Up to 15000 troops to deal with a bunch of half starved migrants, who are still a good 1000 miles away.

That’s roughly the same number we have deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined, where we’re fighting actual wars with enemy combatants…

Step up the rhetoric, double down on making those who don’t agree with you the enemy and act ever more aggressively to cow those who should be taking a stand. We know what this recipe makes. We’ve seen it before. Modern history is replete with the result. Well, we’re watching it live right now.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
