    Good morning. It’s a nice, rainy day here today. Every portion of an inch we get is gold!

    I see the President has at least three days of “meetings at the White House” this week. Guess, we know that something awesome and surprising will happen, it always does when those days are in the schedule.

    I think we are going to see a shift away from the right…..around the world. Their practices and theories have not worked…..people seem to be waking up.

    Everyone have a great weekend. Sue in Indiana…..I love what you are doing with Brent! He is a fortunate boy to have you in his life. Will be excited to hear about the tent πŸ™‚

    Good morning! So this was cool to see a few minutes ago. I heard the loud helicopter outside my window and saw Dearborn St blocked off by the police below and then noticed hard hat guys on top of the neighboring building. A little highrise maintenance job of replacing a generator or something. I was freaking out at how close the pilot was to the buildings as he set down the old generator on the street below in between all the highrises.

    Happy Weekend back at you!!

    Hey, people, DWS wants us to become CARD-CARRYING members. Can’t make this stuff up. Only way to describe this article is LAME. SMH.

    • January 31, 2015 at 11:06 am

      I guess this is DWS’ idea of leadership:

      “Last week was a big one for Democrats, and if you’re feeling as fired up as I am, I hope you’ll show it by becoming an official DNC member for 2015.

      Just pitch in $10 or more to become a member – we’ll even send you your membership card to make it official.

      Becoming a member is more than just a donation to Democrats. It’s a symbol of your special commitment to the President, our party, and the work that we’re going to do in 2015. It’s an investment not only in the next couple of years, but in the future of the Democratic Party for many elections to come.

      Plus, you’ll be able to go to all your friends and family, show off your membership card with pride, and declare, “I am a card-carrying Democrat!” (And trust me, that feels good.)

      Chip in $10 or more, and we’ll put your official 2015 DNC membership card in the mail:


      Thanks for taking the next step.”

      #lame. #childish. Did she even listen to his speech in philly?

      • January 31, 2015 at 11:31 am

        I deleted that one. But, the one I got from Nancy Pelosi I didn’t. Answered her with the message all of us have done……..stop cowering, grow a spine and act and talk like a Democrat AND asked, “How did running away from PO work for the Dems”?!

      Hear, hear, Meta. All week, leading to the end of the month it’s been Rah Rah Rah, send us the money. I get emails from all over the country, from Dems I’ve never heard of. Now, after putting on blinders and duct tape last summer and fall, they are all for having us sign their letters to PBO on how great his programs are. Nothing flames me faster than emails wanting me to “TELL President Obama what to do about…. blah blah blah”, as if I could say anything useful to the most brilliant, dynamic and hard-working President EVER!! ❀ 🐻 ❀

    DWS is very nice. I’ve met her before when she stopped by OFA for a pep talk back before 2008….HOWEVER, she is not the right person for this job at this time. Time for a change. Nothing personal. Just business.

      • January 31, 2015 at 11:42 am

        Ditto. And, I typed my comment below in, went back to my email and what did I find? Another email from DWS. Lord almighty! This has to end!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m very close to unsubscribing from all of them.

    • January 31, 2015 at 12:30 pm

      When she went on all the talk shows way back when I used to watch them years ago I thought she sounded like a pretty good fighter. But something’s happened to her. But it’s abundantly CLEAR that we need new leadership, so I’m at a loss as to what’s really going on here.

    Good morning, TOD! Found this awesome article, must share. Must read, and then DO SOMETHING!! Maybe if people wise up to how we have been processed into the medical system by our limited food options all our lives, we will begin to recognize we are doing the same thing to Mother Earth with our stubborn use of fossil fuels, and we all suffer, we all pay the increasingly high price. ❀ ❀

    Did any of you guys from the Obama Diary hear about this woman who was stop by the police, handcuff and some how she manage to get behind the wheel, I think of the police car and she took off flying, driving that car while handcuff. Anyway she got out of the car ran away, they manage to catch her and she was taken in alive and well. Now just imagine if that was a black man, or black woman, mostly likely they would have been shot dead by the police.. But this woman, white woman was taken into custody. Proof that all white people don’t obey the police when told too, but yet they are not shot dead.

    G’day fellow tyrants…….Major water works here as I watch the services for Ernie Banks. Very emotional.

    I’m also hearing reports that they have since stabilized her and she’s breathing….
