Where to Invade Next
« on: April 26, 2018, 09:38:40 AM »
The other night I saw (on TV) Michael Moore's latest movie. It ia an interesting collage of examples of how many issues that confront the USA have been dealt with in other countries.  From

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_to_Invade_Next

we have

Where to Invade Next is a 2015 American documentary film written and directed by Michael Moore.[3][4] The film, in the style of a travelogue, has Moore spending time in countries such as Italy, France, Finland, Tunisia, Slovenia, Germany, and Portugal where he experiences those countries' alternative methods of dealing with social and economic ills experienced in the United States.[5]

Film review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes describes the film as "an expansive, rib-tickling, and subversive comedy in which Moore, playing the role of 'invader,' visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects".[7] The nations he visits are Italy, France, Finland, Slovenia, Germany, Portugal, Norway, Tunisia, and Iceland; respectively, the subjects covered are http://www.sellersoapbox.com/index.php?action=post;board=29.0worker benefits, school lunches, early education, college education, worker inclusion, decriminalized drugs, low recidivism, women's health care, and women's inclusion and leadership role in society. These countries and supporting facts are listed on the film's website.[8]

I am posting this information here for anyone who might want to see the movie -- discussions of the issues involved clearly belongs on the political boards.

When our neighbor to the south calls for mass movement of their citizens into this nation, it is time for that leader to be schooled regarding sovereignty, and human rights. 

I think we should return the favor and seize control of portions of Mexico.  There is no way the Mexican army could do a hell a lot about it.  The cartels would be the biggest resistance, but they are criminal organizations. We do not need to treat them under the Geneva convention restraints. It is obvious the Mexicans cannot handle their problems on their own. This would change the status of Mexicans breaching this nations borders.  A short period of bloodshed in trade  for a reduction of bloodshed this side of the border.

Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Tuesday declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans.

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

While the election is not until July 1, Obrador is by far the frontrunner. (RELATED: Mag: Mexican Official Dreams Of Trump Assassination, But Most Urge Prudence)

Obrador in April delivered speech criticizing Trump and promising that Mexico will not become a “piñata” for any foreign government, Global News reports.

The former mayor of Mexico City, Obrador holds progressive populist views. The 64-year-old ran unsuccessfully for president twice before, according to DW.

Fox’s Tucker Carlson noted Thursday that Obrador has previously proposed granting amnesty to Mexican drug cartels. “America is now Mexico’s social safety net, and that’s a very good deal for the Mexican ruling class,” Carlson added.

It has been the policy of too many past presidents to use war as a way to  boost the economy. Trump did it without that crutch and with no bloodshed.

Barack Obama started no wars, and the economy was booming while Obama was President.
Tax cuts and increased federal deficits are providing an extra boost now, but for how long?
