        Morning, TN. Have you had your reading session with your husband yet? I know you were collecting enlightening material. We had a discussion yesterday in our monthly Progressive meeting about how little people actually knew what was in the ACA, except for the broad brush provisions. We talked about the need for Dems to understand this administration’s achievements before we could defend them well against GOP/media propaganda.

          Not yet. I want to wait until we see Selma. Thought we could work it in this week but so far, haven’t. Maybe tomorrow.

            Will add this. Since PO’s visit here, our newspaper has had three excellent editorials — one about Insure Tennessee (Haslam’s way of doing the expansion), one about clean energy leading to good jobs for Tennesseans and one about the free community college issue. All three VERY supportive and excellent points. I know that he read them because I saw him. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ One small step at a time………

    Morning. Please read this interesting take on the back story of the Selma/Oscar controversy. The film award business is really arcane. Hope everyone is well this morning. We actually have sunshine today with temperatures over 25!!

    okay folks. Friend on Facebook shared this about George Soros: http://downtrend.com/vsaxena/george-soros-ferguson/. It’s about him funding the riots in Ferguson. I posted: SMH at some folks post and believe. 5 minutes later the person who posted the story commented –“Like what”? I plan to ignore.

      Being as I always thought a phone was meant to be used for chatting – can you just talk into it – and get it converted into a TOD post?

      This man was shot 28 times by white Chicago police, accused of attempted murder with NO evidence, then five years later tried again for attempted murder at 60 yrs old and sentenced to 40yrs in prison. Gov Quinn and all those that fought to get him released are angels of mercy. Those white cops, prosecutors, and judges were determined to make this to make him pay for driving the wrong way being shot and surviving. Our justice system is broken.

    I had no idea until yesterday that the Pacific Rim Trade Agreement was such a hot topic with unions who are calling it and the president every name in the book. It’s important that we all get the administration position straight because this is bound to come up in discussions and the scare tactics are being used to rile up union members. We need to be informed, remain factual and keep our cool when this topic comes up.
