    I wish we had someone left-leaning to explain this outrage to me... why the fuck would an appointed, rather than elected, person in Hawaii be able to allow immigration to all the other 49 states, overruling the POTUS?

    A quick google shows results from February citing 1800-2500 people entering the U.S. from countries that would have been banned, so something like 5,000 now in April? And Hawaii takes in 1-10 per year? Is that right?
    Nowadays when people start to get killed by fireballs, no one says they need to dodge the fireball anymore; they say they need to go get a fire resist ring and some ice damage so they don't have to.

    I dunno that there is anyone left-leaning remaining here to answer you. Left leaning thought has largely retreated from open message boards and migrated to various safe spaces and echo chambers with heavy moderation/censorship. Every lightly moderated or anything goes boards I am aware of have become right wing or center/right. While we may enjoy arguing the various merits and pitfalls of something the same can not be said of everyone. Insults and faux disgust are not discourse.

    The funny thing about that is if he had allowed Exxon to drill it would be an article about Trump being in collusion with the Russians and how hes disregarding the environment.
