I had to stick black in the title of this for two reasons. The first is that I'm not convinced that there is a Conservative position worth articulating. And by that I mean Conservative in the tradition of what is conservative about the Founders. It is an admission that I have a bit of work to do understanding how Augustine leads to Jefferson leads to Hayek in the moral philosophy of Conservatism. The second reason is that Erin Aubry Kaplan is getting invited to represent in hoity salons and since her invitation is about 9 months too late, there is some consensus that black opinion has not been tapped on this particular subject. So 'black' is for the search engines, y'all.
There's nothing particularly that I would like to amend from Cobb's Rules on Immigration although I'm certainly at a more dispassionate remove from the days I wrote them. If it appears that I hadn't acknowledged the reasonableness of non-tattoo identification, then let this be that acknowledgment. However at this moment it is clearer to me that there seems to be no resolve in the matter of law enforcement. It seems like every month there is a new outrage.
A gunman in a group of six to eight men came within 35 feet of National Guardsmen watching the Mexican border earlier this month, according to a Guard report.
The four Guardsmen from Tennessee were manning an observation post near Sasabe on Jan. 3, looking for illegal border crossings. The men approached, split into two groups and surrounded the site, according to the report.
The troops began to withdraw to avoid a confrontation. As they were loading their gear into their vehicle, one of the armed men approached within about 33 feet, according to the summary.
"Both groups kept their weapons 'ready low' and never pointed them at each other. No shots were fired," the report states.
The troops finished loading the vehicle and drove away. They then called Border Patrol agents, who tracked the armed men back to the border but were not able to find them. Officials have said they do not know who the armed men were and what they were doing near the observation post.
People in California are really fed up with the epistemological battle over 'immigration'. The matter is illegal immigration and the great nothing that is being done about it.
So there's just a little update really of what I've said before with a couple new items thrown in. Just being timely. The issue isn't so very complicated. Illegal immigration hurts. Blacks and Mexicans are at low level conflict here in Southern Cal. Some people think that Black+Brown politics will achieve something special, it won't. Blackfolks are getting kicked to the curb by the same radical chic buttlickers who have nothing constructive to add to the American political debate other than their own obsessions about race and ethnicity and pity for the poor.
