It wasn't my favorite but I liked it. I thought it was a nice reminder that we're a nation of immigrants.
"I believe in a Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of all that exists, but not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and actions of human beings."
--Albert Einstein, 1929
Does that sound ridiculous? Yes, yes it does...becuase simply appealing to "It was something that happened at one point in our countries history" as your argument is a poor one. The reality is that the contextual situation of 200+ years ago and of today within this country are SUBSTANTIALLY different and acting as if what was best of the country then is best for the country now is ridiculous. The fact we at one time were flooding in any and every immigrant we could get ahold of in no way, shape, or form should impact our immigration policies 200 years later. I do think the diversity within the country is ONE thing to be proud of about it and to celebrate, but it should be celebrated in consert with other things such as our shared history/heritage/culture.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Some folks just need to chill out and look for reasons to get along rather than bitch about every little damn thing they can think of!
People from around the world built this country, it is nice to remember that from time to time and marvel how well we do all get along compared to many other nations.
