Joke Biden Looks to Trump Up His Policies
Usually, Id say something like, Grab a cup of joe
But after watching the Clueless One bumble around for another week, Im sure youve had your fill of old Joe.
Talk about a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest!
Lets go through three utter policy failures that the Delaware Unaware has to fix immediately, suspiciously looking like 45.
Build the Wall!
Bill Burr is one of my favorite comedians. I think hes hilariously funny and quite intelligent with his humor.
Hes a chip off of George Carlins block, but not as measured in his delivery.
Watch this clip of him ridiculing Trump for wanting to build the wall.
Its a two-day drive at 80 mph!
Not to get too deep here, but Hans-Hermann Hoppe addressed this very issue in his introduction to The Myth of National Defense, a series of essays on the subject he edited.
Two of the most widely accepted propositions among political economists and political philosophers are the following:
First: Every monopoly is bad from the viewpoint of consumers. Monopoly here is understood in its classical sense as an exclusive privilege granted to a single producer of a commodity or service; i.e., as the absence of free entry into a particular line of production. In other words, only one agency, A, may produce a given good, x. Any such monopolist is bad for consumers because, shielded from potential new entrants into his area of production, the price of his product x will be higher and the quality of x lower than otherwise.
Second, the production of security must be undertaken by and is the primary function of government. Here, security is understood in the wide sense adopted in the Declaration of Independence: as the protection of life, property (liberty), and the pursuit of happiness from domestic violence (crime) as well as external (foreign) aggression (war). In accordance with generally accepted terminology, government is defined as a territorial monopoly of law and order (the ultimate decision maker and enforcer).
That both propositions are clearly incompatible has rarely caused concern among economists and philosophers, and in so far as it has, the typical reaction has been one of taking exception to the first proposition rather than the second.Before we get into the utter futility of Bidens southern border policy, lets get back to first principles.If all the property on the southern border was privately owned, do you think those landowners would just let strangers trespass on their property?Of course not.Then why has it been acceptable - even lauded - to allow both Mexicans and non-Mexicans to cross the border with impunity? And after that, allow those trespassers to dip their hands in the communal treasury?Because no one owns the land? Because the treasury is now the property of the U.S. Government and not The People?What magical powers have been conferred on this government to make it The Government? And who granted those powers?Like everything else, they usurped that power.When you think about it that way, its preposterous to assume governments anywhere should - and do - carry out that duty.Did Angela Merkel do so in 2015? Nein.Whats troubling is that the EU knew Syrians werent the only ones crossing the Turkish border into Europe.Of the 1.3 million refugees who flooded into Europe in 2015, only 378,000 (29%) were Syrian.The US is experiencing the same disaster now from Mexico.Check out this graphic from a few years ago:If this was happening during the Trump Administration, how many non-Mexicans do you reckon are flooding through the southern border today?To be sure, Mexicans are the majority group. But traffickers know what theyre doing, and would-be migrants spot the opportunity.Why wouldnt would-be terrorists head that way? Much better than a background check before getting on a plane, isnt it?With all this said, while Sleepy Joe isnt building the wall, he looks to re-adopt the Trump-era policy of Remain in Mexico.Its little wonder, as his current policy is a complete failure, judging by this chart:
