    A white teen created a cartoon explaining institutional racism. Unfortunately, it stepped on too many toes. As a result of bullying and death threats, she took down her blog; however, several websites continue to share her message. You can see the cartoon at the tweet link.

    I also thought the abrupt resignation today of Fl. Rep. Trey Radel was interesting/suspicious. His cocaine bust has been known for some time, he’s been to rehab and back in session—–and swore he would never resign. CREW’s Melanie Sloan suspects the resignation was to halt any further investigation, which was in the works, which may have involved other members of Congress or staff.

            Pissed off because they were scared of this Bully.
            Evidently, they did not take notes on FLOTUS speech about being tired of “fear”.
            Repugs, I get it. But chicken shit Dems is too much.

              He seems to speak on all the wrong things. If he was head down learning about the Senate and his role therein (as per Al Franken) and spoke only about Senate issues that are important to his state – that would be good. If he went to the senate to play superman – NJ has lost a voice. Maybe he just has lousy advisers? Recommended by the Governor?

                All of the above. He think he wants to be like Barack Obama or better.
                Personally ,I think he is an undercover republican/independant/ liberertarian/ asshole/ fool.
                His agenda is his own. He tries too hard to save things. JUST DO IT!
                Do we have to know about every damn thing you save?
                POB does things daily without all the fanfare. It just comes naturally.

                  “POB does things daily without all the fanfare. It just comes naturally.”

                  Truth – every media complaint just highlights it more and more.

                  Booker is such a disappointment – he has been given an amazing opportunity and has no idea where to take it.

        I have always kept apples on the table for years for all seasons.
        Great snack when all the ice cream is finished. Also, my craving for chocolate.

          Friend with 4 children – always knew when they were really hungry. She bought apples by the case and when anyone said “I’m hungry” it was an apple or an apple :)

      Ha! I wondered, too. Although I can’t believe the basket isn’t replenished throughout the day, so maybe there are three times the # of apples pictured that are being devoured! #ILikeToThink

    • January 27, 2014 at 8:57 pm

      I’ve seen photos of it not quite full as well as photos of people eating them.
      I’m glad to see this because I’m addicted to apples! I keep a big bowl on my kitchen table, too.

    I am so tired of people trying to separate congressional GOPers from sane and insane. I see one GOP, I see all GOP. They all have voted in lock step to obstruct PBO. None better than the other.

    Suspected Islamist militants have attacked two villages in north-eastern Nigeria, leaving 74 people dead, say police and witnesses.

    Militants attacked Kawuri village in Borno state as a busy market was packing up on Sunday, setting off explosives and setting houses ablaze.

    Witnesses said 52 people were killed in that attack, while 22 died in an attack on a church service in Waga Chakawa village, Adamawa state, on Sunday.

    The attacks were blamed on Boko Haram.

    anniebella,

    Saw your question on the previous thread about Joy Reid on MSNBC at 2 pm Eastern time (hers will be a morning show on the west coast).

    Interestingly, today MSNBC also announced Ronan Farrow at 1 pm, but for whatever reason, only 1 of 2 media journalists I follow even mentioned this development.

    Had it been about a fellow WHITE MALE journalist (i.e., Ezra Klein) the media journalists would have been tweeting away. I guess Ronan Farrow is old news by now.

    Some in TODville expressed concern about Joy Reid bashing the President in her new gig. I’m on BobFRs side, which is that Joy is one the sharpest pundits who really can weigh all sides of an argument without leaping to bash our President.

    Not true for the MSM (DC echo-chamber media, whether print, radio, video or digital). More thoughts on this below.

    Just galls me that Joy is not getting the recognition she deserves, since she is head and shoulders above Hayes and Wagner (who both act like they’re in the second grade).

    I’m still grappling with the enormity of the GOP FAIL, and the expense at which US broadcast & cable are incurring to transmit that enormity – to the widest possible audience of Americans (and, the world) – that this represents ….

    Never thought I’d say thank you to these broadcast/cable conglomerates and this is likely the only time I ever will … but, Thank you.

    Two very important tips for Rand Paul:

    1. Shower
    2. Comb the tangled hair

    I’ll present more tips, tomorrow (like get rid of the “White America” t-shirts), but I’m throwing up a little in my mouth now, having seen his image two seconds too long.

    • 82 hopefruit2

      Yes, and this time about a whole lotta NOTHING. Their latest vapid gripe is that at PBO doesn’t have enough “diversity” in his judge nominees. Now think about this for a sec. PBO has nominated more AA, Asian, Hisp, LGBT and female nominees than any other before him. But right before the SOTU address, this is what the CBC is complaining about. Meanwhile the GOP is obstructing on just about every issue of concern to people of color – jobs, immigration reform, gun control, unemployment extension, education reform, etc.

      January 27, 2014 at 10:05 pm

      And the GOP ratbags are attacking Wendy Davis for a minor age error in her biography. That is some read df

      Reality is the democrats NEVER use the spite and lies that is the bread and butter of the GOP – and this is just disgusting

      “During the fundamentalist education and grooming of Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the Republicans never noticed or did not care that Cathy was ‘dumb as a bag of rocks’, because their ideal woman is obedient and cannot think for herself.”

        That’s how they all are! Subservient is what they do. Keep this in mind as you watch her….my TV will click off right after the SOTU, but I’m certain that we’ll see Ms. McMorris Rodgers at some point….she’s usually positioned BEHIND the men, not BESIDE them.

    • 124 99ts
      January 27, 2014 at 10:16 pm

      I would think it most likely ever since the military has been involved in wars which have been based on lies and are political and military disasters. Bush & Co would never have queried anything they did – and only in the time of PBO would the media think it should be discussed.

      Thus said, Pres Obama was partly elected on the policy of ending the wars – the military did not agree with how/when this should be done.

            Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post.
