The current mess

I haven’t had much to say about American politics since last year’s election, just my March 1 post on how the election was stolen by the Democrat Socialists (How they did it), because I consider the United States a lost cause, circling the proverbial drain.

Along with much of Western Europe, all drowning in political correctness.

But let’s take a look now at the situation above the border. I hope those who’ll be hit hardest will be the nincompoops who voted against Trump because they simply don’t like his personality. I have to think that was the sole issue because whenever I ask someone why he dislikes Trump, I never get a reasonable answer, just meaningless epithets.

Never once anything concrete, and I’ve asked a lot. “Orange Man bad! Sexist! Racist! Homophobe! Liar!” Uh, got any actual examples? No?

So let’s look at the border where a new flood of Biden-loving illegals is pounding on the gates, and many have already leaped the hurdles. The border had been mostly pacified by Trump’s smart policies, which Sleepy Joe has reversed.

A nation that does not protect its borders in time ceases to be a nation, and a rich nation that does not protect its borders ceases to be a nation even faster.

Illegal-alien camp in Tijuana, awaiting the okay to cross the border. No covid tests required.

And let’s look at fuel prices, which have increased because Sleepy Joe reversed Trump’s policies that made America energy independent for the first time in decades.

Also, it’s been announced, tax increases, which are needed to fund Democrat Socialist “freebies,” are coming down the pike. Trump reduced taxes. And Sleepy Joe has already bombed Syria following the Trump years when the White House focused on domestic issues instead of uselessly and counterproductively killing foreigners.

Aside from leftist rioters in Democrat cities and hyperventilating news media flunkies, the Trump years were primarily tranquil.

Joe will not be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump was, five times. The best Biden can hope for is a Participation Trophy, but there’s no guarantee of even that.

His actual participation appears sketchy.

The White House releases Sleepy Joe’s daily schedule to the press. Unlike Trump’s accomplishment-filled days, Joe does pretty much nothing at all, literally. One or two brief events each day, and that’s about it. And when he does do something, he risks taking a tumble, falling on his ancient keister down the steps of Air Force One.

What is the focus of this administration? “Institutional racism.” Gender inequality. Long-gone pay gaps. Climate change. Transsexual rights. The entire silly agenda of Social Justice Warrior-ism. Soon Harris will be president, and that will worsen. And Nancy Pelosi will advance to just one heartbeat away from the presidency herself.

Did you know that?

If you get your “news” from The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, NBC, NPR and their ilk, you are unaware of much of the above.

People who voted for Joe are ignoramuses, proving America to be a silly nation.

The hissy fits

fitWE MEXICANS love our hissy fits. They rarely resolve anything, but we throw them anyway. Here are three examples:

First: Eight or so years ago, Mexico City switched its electricity provider from some unionized outfit that ran an antiquated system to the Comisión Federal de Electricidad, the modern entity that provides light to most of the nation.

The unionized outfit promptly threw a hissy fit. For months, they blockaded the entrance to the CFE high-rise on Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City. The government ignored them.

These days the entrance is open, and electricity service is immeasurably improved.

Second: Mexico is in the early stages of an “education reform.” In part, this entails competency tests for teachers and they also lose the right to hand off their jobs to relatives on retirement. Unionized teachers promptly threw hissy fits.

The fits happened mostly in the usual suspect, backward states of Michoacán, Chiapas and Oaxaca. Unions blocked roads and highways, and squealed in the streets. The government is giving them lip service, but mostly it’s ignoring them.

Like the improved electricity provider in Mexico City, the education reform will happen.

Third, another reform is the energy sector, which is getting into high gear this year. For a variety of reasons, gas prices have gone up a lot. How did we react? We threw hissy fits, blocking highways, attacking gas stations, looting stores.

People want the old government-subsidized gasoline price. The government will ignore them and, in time, things will be better. Though gas prices likely will be higher.

Our hissy fits normally result in squat, but we throw them anyway. And it’s usually unions having the fits, fighting change, modernization and improvements.
