      You know, I’m sure everyone has heard the story about the scorpion and the frog. Long story short, a scorpion needed a ride across a river and he asked a frog to carry him across, and yes, the scorpion was a male because men more than women tend to do shit that can lead to their death. Anyways, the frog told the scorpion no, he told the scorpion he would sting him, and he’ll die. The scorpion told the frog that if he stung him he himself would die also. So, the frog agreed to take the scorpion across the river, and low and behold the scorpion stung the frog. As they were both about to drown the frog says to the scorpion, “why did you bite me, now we’re both doing to die.” The scorpion replied, “I’m a scorpion and that’s why I bit you.” I said all of that to say this, nobody, not even journalist should be surprised about DHS. Journalist have been playing footsies with Trump long before he got elected. They thought it was cute when Trump pushed birtherism, they never said a goddamn thing. And now that Trump is going after their asses, they want everyone to come to their rescue.

      For Naomi and all of the young activists from Ferguson to Parkland:

      Youth by Langston Hughes

      We have tomorrow
      Bright before us
      Like a flame.

      A night-gone thing,
      A sun-down name.

      And dawn – today
      Broad arch above the road we came.
      We march!

    Here’s a local piece about PBO’s love and respect for Hawaii Senator Danny Akaka, who passed away this weekend.

    Morning all.

    Does anyone tweet Joy Reid? Yes , Pres Obama’s red line was crossed (using chemical weapons) but, on her show, no one mentioned that President Obama did ask Congress for authority to strike in Syria which they refused. So it is on them as well. Someone needs to make this point and those on her show should have said so.

    Who knows what he knew about what Republicans in Congress would have tried if he proceeded without that authority

      I was surprised nobody on that panel said so. I don’t tweet, but hope someone here tweets Joy. Thank you!

      • 54 criquet
        April 8, 2018 at 10:44 am

        Yes, because a unilateral strike by USA could have and probably would have drawn the USA into a real battle/war with Russia, Iran etc leading and a war with serious consequences hence asking Congress. No one (including Democrats) ever really explain this and game it out. Obviously the PBO folks thought this out long term .

          I think it’s good to respectfully point this out to Joy. I love her intellectuality, & she will follow up.

      • April 8, 2018 at 10:45 am

        Yes someone need to contact Joy Reid and remind her of that point. But now Joy is talking about the trade war Trump is trying to get this country in with China.

      I don’t know a thing about the real estate business, I get all my knowledge from watching Millionaire Listings L.A. or New York. But it seems to me that if you’re the head of a governmental agency you shouldn’t be out there renting a room for $50 dollars a night. You’re telling me the head of the EPA is couch surfing, who does that?

      Yeah, their kids and grandkids are being impacted by the Orange Satan’s policies. Just goes to show you these middle class educated white voters were swayed by the white uneducated racists and the wealthy white educated lies.
