    Good evening, TOD!

    When my toddlers ask where mommy is, I explain that she’s gone to heaven. That way they’re super-excited when she gets back from the gym.


    Nerdy, they’re hilarious (adored the graduation ceremony one too), thanks a trazillion!!!!!!

    hey. just a thought. We’ve been talking a bit about VP Joe and Father’s Day today here in TOD and just in case anyone wanted to send him a note here’s the link to send an email to the whitehouse. You can choose the Vice President. I just left him a note myself.

    If you have Oprah’s channel called OWN, a feature on President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper is about to air. It is called Rise: The Promise of My Brother’s Keeper.

    Airing today at 7PM EST/6PM CST.

    Afternoon / evening, friends.

    Busy day at Casa de LL. Missus is replanting tomatoes, because we’re idiots. Took Mother of LL to church, and are being repaid by her making us ropa vieja, black beans and rice, and fried plantains. Oh, and we should have a shitload of tomatoes in about 2 months, so salsa making party at Casa de LL later.

    Now that I have some distance from the horror, I hope to have a piece ready for here and TPV on Charleston tomorrow.

      Everything is sounding so funny to me, tonight! And I haven’t even been drinking. 🙂

      • June 21, 2015 at 7:45 pm

        Sighs. We neglected to punch holes in the planters to drain water.

          And put some stones in the pot to lightly cover the holes – keeps out slugs, etc, keeps the dirt in the pot and adds a layer of drainage. But I guess it’s too late – three times planting and I’d go to the farmer’s market for tomatoes.

    That Chuck Todd doesn’t understand that it speaks a lot that he and his Meet The Press team created that vile colorblind video before the Charleston Shooting says a lot about he and his crew. It perfectly captures how evil and soulless they are.

    They are the type who won’t say the n-word to your face, but will actively work behind the scenes for black people to continue to be disenfranchised.

    • 25 jacquelineoboomer

      I also don’t believe for a minute that he discussed use of the video with his staff. Either they decided (as in they must tell him everything to say or do, since he surely has no brain) or he decided and nixed any naysayers smart enough to want him not to use it. A guy like Chuckie will lie to save his own ass.

      It is the same Ugly Todd that uses the word OPTICS to opine on every disgusting wicked criticism he has ever uttered about Pres Obama.
      I suppose, OPTICS of Epic Failure Never applies to Chuck Todd?
      But then again, little, tiny, small minded Todd has a deep seeded complex……Overcompensation…….Yep…..that is it.

        I’ve been to two 8th grade graduation ceremonies for children of my son’s GF, in recent years. So incredibly boring I cannot even begin to tell you (Ha!). At both, the ringleader said “no cheering for individuals, cheer at the end” and my son and I cheered for all of them individually. We were far enough away from the boring circus ring that they didn’t know where the sound was coming from, and – of course – we weren’t alone. Made the damn ceremonies a lot more entertaining.

        Am I bad?

        • June 21, 2015 at 8:09 pm

          You are a DISGRACE!!!!!!!!!!! 😆

        • June 21, 2015 at 8:28 pm

          I just returned from my grandson’s 8th grade graduation in RI. The ceremony was straight out of Martin Mull’s “The History of White People in America.” The principal was trying to be “cool” and kept ending her shoutouts with “Holla!” About the third time I said “give me a frigging break” wasn’t until those around me started snickering that I realized I said it OUT LOUD, REALLY LOUD! One of the folks told me that the principal fancied herself to look and sound like one of the Real Housewives of NYC. Fortunately, my grandson is not easily embarrassed… LOL. And yes, I cheered when they called his name.

          • June 21, 2015 at 8:31 pm

            BTW, for those not familiar, Martin Mull’s “The History of White People in America” was an HBO mockumentary done back in the 80’s…

            HYSTERICAL. (Guilty pleasure: I actually know the exact NYC Real Housewife she’s trying to emulate. Ha.)

            You came from seeing “The History of White People in America” … the two aforementioned graduation ceremonies I attended were at a small school in a rural area of Central Illinois, where I live now. My son and I are from Central New Jersey. We’re sitting in the gym where they held the graduation, the first time I attended, and I noticed a banner on the wall. The name of their team was the “Farmers.” OMG. Nothing against farmers, but in a New Jersey city, you call somebody a farmer, and it’s an insult! My son and I were beside ourselves snickering. Not good role models, for sure.


            • June 21, 2015 at 9:09 pm

              The things we do for grandkids… As soon as I recover, I’ll give you guys a laugh about my week last week — the week from hell — all “1st world” problems. It helps to live by the motto “Semper Gumby!” LOL…

      This is a ‘must read’ letter, for sure, Alycee!! TY!!

      “To you, beloved Americans, I offer this humble suggestion: please learn something from South Africa’s history in the current crisis? Read Alan Paton’s Cry, The Beloved Country. Read Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom. Consider Desmond Tutu’s words and example. Read Michael Cassidy. Read about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Listen to what happened (and how the church responded) when a group of terrorists walked into St James Church and massacred the worshippers there in 1993.”

        This just reconfirms my assignment of Cry, the Beloved Country every semester for my college freshmen. This book speaks to today in Charleston, Oklahoma City, Ferguson…….I know I’ve spoken about it before, it is a powerful book.
        Now I will read the entire letter! Thank you Bob.

      WOW, Alycee!!! You’re on a roll!!!!

      I disagree with his assessment of President Obama, totally, but this, as hard as it is to read, must be stated over and over and over again:

      “That is why the judge presiding over the bond hearing saw fit to privilege the feelings of the perpetrator’s family above the experiences of the black families in the room. In every discussion of racial injustice – whether in South Africa or the United States – the first consideration is to white feelings. South Africa is in the midst of a national debate about affirmative action. My own university, the University of Cape Town, did away with race-based affirmative action on the grounds that qualified white students were being excluded in favor of unqualified black students. The mobilization of sympathy for these ‘poor’ white kids is blind to the structural exclusion of black kids by not only the admissions process but by a culture that says these institutions properly belong to Whites. White supremacy reproduces itself by a combination of entitlement to privilege and forgiveness, and an entitlement to black lives as whites present themselves as victims of reverse racism.

      I am told by those who know better that forgiveness is liberating to the persons involved. I don’t question that. I just worry that this expectation of instant forgiveness reproduces racism in the white community, and a denialist salve over the wound in the black community. But does the wound ever really heal because we forgive, because we tell ourselves we have forgiven? I am not so sure. In South Africa the results have been a combination of racist denial on the part of the whites and intense anger among young black South Africans.”

      i liked this article, but almost didn’t read it because of the huge headline– ‘ it’s a fog: how the white house responds to a massacre ‘– and odd photo of the president. am i the only one who thought they were saying pbo is in a fog when handling these issues?

    Subject: Remove the Confederate Flag From All Government Places


    Symbols of hate have no place in our government.

    The Confederate flag is not a symbol of southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism. On the heels of the brutal killing of nine Black people in a South Carolina church by a racist terrorist, it’s time to put that symbol of rebellion and racism behind us and move toward healing and a better United States of America!

    That’s why I signed a petition to The South Carolina State House, The South Carolina State Senate, and Governor Nikki Haley, which says:

    “Symbols of hate and division have no place in our government. It’s time to stand up for what’s right and take down the Confederate flag!”

    Will you sign this petition? Click here:
