First it was about 2,000, then we were told it’s up to 4,000. We have no way of knowing who’s coming or what their purpose is. NBC and CNN assure us they are seeking sanctuary but how can we know? Neither Honduras or our subjective media in America have been honest with us in the past. So, how do we know why that many people are marching across Central America?
Then this morning on the Today Show we were told the number is up to 7,000 in this caravan as it is called. This is undoubtedly a humanitarian crisis, its growing daily and Guatemala is not helping, in fact they are adding their people to the number. Will Mexico help or add people? If they really are seeking sanctuary Mexico is closer. But if they are coming to America what is their real goal?
So where is the UN? All the billions in American tax money they’ve taken over the last half century needs to go to something we can see really helping people. So, again, where is the UN? Most likely UN officials are being driven in air conditioned limos to meetings and talks in the comfort of temperature regulated offices. They love meetings and talks-meetings crowded in between delicious, nutritious meals prepared by well paid, well trained chefs in sanitary conditions. Meanwhile hungry and perhaps sickly people tread northward.
And what do those running for office here in Tennessee think about this crisis that is growing every day? What does Phil Bredesen think about it? Will he waltz around the issue while the band plays Around the World in 80 days? That’s a nice accompaniment for his Clinton-speak answers.
So, I ask Mr Bredesen, is this good for Tennessee to have this mass of humanity ignored by the UN and allowed to stream across our southern border? I hear the commercial daily with Phil saying “we don’t need a wall?” So I ask Phil, do you have a wall around your house or a lock on your door?
And what about Karl Dean who wants to spend his way to prosperity here in Tennessee. What do you think we should do about these folks, Karl? Don’t say the UN is working on a solution. They’re working on their menu for their meals between “talks.”
Everyone who hasn’t already voted needs to email or call the offices of these two candidates and ask what their answer to this crisis is? I think we know what their party thinks, but aren’t they supposed to be independent thinkers?
