My parents were among the twenty five million Europeans who voyaged to America during the period of 1880–1924. So, the concept of people fleeing their native lands was an accepted reality of my life. Of course, the ENTIRE group of people who drove out the native tribes inhabiting what we call the United States of America came from EUROPE as well as parts of Asia.The story of what is happening to about 6,000 people in France just shocks me. They are the refugees now in camps in Calais.
Each and every person in these camps,at this very moment, is being placed on trucks and buses and taken to various places in France. They will have two choices–seek asylum in France or return to their native lands. Of course, the likelihood of being granted asylum is slight. Most probably, these tired, these unwanted, these victims of our time, will most probably wind up in various parts of Africa. A lot poorer than what they were two years ago.
Thank God, my parents lived at a time when refugees were accepted to live a new life in America.

These days we worry about our Republican friends who support Donald Trump. Imagine what one must think every time the Donald man opens his mouth to utter some nonsense about why the media is against him, the elections are rigged, and why would any woman dare to charge this family man that he molested them by groping and kissing and having undesired sex? How does any decent Republican respond to comments by friends and co-workers? How does one defend the most gross, the most ignorant, the most hating person ever to seek the Republican nomination?
Some Trump supporters in Arizona were weary of trying to call uninterested people about why they should vote for Donald Trump. So, they decided to write a poem that expressed their frustration:
There once was a candidate named Trump
Who some said would never get over the hump
He wanted to make America great
In spite of Republicans who decided to skate
In the end, Trump was nobody’s chump.
Perhaps, you guys might slumber on that one about not being a chump.
