America for the Americans

It is no secret that the 9-11 tragedy and our hysterical overreaction to it spawned widespread fear and xenophobia across our country. One of the most pernicious effects was a relapse into the amnesia that this nation periodically experiences, giving rise to a manifest hostility toward immigrants, this time in the name of Homeland Security (fall to your knees).

We so easily forget that the only truly native Americans are the handful who survived our highly successful efforts to ethnically cleanse this continent of its original inhabitants.

The worst long term effect of 9-11 on US economic and national security interests may be a lingering hostility to immigrants (both those that are here already and those who seek to come). This nation owes its continuing vitality to the waves of immigrants that have streamed to its shores. To shut off this vital flow would only subject the country to the same danger of rapidly aging population that threatens many of the planet's great civilizations. The tragic fact is that the terrorists and extremists are not responsible for this potential damage; we are doing it to ourselves.

William's Whimsical Words:

The God of Homeland Security is a vengeful and jealous god who zealously protects his people from all immigrants, outsiders, foreigners, and unbelievers.
