This Isn’t My Country Anymore

“On Sunday, a day we as a nation set aside to honor fathers and the bonds of family, I was among the millions of Americans who watched images of children who have been torn from their parents. In the six weeks between April 19 and May 31, the Department of Homeland Security has sent nearly 2,000 children to mass detention centers or foster care. More than 100 of these children are younger than 4 years old. The reason for these separations is a zero-tolerance policy for their parents, who are accused of illegally crossing our borders.

I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.”

From an opinion piece by Laura Bush in the Washington Post.

Are you ashamed yet?

I’m embarrassed to call myself American.

I’m progressive but don’t support Bernie. Anyone who voted against the Magnitsky Act, hired Tad Devine to disrupt the Democratic party is a Russian agent - looking at you Bernie. I’m an application developer. I enjoy plucking the strings of a classical guitar and reading a good book. I have a special interest in nutrition. Pro tip: it’s the refined carbs, stupid. If you support Trump - fuck you - and go to hell.
