We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Maggiesfarm and its loyal readers will be interested (and flummoxed) to learn that the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Complex blocks Maggiesfarm on it WiFi link to the internet because of Maggiesfarm’s “adult” content, which I suppose refers to all the porn videos the site links to.
Well, this time around they won't be able to claim asylum b/c they have to claim asylum in the first safe country they pass through. Mexico has offered them work permits, education for their children, etc. which they turned down. They already have given up their right to claim asylum in the U.S. It's over.
In fact, I just read a report this morning where some of the caravan people were giving up and going home.
Now there's an area where better rules could help instantly. No asylum plea should be heard at all if it's first made after someone already has crashed the border. There are border spots specially designated to take asylum pleas. And certainly any plea should be denied on the spot if made by someone in a group that has already turned down asylum in the intervening country, Mexico. Time to quit pretending this is about asylum in the first place. If there are good reasons to increase the immigration quota dramatically, asylum isn't one of them.
I disagree with asylum being forced on us by the globalist and elite. We should end it not mend it. I would guess that probably 80% or more of those who came here under asylum rules lied through their teeth to gain asylum. We are dupes and easily taken advantage of. End asylum. Reconsider all past asylum recipients and deport if they lied.
