Happy Birthday Martin Luther King

South Africa to formally protest Trump's 'shithole countries' remarks
South Africa will issue a diplomatic protest to the United States Monday over US President Donald Trump's "shithole countries" comments, according to its foreign ministry.

Dear Millennials , 
When Baby Boomers were your age, their civil rights leaders were gunned down in a 5 year span from 1963-1968. 
  • JFK 
  • Malcolm X 
  • MLK 
  • RFK.
We Persisted. Continue the fight.

I have a dream that Trump will shut the f*ck up today. #MLKDay - Andy Borowitz

The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam Trump

In the seven days since Oprah’s speech, Bannon was axed by Breitbart, Trump made his shithole comments, a porn star was revealed to have been paid $130K to deny having sex with Trump, and there was a fake missile attack on Hawaii, just in case you were wondering why you aged thirty years this week.- Andy Borowitz

I 💓 Conan O'Brien
Conan O’Brien was one of many Americans who were unhappy to read the reports that President Donald Trump called some foreign nations, including Haiti, “s—hole” countries — an insult that has been met with outrage and charges of racism. (Trump and Republican officials have disputed the exact comment, and today, Trump declared, “I am not a racist.”) But the host of Conan is not just doing a monologue about it, he’s hopping on a plane and letting cameras roll for an hour long special.

Still reeling from @realDonaldTrump’s very negative Yelp review of Haiti, which means I’ll love it. Headed to Haiti later this week to explore and make some new friends. Stay tuned for my report. #ConanWithoutBorders - Conan O'Brien

It would take 32-37 minutes for Korean missile to hit HI. Alert retraction took 38.

Dr. King was 26 when the Montgomery bus boycott began. He started small, rallying others who believed their efforts mattered, pressing on through challenges and doubts to change our world for the better. A permanent inspiration for the rest of us to keep pushing towards justice. - Barack Obama

I used to love to wake up in the morning when Barack Obama was president. Now I am afraid to wake up. - AHNC

As you may know, Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball, recently pinched Hillary Clinton's cheek and then claimed that he is not obsessed with her. But, as this story on Daily Kos shows, Matthews is not only obsessed with Ms. Clinton, he has a burning desire to belittle, denigrate, smear, malign, badmouth and vilify her. Blogger David Brock has compiled a thorough list of Matthews' offenses against Ms. Clinton (and a few other female political figures) and it's abhorrent. 

This Man Gave His Life For Us. - Rep. John Lewis

Today, Dr. King’s legacy is a guiding light. As we push and pull for a more just and more equal society, Dr King’s campaigns against war, against poverty, against racism show us that love is the universal value of a society at peace with itself. - Rep. John Lewis

  1. Thanks and Happy MLK day. Re Matthews: He worships JFK and probably fancies himself a devastating Don Juan like his hero. Hah!
