      Even with all of the backlash, this is a great time to be a woman or a girl all over the world. We are rising. We are loud and proud. We are smart, skilled and capable and not afraid to show it. So proud of the women and girls who are owning who they are and will not take “no” for a final answer. They are not asking for permission or apologizing for their ambitions or their very existence. While there are still too many who cower in fear or who have attached themselves to toxic patriarchal systems, we will save them as well.

    Derecka Purnella wrote an article in the NY Times title Why Do Obama Scold Black Boys? I guess she didn’t loke Obama comments he made at the MBK event he held in Oakland.

    Aloha TOD peeps! I’m confused by the issues in Venezuela. My instinct is to oppose whatever individual 1 is promoting. But, still, I’d like to get a fuller picture. Can anyone recommend a source for a general overview? Thanks 😘

    • February 24, 2019 at 11:49 pm

      “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.”
      –Venezuelans are desperate for food, medicine and genuine political negotiations. Possibly a new presidential election.
      –Trump has billion$$ in oil sanctions on Venezuela that is hurting them. Pence plans to announce squeezing them with more sanctions.
      –Venezuelans want to be allowed to LIVE, not be pawns for global oil oligarchs and autocrats.

    Cause of the great success of Michelle Obama’s book “Becoming”, I don’t talk much about that President Obama book suppose to be release this year. I think it is this year, can’t wait for that one too.

    Night all:)

    • February 25, 2019 at 1:05 pm

      Just saw the movie – talk about attention to detail and love in every frame. Thoughts about why no Oscar:
      From a family who lost a darling via suicide (hanging): It is No solution, doesn’t end cause and effect and hurts a lot of people. In an alternative world, the ‘logic’ to end it all might have passed in the following 20 minutes/hour.
      -But from the perspective of plot and writer’s endless choice of resolution: imo it’s a rookie choice, an easy plot exit, maybe even a lazy one.
      -For the troubled viewer, suicide may seem to be a timely suggestion, an idea to act on. And for the writer too, it may mean something more.
      I believe Oscar did the right thing in not giving the brilliant Cooper the award. Hope he goes on and let’s us in again + again.

      Congrats and so proud to see the diversity last night!! Oscar has taken a couple of steps forward. Bravo!

    “Mr Guaido hopes (to) will wrest control of the nation’s massive oil reserves from Mr Maduro.”
    “Mr Guaido will need funds if he is to assemble an interim government, and controlling Citgo, the oil firm’s US subsidiary and most valuable foreign asset, would go some way towards fulfilling that requirement.”
    “Cuba said it was clear the US wanted to “forcibly establish a humanitarian corridor under international protection, invoking the obligation to protect civilians and applying all necessary measures”.
    -War Is Peace.

  32. February 25, 2019 at 1:58 pm

    Here we go…reported minutes ago:
    “The vice president announced an increase in U.S. economic sanctions aimed at ousting the Venezuelan autocrat and alluded to the possibility of military action.” https://www.politico.com/story/2019/02/25/mike-pence-venezuela-1184338
    = Billion$$ in Venezuelan Oil has been sanctioned by Trump. Now Pence announces a second round of sanctions.
    =Venezuelan inflations has rocketed to 13 thousand 779% in the last year, with shortages of food and 80 – 90% of all medications nationwide. =Mothers are resort to things like selling sporadic food to buy cigarettes to sell with which to buy a little more food to feed their children – often just chicken skin and bones, bananas and yucca. 70% are Catholic and abortion is forbidden. With no prospects for survival, Moms use dangerous ways to try and abort. Women and children are expendable items as the Oil Oligarchs fight for control over the biggest oil resource in the world.
    –Power mad Trump/Pence/Putin GET OUT OF VENEZUELA!
    –Stick with your Rosneft/Exxon oil shares and attempts to lift sanction on the mega-trillion$$ in the Siberian Arctic.

      The Russian economy is sick. Trump is sick. Are we prepared to become a sick and obedient nation? In denial. Living and breathing on behalf of the privileged: Who are openly subverting the existing order in the name of the global oil and fossil fuel capitalists, autocrats.

    This will change things….but i did not know that men signed up for the draft…when there is no draft

      I remember my son had to sign up for the Selective Service, when he turned 18 (way back in 1987) but I pretty much never thought about it, after that. The U.S. went to an all-volunteer military in 1973, so – luckily – he missed the draft (said his mother back then!). And now his son turns 18 this year – I must remember to ask him if he knows about this, since his older sisters did not have the same requirement and are beyond age 25 at this point. But my youngest granddaughter would be hit with this in a couple years, if this ruling holds (a scary thought). Here’s the link where I confirmed this info:

    Almost fell out of my chair laughing! Accidentally caught Brian William’s show, & he had short Fox skit w/ Don Jr. doing some BS explaining. He’s now wearing beard, etc. I was like: dood, no one is supposed to see yr loose ski mask as you run out of yr robbery! 👀 😎😂

    “How exactly top counterintelligence officials in our nation’s capital came to the shocking conclusion that Donald Trump really might be working for the Kremlin is the big question lurking at the heart of the entire Department of Justice investigation into the current administration. Answering that will reveal the core secrets of this presidency and perhaps change American politics forever.”

    If you’ve read Mr McCabe’s book you have reason to consider the above statement a sober, accurate assessment.

    I’m now more confident than ever that the reason President Obama didn’t drop a ton of bricks on Comey is precisely because he knew that what the United States faced was (is) a massive scale attack by State and Non-State organized crime that is enabled by extensive cooperation of numerous elected and appointed US Officials.
