Did anyone catch Hillary at the National Urban League Conference?

I saw some of it on MSNBC this morning and she gave an impassioned speech on the full spectrum of racial issues. They are repeating parts of it through the morning. Apparently, Bernie was there as well but they didn't play any video. It was reported, by Joy Reid, that he gave his usual talk on income inequality but did say that black lives matter.

p.s. I just watched Jeb Bush take credit for the "economic boom" in Florida that was the result of the housing bubble during his reign as governor and false kingmaker. He neglected to mention that the minute he left office, the bubble burst and Florida's recession ended up being twice as bad as the rest of the country!

The New York Times, liars or just stupid?????

This is a question I have been asking myself all week. Are the folks over at the Gray Lady really incompetent or do they think we are so stupid that they can lie to everyone time and again and no one will notice?

Funnily enough, this is the same question I have been asking myself for years whenever someone spews moronic republican talking points at me. "Do they really believe this shit or do they think I'm too uninformed to realize this is just a bunch of garbage?"

Maybe it's a combination of both. I really can't tell but how can I make them stop it!

Last night I went to a fantastic "Christmas in July" backyard party given by...

one of my neighbors. She is an accountant who's family comes from Puerto Rico and the food was incredible, roast pulled pork, black beans and rice and even eggnog ice cream with dolce de leche cake! Christmas lights and snowmen and reindeer!

Her friends from work, church, her family and many neighbors attended. It was an incredibly diverse evening, folks from Cuba, England, Germany, Eqypt, Mexico, Spain, South Africa, California, Texas, New York, New Jersey and many more. All ages and several religions including me, the Atheist.

Many brought guitars and drums and the music was terrific.

The best part of the evening was that every person there (as far as I could tell and I talk to everybody) was a Hillary supporter! It was so pleasant to be in a great big happy group of people who not only loved Hillary and were active in supporting her but they really hated Republicans! Even the Cuban business owner (I thought he would be a hold out). Many were teachers and no one is more anti republican in NJ after Christie slammed and smeared them and then defunded the schools.

Politics was the popular subject of the evening. I have never talked politics at a party and everyone agreed with me! No one even mentioned Bernie Sanders name once. It was like he didn't exist. I have to get out more!

I love this photo of Hillary.....

I'm going to use it as my signature this week in honor of her remarkable life. She has met nearly every world, business and religious leader. It's obvious from this photo that this meeting with Mandela was one of her happiest and most memorable!
