A post on TomCat's blog. A couple of happenings this week which seem to call for the intervention of the Greek Furies.

thank you, I agree, the biggest concern I have is the few voices (but seeming to become more common) is the "normalizing" of this so-called minority president we have now

Furies: o.m.g. Such travesties, and tragedies!! Such heartbreaking stories.
I believe the Resistance is spreading, as with the incident of DeVos trying to get into a school yesterday.

Did you read about the Japanese PM going to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier by HIMSELF??
As dt's the Head Travesty for starters, we must RESIST! and his minions.

Alecto: Letemps once spent 5 months for trafficking $20 worth of drugs, which "coincidentally" happened to be the time he already spent in jail awaiting trial (it's never shorter than that, is it :evil:) and then spent half of his life behind bars for something he didn't do because the public defender was asleep on the job/couldn't be bothered to do a decent job. He has been cleared of this, but now ICE wants to keep him in custody because of his criminal past? Give me a break. Do these people working in the justice department and ICE have their last bit of decency and humanity beaten out of them? Or is not having any part of the job description? Alecto, you first need to beat some decency and humanity back into those bureaucrats?

The Baltimore Sun article also underlines this loss of decency and humanity by hiding behind "the rules"or "the orders". By following them without thought, they can avoid thinking about what they personally are dong to another human being by following, i.e. interpreting, rules and orders. Thinking about it might make them very uncomfortable, it might make them realize that what they are doing is wrong, that the order or rule is wrong. Not thinking is a personal choice, as is doing nothing. We all need to think, dare to stand strong in our own convictions and resist those that are hurtful, (deliberately) cruel and inhuman.

Just following orders wasn't good enough a defense in the Mai Lai Massacre, shouldn't be here when they all signed an oath of allegiance to the constitution to work for the government.

Conservative Trump voters in No. CA are horrified by current wave of deportations because it may mean no one to harvest their crops, like happened with apples in WA a couple of years ago before Obama ordered folks not to split up families in deportations, et al.

Thanks Joanne--the furies and more are well justified.
