The other leftist plaint is that we should be compassionate. How is it compassionate to send kids to wander through Mexico unescorted to our border? The dangers, both man-caused and natural, are too obvious to enumerate here.
I saw a tweet from a leftish sort of dude that said that we should accept these kids because of . . . Darwin. Somehow these kids represent the survival of the fittest. News flash, these are not the skills you are looking for. The fact that their parents risk their lives and the fact that they lack useful economic skills means that they are unlikely to become productive to our society.
Obama keeps talking about immigration reform as the only way to fix this problem. Another lie, of course, because the root of the problem is the perception that the children will be allowed to stay. Ramp up deportation, don't let them cross in the first place. Maybe even fund Mexico to secure their border.
What You Should Be Reading
- CDR Salamander, if you care at all about what is happening to our military and the Navy in particular. He is particularly adept at deconstructing the ludicrousity of the diversity bullies. But their latest antics leave him speechless, the comments are very funny to this Navy vet. My favorite: A collection of the most intelligent non-PC minds in the universe COULD. NOT. POSSIBLY. MAKE. THIS. SHIT. UP.--even if they tried for a thousand years--yet it all comes naturally, automatically, reflexively to the PC crowd.
- Dalrock shows that divorce continues to plague America, despite what some people are asserting. I applaud his close look at the actual census numbers.
- In much better news, Carpe Diem reports that there are over 3000 breweries in America today. The majority of Americans live within 10 miles of a local brewery, and with almost 2,000 planning breweries in the BA database, that percentage is only going to climb in the coming years.
