"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Math is for Losers

Let's see:  Texas is sending 250 troops in the next 72 hours; Arizona is going to deploy 150 troops.  That leaves New Mexico and California.  The length of the river in Texas, as an international border, is between 889 miles and 1248 miles (don't ask; I don't understand it, either).  The Arizona/Mexico border is 389 miles.  So anywhere from 1200 to 1600 miles of border will be "seal[ed] up" by the presence of 400 Guardsman who really can only do clerical work.  Yeah, one extra person incapable of making an arrest or even a detention for every 300-400 miles, is gonna keep the elephants away.

For sure.

This will definitely cut down on all the rapes that Trump is so worried about. But will he deploy the Guard to NYC to protect his Tower from fires clearly set by M-13?

MS-13 kept him from putting sprinklers in the residences of the Tower!
