Ask the CEO: Crisis at the Border

After watching the president conclusively prove he can read off a teleprompter, I struggled to stay awake as the 146-year-old couple (Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) robotically read through an uninspired response.


Here’s the real crisis at the border: children are dying. Families fleeing from drug cartel violence (criminal competition to serve Americans, monetarily the largest illegal drug market in the world) are having their children stripped away and detained in concentration camps with numbers written on their arms.

Last night, the president mostly avoided the lies he’s been spouting about the imaginary hoards of (brown) terrorists and criminals coming across our southern border, but I’m certain the mean girl tweets and lies from the draft dodger and the amoral suck-ups remaining in his administration will start back up this morning.

If you’re of a mind to be fearful of terrorists hiding among campesino asylum seekers looking for work, here’s a crisis that hasn’t been leveraged yet: There’s a 4,000 mile border between mainland United States and Canada! OMG, the terrorists might have maps!

We also need to build more thousands of miles of walls around every international airport and seaport since almost half of our undocumented immigrants are from Asia, Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. They arrive by airplanes that fly thousands of feet above walls.

Walls don’t work ask China. The most recent downfall of the Chinese government (Qing government) and the subsequent “century of humiliation” was at the imperial hands of the British exploitation and their Opium Wars. The British arrived where the Great Wall of China doesn’t work by sea as do most of the illegal drugs (consumed mostly by white Americans) coming to this country today.

Anyone reasonably informed on Russian interference with our elections and the soul-sucking absence of responsibility of Google and Facebook executives can imagine that the real invasion crisis facing our nation is coming from the Internet.

Inept questioning of Silicon Valley billionaires by our completely out-of-touch octogenarian congressional leadership is scarier to me than people seeking asylum from American market incited violence.

However, if undocumented workers truly concern you, then I propose immediately jailing employers who conspire to circumvent employment laws. Let’s start at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, N.J., where credible evidence of a criminal conspiracy to employ undocumented workers exists. Go right to the top. Lock him up. Lock him up. Lock him up.

Looking to the future, I have been invigorated by representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on “60 Minutes” and other interviews. Fresh, lively, intelligent. Representative of our nation’s future, not our past.

Despite Drops in Insurance Coverage in the US, Companies Are Stepping Up
