The trumpette in you MUST blame someone, anyone. But face the facts (children ARE separated from their parents at the border) ? Never! Rather die than admit something under the trumpian sun is wrong.

Over 80% of the children are unaccompanied as many of their parents were killed either in the country of origin or along the way. Yes, the US is SO mean, providing them with food and shelter, education, sports, medical care, etc.

Child trafficking is a clear danger as many of the adults dragging them over, have other ideas for them.

THE GIRL WAS NOT SEPARATED FROM HER MOTHER!!!
The real story is so astonishing, just about the opposite of what the tear jerk crowd would like to provoke:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5869829/Father-two-year-old-face-child-separation-crisis-speaks-out.html

Get a load of THIS!!!

Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.

Denis said his wife and daughter were never separated by border control agents and remain together.

Sandra was part of a group that were caught by Border Patrol agents after making their way across the Rio Grande river on a raft. She set out on her journey from Puerto Cortes, Honduras to the U.S. at 6am on June 3 and allegedly paid $6,000 for a Coyote.

Hernandez said he did not support his wife's decision to make the journey with their young daughter in her arms and never got to properly say goodbye. 

He revealed that his wife had previously mentioned her wish to go to the United States for a 'better future' but did not tell him nor any of their family members that she was planning to make the trek.

'I didn't support it. I asked her, why? Why would she want to put our little girl through that? But it was her decision at the end of the day.'

He said that Sandra had always wanted to experience 'the American dream' and hoped to find a good job in the States.


Now WHO are using children to further their OWN agenda? Irresponsible mothers who don't inform their husbands they are dragging the kids to an uncertain journey, in this case found ON A RAFT on the Rio Grande.

I am really so disgusted not only reading this account but the press for twisting it to make the laws to blame. I really hope that there is a motherhood test that such bi**hes have to undergo as part of their screening, not only get booted back to where they came from but will have to pay all the time and trouble they put everyone through. Send the bill to Honduras. The father, BTW, is not poor, has a stable job.

It’s just a jacket picture, right? Today’s WP article says just the same. Skip it and go the the comments section, you will see why it does matter after all. Perception is everything.

Staying at home, suffering from tummy troubles… yet getting comforted by this very fine Dufay disc:

Let Bruckner sooth your troubles , or just a comforting silence. :)

The First from this set was the first ever Bruckner symphony I bought and probably still my favourite.

I have the  complete Jochum, Karajan, Haitink and Chaiily sets Several Böhm,Giulini,Karajan and Haitink .
 The first Jochum is my favorite.There is of course the famous fourth with Böhm and Karajan with the Wiener and Giulinis ninth with the Chicago.To my surprise I liked the fourth with Chailly also.
I think that Bruckner is undervalued but not by me.
The first movement,Scherzo gives me a sense of joy.I love Bruckner and if I had to choose between Mahler and Bruckner,you may guess. ;)

Beterschap!  :)

Wand was a wonderful Bruckner conductor. I was privileged to see his last concert in London (Symphony 9).

Not that you're hanging fire over it, Jeffrey . . . but I should give the Tubin Third a listen at last, and report.
Most definitely Karl and I look forward to hearing what you think!
