Even some Republicans oppose Trump's 'zero tolerance' June 20, 2018 - 10:10am

By ROY PULLAM

Some things are so vile and so cruel that it is hard for me to wrap either my brain or heart around it.  I am 73-years-old.  I have seen tragedy after tragedy occur in this world, and I always said, "Thank God it cannot happen here."  Early settlers in America spoke of this country being a city on a hill.  We prided ourselves on social justice even though we mistreated Blacks, Japanese and Indians.  People of conscious addressed these wrongs even at the cost of liberty and life.  

From The Washington Post: Yarmuth opposes House GOP plan that would cut Medicare, Social Security to balance budget June 20, 2018 - 9:27am

“The 2019 Republican budget scraps any sense of responsibility to the American people and any obligation to being honest. Its repeal of the Affordable Care Act and extreme cuts to health care, retirement security, anti-poverty programs, education, infrastructure, and other critical investments are real and will inflict serious harm on American families.” -- John Yarmuth, D-Louisville, budget committee ranking member.

From The Washington Post: President Trump seems to be saying more and more things that aren’t true June 20, 2018 - 9:14am

By ASHLEY PARKER

He’s done it on Twitter. He’s done it in the White House driveway. And he’s done it in a speech to a business group.

President Trump — a man already known for trafficking in mistruths and even outright lies — has been outdoing even himself with falsehoods in recent days, repeating and amplifying bogus claims on several of the most pressing controversies facing his presidency. 

Texas AFL-CIO Blasts Child Detentions June 19, 2018 - 5:43pm

The Texas AFL-CIO called on the White House to end the unconscionable detention of children who have been taken from their parents in the name of immigration enforcement.

“Tearing children from parents’ arms as a bargaining chip to fund a border wall and pass other misguided immigration priorities is unacceptable,” Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy said. “We have ‘zero tolerance’ for making Texas a headquarters for child detention centers. The law does not require it and working Texans will not stand for it.”

State AFL-CIO backs Walker in the First District June 20, 2018 - 12:14am

AFT Local 1360

The nonpartisan Cook Political Report says Rep. James Comer, R-Tompkinsville, looks like a lock to keep his First District House seat.

His challenger, Democrat Paul Walker of Murray, naturally disagrees.

Anyway, the Murray State University English professor is glad to have organized labor in his corner.
