Despite POTUS surrender and no matter how ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ spins it, the real question is how much longer will ⁦America's 2K+⁩ separated children to be considered missing by their friends and family members?

Who despite evidence to the contrary has tweeted confirmation that he is, in fact, a stable genius and is now proposing to merge US Department of Labor and Education? Is this a sinister plan to destroy both agencies?

POTUS Retreats

It was political poker and he folded. POTUS tried looking very tough, but eventually backed off when the going got rough.

What prompted a sudden @realDonaldTrump change of his unpopular @POTUS policy? Was it the outpouring of negative public opinion, a bluff went wrong, or another lie fact-checked, or all of the above? Trump breaks down and reverses himself by signing another executive order telling everyone to stop HIS family separation practice that blew up in his face.

Is separating migrant children from their families a policy that Trump implemented but now refuses to take responsibility for by pointing to Congress because the buck never stops there? Does he understand the president's job description and that he really works for all of US?

As a parent and a grandparent, he should know better if he knows or has learned anything during his long and sheltered life.

Underwater Real Estate

The real estate term underwater mortgage signifies that the loan balance is higher than the fair market value of the property.

This situation became common following the housing market crash that occurred in the late 2000s when many homeowners saw their homes lose a considerable portion of their value. Now there is another problem for homeowners to grapple with.

Who wants to build a wall and will do whatever necessary to get his way no matter what most Americans say? As a sign of intense US interest in this issue the news increases. Unfortunately, this is an old story with an evil twist.

POTUS has to realize that it is not only that this looks terrible in the eyes of the world. It is awful for 2,000 children who have been ripped from their parents’ arms over the past month. These policies are cruel, inhumane and certainly not America.

The Lost Vote

Submitted by ub on Mon, 06/18/2018 - 09:14

The lost vote could very well turn into the last vote. I was born under a banana republic type dictatorship, which gave way to Communist rule. Later in life, I had the opportunity to work for one of the world's largest Propaganda machines. The term refers to misinformation which may not be objective and used to influence folks by presenting unverified facts to encourage a particular perception using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response. Propaganda is associated with governments but not limited to it.

It's a bunch of hot air, and it's dangerous to humans and animals alike. The combination of high temperatures and high humidity is causing excessive heat advisories and warnings in Chicago and St. Louis as forecasters warned of blistering heat in northern tier states spreading to the East Coast. Forecasters say a large mass of hot and humid air moving to the Eastern Seaboard including New England and the Mid-Atlantic, setting up a potentially record-breaking day of high temperatures.

Fatherless US

A father figure conjures up a special image of a well respected elderly man who is an emotional rock and radiates paternal qualities.

Happy Father’s Day to every wonderful DaD and all father figures alive today. I realize it's not an easy being a father figure as a biological, spiritual, or any other qualities we expect from father.

Fathers Day Weekend

I loved my dad but did not tell him nearly half as many time as I should have. Thanks, Dad for everything you taught me. Now, ss a proud father and grandpa, I wish I were closer to my kids, who no longer live with me and have started their own lives. My two daughters and their families live in Califonia and my son who says he's going to be a lifelong bachelor moved out some time ago.
