    It never ends and they get paid leave for this atrocity. Yet they and the deplorables wonder why we protest.

    May Terence Crutcher’s soul rest in peace.

      This is horrifying – and all the media talks about is terrorism – yet they ignore domestic terrorism by police against US citizens

        GM 99ts.

        Beyond horrifying.

        Just heard about this on the radio (crickets from my MSM twitter feed) — f**king cops outright LIED.

        “Police said that Crutcher approached the officers after his SUV broke down on the road, but refused commands to raise his hands and reached inside the vehicle. However the footage, which was released Monday, shows Crutcher did have his hands up (main). It shows four officers surrounding Crutcher by his car when one of them – identified as Shelby – shot him.”

        This is WRONG in so many ways, yet doesn’t get the coverage it rightfully deserves.

        He had his hands up, was outnumbered by armed bigots, and was murdered in cold blood.

        DOJ will be overseeing Tulsa PD in the blink of an eye. Highly doubt that our true justice warrior, Loretta Lynch will hesitate in the least, and will take immediate action (I know legal proceedings take time, but will happen once all the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed).

        Credit to UK tabloid Daily Mail for placing this story at the top of their website, just beneath (of course) the NJ/NY bombing suspect.

      JER, what do you suppose Mark is going to *do* with himself once the Obamas leave office? He must have a really yucky life right now to focus so exclusively on each step they take NIGHT and DAY. Maybe he’ll write a few primary counting books.
      ” 1 = Pres Obama’s first Inauguration, January 20, 2009.
      2 = The Obamas had two inaugurations.
      3 = Like an average person, the President actually ate 3 times daily, when his job allowed.
      100 = He …………

      Countless times = He had morons like me counting how many steps he took and how many times he breathed in and out.”

      Mark is a world class stalker!

            And thanks for asking about Steve. Today, he went to his pulmonary specialist who declared “You are looking good, doing good … done!” after 2 years. We hope he’ll get the same fond farewell when he has his post-procedure follow-up with the surgeon next week. A mini-parade today, and a bigger parade next week! (He appreciates all of you TOD folk who ask about him!)

      I do believe you TOD ladies are here to remind me whenever it slips my mind, These magazines usually take a while to work their way to the shelves in my neighbourhood, so sometimes with past issues I’ve forgotten until someone else here picks it up. I’ll wait another week or so.

          Aha, so it starts today, does it? TY, A. Seems like it can only be a good thing to me but we’ll see.

          My plants would love to have you as a next door neighbour. Some of your watering would likely spill over, or else you’d simply take pity on them once in a while and wet them up. 😀 I actually have a friend whose neighbour is so obsessively garden friendly she waters both of their mini lawns because they share a space. My friend whispered to me last time I passed by, ‘She really needs to get a life.’ I asked her to offer my garden space to her neighbour as a treat but she didn’t. :/

            September 19, 2016 at 10:22 pm

            Your friend is right, her neighbor needs to get a life!

            My plants are extremely time-consuming (for me, at least — I’m definitely a putterer, think about rearranging them in pots, get excited when they have “babies” — which many of my succulents are doing right now… think summer is the dormant period for them, cooler/shorter days prompt clones, and they’re just so adorable), but worth it.

            And I have to stop what I’m doing when visited by hummingbirds and/or bees. Unfortunately, very rarely see butterflies 😦 .

              Well, she has a beautiful, green front patch bordered by lovely flowers and she definitely hovers lovingly over them, and maybe that’s her life. I saw her sitting on a stool, giving them ‘a bath’ one day shortly after my friend moved next door to her and did something I rarely ever do to neighbours – spoke to her! ‘So, you are the garden lady responsible for this beautiful spot, are you? It looks great!’ said I. She looked quite happy at the compliment. 🙂 🙂

    Still, the win was secured with a record low turnout. Just 47,8% voters made it to the polls – the lowest figure since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Even a massive 94.9% turnout in Chechnya had little impact.

    One official blamed the damp weather, but others argued that many Russians had lost faith in the system. They don’t believe their vote will count.

    “People understand that Putin will never allow real opposition to appear in power, so they close themselves in their kitchens,” former Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov told the BBC.

    In big cities like Moscow and St Petersburg interest was lower still – a disaster for the liberal opposition, which relies on such places to pick up votes.

    It seems that many people who took to the streets in anger at evidence of fraud in 2011 protested this time by opting out of the election process altogether.

      Even with recent changes, Donald Trump’s new tax plan is still a huge giveaway to the rich. But there may be one loser in particular: single parents. Despite his claim that everyone will get a tax cut, under Trump’s tax plan, some single parents would see their taxes go up by more than $1,000.
      Trump is raising taxes in three ways. First, Trump gets rid of the head of household filing status, which is currently available to single parents and some other unmarried taxpayers who care for another person. Under current law, filing as a head of household reduces someone’s tax bill by lowering the amount of their income that is subject to taxes. It does this by giving them a larger standard deduction than single filers. The standard deduction is a tax deduction set at a fixed amount available to taxpayers who do not itemize deductions such as mortgage interest and charitable contributions. A larger standard deduction means less taxable income, and therefore a lower tax bill. Head of household filers also get a different set of tax brackets than single filers, which increases how much income they can earn before their money starts getting taxed at higher rates.
      Under the Trump plan, unmarried parents have to file as single.

              Well, his main skill does seem to be his counting ability so I guess we could say he makes the best use of what he knows best. The one good thing I can say about him is that he doesn’t block you when you do take him to task, and I have some little respect for him for that. Toodle-di-dooo for the rest of the night.

    Lawrence O’Donnell covered a portion of Donald Trump saying at his rally that the terrorist captured for the NY and NJ bombing did not deserve to go get the best hospital service with the best doctors with meal room service then a lawyer for his crime. LO discussed what that meant as the alternative would be to let him bleed out on the street. It was sickening to hear DT talk as if our Constitutional rights should not be extended to all that we should pick and choose. It seems eerily similar to what is already going on with many police officers already. No wonder the Police Union endorsed DT.

    I repeat => each generation of the trumps is publicly perfecting the expressions and actions of arrogance, greedy, hatemongering and all kinds of way to demonstrate that you will always be a demagogue;

    hating “the other” seems to come so easily to them;

    today, the son is echoing the father and generating hate towards refugees and immigrants ;

    junior’s tweet about Skittles manages to dehumanize refuges and at the same time desecrate the memory of dear Trayvon Martin;
