      IT SEEMS LIKE A MILLION YEARS AGO..NOT JUST 4 MONTHS..THE LOSS HAS BEEN GREAT…THE LOSS IS ALSO BITTERSWEET BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE PRESIDENT OBAMA OR HIS WIFE TORTURED ANYMORE BY A VERY SICK,RACIST AND SELF CONSUMED SOCIETY. AS I HAVE ALSWAYS SAID..YOU WILL NEVER REPLACE THE ENERGIZER BUNNY…THE GRACE..THE INTEGRITY AND MOST OF ALL THE COMPASSION FOR OTHERS..THESE ARE THE ATTRIBUTES OF A WISE LEADER. YES..WE DO GET WHAT WE DESERVE WHEN WE ACCUMULATE AN UNGODLY SWAMP AND TRY TO PASS IT OFF AS JUSTICE. TRUMP IS JUST ABOUT AS LOW AS YOU CAN GO…TO THIS DAY..I HAVE NEVER CALLED HIM PRESIDENT..AND NEVER WILL….

    Dear President Obama, thank you for the Paris Agreement which wouldn’t have happened without you.
    Ice caps in Greenland and Antartica are melting DRAMATICALLY faster than predicted. Arctic sea ice has shrunk by 30% since 1979 and as the ice melts New York, Miami, New Orleans, Indian and Australian coasts are threatened. If the climate warms by 2 or 3 more degrees, global sea levels will rise by at least 3 feet (and perhaps by 10 or 15 feet).

    My favorite blogger, Fred Clark aka Slacktivist, wrote this beautiful post today. I think it’s all something we need to read, a voice of experience reaching out from a terrible time in the past with the message that anger can be constructive and cannot be allowed to lead to despair. My favorite quote was:

    Hope has two daughters. One is Anger and the other is Courage. And both are beautiful.

The above average assholes get, penitentiary, slamming really big 5 syllables. I’ll leave the infighting over word usage to their sorry selves.

    It’s not enough, while appropriate, to clean the filthy GOP criminal lineup, the election 2016 must deemed illegitimate and declared null and void. None of GOP should be handed any power, ever again. They have all been in collusion, turned a blind eye too many times, as they flip the middle finger to this country. While I have high regard for Louise and Claude, their determination to have a GOP in the White House is beyond my grasp. We would not be at this not be at this traumatizing juncture in our history if the GOP governed themselves with a modicum of morality, compassion, or even a simple regard for all living beings, and this tiny fragile 🌎 planet. 🙏🏻

      I didn’t get the impression they wanted a Repub prez. I got the impression it was about line of succession. Also, I ‘m not sure folks realize if Hatch becomes president, it means DEMS will control both the House and Senate.

    • May 11, 2017 at 3:50 pm

      Well, Louise Mensch is a Conservative. I agree that we’re too focused on the top of the tree and not the roots.

      • 75 57andfemale
        May 11, 2017 at 4:04 pm

        What passes for an English conservative is often nowhere near as radical as it is here. For the last week, a lot of twitter chatter to not put much stock in Mensch or Claude Taylor because they hadn’t revealed sources. They both are vindicated now. They were right.

        • May 11, 2017 at 5:07 pm

          I wasn’t clear. I’m not saying disregard Mensch because so much of what she’s been saying for a long time has turned out to be true. But it is possible for all that that her end goal is not exactly the same as ours.

          • 77 57andfemale
            May 12, 2017 at 11:05 am

            I don’t trust anyone except my TOD family! But Mensch has certainly been a source of excellent information which has ended up being true. We need all the help we can get. Even conservatives in Europe are terrified by Trump. The damage is incalculable. If Americans don’t take a strong stand, we will lose our moral supremacy. 62M Americans sent a childish madman to the WH, who has staffed government with a slew of unqualified idiots with massive conflicts of interest. If Mensch has good sources and good information, we need it.

        As much as I am anxious to see #45 go down unfortunately this search today didn’t have anything to do with Trump. I wish that these folks on twitter who claim to have the inside scoop on this Russia investigation would really reseach stuff like this before they go and get everyone excited about something like this being the beginning of the end.

        “The FBI raided the office of a Republican campaign consultant in Annapolis on Thursday, part of an investigation the firm’s president said was tied to the 2013 Virginia governor’s race.”

          But apparently they’re tied to Manafort and Trump, it’s possible other stuff will be turned up. I think at this point people are thinking any movement is hopeful.

    Our local news comments regularly that our #ForeverPOTUSandFLOTUS go out quite often and are always greeted with much love from the patrons:

    “A fellow diner tells us that most of the patrons tried to be cool and not ogle at the former first couple, who we’re told left their menu in the chef’s hands and dined on “a lot of pasta,” as well as a dry-aged steak with a red wine sauce, plus a bottle of vino. The meal ended with something sweeter than dessert, though: When the Obamas stood to leave, a hush fell over the dining room before diners broke into applause and gave the couple a standing ovation.”
