I am thankful that Tim Minchin put everything in perspective.
Mary Emerick, the Josephine County Oath Keepers’ spokeswoman, issued a statement decrying the press conference: “We are not seeing armed men with long guns in our city. We are not bringing demonstrators into the city. In fact, we carefully screen our volunteers. We have asked that if you come with a different agenda or to stir up trouble, DO NOT COME, we do not want you. We are keeping the peace. We are protecting the mine from a specific threat and we are assuring that due process takes place.”
Mary Emerick does not have the authority to ask anyone not to come to Oregon. She does not have the authority to "keep the peace". She does not have the authority to "protect the mine" from a "threat" which is not going to happen. She does not have the authority to assure that "due process takes place".
It's pretty funny that on the day they filed their appeal, thet started whining that their due process was being interfered with, when absolutely nothing of the sort was happening, or even being threatened to happen.
This letter is so bizarre to me that I don't even know what to think. It doesn't feel like it's about the same school, and nothing like this has been in my experience with the school AT ALL. I have never witnessed anything close to "misery" from anyone at the school, including the two special needs kids in my daughter's class. I have witnessed them, in particular, get extra attention, extra reminders and hugs!
republicans will do anything to destroy America!
Cruz, Paul, Cotton are part of the new unprecedented Congressional clown group whose job at this time is to discredit and disrupt anything the President proposes to do to help Americans. They are not there to do anything else. Is this the change we need in this country? I do not think so but we are stuck until Americans get wise to the fact that they have to get off their couch and VOTE. Otherwise we will continue to see our democracy dwindle and we become ruled by oligarchical fascists. Some states like Wisconsin give us a glimpse of what that would look like.
