Golfing And Gelato In Italy


Monica Sisavat

Barack Obama is currently vacationing in Italy, and on Saturday, the former president stopped by the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco to play a round of golf. Barack certainly looked the part in his white collared shirt, matching pants, and cap and appeared to be in a good mood

    GM, TOD ohana.
    What a lovely way to start the week; thanks for the photos of our First couple living the life.
    I believe that the lady next to Michelle is the poet Elizabeth Alexander, an Obama friend and the author of the poem, “Praise Song for The Day” that she delivered at PBO’s first inauguration.
    Have a great day everyone.

    Michelle and her friends epitomize the saying “black doesn’t crack.” They are all women of a certain age who are youthful, beautiful and vibrant. If you look at any gathering of older A-A women, you will see similar looking groups.

      He only thought to reach for her hand because Bibi is holding his wife’s. We have many photos that prove that he never does this. I guess Melania was not interested in fronting. This is so damn funny.

      When Roberts wrote the in the majority opinion that the country had changed with regard to racial discrimination, that was not the case especially regarding voting rights. But add to that, we now have a person in the Oval Office that, even throughout his campaign, encourages discrimination, not just racial, but gender and religious as well. He, along with the GOP are doing their best to make discrimination legal.

        We had more than 8 years of a front row seat to marital love and respect. Their pda was natural and obviously how they acted all of the time. The most telling evidence of their natural pda was how enthusiastic Malia was about the kiss cam. When her parents missed it the first time, “why didn’t you kiss?”, she made sure that they had a second opportunity, waited for it with great anticipation, and cheered, clapped with an expression that seemed to say well done when they kissed.

    School choice policies championed by Betsy DeVos in Michigan have resulted in segregation — especially in her hometown.

    …the billionaire was behind the inter-district choice policy that disrupted neighborhood attendance zones starting in 2000, reported AlterNet.

    Under that policy, white families have fled their residential districts for less-diverse schools, especially in Holland, where DeVos is from.

    DeVos says school choice keeps poor children from becoming trapped in struggling schools, but the reality is that wealthier white students flee diverse schools — taking tax dollars with them.

    Veteran educator Patrick Kearney wrote an open letter to DeVos, published by the Huffington Post, to object to her policies and performance so far.

    “You’ve now been the Secretary of Education for a few months and I have to say, we’ve moved from being freaked out to understanding that you are who we thought you were,” Kearney wrote.

    The longtime teacher criticized her first budget for the Department of Education, which eliminates $1.2 billion from after-school programs that serve 1.6 million children, as well as cutting $27 million in arts education and $12 million for Special Olympics programs.

    The education budget also does away with a program that offers loan forgiveness as an incentive for teachers to work in underserved rural communities.

    Top Democrats are demanding answers from the Trump administration about whether a top healthcare official offered insurance companies a quid pro quo to get their support for the GOP’s ObamaCare repeal bill.

    Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma sought political support from insurance companies for the American Health Care Act (AHCA) by offering a deal to continue funding congressionally mandated cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    In a letter dated Sunday, ranking Democrats on four congressional committees asked for an explanation about whether Verma or any other official at HHS offered a deal in exchange for insurer support of the AHCA….The letter was signed by Sens. Patty Murray (Wash.) and Ron Wyden (Ore.), the ranking members of the Senate Finance and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committees respectively, as well as Reps. Richard Neal (Mass.) and Frank Pallone Jr. (N.J.), the House Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce committee ranking members, respectively.

    The lawmakers asked for notes from recent meetings as well as the names of any officials at HHS who made an offer of exchanging CSRs for support of the House legislation.

      Ugly White Americans everywhere, emboldened by the #1 entitled jackass they elected. It will take several generations for the world to respect or trust the US govt. and its citizens. In 5 months we have lost all that we gained on the international front. Michelle always said that while it takes years to build, destruction is the only thing that happens in seconds. The festering GOP that came to power with the Southern Strategy, the hate-filled, greedy, and opportunistic GOP voters have brought us this national nightmare.

      President Obama never complained of tiredness and always had a jam-packed schedule including:
      Press Conferences and bilaterals covered by US journalists wherever he went.
      Baby Putin – do us all a favor and go back to sleep.
