Smugness Atrophying

January 31, 2017

Steve Martin “bit” from the 70’s

“I believe the united states should allow all foreigners in this country,  Providing they speak our native language………….

Apache “

Or Sioux,  or Cherokee,  or Shoshone,

Yes, okay,  we got it.  All the presidents since the Carter administration have banned immigrants.   (Not sure if that’s true or not), but okay.

Instead of that being the argument to support the Petulant of the US. (Unenlightened Simpletons) to justify treating a fellow passenger on spaceship earth, as less than a person.

How about just say,  holy fuck, we’re evolving,  7 presidents and 40 years later, that’s not a nice way to treat bi-pedal earthlings just because of their geography of birth,  epidermis color and beliefs.

Here is what the poem reads at the Statue of Liberty at least up until January 20th, 2017

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

It doesn’t say.

Give me your pink privileged pessimists.

Your holy wholly hypocrites,  clamoring to control commoners.

The ridiculous republican racists, and unbelievable bores.

Send these landholding, tax evaders and carnal curmudgeons.

Close the gate behind you, you capitalist whores.
