Mr. Trump, tear down this wall!

Donald Trump’s popularity rises every time he talks about building a wall. His popularity has been rising the last couple of days. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to why?

Look, we’re not going to build a half a trillion-dollar wall and get Mexico to pay for it. We’re not going to deport eleven million people just because their green cards have expired.

This election will be determined by how many people are stirred by Trump’s nationalist message. (Yay!) All Hillary has to offer is a slow, steady, methodical approach to dealing with the reality of globalism. (Yawn.)

Is Trump a racist? That depends on your opinion of what makes someone a racist. Is Hillary untrustworthy? That depends on what your opinion of what makes someone untrustworthy.

Most republicans are going to vote for Trump even though they might not like him very much. Most democrats are going to vote for Hillary even though they might not like her very much.

Look, of the three branches of government, the executive branch has the least amount of power. The power to move the people in one way or another on a particular issue. That power is limited by Congress, and I don’t think Congress is ever going to approve the building of a half a trillion-dollar wall and getting Mexico to pay for it; and I don’t think Congress is ever going to approve of deporting eleven million people just because their green cards have expired.

No child left behind? Think again.

Okay, let’s get a few things straight.

Einstein never said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

The story of Newton sitting under an apple tree, getting hit on the head by a falling apple, prompting him to come up with his law of gravity never happened. The witty author Voltaire made it up as a joke.

If you don’t know what the “I think, therefore I am.” philosophical proposition by RenĂ© Descartes means, stop saying it.

Here’s a revelation. There are more than a dozen words that mean the same thing as an “aha moment”. Try using one of them once in a while. Please.

It’s astounding how many words mean the same thing as “amazing”. Try using one of them once in a while… No, don’t ever say “amazing” ever again! Ever!

We’ve already lost the war over your, you’re, yore, UR, and ur, so just use whatever the hell you want…

We’d rather let them die.

Imagine how your life would be without the internet. Without a phone. Without TV. Without electricity. You are poor. There is no food. Soldiers and civilians are killing each other, and you and your family are caught in the crossfire. They come to rape the women and girls. AK-47’s are pointed at your sons and they are forced to decide to join in the raping and killing or die right where they stand. You and your family are going to die – or worse – it’s just a matter of time. You pray for help. You scream for help. Help is not coming.

You only have one chance: Get the hell out. You have to leave the country or die trying.

Now imagine that same story multiplied hundreds of thousands of times – this year alone – and you have a tiny sense of what’s going on in Libya, Syria, Afghanistan and elsewhere. These people would be helpless, these people would be hopeless, but for the kindness of strangers. The kindness Italy, the kindness of France, the kindness of Germany, the kindness of many other countries. But not the kindness of America.

We don’t want those people to come over here. We’d rather let them die. Plain and simple. This is the America we live in. Don’t take my word for it. Read the comments on this post, or the comments on any site posting stories similar to this one.

This is Donald Trump’s America. God help us.
