    We knew it 30 years ago:
    “What troubles lie ahead for a generation reared by strangers? What kind of adults will they become?
    “It is scaring everybody that a whole generation of children is being raised in a away that has never happened before.” (Edward Zigler). “At least one major survey of current research, by Penn State’s Belsky, suggests that extensive day care in the first year of life raises the risk of emotional problems….Wth high-quality supervision costing upwards of ….. a week, many families are placing their children in the hands of untrained, overworked personell. In some places, that means one woman talking care of nine babies. Nobody doing that can give them the stimulation they need. We encounter some real horror stories out there, with babies being tied into cribs.”
    ((Claudia Wallis, “The Child-care Dilemma”, Time)

      The U.S. is the only only OECD member: “that does not guarantee a working mother the right to a leave of absence after she has a child….Many parents return to the workplace grieving.”
      –Multiply the damage by a trillion and what Trump is doing by separating and caging nursing babies, pre-verbal toddlers, and children of all ages. The Hague will be too good for him and Pence when this is over.
      And IT WILL be over.

    After skipping the G7 summit meeting on Climate, Oceans and Biodiversity:
    Trump: “”I’m an environmentalist. A lot of people don’t understand that,” Trump said,
    citing his experience filing environmental impact statements for real estate developments.””

      good to hear that DiCaprio put together $5 million to help put out the fires in the Amazon.

      Too bad too many people don’t understand that this man is a pathological liar. I don’t believe he can even make the distinction between the true and his lies any more. He is a danger to us all.

    Every since I have been seeing the fire burning in the Amazon, I have been thinking of the song by Michael Jackson call Earth Song. I’ve been watching that over and over.

    I keep hearing Democrats talk about how this candidate doesn’t excite them or that one doesn’t excite them, but I say to hell with all that excitement talk. Getting Trump out of office ought to be the only excitement any Democrat need. Knowing that if Trump is re- elected he could put another SP judge on the bench, that ought to excite all Democrats. With the news of Ruth B.Ginsburg having cancer remove , that could be another seat for Trump to re-place. We Democrats must com together.

      Agree with you. I need no excitement. All I am waiting for is 2020, Election Day, and while waiting, I talk to as many new and non-voters about the need to votes this deranged man out!

      I totally agree with you Hillary. I am so sick of this excitement stuff. One thing about Republicans is that, they do not care about excitement. That is one reason why we have Trump. If excitement and large crowds elected Presidents, Sanders Would be President right now.

    • August 26, 2019 at 3:39 pm

      Totally agree with you. Folks need to grow up and stop needing to be entertained.

    Mafia Don’s “environmentalist” record. True story:
    Trump through the window of his chauffeured car repeatedly told archeologists who were finding artifacts in the NY site he wanted to build on: “Make them (the artifacts) go away, just make them go away.”
    Fact: When a real estate outfit wants to brieak ground in NY for example, archaeological investigation is required and LPC guidelines must be followed: https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/lpc/downloads/pdf/2018_Guidelines%20for%20Archaeology_Final_high%20res.pdf)

      Mr. Robinson:
      “In Trump’s fanciful version…Crimea was “taken away from President Obama. … It was very embarrassing to him.” That embarrassment, Trump falsely claims, is the only reason Russia was kicked out of the group. Trump wants Russia readmitted….You will also recall that at last year’s G-7 gathering, Trump reportedly said that Crimea was really Russian all along… And, of course, he offers no suggestion as to what Obama might have done to prevent the Russian invasion.”

    What of Russia’s “floating nuclear power station” now sailing from Murmansk to Chuckotka in the Arctic?
    The plan is apparently to send more nuclear power stations by sea into remote areas.
    Arctic shipping is opening up.
    = 40 years of imo intentional melting of the Arctic by Exxon and big oil.
    = Now if only the dastardly Putin-Trump duo can acquire Greenland into the bargain.

      Or is it a video clip from a lost 1960’s Bond movie?
      Expect to see a guy looking a lot like Putin, complete with prosthetic metal hands due to radiation exposure take over global television airways.

    Over last weekend, to avoid iQ45 invasion of my teevee, we watched a documentary on Teddy Pendergrass. Some stuff I knew, others were news to me. Anyhoo, in that documentary, was this clip of Teddy in concert in London. Phew!

    JUST IN: Scaramucci says 25th Amendment should be considered to remove Trump, citing “full-blown insanity” …

    The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of a president if the vice president and a majority of Cabinet secretaries agree in writing that the commander in chief is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” … http://hill.cm/GXGrvTW

    Ben Rhodes last night on O’Donnell:
    (hv transcribed)
    “President Trump came into this office with kind a world view of a habitual right wing consumer, he had this desire to get into a trade war with China. But he had no idea Lawrence where this was going to end, what the objectives were. To this day, when we’re well into this trade war, we still don’t know what Donald Trump is trying to achieve, and let’s be honest, about what we’re facing here – the tariffs are taxes on Americans.
    Americans are paying more for goods because Donald Trump is levying these tariffs. Americans in key industries that he needs for his re-election, like agriculture, are being decimated by this trade war with China, because the reprisals from China are really hurting American farmers. So what we are seeing and I think the Democratic candidates have articulated, is Donald Trump’s recklessness – the thing everybody knows about it.
    He is reckless, impetuous and doesn’t think things through. We’re seeing the very real consequences of that, day-to-day the prices people are paying and the costs this is having on American sectors that are really important to our economy. And most importantly to the potential recession that is coming! He inherited the Obama economy and his reckless trade war could put us into a global economic downturn, and I think that’s what’s worrying all these leaders and that should be worrying Americans as well.”

    “He simply says what he wants to be true,
    without concern about whether it falls in the same quadrant of reality
    of anything that’s happing on this planet. Trump will lie about his contacts with another government, even when he knows that government is almost certain to contradict his statement. He’ll lie about his statements to his own Cabinet, even if Cabinet members have already discussed the truth of what he said. He’ll lie about statements he made in front of news cameras, or on Twitter; then he’ll lie about his lies.”
    —“Remember when President Xi Jinping of China was the “enemy”? That was so Friday.
    As of Monday, according to President Trump, Mr. Xi was “a great leader” and a “brilliant man.” (NYT)

    Read on Vanity Fair an hour ago. Biden’s gaffes really only showcase what we’ve known about him for a long time-that he makes gaffes, writes Peter Hamby. Compared to the horror show coming out of Trump’s mouth and tweets on a near daily basis, who cares?
