About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

So..Is the entire federal government gone mad? Well.no, here is an example.

Everyone in the federal government has not gone mad. Most, are doing their jobs trying to help the best that they can. And you might say..Well give me an example of what you are saying. Here is an example of a group of people who work for the federal government who are warning people about a dangerous condition. Hit the link and you will see the official weather forecast for the area that I live in. The people at the federal government...the national weather service, are warning people about the heat and the danger that it presents.. Strong warning, take a look. Even on a Sunday these people are doing their job.

Telemundo suspends hosts who made racist gestures on live TV

Source: Yahoo News


A pair of Telemundo hosts on the morning show Un Nuevo Dia have been suspended by the network after making racist gestures following South Korea’s 2-0 win over Germany that helped Mexico advance to the Round of 16 in the World Cup on Wednesday.

James Tahhan, better known as “Chef James,” and Janice Bencosme made racist and inappropriate “slant-eyed” gestures while laughing during the live Telemundo morning show. The rest of the panel, who were all sporting Mexico team gear, were laughing.

“We are extremely disappointed with our morning show contributors James Tahhan’s and Janice Bencosme’s gestures referring to the South Korean national soccer team,” Telemundo said in a statement. “Our company takes this type of inappropriate behavior very seriously as it is contrary to our values and standards.

“As a result, both James Tahhan and Janice Bencosme have been placed on an indefinite suspension.”

Arrogance and Extreme Stupidity..and hate!

Jeff Sessions Jokes About separated families to laughing crowd: New York Daily News.

This happened on Tuesday....yes at link there is a short video of him joking...One minute and 15 secs.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-news-sessions-families-06272018-story.html

________________________________________________________________________________________

Attorney General Jeff Sessions cracked a joke about the administration’s immigration chaos, and was greeted with laughs at the idea of separated families.

Sessions spoke Tuesday to a crowd at the conservative-leaning Criminal Justice Legal Foundation, and accused critics of his “zero tolerance” immigration policy of hypocrisy.

“These same people live in gated communities, many of them, and are featured at events where you have to have an ID to even come in to hear em speak. They like a little security around themselves,” he said. “If you try to scale the fence they’d be even too happy to have you arrested and separated from your children.”

The last line brought laughs and a few cheers from the audience in Los Angeles, which was greeted with protests by those who see the separation of children from their undocumented parents as inhumane.

...This is the Attorney General of the United States making fun of arresting children..Well this needs to go viral and everyone will know about this jerk. He and his boss are one and the same. FU**ING ASS**LES!!!!

Will Trump appeal the court order issued last night?

If he appeals, the crisis continues.
If he doesn't appeal, and abides by the court decision, then he has been proven wrong on this issue of separation..

What will Trump/federal government do?...I think he will not admit defeat..(although wisdom says he should)...and he will appeal. He thinks abiding by this court ruling would be "giving in".. But in a few hours we will find out what Trump does.

And one thing is totally clear...appealing or not appealing is totally Trump's decision and no one else.

Trump Tweets People Who ‘Invade’ US Must Be Immediately Deported Without ‘Judges Or Court Cases’
_________________________________________________________________________________________
WASHINGTON (CNN) – Another Sunday morning tweet from the President is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
CBS Miami


President Donald Trump on Sunday called for the US to deport people without judicial proceedings, referred to an invasion by “these people” and railed against standing immigration laws.

“We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents…” Trump tweeted.

Is Trump setting himself above the U.S. Constitution? Looks like he is...

You Think Trump has reached the "BOTTOM"...you are wrong...This is a bottom:

Iraqi deaths in Iraq war..........depends on what you read.........150,000 .low...600,000 high.
...........................................depends on source ...........

check out different sources at link below:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_Iraq_War



U.S.A .............................................................deaths.......... 4100... approx.
..................................................................wounded .........32,000... approx.

Every time I look at Tammy Duckworth, senator from Illinois..I see pain. And.......she has handled her loss remarkably well. So many Vets are homeless and unable to function. Or have recovered some, and then lost their strength and ability to function..

The above is a bottom of far more horrific set of circumstances than now... Something like the Iraq war, right here in the United States might signify a bottom unknown in the U.S.A in 150 years. Never underestimate a "BOTTOM" that you do not know about or have felt. Yes, Trump may have hit a "bottom" in your eyes, but terms of ...history?...even U.S.History?....this is no bottom, it is a momentary stop, like a bus stop, or a stop sign on the road..................
.... Few of us have any idea what a bottom is/was. There are a few in Russia that were kids, maybe old enough to think, ( if born in 1936, they would be 82 now) that saw the 20,000,000 deaths that the German Army inflicted during WWII. The Germans over ran their country and killed countless people and committed unreported atrocities that are unfathomable. You read about the carnage in history...but imagine experiencing that in your country and seeing millions die as the enemy overruns and kills, and kills and then kills some more...The fact that Russia won, and Germany lost is a miracle. Think about that for a while when you think about Trump's so called "bottom". Yes, there is so much farther down to go, that it cannot be described. Trump could get us to a bottom that would make the events of the last few weeks look like a picnic.
....What do we do? We fight this in ways that bring us together and expose the evil. And keep fighting this until we win and Congress in both houses is controlled by a Democratic majority. That is what we must do.

A way to unite parents and children..(this will take work and lots of money..yes it's worth it)

1. Consult with experts on choosing a single location...
2. Also consult with representatives of parents, and the parents themselves on which location would be best for them.
......(a single location with outstanding facilities..easy to find)..You know, when there are conventions with thousands of attendees.. or a University location...with great facilities. and outstanding and concerned help of the facility and students there..

3. Announce to the country the exact location of the facilities. (suppose it is a group of hotels..or
military bases or University Campus..Let "all help agencies" know where the 8 to 10 buildings are and
where the children will be located. Then publicize the exact location of these buildings & when children will be transported.

4. Transport the children to the facility. Allow observers and special aids to make sure all is ok.

5. When the children arrive at the facility, then allow parents to check on their children. If there is a
positive, connection of parents with their children, allow the parents to reunite with their children, and
take the children home.

6.
Since the children were stolen from parents without complete identification of the children, the best people in this country will be needed to help match the children with their parents...It will not be easy. But if enough money and care is taken, and the publicity is clear and simple as to where the children are, my guess is 90 to 95 percent of the children can be reunited with their parents.. The key is a single central location. and plenty of help in receiving the children and parents, and help in matching children with parents. These people who do this work, must be people with a background of dealing with this kind of issue, and they must care about children. Not some political appointees from the Trump camp. These workers must want the children to be reconnected with their parents and be willing to do everything possible to help. In the U.S.A finding people like that will be relatively simple..if one looks for them in a professional and complete way. We have a large number of qualified people who would be willing to do this for our country.......
