US opens new mass facility in Texas for migrant children

Quote
“All the new facilities will be considered temporary emergency shelters, so they won’t be subject to state child welfare licensing requirements.”

What could possibly go wrong?

And why would anybody suspect them of ulterior motives not in the children's best interests?!

Happy Father's Day, one and all.

Take time to breathe.

And shit.   Two words for you fellahs in "late middle age":   chia seeds.

As for keenwa, I wish it could have stayed in Peru.   I won't even say what a quinoa seed looks like after it's cooked.   (sideshow Bob shudder)

Mine? What mine?

Not that missiles are not still a problem.

What does it tell us that the American public have yet to see one shred of credible evidence that Iran directed these latest attacks?   Pompeo and Bolt-head are enemies of truth and reason, like so many in the Washington cesspool.

In the words of Roman Senator and historian Tacitus:

Quote
Truth is confirmed by inspection and delay; falsehood by haste and uncertainty.   

Says that divulging evidence to the public is not high priority

Just a guess

Didn't Trump say something in a speech about "transparency"? 

Not that His Transparency has ever read Tacitus or could tell you who he was.

Nice clear exposition of how history repeats itself.

Sen. Cotton will be cheering the amnesiacs onward.

Post picks on Cotton....

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/06/16/danger-tom-cotton/

BTW, kudos to Japan and Germany for maintenance of some skepticism regarding the grainy and ambiguous video purported to be Iranians removing a limpet mine.  Why are more officials not shouting the obvious question:  why do all the eyewitnesses on the tanker report a projectile attack, not a mine?? 

Cotton's "two strikes and we're done" idiocy makes even John Bolton look relatively sane.

n 2012, the average American taxpayer making $50,000 per year paid just $36 towards the food stamps program and about $6 per year for the rest of the social safety net programs. Republicans say this is too much — cut it!

Corporate welfare, however, costs the average American family a staggering $6,000 a year in subsidies to Republican-friendly big business. The bottom-line is that American families are paying $6,000 or more per year to subsidize giant transnational corporations that are already making billions in profit. In the past decade alone, corporations have doubled their profits on our buck.

Here is my main takeaway from this:

All cases were the result of investigations conducted by the St. Lawrence County Social Services Fraud Unit, the District Attorney Fraud Investigator, and the St. Lawrence County District Attorney’s Office, with assistance from the St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department, the Ogdensburg Police Department, the Massena Police Department, the Gouverneur Police Department, and other agencies.

Sherriff Kevin Wells stated that he “is proud of the professionalism and participation of the Sheriff’s Department in carrying out this operation, which is critical to deterring abuse of the taxpayers and ensuring that these critical resources go to those in need.”

The DA noted that citizens may anonymously report incidents of fraud in St. Lawrence County.


Did you see the list of agencies used to recover one hundred grand?

Did you see how folks are encouraged to turn in their neighbors who for the most part appear to be supplementing their benefits to make ends meet?

This is America.
