Security? We don’t need no stinkin’ security!

Following is a verbatim repost of a Facebook item that originated a year ago.

Every now and then I agree with me. Go figure.

Food for thought: Should we be concerned about hundreds of millions of packages mailed to the US every year with very loose inspection practices, and about immigration enforcement practices that have allowed millions of people to enter the US illegally and overstay their visas?

Would you allow your children to accept unknown packages without inspection, and to associate freely with complete strangers?

This is a 1960s photo of a boy entertaining himself with a toy grenade in New York Central Park. Might not end well in 2019.

If your latter answers are No and No on behalf of your family, I submit the former answers should be Yes and Yes on behalf of your nation and the rule of law.

If your answers are no on all counts, I hope you aren’t my parents or congressman.

There’s lots of room to discuss how we should go about securing ports, mailboxes and borders. But failing to do so is at best naive and irresponsible.
