The only problem that I see with your post, is that actually, I don't represent the Left. I am not even a Democrat. I am a very proud Republican  that is against this Administration that is turning my party into a party that ignore moral values.
My party was a party that I was proud of, now, i feel ashamed to see those Republican in Congress and Senate that have no stones to actually stand to this President and allow this President to thrash their moral values. 


New policy, new policy. Who's going to break the truth to the author of this reply?

This is rker's topic and rker's title. The land and the concept of what its government should be and do remains beautiful.  Few in the world disagree IF they understand that the land and the concept are not necessarily the same as the people in it.  Should be...but isn't.

 

A long time ago, the term "Ugly American" came into common use with ample reasons for that.  Beautiful was no longer a term that fit overall, because some components had become rotten, ethically and morally corrupt, believing and acting contrary to the concept of its founders. 

 

That pejorative now clearly fits a significant number of this Nation's current citizens who, knowingly or not, voted to install a corrupt regime to govern it. 

 

I am so sorry this is so.  Perhaps this November we can begin to 'fix it".  Given what has happened and will continue to happen until we do, it is going to take awhile.  Longer than I will be around to witness.  I am so sorry this is so.  I know I am not alone in this regret.

All this "tearing from the bosom of the mother" jazz is very dramatic but here is a question - how many of the roughly 12,000 minors arrived here unaccompanied? I have heard about 10,000. If anyone has better numbers, let's talk about it. But the point is, if separating families is the issue, the stats show it to be a very small issue.

 

Remember all the posts with weeping and gnashing of teeth over the effects of the separation of children from their families - what about when they separate themselves?

The comparison is the support given to evil people by their followers, but apparently some have to have it explained to them.

Only to very ignorant people is ripping a nursing infant from their mother's nipple, making anything great, moreless, again.

 

It’s not just cruel to separate a breastfeeding baby from a mom. It’s medically dangerous.

Olderscout is a avery biased individual that blames all Republicans for what just a few has done.

I don't happen to agree with his conclusions and I do believe that the moral values that the Republicans have always sustained are now gone and have been supplanted by this new morality that exhalts  Alternative facts, that is cruel beyond belief that think of our allies as enemies and our enemies as our friends. Sorry that is not my Republican Party, it may have become yours, but I will tell you it will come bacK I have faith in all Americans that they will fight to see  the end of this nightmare.

Olderscout inferred that we got dirty air and the country is being destroyed by  Trump.Of course he is wrong and the country has made great strides in improving everything by Trump keeping his campaign promises. Is it any wonder his approval rating keeps going up?
