I will spare you any further pictures or commentary on the tragedy unfolding on the border with Mexico. There is enough of it available from all media sources. I will, however, devote a few words to the cause of the situation, the P.O.S. in the White House.
Some may feel that the strong language and tactics that opponents of the Trump administration are starting to use amount to lowering themselves to the abysmal level which is the daily operating mode of Trump and his believers. Some would prefer to practice greater civility in their criticism. I feel that when you engage with dirty street fighters who use dishonest and unethical methods, you are going to lose unless you fight them on their terms. No more "Mister Nice Guy." The ends, when noble, justify the means when defeat is the alternative. This posting reflects that position.
They put limits on who could vote and made the election of Senators (since changed) and of the President indirect processes. How valid are their reasons today? Did they possess a wisdom which should have transcended the years, but did not? Think about it.

This must be done at the ballot box by Americans voting for Democratic candidates and those rare Republicans willing to denounce the P.O.S. in the White House for his giving comfort to murderous despots and kidnapping innocent children to use as bargaining chips in accomplishing his juvenile, simplistic fantasies for solving problems.
New York AG Acts Against the P.O.S. : Last week, Bloomberg Opinion posted an online piece by Francis Wilkinson dealing with the New York State Attorney General’s case being brought against the Trump Foundation. The article suggests this is probably the route that Special Counsel Mueller will follow in his investigation. (I predict that either or both of these processes will lead to the impeachment, ultimate conviction and exile of the President.) Read the entire posting by CLICKING RIGHT HERE.

(The TV and radio stations stealthily being acquired by the Sinclair Group are just as bad. Beware of them. They slyly slip their evil messages into otherwise normal broadcasting. The CBS TV outlet in West Palm Beach is one of them.)
To know the enemy, one must watch Fox News. Grit your teeth and watch Hannity and Coulter. They are more than the voices of the opposition. They are the enemy, your enemy, America’s enemy, the enemies of truth and decency.
Evangelical Christians and Orthodox Jews, however, have been among his most ardent supporters and therefore must look deeply into their own personal beliefs and try to view a lifetime of what Donald Trump has said and done in the light of those beliefs. A square peg cannot be fit into a round hole.
Economy ain’t Economy Anymore
Most passengers who fly do so in the what airlines call the Economy Class. Of course, there are always those willing to fly First Class or Business Class, God bless them, and the airlines love them. But the bread and butter passengers still are the ones in the Economy Class seats.
