Before You get All Worked Up

{although I do admit, these are wacko times}

No need to go ballistic over bad info, so maybe it is worth examining just a little bit further.  I am not sure which came first the sensational half truths and non truths, or people hungering for reasons to go nuts, be hysterical and maybe hurt property and other people.

It is pretty stupid, whatever the case.  It is dangerous and less fun than things that are fun.

Here are some examples.  You do not have to like the people being accused of all these things, but you cannot be calling people kkk who aren't, nazi and all that when it is unsubstantiated and false.  Your extrapolation of what the policies of these people may yield could point to all that racist, fascist stuff, but that does not make it so.   The exaggerated fears and constant hand wringing and hysterical pleas to stand up, resist and blablabla are so over the top.

No way to tell the hard core about this.  They think news is real, and that only the right wing outfits lie and mislead.  Why bother?

I see the same on the right.  Far less hysteria lately, and I hear the left complain about hostility but I have only seen left wing violence on any scale.  They punched a horse and I will hold a grudge for awhile.

Also, you can show a picture of a group of people walking down a dirt road, apparently in the middle of nowhere, but that does not really constitute proof that they just hopped across the Rio Grande at the border and are walking to the nearest sanctuary city.  The pictures show no context.  Just a dirt road, Mexican looking families walking, brush on either side, not much else.  Impossible to determine the location from that.  It could be anywhere, so beware those who may be trying to play you.

Just is not proof.  
And I am one who thinks we are idiots in how we handle immigration, and not one that leans toward the sanctuary city concept.   Most people here have no clue what it takes to legally reside in other countries and how they punish trespassers.  They don't even realize Mexico's immigration laws and enforcement are more draconian, by far, than our own.

But self hating Americans are in vogue.  Or think they are.  So, it matters not what you say, they claim America is evil, and they break it down by race.  Left hand politics are racist by definition.  It is their bread and butter--ginning up group hate, envy, anything to divide and anger.

I realize that what passes as the opposition is nuts.  That is troubling.  They, too, refuse to see that government and laws are not always the best way.  They can't imagine a freer setup.  They only imagine a setup in which they are able to enforce the stuff they are eager to prosecute.  

In reality, the border thing is a big smokescreen for harassing citizens without cause.  It is one thing to have the border crossing station and all that but another to have permanent roadblocks on major highways which do not ever even cross the border.  These are many miles away.  20, 60, and more.

Border patrol has no legitimate right to do this.  This is the federal government trying to run roughshod over the population.  In is wrong.  But the law and order dimwits who go all John Wayne at the dumbest times are probably blubbering a bunch of "oh thank you for your service!"

Well for those who man stations not anywhere near the border and ask citizens where they've been, where they are going, and why, No thanks for your disservice.  Clearly they, and the people who created this encroaching police state do not give a damn about the constitution or your rights.

Can't make comments any easier, I don't think. People are having trouble--google tries to kidnap them. I'll loosen up one more thing and let's see. Please give it a try
