    Ain’t it the truth, NW!!!

    And, from the very bottom of the previous thread:

    Dear NW and Donna – Inspirational, and a lovely way to remind all of us that even a month is not enough time to recognize and honor the vastness of the contributions that people of color have inextricably woven into the fabric of America.

    Thank you!!!

    Twitter is a festival right now. Will McAvoy is giving a master class on the complexities of Ukraine/Russia. GG’s sugardaddy has been accused of being a CIA front. It’s all delicious.

    I wasn’t to familiar with this case until recently, but it will make Citizens United child’s play. Also, the first instance I can recall of a camera getting snuck into the Supreme Court. We are going to have to mobilize on this one……….

      Next time, SCOTUS will have a strip search before entrance.

      Remember last year, they stipulated that No Protesting outside their Court Building.

    And so…let me share! Went to Trader Joe’s tonight to grab a couple things and as I get to this major intersection right before the store, I see a motorcycle cop on the corner…we NEVER see them here as a matter of course….I thought it was odd, but went to the store and got what I needed and came out….I look up and see a helicopter hovering over the same place, which normally means that the cops are looking for suspects……then I’m in a long line of traffic and I see many, many police cars and SUV’s speed down the blvd. in front of me with their lights flashing and all moving at quite the clip ( hauling ass) down the road…I saw a black SUV…the ones that look so familiar to us….I’m pretty sure that I witnessed VP Biden’s motorcade zip right by me!!! I was so excited at the prospect…he stayed right up the road from me last night….and I didn’t even know it! Literally 5 minutes from my house!

    Allow me to get on the soapbox for a moment.

    I know many of us are less than enchanted with the DNC/DSCC/DCCC. I share your frustrations.

    But as I said in my post earlier today, politics is a game, and winning is all that matters.

    Those orgs can leverage contributions and money in a way that individual campaigns cannot.

    All that matters is keeping Harry Reid as Majority Leader and giving Nancy Pelosi back the gavel.

    So, a plea from your friendly neighborhood Liberal Librarian: swallow your pride, hold your noses, and give. If PBO can do fundraisers for them, we can support them too.

    Off my soapbox.

      Have to agree with LL on this one. Principles are all very fine, but they do not win elections, and money is what greases the wheels of elections. I gave and my gift was to be doubled. We HAVE to keep Reid as Majority Leader and get Nancy back as speaker! The President must have a Democratic Congress to work with, not one that works against him. There is too much to do.

    College professor makes clear the insanity of guns being allowed on college campuses—–a grand idea which is spreading like wildfire in an increasing number of states. Also saw that there is a proposal introduced in the Indiana legislature this week to allow guns in cars in high school parking lots. The demented reasoning was that it would protect parents who are picking up their kids, assuming, I guess, that all parents are armed when they pick up their kids from after school activities and athletic events. So—-ok in teens’ cars too. Stop the madness!

      I have been hearing this for years.

      There are more registered Dems than TBGOPers, yet we continue to politically allow the TBGOPers to run our government…..why?……Not enough of Us vote every election cycle.

      I started voting in 1988 and I have Never not voted ever since.

      I just wish that those who really want things to change and retire the TBGOPers permanently.

      Sorry but I’m not buying that prediction. The paranoid, ignorant, conspiracy driven, racist, religious, anti-science people in the US will always have an active wing in the GOP. And they ALWAYS vote. My parents were very active John Birch members in the most liberal of states back then, Minnesota. None of their relatives or friends or neighbors bought into their propaganda but none of that dissauded them from their passion for their extreme right wing idealogy. There is no difference between the John Birch members then and the Tea Party today. And I can’t count how many times I would read about the John Birch Party’s imminent demise.

      Frankly they aren’t losing the fight. They’re winning it. Never before in the past 30 years have women’s rights been under attack in so many, many states as they have been since 2010. Did anyone see Rachel Maddow talking about Texas tonight? 30,000 unwanted pregnancies have been reported due to the lack of access to birth control. 30,000!!! And the last abortion doctor in the Rio Grande gave up the fight just today and said he will no longer perform abortions or, what he has been doing since he couldn’t get admitting rights to perform abortions he was performing “managed miscarriages” in which he medically aids women who had tried to do the abortion on their own and had life threatening complications.

      I don’t know why articles like that are written. From the article: “However, in the last ten years the Christian right’s power has been steadily eroding.” Really?? Really?? Tell that to the thousands of women all over the US who are no longer allowed to make their own decisions about their own bodies now because of all of the new laws written by the American Taliban in the state houses.

      “There will be no sound of trumpets to announce the end of days for the Christian right as a viable political movement, but the end is coming. In fact, it may already be here.” Total bullshit.

    A lovely Friday to my Chips and TOD family. ((((((((((( To my grandson, Danny))))))))))). I am so pleased that POB still can maintain his calmness in all of the disrespect and mad people who come into his space. However, President Barack Obama will cut the lines to the crap speakers. These foolish people will never learn. They are messing with the wrong man on all level.

    Now, I am one to give as much time and funds as possible to help us get the gavel back into the hands of Nancy Pelosi as our Speaker along with taking control of the House in great numbers to accomplish that. I also want to make sure that I work as hard as possible to keep the Senate with Harry Reid as our Leader.

    We have so much more work to help POB accomplish so much on his agenda, and this agenda is for the change, hope, and opportunities for so many more people who should have these as our brothers and sisters. So I will hold my nose personally and do what I can to help others of like minds to help our president and his administration move FORWARD for Opportunities to be able to live with freedom and dignity as one of us.

    I know that time is moving, so I have made my pledge to do my part. I would hope that others will do whatever is possible in your space to help POB. We will not regret it. We have to look at the major players here. POB is a good and decent man, and he and VPBiden work so hard for all of us each day. So please think hard about what this will mean for millions of people in our nation to see some more great things happen for them.

    I will not ever tell anyone how to spend their money as far as donating, but I know for a fact that POB is doing all that he can do get the House back and keep the Senate solid for all Americans. He will work to the very end to help even if some of our own representatives and senators have not always stood with him or behind him; but remember POB always focused on the long game. And he just need us to put on our team uniforms, running shoes and get our spirits in oneness and win this big election in 2014. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{ Love my TOD family}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}HZ

    Thanks Chips and Nerdy W., and All of the brilliant minds who keep our TOD family alert and lovingly working together. I love this beautiful place so much. It is a beautiful calm, informative, and uplifting, respectful place of support for POB. Thank you all for all that you do HZ

    Just got back from a formal governor’s debate with all seven of the Democratic candidates who will be running in the primary. Of the seven, three are top contenders–McCord, Schwartz and Wolf. They would all make good governors, but Wolf is the one with megabucks and is getting statewide name recognition. Despite all the polls showing Corbett’s unpopularity in Pa, this will be a tough race and what we need most of all is a fighter. I wish four of the lot would drop out now and the race could focus on the top three, but it looks as if one other person will enter the race even at this late date. When we are struggling to find good candidates to run for the US House, it annoys me that all the talent is focused on one office. Pa has a very late May primary, so the rivalry and bickering is liable to continue for some time. SIGH!

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been placed under house arrest and forbidden from using the internet or receiving visitors.

    The house arrest is for two months, but can be extended.

    Investigators accused him of violating the terms of a suspended sentence from an earlier case.

    Navalny, a leading opposition figure and anti-corruption campaigner, has dismissed the charges against him as ridiculous and politically motivated.

    He was given a five-year suspended sentence for the theft of 16m roubles ($450,000; £270,000) from a timber company in 2009.

    Officials said he had repeatedly travelled outside Moscow, in violation of the sentence.

    He was also charged with resisting arrest at a rally on Monday evening, at which hundreds of other activists were also picked up by police.
