IF THERE IS one word that wraps up the mindset of today’s left, that segment so many — both left and right — incorrectly label “liberal,” it is cluelessness.
Above the Rio Bravo this exhibits itself in calls for open borders (try that for a spell, and see where it gets you) and plenty of “free stuff.”
Down here lefty nuttiness exhibits itself mostly in other ways. We are fond of free stuff, of course, but nobody calls for open borders aside from the border to the United States. We want it open for departing but not for entering.
This morning, during our exercise walk around the neighborhood plaza, we passed the scene in the photo above. There is a tech school on the plaza, which means there are teachers, that segment of Mexican society far more dedicated to trouble-making than teaching.
This color combo of red and black is often used by lefty rabble-rousers, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a lovelier example of cluelessness. Red is the color of communism, the philosophy that the state should control all. Black is the color of anarchy, the philosophy of no state whatsoever.
They are polar opposites. Pick one. You can’t have both.
And these are teachers, mind you, not farm hands or donkeys.

While on our exercise walk, I took two more shots to share with you.
ALL YOU need is love. This nutty notion was born in the 1960s with the hippies, and it’s traveled down the years branded into the hearts of the hippies’ children and grandchildren.
The concept’s basic error is that all cultures are of equal value, that people around the world think the same.
The basic error is why so many support open borders, both literally and figuratively.
Open borders in Europe has led to Amsterdam and Sweden and Paris where Mohammedans run amok.
Closer to home, it’s led to places like Dearborn, Michigan, where now live lots of people who want to murder you.
Blame the Beatles. And ignorance.
TRUMP DELIVERED an excellent speech at Gettysburg today. It should be required listening for all voters, especially those who plan to vote for fringe candidates.
The Donald spells out specific actions he will take immediately on becoming president. They are good actions.
