Sophia Loren once said: A woman’s dress should be like a barbed wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view. The thing that fence builders always seem to forget is that is that Sophia is still under the dress.
We’ve got vigilantes patrolling the Mexican border wanting to shoot five year olds. Fear is the biggest fence there ever was and those old boys are running scared. They must have looked at their own rotten kids and figured the States were going to get overrun by temper tantrums in the supermarket.
It’s true that almost overnight Bulgaria did manage to a put up fence that has been successful keeping refugees from the Syrian conflict out of their country. If I was a refugee I’d be on my way to France or Italy and not even think of staying in sunny Bulgaria but the Bulgarians haven’t figured that out. During World War Two under similar circumstances their border patrols executed at least 15,000 Greeks; Starving refugees fleeing “conflicts.” The real fun part was at the same time they were forcing thousands of Greeks into Bulgaria as slave labor.
Rounding up stray Mexicans to sell would be a good occupation for the old boys patrolling our border with their machine guns. They’d still get to drink beer, take pot shots at wetbacks and get some spending money. If only slave markets were still allowed in the United States it could be a viable venture. Maybe if we called it forced indenture our own border fences would get built faster and we’d be as safe as the Bulgarians.
