Some still detained at Atlanta airport amid confusion over Trump order

Another day, another blisteringly stupid executive order.

Yep. And I have so-called "Christian" friends on Facebook who not only see no problem with this, but actually think Trump was sent by God to save America!

God help us all ...

How many are detained on a daily basis?

Probably a bunch while they verify the travelers paperwork/visa/passports etc.

WHY isn't this executive Order NOT analyzed and Proper "DIRECTIVES" given to whatever front line folks must inform such a loosely worded directive done with such a FLARE Photo OP!! SO Trump's utter's his edicts and expects regular folks and their administrating folks to KNOW how to enforce it?? It's insane!! Meanwhile innocent folks get caught up in such incompetence by Government.

Having said this above.. I wouldn't be surprised if this happens for many months ..since Trump has basically fired with no replacements for truly life and death situations that occur over seas! Ambassador's NOT replaced and when they do get replaced.. there will be NO one left behind to train/inform nor orientate them! It's going to be a total mess.. and hate to say this.. Poor Haley (UN Rep. for USA) will be left holding the bag when asked to explain why America isn't able to step up to the place and assist American's who travel over seas and get into critical situations.. NO body will be there to HELP Americans.. Just you wait.. Complaints, senseless innocent American's will be abandoned.... This scenario is far more likely than NOT!!

American's that travel.. best be aware of the RISKS..that isn't just regular travellers.. BUT Corporate giants and other's with POWER that will suffer consequences for incompetent Administration!!

I do worry a lot... But Trumpeter's love the sound of Clean the swamp.. yet have no clue that leaving the swamp empty of protections and defence..allows really bad things to happen..and your collective pants are down at your ankles!! LOL..I've always wanted to use that analogy

Daily reminder that a majority of voters did not actually vote for him.

Yes, unfortunately many of them get their messages for group think from deceitful men in the pulpit, deceitful politicians & from deceitful news sources.
A 2nd weekend for the new administration brings us a new round of issues & a resultant 2nd growing public backlash over more ill thought policy moves.
Folks, get used to it as this chaos is going to be standard going as we move ahead.
The betting odds survey against donald trump completing his term found below is from Jan. 20th. The odds have only moved higher since then in view of his disastrous first week.

Gamblers Are Betting on President Trump's Impeachment

Keep in mind that his margin of victory in three states, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was about 100,000 votes, combined. Had these states gone to Clinton, she'd have won. We're talking about a president who was elected thanks to a number of voters who could have fit in Sanford Stadium.

Well, I will also add that the silence from many of my Facebook friends who voted for Trump is deafening. I can only assume this means many of them are regretting their decision. At least I'd like to think so. We know for a fact that many, MANY people voted not for Trump, but against Hillary. He's done nothing in his first week in office to win confidence among these fence-riders.
