Generations from now, they will be talking about these heart wrenching stories from @ashtynsees. Will our response be: But GDP was up?
One baby has chronic asthma and ICE CONFISCATED THE BABY’S INHALERS.
The child was in severe respiratory distress due to flu type A caused most likely by days locked “ice box”. It is kept at maybe 60 degrees, lights on 24/7, no windows, constant a/c, families sleep on the floor in cages and are normally given nothing but a reflective paper.
They are not allowed to wash or bathe. I have talked to people who said they were kept in this “ice box” for 20 days.
If the child is under 10, they are kept with their mother. If the child is under 10 and accompanied by the father, they are separated.
Over 10, they are in separate cages. (Did I really just type that!?!?) I have heard it is so crowded, there is hardly room for everyone to lie down at once.
Almost all the parents we talk to say their children barely ate while in the “ice box. ”
Most of what we see in the clinic are children with cough/colds who complain of flu-like symptoms.
This is a recipe for disaster. The flu can be fatal for young children, especially those with taxed immune systems caused by these conditions.
I have heard these very cold conditions are “to kill germs.” This sounds like how you would treat rats in a lab. I’m furious that this is how we treat children in America. — in McAllen, Texas.
The children are particularly traumatized. These are the scars of a generation. There is no undoing this without care and time.

A little girl I saw refused to eat for days and began regressively taking water only from a bottle.

She was 5.

1) Young people do not vote in Midterms. Old people do. And voter apathy it getting worse.
2) Stop what you are doing. Look at this chart. If your state has a registration deadline. REGISTER NOW!
3) The Republicans have been systematically redrawing districts to their advantage and in many states illegally. Now Trump is using the Kavanaugh fiasco to gin up his cult voters.

Kavanaugh’s Lied Summarized.…
Kavanaugh Lies
•He never attended a gathering like *this*.
•People never said it “didn’t happen.” (they said they didn’t remember being at the gathering NOT a party)
•He tries to restrict the range of possible dates to weekends (July 1 is a weekday)
•He scoffs that he didn’t live near Ford’s country club (he lived closer to it than she did)
•Drinking forms a major part of all the allegations, and facts about his history with alcohol bear on the plausibility of all three...

1) So is this how it’s going to go down? Future convo:
Kid: So in 2018 the President who was under investigation for working with Russia to win an election got to appoint a judge who had sketchy finances, lied to Congress and attempted rape?
You: Yeah, pretty much.
2) Kid: That’s how Trump was able to avoid all of the corruption in his past? And able to go on to nullify the 2020 election even though he lost?
You: Yep, pretty much.
Kid: This is why women and girls who get pregnant have to travel to California to have an abortion?
You: Yep
3) Kid: That is why a girl in my class died because her family couldn’t afford to go to California for an abortion after she was raped by a rich kid from prep school?
You: Sadly, yes.
Kid: That’s when Trump made all of our allies mad and our soldiers died without their aid?

1) My father lied about his age to fight in WWII. His sister told me the story of how he saved a young Mexican girl from being gang raped. He was 15, they were older. He walked her home to safety. When I asked him about the story he said it was just the right thing to do.
2) He quit high school when he was 16 to work for his mother and his siblings. The home she died in, he built for her when he was 16, before he went off to war.
3) He was a City Councilman for his small town. He was on the volunteer fire department, would often jump out of bed in the middle of the night to fight a fire and work the next day without complaint.

1) I’ve concluded Trump does not care about the people he is leading. All he cares about is economic metrics;
2) the metrics the 1% donors are wedded to and the metrics that his rally attendees rally around. The DOW that affects only 15% has become the measure of ‘success’. Exaggerating that 4% GDP growth is a miracle is believed because the snake salesman says it is.
3) Meanwhile people will continue to die without insurance. Insurance companies are waiting for one of their own to officially withhold care from a customer by cancelling their insurance, once the customer gets too sick.

The @gop are counting on gerrymandering to win.
The @gop are counting on votes to be suppressed.
The @gop are counting on you to ignore Kavanaugh’s extremist record.
