    COMING UP: Hillary Clinton (D) Campaigns in Green Bay, WI – http://abcnews.go.com/Live?stream=4

      Watched her in Madison last night on the SCOTUS, pretty darned good. She nailed it and got a great ovation.

        And the GOPers called her out for making “SCOTUS” political!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and of course the media agreed with the GOP.

        It would seem many of the GOP Senators now realise
        1. They are going to lose in November
        2. Any Scotus appointments by Hillary will not be as good for them as PBO’s selection. I am of the view that PBO has hit another home run with his SCOTUS selection.

      People may start to disassociate from Trump himself but they won’t disassociate from the thought process he has tapped into. That is where they are making a poor choice. The GOP itself, the individual voters, still can’t see the dead end in their thinking. As hard as it is to stand up to that stinking thinking in others, I am grateful not to have to try and confront it in my own heart. I am very fortunate to have connected in such a positive way with the President and also with his supporters. The positive connection idea is reinforced every day for me because of the associations I have forged over the last seven years. What a blessing.

        NoSpin, I actually did hike up two very low mountains – long enough time between the two for me to have forgotten the *STRESS* – and vowed *never again*. It was supposed to have been a *fun* group activity. The 2nd time convinced me that for me there’s more fun to be had reading a good book!

      GE VC.

      Belated birthday greetings, oh armchair nature-enthusiast. Sorry I missed out on the festivities, but I could barely keep up with PBO on his Cuba/Argentina trip last week.

      The angle of this photo makes it look treacherous, but it looks like there’s handrails on the wooden (?) trail — many people industriously toiled to engineer and build that trail — kudos to them.

      Also there’s only a couple of switchbacks which tells me it’s not that steep — have hiked in Glacier National Park up many more switchbacks (south-facing mountain in August when it was about 100F) — man, was I glad to get to the “chalet” on top.

      Here’s a belated BD present (which you’ve probably already seen, but this is closer to my neck of the woods — and I’ve never heard of it before [shame on me]). Google maps tells me its 133 miles away, midway between San Luis Obispo and Bakersfield CA (south of the general area where James Dean had his fatal crash):

        Thanks for the B-D wishes, Arapaho. Only this morning I was looking at my face in the mirror and thinking “I’m getting old”. 😀

        Yes, I retweeted that wildflower picture earlier as it was so pretty. 🙂 And, sorry no, even with handrails, switchbacks, or even elevators/escalators you wouldn’t get me anywhere near that hike, but you can go ahead and enjoy!

            Not true at all! I’ll have you know that I’m/was a nationally certified Level 2 sports coach before I decided to step back. Well, okay I have very little interest in professional sports, so maybe you can exchange the shirt for something more accurate. [She says apprehensively as she wonders if she should just hang tight to her 1st amk gift in case the exchange gets lost somewhere.]

    Malia & Sasha: The princesses we never thought we’d see

    Back in the ‘80s and early ‘90s, there was a slang term we applied to the more refined, upper-class young ladies of our community — BAPS. The letters of this acronym stood for Black American Princesses.

    ……………………………………………

    Today, we are fortunate enough to have real, live, Black American princesses. They are Malia and Sasha Obama.

    On television screens and social media time lines, we are treated to beautiful, professional pictures of our nation’s “first daughters” – Malia and Sasha in Cuba, Malia and Sasha in designer gowns at their first state dinner, Sasha and her classmates strolling across the tarmac with Air Force One in the background like, “Just me and my girlfriends!”

    We are seeing images we never thought we’d see – little brown girls internationally adored and adorned.

    When Barack Obama’s Black critics question, what has Obama done for us, specifically, this is what I sometimes point to. The Obamas have publicly provided us — and others — a social, cultural and political family model simply by them being them…

But THE MAJOR ASSHOLE said REPEATEDLY he would aggressively TORTURE PEOPLE AND TARGET the enemy’s CHILDREN. KILL THEIR CHILDREN. Then, somehow finally it gets pointed out to Asshole those things are ILLEGAL AND IMMORAL and??? “Oh, well we need to change those rules.” But we’ve moved on!

    Tim Wise also told Susan Sarandon off on his FB page:

    “Jesus, seriously? People who think electing awful will trigger the revolution don’t know history, nor are they remotely logical. Revolutions NEVER spring from things getting worse…not once. They always result from things getting somewhat better and yet not as good as needs be…so with Trump, things will get worse, and people very much unlike Susan Sarandon will suffer, and people will turn to fascism as the answer, not progressivism…wake the hell up. Must be nice to not have to worry about what happens, either way…this is why I distrust and despise much of the white liberal/left..because they say stupid things like this…”

    Right on, Tim!

    Michelle Goldberg weights in …..

    The results of a Trump presidency would likely be far less dramatic. They might just include the widespread persecution of undocumented immigrants, the appointment of Supreme Court judges who will jettison Roe v. Wade, the end of any federal action on global warming, and a ramping up of American war crimes. We certainly won’t see any expansion of family leave or early education. Based on what we’ve seen of Trump so far, we can expect him to use the powers of the federal government, including NSA surveillance, to target and humiliate his personal enemies, especially women. One thing, however, is sure. No matter what happens, Susan Sarandon will be just fine.

    • March 30, 2016 at 3:17 am

      The naivety of Susan Sarandon, and all the Bernie Sanders loyalists she seems to speak for, is absolutely breathtaking! Do these “holier than thou, purity progressives,” who are preaching doom and groom, realize how better of this country is compared to where it was in 2008? It’s true that the Middle East is still a mess? But when was the Middle East, since the creation of the state of Israel, never a mess? Only people suffering from Amnesia think that the current situation is worse than it has ever been before!

    LOL watching LOD on MSNBC and Dan Rather says he was not happy with PBO’s assessment of the press and what they should be about and DR said don’t tell me about being a journalist and he won’t tell PBO how to be president. I used too like DR but he is off his rocker like his friend Tom Brokaw. Then in the next breathe say how journalist have failed to cover DT by pointing out his lies just as PBO said. The 4th estate is not forsaken its responsibility it is just does not exist.

      Totally agree with you about both Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw. They need to retire to their horse farms. It’s a totally different world of journalism now – there’s some good and some bad in that part, but their comments no longer have any basis in CURRENT reality.

      The President was right, and they can’t handle it. Same as always.

      March 29, 2016 at 11:42 pm

      don’t tell me about being a journalist and he won’t tell PBO how to be president

      They have been telling PBO how to be president for years now and *he* hasn’t been whining about that. In fact, if they would do so in a professional manner PBO would have welcomed their analyses. They don’t get it. I don’t normally go there, but MO this Rather comment smacks a bit like ‘Who is this black guy to tell me about journalism?’ If Rather was being objective, he’d admit that President Obama, given his own daily experience with the media AND his obvious intelligence, is exactly the person to be sharing his media insights!

        Dan Rather. I used to like the guy. He is very troubling these days. Can’t quite describe it. Sometimes people are never the same after they have been targeted in the way he was by the Bush administration. Or maybe he is not the person I always thought he was but something is definitely off with him.

    The tweet above from Tim Wise is absolutely correct. The working theory of Revolution comes from a political scientist by the name of Jim Davies. he was my professor at the U. of Oregon back in the 60s. I took his class “Political Revolution”. A rich Hollywood actress like Sarandon likes to play in the drama of politics and play pretend with revolution. Real revolutions are often violent and brutal. And rich folk like her get taken down just like everybody else. That’s why evolution beats revolution every time. Bernie is just a relic of the 60s radicals, pretending to be a revolutionary with his rhetoric and his Che Guevara posters. He’s an utter phony who is selling mirages.

      March 30, 2016 at 6:57 am

      Selling mirages. There’s a lot of that to deal with and its exhausting. Just knowing the President is in office and inspiring us all to seek something integral and valid in each other and in the work we do for change is settling. God bless him for bringing an example of how this is all supposed to work when we work it.
