    Photos: Obama bids his presidency farewell in Chicago

    President Barack Obama returned to Chicago, his adopted hometown, Tuesday night to deliver a farewell address marking the end of his eight years in office. Thousands attended the speech at McCormick Place, where Obama paid tribute to his administration’s accomplishments, his family and staff. Recalling at first his early days as an organizer in Chicago, the president delivered an optimistic message urging national unity and political participation, but also warned of various threats to American democracy, including income inequality, racism and toxic politics.

    Looking back to his historic election as the nation’s first African American president, Obama said, “After my election there was talk of a post-racial America. And such a vision, however well intended, was never realistic. Race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society. Now I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were 10 or 20 or 30 years ago, no matter what some folks say. … But we’re not where we need to be. And all of us have more work to do.”

    See photos of the evening and interviews with attendees by photographer Max Herman.

    So there is some strategy to put the Rethugs on front street, let’s see where it goes – they need to have a stronger presence on all social media since mainstream media will not be nearly enough.

    Democrats Force Tough Votes on Obamacare “vote-a-rama”
    January 11, 2017

    Senate Democrats prepared Wednesday to make a late-night show of resistance against gutting the Affordable Care Act by forcing Republicans to take politically charged votes against protecting Medicare, Medicaid and other health-care programs.

    The mostly symbolic votes come amid growing concerns among congressional Republicans that the party is rushing to dismantle the ACA without a plan to replace it. Democrats planned to force the frenzied vote series called a “vote-a-rama” well into Thursday morning, even as they cannot prevent the GOP from following through on their repeal plans.

    – – –Vernon Ferdinand Dahmer, Sr. (March 10, 1908 – January 10, 1966) was a leader with the Civil Rights Movement and president of the Forrest County chapter of the NAACP in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

    His MOTTO:- – -“If You Don’t VOTE- – -You Don’t COUNT”.

    On January 10, 1966 the Dahmer home was attacked by the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
    The family woke to the sound of a shotgun being discharged and the
    sound of gas jugs being thrown through the windows. As Ellie went to
    grab the children, the house erupted into fire. Dahmer returned fire
    from inside the house to try and distract the Klansmen while he helped
    hand Betty down to Ellie. He was able to leave his burning home but was severely burned from the waist up; Betty also had severe burns on her arms. The Dahmers’ home, grocery store, and car were all destroyed in the fire. He was taken to the hospital and died due to his lungs being severely burned and smoke inhalation.
    Before he died, Dahmer had told a local newspaper reporter: “I’ve been active in trying to get people to register to vote. People who don’t
    vote are deadbeats on the state. I figure a man needs to do his own
    thinking. What happened to us last night can happen to anyone, white or
    black. At one time I didn’t think so, but I have changed my mind.”

    – –Mary Jane Blige (/ˈblaɪʒ/; born January 11, 1971) is an American singer, songwriter, model, record producer and actress. -Starting her career as a background singer on Uptown Records in 1989, Blige released her first album, What’s the 411?, in 1992, and has released 12 studio albums since and made over 150 guest appearances on other albums and soundtracks.

    A recipient of nine Grammy Awards, in addition to receiving a record of thirty Grammy nominations, and also known as the Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Blige is one of few entertainers in history to have eight or more albums to reach multi-platinum status. My Life, in particular, is considered among the greatest albums ever recorded according to Rolling Stone,[1] Time,[2] and Vibe. For her part in combining hip hop and soul in the early 1990s and its subsequent commercial success, Blige received the Legends Award at the World Music Awards. Blige also received the Voice of Music Award from performance rights organization ASCAP, with its official Jeanie Weems stating that “[Blige’s] music has been the voice of inspiration to women worldwide in both struggle and
    triumph.” Blige made Time magazine’s “Time 100” list of influential individuals around the world in 2007.

    As of 2013, Blige has sold more than 50 million albums and 25 million singles worldwide. Billboard ranked Blige as the most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years. The magazine also lists her 2006 song “Be Without You” as the top R&B song of the 2000s, as it spent an unparalleled 15 weeks atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. In 2011, VH1 ranked Blige as the 80th greatest artist of all time. Moreover, she is ranked number 100 on the list of “100 greatest singers of all time” by Rolling Stone magazine.[9] In 2012, VH1 ranked Blige at number 9 in “The 100 Greatest Women in Music.”
    Blige also earned high remarks for her work in film. She starred in the 2009 Tyler Perry box-office hit I Can Do Bad All By Myself and played a role in the film Rock of Ages (2012). She received a Golden Globe Award nomination for her musical contribution to the film The Help. In partnership with the Home Shopping Network (HSN) and Carol’s Daughter, Blige released her “My Life” perfume. The perfume broke HSN records by selling 65,000 bottles during its premiere.[11] The scent went on to win two FiFi Awards, including the “Fragrance Sales Breakthrough” award.
