    Hi there!

    i miss decency, kindness, compassion, intelligence, diligence, respect, dignity, intellectual curiosity, laughter, love, morality, and having confidence in our Chief Executive. I miss the days when I did not click on the news feeds with dread. I miss the days when we could travel abroad and people would greet us with happiness and respect because we had elected a world-class leader. I miss the days when I believed that this country was on the cusp of a new golden age. I miss hope and possibilities. I look at this list then remember that hope is needed in the darkest of days because it is what gets us through them. I remember that PBO said and showed us that progress is something that We fight for and produce and that We are the ones that we have been waiting for. I look at my life which is so different from what it would have been decades ago and i am reminded that overall, life is better. I remember history and recall that for every advance there was violent push-back and that nothing that we value was bought cheaply, but with blood, sweat, sacrifice, tears, prayers, and dogged determination to move forward. So we bind our wounds, lean on each other, and once more enjoin the war for the very soul of our country.

    Sound speech which cannot be condemned – CEB for the win…Hi Don of the colourful speeches

  4. October 10, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    I came here with a heavy, hungry heart, seeing TOD in my email inbox, knowing it’s been too long since I clicked into TOD. To see NerdyWonka’s name and Miss Pat’s name, and this simple pure poignant tweet, and then this from CEB. Well. Through tears, thank you. Don’s right as always: Well said CEB. Thank you. Thank you NerdyWonka. Thank you Miss Chips. Thank you all TOD family. Been too long and that’s on me letting Busy and despair and distraction claim my days. No more. PBO and FLOTUS got up this morning and got busy doing what they do. I will too. Forward.

      Some days I go on You tube and listen to a song “With a Thankful heart.” I still give thanks because in spite of my having my heart broken on November 8th there is still a lot to be thankful for: Good folks like the ones we have here, like you Nancy. Like Meta and Nerdy and all the others here that speak to me when I am down, that encourage me to heed the words of President Obama and be the change we are seeking. I follow you all on twitter and re-tweet you all. Thanks for being here and for all you all do.

    CEB, your discourse is absolutely right on, and right on time. If you will excuse a personal note…..what we all have gone through the last eleven months is mourning. The process of grieving is a long one, and takes care and work. All I remember from the first six months after my husband’s death is DARK. I remember dark outside my house, driving in the dark, walking the dog in the dark…..there is no light in my memory. By the time I went to D.C. with the TOD group, the sun was beginning to shine again. I was beginning to pick up my life and realize that I had to go on and be useful and give. This is where we all are, and CEB has expressed that beautifully. We will prevail, because we have to. We cannot let darkness overcome us and the country and the world we love. We are coming through our grieving time and are ready to rebuild. Thank you CEB.

    My habit is to post and leave to do other things that life and living require so I was not here to acknowledge everyone’s kind words and encouragement; thank you all for what you have given to me this day and throughout the days when we lifted up PBO’s name in the midst of enemies and in the days since 11/8/2016 as we grieved. I will look for the song that pat mentioned and take Carolyn’s wisdom to heart. I, like all of us here, struggle daily to push back the darkness and despair to try to hold onto love, light, and kindness (our PBO spoke so often of this last trait). I fight daily to keep hatred and thoughts of vengeance out of my heart so that i do not become that which I despise and some days are harder than others. Thank you to all of TOD who stayed the course in keeping this community alive so that we give each other hope and bathe in each other’s light.

      To all of you. Needed to read these comments. We are traveling so I’m locked in car reading Twitter and FB. Seeing the NFL may ‘require’ players to kneel. Seeing all the man child’s tweets, blaming HC and the Obamas and on and on it goes. Sad, frightening, frustrating. All the comments help, especially CEB and Carolyn. NW, how would we survive without TOD!? 💕💕

    You just hate to turn on the “news” or any of these shows anymore when you see how they treat the Clintons, Obamas, or any Democrat when they go easy on the Rethugs when they have the same issues. How they have the balls to complain about Hillary of Obama on ANYTHING when Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, and DT are serial sexual harassers in the Nth degree yet they don’t compel the GOP to say much of anything or give money back. Roger Ailes has been a HUGE contributor for the GOP and still is yet no one asked them to condemn him same with O’Reilly, no secret of his sexually harassing for decades.

    Richard Branson: Michelle Obama told me ‘we’re free’ after leaving White House
    BY JACQUELINE THOMSEN – 10/10/17 09:45 PM EDT

    Entrepreneur Richard Branson said Michelle Obama told him “We’re free” after leaving the White House in January.

    Branson wrote in his new book, “Finding My Virginity”, that the former first lady said she felt liberated after the couple left the White House in January, according to passages of the book provided by People Magazine. The Obamas spent a 10 day-long vacation with Branson in the British Virgin Islands in January.

    “It’s so nice to have my name back after eight years,” she told Branson, according to the book.

    Krugman Says Potential Fed Chair Warsh Is ‘Wrong About Everything’
    By Agnel Philip
    October 10, 2017, 4:17 PM CDT

    Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman didn’t mince words when asked about former Federal Reserve Governor Kevin Warsh’s candidacy to run the institution: “He’s been wrong about everything,” from inflation to fiscal policy, Krugman told Bloomberg Television in an interview Tuesday.

    But that may not stop President Donald Trump from nominating Warsh, 47, for Fed chair, because he has solid family connections and a Republican pedigree, according to Krugman, a consistent critic of the GOP. Warsh is married to Jane Lauder, daughter of Trump friend Ronald Lauder.

    “It’s kind of almost awesome. You could almost make money by taking whatever he thinks is going to happen and betting the other way,” according to Krugman. A spokesman at the Hoover Institution, where Warsh is now a fellow, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    * Carter Page has been one of the few members of Trump’s team who has been absolutely chatty on cable TV when it comes to questions about the Trump/Russia investigation. Apparently something has changed:

    Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, informed the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that he will not be cooperating with any requests to appear before the panel for its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and would plead the Fifth, according to a source familiar with the matter.

    sometimes, I wish Democrats would not be so easily manipulated by the media and punditry;

    often, Dems are obviously manipulated to such an extent that they put their promotion of their agenda to the side and instead focus their limited energy and resources answering the hysteria generated largely from republican talking points.
