    Congrats, Meta! They really lost their damn minds trying to make a scandal of what President Obama wore. Really, they were just jealous he looked so fine in it.

    it seems as if US Senators do not have to resign their seat in order to run for another elected office…but the House does…and to add something else…Bernie Sanders has filed to run for relection in 2024 as a US Senator…as an INDEPENDENT…lawd..lawd..

    Do you think that Perez and the DNC are feaful of what Sanders might do if they do not let him in…we saw how he turned his supporters against Sec Clinton in 2016….

    and it appears that in IOWA…when he mentioned SEC Clinton’s name in a campaign speech the crowd booed her…booed her…IMAGINE THAT….so just like Trump he uses Hillary Clinton to arouse his base…he must be soundly defeated in the primary…

    Happy weekend, TOD ohana. Reminder: we Spring forward in most states tonight.
    Until we get used to the new names, I will sign my post with my former username: CEB

    • 10 cd4biden
      March 9, 2019 at 11:35 am

      Thank you, CEB. It is going to take a while for my crusty ol’ brain to remember who is who now. I think I may need to make a cheat sheet.

      Would love it if renamed TODers would sign in for a few days with their original name somewhere in their post. Helps me learn, but also helps me to not worry about you, about where you are and if you are all right when I don’t see your original name for a while.

      As a few others have said, it was very troubling for a few days when there were so few people commenting and so many regulars missing from our daily conversations. You are an important of TOD and we love you all dearly. So very glad to have you back with us.

    reports are that Beto has already decided not to run for the senate.

    Based on that, there is one reason I want Beto to get into the race => which is marginalize the role the Vermonter.

    Beto would be providing an alternative to some of the people away from BS and to Beto’s side.

    Beto would also be another motivating force for some groups of young people to come into the Democratic party grassroots mobilization.

    from what we saw in TX, at least Beto is able to campaign while not attacking other Democrats … like someone who we know thrives in the talk of ” getting rid of Establishment Dems”;

    that way, BS can be beaten, again, without him trying to hide behind the talk of “rigged primary”;

      Nothing like making a lot of money for the media to finally recognize what millions all over the world have known for yours. The power brokers are always behind the times when it comes to what the rest of us, the grassroots really care about. Women, and Black women in particular, are always underestimated.

        People who were not born during the horrors of polio, small pox or the ravages of other diseases that vaccines have all but eradicated just do not get how horrible and deadly so called childhood diseases can be. Their willful ignorance should not be allowed to hurt others.

Am I to presume there are some TODers preparing themselves for some lovely dreams tonight? Only saying that cuz it’s too early here on the West Coast to enjoy what I know you are all enjoying with undivided attention at this moment. 🙂

      OMG!! I sit on our County’s Election Advisory Committee and we have been researching these 2 vendors and one other for the past year as we need to purchase new voting machines asap. And the final choice of vendor is being decided right now. Also these 2 vendors have been certified by our wonderful Sec of State Alex Padilla. How did this get by all these people? Or is it just that techies can figure out how to hack just about anything as soon as it hits the market? Will there ever be a safe way for us to vote again? We have used paper ballots forever, but this means we may have to go back to manual counting. I’ve forwarded this info to the committee members and our Registrar. We meet on Friday, so I am curious to see what they say.

      • March 10, 2019 at 3:27 pm

        I’m SO glad you sit on this commission! Imagine if they were to proceed without this information. Surprised Padilla is behind the curve. I know Jennifer Cohn has reached out to him over time.

I keep telling them to just read TOD, that it is a site with so many amazing people who bring the most inrcredible info to everyone here. I have learned so much here, still. Like I just had to google Jennifer Cohn, thank you meta. I never knew about her. I am so grateful for all of you. xoxoxo

      Oh, Nerdy, I am sitting here in tears for this poor man and his wife. So brave of him to tell his journey, to really bring it home how horrible the twisted ideas of Republican legislators, and some “Christian’s” are. I have a 3 yr old granddaughter and I remember my daughter going several times for ultraounds as she was over 40 yr old. Thinking of Robert Kahne, or anyone, having to endure another 20+ wks of pregnancy knowing your baby you are carrying will not live, wondering if because you haven’t felt it move for a few hours, that it might have already passed away. The mental anguish caused by this is unfathomable. Bless this man for his courage, and I pray they are willing, when they are ready, to try again.

    I do not know if any of you are already, or are considering, immediately blocking messages in your timeline which have the most insulting (you know which insults I am are talking about) comments that are already out of bounds of human decency.

    I do not care which person these individuals maybe directly responding to, but if I see them, I immediately take an extra step to search for their account and then immediately block them …. these are people I never want to see spreading their evil messages.

      I think Julian Castro is very inspirational and impressive. He gets a look on his face at times – a serious look – that shows, to me, that he’s more real than many are, about what he espouses. He means what he says, feels it in his heart, and isn’t afraid to say it. Hope he has a big future in our nation’s politics. Also hope I’m not reading him wrong, because that would be disappointing 🙂

        March 11, 2019 at 7:49 pm

        Julian Castro reminds me of Jimmy Schmidt (sp?) in the last season of The West Wing. He was the Democratic candidate for President against Allen Alda the Republican candidate. The words used in that debate were genius. Julian could be that guy.

      I have been thinking from the start of a Biden (for foreign policy, experience and world recognition) /Harris ticket for the first four years then pivoting to Harris/Beto or Harris/? For the second four years.
      I keep hearing Bernie Sanders and I will admit he would be my last choice as I really do not like him. However, I would choose BS over DJT.

        Too many people don’t seem to realize that animals don’t dance and sing like Disney wildlife, nor are they so-called trained. I worry about young children who have grown up on animated stories about wild animals not realizing how dangerous they are, but grown-ass women should know better. Going over a barrier, no keepers in sight, wtf did she think would happen?
