    Congratulations, CarolMae! Feeling relieved today that Oregon stepped ahead on reducing gun violence and passed our bill. We have more work to do. Next session, we will bring back the Charleston Loophole bill and pass it on the third try. Meanwhile, we are getting ready to defeat two more terrible GOP legislators so our majorities will be even more robust.

    When I say, that these teens have NFTG:

    A survivor of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School criticized Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Twitter early Friday, suggesting he is “easy to buy” for accepting donations from the National Rifle Association (NRA).
    “We should change the names of AR-15s to ‘Marco Rubio’ because they are so easy to buy,” Stoneman Douglas sophomore Sarah Chadwick tweeted Friday.

    This was the aim of Carter G. Woodson, a black historian and originator of Negro History Week in 1926. He believed that appreciating a people’s history was a prerequisite to equality. He wrote of the commemoration, “If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world.” That is, no amount of legislation can grant you equality if a nation doesn’t value you.

    This is the story of black America — underappreciated and perpetually experiencing trickle-down citizenship wherein progress only reaches us if the nation’s cup runneth over.

    This line stands out to me in fact it cut me deep…

    JUST IN: New criminal information filed against Rick Gates. It includes two counts, conspiracy and making a false statement. Still no hearing scheduled, but this is usually the harbinger of a plea https://t.co/260IrsAOOl

    Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Sarah Chadwick tweeted this late Thursday night:

    Hello TODbots.
    CarolMae, congrats on your Au ⭐
    Thanks, NW.
    TGIF, Finally. Lots of snow. But It was not as heavy. One Neighbor did the unexpected, he snow plowed off the packed heavy snow piled up by the City Snow Plowers. 1st time ever. Wow!

    So Gates has now been Meullerfied 😉
    OK, then.

    Manafort statement on Gates: “I had hoped and expected my business colleague would have had the strength to continue the battle to prove our innocence. For reasons yet to surface he chose to do otherwise.”

      I don’t blame him. He is a 30yr sheriff officer and close to retirement. He took the cushy job because it was “safe”. A quiet well off community who knew a deranged student would come to school with a AR-15. He was probably armed with a regular sheriff issued 6 shooter. How can you defend yourself let alone students up against an AR-15. When the bank robbers armed with body armor, keffler helmets were shooting it out with the L.A. PD in 2000, the LAPD was out gunned and had to take over AR-15 weapons from a local gun store to defend themselves. ONE officer can patrol a whole school. What if the gunman takes him out first? Some kids will get away but not all. It boogles my mind that the 14/15yr old that was shot 5 times and survived. He will need YEARS of surgery and mental therapy.

        The thing is, those kids were UNARMED heroes without the officer’s professional training. They were shot holding doors to either protect others or help them escape.

        He’s getting heat because he left those kids to fend for themselves. Might the officer have been able to locate the shooter by the sound of the shots and try to take up a position to at least disable him?

        We’ll never know.

      “Trump says Kelly will decide on Kushner clearance”

      Speaking on Friday at a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Trump defended his son-in-law, saying that he is doing important work at the White House and not accepting a paycheck.

      “He has done an outstanding job,” Trump said. “I think he has been treated unfairly. He is a high-quality person. He works for nothing. Nobody ever reports that. He gets zero. He doesn’t get a salary.”

      The president said he trusts that Kelly will make the right decision on whether to revoke Kushner’s clearance or not.

    Where are politicians sending their kids to school? Not public schools I bet. Send Cadet Bone Spurs for security duty! He missed his chance to fight for his country …

    Gotta say, PBO’s tweet “…we have been waiting for you” to the students almost made me cry.
