Is there any way the Dems can hold up a SC nominee at least until after the mid-terms?

"Mamas hear their babies cry at night" - Elizabeth Warren

Any mother knows that this is absolutely true.

I am a public official, have been for many years.

When I make a decision that people don't like, I hear from them...by phone at home, email, at the grocery store, at church, at my gas station. Sometimes people are civil, sometimes they're not. The fact is that these people pay my salary and I am ultimately accountable to them. I know that, I respect that and, even when I don't like it, I take it. It comes with the territory. If these people can't take it, they should find another line of work.

On NHPR today - Doctor interviewed

who has visited foster homes of small migrant children...these kids are in awful shape and the foster parents don't speak spanish. Try to find this and listen to it. On my station it was a 4 pm and it was PRX Reveal.

Here is the link that I found: https://www.revealnews.org/

Question:

Exactly when did the US start to separate small children from their families at the border? I thought it was in May when Sessions instituted "zero tolerance". But NHPR interviewed the director of a Maryland facility today who said that they usually had handled older, unaccompanied kids but in January, they began to see much younger children being sent to their facility. Does this mean that the government has been separating families for much longer than they have been telling us? If so, then there are many more than 2300 kids lost. What am I missing here?

PSA for today...

Dip a paper towel or cotton in a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water and hold it on a bug bite or a rash and it takes the itch and sting away. It really works!

Other than that, I really don't care, do u?

FLOTUS at Texas border? Msnbc. n/t

She already knew he was a bad man

now she's afraid that he will take her away from her parents.

I'm not talking about immigrants. I am referring to my 5 year old grand daughter. This President has succeeded in making himself the stuff of nightmares for all children.

The ultimate sacrifice....

cancelling the Congressional Picnic.

My 5 year old grandaughter: "Trump is just like Yertle the Turtle"

Out of the mouths of babes...

Yertle the Turtle”

The eponymous story revolves around Yertle the Turtle, the king of the pond. Dissatisfied with the stone that serves as his throne, he commands the other turtles to stack themselves beneath him so that he can see farther and expand his kingdom. However, the stacked turtles are in excruciating pain and Mack, the turtle at the very bottom of the pile, is suffering to the point of death. Mack asks Yertle for a respite, but Yertle just tells him to be quiet. Then Yertle decides to expand his kingdom and commands more and more turtles to add to his throne. Mack makes a second request for a respite because the increased weight is now causing extreme pain to the turtles at the bottom of the pile, as well as hunger. Again, Yertle yells at Mack to be quiet. Then Yertle notices the moon rising above him as the night approaches. However, before he can give the command, Mack decides he has had enough. He burps, which takes away Yertle's throne and tosses the turtle king off the turtle stack and into the water, leaving him "King of the Mud" and freeing the others.[1]
