        Katy, I’m shocked that Trump treated you this way seeing as you and the rest of the MSM looked the other way when it came to calling him out on his bullshit.

          Oh my God, this morning on MSNBC there were a bunch of “journos” complaining how they “had” to treat DT as a serious candidate at the beginning because he was provocative, had a huge following, and avoided asking him “tough questions” because they did not want to considered the liberal media picking on a conservative. One guy said if they had not giving all their attention to DT they could have hammered HRC with more tough questions. I could not believe them whining about the monster they created. “If only we had been tough on DT in the beginning, maybe he would not have made it this far”…….

    GA TOD. Congrats LP on first. Thanks Nerdy Wonka for the musical interlude yesterday. I now have some new songs to listen to this weekend.

    Saw this article in the NYT today. Talks about election issues and mentions Georgia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina where some of our dear TODsters live. So thought I would post it for you to read. {{{Chips}}} {{{Yardarm}}}

    Working today, but I just wanted to step in and say “thank you” for the Summer Playlist thread last night. I was in tears after those DT comments about “2nd Amendment people” and I am soul-sick from all the hate and ugliness his campaign has encouraged, highlighted and generated.

    As I commented last night, the opportunity to share and discover new music on TOD was just what I needed to cleanse my mind and emotions and lift my spirits. After your thread and last night’s inspiring Olympic wins, I went to bed in a good mood for the first time in many nights.

    Thank you for all you do!

    This morning Trump said he was being sarcastic when he said that Obama was the founder of ISIS, but at a rally this evening he repeat that comment again about Obama being the founder of ISIS. America Trump is a nutcase.

    Thank you NerdyWonka, for everything every day. Especially the lovely portraits of our Love-ly First Couple, and the musical smorgasbord last night. I’m so out of touch that I don’t have a playlist. I tune in to the local FM stations, WNCU, a wonderful jazz station at NC Central University, and WCPE a privately run nonprofit classical station. I listen to them both a lot in the car, to have something going without the NPR station, which is sometimes good but too often political claptrap and worse. I feel so grateful to have all this inspiration, from POTUS and now from TOD family who are on it in terms of music. I’m starting my homework, my education! What a grand good idea. Love to Chipsticks, and gratitude for this wonderful enduring enlightening enlivening space.

      For my grandson who worries about being a lefty, this is far more important reason to feel good than seeing a AA president.

    VSB weighs in:

    Panama Jackson, 8/12/16

    You know by now. Simone Biles rolled into Rio and put 100 percent into every line she dropped. Simone Manuel went out there and didn’t know she swooped into the history books by winning the women’s 100m freestyle in swimming. They are some bad women. I’ll bet if you go into their purses and pull out their ID cards, they both say “Bad Motherfucker” on them. I’d put money on it.
    They were out in Rio sprinkling #blackgirlmagic everywhere and kicking ass and taking names, especially in the case of Simone Biles. In fact, let’s talk about Simone Biles.


    Simone must have had on a Superwoman t-shirt under her leotard. It’s one thing to win the individual gold in the all-around competition. That’s awesome. But she won so hard it was like Tiger Woods during his heyday when everybody else mostly showed up to play for #2. We all heard the stats that her margin of victory was so large it was bigger than the combined gap between 1st and 2nd place from like 1980 through 2012. And was even huge for the modified rules since 2006. All that minutiae is unnecessary; she whipped ass, took names, then whipped ass again. The girl is so bad she has a move that’s referred to as HER move, The Biles.
    I watched one of those videos that breaks down the physics of doing the things that gymnasts do. Those videos are awesome. But when you have actual scientists saying that the physics of what she’s doing is confusing? #cmonson


    And speaking of Blackness, Simone Manuel becoming the first Black woman to win an individual competition in swimming? Fam. We’re out here breaking 1960s barriers and shit. On some Disney-movie Pride THIS IS OUR HOUSE, COACH! steez. The fact that she didn’t even realize it at first made it even better. The tears were real. The appreciation was real, and the fact that she knows what it means is even more realer than the previous reals. I’m just proud. I don’t believe anybody thought that she was going to medal, let alone win, so the fact that she did is pure joy running through my heart. My heart doesn’t pump Kool-aid, it pumps for The Simones.

  23. August 12, 2016 at 7:46 pm

    When the scientists try and explain your greatness…

  24. August 12, 2016 at 7:51 pm

    For real ….

    back to work … hope all of you are well into #TGIF 🙂

    I was a fan of Booman for a long time – but the loonies took over his comment section during the primaries, following the Bernie conspiracies his alternate headliner. A few of them are still around & regardless of what the topic, they attack the democrats. Today in a post highlighting the stupid of Trump with a number of commenters explaining the history of said Trump – some had to jump in and start arguments. I was very pleased to see this comment from Booman

    “I’m too disgusted to argue with anyone who has anything to good to say about Putin. I’m not thought policing. I’m am however fighting the urge to purge the site of people who appear to be apologists for Putin. Regurgitated Russian propaganda is close to a banning offense in my book.

    So far, though, I’ve just decided to spend much less time conversing with people on my own site. It makes me sick to see what these primaries have done to this community. ”

    by BooMan on Fri Aug 12th, 2016 at 11:22:27 PM EST

    So I’ll keep reading his posts – but not so the comments

        August 13, 2016 at 3:09 am

        He’s not been known to “shitcan” anyone – free speech and all that. Zero to do with clickbait – he lost many more than he gained.

        No idea why the Berniebros took over his comment section. They are slowly fading.

        You been fighting with the cat today amk? I spent 30 minutes yesterday explaining why India has a much better democracy & method of voting than the USA.

        Started with a discussion of the disaster of our “online” census and how it has 100% stopped any discussion of computer voting. We stay with pencil/paper as we always should.
