MORNIN’ Everyone~! Have a BLESSED DAY.

Mornin’ Mr. Radio
Mornin’ little Cheerios
Mornin’ sister Oriole
Did I tell you everything is fine
In my mind

Mornin’ Mr. Shoe Shine Man
Shine ’em bright in white and tan
My baby said she loves me and
Need I tell you that
Everything here is just fine
In my mind

‘Scuse me if I sing
My heart has found its wings
Searchin’ high and low
And now at last I know

Mornin’ Mr. Golden Gate
I should walk but I can’t wait
I can’t wait to set it straight
I was shakin’ but now I am
Makin’ it fine
Here in my mind

My heart will soar
With love that’s rare and real
My smiling face will feel every cloud
Then higher still
Beyond the blue until
I know I can
Like any man
Reach out my hand
And touch the face of GOD

‘Scuse me if I sing
My heart has found its wings
Searchin’ high and low
And now at last I know

Mornin’ Mr. Radio
Mornin’ little Cheerios
Mornin’ sister Oriole
Did I tell you everything is fine
Wooo in my mind

So, won’t you get up Oriole
So, won’t you get up Cheerios
Wake up Mr. Radio
It’s fine
Here in my mind

Singin’ about mornin’ little radio
Mornin’ little Cheerios
Wake up Mr. Radio
Need I tell you everything
Right here is just doing fine

    A Letter to Mr. Medford of South Carolina

    From the Judgmental Left
    by Martin Longman
    February 19, 2017
    1:55 PM

    Dear Mr. Medford,

    I read about your opinions in an article in the February 18th New York Times Sunday Review. It seemed like you wanted progressives to understand and respect your point of view, which is understandable, but I think the reverse is true, too. We would like you to better understand and respect our value system.

    ………………………………………….

    I think we all, as parents, try to teach our children some of the
    same basic things about how to treat other people. It’s hard to find a
    single one of those lessons that Donald Trump doesn’t violate on a
    regular basis. Whether it’s being honest and respectful, or it’s
    admitting your mistakes, or it’s having some humility, or it’s being
    good on your word, or it’s how to treat women, or it’s judging people by
    the content of their character, Trump sets a bad example in every case.

    These things are hard to overlook precisely because there are no known and accepted moral defenses for them.

    Since you’re a self-described conservative, we don’t doubt that there
    are things about progressives and the Democratic Party that you find
    not just unwise but morally incorrect. In our minds, these must be some
    very powerful things to overcome the deficits in character that are so
    easily observable in Donald Trump.

    ……………………………

    You are being morally judged for this decision. We believe that you
    will come to learn that you made a mistake, but what we’re really
    interested in is making sure you understand where we’re coming from.

    We don’t think it is okay that Donald Trump is the president of the
    United States. We think this should have been obvious when it came time
    to vote. And we think that it tells us something about the morals of
    people that they would overlook his Birtherism and his race-baiting and
    his characteristics that we discourage in our own children and his
    treatment of women, and still support him because they have other
    priorities that are more important to them.

    Kremlin Shadow
    How Putin Played the Far Left
    The Kremlin didn’t just rely on the alt-right to help Trump win. Bernie Bros, Greens, and ‘anti-imperialists’ got had, too.
    Casey Michel
    01.13.17 12:15 AM ET

    In the aftermath of the U.S. intelligence community’s recent report on the Russian-directed hacking of the Democratic National Committee, it’s easy but misleading to conclude that the Russian government’s propaganda strategy lies solely in advancing the careers of conservative Republicans in the United States. Backing Donald Trump’s candidacy, via steady leaks of stolen communiques to organizations like WikiLeaks, was but one prong of the Kremlin’s assault on American liberal democracy. Part of its campaign to vilify Hillary Clinton involved catering to her rivals on the far-left and pushing any number of crankish conspiracy theories that appeal as much to “anti-imperialists” as to neo-Nazis.

    There’s nothing new in that, really.

    Moscow’s attempts to cultivate America’s far-left long predate the presidency of Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin, according to available evidence, donated more funds per capita to the U.S. Communist Party than any other communist claque during the Soviet period, when Moscow’s intelligence operations against the “main adversary” involved recruiting agents of influence and spies of a progressive background who were sympathetic to the Soviet cause. But the past 18 months have seen a noted spike in information warfare aimed at gulling the Bernie Bros and Occupy-besotted alternative-media set, which saw Clinton as more of a political danger than it did Trump.

    Perhaps the starkest case in point is Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and her constituency. In December 2015, the Kremlin feted Stein by inviting her to the gala celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Kremlin-funded propaganda network RT. Over a year later, it remains unclear who paid for Stein’s trip to Moscow and her accommodations there. Her campaign ignored multiple questions on this score. We do know, however, that Stein sat at the same table as both Putin and Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Trump’s soon-to-be national security adviser. She further spoke at an RT-sponsored panel, using her presence to criticize the U.S.’s “disastrous militarism.” Afterward, straddling Moscow’s Red Square, Stein described the panel as “inspiring,” going on to claim that Putin, whom she painted as a political novice, told her he “agree[d]” with her “on many issues.”

    Stephen Miller called Brooklyn U.S. Attorney at home and told him how to defend travel ban in court

    In the chaotic hours after President Trump signed on a Friday afternoon the sloppily written executive order meant to fulfill his Muslim ban campaign promise, Stephen Miller called the home of Robert Capers to dictate to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District how he should defend that order at a Saturday emergency federal court hearing.

    That’s according to a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the call, which happened as Department of Justice attorneys cancelled plans, found babysitters and rushed back to their Brooklyn office to try and find out what exactly it was they were defending and who was being affected by it — how many people were already being held in America, how many were being barred from arriving here and the exact status of each person.

    Y’know, the information a competent administration would have been prepared to collect before implementing the order.

    The Eastern District declined to comment on any contact between Capers and Miller, the 31-year-old former Jeff Sessions aide and America First true believer with no legal background of his own, who a few months ago was warming up Trump’s campaign crowds and is now writing executive orders for the President

    African-American financial gurus to follow
    Amrita Jayakumar, NerdWallet 1:03 p.m. ET Feb. 9, 2017

    Talking about money can be hard, but not if you’re a financial guru with thousands of loyal fans who walk your money talk. In honor of Black History Month, we asked some personal finance experts to share their experiences and financial lessons, and to reflect on the significance race has on their financial lives and the advice they give their followers.

    Good Morning Everyone!
    Thanks for posting such a wonderful song, Ametia.

    I love these lyrics:

    My heart will soar
    With love that’s rare and real
    My smiling face will feel every cloud
    Then higher still
    Beyond the blue until
    I know I can
