Sen. Mazie Hirono just made my day.

Speaking to Chris Hayes "Any effort on "his" part to blame the Democrats for the shutdown will be such bullshit that I wont be able to stand it".

This SHIT with the orange buffoon visiting the synagogue

tomorrow brings to my mind a question. Does a sitting president have the RIGHT to barge into any home or establishment that he wishes to be inside?

to write a shitty song about.

Never forget that we are the country that celebrates a day for

a man who was a sex slaver and child molester.

Columbus wrote to a friend in 1500: "A hundred castellanoes (a Spanish coin) are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten (years old) are now in demand."

Columbus was also responsible for the genocide of the Taino people.
Eventually, Columbus and later his brother Bartholomew Columbus who he left in charge of the island, simply resorted to wiping out the Taino altogether. Prior to Columbus' arrival, some scholars place the population of Haiti/Hispaniola (now at 16 million) at around 1.5 to 3 million people. By 1496, it was down to 1.1 million, according to a census done by Bartholomew Columbus. By 1516, the indigenous population was 12,000, and according to Las Casas (who were there) by 1542 fewer than 200 natives were alive. By 1555, every single one was dead.

Yet, we still teach our children to celebrate this monster.

Georgia school to bring back paddling

HEPHZIBAH, Ga. (WTHR) – A local school in Georgia is bringing back an old school policy to disciple their students this year.

Georgia School for Innovation and the Classics, a K through 9 charter school, recently sent home consent forms to inform parents of the new corporal policy.

According to NBC affiliate WAGT, the superintendent says they’ve received a little over a hundred forms back, a third of them giving consent to paddle their child.

The form says:

A student will be taken into an office behind closed doors. The student will place their hands on their knees or piece of furniture and will be struck on the buttocks with a paddle.

If parents opt out of paddling, they have to agree to up to five days of suspension.

This type of discipline is still legal in Georgia and 19 other states but it's rare for a school to have a policy for it.

Under the school's policy, parents will be contacted if their child is paddled and the school says they will use a three strike policy so the paddling doesn't happen on the first or second offense.
