    A political cartoon I saw today made the point that all our pointless wars and policies are causing waves of refugees around the world.

    Some of these refugees are definitely our fault for poking our noses where they don’t belong.

    Paul Salopek, the National Geographic explorer who is walking across Africa, Asia, and eventually the Americas in his "Out of Eden" project has called this the golden age of migration. Not just the wars and regime changes, but cultural changes, food shortages, and I suppose fear of violence.

    Water shortages, too. Is it Chennai, in India?

    That's terrifying--they have surgeons resorting to buying water.
    You can't live long without it.

    Ever listen to Mos Def's song New World Water? Lyrics are as follows.

    There's nothing more refreshing (that cool refreshing drink)
    Than a cool, crisp, clean glass of water
    On a warm summer's day (That cool refreshing drink)
    Try it with your friends

    New World Water make the tide rise high
    Come inland and make your house go "Bye" (My house!)
    Fools done upset the Old Man River
    Made him carry slave ships and fed him dead nigga
    Now his belly full and he about to flood somethin
    So I'ma throw a rope that ain't tied to nothin
    Tell your crew use the H2 in wise amounts since
    it's the New World Water; and every drop counts
    You can laugh and take it as a joke if you wanna
    But it don't rain for four weeks some summers
    And it's about to get real wild in the half
    You be buying Evian just to take a ****in bath
    Heads is acting wild, sippin poor, puffin dank
    Competin with the next man for higher playin rank
    See I ain't got time try to be Big Hank,
    **** a bank; I need a twenty-year water tank
    Cause while these knuckleheads is out here sweatin they goods
    The sun is sitting in the treetops burnin the woods
    And as the flames from the blaze get higher and higher
    They say, "Don't drink the water! We need it for the fire!"
    New York is drinkin it (New World Water)
    Now all of California is drinkin it (New World Water)
    Way up north and down south is drinkin it (New World Water)
    Used to have minerals and zinc in it (New World Water)
    Now they say it got lead and stink in it (New World Water)
    Fluorocarbons and monoxide
    Push the water table lopside
    Used to be free now it cost you a fee
    Cause oil tankers spill they load as they roam cross the sea
    Man, you gotta cook with it, bathe and clean with it (That's right)
    When it's hot, summertime you fiend for it (Let em know)
    You gotta put it in the iron you steamin with (That's right)
    It's what they dress wounds and treat diseases with (Shout it out)
    The rich and poor, black and white got need for it (That's right)
    And everybody in the world can agree with this (Let em know)
    Consumption promotes health and easiness (That's right)
    Go too long without it on this earth and you leavin it (Shout it out)
    Americans wastin it on some leisure shit (Say word?)
    And other nations be desperately seekin it (Let em know)
    Bacteria washing up on they beaches (Say word?)
    Don't drink the water, son they can't wash they feet with it (Let em know)
    Young babies in perpetual neediness (Say word?)
    Epidemics hopppin up off the petri dish (Let em know)
    Control centers try to play it all secretive (Say word?)
    To avoid public panic and freakiness (Let em know)
    There are places where TB is common as TV
    Cause foreign-based companies go and get greedy
    The type of cats who pollute the whole shore line
    Have it purified, sell it for a dollar twenty-five
    Now the world is drinkin it
    Your moms, wife, and baby girl is drinkin it
    Up north and down south is drinkin it
    You should just have to go to your sink for it
    The cash registers is goin "cha-chink!" for it
    Fluorocarbons and monoxide
    Got the fish lookin cockeyed
    Used to be free now it cost you a fee
    Cause it's all about gettin that cash (Money)

    Swalwell, realistic, is out. Sestak and Steyer, delusional, are in.

    Oh great we trade a nothing candidate for two other nothing candidates.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Lets just hope Starbuck's Schultz doesn't join Sestak and Steyar. Personally I'm not voting for anyone with an S name.

    So CNN is reporting that now we have a top tier of Democratic candidates: Joe Biden tenuously holding on to #1, Kamala Harris who is burning the track right now, Elizabeth Warren, strong and steady, and Bernie fighting to stay in the lead.

    I hope it's catchy as hell, because the lyrics are certainly on point.
