    So glad the Obamas are modeling what all decent, patriotic Americans should do in welcoming our newest refugees with open arms.

    Good morning TOD family. It’s a beautiful fall day in Montana. It’s currently 34 degrees, high of 74. I think most of the local fires are out or close. So nice not to smell smoke all day. Hope everyone has a beautiful day.

    thx NW, so many unknowns. Imagine fleeing your home (who lives there now?) with your children. And arriving in such a different world. Welcome to our new Afghan friends, thank you Welcome.US, and all caring Americans.

    India administered more than 20 million Covid vaccine doses in a day on Friday in a record-breaking effort to mark PM Narendra Modi’s 71st birthday.

    The effort surpassed the country’s previous daily record of more than 13 million doses on 27 August.

    India aims to vaccinate all eligible Indians by the end of 2021 but experts say the drive needs to pick up a consistent pace to meet the target.

    It has so far given more than 787 million doses of three approved jabs.

    More than half of India’s eligible population – some 588 million people – have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine, according to official data.

    But only about 20% of eligible adults have been fully vaccinated since the beginning of the drive in January.


    at least, our nutjob isn’t an antivaxer. thank god for small mercies.

    One in 500 Americans have died from Covid.

    (Pls tell DeSantis on camera)

    Due to Trump’s denial and criminal neglect,
    hundreds of thousands of Americans died of Covid-19 who otherwise wouldn’t have. Thinking about Trump’s reverse-finger accusation pattern — e.g all the noise when actually trump was the Illegitimate President.
    Am concerned that behind the GOP gross anti-vaccination ploy under President Biden…is an attempt to make Doom’s preventable death numbers seem palatable/forgettable.

    Remarks by President Biden on the Economy

    “Since the pandemic began, billionaires have seen their wealth go up by $1.8 trillion. That is, everyone who was a billionaire before the pandemic began, the total accumulated wealth beyond the billions they already had has gone up by $1.8 trillion. Simply not fair.

    And it’s — how is it possible that 55 of the largest corporations in this country paid zero dollars in federal income taxes? They made over $40 billion in the year 2020, and they’ve paid zero. Think about that. Zero dollars in federal taxes on $40 billion in profits.

    How is it possible that the wealthiest billionaires
    in the country can entirely escape paying income tax on what they’ve made?

    How is it possible for millionaires and billionaires that can pay a lower rate of tax than teachers, firefighters, or law enforcement officers?

    Here’s the simple truth. For a long time, this economy has worked great for those at the very top, while ordinary, hardworking Americans — the people who built this country — have been basically cut out of the deal.”

    • September 17, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      President Biden:
      “We made enormous progress against the virus through the summer, and now we’ve put ourselves in a strong position to battle this Delta variant. That’s why the actions I proposed on vaccines last week are so critical: from requiring federal workers to get vaccinated; requiring healthcare workers to be vaccinated; requiring employers with over 100 employees to institute vaccine and/or test protocols, calling on — for them to be able to know what their employers — their employees are doing before they walk through the door; calling for vaccine or test requirements to enter big venues; and a whole series of steps I proposed to protect our kids in schools.

      Wall Street firms have analyzed the impact of these plans, and they’re projecting that these new requirements will help 12 million more Americans get vaccinated, which will help more businesses stay open and more Americans back to work.

      The data shows that the overwhelming majority of Americans agree with my proposal. That’s — there’s no surprise, given that 76 percent of American adults have already gotten at least one shot.

      But — but we’re facing a lot of pushback, especially from some of the Republican governors. The governors of Florida and Texas — they’re doing everything they can to undermine the lifesaving requirements that I’ve proposed.

      And some of the same governors attacking me are in states with some the strictest vaccine mandates for children attending school in the entire country.”

    Chickasaw woman gets USDA post, one in a string of Indigenous nominees
    by Nancy Marie Spears

    “WASHINGTON – For the first time in history, an Indigenous woman is overseeing U.S. agriculture law –
    but Janie Simms Hipp is just the latest in a number of Native Americans nominated to top posts in the Biden administration. Hipp, a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, was confirmed July 30 by the Senate as general counsel for the Agriculture Department.
    She joins a list of successful Indigenous appointees led by Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, a member of the Pueblo of Laguna who became the first Native American to lead a Cabinet agency when she was confirmed in March.

    Pending nominations include Charles F. Sams III, a member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, who was nominated in August to oversee the National Park Service, and Robert Anderson, a member of the Bois Forte Band”.

    Native America Calling: The Indigenous connection to Mexican Independence Day
    Your National Electronic Talking Circle

    “September 16th is a national holiday in Mexico,
    but it doesn’t mark the day the country achieved independence from Spain.
    It commemorates the day a revered priest rallied his townspeople with his Cry of Independence. The country’s Indigenous people were instrumental in the battles that followed,
    as they fought to get out from under Spain’s oppressive caste system.

    Native America Calling will get the history and explore the role of Indigenous Mexicans in this important commemoration.” (https://www.indianz.com/News/2021/09/16/native-america-calling-the-indigenous-connection-to-mexican-independence-day/)

    Native America Calling: Rethinking Native pageant royalty
    Your National Electronic Talking Circle

    “Summer pageants and fairs offer a chance for young Native women to represent their nations as royalty.
    They carry a title and a platform to educate and inform others about important issues and their culture.
    At the same time, the “Indian Princess” label brings with it a number of problematic stereotypes that don’t fully reflect Native women’s strength, beauty and intelligence.

    Native America Calling will talk about redefining pageants and the ways Native women exemplify poise,
    strength and use the platform to shine a positive light on their communities and inspire others to pursue their
    goals and dreams.”

    America Dissected, podcast.
    Rights & Responsibilities on the Res with Rebecca Nagle

    “Native American tribes were among the hardest hit by COVID-19, losing tribal elders to the virus—and with them irretrievable pieces of their culture and heritage. But no group in America has done more to assure their communities are vaccinated and protected. We speak to Rebecca Nagle, activist, journalist and host of Crooked Media’s This Land podcast about how Native American tribes took on the collective responsibility of vaccinating their communities and what our country can learn from them.”

    MSNBC is now saying there are about 400 “rioters” (my word) at the Justice for J6 rally at the Capitol today, not the 700 the jerks who set it up predicted … and that there are more Capitol Police and others there than demonstrators. I don’t take comfort in any of this, because all they need is another day and another venue to wreak havoc.
