      I don’t get why the media persists in writing about the Idiot President like he’s normal. It may sound good to state he was ‘conflicted until the end’, but they ought to know by now that the idiot blunders through without any thought at all so there’s no conflict involved. Grrr.

      Huge turnout for 3 rallies to defend DACA in Portland, despite raining ash from the horrible wildfires in the Columbia Gorge.

          Yes it is, Carolyn, when you consider that all his decisions to date have been so lacking in ….. everything rational! In truth I didn’t backtrack to the source of the article because I can’t believe any credible writer/journalist would describe the IP thus at this point in time.

    If i see ONE more post about DT being “conflicted” about this decision–as if he is an empathetic human being–i will start screaming. The man does not care one iota about these kids. The ONLY thing that matters to him are polls and ratings, and undoing every single thing that President Obama did in taking this country forward. He is a hateful, spiteful man filled with rage.

      Describes him to a T – he could not even read the statement – so got someone else to do it – so much b. shit about how and why – he is racist to the core as are most of his appointees. The fear and horror he is making people suffer is unbelievable – then again him getting elected is still unbelievable to sane people.

    Last Xmas, We ordered Pride & Prejudice off from Amazon. Until Today, we have never gotten it. We are still fighting for the credit. In Jan of this yr, we ordered another copy. It came w/o a hitch. Same address. Same name. Same Credit card. Strange.

    “Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.” If more Americans had believed this and acted upon it in the past 5 decades, we would not be where we are now. Black pain, suffering, oppression, murders, disenfranchisement, systemic racism, and so much more did not matter. Millions turned away their eyes and their hearts. Many believed that we are somehow less than human and not worthy of the lives that they wanted for themselves. That somehow we could/should wait for some later day. It is so ironic that now we have protests led by white people who sing Black spirituals and freedom songs and quote Black writers because they and theirs have been so privileged that they do not have their own oeuvre of such to draw from. For the first time in our history, the pain of terrorism, oppression, disenfranchisement and powerlessness is felt by people who have been the recipients of white privilege. There were those who thought that they were covered by this privilege (Asians, people who emigrated from India, some of Arab extractions and the more white-looking Hispanics) who joined whites in their disdain of Black people and certain classes of Brown people and are now realizing that in Trump’s America that they now have targets on their backs. No matter how this terrible time in our country’s life ends, Black people will still by and large be a despised minority who will reap few if any benefits of the new order that replaces it.

      Thinking the Dicktraitor wants to find a way to drag PBO into his giant messes. Let’s assume PBO will tread with caution.
      -Just heard Melania via a video that speculates she is being abused. Melania’s English is poor.
      -Can understand why Trump doesn’t want his base to hear her speak.
      -Considering how Trump (whose Mother, grandfather and wives were immigrants) is cruelly punishing young people born here – who are actually immersed into the cultural nuance and subtleties of the American language.

With a fantastic Moon occultation of Neptune 2 hours earlier, which will be visible from most of Antarctica, se South America and South Georgia. As for the PNW, we shan’t see much, since the smoke from wildfires is so heavy, I had ash blowing into my car, and settling all over my lap! For sure I’m staying in, and wearing a heavy duty mask if I have to go out. Be strong, TOD, be vigilant. Don’t be afraid. 💖🙏🏻🎶🗝🌕

      It should never have come to this, but I continue to SMH at how short-sighted people were to piss and moan at Democrats when the REAL enemy should have been so obvious.

      And unfortunately, this is what it finally takes to open some eyes.

    This is remarkable that people who live in this country, work in this country, pay state, local, and FEDERAL taxes, pay social security taxes, property taxes if they own property contribute more to THIS country than the very rich so-called Americans or the red state people who live on disability most of their life thanks to the Blue states and the “illegals” who pay in more taxes than we get back.

    What SHOULD BE ILLEGAL is that someone who pays taxes is NOT represented….Taxation without Representation!

    How immigrants like Melania Trump became white:
    Eastern Europeans were considered Inferior Whites when they came to America in the late 1800s and some of that lingers.

    GA TODville.

    The news today has been devastating, nothing but bad news since last Friday.

    Carlos, in New Mexico, is the type of person every parent hopes to raise — and he has done it without a father (sound familiar?).

    Since I don’t have a TV, don’t know how they’re framing Jeff Sessions deplorable announcement this morning, but have a feeling that they’re presenting an us vs. them POV, and not informing Americans that DACA recipients are *ineligible* for applying to become American citizens — they are caught in a Kafkaesque horror story, which I didn’t know, and think most people don’t.

    more…

    They Know They Can’t Win; They Just Want Black and Brown People to Lose Too

    Damon YoungToday 2:41pm

    But as the Trump administration prepares to phase out DACA—which protects at least 800,000 undocumented immigrants from deportation—please know that the people who support this terrible and evil act know that removing immigrants like those protected by DACA from America won’t resurrect those dead fucking jobs in those dead fucking cities. They know that the American manufacturing ship been sailed, and that Trump’s bitch ass is lying. Do not allow yourself to infantilize them or believe that there’s any nobility in their beliefs. Perhaps they’re ignorant about certain facts, but they understand the psychology of their president’s platform. They don’t give a damn about bettering their own
    fucking lives. They just want ours to suck, too.

    Fuck them all.
