    A parody about Dolt45, set to ‘The Sounds of Silence’

    So… as far as ending DACA goes.. where is loudmouth Luis Gutierrez ? Who never missed a chance to go on tv to bash president obama on immigration policy(even though he was on his side)…

    MIA 🙈

      THIS!!!! all day every fucking day, this motherfucker broke his fucking neck to get in front of a camera just to bad mouth President Obama when it came to immigration. And not just immigration, you got a handful of Democratic leaders fighting, but where are the rest of them and where are they hiding?

    • September 4, 2017 at 8:34 pm

      Yup. I remember Luis even chaining himself to the White House gate one time, blaming President Obama for immigration legislation not happening. I was like, “Asshole, aren’t YOU a Congressman? Why don’t you introduce legislation?”

      A democratic congress, 5 “no votes” in the Senate in 2010, kept these young people from being protected by the law, if what I read is correct. I will long have resentment toward the dems, specially the so-called Blue Dog Democrats, who did not support PBO.

    Hello TODts on Labor Day 2017.
    Congrats, WhenPamelaWanderedn your Au ⭐ & Ag ⭐
    Thanks for a new Post, NW.
    I had not watched the news for nearly 24hrs nor did I tweet for ver 18hrs. I just found out about DREAmers here at TOD when I signed on Today.
    How Crude & wickedly driven with Cruelty must #GOP as a National Party continues to behave before Most Americans Loudly scream ENOUGH of this Cancerous Party & render this Party to extinction? Good Grief!

      Dude, the “Trump Diversity Council” is an oxymoron.

      Were you not paying attention when David Duke jumped for joy when Trump was elected?

      Did the white supremacists in the Oval Office not give you pause?

      Maybe, at long last, some of you who inexplicably decided that Trump could/would take a different tack will learn.

        Seriously. Who even puts Trump and diversity in the same sentence, other than to say he doesn’t give a gnat’s balls about it?

      Mexico is a kind neighbor. The world is looking and condemning US for its state sanctioned hatred, hypocrisy, and unfair trade practices toward this much smaller country.
      Will ICE stand at the border to keep them from crossing over? The way things are now this could easily happen.

        Cool! They’ve sold out here in Oakland and aren’t coming to SF so I’ll miss them.

        • September 5, 2017 at 7:46 am

          I like the pods. Delray will be on tour as well. Do yu listen to his pod

          • September 5, 2017 at 9:42 am

            I haven’t listened to all of them but I’m so proud of Jon and Dan and Tommy for starting such a great collective of good people, each with their own view and expertise. Although I love pods, I’m more of a visual learner so I prefer reading but once I get to listening I find it to be such a wonderful medium. And Dan Pfeiffer really cracks me up!

      That’s what happens when you know the Republican congress has your back, and the media is complicit.

      If this was a question of Hillary’s returns? They would have given a microphone to every R who wanted one to hound her on camera.

    Maybe it’s time for Mexico to give Trump & co. a taste of their own bigoted medicine. No more wealthy white tourists allowed in, no more Mexico City, no more Puerto Vallarta… and how about all those ex-pats living cheaper in Mexico? Boot ’em out.

    My feelings about all of the deportations/ about ICE & their boss Trump are so full of hatred that I can’t even put them into words anymore.

    Pls see: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/the-purge-of-transgender-people-from-american-life_us_59ad7f7ae4b0bef3378cda5e\
    (Summarizing): Trump wants to drive Trans people from public life.
    -His closest allies are Evangelicals and FRC (as if there was any “research” going on).
    -Prohibiting passport gender marker changes.
    -No workplace legal protections.
    -Using bathroom facilities aligned with gender identity illegal.
    -No medical coverage by the government or any other identity.
    -Prohibits military service.
    The persecution of the Transgender Community is frighteningly similar to the early days of Jewish persecution in Nazi Germany.

    A word in Bernie’s ear: NO. Another word: NO. As in No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. The Russian bots + GOP bots have had
    a screaming field day – between driving the wedge and clubbing us with Bernie. IMO if Bernie has any kind of anything (and he seemed fine well the day I shook his hand one time) he will stay the fiery Hell away from presidential elections. He is too messed up. Am suspicious of any group that recommends he run after the last fiasco. See: https://ivn.us/2017/09/01/democratic-party-replaced/

    It’s funny how when you’re looking for beauty in the universe, it doesn’t take long for it to show up in the most unexpected ways.
    I’ve been listening to Yuna’s album “Chapters” lately and today I went online to see if she put out a video for this song of that I really like. Yuna is a singer/songwriter from Malaysia who has a U.S. hit duet with Usher.
    Anyway, while I was looking for a video for this…

    … I ran across this gorgeous video of her engagement party from last month. This sumptuous video is set to an instrumental version of Bon Iver’s “Holocene” one of my favorites. It is so beautiful, I’ve watched it way too many times.
