This "System" person is pretty clever...
Read this and immediately thought of the break-in that Eod had in one of his previous residences.
(from a Cracked article about postal workers)
Has the West the Will to Survive?
So he starts out with an idea of immigrants: "Lets spend all our money, hitchhike, ride freight trains, and walk for thousands of miles all for a chance to be kicked out the the U.S. along with our kids!" That definitely sounds like a plan that thousands of asylum-seekers and refugees are doing just to make Trump look weak. Yep. Flawless logic.
Then moves on to suggest that brutality and ethnic cleansing were the only way for the Manifest Destiny to be realized, and he waxes poetic about how everyone is a pussy now.
sigh. Old Uncle Pat never fails to amaze me.
But throughout the article he commits the all-too-common sin of mixing up illegal immigration with people seeking asylum.
Economic issues in Central and South America started before the Monroe Doctrine and only got worse as multinational companies with U.S. backing took over much of the trade/labor. Then throw in several countries stuck in decades-long civil wars (that various U.S. agencies may-or-may-not have had a hand in) and many urban areas run by gangs. All of that, and we wonder why people are willing to risk coming to the border, standing on our doorstep for a chance to be reviewed for asylum?
You can have a heart AND be strong.
At the moment we're doing neither.
Truth is harsh, and history is an unpleasant subject. Most wars have been fought over land. If you want to keep land, you must be willing, and able, to defend it.
Meh. Skimmed through it but didn't see anything worth thinking about.
I mean, it's basically "In defense of ruthlessness". If you agree with Buchanan that acting ruthless towards immigrants is justified but you're uncomfortable with actually doing it, maybe that article helps you sleep at night. But if you don't already agree with his conclusions, nothing in there is meant for you.
Invading countries are different than refugees.
Coups are different than asylum-seekers.
Dissidents are different than immigrants.
I believe we have a problem with two out of six of those things I mentioned. Can you guess which two?
