      Congrats on first Tnmtngirl! Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

      Happy Thanksgiving to my TOD family. May you ALL have a peaceful holiday with family, friends, and have your DOTARD relatives leave politics at the door or you will pull out your Pete Souza book on President Obama and make them look at ALL the pictures! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Republicans are so out of control right now that none of them are trustworthy or principled. It’s as if they act on whims and change direction at the drop of a hat. Who knows why McCain, Collins and Murkowski are now prepared to destroy the ACA when they refused to do so a few months back. They are confused people in a confused party. We need to vote them out.

      I am sorry, but I don’t get it. How does a 68 year-old man think that his nude body is sexy? What exactly is happening to men in America that has made them lose any semblance of common sense?

    I follow Trudeau and Macron on Facebook and I am so jealous of the Canadians and the French. Both leaders are following the Obama model of leadership in so many ways. I hope and pray that I can live to see the day when the swamp is cleared and we have smart, principled, hard-working people in the White House, Congress and State governments. We have enough good and decent people to drown out the deplorables who can only win by cheating.

      I follow them too CEB. Yes, they are both following the Obama blueprint, and their countries are thriving. I noticed the poll someone posted for international trust in countries The U.S. has fallen from first to SIXTH since trump has been in office. The order is interesting, and I am sure is making the WH and groupies furious. 1. Germany 2. France 3. UK 4. Canada 5. Japan 6. U.S. This will not improve until the orange one is no longer in the WH. Would be so great to have Obama, Trudeau and Macron all working for the world.
      Happy Thanksgiving to all. I am at my son’s. Glad to be here with him and family.

  18. November 22, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    I don’t comment as much as I should for all the content I share from TOD, but I do want you ALL to know how much you are appreciated and how very thankful I am that this blog continues to live and thrive. Obama is my #ForeverPresident and it is through the efforts of you all that I get my daily dose of the wonderful Obama family. May you all have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving. LOVE ❤

    Maybe one day, I'll figure out how to post pictures to this site, lol.

    Happy Thanksgiving to TOD ohana! We are expecting a very wet, rainy Thanksgiving Day in my part of the world, but it is always sunshine when I can get together with the family.
    Special gratitude to NW for keeping the doors open and being such a great host.
    Thank you to Chips for creating this place; I think of you often and long to see you here again.
    TOD ohana far and wide: thank you for your wisdom, wit, contributions and comfort. Together we have scaled the heights and plummeted to the depths, but we are still here, lifting up our Forever President, our Fabulous FLOTUS, and the most skilled and scandal-free staff and administration ever. Together, we are insisting, persisting, and resisting to preserve our union, our sanity, and the legacy of PBO.
    Be safe those of you who are traveling, whether it is across town or across the country, and may your time together with family and friends be free of political arguments.

    Oh, and TODObots? If you think Chasing Light and An Intimate Portrait are powerful reading, hands down you will weep all the way through Dream Big Dreams. Just like I’m doing now. If I never get to the end, I’m okay with that! Yes, the Light WILL return, and never be extinguished again on earth.

    I don’t know if this would make a difference. I want us to repeatedly ask these 2 questions on social media and other media platforms and on our daily interactions: (1) if they were your relatives or friends would you believe the accounts of what happened when these children and women were victimized by a sexual predator ? (2) if these were your children, family members or friends, would you still think that voting for any party’s agenda is more important than keeping a monster who preyed on them out of public service. An advertisement that asks the people of Alabama these questions need to be run by any organization supporting Mr. Doug Jones

      I think “threatened” the appropriate term here. The term “frightened” posits him as the victim – and reinforces the notion of Blacks as possessing of something inherently scary.

      But he’s actually THREATENED…meaning that he would LIKE to feel and be SUPERIOR to Blacks but reality shows him differently, and that UPSETS him greatly. It’s his uncontrolled lust for control, dominance and power that causes him to feel threatened by Black people.

      Infants naturally fear loud noises, pain, excess heat, cold. But they do not fear black people (or any other race of people) on sight. Otherwise whites would not be able to have black nannies, or wet nurses. Because their infants would automatically recoil and reject them. There is NOTHING in the human evolution that makes us afraid of other humans based on skin color. That is something you have to be taught, and you have to cultivate it.

        Well said, Hf. ‘Threatened’ is a far better and more accurate word choice. In addition to all you’ve said, I also think Idiot President is threatened by intelligence and other qualities too; his inadequacies are why he blusters and bullies.

    We started our day talking to our son in Malaysia. As much as I dislike F@cebook I am so thankful we can FaceTime at no cost. We can see and talk for as long as we want. I am thankful he is now where he wants to be and is happy.

    We will be having our dinner with our other son and dear friends. We will have lots of food, laughter, conversation and fun.

    Especially thankful for our Chips. Thank you for starting this community and to Nerdy Wonka for keeping us going.

    Blessings to all. I do have faith in the people of this country.
