        I don’t know what I’ve done wrong, but the article is about Kelly Clarkson writing a song on her new album about the When they go low, we go high comment from Michelle Obama. How cool is that?

          This is why, as tempting as it is, that we do not get into the weeds and the mud with people who go low. Michelle’s words had a ripple effect that is affecting all kinds of people who will in turn affect others in a positive way. Kelly’s other point, that the haters don’t care what you think, feel, say or do, so do not waste energy on them. Indeed, our hurt/pain is like fine wine to them. the Obamas are wise people who knew this and for 8 years did not react to the bile that was hurled at them. This made the haters grind their teeth and stew even more in their putrid hearts because they did not get the reactions that they wanted. In these difficult times, may we all continue to go high and to fight the good fight in the right way; victory will be ours.

            You know what? I have hated some of the criticisms I have read aimed at Melania and young son, Barron lately. I am not a fan, but think the wearing heels on the plane to go to the disaster area is akin to PBO wearing a tan suit at the wrong time of year. Thoughts of Michelle’s “When they go low, we go high!” Comment came to mind. She did not say when they go low we try to match them. I also think of save your criticism for really important matters. There are so many criticisms needed for so many important issues that we water down the effectiveness by criticizing small matters.

    Sadistic “Trump sends no condolences to Mexico after it’s hit by an earthquake” and attacked Mexico on Twitter ” after it offered to help U.S. after Hurricane Harvey” (LA Times). Kind of like this young woman who rides fast on her bike with a black lab on a short leash. Every now and then she stops to give him a couple of whacks and a lecture. Guess she’ll only learn by running w/a leash attached to her own neck what it feels like. I’ve been kind to her and finally told her to eff off but perhaps nothing will penetrate the cold dead stone in the vicinity of her heart.

      This may have already been posted. Someone suggested going to book selling sites like Amazon and clicking on the “Like” or “Yes” button under nice comments about her book, because trolls are posting dozens of negative comments about her and her book on these sites. Apparently when you click the “Like” or “Yes” button under a comment it keeps that comment on the front page of the comments, so the trolls get moved to the bottom of the comments. Note: you may have to sign on to a particular book selling site to comment on a comment. Anyway, it was fun reading some of the insiteful, and nice and intelligent comments about her book. I wasn’t going to buy her book, but now I am. 🙂

    Good evening Nerdy & TOD!

    Can someone help me out here – I’m not seeing the point of this sudden & newfangled support for “Single-Payer” among some Senate/House Democrats, especially since Bernie Sanders is leading this. Furthermore, Nancy Pelosi (who I trust way more than Sanders) does NOT support this, and stated that she’s committed to saving to ACA, which is currently the main target of Trump & GOP destructive efforts.

    This seems to me more like a stunt – something that is known to fail BEFORE it gets out of committee. Is this just another effort to cause division among Democrats, and weaken support for the ACA under the guise of a “better” system of coverage?

    • September 12, 2017 at 7:07 pm

      As long as Bernie doesn’t run again for President. Like Hillary he must bow out completely. Don’t need to be a psychic to see what will happen if his ego gets revved up again.

    • 72 COS
      September 12, 2017 at 7:10 pm

      Backing Sanders single payer bill doesn’t mean crap if we do not get majorities in the House and Senate. I am sure the majority of Democrats back single payer. Is it realistic? We are having problems maintaining or improving ACA.

    • September 12, 2017 at 7:23 pm

      imo PBO would be happy with something better, if in fact it is. The ACA was a thousand compromises due to Collins et al watering everything down and then voting No. And getting around the Blue Dogs. Putting us all on same playing field as in all the other developed countries is a logical next step. It would be building on the ACA.

    Still without power though .. 🙄

    • 93 CEB
      September 12, 2017 at 11:15 pm

      So glad you came through; the predictions of what a direct hit could have done to the Tampa area were horrifying. My area of Fla. got more than 24 hours of non-stop rain, but no wind/gusts higher than 65 for the most part. The rivers crested and neighborhoods in those areas and the downtown area experienced flooding, but the waters have receded. Uprooted tress, broken tree tops and branches are everywhere, but power company has done a good job of getting most of the city powered up. We were truly blessed/lucky. Hoping and praying that the hardest hit areas receive the right kind of help in the timeliest fashion. A storm that literally covered the entire state was a first that I hope does not occur again.

      the struggle for access to ballot has been with us since the beginning of the republic…because whomever sits on the courts…whomever sits in the legislative seats…will determine policy and laws….what a difference having Garland on the court.would have made… instead we have Gorsuch because democracy is an empty word to the GOP….i wish the press had made a big deal about the unprecedented GOP Obstruction of a SCOTUS nominee as they made with Hillary’s emails….but they were pretty much silent .The right to vote is precious almost scared…as Congressman Lewis has said….In this case even when the people win…SCOTUS decided that we really didn’t…what do you when you cannot get justice thru the courts..
