    I vote twice a year, and in special elections. Sometimes, I wonder why.

I have a sick feeling that there are already families who may not ever see each other again. There are plenty of couples wanting to adopt children. I wonder how many have already been secretly adopted out via private, religious institutions with sealed records.

    On edit, the tRUMP tents went up quickly. One prison camp could be used for families. My understanding is families hitherto were housed together until the asylum/refugee hearing. They were treated fairly well (food, clean water, medical, etc) If their hearing was negative, the whole family was deported together.
    This latest twist on it was Miller's, reportedly. But they've been separating kids since the 'W' administration. Obama's policy was to keep them together.

    The difference here is that these kids may have less chance of seeing them again. Under "W", kids who were separated from their parents were considered 'abandoned' and eligible to be adopted by Americans! I just read a story somewhere about a woman who's son was separated from her in 2005, I think, and the court just let his American foster parents adopt him. The mother hasn't seen him since.

    How creepy is that? Stuff like that in our collective past is probably why we've been visited with the reality we have now.

    The BIG difference is that American military personnel know what they are getting into. The know up front that they may be separated from their families or vice versa and may never see them again if they are killed in combat protecting our dumb asses. They knew this when they signed up and while it's a heartbreaking picture, no one is forced to sign on the line in the all-volunteer military.

    People who equate the separation of military families to the separation of families seeking a better life in the US are morons!

    I scream BULLSHIT!!! so hard at least once a day that I'm afraid I will hurt my throat. Try to look past the clown in the White House to see what his cronies in the halls of Congress are doing to you while you are distracted. They are taking away anything that is of benefit to you.

    Be careful, if you give yourself a medical condition over it, they will 'cover' you all right.
