    “Sen. Chris Murphy
    Went To The Border And Found Out Who Caused The Crisis (Hint: It Wasn’t Biden)”
    “The rise in migrants started at the end of last year, which means that it began under Trump.
    Republicans are trying to blame Biden for this issue, but it was Trump who dismantled the asylum system. It was Trump who saw a rising number of children who were arriving on the border.
    It was Trump who did nothing. Republicans are blaming Joe Biden for cleaning up another Trump disaster.”

    i would like to know whether our military TOD folks agree with this…

    • March 20, 2021 at 2:26 pm

      I most certainly do! We take an oath to support and defend the Constitution; insurrection IS NOT supporting, nor defending. Active duty, reservists, and national guard participants should be courts martialed and kicked out. Retirees should be recalled to active duty, courts martialed and stripped of pensions. Veterans receiving bennies should be stripped through the administrative process.

      I shared an article on the last post. Rep Reuban Gallegos has sent a letter to SecDef and SecVA requesting action be taken. I think Retirees and veterans must first be tried in court; those currently serving could be courts martialed in lieu of Fed prosecution.

      I’m not military, but I’m a citizen and I say “yes, if you stage an insurrection to overthrow the government, you forfeit your military benefits.”

      I used to work for the Navy before I retired and when I think of George W Bush and the former SECDEF Donald Rumsfeld, and other previous administrations – and now think of President Biden and SECDEF Lloyd Austin, I feel a certain kind of peace in the air.

    THANKS, EVERYONE!!!!!

    My special day has gotten off to a great start! The sun is shining beautifully outside, I’ve enjoyed a tasty meal, and now I’m relaxed as I read well-wishes from friends. ‘Who could ask for anything more?’ Not I. 😉

      We-ee–ll, getting a glimpse of Chips Chica would be some real icing on my virtual birthday cake. On such a day as this I definitely am thinking of her and DannyO, while wondering how they fared in this pandemic era.

    Vice President Harris:
    Violence Against the AAPI Community:

    “Over the past week, the President and I have traveled across the country
    to mark the passage of the American Rescue Plan, to tell the American people about how 100 million checks are on their way, about how 100 million vaccines have been administered. Big news, good news. And we plan to come down here to Georgia, to the place that made it possible, to share that information.

    And then Tuesday night we learned that eight of our neighbors were killed in a heinous act of violence. Violence that has no place in the state of Georgia or in the United States of America. And we were reminded yet again, that the crises we face are many. That the foes face are many. As the President and I discussed with our AAPI community in a meeting earlier today,
    whatever the killer’s motive, these facts are clear:
    Six out of the eight people killed on Tuesday night were of Asian descent.
    Seven were women.

    The shootings took place in businesses owned by Asian Americans.
    The shootings took place as violent hate crimes and discrimination against Asian Americans has risen dramatically over the last year and more. In fact, over the past year, 3,800 such incidents have been reported, two of three by women. Everything from physical assaults to verbal accusations, and it’s all harmful. And sadly it’s not new. Racism is real in America and it has always been. Xenophobia is real in America and always has been. Sexism too. In the 1860s, as Chinese workers built the Transcontinental Railroad, there were laws on the books in America forbidding them from owning property. In the 1940s, as Japanese American soldiers defended our nation, more than 120,000 Japanese Americans were forced to live in internment camps, an obvious and absolute abuse of their civil and human rights.
    Asian Americans have been attacked and scapegoated.
    People who are perceived as Muslim know what it was like to live in our country after 9/11.
    For the last year, we’ve had people in positions of incredible power scapegoating Asian-Americans.
    People with the biggest pulpits spreading this kind of hate.

    Ultimately, this is about who we are as a nation.
    This is about how we treat people with dignity and respect.
    Everyone has the right to go to work, to go to school, to walk down the street and be safe, and also the right to be recognized as an American. Not as the other, not as them, but as us. A harm against any one of us is a harm against all of us. The President and I will not be silent. We will not stand by. We will always speak out against violence, hate crimes and discrimination, wherever and whenever it occurs.”

    President Biden’s speech follows: (https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/joe-biden-kamala-harris-speech-on-violence-against-aapi-community-at-emory-transcript)

    “Wrestling with Ghosts: American Men”
    President Obama and Bruce Springsteen.

    6th Episode.
    Renegades: Born in the USA.
    (on Spotify)

    • March 22, 2021 at 2:30 pm

      Each episode has struck unexpected chords….the 11th child in a coal mining family, my father was barely literate when he married…a simple, kind man who sustained a terrible workplace head injury that never stopped aching, changed his personality, and ended his job as a bricklayer. After he died our mother revealed that from their earliest days he hadn’t given her any money! Our mother was something else to be sure. PBO and Springsteen talk about the messages sent to boys about what it means to be a man, and brings up the mysteries surrounding their fathers. Plus Bruce’s music reaches inside every time, wow.
