Some new pictures from both my webcams.  Why?  because the news is getting me down and I need a distraction, this is what I felt like doing.  Sometimes you just have to feel good about yourself.  Hugs

With more immigrant children in detention, HHS cuts funds for other programs — like cancer research

These are children.  Notice in all the pictures I have seen where the children are moved around, they have to walk single file like convicts.   Look at the pictures.  These are little kids living this life.   Kids that reach the age of 18 are transferred to adult detention / jail.   This is on the people of the US, we will be remembered for this in history.   Hugs

https://www.yahoo.com/news/exclusive-immigrant-children-detention-hhs-cuts-funds-programs-like-cancer-research-230259583.html

In a letter sent to Sen. Patty Murray, D.-Wash., and obtained by Yahoo News, HHS Secretary Alex Azar outlined his plan to reallocate up to $266 million in funding for the current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30, to the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program in the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

Nearly $80 million of that money will come from other refugee support programs within ORR, which have seen their needs significantly diminished as the Trump administration makes drastic cuts to the annual refugee numbers. The rest is being taken from other programs, including $16.7 million from Head Start, $5.7 million from the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program and $13.3 million from the National Cancer Institute. Money is also being diverted from programs dedicated to mental and maternal health, women’s shelters and substance abuse. 

According to data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement obtained by Yahoo News, there were 13,312 immigrant children in federal custody as of Wednesday, Sept. 19, with ORR’s existing facilities at 92 percent capacity.

“This is not a story about a historically large surge in arrivals,” said Mark Greenberg, a former official with HHS’s Administration for Children and Families. “The story is fundamentally about a significant slowdown in children being released from care.”

In March, Yahoo News reported that a new policy requiring ORR Director Scott Lloyd to personally approve the release of certain children resulted in many remaining in custody longer, even after a proper sponsor had been approved. Lawyers representing the children and immigration advocates said they were being falsely suspected of gang affiliations. More and more aged out of custody and were transferred to adult detention facilities on their 18th birthdays. In response to a lawsuit by the New York Civil Liberties Union, a New York federal judge in June determined that Lloyd had violated the federal Administrative Procedure Act by enacting the policy almost immediately upon being sworn in as director, “with no record demonstrating the need for change,” and ordered him to halt it.

Disgraceful racism, this is the republican party ** the claim of racism of this person has not been clearly proven and is in debate. Please read the comments before deciding. **

The votes so far.

Filed under: My Life and Rants, Pictures, Questions — Tags: , , — Scottie @ 10:30

Thanks to everyone who voted.  I don’t think any of the pictures were very good, but you guys did try to find something in them.  Here are the vote totals.  

Miles voted for # 0                              Colonialist Voted for # 14 

Jim voted for # 0 , 14                           Nan voted for # 3 , 8

Randy voted for # 2                             Esme voted for # 6, 3, 4

So by my math that is 2 votes for # 0, 2 votes for # 14, 2 votes for # 3, and one vote for a few others. 

So there was no clear winner.  The three most liked were:

Please let me know what you think would be the best thing to do.  Should I pick one of these, leave the one I put up yesterday, or take a new better one.   Be well.  Hugs

OK that horrible time again when I need a new avatar picture.

Filed under: Funny Stuff, My Life and Rants, opinion, Pictures, Questions — Scottie @ 11:22

OK I know it is a pain , and painful to do, but I need to update my avatar picture.  I took two sets for you to look at.  I never can tell what pictures look good of my self.   I forgot to set the lights for the camera, dropped both cameras on the floor and had to rest all the settings.  I seem out of focus, but you guys decide.  By the way I forgot to reset the camera on the first set to show the proper view relationship.  In other words my left is right on some.   I think.  Hugs

Trying to learn

Filed under: Animals, My Life and Rants, Pictures — Scottie @ 16:49

I just viewed some grand photos on Arks blog at https://attaleuntold.wordpress.com/2017/11/28/watch-the-birdy-25/ and I thought I would see what I could get taking pictures of the two cats , who were in the living room being lazy.  Some are in shadow without flash ( the dark ones ) some are with flash ( the really bright ones ) and some are in sun without flash.   So I present to all of you my two babies, Milo ( he ruffled his fur as I pointed the camera at him ) on the chair and Odis ( he has black spots on his nose called nose freckles by some ) on the couch staring out the window.   Hugs
