The pure death cult that operates the GOP sure loves its ICE raids.

Nothing makes the nation safer then snatching a mother away from her two daughters on their way home from school, as happened today in National City, CA, right?

At least it’s a good distraction from all the thievery, bribery, and other malfeasance generated by this unified government of republicans unified in their groveling at the feet of Vladimir Putin and his gross orange sock puppet.

In bambuland, older men used to call young women/girls 'dear' and 'love' as a respectful term of endearment.

Now these men are being called 'dirty old men' and 'predators'.

Wow is right. Decades of consistent refusal, by presidents of both parties, to elevate the rogue state of North Korea by having the president meet with the NK dictator without talks being preceded by significant concessions. All pissed away by our fucking amateur president.

Wow!

155,215,000 Americans were employed in February, 785,000 more than last month’s record 154,430,000, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.

The number of employed Black Americans hit a record high of 19,087,000 last month, and a record 72,530,000 women 16 and older were counted as employed.

The labor force participation rate increased three-tenths of a point, and the nation’s unemployment rate remained at a low 4.1 percent for a fifth straight month.

The last time the unemployment rate was lower Bill Clinton was President.

Today Ole Bill is shunned by democrats who look more to Bernie Sanders for economic guidance.
Good luck with that.

So where are the steel mills going to get all the employees they're going to need?

And then we're going to have to listen to the Steelers whine about how they have to pay those workers so much. Boo Hoo Hoo

    Yes…..A diplomatic throw down between the Krazy Korean, Kim Jung Un, and the the Orange Idiot, Donald Trump. Based on the would-be American dictator’s seeming inability to make any sort of deal at all, this does not bode well for us. Our worst nightmare come to life….An international crisis with our side being led by an incompetent fool. Prognosis?—Poor. Oh well, I guess it beats an exchange of bombs. But we can always get around to that, depending on Trump’s state of distress over the Mueller investigation.

Maybe itz me, but.

Instead of (or in addition to) arming teachers, maybe there ought to be a button, or a series of buttons like they have for fires, in the schools.

Push the button and the alarm goes off in the police jurisdictions that  there is an active shooter situation in progress at the location. If there is one on the wall of each classroom then the police can identify where the shooter is. Or better yet. Press the button and a live feed of surveillance cameras placed around the school can give the dispatcher all the data. Instead of a poor 911 operator trying to follow the protocol of getting as much information from some poor victim hunkered under a desk!

How fucking hard would that be? We can snapchat videos of a dog's tongue coming out of our mouth in real time. The schools are wired to the internet. No more waiting for officer shitzhimself to radio it in, "I think he's overthataway!" Instant real time video.

I really can't stand how stupid this country is!

This may be a stopped clock situation, where at this moment it's going to tell the right time.  Amateur Orange may in fact be able to soothe Kim, and get some sort of deal - not because he has any diplomatic skills, but because a variety of circumstances are happening to converge on this generation of Kim.  His country is poor, and nukes are expensive, and sanctions have been eating away at them, and citizens are watching smuggled DVDs of Mad Men, and Kim has achieved his proof-of-penis with missiles that actually cross the ocean.  The mouse roared, the paper tiger purred, the People applauded, so the time is ripe.  Trump will no more deserve credit than he does for the continuing Obama boom cycle.  But he will take credit, and his base will be further besotted with adoration.
