Trumps Time Machine
Some of us will refute his lies, but the base will ignore us.
The national anger will rise and our divide will deepen.
What he should really ask Congress to fund is a time machine.
The only real cure for what ails some folk is a machine that will take us backward to the time when good white folks bore children instead of adopting pets, minorities and women stayed in their lanes, and the churches we filled said amen.
If the wall can’t do that, it is worthless.
The bad guys will still drive through and fly over, the country will get browner, and the women are taking the whole road.
The churches are closing and the clergy are dying off.
Times have changed…for better and worse and we can either adapt to new realities or pretend we can wall them off.
So…pretend there’s a “border crisis” and “fix” it with a wall…but think about what other crises you’ll have to invent after that doesn’t work…and to what extremes you’re willing to go to in “fixing” them…
