Do You Feel Safer?

In the wake of an indepth investigation of children’s lunchboxes, DHS has proudly announced the confiscation of thousands of hairdryers at the US/Mexico border.  I guess this is supposed to make us feel better about all those taxes we pay.  And the obvious comeback is to wonder why they don’t work harder at catching illegal border crossers.  But I just find it weird that the administration is so tone deaf that they’d boast about something this trivial.  If they don’t see how silly this makes them look, then the bubble they’re living in is even thicker than I thought.

Still clinging to my guns and religion…


About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
