    Great signs at the March For Science with a huge family presence. Now we do it again next Saturday as a March for Climate Justice with POC leading it.

    Something “so dark, so real, so evil” with no clear precedent.
    Henry Giroux gives voice to what we’ve been thinking and saying about America’s creeping culture of cruelty and authoritarianism.

    It looks like Macron and LePen in the second round final of the France election. Good news, Macron has been endorsed by both the conservative and socialist candidates. Predictwise has him at 83% probability of victory in the final. The current runoff polling has Macron winning by 30%.

    It was expected that the socialist would endorse Macron. This endorsement by the conservative Fillon is the death knell of Trump/Putin’s fascist candidate, LePen.

    It looks like Hannity is gonna get his turn now.
    This guy last year brought in a Gun to the FOX studio to intimidate Juan Williams. Why? Williams said something on air that Hannity disagreed with. These people are just LOCO.

    Former President Barack Obama hosts a dinner in Chicago on Sunday for his Obama Presidential Center ahead of his first post-presidential public appearance on Monday at the University of Chicago. … On Monday, Obama will discuss civic engagement and community organizing at 11 a.m. at the University of Chicago’s Logan Center for the Arts, 915 E. 60th St. … He will be joined in the “conversation” by six younger activists, including a student at Kenwood Academy High School. The others are Chicago-area college students or relatively recent graduates. …

    First 100 days. First meeting with Secretary of State. 1/21/2009. This picture also brings back the memory that because of the economic crisis, potus thought that it would be improper to redecorate the Oval Office even though Congress had appropriated the funds. Instead, he kept the Bush 43 carpeting, drapes and furniture until mid 2010. petesouza

      Ever since she bashed and called into question the integrity of Pres Obama over TPP, I take her with caution. However I do remember how the Bernie bros threatened her because she did not endorse Bernie in the primaries.

      Don’t forget the stupid Brexit vote in the UK. Although the PM is not as bad as 45 she is starting to get on their nerves with all these elections to shore up her popularity.

      So glad that other countries have learned what not to do to their by seeing how we have allowed ours to be trashed. They will be a much needed counter balance to 45’s regime and the republican majority congress.

      GE DF.

      I checked out @shewhovotes’ Twitter timeline after reading the article in her tweet that you posted upthread re: Budapest Bridge.

      My wee brain cannot begin to keep track of all the players and all the countries involved in #Krelimgate — Hungary PM Viktor Orban is described as a center-right pol by Wikipedia, yet: “Two years ago, Republican Senator John McCain, referred to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán as a ‘neo-Fascist dictator’.”

      And Seb Gorka is at the center of this (Budapest being European HQ for FSB)… And who the heck is Arthur J. Finkelstein… the ramifications in this article are literally mind-boggling (to me at least).

      But, LOVED this tweet (which I had no problem comprehending, LOL) — this impressive, caring, generous, whip-smart young lady is also an Arizonan 🙂 .

      Her system functions without running water and electricity (which I think are needed by commercial solar power panels):

          Morning, arapaho:) Went right to bed last night and didn’t see your post until just now:) Good for Kelly! I hadn’t seen this before you posted this….this is the kind of forward thinking that we need. So glad that she brought this idea to the Navajo Reservation to attend to her people.

          As for the story about the Budapest Bridge…I’m right there with you about not being able to keep all the crooks straight!! I hope someone wiser than me sees this and it helps them connect the dots! I want ALL of them behind bars!

    Just a few months ago, not many knew about these five fourth-graders from a low-income community in Indianapolis.

    But now, the Panther Bots, a thriving robotics team at Pleasant Run Elementary School, have become the face of a success story about a group of kids who were taunted with racial slurs but were too determined to let that affect their confidence. Earlier this month, they found themselves being honored on the Senate floor of the Indiana Statehouse. The group travels to Louisville on Sunday to compete in a worldwide robotics contest.

    In early February, after the students won a local robotics challenge — a steppingstone to qualify for a state robotics championship — a couple of competitors from other schools were heard screaming, “You need to go back to Mexico!”

    After news of the racial slur incident came out last month, scores of strangers have shown their support for the Panther Bots. More than 200 people raised about $12,000 to help send the team to the world competition. The teammates have received notes, cards, buttons and CDs from artists from around the country. They also received a banner wishing all the teams headed to the world championships good luck. On it was a special message to the kids: “We support Panther Bots.”
