Thanks. It’s just that years of online battle have left me with frayed nerves over certain things. Governing myself is #1. The rest is defense, offense, battle, diplomacy,
From April 2013 – this is my battle line and where most of my politics takes place: boundary between inner and outer world. I guard and protect it because it’s in constant use yet continually vulnerable.
It took a while to commit but politically, I’m #abolishICE . It’s Federal and reaches into homes right past State, County, Local and community lines. Too much power in the hands of too few.
Our sheriff’s were deputized as ICE about 15 yrs ago. Spanish call them “polimigra” – a hybrid between police and immigration.
At first, they abused their new powers but after pushback from various sides, the polimigra reached a live-and-let-live arrangement.
2018, despite the fact that our own police have the same capacity already, foreign boots from the Federal ICE started stomping into homes of working migrants and doing raids without talking to local authorities first.
That’s a town away from me – a town full of hard working migrants from South America and Mexico.
