    Pete Souza recorded the Obama Presidency with artistry and affection. The fact that he can now pull a photo from the vast archive to throw shade at #45 is giving me something to hang on to.

      I saw it, too, and agree. Pete acts more like a brother and friend to President Obama, which is a credit to his former boss, of course. Not to mention Pete, too!

      Motive? They kill because they can. Great sport. Fun times. No known consequences or changes on the horizon. Words are powerful but actions are necessary. No changes creates the danger of making this acceptable and saying boys will be boys. Firm gun regulations. Just say NO to the gun lobby NRA.

    About two weeks ago my son and I were at the gym in our subdivision. I was on the treadmill and he was somewhere else lifting weights. The treadmills are located right at the front door as soon as you walk in. Anyway I was on the treadmill and this young guy in his early twenties walks in and sits in a chair right by the front door. He wasn’t doing anything but just looking around. For some reason it freaked me out, he was white and dressed in all black. I couldn’t even concentrate on my workout. In the past I wouldn’t have paid any attention to some young white guy going about his business. About ten minutes later the lady that runs the gym came up and shook his hand, apparently he came in to join the gym. All the time as he was sitting there I’m thinking about what to do if he had pulled out a gun or something, was it to run towards him or run away from him? After we left the gym I’m thinking to myself, did I just profile this guy?

    • September 1, 2019 at 9:42 am

      Honestly, this is what is happening to us as the veil of trust is getting thinner and thinner and thinner. We’re hyper-alert to danger because it’s happening all around us and it’s destroying our sense of trust in just being able to be pursue normal daily activity. The white supremacists have been given the signal and they are building an army of nutcases with guns, assault weapons. It’s a really crazy way to live. But I think we really have to rely on our intuition right now. It’s all we have.

      MassacreMitch has some bills waiting for him when he gets back on the 9th:
      Background checks (90% national approval), a bill to close the Charleston loophole, Klobuchar’s bill to to close the boyfriend loophole and women from domestic abusers.
      If police officers can face white men willing to shoot a baby in the face, people with military-style weapons and high capacity magazines that wipe out a crowd in seconds, weeny gop-ers in Congress who have children and grandchildren can confront compromised MassacreMitch and the failing NRA.

      Now that David Koch is dead, maybe the GOP noose is looser.
      McConnell is that guy who has blocked jobs bills for 10 years, is in league with Putin and Deripaska and
      who has blccked election protection measures 8 times. We don’t owe him a thing except consequences.

        Their are a line of billionaires and millionaires just waiting to take David Koch’s place. And their agendas are carbon copies of Koch’s.

        • September 1, 2019 at 11:49 am

          Yes there was a (timely) announcement recently that they want to be known as the “Koch network” and not the Koch brothers. Yes the Koch network is all over Alaska right now working on its destruction.
          So I agree. But imo when the figurehead is gone, there’s a chink in the filthy armor.

      Don, I don’t get it either. It must be a white man thing, because I know that if black men were buying those AR-15 like white men do, if black men were committing these mass shootings, something would be done about those weapons. Something would have been done to ban black men from buying them.

      For struggling households a thousand dollars is a lot of money. Make no mistake, this was no trade war, you don’t engage in a trade war with China. You don’t go to war with the very country that you borrow money from.

    Hello and Good Evening TODbots.

    • September 1, 2019 at 8:46 pm

      Was this before she accused Pres Obama of being dishonest for supporting TPP….have not heard any of them say that should have supported TPP

      • September 1, 2019 at 9:46 pm

        Great question. Evening Sheila.

      • September 2, 2019 at 7:40 am

        It’s from 2016. She dogged him pretty much all the time when he was President.

        • September 2, 2019 at 7:47 am

          This pretty much sticks with me. She did not just disagree with Pres Obama on TPP, which I could accept, she inferred that he was dishonest, trying to pull something on the American people. I have a hard time getting past that. Interesting for all her plans, does she have a plan on trade or does she agree with Trump’s approach

          • September 2, 2019 at 8:14 am

            I think I posted a ton on TPP when it was in progress because it was such a massive and detailed plan that PBO and his esteemed crew worked on for 6 years and when it was finally finished, it was a really great plan. And YES, you’re absolutely right, Warren all but called PBO a liar over it and it was infuriating at the time and still bothers me immensely because she questioned his integrity. She often criticized him in public and her undermining of him and TPP is the one of the main reasons it was killed in the Senate. UGH UGH UGH

            • September 2, 2019 at 9:38 am

              It might have died anyway but her questioning of his integrity was uncalled for. And look at us. What a mess we are in now
              None of the candidates talk about trade.

    About David Koch:
    “I will not mourn an evil man”:
    (https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/9/1/1881491/-I-will-not-mourn-an-evil-man)
    “He was worth, at the time of his death, $51 billion. While he did donate some of his fortune to worthy causes, it was only to project an image of public service. His brother Charles’ own press release about his death is nothing more than a whitewashing of a lifetime of doing everything possible to acquire ever more profits.
    At every turn of his life he did everything possible to change American society and American politics into his own twisted vision.”

    • September 1, 2019 at 6:27 pm

      “Years from now, when he is nothing more than a memory, and his name is on a few buildings,
      sea levels will continue to rise.
      Polar bears, among other species, will be gone,
      the result of a combination of deforestation, climate change, and loss of habitat.
      We will lose what we once took for granted. David Koch could have made a positive difference for change. Instead, he chose to fund conservative think tanks such as the CATO Institute and Americans For Prosperity spreading lies about climate change, undermining the media, and subverting scientific research. All so he could continue to make billions in the fossil fuel industry.” (Andersen)

  39. September 1, 2019 at 7:13 pm

    Nazgûl:
    KOCH brothers (McConnelll) are like Nazgûl.
    Wraiths who only live(d) for the power of the planet-killing fossil fuel industry = the Ring.
    Tolkein described the Nazgûl: The horses can see but their riders cannot,
    So the riders use horses and people as spies. Greed and power for riches has overcome their ability to live. Close encounters with the Nazgûl causes unconsdiousness. imo this is like politicians who can no longer see life, or living beings and have entirely lost all heart. Ringwraiths are without love and have only blind greed.
    While desiring life, they hate it…hate you.

    • September 2, 2019 at 12:07 pm

      Sometimes i think the candidates miss the boat…

      Hillary Clinton had a great economic package…she had a plan for health care of coal miners…she had foreign policy plans…it did not matter…because folks wanted the white man who would stem the tide of equal rights for disenfranchised folks and implement a white nationalist agenda…

      even now with their farms and businesses going down the tube …folks will still vote for Trump and the Republicans..these folks will still vote for the folks who allow guns to put all of us at risk…

      it is because …they identify with whiteness and white privilege…

      i want the candidates to address this…to see that to these folks they can lose their health care…etc…but they believe they will still be superior because of their whiteness…and for the record …it is not just the white working class who believes this…that is why some members of the press have a hard time reporting Trump…

      sometimes i feel so discouraged…..
