    May he rest in peace.

      We are at a time in our existence globally where the population of politicians with integrity and sound morality is decreasing alarmingly. I’m not an American, but I liked listening to Rep. Cummings because he always came across as a very caring, sincere and honest human being.
      I mourn with you because a great role model of a true public leader has gone on to his eternal rest. Be comforted in the knowledge that he will always be the high standard to emulate for those who plan to serve their country as civil servants. Sweet be his rest.

    I don’t trust Pence and Pompeo, they are on the same level as Trump. Stabbing the Kurds in the back like they did is horrible.

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) (L) points to the crowd alongside presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) (2nd-L) at Prince George’s Community College October 10, 2007 in Largo, Maryland.

        Apparently, he was in hospice a week ago and conducted a meeting (I guess by calling in) with other members of Congress – and they weren’t aware of his location then.

    Good Evening TODVille,

    I learned very early this morning of the passing of the great E. Cummings. There was a gentleness about him, about his words which he chose carefully and which always reflected values uncommon these days in Congress. May he RIP. I didn’t know he was ill. A sweet man. He died young but lived a life full of goodness, resilience, compassion and achievements.

    Meanwhile at 1600 Pennsylvania…. well, let me leave that to itself.

    The friends and family connections is just a front. He’s getting rich by being a fraud and stealing/ selling personal info. Again I ask, why are you still using FB?

      yup….i left FB in 2016

    • October 18, 2019 at 10:35 am

      also see Sherrilyn Ifill op-ed to Zuckerberg’s speech (posted below) using the civil rights movement and Dr King…in his argument about why he should allow disinformation on his platform…

      what is it about white folks who want to corrupt the civil rights movement for their own narrow purposes…

    The civil rights movement was not fought to vindicate free speech rights under the First Amendment. It was a fight to fulfill the promise of full citizenship and human dignity guaranteed to black people by the 14th Amendment. To use the struggle of those extraordinary heroes as a rationale for protecting Facebook users who seek to incite the same kind of division and violence those heroes faced turns that history on its head.

    • 109 Don
      October 18, 2019 at 10:45 am

      At best it is a complete misreading of history, at worst it is to disregard and to disrespect those that paid the ultimate price. To even open up a mouth to say that a struggle which caused death and destruction, and is still being fought by the way, is akin to being able to safely and without consequences air propaganda that is both unconscionable and destructive. Zuckerberg already has enough money to last multiple lavish lifetimes that he doesn’t need to go down this path. So the question begs, why is he doing this? Is it for the advertisement dollars, is it to get more users? Or is it because he doesn’t have a moral compass?

      And why are we “just” several generations behind in terms of building generational wealth? The majority of that so called wealth is generated from athletes and entertainers. And even then that wealth isn’t generational, hell, it isn’t even decade-rational. Case in point, Michael Jordan and Oprah Winfrey. They are billionaires and their wealth isn’t generational. There are a myriad of reasons why we don’t have generational wealth in our community and almost on a daily basis we discuss them here. The first African American Billionaire was Robert Johnson of BET (Black Entertainment Network) for those of you that didn’t know LOL. And this was in 2001, two thousand and freaking one. Hell, I’ve been on my job longer than that.

    “Fox’s Judge Andrew Napolitano said that by awarding himself the G7, Trump has created a
    direct and profound violation of the emoluments clause.” (politicus.usa)
    –Just wondering why foreign governments and leaders would go along with paying Trump to stay at Doral?
    –Not sure why everyone is surprised. He said he was going to do it. That is his first step.
    –He sees himself operating like Putin, bin Salman, and the others. They probably give him notes!
    –He wants to set the agenda “I alone”.
    Trumpsky sees himself as a dictator and he is doing it.
