Martha you seem to forget how America destabilized and destroyed the democracies of South America and these refugees are fleeing the fallout from America's war crimes. I guess context isn't important with ABC.

Need to change the name of this show. George is not hosting more times than he is over the last year. Also, I understand Martha was trying to get FEMA to explain why they have a stockpile of masks, but the sensational anxiety-inspiring language used made me think I accidentally played Fox News. No comments on any more.since I shut it down there. For good

There's a significant concern amongst teachers about the recent rise in anxiety in our students. Some teachers believe this is due to a significant increase in screen time. This could be a cause of a lot of things, including school shootings. Isn't that an easier problem to fix on a personal level?
