BORDER: Let’s make it so liberals have to each adopt one illegal and pay this out of pocket, then watch how fast they switch sides!
BORDER: [4:15] – She reads talking points she doesn’t understand off her phone, intent only on “destroying” the speaker, not on gaining wisdom or knowledge.
Knowles explained an aspect of the Flores thing I hadn’t understood before. But he didn’t mention what I think is the more important point about child separation, which is that kids are being trafficked by non-relatives to game our dumb asylum laws. Separating them to determine if the adults are actually relatives is for their SAFETY.
CENSUS: “Enumeration for creating districts” [1:41] – Yeah, duh! What the blazes was SCOTUS thinking?!
CLINTON BUDDY ARRESTED: Florida billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on Saturday in New York for sex trafficking of minors. Some folks are speculating that some number of his creepy cronies are going to get outed.
One of these could be Slick Willy, who is well known for his sex addiction, but does not (at this time) have a rep for enjoying underage rape. However, in May 2016, FOX News reported that former President Bill Clinton frequently ditched his secret service detail to travel with Jeffrey Epstein on his famous “Lolita Express.” Flight logs show in on the plane at least 26 times.
KRAPERNICK: Too bad nobody at Nike bothered to look up Betsy Ross [3:35] – She was a Quaker, one of the first religious groups in America to condemn slavery as both ethically and religiously wrong in all circumstances in Britain and North America.
They spent considerable time attempting to sway public opinion on the evils of slavery, were active in the Underground Railroad, and provided education and resources for former slaves.
GREECE: The far left loses another foothold – Greece’s center-right opposition party, New Democracy, has won the nation’s general election.
DUMP STARBUCKS: They couldn’t just tell the complainer to leave? – On Independence Day, six Tempe, AZ, police officers (some of them war veterans) stopped by a local Starbucks for coffee.
After a customer allegedly complained s/he “did not feel safe” with them there, they were asked to leave and did.
The Tempe Officers Association tweeted their disappointment, then later issued this: “Since this incident came to light, the Tempe Police Department has reached out to the Starbucks Corporate Office. Starbucks stated they are aware of this incident and advised this interaction is not in line with Starbucks values and will continue to work in strengthening their relationship with law enforcement.”
Too bad for corporate that the incident went viral and reignited passion for boycotting this overly politicized, left-wing chain that donates big bucks to Planned Parenthood. Two tweets I liked:
“The only people who are uncomfortable around cops are criminals.”
“Businesses that take ANY political stance do harm to half their customers. You can get a good cup of coffee anywhere. Starbucks makes me uncomfortable now.”
LOCK YOUR DOORS: A delinquent bear pulled open an unlocked driver’s door and climbed into the car. After the door closed itself, the bear tried to dig his way out, apparently butt-shifting the car into neutral in the process. The car rolled about 100 ft down the hill, crashed, and the door popped open, freeing the bear who is still at large.
CAR SEATS: Reminder here that car seats need to be disabled (cut the straps) and replaced every five years and/or after any accident – “THIS is why you buckle your kids into their car seats correctly every SINGLE time. Even when they scream because the straps are tight. Even when they complain about the chest clip or being rear facing. We stopped for milk on the way home from preschool yesterday. We were minutes from home. Someone sped through a red light and slammed into us. You never think it will happen to you. My boys escaped without a scratch but the paramedics told me it could have been very different had I not taken the extra 2 minutes to be sure they were buckled correctly. I will be fine, my kids are fine, everything else can be replaced. Sending thanks to God for keeping us safe (along with Honda, Graco & Chicco). -Jenna Casado Rabberman”
Some things were negotiable. Car seats were not among them. Hubby and I white knuckled it for 45 minutes while #1 (now Mama Buzz) threw the mother of all tantrums. She finally shut up and accepted the restriction … until she figured out how to get out of the seat by herself. Then we had to stop on the side of the highway for some serious yelling, threats of dire consequences, and rebuckling. Luckily, if you fight it out with the eldest, the younger ones tend to see it as the thing to do and just go along. In fact, my second one would get really agitated if she saw any of the adults were not buckled in before the car was moving.
