It is hard for me to be civil and remain upbeat these days. Hypocrisy is not a bug to a republican, it is the feature. Republicans believe in winning at any cost, so now must the dems.

In 2018 children are still being killed in the U.S. because they may be gay. Homophobia must be stopped

The Los Angeles Timesreports:

Anthony Avalos came out as gay in recent weeks, and authorities are now investigating whether homophobia played a role in the death of the 10-year-old Lancaster boy, a county official said. Anthony was found mortally wounded at his home last week with severe head injuries and cigarette burns covering his body.

While there have been no criminal charges in the case, Cagle says the mother’s story claiming Anthony fell and hurt his head does not pass muster. “He had a severe head injury consistent with a brain bleed, plus bruises and abrasions all about his body,” said Cagle. ” All that indicates to me that that’s non-accidental.”

RELATED: Earlier this month a California man received thedeath penalty for the gruesome torture death of an eight year old boy that the man and his mother reportedly believed to be gay. The mother was sentenced to life in prison.

Civil rights attorney Jennifer Harbury says she obtained audio of children who were reportedly held in a CBP detention facility and can be heard crying for their parents.

BREAKING: New audio of immigrant children crying and begging for their parents, right after they’ve been separated. This is absolutely heartbreaking, but must be shared with the world. It was obtained from inside one of Trump’s child prisons by @ProPublica. #KeepFamiliesTogether

(5) Islam – Behind the Veil – YouTube

Filed under: Children, Facts, Gender, Harm, Political, Questions, Reason, Religion, Sad — Scottie @ 13:09

This is graphic and horrifying because it shows the plight of women under fundamentalism Islam.  Make no mistake there are many religions where men feel they are so much better than women and have the right to rule them as they see fit.  IF the christian religions could get away with it they would also treat women in the most horrible ways.  We can see the way females are minimized in the Jewish religion and in the bible where it says women should be silent.  A great racket for men, to write the book that promotes them as superior so they can then point to the book and claim those superior rights.  Hugs

Late night / early AM bad decisions.

Filed under: Animals, Funny Stuff, Ideas, My Life and Rants, opinion, Sad, style — Scottie @ 15:58

Last night I stayed up really late talking with a friend.   Then after they went home I stayed up even later.   About 2 AM after falling asleep in my office, I stumbled off to bedroom.  When I got there I decided for some reason it would be a great idea to get the trimmers up and shave and trim my beard.   Nothing good comes when you decided to do something at 2 AM after a long day.   So then after thinking wrongly that I had done a grand wonderful thing, I went to go to bed and Milo stole my pillow.   Oh well I lost all way round.  🙂   Hugs

This haunts me. I don’t have the solution, but I damn well know we have to find one. Not just for this child, but for all the children.

Son had 36 bruises; mom quoted Bible as defense

Filed under: Children, Criminal, Dealing With Abuse, Harm, Health, News, Questions, Religion, Sad — Scottie @ 13:49

I have often opposed these religious freedom laws that let parents neglect, starve, harm,  refuse medical treatment, and in some even kill their children all in the name of their religion.  I have mentioned that had these laws been around when I was growing up the ones who abused me could have used them.  They wouldn’t have been forced to move three times in six months and keep me out of school for those months.  They could have proudly stood their ground and said they were beating me senseless to save my soul.   I feel so angry for those children suffering because of a caregiver’s delusion that they will get into heaven. I read one “parent” say that they did not mind their young son dying when they refused to get him medical care because they knew he was in heaven with their god.   A state politician said that  government had no right to interfere with a parent’s right to insure that their children go to heaven even if it brings harm to the child as that was god’s will.  Sick.   Hugs

Indiana woman cites the state’s religious freedom law as defense in felony child abuse case.

Source: Son had 36 bruises; mom quoted Bible as defense

excerpts below:

Two days later, a teacher patted the boy on the back and saw him flinch, according to court records. The teacher saw red welts on the boy and reported the observations to police and child welfare officials.

A doctor at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health found 36 bruises across the boy’s back, thigh and left arm. Three photographs submitted to the court show deep purple lines striping the boy’s back and several welts on his arm. The boy has one curved bruise on his cheek in the shape of a hook on a coat hanger.

A doctor counted 36 bruises on Kin Park Thaing's 7-year-old

In 2008, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled 3-1 to overturn the felony conviction of Sophia Willis, who used a belt or an electrical cord to discipline her 11-year-old son. (The mom said belt, the son said cord; the court ruled it did not matter.)

The justices in that decision gave parents wide latitude in determining what is reasonable discipline for their children. Hitting kids with a belt or an electrical cord is not much different from using a coat hanger, said Jennifer Drobac, professor at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, who has taught the Willis decision in classes on juvenile law.

Come Home (Cardinal Pell) by Tim Minchin (with lyrics) – YouTube

Filed under: Children, Dealing With Abuse, Harm, Health, Sad — Scottie @ 19:10

I can’t stop crying even after I heard this song many times.  It seems to never go away.   Even on the good days it is there and at night it comes unexpected and you spend a night without sleeping, again.    Ron just came in and before I could turn all the way away from him, grabbed me and turned me around demanding to know why I was crying.  All I could stammer was “that song” while pointing at my screen.   He was at a loss as to what to say.   It is hard for them, those who love us.   For my friends, I won’t name you, but you know who you are who suffer also.   Many hugs.

Unfiltered Voices From Donald Trump’s Crowds | The New York Times – YouTube

This is sick!   It is horrible that this is happening at a rally for a person running for the highest office in the land!   It is nationalizing gone riot.  It shows a complete lack of education, a complete lack of reason.   One man at the end says of Trump “this is the last chance…to preserve the culture I grew up in”.   We all know that that means.   A time when white people had all the rights, minorities were mostly never heard from, no one spoke anything but the white people’s english, when the white man basically ruled.   When it was fine and ok to call people slurs, and there was no rights for anyone who was not white.   Sad these people want those days back again.  I know a lady who is very bigoted and she goes crazy if she hears people talking in a language not english.  She can’t understand it, and so it must be bad and forbidden.   She gets very angry and insists that people stop talking like that and speak only english, and she is not even in the conversation.  She just overhears it in a line or in a store and she gets all indignant.   She can’t see it takes education and skills to be able to bilingual and be able to speak in different languages.  Again the video is a very sad view of what america has become and what is so scary about Trump supporters.  A trump presidency MUST not happen.   Hugs
