Quote
On the left, Trump opponents wonder if the president was ever a participant in Epstein’s sexual crimes. Trump was at one point accused by a young woman of raping her at Epstein’s New York home when she was 13; the lawsuit in which those accusations were made was withdrawn by the accuser. We also know that Trump and Epstein socialized, that Trump’s various phone numbers were written in Epstein’s notorious little black book, and that Epstein was once asked whether he had ever been around Trump and underage girls – and he invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination...

If democracy and the rule of law are to mean anything, we have to put an end to the rich evading justice and buying sweetheart deals like the one Epstein got in FL.

Well...

CBP concentration camps will be a good place to keep recently appointed federal judges until we can figure out what the hell is going on.

From the ACLU -

Hi Tony –

The stories coming out of child detention centers are unconscionable. Toddlers sleeping on cold cement floors. Children caring for babies. Lack of soap and toothbrushes, food and water. And in recent months, at least six children have died in custody and another child died soon after being released. That's inexcusable.

We'll continue to use every tool at our disposal to hold CBP accountable – but we need your help. Sign our petition to Congress demanding they investigate CBP detention sites and hold CBP to account for harming children.

This week, we saw a tragic photo of the dead bodies of Oscar Alberto Martinez and his 23-month-old daughter Valeria, who drowned in the Rio Grande river while seeking refuge in the U.S. It's hard to imagine the desperation that leads families to take this perilous journey. It's even harder to imagine the depths of inhumanity that our government will sink to in order to pursue its racist, anti-immigrant agenda.

We should be better than this, Tony.

Together with our four million supporters, we've been calling Congress to make loud and clear that we refuse to give even more of our taxpayer money to DHS and its sub-agencies, CBP and ICE. We've sued the Trump administration over family separation and other inhumane policies against immigrants and asylum seekers. And we've rallied behind legislation that would protect immigrant communities and create a path to citizenship. We're winning, but there's still much work to be done.

Demand that Congress investigate child detention sites and hold CBP to account for its inhumane treatment of children.

Let's come together and demand better from our government. The children deserve it.

Thanks for making your voice heard,

Astrid Dominguez
Director of the ACLU Border Rights Center

------------------------

We have shrinking cities which could use the immigrants. For instance, Detroit could use the people.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrinking_cities

We can bus the whole families to Detroit, while keeping the families intact. And then we can set the people free in Detroit with EBT cards, and with help with housing, etc, and the Unions can help them to get jobs, etc, they can help each other and other people can help them, they can live their American Dream in Detroit. And there can be redevelopment money and business loans in Detroit, etc.

Instead of holding the people in detention centers, we need to bus the families to Detroit and set them free in Detroit with aid to get settled, etc.

Salute,

Tony V.

I sent some emails to the City Council in Detroit, and here is a response that I received...

----

Dear Tony V,

Thank you so much for sharing your insight. Our office has led the effort for Detroit to be a welcoming city. We will continue to advocate for a better quality of life for ALL Detroiters, new and native.

Thank you again and have a blessed day.

Best regards,                                                                                                                                                                       

Hanan Yahya

Community and Resident Services Manager
Office of Council Member Raquel Castañeda-López
Detroit City Council

Downtown: 2 Woodward Avenue, Suite 1340
District Office: 1927 Rosa Parks Boulevard, Suite 110A

-----------

No matter how much Detroit has had to struggle, Detroit is still a part of the USA, and Detroit shares our spirit. I hope things improve in Detroit quickly.

And our new immigrants are welcome in Detroit.

Salute.

Tony V.

So, what the hell did fat Serena do now?

Every year its something with this chick.


Yeah, she just keeps winning...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bFVcMenS5E

She allegedly smashed her racquet into a practice court and damaged the surface, got fined $10,000.

Alleged anger, petulance...all bad.

Don't want the racquets?
Give them to the poor.

Seems to be getting 'old and cranky'.
Better "sweet Serena" reappears...the People loved her much better.

Fuck you and the rest of the racist tone police.

$10K fine? Yeah, give her a minute to look in the bottom of her tennis bag.

Y’all wanna give her the “Angry Black Woman” tag? Fine.

She’s earned the right to say fuck all of you.

https://www.vox.com/2015/3/11/8189679/serena-williams-indian-wells-racism

Your so angry, Little Larry.

What? Do you want reparations for women's sports, too?

Guess how the Rutgers men's crew team did this year compared to the women's team? The women's team finished 11th in the NCAA Championships.

They should get paid double, clearly.

Pathetic.

The men's team can't row Division 1 anymore. The oldest sports team the college had was relegated to club texm status only, about 5 years ago. Title IX.

That would be the men's team which had funded the women's team. The men's team, three members of whom now coach...Division I women's teams.

It's an example of a fairness doctrine being misapplied. The righteous wrongheadedness of the illiberal left in action.

Chew on that, Fi-fucking-Do-do!

You’d be better served to bitch about Rutgers football program because that’s where your fucking crew funding went.

I’m sure Muffy won’t mind if Todd captains the club crew.

As with many things, they failed to anticipate how the colleges would seek to apply the law. And as with many laws, they failed to build in either an experimental period or a reflection period. This is common for all legislative actions, especially those involving education and educational institutions. Even if it sometimes works, it is not because they took the time they needed to consider what they were doing.

But it is the chosen application of the law at work, not the law itself. The Div 3 college which directs its women's gymnastics program to admit 24 freshman to its team so it can expand the men's sports programs in several places is not forced to do it by Title IX - it wants what it wants, regardless of what is good for the kids or the program.

Your blaming the "illiberal left" is like a reflex, not considered thought.

New Orleans is already flooded, though the hurricane is not supposed to make landfall until Saturday.

A state of emergency has been declared.
