And here we have the president announcing the beginning of what he hopes will Be the end of Medicaid. Our tax dollars going to help our fellow citizens in need? Tsk tsk.. how dare you think of the well being of your fellow citizens .. your proper grasp of what it means to be a human being and having some basic shreds of humanity would mean less money for Donny’s golf trips and for his useless racist monument that he and his followers refer to as a wall. In truth Neither of these incredibly exorbitant and unnecessary costs will do anything but drain our economy. This one is gonna hit Trump’s supporters in his red states the hardest. You better believe they are already trying to blame this one on Obama or the Dems etc etc.. But not this time. They aren’t getting away with that this time.. We are not going to let them.. if children with disabilities and folks who are just struggling to make ends meet don’t get to receive the help they need we are going to make good and certain that this decision sticks to Donald Trump and this treasonous Republican Party like glue. As our fellow citizens are made to suffer we will know exactly who to blame. Truly a dark time for our nation. #classwarfare ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Being given a place of refuge after a terrible earthquake many Salvadorans have lived here in the United States for seventeen years.. these families have lived here and worked here and like our #dreamers who may be forced to leave in March, by Donald Trump, and the Republican party, many of their children know no other home. There is no humanity in this. No decency. The only small kindness here is that folks have until September 2019 to find a new place to live, work, raise their children, find schools and childcare, homes for their family dog/cat etc, sell their belongings or figure out how to send them... etc etc ..i mean.. can you imagine being told that you have one year to completely uproot your life or you will be forcefully removed from your country? This is just more of Trump’s nationalist insanity at work. #cult45 thinks they’re gonna get their jobs back now.. even as Trump resorts continue to apply for special privileges to hire international workers, even as corporations across the nation announce mass firings and as Cult 45 cheers for these deportations they think little of the welfare of these families.. they do not consider their fellow humans or their humanity. They see only a difference in their language, skin color and anything else they can pick apart to explain why they are giddy over the removal of families that have added culture and community across these United States. There is a real disconnect in a human soul that would cheer for the unethical and inhumane treatment of another human. It is hard for me to remember that some of these people are decent people they are just willfully ignorant and have swallowed propaganda trash as fact instead of the tabloid trash that it is. Some days I am able to approach the whole mess with a sense of humor and compassion but on other days my disgust outweighs my pity, and today, as I read about the looming deportation of so many human beings who have no other country to call their own, is one of those days. Shame on the Republican Party. Shame on Donald Trump. And shame on every single person who would support them. History will not be kind. #neveragainisnow#defenddaca#whereisthehumanity
