Liberals, especially the Hollywood liberals, progressives, especially the democratic party progressives, and democrats in general (because of Trump ya know) are all angry and indignant about the Trump administration "Zero Tolerance Policy" that has resulted in over 2,000 immigrant children being separated from their parents in the last couple months.
(Or: how many sadistic sociopaths can dance on the head of a pin?)
From Patrick Martin at wsws.org June 22: ‘US court documents reveal Immigrant children tied down, hooded, beaten, stripped and drugged’
“Court documents made public in Virginia and Texas give a glimpse of the systematic brutality being meted out to immigrant children in both public and private jails. Children are strapped down, hooded and beaten, or drugged by force, as part of the everyday procedure in what can only be called the American Gulag.
With all the dire news this week, I took a quick turn through sepia Lothlorien....
I would add the requisite Fred shot, but he's on strike.... (kibble issues).

I have just finished a long article in Truthdig by Chris Hedges that explains what has happened to our politics and nation. It is an older article so I include the link here:
The thing with sanctions is that the threat is supposed to be enough to make others comply. If you have to use sanctions, you should never have to use them against your allies. The worst case scenario is for your allies to simply ignore your sanctions threat, effectively calling your bluff.
That's what is happening today.

‘Our Climate is Changing Rapidly; It’s Time to Talk about Geoengineering’, futurism.com, Jan. 12, 2018. The author discusses several high-tech methods afoot, deconstructs most of them as to the dangers of unintended consequences, costs, and what the actual bio-chemical science of some of the ‘solutions’ would wreak. To save quoting extensively, I’ll borrow their graphics, then bring a few lines from a 2017 piece at the Guardian as explanations.
