Labor Day: very confusing.
Joey B was in Detroit with Big Labor telling them that its time to take back America! From whom? And hasnt that sort of hate speech been deemed to be racist by our Attorney General?
Also at the event, Teamsters President James Hoffa told the Labor Day crowd to get off their butts and head to the polls:
If we stay home, we lose. Weve got to have turnout. Thats how we turn this country around.
Turn the country around? Havent you and your team been running it for the past 6 years? As I said, it was confusing.
Meanwhile Big Guy was in Milwaukee, pitching HOPE and rights for everybody!
Hope is what gives us courage; hope is what gave soldiers courage to storm a beach. Hope is what gives young people the strength to march for womens rights and workers rights and civil rights and voting rights and gay rights and immigration rights.
I look around this room, and I see nothing but untapped potential.
Im not sure what HOPE or Immigration Rights has to do with Organized Labor. Maybe the unions are supposed to HOPE that amnesty and an open border doesnt provide millions of aliens willing to do the work Americans union members are willing to do, only for less money.
And while talking up immigration rights on the one hand, I see that the other hand is simultaneously making emigration rights much more expensive:
Americans who are abandoning their citizenship in droves are due to be charged five times more to surrender their passport under government plans announced yesterday.
It looks like you can come here for free, butt its going to cost you dearly if you wish to leave. Isnt that the way it always starts? First, a charge for being an expat, later a huge penalty tax, and eventually youre not allowed to leave at all.
Berlin Wall circa 1961
John F. Kennedy spoke of such things 1963:
Freedom has many difficulties, and democracy is not perfect. But we have never had to put a wall up to keep our people into prevent them from leaving us. JFK, 1963 Ich bin ein Berliner speech
I suppose we could look at the bright side: thats one way to get a border fence built.
Did you know that Pinocchio was a terrible motivational speaker?
You have oh boy.
Oh yeah, as it turned out, he was.
Oh boy, indeed

I said long ago, when they get around to building it, it will be to keep us in.
An Iron Curtain is coming down around the US. We are headed the way of Venezuela.
