“Southern Cross”? No, not the CSN&Y mini-hit from 1982. I’m talking about the “unprecedented crisis” of undocumented migrants crossing our southern border. It is real, and it is disingenuous to deny it, ignore it, or excuse it. Don’t take my word for it. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas confirms that illegal crossings have reached their highest levels in more than two decades. No way to spin that. It is a pressing national security matter that must be addressed. Migrants should not be demonized or scapegoated, and the issue should not be demagogued, but the U.S. has a right and a duty to control its borders. No, a wall is not the answer. And no, this issue—legitimate and pressing as it is—is not the primary driving force extending the endless U.S. pandemic. But it is a COVID component. And controlling our borders is rightly part of controlling the virus. No denying that.
Saigon revisited. Don’t tell me it’s not analogous, because it absolutely is. Kandahar has fallen to the Taliban, and Kabul is next. Starting in Korea and now extending for seven decades around the world, we have pretty well perfected the art of getting into senseless wars that drain our people and our treasure, and ultimately for no apparent reason. We’re not nearly as good at getting out of these fiascos. Yeah, it was long since time for the U.S. to leave Afghanistan, but let’s not express surprise at the result. Biden was wrong when he said that a quick Taliban takeover was not “inevitable” and in fact was “highly unlikely.” It was as predictable as sunset.
A third shot authorized for seven million immunocompromised Americans? Sure thing. This will be necessary for everyone in the near future. Me? Here’s my manly left arm. Do what you will with it.
The numbers remain rock-solid. Get vaxxed. Don’t die. It really is that clear and that simple. So wuzzamattahwichyoo?!
Hey, expectant Dallas moms who had planned to give birth at Parkland. Change of plans. No room for you.
“Comply. Don’t die.” OK, wouldn’t that go for Ashli Babbitt? Hey, Black the Blue, right? There is no depth to which LeGrande L’Orange will not sink.
Census confirms that the percentage of non-Hispanic white Americans has fallen by six percent over the last decade, while the number of Americans “of color” has risen by nine percent. You know how science is always looking for the “Unifying Theory of Everything”? Well, this may be as close to explaining everything as we will ever get. Our National Insanity—virtually all of it—is being fueled by WF: White Freakout.
