    Bobfr!!! Thank you so much for posting these! I got my email invitation to the Grand Opening today…was planning on attending…and then…..my fridge decided that it was going to bite the dust. Defrosted everything…chicken juice, pork roast juice…ice cream….popsicles…..stocked freezer, too. Broke my heart to have to throw all that food out. I have spent the day cleaning out BOTH fridges…scrubbing and cleaning all that sticky mess…then just cleaning and organizing my house. I go back to work on Monday.

    Was disappointed to miss the opening, but I’ll make it down there between now and election day to donate my efforts:) Arizona turn blue? COUNT ME IN!!!

      This might sound perverse, but I’m waiting for my fridge to go out. They have so many new refrigerators with so many cool gadgets built in. My wife is sick and tired of me asking her lets to go get a new one.

        Well, this was the one that’s in my garage…a spare, as it were…for overflow things that won’t fit in the even older one that we have in the kitchen. I really don’t care about fancy fridges…as long as they work and are efficient, I don’t care. This was a mess…and considering that I didn’t really sleep all that well last night, this is the last thing I wanted to deal with today. Truly. That said, would it be wrong if I wished that your’s pooped out? Hope you get your fancy dream fridge:) I need mine to clean itself and cook dinner….if it can do that, I’d think about a shiny new one:) Good Luck!

    • August 6, 2016 at 6:33 pm

      So sorry df that you had to endure all that mess, as well as, miss the opening. I have no doubt you will have your ‘pail of blue paint’ and will be spreading it all over AZ!!! 🙂

        I hate to say this, but they better watch out, Breitbart’s will be around trying to say they are cheating, like they did for ACORN to stop their funding. They are relentless. But it is a grand idea and df, you are right, this should be happening all the time and especially during off season voting. We need to take back our House, Senate, State Gov’s and State houses also.

      • August 6, 2016 at 6:44 pm

        df, So very sorry you had to deal with that frig mess today……and after not sleeping well………throwing out all that food. Hurts, hurts a lot. Bless you and hope you rest well tonight.

    Friends, I am sharing a link about Stephanie Miller’s Sexy Liberal Tour. Her gang is taping a show on November 5 in LA to be shown in theaters across the country on Election Day Eve. I ordered my tickets this afternoon. Will go pick them up tomorrow. I always wanted to go to her show, but never been able to. She has done Asheville a couple times, but I wasn’t able to attend. As soon as I heard about this–and the night before the election–I was not going to miss it. Check it out.

      When I heard her announce I went online. They won’t be showing here in Missoula. They will in 2 other towns in MT but I will be working as an election judge so I can’t leave town. I am so disappointed.

      He is proud to not do his job. There are no sane republicans – don’t let the media try and tell you otherwise.

    • August 6, 2016 at 8:23 pm

      Dear Mitch McConnell, One of my proudest moment was doing everything I could to make President Obama a two term President. And don’t you worry about the Supreme Court seat, President Hillary Clinton will fill the vacancy.

    • August 7, 2016 at 12:56 am

      Wow! Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, is proud for being derelict in fulfilling his constitutional responsibility as a Senator. Sorry, but I really don’t see any difference between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump. They both hate President Obama so much that they have no qualms about destroying the country so long as that destruction is blamed on President Obama.

      And no money to address the problem. Just like aids in the 1980s – pretend there is no problem unless it impacts heterosexual white males. There are no sane republicans.

      Oh, df, I hope this story causes him to lose his bid for re-election. And I usually try not to think things like this for others.

      But it just galls me that he says he is strongly pro-life, but then he does nothing to make sure that life is enjoyable once the baby is out of their mother’s body. This is just so despicable to me. The undue hardship and heartbreak he is causing parents, grandparents, siblings, etc., with the birth of these babies, many of whom, if they live, will need constant care and medical attention for their entire lives, is just beyond my comprehension.

      I wish it were possible for one of the mothers of a zika baby to deposit their baby on Rubio’s doorstep and demand he care for that child, for even a week. This man, and so many other Republicans, are so utterly clueless that it truly astounds me. I am beginning to believe that the empathy part of their brains are non-functioning. What other reason can there be? I mean these innocent babies, and their families….I think of my little 8 month old granddaughter and I cannot begin to comprehend what it would do to our family if she had been born with this problem. Just the thought of it brings me to tears. I try so hard not to hate, but this man and his kind are really pushing my limits.

        Cd, I think we all try not to hate, but when someone like Rubio shows himself time and again to be without compassion or concern for his fellow human beings, then it’s impossible not to loathe them. I hope Patrick Murphy takes full advantage of his opponent’s heartlessness.

      This shit almost brings tears to my eyes, what a fucking monster this guy is. I’m not a religious person, but I do believe that there is a higher power and I hope this guy has to answer for his monstrous ways. That any woman, that any woman has to get lectured to by this fucking asshole that didn’t have the balls to stand up to Donald Trump when Trump disrespected him to his face. A real tough guy this Rubio is, that he has the fucking stones to dictate to a woman that’s already in a fragile state both physically and emotionally what she’s allowed to do to her own body.

        THIS…he’s not the only man that tries to weasel out of responsibility when it comes to a woman’s healthcare choice. They all need to STFU and have a seat.

      Thank you so much, AMK, for sharing LOLGOP’s great tweet. Mitch McConnell is very proud, along with the majority of his fellow Republican Senators, for deliberately refusing to fulfill his Constitutional responsibility as the U.S. Senator simply because a black man was President. Now lets go out there and work as hard as we can to make sure that on November 8, 2016, Democrats will regain majority control of the U.S. Senate, and the despicable Mitch McConnell

        Because of the brouhaha about wearing that flag pin, initially, he’ll never take it off. But I can see totally why it’s still annoying you!

      • 111 jacquelineoboomer
        August 6, 2016 at 11:31 pm

        Of course, knowing the President, he was proud to wear it from the first day, the others be damned. He makes it all an art form.

      I remember him saying something like It is what’s in your heart not what you wear, but not getting anywhere with that and the photo of him standing without having his hand over his heart like the other politicians he just started wearing the flag pin all the time. The hand over heart picture was misrepresented as being the flag salute and his refusing to pledge whereas it was actually the playing of the National Anthem. I never put my hand over my heart for that either nor did most of the audience in events. Seasoned politicians are just well aware how photos can be misrepresented. Sad, but it was just foreshadowing much worse to come.

    Dont’ know if anyone at TOD can help me. I recently updated my computer to Windows 10, and found that suddenly there was a little icon on the upper right hand side of my screen when I am on TOD that let me see people’s “likes” and “responses” to my posts. Never had that before and I really like it.

    Well I just loaded CCleaner on my computer and ran the program, and now that little icon and its posts are no longer there. Does anyone know how to get it back? Or what it is called so I can go looking for it on the Internet or in Settings? Thanks for any help you can give me.
