    President Obama is also a “championship-caliber good man.”

      I was watching an old movie from the 80’s that was hokey but it seems more and more than the villains and heroes in these old movies are identical to the cast that play on our national stage. This one had a man playing Satan that talks about using a new arrival to you know where to try to destroy the good reputation of a man he has tried to influence but he says is “incorruptable”. So he’s found someone that looks just like him and plans to impersonate him and slander him that way. Every old movie seems to present these classic bad guys and they have the traits of the GOP that we see every day. It makes me realize why they have always hated Barack Obama. He’s a good man.

        A friend of mine was telling me a similar thought she had, the other day, about a movie from the ’80s that seemed to predict what’s going on now. Ugh.

        And, yes, Barack Obama is a mighty fine man, for sure. ❤

      And he’s working overtime with his obnoxious team to destroy this country ASAP in between playing golf at his mansion in Florida. It will be interesting when his ditzy supporters start getting harmed by Trump’s policies. Who are they going to blame for that since they willingly voted for a man with no experience, morals or principles?

    While President Obama was celebrating the reason for Easter and creating peace through diplomacy, the man child is off to play golf with millionaires after sending a few bombs to show “how great he is”. How do those who voted this person into power equate this to their Christian teachings.

    It seems the height of hypocrisy to be wishing people a peaceful Easter – which is what we usually do at this time of the year.

      This is a time when we can see the contrast between honor and villainy and ask ourselves what we truly want leading us. Today I am thinking of those that denounced Barack Obama from the left and demonized Hillary Clinton. For some reason their spoiled self centeredness makes me more aggrieved than those that have lost their minds and hearts to the propaganda mill on the right. Its as if they at least should have known better.

  18. April 14, 2017 at 8:08 am

    Umm David ignatius is a new con and the media loves it when republican presidents drop bombs.
    According to them the bigger the better.
    But this guy ignatius is disconcerting…
    I have a theory that these guys in the media have skin in the game.
    Probably massive sticks in Raytheon or general dynamics…
    Bc only $$$ could make sense of this drooling over a couple of BIG bombs.
    Anyways …
    That’s my thoughts for now…

I am so happy it’s Friday even though I’m dealing with a sinus infection 😦 This has not been a good week for me and I’m finally glad to find out what’s been wrong with me. I am hoping the antibiotics start working soon, only just started them last night. I was so bummed I had to miss our Sunday gathering. I’m happy that you’all had such a great time. Lastly, I’m so glad I got to be alive and alert during the presidency of Barack Obama, still the best.president.ever!

      April 14, 2017 at 10:04 am

      This is EXTREMELY good news! All grass roots. These local elections are critical: this is how GOP did it, one small local election at a time. And the seats won were in areas that NEVER elect Dems.

      If we have the time, working with local Dem party is the way to go. Your efforts are really compounded because they have such an impact. Every school board, county board, small town: this is how change happens.

      My best friend’s husband is County President of their small, rural county in PA. Because of his intelligent leadership, he took a 100% GOP location and turned it 100% blue, even in 2016. He gets things done, he works with people, he found ways to not insult the local GOP but gently bring them to sanity. And in small locations, you can see results. A bridge gets repaired, stop lights go up, library hours are extended. People can see the effects of good government.

        • 67 57andfemale
          April 14, 2017 at 10:47 am

          I’ve been pretty happy with Perez so far except the credit given BS for this national tour. BS, of course, sent out a fundraising email about the tour, but didn’t mention Perez or the DNC! Again, Dems chasing that idiotic vote of people who still have no conscience over the damage they did.

          The party does need to invest in local elections, but it’s hard. It takes a lot of money and careful organization. That being said, this is what the GOP did. It took them 30 years but they got what they wanted. We have to get back municipalities and state legislatures. It’s critically important.

            April 15, 2017 at 11:39 am

            Yes it is but we don’t have the luxury of 30 years. The American people need to wake up and understand that to save our democracy, and I mean that literally, they need to VOTE. It’s so hard to watch what’s happening now because so many people stayed home.

    …Now he is tweeting threats to North Korea — saying that if China doesn’t “properly deal with” the country, the United States will. That tweet, from an American President, is being treated not like a rogue comment from an immoral, inexperienced reality TV star — which it is — but like an official statement from a man holding the highest office in the world. The fallout has been swift and scary. …

    While we were sleeping last night, China, one of the world’s great nuclear and military powers, warned that the country provoking a conflict with North Korea would “pay the price.” …

    Trump has been in office for just three months. He has 45 months to go in his first term. He’s simply being himself — and that’s the problem. The man is not going to shapeshift into something he isn’t. His ignorance and ego could get us all killed.

        In the final days of the Watergate scandal, Def. Sec. James Schlessinger told the generals to ignore any order from Nixon to initiate military action, especially nuclear, and to check with him first. I suspect something similar is now happening with our military and Sec. Def. Gen. Mattis. Mattis is rational and not a lunatic. I don’t believe Gen. Mattis will allow Trump to start WWIII to avoid the FBI.
