    Hawaii Lawmakers Fire Back at Sessions for ‘Island in the Pacific’ Comment

    Hawaii's two Democratic senators fired back at Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday for saying that a federal judge who blocked President Donald Trump's immigration order hailed from "an island in the Pacific."

    "The suggestion that being from Hawaii somehow disqualifies Judge Watson from performing his Constitutional duty is dangerous, ignorant, and prejudiced.


    I am frankly dumbfounded that our nation's top lawyer would attack our independent judiciary.


    But we shouldn't be surprised," Sen. Mazie Hirono said in a statement.

    You don't suppose that Sessions comment meant that the judge's home state was protected from the illegal immigration wave by thousands of miles of water do you? Wow, a non PC violating explanation.

    You don't know Sessions like I do ... he's a klansman neo-nazi low-life piss-ant from Alabama.

    He stated this as 'Blacks in Alabama' or 'Mexicans in the U.S.' or 'Anybody not an inbred-white' ... doesn't belong here.



    It would be like me stating ... 'RWNJ's are on an Island on this Forum'



    LOL

    It would be refreshing to hear the occasional AG of a state like Arizona, Texas or Oregon dismiss a proclamation out of Washington as coming from "a failing, podunk little Southern town".

    Oh, I would never!

    According to this site, http://arcadia-fl.gov/ it's the "best small town in Florida".

    And it's on the Internet, so you know it has to be true.

    It is a great town with a long history, it was known as tater hill bluff, until sometime around the civil war. We have a thriving Antuiqes district downtown. Local politicians are constantly infighting and the nepotisim runs deep, though.
    I don't know a lot, but what I do know about, I know a lot about.
