    Was just watching MSNBC & they showed trump landing in the US – I turned it off – and remembered how much I used to love seeing AF1 when President Obama was on board. Still have my pictures of when he came to Australia & flew over my house. I am having a sad.

    New York Times compare Melania Trump to Michelle Obama nd social media is NOT happy. My question is what is the Times trying to do get on Trump good side. Melania can never compare to our Forever FLOTUS44. NEVER NEVER EVER.

    Adhering to tradition and decorum is a stanchion to our democracy and society. But these are extraordinary times with an illegitimate, dishonest and destructive president. Democratic representatives and senators should boycott the illegitimate state of the union speech.

      One fun way to take a stand for the rest of us is to boycott watching the SOTU in real time so trump’s ratings will be the lowest ever. He’ll HATE that. And then we can watch the Democratic response and (hopefully) give Joe Kennedy III’s remarks higher ratings!

        That’s what I’m doing. For the first time in 10 years, I am not giving extra credit for watching the State of the Union. I can’t, in all good conscience, have any of my students watch it. So put in all other sorts of extra credit instead, including reading books written by African American writers for Black History month coming up. So if anyone has a good book for 13-14 year olds to read, that’s not too long, let me know because I keep updating my current list.

      Not usually my movie genre, so for others like me who know nothing of comic book heroes and legends, some background:

        This movie is not about a comic book character. This movie is about the truth about blackness and it will make the heads of racists explode. It reminds me of Nikki Giovanni’s Ego Tripping but on steroids. I’m retired so I plan to see it in theater every mid morning for a week.

          • January 27, 2018 at 9:50 am

            The racism, the taking of blue state money to feed red states, the denigration of education and healthcare, the absolutely bizarre and corrupt religiosity, the constant demeaning of women, the disregard for the environment – these are all beyond disgusting but emblematic of the modern day GOP. I live in a huge blue state with pockets of deep red and I can’t see how we coexist past this see saw of 8 years of this and then 8 years of that. Two steps forward, two steps back. Trump seems like the absolute bottom but how do we really know that?
            It’s crazy.

                PBO traveled the nation and believed that there is more in common than what divides. I want to believe him but now that Russia has gamed our elections in cahoots with the GOP, we are faced with a terrible truth. Democracy is being tested beyond our wildest dreams yet half the country doesn’t understand this in the least and there are plenty of right wingers who do and believe it’s perfectly fine. They are not willing to do anything about it whatsoever. So what we are seeing more and more of is the extremes of extremism. This is terrible for lots of reasons.

                We are pinning an awful lot of our hopes on Mueller and I don’t know how realistic that is. I live in a very deep blue very diverse city but now we are facing directs threats from ICE for being a place of sanctuary. We will stand up to them but will we succeed? What damage will be done to families and communities?

                I can’t see a path forward except to work our butts off to elect Democrats in the next election in every seat in every county.

                • January 27, 2018 at 10:34 am

                  Meant to say DOJ instead of ICE. But ICE, too.

      Will do counter-programming while the vile and deplorable one speaks then will switch (with my fingers on the mute and change buttons if I do it too soon) to listen to JKIII. I hope the latter gets record busting high ratings, while the former gets the lowest in the history of SOTU telecast.

    One of Japan’s largest digital currency exchanges says it has lost some $534m (£380m) worth of virtual money in a hacking attack on its network.

    Coincheck suspended deposits and withdrawals for all crypto-currencies except Bitcoin as it assessed its losses in NEM, a lesser-known coin.

    If the theft is confirmed, it will be the largest involving digital currency.

    Another Tokyo exchange, MtGox, collapsed in 2014 after admitting that $400m had been stolen from its network.

    The stolen Coincheck money was said to be kept in a “hot wallet” – a part of the exchange connected to the internet. That contrasts with a cold wallet, where funds are stored securely offline.


    All the hyping of ‘digital currency’ is all complete bs.

    Mr Zeman, a pro-Russia and strident opponent of immigration, took 52% of the vote, narrowly beating Mr Drahos, a pro-EU academic with no prior political experience, Czech television reports.

    Saturday’s ballot was the second round for the presidential candidates.

    In the first round, Mr Zeman had 38.6% of the vote while Mr Drahos won 26.6%.
