More Tears of Shame …

Jill Dennison has penned an excellent post describing the tragedy surrounding the 2300 children brought across the southern U.S. border by illegal immigrants and ripped from their families. This tragedy was not brought to an end by Trump’s executive order earlier this week, and Jill is asking her American readers to stand up and be counted in the upcoming November elections. Amen!

Filosofa's Word

Trump signed an executive order earlier this week that did … nothing.  Nonetheless, that didn’t stop him from preening and patting himself on the back.  While thousands of children remain terrified and separated from their parents, held in old warehouses, tent cities, and wherever the U.S. government can find room to stow them.

Administration officials admit that there is no immediate plan to reunite these children with their families.  Melania Trump visits them wearing a jacket that says, “I don’t care, do U?”  Fox television host Brian Kilmeade says we should not be concerned because “These aren’t our kids … it’s not like he is doing this to the people of Idaho or, uh, or, uh, Texas. These are people from another country.” Members of Congress, congressional candidates, and the press have been denied entry to tour the facilities.  A senator was escorted from the premises by police…

  1. You’re so right, John. I always fact check before posting on my social network pages and refrain from using inflammatory rhetoric. In fact, I won’t tolerate disrespect on my posts. I’ve deleted many comments that resorted to name-calling. It’s futile and self-denigrating to respond by lowering one’s standards and discarding morality. I do, however, admit to calling Trump a bigot and tyrant (or wannabe king) on some blogs, when it was aligned with the nature of the post and I was preaching to choir 🙂 Venting is critical to clarifying one’s thoughts and enabling positive action, but it must be done among allies. Hugs, Bro! ❤️

  2. I know I keep saying this John, but the two most influential tools we have are our votes and our thoughts. We need to stay abreast of Trumps treachery while not falling victim to the fear he hopes to instill. We need to put all of our energy into envisioning positive change, and then direct that energy at ousting the GOP with our votes in November. We can and we will dethrone the wannabe king.

    1. I’m confident that you guys will toss out the GOP in November, Tina. We just need to rally around a positive leader and dial down the horrible rhetoric. Demonizing Trump and Sarah Sanders, etc., will just drive disenchanted Republicans right back into Trump’s arms. Thanks, Sis! Hugs!
