double Huh?

Thanks James, I read this yesterday and thought the same thing. But thought maybe I had missed another post or something that would explain it. Must have to do with Cuccinelli's response to journalists?

(NT) Follow the same train of thought, that's all.

Statute of Liberty

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services, offering a rewrite of the famous Emma Lazarus poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.

Instead of reading "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free," Cuccinelli suggested – in answer to a reporter's question about whether he agreed with Lazarus's poem – that maybe it should say, "Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge."

This is in line with a new Trump administration regulation that could dramatically reduce the number of legal immigrants to the United States by allowing officials to reject green card and visa applicants if they are low-income, have little education or have ever relied on social assistance programs like Medicaid or food stamps.

It could have said, "Give me your indolent, your lazy, your criminal elements, your pimps and prostitutes" but it didn't.

I don't see a connection to Judaism, other than the race of the author. It's not a bible verse.

This is about

The Don's dislike for migrants.
This will block many new migrants from coming in.

Then there is the other piece about expedited deportation.
This piece will help ship out the ones that are already here.

The Don is working it from both ends.

Oh. I forgot to add

"immigrant stock", didn't I?

Stay tuned, guys.

"Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge."

BTW, am I the only one here who thinks that's a sensible remark?
Absolutely the wrong place, time, manner to put it, though.
But, look who his boss is. No, not Dale Carnegie.

So, how do you feel...

I smell heresy.

Or, irrelevance, clickbait, smarmy, at the very least.

I once almost punched-out a customer who

claimed to be a disciple of Dale Carnegie. The man in question was a grade-A jerk who insulted me, my co-worker, and smiled doing it. My co-worker saw my reaction and smoothly gave me a special sign that chilled me out enough to restrain me from almost certainly losing my job for the momentary joy of putting this excuse for a human being on the deck. ( I was young and had a very short fuse for that kind of crap - still working on that particular "character flaw" !). I truly could not believe my ears - and still am amazed this man lived to the age he did with those kind of remarks. But who knows? ; sometimes people like that 'flip' and become nice gentle guys later in life...
