  1. The treatment of children of 'illegal' immigrant families in USA is indefensible. Is it therefore significant that the news reports today that USA has left/is leaving the Human Rights Council? One of the reasons given - allegedly! - is the bias against Israel, which speaks volumes for USA. Any respect one had for the USA started with the election of that man as President. He has destroyed the dignity of that office and his country apparently supports him. Have just listened (on the radio)to a USA spokesman attempting to defend the separation of children from their parents by claiming it prevents the children being 'incarcerated'! Has he seen some of the conditions of these children, not to mention the possible, long term, trauma. might one quote the adage, there are none so blind as those who will not see. Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: Jeremiah 5:21 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear you indeed, but understand not; and see indeed, but perceive not. Isaiah 6:9-10
  2. Give teachers guns, Yeh, right.They could make sure they are not seen! Raise the age at which guns can be bought from 18 to 21? It's a mental; problem, not a gun one! What utter tripe emanates from the mouth of the President of the USA. What's more worrying it's not only tripe it's dangerous tripe.As far as I'm concerned there is a mental problem (possible combined with a financial one - how much did the NRA contribute to T's campaign) Who calls the shots here? The shots that are killing school children with increasing frequency in the USA. The answer is not more guns but fewer. Why not start by banning the sale of all automatic weapons and adapters to the general public. Surly there were only designed for use by the military. Stricter regulations, closer checks, fewer gun shops. The mental problem lies firmly with the President himself. The solution lies with the American people. Get rid of him. He is a President whose only aim in office seems to be undoing all Obama's actions. Oh, and doing what the NRA want. I refute the argument re the constitution saying every American has the right to carry arms. I do believe that was intended to be appropriate at the time of writing. I am sure the Founding Fathers did not envisaged today's situation. Other 'laws' have been amended. Why not that one? Might one remind the Americans of the preamble to that constitution? We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
  3. So, another one 'let go', another one who didn't sing from the same hymn sheet. How many now! Bet the queue of people wanting a job in the White House is shortening by the minute. Let's hope the pennsylvania result bodes well for the future.
