Today’s summit with North Korea

One can hope, but the world should not expect any substance from this meeting. Trump is always about ratings and that all this is, an attempt to draw attention to himself.

Hire more dogs

Rather than a border wall and/or more border agents, the US should hire/purchase more drug-sniffing dogs to search for hidden drugs. The most recent discovery of hidden fentanyl was aided by a drug sniffing dog. More dogs would be a better, cheaper solution to the organized drug smuggling on our southern border.

Border security part 2

Inevitable Revolutions, The United States in Central America by Walter LaFeber published in 1993. When they gained their independence from Spain, the nations of Central America tried to join the young United States. They were rebuffed due to fears of upsetting the slave state/free state balance that existed before the US Civil war.

Immigration from Mexico is on the decline. Mexican labor in the US is being supplemented by laborers from Central America and refugees from the wars in the Middle East. If Trump’s Muslim ban continues and a southern border wall reduces the influx of cheap labor, where is the US to find the cheap labor we need? Perhaps it will be necessary to import contract laborers from China for periods of five to seven years. Chinese labor built western infrastructure, but the Chinese were not welcomed by the Anglo population.

Tale of Three Johns

It was the best of Johns (Kelly)
It was the worst of Johns (Bolton)
Then there was the boss Don John (Trump)
A triumvirate of evil if ever there was
John Revoltin’ Bolton urged an attack on Iran
Gas lines here we come
Don John needs a war to distract attention
And unite the people behind him
He said so himself
May be the 20-25% of time
He is telling the truth

Trump must go
