The E word  
An elitist is a person with ability who tells the masses not to obey the rich white guys. If you don't believe that, consider this article about Donald Trump as anti-elite politician.

(And let's hear it for the Chicago brewery that renamed their Donald Trump beer "Chinga Tu Pelo.")

I think Mr. Trump qualifies as a Nincompoop, per say, rather than just a person who sometimes says nincompoopish things. But in the most recent one.... hey, Mexico (the Government or the Country) actually sends us very few people: Ambassidors & other Diplomatic Officials, mostly on a short-term or limited-term basis. I'm willing to bet that they're pretty much First-Class Talent people.

Otherwise, the U.S. grants Green Cards to hard-working peasants who come here to harvest our crops under pretty bad conditions, for low wages only slightly better than they'd get in Mexico, and peasants in general aren't rapists or criminals, because it's a matter of self-protection in a Community. It's true, Mexico doesn't shoot people who go without permission over its Northern border... but then even Russia no longer prohibits its citizens from leaving the country, and I'm rather pleased by that.

And hey, Mr. Trump, maybe you'd better check up on the Arrest Records of Illegal/Undocumented Aliens -- my impression is that the vast majority of them are Extremely Careful not to break any U.S. laws, because they'd really like to stay here for a few years longer (or even become Citizens), which being caught and deported would entirely fuck-up. (Sure, some of them are drug-dealers or other criminals. Please check the records, in that respect, of U.S.A-ns resident in Mexico.)

Yes, I must have written "per say". Maybe I'll be more careful a month or two from now when I'm living in an Assisted Living Facility. Or Maybe Not.
