I hate to be judgmental but this man is a piece of shit

From the Guardian here:

A Republican state lawmaker in Mississippi, the last remaining state in the US to carry the Confederate battle emblem within its official flag, has posted an incendiary threat on social media calling for those removing Confederate monuments from public display to be lynched.

Karl Oliver, a funeral director from Winona Mississippi who represents the 46th district of the state, made his explosive remarks on Facebook.

Be careful what you wish for

Yes Trump is a train wreck, I get it.

However, if you take him out are you going to be happier with Mike Pence, a Christian fascist at the helm?  Hates women, hates gay people, probably hates on Muslims very hard due to his hard Christianity.

How is that going to improve your life?  I understand that Pence is not going to be as dramatic and draining but he could actually do more damage than Trump with his calm exterior.

That’s not an upgrade as far as I’m concerned.

So no white folks in the fields?

From Reuters here:

President Donald Trump said he would seek to keep his tough immigration enforcement policies from harming the U.S. farm industry and its largely immigrant workforce, according to farmers and officials who met with him.

At a roundtable on farm labor at the White House last month, Trump said he did not want to create labor problems for farmers and would look into improving a program that brings in temporary agricultural workers on legal visas.

AG Sessions a rare example of the Alabama Albino Fascist Monkey species

From the Guardian here:

In the three months since he was sworn in as the 84th attorney general of the United States, Sessions has laid out his mission to restore “law and order” from ports of entry along the US-Mexico border to rooms packed with cops and federal authorities.

Law and order, my ass.

Sessions is a racist little monkey fuck.

 

Go black college students!

From NBC News:

Students at Texas Southern University in Houston had circulated a petition demanding the Texas senator be withdrawn as a commencement speaker, citing various stances he has taken. These included his confirmation votes in favor of DeVos and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his opposition to funding for so-called sanctuary cities that protect immigrants and his support for photo IDs for voting. The petition also cited Cornyn’s low rating by the NAACP.

“Having a politician such as him speak at our institution is an insult to the students, to TSU, and to all (historically black colleges and universities),” said the petition on the change.org site. “This is our graduation. We have the right to decide if we want to refuse to sit and listen to the words of a politician who chooses to use his political power in ways that continually harm marginalized and oppressed people.”

This isn’t about freedom of speech, it’s about not tolerating racists.

Again for the non believers, income inequality kills people

From the Guardian here:

Your average life expectancy now varies by more than 20 years depending on where you live in the United States, according to an in-depth study by the University of Washington.

America’s “life expectancy gap” is also predicted to grow even wider in future, with 11.5% of US counties having experienced an increase in the risk of death for residents aged 25–45 over the period studied (1980-2014). No previous study has put the disparity at even close to 20 years.
