    Hi, TOD.
    Here is what I logged on to post.

    The New York Times took 2 weeks+.
    But this morning they got there.
    Headline, “Timeline for a Body: 4 Hours in the Middle of a Ferguson Street”

    Now verbatim, paragraph 4:

    “The delay helped fuel the outrage,” said Patricia Bynes, a committeewoman in Ferguson. “It was very disrerspectful to the community and the people who live there. It also sent the message from law enforcement that ‘we can do this to you any day, any time, in broad daylight, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

    Chips, what time is ManU playing soccer in honor of Danny’s birthday? And will I be able to view the match on Univision? If not, when where? Thanks and good west coast morning 🙂

    • August 24, 2014 at 12:37 pm

      They’re playing at the moment GGail. Well, I’m using the word ‘playing’ loosely – they’re 1-1 with Sunderland with just ten minutes to go 😥

        Thanks Chips, I am able to view the score, but can’t find free viewing online. I don’t think 1-1 is such a bad thing. Buck up ole girl 🙂

      Raise your hand if you expect Fox to tell the truth. They tell their made up truth and the idiots that listen to them is just as wacko as they are.

      I was pulling for Mo’ne, and I was pulling for the Chicago team. At least one of them reach the championship LL game.

    Any congratulation from POTUS or FLOTUS to the Chicago Little League team for reaching the championship game. I have a feeling the team will be invited to the White House, win or lose today.

    HEADLINE: CNN Gets Punked By Fake Cop: Quake Was ‘Rumbling From Howard Stern’s Butt Crack’

    //CNN on Sunday failed to check the credentials of someone who said he was a San Francisco Police Department official, and then said that the recent earthquake was a “rumbling from Howard Stern’s butt crack.” Just hours after a magnitude 6.0 earthquake rocked the Napa Valley region of California, a CNN host introduced someone named “Adam Sure” as the “PIO of the San Francisco police.” // (Read more…)


    ROTFLMAO…that’s what happens when CNN fails to vet their “sources” on their dash to report a story at all costs….Paging Jake Tapper with his “Josie” witness, and Don King with his “dark-skinned males” Boston bombers reporte.

    For anyone who think that murdering black men and teen boys here in this country is some new thing, remember Emmitt Till, the 14 year old who was visiting family when he was drag out of his bed one night, beaten and murder, body toss in a river. What was his crime? They say he whistle at a white woman. How many Emmitt Till were they, that we know nothing about.

    Waitwut? Suge Knight was shot? He must have enough metal in him to constantly set off detectors.

    “We will forever remember our heroes—the guys who died defending our freedom. But we know that from now on, there is no South, East, and West of our country. There Is Ukraine. Period.

    …I just spoke with the coordinator of IR [Information Resistance], who hosts a few refugees from Donbas at his home. I quote his words: “Today is the first time they will be celebrating independence day, and mind you, on their own initiative….” No matter how pathetic it sounds, but this is the moment when a united country is born.”

    Hi TOD. Happy Birthday Danny! And a belated Happy Day to you Chips. I’ve been lurking and not commenting because I have too much first hand experience with police over-reach, and the games the media play, dating back to the 70’s. I said a prayer way back then that I would not turn into a cynical bitter adult. I don’t believe I have as my sense of humor is in tact and I am keeping hope alive.

    I thank everyone who comments here, and all the Bts who post, I feel my thanks alone are insufficient for all you add to the quality of my life.

    By the way, looks like we are coming up on 27 mil. hits soon. Love you guys!! ❤ 😀 😎

      Oh, jackie! I read earlier that you had a great turnout and the rain stayed away for your event yesterday:) I was so happy to hear that. From your wonderful post, it sounds like everyone had a great time and you got some business taken care of with voter reg. AWESOME. I know what a huge undertaking all this planning is, so it was great to hear that it all went off without a hitch:)

      Well, lookee here! 🙂 🙂 I am so happy for you, JackieG! I just re-entered after hours away, and zeroed into this section of comments (actually was speeding down to see if a new post was being sneaked in 😉 ) and there you are, with excellent news!

      1. Great weather for your fiesta latina!!!!

      2. Your first twitter pics!!!!!

      Just wonderful!

          That comparison made me laugh out loud, JackieG! *You* did it! And I’m pleased as punch, plus just grinning that you had good weather yesterday. I missed your report as I was outside for ages fighting with my lawnmower. Both mower (can’t get it to start) and lawn (enough grass I could prolly lose myself in) won so I was not a happy camper coming back on line. *Your* success cheered me right up! 😀 😀

    GOP Firm Interviews 200K Voters Per Month
    “The conservative political data firm i360 is polling more than 200,000 registered voters every month in an effort to offer Republicans unparalleled voter turnout capabilities in the midterm elections and beyond,” the Washington Examiner reports.

    “The Democrats have been at the forefront of collecting data on prospective voters and using the information to drive turnout, far outpacing the Republican Party’s data-mining efforts. But i360 believes it has turned a corner, with company officials asserting that the firm’s access to proprietary survey data on millions of Americans offers Republicans an advantage in the competition to sway public opinion and influence the vote.”

    Roxy and Allie ( our rescue mom and daughter) send their homemade liver treats to Danny. They love his pictures and comments. They have not learned to use the computer key board yet. So I am posting for them.

    Thank you TOD for being here to support and nourish a community of Obama supporters. You keep me sane and I do not feel so isolated.
