The real problem

Here’s the real problem:

A Honduran woman says US border officials snatched her infant child while she was breastfeeding her at a detention centre in southern Texas.

Natalia Cornelio, an attorney with the Texas Civil Rights Project, told CNN the unnamed woman claimed in an interview that authorities had taken her daughter while the family was in custody. 

The woman had been detained under the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy to illegal migrants or asylum seekers caught crossing the border between Mexico and the United States.

Since the strategy was introduced in May, anyone found crossing the border unauthorised faces federal charges and are likely to be separated from any children they travelled with. 

The feckless runts that make up this administration should be pariahs when this reign of terror is over. They should never be seen in public again and banned to a leper colony in some god forsaken part of the world.


The friend to our enemies

This administration is giddy for murderous dictators, separates children from their parents and puts them in cages and contains the most corrupt feckless runts that we’ve seen in generations.

And its drooling supporters think it’s great because “We’re America, bitch.”

Explain to me again why I should try to understand their point of view.

Space age love song

Just scanning videos this morning, and saw this and thought, “God, those guys are old.”

Because I remember the time I saw them in concert, and they looked like this:

But that was the ’80s.

Then I realized, I was older then than they were. Which means I’m older now than they are.

God, I’m old.

But at least I have my hair.

Allies of evil … and evil

You would think this was the most corrupt thing to happen this week. You would be wrong:

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s daughter and son-in-law, brought in at least $82 million in outside income while serving as senior White House advisers during 2017, according to financial disclosure forms released Monday.

Trump earned $3.9 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington and more than $2 million in severance from the Trump Organization, while Kushner reported over $5 million in income from Quail Ridge, a Kushner Cos. apartment complex acquired last year in Plainsboro, N.J.

The filings show how the couple are collecting immense sums from other enterprises while serving in the White House, an extraordinary income flow that ethics experts have warned could create potential conflicts of interests.

Grifters gotta grift. Apparently this is OK. But don’t you dare call her feckless.
