    I’m with you on that. And congrats on being first. The Oprah interview was magical. I loved it.

      And notice the football in the upper right of the photo. PBO always tossed around a football in the Oval Office and when meeting with staff. It is probably one of his footballs. 🙂

    Wanted to post this again for anyone who missed it in the last thread. I got in touch with GGail and she will post something on TOD when she gets a moment.

    Have a good weekend everyone, in case I don’t get time to check into TOD.

    ForeverFLOTUS complete OWN interview. I saved it on DVR and have watched it several times. Black women are the alpha and omega.

      I hope the orange satan gets a chance to realize his hate filled words can harm his kids, the grown ones as will as the minor. He is reckless and until he can see it with his own eyes maybe he will stop.

      What you are witnessing is raw power, Black raw power. A Black first lady and a Black billionaire calling out supposedly the powerfullest man in the free world on his racist shit. This conversation took place without fear, and it did not take place behind closed doors, oh no, there were no hushed tones. This conversation took place in broad daylight, and for all the world to see.

    So what? Until Flake does more than just talk, all he’s doing is flapping his gums.

      “Closed Doors”? Flake is no longer relevant! He can go “F” himself for all I care. AZ has a Dem Senator thanks to the people of AZ. The GOP Gov will appoint another GOP Senator. Maybe that’s what Flake is hoping to get anointed.

      We made great strides and I am proud of everyone who voted, got souls to the poles, and were part of the Blue Tsunami. We live to fight another day. We still have Mueller and a whole lot of lawsuits out there. Orange Satan will not sleep will at night and he has to watch his back every day. He is even questioning the loyalty of his VP!

        • November 16, 2018 at 6:38 pm

          I am really worried about the voting processes in GA….she has to file that lawsuit re: the voting suppression…if she doesn’t Kemp will only become worse…esp if the Democrat does not win to be SOS

        Good! The man they voted for Governor made sure AA’s could not vote. Will the new SoS do the same? Now is the time to make sure that causing people NOT to vote or wait 4hrs is a crime!

      That is so disgusting. Adults should be ashamed of themselves if this is the solution to responsible gun control. So whose child is going to die to save another child? The child in Florida who took all those bullets for his students what are they’re parents doing for him? Vote in another Governor that won’t do shit! Vote in another Senator owned by the Gun Lobby! F YOU! my child is going to save himself!

        The hired security won’t run in to save the kids and teachers how the “F” are students and teachers supposed to do all this “life saving” procedures when the active shooter is reloading the people with the guns are waiting for the police.

        This country is crazy.

      Thank GOD. This country needs to have a majority of DEM Gov’s & SOS’s in order to get this country out of the evil hands of the GOP. We need a majority DEM Houses and Senate control throughout this country to preserve our Democracy.

      GGail, you have been in a place of vulnerability that is not wished on anyone and especially not on the ones we care about like we do care about you.

      Sending prayers for your continued recovery and for strength to the people who are providing you with all the care that you need.

      May your days ahead be better and very, very, …, very long.

      • November 16, 2018 at 9:40 pm

        So scarey to acknowledge how forest fires will be ramping up, especially in CA. imo there should be a real discussion about where it is viable to build and that includes areas that flood in FL. And not be taken in by real estate people.

        • 73 jacquelineoboomer
          November 16, 2018 at 9:47 pm

          Definitely. Jerry Brown was discussing the situation earlier today relating to CA – didn’t hear all of it, but he also added on “climate change” at the end, noting the severity of all of this. Looks like FL will be in the hands of a RWNJ, so …

            November 16, 2018 at 10:30 pm

            These fires ARE NOT IN THE FOREST! The fires are due to dry conditions, NO measurable rain in over 8 months, Santa Ana winds, PG&E towers arcing that sparks these fires. The fires in Paradise, Santa Rosa, and Ventura were in cities with lots of homes not in the forest.

          • November 17, 2018 at 12:04 am

            Looking at the maps you can see these are large landscape fires that are sweeping out of the forest and scrubland and into the city.
            They are not city fires but big fires that are engulfing the cities.

      Good morning. She definitely is! Since hearing her last night, I’ve been thinking that she may very very well end up having a bigger and more long-lasting impact in the role she is now taking on as opposed to being Governor of GA. Bless her!!!!

        when i listen to her…i feel an affinity with her…i do not know if she is ready for the Presidency..but i really like where she is…and i hope that whomever the Dem nominee is…that they speaks to us in the way that Stacey Abrams does….

    I wish someone can post this on the Paradise CA website or Facebook page if they have one:

    Trump axed California’s seven firefighting tankers as soon as he got into office — they had been funded by Congress in 2013 and were being converted for firefighting use — so Senator Feinstein had to push through another bill to get firefighting planes that, alas, won’t be here (if they aren’t blocked like the last ones) until next year. Trump reduced Forest Service firefighting planes by a third, forcing use of rent-a-planes that take 48 hours to muster. Trump hates their home state and wants to destroy all Blue States that did not vote for him.

    Once Congress funds a state, the next Congress or President should not be able to “axe” something that is vital to that’s states national security. The air quality in ALL of northern California is so unhealthy that schools are closed, the air is toxic to breathe, and thousands are homeless now because of the current occupants insane hate for Blue states. This is criminal!
