A Week Which Will "Live In Infamy"
But I’ve vented enough. Click here to read Paul Krugman’s recent New York Times column. And click here to read Michael Gerson’s recent Washington Post column. Finally, read Thomas Friedman’s recent New York Times column by clicking here. . They say things better than I can. And use more polite language.
Immigrants Seeking Asylum Separated from Children
children being taken from their parents involved in attempts to seek asylum by entering the United States? Does it bother you the way these people are being treated? To some extent it probably does, and you sympathize with them. Great! But how different is your attitude from that of the “nice” Germans who didn’t like what Hitler was doing in the thirties to Jews, but stood by doing nothing, looking in another direction. We are better than that and MUST act accordingly, despite the lies about what is going on coming from the mouth of the P.O.S. in the White House.
(What would be your attitude if a boatload of illegal immigrants seeking asylum attempted to land on our shores today? The steamship St. Louis was turned back in 1940 and many of its passengers ultimately died in concentration camps.)
We need a humane, intelligent examination and revision of our immigration laws, including a better definition of asylum, not the heavy-handed approach of the P.O.S. in the White House, the Attorney General and some of the P. O. S.’s in Congress. And of course, an immediate stop to the separation of children from parents until this issue is resolved. Whether laws should be enforced 'to the letter" is up to the government. Contrary to earlier administrations, our government has adopted a "zero tolerance" policy. P.O.S. Trump and P.O.S. Sessions can change that by just saying so. Instead, they blame it on the Democrats.
And while on this subject, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, another P.O.S., in supporting the strict enforcement of laws resulting in children of immigrants seeking asylum being separated from their parents, recently referred to the Bible (Romans 13) to a group of believers.
Our Founding Fathers Distrusted Democracy!
terror and ultimately, a Napoleonic dictatorship. Yes, to our “Founding Fathers,” democracy could be very dangerous.
The country was very lucky in having Andrew Jackson as its seventh President. Although he had his "warts," still he was a war hero, involved in government for years and a man of principal. Undeniably, the "gullible, unsophisticated and ignorant" voters who put him into office were not unlike the "gullible, unsophisicated and ignorant" voters who put the totally inexperienced and unprincipaled Donald Trump into office in 2016. The comparison ends there, however. Trump is neither anti-establishment nor pro-people. He's just pro-Trump, a narcissistic P.O.S.
If the electorate had not been expanded by the States, we probably would have had John Quincy Adams re-elected in 1828, and gotten Henry Clay and John Calhoun, both Whigs … aghast at Jackson’s neo-Jeffersonian democratic tendencies ... as subsequent Presidents.
