Reader says don’t ask the rest of us to do what you won’t just because your party’s policies always fail and you simply want to nullify our suffrage with the votes of the eternally-dependent

Glen Rock Mayor Bruce Packer

“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ” Winston Churchill.

Put another way, truth does not equate to nastiness and yes, some countries are indeed shitholes. By any reasonable metric (per capita GDP, average longevity, infant mortality, hours per day the electricity is on, availability of clean water, basic human rights protections, percentage of GDP stolen by politicians, nutritional intake, average educational level, percentage of the country ruled by warlords or criminal gangs, etc. etc.), Haiti, Somalia and North Korea are “shitholes”. Shitholes are usually distinguished by comparing the number of people trying (or merely wishing) to get out of the country compared to the number trying to get in. If the former is above five figures or 30 percent and the latter is approaching zero, the country probably qualifies as a shithole. Usually, shitholes have reached their wretched state because of the culture and institutions (not the skin color, but nice try at attempting to inject the hackneyed Leftist racial angle) of the people who live in them. And be honest (if you’re capable), who would be more likely to have a positive contribution to the United States in terms of employability (aka “self-sufficiency”) and taxes paid vs. benefits consumed, someone from the countries listed above or someone from Norway (not exclusively, that was simply the leader Trump had just met with). Either way, this question is above Mayor Packer’s pay grade and he has absolutely nothing to say about who moves to Glen Rock. That is determined by the means of the person who rents or buys there, which usually excludes people who emigrate from shitholes. He should stick to his knitting and just make sure the potholes get filled in on time. As for you, if your bleeding heart keeps you up at night,, sponsor a family in a qualifying country (as I have for a family in Guatemala for 25+ years). But don’t ask the rest of us to do what you won’t just because your party’s policies always fail and you simply want to nullify our suffrage with the votes of the eternally-dependent.

  1. “you simply want to nullify our suffrage with the votes of the eternally-dependent” I think that was a line from Danial Day Lewis in Gangs of NY. Of course then it was about the dirty poor Irish and other Catholics from shit hole countries.

  2. From Fox News:

    When former Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy takes office as New Jersey’s next governor, he plans to establish a state agency geared toward aiding undocumented immigrants, the Washington Post reported.

    Murphy, a Democrat who held the ambassador post under President Barack Obama after several years as a Goldman Sachs executive, said the agency would be called the Office of Immigrant Defensive Protection.

    Murphy previously vowed to make New Jersey a sanctuary state if President Donald Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    “DREAMers… are every bit as American as my four kids,” he said at a debate with outgoing Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R) in Newark.

    “We will stand up to this president. If need be, we will be a sanctuary not just city but state. This is America… Mr. President, not in the state of New Jersey,” he said at the time.

  3. Here’s what his new office will do for illegals:

    Murphy told the Post the new agency will be an office that undocumented immigrants could “call with questions about their status.”

    “The rumors that swirl around communities are extraordinary, and it’s literally hard to get, particularly if you’re undocumented, the right answer to your question. That’s when people go back into the shadows,” he said.

    Murphy added that he thought the term “sanctuary” had become tainted as a political “buzzword” – saying he preferred the term “welcoming.”

    The Post reported Murphy supports offering state identification, driver’s licenses and education-related financial aid to illegal immigrants.

  4. Please Mr. Murphy, MNJSA (make nj a shithole again). Murphy will have his way as long Jeff Sessions sleeps at the helm. Federal law is obligatory, you can’t pick and choose which laws you like. And if the law is violated the federal government must intervene. Not holding my breath though. We’re on the path to Californification. I bet there is a plan between NY, NJ and CA to totally defy Trump by any means and costs.

  5. Jerzey will be mirror of Kalifornia in no time- waiting for a “Bullet Train” proposal and sanctuary state legislations.
