    Thank you for sharing what a great impact President Obama and Michelle had on these two families.

    Good morning, TOD!

    Good Morning TOD family!

    I does my heart good to know that so many people were blessed to have lived to see what might be our last great president in a very long while. Thank God he will be around to spread goodness outside his presidency. I am hoping that many of the young people who are 18yrs old and said ENOUGH, will become President so that my last memory will be of an even greater President with the same moral values as PBO. My prayer will be that people will stop electing “non-politicians” celebrities and elect someone who CARES ABOUT GOVERNING for the people of this country and not for the b&m -illionaires.

    The Obamas gave and continue to give us so much just by being who they are. They never had to feign empathy, compassion and loving care. Their integrity, brilliance and strong sense of self are evidenced in all that they do and say which is why so many love them and the Republicans hate them. Going high, not falling for the racists traps and being true to yourself as you are assailed on all sides is hard which is why so many in public life fail the test. Even out of office, just by being themselves, they are a rebuke to all that followed them and a beacon of hope and perseverance for we who resist.

    Good morning, TOD ohana. By part of Florida has been experiencing a traditional Spring for the first time in many decades and I am really enjoying it.

    Heartwarming post! Congrats, SJTerrid. We miss them so much. Everytime I think the end is near for the hideous charlatan in the White House, Congressional Republicans fail to put an end to our national misery.

    One must surmise that the evidence that was supplied to a judge to grant a raid on Michael Cohen’s office and home must have been seismic. Judges almost to a person loathe granting search warrants on officers of the court. Creek, shit, paddle, without, up, a.

      Especially when you keep in mind the fact that everyone involved in this is Republican (including a Trump-appointed Judge). These are not vengeful, partisan Democrats.

    If you’ve watched Law&Order long enough, you know that when Jack McCoy sends Briscoe and Green to go and arrest a lawyer, usually the lawyer ends up doing time or flipping on his or her client.

    … Even though Barack and Michelle won’t be at their wedding, Harry and Meghan have plans to visit with the Obamas in the near future.
    “Both the couples look forward to seeing each other soon,” adds a royal source. … The absence of dignitaries at the wedding also means President Donald Trump and senior British politicians will not be invited. …

    Was interested to read the comments about how important President Obama still is to people, even when in dementia. My husband died in July 2015. He had been sick with heart disease and kidney disease for months. About a week before he died, he looked at me and asked: “Is President Obama still president of the United States?” I answered, “yes he is, honey.” He smiled, gave a big sigh of contentment and fell sweetly asleep. I was so glad to be able to answer in the affirmative.
    Today my daughter told me about how he had expressed concern that the country was going to go down the path we are now in…..but she is of the activist generation, and says it won’t happen; her generation won’t let it. Yesterday she went to the state capitol to march with the teachers…there were 50,000 in Oklahoma City marching! It is the best organized, best behaved, happiest group ever marching in OKC. As she said, the teachers should run the state government………

      Reading all of these comments about the Obama’s has made my eyes fill with tears. I’m reminded again of how much we’ve lost.
      These days of Trump are becoming unbearable.
      So grateful to have this place to come to still, to find peace and comfort.
      Thank you NW for keeping the lights on here.
      It’s the only bright light left in this dark place that we’re in right now.

        Thanks Judith for asking. Amazingly well. My cancer was totally contained, and not estrogen caused. I have to have absolutely NO treatment: no radiation, no chemo, no pill. I am one of the fortunate ones. My biggest hurdle right now is regaining my stamina. I’m learning to live without one part of my body…..a small price to pay for getting rid of the disease.

    Just a bit if history. This brought down a whole bunch of British Parliament. It was huge, back then. This Stormy thing, even though somewhat different, reminded me of that scandal.

    I only watched part of it but from what I did see, yesterday’s hearing with Zuckerberg was in large part an embarrassment. Most of the Senators seemed woefully uninformed about the deeper issues and problems at hand and only had a passing familiarity with Facebook’s business model, the technology, the realm of data collection/protection/dissemination and disclosure at the heart of the matter. Sen Kamala Harris was an exception, along with Sen Durbin and maybe a couple of others.
