An incredible read of what happened to an American citizen in the fascist US today

  1. Hi Scottie;
    I have heard that airplane travel, especially long travel, is often a stressful, tiring process. What I read here was a lot of barely disguised arrogance and self-importance from the so-called authorities. Mr. Rashid brings a very important point: these men and women of Customs and Border Security are there to protect American citizens and visitors. It’s not a place for bigots and bullies, it’s too serious a job for such antics. So, what I have to wonder is what type of screening and what type of training and oversight are these folks given?

    • Also, Scottie;
      Have you watched any of the talk shows where this South Bend, IN, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has had the chance to speak? I have really found his ideas interesting. He seems really down to earth.

      • Hello Randy. Mayor Pete! He is all over every political podcast and talk so I watch. He was even in Bill Maher’s show. Yes he is smart, good looking, good ideas, accomplished, military veteran, and he can speak with whole sentences without repeating bigly, huge, or sad. I am waiting to see how the midwest treats him in the primaries. The Joe my god website I often post from loves him. I will tell you the troll farm is up and running hard to try to stir up shit. So far I like the idea of a Warren / Harris ticket or a Warren / Mayor Pete ticket. Hugs

        • Hi Scottie;
          Is it fair to characterize the run for president as closer to a marathon than a sprint? If so, it does seem like Mayor Pete is everywhere. Can he maintain this? Or, do you think that his strategy is to allow time for his differences from the “normal” candidate to be argued and sniped at long before “surprise” shocks can come in the late stages?

          • Hello Randy. I tend to think of running for president as the same as a circus and carnival mixed. The more running the more tents to see. Every campaign needs to draw as many people into their tent as possible, which means ever louder barkers at the entrance and more wild acts in side the tent.
            I think with a field this large candidates have to quickly define themselves before the others do it to them. Remember the Republican primaries in 2016 tRump defined his opponents and the insulting names stuck. So the many Democrats want to get the image they prefer of themself in the minds of of the voters. That way they can better handle the shocks which will come. News this morning is frustrating, they are letting the White house spout off lies and distortions without any push back. News hosts seem fearful of pushing back on the White House now. Hugs

    • Good morning randy. Sadly these stories do not get reported. These jobs with control over people often attract bullies and assholes and the fact is they do not pay much. That combination leads to some real jerks thinking they are “tough guys” and have “power”. Training is minimal. Not all are this way, but many are. Hope you’re having a good weekend. This morning is Sunday news shows. Bet it will be all about the Barr report again today. Hugs

    • Hello Single Parent. Yes it is clear fascism in our country , bigotry at the highest levels of our government. It is clear that CBP have been given the order to make the lives of brown people as hard as possible and maybe they will “know their place”. Hugs

      • The UK had pro Brexit Demos yesterday where effigies where pulled around with ropes around necks. The Far Right is now openly demonstrating. It’s complete madness.

        • Hello Single Parent. Yes the hate is on full display. This weekend’s news shows was full of rabid tRump supporters clearly lying to advance the party line. The hate for “those brown people from the south” was in full scream mode. I am so tired of tolerance from the left to these assholes and the expecting of civil norms from the right. It is not going to happen. I am not interested in working with people who are deplorable human beings. Hugs

          • You are spot on. The time is coming when the good folk and the decent politicians have to stand up.

            • Hello Single Parent. Hopefully we can do it before all is lost. The parallel to the rise of Hitler and the Nazi’s is stunning when you look at the history in comparing to what we are living in today world wide, especially in the US. Hugs
