Border Invasion in Texas. Confiscation in New York. End of Democracy. Less Labor.

What do a couple hundred young male illegal immigrants do when they tear down a border fence and come up against twenty US soldiers? Do they attack? Or do they retreat so they won’t get shot?

Last week they attacked. The soldiers (Texas National Guard) were unarmed and were overrun. The illegal immigrants rushed the border wall where the Border Patrol let them through, processed them, and turned them loose into the country to go anywhere they desire.

That’s our immigration policy today. Tear through razor wire, beat up soldiers, then plead asylum and get a free ride to the state of your choice. If it’s a sanctuary state or city, you are free to commit crimes and still not get deported.

Meanwhile in New York, the Attorney General Letitia James has a U-Haul packed and ready to move into the Penthouse at Trump Tower. And she has plans for her new winter home in Palm Beach, Florida, the $18 million Mar-a-Lago.

President Biden and VP Harris are campaigning across the country. Their main theme is a warning that if the Republican Donald Trump is elected president again it will be the “end of democracy.”

I guess the “end of democracy” would mean citizens may not get to vote for the candidate of their choice for President. That seems to be the reason Democrats in a few states are determined to remove Trump from the ballot and prevent Third Party candidates, including Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., from getting on the ballot. And they are cheering for prosecutors in Georgia, Florida and New York to convict their main opponent of multiple felonies so he will be in jail before the November election. Yes, that’s their plan to prevent Trump from ending democracy.

Does it seem odd that President Biden is determined that by 2032, we can only buy Electric Vehicles? By then he will be 89 and driving around Delaware in his ’67 Corvette. If he can afford the gas. By 2050, the U.S. would resemble Cuba in the 1990s where all the cars were 1950s models. Biden’s dream will become a nightmare where EVs are parked because there’s not enough electricity from solar and wind to charge the batteries. And the cars and trucks we want to drive will be parked because gasoline and diesel are either regulated out of business or are taxed so high no one can afford to drive anywhere. Did someone mention a Bloodbath in the auto industry?

Senator Bernie Sanders came up with a plan to raise wages and salaries by at least 25% with a 32-hour work week. Actually, it would not raise income at all, only the hourly rate. You would run out of money faster because you would have 3-day weekends to spend it shopping, vacationing, and going to ball games and Taylor Swift concerts. While Sen. Sanders is contemplating a 32-hour work week and a $20 minimum wage, perhaps he should consider this question:  How many hours per week will a robot work?

Historic quote by Will Rogers:

“One of the evils of democracy is you have to put up with the man you elect whether you want him or not. That’s why we call it democracy.” DT#1953, Nov. 7, 1932
