I call almost every country a third world shithole. Usually as my morning prayer. Including this country.

What in the fucking fuck is wrong with all these righteous jackwagons?

Reason

I came to America 32 years ago with my former husband from India, a country that would surely qualify as what this president called a "shithole": It is poor, underdeveloped and polluted, where—as one reader helpfully pointed out—people literally shit on the streets.

...


:coolspecs:

India may be poor, but this couple were from the upper class. Educated and able to leave with the maximum amount of cash possible, far more than India's poor make in a year and in fact not much less than India's median yearly wage. And I bet they spoke fluent English.

That's the point, bring in educated, English-speaking immigrants. Not dirt-poor, uneducated people with no job skills who will have poor children and collect welfare.

But Tanzania is black, so if you call it a shithole it's because you're racist.


Really? :P

Here's a little something that may help you out: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/The_Fine_ ... _Detection

Here's something that may help you out, a link to the story the quote is from: http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/05/world/afr ... itchcraft/

It continues to this day: "Tanzania charges mob with killing, burning five 'witches'"
Almost 500 people were killed by mob justice in the first six months of 2017, many of them women accused of witchcraft, Tanzania’s Legal and Human Rights Center said.

But only a racist would call Tanzania a shithole, right?

FWIW I'd call Tanzania a shithole.

I am however calling bullshit on any alleged relevance to a USA immgration debate.

The relevance is that it argues for an intelligent entry paradigm. The issue is who brings something to the party and who is most likely to assimilate. I don't buy the diversity is good for its own sake argument in the least, diversity is an ok byproduct of a sane immigration policy.

"Shithole" is an indirection, and Democrats fell for it. And Democrat sentimentality about letting in "everybody" does not correspond to what actually happens (never mind it would not be desirable).

To pin it down even better, the USA is not Germany or Sweden.

The huge hordes are Mexicans, and the problem is primarily economic not cultural incompatibility, local situations such as Somalis in Minneapolis notwithstanding.

Mexico is potentially as prosperous as the USA and the #1 "root cause" of the problem is the Mexican ruling class not wanting there to be an independent minded middle class. The number #2 "root cause" is a faction of the USA ruling class also does not want there to be an independent minded middle class, but there already is one.

The advantage to American employers to hiring Mexicans is entirely due to their illegal status.

Mexicans here legally and not yet citizens are affected similarly to citizens.

Walkin' down the street, smoggy-eyed
Looking at the sky, starry-eyed
Searchin' for the place, weary-eyed
Crying in the night, teary-eyed

Don't you know that it's true
That for me and for you
The world is a shithole
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray
