Watching another episode of Bonanza this afternoon. In this one, a candidate is running for office in Virginia City. His slogan is "America for Americans".
How very ironic.
That's right, foreigners are taking our jobs. They're threatening our people and our values. They, not we, are responsible for the ills of our society. It's a page taken right out of a Donald Trump speech--except that this particular bullshit long preceded Trump. He is merely the latest to spew it all over again, to return like the proverbial dog to the vomit of the past.
If you think that we have much progressed as a society, take a look at the old Bonanza episodes--for many could have been written for this very day.
