    Bringing this from The People’s View. It’s an interview with Hillary Clinton by an Australian comedy team done while she was still Secretary of State. It’s lovely and funny and shows she has a quick wit and a great sense of humor. The comments from the news team at the end are perfect and I wish our news people were this open-minded.

    Is Donald Trump’s Campaign Hurting His Business? Trump Hotel Bookings Plummet Amid Insults, Protests

    There’s no such thing as bad publicity, so the saying goes. But it appears Donald Trump may be starting to prove this idea wrong, like much of the conventional political wisdom this year.

    It turns out that bookings at Trump hotels — at least those made through the travel site Hipmunk — have plummeted since this time last year. Bookings at Trump hotels over the past three months have decreased 59 percent from spring 2015 levels, according to an analysis by Priceonomics released Wednesday.

    I am in the National Airport waiting for my plane to Denver then home. Had a wonderful visit with my cousin. But the time spent in DC with the other TODders was beyond compare. I love each and everyone of you. All of you are part of my family. Also those who couldn’t be there we will all meet. There will bore meetups. If not before we will meet when the Obama Library opens. Now I am going back to catch on all the posts I missed.

    Hello TOD. I have been a constant lurker for quite a while now; but I have kept you all close and constant in my prayers. This is my only go-to place on the web that I absolutely have to check in with.

    Chips, you, your mom and family are in my prayers. It is a very good thing for you to be with her. I just returned from being with my best friend as she took her last breath on June 15th; she was at peace. Two days before when she seemed to be really laboring to breathe, she told me it was not as bad as it looked and sounded. That was a blessing for me. My cousin told me it was like I was holding God’s hand and her hand – I like that.

    May God Forever Bless and keep you for starting this wonderful place. And the special gift that is Nerdy Wonka who has kept the roof over this special community of commentators who have formed a special secret place in my heart, (because special is the only word that seems to work!!!);
    I know there is a special place in heaven for the great TOD meet-up!!

    The right wing haters are already complaining about the First Lady trip to Liberia, Morocca and Spain June 27-July 1st to promote Girls Education. I read were some of them are talking about the fight against Childhood Obesity is a failure. I understand were this is coming from, their hate for the First Lady. Because I do not understand how anyone would think that a problem like childhood obesity would be solve in four or five years. It will not, it will take time, but we must start if we give a dam about our kids health. I know the haters are going to hate because they have nothing better to do.

    From a CNN piece:

    Trump entered May with $2.4 million in the bank and, save for the $14 million he’d raised through largely unsolicited donations throughout the course of his primary campaign, had done little to set up an aggressive small-dollar or large donor operation. Instead, he’d floated his primary efforts through $44 million of loans from his own bank account.

    Or, another way to look at it: Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican facing a tough re-election in November, had more than $13 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter of this year. Senate candidates — even those as proficient in fundraising as Portman — shouldn’t be more flush with cash than their party’s presumptive presidential nominee.

    Another question: why do American tax payers have to pay for Israel largest defense package ever?(meanwhile, it actually takes away from our defense package $$$ for our defense purposes).

    Why is the Whitehorse under critique for issuing a veto order for said Bill?

    Why doesn’t the news report on this…?

    (((Dear Chips))) my thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom. May her light always shine in your heart. Thank Nerdy Wonka for doing a Fantabulous while our Chips has been taking care of mom and hopefully herself too. I have been lurking mostly due to technical problems on both computer and phone. I loved all the coverage of PBO vacation in the National Parks. I remember all the places I stood as those that the Obamas stood on their trip to Yosemite. If you ever get a chance to go it was a memorable trip I hope to make again. I can’t wait to hear of the D.C.TOD’ers Trip next month. It looked like everyone had a blast.

    Another one bites the dust!


    After sending out a tweet Monday dancing on ex-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski’s grave, top adviser Michael Caputo admitted the tweet was “too exuberant” and resigned his post with Donald Trump’s campaign.

    When news broke that Corey Lewandowski had been ousted from the campaign following months of discord with other top staffers and Trump’s adult children, Caputo tweeted, “Ding dong the witch is dead!”, an allusion to the famed “Wizard of Oz” villain.

    In a letter addressed to top aide Paul Manafort and Rick Gates and obtained by CNN, Caputo asked that his resignation be effective immediately.

    GA/GE TODville.

    Good summer solstice, first day of summer to all.

    Being the “nature girl” I am, love celestial events and the culture and rituals associated with solstices and equinoxes.

    I’m part of the high pressure system baking the US southwest now (outside thermometer in the shade says 106.8F, but humidity is only 14%, so it’s tolerable in the shade. Highs in 80s forecast for the remainder of the week. 🙂

    This year we have a bonus, a full moon to accompany the summer solstice, first time it’s happened since 1948.

    Here’s some lore about this year’s ‘Strawberry,” ‘Rose” or “Honey” moon (wonder if that’s why so many weddings were scheduled for June, back in the day?):

    BTW. I could care less about the chaos happening in the #TooUnhingedForAmerica campaign (re-posting from yesterday):
