Re: “Supreme Court chides Court of Appeals again

Dragon Person: So in layman's terms, the Supremes were just choosing to be horses' patoots about it because they CAN be. Horses' patoots, that is.

Re: “Resistance continues in Arkansas

Regardless of what our local old white male trolls say, change is happening here
in the U.S.A. The white male patriarchy is dying off, and a more diverse population is growing.

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/201…

Here's a highlight from the census article linked above: "Non-Hispanic whites remain the only segment of the U.S. population where deaths outpace births."

Dying patients sometimes rally before the end. That's what's happening now, with the Repubs winning current elections. But the numbers are against them, and in the long run, they are doomed. Something different will take their place. Look at that ocean of white faces at Trump's rallies. Desperate people trying to hold on to their white privilege against the tide of change, and against the diversifying of America. I am not saying the Democrats will be that "something" that replaces Republicans. Both parties may well fade away. Maybe they both need to.

I am old enough that I may not live to see that new America, but I am grateful to have hope that it will be a more inclusive, welcoming, compassionate place than Trumpland. Our descendents deserve that.

Re: “The bathroom bill lives UPDATE

Why is this woman (Linda) so filled with hate and ignorance?

On the other hand...
I'd love to read what our Norma has to say about Collins-Smith's choice (and it is clearly a choice) of hair color.

Re: “State announces probation, end of transportation for facility where child died

So Mr. Sullivan's business gets most of its money from government Medicaid and nutrition programs?
Once again, "small government" Republicans prove they believe the only really important function of government is to put money in their own pockets.

Re: “Commission recommends 2 percent pay raise for all elected state officials; rejects big bump for Supreme Court

Hurrah for the Independent Citizens Commission! It's good to know there are still some people in power who have good sense. The Supremes should indeed get the same percentage raise as everybody else. A little humility would do them good.

Re: “In the news: No country for the poor or immigrant

Cato: I'm glad you wrote your 11:24 post. This issue has been on my mind so much lately. We are quite literally a nation of immigrants, and yet each succeeding group and generation wants to draw up the ladder behind us
(or blow up the bridge--whatever). "I got mine--who cares about you all". We suffer from our selective amnesia about our history. Anyone here in the U.S.whose heritage is not 100% Native American is descended from immigrants.

"When will we ever learn?" The old song asks a good question.
