Checks & Imbalances?

Submitted by ub on Mon, 07/23/2018 - 09:38

The separation of powers is the system of governance of The United States of America. Under this model, the #USA government is divided into branches, each with separate and independent powers and areas of responsibility so that the powers of one branch are not in conflict with the powers associated with the other branches.

US Laws are written in the legislative branch, or the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Senate is composed of two senators from each state. Membership in the House of Representatives is determined by population. Controlled by GOP conservatives.

Slowly Reuniting Families

Submitted by ub on Sat, 07/21/2018 - 08:47

While POTUS is increasingly enamored with Putin, one could ask how Trump would have reacted if these were Russian families crossing the US Border?

Only 264 of 2,500 migrant children have reportedly been reunited with their families. The Trump administration claims to have reunited just 264 of the more than 2,500 children ages 5 and older who were separated from their families at the border and following misdemeanors.

That could leave hundreds of kids in limbo, perhaps at the Health and Human Services’ detention centers, before a court-ordered deadline on July 26.

Educate and Inform

What happens inside the classroom no longer stays there. How does this affect education or represent the teaching process?

In an era of secret recordings and online evaluations, the possibility of public judgment hovers over every educator. That’s making the difficult art of teaching a bit messy.

I try to give intellectual, moral, and social instruction to all my good students, typically at a college or university. The bad students are a horse with a different name, regardless of the language.

It is a noun, and a verb LOVE is the most spectacular, indescribable, deep euphoric feeling for someone. It is an is an incredibly powerful word. When you're in love, you always want to be together, and when you're not, you're thinking about being together because you need that person and without them your life is incomplete.

We all have within us more love than we could ever understand. All we have to do is nourish and share it.

Where's Putin POTUS Proof?

These two spin doctors may both be suffering from acute anti-social diseases and some fear it may contagious. Whatever happened to Trust but Verify in the GOP Lexicon? Originally it was a Russian proverb Doveryai, no Proveryai Russian: Доверяй, но проверяй; Trust, but verify. The Russians like to talk in proverbs. It would be nice to apply, instead of rolling the dice. The devil in the details. There you go again -

Pushover POTUS

Submitted by ub on Wed, 07/18/2018 - 20:28

Trump has falsely made multiple claims with his many lies which have been fact-checked with videotape. A month after a shocking POTUS photo op with North Korea's formerly isolation Kim Jong-un, US sanction against that regime is crumbling, military pressure has eased without #RocketMan making a single permanent concession on its nuclear program.

Then Trump meets with Russia's Putin and kisses up to him as=t the expem=nse of US intelligence community. Why is Donald J Trump really incapable of stating the facts as they occur?
