    Always thought Malia resembled her Dad and Sasha looked like her Mother. Both girls resemble each parent to some extent and still have their own individual look. Sasha has changed the most, but that is probably because she was the youngest when we got to know them.

    Hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day!

    Stunning top photo – beauty and strength projected from the core of each of them. If the future is shaped by women like the four of them our species will have the opportunity to evolve further.

    Goodnight TOD.

          Thank you for your help. I have a Mac and use Safari. Not on Twitter, either. I don’t know if you need to have a Twitter account to copy. I will check it out another day to see if I can get it.

          • May 14, 2019 at 12:41 am

            No, you don’t have to have a twitter account to view/click tweets. Unfortunately, I’m unfamiliar with saving/downloading a photo on Mac.

      I think speculators benefit from a stock market that wildly fluctuates. Not normal people at all. My IRA which is tiny has for the first time flat lined for two years since Trump was elected. Also the likelihood that the administration is giving tips on buying and selling to friends has got to be 100% given their record of corruption and lawlessness.

    1) The loss of ice in the Arctic is rapidly increasing the pace of global warming.
    2) Loss of permafrost releases methane which further increases the pace of global warming.
    3) Which increases sea levels around the world and all low-lying coastal areas.
    4) We have to be all about the Arctic.
    “The Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the planet, showing temperature increases twice as large as global averages.
    Sea ice, snow cover, glaciers and permafrost are all diminishing due to Arctic warming. Vulnerable ecosystems in the Arctic are under threat,” reports the Arctic Council. “Climate change causes rapidly changing living conditions for 4 million Arctic inhabitants. Hunting, fishing and herding activities are threatened by changes in snow and ice conditions. Traditional livelihoods of Indigenous Peoples in the Arctic are at risk.
    So Arctic governments, including Indigenous representatives, have been using the tool of consensus in order to meet that challenge. The Arctic Council includes eight Arctic nations: Canada, the Kingdom of Denmark (including Greenland and the Faroe Islands), Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russian Federation, Sweden, and the U.S. In addition, it’s the only member-state organization that includes six Indigenous permanent members representing the Aleut, Inuit, Athabaskan, Gwich’in, Sami, and Russian Indigenous Peoples of the North.”

      Pompeo refused to use the words “climate change” or black carbon in any joint statement = the U.S. faction ‘hoax’ spin.
      International Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Council: “This is the first time the Arctic Council has failed to issue a declaration at the end of a two-year chairmanship, and it’s a serious blow to the future of what is supposed to be a consensus based body…(Thus) Arctic Council ministers agreed to release a seven-paragraph joint statement that avoided mentioning any of the threats and challenges faced in the Arctic…”

    • May 13, 2019 at 11:46 am

      ”We need a more just, peaceful world, one that is achievable with consensus driven discussions and the critical participation of Indigenous peoples…The challenge of global warming, ocean acidification, and the warming of the Arctic, are the greatest existential threat to the future of humankind.” (https://truthout.org/articles/us-plays-word-games-in-arctic-council-consensus-while-ignoring-indigenous-people/)
      –Meanwhile, the U.S. faction is spinning and undermining the Arctic Council’s credibility and genuine leadership at this planetary unprecedented moment.

    • May 13, 2019 at 11:58 am

      1) The U.S. stonewalled the Arctic Council agreement.
      2) Because Big Oil and their enablers represent only Oil, Gas and Mining.
      3) They deny the reality of global warming = one million extinctions so far.
      4) They acknowledge zero.
      5) Big Oil wants the Arctic for drilling, mining and shipping.
      6) Pompeo stymied what should have been an important Arctic statement.
      Pompeo is a big nobody assigned with the role of torpedoing the planet.

  17. May 13, 2019 at 12:00 pm

    Sequel: Pompeo is meeting with Putin tomorrow. While Trump watches tv.
    imo we have to stop saying “Trump this” and “Trump that”.
    Trump NOTHING.

  18. May 13, 2019 at 12:03 pm

    Global warming.
    We’ve been bamboozled into saying “climate change” which works for the anti-science meme crowd. Did you see the reference on “VICE’?
    The term is global warming.

      THIS!!!!!!! Matt Murphy is correct. Oddly enough, I do not believe that they all were against the TPP. I believe that they were jumping on the far left bandwagon to not feel left out. HRC even changed her mind and jumped on that losing bandwagon. I hear some pundits wondering how VP Joe is going to explain his vote for TPP. I have no doubt that he is eager to explain what we are missing now, and how China is filling the void.

    Can anyone out there show that this pretender, Grifter+Fam, emporer pretender has no clothes? It bothers me that in order to open the eyes of 99% of the nation, it will take laying bare his taxes. Yet, folks know he’s full of BS & fox propaganda. Yes, it’s a constitutional crisis. Totally brought about by Turtle dood. In my thinking, I doubt am wrong, I see Turtle dood as the MoFo who’s orchestrated the disaster we’re in. And all for turning the courts back to his illiterate heydays. Their wet dream since 1950s. Enhanced in 1960s. Ewww! Sorry, that visual gave me the vapors! 😂 (younguns, it had a diff meaning in my grandmother’s times, not what it might mean these days). 👀😂

    MT Governor Steve Bullock pre-announcement video today “highlights Montana’s robber baron history”.
    “With their money, they bought politicians, attacked unions, exploited workers, and left us with a toxic reminder of what happens when our democracy is put up for sale,” Mr. Bullock said of Montana’s powerful copper magnates, as he stood over a polluted old mine in Butte.
    “Today we see evidence of a corrupt system all across America.”
    –Thanks to Steve Bullock, MT is the only state that stood up to dark money and won.

    “”California jury ruled Monday that Monsanto must pay a record $2 billion in damages to a couple that was diagnosed with cancer after using the company’s weedkiller Roundup. “We were finally allowed to show a jury the mountain of evidence showing Monsanto’s manipulation of science, the media, and regulatory agencies to forward their own agenda despite Roundup’s severe harm to the animal kingdom and humankind,” said Michael Miller, an attorney for Alva and Alberta Pilliod.””

      -End Bayer-
      “The jury ruled that Monsanto — which was acquired by the German pharmaceutical giant Bayer last year — is liable for the Pilliods’ non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), the third such ruling in less than a year.”
      Would be nice for my neighbor to be compensated for multiple cancers, after years of growing up on a farm that used Roundup spray.
      But he is dead.

      Dandelions are the first line of nutrition for our bees.
      Bees are now endangered, thus pollination and our food supply is endangered.
      e.g. Our local football field for children and parks have dandelions all around the edges: Means Roundup has been sprayed in the large middle area of green where children, adults and pets play.
      –No dandelions means the area has been poisoned.
      –Let’s see life-giving dandelions in every yard!!
