While Laura Ingraham appears to be a gibbering idiot I know she is far worse than that. I would be very surprised if she believed any of the shit she puts out. Her goal is power through fame among those who are most receptive to hate that has been fomented as the last policy of a dying political party in a dying system. The only result will be continued human suffering and emotional reaction to imaginary problems. This is accelerating the collapse of the nation. While that is necessary this is not the way to do that. Instead of dealing with increasingly mobile populations by making use of them and supporting them as originally intended here, this is rapidly pressurizing a fragile structure that may well explode violently.

Now we are dealing with only the political and economic failure of capitalist economics and the 18th century political system that has become dysfunctional in its most radical forms. This is allowing the usual neofeudal opportunists the try to build police states. We’ve been lucky as global warming has so far only generated increasingly violent storms in this hemisphere but that will change into massive migrations as cities flood and equatorial areas become uninhabitable from heat. Africa will go first it seems but South America will go also. We are all in this together. What happens then?

Of course we can ignore that until it happens in 20, 30, or 40 years. These things have already started and will continue to build. The years listed above are not until something starts but the time until they become uncontrollable and unmanageable.

I suggest we get past this border idea now. We need maximum flexibility and borders only create problems. There are terrorists in the world and they need to be managed and neutralized but borders are worthless. In America the terrorists are here and were born here. Thinking this is some kind of border thing takes away from managing the problems that foster violence as well as suffering. That is exactly the goal of Trump and his cohort. Ingraham is simply a mouthpiece for this working for her reward.
