‘Save Money. Live Better. Do As You’re Told.’

This mural depicting Il Douche greets children at Camp Walmart. That should keep appetites suppressed and food expenses down. Arbeit macht frei, bitches. | Department of Health and Human Services via Jacob Soboroff (MSNBC) and Kevin Drum (Mother Jones)

As a child I went to summer camp in Texas. I didn’t like it.

I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t like this modern version, either, especially if I didn’t hablo the Inglés and didn’t know when (or if) my parents would be coming to take me home.

Time to call the congressional delegation again. Lord, are they gonna be tired of hearing from the O’Gradys.

“Go back to Ireland already before we put you in a camp,” they’ll mutter after hanging up. Ná bíodh eagla orm.

    That looks a mural you would see in North Korea.

    That mural is unbelievable. Cult of the personality, eh? So shall we henceforth refer to Orangus Maximus as Ill Duce, Dear Leader, or der Fuehrer?

      I think “Orange Hitler” gets more and more accurate each day. And the federal employees who yank these kids out of their parents arms just say, “I am only following orders.” Where might we have heard this before? Sadly I doubt there will ever be any Nuremberg Trials for these criminals, the guy who replaces OH will just want to “move on” like Obama did. Gawd help us all.

      “Nothing to see here, move along, move along.” And as per usual, the new executive will decline to surrender any of the expanded authority claimed by his predecessor. And so it goes.

        Pretty sweet, PO’G. The wife is up here after another successful academic shindig in Sicily and we have a little break before our next clients arrive. So ride, eat, sleep, repeat with some cycling on TV thrown in via Eurosport streaming.
        Currently there’s the Tour of Slovenia, Tour de Suisse, Route de Occitane and the Giro U23. Some of the commentators can’t even keep ’em straight and remember who is in what peloton.
        Our favorite bici d’epoca event’s next weekend to boot! http://www.lamitica.it/

    No sense of humor, these guys. A fascist with a sense of humor would be warehousing these squirts in vacant Toys ‘R’ Us stores.

    Glad TS Bud,what is left of it, is coming to visit you today. We had a light rain all right, with thunder storms predicted for today, especially if we get a little sun to set off the convection.

    Aw, come on. We aren’t the first nation to separate kids from their parents.
