategically difficult, as stupid MM well knows. The real work goes on behind the scenes. Besides, MM lives up in the beautiful Traverse City resort area now, not Fling. I believe their mayor has it in hand.

      Some serious daddy issues in mmflint tweet. If i tweeted i would tell him so. Maybe his time would be better spent badgering gov snyder, or rallying people to gotv for 2016 to bring some responsible democrats elected.

      Yeh he’s getting on my nerves with that. Flint doesn’t need a damn presidential photo op. They need a new governor.

    • January 20, 2016 at 6:29 pm

      Nothing is plan, nothing is arrange, nothing have been check out, for security reasons, but Michael Moore think the President can just jump up and run to Flint because Moore wants him too.

      • January 20, 2016 at 6:39 pm

        Dudette you are so right,that Governor need to go. Also if people had got out to vote 2014 Michigan would have had a Democrat for Governor. And this would not have happen. It is just awful.

      hopefruit2, MM realizes that this is POTUS’ last year in office and our President has never paid any attention to him….at all….🙂 This is not different. Must be frustrating.
