"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
The packages and too much selective indignation: https://t.co/4RUSLxbNTc via @YouTube— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) October 25, 2018
Democratic leaders want their members to stay silent.And there’s one thing about silence.“Chi tace acconsente,” says my barber, Raffaele Raia. “He who is silent says ‘yes’. The silence is the consent.”And so, whatever you call this, it may just be the event that finally compels Americans to think long and hard about why a sovereign nation would even bother to have borders at all.But calling the mass of people moving through Central America a caravan is just a bit too precious, isn’t it?Depending on your politics, you’ve probably already called it something.Or, you may have followed the example of Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer, who’ve found a nice pile of warm sand and stuck their heads in there.
One of the short stories on the Times’ online Book Review page – to be published in Sunday’s print edition – is titled, “How it Ends,” by Zoe Sharp – a chilling story about a drunken Russian’s plot to murder the president with a Makarov pistol. Sharp’s particular story doesn’t mention Trump by name, but it’s no secret as the collection of stories is headlined, “Five novelists imagine Trump’s next chapter.”
