It's a shame

I wasn't sure I wanted to or needed to weigh in on the decisions being made in America lately, but I feel compelled to say something.

It really saddens me that decisions are being made for political effect, with no consideration for the real effects those decisions will have on innocent people.

A person in charge of education who doesn't even believe in the public education system? A person in charge of the EPA who never believed in the EPA? The elimination of financial regulations that only aim to protect those who Wall Street would readily take advantage of? Judicial hacks who deny women the right to decisions on their own bodies?

The 90 day ban against travellers from select countries is a real doozer. Especially when you consider that all the terrorists that come out of the middle east to inflict harm on America came from countries not even on the list. Saudi Arabia anyone? What strikes me though is the sheer cruelty of this ban. Families broken apart because a member can't come to America to be reunited with the rest of their family. Where's the compassion? Professionals who already work for big corporations in America, green card or visa in hand, no longer allowed to enter the country. Does this government not realize how much this could damage the economy in the long term, when you can't even hire the best of the best globally (like the rest of the world can)?

One can only reason that these policies do not result in the 'great America' so often touted by this narcissist.

I agree one hundred per cent except I think Goresuch will be a risk worth taking. I believe he has a mind of his own and is used to exercising it. Besides if he ran for president he would win hands down.
