    Good West Coast morning TOD. NW, that was an amazing thread last night! I loved reading everyone’s musical choices 🎧

    And I’m extremely happy to see the two Simone’s win Gold 🏆

    I literally cannot stand any of my coworkers, all of them will vote for Trump and they believe all of his bullshit. I’m seriously considering taking off early today.

        And the bbq in Austin sucks, and the side dishes suck also. And when you’re backing out of a parking stall please pay attention because the other drivers don’t pay attention. And every male walks around with a fucking Tabaco spit-cup.

          See Don, I don’t know why you don’t just tell me how you really feel. lololololololol

          I am so sorry for laughing. I am not laughing AT you….I am laughing at the visuals I get as I read through your responses. lol

          I’m not sure what to say…. It will get better??? 🙂

          Don, I so understand where you are coming from. I live in Montana and cook at a cattle auction. I am around ranchers, farmers and cowboys. Thank goodness they don’t talk about politics much but when they do I have to walk away. I won’t get into to arguments with any of them. At least I only see them 2 days a week. I love where I live, but we are a very purple state and have extremes on both sides. Bernie won this state, so we have rabid left wingers along with the rabid right wingers. There aren’t too many I can feel comfortable talking politics with. That’s why this place is my saving grace. Good luck at work.

      • 37 Don
        August 12, 2016 at 10:12 am

        20-55, no one is older than 57 because of mandatory retirement.

        • 38 nospin
          August 12, 2016 at 12:13 pm

          I was hoping the age would be around retirement age and that the younger generation would see past that stuff.

          That is unfortunate and I can see why it is also frustrating Don. Thanks for responding.

      With you there, so miss Chips and her irreverent sense of humor, the absolute best.

      Tomorrow’s her birthday, what should we do to show our appreciation?

      • 49 desertflower
        August 12, 2016 at 10:43 am

        arapaho…YOU ARE AMAZING! We should have a party and make her smile:) Post birthday wishes and funny dog gifs…of dogs just doing doggy things:) We’ll think of something!

          Perfect!

          Everything happy, lots of dogs being dogs GIFs/videos — makes me smile thinking about how FUN tomorrow will be.

          Hope NerdyW passes this along to Chips, so she can peek in and know how much we LOVE her!!!

          A thread without politics, just fun, happy Bday stuff would be so wonderful, helping us savor how the most amazing man and his family brought us all together.

          Love ya, Chips and Danny-O!

            I agree, it should be a post exclusively for Chipsticks birthday….NO DT or HRC (PBO or family is fine after all this IS The Obama Diary).

              GM jojo.

              Absolutely agree — No DJT, the unhinged publicity seeking fraud that turns all our stomachs.

              And absolutely, can never get enough of PBO and family, better than dogs-being-dogs GIFs, LOL.

              Only cute, funny, beautiful, loving presents for our Chips and Danny!

            Such a great idea. I have been really feeling the need to show Chips how much we love and miss her. I’ll have to see if I can figure out how to do it.

            We know Nerdy Wonka will do it.

    GM TODville.

    Offline again most of day yesterday… this time because of SoCal Edison boo-boo, power out from 6pm-4am this morning. 😦

    Saw this stunning fact about American history and wonder why Dems don’t use this simple truth when confronted with mindless GOP supporters. What would be their response? At a minimum, might get them to think about the past 100 years of American history:

    “Conventional wisdom holds that President Obama was naive in pushing for bipartisanship during his first term when the Republicans had crafted a strategy of total obstruction. Liberals were angered that he continued to offer fig leaves towards compromise when he should have known that the opposition had no intention of meeting him halfway.

    But let’s imagine for a moment that the President had taken their advice and only offered progressive policy proposals. Republicans would have continued to obstruct. But they could have done so by aligning with more centrist positions themselves. By inhabiting large swaths of the political continuum, Obama left them no choice but to become more extremist in their obstruction.”

      I love the bit about President Obama being naïve, he seems to have “naïve-d” himself into getting Obamacare passed and ending DADT and DOMA, and putting two women on the Supreme Court and saving the auto industry and presiding over the long stretch of job growth recorded and killing bin laden and getting elected twice. One should want to get called “naïve” more often. Fact is President Obama gave the Republicans all the rope they wanted, and now he’s in Martha’s vineyard playing golf while the Republican party is being destroyed by a petulant, thrice divorced, leveraged to the hilt con-man that ran a now defunct university.

    The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls show Clinton with commanding advantages in Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia — and also a 5-point edge in vote-rich Florida. They were conducted Aug. 4-10, suggesting that Clinton’s convention bounce has been sustained more than a week after she accepted the Democratic presidential nomination.

    In Colorado, Clinton leads Trump by 14 points, 46 percent to 32 percent. In North Carolina, which Mitt Romney won four years ago, Clinton’s lead is 9 points: 48 percent to 39 percent. In Virginia — home state of Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, Clinton has a 13-point lead.

    /

    Not only does Clinton lead in each of these states, but the polls also show Trump is a drag on GOP candidates downballot. In Colorado, incumbent Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet has a 15-point lead over his Republican challenger, Darryl Glenn, 53 percent to 38 percent.

    In North Carolina, the poll shows Democrats ahead in both key statewide races. Attorney General Roy Cooper has a 7-point lead in his campaign against GOP Gov. Pat McCrory, 51 percent to 44 percent. And GOP Sen. Richard Burr trails Democratic challenger Deborah Ross for the first time in a nonpartisan public poll — though Ross’ lead is within the margin of error, 46 percent to 44 percent.
