    • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

    • Alma98

      I switched to the whitehouse.gov link it works better.

  • sagittarius

    I love that Janelle is honoring Shirley Bassey in addition to Aretha and Patti! She is one of the few young singers who has the chops to pull her songs off!

    • Alma98

  • sagittarius

    OK… this is gonna be interesting. I’m gonna hold my breath through Melissa’s rendition…

      • Alma98

        I have it on mute I couldn’t take it. lol

        • goldenstar

          It wasn’t bad.

    • sagittarius

      I know, right?!

    • Alma98

      I know she’s been touring lately, but I don’t know if she’s still on tour.

  • Alma98

    Girlfriend can sang!

    • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

      Tessanne can sang. She’s a reggae artist.

      • Alma98

        She looks like my daughter & Queen Latifa.

    • goldenstar

      YASS.

  • goldenstar

    The Obamas are holding hands.

  • Alma98

    Donna!

  • sagittarius

    Glad Donna is getting her props. She really wasn’t celebrated as she should have been because of disco — the music of blacks, Hispanics, gays and the dispossessed.

    • Alma98

      She had a powerful voice, I miss her.

      • sagittarius

        Yep… she’s another gone too soon…

    I’d rather Jill play Aretha than Halle.

  • GreenLadyHere
  • sagittarius

    Lawd, my niece and nephew hopped up from the dinner table on Rock Steady. The youngest (2 years old) has the cutest dance, which I call the ‘one-legged Deacon Stomp’!

    • Alma98

    • Alma98

      oooh yes!

    • sagittarius

      I agree… I don’t know if she has or feels like having a partner sing with her

      • crazycanuck

        I think she is already performing by herself, but I know it’s gotta be tough.

      Yep… this should be edited from the broadcast.

  • sagittarius

    She’s a little out of place… this is grown women’s music. She hasn’t lived enough to sing soul music. I blame whomever programmed the artists, this is not a good choice.

      • Alma98

        I think somebody asked for a favor or two.

    • JojoRaze

      They always let younger people on these things at the WH, even if they are out of place. It’s a humbling exercise if any thing, to the young artist that they still have to pay dues and learn from the greats.

      • sagittarius

        I hear you… but some things are not for all ages. Janelle Monae serves that demo group.

          • itgurl_29

            The other day, Wendy went in on the kid because he was in the Oscar selfie. It was ridiculous and mean. She hates Lupita but can’t express because she knows she’ll get dragged. So she takes her anger out on the little brother. Meanwhile, he’s a special guest at Oprah’s house while she’s sitting on her lame show talking smack about him.

      sepia♥ – - -seems as iff there was an UPDATE:- – - WHICH converted it into a –FAUX-pology — -IMHO –
      – - – -☺Updated: 10:34 p.m. | In an interview with his localnewspaper, Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa said he has apologized to Rep. Elijah E. Cummings for cutting off his microphone at a Wednesday hearing — although in a separate interview he told Fox News that Cummings had a “hissy fit” and “broke the decorum of the House.” – -

      “Mr. Cummings is a member of Congress who works very hard for his constituents,” Issa told U-T San Diego after the House voted 211-186 on party lines to shelve a resolution offered by Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge to condemn Issa’s actions. Fudge also wrote to Speaker John A. Boehner asking the Ohio Republican to strip Issa of his gavel over his treatment of Cummings, D-Md.

      Boehner had backed Issa and said he was within his rights to adjourn the hearing.

      Whatever you do, please do not look at the comments on some movie sites….a good chunk of them are, in my opinion, full of racist crap.
      I swear, some of the most close-minded people I’ve seen online are these “film geeks”.

    Speaking of the DOJ, they busted some guy in the Nashville area
    who was stealing donation checks out of the mailboxes of churches,
    then among other things wired some of it to an account in Cyprus.
    Our city, I’m proud to say, helped. The county sheriff’s office, run by tea party dumbasses didn’t help. Ha!

    — – - – -President Obama held an hour-long phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin Thursday afternoon to discuss the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

    –Obama emphasized to Putin that Russia’s military incursion into Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula violated the country’s sovereignty, “which has led us to take several steps in response, in coordination with our European partners,” Obama said in a White House statement.

    Obama also outlined a diplomatic solution to the ongoing unrest, which would include direct talks between the Ukraine and Russia governments, ensuring Russian forces return to their bases and installing international monitors to protect the rights of all Ukrainians.

    “There is a way to resolve the situation diplomatically, which addresses the interests of Russia, the people of Ukraine, and the international community,” the White House said.

          I just heard a snippet of PBO’s statement on LOD, GreenLady. “In the year 2014 we are well beyond the time where leaders rewrite/rework borders over the heads of a legitimate democratic government.” Hmm.

          Harkening back to the centuries of empires
          and conquerors just divided and cobbling together territories with no thought to people – their culture, history, economic system, kinship — just nothing. Iraq was such a clear case of this. The GOP can’t conceive of the world through anything but an imperial lens through which to trade without impunity.

          I’m also thinking that PBO’s looking at the coup folks in Ukraine, too. Hey, guys, elections, not coups, are the way to go.

    – - – -BLAME EVERYTHING ON RONALD REAGAN-
    — -As long as the GOP and their media shills continue to blame
    every problem and their own wrongdoings on Bill Clinton, we will fight back. – — –SNIP- – with our own campaign to “blame everything on Ronald Reagan”. Not only will it be truthful [even if we stretch the truth
    as much as they do] but it will also counter all of the false positive spin and adulation Reagan has received all these years by people who aren’t interested in acknowledging or understanding all the damage his presidency did to our country.
    We are asking our viewers for help in adding to this list by utilizing your creative spirits, historical knowledge, energy, and funny bones. We have started this list to help you get a feel for the types of ideas we might be looking for.

    Feel free to email notice of this campaign to all of your friends.
    This project will become very informative if everyone pitches in to help! Who knows? We might even be able to change the political discourse in a major way in this country.
    Send us something we can blame on Reagan
    We blame Ronald Reagan for these things:

    Had it not been for Reagan busting the air traffic controllers
    union, 9/11 might not have succeeded because former union air traffic controllers would have been better able to spot and isolate the hijacked planes from the others on their screen so they could have been intercepted BEFORE they hit their targets.

    Nuclear weapon proliferation and escalation with the Soviet Union wouldn’t have continued as long had it not been for Reagan’s insistence on the missile shield ie Star Wars program.

    Contributed to a vast expansion of corporate theft and illegal behavior
    by disabling governmental functions and regulatory agencies that would have prevented these things.

    Contributed to a general distrust and dislike of government by devaluing civic participation thus discouraging good people from participating in public service.

    Allowed the EPA to unravel laws that protect the environment.
    If you are breathing bad air and/or drinking contaminated water, it’s Reagan’s fault. So is the increase in global warming.

    Started the trend where reporters are afraid to question or
    contradict the president for fear of losing access.

    One reason Osama bin Laden felt emboldened enough to attack
    us on 9/11 was because Reagan didn’t do anything when the Marine barracks in Lebanon were bombed in 1983 by suicide bombers killing 241 US servicemen. There was no serious retaliation for the Beirut bombing from the Americans. Instead, the Marines were moved offshore where they could not be targeted. On February 7, 1984,
    President Reagan ordered the Marines to begin withdrawal from Lebanon.
