      Here is my full comment:

      Attention people – especially Black People!!! Spread this around PLEASE

      Take note that President Obama has NOT endorsed a candidate YET. Don’t let Bloomberg’s commercial mis-lead you. I also just heard on 94.7 The WAVE radio station, a Bloomberg spot where he said” if I was a black person, I wouldn’t have the advantages that i do and I want to change that”.

      Black People – don’t forget who authored the STOP & FRISK law.

        Love, love this vid! I’ve passed it on to everyone I know, with message: Pass it on! It might help in turning all & young voters into doing their civic duty. Brilliant! 💞

        I totally agree, GGail, ⚽

        Bloomberg has been all over my teevee w/ ads. Now, the latest ads, he’s got PBO front & central in his messaging. And some of those photos of PBO are early in his 1st term. My question: why all of a sudden is it so important to attach themselves to PBO’s legacy? Well now. Black votes matter, Latino votes matter, POC matter. And who’s the most identifiable President for all these voters? Yup!

        Now, if Moscow Mitch starts those PBO ads in Kentucky, am going to place myself in my “corner chair” w/a flask of moonshine! Icky. My said chair might essplode in protest! 😂 KY must vote this corrupt arse outta Senate. The rest of us must encourage them to do so. And other states to show up en masse & make a clean sweep. Let’s not be distracted by misinformation & shenanigans. America, let’s vote them all out. It’s up to us now. Yes. We. Can. 💞

        So glad you mentioned that! When I first saw that Bloomberg had “used” President Obama in his ad, I was really angry. There is little chance he asked permission first, so he’s misrepresenting, in my book, big time – which is extremely telling about what kind of a person he is, some of which we already knew from his time in NYC.

        Now that I’m venting, I’m also totally annoyed with David Axelrod. I’ve always had the feeling he did not keep a good relationship with President Obama after working for him. Not sure that I ever saw any facts to lead me to that, but I’ve had the feeling. Axelrod was able to “use” his relationship with the Obama campaign and admin to stay viable and on TV, even now. So, now, he’s putting down Joe Biden as part of his responses on panels on CNN, every chance he gets. He goes one step shy of mocking Joe’s speech patterns, even after Joe has revealed more than just this week (for those listening, he’s shared it before this campaign) that he still has trouble with mild stuttering when he’s “really tired.” David Axelrod shared years ago that he has a grown daughter with epilepsy. I’m sure beyond 100 percent that President Obama and VP Joe gave him all the empathy they felt about that, being the type people they were and continue to be. But today David finds it okay to almost cross the line in commenting about Joe’s speech patterns. He’s not saying so much that Joe isn’t getting his point across, it’s more like mocking him for how he talks, in my mind. Who knows, but had to get that off my chest!

        Whether Joe’s the nominee or not, I’m for keeping civility in this never-ending campaign. But sometimes I want to hit certain people with a board. (I like to turn to that expression, because I’ve never hit anybody with a board in my life, and it makes me calm down and laugh every time. The end.)

    • February 8, 2020 at 3:06 pm

      GGail – Rich white candidates like tRump and Bloomberg think black people will fall for their schtick. You are WAY smarter than that! In the unlikely event Bloomberg becomes our nominee, I will hold my nose and vote for him to defeat #AgentOrange. We’ve only had one messed-up caucus, and the talking heads are pretending this is all over.

    I’m new to FB and I have been astounded by the amount of cynicism and doom & gloom that people post – over and over. It’s like they get a fix every time they post some dire article. Hell, we don’t need any outside influence to defeat us, we do it all by ourselves, going down on the fainting couch while clutching pearls. Why??? SMH

      ggail, Let me explain why I post the things I do. I have a lot of FB friends who are very conservative and more than that, they get all their “news” from Fox and/or right-wing radio. They live in their right-wing bubble and all of them are either ill-informed or not informed at all. I know that none of them click on the story and read it. My hope is that at least as they scroll past it, they read the headline. Maybe, maybe not, but that’s my HOPE. I do KNOW that a few of my childhood friends (and couple of them also cousins) have begun to step out of the shadows and ‘like’ or ‘love’ my posts and even occasionally post a short comment. I take that as progress.

      Hope this gives you a beter understanding of where I’m coming from. 🙂 🙂 🙂

        I appreciate you taking the time to give your perspective, but, I am more concerned about how the gloom & doom affects the Dems we need to be encouraged to vote. Let’s all focus on getting enough numbers to defeat the crook!

          Zero worry or concern about every Dem who sees them. Most of them are part of our Knox County Dem Party and some are, like me, leaders……precinct chairs, etc.

    • February 8, 2020 at 1:11 am

      Don’t forget that FB is happily freelancing in mining & giving platforms to anti Democrat trolls, made clear by Zuckerberg & his straight up open eyed support of said trolls & iQ45. He had a chance to actually do right, but chose the abyss. One day very soon, he’ll turn around & find himself as no different from those complicit in crimes, & he can’t even begin to claim that he was taking “orders” as Nazis @ Nuremberg. How many examples of despots does he need? It never, ever ends well. My questions to him: if it’s about money, better believe that currency doesn’t work when you exit Earth. If it’s about yr ideology, then you have all the money to spend in educating yourself. Take a wonderful trip to the Hague & get a lesson in history, both past & current.

      Pardon my rant, my corner chair turned into a primary color kindergarten chair & refused my behind. 😚

        🙂 🙂 🙂 Love your rant, especially about Zuckenberg. As soonas I read it, I thought of what an attorney friend used to say: “I’ve never seen a U-Haul behind a hearse.” Iow, you can’t take it with you. I was talking to a good friend recently who just REALLY sized down and she is still in a house way too big for one person who doesn’t cook, entertain, etc. I reminded her that all the furniture and other things are just ‘stuff’ and that she can’t take it with her when she dies.

        Regarding the links/stories I share on FB: I always check the date and who it is from. Try my best to be very careful with what I share. It is 99% things that are current like what they are doing to our environment or plans for cuts in SS, Medicare, Medicaid………iow, very current things. That’s what I want my very conservative, trump supporting, Fox watching friends to at least read the headline.

      Sometimes I wonder if Axelrod even worked in the Obama administration. It appears that he has a hidden agenda against Biden. It makes me wonder if he got along with Biden when Biden was VP. It is hard to watch Axelrod. Biden has been vetted to the nth degree, while Sanders has not been vetted at all by the media.

        I know one thing – I’m more “done” with Axelrod than I was previously, and I was already on that road. Ugh.

    Just another random thought. Bear w/ me:

    Right now, this minute, am beginning to wonder why Dem candidates are even bothering to spout out this bullshit of “I can beat iQ45”, that’s a media creation coz they want ratings. Just get out there & tout healthcare, raising wages, no kids will ever be put in cages (egrigeous asylum, losing kids. Immigration for whom? Wot), social security safe, Medicare safe, women’s rights, etc., etc. Eff, bring on the Family of Corruption (use of taxpayer monies. Kleg light all that WeThePeople have paid entire klan, with a “k”). They have enough fodder for ads to run 3 months of Sundays plus. By touting “I can beat” iQ45, they’re actually giving him that semblance of power. Treat him like Nancy does, irrelevant liar, rip his lies center stage. Drop the mic & go to next event, leave him on his imaginary empty stage. (He hates that.)

    As a Councilman in #SouthBend, I know why
    @PeteButtigieg
    looked like a deer in headlights last night when talking about systemic racism in the South Bend Police. He tolerated it, he perpetuated it, and last night he lied to millions of Americans about it.

    YOWSER!
