    Good Morning Family!

    Monday mornings are always so hectic on my job so this is the first opportunity I’ve had to post and respond to all the GORGEOUS photos of the President and SOS Hilary in Burma. The wonderful signs welcoming the President have reduced me to tears. I have never been so uplifted and proud of any president ever! We are so very blessed to have him.

    Thank you Chips for these amazing photos…the beautiful bright colors, the happy, warm and welcoming people of Burma…just incredible. I continue to thank you for creating such a wonderful, positive place for us to be.

    Oh and yes…my President is looking very fine in that shirt! What do you bet that these shirts will be the next fashion explosion! LOL!

    • November 19, 2012 at 12:20 pm

      We could only wish it would be a fashion explosion, Dakota, although I can’t think of too many other American politicians who would look good in something that ‘revealing,’ except maybe Biden.

Wish everyone in the US would open their eyes and see what the rest of the world sees in him. We are happy to share him as long as he stays safe. Thank the gods we won this election!!!

    I’m back to my sinus abscess and the resulting headaches, so I admit to not following TOD very much over the weekend, so this may be woefully out of date:

    Did you guys see Ken Burns’ documentary on The Dust Bowl last night on PBS? Can’t wait for the second part tonight.

    Although I admit to my political leanings affecting my judgment: watching these elderly witnesses of the horrors of the dust storms that lasted a decade and the clear, definitive science that this catastrophe was completely man-made: I bet all these people vote Republican, despite the clear message that common sense regulation over greed and the need for instant self-gratification is the only way to avoid these catastrophes and STABILIZE our economy and ecosystem.

        It’s really excellent and I highly recommend it. There was so much I didn’t know about this period in history and the personal testimonials were heart wrenching and very graphic, making the horrors of this experience come to life.

      I watched it one and half times, and will watch Part 2 tonight. Yes, and the locations—–all Romney states. Need we say more? Indigenous people knew the land. The buffalo grass was rooted five feet deep, thereby retaining moisture for cattle and sustenance for crops, all the while protecting the soil. Those people admittedly were greedy for wealth promised to them, and kept repeating misguided farming practices, causing their own misfortunes.

      I saw a bit of it and, like you, I was struck by the man-made aspect of it, and how, despite it being man-made, religiosity and superstition ruled the day — until FDR and the big bad government (along with those darned scientific experts!) had to step in with common sense and ingenuity. The more things change, the more things stay the same. 🙄

        We watched the Ken Burns Dust Bowl docmentary too. Since we live in Oklahoma, it hit home. We had watched Bill Moyers the hour before whose guest was Naomi Klein, who is a journalist concerned with climate change. She has been studying it for ten years, and is factual. The thing that got to us, was that she said Oklahoma is in the bull’s eye again for this warming. She talked about the green algae on our lakes last summer…..too hot temps for too long, and how our Senator, Jim Inhofe, is the big clmiate change denier…he says it’s a hoax. In fact, he was supposed to be at a conference about this subject, but couldn’t attend because he had gotten sick from the lake waters here with the green algae…..but still won’t acknowledge climate change. We have to contend with rank ignorance and science denying.
        Oh yes……President Obama and that shirt are quite spectacular.

      So sorry to hear of your sinus problems. I used to get recurrent infections at drop of a hat, even after sinus surgery. In addition to lots of water, Guaifenesin in high doses can help. Treatment for nasal polyps and eliminating as much mold as possible from my daily environment put me on the road to good health. Hope you get well soon!

        I only wish there was some way we could let her know we love her and are thinking about her…

          That has been my feeling too, Chi, but whenever I’ve asked Roberta in Mn if she was ever in contact we miss each other’s question &/answer. You cannot believe how often Sue in Min. comes to mind, and I think my ‘sinking feeling’ stems from the fact that the first time we missed her for a while she had been in hospital and had undergone serious surgery. I so wish there was some way we could know for sure how she is, or even if she knows we think of her often.

    At the end of the last thread, there was a comment saying that Julia Gillard is a racist. I didn’t want people to get the wrong impression of Ms Gillard. Apparently, there are some emails going around that are a confusing mixture of fact and fiction. http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/australia.asp

        I’ve also received this morning a long message, on The National Memo, of all things, a paid-for thing, that tells me to watch out! there’s a terrible Depression coming.Keep an eye on your investments. I’ve seen these scare messages coming mostly from places like NewsMax (which is far right wing), and from investment entities, and I doubt their veracity to say the least. I keep unsubscribing and they keep resurrecting. The way search demographics have become so detailed I must be looked at as an easy target — anyone as old as I am must have money to invest (what a joke).

          I find some useful information from the National Memo. They do have a few far left loons; and I know that Thom Hartmann is always saying we’re headed for total economic collapse. He is such an intelligent man on so many levels but he can go into the Ralph Nader-esque thinking from time to time: complete collapse will lead to a rebuilding of all civilization in a more enlightened manner.

      I’m just catching up, but my thought was, if Julia Gillard is a racist, she’s had a very strange way of showing it. Every time she’s at the same event the President is, she is “grinning and skinning” (as we used to say), and all up in his face. EVEN when she’s with her husband, and Michelle is around. I DO NOT trust her around our President. She acts like a smitten school girl. The Australians should be embarrassed.
      If she’s a racist, she’s being very selective about it.

    [Why does this sound like Bain had a finger in this, ahem, pie?]:

    “Hostess has been sold at least three times since the 1980s, racking up debt and shedding profitable assets along the way with each successive merger. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2004, and again in 2011. Little thought was given to the line of products, which, frankly, began to seem a bit dated in the age of the gourmet cupcake. (100 calorie Twinkie Bites? When was the last time you entered Magnolia Bakery and asked about the calorie count?)

    “As if all this were not enough, Hostess Brands’ management gave themselves several raises, all the while complaining that the workers who actually produced the products that made the firm what money it did earn were grossly overpaid relative to the company’s increasingly dismal financial position.”

            These are moments that will make our journey through this second term so joyful to lift POB up during these trying times with the GOPers. I love the “light moments,” especially after all POB has been through. This is the time to relax and take a deep breath as we prepare for our focus with him on the Fiscal talks coming up.

            Thanks Chips for our beautiful haven here to be able to enjoy each other and express our beautiful expressions with total respect for our wonderful POTUS. I really think that his intellect along with his beautiful human spirit gives us moments to really enjoy like “The Shirt.” It is what is inside that shirt, and we all know that, and that makes this so beautiful.HZ

      I laughed at that title too “live shirt updating!” Oh so great! If any newcomers happen to tune into TOD today for the first time they wil think we are all completely crazy here! It is a good thing Bob is still representing the real political issues of the country/world and still sending out non shirt related tweets! 😉 Press on Bob, we will all get back to focus with you soon.

        I’ve been quiet but throughly enjoying all the craze about “THE SHIRT.” Newcomers to TOD should understand that what’s is happening with “THE SHIRT” is indeed crazy, but it’s the “Good Crazy.” Besides, after all the serious and hard work by TOD members to help re-elect our great President, I think it’s perfectly fine to spend sometime having fun and appreciating their fine looking President.

            Thank you nathkatun7. We are a pure ‘offspring’ of our brilliant, compassionate, caring, peace-making, and hardworking POTUS. We know when to work very, very hard, and then when to relax a little and enjoy the beauty of nature and the goodness in people all over this globe. It comes with our great POB.

            He brought forth Change, and we are Guarding the Change with our beautiful and fineeeeeeeeeeeeeee President, Barack H. Obama.

            In fact, POB will get a joy out of his people visit here to see our lovely expressions. We Are The Change.
            Thanks for reminding all of us, Nath. HZ

        ‘If any newcomers happen to tune into TOD today for the first time’

        Oops! 😳 Wouldn’t you know, Loving, this is the day I chose to actively invite folks from twitter here! /head in hands/ I wanted them to see the lovely ‘rise and shine’ thread so I dropped a couple of tweets with the link.

        Ah well! What’s to do – you can’t change your family, so you might as well just love ’em as they are.

        pssst: Visitors, they are not usually like this…………only when pictures of the GQ President, or the beach boy President, or the husbandly President, or the casual President, or the caring President, or the …..you get the picture…. are posted. Not that I’m apologizing for them or anything. Heck, PBO’s a wonderful President, inside and out!

    Some good insight here in this Time article on why this trip to Asia is so important (even with everything else that’s going on)

    Holy Cow, if Michelle Obama was to visit TOD today, wow, she would blush……I tell you.

    The shirt is fitting for POTUS, no doubt. The man can earn a living as a GQ model, no doubt. But, but, but, at 51, POTUS has it.

    Brains, beauty,….oops, handsome, He’s got it all. He knows it. But he shows his stuff in an elegant way that is Not like…..hey look at me here. For that, it makes the man more approachable.

    Lurker in for a comment. What an amazing trip for our President. Chips, thank you for the opportunity for us to be right there with him through these amazing photos that you have provided. The world loves him…he’s our Shining Star!

    Love the title of the post “That Shirt.” Freakin-A, that shirt. Is PBO hot in that shirt or what…damn! I thought that I was hot-flashing for a minute, but realized that it’s due to PBO and That Shirt! FLOTUS is a blessed women…wow!

    Good thing mr. dotster left before The Shirt. He was already accusing me YESTERDAY of looking at Obama all “googly-eyed” ——said I used to look at him like that and now my only googly eyes are for Obama. He said he thought it would end after the election, but noooooooo!…….still googly eyed for Obama. (shhhhhhh—–there’s Obama in Thailand!) He would have really been disgusted with me at The Shirt reaction—–Quadruple Googly Eyes! A whimpering sound! And then a crumpling to the floor, fainting dead away.

    • November 19, 2012 at 4:19 pm

      Aah we’re are kindred spirits. My only fortune is that Mr. Zizi is abroad and so can’t see my incessant googly-eyed-ness. He thinks I’ve recovered from my Obama fandom since the elections ended. Don’t know how to break the truth to him gently
