The president of this country is a crook; a sleazy thug and some of you just don't care

You'd rather poke and prod Robert Mueller.

The president's son is saying Mueller is mentally retarded. The public is saying, "oh my, is the poor man sick?" I'm sure Mr. Mueller and his family feel very gratified by all this. This is now what a person can expect when he does the RIGHT thing in this country??

Mueller did his job. Congress?  Pfft.  As if. 

And those of you who are wringing your hands about whether Mueller is sick or whatever? The man DID HIS JOB. He's not one who has ever needed the spotlight, has, in fact, stayed out of it. Isn't comfortable in it. If you were disappointed because he couldn't remember exactly where in a 450 page report to find the data someone wanted to know (someone IN CONGRESS who SHOULD HAVE READ THE REPORT), then bless your heart. Give him a break. The fact remains that Trump has broken the law. This whole mess is about TRUMP BREAKING THE LAW. Talk about Trump using methods of distraction and now we're doing the same thing forgetting that this isn't about Mueller now. He's done his job, and then had to come back and be hammered by rude Republican temper tantrum tossing politicians who LOVE the spotlight even when making fools of themselves because they couldn't take the time to read the report.

And when you think people have gone as low as they can go, you can count of Fox News to go lower. Without ANY evidence supporting his allegations, one of Fox's assholes starts the rumor mill rolling with the words "Onset Dementia" with regard to Mr. Mueller. Sadly, I've been close and up front with dementia. If you want a clue as to what it looks like, look into the eyes. Where there was once a sparkle of life, dignity and expression of feeling - there's now no light whatsoever. I suggest taking a look into the eyes of the president if you want to know what I'm talking about. In addition to the dementia I believe is there, you'll see the very vivid reality of evil. Purest evil.

He deserves being tossed into a cage - I pray for that day.

Last Night at the Lights for Liberty Vigil in Boone, NC

Donald and I attended our local Lights for Liberty vigil last night.

On our way into town, stopping to admire the flowers along our driveway I couldn't help thinking of children unable to enjoy simple things such as these, or a hug from parents while locked in cages by the most evil among us.

Locked in cages.

In the United State of America.

Words I never thought I'd hear, or say.

Because, after all, seeking asylum is NOT a crime.

These childred DIED in CUSTODY - in our government's custody:

Darlyn Cristabel Cordova-Valle: She died on September 29 in our government’s custody. She was 10.

Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquin: She died on December 8 in our government’s custody. She was 7

Felipe Gómez Alonzo: He died on Christmas Eve in our government’s custody. He was 8.

Juan de León Gutierréz: He died on April 30 in our government’s custody. He was 16.

Wilmer Josué Ramírez Vásquez: He died on May 14 in our government’s custody. He was 2 1/2.

Carlos Gregorio Hernández: He died on May 20 in our government’s custody. He was 16.

This is on us.

And will ALWAYS be on us.

The shame and the horror, all coming from corruption in our leadership.

It's nice  having a partner who is as outraged and heartbroken about the state of the country as I am and who will stand by me in protest. Don Barley, I love you to the moon and back.

THIS is what democracy looks like.

Nancy Wells Shannon is a hero of mine

 And then, breakfast for supper

There's strength in numbers. 

I felt that strength, along with hope, at last night's vigil. 

I will continue prodding each of you to join with your community members in participating in events of this sort as they happen. 

If we want our country to be a place we're proud of, we need to fight for it. 

These vigils and protests may seem silly to some of you. 

Some may think it's a waste of time. 

I think you're wrong. 

I've read comments from some of you at Facebook saying things like "Why aren't we taking to the streets about this?" 

Well - DO IT.

Lights For Liberty

Have you read, or listened to, what Yazmin Juarez told Congress? 

The story of her 19 month old daughter is chilling.

If there is an event near you tomorrow protesting this nation’s immigration policy, please consider participating. 

Immigrants seeking asylum in the U.S. are NOT illegal.

You can click here to check for locations where protests are planned:

I know there are people who still feel as though protesting is a waste of time.

I refuse to believe that.

There is strength in numbers. The more people adding their presence to the protests, the more effective.

I agree with Margaret Mead's philosophy - "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Don't leave it all up to someone else. 

Show your support. 

It's YOUR country. 

Fight for it. 

Don't look away.
