LOCK THE CHILDREN UP, NOW!

Lets get something straight ……….. taking children from their parents after crossing the border seeking asylum is against EVERYTHING this country has ever stood for and yet Jeff Sessions, John Kelly and Dumbtrump and those Republican’ts that support them are breaking the LAW OF HUMAN DECENCY. (AGAIN!)

White House chief of staff John Kelly told NPR’s John Burnett earlier this month that “the children will be taken care of — put into foster care or whatever”.

AND YET 1500 children that were taken into custody ARE UNACCOUNTED FOR and nobody knows where they are or where they were sent!

WHAT THE FUCK?

Is this country THAT DYSFUNCTIONAL?

The U.S. is obligated to accept asylum-seekers under U.S. and international law if they can show a “credible fear” of persecution or torture.

There IS NO LAW that “. . . even remotely requires the separation of children (from their parents), and we filed a recent lawsuit arguing, in fact, that the Constitution prohibits this policy.” (According to the ACLU.)

The practice of putting children “. . . into foster care or whatever” was something that was being done when children arrived at our boarders UNACCOMPANIED but was not intended to be used for children who arrived with their parents.

That policy was CREATED by Sessions and OrangeDump NOT the Democraps!

Of course, OrangeDump is out there on his soap box blaming the Democraps but this time it is just not true. Pretty much like all things OrangeDump says. But who even counts anymore?

In an interview with NPR in May, White House chief of staff John Kelly described family separation as a “tough deterrent.” And that is from a guy who lost his own son so you’d think he’d have a better understanding and compassion for the loss of a child. But no, he doesn’t seem to get it no matter how often he visits his son’s grave in Arlington Cemetery.

Hey John, you may want to ask your wife about a loss of a son. Just another “tough deterrent” …… right John?

Like Tubularsock has said before and will repeat ad nauseam, the reason so many Latin Americans are fleeing for protection from their countries is because of the destructive U.S. foreign policies toward Latin America which have been going on for years.

Those policies have lead to the causes of a massive exodus from Latin America and according to government data shows that most of the children traveling alone and families traveling together from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, are fleeing drug cartels, gang violence and domestic abuse. As well as the dictators the U.S. installed while “influencing” their elections.

 

But COMPASSION is not one of Jeff Sessions and Dumps strong suits. Perhaps due to poor potty training in their formative years.

Holding in shit for that many years can cause a continuous flow in pseudo-adulthood.

LOST VALUES — SING ALONG!

Remember that old Pete Seeger folk song,

Where have all the values gone?
Long time passing

Where have all the values gone?
Long time ago

Where have all the values gone?
We have dumped them every one

When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?

OR WAS THAT FLOWERS?

Whatever!

Unless you have be living in a cave in Siberia you may have noticed that the values that the United States once upheld (even if they were not perfect) have pretty much been eliminated.

You remember, things like lying, cheating, torture, conflict of interest, caring for others, killing, the rule of law, taking responsibility for your actions, democracy …….. you know stuff like that.

WE HAVE NO LEADERS IN THE UNITED STATES THAT HAVE ANY OF THOSE VALUES. LET ALONE A LEADER TO STAND UP FOR THEM!

Oh sure, before they are elected they spout those values and after they are elected they spout those values but THEY NEVER SPROUT those values once they are in office. NEVER!

And when false values are the watchword of the day we really start to see for ourselves the downfall and breakup of our society.

Because if we, as a society, don’t have strong values to promote and uphold, then we have NOTHING.

If people don’t have honor within them the chances for them to be an honorable person is diminished.

And that is where we stand right now, with “one foot over the line” or was that “one toke”? Sweet Jesus.

Whatever!

So, let Tubularsock run you through an easy one, TORTURE.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO EVER USE TORTURE ON ANIMALS OR HUMANS EVER, PERIOD. This has to be a core value because anything less leaves you with no honor of self, period.

And yet the current President of the United States believes that it “works” and has stated that he believes in it.

And now we see that the Congress of the United States believes in torture, as well, thereby they have approved a Torturer to head the CIA, “Bloody Gina”.

And of course whenever Torture is mentioned fucking Dick Cheney is brought out of his lair to expound upon its virtues.

And Cheney, loves the virtues of torture so much that he loves to be beaten by Lynn in their dungeon to bring about sexual arousal. “Beat me, beat me Lynn!”

And just to show you that Tubularsock isn’t some liberal goody-goody, Tubularsock’s fantasy has always been meeting Dick Cheney in some dark alleyway and in one rapid movement slicing his chest cavity open with a rusty Boy Scout knife and reaching in and pulling out his beating bloody stolen heart and throwing it into a pig pen to be consumed! They’ll eat anything!

But hey, won’t happen because Tubularsock has taken an anger management seminar.

AND the fact that the statistical chances of Tubularsock encountering Dick Cheney in a dark alleyway is “ZERO” so there you go …….. math wins out!

Of course, “Bloody Gina” would not say that torture was MORALLY WRONG because she ran a torture site and should be in jail as a war criminal rather than made the head of the CIA!

But the United States has lost that value, morality.

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

Another value we have lost is TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS. Have you noticed that?

“Bloody Gina” was the chief of staff for Jose Rodriguez, the director of the CIA National Clandestine Service. She was responsible for drafting a cable ordering the shredding of videotapes depicting torture sessions, despite a court order staying their destruction.

That action is against the law but not only did she “follow orders” as any good German SS solider would do BUT THE ONLY ACTION taken by any governmental body for a blatant illegal action was to promote her to CIA Director.

So with that you can throw out the RULE OF LAW as another lost value.

And remember if the RULE OF LAW principle was really practiced then George, Dick, Don, Condo, Killery, Dump, Obummer would ALL be in prison today for war crimes.

However, that value has been tossed aside.

Well, for the ruling class anyway. But don’t you jaywalk! You’ll be in the clinker!

The list goes on and on but the values are lost to our nation and won’t be coming back any time soon. The cracks in the Republic are rapidly expanding and Donald Trump is no more to blame than the American population for sitting by and selling out our principles.

As for Tubularsock, you’ll find him,
“sittin’ on the dock of the Bay, wasting time”

WHATEVER!
