      wait, didn’t many of them vote for this pos?

      • February 4, 2017 at 2:03 pm

        Probably some of them did. And I’m angry about it. But at least now they are protesting, and maybe that will have more of an impact than those than the protests of those who didn’t vote for them and would never vote for them anyway.

          Two weeks after Republican Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 presidential election, the USA’s teachers unions are wondering what happened to their chosen candidate — and how so many of their members could have voted for her opponent.

          Despite early and eager endorsements of Clinton by both unions, the nation’s school teachers and other school workers contributed substantially to Trump’s Nov. 8 win.

          How substantially? About one in five American Federation of Teachers (AFT) members who cast a ballot voted for Trump, the union’s leader estimated. Among the larger National Education Association (NEA), which comprises more than 3 million members, more than one in three who voted did so for the billionaire developer, early data show.


          Same case with union members, military, police unions, border control thugs etc.

          sorry, not feeling the sorry for them at all.

    Britex Fabrics is a very old school upscale fabric shop in San Francisco that offers couture fabrics and findings. It’s been around since the 50s and is considered somewhat of a landmark. I LOVE what they did in their window!

    If the executive orders have been flying out of Donald Trump’s White House so fast and furious over the past two weeks that you’ve suspected he doesn’t know what he’s signing or who even wrote them, it turns out you’re one hundred percent correct. The source: Donald Trump’s own mouth. In a bizarre Oval Office scene which aired live on television this week, that’s precisely what Trump admitted to.

    The incident consisted of Donald Trump opening up the folder containing an executive order, professing not to know what it said and pretending to read a bit of it. He then asked the woman standing next to him, who wrote the executive order, to explain to the cameras what it in fact said. By the end of the clip it became clear that he had no idea who the woman was, or what her name was, referring to her hesitantly as “this very special person.”

    It now seems apparent that every financially corrupt wealthy person in America is now being allowed to custom-write their own executive orders making them richer and the rest of us poorer, and Trump will just go ahead and sign it. By the way, the woman in question just stole your 401K.

    Even with the looming threat of a repeal, more and more Americans say they support the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

    A poll released by Public Policy Polling on Thursday showed that 46% of Americans said they support the ACA, while 41% oppose the law.

    Additionally, PPP found that 62% of people polled said they wanted to keep the ACA and make changes to it, while 33% said they wanted it repealed and the US to start over with a new healthcare law.

    “Obamacare continues to become more popular the more talk there is about repealing it,” PPP said in a release.

        No Entry


        • February 5, 2017 at 3:45 am

          Why? Babe, you need sleep. That’s standard in every airport on the planet pretty much. You cannot get into secured areas without a ticket and screening. (Departures.) That Arrival door is for people who just arrived by air, not ground, and went through customs. There’s no entering back into customs and the terminal through the exit doors. Not even domestically from the baggage area back to where the gates are. Most airports don’t allow you into baggage claim if you didn’t just get off a fight. Long gone are the days when you could meet someone at the gate.

    New documents confirm that President Donald Trump retains a direct tie to his business interests through a revocable trust now being overseen by one of his adult sons and a longtime executive of the Trump Organization.

    Trump is the sole beneficiary of the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, which is tied to his Social Security number as the taxpayer identification number, according to documents published online by the investigative nonprofit ProPublica. And Trump can revoke the trust, which was amended three days before his inauguration, at any time.

    Instead of “All I Do Is Win” I think of “All I Do Is Lie” …someone should do a spoof

My niece also took a photo outside EPA & told her Mom that she was going to run that agency one day! She’s 10. I’m just loving this! Don’t know how to post the letters here. But it made me so proud!

    hell TOD, I don’t know how to do this quickly but I know that this community has some creative folks. here is my request:

    – remember the photos & video of:

    – then-Havard-Law-Student Obama making the crucial speech at the protest;


    – then-IL-State-Senator Obama protesting the Iraq war?

    I wonder if copies of these can be combined with images of the:

    – current protestors or today’s homegrown demagogue?
    – PBO being sworn in as POTUS or doing his official duties in the White House or else where

    I think that this gentle reminder of citizen-involvement and how this defines the essence of a person and could carry them to a previously-unimagined future;

    I feel that these images tracing the path to greatness would be especially important to young people who may not know how their voices and current involvement could change the course or world events;

    anyone taking this on?

    I don’t have a TV, so have NO IDEA how the past two weeks have played over those airwaves, but unless it’s Fox, doubt coverage hasn’t been good for DJT.

    I think this reporter lives in DC suburbs (not certain, though):

    And not sure who WWR’s US clients are, but seems to me that only the 24% confederate flag-waving “earth is flat” DJT supporters could possibly think DJT financial EOs yesterday were a good idea:

      BobFr, I’m still trying to figure out why this ad gave me a sense of disquiet. Posted full version quite a few threads ago w/ a comment. On top of my sense of disquiet, the title of the video sat awkwardly in my space: Born The Hard Way. I appreciated that they’re trying to show how newer European immigrants were treated, but a more powerful message from Busch would have been to show how, from that experience, he’s actually worked towards diversity in his companies. If at all.

      Aside from the fact that this pipeline is stupid & wrong… this is not only the right thing to do- considering the history of our country w/the military and native Americans.. but it’s also quite brilliant. I say this because the optics of attacking vets for oil will be very ugly and I believe it will upset most Americans… put that on tv like they had the Viet Nam war on tv night after night.. and folks will not tolerate it. Unfortunately they will be less moved by natives being bullied, because- bigots. And as a vet.. I will say this, I do not believe they will back down.
