This July 4th, as we reflect on who we are and who we want to be as Americans, I decided to share the story of my father’s immigrant family. There’s not much to tell. And that’s the point, really.
On July 4th, we celebrate the document drafted by immigrants to these shores and their children which enumerated their reasons for breaking the law and rebelling against their country. As we do so, immigration stances and policies put forth the by the White House stand under scrutiny. We should be taking a hard look at them. We should be trying to get some perspective.
So much I want to blog about the current immigration policy horrors by my government. But my current life schedule is not permitting it at the moment. So frustrating.
Well, at least I can try to give us all some words of encouragement.
This photo sums up a lot of my feelings on the recent North Korea summit.

Look at the photo. Who’s really in charge?
Some ramblings from this morning’s news. Not my usual.
Tillerson’s gone. In kicking him to the curb, Trump once again proves some hypotheses I have been testing. To be honest, I would rather he wouldn’t keep doing that. I would be okay with being proven wrong.
Oh heck no. Today, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders assured reporters that, regardless of whether Jared Kushner can get a permanent security clearance or not, he will continue to do the work he has been doing all along for the White House. Which means that if Chief of Staff John Kelly’s Friday night memo is enacted, Kushner would be operating without any security clearance. And that’s A-Okay with the White House.
