NO PLACE FOR THEM

This Thanksgiving, No Place for Refugees at the American Table
Posted on Nov 18, 2015
By Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan

In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris on Nov. 13, there has been a crushing backlash against refugees from the wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. As Americans prepare for one of the most popular national holidays, Thanksgiving, which commemorates the support and nourishment provided by the indigenous people to English refugees seeking a better life free from religious persecution, a wave of xenophobia is sweeping the country.

In the U.S. Congress, no less than six separate bills have been put forward to block any federal funding to resettle refugees from Syria or Iraq and to empower states to deny entry into their “territory.” 

Imagine if all of a sudden we had 50 “statelets” creating their own border checkpoints, stopping all travelers, looking for anyone suspicious, i.e., any and all Syrians.

So far, 31 state governors have essentially demanded this.

Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback issued an executive order forbidding any agency of state government from cooperating in any way with Syrian refugee support efforts. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have called for a pause in the Syrian refugee program, with the support of Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer.

(all so called Chrstians)

It has been almost 400 years since that first, fateful Thanksgiving feast in Massachusetts.

Xenophobic policies like those threatening to shut out refugees from these wars, if allowed to stand, should serve as a shameful centerpiece at every Thanksgiving table this year.

Thoughts for today, #289 .… “Freedom Fries …. Remember when?”!!


FreFries

~~November 19, 2015~~ 

FREEDOM FRIES

Freedom fries is a political euphemism for French fries in the United States. The term came to prominence in 2003 when the then Republican Chairman of the Committee on House Administration, Bob Ney, renamed the menu item in three Congressional cafeterias in response to France’s opposition to the proposed invasion of Iraq.

Although originally supported with several restaurants changing their menus as well, the term fell out of use due to declining support for the Iraq War.

Following Ney’s resignation as Chairman, it was quietly reverted.

Something to think about …. “Innocence Lost …. Sad”!!

WAR CHILD

Little girl, trying to sleep in your bed
don’t listen to the sound of the bombs nearby
just close your eyes and try not to cry
and let your brother sing you a lullaby.
And don’t listen to the noise of the guns
as the bullets flash by your door, don’t cry
just think of the peace found in sleep
while your brother sings you a lullaby.
Little girl, as you sleep in your bed
when you dream, try not to dream of the day
when soldiers came with their guns
and took your father away.
And when you wake up to a new day
looking for the sun, through the dust and smoke
try to find some hope in that terrible place
as you and your brother strive to cope.
Little girl, war is the world of grown ups
and there is nothing you can do
even if you tell them of your fear and sorrow
no one will listen to you.
But when the war is over and done
and you no longer hear an exploding shell
maybe your young life will be a better place
more like Heaven and less like Hell.

Thoughts for today, #152 …. “No issue, no change”!!


NoChange

~~May 7, 2015~~ 

There’s Only So Much You Can Do

By: Gaby Dunn

How can you stand by, though, when someone you love is self-destructing? How can you not at least try to make them see that they’re hurting themselves?

Unfortunately, I don’t think it works that way. The missing piece is that the other person has to want help. You can’t force them to believe anything is wrong — wrong enough to warrant some major changes in their life.

BLine

“Change is scary

Admitting you have huge innate flaws is scary”

BLine

People like to think they have a handle on themselves until they really, really don’t. And even then sometimes, they will fight you, kicking and screaming, and still not realize they are in trouble. They’re so used to being on a boat with a hole in the bottom, retaining water, that they don’t even believe in boats without that.

You can not help someone who doesn’t want help. I know it’s frustrating. It’s like a terrifying Ferris wheel, where they keep going ’round and ’round, making the same mistakes over and over while you stand on the ground and watch, sucking in breath through your teeth and holding your tongue.

Torture Report Details Long List Of America’s Brutal Crimes

“The CIA’s harsh interrogations of terrorist detainees during the Bush era didn’t work, were more brutal than previously revealed and delivered no “ticking time bomb” information that prevented an attack, according to an explosive Senate report released Tuesday.

My comments on the above post:

“Shameful, debased, inhumane …. and condoned by the past administration and refused to be pursued by the current one. A shame then …. a deep scar on the country. A country with no moral right AT ALL to judge, condemn, persecute any other country! The proverbial “pot calling the kettle black”. A shameful day …. another day to live in infamy! Another thing/issue not to be proud about at all!”

BlackBor

My Facebook status post early this morning: 

I was raised to believe that the USA was the greatest country in the world. I lived with American influence throughout my life. It always was my goal to live in”the mainland”.
December is the month when “a day in infamy” is remembered. Another such day will be included as it’s been confirmed that the country’s “rulers” secretly approved and conducted the lowest of the low methods of torture (with the less prepared agents – if anyone can be prepared to torture another human being),
The “program” was approved during the Bush administration and will be kept “under the rug” during the Obama administration. A huge mark on this country, leaving a big scar. There is no moral stand to judge, condemn or persecute other so called “barbaric” countries – which decapitate, rape, plunder, steal, profit, oppress, – when the USA is no different. The proverbial “pot calling the kettle black”! Pun intended …. shame, shame. How low can anyone go? A day in infamy indeed!! Feeling more than disappointed and terribly disgusted ….. it’s been a while that I knew “that there was no Santa”.

~~Torture Report Details Long List Of America’s Brutal Crimes~~

~~Published on Dec 9, 2014~~

The majority report issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee is a damning condemnation of the tactics — branded by critics as torture — the George W. Bush administration deployed in the fear-laden days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The techniques, according to the report, were “deeply flawed,” poorly managed and often resulted in “fabricated” information.

The long-delayed study, distilled from more than six million CIA documents, also says the agency consistently misled Congress and the Bush White House about the harsh methods it used and the results it obtained from interrogating al Qaeda suspects.”* The Young Turks Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Thoughts for today …. #66!!


~~December 2, 2014~~ 

This gesture took place on November 30, 2014

“Prior to player introductions before Sunday’s game, five players — Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Chris Givens, and Kenny Britt — came out onto the field first with their hands in the air prior to being joined by their teammates.

Responding to the display, the statement reads, ‘The St. Louis Police Officers Association is profoundly disappointed with the members of the St. Louis Rams football team who chose to ignore the mountains of evidence released from the St. Louis County Grand Jury this week and engage in a display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory.’…

While the gesture was first attributed to the shooting death of Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the display has grown as a symbolic gesture used in protests over multiple shootings of young black men by police officers.”

ELIZABETH LAUTEN …. Words have consequences!!


~~December 2, 2014~~ 

KARMA AT WORK

This issue has been all over social media and the blogosphere. The results show the power of people when joined in a common effort. The lady stated her opinion, not expecting the backlash. She issued an apology which wasn’t accepted. She resigned her post.

Words do have consequences!

BorderFib

“During the annual presidential pardoning of a turkey on Thanksgiving, Sasha and Malia Obama acted like typical teenagers during the ceremony in a way that suggested they were indifferent to the occasion. Among the signs were arm folding and eye rolling, and the media had fun playing and commenting on the footage. Again, most sane people had no problem with the girls’ behavior, because we all know what’s like to be a teenager who is embarrassed around their parents, even if it is for no particular reason.”

Directly from “The Fifth Column”. 

I’ve always held fast to the belief that if your house is made out of glass …. you better think twice about throwing stones!

The power of social media

WE ARE CALLING FOR THE IMMEDIATE TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT FOR THIS SICK EVIL WOMEN’S DISGUSTING & INEXCUSABLE COMMENTS ABOUT THE FIRST DAUGHTERS!!!
