    First

    Just got back from a texting session. We had about 15 folks and we each sent 400 – 500 texts. So fun.

      Thank you so much for sharing that interview. I love reading President Obama’s words and somehow hearing his voice at the same time. We were truly blessed as a country to have him as president, his wife as First Lady, Joe Biden as Vice President and Jill Biden at his side.

      … and then this happened ….

      Don’t always resonate with CC, LM, JS, EG, et al., but they are fierce advocates of jailing Trump and his entire treasonous cabal …

    Good Morning all. I found out the other day that my students feel that I am very politically aware and that there are things they can’t say in my class or I would be on their case. I was very happy about this because it means they know my class is a safe place where all will be protected. So glad that I might be making a difference to establish justice and ensure domestic tranquility and equal protection for all in my classroom. As the school year ends, please may they grow up to be believers in democracy and stand up to fight to preserve it and may they live their lives to the fullest and not be gunned down by a disgruntled former classmate.

      I have very mixed feelings about Jefferson…in fact with all of the so-called founding fathers…because their words did not apply to the “black elephant” in the room…in fact they were not convinced that the enslaved black people were eve human with any rights that had to be respected….later those very words were enshrined in law…

      The struggle for dignity and human rights…has been here for so long…white supremacy…racism…and white privilege is so part & parcel of the fiber of America…i do not know if it is something that will ever truly be eradicated…

      I remember so long ago…Bog talked about Truth and Reconciliation…and how it had to be led by the 43% of white voters who continue to vote on the side of POC…i did not believe that was so…but my daughter along with Bob have convinced me that this is so ….that despite the the fact that black people will continue to fight and to win battles…

      white folks of conscience…(as Dr King called them) have to take up this battle among white people…among white people…

    https://crooked.com/article/medias-undeniable-pro-trump-bias/

    Trump is employing a strategy that might be familiar to coaches of inferior middle school basketball teams: Foul your opponents on every play, because, by human nature, referees are not equipped to blow the whistle on every play for fear of seeming biased. They are going to let some plays go by. In politics, journalists are the referees. And because they give Trump a pass on so many of his fouls, he avoids scrutiny that politicians who play by the rules would be subjected to regardless of ideology.

    Yup.

    It seems as though we are getting to the constitutional phase of Trump’s presidency as it relates to him possibly being subpoenaed. And I can assure you nobody on Trump’s legal team will be about to match wits with Mueller’s team, bullshit and bluster are not sound legal strategies.

    Dudette: happy to hear the good news regarding your mom.

    Wishing everyone a good Sunday morning.

    My hope for America this year is for a blue tsunami. Repigs have GOTTA GO. I just saw a clip from the rally in TN where Putin’s Puppet was encouraging the crowd to say the word animal – referencing folks crossing the border.. made me sick.

    One thing he has accomplished is his master’s (Putin) goals. Well done to those who are PP’s supporters … they have been PUNK’ed like never before.

    Watching AMJOY – Jonathan Capeheart just said PP should say “Thanks Obama” for the low unemployment. Made me laugh.

    I hope that the deplorable dip-shi*s who voted for PP will be affected by the tariffs that will be levied on US goods. They deserve nothing less at best.

    Would be nice if MSM stops covering PP. Who believes anything that comes out of that cap hole anyway? I know it’s not possible but …

    I hope Dems don’t co-operate with whatever it is Corker is proposing. If Re-pigs can stall and obstruct all they want … they don’t deserve co-operation.

    End of rant!

    In my Inbox today. Consider signing the petition at VoteVets.org

    I want to tell you something that is somewhat hard to believe. And that is, when we talk to members of Congress, some of them don’t understand just how pissed off people are about Trump’s ridiculous military parade.

    It’s not just that this parade would be an international disgrace.

    It’s not just about making women and men who signed up to sacrifice everything march down the streets of our nation’s capital to salute a chickenhawk.

    It’s about a president who has continually shown himself to have authoritarian tendencies.

    So, here’s what we need. Help us send a message to Congress that yes, you care deeply about this parade and you want action.

    Sign VoteVets Petition: Tell Congress that you are opposed to this military parade and you want to see action to stop it from happening.

    If Donald Trump really wanted to honor our military and veterans, he’d fill the nearly 50,000 vacancies at the VA. He’d bolster job training programs for veterans returning home. He’d protect public lands veterans use to “walk off the war.” He’d stop trying to cut food assistance from veterans who need it.

    This parade is a disgrace. Let’s stop it.

    All my best,

    President Obama knew that the election of djt meant that the leadership of the Western Hemisphere would pass from the U.S. to Canada. He was right….we see this happening every day. With Trump we have no moral authority any more. How long is it going to take for people to open their eyes to this???
