    Arapaho has a couple of excellent thread about ICE, deportation, the adoption business and the billions being spent.

      wow Arapaho, wow. Trafficking was on my mind when children were separated and lost – but not this for-profit industry:
      “The craze for adoption among Evangelical Christians has contributed to a boom and bust market for children around the world”. (NYT)
      “Evangelicals from the Bible Belt to Southern California don wristbands or T-shirts reading “orphan addict” or “serial adopter.”
      -Trump. administration’s opposition to the breast feeding resolution.
      ‘Stolen babies’ -Secret practice of baby abductions during dictatorship of Gen Francisco Franco.
      The “Unincorporated Alien Child” program “has a fiscal 2018 budget of $1.3 billion. Companies are typically awarded contracts that act as an open purchase order, allowing requests from… HHS to be filled quickly until they reach their full amount.”https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trumps-family-separation-policy-already-cost-millions/ …
      Must see: “The business of making millions from chid separations”. (CBS)

      Thank you for this info, arapaho. Hard to wrap my head around, but I did pass it along to a friend of mine that works on human trafficking issues.

    imo we are in grave danger. Why is GrassHatchMcConnell Trump in such a rush to anoint Kavanaugh? What’s the panic?
    Americans have been blinded to longtime GOP-Koch-Russia machinations. We must untie our hands without delay.
    -Grassley must be aware that even if he screws us over, Kavanaugh might well be dragged off the SC and jailed later if found guilty. GOP cannot protect him from that but why would they care.
    -imo the idea is to get Kavanaugh installed so he can do some SERIOUS DAMAGE in October before the Election.
    -And prevent themselves from criminal charges like conspiracy with Russia. Panic setting in.
    -Time is short for GOP so they want to ram their boy through.
    -Anyway chaos is good for Putin. Distraction is good for Trump. Trump gone = not good for Putin.
    -Then there’s the super-objective of a LIfe Time presidency for a Trump.
    We’re out of time. Cannot be sitting ducks for Kavanaugh and the others en train. Am checking into what is on the SC docket for October that
    must be sooo important to this Administration.

    GOP, McConnell, Putin, Koch, nra + big money Evangelical preachers exploiting their flocks,
    held up spotless middle-of-the-road Republican Merrick Brian Garland, Chief U.S. Circuit Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DCC for an entire year: To get their religious right, anti-LGBT, anti-women’s rights and reproductive health, anti-immigrant, criminal protection Trump mini-me candidate Kavanaugh. (And because Trump is ‘God’s chosen” I guess the religious right also wants him to be president permanently.)
    Hey imagine if Kavanaugh is installed and Democrats don’t win House and Senate…

    Let me tell you what life was like as a girl in Montgomery County, Maryland, in the early 1980s. I am a year older than Christine Blasey Ford and a year younger than Brett Kavanaugh. I grew up in Potomac, Maryland, a few miles from both Holton Arms, Ford’s school, and Georgetown Prep, which Kavanaugh attended, but I went to my local public high school, Churchill. Never mind that any girl who was in high school in Potomac during that era knew, through the whisper network, not to go to a Georgetown Prep party alone. That was a given. What was also a given is that “date rape,” as a term, was in its infancy. Most of us thought getting our bodies groped at a high-school party—or anywhere—was the unfortunate price we paid for having them, not something we would ever go to the police to report.

    Even in junior high school, this was true. I have a vivid memory of my friend Marcia having her skirt ripped off her body in the middle of a bar mitzvah dance floor. It had snaps down the middle. I actually heard one boy say, as she was weeping in a corner, trying to refasten her skirt, “I mean, duh. If you’re going to wear snaps on your skirt, what do you think will happen?” I made a mental note: Never wear snaps to a dance party.

    Let the record show that : I am glad that I never believed that G W Bush has become a better person.

    My feelings have been reaffirmed after reports of his support of this SCOTUS nominee and his decision to hold fundraisers for the republicans.

    You cannot claim to despise and disagree with scumbag45 and the current republican policies and then you turn around and do what you can to make sure that they retain or get more power that would enable them to perpetuate these cruel, corrupt and shameful policies.

      yes. gop has been getting away with force-feeding Americans big lies especially since 2001 with the finagling of Gore’s votes c/o Florida Governor Jeb Bush and the Bush boys’ buddy Secretary of State of Florida Katherine Harris. Will never forget seeing GW and Jeb in a Florida in 2000 restaurant just prior to voting day. They gave each other a big nudge-nudge-wink-wink and laughingly reassured the reporter “hey there’s no… doubt …we’re going to win” and I got the message.

      Sunday greetings, Sheila, to you and the family. 🙂

      Not distracted per se to the obvious things the GOPs are doing, but maybe distracted/unaware of what they are accomplishing behind the scenes? Did you see this clip I stumbled upon yesterday? It’s only about 5 minutes but it made sense to me; given the duplicity of Repubs Dems need to be aware on all fronts. [I’m not a fan of Maher (his foul mouth jars for me) but he doesn’t say much in this clip.] Take a look…

          Hi, Df. I’m alive so all is well. 🙂 Trusting all is well with you too.
          I’m peeking in the TODvillage more often than I’m not only I don’t say much. Also, no worries. Since I’m only one body in this large family, over the years I’ve learned how to steer around the colourful language. 😉
