    This is a good read. Didn’t see it earlier but if already posted, ignore:

    “The problem here isn’t that we think Richard Cohen gags at the site of an interracial couple and their children. The problem is that Richard Cohen thinks being repulsed isn’t actually racist, but “conventional” or “culturally conservative.” Obstructing the right of black humans and white humans to form families is a central feature of American racism. If retching at the thought of that right being exercised isn’t racism, then there is no racism. ”

      Cohen’s previous column, ICYMI (I didn’t read his column).

      Jeff Bezos really needs to step in and ask Cohen to step down. He’s an insult to Americans and the Washington Post. (posted this tweet on one of the morning threads):

        My elementary education was in a one room schoolhouse with outhouses and I knew more about slavery? We carried our water in with buckets to wash our hands and got it from a cistern using a pump. And I’m not the oldest one on TOD. I was about three years old before I saw a black woman. I don’t think I saw another until high school. Not in my school either. But I knew all about racism. I knew of slavery. I knew it wasn’t benign. Maybe I can’t string words together like Cohen can, but I know more. I’d never heard of this guy until today. Why oh why did I pick today to follow the link to his column.

    The devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan cast a gloom over U.N. climate talks that kicked off Monday in Poland as the envoy from the Philippines — where thousands are believed to have died when the cyclone made landfall Friday — broke down in tears and announced he would fast until a “meaningful outcome is in sight.” Naderev “Yeb” Sano’s emotional appeal was met with a standing ovation at the start of two-week talks in Warsaw where more than 190 countries will try to lay the groundwork for a new pact to fight global warming. Sano’s tears, which he wiped away with a red handkerchief, made other delegates at the COP19 react emotionally as well.

    Choking on his words, he said he was waiting in agony for news from relatives caught in the massive storm’s path, though he was relieved to hear his brother had survived. “In the last two days he has been gathering bodies of the dead with his own two hands,” Sano said. “In solidarity with my countrymen who are struggling to find food back home … I will now commence a voluntary fasting for the climate,” he added. “This means I will voluntarily refrain from eating food during this (conference) until a meaningful outcome is in sight.”

    Some may have seen my post yesterday, but I found a video of his speech:

    The Philippines is extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change for two main reasons: geography and development. As my colleague Brad Plumer points out in an excellent piece on what the Philippines’ experience with Typhoon Haiyan tells us about global efforts to adapt to climate change, a recent United Nations report identified the country as the third-most at-risk from climate change in the world, ranked behind the South Pacific island nations of Vanuatu and Tonga.

    But the Philippines isn’t just susceptible to climate change because it’s an island nation located in a part of the world that gets a lot of big tropical storms. This map, from a report by the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources, shows how other specific geographical factors contribute to its particular vulnerability. Regional wind patterns, for example, can worsen the risk posed by extreme rainfall events……

        When you were starting out in your career, would you just have gone with the flow, so as not to create any waves? Or would you have mapped out things so you could do what you thought was best for your employer or the common good, what was required in your position description, hoping success would follow you? These people just repeat what the other is saying. Nobody takes a stand or differentiates from the party line. As media people, they are particularly revolting doing it. Paid swine. Non-journalists.

    According to Dave Weigel, a handful of conservatives in Virginia are struggling to reconcile a state painted red with a narrow McAuliffe victory. Obviously, the explanation is that the handful of “blue” counties have many, many more people than the “red” counties. In fairness to those Virginia conservatives, this is a common issue. A couple of months ago, a map of AIDS in the United States went viral with the accompanying statistic that 92 percent of AIDS cases occur in 25 percent of counties.

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    But what percent of the population lives in those same 25 percent of counties? I actually don’t know, but I know that 84 percent of Americans live in the largest 25 percent of counties. I also know that 50 percent of the population lives in 5 percent of counties. So the statistic was mainly, although not exclusively, telling us that most people live in a handful of counties. There might be something interesting about where people with AIDS live (like, they’re probably more likely to live in urban counties) but that was left for me to deduce from my unreasonable level of knowledge of America’s counties.

    Fortunately, there’s a solution: the cartogram, where the area of spaces on a map is determined by a variable other than geographic area. In this case, it’s population: Make the most populous counties proportionately larger than the least populous counties.

    • November 12, 2013 at 8:39 pm

      Sometimes relating material to more recognized material is helpful. I am not sure that this map actually achieves that though.

      I do remember in the 2008 general election after Palin entered the race prior to the Katie Couric interview when people were impressed with her being a former mayor and Governor of the largest state that I had to relate the population comparison from cities in our state to hers for people to get that it was not impressive. I found that the city when she was mayor was the same size as our local rural city and suddenly people opened their eyes to the reality. Also the state of AK population without including the suburbs equaled our state’s two larger cities. So the governorship was closer to that of a mayor when comparing.

      • November 12, 2013 at 8:51 pm

        I believe that is exactly what this cartogram is doing “Also the state of AK population without including the suburbs equaled our state’s two larger cities.” Instead of mapping geographical size (sq miles) of cities, it is mapping based strictly on population. That’s why the bottom continental map is much “bluer” reflecting the ’12 Presidential vote. Quite frankly, Obama Grandma, I was just intrigued by this new visual floating around in the world of political science…….most of this “in the weeds” stuff is over my head 🙂

      • November 12, 2013 at 9:36 pm

        It’s comparable to WY a little. Just in the last five years we went just over half a million. Just look at our size. There is lots of empty space here.

          Well, CarolMaeWY I think the venerated founding fathers set up a very unfair system. Your population in WY, is slightly over half a million (563,626, per 2010 census). Our population in CA is almost 38 million (37,745,956, per 2010 census). Yet each of our state has two Senators in the U.S. Senate. As a matter of fact, the combined population (37,746,632) of 16 of the states that are some of the most anti-President Obama (SC, LA, KY, OK, MS, AR, KS, UT, WV, NE, ID, MT, SD, AK, ND, WY) is almost identical to the entire population of the state of California. These states are represented by 32 Senators, 27 of whom are Republicans and the most rabidly anti Obama. In other words, 60% of the Republican Senators that have been among the most obstructionist represent a combined total population that’s almost identical to the total population of CA. It’s blatantly unfair that 38 million people in 16 Red States are represented by 32 U.S. Senators, whereas 38 million Californians are represented by only 2 Senators.

  13. November 12, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Chips, UT….. my daily ask……..mind taking my comment out of moderation? TY 🙂

    ….How could you change the law to do this? It would be really, really hard. The main rationale for Obamacare is that the individual-health-care market is dysfunctional. Most people who can’t get group insurance — either through their job or through a government-financed plan, like Medicare — can’t get any insurance at all. Insurers have to make sure they don’t attract sick customers, so they either attach hidden conditions to their insurance to protect against covering expensive care, or else limit their policies to very healthy people. That’s why people with individual insurance are much less satisfied than people with group-based insurance.

          She better want him to shut up, because he can turn off alot of voters. Believe it or not everyone don’t love him that much or her that much. There are some who will not vote for her because of him. Take notice it was James Carville running his ugly mouth yesterday, then Bill Clinton is running his today, maybe Hillary agrees with what they are saying.

    • November 12, 2013 at 8:28 pm

      I’m ignoring the Hill and Bill show as much as possible.

      Agree with Carolyn on the last thread that the thought of Bill rattling around the White House spooks me.

      Makes zero sense for another Clinton in the WH 2017 and beyond. If that were to happen, the US would have had a Bush or Clinton as Pres/VP going back to 1981, with the only reprieve being 2009-2017.

      We can do better than that.

        I was so glad to hear Barbara Bush say two Bushes are enough, we don’t need another Bush in the White House. Mother knows best, and I think everyone in that family listens to mom. Since that statement the talk about Jeb has died down. I don’t want another Clinton, I certainly don’t want another Bush, I don’t want the presidency to be a dynastic perk to be handed down in families. That is not what we are. We left the dynastic plan when we left England.

    He’s all style, no substance; don’t think he’s very bright either — not smart enough to be President.

    And he dumped his wife for a TV news bimbette.

    Chris Hayes has been good tonight. Right now he is talking to people about that Moms Demand Action event in Texas, where the Open Carry Texas men gathered to threaten and intimidate the women. He spoke to one of the women who was there, she asked to be shaded so as not to be recognized, she was afraid.
    Now he’s talking to the president of Moms Demand Action and two others. Moms Demand Action has grown to 100,000 in less than a year. She said there is at least one chapter in every state. The president of Open Carry Texas is running for Congress against Joe Barton, saying he is not conservative enough, and does not defend the second amendment enough!!!
    Now she’s talking about Congress 2014…..getting the right moms and women in Congress. Way to go!

She has been part of the fabric of my life. So glad to see her become an ambassador!

I congratulate her, I know she will do well; I treasure the letter I received from her and her brother following their mother’s passing; though I know it was somewhat a form letter, it had their signatures and it is a part of my memory box for Jackie O. I love them all with all my heart. Always have, always will.

        🙂 When I was a young girl living in the USVI…Jackie Kennedy Onassis came to visit the island on her husband’s yacht. It just so happened that my sister and I were walking along the waterfront at JUST the right moment when she stepped off the launch and onto the waterfront right in front of us…she came right over to both of us and spoke to us for a few moments…. I have fond memories of Jackie Kennedy myself:)

          Wow, what a treasured memory for you. Sounds idyllic, like Camelot.

          I saw President Kennedy in a motorcade, downtown San Diego. Was pretty young, don’t remember the details, but remember the excitement.

          People who didn’t live through the era don’t know the excitement and the “vigor” (a favorite Kennedyesque term) that he brought to the nation’s youth. Much like our current President, who is constantly undermined by the MSM, so it’s easy for people not paying attention to forgot PBO’s appeal.

      50 years ago I was in 5th grade, with the best teacher ever.

      In the same classroom, less than three months apart, our teacher engaged us in discussing the horrific shocking assassination of our President and then the joyous splash the Beatles made on Ed Sullivan (Feb 1964).

      Things seemed to move so much more quickly then; real events happened, not the cherrypicking of stories that now passes for journalism.

      The photo of John-John saluting his father’s casket at age 3 is iconic and forever poignant.

              Black-eyed Peas are prevalent in Oklahoma. They purport to be “southern food” actually, they are pretty much grease pits, with prefrozen food microwaved and set under a heat lamp before serving. We went once over 25 years ago and have never been back.

    Ken Burns: Bill De Blasio Has Agreed To Settle 10-Year-Old Central Park Five Case

    During a visit to HuffPost Live Tuesday to discuss his new initiative “Learn the Address,” documentary filmmaker Ken Burns gave an update on the ten-year-old Central Park Five civil suit and told host Josh Zepps that New York City’s new mayor will finally settle the case.

    Burns’ 2012 documentary “The Central Park Five” tells the story of five juveniles convicted in 1990 of raping a jogger in Central Park. In 2002, the convictions of the five defendants were vacated when another man confessed to the crime. The following year, the Central Park Five filed a civil suit against the City of New York for their wrongful convictions that, after a decade, has yet to be resolved.

    “Bill de Blasio, the mayor-elect, has agreed to settle this case, and though this is justice delayed way too long, and that is justice denied, [they] will not only be exonerated … but they will have justice, they will see some closure, they will be able to be made whole,” Burns said.

    Burns joined HuffPost Live last year before the film’s release with one of the exonerated members of the Central Park Five. Burns said then of New York City’s refusal to settle the 10-year-old case, “the city has put molasses into the system,” and that 10 years later “this is still an open wound that we continue to pick the scab on.”

    I have asked this before, not sure anyone responded. Would it be too late to introduce an amendment to the Law by adding a Public Option(Government offered Health Plans) Specifically to people who are receiving these cancellations? I would think it would be a win win, private insurers would have true competition, and I project they would stop sending out these cancellations. And finally this would bolster the President agenda and belief in Government.

    Why don’t we make the Law better, instead of letting the media/CLintons/Conservadems do everything to hurt the Law? Just wondering. Thanks

      I really don’t have an accurate answer, but at first look, the “public option” nomenclature could bring an amendment like that down at this point in time. Because, you know, it’s “only” 2013. Argghhh.

      It is what we need, we all know that! I think it’s where we are heading, too. Pretty sure President Obama and people like Nancy Pelosi believe that after we get ACA running in 2014, the next step is public option! May take years, but this is the first time I’ve felt this hopeful about it.

      Chipsticks answered your question and you responded to her. A public option cannot be added at this point. If a public option could have been part of ObamaCare, it would have been added when the law was originally passed. There were no votes then and there are no votes now.

      Those who receive cancellations can get subsides and if they don’t get subsidies, it means they are making more than enough to live on. They are not poor. It only affects 3-5% of the population.

      We might be heading towards a public option as the years go on but for now, President Obama has said his administration is exploring how they can close the gap for that minuscule number. It would be best to wait and see what he proposes.

        I was only trying to get various feedback on the suggestion/question I had. This is no my site, I am only a visitor here, not trying to shake things up. I only thought that as some democrats were trying to hurt the law, and the media trying to undermine the President that maybe calling their bluff wouldn’t be a bad thing. I do believe in time the Public Option is the solution to get these Private Insurers to actually do right by their policy holders. Right now they are feeling arrogant due to the fact that there is no other entity that will challenge them.

        Thank you for your answer.

    Night all.. think happy good thoughts for my dog tomorrow…getting some surgery done. I called the mobile vet…never done that before, but my dog has trouble getting in the car now because of her age and she’s giant….hope it goes well. I’ll be here with her, in our house, so I hope that she’ll be more comfortable. Anyway, I’m outta here. Tomorrow is a new day.
