The question today: what exactly does the GOP have planned which would cause residents of this country to head for the border? Surely there is more to this than flushing a few billion into contracts for the well connected. Is it as simple as keeping the benefits of this “cheap” labor for the corporations who manage their own transportation apparatus? Has anyone noticed that the pictures of a border obstacle which we’ve seen aren’t over four feet tall?

Someone asked about Austin in a community and I posted this sentence about my experience

The one grocery store in the neighborhood is like shopping at the U.S. Embassy in Saigon in 1975.

I am now having second thoughts as this may be a little strong.
