    Boy, did we need this place to continue more than any of us even thought after PBO left the Presidency.

    May I say that I love our Forever President and understand why he was honored in this way 10 years in a row. No secret why. The POS’s on the other hand…

      Citizen’s United was the undoing of our fair elections and the beginning of this mess. They live for $$ and power.Doesn’t matter where the $$ comes from or who gave it. That is all.

      The NYT is such a strange newspaper. Sometimes they are protective of Trump and other times they reveal the truth about his sleaziness. It’s as if they can’t make up their minds on how to cover this “president”.

      This is such a travesty. I would love to hear Democrats be more aggressive about highlighting how Trump is disregarding the norms of the presidency. Trump needs to be challenged about this behavior. It is unprecedented.

      Quite. ❤ And it would have been lots more than "only" 10 years in a row, if the majority of Americans had met him earlier! ❤

    Goodnight TOD and please realize that until the question(s) in this tweet are answered we won’t begin to understand what happened and why our Democracy is at the brink of devastation with a majority of the GOP, untold numbers of corporate executives, and at least 3 members of SCOTUS willing accomplices in its demise ….

    I think this might have some possibilities……..Blue state Democrats were locked out of negotiations. Federal taxes should not be disproportionally levied against blue states.

    Happy New Year from down under TODers. I’m so hoping 2018 will be so much better than 2017 – although I thought nothing would be as bad as 2016.

    But I’ll stay with – it can’t get worse & hope I am right. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

    He is using OUR $$$$ to pay for HIS THINGS. Not okay. I would rather pay to give all Americans healthcare….or fix infrastructure….or just about anything else. This is how rich people get richer…they game the system and then blame others to deflect away from themselves being crooks and liars. ( Not ALL rich people do this, of course. This one does, though, as do the other ones that follow him around)

        Trump knows nothing but to lie. Anyone who’d buy that he’s ‘settled down’ is naive.

        I’m guessing his attorneys are trying to stop Trump from tripping Mueller’s “Dead Man’s Switch” should Mueller be stopped from continuing his investigation…whatever that will entail (NY/NJ AGs and state charges, anyone?)

  42. December 31, 2017 at 3:04 pm

    Yup ….

      From Barack Obama…FB page

      During my presidency, I started a tradition of sharing my reading lists and playlists. It was a nice way to reflect on the works that resonated with me and lift up authors and artists from around the world. With some extra time on my hands this year to catch up, I wanted to share the books and music that I enjoyed most. From songs that got me moving to stories that inspired me, here’s my 2017 list — I hope you enjoy it and have a happy and healthy New Year.

      The best books I read in 2017:

    The United States is at a historical crossroads where one political party has flown off the deep end and has become a cult, intent on protecting its white supremacist past. The Republican Party won’t go quietly into the night, even if they suffer a blue tsunami in November. They didn’t simply become the Party of Trump, they’ve been that way for a generation or more.

    New Year’s Eve in the South: loud booms echoing throughout the neighborhoods. Sounds like a war zone in my area.
    Hoping bullet don’t come through the walls/windows; may have to take cover in the bath tub.
    Happy New Year, TOD ohana. May we and the country thrive in the coming year as we fight for the soul of the nation.
    Thanks to all here who kept the doors open.
