      My hopes for “Mueller is Coming” are low…at best. Though I agree with everything in this video about “Collusion”, Muller’s report said their was not enough info to actually say the President colluded with Russia. You and I and millions of others may not see it that way…but Mueller did. Obstruction of Justice is the only element is Mueller’s report that stated he could not wipe the President clean of.
      Barr – in his presentation to America wiped the President clean on everything. That was crafted to fool Americans and it has worked. Can Mueller answering questions from congress change the narrative that so many Americans have today? I hope so…but I’m tired of having my hopes trampled on…again and again and again…..

    “Trump’s ‘Go Home’ invective echoes Naz incitement against Jews:”
    “In 1938, the German company Gunther and Co. came out with its brand new board game, “Juden Raus.” Participants in the game, which became immensely popular, had to extract Jewish citizens from their German cities to “concentration points,” over which hung a banner reading “Auf nach Palästina!” – Off to Palestine.”

    –The first player to successfully relocate six Jews from Germany to Palestine was the winner.”

      = NAZI incitement against the Jews.

    • July 20, 2019 at 2:53 pm

      “In its promotion, the company boasted that Juden Raus was an “up-to-date and outstandingly jolly party game for grown-ups and children.” After five years of Nazi rule, expelling Jews to “where they came from” was as natural and desirable as buying Boardwalk and Park Place.”

    (gotta say still having problems with the comment box and TOD site being all the same color. A contrasting color would help so much…just the part where we write…it was formerly grey.)

      I’m color blind so everything looks kinda off to me, when my wife and I go out she has to dress me. Even when I’m out of town attending job related seminars my wife would have me send her a picture or video of what I’m wearing just so I look half way decent.

      • July 20, 2019 at 8:49 pm

        Thanks Don – I looked it up. “Men are much more likely to be colorblind than women because the genes responsible for the most common, inherited color blindness are on the X chromosome.” (ttps://nei.nih.gov/health/color_blindness/facts_about) My thing is seeing tons of color and detail. happy about that. But for some reason the changeover to one color on our site is having an effect.

          That happened to me once before, I used to comment on a website and they changed their color scheme and I was totally thrown off by the color combo that it was a hassle for me to post. So I left, it was a movie review website. I don’t think appreciated my sarcasm anyway.

    “Border Patrol Agent Calls Migrant Prison Camp a
    “Scene From a Zombie Apocalypse.”
    “His colleagues, he said, wore surgical masks and rubber gloves because there was “sickness and filth everywhere….The children seemed about the same age as his 2-year-old son, but that’s where the similarities ended. “My kid would have been running laps around that entire building, nonstop,” the agent said. “But the boys my kid’s age, they were just there. They weren’t running or playing, even though they had been pent up all day.”
    The agent said he suspected that the kids were lethargic
    because they hadn’t been given enough to eat…
    His interactions with individual immigrants, he said, are a blur. He vaguely recalled a government staffer combing lice out of a little girl’s hair; 7- and 8-year-olds pacing in circles and sobbing inconsolably because they’d been separated from their parents; a teenage mother who’d swaddled her baby in a filthy sweatshirt that she’d borrowed from another detainee because she’d been forced to throw away the clothes she brought.”

      “What keeps him in now, even as his job has morphed into one he and his wife are uncomfortable talking about in public, is that he earns about $100,000 a year, including overtime and holiday pay.
      He has a top-of-the-line health insurance plan that, among other things, covered nearly the entire cost of his child’s birth. In a little more than a decade, when he turns 51, he’ll be eligible to retire with a full pension…He does his work with blinders on to everything but his family and the finish line.”

      We saw the video of the little girl who wakes up at night because she is hungry. What did she do wrong?
      Sophie’s choice….making a 3 year old decide between parents. Children facing judges alone.
      Pence better stay down on his knees because we are coming for him too.

    50 years ago today I was 12. My friend at the time Scott lived across Central Ave. from me at 13th ST in downtown Albuquerque (Central AV was the famed Route 66!). He wheeled his 12″ B&W TV across to my house on a its wobbly, tipsy little cart and we watched the landing. One of, if not the most inspiring and amazing accomplishments of Mankind and the United States of America. NOW? We’ve advanced so much further in technology, but have fallen so far back in the last few years in basic decency, unity and pride

    Hi TOD family! It feels good to be able to put aside all the recent wedding plans (& execution) etc in my family and to return to normal (even though it’s a tired normal). I have no idea why I’ve been feeling so tired as I actually did very little of the planning! Anyhoo, for those of you who met Offspring in DC in 2016, he’s now married (to an American), if you can believe it. They did a terrific job lining up things just the way they wanted, and along with lots of your countrymen/women at the wedding there was an awful lot of live singing and dancing. 🙂 One really enjoyable item was when the groom played piano and the bride sang a piece that was written and composed by both. Both are trained musicians. So now, I’m on my own – Sniff-sniff. 😉 Not that I mind.

        Many who spoke to me at the end, and in the days afterwards, said they had a *great* time! For me it was my first karaoke wedding so it was a bit unusual, but there were admittedly some beautiful voices there that even non-musical enjoyed. 🙂 🙂 🙂 You would have had a ball, I think.

        ‘Enjoy’ = That’s the plan, 😉 though at the moment I do feel kind of solitary. Notice I didn’t say ‘lonely’ because most of the time I *like* being by myself.

      Imagine:
      ALIENS arrive on your east coast. As they moved westward they take your land.
      If you resist they try to exterminate you. If you survive they put you on tiny unproductive plots in the desert or the swamp and tell you to make a go of it. Your children are taken from you, put into institutions and punished if they use your language(s) or traditions.
