    Such beautiful photos, Chips. It’s startling to remember that Sasha was really very small just a short time ago–she’s such a tall, beautiful young woman today. And the photo of our President welcoming tiny Kennedy Alexander just makes your heart ache.

    Good West Coast morning Chipsticks & TOD family.

    A lot going on this weekend, thanks Chips for posting the President’s hilarious quips from last night.

    I’m afraid to ask – what’s the score ManU 3…Tottenham?

      Linda, I hope AG Holder starts doubling down, getting all sorts of lawsuits going and putting his Civil Rights division on high alert. Make life so hot and uncomfortable for his opponents that they welcome Loretta Lynch with open arms. By the way, no white male candidate for AG would have been treated in this disrespectful manner, IMO.

    The leader/Tool/Prop of the #47Traitors was/is a Harvard Graduate…..and a Rhodes Scholar? Wow. And part of my Tax Dollars paid for his education? Please, I want my Money back. The guy is so clueless…..he doesn’t know Geography. Tehran is the Capital of Iran. This guy is beyond embarrassment.

    The truth is that they are not alone.
    2-3 yrs ago, Dr. Rachel Maddow did a piece on TRMS……but it was about Alabama. I have no doubt that this is prominent in just about every state…..GOPers have made cutting taxes their religion…..then ripping poor and minority communities are how many of these local gov’ts are funding their punitive/racial/divisive system. Note the beneficiary are never those they are supposed to serve and protect.

      Wow.

      I really hope it helps Israelis realize that peace and compromise is the solution. I hope this very bold gesture by Pope Francis pushes things in the right direction, and doesn’t create a backlash that would help Bibi crawl over the finish line in the election.

    16,000 of 21,000 are under some sort of punitive felony charge in Ferguson, MO?
    Now it crystallizes why voter turn out is as low as it is in Ferguson.
    Charging folks, most would interpret that as; Not Allowed to vote…..
    So shameful. This is why folks have got to speak up, use Referendum and demand change wherever they live.

    So now within a hour, an arrest will be announced by the Police in Ferguson with respect to the shooting of two cops. I hope the Toon above or in the last post is 1001% accurate. Militia or Anarchist is my guess.

    As she’s always enamoured of goose/geese, this goose-y mention seemed like the poi-fect way to greet Chips Chica this afternoon!

    How-di-doo, to the rest of all you all! Hope your Sunday has been progressing quite quietly and calmly, and with lots of whatever makes you happy.
