    Terrific as usual Nerdy. There are no words to describe the full legacy of PBO. Just wish GOP would stop lying and getting covered while lying. As an outside observer it just boggles my mind.

    Having attended several events for PBO, I can tell you that it gets quite hot and stuffy when you are standing around a whole lot of people. When I attended one event for him at USC, I was outside at the Quad and had to leave the front of the crowd and go to the other side of the street to get fresh air. I say that to say, that a young girl just had a issue just now while standing behind VP Biden and there was an issue at Clemson too.

    Watching VP Biden at these two events makes me so much more sad that he is not in the race. Those young adults that he is imploring to stand up to rape and to participate in the voting process, couldn’t wait for him to leave the stage before they crowded to take a picture with him.

    • November 10, 2015 at 8:09 pm

      I love and admire VP Joe so much. He would have been a remarkable POTUS and I still feel a sadness about this. I miss seeing him in the limelight every day…….when he gives these speeches, he’s really in his zone. I so hope he is content and ready to continue his good work after 2016.

    Would be nice if the media would shout very loudly that the reason PBO has been unable to do certain things is because of the stupid in congress. Would also be nice if a debate would address such issues

    hahahaha – who am I kidding – Trump will get congress to do every last thing he wants – as per the US media

        Me too, Meta. I also love the black and white nature of the picture and the fact that it’s a close up. It shows the lines, gray hair, laugh lines, integrity, wisdom, compassion, well earned sweat and tears, strength, courage, and brilliance of President Obama.

        It’s a face rich with depth and character.

        • November 10, 2015 at 8:56 pm

          PRECISELY. Every bit of this.

          I am drawn wholeheartedly to the B & W contrast and the real nature of his face. He is impossibly handsome – we’ve seen him in photos, videos on a daily basis but here he is in rich detail. TBH, it reminds me when I saw him here in SF in 2011 and we shared a spontaneous really deep laugh and then he hugged me – so I was close to his face and it somehow seemed different than what I had been used to seeing – there was the full relief of freckles, a few wrinkles, the depth of his eyes, the ready smile that displayed gorgeous teeth, the contour of his lips that is truly unmistakable…..the really stunning availability of his personality and character. His face is expressive but also reserved, as though he has so much to say but will he himself decide when to say it. Apart from his immediate charisma, there is the knowing that here is a man of remarkable depth. In a way, there’s no end to what his face can express.

          He himself wrote a very moving essay about Lincoln’s face. Maybe one day I’ll do the same about him. It’s a very, very rich subject. Honestly – the things he’s seen……

    90 million! If you subtract retired folks, children and women who choose to stay at home with their children – how many workers are left – that is one BIG lie – this media is built on lie after lie after lie

    Hello TODers.

    I need your opinion on the following:

    As part of a team building event a group of workers went to the movies. They went to a theater that has two branches on different sides of the city.

    After the movie, there’s a killing at one of the movie theaters.

    The supervisor for the workers who is white, sent out the following text:

    “So apparently someone got shot at the xxxx on W street today!!!!!! Um So may be it is ghetto”

    One of the African Americans texted back and said:

    “What makes it Ghetto(sic)? because someone got murdered….”

    Another worker, a young white girl text:
    “Well yes….”

    The African American screened shot the definition of Ghetto for Google which read:

    noun
    1. a part of a city, especially a slum area, occupied by a minority group or groups.

    verb
    1. put in or restrict to an isolated or segregated area or group.

    The supervisor texts back:

    “I think ghetto as in gang, drugs and shootings.”

    The other white girl referred to above, screen shot this definition of ghetto

    “word which rich white girls describe almost everything that’s not clad with lilly polos and pearls. ”

    “Look how ghetto I look” Muffy said as she put on gucci sunglasses.

    At that point the African American and another worker asked to be removed from the text.

    What do you guys think about this exchange?

    Just peeking in on TODers. I had been busy the last few months helping my sister-in-law tend to my oldest brother who lost his battle with cancer on October 26. His funeral was a week ago today. I’ve lost three brothers in the last four years, so my two remaining brothers and myself are reeling, but we’re hanging in there. I hope to return to being a more frequent visitor in the near future.

    I’ve got this godawful RWNJ debate on, in the background. It’s godawful. The two whining the most, from my POV, are Jeb and Trump. Big babies, not used to waiting on others or being called out. All of them seem so juvenile to me … ALL of them. One of the creepy moderators is already looking disgusted, and that’s saying a lot.

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    Morning everyone. Happy Veteran’s Day…thank you to all the veterans here for service to our country! The WH is waaaay ahead of this. As always, they walk the walk.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/11/11/us-usa-veterans-whitehouse-idUSKCN0T00D720151111#Zieuh6iVxPI7AG4w.97

    All recent U.S. military veterans and their families will now be offered in-state tuition rates to public colleges and universities throughout the country, the White House said on Wednesday.

    Announced in honor of the U.S. federal holiday Veterans Day, which fell on Wednesday, the change is part of President Barack Obama’s “steadfast commitment” to military families and aims to make sure veterans can both access and get the most out of higher education, administration officials said.

    Officials also announced the launch of a revamped comparison tool to offer veteran-specific admissions statistics, which aims to help applicants better evaluate programs, and a new effort to curb deceptive enrollment tactics used by schools aiming to recruit veterans.

    Cecilia Munoz, a top domestic policy adviser to the president, said while Obama is pressing his administration to push these changes forward quickly, he is also calling on Congress to move forward on three pieces of legislation to help improve veterans’ education.

    “These pieces of legislation will really ensure that veterans have the opportunities and assistance to … realize the American dream,” Munoz told reporters on a conference call.
