It's a pleasing crazy.

If we have to have a jobs program, why not running around, picking up people walking through the desert, and giving them water, basic medical care, and a ride to civilization?

Or Californian cities, too.

There are people in Federal court right now for leaving food and water out in the Cabeza Prieta. There's footage of the fucking Greenshirts pouring out the water. Damn near everyone down here leaves a cache of food out somewhere near the house, some cans, box of crackers, not because we're all a bunch of goddamn bleeding hearts on some sort of underground railroad so much as because when someone comes up on your place and they're lost and hungry, and you're off doing cowboy shit, they're a hell of a lot less likely to break into your house. Sometimes you'll come home and find that someone's found it and opened all the cans and poured them out on the ground.

Fucking people, man.

Trump wouldn't be cracking down on Chinese birth tourism if they stayed at his hotels.

They’re using the citizenship to game things like college admissions and if the people overthrow the ruling party and they become the oppressed group instead of the favored group, they have a backup plan. So fuck ‘me. If they were doing this because they legit wanted to move to the US, I’d have fewer objections.

I am pro-birth tourism. People that can afford birth tourism aren't the huddled masses, they're people of means looking for an insurance policy for if and when the revolution comes.
