How angry would you be, if your father had a heart attack, and when the EMTs arrived, they began lecturing your suffering parent, “Sir, first we need a careful review of your current diet and exercise routines, as well as, a complete cholesterol check, to determine the underlying “root causes” of your problem?”
Sometimes, may I say often, immediate actions are needed and are the most humane.
As millions are now being absorbed into the United States illegally, many are demanding we must get at the underlying “root causes” for this massive exodus to truly understand this situation...
Are we being taken advantage of?
Love doesn’t lie, and true compassion does not enable economic exploitation, general brutality, and horrifying human trafficking, let alone clear security risks and shameful, irresponsible neglects and manipulations.
We must be a kind nation: when our “kindness” creates greater cruelties — we must change our policies.
