How Does Trump 'Even Sleep at Night'? Cuts to Cancer Research, Head Start, and Women's Shelters Among $226 Million Diverted to Pay for Child Detention

Julia Conley, staff writer

Along with tens of thousands of children and families, cancer patients, Americans with substance abuse disorders, and victims of domestic violence are among the casualties of President Donald Trump's detention of young immigrants—according to government documents outlining the administration's plan to divert millions of dollars away from programs serving those populations.

How does he sleep at night? Very well, I’m sure, as narcissistic sociopaths are unburdened with empathy.

I had sarcastically suggested these Children were to be put to work to earn their keep as that tends to fit the worldview of the Hayek crowd.

Some months ago when I had posted it was Government regulations that finally ended Child Labor one of those “Free Market” Libertarian types insisted that regulations had nothing to do with it and it was the fact that Capitalism produced so much wealth. Children as laborers wrere no longer needed. Corporations and businesses would “regulate themselves”. The USA has one of the largest wealth gaps in history yet those with even MORE want more , and do not give a FIG about who else has to suffer so that they get more.

That a given Government might be aiding in the use of Children as slave laborer as is the case here, hardly means this “Just another sign of how evil Government is” (more of that Hayek Libertarian nonsense) but instead a reflection of just what happens when a Government has been totally co-opted by the 1 percent that continue to promote this “Government is evil” nonsense.

Great post! It almost always (99%) comes down to “follow the money”, it is about Profit.

I’m sure he sleeps fine, as he probably forgot he did it five minutes after he signed the papers.

What else would be on the minds of the criminally wealthy other than enslaving
all of us … little by little.

But shouldn’t it be the Democratic Party and its leaders shouting this from the rooftops
and calling all citizens out to march against fascism in America?

Oops! They were all busy the other day approving the GOP budget, right?

Evil, twisted, patriarchal, sadistic, amoral, death-loving aliens shouldn’t be overlooked.

Can’t rely on Dems either. We have a problem getting things done by ourselves! Had we physically fought back when he stole the election, we would not be having this constant discussion.

“Physically” suggests violence –

That would be a huge mistake as you might have noticed that even other nations
have trouble dealing with the increasing fascism of our government … due to its
violence . . . . ???

The US has a propensity for this type of shit: Recall that souther sates passed all sorts of laws to re-enslave black folks.

The similarities to Hitler’s rise to power are strikingly similar.

Denial is a part of the problem.

$226 Million More.

For detention of up to 12,000 kids.

That’s $18,833 per child.

Folks, this is just more lies, theft, and Pure Evil at work in the name of our country.

When the time comes to take back our nation from the criminals who have risen to power, be ready to act.
