That comment was entered on the iPad, but the iPad won’t allow comments via this medium of Replying to WP!! So, go figure- if anyone out there happens across WhenMightyPamelaWandered, gently tap her on the shoulder, give her a hug, and say, “Live Long and Prosper”!

    As it turns out he may not have any reason to visit Minnesota for the rest of the election at all: with the deadline looming, the state’s Republican Party is still refusing to add his name to the general election ballot.

    For reasons it hasn’t formally explained, but are most likely a symbolic protest against the fact that the erratic and offensive Donald Trump is the party’s nominee, the Republican Party of Minnesota has not submitted his name to the state so it can be added to the ballot. The deadline for major party candidates is this Monday, and if the party ends up not submitting Trump’s name, he simply won’t be on the ballot in Minnesota. He wouldn’t even be able to get himself added as a third-party or non-party candidate, because the deadline for that has already passed.

      GRRRRRRREAT PHOTOS!!! It’s nice to see all these pix that us TODDERS have seen at one time or another here at TOD over the years, collected in one place. Really, really hope Pete S does like a 5 volume set of coffee table books of our beloved First Family’s last 8 years.

        I want 8 volumes. One for each year! Of course I then need to get a much bigger coffee table, but it will so be worth it. I’ll just park myself on my couch with my coffee and never do anything else but look at his wonderful photos all day, every day. 🙂

    I’ve mentioned before that the Q polls often screw very white. So it’s quite the surprise to see Trump trailing by 10 today.

    At the end of HRC’s phone in interview with Anderson Cooper, he kept hammering her about holding a press conference.

    I’d rather the media continue to whine about why she won’t hold a press conference, rather than her giving in and then having to listen to “journalists” ask the *SAME* negative, attack questions over and over again about 1) email, 2) Clinton Foundation , 3) Benghazi, and 4) her faux illness. Do they think that if they change a word here and there or change an inflection or two, that it becomes a different question? We know it’s really all about the hope that one of them can lay claim to a “gotcha” moment or of getting some sound byte(s) that they can loop.

  14. August 25, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    Yeah, they really thought this one through….

    Here’s a 10-minute video narrated by @POTUS (if he doesn’t choose to encourage and develop young world leaders after January, he’d be in demand for voice-over work for sure [joke, he’ll be in demand for anything, anywhere, any time]).

    In an effort to make at least one company no longer have the ability to cheat students out of a proper education and tens of thousands of dollars, ITT Tech will no longer be allowed to accept students.

    “ITT Tech – a massive, for-profit college – is currently under investigation by 20 state and federal agencies for cheating students. The SEC, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey are all suing them for fraud. ITT Tech failed, again, to meet the scandalously low standards of its accrediting agency, but still sucked down a whopping $600 million in taxpayer dollars last year.

    Black Americans will not be voting for Trump; this was never a thing. White folks and those who think they are White (Trump and his ilk have clearly shown them that they are not covered by white privilege) need to get in formation and help us bring this thing on home for HRC.

    The press keeps hammering Hillary about not having a press conference because they don’t like having to expose Trump’s positions on just about everything. They would like nothing more than for Hillary to hold a press conference so they can dissect her every word. If I were advising Hillary, I’d tell her to continue to let Trump run his mouth and that there’s no need for her to say anything.

            Same here with the heat and humidity… Been stuck inside most of the summer; however, Blessed to have CA, so no complaints. Looking forward to the Left Coast meetup; just set the date, I’ll clear my schedule (not available May 1 – June 5, 2017; I’ll be out of the country). On Saturday, Terri and I are crashing JackieG’s Latina Fiesta; looking forward to meeting another TOD Sister! Enjoy the movie; can’t wait to hear your review.

    Do you all remember the young man from here who won the Courage award at the ESPY’S? His mom spoke about gun violence. Some good news from that sad and unnecessary death. Police arrested two people today and charged them. Sure hope they have all the “goods” on them and can make it stick.

    I could not over-look the stories dominating the media outlets:

    – the fake “outreach to racial minorities” dominating the media outlets;

    – Sec HRC’s speech about the openly racists campaign of her opponent;

    given the current utterings of liars, pundits, and know-it-alls, I thought this would be a good time to listen to PBO’s Race Speech he gave in Philly during the 2008 campaign;

    • 81 jacquelineoboomer
      August 25, 2016 at 10:47 pm

      I have a beautiful printed copy of that speech, which was handed out by local campaign offices. A treasure!

      • August 25, 2016 at 11:09 pm

        So do I; additionally, while cleaning out the office after the primary, a small stack of them were on the trash heap; needless to say, I rescued them… Gave some to each of the churches in my town and to every member of my family… Also gave my family this pic, taken outside the National Constitution Center at the conclusion of the speech. I was Blessed to be seated in seat E9, dead center on the podium; we he look straight ahead, he was staring into my eyes…

      Great response, J’OB! I grew up being taught that slave owners loved their slaves, but that did not stop them from treating them as chattel. I’ve read some heart-wrenching stories of loyal slaves who thought their masters loved them only to find out that their masters had no qualms selling them and separating their families, so long as it was economically profitable to to him. Breitbart and Ann Coulter love their blacks, but it’s the blacks who dare not challenge their ideology of white racial supremacy.

    It’s still astounding to me that Glenn Beck is against Donald Trump. Run for your lives, RWNJs, if even the crazies think Trump’s crazy.

      OK, I posted this too soon.

      Hoping that Susanne does see this, because PBO is ON HIS WAY to her state!

      From the article:
      “Obama will visit the protected area on September 1 to draw attention to the threat that climate change poses to oceans, traveling to Midway Atoll – a remote coral reef that was the site of a pivotal World War Two battle and is now known for its sea turtles, monk seals and millions of seabirds.”

      * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
      Having grown up in the San Diego area, am familiar with Midway, as there’s a major thoroughfare by that name and also a USN battleship.

      Looking forward to PBO’s final trip to Asia next week.

Bonus: yes, he'll be on Oahu this week to speak at the World Conservation Conference!! I love it when he is in the islands, knowing how he loves to be here.
