      This has to be a joke right? Maybe The Hill just forgot to credit the Onion for this article. That would be a nope, and a nope on both. This is for real. The Senate chaplain stands before all these law makers, the majority of which support Trump's policy to separate children from parents, and offers a prayer? A prayer? WTF is that all about? Is this the same prayer these lame law makers say after each and every one of the gun massacres that happen on a frequent basis? That prayer? Sorry, but the words in the prayers spoken to our law makers ring hallow. Saying a prayer AFTER a crisis doesn't do a damn thing to alleviate the problem. Prayers do not seem to have any significance to our law makers. It's just a phony means by which to deceive the people into thinking these law makers have a conscience and are such good christians but this is nothing but a ruse. If ever there were a time for a fire and brimstone sermon, that would have been the time. The chaplain should have ripped those Senators a new one but instead he turned that minute and a half prayer into something that would put someone to sleep listening to his words.

      This makes one wonder if prayers are even relevant anymore.

          "The baritone voice of a Border Patrol agent booms above the crying. “Well, we have an orchestra here,” he jokes. “What’s missing is a conductor.”


          How can anyone listen to this and not feel their heart just break for these children?

              Does the headline offend you? It should. Those are the actual words coming out of the mouth of Seth Grossman, a Republican House candidate. These are the types of candidates who ran in 2010 and are now called the Freedom Caucus which consists of a bunch of Tea Party folk and this clown should fit in with them just fine. People, we do not need more crackpots, racists and hate mongers like this in Congress because we already have enough.

              Here is what Grossman lists on his web site as most important.

              1. Enforce immigration laws. Reduce legal immigration to sustainable levels.
              2. Repeal remaining Obamacare mandates that drive up the cost of health insurance.
              3. Allow Americans to protect themselves. Allow schools to do everything possible to protect our children.
              4. Let [fake] President Trump do his job. No fake impeachment charges, obstruction or resistance.

              1. So, in other words Grossman's sustainable levels would be what? "0" ?

              2. Yes, by all means repeal remaining Obamacare that drive up the cost of insurance and allow the private insurance companies to actually drive up the cost even higher with the added bonus feature of discriminating against anyone with a pre-existing condition.

              3. Oh, yes we must allow Americans, most likely only white Americans, to protect themselves and allow schools to do everything possible to protect our children. While speaking of children one could surmise that Grossman here is all for ripping children from the arms of their mothers.

              4. Finally here comes the best part. Let's protect Trump from impeachment charges, obstruction and resistance. In other words, forget the law.

              Check out Grossman's web site for yourself. See if you can find one single person of color in any of the photos Grossman uses on his site.

              Trump Caught In A Big Lie And Tries To Blame The Democrats

                  As you will see in this video Trump has repeatedly said that separating children from their parents is the law the Democrats have forced upon him. That is one big fat LIE! Trump goes on to say, he hates it, he hates it, he hates to see separation and yet doesn't do a damn thing to stop it and what is even more disgusting it was Trump who sent Sessions the memo (as you will see in the video) to separate children from parents. Now Trump and those two liars Conway/Huckabee-Sanders are trying to twist it into something the Democrats wanted and put in place which again is a big fat LIE!


                  The video isn't long but is really shows Trump to be a complete liar and how Trump is lying his ass off to get out this mess HE created.

                      I wasn't sure whether to put this in womens voices or social justice.

                      It's just news.

                      The former US First Lady Laura Bush has condemned a controversial policy that splits up families who illegally enter the country at the Mexican border.

                      Writing in the Washington Post newspaper, she describes the separation of children from their parents as cruel, immoral and heart-breaking.

                      Her comments follow growing controversy over President Donald Trump's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy.

                      Earlier Melania Trump made a rare statement expressing concern.

                      Mrs Trump "hates to see children separated from their families", her spokeswoman said.

                          This has to be one of the best, if not the best pieces I have read in a long time. Chris Hedges, the author puts it all in perspective and includes all the players in this dangerous scenario we are encountering today. This just didn't happen with the election of Trump, this was a tumor that was left unattended and was growing for many years.

                          "The Trump administration did not rise, prima facie, like Venus on a half shell from the sea. Donald Trump is the result of a long process of political, cultural and social decay. He is a product of our failed democracy. The longer we perpetuate the fiction that we live in a functioning democracy, that Trump and the political mutations around him are somehow an aberrant deviation that can be vanquished in the next election, the more we will hurtle toward tyranny. The problem is not Trump. It is a political system, dominated by corporate power and the mandarins of the two major political parties, in which we don’t count. We will wrest back political control by dismantling the corporate state, and this means massive and sustained civil disobedience, like that demonstrated by teachers around the country this year. If we do not stand up we will enter a new dark age."


                          So, who all are the culprits which allowed the big corporations, or should we say shadow government, to run our country. As Democrats here most of us would put the blame on Trump, or the Tea Party and even the Republican Party all as being guilty or at least complicit in bringing down our Country but what about our Party the Democratic Party? Is it really the saving grace or is it also part of the problem unbeknownst to us? If the Democrats are supposedly on the side of the working/middle class then why are they taking huge sums of money from these corporations in campaign donations just like the Republicans? When the Democrats were in power why didn't anyone within the Party push to get rid of Citizens United?


                          This article might seem to be a bit of a doomsday scenario but all the elements which make it so are actually in place within our government and are working. In my last discussion piece I advocated for more protests, more civil disobedience and even called for a national strike against these corporate entities. Power not only comes from wealth but also from having one of the most powerful tools imaginable which gives equality to each and every one at the voting booth and that would be the vote itself. If we don't vote or don't vote wisely then we end up where we are today.
