Let’s see if I can even wrap my brain around these things that are floating around the politisphere.
The president has commissioned 5 new child detention centers. Private of course. So now there is a money trail for what’s going on.
The US is separating young children from their parents at the border. Now let’s be clear that these are illegal immigrants, and the illegality is part of the asylum process. The adults are sent to jail; children can’t go to jail so they go someplace else. But we are still pulling families apart. It’s a shame. Have we done it in the past? You betcha. Doesn’t mean we should do it now. The past is not our destiny. We can choose to do something different.
We wtihdrew from the UN’s Human Rights Council. Withdrew. What are we hiding or embarrassed about?
But apparently we will have a 6th branch of the military. The other 5 are Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. Number 6 would be the space force. My gawd, really? As the meme says, who needs health care (or an infrastructure, or good public transportation or free education) when we can have a space force? *sigh*
You know, it’s not like I follow politics all that closely. It’s just things like this that keep coming up again and again. Fred reads them off the internet. My Facebook feed is full of pro-Trump propaganda and liberal rebuttals. The news covers it. I can’t get away from it..
So here I am, worked up and no idea what to do. I’m pretty sure I’ll figure it out and then, look out.
