That teen needs to be sent to reform school or boot camp or something - he definitely needs therapy. He could all too easily devolve into a terrorist. Attitudes like his have no place in the 21st century of the Common Era. And yes, he is precisely what Republicans are becoming.

SNL: Such a fun, talented group of folks there. Love the cast, wish they were on longer though....dam.

PP: Spot on! An excellent rallying cry against all the lies!

DK: I'm all for expelling him, but also have an immediate ARD on him. Put him into an alternative school for the next semester, or longer. Social services needs to be contacted as well, to explore the home environment. Since the police were notified, and didn't see/think anything wrong on this issue, I'd see what they have to say about the terrorist threat that he made to video, and do it in a city council meeting. This kid needs counseling, and by that I mean, cultural relations counseling and or classes. His hate is real, and it needs to be addressed.

Cartoon: There are songs that one remembers for a long, long time. This is one of those.

HI, WWWendy! Glad that you are feeling better. Don't overdo though. Take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

5:42 Not Wishbone.

SNL - Very creatively presented - but still straight news (which must please Mike Pence.)

Other PP - Some of us always saw through them (Barbara Lee, for example). Others of us will NEVER see through this ploy.

DKos - (Marissa Higgins) has been doing an excellent job lately of covering these incidents. I might point out that Missouri was admitted to the US as a slavery state (remember the Missouri Compromise?), and also that the team name of this school is "Kickapoo Chiefs," which suggests the school, and the school district are not very "woke." In that environment, I would expect law enforcement to make a distinction between "we f-ing should" and "we f-ing are going to," and deide the language is not a threat. I don't agree, of course. I would also, however, point out that if this is, as it sounds like, a public school, and the students of color are US citizens, as the Constitution dictates, they DO "own the place" co-equally with the melanin-deprived. The school is probably full of such melanin-deprived bigots, studenta and faculty alike. The history of the human race suggests that punishment as a deterrent (i.e., not to deter the offender from repeating, but to deter OTHERS from offending in the same way) does NOT work. What the whole town really needs is re-education sith a concentration in civics. I don't see that happening any time soon.

Cartoon - Oh, no, I'm not going there.

SNL: Great opening act. Loved the job they did.
PP: Perfect one tell tRump we don't want another war, nor anymore of his lies.
DK: Agree with Pat that the student needs to be expelled. We don't need or want that type of crap in our schools today.
Glad to hear that you are improving. Just make sure you're not pushing yourself too much. We want you to get better fast. Enjoy your time with Wendy.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

"the police do not think threatening LYNCHING to the Black & LGBTQIA teens in High School is a POLICE MATTER!!"

3:01 Sorry, I know you would have loved to have that dawg for tea, TomCat.

SNL: Oh, no. It’s not the end of the season, is it?

PP: Still keeping my fingers crossed Don’s reflecting the sentiments of the majority of Americans in parodies like this.

DK: That’s how it starts, pathetic, frustrated white teenagers with a soda sugar-rush and mental-health issues, trying to make themselves look ‘like a real man’ by mouthing off in front of a phone. If this happened in another country, I would have suggested to give this kid some counselling. But his daddy probably has a cupboard full of guns; he might even own some himself, so this squeak will need to be watched too and put away safely when his frustration is about to boil over.

Cartoon: 🤨
