          Thank you. I read about this movie in the entertainment section in my newspaper today.

          hello Judith…

          how have you been…i hope all is well with you…

          the title of this movie seems like such an oxymoron…i could not take it seriously…what made the movie good

          there was a book that came out in the 60s…”Black Like Me”….in which a white journalist tinted his skin and pretended to be a blk man…supposedly he wanted to expose racism…i have never got that .. .there is a movie after the book…only a white privileged person would think that it was appropriate to pretend to a blk person at the height of JimCrow and Segregation…i always thought the book was a sham…

            According to the article I read about the movie. It’s based on a true story that happened in the 60’s, I believe. A black cop and a white cop together went undercover in the KKK targeting David Duke and others. His interactions with Duke was over the phone for a long time.

    I watched this yesterday. It was so nice. Two of the nicest people in Government. Joe Biden was the least wealthiest Senator in Congress. He had been a senator for so long he probably didn’t have to raise money like the others. The wealthiest Republicans need to be investigated for stock fraud. I can’t believe they are wealthy from only their Pacs and fundraisers.

    Two humble, kind and compassionate men who worked and continue to do so for mankind, their country, not for their own wallet or power. Proud to say I lived in the time of President Obama and VP Biden. Many thanks to Chips and NW for making my life bearable in these awful trump swamp times with reminders of two great men.

    Ms. Pelosi: “I have made some very powerful, rich enemies because I have been highly instrumental in passing Dodd-Frank, a big energy bill, and the Affordable Care Act which has extended health care to over 20 million people and protected over 130 million with pre-existing conditions.”
    We need her experience, toughness. GOP is bad mouthing her because of her SUCCESS. Dems in House getting apparently getting fooled.
    -Bernie Bots and Green Party Russkies and russian media bots doing the Destabilizing con game.
    -btw Judge stopped the Green Party in Montana because GOP was funding them.

      Nerdy – Realize it’s a private blog, but too bad “The Obama Diary” can’t be submitted, for posterity! I believe TOD captures the moments and tells the tale, like nowhere else!

    Navy seal who killed Bin Laden calls Trump’s military parade “bullshit”.

    Long time no see from Iowa. I wanted to share a snarky line in a local obituary that caught my attention: (https://lewisfuneralhomes.com/tribute/details/2675/Marlyn-Schepers/obituary.html#tribute-start) – fourth paragraph. It reads: “Marlyn was drafted into the U. S. Army Sept. 13, 1955. He did not have bone spurs.” This was just so random and funny, it really needs to be shared out there! Have a great weekend, everyone.

      What is so deep about this…is that the press knew about this GOP Obstruction strategy…but was always pressing President Obama about why he could not not make more overtures towards the GOP…

        I don’t know how President Obama got through any of it … he’s a much better person than I am. “When they go low, we go high” personified! He chose to do what was right for the country and his standing in (and the example he set for) the world, not just right for him. Amazing and one of the reasons we love him, but I so wish he didn’t have to put up with any of it!

        • August 11, 2018 at 5:33 pm

          i wonder that if he had to do it all over again what he would do…i look forward to reading his book

            It would be interesting to know. But I’m kinda thinking he’s a #NoRegrets type person. People who “give their all” to what they feel to be worthwhile usually are. And sometimes that’s a surprise, even to them.

      Roundup spray: Our Parks and Recreation this year posted tiny notices saying they were about to spray “Roundup” (Glyphosate).
      So I wrote “POISON, CANCEROUS” on each one. Guessing the Roundup was sprayed. Not necessary to kill plants that are feeding the wildlife. Really. busy public areas: Tiny babies crawl all over the grass. Children of all ages are coached sports. Students play frisbee. We walk our dogs, etc. Taking this issue to our Mayor. Monsanto is not going to destroy our children’s lives.

          very sad situation;

          …. someone shared the conversation between the gentleman who took off and the air controller;

          … seemed he couldn’t land the plane and was also dealing with emotional issues;

          … we need to notice those who are hurting and reach out to share encouragement and guide them to professional help

    How is this acceptable? Call your senators and demand to know. Especially in light of what we now know the plan is because it was made very clear by Nunes in front of donors. He must NOT be rushed through!

    A week or so ago two coworkers wanted to friend me on Facebook.

    Update: I told the both of them no, I told them I only friend people on Facebook that I like and that I have something in common with.

    I see there was a Terror Incident in Seattle, WA involving a Commercial Airliner by a 29yo Male….my guess…SMH…is a White Male? I have refused to watch #CNN & the couple times that I tuned in to MSNBC, I heard nothing….until I stopped by at TOD. Thanks for the information.

      Police kneeling to Corporations that make mega-zillions$ off the backs of NFL players who are mostly African American. Police siding with Trump? How’s about cops should be under Civilian Control? NFL players are giant PROFIT CREATORS who have EQUAL free speech.

    Alas, here’s his name and Picture.
    Why again is this guy not called a Terrorist?

    • August 11, 2018 at 9:59 pm

      e.g. not a hijacking.
      Definition: A terrorist is a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

        I don’t agree with You, sorry.
        The Plane was Never given to him. He stole it….that is a Hijack.

        • August 12, 2018 at 4:42 am

          I don’t think defining inflammatory terms is sympathizing. An enquiry is being made into the causes. There were conversations while in the air. Reportedly the jets in immediate pursuit moved him over away from populated areas. Crashing where there were no people was incredibly fortunate.

      • August 12, 2018 at 12:03 am

        Nena here’s the definition:
        Hijacking: Illegally seize (an aircraft, ship, or vehicle) in transit and force it to go to a different destination or use it for one’s own purposes.

      • 108 Sandy1110
        August 12, 2018 at 1:35 am

        That’s the problem…the people who want to sympathize with him stick to the strictest definition of a “terrorist” so they can’t apply it to him.

        And had he decided to crash this plane in downtown Seattle, the media would STILL have gone to lengths to tell us “who he was” so he’d still get sympathy even after causing deaths.
