    Well done, Hopefruit. We needed this day to reflect and rejoice for what we had in the Age of Obama. We will have to work very hard to reclaim it.

    9 years ago …the world and our country were so full of hope. Today…feels like a step back in time….very dark times.

      We atleast now know what it looks like to have a hopeful, competent, qualified, productive hard working President that works for the betterment of life for the Country’s citizens having experienced PBO’s 8 Years in office. We are now experiencing the exact opposite which is painful, hopeless, and frightening. We have to stand up for each other since our government will not.

    From Zero to 200 Million.
    It was an onslaught.
    Yet, HRC won the Popular Votes by 3M+, irrespective of all that went on, the Cheating & Russian Collusion.

      I wish Facebook had a competitor. They really need to be challenged so they can’t broadcast fake news to help Russian puppets win our elections.

    Morning everyone:) Happy Sunday. Happy Birthday, amk! If you are twiddling your thumbs today with nothing to do, or have a few minutes to spare, you can make some phone calls for Northam from the comfort of your own home. We NEED TO GET THIS DONE IN VA!


    Taking nothing for granted, multiple progressive organizations around the country have provided opportunities for Americans to help with the election, both for Governor and for the House of Delegates (Virginia’s State Legislature). The Virginia Democratic Party has a phone banking system that anyone can sign up, and make as many or as few calls as they want. Run for Something, an organization dedicated to helping progressive millennials run for down ballot offices around the country, has a phone bank specially for the House of Delegates. (password 2017candidates). Indivisible and Democracy for America also have an option (DFA appears to have VA back in their phone bank). The election is three days away, but whether you’re in Virginia, or phone banking from your bed, there’s still time to make a difference.

      Of course, its as though they have a long lost uncle that somehow left them millions of dollars in his will and they don’t want to pay an inheritance tax or estate tax. So they walk around parroting the same nonsense as actual millionaires and billionaires. I actually got into an argument at work with one of these people. I told him actual millionaires and billionaires don’t need lobbyist because they have dumbasses such as yourself lobbying for them. Well I didn’t actually call him a dumbass because if I did I’m sure I would have ended up in human resources explaining why I called him a dumbass. But you get my drift, I have never in my life seen someone that doesn’t have much, fighting for someone that has a whole lot more. Its like the have-nots fighting for the have-mores.

      Beyond troubling. Why aren’t Republican women challenging this ripe sexism within their party? Allen must be living in the Stone Age when women were barefoot and pregnant. Time has passed him by.

    GOP tax plan takes from students and working families, gives to corporations and the rich – tell your representatives to oppose it

    The $5 trillion tax plan released by House GOP leadership on Nov. 2 slashes taxes for corporations and wealthy Americans while putting middle class families at risk of higher taxes. The plan eliminates the $250 deduction educators can take for classroom supplies they buy with their own money and dramatically expands a loophole that allows the wealthy to set aside money for private school expenses. It also limits the deduction for state and local taxes, which will reduce school funding and lead to larger class sizes and job losses for educators.take action

    “We’ve been down this yellow brick road before,” said NEA President Lily Eskelsen García. “Lawmakers pass massive tax cuts, then come back later demanding huge cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and education to ‘pay for’ the tax breaks for people and corporations who are not paying their fair share before getting new tax breaks.” Republican leaders want to rush their reckless tax plan through the House in the next two weeks! Tell your members of Congress to oppose the GOP tax plan.

      He really is President for Life for so many people. Things are so bleak that he is still “presidenting” almost a year out of office. Hopefully, he will continue to by and large stay above the fray and to continue to lay the foundation for a better future for all of us through his work with young people the world over. Already he needs a break from folks so I hope that he packs up and goes to Hawaii for the rest of the year to body surf, snorkel, swim, play touch football with his boys on the beach, have luaus and make sweet love to Michelle to the sound of the waves.

        She really needs to focus on the Resistance instead of relitigating the Democratic primaries and pointing fingers at other Democrats to justify how she messed up Clinton’s race. There’s a reason she will never be a campaign manager again and the reason is all her fault.

      GA HF2.

      Glad to you posting regularly since Halloween (also glad that we didn’t dress up this year, which has been an hourly horror show since Jan 20th — reality is worse than anything we could fabricate 😦 ).

      Jared is BFFs with the last prince standing, MBS — who already was first deputy prime minister, defense minister, and president of KSA’s Council for Economic Development, per Wikipedia.

      Here’s what the grotesque evil occupying the WH tweeted in Dec 2015:

      I’ve seen Twitter speculation that getting rid of Alwaleed Bin Talal opens the door for more control of Fox News by Murdoch (have no idea if this is true or not):

      KSA King Salman met with Vlad early last month (Wikipedia says King Salman has Alzheimer’s)…

        Here’s an article on Aramco proposed IPO, published just before Kushner left to embrace his BFF MBS:

        And of course the grotesque evil in the WH posted this just before boarding Air Force One yesterday:

        Here’s the take on Lebanese PM resigning in Saudi Arabia yesterday, from a Middle East journalist (have no idea what his political inclinations are):

    Hope everyone whose not in (non-tribal) Arizona, Hawaii and other locales which didn’t need to adjust their clocks this morning is enjoying our 25-hour day (yay! all days should be 25 hours, though our daylight hours would get really screwy).

    Saw this morning that there’s a ginormous investigation that is being published today, now referred to the #ParadisePapers:

    (URL in this tweet didn’t work for me, but here’s a glimpse of how big this endeavor was.)

    Expect a FIREHOSE of disclosures about prominent oligarchs from this investigation.

    To start…
