Border song

Holy Moses, I think KingShamus has the Metaphor of the Month:

The only reason why you bring immigrants into the country is to make it better. Any immigration policy that doesn’t make America a more powerful nation, in observable quantifiable ways, is idiocy soaked in stupidity slathered in mendacity wrapped in a zesty bullshit crust.

Now that I think about it, that second sentence works just as well without the word “immigration.”

    Of course, the open(ish)-borders crowd has been pushing the “our strength is in our diversity” bilge long enough that some undoubtedly do believe: that any policy that increases the inflow, regardless of immediate consequence, must automagically achieve all those things even if they’re not observable or quantifiable to us mere mortals with our 4% Neanderthal genes.

    I’m glad you liked it.
