About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

The exact quote about John McCain being dead from Trump... Daily Kos:

“We needed 60 votes,” said Trump. “And we had 51 votes. And sometimes, you know, we had a little hard time with a couple of them. Right? Fortunately, they're gone now. They've gone on to greener pastures. Or perhaps … far less green pastures. They're gone, Bill. Very happy they're gone."

Here is a link to this quote from the Daily Kos:

Title of article at link..: Trump claims Mueller a criminal, is 'very happy' McCain is dead, and Fed chief is 'a pu— '

If you scroll down, first there is a screen with Fox’s Maria Bartiromo...Please skip that one...Then there are two pictures of Trump talking (with blue backgrounds) The second picture of him is the one where he says this. The name above the 2 pictures of Trump talking is....Aaron Rupar. The entire quote about the "greener pastures" in the second Trump video with Rupar's name is ..39 seconds. That is where Trump says, "They have gone on to greener pastures, Or perhaps...less greener." He is smiling as he says this horrific sentence. You got to see it, to believe it. Sorry this was so difficult to post, but later, someone will post just the 39 seconds. Thank You for reading this far.

On the Senate floor, Schumer showed the picture of the two dead refugees near the water.

Hit link to see picture and Schumer.

A prayer to get through this day and this moment:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference

A picture has arrived. It could destroy Trump...picture from CNN

Warning: This shows a father and his daughter lying dead at the border.

I guess it depends on how many people see this, and understand that Trump is responsible. If these people would have been able to cross legally, (for whatever reason) and felt safe doing so, they would not be dead. Trump is responsible for setting up this situation. We all know that. Everyone knows this. This is it in my opinion. Very sad. And yes, I could be wrong. Yes, some people don't care, but most of us do care.

This is about "why"? The Immigration Crises. Yes, we have had a flood of immigrants before..

When? From 1890 to 1924. Where from? Ireland, Russia, Poland, Ukraine, China, etc, etc. You name it, and that is where they came from. Why?..lots of reasons: 1. religious freedom, 2. economic advancement, 3. economic opportunity 4. desire to start a new life in a "free country" 4. ease of entrance 5. possibility of getting education. 6. friends and relatives did it urged them to come too 7. sections of cities were welcoming areas where their language was spoken and their churches were..
..How did they enter? The immigrants stayed at Ellis Island for a week to prove that they did not have tuberculosis and they had to be able to read a language, (any language) That is it. Industry was growing everywhere and we needed cheap labor. It was in the country's best interest to have these people.
(all four of my grandparents came in 1910 from Russia what is now Ukraine.)

...Why did it change? After World War One, there was a need to blame someone for the horrific deaths that were reported and that countries experienced. The immigrants were blamed. They were an easy target, even though the U.S. deaths in WWI were minor compared to other countries. The Russian Revolution created fear, and competition for jobs was strong. Immigrants worked for less, so the cost of labor was low. People who were here before were angry with the immigrants. They spoke a different language, they lived in their own neighborhoods, they often went to private schools, had churches etc.etc.etc. So as a result of these reasons and others not mentioned, the immigration act of 1924 was passed through Congress and became law. After 1924, the law created quotas for certain countries to allow their citizens to enter and stay here. So therefore, so many thousands could come from Ireland, Russia, Mexico, China etc. Systems were set up to control the numbers, where there were few in the first 20 years of the 1900s. There was also anti immigrant "hate" for lots of reasons.

So why are these people coming here? Same as before, to start a new life, and give opportunity to their children. Getting in was relatively easy. You come in for a short time, yes visitors are allowed in, of course, and you stay. period. So what is new? This administration is rounding them up, (those that are here beyond their times or came in illegally) and throwing their children into these detention centers. That is new.

Before Trump, we let them stay, some got thrown out, most stayed in illegally. The new children were citizens because they were born here and life went on. The kids melted in because they spoke almost perfect English because they spoke it at school and learned it. Life went on for better or worse.

Now, we round them up, and basically throw the kids in jail. So..who decided to do this?...It was President Trump who decided to change the way we treated these people. Why? "Got to get rid of them you know" says his supporters. And Drump says the same thing. Throw the kids in jail. The immigration and border patrol catch them and basically do that (with orders from Drump) Kids are suppurated from parents. (says Trump) That is it and that is all of it.

Duncan Hunter & Trump are alike in one aspect: They are both sure they can get away with anything

Anything goes. Anything can be said about anything and there will be..no consequences at all After the current mess is over (whatever that is) the two are sure that they can get away with more. The story about Hunter and what he did, is similar to Trump in that Hunter's behavior reflects someone who is not worried that anything negative can happen to him. Kinda like "above reproach" "above any law" "above anyone ever doing anything to me" "I can get away with anything, any time, or any place." "No one will stop me."

...I read about what Hunter did to his wife and what he did to the political funds and the rest. His attitude is totally unworried about consequences. totally, and that is the same as Trump...No consequences to what is said or what he does.

..It is clear about the children in cages too. No consequences to Trump. He is not worried about any of the consequences. He is sure he will get away with it. I sure hope he is wrong about that. ....
..

As a side note about Hunter..his wife has agreed as part of her guilty plea to testify against her husband and what he has been charged with. That will be something..

3 Words Are Destroying Trump Forever, "Children in Cages"

..This is not difficult to understand. Everyone knows what is going on. Filth, dirt, no soap, children throwing up, no clothes to change into, sleeping on floors, lots of children in very small areas, and the rest of it is very easy to understand. Eventually, we will see what inhuman conditions Trump has been in charge of. As word gets out, and if no pictures are available, then artists renditions will be enough. The older kids will be asked to describe where they were, and what they saw. It is a horror that the U.S.A. will always regret. And as Trump defends himself, he will be destroyed forever with the truth. It won't be pretty but it will happen. Trump doesn't give a damn about the children, but when his name is destroyed forever he will understand. Trump is in charge, and Trump is responsible for this horror. And his lies will live forever as will these three words which will always describe his time in office.. "Children in Cages."

The video of altered Time Magazine with Trump running forever proves he is sick.

..Using time as President of the U.S.A. to send out something like that is mentally ill. That one was published under Trump's name, with his approval, today while he was in the White House. This is not a joke as Trump sees it. It goes against the Constitution of the United States that says he cannot run forever . It is proposing and trying to publicize this is "illegal." Using his time in office during a normal working day to do this is not just weird, it is morally wrong and illegal.
...It is using his present position to glorify an illegal act. An act that is clearly against the U.S. Constitution.. Think about it carefully. It is beyond reason in my opinion. We will see how this plays out. And no matter what Trump says, it is not a joke.

Funniest Movies ? (your opinion) We all need to laugh.
