We don't want your fucking wall!

Donald Trump
It's hard to get a handle on Trump because he is so erratic but it seems that we are mistreating children and their families so that Trump can bargain for his idiotic wall. Asylum seekers are also being systematically abused and they have done nothing wrong.

The basic premise for the wall is that brown people are taking something away from white people and that must STOP! This instant!. Hrumph! The premise is wrong and the wall will do nothing to prevent illegal immigration.

Actually, it will do things in that it will change the way in which determined immigrants enter the country. They will find a better way. It is inevitable.

The wall is worse than ineffective. It sends a terrible message to the world. While Trump's white nationalist base is proud of its prejudices, most of us are resistant to being depicted as a bunch of racist yahoos.

Equally important are all of the things in science and medicine that are not being properly funded. Yet we have billions of dollars available for a useless campaign promise based on our worst racist instincts.

We need to face the reality that Trump only cares about one thing. Trump. The best interests of the nation are irrelevant to Trump. The welfare of others is equally irrelevant. Trump's massive, but terribly fragile, ego is in charge.
