Friday fooling

It is /astounding/ how what should be the various outlets for national news are focusing on such widely and wildly different stories. Often stories that directly contradict the other outlets. Bubbles bubbles everywhere

Just for some background on immigration viewed from...yeah, the conservatives.

"Why can't they (dreamers) go back and wait in line?"

See, I like questions like that because it invites a sharing of information. Problem is that as I try to explain why I keep hitting the wall where the caring, civilized human who asked the question gets confronted with the "why" and falls deep into "I dont care."
I dont believe you dont care. If the person in question was in front of you and asked for help- you'd try to help. You care, You just dont want to change your position. Sad.

I am for Dreamers. I am SO against paying for hitler's stupid wall. Grrrrrr! There's zero reason to stop the lottery. Hitler wants to end chain migration so he doesn't have to see his inlaws.
Holding kids lives hostage. Hrumph.
"Democrats want the dreamers so they can have those votes!" Um, honey? Then the Repubs do not want immigrants because they fear those same votes. Maybe you guys should check your own house.

Did I point you to the "Parthanon used to be painted" site? Well, one of them.

Did I point you to the photographer doing gorgeous prints of dark(er) toned models posed as Gods? Mmm they are beautiful works of beautiful people. Purpose is to counter the light skin= beauty myth. I think I did but here it is again

US immigration story includes No Quakers! No Germans! No Irish! No Italians! No Japanese! No No No etc etc. Basically, you are on the list so stop kidding yourself. ;)

I havent checked what Davros was like. Should I care?

Tariffs. My fav exchange with coworker-
He: "So you must be against the tariffs against Chinese solar panels."
Me: "No, I thought it was a great idea when Obama did it." ;)
