A Tweet Or Two





Poor child. The consequences of horrific police brutality


Vile, disgusting, racist scumbag





The racist been fired. Life comes at you fast




Damn. Of course, when police brutality of minorities in England is taken into account, British and American cops have a lot to answer for





Bravo and congratulations, Juan Felipe Herrera. Rest in peace, Ornette Coleman


Good question




Food for thought





Oh, the irony. You built that, GOP


Thank you, President Obama. Yay, Texas!


The struggle is real









Yay, Zendaya! More here


Call the whambulance, disgusting dudebros



Ugh, WaPo. Just ugh











Rick Santorum is an idiot


President Obama and his team were way ahead of the curve. Smart

    Nerdy! This is some round-up. I will have to read it at least twice to take it all in.
    Massive thanks.

      For those of us not so overly stressed by the ugly dems battling their President and/or the looming deadlines for the SCOTUS ACA decision, not to mention the Iran P+5 Nuclear deal.
      Too much for me. I can’t even imagine how President Obama gets a wink of sleep or downtime.

      • June 11, 2015 at 7:40 pm

        I’m super stressed out right now. Reminds me of the ACA vote. SO sick of Dems and their hideous rationalizations, stooping to jerks like Trumka. UGH.

          I am sorry you are suffering too, meta. Yes. it is much like the ACA vote and the Hideous Summer of the Tea Party—2009

          • June 11, 2015 at 8:38 pm

            I guess it’s lucky for me that I have to be at UC Berkeley for a few hours mid-day and will likely miss the vote. LOLz.

    From Jan2015

    Here’s some of what the President actually said:
    So the question for those of us here tonight is how we, all of us, can better reflect America’s hopes…

    Imagine if we broke out of these tired old patterns. Imagine if we did something different. Understand, a better politics isn’t one where Democrats abandon their agenda or Republicans simply embrace mine. A better politics is one where we appeal to each other’s basic decency instead of our basest fears. A better politics is one where we debate without demonizing each other; where we talk issues and values, and principles and facts, rather than “gotcha” moments, or trivial gaffes, or fake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives…

    If we’re going to have arguments, let’s have arguments, but let’s make them debates worthy of this body and worthy of this country.

    GE all. Just a quick drop by. Actually have a little time for a change. Heading across our Northern border tomorrow and packing up for the trip.

    Glad POTUS is taking a moment. But I bet he’s also gonna work on twisting some arms.

        POTUS enjoys all of it. He understands the MSM as well as political emoprogs, wingnuts and righties have created an environment in which we don’t talk about the policy. We talk about how the policy makes us FEEL.

    To complete and end my “tonight in history” theme—–Game of Thrones seems to me to be based on Henry VII–the infamous Henry the Eighth’s father. So far as I know this opinion is mine alone.

    I may be among the minority that is really concerned about the domestic politics of China.

    it seems like there is a systematic purge going on in the ranks of the country’s one party.

    I feel as though the leader of China is using the instrument of anti-corruption, to get rid of his potential competition.

    Of course many of the people are happy because they are told that all these high-placed officials are facing charges JUST because of corruption.

    It seems so convenient

    Good evening, TOD! Nerdy, I’m going to sent you the bill for my new reading glasses! Thanks for the nightly cornucopia of goodies!

    The Mother Jones’ article on Chester breaks my heart; I have family and friends there, some of whom are quoted in the article. Chester is about five miles and a lifetime away from my home; if fact, some neighborhoods of Chester are a lifetime away from other neighborhoods in that very city. Thanksgiving of 1995, City Team Ministries were short of turkeys for their gift baskets; my sons and I loaded the trunk with our donation; when we arrived in downtown Chester, the boys asked “when was there a war here?” Puzzled, I asked them the genesis of their question; they responded that the downtown looked like my pictures of Beirut… They were right; it did…

    The Chester that I knew as a teen was a thriving city. The saying was you could quit your job before lunch, and be hired and working for a new employer after lunch. The sign on the train trestle read “What Chester Makes, Makes Chester.” Unfortunately, most of the industry left and with that the good paying jobs. The politicians used, and some continue to use, Chester as their personal patronage piggy bank. There has been some development — a casino, a prison, and soccer stadium; despite promises, very few of the jobs went to Chester residents. There has also been very little positive economic impact for the small business in the city — suburban folks that work at or visit the new development sites drive straight in and out of the city, they don’t stop for anything…
