We really need to stop caring about semantics and start caring about human beings. 


That's not going to happen with republicans/conservatives/trump cultists - they - like trump - appear to only care about power and money rather than human beings.

Yes. The Trump camps are pretty bad. Tornillo was so infamous they finally had to shut it down. In El Paso, they are still keeping refugees behind fencing under a bridge.  The recently announced they were discontinuing sports and other activities not directly related to school or health.  It is a mess down here.  Please vote so we can actually elect a president this time and one who can read and is not considered  a moron by his Secretary of State.

AOC UNGLUED:

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended her vicious comments made on social media Monday night; blaming “shrieking Republicans” for the political fallout after she compared immigration detention centers with Nazi Concentration Camp.

 

“And for the shrieking Republicans who don’t know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps. Concentration camps are considered by experts as ‘the mass detention of civilians without trial.’ And that’s exactly what this administration is doing,” posted AOC on Twitter.

And that’s exactly what this administration is doing.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border. That’s exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. If that doesn’t bother you… I like, whatever, I want to talk to the people that are concerned with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something,” said the left-wing lawmaker.

 

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing,” she added.

The self-described Democratic Socialist made national headlines last week when she called for a $4,500 raise for Members of Congress and a “cost-of-living adjustment” for all Americans.

“It may be politically convenient and make you look good in the short term… but we should be fighting for pay increases for every American worker. We should be fighting for $15 an hour minimum wage pegged to inflation,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

 

“Everybody in the United States, with a salary, with a wage gets a cost of living increase. Members of Congress, retail workers, everybody should get a cost of living increase,” she added.

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Her district must be a very interesting group of people...
