    I don’t link to CNN much any more – but this is worth an exception

    I hope someone on that Jury is reading it

    “What the verdict says is that in this nation, in the 21st century, some white men still believe they have the right to intrude into the space of young black men and make demands. And if the black man is unarmed — with no weapon except his words — those white men can still kill him. And call it self-defense.

    All they need is a jury to buy it.”

      I sent Chris Cuomo of CNN a email about his interview with that killer.

        So Zimmerman want his normal life back, oh boo-hoo-hoo. I feel for the killer. Talk to Trayvon’s parents and I’m sure they will tell you that they would love to have their son life back. I guess we suppose to feel sorry for the killer Zimmerman. It was his decision to follow Trayvon, where he ended up shooting him and killing him. And instead of going somewhere and disappearing because the system let him get away with murder, he is on tv doing interviews wanting someone to feel sorry for him.

      That image, alone, shows what it would look like if the proverbial shoe were on the other foot, in this country. The fear in the white klansman’s eyes … the total lack of fear in the African-American policeman’s eyes.

      And the only righteous, brave and moral look was on the policeman’s face, where it should have been.

    Hello Nerdy W., Ms Chips and everyone! Meta has 42 with my vote…. hopefully more since then! She is right up there near the top! Thanks for the excellent posts! I haven’t been posting since coming to the States for a few weeks to help look after my Mom. Still reeling from the Dunn verdict here in FL, a complete travesty of justice. Wishing everyone a good night!

        Meta is now at 49! Two votes behind second place, which is currently tied between two entries. She is only 17 votes behind fist place. To all TOD people, I know we can certainly vote to put her in First place!

    One of the best twits by LOLGOP:

    Well, I’m off to get some shut eye, after I’ve read a little bit (reading is the only truly sleeping pill that works for me).

    All I can say after watching the first 8 episodes of this season’s “House of Cards” is I wonder what our President is thinking watching it. OMG, so many parallels to the GOP and this presidency in terms of some of the characters (Hillary Clinton SoS and others). But it is completely different where the VP goes totally off the rails. I just cannot IMAGINE being the president AND watching this. Way, way too close for comfort.

      i’m trying to decide if i want to start watching this series. will it make my grind my teeth? will i have to throw things at the screen? but mostly, how many bags of cheesy puffs will i eat? it’s a commitment, yes?

      February 17, 2014 at 12:41 am

      haven’t watched any of it yet;

      but your comment about the VP character makes even more thankful that BDF VP Biden and Dr. Jill Biden are very loyal and supportive of PBO and FLOTUS and that their families share common values of deep personal integrity and care for the common person;

    Should bed at this late hour – but I am dreading Monday (which is already here);

    this should be a great positive story to send me off to sleep;

    a good story to lift one’s spirits up about young people making a difference doing something which should have been done before – if only someone has thought outside the box;

      This picture is the exact reason why PBO needs to stick with Pete and not condone other photos. It is obvious that nefarious objectives are at work with the ability to photoshop in this age.

      Thanks, AMK, for sharing this tweet highlighting facts about PBO economic accomplishments.! It needs to be twitted and re-twitted over and over again! It’s truly amazing how totally ignorant most Americans are about President Obama’s accomplishments, mainly because of the unethical corporate U.S. media that’s focused on sensationalism, manufactured negative polls, and regurgitating GOP propaganda.

    • February 17, 2014 at 7:28 am

      thanks for this…

      but the real deal about the UE number is that it reached 10% and PBO brought it down….Boom!

    wow! meta is now in the #2 position, just 13 votes behind the leader with 53 nominations. the top 5 will then go to a final voting round for best food blog, sweets and baking division. i think if she wins, she is going to bake us a veerrrryyyy big cake, with cheesy puffs all around. yes?

    • 105 nathkatun7
      February 17, 2014 at 3:47 am

      Yes Indeed, Susanne! Her votes have steadily been increasing, while the votes of the leader have not budged since I last signed on to vote. I love and highly respect Meta so much. I know this wonderful TOD family can propel her to first place.

    This is a website for lawyers – not one that would usually get onto TOD – but a wonderful story about two young lawyers – health care – and a state dinner at the White House. Apologies if it has previously been posted – first time I’ve read the story

    How Did Two Young Lawyers Get To Have Dinner With The Obamas? By David Lat

    “It was bizarre, surreal — like a Dalí painting,” said Caleb Ballew. “It was one of those experiences where you have to be there to know how you’re feeling.”

    a quick note about Ethiopian Airlines – glad everyone is safe ;

    but for future reference :

    any person considering to hijack any of those planes in that fleet should remember that the pilots and co-pilots are senior officers in the Ethiopia’s air force who have standing orders to take hijackers out;

    Good Morning everyone…

    sipping my coffee before I head out….

    saw that MTP hosted another debate over Climate Change…the question is why Is the media giving the so-called climate deniers legitimacy…reminds me a lot of when the press gave high profile to the Birthers….they do us all a disservice…proving once again…that our press is more into sensationalism than informing the public
