      Why the LGBTQ community hasn’t built a monument to this man already is beyond me.

      i read some of the comments…it seems that folks do not understand what it means to be a trans gendered person…i think some folks are may be confusing trans gendered with transvestite….

      we really need to understand what all these things mean…but when you have a party that intends to use folks fears against them…it is hard…

      sigh…

    Fake bidders with names like Weedlord Bonerhitler, Racist McShootface, and Donald Trump helped drive George Zimmerman’s gun auction past $65 million on Friday morning, according to News 965. The site later showed that the fake accounts had been deleted.

      BBC World just said she is believed to be the last person alive who was born in the 1800s.

      Love it (her President’s official photo on her wall 🙂 ).

      Sad to hear about her passing, but in reference to what Dudette said: the last person who has witnessed the entire breadth of the 20th century.

      Rest in peace, Susannah.

        Thanks for pointing out the picture on the wall, Arapaho. I totally missed that! 🙂

        Still wrapping my head around her having been the last known person alive who was born in the 1800s. Wow!

    After railing against a “corrupt” fundraising system in the Republican primaries, Donald Trump now says he will raise hundreds of millions of dollars to compete in the general election.

    But the new money Trump raises is available not only for future campaigning — it can also go directly into Trump’s pocket, reimbursing him for his personal spending in the primaries.

      GM Dudette.

      EricFive is one of my favorite pundits. So glad he joined Twitter, would like to see him her in TODville more often.

      Excellent insight.

      Before the MSM hyped and fueled ridiculous “Tea Party,” these cretins pretty much stayed in their own circle of like-minded bigots and undereducated complainers.

      Trump has made bigotry and illiteracy acceptable, and has elevated boorishness and rudeness to an art form. The worst part of Trump’s presidency is that he’s a “celebrity,” which just reinforces his supporters’ belief that he is “the real deal.”

      Can’t reposted this enough…

    • May 13, 2016 at 9:37 am

      Paul Ryan if 7 out of 10 people believe America is headed in the wrong direction, it is because of the do nothing Republicans in Congress. This President have done all he can to put this country on the right path.And he has succeeded.

    Good morning Ms. Chips, Danny and TOD family, I hope all is well with everyone this lovely Friday morning. TGIF>> Congrats Allison, on being first this morning.

    To all, I hope that your charming, elegant, and dainty persona is on full display today. ❤ ❤ ❤

    Thank God that President Obama is still the President of The United States of America. ⭐🏆 ⭐🏆 ⭐🏆

              My paternal grandparents were both Norwegian.. they were born in Norway, but not sure if they were raised there. They became North Dakota farmers… lots of Norwegians in ND.

    This is why Americans and the world is so appalled at the mere thought of “President Trump…”

    Not sure I got this quote right (please correct if wrong), but after praising President Obama and the United States as a whole, PM Erna Solberg of Norway just said something along the lines of:

    “American leadership is key to ensuring the fate of the world.”

    Heaven help us all.
