    I have not posted in ages but I am here everyday. Had to post today just taking in all the tributes to the Queen.

      Hello, my friend! I, too, had to drop by tonight because I knew our TOD family would be celebrating The Queen! How’s life treating you? Hope all is well with you and yours.

    Didn’t read the story … and won’t post the tweet ’cause it has orange blob’s pic on it … but looks like all those hometown newspaper editorials did the trick.

    Y’all, I was sad when I read on last thread that sister Aretha would not want sister Patti at her home going celebration.
    For those of us who believe there is a Heaven, I don’t want to believe that we will be dividing it up in sections.
    The song says “When We ALL get to Heaven”

    We are the ones …

      Of course, I don’t know what their relationship was in life … but I totally, totally agree with you, in my heart.

      All of those “Earthly battles” (which might have been settled on Earth at some point anyway, had there been time) no longer matter, when Heaven – which I also believe in – awaits.

    Too funny. Realized I hadn’t seen it, so I literally googled “weak ass senate resolution against trump’s free press” (which was a raw request, I admit, but I’m tired), and the story came up.

    Like most peeps here, Aretha Franklin’s music, her voice was the soundtrack of just about every decade of my life. I love all of her music; but in particular, this one. I was just 11 years old when this song came out. A young black girl coming of age in Boston just before folks truly lost their minds (again) when court ordered desegregation of Boston public schools and mandatory busing in the mid 70’s started. It was ugly for everybody, but especially us kids who just wanted to go to school and learn. Yet when I heard Aretha’s soaring vocals and the power of her singing this song, you are Young, Gifted and Black, it made me sit up straight,( still does frankly), shoulders back, head up high, feel and believe in every corner of my soul, the truth of this song. It is imprinted on my soul to this day, something I told and tell myself when doubts, fears creep in. Aretha told me I was young, gifted and black with my soul intact. I believed her and am eternally grateful that she made me believe in myself. I dedicate this song to my young and young at heart black sisters and brothers. Your souls are intact. Remember that. Thank you Aretha. May you forever rest in peace and power…

      Beto is just amazing. He reminds me so much of President Obama in this way. No matter what’s going on he stays the course and keeps it moving forward. He will be a great senator.

      • August 17, 2018 at 11:55 am

        Yes!! He has a very visible quality of genuineness and sincerity that shines through everything he does. And, as you say, he just keeps pressing forward, eyes on the prize.

      Obama got no credit for understanding that TPP was mainly for national and global security. To use trade to check China’s militarization of the region. The small minds on the right that just wanted to destroy him, and the small minds on the left that zeroed in on a few clauses. I swear Elizabeth Warren and Bernie never read the agreement.

      And here we are: China goes unchecked in the Pacific. Trump jettisons military exercises with South Korea & North Korea gives up nothing. And an entire GOP full of traitors who support this psychopath.

    How are babies or children held in courts and asked if they “understand” why they are in court? The whole mess is crazy! How can someone who cannot speak English or understand why they are in court can be deported or represented without a parent or guardian. That’s like saying a minor can enter into a legal contract without a parent and get sued! That will and can NEVER happen in the America I used to know.

    Afternoon delight!

    I just read that El Fuhrer has canceled his fake military parade in DC because Pentagon decried the costs as too high, even for their taste. What a joke! Can somebody wake me up when this charade is over?

    I keep asking myself why John Brennan, why of all the people to choose from do you revoke Brennan’s security clearance? Trump doesn’t do three dimensional chess, a person that lives and dies by making chess moves would have revoked Brennan’s security clearance. Trump wouldn’t know why to revoke Brennan’s security clearance. Someone with a big brain called for this move to be made. Do you really think that someone that’s obsessed with parades would think to make a move on the former Director of the C.I.A?

      I am sure there is someone directing him to do this, just who? I think Kelly or someone else with this same knowledge. I would even say Bitch McTurtle would be top on the list. He would know exactly what to do so that the Senate could not say anything.

    • August 17, 2018 at 4:38 pm

      I think Trump deeply fears what Brennan knows. And the more Brennan spoke out in response to Trump on twitter, the more he got on his nerves because Brennan did not mince words, he cut to the chase. Trump also does not tolerate men who are smart and powerful in their own right. Just another narcissistic wound.

    While Aretha is still with us may i also thank her for something hard to say. Her deep expression let me know when I needed to know it – that
    this fire within was all right. OK to be and feel that dark mother of all dragons down, down at the very roots of existence. She, She could meet you there. All my love to you Aretha.
    -thanks to all.
