I have spent my entire life working at this nursery. I do not have an answer to the migration/ immigration issue in our country. If many senates and congresses can’t solve these issues, I certainly can’t.
But what is glaringly obvious to me is the utter lack of humanity our president has right now for us and for others who share this planet with us. It wasn’t that way four years ago, ten years ago, thirty years ago. It started with tRUMP’s election campaign and has continued unabated ever since. I think presidents who have passed before us would be entirely appalled and disgusted at what we have become. Republicans and Democrats alike in previous administrations would have never have stooped to such a low moral standing as we witness in daily news reports having to do with the actions of the current pathetic administration.
I believe our country is in the worst moral position ever as far as I can remember, and it’s going to take a lot of time and the efforts of many many people to undo the damage that tRUMP has done to us as a country and as a people.
I was absolutely disgusted seeing pictures of ragged people getting tear gassed as they ran away from American made home grown racism on our southern border this week. Mothers carrying diaper-clad babies running for their lives away from our “tough and rugged men of the border patrol.” I would love to see how tough they are when confronted by people armed like they are. I bet they would run like crying children- what a bunch of assholes. See poor people with babies from atop razor wire 20’ fencing- shoot them with tear gas, of course! Playground bullies with tRUMP as their leader. If you object to what I said above, sorry- NOT.
Is this the very best that we as a nation can muster up as a welcome mat for the most depressed, desperate, and scared people in the world??? Tear gas, bullets, razor wire, soldiers??? Fighting mothers, babies, teenagers? Who are we?
Here is our cowardly lying president, once again, fostering, nurturing, culturing human misery to further his race baiting tactic to stoke the flames of racism so his small-minded supporters can chant “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!” Foam frothing in the corners of their mouths. I’m disgusted. You need to be too. You aren’t? If this does not anger you then maybe it’s time to pay close attention to the news- ANYTHING EXCEPT FOX NEWS...maybe even consult the Bible at this time of the year. Jesus was a refugee also. Consult your religion if you need to. I’m not religious but on this issue, don’t need to be. Intelligent compassionate people don’t treat others poorly like tRUMP does all the time.
tRUMP knew for months that these masses were coming. We as a country and he as a “leader” had time to come up with a plan. Where are the tent cities that other countries provide when these things happen? Where is the food, medicine, doctors, shelter, asylum processing centers, busses to take them home if they don’t qualify?
Absent true cerebral functioning, the best tRUMP can muster up is soldiers, tear gas, razor wire, bullets. My kid could do better than this- he is 14yo. He could have done better at three years old. Trump and his fellow pathetic humans were not raised by their mothers properly. My kid was raised well, he would never in a thousand years treat people less fortunate than us like that person in the White House treated those people. SHAME! Shame on him but above all, shame on us for allowing it!
By sending troops, authorizing lethal force (ACTUAL BULLETS!!!), laying out razor wire, shooting them with tear gas, our coward president has shown that he is not capable of showing the emotions required by us as a nation to lead us, to lead the world, to show us as a country how to treat our neighbors.
When I discuss this with other people, it’s really surprising how many of them don’t care at all. Maybe I shouldn’t care either. But I can’t help it! They say “who is going to pay for the doctors, tents, food?” as if that’s the more important issue, a concern that’s valid but shallow. Bill the country of origin! United Nations funds, unicef! We pay a lot of money into world crisis organizations , time it came back to us. Worry about the goddamn money LATER, care for those poor people first!
Failing at the act of human compassion in his treatment of these poor human beings, he once again (how many times is this now?) also fails as a man, as a leader, and as our president. tRUMP and his fellow asshole republican cowards represent the very lowest form of humanity- vote them to the curb in 2020.
This is a really talented group- lots of strange and interesting songs. The gift of compassion for others is what we as a country find it hard to show for others recently.
Our country treats Latin American asylum seekers like animals. This little girl died of neglect under the watchful eye of the border patrol. Her father is distraught, as we all would be. I figure that if you put a human being in jail, then you as a society are responsible for the health, safety, and well-being of that prisoner. This comes on the heels of the courageous border patrol tear-gassing helpless mothers and children.
The boy died of the flu
Racist tRUMP takes this opportunity to politicize the deaths and blame them on left wing democrats. What a despicable person he is.
