immigration

August 25, 2006

IT borders on the ludicrous that we are dealing with immigration, with “yearning to be free” with people flowing into the “country” but living in real towns and cities and neighborhoods.  As a people, as a world, as a country under the asshole Bush we are visiting problems that are a hundred years old: they are the same problems!  As a nation, we sell entry to the nation, but the bill is paid by who knows what.  It is measured as the GNP which could move up, down, or sideways, but the GNP has no measure at all for quality of life.  Taking the gross measure but having no notion of the moderate or small: that’s sort of like fascism: the state owns it all.  All hail the state.

It’s stupid.
