Imagine if you can.  A world that lives in peace.  However, listening to Trump's Immigration speech I can see that walls and order can mean survival.   I get confused and that might be because I smoked a little pot before listening to Trump.  

  His new campaign team is really polishing him up.  That trip to Mexico was a photo op and then to Arizona for the Immigration Speech was brilliant showmanship.  I know about Sanctuary Cities and he is right that they need help.   I lived in Southern California and saw some of the border towns up close.  I saw the wall and I heard the sad stories of that divide.   

   Trump is yelling and saying that all the horrible things will stop happening with him.  He has the answer and I found myself cheering.  No, not cheering.  It was more an awe of his power.  I wondered where Hillary is and what Obama is doing here in Hawaii during a hurricane.  

   The sound of the hurricane on my tin roof is drowning out the rest of Trump's speech.  He is coming down hard on Hilary and Obama.  Hard.  I wonder where they are?  I wonder if Hilary will go to Mexico?  I wonder if Obama regrets not going to the flood zone in Louisiana .  

   I can feel the fear.  I know how desperate things can get in the world and I dont want to be brutalized.  I want to be safe.  Trump paints a picture of completely open borders with Hilary.  He says he will hire 5,000 border guards.  Immediately.  It will happen fast.  Out.  Out.

   Finally the rain has stopped the transmission and Trump is reduced to a freeze of pixels. Quiet.  This election is epic.  Epic. Now I can only see the picture of Trump with no sound.  The rain has disrupted the reception.  Imagine   Imagine what a Trump presidency would look like.  It would be a hurricane. 

   The sound is back on now.  The chanting is fierce.  Do they chant at Hilary rallies?  No amnesty.  More chanting. The rain on the roof drowns out most of what Trump is saying.  He can sure talk.  On and on.  Importantly.  He just said that word.  He talks about being on budget and ontime.  He wants to build stuff.  He wants to organize.  He wants illegal immigration to stop.  

 I do too.  I hate borders.  I went over borders in India, Afghanistan, Turkey, Iran  and I was searched naked on the Canadian border twice.  Once they took my porn and once they took my pot.  Trump is right.  Illegal stuff needs to stop.  Riffraff like me should be controlled.  I look too much like Hilary to pass nowdays.  Borders scare me. Trump scares me and makes me afraid of Hilary.  

I miss Obama already.  Im glad he is in Hawaii during these hurricanes.  It will be ok.  Humans are smart.  We will be ok.  Right?  The roof hasnt blown off yet.  There is always hope.

A North Korean plans, saves, hoards food, keeps quiet, for months, finally getting the chance he's waited a decade for, he steers a small boat south during a storm that keeps him hidden from view, arrives in the South, and is hailed as a hero. A Salvadoran does essentially the same thing, and, instructively, is also looking to leave behind a government that may imprison or kill him, yet, on arrival in San Diego he is considered a criminal. Fascinating.

What's the Prez doing here? That's easy, he's with the Buf n Blu boys as usual. They're having fun like old friends do, Calabash cousins all, but, they may sneak in some of that locally famous Makiki Illuminati stuff when no one is looking.

No borders... hmmm.  Not sure but I'm thinking that the populations of North America and Europe would double in a decade.  Fifty years ago I read a bad sci-fi book where overpopulation and famine drove people from the Third World onto ships as refugees.  The author left out the religious wars, but over the past decade it seems to be coming true.  R&L ;-(

...and Hilary is in Ohio at an American Legion Convention.  Sounds so old fashioned.  Im glad Obama is with us.  He knows not to be afraid of a hurricane but to be prepared anyway.  I loved your comparison of the two immigrants.  Exactly.

I can certainly imagine a world w.o borders. I do not for a second think the idea is at all conducive to Regional, let alone World, Peace.

Glad you're surviving. No, there would not be completely open borders with Hillary. He also said Hillary and Obama founded ISIS. He says a lot of things.

Obama was asked not to go to the flood zone because protecting him would take too much money and time, and please don't just use them for a photo op. Which Trump just did.

I just heard Trump say: "My first hour in office those people are gone." cheers cheers cheers cheers

WTF - how? If he believes what he's saying he's an idiot. If he doesn't he's a con man.

I have to start smoking pot. I want to know how much it takes to start believing Trump. Z! Y0u have to remember when listening to him & smoking - he's a liar. Keep repeating that to yourself if you need to. And watch the second Rachel show tonight. I don't know how your timing works but here it came on 3 hours after her first show started.

So JW, you like borders for the safety aspect.  You think there would be more fighting without borders because everyone would be contained and legal.  Order.  rules and safety.....Yes!  I want to be safe!!!  Humans are evil and need to be regulated.  I really think that only desperate people do desperate things.  Until we learn to feed and house everyone no one will be safe no matter how high a wall they build.

Yes, Kosh, I know about how disruptive Obama's visit would have been....but that forty six minute video of Trump unloading toys was valuable.  His trip to Mexico was a good photo op.  It is a show.  He is a showman.  Obama and Hilary seem removed and remote right now.  He trumped them.

Thanks NC  I just turned Rachael on.  I love how she zeros in on the details.  She is reporting on how far Trump said he would return the immigrants back into their country.  Not just a border drop so they could come back in quickly.  Trump is loving this stuff.  He likes the idea of fixing stuff.   

  He is a liar.  A liar, a liar.   I was just talking to an old college buddy about our mutual friend who was a compulsive liar.  As time goes by we have all taken different paths and the liar is doing just fine.   Con artists eventually con themselves and make a little bubble that just reflects themselves.  They love it.  It is a game to see how far they can go with their imaginations and how many people they can take along with them.  A liar is kind of exciting...the truth is boring.

    I watched the MATRIX movie to balance the Trump speech out.   I also moved my car out from under the house to the front yard in case the house collapses tonight with the wind.  I know it wont but when the storms hit I think that it would be nice to have the car free to go if I had to...Maybe I wouldnt go anywhere but I would at least have it to sit in if the roof came off.  It was funny to find a place where it would be safe and not hit by a tree or the roof.   No one is safe.  EVER

just take out the word. 'would" and put in "needs to"  jw.      I remember when my mom used to go across the border into Mexico with her friends.  They would shop and have lunch.  It was just a gate in a chain link fence with lots of beggars milling around.  The last time I went to the Tijuana border it was enormous.  Really really intimidating.  People die on that border all the is a mess and very dangerous.  It is like the wild west.  More sheriffs we really need more guns down there and paperwork?  Maybe so.  I just remember hearing about the people dying on the trails into the desert in back of my house.  sad.
