Immigration Roundup

Some views on the immigration issue: Jerry Pournelle is concerned by the sheer number of immigrants and what that will do to our nation. Bob Thompson, like Fred Reed and myself, is concerned with who is immigrating, especially illegally. If 12 million nuclear physicists, doctors, computer programmers, aerospace engineers, or even competent auto mechanics were "swimming the river," we probably wouldn't be having this conversation. Kip has what could be thought of as more immediate and practical concerns about Mr. Bush's response to the problem. Bob Thompson, like me, wants a wall. Vox Day makes the great point that walls work both ways. As someone that was alive during the era of the Iron Curtain, I can certainly see his point.

The problem, as I see it, is that we are a bunch of white guys, and no one gives a shit about what a bunch of white guys think about anything. Mr. Bush's speech is proof of that.


I can't shake the feeling that something is going to break. Get mobile. Get small.
