      She’s not a Trump Republican, I knew there was a reason I have learn to like Ana Navarro. For eight years Michelle Obama had to deal with Donald Trump and Melania lying that Barack Obama was not born in this country.

      I listen to Michelle Obama surprise visit at the children’s hospital in Colorado, where she read “Tis Was the Night Before Christmas”, and she answer questions from the kids,and she even did a dance. She was ask what was she going to get Barack for Christmas? She said he loves to golf, so she might get him golf shirts. One of the kids said she should get him a golf cart. It is just so nice to see her talk with the children, spend time with them.

    Trump Impeachment Would Damage U.S. Economy By Making Workers Hung Over For a Year

  22. December 13, 2018 at 9:26 pm

    whut?
    “I worked on a bunch of those beauty pageants [Trump] had in the ’90s too.’ (Noel Casler, former Apprentice staffer.)
    ‘Miss Teen Universe? That’s like giving Jeffrey Dahmer a cooking show. He would line up the girls on the side of the stage and he would inspect them, literally. He would stick his little freaking doll fingers in their mouth and look at their teeth. I’m not kidding. This is true. He’d line ’em up like they were pieces of meat. He’d be like ‘You, you, and you. If you want to win, I’m in the penthouse suite. Come and see me.’

      “He’s a speed freak. He crushes up his Adderall and he sniffs it because he can’t read and he gets really nervous when he has to read cue cards. I’m not kidding. This is true. I had a 24-page NDA, non-disclosure agreement. I didn’t know then he was becoming president.”

    President Obama (on video from the RFK honors) had “The Last Word” on Lawrence’s show tonight – Ali Velshi was filling in for Lawrence, and he sounded choked up about it.

    Who doesn’t want to cry a little, recognizing how great President Obama is, every time we see and hear from him!

      This was my 2nd best album I bought after I fell in love with the wonderful, soulful, and melodic voice of a great woman. The first album was You’re As Right As Rain. I played it until it wore out. My biggest regret in life is never seeing her perform in person.

      Rest in Peace and condolences to your two adult children and family.

    Dudette, should have refreshed before posting; of course you had us covered!

    Ms. Wilson was my all time favorite female vocalist! I was 9 or 10 the first time I saw her perform live. It was a matinee performance at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, NJ.; my Uncle, a jazz musician took us back to her dressing room after the show. I last saw her perform at the Berks Jazz Festival in 2008.

    Had tickets to see her at the Dell in Philly in June 2011. I skipped the show as I was behind in preparation for my 4th of July shindig; she announce on stage that was he final public performance… I cried for days…

    As always Hurrah for Chips, N.W. et al. for keeping me informed of so many things and now a few minutes ago I secured a ticket to *Becoming* Live in Copenhagen April 2019, so Meta thanks a lot for being the first one to draw my attention to First Lady Michelle Obama’s extended book tour – just cannot wait.
    Hearing President Obama in Oslo September ’18, and now the First Lady in Copenhagen = Nirvana!!.
    Is it not phenomenal how two people, i.e. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama can energize/ lift up the whole world by just being themselves.

      Obvious symptoms.
      If you’re suffering from lack of water after being too long out in the Sun it cannot be hidden or disguised. There’s a loss of body control, shaking and complete disorientation, the jaw goes slack. Scary as hell because there’s nothing you can do except get them rapidly to a hospital. Anyone working out in the heat, scientists doing excavations….it can happen to anyone of any age and death is swift without medical treatment (drip). Trump’s people on the border and in the Trump Baby Jails are lying about the little girl. They ignored her, neglected her cries, desperate calls for help and very obvious demise. They watched her die in front of their eyes. They let her die, they killed her.
      How many children are now dead due to illegal Trump border policies? How many Crimes Against Children will satiate Trump, his followers and private prison buddies? HOW LONG? How many more will die before we protect 14,000 incarcerated children from these monsters?

    April 17, 2013, strong and reasonable push for gun reform was cravenly blocked by the refuggs and the evil NRA. They wouldn’t even allow a vote, because they knew it would pass. President Obama let ’em have it. (Notice how restful he is to the parents?) Of course that was like a 100 years ago now. No one remembers how hard he tried.

      Just spoke on the phone to a scientist mid-fifties who’d been working on a project in the intense heat. Her colleagues rushed her to hospital with obvious symptoms. First she spoke about the combination of heat and dehydration. Typically symptoms start with a headache. Even though she tried lots drinking water, taking painkillers and caffeine – at that point it was just too late. Made no difference. Ability to pee ended. Then vomiting, shaking, fever ramped up. A crisis with the disorientation and jaw going slack on way to hospital. Put on IV with fluids and electrolytes. Doctors ran tests due to fear of heart attack. They checked her blood and found sodium level too low. Put her to sleep overnight. The IV was in for about 8 hours. She said it was an incredibly horrible experience and that hospital personnel saved her life in the nick of time. Also noted that little ones’ bodies might not be as resilient.
      -Too many symptoms not to notice on a little girl.
      -Guessing the Trump prison guards are NOT TRAINED TO IDENTIFY little things like dehydration and imminent death.
      -Once they’ve abducted a child they are RESPONSIBLE for medical consequences, sickness, and EVERY child’s unique response.
      What did these children do to Trump? End this. Lock.Him.Up.

      I left Facebook a few months ago, I mean I love my wife but whatever she thought was funny just wasn’t funny to me. And on top of that I’ve declined several coworkers friend request which made for awkward moments. I’m just not very sociable and talkative, and some people have taken my silence for being standoffish. I like being alone and I like to daydream and people seem to interrupt me as I’m lost in my own world and when I don’t respond to their presence in a positive way it becomes a big problem. Then I have to take time from what I’m doing just to soothe their hurt feelings, its a never ending merry-go-round. But hey, other than that, life is good.

      Parents: Anything, anything can happen to an unaccompanied child.
      Customs and Border “Protection” reported how they waited until the little girl’s temperature was over 105 degrees before taking her by helicopter for medical help. She died 24 hours later. If you can believe anything they say…this little girl was detained on the night of Dec 12th and was having seizures at 6.25 am next day. The Trump Prison Ghoulls will not say if she received any help BEFORE the onset of seizures.

        America’s Voice says the hieleras where migrants are placed right away are literally:
        “iceboxes” for being so cold—are horror shows and no place for any human being, regardless of age…wretched places. Freezing temperatures, no beds, lights left on, no showers, not enough toilets or toilet paper, filthy conditions, horrible smell, inedible food and not enough clean water to drink, and run by insulting and abusive agents. Front line workers report that most of those released from these CBP facilities are dazed, sick and hungry.” (Daily Kos)
