      That Orange SOB should have stayed out of politics so NOW he gets a bit of his own medicine and is crying! PBO worked hard for the American people and pretty much ignored the GOP “presidential harassment”. Maybe Orange Satan should try that and see if it works for him….but he is TOO damn lazy to work hard for the American people with 80% of his time tweeting BS every day.

    Good morning TOD! We are getting our cold weather here in Montana. It’s in the teens during the day and minuses at night. Over the weekend we had strong winds but now it’s just cold. Thankful not like the Midwest had.

    Just a catchup of happenings at our home. On January 7th we had a fire in our basement fireplace. Not the kind you want. Thank goodness it was small and my husband got home before damage from fire grew. When he arrived home the house was filled with smoke. But we found out smoke damage is almost as bad. Every single item in our home has to be cleaned. The good thing is our insurance is helping so far, they called ServPro to do all the work. We are living in long term hotel until our home is cleaned. This is quite the experience. Has anyone here gone through this before. I know Alycee had a fire and had a long repair time. But our was only smoke damage.

          Hi mtmarilyn. So sorry to hear of your home fire and the smoke damage. So glad your husband came home in time to prevent the fire from spreading. I had a near fire/smoke issue in my apartment. I had been burning the fireplace and decided to close the flew and put water on the wood to stop the fire. Something told me to get up and check to make sure the fire was out. I got up and my living room was full of smoke. I opened the flew, doors and windows to get the smoke out thankfully there was no smoke damage. I could have suffocated to death if I had gone to bed without checking on it. An Angel was looking out for me that night.

          P.S. Purpleshoes, Betsy and I will be visiting Gail later this month to celebrate her birthday. Will let folks know how it went.

          So does that mean every non-white who gets a deep or light tan is in “Blackface”? Maybe they should rename tanning beds to Blackface-beds and tanning lotions – blackface lotions. The stupidity of the GOP and the media is beyond out of control.

      One of the best things about all of the current republican and White House Rucker’s is that they will never be able to use the character and presidential argument again. It was hypocritical bullshit then and now they will never be able to drag a Democrat about anything. They are supporting outright treason, rank stupidity, coarseness, lying, cheating, and all around gross behavior.

  20. 54 CEB
    February 7, 2019 at 4:43 pm

    My take on the Liam Neesom mess: why bring up and describe this incident during a time of such public and rampant racism in high places? This is more than giving an example of a time when he had vengeful feelings to tell how he connected to a character. An actor has to know how to read the room, to understand nuance, to pretend to be someone else and to make others believe it. There is no personal benefit to him to tell this story and I such a graphic way other than this is who he really is and it all came out because he felt safe. As for The stupid Michelle roderiquez remark: part of racism is the objectification of women that provides cover for men to treat them as they will. The fact that most African Americans have European dna tells you all that you need to know about white men wanting and using women that they despise and treat like fuck dolls. I just can’t with the stupidity and feeble excuses that we are bombarded with everyday. Give me the out and out racists who proudly owns his/her views than the apologists and the what about group.

            Just saw RM and someone got their Pecker in the ringer now. The agreement they made with the SDNY to not get prosecuted was to cooperate and to not do “political” hit jobs for Trump. That is why Pecker is in a tessy because he is in violation of this agreement. I hope Pecker goes to jail and spill the beans on the orange Satan.

    • February 7, 2019 at 8:52 pm

      I can answer that……..from her own mouth. I always listen (Sirius) or watch Nicolle Wallace @4:00, then usually watch my local news. I was busy working in kitchen so when Chuck Todd came on, I didn’t change it right then. He said he was going to be talking to AOC. Thankfully, he had her on in the first segment. It was a long segment and for once, I have to admit (though it’s difficult), he did a very good job. And, wow, was I impressed with her. She speaks clearly and concisely and straightforward. No “wishy-washy”. The examples she gives are common sense. I did not agree 100% with every single thing she said, but that is the way it should be. To answer the question of why she isn’t on the Green New Deal–She’s already on 2 important/powerful committees and is also on 2 or 3 (3, I think) sub-committees. She said she felt if she added that committee, “I would not be able to do my job as a congresswoman.” She said she appreciated Speaker Pelosi asking her to be on the committee and she would like to be on it, then she ended with the quote. Felt like she was saying she would be “spreading herself too thin” and couldn’t give 100% to any of the committees.

      She’s young and I know she will make other mistakes, but overall, I was extremely impressed. I also watched a 5-minute video of her questioning 4 people in a hearing and OMG! The analogy she used to make her point that Donald Trump is a liar and a cheat and a grifter was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. It was in my Facebook feed, but I don’t remember who posted it. If I find it, I will share it.

        I just saw a clip of AOC in Committee asking questions about Prez power and laws that would hold him accountable which came out to be almost nonexistent. She had an unique straightforward clear delivery in a scathing manner. I was thoroughly impressed. She is a rising star imo.

      • February 8, 2019 at 8:59 am

        thanks..i am irritated that despite the fact that there are so many other outstanding freshman women of color…but the focus is on her…i wonder if it is because she calls herself a “democratic socialist”

          I found the video of AOC masterful questioning about campaign finance laws and corruption in DC. It’s 5 minutes. Someone who knows how to post a tweet here, check Ryan Knight @ProudResister.

          Can someone teach me how to post tweets here? 🙂 🙂 🙂

          • February 8, 2019 at 6:01 am

            It’s easy! Just click on the time stamp of any tweet. That will take you to a single view of the tweet and a unique URL. Then just copy and paste that URL here and the tweet shows up. Hope this helps but let me know if any of this isn’t clear.

          • February 8, 2019 at 6:02 am

            OH, and also: the tweet URL needs to be on it’s own line, no other typing before or after.

      Women will take over the House and Senate to overturn these laws against women health. I read a few days ago on this site that there are NO laws controlling male bodies. There should be none on women. What people do with their bodies medically is none of anyone’s business. Medical procedures should be between that person, their doctor.

    What do you guys think about the Lt. Governor in Virginia, do you think he should step down. i think we need for the claim to be investigate. If proven true then yes he should step down.

    • February 7, 2019 at 11:12 pm

      If you saw my comments from last night, you know my feeling on this. I agree with you–investigate thoroughly! In his case, there’s too many pieces that point to something not quite right about how all this has happened. Looks much like a right-wing hit job. They certainly have a LONG history of that. They think looooooooong term. There’s also some Dems in VA that would be helped/benefited by his departure.

      Just a reminder: The congressional districts get redrawn next year. The Republicans would love, love, love to find themselves in charge of the government in VA at that time. Just sayin’………….:( 😦 😦 😦 😦
