The same people that wanted to wage war on an entire religion over 3000 American dead are now excusing and contributing to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans.

That’s about it, yes.

I DID notice there wasn’t much “nevar forgit” rhetoric emanating from Republican donut holes this last eleventh of September.

One beneficial side-effect of Trump's isolationism I guess. Wars to make everyone into an American are so very Lat Decade.

Most economists point out that given declining birth rates, educational deficiencies and an aging population, the US economy cannot function without a continuing robust immigration flow. I once attended an address by a Nobel prize winning economist who said that by 2025, any sane US politician would be standing on the southern border begging for immigrants.

I think most “developed” countries face this challenge.

We've got this problem big style in Scotland but the UK government is the most anti-immigrant it's been in decades. Priti Patel FFS.

It's not even that, although that's bad enough. It's not only those who can't now get in to the country, it's the clear message being sent to loads of Europeans already here, that they aren't welcomed here by the UK Government and the Home Office will not behave fairly to them. Then there's the additional whammy of uncertainty about access to EU programs and funding, or visas for colleagues. We already know academics are being refused visas, and travel outside the UK is going to get much harder for teaching assignments, research activities, conferences and so on.

We've lost a load of pharmaceutical specialists, medical researchers and tertiary lecturers and researchers, all sold up and moved to continental Europe. It's a massive loss in taxation, skills and business locally, and these aren't turnip pickers, we don't have a huge reserve pool of unemployed bio-mechanical specialists or virologists. What we do have are empty jobs that were supporting services, empty houses unsuitable for first home buyers and businesses desperate to fill skills gaps.

It's also about to get much worse, from conversations with colleagues, skilled Europeans on fixed term contracts are looking to take the next contract elsewhere outside the UK. So far with kids, homes etc, it's been hard to uproot all that, but over time, more and more will simply take the next gig in Bratislava or Bruges instead of Birmingham.

I think the UK government is taking lessons from Bill. Drive out all the undesirables, (like Brits and Lefties from TNP), and anyone daring to question the prevailing orthodoxy using opaque rules and capriciously applied decisions.
