Thank you for posting this!

I am making a note to get this issue of Rolling Stone (yes, I am that old that i still like paper back ups to what is on the net!). It is a wonderful timeline. Years from now I can show this to my grandsons, who are now 12 and 10 and their lives have been very much changed by this and they will it will not ever be "quickly forgotten" as the orange monster has suggested. I want them to know this story with the details and this writer has them down very well.

We are going to be fine...eventually.

I hope!

I guess much of that depends on if the trumpsters can see what is in front of their faces. Finally.

Can we all just be Enlanders today?

I was very touched by the Queen's address. I told my daughter to play it for my grandsons so they would know what leaders SHOULD sound like!

She never once accused the NHS workers of stealing supplies!

If people in New York and California are now expected to stay in their homes...

is trump going to be going to Mar-a-lago?


What has been the longest amount of time during his "administration" has he actually stayed at the White House?

Here is a catchy tune from Willie! For Beto and all of America!

ANOTHER post about Facebook!!!!

I use Facebook and i enjoy it. It keeps me in touch with people I have history with. Yes, I have to roll my eyes a lot and ignore them. I like to think they notice I am not liking some of their stuff, but anyway...

I think I have come to the conclusion that it is the same folks who were bashing Kaepernik and those who chose to take a stand against the injustice of the judicial system by taking a knee during the anthem are the SAME ones who are all "I have to have my guns! It's my right".

I don't think they even see how these two thoughts in the same head show hypocrisy and quite a bit of selfishness. Everyone has forgotten that we are all made of the same stuff and came from the same place. Things get out of whack when a person either values themselves too much (like trump does) or not enough and then when they don't care about themselves they can't care about others.

I think there is a major lack of critical thinking skills in this country. Along with not a good understanding of the Constitution or a good study of history.

Has anyone else noticed this? I guess this question is directed to those who have facebook and still follow people who they don't agree with.

I imagine there are an extraordinary amount of people coming to/already here

from all over the world to experience the eclipse.

Is there any change the protestors can keep tRump in his tower while they are here? Kind of like that old dog that has to be put in the back room when company comes.

Where will you be????

*********
I am lucky enough to be in the path of totality! SW of St. Louis. I told my family members up in Madison, WI as soon as I learned of this event. They are all coming down to experience this amazing phenomenon!!!



I am posting this tonight because i am getting so depressed over all of what has happened since November. They can't take this away or fuck it up!!!!!! (I don't think!!!)

I am looking forward to hearing from other DUers. Those in the path and if anyone will be making special travel to be in the best spots.

I Almost agree with Melania here:

https://thinkprogress.org/melania-trump-hospital-c221842d9096#.4iysnq7fi

from the article:
Melania Trump talked with patients and their families about “how the gift of nature and the beauties of the outdoors can contribute to the healing process,” according to the hospital.(snip)

I do know the healing benefits of nature. Our local hospital, built within the last 10 years, took this into consideration when building and the entire back part of the hospital faces natural space for the patients to enjoy while there. The morning I left there after my gallbladder surgery I watched a deer from my hospital window.

And I do know the healing powers of the cannabis plant. I have also seen many moving stories of how it has helped children with seizure disorders. That is straight from nature.

BUT...

The best thing we can do for the health of children now and in the future is to ensure that they have clean water, a food supply free of the overuse of pesticides and that the air they breathe has the lowest levels of pollution. The choice of her husband for the head of the EPA does not seem to feel any of that is necessary.

So, while i think it is nice of Melania to take her time and visit this children's hospital, I hope she can see and understand what her husbands policies are setting up for the children now and in the future.

Well, well, well I learned something new about Sean Spicers wife today!

https://www.medicalmarijuana.com/conflict-of-interest-much-sean-spicers-wife-has-huge-ties-to-the-beer-industry/



snip:
Donald Trump’s choice for his mouthpiece as White House press secretary and communications director was the hot-headed Sean Spicer, who ruffled just a few feathers last week when he said Americans will see “greater enforcement” of federal law on recreational marijuana.

Spicer’s choice for marriage in 2004 was the booze-lauding Rebecca Spicer. Rebecca Spicer has been the senior vice president of communications & public affairs for the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) since 2007. The NBWA “represents the interests of America’s 3,300 licensed, independent beer distributors.” snip:


No wonder he was so happy to boast about how the new administration wants to step back up to cracking down on weed. Can't have people using a plant that has killed NO ONE! Even though we are well aware of the health effects of beer.

I am not a beer drinker myself, but I have no problem with folks drinking it (as long as they don't do things like drive while drinking!). I have used cannabis for many years for many reasons, but I don't think we should stop the sale of alcohol.

I thought this was a capitalistic society where everyone could buy and sell freely. This is just stupid. When I worked at the local day care and our enrollment was down, we didn't burn down the other day cares in the neighborhood to get their kids to come to ours.

There are sooooo many conflicts of interest with this administration. I don't think anyone is there for just "We, the people" anymore.
