At thanksgiving our family had terrible shouting matches over politics. I just left the room and decided to go for a walk. It was bad - I think everyone made good, but there was a dark cloud over that family get together and it may never be the same again.
Do you have any stories?
"I think it was a satisfying feeling. That was mixed with all the work that was still undone. Concerns about how the country moves forward but, you know, overall there was serenity there. More than I would have expected," Obama said.
I have to be honest I felt sheer horror. lol. Glad he is enjoying his post presidency time.
Steven Whitt fires up the coffee pot and flips on the fluorescent sign in the window of the Frosty Freeze, his diner that looks and sounds and smells about the same as it did when it opened a half-century ago. Coffee is 50 cents a cup, refills 25 cents. The pot sits on the counter, and payment is based on the honor system.
People like it that way, he thinks. It reminds them of a time before the world seemed to stray away from them, when coal was king and the values of the nation seemed the same as the values here, in Gods Country, in this small county isolated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Must have been a rePuke appointee.
Just now, President Trump touted the tax plan as an Obamacare repeal.
"When the individual mandate is being repealed, that means Obamacare is being repealed because they get their money from the individual mandate," Trump said. "So in this bill, not only do we have massive tax cuts and tax reform, we have essentially repealed Obamacare."
He added: "Obamacare has been repealed in this bill."
Its a dark day.
I guess they can't get anything right. Any chance the result is different?
They went over the 217 needed to pass it.
I sure hope the swift end is a list of impeachable offenses that can end this nightmare very quickly.
