    … “It remains to be seen what Mrs. Trump’s priorities will be,” said Claudia Barker, the executive director of Edible Schoolyard. “I would certainly hope — but I wouldn’t say I’m hopeful. This is an administration that basically wants to reduce or eliminate free school meals for impoverished children.” …

      Almost every tweet or statement that comes from anyone associated with Trump has a spelling error in it. This one says: “Spokeswomen Sanders…..” It is a singular noun, should be “spokeswoman” Do they ever proofread, or if someone does is that person totally ignorant?

      I live in OKC the birthplace and home of Hobby Lobby. One of my very good friends is a close friend of the wife of the owner. I also know people who have worked for them. I refuse to shop at Hobby Lobby. I do not respect the way they treat their employees, nor the way they exploit Chinese workers. They are super religious and expect everyone to pay obeisance to them. They do not deal fairly. This event is right in line with their behavior. I hope they get punished…….this is probably the tip of the iceberg. I know my personal boycott of them does not harm their business, but I urge all of you, if there is a Hobby Lobby near you, to boycott them.

        Never heard of Hobby Lobby before they made news about opposing birth control — not sure if they’re in California…

        @MattDPearce’s Twitter timeline is pretty amusing on this subject:

          How can you sue a company/charge a company – where are the PEOPLE that did this? Why are they not charged? It sure wasn’t a business that illegally bought these artifacts – it was one or more people.

    45 offered an alternative along the campaign trail to former President Barack Obama’s strategy on defeating the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), promising a “secret plan” that would ensure “total victory.” Turns out, his strategy for wiping out the extremist terror group remains exactly the same as Obama’s…

      It doesn’t matter what his aides prepare for FUBAR.

      He’s got the attention span of a gnat, unless something involves adulation from crowds or anything (good) about himself.

      Vlad has so much leverage over FUBAR that we’ll be lucky if Alaska is still part of the US when he returns…

      Dmitry “Rogozin was the leader of the ultra-right party called Rodina, or Motherland, and famously believes in the restoration of the Russian Empire, including what he calls “Russian America” (i.e., Alaska).”

      Good morning all. Ditto to what gcl said. Ditto to what others said about HL. Story: I was at Michael’s couple weeks ago in the scrapbooking aisles. (Looking for things to go with/wrap Chris Blue’s, The Voice winner, wedding gift.) I am NOT good at anything like that. There was another woman in one of the aisles and I asked her for help. She was very helpful. I could tell she was knowledgable with scrapbooking, etc. As we walked up and down the aisles, she said, “I usually go to Hobby Lobby so I don’t know much about this store and what they have. You may want to go there.” I said, “I do not go to HL for reasons that I won’t express. Never go there. Will not go there.” Her response was such that I know she go my message and knew it was political. 🙂 🙂

      More and more, I get the feeling that it will be women who will bring down the evil empire. The women in congress, the media, the law, those running for office and the various female activist groups, are smart, committed, focused and pissed off. They are not fighting for some intangible ideal, but for the very lives and quality of life for women, children and the men who are our allies. Women are tired of the systemic abuse and the absurdity of ignorant and mediocre men being at the helm of institutions that decide life and death and are ready to do something about it.

        Exactly why men fight so hard to keep women from power and money: women will feed everyone, heal the earth, protect animals, protect children and other living things, end wars, bring peace. In short, change and eliminate all the things rich men do to keep power and money for themselves at too great a cost for all. #theresistanceisfemale 🌹👊🏼

        • July 6, 2017 at 10:35 am

          Trump and the far right machine are already hard at work to discredit Sen. Kamala Harris. They fear her power tremendously because she speaks with authority and a directness they cannot fathom.

      👊🏼 I read yesterday (sorry, no link) Mueller’s team are of such high caliber they don’t go after small fry. Reading that one sentence has given me tremendous peace of mind. 🙏🏻🎶👁👁❤️

      • July 6, 2017 at 10:33 am

        I can’t imagine a more stellar team. Mueller has assembled the best of the best, people who have been US attorneys and Assistant US attorneys on very high profile cases; those from top rungs of Justice Department back when it meant something; those who have argued before the Supreme Court. It’s something that should shake this WH to the core.

        So far (he’s adding more nearly every week), these are the areas of focus of the team he’s hired:

        criminal law, executive privilege, national security (Jeannie Rhee)
        national security (Brandon Van Grack)
        national security and counterterrorism (Zainab Ahmad)
        campaign finance (James Quarles III)
        organized crime (Lisa Page, Andrew Weissmann)
        money laundering (Lisa Page, Andrew Goldstein)
        public corruption (Andrew Goldstein)
        Watergate (James Quarles III)
        white-collar crime (Jeannie Rhee)
        asset forfeiture (Andrew Goldstein)
        cybersecurity, cybercrime (Aaron Zebley, Zainab Ahmad)
        flipping witnesses ( Andrew Weissmann)
        Russian media and censorship (Elizabeth Prelogar)
        criminal appellate law (Michael Dreeben, Elizabeth Prelogar, Adam Jed)

        When Mueller acts, he is prepared to make the allegations stick. I have trust it will be a thing of beauty.

          This line-up gives me hope that the result will be more than a white paper and recommendations to a congress that will ignore them. I am also stoked about the talented, hard-driving women who are on his team.
