    Yes; she’s terrific… And I agree with her every word. (As I do with our Senator, Chris Murphy, who responded to a “challenge” from an interviewer on TV asking, “But can government legislate evil…?” by saying, “That’s exactly what government is supposed to do – at least create legislation that makes evil harder to accomplish.” Not Murphy’s exact words, but I’ll stand by it as an accurate paraphrase…)

    Not entirely comfortable with saying Ms. Gonzalez “pulled no punches and took no prisoners.” Referring to punching and locking people up are no longer the metaphors they used to be understood to be, ever since The Orange One got his hands on a podium and a twitter account…

    Obama Vows Fast Action in New Push for Gun Control
    By MICHAEL D. SHEARDEC. 19, 2012

    WASHINGTON — President Obama declared on Wednesday that he would make gun control a “central issue” as he opens his second term, promising to submit broad new firearm proposals to Congress no later than January and to employ the full power of his office to overcome deep-seated political resistance.

    Leading House Republicans responded to the president’s pledge in the aftermath of the Connecticut school massacre by restating their firm opposition to new limits on guns or ammunition, setting up the possibility of a bitter legislative battle and a philosophical clash over the Second Amendment soon after Mr. Obama’s inauguration.

    Oh my dear TOD family. We just got home from seeing Black Panther. It’s hard to put into words how much this movie has affected me emotionally. So many times I was close to crying. When it was over, the whole theater sat there quietly through the credits. No one left till all the credits were over and then we all left quietly. You could tell how much it affected everyone and all in the theater were white. I want to see it again on the IMAX. What a movie.

      I plan to see it on Tuesday after the weekend/holiday rush so that I can sit quietly and take it all in. Really looking forward to seeing the women and a world of gender equality as much as everything else that this movie promises.

        That’s why the presidency of Barack Obama was so important to our youth. It planted a seed that could not be un-planted, and to me that was more important than anything that President Obama could have achieved in office. If you want to truly free a person, you free their mind, you take the shackles off of their imagination.

        This is what women do, especially Black women, all of the time. We leave the doors open and pull in others behind us, push them along the way and celebrate their successes without bitterness and jealousy. There is no king-of-the-hill, I am the only one mentality with most women. The hierarchal nature of male relationships, the need to be the alpha at all costs is holding various groups and the nation as a whole from achieving equity and the greatness that it brings.

          February 19, 2018 at 8:56 am

          Because ego is a disease that black women have not fallen victim to, and I can say that with every fiber of my being. It takes strength not to put yourself first, because you care about others more.

        Snowden was a racist, hated President Obama and wanted to embarrass him and hurt his administration, the Hell with the USA if it gets hurt too. I hope he dies pennyless and homeless in Russia.

    5 days


    Police say a masked shooter opened fire on a group of people outside a restaurant in San Antonio, wounding a 6-year-old boy and three adults.

    Police Chief William McManus says two of the adults’ injuries are life-threatening. He says the boy was shot in the leg and is expected to survive.

    Police say the shooting occurred 8:40 p.m. Sunday as the group waited outside a Texas Roadhouse restaurant near Ingram Park Mall.

    McManus says investigators don’t believe the shooting was random.

    Police say the masked suspect opened fire about 15 feet (4.6 meters) from the front of the restaurant and emptied the gun’s magazine. Police said late Sunday that the male suspect was still being sought.

    McManus says the victims are related. He says the adults are in their 20s.
