    Wondering if anyone else has seen this? A friend of mine on Facebook got a private message (from another friend who is liberal). This is what the message said:

    Let’s send the Obama’s out in solidariity on Friday, January 20, 2016 by changing all profile pics to pictures of the Best First Family, Ever. We need everyone to participate for maximum impact. In order for this to work you must change the profile pic on EVERY social media network. Pass along THROUGH INBOXES ONLY and participate! #THANKSOBAMA.

    I’m not sure why the covert operation? 🤓 And yes, it said Jan 20, 2016!! Don’t we wish!

      I love the fact that they spell “messenger” wrong in their first line (they spelled it “messanger”). Shows just how ignorant they really are.

        👀 oops- that’s on me! I was typing on my phone (having to hold down caps lock arrow)- and thinking my thumb won out and the “A” recorded and not the “E”! I don’t believe that takes away from the truth of your comment and the ignorance issue, however!

      That will make it easier for me to recognize in the office who to avoid when I pass out some of the 36 (6 sets of 6) Inauguration commemorative pins I just ordered from the Trump site. I’d hate to waste any on the undeserving. Thanks, Obama. Buh bye.

    I saw this article while perusing the Judicial Watch website and thought it might be something of interest, and to add prayers toward averting. It’s found within the attached by scrolling down the article until reaching this headline “Shootout at U.S. Consulate Part of Terrorist Attack Plan for Inauguration.” Has anyone else heard anything about this?

    If anybody gets a chance and didn’t hear it, Rush Limbaugh (who is at times brilliant, at times dull) had a great conversation 1-11-17 on his show just after Trump’s press conference.

    He was explaining how the Libs are going after this Russia thing so hard, not just to discredit Trump, but to make sense in their own minds why he won. They can’t bring themselves to think that he actually WON, so they have to believe that Russia helped. To the rest of us they look like morons, but Rush believes that they actually BELIEVE that Russia rigged the election. Not just to save public face, but because their minds can’t fathom that he just simply beat them.

      LOL. Actually, I’d believe that. They really are that clueless.


    • Alexsandra says:

      For being such a snarky repository of muddy waters pre-election that I could not bear to listen to him, thankfully post-election Rush has jumped full-booted onto the Trump train and has been doing a great service. Much more wisdom now he’s pro-Trump!

    Anyone watching Lou Dobbs. Great tonight, especially guest who advised Trump to state anyone on UN Security Council voting against Israel this weekend at special meeting in France will pay when he takes office. HURRAH!

    I can see Trump doing that…I hope he does.

      Lou does that a lot. He even looks like he’s cringing when he says his name. He’s been on Ryan’s case for months. It never gets old when he slams Ryan. 🙂

    His obsession was so out of touch that the Supreme Court, divided as it is, issued a unanimous ruling telling Obama he must find another way. When Ruth Bader Ginsburg joins hands with Clarence Thomas to rebuke your fixation with forcing nuns to violate their conscience, you have reached the pinnacle of ideological extremism.


    The LEGACY of a mad-man.

    Best statement I have read that succinctly exposes the truth of the UNAFFORDABLE Care Act:

    Obamacare may have made insurance affordable for a few low income people, but Obamacare has done nothing but force the taxpayers and the America workers and employers to pay healthcare premiums for others. Democrats destroyed the best healthcare system in the world in the process of forcing working class Americans to subsidize insurance for the poor.

    Unfortunately, many of the working class make too much to receive a subsidy and too little to afford the massive increases we have seen – caused by Obamacare. So the idle poor enjoy free or nearly free healthcare at the expense of many who were struggling without government assistance just to pay for a roof and food.

    And the ultimate fate of Obamacare, if left in place, will be to make healthcare unaffordable for everyone. Even the subsidized class who are even now finding out that low premiums are great, but the high deductibles make the insurance worthless.

    Well stated:

    It is very clear; this election was a revolt of Middle America, three quarters of whom thought that the country was on the wrong track, which correlates to President-elects victory in 30 of 50 states, and winning in 2,623 counties to Mrs. Clinton’s 489 counties nationally.

    It was a vote against the Obama agenda, a vote against political correctness, and a vote against the ruling class. The pervasive stupidity of our modern times has finally tripped the circuit breakers of tolerance.

  23. I am almost 75 years old and I have never seen anything happen like the things going on now. Most (99%) of all government is disgusting. Each day there are new revelations coming out and I think how can it get any worse. Guess what, it surely does.

    *****Attention all Election Thread posters……this is O/T; but I am doing this for a fellow treeper.
    karensundstrom’s husband has passed away. (We’ve been asking on the Open thread for a day or two) And she reached out tonight, while I was over there.

    She is exhausted and grieving, and reaching out to here e-family. Some of you may have had more comments with her than others; but every one should know. She is a Treeper, and our family.

    I have directed her over to the Prayer thread for now, (the flickering candle , upper right top, click on it) and whether or not she comments, she will be reading there. It’s times like these when we also come together.

    karensundstrom, we love you, and we wrap our arms around you during these times, and know, we are here, here for you, let us comfort you in any way we can. Amen.
