"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

Wag The Dog

The racist xenophobia is lagniappe.

(Adding:  yes, we've been here before.  No, Trump can't use U.S. military troops to enforce immigration laws on the Mexican border.  Back in April he didn't even try to use the National Guard to enforce the immigration laws; they just worked to "support" the Border Guard.  Yes, he is a paranoid xenophobic racist idiot.  He is also the President of the United States.  No, this is not a Hallowe'en movie.  Unfortunately.)
