Right after tRump caved “Trump To Meet Irish PM At Airport, Not Trump Hotel”

Filed under: News, Political — Scottie @ 21:40

Clearly the rest of the world is done with tRump and sadly the US will suffer.  It is one thing to see tRump dimminshed on the world stage but another to realize he has sunk the US to his low.  How many generations will we have to climb to get back the respect we once had?   Hugs

DHS Preps To Siphon $232M From TSA For Border Ops

DHS Preps To Siphon $232M From TSA For Border Ops

NBC News reports:

The Department of Homeland Security is requesting $232 million from the Transportation Security Administration to fund border operations in the event that Congress does not agree to fund $1.1 billion of its funding request, according to documents of a contingency plan obtained by NBC News.

Other components of DHS, which includes the Federal Emergency Management Administration, have also been asked to provide a portion of their overall budget to contribute to the $1.1 billion goal, according to the documents.

Internal emails and a PowerPoint presentation at the Transportation Security Administration last week outlined a plan on how the agency would fund a “tax” its parent agency may levy upon it.

The chants were disturbing. Trump’s response to them was even worse.

A point on the 16 year old who died in Border Patrol custody

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Fascism, Harm, Hate, Health, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 10:02

I found out this morning that the boy had been sick for at least a week and died in a border patrol station for the following reasons.  This is a crisis of tRump’s own making and he can fix it with out extra money by following the laws and returning to policies he changed.   The boy was at a border station because the BP were not following the law to take him to an approved facility with in 72 hours of detention.  They were instead shuffling him from station to station.   Illegally.  The boy died in the commission of a crime against him!   In most states that makes the punishment for the crime much more severe.   I wonder how many others they are shuffling around instead of placing them in facilities?  They are making the conditions much worse than they need to be.   Now the boy was sick for at least a week.  He was seen by a medical practitioner, not a doctor.   He was diagnosed with the flu and shuffled around again instead of being taken to the hospital.   Any competent person can tell you the flu can be deadly if not treated correctly and promptly.  In the ICU I worked we dealt with many flu cases and yes some died.  Instead they left the boy in unacceptable conditions sleeping on the floor, and one report said the ground.  They did not care.  They simply do not see these children and adults as humans, as people.  They have made them so much the other that their conditions do not matter.   We seriously need to do something here people.  History has shown us where this goes from here if continued!   History doesn’t look on those who do these actions well.   Hugs

A Methodist Pastor Is Brilliantly Calling Out the “Pro-Life” Crowd’s Hypocrisy

A Methodist Pastor Is Brilliantly Calling Out the “Pro-Life” Crowd’s Hypocrisy

 

“The unborn” are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage tha..See More

You can see why that statement was so powerful. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the Christian Right’s hypocrisy about abortion: They get to hoist up the “pro-life” banner while avoiding all the political work that goes into making actual people’s lives better. They get to pretend to have the moral high ground while directly causing others to suffer. And here was a Christian pastor saying what secular liberals and other progressive religious groups have been saying for years.

last Wednesday

If Alabama politicians and preachers really cared about preventing abortion, we’d have comprehensive, medically accurate sex education in schools. This new bill criminalizing abortion is entirely about controlling sexual behavior and taking away bodily autonomy.

A few years ago, some conservative clergy proposed a resolution in our local denominational body about defunding Planned Parenthood. The resolution was tabled until we could talk through it. I offered to meet with itSee More 

As he says, the authors weren’t interested in his thoughts. They certainly didn’t care about reducing the number of abortions.

The fact is, if comprehensive sex education and free/easy access to birth control made elective abortions almost entirely disappear, pro-life zealots would still whine about the existence of Planned Parenthood.

They aren’t interested in lowering abortion rates. They only care about controlling women’s bodies. They’ll punish them for having sex (in the case of Alabama, even when the women didn’t want it) or they’ll punish them for not wanting to raise a child in certain conditions.

The entire “pro-life” movement hinges on getting a whole bunch of people obsessed with something that doesn’t exist to the point where reasoning with them is all but impossible. It’s the same thing religious leaders do with God.

They do not care. Personhood doesn’t apply to women.
