Snopes: Yep Tent for Kids Coming to Texas

Snopes is all over the Tents for Kids story. The right wing can't deny this story

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/is-trump-putting-children-tent-cities/

Republicans Are Emotionally Torturing Children - Shout it from the roof tops

Enough said.

❤️ A Heartfelt Plea to Fathers and Mothers ❤️

The following writing ignited my loving heart and freed me from the simmering hate we are being invited to feel at the hands of hateful policies and people.

I do not want to hate. I do not want my children and grandchildren to hate. I REFUSE to hate!

This Raja Yoga lecture has helped keep my heart chakra healthy as well.
http://www.anandawashington.org/swami-talks/

I hope the following helps relieve you of the same negative feelings. If we allow hate, we will lose. All the Great Ones have taught this principle.

-------------------------
First, the GOOD NEWS

Racial diversity, even in many rural areas, has reached an important and critical tipping point:

Racial diversity is now self-sustainable through births and not dependant on immigration.

This writing is an invitation to NOT hate the xenophobic racist bigoted haters among us, but to learn how to win this war for decency and dignity. Our fathers, uncles, brothers, and grandfathers died to uphold decency and love, not hate.

It is so easy to justify hatred. We will lose if we become haters, too.

It is easy to slide down the emotional pole into a pool of hate for the hateful bigots; however, I think we are better than that. We can refuse their taunting invitations to hate and dispise the rascist xenophobes in our amidst, even at the helm of our ship, no matter how hateful their words and deeds are.

How? How do we NOT hate the hateful?

Perhaps we can overcome hating by keeping our "eye on the prize"

The prize? Integrated, helpful communities committed to what is unselfish and most importantly:

1. Providing safety, enrichment, education, and loving examples for all children.

2. Providing basic needs, without judgement, for those who cannot provide for themselves.

3. Creating a truly representative governance devoid of self-promotion and corruption.

4. Having laws that eliminate all financial incentives for the sociopathic greedy, similar to the tax code of the 1950s and 1960s.


In short, our biggest struggle today is to find Love in our own hearts and lead with Love.

We can love the hater while being incensed with their behavior. We can use the incensed energy to effect change. We must win the little battles by having the courage to speak up in the face of injustice.

Courage.

If we lose this first struggle within our own hearts, we will lose the battles in today's war on "all that is good"

If we hate, we contribute to the devolution and destruction of our societies and even the planet.

Understanding the hateful is a necessity if we are to craft responses to their bigoted delusions.

Without Love, we will be loathe to learn about and understand haters, and feel justified to become a hater, too.

Here is a concise insight into the 6 Roots of Racism:

A Sinful Child MUST Be Broken - How Trump's Zealot Followers Think

We need to understand that abusing children is normal to these rural, uneducated, religious zealots that vote en masse for whatever has a GOP Acronym attached.

These voters were beaten and abused in the name of religion. Their parents and grandparents were beaten and abused. Hell, there are books on Amazon teaching how to abuse and terrify their very own flesh and blood into submission to the adults will. Abuse is encouraged and sanction d by religious leaders.

I suspect the Huckabee clan has some physical abuse threaded throughout their family tapestry.

It's legal to shame and abuse kids in schools in 19 states. My own grand daughter was literally traumatized in 1st grade at the new local Charter School in 2003. She witnessed another child being hurt by her teacher! Oddly, her 1st grade class had to memorize all things Egypt, too. Masonic? We whipped her out of there that same day, but it was months before she stopped throwing a fit before school drop off. She's a 4.0 university student. Grandparent has to brag ☺️

IS IT ANY WONDER THAT SESSIONS, MILLER, PENCE, AND OTHERS ARE OK WITH THE SHOPS OF HORROR BEING FILLED WITH BABIES, TODDLERS, AND ALL AGED KIDS in Texas.

In the minds of religious fundamentalists, Kids are in the same class as puppies -- In great need of physical and emotional pain to be "brought up right."

Why are we so surprised by the callousness being exhibited?

The rest of us have to stand up and push back on this issue.

This author has helped millions of abused-in-the-name-of-God kids heal.

THIS INFORMATION HELPS US UNDERSTAND THE GLAZED OVER, HATEFILLED SO-called deplorables. Most have had deplorable lives. Those angry screaming GOP women? Also suppressed into patriarchal submission, some even abused. They pay abuse forward.

The 1% exploits the deplorables Stockholm Syndrome minds.

No health care? God's will. Shoulda.....

You hear the words "should and shouldn't" used a lot by fundamentalists....and politicians justifying inhumane policies.

Shouldn't have crossed the border........

God I am so angry!

There are unnecessarily newly orphaned children crying in the desert!


Maybe the fundies are trying to piss off God enough to have Him drop in for a long chat. Careful what you pray for inhumane fundies.

Read and weep.

Southwest Key, the non-profit, Walmart warehouser of immigrant children ripped from the arms of their parents failed to properly process background checks for caretakers....repeatedly.

Texas has all the dirt on all the Southwest Key youth immigration detention centers online. You can read them for yourselves. The Texas site is pretty easy to use. The link takes you to the Southwest Key Texas facilities.

Click on the link below to see all of Southwest Key facilities violations and share this with people you know. I don't think most understand how bad this is.

The violations are visible at the bottom of each centers opening page. You will see the list with actual numbers of HIGH, MED/HIGH, MEDIUM, etc. violations. (numbers and words are in blue)

Click on the words HIGH, MED/HIGH, etc. to read the violations.

I focused on Cameron County because that is where the now famous, empty Walmart Casa Padre center is located. There are several other Southwest Key youth facilities in Cameron County, Texas.

Note that Southwest laid off 1,000 workers last year!

Did they move kids to make room for the new zero tolerance policy influx?

The violations include

failing to comply with backgrounds checks
filthy bathrooms
unlocked medication cabinets
unsupervised children
lots of incomplete/inadequate record keeping & reporting to parents
failure to medicate
unknown weapons...

The list is long.


The violations listings are for the years 2015 - Present.

Where are the freaking journalists? This is a classic journalism assignment. Facts, figures, empirical all online.

The violations are there, listed for each facility.

SHOUT THEM FROM THE ROOFTOPS.

These kids are endangered.

The top 3 Southwest Key officers have greatly increased their salaries from 2015-Present, as well. Lots of $$$ in non-profits.

The CEO earns over $740,000 a year.

WTH! Logged me out while creating an investigative thread. A bug?

Why does this site log me out while compiling a thread.

Is it just me?

Guess I will compile elsewhere and copy paste here. An hour of work gone. Sigh

A New Law Banning Narcissists from Politics.

It took decades to unravel the damage a narcissistic body politic did to the concept of compassionate conservatism. It was only by realizing that it never existed, were new political science books written.

The problem of unjust societies were solved by a simple test. A high score for narcissim banned people from politics and upper management of corporations,

A minimum score for empathy was also required.

In this manner, even apathetic, low voter turn out didn't put governance in the hands of zealots and/or despots.

Life was blandly uneventful, dependably underwhelming, monotonous but safely dignified.

Human life was valued, children the recipients of most tax dollars as defense was less needed.

Not utopia, not dystopia. Just ordinary, made magnificent by the newly freed imaginations of its people whose avocations were nurtured from birth.

Art permeated the air.

We can dream instead of scream.
