    nothing like they do, and they allow nothing like what goes on here incessantly.

    There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

    •  You are, of course, correct oldpotsmuggler (6+ / 0-)

      We also fail to have periodic purges of people who don't look like "us".  
      We fail to follow the jingoistic policies of many a European nation, and expel the foreign among us, after the work's been done for lower wages that "we'd" accept.
      The darker-of-skin, the worshipers of religions other than those who adhere to the tenets of Martin Luther.
      We fail to hold-fast to our national identity and protect our private holdings from those not born here.
      Well, not really "here" but of good solid Northern European Stock.  Except the Irish.  Not them.  Nor the Poles.
      We tossed the French.  Those mediterraneans?
      They're so dark and swarthy... oh noes.  They can't become citizens, nor hold property.

      It just wouldn't be right, fitting, or well-regulated.
