    We went to the HRC speech this afternoon in North Liberty, IA – long lines, Secret Service security reviews, and a 75-minute wait. But they actually started on time! 🙂 HRC was introduced by Cecile Richards, who I think is awesome. Great event. Only 7 days, 21 hours, 47 minutes until the Iowa Caucuses! https://twitter.com/HillaryforIA/status/691386915606568960

      I wish HRC the best and I too love Cecile Richards – she’s fierce and she needs to be given the shit she has had to endure.

        Cecile fights for all women – facing down the GOP, the media and the liars and she still carries on. PBO has her back & I presumably Hillary will as well.

    Cam already he knew the outcome of the game before it started….who needs pre-game warmups…let chill with Future & Jeezy 😎

      Wow! Cam Newton and Carolina Panthers have been dominating some good teams. They have to be a favorite going into the Super Bowl. I really like the fact that he gives away those game balls to kids in the stadium, and each time he does it he forfeits $25K in fines from his own salary. So I have read.

        They are currently -5.5pt favorites…that was at the end of the 3rd Q. I don’t know if it has changed due to Thomas Davis LB, breaking his arm 2nd Q, the availability of Roman Harper S (also injured in the 2nd Q) and DE Jared Allen (who was put on IR for this game, but could possibly play in 2 weeks) That 25K fine story is some dumb sports blogger who wanted to get some shine and went viral….you are only fined by the NFL 25k if you throw the football into the stands, not if you hand the ball to kids like Cam does.

    Great Review of the Movie of Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson’s first date!
    Sundance Film Review: ‘Southside With You’

    JANUARY 24, 2016 | 05:54PM PT
    Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers are terrifically cast as younger versions of Michelle and Barack Obama in Richard Tanne’s disarmingly romantic walkabout.

    “We have to let go of judgment,” a young Barack Obama tells a group of frustrated community activists, encouraging them to place themselves in the shoes of those they’re up against. While most of the intended viewers for “Southside With You” are probably already inclined to listen to their president, it’s nice to think at least a few non-supporters in the audience might be moved by the spirit of empathy that suffuses this soulful and disarmingly romantic snapshot of Obama’s fateful first date with Michelle Robinson on a summer day in 1989 Chicago, long before either guessed they’d someday be president and First Lady of the United States. On the surface a mellow and agreeably meandering “Before Sunrise”-style walkabout, Richard Tanne’s writing-directing debut deepens into a pointed, flowing conversation about the many challenges (and varieties) of African-American identity, the need for both idealism and compromise, and the importance of making peace with past disappointments in order to effect meaningful change in the future.

      I’m just not ready to see anybody “play” Barack Obama except Barack Obama! I’ll catch up with all the portrayals at a later time, but I’m happy with any good reviews, in the meantime.

        I thought I was the only one who thought like this, JO’B, hence I said nothing. It doesn’t matter how good an actor/actress is involved, it all just seems like ‘make believe’ and too much too soon for me. Indeed, why settle for the ‘play’ when you have access to the reality?

    Here’s the Bo/Sunny conversation in that top photo.

    Bo: Chill, Sunny, it’s SNOW! Haha!
    Sunny: Can’t you tell this dude to get me off the leash, Aaaaah?
    Bo: [with paw on Sunny’s shoulder, sings]:

    My late husband and I started dating about the time the song Sunny was popular. We always considered it to be our song.
