Visa Pause

President Trump’s visa pause: What a bunch of stupid histrionics. How can a 90-day pause for security review of the visa and asylum┬áseekers from 7 countries cause so much “indignation”. I’ve even read an article that this 90-day pause could result in doctor shortage – by thousands.

The U.S. could face a shortfall of thousands of doctors, experts warn, because Pres. Donald Trump issued an executive order last week that banned citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days. Scientific American

Pardon my incredulity, but puuuleeeaseeee. Drama much? A 90-day pause causes the end of life as we know it in the US apparently. They say these things, but really, if a visa is supposed to take 2 – 3 years of “vetting” what’s another 90 days for a few months during the security procedure review? It beggars credulity.

I’m eagerly awaiting the 9th Circuit Court ruling today, though I have no hope the most liberal court in the US will find for the government, not because the case lacks merit, quite the contrary, it’s slam dunk, but this is all about politics and money and in this day and reality those trump the Constitution every time it seems.


2017 – The Rabbit Hole

Things have changed, and most changes for the worse.

We have a duly elected new president whose main two goals are “Make America Great Again” and to keep us as safe as is within his power and Constitutional ability to keep us. In other words, he wants to do good things, yet at every turn, he is reviled and fought against.

For me, that translates to Trump haters do not want me to succeed and prosper, nor do they wish me to be a bit safer from bad actors and terror events. And that just doesn’t make sense to me. And it has nothing to do with me… for them it’s all about Trump, I’m just collateral damage and meaningless.
