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.
What do you mean what's going on with the open order? The border is not open, it's very secure. Nobody is getting in that shouldn't be - haven't you been listening to Joe and Kamala and Alejandro? It's fine! Everything's fine! The idea that anything is not fine is just a right-wing extremist white supremacist conspiracy theory. But I am interested in the idea of welcoming lots of Venezuelans, let's see if they're enamored enough of socialism that they'll support the Democrats.
That's it Zac. Those rascally red state governments just aren't being sufficiently harsh with illegals to disincentivize their actions. Not that there isn't some truth there. Socially and politically conservative Texas has been remarkably accepting of massive numbers of illegals for 40+ years. While saying the laws should be enforced, as one who believes in rule of law would.
In stark contrast, progressives in New York and Massachusetts have consistently mouthed empty platitudes about being sanctuary states. Until they have about 5% per capita of what Texas has experienced for decades. when they insist the "refugees" be sent elsewhere. You know, progressives being such staunch proponents of law and order. It's almost as though you progressives have been lying about caring about poor migrants just as much as you lie about everthing else.
DO you see it yet. There is no way back from what the Democrats are doing. A massive welfare state, ever increasing crime rates, third world diseases for you and your children. increasing drug deaths. higher taxes, economic collapse, a great depression. This is intentional and by the time enough people actually see this and realize this it will be impossible to stop or reverse.
End all spending on non-citizens except the cost to deport. Rigorously enforce our immigration laws. Make it illegal to hire anyone who is not a citizen. It's past time for mass deportation. Head um up, move um out.
The Democrats (Obama/Clinton mafia) sense that we will elect a Republican president and that is why Biden has started the process to citizenship starting that with 500,000 Venezuelans. Expect more and faster. This will be the nail in our coffin. Speaking of coughing, none of the "migrants" have been checked for diseases but they will all have children in your schools spreading polio, measle and god knows what else. Build back better!
