IOTD …. Image of the Day …. Special Edition …. “Nevertheless, she persisted …. “!!

He may have gotten what he wanted

Mitch McConnell got everything he wanted
“It’s a win: He appeased the GOP base by attacking a woman, and the odious Jeff Sessions is now our attorney general.”




On Tuesday, February 7, night Mitch McConnell stood up in the Senate and within the space of a minute or so managed to enrage Democrats, women, civil rights activists, the ghost of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, you name it.

By invoking the rarely used Rule 19 of the Senate to stop Sen. Elizabeth Warren from reading into the official record a letter penned by the late Coretta Scott King in 1986, in opposition to a judicial nomination of Jeff Sessions, McConnell created an immediate firestorm and gave the left a new martyr.

The general consensus of writers and political observers was that the normally careful McConnell had made a rare misstep. Not only did he silence a popular liberal firebrand, but in a way he also silenced the widow of civil rights hero Martin Luther King Jr.

With Warren facing surprisingly low approval ratings in Massachusetts, he may have just given her 2018 re-election and a possible presidential run in 2020 a high-profile boost.

He may have even coined a slogan for both campaigns:

“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

At the end of the day …. “Glory”!!


~~January 20, 2015~~ 

Common says ‘Selma’ song ‘Glory’ is intended to inspire, unite

Rapper and actor Common says he and singer-songwriter John Legend were so inspired by the story at the center of Selma they had no trouble writing “Glory,” their anthem for freedom and justice.The memorable music from the current Best Picture Oscar nominee has already earned the recording artists Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice awards for Best Original Song. It also is nominated for an Oscar in the same category.

Asked by UPI in New York last month before the Martin Luther King Jr. bio-picture opened in theaters how he and Legend came to collaborate on the song, Common replied: “I’m ingrained in this. This is who I am, speaking up for socially conscious things. And being able to be an actor in the film really gave me a lot of what to write about and I knew the history.


“So, I called John and I told him everything that was going on with Selma. He hadn’t seen the film yet, obviously. I hadn’t seen the film yet. We just had a quick discussion and I gave him three titles that I thought we should use and one of them was ‘Glory‘ and he wrote a piano piece and then wrote a chorus for ‘Glory‘ and when I got the music back I was like, ‘Oh, man, this is touching me.’ So, it didn’t take a long time to write. This is what I love to do. Write music that inspires people and brings people together and motivates people, so I just wrote from my heart  … It’s in my soul. I told them I could write this song forever.”

“As it appears in …. “
