    I saw a comment on Facebook this morning, and I agree with it 100%. They said that if Trump supporters can overlook the fact that Trump is a racists, sexists, liar, forcing himself on women, grabbing women private area against their will, calling women pigs, making fun of a disable man, picking fight with a gold star family, encouraging his supporters to shoot his opponent, threatening to arrest his opponent, threatening not to accept the results of the election, then we supporters can overlook this email so call scandal. Vote Hillary.

    Oh, and in case any of you wondered if Trumpism is alive and well in the Pacific Northwest, The Seattle Times has been rivaling Fox News in pushing his #WhiteSupremacy Agenda for more than a year ….

    ❤️ Pleased to announce a wonderful New Moon approaching tomorrow 30th October 2016: the conjunction takes place at 7.44 Scorpio, 1:38pm ET. 10:38am PT. It is packing some immense power, so anticipate and enjoy! ❤️

        Often this final stage of 4th quarter is quiet, without a great deal of ascending energy. Once the sun – moon conjunction is complete, we perceive (some of us!) a rapid increase in energetics, within, and around us.

    Saturday(or early Sunday morning) Greetings to everyone, near or far! It’s overcast & cool here, but hey, it isn’t snowing AND there’s nothing white on the ground. 🙂 🙂 Life’s good!

    I’m peeking in briefly to add some colour before heading out to our southern lake side airport to pick up Offspring for his ‘reading week’. Though it never is, sure hope the traffic will be kind when I hit the highway into downtown Toronto. :/

      Thank you meta and JER for posting this ceremony. I have a very special soft spot in my heart for the U.S. Navy, and love their shipboard ceremonies. Every summer while I was in college, and the summer after, I worked as a GS-3, clerk-typist for the Navy Department on Constitution Avenue, where the Viet Nam Memorial is now. Back in those days I made enough during the summer to pay for my entire first semester of school, plus my clothes, which at that time was a big deal.
      The people I worked with were classy, professional and smart. I worked in the ship design division, which was exciting. At that time they were working on nuclear powered aircraft carriers and Nautilus class submarines. So, this video gave me the familiar chill, the same as when I went to the piping aboard ceremony.

    Good Morning TOD

    We are in GOTV mode so my presence iwill be scarce here for the next week 10 days.

    Also, I’m not sure if this is done in other states but when we vote in my county one of the poll workers always announces in the hall very loudly when we have a 1st time voter. Although there was no line to vote this morning the hall was full with voters and that announcement was made 4 times when I was there. It always gives me great joy to hear that someone is voting for the 1st time.

    Have a great weekend and remember all the rest is just noise. No one that we are calling to GOTV is concerned about emails. Folks have already made up there minds at this point.

      There’s something about Comey that I found unsettling – the last go-around – and now this. During the hearings, he seemed to be taking it personally, looking flustered, tired, maybe off track. He seemed to change some of his answers when questioned, and nixed others. Now he takes this action, against the warnings of the AG that it would be unseemly to do it this close to the election, issues the letter to Congress in one day, then issues a warning/heads up of sorts (“might be misleading”) to FBI employees. Something’s not right in his thinking (maybe over and above any political reasoning he may or may not be following). Even high-ranking military are sometimes relieved from duty for “lack of confidence.” Hoping the President and Attorney General dig in there, and find out what’s going on with him. Truthfully, I think he needs some type of evaluation, before something worse happens.

      Also, that sad-puppy-dog look on his face doesn’t help much.

    A few threads back someone posted a link to an 8 minute video of Akala, the rapper, on a British talk show. The level of intelligence in this young man blew me away, and I started watching other YouTube videos of him speaking. I found this one of him speaking at Oxford Union in England to be mind blowing, as I never learned the history he talks about.

    Also a few threads back Prettyfoot58 wrote about her recent experience at the new Museum of African American History in Washington DC, and how profound it was for her. I realized it might be really interesting to many of you to see this video of Akala’s talk at Oxford Union. (1hr,16min)

      I watched this video. It was riveting. I plan to watch more of his lectures. I also plan to spread the word.

      I felt so empowered. I walked around with a smile all day.

    // Sasha Obama is too young to vote in the upcoming election, but her fast food order appears to show she supports Hillary Clinton.
    The 15-year-old first daughter was caught grabbing lunch at Z-Burger in Washington, DC on Friday, as the restaurant was running a special promotion for Clinton supporters. All customers needed to do was use the password ‘I’m with Her’ to get a free burger. //

      Joy had interesting comments…

      but there is no bringing the racist white vote back into the Democratic fold….unless there is #TruthandReconcilliation…folks do not want to admit that…and there can be no #TruthandReconciliation without a reckoning with “RACISM….there is no way around it

    Relieve this motherfucker of duty right now, Comey has got to go. Send this fucker packing; President Obama should fire this guy publicly. I’m taking about have Comey come to the east lawn Monday morning with the press in tow. President Obama should pull out a white glove from his pocket and slap Comey across both cheeks and tell him he’s dismissed.

    Good day TOD! Nerdy, thank you so much for posting the Navy ceremony. FLOTUS seems to be really invested in that boat! Not quite as dramatic as when she christened it but wouldn’t have missed it.

    Then there is this. These are the Trump fans. No words, don’t know whether to laugh or cry. So instead I’ll make some calls for Hillary.

    Sort of off topic

    To stay away from emails, the FBI director and the orange horror, I have been binge watching “the great British bake off” Series 7 on youtube
    The full episodes usually get taken down – so when I find them I watch quickly.

    To reduce the stress – watch it – I can’t bake – at all – but love this show – Mary Berry is everyone’s great Aunt teaching the children in the kitchen 🙂

  47. October 29, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    Via Booman,,,

    And Clinton will have to live with Comey because a president cannot fire a FBI director, as they are confirmed for ten year terms

    • October 29, 2016 at 6:22 pm

      Maybe us, private citizens can make ton of noise calling for him to tender his resignation. He has lost the public trust at large, completely.

      • October 29, 2016 at 6:38 pm

        it is simply interesting that he would disregard advice from a Black woman who happens to be the AG of the USA….wonder why he did that….ohhh i wonder why…sometimes this stuff is so so…SO….
