    As an adoption counselor working in the foster care system, I am sooooo proud of this young man. He is the one that was removed and put in custody of grandma and later into care, right?

    Video snip (bringing over from the last thread):

    Obama jokes about graduating and Michelle Obama’s hair

    President Obama got big laughs at Morehouse College’s rainy commencement ceremony in Atlanta. He said he would join the graduates in the rain if he could, but first lady Michelle Obama would not. He also joked about graduating and event security.

    President Barack Obama told graduates of Morehouse College Sunday to take the power of their example _ as black men graduating from college _ and use it to improve people’s lives. (May 19)

    ALL of my tweets to the MSM and to the GOP gets blocked.
    What did they do flag me or something?
    At any rate, strange how they work in tandem!

      Jovie, if you go down your TL, you should be able to see your tweets. Sometimes Twitter doesn’t show certain tweets from the other person’s TL – I’m not sure why, but you can see them all in your own TL.

      Mention what you would tweet and I’ll tweet it to them. I am not good at writing the words but I am a great retweeter.

    • May 19, 2013 at 3:24 pm

      It doesn’t look like they are blocked since they are all in your timeline. https://twitter.com/Jovie141 They don’t show up in the MSM or GOP TLs unless they in fact retweet or reply to your tweets.

    • May 19, 2013 at 3:49 pm

      Jovie,

      I’ve seen tweets from MSM where they ridicule tweeters with an egg avatar, so maybe that’s why they have reacted this way. 😦

      I think you’re an Apple man, so don’t know the steps for those products, but on a PC, you could save a favorite photo from the Dept. of the Interior to your PC, then go to “settings” on Twitter and upload that photo as your Twitter avatar.

      Or whatever pic floats your boat. You may have better luck with these jackals in the future.

    Alumni President said this at the end (as he inducted new graduates into the Alumni association):

    Rain don’t stop The House
    Thunder don’t stop The House
    President Obama rocked The House
    But nobody stops The House!

      Much as we all dislike Terry McCauliffe, we can’t let Virginia go to a far right radical governor and Lt. governor. Cuccinelli is a Tea Party candidate par excellence and this Lt. gov. pick is off the charts. They both need to go down in defeat. Virginia has to go blue in 2013 (they’re in off year cycles) and 2016.

      Excellent tweet, LP. Worth featuring the Jay Rosen analysis in a future TOD thread, for sure!!

        Thanks Bobfr…will do! His post is especially relevant b/c of who he is…for people who don’t know, he teaches journalism at NYU, and is a media critic that the industry pays attention to, unlike Howard Kurtz.

        p.s. had you in my head when tweeting #jonkarl instead of @jonkarl……read someone yesterday had their account suspended b/c a verified account reported them….they found out who reported them it, was JON KARL!!! LOL….

      UTA, thank you for tweeting to Jon Karl’s boss.

      Crickets on his timeline about Karl since his lies were uncovered. He’s now tweeting about the Powerball winner, just like you’d expect an executive under duress to do.

      Also, forgot about that idiot Rick Klein, who really is dumber than a tree stump.

    Wonder if Jon Karl’s source and AP’s source are one in the same?….just asking

      At least this shows he’s getting a lot of heat, Forus. He wants it to go away and thought he could do this with a half-baked ‘regret.’ Now he’s edging toward ‘apology.’ It’s up to us (and fellow journalists) to keep the pressure on. Nerdy Wonka’s tweet above to ABC telling them the whole network can’t be trusted after this was right on. The longer they tolerate Karl, the lower their credibility as a network (not that they have any to begin with, but let them think that).

      And the clueless media continue to harp on PBO’s “scandals” which matter only to the MSM echo-chamber.

      MSM absolutely fail to report from a perspective other than white privilege. They don’t mention how many other (white) Presidents have consistently encouraged non-white youth to strive for excellence.

      Someone needs to remind all MSM that most people are tired of hearing news from this perspective. Diversity is *interesting* and educational for everyone.

    President Obama just finished speaking at the Blank event and is taking some questions without the press before heading back home. A little later than his original schedule, but still pretty early. I still had CBS livestream on and was surprised to have him suddenly on.

      Wow, dudette. I hope this gets a lot of headline news, but I’m sure it will be buried on the back pages. I wonder if this was a Republican judge.
