        You are welcome, mtm! The website is easiest to use for following, or subscribe and the links will come to your inbox upon release of every film.. there will be several more this year, and Discover Humanity will be on the ground filming in Asia-Pacific crisscrossing with PBO and MO while they are there building leadership programs! So cool!

    Respect is earned. He gets none

      Trump’s vile remarks about the death of the ISIS leader got me thinking how bloodthirsty he is – he revelled in the horror. Babies and children are being cruelly abducted, separated from their loved ones, neglected, get sick, and some die. Twofer msg to his base and way to rile ISIS…

        He also loves to distract… from what’s troubling him. Now, it’s the impeachment! And his phony taxes!!!

    Re-read ‘1984’ this year. Questions – some c/o Fromm:
    Can man forget his longing for freedom, for dignity, for love? Can he forget he is human? What about unlimited pain and suffering on others by the power elite? Having the power to inflict pain upon another living being from birth to corpse? (“Slavery is Freedom”.) Will we notice by what means our thoughts are being diminished by power over? What power aside from consumption will we be afforded? Democracy is destroyed when we constantly battle for truth: “Whatever the Party says is true”.

    Mika & Joe must understand that finally (after 2.5 years of Trump abuse) Americans chanting at the baseball game was us fighting back against his violence, cruelty, lies, self-interest, abuse of power, and self-delusion. And as how we’re not his sidekicks, won’t lay down, will never do or die. Done.

    Oregon Republican Greg Walden joins GOP exodus from House as he announces his retirement

    Walden, an 11-term lawmaker and ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said he was confident he would be reelected but said it was time to “pursue new challenges and opportunities.”
    Walden becomes the 21st Republican to announce they are resigning, retiring or seeking another office as the GOP faces tough odds to reclaim the majority in 2020.

    Benen:
    “Consider Trump’s comments yesterday while announcing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s demise.
    [W]e are leaving soldiers to secure the oil. And we may have to fight for the oil. It’s okay.
    Maybe somebody else wants the oil, in which case they have a hell of a fight.
    But there’s massive amounts of oil.
    And we’re securing it for a couple of reasons.
    Number one, it stops ISIS, because ISIS got tremendous wealth from that oil. We have taken it. It’s secured. Number two – and again, somebody else may claim it, but either we’ll negotiate a deal with whoever is claiming it, if we think it’s fair, or we will militarily stop them very quickly.”
    “[W]hat I intend to do, perhaps, is make a deal with an ExxonMobil or one of our great companies to go in there and do it properly.”
    -Tell Trump our allies the Kurdish people he betrayed and got killed to achieve his goal are not cartoon cutouts.

      How about Trumpsky’s sudden withdrawal from Syria after a secret deal with Erdogan, without consulting with the U.S. military or IC, which almost messed up their operation. How about what happened because of Trump to our allies the Kurds? The facts don’t count?
      -Let the Kurdish peoples have “one good day”.
      -Let the babies and toddlers in the jails have “one good day”.

    Um maybe
    Putin could set up shop drilling oil here in the U.S. because you know “there’s massive amounts of oil”.
    Or maybe Trump could go (in person) to East Siberia and try his oil heist there after forcing out the locals?

      Besides the cords, the eyes not focusing on one focal point, the camera time listed, the cameraman was center front in the way of where they would be watching, notice how the bodies of those on the sides are facing into the table and their head is sideways. If they were watching a lengthy military action their bodies would be facing front in the photo also.

      Apparently that’s a statement with huge implications. As Jonathan Alter said on Lawrence’s show tonight about it, there’s a “patriotic surge” going on!

  50. October 28, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Am so techie challenged now & then. Without going via Twitter or same kind social media, is there a way to post my own photo to TOD? Have the most beautiful sunset, peaceful photo taken on our recent trip for Bro’s memorial. There were several gorgeous sunsets & sunrises. Thought I could share that sense of peace. A sense of taking a breath & taking a breath & just simply appreciating nature’s beauty & bounty. 💞

      I’d love to see your photo – but I can’t answer the tech question!

    • October 29, 2019 at 8:47 am

      Hey, Gazelle. Other TODers have had success using a third party image hosting site like flickr, SmugHug or even Google photos. Once you post a photo on those kinds of sites, they produce a URL, which can then be copied and pasted here. Maybe someone else who’s tried it can chime in.

      I agree Gazelle, I am techie challenged. We would love to see the sunset. Seems like those who always helped with tech aren’t around. Hopefully someone will help and we’ll get to see the picture.

    For tonight’s music appreciation moment, I thought I’d share some sad but gorgeous music.

    First, we have the 🌊 : Billie Eilish’s haunting original “When the Party’s Over (by the way, this kid is just 17 years old — incredible)…

    and next is the 🔥: an amazing cover of the same song by Lewis Capaldi.

    I love this perfect comment on YouTube comparing the two versions:
    “Billie’s version is when you hold it all in and cry to yourself in bed all night.
    Lewis’ version is when you can’t hold it in and let it all out in painful screams and cries in front of the person.”

    Yes, most definitely. Enjoy!

    Finally, retired Gen. McCaffrey mentions on MSNBC that the “whimpering and crying” sounds trump says the ISIS leader made during the raid (if true) probably came from the three CHILDREN he had dragged with him, as he ran. I haven’t been able to think about those poor children, but trump made it worse … and maybe by this being brought out in the open, they will stop playing his sick remarks about the sounds.
