OK, here's a "drunk blog". I may regret it in the morning.
I don't like too many immigrants, even though I am one. The reason is I don't like them is that immigration is fueling the population explosion in the USA and this is leading to environmental stress.
And I don't like terrorists. 57 virgins? Good luck with that.
And I don't mind 'racial profiling'. Makes sense to me.
And I don't cow-tow to this 'welcoming refugees' soppiness (although I do think that, having been a major initiator of their distress, we should do a hell of a lot more to alleviate their problems wherever they happen to be right now).
But a blanket ban on LEGAL immigrants? On scholars? Entrepreneurs? SCIENTISTS?
An INDISCRIMINATE blanket ban?
The collateral damage is just too great from this one.
