OK, not the best choice of words, but….


I really didn’t intend this to be a rant, but, there’s no way around it.  NO, I don’t like The President using the term S***hole nations, but, as a practical matter, if the shoe fits… And yes, I have and will continue to use the same terminology myself.  Here’s the practical question:  where is the benefit to the American taxpayer from bringing in people from nations who bring nothing but problems with them?  Groucho Marx once said, “I don’t want to join any club that would have me as a member.”  The corollary here, is I don’t want to import other peoples’ problems. A USMC major in Vietnam once spoke to a rifle platoon just back from “the bush” urging them to embrace the local people, to elevate their lives, to make them feel that they would be respected, honored and welcomed to and by Americans.  A Marine rifleman raised his hand to ask a question, “Major, before send them all to Harvard Medical School, do you think we could get them all to stop crapping in the streets?” Now that’s the way you ask the critical question. Period.
