      Devastating for so many poorer women who need Planned Parenthood for basic medical care. I hope they get a lot of donations to make up some of the difference. And they need to sue.

    President Obama provides great suggestions for reading, listening to music, a way to behave in public and private. Sorry Mueller didn’t drop indictments on Donnie Jr. and Jarvanka today.

      There is a thread on Twitter that shows the complete encounter and puts this in context.

      there is more to this story…i do not agree with using kids to shame or demean…those are not the lessons we should be teaching our children

      here is a fuller video of the incident

        When I first saw a mention of this encounter, I simply did not believe that Sen. Feinstein would have blown off a group of children interested in making the country better. Now I see that I was right. You have to become very skeptical and trust what you already know about a national politician.

      Norm Ornstein put it all in a nutshell but I wonder if I could put the words together that well if in a pinch. I am so sick and tired of the GOP only attacking Democrats and never coming up with any good ideas that help all Americans.

    it is really a challenge to avoid being weighted down by all the roll coaster goings on related to the scumbags in Team Treason and the evil they have done to this country and the world. .

    If a life-time criminal like Individual 1 is never indicted, then why is anyone else ever indicted?

      Good morning TOD. NO time to read this now. Hope I can remember to return to it.

      Thanks for posting this Meta! I’m so impressed with her!

      • February 23, 2019 at 11:17 am

        Her honesty and sincerity are so refreshing. Such a contrast with the horrid treachery we face now.

        I’ve talked about my older brother who was a lifelong Republican but who changed his opinions and values dramatically in 2008 and voted for PBO twice and then voted for HRC and despises Trump. He called me the other day because he’d seen Kamala Harris on CNN and he was very, very impressed with her. What stood out for me was he said he really likes her personality. Maybe that will make the difference this time. She’s obviously a very intelligent person and a compassionate person AND also a person with joy in her life. All of that shines through.

          So glad to hear about your brother Meta.

          I have a friend who’s a lawyer who made a good point to me about Kamala. With the meme that she’s on the side of cops, my friend said she was doing her job as DA; what makes someone think she’d act the same as a DA as President?! Also, what about how she stood against the death penalty in CA when a policeman got shot?

          Is it more misogyny or racism?!

        • February 23, 2019 at 4:31 pm

          yes that stands out for me too…HER JOY….

    Humanitarian Aid – Not Trump Intervention:
    Trump is “orchestrating a coup” in Venezuela, says Medea Benjamin, Venezuela News Conference, Washington D.C.
    = Creating a crisis on the border, the threat of violence and civil war to justify United States intervention.
    Trump is politicizing the dire need for human aid…such that the Red Cross and United Nations say they WON’T be involved with aid, period.
    Venezuela is in need of negotiations.
    If the U.S. really cares it will call for NEGOTIATIONS. Of course Trump is saying No to negotiations.
    If the U.S. really cares about the terrible economic and dire health plight of Venezuelans it will stop the blockade and help access to foreign markets, medicines etc.
    Instead of that: Billions of (oil) dollars have been taken over by Trump’s government via heavy sanctions which starve the people.
    Venezuela needs negotiations not violence. (Possible mediators are the Argentinian Pope and Mexican President Obrador.)
    Really, a new referendum is need, a presidential election to let Venezuelans decide Marduro/Gaido or someone new.
    The wealthy Gaidó is probably a pawn of the oil capitalists. (Maybe he has done a deal with Trump and the oil dictators.)
    -imo the United States has no business backing one side or meddling here. Instead it could help with the hard work of real negotiations.
    -And perhaps a new presidential election.

      Amy Goodman:
      “A new book out this week by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe reveals Trump privately discussed going to war with Venezuela in 2017. McCabe writes, quote, “Then the president talked about Venezuela. That’s the country we should be going to war with, he said. They have all that oil and they’re right on our back door.”

      it is hard to get white folks to the level of Truth and Reconciliation…there has been so much invested to convince white folks that they are better than blk folks …that the inferiority of blk folks is in our DNA…in order for white folks to dispute this racist dogma they will have to first look in the mirror at themselves…

      hard to do…

    I’m sorry but Deadpool 2 sucked, it was awful, it was a convoluted jumbled mess of a movie. Ryan Reynolds has built a career out of being sarcastic, and once the sarcasm goes he’s going to have to be able to pay the bills by being able to act. Don’t get me wrong I like Ryan Reynolds and I’m sure he’s a good guy and he probably never stole a freight train but his schtick is wearing thin, fast.

      hi Don,
      …none of this Super-Vio stuff for me! Gonna see ‘A Star is Born’ finally at small venue cinema this aft. Nominated seven times…be interesting to see the outcome tonight. As for Mr. Cooper I saw him (on dvd)) in a tv show where his bit-part blew away the ‘lead’ guy. Imo is why they cut Cooper’s role to very sporadic. But talent wul out…rooting for Gaga/Cooper even b4 seeing the movie!

    Some Random Thoughts on Sunday Morning

    the discussion comes in about 29 minutes

    The Pod guys have a discussion about political power the difference of how Democrats see power and how Republicans see power….they also talk about increasing the number of Supreme Court justices on the bench…they also talk about blowing up the filibuster….good discussion…i want to know what the diary thinks of these issues….
    what are your defining issues…
    health care…criminal justice…voting rights….foreign policy…immigration reform..minimum wage…#Truth&Reconciliation…

    We have to take back the Senate…

    AZ has Mark Kelly
    TX maybe Beto will run for the Senate
    GA..maybe Stacey Abrams
    SC …Jaime Harrison

    if all these folks win…we can take over the Senate….give us 51 votes
