‘Enough Is Enough, Through And Through’



Jacqueline OBoomer


The Michelle Obama Lesson Plan

She rose up and she stood up
And she said, “Listen here”
And she was our grandmothers
And mothers through the years
This was the lesson they all had tried
To teach us to take in our stride:



To rise up and stand up
To rise up and stand up.
Treat us with dignity
We are your women and girls
Treat us as equals
We are your diamonds and pearls
Treat us with respect
We are your soulmates and loves
Treat us as partners


When push comes to shove
Give us our due
As we return it to you
Rise up and stand up
Speak up and give a hand up ~
Enough is enough
Enough is enough, through and through

    I just received an email from Hillary.com. They have made a bumper sticker of FLOTUS’ quote “when they go low/we go high” and the campaign is giving to you for “Free” when you contribute $15.00 or more.

    Geert Wilders: Dutch Freedom Party chief will be tried for racial hatred

    The trial of Dutch anti-immigrant politician Geert Wilders is to go ahead after judges rejected a bid by his lawyers to have the case thrown out.

    He is accused of inciting racial hatred after asking supporters at a rally if they would like more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands.

    The trial date has been set for 31 October.

    Mr Wilders claims he is being “prosecuted for voicing the opinion of millions”.


    Enough is enough, already, indeed. And geert, gfy.

      BTW, Charlie Rose had her on his show the other night and it was pretty fascinating in terms of her career, her work for women’s rights, he time on the Court. I recommend a viewing:

      I’m glad she’s walking this back– it was shocking, quite honestly, to read her comments, and I assumed the context would explain her meaning.

    • 31 CEB
      October 14, 2016 at 3:40 pm

      I wondered about this. I was really disappointed in her response and could not understand why/how she held such a view and would give such a graceless answer. But then, I now wonder what does she really believe? Is this another case of an apology “if I have offended anyone” after the uproar that clearly shows great offense, but the person really meant what he/she said, or is it that she really did not know about Colin’s actions, the reasons for them, and the others who have followed suit? How was it possible not to be aware?

      • October 14, 2016 at 3:42 pm

        I’m curious, too. Why did she even answer if she wasn’t aware of the incident. And why didn’t she ask why?

        I guess for now I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and figure maybe someone just said what do you think of this thing where this football player refused to stand for the American flag.

    Another day and I’ve read two more accounts of women being sexually attacked by Trump. They are brave women, I’m glad to see that Gloria Allred and others are giving them legal coverage. Another prominent story with a recording of Trump talking with that awful radio host about how he lusts for emotionally disturbed teen girls like Lindsey Lohan. Hopefully the media will start using the appropriate terminology, “sexual predator”.

    This is a really fascinating conversation between Charlie Rose and John Carlin, who is about to step down as assistant attorney general for national security, discusses terrorism and cyber security. If you’re a tech geek or interested in spy craft or concerned about the cyber threats this country faces, you’ll find it a very absorbing interview.

      Sounds like he’s putting out a request for “someone” to come forward with an accusation that PBO was inappropriate.

      Trump plays dirty – so we need to send out prayers and powerful positive vibes around POTUS and FLOTUS ❤

      • October 14, 2016 at 5:08 pm

        Trump cannot fathom the idea that other people are not like him. He has no core, no authentic feelings and all his words and actions are moves in a game intended make him out on top in any interaction. He cannot conceive of the fact that other have motivations beyond beating him. He wonders why no one accuses Pres. Obama of this stuff because he believes everyone else is just like him.

        • 46 99ts
          October 14, 2016 at 7:35 pm

          He is used to men behaving like Billy Bush in his presence – he believes every man on the planet fantasizes about being able to do whatever they like to woman. Not even a thought of personal scandal has touched the Obama years – and the GOP searched and searched.

          This comment will have sent the remainder of the “undecideds” directly to Hillary Clinton.

        He can “put out requests (Putin)” all he wants but anyone who would be so dumb as to do that would get shot down so fast because of the lie which is all DT deals in these days.

    • October 14, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      What a spoiled child. He’s so used to getting away with things, he doesn’t know how to handle having to answer to anyone. It’s a wonder he hasn’t tried pleading “affluenza”.

      And the assaults are only a part of the things he’s having to answer for…Trump U; Trump Foundation; Tax Returns; Ties to Russia…most of which won’t go away once the election is over.

      Because President Obama is a gentleman who has integrity, morals and knows how to treat people well, even those who don’t deserve it whereas Trump is a sexist pig with no integrity, morals or manners, in fact to call him a pig is an insult to farm animals.

      Running to the church for cover? Repentance and expiation (naw!)? Trying to play the Catholics like he has played the evangelicals? Whatever he is doing there it has only to do with benefitting himself. The church should stay clear of this one, especially considering its own history of covering for sexual predators in the priesthood.

      In refusing to shake his hand – she says it all. She stands tall against his revolting behavior – on and off the debate stage. He is so busy encouraging more women to speak to his abuse – he will have nothing to say about policy at the debate – he will be buried.

      If they are going to go back and dig up these old 2008 campaign videos, they need to start playing some of Kelly Ann videos against Trump when she was Cruz’s campaign manager. Her videos are a lot more recent.
