Green Room

Not The Ed Morrissey Show live at 4 ET!

posted at 2:01 pm on June 20, 2013 by

While I’m gone — and if everything goes according to plan, I’ll be over the Mediterranean by this time — Duke, Allan Bourdius, and Mary Chastain will play!  Instead of a TEMS installment, Duke will host one of his NTEMS at 4 ET.  Be sure to tune in on the regular TEMS channel, and join the chatroom too.

I may be back with a show tomorrow to talk about my trip to Jerusalem, so stay tuned!

The show could have been done by leftist loons for all the open borders talk going on. I stopped listening–not because I don’t listen to views I disagree with. It just wasn’t particularly interesting.

Well, I can’t say I’ve ever found myself terribly entertaining so I won’t try to argue the interesting point. 🙂

But, I’m pretty sure none of us said we should have an open border. We all expressed doubt at the government’s ability or desire to make the border secure due to incredibly stupid things like the environmental restrictions on travel that Mary raised at the beginning.

I suppose you could misinterpret my analogy with regards to DRM as being for an open border, but my point was that the best way to create a secure border is to get as many people to come through a normal immigration process as possible. I explicitly referred to an “Ellis Island” style entrance, ID checks, etc. There isn’t a much more closed border than an ocean and a single port to enter.

Perhaps the fact we all agreed it should be a speedy and simple process could be interpreted as an open border as well, but the point of a secure border is to keep the undesirables out. It’s a lot easier to deal with just the undesirables if all the desirableness are prompted to come through the main gate because that process is at the very least less life threatening than trying to cross a desert in the back of a drug cartel’s semi.
