    A couple friends are sending me these videos from places I used in live, in Florida, in case I move back. Here’s one I loved!

      My head literally started pounding earlier, when I saw what Miller & Co. (which includes his boy trump) were up to … not that I’m surprised … these people must be expatriated to Russia TODAY.

    • August 7, 2018 at 1:53 pm

      Miller is a racist bigot just like Trump.

      • August 7, 2018 at 2:16 pm

        Miller, Trump, Sessions all are bigots. How can you take children from their parents and put the children in cages, and it doesn’t bother you one bit.

        His grandparents a spinning in their graves that their grandson grew up to be a Nazi just like the people who would have put them to death if they had not arrived in the US. Maybe his other family members were “turned back” when the same racist here said there were too many Jews coming here.

        Exactly. What sickens me more is they look old enough to have gone all the way through the “Cold War” with Russia. Looks like they were too busy cursing out others at the time, to remember much about it.

    Was anyone else watching Ari Melber just now? He had on Michael Eric Dyson and a conservative black woman, whose name I didn’t get. I didn’t hear all of it but she wouldn’t let Dyson finish talking, she had to get in and argue. I would like to know what others think. I have family members posting about the black pastors that said Trump is doing more than Obama did for the blacks. How could all these people be so blind about everything. They would rather be Russian than a Democrat. This all is making me so sick. I don’t know how to respond.

      Hi mtmarilyn. I did not see Ari Melber this afternoon however when conservatives don’t have a good argument for their policies they talk over people and won’t let the opposing person talk. I usually change the channel because who needs to hear garbage. Ari apparently decided not to listen to Rosie O’Donnell. Those black pastors are lying that Trump is doing MORE for blacks than Obama. Due to his tariffs more blacks and whites will lose jobs, their homes, healthcare. By dismantling Obamacare he is causing blacks to lose their healthcare more than any other group. Many Red states that refused to take OCare affects blacks since they do not get any medical on part time jobs. If they do take the OCare money, they have to pay something when they can barely get by now. Just ask them where did they read this, what newspaper? If they say Fox, tell them FOX lies, Orange Satan lies, unless they can give you a WSJ article stating these facts tell them to these are just lies. Tell them your black friends told you he has not done anything for black people except Ben Carson and his family. He even fired Omarosa and she’s writing a book against him.

        August 7, 2018 at 7:37 pm

        Thanks 0388jojothecat, I have read some responses on twitter and they all had the same response I did. Rosie’s response is the best. I’ll follow your lead.

        • August 7, 2018 at 7:49 pm

          Rosie’s comments were spot on. She was even keel, no ranting or loud talking, etc. It was just truth and facts spoken in a common sense concise way. Too bad Ari didn’t listen to her. I had to turn him off just before that segment because we were getting ready to eat and hubby was coming into the room.

          Speaking of Michael Eric Dyson. My cousin (who is a Bob Jones undergraduate and Masters; then BJs disowned him when he got his PhD. from Princeton! He’s now a huge liberal, as is his wife, also a BJs graduate) read his book, Tears We Cannot Stop. He highly recommends it. He said he learned so much about race, racism, what our black friends/citizens have had to endure for years. He said it’s certainly not an ‘easy’ read. I keep writing it down on my ‘to do’ list to get it and read it. Don’t want to forget.

    I am trying my best…not to hold hatred in my heart…but i come across stories like this…and i just cannot understand how someone can have such hatred in ther heart for a child that was brutalized and tortured and murdered….can someone help me out this …

    • 54 mtmarilyn
      August 7, 2018 at 7:43 pm

      Sheila, I am with you on not wanting hatred in my heart. Seeing all these rwnj who feel they have every right to spew such hatred gives me such a heavy heart. Why would they shoot up a sign? Trump is giving them all the right to say what they feel and not worry about it. Consequences will come I do believe. I do believe there are many good republicans, they are my family, I can’t accept that they will let this continue. I have to believe in the good in people. But they are going to have to start speaking up. They can’t let this hatred continue. We won’t let them.

    • August 7, 2018 at 7:53 pm

      I wish I could bring some measure of comfort. But most days I just despair over the blatant racism and bigotry enabled by the evil that is pouring out of the WH. Just disgusting putrid evil every damn day. We will get past this but it will take years of work.

    it feels very strange when much of the national media is focused on the voting taking place in your hood;

    => I have been getting last messages from people who were running to get in the voting line by 7.30 p.m. eastern;

    …. whatever happens tonight, I am glad about the fight that the Dem, Danny O’Connor, has put up in this very red district;

    Think I just saw that the OH-12 Green martian people got 0.6% and the diff between RWNJ and Democrat is 0.9%. Heard 0.5% is recount territory. There are 3,435 provisional ballots not counted – won’t be counted for at least 10 days. Ugh.

    O’Connor speaking now.

    • 93 jacquelineoboomer
      August 7, 2018 at 11:00 pm

      O’Connor’s remarks were very good. Whoever wins has to run again in November, since this is a short-term (very late) special election.

      At least I think I have that right!

  39. August 7, 2018 at 11:02 pm

    Apologies for posting this photo again. But so many people don’t recognize this traitor. The guy on the right is House Rep, Russia-loving Dana Rohrabacher, who is neck deep in the Russia scandal, and said on video he’s for training TODDLERS to use GUNS…. on Sasha Baron Cohen’s new show….

    This Time, I honestly don’t Blame the Greens. I hear the passionate pleads. I agree that their votes hurt Dems. However, They call themselves the Greens for they know that they have got the Cushion to be different. Their Votes are Not being suppressed. They are not being discriminated. They can afford to continue to be pure.
    What Dems need is to push for Paper Ballots. All Provisional ballots when cast must be Counted w/o hasitations. No More requirements for registering to Vote….ONLY in US that that is a requirement. Then push for More Senators for States with More Population. Eg; from 8-15M=3 Senators. 16-20M=4 Senators. 21-30M=5. 31-40M=5 Senators. Then reduce the Ratio for House of Reps: 500K-700K=1 Rep. This way, States with more Pop would have a more equitable representation.

        It makes me sick to my stomach! These 3 guys have never served in government, never served in the military and do not hold any position in the federal branch. Their only qualification is they belong to MAR-A-LAGO. And yet they’re micromanaging the VA, including personnel decisions. JHC, this is all just so grotesque.

    This turned into a Bernie Bro battle with Ocasio-Cortez joining them vs a candidate who served with President Obama. So glad she won.
