    Good afternoon! Nerdy, as always, thank you for being here for us!

      hey Alycee…DITTO for me

      i was coming here to post this bit of news….
      Will be glad when we get our chance to vote

      • February 15, 2020 at 4:03 pm

        I, too, will be glad to vote in both the PE & GE. I just wish folks would calm the f* down, stop listening to the newstainers, do some research, the vote in the PE for the candidate of their choice. I’m so sorry Kamala left the race early; I really believe that had she stayed in, the polls, money, and votes would have broke her way. Now, I’m back to Biden. Tired of the msm interfering in the election; they are supposed to report NOT put their foot on the scale…

    Whatever anyone thinks of Mayor Mike Bloomberg he is definitely showing the world exactly the person Trump is and has always been.

    And, he’s just getting started and doesn’t have to ask anyone to write a check to help him put the real Trump on display, incessantly from now until Election Day.

      So happy to wake up today with the time to concentrate on these positive stories. We get so deep into what the awful ones are doing, we truly need to be reminded – and remind ourselves – of all the good in the world. Of course, there’s “good” and then there’s “good through the influence of Barack Obama.” ❤

      Rev. Barber is totally correct. The media does not talk about all of the horrible stuff that this administration is doing to the country. If they mention it, it is in passing and only spend a few minutes on it. They spend days talking about his disgusting tweets and lies.

      As we all know, Walter Shaub was one of the first to leave the orange blob administration and his role in the field of ethics in government, in protest, and has been one of my go-to people since. He walked the walk, and is still concerned and still at it.

      I should stay out of this, but it is so sad that the social media bots stoop to this.
      Those were different times decades ago….many were interested in building bridges to the Russian people.
      Like Michaeil McFaul, I studied the Russian language. One needs no other reason than that one loves people, empathizes, and wants to understand. When visiting Finland very briefly several years ago, I met a young man whose gentle presence and physical appearance were uncannily like my own son’s. He was from a poor Russian village just hours away – and was not responsible for Putin’s actions and plans to control the world with his Oil and Gas buddies.

        The Russian people are wonderful. The Russian government is not. Big difference.

      • February 16, 2020 at 7:37 pm

        Not wrong to build bridges during the Cold War.

      • February 16, 2020 at 8:01 pm

        Literacy in the arts and music very high for ordinary people, and institutions were nationalized, or paid by unions, and very inexpensive, that is what Sanders is talking about. Community life was at the center. Historic preservation a given. Yugoslavia was “open door” when I spent time there decades ago, and the cultural experience was similarly stunning. At this event Senators were relaying this information, and correcting America’s misinformed view.

      I read this story this morning, but just like night my son wanted to invite a classmate over so that they can walk to the park in our subdivision. My wife and I both told him no, under no circumstances will we let him walk anywhere by himself or with a friend. Some of his friends walk home from school, we don’t even allow that. Are we over protective, yes, maybe, but when I read stories like this it only reinforces what both I and my wife talk to our son about.

        I’m so so sorry. This just makes me want to cry. My son never had to even THINK about anything like this ever happening to him. Ever. This is so fucked up. My heart hurts. I would be just like you and your wife are with your son. It’s not safe for him. Maybe one day in our lifetime, it will be. I hope so.

    Watching “Washington” on The History Channel. I noticed in one part, they described how he became the man he was. One of the historians telling the tale mentioned, ” … like Barack Obama, like Gerald Ford, Washington was raised by a single mother” (in Washington’s case, after his father passed away, at a time when he saw his mother rise to the occasion in meeting all challenges).

    Obviously, the person who developed that particular narration is an Obama follower, just as we are! #Smiling

    “Authoritarian governments almost always operate in a style that resembles organized crime outfits.
    Despite their ostentatious populism, such regimes exist to enrich thuggish rulers and enable corruption in high places. The Trump administration is a perfect example.
    But in order to maintain an aura of legitimacy, especially in a country with democratic norms and traditions, authoritarian bosses constantly proclaim their devotion to justice, their determination to right wrongs, and their adherence to law and order.
    So even as President Donald Trump and his attorney general, Bill Barr, pervert the legal system to cover up official crimes and protect presidential cronies, they are creating a narrative of justification for those acts.”

    “Bad enough that a tyrant is destroying American democracy.
    Now an oligarch is trying to buy the presidency.
    Michael Bloomberg’s net worth is over $60 billion. The yearly return on $60 billion is at least $2 billion – which is what Bloomberg says he’ll pour into buying the highest office in the land. His paid staff is already three times as large as Trump’s, five times Joe Biden’s. He’s using his fortune to woo staffers away from other campaigns.”

    “Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee is putting Bloomberg onto the debate stage
    by abandoning the individual-donor threshold that it used for the first eight debates,
    presumably because Bloomberg – the self-funded billionaire – doesn’t take donations.”

    President Obama tweeted this a.m.
    “Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act,
    paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in
    American history.”

    Turns out Trump’s economy is 6th out of the last 10 presidential terms.
    (https://www.politicususa.com/2020/02/17/trump-economy-6th-best.html)

  109. February 17, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    “Trump’s biggest contribution to economic policy was a massive tax cut for the wealthy and corporations
    that he promised would generate 6% growth, jobs, and pay for itself. None of these things have happened.
    Growth has slowed, the tax cut has blown a trillion-dollar hole in the deficit, and the wave of good-paying jobs never came. The Trump tax cut had no positive impact on jobs.” (politicus.usa)
