lost in detention

OK BUT

Pyrrha being really bad at throwing non-metal things. Like she turn around and throw a wrench into a basket on a moving target. She can flip a ring with two fingers while blindfolded onto the bottle tops to win the grand prize at the fair. She throw a dart under one arm and make a perfectly good bullseye six times in a row. Team JNPR has a vine account dedicated for this reason only.
But she cannot coordinate non-metal things. It’s like a bad infomercial. She’ll toss the pancake mix to Ren and it’ll explode all over him. She’ll pass Nora her scroll charger and it’ll land five feet away from her. She’ll toss Jaune a snack after training and it’ll land on the roof. Team JNPR has dedicated a vine account for this reason only also.

Happy 23rd Birthday to one of my favorite actors Josh Hutcherson (October 12,1992).

A wonderfully talented guy with a great heart and always super nice to all the many fans he meets and can we all agree that he’s pretty much the sexiest dork on the planet?! lol

Have a fantastic birthday Josh filled with fun, laughter, family and friends. Wishing you many many many more the come ! :)

Thoughts on "Lost in Detention" and S-COMM

As I watched “Lost in Detention” I found myself asking whether Obama’s administration purposely wants to make things worse in order to push for immigration reform. Has he simply been addressing Republicans’ call for stricter enforcement so that he can turn around and demand reform? Well deportations have gone up and money has been poured into securing the border. Should we be pleased with the damage and consequences? “Collateral damage” is not permissible or excusable. How is separating families and leaving children without a parent making for a better future? How is pushing for the incarceration and deportation of illegals with little to no criminal records acceptable, when S-COMM is supposed to remove the most dangerous immigrant criminals? Does our government care more about profits for private prison contractors than the welfare and basic rights of detainees? Besides the horror stories of abuse and sexual assault in immigration detention centers like Willacy, the thing that I found most llamativo in the program was this:

“Mary wanted to fight her deportation, but she had a problem. Like the vast majority of detainees, she didn’t have an attorney to help her. Unlike in the criminal justice system, immigration detainees don’t have a guaranteed right to an attorney. Even if they have strong cases to remain in the US, most have to fend for themselves and be their own legal advocates.”

I don’t blame President Obama or hold him solely accountable for the vast number of deportations. I do think that he came into the presidency with good intentions and lofty goals, but he has found no support for reform, for honest discussion, for forgiveness and compassion. I can only imagine how frustrated he must be with the inaction and stubbornness in Congress. For now all I know is that I don’t agree with S-COMM and its expansion, and I want to learn more about Obama’s support of the program.

I feel that eventually all of our eyes will be opened to the reality of illegal immigrants and the corrupt/broken immigration system. I only ask to be a messenger, and that together we listen to reason and most importantly, to our hearts. I pray that this new civil rights movement for our immigrant brothers and sisters will bring us closer to equality and unity. We need to be brought together after so many centuries of division and power struggles. 2012 will certainly be an interesting year.
